>>63404627Well, have you played, op? How'd it go?
Oh shit i have this book. I’ve always loved the random character generator in the book but haven’t tried playing since i was a kid. Anyone here ever actually run it? What was your experience like?
Jeez, OP, I can't keep yer thred alive by meself.

>>63404627Is it good?
>>63405057I'm poster #2, I've not played yet, but I hear it's about the best generic giant robot system out there. Apparently it is fairly adaptable to various genres, but I have yet to test-run it.>>63404979

Played as part of a squad of troops on a Martian colony. I got a bit greedy (so I thought) during character gen and took a flaw that gave me minuses when I used cyber interface equipment. (surgical rejection was part of it) Or Mecha had a partially integrated system to assist piloting. I had shitty wires and some combat penalties. Alien armours started showing up and raiding. MFW The GM had planned all along for them to reverse hack our characters through our cyberlinks.
>>63406851The guys at R Talsorian said they will be pushing Zero out after CP2077 launches and that they are also finally releasing Gundam Senki around then too
>>63408609That kickstarter made me feel shat upon.
>>63408609>finally releasing Gundam SenkiDon't tease me like this, anon.
>>63408609Are there any good Gundam resources out, Licensed or Fan, for Mekton already?
>>63410795I found some online a year or so ago but lost my computer and the link then.>>63408905Not teasing, they discussed it at a recent con just earlier this year.
does anyone have a favorite supplement? or setting?
Havent played yet but want to mix it with Cyberpunk.A group of local hooligans get scooped up in an ever escalating life of crime that starts with trying to hack into disney and ends up trying to rob a central bank. As they flee the government the gang ends up in an abandoned military warehouse that has the skeleton of a mecha prototype that the govt deemed too expensive to maintain, but a bunch of 20 y/o criminally rich dumbasses mod to hell and backI want my players to equip it with Tequila water cannons and 50cal heroine filled bullets
>>63413359be careful anon, mekton and 2020 don't really mix that well above 'power armor' level suits or so I've been told
if cyberpunk 2077 does well, would anyone want a mekton vidya? hypothetically, what would you hope for from it?
>>63404627Thanks for the link Br/op
>>63414812A map on par with the Just Cause games, but with RPG character interaction. High customization for both the aesthetics and function of the mech. A deal with Sunrise for a UC Gundam version of the game.
>>63413463 Fuzion is a lot closer.
can we generic /MechaRPG/ thread?askin'
>>63421849Not OP, but I doubt anyone would mind.
>>63421849MZ, from what i understand, can do ALL giant robots.
>>63422866So can BCG/Z
>>63423790Tell us moar.
>>63423995Just head over to the Discord and chat with the creator and others who play the game. It's a pretty good group.https://discord.gg/vdxnwv
>>63413463>>63413463It works pretty well with Roadstriker level mecha (power suit to landmate size).Having just a couple of super robots distracts from street level cyberpunk shit, so does military style stuff associated with 'real robot'.You can certainly just add some CP2020 stuff to any Mekton campaign, but unless you are focusing on the "high-tech low-life", it misses the cyberpunk bit.Megazone 23, Dominion Tank Police, Bubblegum Crisis (and others) provide a look at what a cyberpunk style game with some smaller mecha can be like.>>63414812I'm not super keen on any of the established settings for Mekton (unless you count Jovian Chronicles). A big thing for me is the mecha creation, which is also kind of like setting creation. A game set in Algol with pre-set Mekton designs (even if they are somewhat modular as in HBS Battletech) is not super interesting to me.Now, a game that was a little more like Master of Orion crossed with Rule The Waves, but with giant robots - that is fucking awesome.A game with a small group of player characters and a super robot or three versus the weird giant badguys, also including mecha customization, that would be pretty cool too.
>>63421849I am OP, sure I don't mind

>>63424952that link ended up sending me to a penis size video
>>63425236it was supposed to be my reaction to the other anon's idea
>>63413463Oh nah mekton can be absolutely insane and I am banking on that. I want to shift it from a grittier mafia-gta tone to a wonky saints row as the group begins to build out mecha, itd basically be a soft change in system.How I’d control the landing is simply to have a hefty price and resource tag to whatever they want to make.
>>63428339>How I’d control the landing is simply to have a hefty price and resource tag to whatever they want to make.Particularly if their Mecha takes damage and replacement parts are very expensive and hard to come by.
>>63428548>>63428339What would be the spinning rims of the pimped out mecha world? >>Yo dawg, we heard you like ranged attacks, so we gave your mech starburst missiles so you can fire missiles that fire missiles.
>>63428339shame the mech in saints row was disappointingly normal
Hey guys i just started to become interested into Mekton. Do you have any advises for a new player (or as i know my friends.. lets be honest... a new DM)?
>>63432313be prepared for a lot of math, and to watch builds the players give you like a fucking hawk
>>63405851Hey! Here's >>63406852 more rolls - what'd we get?
>>63439401i liove Mechahowever,in the USA, mecha gaming is down to Battletech or some odd homebrew.i got the original MTZ stuff, and 3 expansions cheap at a Con. i like it, but beats me if i can get the drones that maker up the modern game community to play it.
>>63404627I really like the lifepath systemThe rest of the system is kind of... Meh.
>>63404627I own the game and rules-wise it's pretty simple.Never got to GM it though.
