    Default BRP Mecha

    Okay, we did it. Rome is available to fans, and it was a success. There are no words to express how good a job the team did. Those of you who own a copy of the book can understand why I am saying so

    Now it is the time to go for new targets. We have a couple more fantasy books due out this year, one is Stupor Mundi 2 (The Baltic Crusades) and the other is possibly a Rome campaign, if Pete has enough motivation for it (start lobbying him, folks!)

    Time for new targets now. Our all-new book, expected for next year, will be "BRP Mecha". I ran a playtest at Tentacles and it was satisfactory. Now it is the time to announce it officially, so that our Site Admin can add it to the "Future Releases" list.

    The book will be a compendium of all the rules needed to play a Mecha campaign that fits the Anime genre. For copyright reasons, it will not include any stats for "official" mechas, but I plan to include rules that encompass at least the following well-known Anime universes: Code Geass, Macross/Robotech, Universal Century/Gundam, and the Go Nagai mechas for which i have already provided some stats here. Players will be able to make up their own versions of the "official" mechas, with all the weapons and gadgets seen in the TV series.

    Given the amount of small, game-oriented models that Bandai Entertainment produces for each of these series, this could easily become the best supported Roleplaying game ever! :cool:

    See you on Mecha Channel!

    Talking I already can't wait for this.

    If I could ever fall in love with an abstract conceptualization - it'd be this topic. This news comes as one of the most beautiful things I could have hoped to hear. I eagerly await this gem!

    But uh, I don't suppose there are any plans to dip into Gunbuster while your at it?

    You will be able to easily make up the details for other Mecha series yourself. I intend to concentrate on series that I know personally, and could have a widespread audience. Putting in Gunbuster or Patlabor could be interesting but I cannot do everything.

    Oh, and of course contributions are welcome. I have already adopted atgxtg's revised SIZ table, if anyone has good ideas submit them and we will include them in the supplement.

    Hey, I understand completely - I just figured I'd take a shot. I hope I wasn't being pushy or anything, I'm just a little too excited. In any event, I'm really looking forward to it!

    BIG success! :thumb:

    Rome campaign, Rome campaign! :happy: (tell me when it's moved into the future releases category!)

    Very nice! I'll get to that shortly. I you have another image than the one I use that you would rather have on the frontpage, send it over!

    Can you tell us anything more about the contents? Got any estimation about pagecount yet? Or what part of 2010 we can be looking for it?

    Cheers,

    Not really mecha, but I would love to see a supplement dealing with an old WWII battleship rebuilt into a space battleship.

    I'd go back to school all over again just to be able to run home after and watch (or read) it.

    Will the Mecha book be just generic rules or will there be some sort of setting... or suggestions for settings/storylines ala the GURPS books?
