How to roll dice: "dice+2d6" without the quotes in the email field rolls 2d6. "dice+5d42+23" rolls 5d42+23. "noko+dice+2d6" rolls 2d6 without showing the roll in the email field.

In the rules department, you can look at - all global and board specific rules are in full effect. Apart from that, only two rules are important.


Heavy Gear RPG

So, Heavy Gear's been around for 25 years now. Been through 3 RPG editions, multiple miniatures game revisions, gotten an arena and rally game, 2 video games, and a TV show.

Looking back on the old RPG, what did you like about it? What did you not like about it?

I'll start.
Basic mechanics were awesome and simple. Roll X D6 where X is your Skill rating, add Y bonus from associated attribute, compared to Z threshold for success. Character sheets were simple and looked funny being mostly 0's and 1's for everyone's stats with the occasional 2. The worldbuilding was unmatched, Life on Terra Nova is still probably the best setting book of all time. The art and "Gundam 08th MS team"/"Iria Zieram" vibe it all had going on worked really well. Most basic RP gameplay flowed really easily.

However...multiplicative damage resulting in even armor values being functionally identical to lower odd armor values, with prime numbers being particularly capable armor values, this also meant common light weapons like Autocannons often needed stupid high degrees of success to hurt anything. Agi was a stupid god-stat while stuff like Psy that had only a single skill attached to it always became a dump stat. That was silly. Writing quality and game balance issues appeared to become very rife in later releases. Character death was insanely easy and injuries took forever to recover from, actually engaging in gear combat was incredibly dangerous and lethal. Anything larger than a couple gears a side also took forever to play.

What'd you love/hate about Heavy Gear?

It's official: the Second Edition Rules don't want you to play Azzo-Askari with the Rema board and the standard rules on narcotics trade.

Y'know how people say you should always Establish Hood in St. Costance because of the revenue bonus and its defensibility?

Yeah, Azzo-Askari has literally no way to get that: try as I may, I cannot get around to use their Defensive Ability to work, the Paranza-boosted Enforcers aren't sturdy enough to resist most Gangs' attacks on it, nor they are cheap enough to be sent as cannon fodder to stall conquest.

This wouldn't be a problem, if it wasn't for the fact that you cannot trade in arms, so the second most-lucrative option is right out, and their standard Gangers eat shit from eveyrone else without the combat bonuses other boards like Barn or Tumpai have.

Can somebody please explain how am I supposed to play with it, given how common the Reman board is?

When your world ends, these will crawl out of the ashes over the bones of the great beasts and the ruins of your cities.

The LotR monopose plastics are absolute perfection and you can't convince me otherwise.

Especially when they first came out, £12 for a box of 24. I wish I'd got into LotR instead of just being a 3rd edition 40k kid.
