A bulky mech firing at something out of frame, with other mech batteling in the background

This week’s PDF highlight is an older one from “The Before Times” and was made because I haven’t done enough sci-fi stuff – Plus I had recently re-watched a film about giant robots/mechs beating the doo-doo out of giant monsters. The though now occurs to me that I *could* make a companion piece about giant monsters to go alongside with it and that it could work well for any appropriate genre…sigh…another for the to-do list heh!

Equipment Maker Scifi Edition Volume 2 – Mechs

Humanoid vehicles and engines of war!

A Mech, sometimes called a mecha, is a term used to describe a giant robot like machine, often humanoid shape, controlled by an internal pilot or pilots.

They can range in size and design, from ones that act as almost a set of clothing, to giant building sized behemoths of destruction and more, require the use of multiple pilots and operators. They posses, albeit smaller versions, weapons and defences sometimes found on starships.

They can move about in urban environments and act as peacekeepers, defence units or even for law-enforcement.

Whatever their purpose or role, a mech is as varied as the ones who use them. This generator series of tables is designed to help you flesh out the details.
