2G2BT
« on: April 19, 2017, 08:47:32 PM »
I'm writing a short PbtA game about mech-pilot mercenaries as they struggle to gain fame and fortune as they hop from war zone to war zone.

The flavor inspiration is pretty much Battletech 3025 - the tech readout (I love it, mine's falling apart), not the novels (I haven't read any).

The heart of it is directly based on The Regiment, with a small amount of Urban Shadows somewhere in there as well.

This looks really nice!

I'm not particularly into mecha battles myself, but your moves are really simple and nice, and the way you've put together guidelines for the MC/GM is very slick.

I love the use of "playbook" for the Prodigy, who assigns stats randomly in play. That's very cool and reflects the premise of the character perfectly.
