Announcing the Mecha Quickstart

I am doing this to make it official: there will be a Quickstart of Mecha by GenCon.  Or else my name’s not Chris Perrin.  I’ve been playing around with the game for long enough, it’s time for everyone to get a look at it.  Well, everyone who stops by the booth and requests a copy.  Or asks me for one.

Now, you may ask, what’s a Quickstart?  Is it an ashcan?

Good question.  No.  I tend to use the Ashcan Front’s definition of an ashcan as being both 90% done and facing a design challenge I cannot solve without help.  Mecha is somewhere in the high 98% done (basically just editing and a bit more setting fluff) and it will be publishable.

The Quickstart will basically be like the Lite edition of an iPhone app or like what Wizards did with their intro 4th Ed adventure.  If you get a copy of the Quickstart, you will have everything you need to play Mecha in the Steel Gunner SRS (Setting Reference Schematic aka setting.)  You will have four pregens, an adventure, and a quick overview of the scene and combat rules.  So, you will have absolutely everything you need to enjoy Mecha and play any campaign you want except Chaacter Generation (sorry, can’t give it all away yet!)

So, if you’re going to GenCon, I’ll be announcing where you can pick up your copy for FREE and if you’re not, very shortly the PDF will be available for download.  Download it, play it, tell me if you like it, and we’ll go from there.

  1. Can’t wait to see the fast play. The playtest you ran for us was loads of fun. Soon to be on the top of the IPR top ten.

  2. It would be nice to see this…
    sounds cool.

  3. Thanks. We have art locked down and the text is almost finished. It’s going to be good to see Mecha published in any form!!
