Ridonculous Mecha Guns

Mecha Revolver

The mecha revolver is a short barreled pistol that fires large bore rounds. The revolver has a simple reload mechanism, is highly reliable, and generally not integrated into the mech's combat computer. The weapon is generally a surprise, and most are loaded with exotic rounds or armor busters, generally for point blank combat with enemy mecha.

SMG

The SMG for people is an automatic weapon that fires pistol rounds rather than rifle rounds, giving high rate of fire at the general cost of accuracy and range. The Mecha SMG does the same, firing low velocity rounds rather than high velocity. The main use for these weapons is for mecha who are going into combat with non-mecha foes. When fighting infantry and power armor units, a linear gun is not effective, but a rapid fire 50mm gat with explosive rounds is devastating, if ammo hungry.

Shotgun

The shotgun is a short range area attack weapon. The mecha shotgun fires a battleship sized cartridge that can flatten a building, shred an entire infantry platoon, or turn the side of a dropship into a colander. At range they are not effective, and have almost not armor defeating power.

Grenade Launcher

Like a normal grenade launcher, the mecha grenade launcher is just bigger. The average (medium) mecha grenade launcher lobs a 250 kg bomb that explodes as a light artillery strike, or can fire gas, smoke, chemical, or other rounds at medium mecha range.

Gatling Gun

3 to 7 barrels, firing 30mm to 75mm autocannon rounds. The weapon is enormously heavy, and can delivery a devastating amount of firepower at the cost of sucking down literal tons of ammo.

SmartBed

Scrasamax's comment on 2017-02-05 07:41 AM
i would imagine a SmartBed showroom to be something like a combination of a traditional mattress store and an Apple Store, all slick and cleanly put together with that spartan aesthetic going on. Like any durable good I would expect there to be trial periods, and the option to purchase a refurbished SmartBed, and trading in your old bed as part of the down payment for the new one. With the Freemium Economy model, I see a lot of transactions going more and more towards the smartphone model. When you get something new, you don't keep the old, they want that back. Refurb and resell to someone else who isn't buying the cutting edge model.

As for a viagra mod, i have no idea how that would work. I would say that erectile dysfunction has been eliminated as a disease in the CE, but it would still come around from boredom, excessive use, etc, and there would be plenty of augmentations and over the counter treatments for it.

This is fantastic, i love the lost steeds and the steel shadows, and while revolting the last suppers are fascinating.

The hareem cracked me up because I've seen something similar to this in the anime Heaven's Lost property (a flock of magically animated panties flying around the world) Go to Comment

I think the Warlord Ability is the neatest part of this, the ability to built the hierarchy of nefarious races.

Very cool.

The rest is good, and I enjoyed reading it

The only problem I have is the Saber of the Sidewinder, because a sidewinder is a rattlesnake, and not a cobra. Mechanics are fine, just used to live where there were lots of sidewinders.


I very much enjoyed the themed weapon presentation, and it makes me want to make my own cluster of themed weapons. Also, these are very useful for using in a game where the theme is well supported. Cult of Assassins, snekswerd. Snake handling religious cult? snekswerd. Nightmare evil cultists, hissing snekswerd. Go to Comment

This is certainly gonzo, I am not sure if I should like it, or be a little grossed out by it. I think that is a hallmark of some good gonzo material.

The AI business is a little squick, personally I think I would make it something else, or move it into an abstract, because the thought of a group of PCs hauling around a few buckets of space whale knuckle babies is a tad more than I want to try to run in a game.

It's right there on the line of hilarious and horrible.

I would make sure one of the PCs was basically Mark Wahlburg Go to Comment
Castle, a supervillian
NPCs  (Campaign)   (Combative)
Scrasamax's comment on 2017-02-02 04:55 PM
I'm not sure I understand his switching places, is his mind/spirit/anima body hopping, allowing him to possess people and then do what he wants with their body and his skill set? Are they transferred to his body for the duration, or are they repressed while he skin-rides them? Does his body lay comatose if they don't? What are the limits of this ability, and can other resist it?

What is his villainous motivation? What does he want from the world, did it wrong it, or does he merely disprove of it? Does he have a master plan?

On a more basic level, he is incredibly average, brown hair and blue eyes, WASP, marine, and that's all we know about him. I want to know more, I want some sort of insight into Castle to know who he is and what he wants. We don't know what he cares about, what he looks like, if he has any mannerisms, any calling cards or hallmarks that someone on his trail would be able to recognize.

Lots of potential, but lots of questions too.

I like! It opens the door to a whole new version of magic. Spellhunters can equip gear like this, that lets them see spells. They hunt rogue spells, or work teamwork style to bring down powerful enchanters and magic creatures.

A master thief is struck by an insanity spell and thinks he is half cat. He walks around sniffing things, clawing the furniture and licking himself in the manner of a grooming cat. This is a major cause of embarassment to the guild and the master thief must be cured of his insanity.
