Traveller: Mech Squadrons Preview 3

Rounding out the previews of Mech Tech ‘n’ bot: Mech Squadrons, we take a look at what else in included in the book besides mechs. There are three mech driver careers included within: one military, one mercenary and one civilian. Today, we’re showing the whole of the civilian career today. You’ll notice that players can gain the Driver (walker) skill before starting play and the new Mustering out benefit “Mech”. You can purchase a mechs with ship shares, the same as you can a ship. The Mech benefit grants 5 ship shares when purchasing a mech and 2 when purchasing anything else.

I am told that the book will be leaving the printer tomorrow which means Mech Squadrons could be in stores before the end of the month. Preorder Mech Tech ‘n’ bot: Mech Squadrons today to get your copy as soon as possible. Available at Paizo.com, Sci-Fi Genre, or Your Local Gaming Store.

Traveller Mech Squadrons Preview 2

Today in our series of previews for Mech Tech ‘n’ bot: Mech Squadrons, we take a look at two more mechs. This pair (a Sigma 135P Personal Defense Mech and a Guardian 995T Assault Artillery) differ from the two previewed yesterday because they are not listed as “Vehicles” in their mass combat stat block. While distinctly vehicles, neither of these behave like vehicles when assembled in mass numbers in terms of damage output, range, and ability to sustain damage. They behave like other types of squadrons. The Personal Defense Mech takes and dishes out damage more like Heavy Infantry while the Assault Artillery from Guardian deals damage more like, well, artillery. Both of these squadrons possess numbers in their respective units for vehicles. This is fully explained in Mech Squadrons both how it works and why it works this way.

Like all gamers, we at Jon Brazer Enterprises cannot help but quote Monty Python every chance we can get. So we decided to include a little homage to The Life of Brian in this book. You can see the final outcome here in the People’s Front of Londonia. Enjoy.

Tomorrow we preview one of the three careers to let players start the game off with the Driver(walker) skill and possibly begin play with a mech of their own. Preorder Mech Tech ‘n’ bot: Mech SquadronsNow at Paizo.com, Sci-Fi Genre, or Your Local Gaming Store.

Traveller: Mech Squadrons Preview 1

With Mech Tech ‘n’ bot: Mech Squadrons now being at the printer, it is time for some long awaited previews. These are appropriately timed with a big week in space history. Yesterday was both the anniversary of Yuri Gagarin’s historic flight and the anniversary of the launch of the space shuttle Columbia STS-1. Today is the anniversary of the Apollo 13 launch, where engineers at mission control were supermen in finding ways to bring our astronauts home. Yes, this is indeed a big week in space history. May mankind walk among the stars and be the giants we are destined to someday be.

Back to discussing mechs, we at Jon Brazer Enterprises have three previews for everyone this week. The first shows two mechs presented in the book. The top half of every page shows a picture of each mech and its stat block. The bottom half describes a squadron that uses this mech and its mass combat stat block. Click here to download the first preview.

Stop back on JonBrazer.com throughout the week for more previews of Mech Tech ‘n’ bot: Mech Squadrons. Preorder Now at Paizo.com, Sci-Fi Genre, or Your Local Gaming Store.
