Roleplay resources with out Mechs
« on: 06 September 2011, 20:32:42 »
Ok I was wondering where would be a good place to look for information on how to run a game that focuses on...
Battle Armors
Ground Vehicals and VTOLs
Aerospace Fighters.

Any help would be great.

That's a little bit difficult and I'm not quite sure what you mean...

If you mean in BT, I don't think there really are CGL-related Ressources without Mechs. The things you mention are all integrated into the bigger game.
My first stop would be A Time of War (AToW), since it has the rules for roleplaying itself and a ruleset for a skirmish-tabletop (were you can integrate Mechs, but don't have to). Take a look at www.scrapyardarmory.com for some more information and After Action Reports.

So there is no information on running just a Battletech RPG without using Mechs as the focus.  I thought there would be something but I can live with out.  Well the only thing really is to remember send PC after similar vehicles and save mechs for big 'scary' battles.
Thanks anyway for the help.

While, yes, the game is geared more toward the 'Mechs, you can run the game with as much or as little hardware as you want.  A friend mine ran a game for almost a year where we were a Spec Ops squad of infantry.  The most advanced tech we regularly used was (P)AL suits.

ATOW has lots of information that's not about mechs and there's a companion coming up soon.
