If we really want a mecha game, there's Giant Guardian Generation, which is basically Super Robot Wars: The Tabletop RPG.

Ross and I agreed to go ahead a do both games despite the lack of any death on our part (or possibly due to the fact that I'm supposedly a witch).  It just may be a while before we can get to running them with real life commitments and longer campaigns coming up.

Awesome! That's certainly understandable, but I can't wait to hear them none the less, Albatro.

Also, more Save Game. That setting's so cool.

Aaron, sometimes I doubt your commitment to Sparklemotion!

Which is to say I am looking forward to the games and will eagerly consume them once they appear. Also real life is bullshit and I don't recommend it.

I believe Ross has mentioned that he likes the 40k, but isn't really a fan of the Dark Heresy system, though I could be misremembering things.

Also, what the upload schedule now? Duality, Masks, then One Shot? Or is Dungeon World tossed in there somewhere too?

Putting words in Ross' mouth: It's a complex system which he would need to teach to all of the other players for probably only a game or two and they aren't big fans of Warhammer. So, more effort than it's worth basically.

Ah, ok. Yeah, it's definitely a complex system, though 2nd ed was recently released so I'm not sure if it's become more manageable. The books are super pretty though, FFG has some excellent production quality, if a bit pricey.

The third edition beta of Adeptus Evangelion got posted, it's no longer DH based. Links to downloads and all sorts of cool AdEva stuff: http://tinyurl.com/AdEvaRes

I've been playing Skullgirls and it would make for an AWESOME Save Game session. Awesome fighting game characters, Lovecraftian background plot elements (and a restaurant called Little Innsmouth...operated mainly by a race of fishpeople called Dagonians :P), and a giant man who's part saxophone. What's not to love?

And Beowulf is a Pro Wrestler with a folding chair called The Hurting.

Has RPPR ever given thought to playing "Penny for my thoughts"  I've run it for meetup groups a few times and it's always been a blast.

So what will the tone of the Mecha game be?

Excellent choices for mecha genre examples there CADmonkey!

I believe that Mekton Z supports stuff closer to Gundam, Macross, and Patlabor than Mazinger, Getter Robo, or Megas XLR, though that definitely shouldn't stop them from trying. I'm eager to see if it hits peak goofball and goes all Diebuster or Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.

I would fully support a Super Robot Wars type game where all genres exist in a Post-Crisis / every world happened continuity.
