Units: Amago, Melee Type


MECHA TECH LEVEL 2


The Amago is a first generation mass produced Small SRACU made by the humans race. They are humanoid like most of the other combat mecha made by the human race. They are the most commonly found of all mechas from the remains of the Mobius Empire. They stand about seven meters tall and can carry its own weapons, which allows the armaments to be easily interchangeable. Being a first generation mecha it does not have the power relays to support high powered weapons like beam based weapons. The Amago melee type is an Amago that has been upgraded to wield melee based weapons with more power. They commonly carry multiple melee weapons, pilots and shield.

Here are the Character Cards of the Amago, MeleeType. Click on the pictures to get a better look at them. More to come at a later date.



You might have noticed that the DC Tally has change slightly. This is due to the fact a friend of mine friend show me how to do it in Visual Basic, so I do not have to write a if statement for ever number and I can add a marker "/" to show the half way mark for several game effect. As it is a minor change I will not be replacing the other character cards let.

MS Wars Update, 17th of January, Plans of the Future

Sorry for the late update. To tell the truth there is not much to report about again. I have add a ton of new character cards to the database, I have found some nice looking wings which I will be making copies of so the I can use them on future mechas and I have not done any work on story still. However I might have an idea, if I un-dig the Mecha D20 rules and run a game role-play game based in the Mobius world past or how it is now. Hmmm that is a good idea; it could help shape the game's background. Need to get thinking on this. Well that is it for this update. I will be doing MS Wars Update ever month now instead on every fortnight and posts will stay every five days too. Here is the plan of up and coming posts until the next update:
