Another 80's staple was the paper and pencil roll playing game played with real live filthy humans. Let's face it... computer RPG's back then were a novelty compared to the marathon gaming sessions playing RPG's with actual friends. My nerd buddies and I at Michigan Tech actually played Palladium Books' Robotech RPG. Yeah, I even admit it publicly. I can't say I remember much about the game system, but the idea of the mecha and the setting were enough to be compelling. That same crowd also played Battletech when the best mechs were the ones taken directly from Macross, Dougram and (in at least one case, and so far out of scale as to be laughable) the movie Crusher Joe. Those designs are long past available.... sort of.
Oh, no. Another kickstart. Yeah, all that for the current price of a Queadluun Rau kit. And the stretch goals just a keep on coming. Miria is included in the set, and a squadron of three QR suits is currently a $30 add-on. One upcoming stretch goal is to switch the male version of the power armor (Nousjadeul-Ger... yeah, Zentraedi names are weird) to be included in this pledge level rather than extra cost. I'm kind of hoping that adding QR's to this level is one of the high level goals.
Here is the scale compared to something we can all get a feel for... it looks to me like 15mm terrain might work well for them.
