Good points. Actually, I always considered Jovian Chronicles to be Canadian
Gundam (Ianus Press and Dream Pod 9 are Canadian companies). Their Votoms
line ... I mean, Heavy Gear line is also true to anime, while their Tribe 8
line strongly reminds me of Fist of the North Star meets Valley of the Winds.


PS-I'm working out a Lightning Strike: Gundam conversion, hence my great
interest in Gundam Simulations board game.
