        Mekton need a little bit more the Cyberpunk sharper and harder
edge. The ability to get turned into ground chuck and hitting the
gurgling and the corpsman quickly tries to put in a chest tube to keep
lungs from collapsing and stop the breathing as angry little copper
hornets crack past each capable of doing the same to unarmored flesh.

        Obviously there's no security personnel walking down the mechaline
with a loaded weapon...? Wait that would end your campaign somewhat
and it seems like Feds laways end uip with egg on their faces :P.

        With only 20 RX79s and one Ez8 (shouldn't it be
Gundam Jumbo; this is a M4 medium tank. Real treadheads
don't call their rides after generals that's an British
abomination :P) pushes my suspension of disbelief. Why
couldn't they retconned it so that the previous Gundams
became basis for more RX79s and Easy Eights. If you
have something that can go out and kick the enemy's teeth

a one shot prototype over and over until Wanker Boy decides to
go on his Napoleonic fit and the Feds let him have his time in
the sun before giving him his much deserved Waterloo. I think
hanging, drawing and quartering would be much too good to Chuckie
the Space Nazi.

by trying to build the mobile armor of the week. Get it to the

        Thank God. It seems like the estrogen brigade in the
US is managing to ruin a perfectly good (well nobody should
be that pretty; combatants like the war they fight should be ugly,
brutal and vicious) mech series.

        A cat... Guys don't have cats... Real men wear T-shirts that
says "Cat: The Other White Meat".
