So, I don't know about you guys, but I think the MechWarrior RPG is pretty fucking awful. On the other hand, I love the Storytelling System's elegant simplicity and accessibility. Along these lines of thinking I have begun a small project - 31st Century Darkness. Which isn't a BattleTech game set in the World of Darkness setting (no vampire MechWarriors, sorry), but rather a Storytelling System adaptation for making MechWarriors, to be used in a Classic BattleTech RP game. Because RPing as MechWarriors in between the stompy 'Mech action is sometimes very fun. I'm even having resident design wunderkind Pytak make me custom character sheets for it!

So, I'm looking for some input with regards to balance and other mechanics. I'm trying to think of how I might incorporate variations on standard character creation based on backgrounds in a way that doesn't make everyone from a certain region seem shoehorned into the same role. Any ideas that would help differentiate the way characters play from one another are welcome. And I would also like to fill out one-dot Talents more...

Here's the link!

(11:38:04 AM) Merf: I can touch everything.
(11:38:07 AM) Merf: Prepare your anus
(11:38:50 AM) Merf: It is okay. I am your father, which makes it totally not creepy

I agree, storytelling system is very flexible, a friend of mine run a doctor who adventure with it.

I would name "Weak Spot II" "Ranger", for giggels from MWLL players...

Yes Leeko, quite close.

Well asides the larping, but I can't even talk about that without laughing and remembering shagging an ork lady.

I don't think anyone was surprised. It's been years and all we've seen are tech demos and really vague tweets. Still, I was really sad to hear this.

Yeah likewise, I thought it would be a really interesting concept.

But still, it makes sense from an economic perspective, for CCP I mean.
