The New Year is a great time to pick up a New Game, so we've marked this digital title down by 25%! To find more savings, visit our New Year, New Game sale page.

Tiny Frontiers: Mecha and Monsters is the first expansion to the science fiction role-playing game, Tiny Frontiers. Utilizing the minimalist, swift and flexible ruleset of Tiny Frontiers, you take on the role of jockeys who pilot massive robots, defending the world and cities of man from threats, giant aliens or monsters and much more!

Alternative, utilize the Kaiju rules to play giant monsters, telling stories as massive forces of nature, bent on destruction!

This book contains numerous "micro-settings", small, evocative settings designed by industry veterans, fiction authors, and top level talent! Micro-settings allow you to get right into the thick of the gaming with minimal prep, and loads of fun! You can play without Tiny Frontiers, but adding Tiny Frontiers to your game dramatically expands your options and the stories you tell!

What are you waiting for? 

Get Stompy!

I think it needs to be said, if anyone else is wondering like I did, that this is a complete standalone game despite being advertised as the an expansion of Tiny Frontiers.

So again you do not need original Tiny Frontiers to use Tiny Frontiers: Mecha and Monsters.

Hello, I was going through the Mecha and Monster creation rules. The Mecha Scout and Knight Classes are identical respectively to the Monster Bakemono and Oni Bioforms, but Scout/Mokin and Titan/Daikaiju are different. Scout has an extra Movement than Mokin. Titan has an extra Weapon than Daikaiju.

Is this by design or a copy and paste error?

good evening I'm doing a follow-up to this post "We will issue coupons to those who bought the PDF that are good for equal credit toward the POD. So no need to wait if you'd like to see the PDF now. I haven't received my coupons to order pods of the books, can you help with this?

So, ah, there are two identical files called PrintFriendlyDigital. Which one is the updated one?
Customer avatar
Stewart W April 24, 2017 3:01 pm UTC
I'm uncertain why the product page suggests there are three files. We've uploaded two and the one you want is "Mecha And Monsters.pdf (Print friendly version)".
Customer avatar
Geoffrey W April 24, 2017 6:19 pm UTC
When you uploaded the new ones, did you remember to delete all the old ones? Because I know DTRPG doesn't do it automatically.

Stewart W April 24, 2017 7:19 pm UTC
Yes, but thanks for the reminder. I checked before I answered you earlier.

We will issue coupons to those who bought the PDF that are good for equal credit toward the POD. So no need to wait if you'd like to see the PDF now.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
