I'm dying to play this! The rules are streamlined and built for fun (especially for a mecha game!) It's more story and less Battletech. It's the lowest crunch mecha game that I have seen but it still allows for every sort of option. The world is written well enough to give plenty of sandbox ideas without the sort of details that squelch imaginiation. If I can ever find players, I'll update my review to describe how it plays.

Highly recommended if you're a fan of mecha. The setting is wide open and perfect for an old-school sandbox type of GM who is willing to fill in the details. Even if you don't like the setting, you could get a fast-paced set of design and combat rules that you can adapt to other settings.

Remnants is one of those games that you start reading and just don't stop until you're done or you're pulled away from the document by a team of horses. It's that good. It shows love and care in its development process, and clear purpose.

It's quick, gritty, and fun. There's giant robots and medieval feudal civilizations. What's not to like?

My only gripe would come down to be the simplicity of the rules system, but that's also a positive. There's not a whole lotta room for variable outcomes, but that keeps the gameplay running smooth.

With good art, typesetting, and design, Remnants is a sure bet for a game with quick mechanics but a rather deep setting.

Remnants Roleplaying Game is an acessible, easy-to-learn rpg set in a unique world with plenty of opportunities to stomp around in giant mecha.

The Rapidfire ruleset is well thought out, and provides plenty of options for the player characters as well as their Ishin, and as with most mecha games, half of the fun is putting together your custom mech.

The setting is broad, and the Fantasy-slash-Post-Apocalyptic premise means that one could reasonably run all sorts of games. Already I’m thinking of a campaign that is a riff of “Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagan” which also features people finding mecha lost from a time before while fighting beastmen, but I digress.

Overall, Remnants is a solid RPG from Outrider Studios, and should be something to check out if you’re a fan of cinematic mecha rpgs without the hexes and the heatsinks and other fiddly bits that slow things down.

Found this game by accident. Reading through the preview intrigued me, so I bought the PDF.

The book is well written and has a very nice layout. The setting is evocative and really made my imagination and inspiration run wild!

Remnants use the Rapidfire rules, which are new to me. They're very easy to use, yet complex enough that one can play anything thats setting appropriate. I really love it, I have adopted it for all of my free form games where the characters will be mainly human.

The artwork is beatiful, I would have liked more of it though. Read the book cover to cover one can really feel the care and love that was put into this product.

I'd recommend this product to everyone who are itching for some Mecha Rping. But especially to people who'd want to do some indept rping and adventuring between a single GM and Player, which the setting does perfectly.
