Steel Roses: the HeartQuest Guide to Mecha

ZIP File

The HeartQuest guide to mecha is back -- big stompy robots and spikey-haired pilots!

Hold on tight! Mecha are once again trampling their way into HeartQuest. With advanced combat rules and a flexible mecha creation system, Steel Roses will thrust your characters into action like they have never seen. Will your character become an Ace, or will she end up a tally on the side of her adversary's mecha? Sporting innovative Artificial Intelligence and pilot/mecha interdependence rules, Steel Roses is a must-have for fans of shoujo anime and mecha alike.

Steel Roses is a core HeartQuest book, designed to work seamlessly with HeartQuest Core Rules. Accept no substitutes -- look for the HeartQuest core book logo.

Pages: 51 (Including front and back covers.)

Heartquest was FUDGE before FUDGE was cool (shoutout to all the FATE 3.0 folks out there). An introduction to a type of adventure/romance that I had not been exposed to before, it helped bring relationship issues and struggles to the forefront of the [...]

Steel Roses and Mecha Aces for Fudge are very similar in their approach to the animie mecha system. Both are excellent. I have both and use them both. One has more adventures and more settings, one has more information on playing robot characters (art [...]

I got this product to have a look at how someone else had adapted Fudge for use with big mecha. To be honest, I wasn't that impressed. It's not that it's a poor product, but it's just not very useful in terms of information it supplies. But maybe it is [...]

An excellent resource for someone wishing to add Mecha to their Fudge games, whether using the HeartQuest ruleset or not. Surprisingly, they managed to work Mecha (which usually takes the crunchiest of rulesets to work out) and do them in something as [...]

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.
