Fragged: Dieselpunk Mecha

The screech of steel meeting steel, the rattle of gunfire, and the pungent reek of gasoline fills the air as mechanical monstrosities battle across a rural horizon of rolling rocky hills, quaint farmsteads and horse-drawn carts...

Meanwhile, the cities are technological wonders: vast skyscrapers tower over sparkling city streets as hovering public trams rattle through overflowing shopping districts and over teeming crowds. They are places of great thought and culture on the surface, but are rife with corruption, intrigue, and espionage as politicians and industrialists vie for power, and scientists steal each other’s secrets.

The year is 1945. The nation-states of Cronicia are immersed in a catastrophic war that has raged on for over a decade. The formerly impassable mountain ranges that once separated the great powers of the People’s Republic of Gerim and the Brashja Empire mean little when faced with Cronicia’s newest wonders, including anti-gravity parachutes and massive sky-fortress zeppelins, which can insert forces directly into tactical locations.

This war threatens to tear Cronicia apart as technology advances at an unprecedented rate, turning major cities into majestic hubs of civilization while simultaneously robbing the smaller villages and surrounding nations of their resources. The only balancing powers remaining are the Nomadic Houses, a loose confederation of people formed by the innumerable refugees forced to flee their homelands due to the countless wars fought over many centuries. Nomadic pilots turn to mercenary work as a chance to earn a living for themselves and protect their Houses from erasure.

Players will (generally) take control of one of these Nomadic mercenaries, fighting in their own private Mecha for coin, fame or lofty ideals. The Nomads, who occupy central Cronicia, are in prime locations to strike against all sides, and possibly each other.

But as the nations of Cronicia fixate on war, they overlook greater threats. News of mechanical undead horrors, known as the Hollows, flood in from the south. Clandestine reports hint at occult covens and saucer-like unidentified flying crafts. If Cronicia does not find a path towards peace and uncover the true powers fuelling the land’s endless wars, the entire continent may be doomed...

      Rule System on the Product Information bar says "Battletech" but I don't think that is the case at all.

      Battletech in terms of feel for the Mechs. Ie: Big, Heavy Mechs where you have to manage Heat and shoot off limbs, etc...

      I get what you mean, but it's misleading. Although sadly a lot of publishers deliberately misuse these tags, which makes browsing products for a particular thing a pain...

      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.
