Mechasys Big Guns and Blazing Swords


You've built your custom mecha, now arm it with its own custom weapons!  Big Guns and Blazing Swords expands on the mecha construction rules found in Mechasys, allowing you to create your own weapons. Starting with basic ranged or close quarter attacks, players can add in styles to change the attack to energy blades, beam attacks, or missile launchers. Enhance those weapons further by applying traits that improve damage and range, and add item qualities. With over a million possible combinations, players can create virtually any weapon for their mecha!

In addition to the rules explaining how to customize your weapons, there is also a form fillable Weapon Designer sheet with self-calculating fields to make the process that much easier.

Note: The rules found within this supplement reference the mecha construction system established in Mechasys A Mecha Construction and Campaign Supplement.

Very cool new weapon qualities and just a great supplement for designing hi-tech weapons! Anyone playing an Artificer type character in my SUPERS setting should definitely get this too! It really serves as a great guide for those looking to emulate the weapons big mechs use!

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.
