Mechagenesis: The True20 Robotic Roleplay Sourcebook

Mechagenesis: The True20 Robotic Roleplay Sourcebook


The Earth has been invaded by the Legion, an army of extraterrestrial shape-changing robots bent on galactic domination. They are opposed by the Global Defense Corps, brave humans who sacrifice themselves each and every day to preserve
humanity, but they are not alone.

You are a member of the Alliance, a valiant cadre of exiled robots who once fought them and lost. Now, you muST rise up and DO WHAT YOU COULD NOT DO BEFORE- end the scourge of Legion once and for all.

The time of Mechagenesis is now!

Rules are included for making giant robots that can transform into cars, weapons, technological devices, animal shapes, and even buildings. It contains a simple system for designing futuristic weapons, vehicle combat (naturally!), and special powers based on the core True20 powers. It even has rules for combining multiple robots into a larger humanoid robot with even greater strength and power. The rules also allow for a player to run a robot or a human.

Just a tad overpriced. The 'premium edition' really isn't all that visually pleasing. Also, half the chapters have big empty spaces for art, but no actual art. I own Mechamorphosis (the precursor of sorts for original d20 that is the basis for this Tru [...]

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.
