A Virtual Mekton arena
A vast strech (about 50 square Km) of mecha-sized water pools,
surrounded by sharp, impassable (period) Chinese hills (you know
how they are). Many mecha-sized, too, bamboo trunks are jutting
out of the water, so you can make your mecha walk over them-Piloting
roll vs 10) or jump from one to other (Piloting roll vs 15). Anyway,
there patchs of bamboo are small enough (2-3 hexes gruped or on
line) that you'll have to jump from one to other sooner or later.
I'm sure someone's bound to recognize them :)
By the way, for some strange reason, all Fligth and Jumpjets are
reduced to 1/3 normal MA.
Falling from one of these bamboos will have the effect of having
your mecha drop to the bottom of one of these, 12m deep, lakes,
which, by the way, are a Neutral Zone (while all the other pilots
are laughing at you); as the mek rises on, it will look somewath
different..it will be a SD one, to begin with, with KWI stat randomly
rolled from +5to -5 (1d10/2, Kawaii if original roll odd, Kowai
if original roll even). It will look like something the GM chooses
based only on his toryuous whim, too.
This patetic condition shall remain untill the mecha actually
FALLS (directly jumping into the water doesn't fool anyone, much
less the VM program) again into ANOTHER pool. Next time it falls
into water, it will revert, and...
Not to need saying, this arena is extremelly popular.
- If a SD mecha manages to "Kill" a no-SD one, it will fall into
the water, become a SD and get Bonked -i.e., it regenerates all
- If a no-SD mecha "kills" a SD mecha, it will be Bonked -falling
into the water, healing all damage, and becoming a no-SD mecha.
For the moment.
- If a SD mecha gets Bonked by another SD mecha, it will fall into
the water -see above.
- If a no-SD mecha gets killed by a no-SD mecha, it is toast.
SD mecha are allowed to enter the battle, and they retain their
KWI stat, but they have to actually FALL (as above) to transform
into an alternate (on this case, no-SD) form. The battle rages
on until there is only one mecha left on its original form.
