Re: Vehicle rules?

It basically comes down to "You don't need crew, just pilots and gunners." The stat block would be simplified, and you could use the maneuverability and a pilot check...Which, I see I forget to include that variant... Pilot (Dex): Normally, piloting a vehicle in regular conditions requires no roll i...

Vehicle rules?

I've been tinkering with advancing the Dragonmech setting a few decades game-time, enough to produce some serious changes. One of the things I'd like to do is simplify the mechs. Someone on another forum made some rules for vehicles which look interesting enough to use. The basics is that a vehicle ...

The basis of the Midas Meteor: -Major Creation can create precious metals which will last 20 minutes per caster level. -Major Creation can create materials by the cubic foot, with one cubic foot per caster level With me s...

Re: Homebrewing the Steamborg

Eureka! Well, okay, I got back into my Dragonmech books, and again I was stricken by how the Steamborg doesn't get much besides big numbers. So I took another look, took a step back, and came up with a variant that has a decent increase in power and I'm happy with the idea. The first thing that need...

Re: DragonMech Questions

Much obliged.

Now...

It says BAB +25 in the entry for a Young Lunar Dragon. Is that the actual BAB, or the attack bonus? My muzzy mental calculation says that'd be about right for 17 HD of full BAB, +7 or 8 for Strength.

Not the same kind of Death Knight as Loss, though. This Death Knight is the result of 5 levels in a PrC. The sky was heavy with clouds and the air thick with fog, as it'd been for a long time and, for all anyone knew, would always be. It created its own dim, bluish light here. The air was cool and h...

Re: Power Sources

Oh, I don't believe I mentioned the idea of Manpowered mech being powered by golems on treadmills or something.

Heck, you could make a pilot golem that's got some additional magic words on it--enough that it can work a crossbow or throw rocks as it peddles away to keep the mech going.

Eh, you could make a case that DnD is about morally ambiguous behavior anyway.
