Re: Incarnum & Dragonmech

The brow bind is genius. I don't think it is overly powerful, but then I haven't tried it out yet either. As for the feet bind, I love the concept, but I think it may be a little weak. +1 to +5 points of damage to a single attack, once/encounter? I'd suggest something like having the damage apply to...

Re: Lunar Biology 101 with Prof. Willowstar

Against one wall, a brooding hulk of a man with an aura of calm efficiency has been sitting quietly. He wears heavy armor and has a chattersword strapped to his back. The shimmer of a protective psionic power engulfs him. The human Kallor is gaining impetus as a new warlord, uniting all the terrestr...

Scary :D That con breath weapon is downright nasty. 1d6 con damage, plus nausea, every 1d4 rounds? That alone makes me worried about the survival of anyone up against one of these things.

Sweet :D Nothing wrong being associated with the greatest show ever created! No way am I going to lump the Irontooth clans in with the Stenians! IMO, at least as far as it makes sense in my head, it works something like this; Stenian Confederacy = the Alliance, all rules and order carried out with a...

Just watched Ariel and War Stories again. Ariel got me wondering, what would be the equivalent of the Core Planets?
Are Stenian City-Mechs the best bet?

Depends on the power source and size (as detailed on various tables pages 75 onward).
For tactical speed (ft/round) to overland speed (mph) conversion, check out the table on the bottom of page 71.
All of the above are in the main DMech book.

I never really realized how intensive a psionic weapon style is, if done efficiently.

And I'm just getting through midterms, so I should be back in the game soon.

Howdy Omni! I'm not sure what use the jump could be other than movement, and as a massive aid in scouting. But I like the idea of a 'kreen attaching itself to a mech, stowing away until it gets whatever information it is looking for. After all, with 4 claws and massively powerful legs, sticking ones...

Heh. I completely missed that one! My bad. But honestly, do you know any melee-oriented character who would be happy settling for 1d6 base damage? Haha I don't!

How about waiting for a big battle to blow over between, lets say, Stenian and Irontooth forces. When the main of the battle is over, time for the group to rush in and salvage anything they can, before the other forces can get their stuff together. Perhaps one of the clansmen has developed the first...

Sweet! on Highpoint, a cargo mech that didn't appear to have any armament would fit itself constantly targeted by Irontooth clans, rust riders, orcs, killer clowns, etc. That is what I was thinking.

While most people assume warforged, as living constructs, would be able to work 24 hours/day, (I believe) it was decided they could only work on any given task for 8 hours in a given day, just like the fleshbags.

I guess that could work, but then the treads would have to be absolutely massive in proportion to any mech they were built on. It could probably be pulled off, but I dunnoe.

Definitely thinking of building a tank now, though.
