Post Roll to Dodge - Mecha ON HOLD
Roll to Dodge - Mecha



Backstory: The players are Mecha pilots aboard the USS Exoneration, a stolen US Aircraft Carrier under the command of Captain Lovegale. The Exoneration is currently parked somewhere off the coast of western Australia. The players are all part of a newly formed 6-man squad, Team 4B, meant to work together for missions to the land and in combat against other mecha.

You'll all be on the same team, going up against other Mecha, and as a departure from the norm, your humble DiceMeister will be playing among you. Don't worry, I won't steal a slot.
I'll be departing from the rules above just a teeny bit for this one. Biggest difference is that I'll be using a D10 this time, instead of a D6. So the rolls go like this:
1: Epic Failure
2-3: Failure
4-6: Moderate Success
7-8: Success
9: Epic Success
10: Overshot

For those who want to join in, here's the character sheet you'll need to fill out.

An opening!


Pilot

Name: Conrad Fowl
Age: 31
Physical Description: Large beak-like nose, and messy brown hair. Skinny and not very muscular.

Mecha

Name: Carrion
Height/Wieght: 9 meters, 5.5 tons
Physical Description: Bipedal Mech. Has legs similar to that of an Ostrich as well as wing-like jets on its back. Lightly armored, the entire mech is covered with color-changing parts to aid in camoflouge.
Classification: Light
Combat Role: Scout
Primary Weapon: Rail Gun that fires 70mm projectiles
Secondary Weapon: None
Abilities: Ghost - Activates the color-changing plates in the suit to camoflouge.
Rocket Dash - Runs at top speed while activating the jets, making the very fast/hard to hit. (disables "Ghost" if the ability is active)
Jump Jets - Fires a burst of the jets to jump long distances. The "Ghost" ability (if active) is disabled from the start to the end of the jump.

SuperWeapon: Suicide Run - Pours all jet fuel into the jets, hyper-accelerating the mech forward (MUCH faster than rocket dash). Jets are melted after use (can't use Rocket Dash or Jump Jets anymore) and a collision with any object during the run causes the mech's power core to explode in a very violent way.

Cricket, this isn't gonna be long after this RtD. Humans are still on Earth, and Armageddon has recently happened. Space travel is the last thing on everyone's minds. Your mecha is all good, but your backstory is gonna need some changing.

I'll just do away witthe backstory.

Edit: And yeah, my mech is pretty light. It's not supposed to be a hulking war machine, it's a light-weight and fast scout that attacks from far away. Also, the mech can be used in an urban setting more easily than something bigger.

Cricket, your mech really wouldn't survive in battle at that weight. I mean, it'd have to be a bare skeleton with a gun and motors. Put it in the high teens, and it'll be acceptable.

MECHA HEIGHTS AND WEIGHTS 101:
Mecha weights are typically between 20-100 tons. A little above or below is fine. MLC, that is not a little.
HEIGHT. 7-17 meters OR 23-56 feet are typical heights. Again, a bit of deviation is fine. 30 meter tall mechs aren't.
All based on BattleTech, which I am probably safe in assuming is the standard for mechas.

Also, JJ yours is fine.

Post Re: Roll To Dodge - Blue
Pilot
Name: Mikhail Chen
Age: 23
Description: Extremely dark brown eyes, short black hair, mid-short height, average musculature. Acts in a manner suggesting aversion to prolonged social contact as well as lack of sleep. Is concise and brief in all communication he is otherwise forced to make.
Backstory: Unwilling to tell. Apparently got into mechs to survive, according to people that have known him longer.

Mecha
Name: Apparently unnamed. Known as "The Hunter" by others.
Height/Weight: 10M/28 Tons
Physical Description: An average sized light humanoid mecha. Optimised for speed and stealth, it runs on all four limbs when necessary whilst entering a more bipedal stance for acrobatics. Its smooth, curved hull is a dark blue, providing good natural colour camouflage for night, while its active camouflage system makes it significantly harder to see if used intelligently. Fairly hefty cylinders are held in the sides of its arms, popping out and forwards while in use.
Classification: Light
Combat Role: Stealth Harassment/Assassination/Support
Primary Weapon: Ion Burst Module: The right hand cylinder, when activated, extrudes a charred nozzle forwards, with the frontal cover opening like the petals of a flower. A faint blue light emanates from the barrel before a long, thin burst of arcing blue ionised particles lances forwards. The weapon, whilst doing damage to the extreme, may only do this to at most a few parts lined up at once and takes a large amount of time to recharge. Additionally, if not targeted at a weak point or armour seam its effectiveness is greatly diminished.
Secondary Weapon: Harassment/Support System: Fires an extremely light projectile at high velocity. Unlikely to do very much damage on its own or indeed penetrate all but the weakest of armour. However, if it is fired such that it actually penetrates, it causes sufficient electromagnetic interference to diminish responsiveness of systems close to the embedded projectile as well as relaying the position, statuses and control commands of its target back to the user.
Abilities:
---- Acrobatic: Bonuses to movement and dodging
--- Acoustic Analysis Targeting System: More likely to find weak points in armour, etc.
-- Medium Level Active Camouflage: Invisibility, subject to not being actively tracked, range, movement, etc.
Super Weapon: Ion Burst Overcharge: Ion Burst Module fires a significantly more powerful blast, but renders itself unusable in the process.

I'll probably want to be replacing it or otherwise conducting extensive repairs. It says to make the super attacks one time only, after all.

But your super attack is linked with your primary weapon, isn't that kind of bad.. Frying your primary weapon that is.

Also making an Ion lance in somewhere that is pressurized is stupid and impossible, the Ionized material will keep flowing forward (of course arching from gravity if present) but it won't disperse like it does in space.

Wuh?
Why would it disperse?
I don't need it to disperse. I just need it to eat a hole in the enemy mecha. A small hole, true, but a deep and hopefully crippling one. If you mean it won't flow forwards, then I should probably make it clear that it's based on modern electrodynamic engines, which use an electromagnetic field to propel the ions.
Also, if I'm allowed more perks, would you mind telling me? I'd like to add a support perk or something.
