Scenario Ideas

A while ago I mentioned running A2089 for a few people in my regular group. Though due to various things that didn't come to pass, but after one of the people who I'd mentioned it to brought it up the other day, and as w're running out of things to play at the moment, I've been mulling over scenario...

I think it was probably more a case of the person who created the group closing it. Though it is possible that it got Yahooed. Apparently it all happened sometime between now and early January, as that's the date on the last email I got from the group. Guess I just wasn't paying much attention last ...

To the RPG I want to say that your conclusions were right - this game suffered from complexity (just the RPG hardcoregamer are playing this game, because of its tons of rules and the need of two rulebooks!!! A.2089 and the D&D rulebook) By that logic, almost every other D20 based game out there sho...

Uhm, Götterfunke, if you actually take a look at the link in the original post, you might notice that the date says pre-orders for february and march of 2003. So it's more than a little out of date. After reading the original post, I wenyt and had another look at the MEG site, still nothing regardin...

Re: something I saw...

MYG 8000 Armageddon 2089: Armor Upgrades $39.98 now, granted the letters aren't correct, and it might be out of date, but stilll. It is intriguing. Anybody know anything? This was supposed to be Mystic Eye Games' first book produced for A2089 under the partnership, or some such, with Mongoose. Ther...

Well, there are both pros and cons when it comes to the whole metal/plastic debate about figures. Though from what ittle I've been able to pick up as a member of the general public, the moulds for plastic figures tend to cost a lot more than the moulds for a metal figure would do. Which is why most ...

Been holding off on posting to this thread, given that I don't have all of the supplements yet. I still have to get hold of the tank book and the infantry book. However, out of those that I do have, which is all the others, the decision isn't that easy anymore. Before, I'd have said Warmachines, sim...

Hi, Matthew! So for a miniatures game I expect many new, interesting miniatures and not the old ones..... every expansion should introduce exciting new ones. This would be a great motivation to buy and buy and buy etc. There in lies one of the major issues people have with the random packs of figur...

I'd have thought that most meks would count as sealed vehicles, for this purpose, because they're fully enclosed. Take cars for example, with the windows up and all the doors closed, there's a fairly noticable difference in volume levels of sounds coming form the outside. But they generally don't in...

Well a C130 can carry 19 metric tonnes of equipment, rgouhly half the Bombard. It can also carry, in place of pure cargo, 92 combat ready troops or 64 fully equipped paratroopers. So the easiest thing to would be double those figures. As for carrying tanks or meks, you're not going to get that many ...

yeah, have you seen the part that says, "requires the use of D&D 3rd edition from wizards of the coast" THat's where your experience/level chart is.

Well, its been quite some time since we heard anything from Mongoose on this, and I've given up checking the MEG website for any possible details. So, either way, it would be nice to hear something official on this.

In a short term the warmek technology spread over the whole world (2075-2089).

I quite agree with that, as only going into detail on a specific area of the setting might seem like a good idea, but it means you have less aspects to interest people who might not find the area you're going into great detail about as interesting as others. As for space, that's covered in the Air s...

I`m a little bit sad that there should be no place for new warmeks in the future. (I don`t understand that a hardcore - fan opposes new supplements, because I can`t get enough.... :wink: ) I don't recall anyone saying there shouldn't be any new meks, certainly not myself.

A TRO is not just eye candy - in my opinion there should be real technology progress - I think that an arm race will be a natural answer to a war turned hot....look at WW II or the cold war between Russia and USA. It`s obvious that new countries will develop a warmek industry in order to protect th...

Re: Indirect fire rules

Hi. Hi I'm a little confused by the indirect fire rules and critical hits. The rules say the if you 'hit' your shot lands d4 metres away - and if you critical hit you are dead on. What advantage does that actually give you if you are firing a howitzer with an area affect anyway? I couldn't give you ...
