GCM RPG FAQ
Okay, this is where I respond to some of the commonly asked questions about this project of mine.
Of course if your question is not answered here or even if your still unsure on my answer, feel free to email
me at email@example.com
Cool! Is this the official Genesis Climber MOSPEADA RPG?
Not by a long shot. This is just one fan's attempt to provide conversion notes for Mospeada using various roleplaying game true to the show.
So while this is based on Mospeada source info, it is NOT officially approved by Artmic Studios.
So this is like the Macross Role Play Network except for Mospeada?
Yes and no, while it offers a conversion notes to play one of the original series that made up Robotech (Mospeada in this case) at present it isn't a online rpg game.
Are you crazy!?! I've looked over the stats and their too weak!!
or the flip side.....
Are you mad!?! I've looked over the stats and their far too strong!!
The stats presented on this page are MY idea of how strong the mecha, or how many attacks they have and so on. You can disagree, but I won't be changing the levels anytime soon.
Most of the complaints also stem from those placing these mecha against those of the original roleplaying games (Ride Armor's against SAMAS, Legioss Armo-Fighters against Pathfinders)
What happened to all the names? Where are the VF-1s?
This is a Mospeada RPG Conversion, it's not Robotech. There is no protoculture powered mecha, no REF, no more forces at Tirol and NO Regent.
I made this mecha. Would you put up on your site??
Well it depends. If it's a Mospeada mecha that I've missed it's sure to be used. If it resembles something that would of being made by Mars Base I'll think about it. If you send me your revised YF-19 stats and try to get this conversion to link onto Macross Plus or 7, you have no hope. Likewise designs that can be easily seen as based on VF-1s, Hovertanks and Destroids, won't be excepted. Also just because you send them, doesn't mean I will use it.
Sometimes I don't have the time or space to put it up.
People have recently pointed out that I have non-Mospeada mecha stats up and if I will also take their non-Mospeada mecha stats give them a home on this page. No I won't, to put together a page these days is as easy as can be and free web space available by the ton.
Where's stats/conversion notes for Mekton? Do you plan to do them?
Ah, Mekton. The Grand-daddy and archtype of western mecha gaming. Pity that it's not on sale any more :<
I could borrow existing Robotech conversions for Mekton, but that would a poor stopgap solution, and people could just convert back with to Mospeada with them without re-naming.
Where's stats/conversion notes for Fuzion? Do you plan to do them?
I have the free online version of Fuzion, but never found anybody in my local area interested in it or played a game.
When and if I get around to it I'll probably do the conversion using the Basic Mekton Plug-In written by Christian Conkle.
Where's stats/conversion notes for Gurps and Gurps:Mecha? Do you plan to do them?
Yep, the reprint of Gurps Mecha came at a good time and I have a copy, but I'm working on other things first. Be abit of a wait.
WAH! You have only have full pages up for the Robotech RPG! Where's the rest of the pages for the others!!@!@
I can only do so much so fast, and this RPG area is only a small part of my site as a whole. If I get a major amount of emails asking, I'd consider dropping everything to get it done. But so far this has not occured.
