A message from author Ed Erdelac: “For two years or so now my writing partner Jeff Carter and I, along with veteran game designer Wayne Humfleet and creators Chris Perrin and Mark Reed have been developing a weird western sourcebook for a little game publisher called Heroic Journey Publishing’s anime-inspired giant robot combat RPG, Mecha. We’ve currently got a Kickstarter running with twenty four days to go (as of March 18, 2015) to complete the layout and obtain art to compliment the book.”
Description: “The RPG of Mecha steam engines! Smoke stacks! Shoulder mounted cannons and cavalry sabers bigger than barns! Mecha West is a complete alternate history of gunslingers, lawmen and engineers as well as tribal nations and fighters of every color and creed. This rich foundation of history allows you to play scenarios ranging from high noon shoot outs and bank robberies to battles with transforming trains, clockwork dragons and town eating robots.
Mecha West is the brain child of acclaimed authors Ed Erdelac and Jeff C. Carter. They approached us shortly after Mecha was released with this odd ball idea of combining the Weird Old West with Giant Fighting Mecha. This is such an obviously great idea we got to work on it. Mecha West is a stand alone addition to your Mecha gaming library. Using the Mecha Core rules, written by Chris Perrin, Ed, Jeff and the HJP Team of Wayne Humfleet and Chris Perrin modified and wrapped the OCF! system around the loving embrace of this wonderful setting, which currently is clocking in at over 65,000 words.”
