I come in peace.

Hey all.
One of my Battletech players showed me MFZ, and I was hooked pretty quickly. Also really like the rules for Intercept Orbit - looks like a very nice space system.

I love that much of the art evokes the Scope Dog, Standing Bear, and Balarant Fatty (Chub?) from Armored Trooper VOTOMS, and mentions a unit called the "Sun's Fang" (Fang of the Sun: Dougram?).

I'm looking forward to some Lego-Mecha madness, and I sure I will have plenty of questions about other units (VTOLS, Fighters, Hydrofoils, Blue-Sea Naval Vessels, etc...)

Thanks!

Looks like I just eliminated a lot of my "Free time". :D

<addendum>
Reading over the Intercept Orbit rules definitely had me thinking "Gundam" and "Macross" (not much space combat in Votoms or Dougram). Nice to see I'm not alone at Atomic Rockets as well.

There is just TOO much stuff in this forum!!!!
I'm slightly overwhelmed!
