The WarMek roleplaying game Armageddon: from Mongoose Publishing is glossy, rather slick and exceptionally crunchy. Armageddon: is allowed to be crunchy, it should be crunchy; it is a game which returns the war to roleplaying. If the original Chainmail was spawned by players roleplaying their favourite generals on the eve of battle and then again afterwards to divide up the spoils, in some ways, Armageddon: is the point where the evolutionary cycle begins anew.
With just a quick glance Earth: looks similar. The paged supplement is in colour. The illustrations are of similar quality and style. I think the nearly-but-not-quite-anime style of some of the character portraits is a great way to broaden the appeal of the game.
This style, what ever you want to call it, is used again in Earth: and it continues to work. Armageddon: is glossy and green, Earth: is matt and metal grey but the appearance suits the mood. The supplement surpasses the main rulebook on cartography. Armageddon: is pretty much map free but the maps in Earth: are top notch. All the maps are presented on a grid.
Borders are marked and important cities are sometimes marked to. The IWN news casts are present in Earth: These are flashes of information from the in game world of Armageddon: They represent what the independent news can get away with broadcasting. They add flavour and insight. In the perfect world Mongoose will make them all PDF available has free player handouts.
Europe is at war with America. The United Kingdom is in civil war, split between its connections to both powers and its own interests. Russia supports the US but refuses to fight. Israel is a pariah state. China is in turmoil. The Asian cooperate conglomerate, the Tiger Combine, sells WarMeks to anyone who can afford them and there are rumblings from Africa. The front cover summaries this nicely. The Eiffel Tower torn asunder in a fiery explosion.
This RPG has been published during a time when armies and politicians are on the move. Earth: is a hard book to read if you find yourself getting hot under the collar in every political debate you bump into on the Internet. So to speak. This alternative game started to annoy me years ago when every additional product for it was filled with bigger mechs, better guns, more damaging missiles and powerful enemies.
Earth: does not make this mistake. Earth: stays on topic. The prestige classes are for WarMek officers from specific Academies around the world.
You can play a character from the Sandhurst Academy. All this troublesome history gets to be a bit much a times. How much of one is there? Earth: makes me wonder whether there will be an Earth: Earth: is there if Armageddon players want it. If you were left with a desperate need to find out more about the year then Earth: is a must buy.
