Prospector: Elven Gargantuan Animated mech (full stats)

Post by Raptor » Sun Feb 24, 2008 2:00 pm

This is a Mech I designed to flesh out my little Cyarliel project. They have realized that the amount of materials needed to make the number of large mechs they plan on would denude the forests if entirely wood, and have developed the prospector to find and mine valuable mineral deposits. Although not its primary purpose, it is also a fairly formidable melee opponent with it's Mattock of the Titans. And here are the stats, the split prices and times are for without and with construct assistance, which the cyarliel commonly use to increase their production (although it doesn't reduce cost significantly).

Pretty cool!

I've always felt the elves do have a quite nearly ready-made line of adventures in Dragonmech. One game I was in used two parties living in an animated mech. One party was for dealing with mechs, and the other crew was around for some dungeoneering. The old elf in charge of the very, very large animated mech was supposed to find ruins in elf country, have them searched, and salvage any major treasure he could find.
