Mecha vs. Kaiju Campaign Setting (True20)
Publisher: Big Finger Games

The game is set up much like other True20 books. You have your three archetypes/characters (Adept, Expert, Warrior) and a host of new feats and powers to choose from. Some are campaign-specific but almost all could be used anywhere else. In fact there is enough here that the main feature of MvK is readily apparent; you don't have to do games about fighting giant monsters all the time. Now of course the main plot and thrust of this game is fighting giant monsters, but I can easily see some adventures of exploring monster islands, contests between cocky pilots, mad scientists, children with newly awakened psychic powers.

When I first read this game my thoughts went first to Godzilla, but you can do Akira here as well and any number of other "Neo Tokyo" genres. Plus it is compatible with a host of True20 books I already have, so adding cyberpunk, horror or even comedy is easy.

If you don't like the campaign background you can leave it, but I think you would be missing out on something really fun if you do.

This might in fact be my favorite True20 setting.

Mecha vs. Kaiju Campaign Setting (True20)

Whether or not you use the Mecha vs. Kaiju setting, the mechanics and suggestions for the use of both Mecha and Kaiju in True20 are pricelessly good, and the point system makes it deliciously easy for a GM to balance PCs as they gain levels, and balance opponents' Mecha and Kaiju against them. The Mecha system provides such a wealth of options, with valuable examples that drive a robust, open-ended design system, that I am extremely confident that there is enough Mecha material in here for me to run several interesting Mecha-based campaigns. Awesome for anyone who likes True20 or Mecha at all.
