nunnsmuuss A
oadstrikers are mini-mecha that
fill the gap between man-to-man
weapons (firearms, grenades,

etc.) and Mekton-level machines
(where giant robots are throwing
'l5Dmm shells at each other). Road-
strikers range from light powered
armor suits to transforrnable motorcy-
cles and cars. In terms of scale, the
largest Roadstriker is about the same
size and weight as the smallest Mekton.

Roadstrikers usually engage in com-
bat with other mini-mecha (or people)
rather than trying to tangle with their
bigger cousins. Because of this fact, all of
their SPs and damage ratings are listed
in Hits instead of Kills (remember that
25 Hits equals one Kill, so a Roadstriker
with 50 Hit armor has two Kills of protec-
tion against mecha-sized weapons).

Since Roadstrilcers occupy a position
midway between Mektons and people,
they use 50-meter lvlekton hexes and
meters for measurement. All ranges and
MM are measured in 50-meter Melcton

he:-res, while walking and running MAS
are measured in MPT (meters per
turn). Now you know why so many
Roadstrikers transform into wheeled vehi-
cles—they move a lot quicker that way!

Roadstrikers are built in exactly the
same manner as regular Mel<tons—they
have Spaces and cost CP, but simply use
different tables and charts for determin-
ing damage and range. All Mekton con-
struction restrictions apply for
Roadstrikers as well. The charts on the
following pages replace the standard
charts when constructing vehicles of
Roadstrilcer scale. Everything else can be
adjusted from the regular charts by the
following formulas:

MEKTON x? = ROADSTRIKER
COST 1/3 COST
KILLS S HITS
WEIGHT U10 WEIGHT

forms available toThe body
Roadstrikers are the same as those for
Mektons: Humanoid, Beast, Annor and
Fighter are all available. There are also
two other options: Auto and Cycle, which
are explained more fully on page B4.

Note: Roadstriker scale and
Melcton scale components are NOT
interchangable.

In a Roadstriker, a person takes up '
as many spaces as his BOD Stat (from
2-10, average of 6). The number of
Spaces worth of cockpit must be decid-
ed upon at the time the Roadstriker is-
designed, allowing for mecha which can
only be driven by people who are small
of frame. Cockpit Spaces may be allocat-
ed among the assorted servos in a.=
Roadstriker. If the driver of your mini-';
mecha sits entirely in the Torso, he is}
going to take up a lot of Space; altema-r
tively, he could wear the mecha like a su
