Heavy Gear Revitalized – Rulebook 2nd Edition

Welcome to Heavy Gear Revitalized! Until now the older Heavy Gear ebooks available on DriveThruRPG have been scanned copies of the original printed books. Dream Pod 9 is happy to announce the release of high quality electronic format ebooks for the Heavy Gear Classic Roleplaying & Tactical Game publications. Made possible by the team of Michael Butt (Project Manager) and Brad Fischer (Roaring Mouse Graphics) who converted the old Macintosh Pager Maker files into modern Adobe format. A big thank you to Michael and Brad for taking on the massive effort to Revitalize all the old Dream Pod 9 Heavy Gear products.

A Hunter races past you, its rapid fire 20mm autocannon spitting metal death. As you watch in horror, your commanding officer’s Black Mamba erupts into a ball of raging flame, composite armor and fuel ablaze in a bright fireball.

“Fall back! Fall back!” Hastily, you have taken command. Your cadre pulls back behind a rocky outcropping and regroups. Tracers streak by your temporary shelter like angry hornets you all know you can’t stay here forever.

You crouch low and burst out of the rock’s shadow, zipping, zooming and ducking on powered wheels like an oversized amored skater. A hail of shells explode on the ground around your Gear, but you sidestep every one of them. Unleashing the full power of your V engine, you head back into the fire fight, emptying your shoulder mounted 71mm rocket pod on an enemy heavy tank.

And they told you this was just a routine patrol…

Step into a whole universe, with Heavy Gear, the new generation of giant robot game. This book contains everything you need to play the roleplaying, the tactical and the miniature game. Highlights include
