Mechnoir is out and you should buy it (if you didn’t get it free as a Technoir Kickstarter backer, that is). It’s $5. What is it? It’s the super cool streamlined system of Technoir (itself an evolved version of the system in Chronica Feudalis) only now with giant stompy robots. What’s also very cool is that the book is released under the creative commons, meaning that if you want to hack it and publish said hack (with proper attribution), or if you want to share the PDF with remote friends who have no money (so you can all play online), you can do it.
That last bit is especially helpful. Our weekly games at the hub are online (via Skype), as our members are scattered to the four winds. Getting explicit permission to make our lives as a group easier is immense, and I support it wholesale (with my moneydollars and love).
