Using the d20 System to its fullest, this is the most detailed game of its type to date, and no expense has been spared in ensuring that it is also one of the best looking games available. The rulebook kicks off with a 'Welcome to Armageddon ' mini-chapter that is fast becoming a common feature in our rulebooks - basically, it tells you everything you need to know about the setting in three pages.

Political events of the 21st Century have been spinning out of control and by , the world faces the Armageddon War, a devastating conflict between the United States of America and the European Federation.

In such a war, there can be no such thing as neutrality and every nation has been dragged into the conflict as the two superpowers fight for complete domination of the globe and beyond. Characters in Armageddon details everything players will need to know in order to create their own characters for campaigns in this war.

The main rulebook assumes players will be officers piloting the giant WarMeks and classes available include Field Officers, Assault Officers, Comms Officers, Scout Officers and WarMek Weapons Officers, all with their own unique traits and talents - any new mercenary company is well advised to include a variety of specialised personnel to adapt to rapidly changing conditions on the battlefield. Other character classes, used to flesh out other personalities the players may encounter include the Civilian, Officer and Soldier.

However, options for characters will not stop here and there is far more going on in the Armageddon War than fighting within the cockpit of a giant WarMek. Future supplements for Armageddon will take campaigns in new directions, permitting players to take the role of mercenary armoured companies, espionage agents or special forces risking all in desperate combat without the benefit of a ton WarMek. Skills and Feats provides everything else a player needs to round off his character in Armageddon , with a collection of new skills necessary for the game, as well as many new feats designed for mek warfare.

There are far too many to detail here, but to give you a smattering. In Armageddon , players get to mess around with far more than just a character - they each have a WarMek, of course, but they also have to work together as a mercenary, corporate or military company. This is an additional level of character creation that all players will have to work together on. The Mercenary Companies chapter gives everything players need to know about this process.

At its core, designing a mercenary company is a matter of balancing budgets, making sure that all players have the WarMeks they want, as well as retaining enough funds for repairs and upgrades later.

However, five or six WarMeks walking across the battlefield unprotected and unsupported are never going to last long in , and a mercenary company can be far more than the sum of its parts. Satellite and Air Assets are going to be of great interest , and the ability to buy armour, artillery and even private armies will take combined arms tactics to new levels in - all this is possible for mercenary companies. In addition, players will also have to consider the potential benefits of having the very latest computers and software in their WarMeks, as well as purchasing repair facilities and intelligence assets.

In Armageddon , you are not just playing a WarMek pilot - you have to run a business as well! Full rules are given for recruiting or headhunting staff, as well as useful guidelines to help players through negotiating mercenary contracts. Personal Equipment provides players and Games Masters with a wide variety of items for their characters, from simple melee weapons, to the highest technology computerised aids designed to give a vital edge on the modern battlefield.

As the setting behind Armageddon is firmly rooted in the real world, many of these will have a distinctly familiar ring to it. A wide range of medical kits, combat suits and multispectrum ghillie suits can also be found in this chapter, making decking any character out for combat a quick but fun!

Personal Combat contains all the rules necessary to fight in Armageddon , and a variation of the Defence Value rules first used in the Judge Dredd RPG is used here to reflect the capabilities of armour and weaponry of the modern age.

Dangers other than combat are also included, including the most complete list of poisons and diseases that I have yet seen in a d20 game! Want to inflict CS or nerve gas on your players? No problem! If they are still standing after that, a dose of Anthrax or Weaponised Ebola may have them running for their WarMeks in very short order. A sizeable portion of this rulebook is taken up by, predictably, the WarMek and Vehicle Combat chapter.

After all, this is a game of mechs! It is here that the d20 System has been tweaked the most, for while the basic concepts of combat remain the same Initiative, 6 second rounds, etc. Every WarMek is divided into several locations, each of which has its own set of Armour and Structure Points. In addition, WarMeks are incredibly power hungry and players must keep a constant eye on the power output of their machines, lest they be 'caught short' just when they need to fire their main weaponry.

We really have tried squeezing every aspect of warfare Meks should be capable of into this rulebook, meaning that players will likely have far more to do than just hunt down their latest mercenary contract.

The next chapter, Electronic Warfare, Communications and Scanning, is one of my favourites, as it demonstrates just how much detail you can include in your games, if you so wish - it also lends itself to players creating ambushes by minimising their own signatures while scanning for the enemy, leading to some very tense situations. Visual scanning looking out of the cockpit is covered first, enabling Games Masters to set up realistic encounter distances, while applying the effects of light, camouflage and weather.

However, no self-respecting WarMek pilot operates on sight alone. The entire electromagnetic spectrum is available to the skilled WarMek pilot, and the best learn how to track enemies through the use electromagnetic, infrared, radar, magnetic and seismic signatures while minimising their own. Also detailed are various forms of electronic attack, codebreaking, jamming and deception through a variety of different means - Comms Officers can be fairly said to be the new 'wizards' of Armageddon and their highly specialised machines, while often undergunned, can swing entire battles by their mere presence.

Who said the assault guys get all the glory!!! I have to confess, at the GAMA trade show last week, whenever someone asked about Armageddon , I always turned straight to the WarMeks of the World chapter as it is pure eye candy!

Over thirty mek designs are provided, all in glorious CGI and complete with rules, histories, design flaws and special traits. When we began designing these meks, we decided very early on to base them on the corporations that build them - so, the meks from one manufacturer will all have certain common features.

What this means in game terms is that one 85 ton mek is going to be very different from another of the same size, even if it has similar armour and weapons capabilities - think of it as comparing cars of the same spec between Toyota and Ford!

Of course, you are not going to be satisfied with thirty-odd Meks, are you? Not by a long shot! The next chapter, Mek Construction, provides full rules to allow the use of custom WarMeks in the game, allowing players to specify their fighting machines down to the last nut and bolt.

Power plants, for example, range from gas turbines, through fuel cells, right up to the latest Tokamak designs. WarMek Technology does for Meks what Personal Equipment did for characters, and there are a lot of cool 'toys; to play with here! And how is this for something seriously cool - being able to launch a shoulder-mounted UAV to scout the terrain ahead, launch pre-emptive attacks or even correct your own artillery fire? Of course, your enemies get these choices too.

Full rules are also included for the use of UAVs and robotic followers designed to support armies in the field.

The World of is a chapter packed with information describing the nations and politics of the modern age, and how the Armageddon War inevitably came into being. From the aggressive rise of the European Federation to the trade wars and skirmishes that soon followed as it began to compete directly with the US, the course of the war has been plotted, leaving players right in the middle of the conflict.

Students of real-world politics will find much to get their teeth into here, for everything has been based on speculation and extrapolation of actual events - take it as a warning if you wish!

Also covered are the other areas of the world and how they have been forced into polarisation with the EF or USA. This leaves many interesting areas for players to be based or forced to wage war in, and I have a feeling that Kazakhstan also featured in the first campaign pack to be released for Armageddon will be a popular choice for Games Masters who like to inject a heavy dose of political intrigue into their games.

Following this, the Corporations chapter takes a good look at the real movers and shakers of , those powers who can hold entire governments to ransom. Many corporations hold sway over various regions of the world, from those producing computer hardware, weapons and WarMeks to food producers, medical services and housing. Any successful mercenary company has to understand the complex relationships between rival corporations if it hopes to profit and survive during the Armageddon War.

Finally, a complete chapter is dedicated to helping Games Masters run entire Campaigns in Armageddon - information is provided as to how mercenary companies usually operate, what tactics are used and how scenarios should be structured to realistically portray the world of Advice is also presented on how to handle weapons of mass destruction in games and how to avoid party wipe-outs!

Armageddon Total War wraps up with a detailed glossary, a full index and a stunning set of character and record sheets, all ready for play. This is by far the most ambitious project Mongoose Publishing has produced to date and many hundreds of man-hours have gone into the production of this game.

The first supplement, War Machines of , is following hot on the heels of the main rulebook and provides over 50 new WarMek designs and special rules, including the appearance of four-legged meks.

Armoured Companies does for tanks what the main rulebook has done for meks, while the Soldier's Companion allows players to take the part of special forces or espionage agents in the Armageddon War.

On top of all this, full campaign packs will soon be available, as well as an all new range of novels designed to flesh out the world of yet further and introduce you to some of the heroes and personages of power present in the war. Mystic Eye Games have also committed themselves to supporting Armageddon Total War with their own range of supplements and scenarios, making this one of the best supported d20 System RPGs available.

Looking over just the weapons chart I see a key problem.

Earth: 2089

The WarMek roleplaying game Armageddon: from Mongoose Publishing is glossy, rather slick and exceptionally crunchy. Armageddon: is allowed to be crunchy, it should be crunchy; it is a game which returns the war to roleplaying. If the original Chainmail was spawned by players roleplaying their favourite generals on the eve of battle and then again afterwards to divide up the spoils, in some ways, Armageddon: is the point where the evolutionary cycle begins anew. With just a quick glance Earth: looks similar.
