|Full Metal Panic! TRPG|
A Full Metal Panic! themed role playing game was released in Japan last week and frankly i believe i am the most unqualified person to review it. So here is my review!
|Full Metal Panic! TRPG Illustrations|
The Full Metal Panic! TRPG is, like some of you might have guessed (i didn't), a book with basic rules and guidelines for a roll playing game between people, set in the world of FMP. Spread over the 272 pages are a bunch of game details, scenarios, character informations, charts and illustrations.
|Full Metal Panic! TRPG Playable Characters|
There are eight character classes:
1. Secret Student (Sousuke Sagara looking guy)
2. Commando Girl (Kaname Chidori looking girl)
3. Battle Wolf (Belfangan Clouseau type)
4. Commander Attacker (Melissa Mao type i guess...)
5. Girl from Russia (who looks like Tessa in a very revealing plugsuit)
6. Fire Bomber (a guy looking like Tatsuya Ichinose from FP!A)
7. Warlord (Leonard Testarossa type i guess...)
8. Whispered (Shikidouji is taking a lot of inspiration from her work on FP!A...)
I'm not an expert but some of these seem very random for a FMP themed RPG. Not sure about you though.
|Full Metal Panic! TRPG Wrapper|
If you remove the wrapper from the book you'll find on it what appears to be a playboard. This might be used in the game or not. If you have played different RPGs before (not the video game ones), a lot of what i'm writing should sound familiar to you. I asked some friends i consider experts and they told me how this sounds just like most of the RPGs out there. I seriously have to catch up on this thing...
|Full Metal Panic! TRPG Sections|
The Full Metal Panic! TRPG book has 5 sections and an appendix. It's mostly filled with written text and charts. Some illustrations here and there, most of them taken directly from the light novels. From what i can tell there is no stuff based on Full Metal Panic! Another.
I couldn't play the FMP RPG, let alone with friends, so i have no idea if it's fun. I'm not a RPG person but i would love to give this a try. Maybe one of these days somebody is going to (fan-)translate the game? Until then i will probably put this book on my shelf.
|Full Metal Panic! TRPG Back|
Along with the TRPG Kadokawa also released a scenario book called Full Metal Panic! Undercover volume 1 (there is more to come?!?) which i unfortunately was not able to buy at the time when placing this order. You can find a small illustration of it at the bottom left on the back of the wrapper. I will order Undercover 1 along with Full Metal Panic! Another volume 9 when the latter gets released this November 20 and update, in case i was missing something.
So long and thanks for sticking around!
