Coming Soon: MECHNOIR!

If you don't already, be sure to watch my blog at, like Technoir on Facebook, follow me on Twitter, and add me to your circles on Google+, because I'll be talking about Mechnoir in those places over the coming weeks.

Here's the details: Mechnoir is an alternative player's guide for Technoir. It will feature six rigs (giant mechanized construction vehicles turned war-machines) and two dropships (flying transports that deploy the rigs) along with some additional rules to use these vehicles in confrontations and a whole new set of Training Programs to make your riggers and pilots. In addition, Mechnoir will also be bundled with three new Transmissions that detail colonies being established on Mars: the harsh landscape where these rigs will roam.

The Mechnoir bundle will be made available to everyone who backed this Kickstarter project. So follow its development as it's in its final playtesting stage, and look for it to drop here soon.


I want to thank everyone for their patience as shipping out the physical rewards took much more time than I expected. All copies of books, booklets, dice, t-shirts, and hoodies have been shipped out now. If you haven't received your rewards yet, please send me a message here so I can reconcile that ASAP. Thanks again for being such wonderful supporters of Technoir!

      Any news on Mechnoir? or Hexnoir?

    2. Creator Zelbinian on June 8, 2012

      An update would be very much appreciated.

      It would be really great if we could get another update soon. How are MechNoir, MORE Noir and Hex Noir coming along?

      So much yes. BTW: I am quite proud of my SNEAK shirt. It is by far the nerdiest article of clothing I own. "Yeah, this is a shirt I got as a kickstarter bonus for an indie RPG about science-fiction noir. What's that? Why, yes, I actually HAVE touched a girl, why do you ask?"

      I joke, of course. My wife really likes Technoir.

      With the Mechnoir bundle, that will be distributed as a PDF?

      So cool. Looking forward to this.
