So the guy who got me started playing Shadowrun always wanted to make the ED-209 but couldn't under the rules, this was using the Rigger 2 book.
Just wondering if anyone had any ideas.
But I didn't know he was a DRAGON!

Small vehicle (maybe a horseman)
Convert to walker
Add arms
Mod to you limits (dont forget the matrix stats)

Enjoy you battlemech (without the need for you to be a brain in a jar)

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too short to be a proper 'Mech.
Power corrupts.
Absolute power is kinda neat.

Regular 'Mech: *SQUISH*...."ewwww, anyone got anything to scrape this off with?"

It would be a Proto at best...or a hyped up Battle Armor. But what is your definition of "proper"; not Lyran is it?

Unfortunately Walker Mode only works on stuff of up to Body 10, so no Ares Citymaster mecha conversions for a proper battlemech. But the ED 209 wasn't very big by my recollection, so something like a small car or enclosed bike going walker mode with mechanical arms would do you good.

A bike transforming into a battlesuit ala robotech cyclones. There is some history behind FASA properties ripping off robotech in need of repeating. ;)

If any of the old devs are on-board CGL, I'd hope they got a sense of humor over that debacle. I miss sooo that look for the Marauder tho.

Let us have a moment of silence for our loss.

My group came up with "The Horsemen of the Apocalypse", which were ED-209s they could ride around in.

I took one look at them and said, "No.  No.  Hell no.  No.  Not at all.  Forget it."

"So, maybe..."

"NO!"

"OK."

Sad part is, by the rules, it was legal.

Luckily, he thought about it, and realized that one "Car Jacking" would cripple his character.
