Mighty Monsters - Giant Monster Combat Rules

Mighty Monsters - Giant Monster Combat Rules


MIGHTY MONSTERS is a set of fast-playing miniatures combat rules in the tradition of Japanese "Kaiju" movies.


MIGHTY MONSTERS includes rules for "man in a rubber suit" monsters, blobs, giant heroes and alien invasion forces. The roster section has enough pre-designed monsters to start playing immediately.

Play a monster vs monster duel or "monster team" battles. In the average "team" battle a player controls 3 or 4 monsters.
Play in any scale (we play using 28 to 60mm "gashapon" toys but you can play with whatever figures you have available).

The rules let you create a monster from the ground up with a point system, choosing Quality and Combat scores for every part of the monster's body. To move you activate the monster's "legs" (or pseudopods, wings, whatever), to grapple an opponent you activate its arms, and so on. Ranged attacks are linked to the body part that "shoots" them. For example, if you want to use your giant lizard's Radioactive Breath, you activate its Head.

If you play the Army you get a number of stands that you can move around the battlefield with coherency rules. You'll need 15 to 25 stands to have enough firepower to take on a monster.

Monsters do not have "hit points" but are much more durable than characters in our other rulesets. Basically, as a monster gets wounded and weaker, the player uses colored dice (yellow for light wounds and red for more serious wounds) for activation rolls. For example, a fresh monster will use up to three "white" dice, and a slightly hurt or tired monster will maybe use one yellow and two white dice. When the colored dice fail on an activation roll, the monster suffers some kind of effects from his wounds.

Giant robots are designed like other monsters. They are unaffected by psychological effects like going berserk or being intimidated, and might explode when severely damaged.

Mighty Monsters is a standalone book, based on the popular Song of Blades engine. No other purchase necessary.

Why no print option? It'd be great to get this in a saddle-stitch print format.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
