Aldeus - The God War: an H&H blog series

I've got hyper-focused of late on binging the Super Robot Wars series, as well as Space Battleship Yamato, and thus inspired, I have been kicking around the possibility of a mecha themed expansion/setting/game thing for the H&H system. 

Shortage in time and energy has been making it quite difficult of late to commit to anything long-form like a new book, so instead I thought I might try my hand at breaking it up and developing it piecemeal over a series of blog posts, similar to what I have done in the past with the FTL material, or my fiction project A Chip's Edge.

Thus allow me to kick off this blog series by announcing Aldeus - The God War, a setting about alien gods waging war on humanity with powerful super robots, and the trans real robot pilots who fight them.

I've got some interesting ideas for the basic setting backdrop and themes, as well as some kinda SRW-inspired rules for customizable mechs without quite so much of the usual mechanical crunch that goes with that. The next post will kick off with the setting introduction most likely, just like my books do, but after that it may meander a bit as I work through ideas for different parts of the thing.

If there's enough interest, eventually this might actually get assembled into an actual book, and maybe I will even look into an art budget or god forbid even Kickstarter, but I am not committing to anything yet because I am still kind of in chaos mode after the move.

Hopefully my H&H fans are still out there, and I also have been desperate to do something with some queer flavor too, maybe bring in a few of my fellow trans into the fold.

I hope y'all enjoy!
