I ramble on a bit about my search for the perfect space opera RPG.

I just got finished watching the Netflix reboot of Voltron: Legendary Defender. I really enjoyed it and it got me thinking about giant mech and anime inspired RPG's and how this might work in Five by Five. It also brought me around to thinking about an RPG called, Mekton.

Mekton was created by an RPG designer by the name of Mike Pondsmith. I consider Mike a major inspiration in my own work. Mike was doing anime inspired RPG stuff long before it was the "cool" thing to do. Games like Mekton, and Cyberpunk and Teenagers from Outerspace were ages ahead of their time both thematically and mechanically. The life-path system in Mekton for creating a character's anime-style back story was brilliant!

I have often considered a Life-Path approach to character creation, but honestly I find the process a bit intimidating. Mister Pondsmith knows no such trepidation. He created a game about playing a game that could do anything with Dream Park. (Dream Park is a huge influence on my work.)

Mike was one of the first to explore steam punk (if not the first) with Castle Falkenstein. He even proved that the tried-and-true D20 system could do anything long before Wizards of the Coast introduced 3rd Edition with an amazing and tragically under appreciated Buck Rogers D20 RPG for TSR.

These days Mike is busy working in the video-game industry, but I love the man and I thought it would be nice to just tip my hat to a fantastic game designer and major influence, Mike Pondsmith.
