Mobile Suit Gundam UC100 is a Science Fiction RPG set within the Universal Century timeline of Gundam. UC100 focuses more on the Military & Space Opera aspects of Gundam, with a vision of a grittier feeling setting full of drama, intrigue, and war. This is inspired by works within the Gundam series itself which take more serious tones, and also other science fiction military settings such as Battlestar Galactica.
The year is Universal Century 0099.
It has been over a century since humanity began colonizing the solar system, with the dream of expanding humanities influence into the stars. In this time, the Earth Federation has ruled over Earth, and the Colonies. It has been a century besieged by constant warfare, and yet despite this, the Earth Federation, has held strong despite internal strife and corruption.
With the development of the Mobile Suit, warfare changed forever. It was the rebel colonists following the ideals of a man named Zeon who were at the forefront of this technology, using it to enact vengeance against the Federation in their fight for freedom. If not for the Earth Federations development of their own Mobile Suit technology, Codename: GUNDAM, the war might have been lost.
The tide was turned and the original Zeonic rebels were defeated at the end of the year 0079 after the loss of over five billion human lives, and irreparable damage to the Earth itself. Two decades of intermittent warfare later, on the dawn of a new century, the Republic of Zeon prepares to relinquish its autonomy and once more become part of the Earth Federation.
This new peace is threatened by those who cling to old hatreds, and lost ideals as war once more threatens to engulf humanity.
Players take on the roles of pilots, and crew of the warship Nahel Argama, Commandos from ECOAS, or even Civilians who have been thrust into the conflict for some reason.
Regular Scheduled Events, Scene Logging, Web Integration including Character Generation, Automated Combat, Mechs, and so much more because ARES is really cool.
Why should you play?
It will be fun! It’s something a little different and out of the ordinary, and personally I think I can do a pretty good job as an admin/storyteller if anyone wants to give it a chance. (Promise)

(UC is my favorite Gundam continuity—no surprise, since 0083 Stardust Memories is probably my favorite Gundam series—and I find myself very interested indeed.)

@Sparks Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions. We're just opening for Alpha Testing right now, and I've got a ton of stuff up on the wiki and more to come. Happy to have you anytime. :)
P.S. Words cannot express how much I love everything UC Gundam, even as someone who is not really an anime fan. :)

Damn it I was just saying I wanted more single theme anime games.
@Ghost Your wish was my command apparently!
My curiosity has been piqued. I will look at this when I get off work.
@Testament Look forward to seeing you stop by. :)

Will there also be Gunpla?
@Jennkryst As cute and amazing as the Build Fighters series is, no. :(
Bearguy's originating Mobile Suit, the Acguy exists though!

Going to have to check this out! :D
@Kosh Please do! We've got a handful of really great players already, and I'm sure we could use a few more! :)

@Kitty-Kat Not very familiar with the theme but sounds cool! I'll log in sooooon!
@Kosh If you need any help just let me know and I'll be glad to give you a rundown on the theme and stuff.
Just thought I'd give a quick update!
Our first week of Alpha Testing (Which is coming to a close) has seen 12 players approved, and 24 scenes.
So far it's been a great crowd of people that I've enjoyed playing with, and would (biasedly) suggest anyone who might be on the fence due to lack of knowledge of the theme, or anything like that to give it a shot.
We have quite a few people who don't know Gundam at all, and from what I've heard they've been having fun. :)

I'm Brennen Vernichtung and UC100 is my favorite mush on ares.
More seriously though, fun game, it's enjoyable
Seems like it could be fun, though I'm not familiar with the setting.
@Kaedric Come give things a shot if you're willing, we'll all get you up to speed. :)
Just tossing it out there, we are looking for a coder if anyone is bored, and likes to code.
I joined, I'm playing and I'm loving it. Great staff, great players and active.

Wanted to chime in here, and say that I too have been a whale of a time.
At the moment, I'm looking for folks to join in some gung-ho military non-suit mission-play. You don't have to be part of the ECOAS commando team to join in; there are plenty of anime tropes of intrepid civilians getting wrapped up in military affairs. Pluck and pith will take you everywhere.
The game runs on FS3, and takes advantage of its combat engine. It is also integrated well into Ares.
Play there for a while and you'll have your own, customized mobile suit to use in play. There's rules for this up on the Wiki.
The Gundam background is pretty easy to pick up on, and staff is small and focused.
