Arching the Androids Part 1

The Ascendant Androids have always kicked ass and taken names … along with spleens, spines, and other vital organs. But now these fiends face the ultimate adversary …. the one and only Arch Nemesis! Wait, who!? Don’t tell me you didn’t read the adventures of Darkman’s Robot Warriors a few weeks ago and learn all about the fun filled, innocent adventures taken place right at the beginning of the Team Scene!

Wait … the innocent and dimwitted Arch Nemesis is going to stumble across the ultra violent Ascendant Androids? Oh no!

Cossackachnical Maniarades!

Well, it’s a late update. So that can only mean one thing: The Comrades are up to bat!

But Cossackachna-wha?? With half the Comrades swept up in a mix-and-match team, you didn’t think the remaining Comrades were just going to sit on the sidelines, did you? Not while there’s suzies and old conspiracies bounding about!

While half the Comrades under Ballade’s sterling leadership, the remaining Comrades are hard at work tackling the jobs they handle best. And it’s up to their on and off buddies, The Mechanical Maniacs (at least half of them) and Punk to pick up the slack! The out-of-control suzies are the least of their problems. The mismatched team finds themselves delving into an old mystery that may be best left unsolved. But their greatest enemies could very well turn out to be themselves thanks to a lousy sense of team dynamic, and old bad habits. What kind of mischief will our boys get into? Only one way to know!

Retro Rewind: Old stories return! And The Mechs Meet 2018!

The past is present as old stories return! First up is SanityisOverRated’s Darkman’s Robot Warriors series! This was quite the hit right at the beginning of the Team Scene, but hasn’t been seen online in years. Back in the day the Mechs were briefly hosts for these stories while Stoneman switched servers.

These are posted without permission, which gave me pause. But I don’t think he’d be TOO mad about my desire to unearth his old work. So if I’ve misjudged apologies in advance.

If you scroll just a bit down you’ll notice a new banner – one leading to the Sinister Six! That’s right, the Sinister Six is now a part of the Mechanical Maniacs, retaining it’s own layout and all it’s content. It’s stories along with those of the X-Force and Darkman’s Robot Warriors can all be found on the Fiction page. It’s looking … really crowded, actually.

You see, a few weeks ago the Sinister6.com domain has expired and it took me over two weeks to even notice it was gone. After talking about it with Rich and Ben we felt we no longer really needed that domain, especially since the Mechs and the Sinister Six have shared the same site since the Planet Megaman days. So instead of buying it up again the decision was made to let it go and merge the Sinister Six with the Mechs. I’ve also taken the time to reorganize and rename a few folders to, hopefully, make a bit more sense internally.

As for as epilogues go you may think it nearly impossible to make sense of it all, given the sheer amount of content. Well, I’ve got you covered. I’ve created and greatly revised the Epilogue Timeline which contains the adventures of the Mechanical Maniacs, Sinister Six, X-Force, Cossack’s Comrades, AND Wily’s Warriors in a comprehensive, chronological list detailing points of convergence and filters! This list has been and will continue to be updated.

And, last but not least, the real life adventures of the mechanical Maniacs have been posted detailing this year’s photos and log! This has been ready for quite some time, actually, but just hasn’t been posted yet. So have fun reading up on our latest trip to Montreal!

We haven’t had n update this substantial in quite some time, so I hope you enjoy it.

By Any Other Name

Capcom shocks the world by announcing that Torchman is now an official Robot Master! Wait, it’s not the Torchman we know and love? Oh no. This can only spell trouble!

This ep was made by Spark, Snake and I during the Mechs Meet just a few weeks ago. We’re going a little out of order here, but we wanted to get this up ASAP, while everyone’s still hyped about Megaman 11. Hope you all enjoy it!

How the Mighty Have Fallen Part 2

Out Mighty adventure continues! Can the Mechanical Maniacs save their new lives as the all-new Mighty Numbers!? And, more importantly … will they even want to!? Geoff’s long-awaited story / commentary reaches it’s conclusion!

How the Mighty Have Fallen Part 1

No, this isn’t an April Fool’s day joke – it really is an epilogue about Mighty Number 9 – a game’s everyone’s already said their peace about! Geoff pens a tale of madness, hubris, and ambition all rolled into two tidy parts.

Who are the Mighty Numbers and what have they to do with the Mechanical Maniacs? Everyone’s jumping aboard the bandwagon before even really knowing what they’re getting into. What can possibly go wrong?

Encore Part 2

It’s the first new epilogue of a brand new year! And what better way to start things off than to dwell on the distant past? Encore Part 2 is now up! And this one actually contains the long-lost intro to the new Sinister Six (which I re-purposed to fit their current continuity).

But that’s not all! I finally noticed that the old Sinister Six Epilogue Contest was never sprited. Yeah, the winner of that thing has been lost to time along with every single other submission. But now the runner ups can be read as proper epilogues. And, yes. I do, occasionally, preform site maintenance on the old site.

Encore Part 1

A few years ago, when I was making the long lost origin of the S6 I had totally forgotten this epilogue even existed!

Back in the day Gary really struggled with how to introduce the "new" Sinister Six and went through several ideas. I remember he asked for my help on it once, but I didn’t like some of the ideas presented and couldn’t really think of a good way to get them to work. Years passed by and I made a "filler" story for him as a joke and shortly afterwards he died. And the story went completely forgotten.

And then I rediscovered it right after filling in the gap myself. Welp, it can still be salvaged! Presenting Encore Part 1! This story deals with some of Gary’s old ideas for an S6 revival that just didn’t see the light of day.

Continuity-wise the story takes place shortly after Ice VS Red and at the end of Series 4.

Polluting Powers Combine

This was a long time coming. I’ve had the idea for a Captain Pollution story for a while now, but didn’t have enough actual "story" to make it happen for ages. But if a standard story doesn’t work, how about a non-standard one? Read on to see what happens when the Mechs cross paths with the greatest environmental villain of all – Captain Pollution!
