Giant sentient robotic tanks? nuclear weaponry?

I guess SJ's Ogre game wasn't particularly original at all then...

Only in the sense that they were glomming onto interesting SF ideas before almost anyone else in the industry.
Aside from that, I always thought Laumer's Bolo's could kick some Ogre ass ANY day.

The Ogre games are most likely an homage to the Bolos. It's not plagarism -- it's an homage!

I seem to remember a "Bolo-esque" CT adventure. I think it was called "Loggerhead" or somesuch, possibly in an old edition of the JTAS. It concerned a group of PC's sent to stop a logging machine, which was actually a robotic uber-tank being tested on a pastoral out-of-the-way planet.
I think I may have actually RUN that adventure, too...
Having a four-year-old with loose bowels will do wonders for eliminating large chunks of memory and attention-to-detail. [img]smile.gif[/img]

Are you referring to the robotic logging machine, or the four year-old with loose bowels?
