At long last the Battle of Tukayyid sourcebook was released. And one of the first responses after “ooh, look at that cover” was “why isn’t the Kodiak on the random tables?” The short answer was, the tables were not intended to cover every ‘mech that could possibly be on Tukayyid, but after a number ofContinue reading “Battle of Tukayyid Expanded Force Creation”
I wrote this BattleTech campaign specifically for new players getting A Game of Armored Combat and Beginner Box sets. At the time, there was already an announcement of an upcoming Succesion Wars campaign that I thought would do the same, so I impatiently released it myself as a fanwork. Perhaps if I’d had more paitence,Continue reading “Nashira Campaign”
More random stuff that needed a home. The Combat Manuals (Lite) has been a series I’ve “hosted” just as a forum post for a long time. Making a home for them here.
Third TR 3145 Designing a … post, and the first design I actually did and the first that got published is the Narukami. Another open-ended “requirement”. A Kuritan assault tank.

But jymset came to me and said he had a new addition that needed stats ASAP. A Stalker II, and it needed to be “boss as ***K”. No ideaContinue reading “Designing a Stalker”
Technical Readout 3145 has had some interesting changes from previous TRs. One of those was the handing off of the collecting/determining stats/construction to a team specficially for that purpose. They put a lot of work into collecting all the various Mechwarrior Dark Age references (and the variants), figuring out how they fit in to “classic”Continue reading “Designing a Sarath”
My BattleTech group has recently started a BattleTech Introductory League. 220 tons, exactly 4 battlemechs and nothing else, only Introductory rules level, all Veteran mechwarriors. I’m not competing as I’m “hosting”, but will play if there’s an odd player out that needs someone to play against. I did up some default lance lists for thoseContinue reading “Introductory League”
