Lange Zeit waren die Aprilscherze von Catalyst ein Highlight dieses humorischen Datums. Leider gab es lange Zeit keine entsprechenden Produkte mehr.
Das ändert sich dieses Jahr aber: Gleich zwei April Fools Produkte schickt Catalyst ins Rennen.
Die PDFs gibt es bei Drivethru kostenlos im „Pay What You Want“ Modell. Das heißt, ihr könnt in das Feld 0,00 € eintragen oder auch 100,00 €. Das ist euch überlassen. Entscheidet, was die PDFs euch wert sind und tragt das ein.
After Gray Monday, the Republic has descended into a new Dark Age, ploughshares are being turned back into swords, and the jackals are feeding on the confusion. The desperate need for weapons of new militaries arising everywhere sees mundane machines strapped with outlandish weapons, flamboyant arena ’Mechs returning to the battlefield, and renowned manufacturers engaging in uncharacteristic experimental gambles. It is a seller’s market; anything goes and no price is too high. Caveat emptor—the dust will settle quicker on your new acquisition’s battlefield debut than on the transaction that got you there. You won’t have time for buyer’s remorse.
Experimental Technical Readout: Caveat Emptor samples production and prototype machines that have earnt infamy after Gray Monday as inefficient monstrosities sold to the highest bidder. Each unit featured in this book incorporates some of the new technologies that debuted in Tactical Operations (or quirks found in the BattleMech Manual)—now employed on battlefields of brush wars on former Republic worlds. Statistics and Record Sheets are included for 13 new advanced and experimental BattleMechs, ready for play in advanced BattleTech games.
Escape From Castle Wulfensteiner
“Someone’s Alive Down There!”
The Inner Sphere may be going to hell in a handbasket, but you are your team managed to land a gig far from the swirling chaos. Protecting a DropShip-load of Deep Periphery explorers picking over remnants of the long-lost Rim Worlds Republic may not be glamorous or exciting, but it pays well enough.
Then came the strange transmission from the latest destination—a dry, dusty, poisonous world in the middle of nowhere:
“Hail, unidentified vessel! You have entered Star League Imperial airspace without a recognized flight plan! Please declare yourselves and your intentions at once!”
BattleTech Adventures: Escape from Castle Wulfensteiner takes players to the forgotten worlds of the Deep Periphery, in search of mysteries lost to time and treachery. After three years of exploring, the search has finally come to SLSC A8V.24881. Escape from Castle Wulfensteiner includes a guide to this desolate world, personal biographies on several key players, and adventure Tracks designed for use with A Time of War: The BattleTech Role-Playing Game, A Time of War Companion, and MechWarrior: Destiny, as well as special rules and Record Sheets for key non-player characters and facilities unique to this story.
