Field Manual 3145 – Cover

Ohne große Worte:
Field Manual 3145

It is the year 3145. Only thirteen years have passed since Gray Monday—the day that most of humanity’s interstellar communications grid suddenly and mysteriously collapsed. Plunged into darkness and fearing the worst, the leaders and armies of the Inner Sphere scrambled to act, some fearing the approach of invaders, others seeking to exploit the chaos. Now, armies are on the march, war has erupted on every front, and the Republic of the Sphere—once a sign of mankind’s hope for a brighter future—has retreated behind its fortress walls to prepare for the inevitable.
Field Manual: 3145 updates the military and political state of the Inner Sphere as it stands in the year 3145. This report includes a brief history and overview of recent developments in the BattleTech universe, as well as current TO&Es for the major ’Mech forces and mercenary commands employed by the realms and Clans of the Dark Age Inner Sphere. Special era-specific rules are also included, enabling players to create characters and forces for use in campaigns set in and after this critical point in BattleTech history.

Battlechat 18. Mai – Teil 2

BattlechatEs ist spät geworden, aber Herb hat den zweiten Chat deutlich überzogen (das ist nichts Negatives, ganz im Gegenteil), daher kann ich ihn natürlich auch erst später zur Verfügung stellen.

Viel Spaß.

Battlechat 18. Mai – Teil 1

BattlechatDer erste Battlechat des Tages. Wie gewohnt, sauber sortiert, damit ihr ihn besser lesen könnt. Viel Spaß 🙂


[18:01] <@Habeas2> Welcome to another exciting monthly BattleChat day. This is the first chat of the day. CHat runs 1 hour, after which I gotta run an errand, so let’s begin. (Usual rules apply. If you don’t know them…. you’re on your own.)
[18:02] <@Habeas2> That said, floor’s open to questions. Welcome one and all!


[18:02] On the GenCon event schedule, there’s a listing for this: „Play in the conclusion of this year’s story arc featuring the Fall of Terra: a massive fracas finds the Republic challenged by Alaric Ward and his Clan Wolf forces.“ Will that event include preview Record Sheets for some of the new Wolf Empire and Republic of the Sphere units from TRO:3145?
[18:03] Or to be more specific, the PDF releases for TRO:3145 Clans and Republic.
[18:05] <@Habeas2> Nerroth – Yes. Or at least, it should. As long as it doesn’t get hung up in the concurrent production of the TRO itself.
[18:05] Are there any units in particular that one might expect to see, like the Warwolf or one of the Colossi; or is that still to be decided?
[18:07] <@Habeas2> Nerroth – Again, most likely, but cannot guarantee it absolutely.
[18:10] <@Habeas2> Nerroth – Still to be decided. One key factor we need to consider is that we’d need miniatures for said units ready in time for GenCon. That’s really iffy.

[18:04] What news is there about Gencon that you feel fit to share?
[18:07] <@Habeas2> JimdiGriz – GenCon will be in August. We have a big table evnt going on. Shadowrun is gonna have a lot of product, and maybe BattleTech will too. 😉

[18:59] One last question for now: Will the outcome of the „Fall of Terra“ event at GenCon have an impact on the storyline to be presented in the ilClan sourcebook?
[19:00] <@Habeas2> Nerroth – Yup. „Battlechat 18. Mai – Teil 1“ weiterlesen

Battlechat 20. April 2013 – Teil 1

BattlechatNeuer Monat (okay, ein paar Tage hat der eigentlich schon), neuer Battlechat. Wie immer konnte man Herb mit Fragen löchern und er hat, im Rahmen seiner Möglichkeiten, Antworten gegeben. Hauptthema diesmal waren TRO 3145 Mercenaries und Era Report 3145, was nicht wirklich überraschend war, aber auch Alpha Strike.

Der zweite Chat findet, wie gewohnt, um 2 Uhr statt. Ob ich da diesmal teilnehmen werde, kann ich noch nicht sagen. Aber selbst wenn nicht, gibt es morgen sicher trotzdem ein Log, wenn auch nicht so schön sortiert, wie sonst. „Battlechat 20. April 2013 – Teil 1“ weiterlesen
