Finally, a date is included for when a PDF/e-pub/print-PDF Pre-order becomes available, as well as the Street Date (i.e. when it is available on game store shelves) for print books, once that is known.

Touring the Stars: Mizar (E-Publication) [PDF]
PDF Released: 10 April 2017

The two thousand worlds of human space often claim to have some incredible beauty spot that is unrivaled by any other world. Some worlds claim to be the most beautiful entire world known to humanity. Statistically, one has to be correct, and that world is Mizar. This freakish accident of planetology has thrilled tourists, earned a title as champion party planet, and avoided most wars for centuries until the Word of Blake arrived.

Touring the Stars is a whistle-stop tour of the universe! Every system and planet where mankind treads in the BattleTech universe has a story, for those with the drive to explore it. Take a tour of the stars humanity now calls home, experience awesome new worlds, immerse yourself in the local civilization, and prepare to do battle in exotic locales.

 

Touring the Stars: Old Kentucky (E-Publication) [PDF]
PDF Released: 28 March 2017

When the first waves of explorers and settlers departed Terra for the great black ocean, not all looked to the future—some longed for the traditional values of the past. One such group made their new home on Old Kentucky, a world near the heart of humanity which has persevered through centuries of abandonment, conflict and conquest.

Touring the Stars: Old Kentucky details this hot, rugged world, its proud history, and its native “sasquatch” primates.

Spotlight On: Stone’s Trackers (E-Publication) [PDF]
PDF Released: 15 March 2017

Backstabbers. Assassins. Cowards. Dezgra.

To the elite headhunters of Stone’s Trackers, these labels mean nothing. The only true measure of a warrior is success, and the Trackers will go to any length to ensure that Devlin Stone’s vision does not falter.

Forged in the flames of the Jihad from a secret Clan Nova Cat unit and comprised of Inner Sphere and Clan veterans alike, the Trackers take on the missions too dirty for regular commands to touch. Masters of infiltration, ambush, and marksmanship, they are the ghosts at the edge of the firelight, the wraiths that even MechWarriors have learned to fear.

From the battlefields of Operation SCOUR to glory of the Capellan Crusades, Stone’s Trackers hold to a code of honor of their own making, one that demands victory at any cost.

Spotlight On: Stone’s Trackers includes a Unit History, Personalities, Personnel Rosters, Mission Tracks, and data for use with all scales of BattleTech play.

PDF Released: 24 February 2017

Billed as a lost world paradise for thrill seekers and wannabe explorers, Iron Land has a dark history seldom spoken of, as those who know of it either never live to tell the tale, or live to profit from it. The dark history of this tortured world both resonates with, and haunts those drawn to it from across the stars. Iron Land is a planet where you can check out any time you like, but never leave.

Spotlight On: Crescent Hawks (E-Publication) [PDF]
PDF Released: 17 October 2016

For every Kell Hounds or Wolf’s Dragoons, there are a hundred similar outfits that are just as talented—and just as deadly—that you have never heard of. Or worse, you have not heard enough. Sure, the glory hounds who make the evening tri-vid news are movers and shakers, and can change national borders whenever they want, but they’re not the only ones. For every Eridani Light Horse brigade, there is a mercenary crew with a storied battlefield history just as spectacular. These are the unit commands that have gone largely unnoticed in the long, bloody history of the Inner Sphere, their stories untold or nearly forgotten. Take a closer look at the battles and events that have shaped the human sphere, and you’ll find even two-bit troops like Wilson’s Hussars have made a difference.

Spotlight On: Crescent Hawks includes a Unit History, Personalities, Personnel Rosters, Mission Tracks, and data for use with all scales of BattleTech play.
