Nine Star Stories
« on: 02 September 2017, 22:28:31 »
Greetings everyone!

I had some questions regarding the Fronc Reaches but seeing as I couldn't find a thread... here is one. Everyone interested in being a Colonial Marshal and getting a badge for your mech is welcome.

On to the questions - considering running something in the Dark Age and I noted that there isn't a random table for the Fronc Reaches in the Field Manual 3145. Does anyone have any recommendation on mechs that would be found in the Fronc Reaches at that time? Should I just use FM 3085 as a basis? The only mention I get is that by that time period the Fronc Reach can make Wasps, Stingers, Locusts, Clints, Toros, Riflemen and Hunchbacks on its own.

I would use the regular Periphery table but I note that back in 3085 the Fronc Reach table was heavily influenced by having the Taurians, Cappies and Canopans all trading with them. Was that trade still a continuing thing later on?

There is a Master unit list for battletech, you can probably find mechs under the periphery general list.
You can look on Sarna for production of Detroit.
I believe the produced Marshalls, Ostroc, Eyleuka, Duan Gung, Anubis, Stingers and Wasps.
Just look up MUL Battletech on google for the site.
I wish I could get a good grip on reality, then I would choke it.

Fronc Reaches would use the FM3145 Generic Periphery table.

Thanks for the response - the MUL will certainly be useful.

I also did note, on looking further, that the Canopians apparently gave a small tithe from the Detroit plant to the Fronc Reaches - unknown how long that lasted.

I am aware that the Fronc Reaches would later on use the general Periphery table - I'm just looking for any mechs that would be especially relevant to the Fronc Reaches compared to other states.

Acording to FM:3145, they are producing introtech Clints, Hunchbacks, Riflemans, Locusts, Wasps, Stingers, retrotech Toros and the armed industrimech Raider. Also Vedettes and Hertzers.

Yep - I did some looking and I can sort of guess for myself that based on 3085 and what they had most commonly, a good shortlist for most common Fronc Reaches mechs would be something as follows.

Anubis
Stinger
Wasp
Locust
Commando
Toro
--
Marshal
Hunchback
Clint
Vindicator
Griffin
Raider
--
Ostroc
Rifleman
Thunderbolt
Warhammer
Archer
Cataphract
--
Stalkers
Longbows
Awesome
Victor

It seemed like an appropriate name. :)

In any event - does anyone know if there were any stories or such written featuring the Fronc Reaches? Or where is the best place to go to look for information on them?
