7 August 3132. On that day, eighty percent of the hyperpulse generators throughout the Inner Sphere fell silent and humanity’s communications link across the stars was severed. While many looked to the Republic of the Sphere for guidance through the darkness, others used the crisis to advance their own agendas and political ideologies. As a new era began, old hatreds and rivalries, long suppressed in the optimism of Stone’s Peace, threatened to overwhelm all that had been achieved in the new century.
A Dark Age had fallen, one that would see the death of empires and the rise of tyrants. And the seeds of destruction would be planted in these first days after the Blackout.
Era Digest: Dark Age is a mini-sourcebook that explores the pivotal developments in the immediate aftermath of the HPG Blackout, giving players a glimpse at early reactions to the crisis and the rise of the splinter factions fighting to take advantage of the chaos. Complete with rules and stats for several Dark Age units, Era Digest: Dark Age also features role-playing support for this crucial setting in BattleTech history!
Era Digest: Dark Age is available from the following eBook/PDF vendors:
The Clans, brainchild of Nicholas Kerensky, emerged from the ashes of the decimated Star League Defense Force to create a new order in distant lands. Ritualizing combat, they established a new society where only the strongest warriors rule and justice is won through battle.
Ironically, it would be the death of the Clans’ founder that would catalyze this new society and spur a period of amazing technological and social growth known as the Golden Century. This was the age where Kerensky’s warriors and their descendants truly forged themselves into the powerful army that would one day return to the Inner Sphere in a righteous Crusade.
Era Digest: Golden Century is a mini-sourcebook that describes the development of the Clans at their origin in a new series format, giving players a glimpse of early Clan life, the basics of Clan rituals, and a look at the rise and fall of Clan Mongoose. Complete with rules and stats for several Golden Century units—including the first OmniMechs—Era Digest: Golden Century also features role-playing support for this crucial period in BattleTech history!
Era Digest: Golden Century is available from the following eBook/PDF vendors:
Between the collapse of the Terran Alliance, and the rise of the First Star League, humankind was scattered among the worlds of the Inner Sphere. Driven by their own ambitions and united by fear of their neighbors, mighty star empires rose up from the ashes of abandoned colonies, absorbing the remains of mankind’s interstellar exodus, and gave rise to the noble Houses of the Inner Sphere.
Driven by greed, fear, and dreams of glory, these Houses were at war by the dawn of the twenty-fifth century. The decades of conflict would leave no realm untouched, and forever altered the course of human destiny.
Era Digest: Age of War is a mini-sourcebook that explores the pivotal developments of the Sphere-wide fighting that ultimately led to the birth of the Star League, featuring a glimpse of life in the BattleTech universe before the age of the BattleMech, the rise of neo-feudalism, and a look at the evolution of combat from the savagery of “total warfare” to the chivalry of MechWarriors. Complete with rules and stats for several Age of War units, Era Digest: Age of War also features role-playing support for this crucial setting in BattleTech history!

BattleTech is a science-fiction “space opera”: a factional, militarized universe set in the thirty-first century, a future where humanity has spread to the stars and spawned titanic interstellar empires, each nation controlling hundreds of worlds across a region of space stretching a thousand light years and beyond.
Initially published over thirty years ago as a tabletop board game, BattleTech has gone on to become one of the gaming industry’s most important and longest-lasting science-fiction universes.
