No idea. However since first chapter was originally written in 2003 and latest last year, it is possible we could see more of it. As far as I know, Grey doesn't have account on this forum and having copies of those stories on this forum could be pointless becouse this forum has been cleared before and likely will be in future.

I was thinking the same thing as well, but if there are going to be more stories in the near future I would like to see them here because I do not have an account on the HMP forums so I cannot follow it and give feedback there.

Ghost Riders
In the aftermath of the most devastating war in history, a mixed force including the last descendants of some of Earth's most ancient military units vanishes without a trace. More than two centuries later it reappears above an agri-world named Planting.

Ghosts of the Futures Past
TH-X1138 is lost in time. Their first battle with the Clans was a victory, but at heavy cost. As the Inner Sphere turns a cautious eye towards them, other forces are moving and Seeker Atalanta continues a quest that may lead to peace, dishonor, or worse.

This just in from author of Concrete Dragons:
Quote from: Shades of Grey
I haven't "retired" from anything except the Navy. But yeah, real life, and my computer gaming life (WoW, SWTOR, Skyrim, etc.), are both rather demanding. As for more Concrete Dragons stories...well, I have a few brewing. But the canon CBT universe post-3067 is a place I don't like very much, and that has kinda turned me off to the game in general, so I haven't felt much motivation to write.

Maybe that will change soon. Maybe. I just opened up HMVee yesterday for the first time in months...
You know what they say, don't you? About how us MechWarriors are the modern knights errant, how warfare has become civilized now that we have to abide by conventions and rules of war. Don't believe it.

Thanks for the heads up, I am looking forwards to any future stories if he finds the motivation again.

In the middle of Ghosts of the Futures Past, frakking awesome work!  Enjoying the read immensely.

I second the above. Excellent stories both of them, and I'm eagerly awaiting the update of the latest.

One of the fact that most intrigues me, which the author has thus far carefully kept from the locals, is that the SLDF taskforce has a strength of 40 compact core jump capable warships and supplyships (including Battleships, cruisers, frigates, destroyers, carriers etc.

Taskforce. Yeh. Right. In 2780 maybe. At the time of the clan invasion, that's a damn fleet. The federated commonwealth don't seem to have realised this yet :D. I'm looking forward to when they and the clans find out.   


BTW, Blacktiger I must confess I thought you and the Ferryman to be one and the same person. Your stories have similar themes, similar ideas, and are both so good that I thought they might be from the same hand. Please do take that as a compliment. It was meant as one.

blacktigeractual's writing is better. Oh, and I could without the Stackpoling fusion reactor in the last chapter and the rather bad attempt at explaining it.

Anyone who still has extant copies of my older stuff, is perfectly welcome to repost it.
The core rules for interacting with me:

1.) I am not a moderator, game developer, member of Cryptic staff, relative of any members of cryptic staff, not close friends with anyone involved with the game, not a distributor of product, not an employee, employer, professional reviewer, or member of any powerful conspiracies.  What I think is my own and has no impact on the Battletech franchise in any way, shape, or form.

2) If you don't like something I've said, refer to rule 1.  If you do, god help you poor soul, you're screwed up.

it would be nice if they could make a section for any fans fiction that gets over a 1000 views to have the story posted in book format.  something like that anyway.  that way stuff that is older could be held any one who needed a fix could read them

Well, it would appear that the links to the archive are toast, which means that I no longer have access to DD/2, Drumbeat/Redux, or the Lucian March  >:(. I still have DD/1 complete and in PDF, and I believe that I still have Thunder of Eagles, as well. I will try to upload both shortly.

If any kind soul happens to have copied the other three above, or if anyone knows where they are now linked, I would sincerely appreciate the info....Thanks

http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8596635/1/Terran-Hegemony-House-Kerensky

Having read the entire thing, it's more of a Field Manual for House Kerensky/Terran Hegemony as if the events had taken place instead of the Exodus. I would say they either use it for their house game or it is the results thereof. In time, maybe a fanfic will show up referencing it. Not sure if the buildup to the fork in the timeline was official or rewritten by the author...

Honestly, it needs to be PDF'd and the TRO fleshed out and turned into a mini-fanTRO with some kind of art. It's not to the level of the Terran Hegemony fanbook PDFs I see floating in the Internet, but it's a pretty well put together attempt.

Sorry if this is a bit of a dead topic but I found a couple of good fanfics of Deviantart. They can both be found in this gallery along with pictures of the main characters and the equipment used.

He's said he has no plans to work on it again. The dangers of not plotting a story before you start writing it.

Heh heh...something that tripped me up with my own writing. That and my fic is based off of the campaign I play in, so I have to change things here and there sometimes. I just decided that it might be better to write down ideas and concepts I really like in Word so that I can simply modify it to fit into the story.

That and I can keep up with college better when I don't have ten tons of ideas ratting around in my skull.
