Era Report 3052 The Aurigan Reach
« on: 27 December 2020, 11:09:52 »
Era Report 3052 The Aurigan Reach

What happened to the Reach in the 4th Succession War? How did the leaders of the Periphery states interact with Lady Arano? How did the Clan Invasion effect the Reach? What was Kamea Arano’s lasting legacy? Was their a relationship between Alexander Madeira and Kamea Arano?

In writing this, I know some people will of course have there own personal vision of what happened to Lady Kamea Arano. This is mine. I hope you enjoy it!

Precentor Marshall Focht,

May I congratulate you on your recent victory at Tukayyid. All of ComStar and the InnerSphere are in your debt.

I hereby submit to you a detailed report on the region known as the Aurigan Reach which should be considered an update to the last ROM intelligence report from 3028. I have included the main personalities and powers in the immediate region....

Good read. Gives a reason why no one recognizes the state as well as builds on the lack of leadership suffered at the tail end of the restoration. Particularly enjoy how no one in this had a happy ending. Because in the Inner Sphere who ever does?
I don't set an example for others. I make examples of them.

Nice piece of work I enjoyed reading it will be interesting to see how this compares to the Canon ending for the nation assuming it does come to an end

TPTB?

I doubt there ever will be a mention of the Arano Reach again in Canon beyond the House Arano book. To do so would need the input of HBS who have moved on to other things.

You never know what they'll do... last I checked, they're actually going to publish Herb's last piece of the Stevens saga.  Anything could happen!  8)

A few I missed, a few mistakes I made.  I don't do this as a career, I was just using a modification of the standard errata template from this site.

For the style, the blank space to either side of the text seems to take up a lot of the screen, I assume this is to make the page viewable on mobile?

Thank you so much for this, idea weenie! This is incredible and so professional! Do you do this for a job?

Just finished going though and making the changes, would never have spotted a lot of these.

I’m glad you liked it! Any other thoughts about the style?

And I would not have found it surprising if he did.
He grew up in the Order after all. It's all he's ever known.
If he ever decides to come home and take it over, all he'd do is turn the Coalition into another Comstar/WOB patsy.

House Arano book only exist because demand so who knows. Personally, think everyone is moving on but still a fun concept to play with.

Interesting setup. Don't think that is how it would play out exactly but whatever it is one interpretation. But it does look like there is a setup for the two mechwarriors to meet up on the anti-clan front. This might mean they return to depose the new High Lord if he is starting to go down the Liao crazy train again like so many others of that family. Though really it is Kamea's fault this all happened as it was that exact attitude and unwillingness to act that caused the coup in the first place. Her naivety and disregard for the reality of ruling caused the civil war and it seemed that she learned her lesson after the civil war but then she goes and makes the same mistake again.

Oh, he did plenty wrong but the reasons that forced him to take those actions were mostly Kamea's fault and more importantly the fault of the council that was dicking around trying to get the best deal for themselves only at the expense of the other worlds and the Coalition as a whole. If Kamea had listened instead of being an idiot none of what happened would have been necessary.

Do you have a pdf version of this report?
In turn they tested each Clan namesake
In trial against the ice hellion's mettle.
Each chased the ice hellion, hunting it down.
All faild to match the predator's speed and grace.

I totally endorse a PDF version just because it will preserve the stuff written up incase something happens to the online version.
