Not sure which you mean?  JL-1 and JL-2 were the Jacob's Ladder 1 & 2 versions

My bad, should've phrased that differently. All Mechs in that TOC are IndustrialMechs. That in itself sets the Raider apart.

Ooh, maybe the LoggerMechs from Verthandi?

THERE IS NO SURPRISE RELEASE.

Can we PLEASE stop putting this into the water supply??? It's completely exhausting.
I was only commenting on what someone else had said...sorry.  :(

Well, the Raider is not much different than the Inquisitor II IIRC, Bannson was trying to get a mech on the cheap.

How is irregulars structured? Does it cover up to current? Is it multiple eras? (This is a 3sw common design, this one jihad, this one early dark age).
Also when is that coming out?

I think it's because nothing's been announced for the ilClan sourcebook. No release date I'm aware of, but it would be a relevant book, with HotW dropping and the iRCGs nearing the end of their run, so people are hoping and speculating.

I know that's what I was wondering, when I inquired about the iRCG delay, whether we were getting HotW simultaneously with a surprise release of ilClan. But then you said Nope, no surprise and I stopped wondering.

Rec Guides aren’t even halfway (would have been today if there wasn’t the one week pushback).

No this second run was supposed to take us to 11 out of 22, then they added a twelfth, and then pushed the rest of this run back a week.

So, a mech's write-up would have given way too much detail about the ilClan era and the whole guide needed to be delayed a week. Got it. </silly>

Exactly. In addition to all the other Kickstarter 'Mechs that haven't gotten Rec Guide entries yet, we still have new stuff that's been in the fiction or previous Rec Guide entries that hasn't shown up in a TRO or Rec Guide.

Is there a table of contents?  I would love to know if there was a improvement to the Raider- like under the Republic, Cappies, or FedSuns put in a FCE or even better a SFE when they took over the 2 worlds where Bannson built the designs.
Yup!

You may be thinking of my announcement awhile back that there was (originally) going to be up to vol. 11 in this second cycle of Rec Guides, before we take another brief break to rest and reload. Since then, we've added vol. 12 to the second cycle, but then the break.

So Vol. 11 on 1/15, Vol. 12 on 1/29, then a break.

This is a good place to say again: these Rec Guides have been a solid success for the line, so thank you for everyone who's been along for the ride, whether you've only picked up one or two, or each and every one. We appreciate it.

Mid-to-late second quarter, but it's priority no. 1--honestly, it's the thing keeping me up nights right now. The main Terra sections are written (again, god bless JoeChummer), we're just trying to nail down the "other" chapters and some of the crunch.

Hour of the Wolf was a big book, literally and figuratively, and it changed and shifted a lot through development. Now that it's out, we need to make sure we fully understand what it left us to work with, and use the non-Terra material to seed some things that are going to happen going forward.

Just my 2cents, But i Really like how the recguides give us something to Look forward to short term (more or less every other week when they are releasing).
And the size and prize make it much more attraktiv to Pick one up even when I'm just interested in one or two chasis Featured in one.

I realy hope there's going to be something similar in the Pipeline for when the recguides are All out.

Will it cover events after 3151 (like in 3152....not 3250) or is it pretty exclusively 3151?

Glad to hear it.

Even happier to hear that. Well, I mean, not as happy as I would be to hear that it was due for a release any day now, but having a window like that I can stop hoping it'll pop up for a few months. Yes, I'm still champing at the bit for it, even with HotW out.

It would be great to get a big update about what is coming in the next year or so. As the kickstarter starts winding down, hopefully new and existing projects get moving fast and are able to get the attention that had to be put into the kickstarter!

We can assume there will be novels continuing after HotW, but so far nothing was officially announced. Given, that every announcement would contain spoilers for HotW, that seems a reasonable way to handle it for now. Give it a month or two for everyone to catch up on HotW, then we will probably get to know more.

Yup!

Speaking of upgrades - what can be inferred by the naming conventions of those 'Mechs?

As mentioned in a later comment, all IndustrialMechs, all the time. But I did see two things that have really piqued my interest:

Quote
Firebee MilitiaMech
Centurion MilitiaMech

Which makes me think maybe someone heard of the Raider and thought "I can do better."
