It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World
« on: 27 October 2020, 14:29:14 »
Recently while discussing which Rec Guide 'Mechs we wanted to take for a spin the Marauder, Marauder II and Marauder IIC were high on everyone's lists. Then someone suggested putting them all in the same lance. And someone else suggested rounding out the lance with a Mad Cat.

Challenge accepted:

Lance A 10,028 bv
Mad Cat M
Marauder Bounty Hunter 3044
Marauder IIC 9
MAD-5B Marauder II

Lance B 10,020 bv
Mad Cat T
MAD-7S Marauder
Marauder IIC 8
MAD-8K Marauder II


We threw down a couple of neoprenes and ran everything with 3/4 skills.

The game was a total blast!

It came down to a one armed, one legged Mad Cat T that managed to stand up 10 hexes away from a prone, gyro-less Marauder IIC 9 in heavy woods. Then the Marauder IIC lost an arm.

Game over.

If you want a fairly quick immensely fun match-up, give it a try.
I have spoken.

That sounds like just the right amount of Marauder.

Miller’s Marauders and Barber’s Marauder IIs approve.
"Ah, yes.  The belle dame sans merci.  The sweet young thing who will blast your nuts off.  The kitten with a whip.  That mystique?"
"Slavish adherence to formal ritual is a sign that one has nothing better to think about."
"Variety is the spice of battle."
"I've fought in... what... a hundred battles, a thousand battles?  It could be a million as far as I know.  I've fought for anybody who offered a decent contract and a couple who didn't.  And the universe is not much different after all that.  I could go on fighting for another hundred years and it would still look the same."

If you included a Mad Cat, I think it's fair to also include the Catapult too  ;)

I could get crazier with other relatives but I think I'll stop there!

None of the others have any hands, so why let that stop you?

That was actually a joke referring to the fact that old record sheets of the Dragon Fire gave it hands when the art clearly shows none.This has since been fixed.
