Since I didn’t get any pushback, I went ahead and made two forces for an Aces play test. Miniatures provided, just bring dice. You can also bring a 200PV force if you want to run something you came up with. I’ll also bring the usual classic and alpha strike forces for some free play if people want to do that instead.

Looks like I might actually be available this Sunday. Are there any plans? Mechwarrior? Aero?

We talked about a classic game. My dad is in town, so I’m still trying to figure if I’ll be there. I’ve got the busts I had printed for you and whistler, but it might have to wait till next time.

6k game, then? I can do that.

One last question: Do we allow FAEs? They're not WMDs and I'm paying the full BV for them of course, but I still wanted to check before I brought any.

Uhh, I’d have to look. I don’t remember us talking about them. I assume we are talking about fuel air explosives, and not a white wolf role playing game ;D

If you're talking about the plasma-armed monocycle, that's in TRO Irregulars.

Bear in mind, the stats and sheet the are NOT for a full motorized infantry platoon but for running the cycles as individual vehicles.

The only plasma-armed infantry unit I can think of are the Heavy Urban Response platoon in the Lyran infantry section of TRO 3085.

Unless someone has objections, I’d say let’s just plan for a generic pickup game. 400pv or 6k BV.

Alright, so mentioned this Sunday and during previous games, and I know Sevengates has been chomping at the bit for awhile now: how about a Classic game using the pilot cards this Sunday(16th)?

I was thinking:

Mix and match factions.
- cause not every faction has or has enough pilot cards, and not everybody OWNS all the pilot cards

You have to use the mech variant listed for that pilot.
- no putting that amazing trebuchet pilot in a bigger missile boat. You want them, you gotta put up with their ride.

Legendary pilots allowed, minus Morgan Kell.
- they will put a target on your head, especially Natasha, but that’s fine. However, I’m not sure everybody wants to put up with the five pages of text for phantom mech xp.

Ideas? Feedback? Concerns?

I was about to post up everything since there appears to be no pushback. Yes, our normal BV/PV 6k/400.

Gen-X this Sunday for some  Classic and Alpha Pilot card mayhem!.

When: Sunday, July 16th

Where: Generation X in Bedford, TX. 12pm doors open, 5-5:30close.

Rules: Any tech, any era, any faction. 6K BV, or 400PV. We recommend bringing a force for each system.

Pilot cards are allowed. Pilots must be assigned to their specific Mech chassis and Variant.

You may mix and match pilots from different eras and factions.

Legendary Mechwarriors are allowed, One per player, excluding Morgan Kell.

Pay BV/PV assuming every unit is P&G 4/5 and Skill 4.

Pilots WILL have their printed P&G or a Skill rating equal to their Gunnery. SPA's as well. Incase said pilot does not have a SPA that exists in the game sytem they are being used in,
Treat them as having a Lucky SPA equal to their printed SPA cost.

A couple of quick questions:

Since MOST pilot cards have a matching Alpha Strike card, do you use that mech?

If there is no matching AS card, can you choose the variant?

(that's the way I'm going)

So, unless the card specified which variant, you could put them in any variant, as long as it’s that specific mech.

For example: Natasha specifically mentions the Widomaker on her pilot card. That that’s the version she has to be assigned to. (Not exactly a Downside…but still)

Delmar Clays pilot card says wolverine, but doesn’t specify which variant. So you can assign him to any Wolverine variant you want, as long as it’s a Wolverine.

Hey Evan, it looks like the Loew's Arlington Hotel & Convention Center IS the new convention center (or will be); I thought it was already complete.

Yeah, that’s what I thought. The way they go on about it, you’d think they’d already gotten it done.

Classic cityfight scenario at Gen-X.

When: Sunday, July 23rd

Where: Generation X in Bedford, TX. 12pm doors open, 5-5:30close.

Rules: Fixed city fight scenario, Standard Battletech rules, Forces will be provided.

Note: I'm not sure about the details, I was just asked to provide terrain. I'd suggest bringing a 6K BV and 400PV force for freeplay in case we don't have enough room or
the organizer cancels.

Had a great time last weekend, this Sunday (the 30th) is an old fashioned Davion vs Kurita with a few surprises thrown in. It was great seeing everyone, and looking forward to this weekend as well then I am out of town on Monday.  Hope to see you Sunday. - Marc
