I'm sure we could survive a week off in such an unlikely occurrence. If not, I can throw together one about the Hogarth OmniMech.
Kit, is that from that XTRO you finished last year? Because neither the MUL or Sarna say there is such a 'Mech

Since the old one has fallen off the archives, is there an issue with requesting a slot of a Nova Cat article I've recently wrapped up?

Hmmm... Two things.

One, I've completed the write-up on the BattleMaster, so slot it where you wish.

Two... when exactly am I supposed to post a back-up article? Seems to me I wait a bit long (and based on my last slot, need to)...

Guys, I screwed up with the Locusts... can someone jump in? Haven't had a chance to get the articles done and right now I'm not sure I will get the other one done for this week...


Sorry :(

Situations like this are why I put those two articles on reserve.  Kotetsu, you up for it?

Summoner article is up.

Kansas City players, or people who are just passing through the area, come join us at the Geekery just off Shawnee Mission Parkway for BattleTech!  Current days are Tuesdays in the afternoon and evening.  I can't make every single week, but odds are pretty good that somebody will be there.

That's where Gmail and a little imagination come in, set up multiple accounts on both

Yup.  Finish an article up, email it to yourself, so if your HD crashes, you can just download it from the email.

Or just use the free Drive space you get from having a Gmail account.  Easier to use and even harder to misplace than an email to yourself.

Any chance of getting someone to cover the Dig Lord/Deep Lord series? I can't help it, they look so nice I can't help but love them ;)

Dig Lord first appeared in TRO: Vehicle Annex, then against in DATP: Vega along with an armed variant. Deep Lord was first in an XTRO, I think Periphery, and then a refined version is in TRO: Prototypes. While technically a civilian unit, the original is one of my favorite things to sneak into a force. People ignore the 'puny' IndustrialMech, but then there's the screaming and the greasing, the burning and everyone's on acid and can't see becuase Zoidberg got ink in their eyes, and then sombody's gotten their hand lopped off and the Dig Lord of the Sith is the father...

That wouldn't work in our group. As an Industrial 'Mech, it would be an "easy" target. And with our kill ratio being one of the victory points...

I'd try running it before you assume it to be an easy kill... 8)

...but that's a discussion for another thread.
