Both Legacy articles noted in the directory would predate the LGC-04-WVR, though.

Bummer. Well, the request still stands if the original author still has it. Anyone have any idea who that could be?

Finished writing up the Jade Hawk, it's ready to go whenever.

If nobody minds, I'd like to reserve the Rokurokubi.

I'd love to see someone do updates for the Banshee and Men Shen.

I can try to do the Banshee.  The Men Shen I'm not particularly familiar with (and is primarily Liao, so no thanks :D).

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.

Anyone mind if I take the Tomahawk II? It'll help me work out some stress against the HAG.

I could probably take the Men Shen for a later date, but I rarely play anymore.

Can I get the Mongrel put back on the list? It might be wrapped up in consternation (IS AC on a Clan machine?), but it should at least be lively...

I'm hesitant to go down the road of anything with actuators.  But, I might take a crack at the Violator if no one else wants it.  I'll dig out my rose colored glasses.

If the review doesn't include the phrase:  "Stop!  Hammer time!"  I'mma be disappointed in all of you.

I've never done a MotW before but I'd love to take a crack at the Jackalope. It's very weird in a lot of ways but still a capable combatant.

My Jackalope article is done (I guess for next week?) in case any of the more experienced MotW types want to make sure it's up to snuff. Or you can trust me.

Just a question: How long are the moratoriums on new products?

Six weeks has been the generally accepted moratorium for any for-pay product. Free stuff is available right away.

Speaking of which, I'd like to put a reservation of the Cave Lion to be posted at some point after the moratorium expires. Hopefully not too long *edit* after the moratorium period has passed. ( #P)

I'm not trying to claim the article, but if you've got any questions about the TRO fluff for the Carronade you can send me a PM.
