Verily!

I'm now even more excited for TRO3145:DC then I was before. That's no mean feat.

Nice! Definitely a sleek and deadly looking mech.

Just like the CC one, the DC TRO looks full of win!

Makes waiting for the Davion one even harder....

Tenshi's an assault. Means Angel. Is Omni.  has bird legs, and a somewhat familiar shape...

I'm starting to wonder if the Tenshi is somehow related to the Archangel. Look at em, side by side.

So after a few weeks – and a nice helpful assist from Jason when I got hit with an unexpected video project at work – the TRO:3145 Draconis Combine was written, reviewed, edited, and drawn.

so it seems the TRO is almost done... maybe they are waiting to put on sale with FM: 3145? I love conspiracy theories!

Maybe, but so?

Probably middle of next month, since that seems to be the pattern.

well, it would make sense that the various IS powers would be employing reverse engineered WoB tech and designs. they were very good units..

Isn't the next up 3145:DC? Or is the Era Report already ready? I mean, either way I'm buying. Or both ways. I'm easy.

aren't you thinking of the Field Manual?

I was thinkng more that, even if TRO:3145 RotS was still a ways off, the game mechanics needed to convert the superheavy tripods to Alpha Strikeuse them in BattleTech might be handy to note.

And, of course, an even more "Colossal" event would be upon us, if we are about to finally peer behind the walls of the Fortress at long last...


Edit: TRO:3145 DC just went up on DTRPG!

Wow, TRO: 3145 DC is pretty awesome.  Some of art was kinda hit and miss with me..over-all pretty snazzy.  Deployment/Battle History was great and in formative.

I must admit that I was leery at first upon hearing about faction specific TRO that weren't experimental tech but I have definitely changed my mind now. One thing I am really liking with the Faction specific TRO's is that everyone seems to be getting the same amount of attention.

Some of the other older TRO's seemed to have tons of designs for certain factions and virtually none for others. Considering how large a lot of those TRO's were I can understand limiting things or just not having enough space or time but I feel like this approach allows each faction some time to shine.

It also feels out the factions ranks and lets them feel alot more seperate. I'm enjoying DC mechs being DC mechs and CC mechs being CC mechs.

I love old 4th succession war mechs but most of the designs were proliferated.

It occurred to me that the PDFs themselves seem to be somewhat divided into two major groups, in terms of their respective orders of publication; ones which echo the major theatres of conflict in the Inner Sphere as of 3145.

With the Liao(-Centrella) and Kurita files set to be followed by the Davions, the three most active protagnists/antagonists (depending on one's point of view) are all listed one after another in the release schedule. And once they are done, the focus will shift to anti-spinward; with the Marik, Steiner, and Clan (to include that other Steiner) files rolling out before the spotlight doubles back towards the Republic of the Sphere itself.

It will be interesting, once the Federated Suns get their file out, to see the discussions started in Bonfire (and which seem to have been somewhat eclipsed by talk about the spinward side of the Sphere ever since ER:3145 went up) emerge a little more prominently, perhaps.

Not really strange. The Davion vs. Liao and Davion vs. Kurita battles are pretty simple affairs compared to the free-for-all in Steiner/Marik space. You can write up the background stories pretty quick and not worry about conflict.

have there been any print copies of Era Report: 3145 seen out "in the wild" as of yet?


Also, while there are some TRO:3145 files which have certain 'Mechs or other units to look out for (such as the Warwolf and Shrike in the Clan file, or the Colossi for the Republic of the Sphere), there are a couple of faction-specific books that I have less of an idea of what to expect for. Specifically, I'm not too familiar with what will show up over on the antispinward side of the Inner Sphere, technology-wise.

Are there any particular units from MW:DA/AoD which people are looking forward to seeing in the TRO:3145 volumes for the Free Worlds League or the Lyran Commonwealth?

And if the Exiles are a good bet to go in the Steiner file (which seems like a reasonable assumption, given the presence of "associated realm" 'Mechs in the first three PDFs), did they have any particular units built on Arc-Royal that might be worth looking out for?
