Which is still part of the 80's, technically the 80's where from 1981 to 1990 inclusive

That makes no sense.

That makes no sense.

of course it does. every decade starts at X1 and ends at X0
there was no "year zero"
the first decade started at year 1 and ended at year 10. what doesn't make sense is "the first decade had only 9 years" to justify decades starting at X0 and ending at X9

and sorry for the off-off-topic

Leading to topic,  so does it look like the Republic content is going be in the printed only book?   Its been kinda confusing with going back and forth on it.

apparently they haven't decided yet. it may only show up in the 'full' TRO3145 that compiles all the mini-TRO's we've en getting. they have said there will be a PDF version of the full TRO3145 either way.

Yeah, because that worked so well.

Well in the movie they used a psychotic, murderous thug.  In the Clans you would use Clan warriors who are...um...oh. Oh!  Never mind.

So here is a question for the Future. (trying ot get back near topic) *pulls out a Plugger*

   Is the Clan Protectorate going to join the Fee Worlds League all nice like or is there going to be war! I am sure the Nova Cat survivors are not gonna be to keen on joining a nother Great House seeing how their clan was destroyed by House Kurita. How about the Wolf Empire?


What does the fox say?

The Clan Protectorate IS a part of the Free Worlds League.  They have seats in parliament and everything.

Is it confirmed that any significant number of Nova Cats as distinct from spirit cats made it to the protectorate?

If the protectorate wanted to break away from the FWL would the Wolf Empire want them? Would they want them enough to potentially violate the non-aggression pact with the FWL?

What of the seafox elements in the protectorate?

The Wolf Empire is a distinct political entity - a separate state - and is no more interested in having seats in Parliament than the Kuritans would be.

No disrespect but how do you know? isn't the reason for these time jumps is to open up the future? to mix it up a little? say Alaric's plans back fire and the Wolves find them selves in the position of trying to play the FWL vs the Commonwealth?, what if a weaker Clan Wolf Khan comes along and suddenly the Wolf empire has to decide to go Lyran or FWL? What if the Commonwealth gets it's act together and shoves the Wolf Empire back into it's FWL holdings Alaric is dead the Wolves are on the run what now?   

Or maybe the Wolf Empire is like the Roman Empire and eventually splits it half or you have ton of back stabbing?

Whats the use of these time jumps if all we ever do is fallback to the same old routine?

I think ColBosch (jump in if I'm wrong) like myself didn't appreciate the level of stress you were placing on the Future part of your question as we both appear to have answered on the basis of it being 3145ish.

Further forward into the future all sorts of things could happen but we won't know till we get there.

The Sea Foxes, through Delta Aimag of the Spina Khanate, have representation in Parliament.

pretty sure there is a moratorium on information beyond 3151.. after some of the negative responses to the hints about the initial plans for the time jump to 3250, TPTB have pretty much clammed up about anything after the current 3145 timeperiod.

I can only make my observations based upon game lore and canon, and as of the last information we had the Wolf Empire has its sights set on the Lyran Commonwealth - up to the Khan declaring himself Archon (and then backing somewhat down, but his intentions are clear) - and nothing showing any desire to merge with the FWL. Hell, why would they want to? They already killed the Captain-General, shattered their main forces, and nearly caused the whole thing to fall apart again. They wouldn't become part of the FWL, they'd ****** conquer it.

The Warden-General was the one they killed.  Thaddeus Marik.  But I agree with the rest of your statement.

No disrespect but how do you know? isn't the reason for these time jumps is to open up the future? to mix it up a little?

Nobody knows for sure, except the writers.  But there's no evidence that the Wolves plan to merge with anyone.  Otherwise, why would they have formed the Empire?

say Alaric's plans back fire and the Wolves find them selves in the position of trying to play the FWL vs the Commonwealth?

They're pretty much doing that now.

Or maybe the Wolf Empire is like the Roman Empire and eventually splits it half or you have ton of back stabbing?

A Wolf split has already been done.  The Exiles.  Don't want to repeat ourselves, right? ;)

Whats the use of these time jumps if all we ever do is fallback to the same old routine?

The existence of new powers such as the Wolf Empire pretty much destroy the idea of the same old routine.

Horses move and take over the clan protectorate after they get word from the Star Adders of impending invasion.  HW clans are out to get the Flacons and use the Horse OZ as their launching pad.  Once the Falcons are gone then they go for the Bears followed by the Wolves.  Lyran's get wiped off the map also.  Fortress wall comes down and Terra is no more......

Why would the Adders warn the Horses? They are tainted just as much as the other IS Clans. (Though I could see the Lions warning them.)

I think it's a reference to the ongoing conspiracy theory that the Horses and/or the Foxes are working for/with/as part of the Homeworld Clans  :)

I don't think it counts as a theory if there's no evidence.

Hmm, if the Wolves-in-Exile are the next to fall? There is bad blood between them and the Wolves (absorbing them) and there might even be Lyran factions attacking them alone for using them as scapegoats.

Killing them off would be a great surprise and the dawn of a truly new era of Battletech.
