so what your saying is I can take a merc battalion, take over a FWL world, and get a Parliament seat?

Remember the Clanners also crippled the real Marik family. No landhold means they lose a LOT of their standing.

There may be some additional paperwork, birth certificates, passports, that kind of thing.  ;D

Will we again get two TROs in quick succession as a compensation for them being late (as was the case with CC and DC ones)?

The next one is late? I thought they were coming once a month except the catchup period.

I'm just getting back into buying the sourcebooks (rabid 3025'er here).  I picked this up at Origins and thumbed through it today and I have a question.  This book pretty much closes out the Dark Age, and the next Battletech era is going to be set in the 3250s correct?

no

there will be two books that will close the Dark Age: the Field Manual 3145 and the ilClan. after that they will publish other books, like Historicals or whatever they want.

Aside from the books caioaf mentioned.  There are some Historical books scheduled to come out either this year or next which are dated in early Dark Ages (Historical: Wars of the Republic Era) and two based during the Succession Wars (Early 2 and 3rd Succession War.)

i suspect that for most, taking over an existing FWL world wouldn't go over well. but if it is outside the current FWL? sure, get some buddies, liberate the **** out of the place, and petition for entry..

hey, if any devs are out there, can we get the color version of the Fidelis logo somehow already?  I've been wanting it as a banner or avatar for a while here.

please?

I just didn't see how they would refuse a simple request for the color scheme of an image they already published in B&W

You assume they did a color version. That may or may not be right.

I'm willing to bet the color is some form of grey anyways, given who the Fidelis are.

If they call a general election - just make sure you pick the right (captain) general...

Keep your eye on Camospecs; that'd be the first place such a thing would turn up.

Correct in this case. Assume that the version you see in B&W in ER:3145 looks the same in color.

Recently had a thought, the trailers covered in the TRO? It's a pity that they can't mount Void-Signature systems (TacOps, page 349 for those interested, basically it's 'Mech scale Mimetic BA Armor), something that grants a bonus based upon how little you've moved works well with something that can't move under it's own power and may be left somewhere to cause problems for somebody

Their unpowered, without a Beacon Active Probe, no one going detect it under the standard rules most of the time.  So if its packing an Improved Heavy Gauss and parked in the light woods.  *Bang!* is all the detection notice they'll be getting.

I wonder if there will be more unusual units like the Gun Trailers in remaining TRO releases.  Lyrans aren't know for being sneaky. *Unless its Mobile Structure disguise as a hill.....with lots of guns.*

They are not unpowered, they all have a rated 10 engine in them.
One of them even mounts stealth armor and ecm.

They could shutdown while someone goes by, like normal battlemech/combat vehicles right?

That's debatable, but let's face it; some folks gave them a pass because they were big and claimed to be Scottish.

Simply not true.
The front page hasn't been updated, but the product page has been there for days now: http://bg.battletech.com/?post_type=wpsc-product&p=5096
You simply have to look at the recent releases page to see it.
