Nine Star Stories
« on: 02 September 2017, 22:28:31 »
Greetings everyone!

I had some questions regarding the Fronc Reaches but seeing as I couldn't find a thread... here is one. Everyone interested in being a Colonial Marshal and getting a badge for your mech is welcome.

On to the questions - considering running something in the Dark Age and I noted that there isn't a random table for the Fronc Reaches in the Field Manual 3145. Does anyone have any recommendation on mechs that would be found in the Fronc Reaches at that time? Should I just use FM 3085 as a basis? The only mention I get is that by that time period the Fronc Reach can make Wasps, Stingers, Locusts, Clints, Toros, Riflemen and Hunchbacks on its own.

I would use the regular Periphery table but I note that back in 3085 the Fronc Reach table was heavily influenced by having the Taurians, Cappies and Canopans all trading with them. Was that trade still a continuing thing later on?

There is a Master unit list for battletech, you can probably find mechs under the periphery general list.
You can look on Sarna for production of Detroit.
I believe the produced Marshalls, Ostroc, Eyleuka, Duan Gung, Anubis, Stingers and Wasps.
Just look up MUL Battletech on google for the site.
I wish I could get a good grip on reality, then I would choke it.

Thanks for the response - the MUL will certainly be useful.

I also did note, on looking further, that the Canopians apparently gave a small tithe from the Detroit plant to the Fronc Reaches - unknown how long that lasted.

I am aware that the Fronc Reaches would later on use the general Periphery table - I'm just looking for any mechs that would be especially relevant to the Fronc Reaches compared to other states.

Acording to FM:3145, they are producing introtech Clints, Hunchbacks, Riflemans, Locusts, Wasps, Stingers, retrotech Toros and the armed industrimech Raider. Also Vedettes and Hertzers.
Bienheureux vous qui pleurez maintenant car vous serez dans la joie
Bienheureux si les Hommes vous haïssent
S'ils vous frappent d'exclusion
Et s'ils insultent et proscrivent votre nom comme un blâme
A cause du fils de l'autre
Et tressaillez d'allégresse
Car votre récompense
Sera grande dans le cieeeeeeel

Yep - I did some looking and I can sort of guess for myself that based on 3085 and what they had most commonly, a good shortlist for most common Fronc Reaches mechs would be something as follows.

Anubis
Stinger
Wasp
Locust
Commando
Toro
--
Marshal
Hunchback
Clint
Vindicator
Griffin
Raider
--
Ostroc
Rifleman
Thunderbolt
Warhammer
Archer
Cataphract
--
Stalkers
Longbows

It seemed like an appropriate name. :)

In any event - does anyone know if there were any stories or such written featuring the Fronc Reaches? Or where is the best place to go to look for information on them?

The Anubis is mentioned as being a favorite of the Colonial Marshals! Cant explain why I like that little mech so much, but I do the 5Y fun to run.

I think there was one story/serial about Colonial Marshals, but I'm not sure.

Threadomancy!!!

Regarding the Fronc Reaches, any novels featuring them? The final reference was not answered, and I am unsure if anything on them has been published in the last 2 years. :)

The Marshal Way was a serial on BattleCorps. It was about Colonial Marshals. http://www.sarna.net/wiki/The_Marshal_Way

The new Spotlight On: Holt's Hilltoppers notes that they moved to the Reaches before the Jihad and stayed there.

There is also the Turning Points: Fronc Reaches and Touring the Stars: Herotitus is coming soon.
