IMHO, the Nightlord would have been too large. The Kindraa were about the size of one Galaxy, and each kindraa was spread out to cover their territory. If there were a smaller ship that carried only a cluster's worth of troops that would have been great for them.

I am at a loss as to what ship that would be.... I am building a mick kreese kindraa which is very aero focused. They control a Potemkin and a Lola iii I believe besides a nightlord what could lug around a boat load of fighters, marines and ground pounders? This kindraa specializes in naval war

York supports 50 fighters, with two hard points. So mounting one Overlord and Sassanid a would be a great way to move an advance cluster of a Kindraa.

The other option is to "find" and upgrade an old Robinson. Though I have the feeling that non made it with the exodus fleet. Too bad, they have some real potential.

I love me a York! And I had never really thought of the Robinson before. that is a very cool suggestion do the clans have anything that functions in that way?

Not to my knowledge, maybe the warship thread it has a list of all known warships.

Could some one remind me what the relations were between the crusader kindraa and the snow ravens?

Re read the crusader FM manual and while it teases a feud between the two aero focused kindraa ( mick kreese for the crusaders and beyl grant for the wardens) nothing major came off it in cannon.

However if one kindraa trailed for a warship from the other could you also add stipulations like “ no attempts to reclaim it for 15 years” ?

How could you stop something like that from spiraling into an endless series to of take backs?

Fredasa and a old SLDFiE Lee Dropper in Kindraa Matila-Carrol colors!

2) There's no information on which Kindraas did and didn't use ProtoMechs. I thinkl it's fiar to say that they all did however

Mattila-Carrol did " By 3069 the Kindraa had added almost two clusters worth of ProtoMechs to their forces and in a deal with Clan Coyote added several new warriors straight from the Coyote Sibkos."

~ Sarna.net

Only reason I'm posting this is I have in my mind sight, at very least a Star's worth of Fire Mandrill survivors, inhabitants of ex-Blood Spirits Zeta Galaxy, on Tokasha! Current home of Clan Stone Lions... far fetched and  pipe dream, quiaff?

Also 20 Aerofighters leading in Command, 10 Mechs in a Binary, 20 Assault class Vehicles in a Binary and a full Star of 25 Protomechs would be what makes this Kindraa work, circa 3067 or so..

I dig the robinson but what about the comitus clan jump ship? Would that fit the bill?

Go ahead and add it. There's not much info on the Fire Mandrills for some reason, but you won't find a clan with the kind of variety and RP'ing potential that the Mandrills have. Compared to the vanilla popular clans building and fleshing out the different Kindraa is probably the most fun I've had in BT since they're so different. Seems most clans have a paper stamp approach to their stars and galaxies. Nowadays the IS clans, (if you even can call them clans), are basically IS with some clan Mechs. Its attack of the clones in BT! Boring!

But you won't really find that with the Mandrills. When you read the entries for the Kindraa notice the particular flavor each one has. How different each Kindraa's assets are in Mech, Elemental, and Aerospace forces. Once a Mandrill, always a Mandrill. We shall return because nobody can outfight us or deal with us haha. So add that jump ship and keep doing your thing.

I have been so intrigued by the robinson since you mentioned it! Also it apparently strongly influenced this ships design: http://www.sarna.net/wiki/Kyushu

Which the clans would have seen in action.

Do the clans already have a ship similar to these? Seems ideal for the mandrills

Nightlord: same but bigger.

That was my first thought as it could act as a mobile base for the entire kindraa and I feel it also jived with the non stop one up manship that I feel the kindraa would have. But would they buy, borrow or steal it?....

Steal it.  No declare a Trial of Possession for it I'd be aiming for the Dark Asp, no one likes the Vipers.  The Scorpions Atropos would be my second choice

Everyone did hate the vipers  to a greater or lesser extent! But specifically what if any beef did the vipers have with the various kindraa?

Seeking suggestions for warship names. Canon mandrill ships tend towards flame or anger related ones such as: rancor and fireeater

Here are some off the top of my head:

Due to their aero bias and fairly weak ground game I would think kindraa mick kreese would have been all about the protomech.

Which protos would be good to support a strong air wing?

Much like the Ravens and the Sharks make me wish I hadn't loaned out the Warden Clans FM years ago, the Fire Mandrills are one of the main forces that make me wish I hadn't loaned out the Crusader Clans book (to the same person).  I kinda think of them as the Battletech equivalent to the Warhammer 40K Orks.  And I say that as a fan of the greeniez.

I scorned the mandrills for years but they are so darn versatile and wacky I love them now. I am building up a mick kreese Force

Keeping the Mandril flame alive, I see.  Too bad they couldn't keep their shit together, it would have been fun to have them in Revival.

I know.., their death seemed inevitable unless a major kindraa held itself apart from
The constant internal battling!

Mandrill lore tends to follow this pattern:

“And due to their internal battles the mandrills enter the next battle weakened and then lost. However they gave a good account of themselves”

Even when there was finally named a Mandril IlKhan for five minutes, it served to weaken them in the end as their strongest kindraa was destroyed.

I was curious about the various kindraa capitals would look like? With their endless feuding and one up manship I wonder if each kindraa would be striving to have the biggest skyscrapers, the gaudiest statues to their founders etc?

Also would each kindraa fight to be included in the official mandrill remembrance? I gave to think many trials would have been started over a perceived slight to their kindraa in a write up
