Glad to be back.  Hell, I'm just glad to have an aimag to come back to.

ClarkeMarek, Wellspring and Bergie are still out touring the stars. But we keep the lights on in the Khanate for them and the laborers hard at work in the manufacturing plant so that they'll have something to sell when they return.

Yeah, I thought so too.  And unlike other more barbaric Clans, we don't need scads of planets.  We just cherrypick the right planets, and let our "customers" keep their average dustballs so they'll have income we can work with.

They'll be back.  Waiting for the ilClan wasn't easy on a lot of fans.  The Wars of Reaving showed us much of what could be done with a very well-established game universe like this one, and kept us on the edge of our seats posting for years.  I have no doubt it can do it again with the right product. 

We need to name our fan aimag/khanate!

I was thinking that too. We need a name for the BattleTech forum Sea Fox family... and to batten the hatches in case the upcoming products make us all grognards that can only play from Operation Klondike to 3145.

What about Deathstrike Khanate? It was the award that Alpha Galaxy used to hand out and then became the award for getting three times your mechs tonnage in kills?

It doesn't really make us sound like a merry band of Sea Fox friends though. So maybe we should go with Diamond Khanate.

I could go with that.

But maybe add something of a nod to the fox side of things as well as the shark side.  If we can think of something that fits.  Maybe JKL will have an idea to add.

edit...  Don't hate me for this...  Diamond Furball Khanate lol

I actually thought it was the Diamond Shark part of things that needed the nod. After all, we are Sea Foxes.

True.  As Sea Foxes, we're secure in our self esteem and knowledge.  The Diamond Shark side of things embraced ostentatious display much more readily.

I'm not sure how long you've been around on the forums, though you have a thousand posts. Never take anything JKlantern says seriously unless it's about food.

We like nice looking planets.  With lots of harjel.  And germanium helps too.

Considering the general silliness of Diamond Khanate I present you with file footage of our scientist caste. Whether we will prove to be dezgra or written into the remembrance only time will tell.

For maximum inclusiveness I recommend we gank Tiburon Khanate's Gamma Emblem for Diamond Khanate.

They were!

I wonder how Skate Khanate's doing explaining that they weren't the ones that were doing the raiding and fighting. Not that the people Skate Khanate has dealt with weren't already starting fights.

One in what's left of the Draconis March, one on the Periphery March near the Ravens, and one in the Capellan March, I think.


I'd really hate to be Julian when those nobles come calling.
Noble: "You did WHAT with my ancestral home land?"
Robogigavictor: "I gave it to the Seafoxes."
Noble: "And WHY did you do this? We're fighting against the clanners. We were BETRAYED by the clanners and you just gave my world to them. I'd like an answer."
Robogigavictor: "It was MY world and I chose to do with it as I saw fit!"
Noble: "If that's the case, then to Sian with you, I'm gone. Good luck with the Capellans and the Combine."
Robogigavictor: "But it's your sworn duty to defend the Federated Suns! It's in the oath you took as a noble!"
Noble: "And you just relieved me of that oath. Take care."

They're labelled on the 3151 map.  They're worlds that appear to have no pre-existing importance, but given their locations at the three corners of Davion controlled space they were most probably settled upon due to their location.  If the inner sphere were to settle down anytime soon, those would be decent trading posts close to all of Davion's neighbors.

The fluff says they were chosen after a lot of thought about their value on trade routes.

Hean is within two jumps of Terra though.

Alta Vista is just south of the Raven Alliance.

Brusett is on the edge of the Taurian Concordat.

Decoy, the Federated Suns were largely spared of any difficulties in the Clan Invasion. It was the Lyran Alliance that was (and continues to be) gobbled up...

on the other hand the Snow Ravens did betray the Suns by aiding the Draconis Combine. Though if it weren't for the Davions heinous military losses that was kind of doing them a solid.

You know Shark Foxes and planetary systems.

No one thought Twycross was important, either!  We get great value from what other people throw away.

But at the least, these will be great trading posts and logistical centers for further expansion rimward and spinward. 

And we're close to the Ravens again.  We have mixed history with them, considering what they tried to do to the poor little sea fox population on Strana Mechty.  But like the Warden Clan Sourcebook hints: the Ravens may dig up dirt to use against everyone else, but the Shark Foxes always dig up the best dirt, and it's all over the Ravens.  They can't do anything without us knowing.  So we use that, and make them pay through the nose for harjel.

Hahahahahahahaahahahaha


Bargained Well and Done used to mean something. It doesn't anymore.
You don't get it. The Snow Ravens damaged the Clans as a whole in what they did. When a Clansman made a deal, you could take it to the (figurative) bank that it would be upheld to the letter, if not the spirit of the agreement. Now...
