this was a hit for me, i really enjoyed it
"Warriors, not war machines, are the backbone of the Hell's Horses. While others worship the BattleMech as the ultimate weapon, the men and women of this Clan see even this awesome piece of technology as the tool it is. We have held to this philosophy since the days of our first Khan, who knew that the value of the common soldier far outstripped the brute force of the BattleMech. It is one reason our Clan possesses fewer mechs than most, and has led many to underestimate our fierceness and courage. Our survival against all challengers when others have fallen proves the folly of such arrogance, and testifies to the wisdom of our founders."

Yeah, this was a good one and my first BattleCorps story to boot! I wonder what the deal was with that creepy base and those "mercenaries".

Definitely one of the better portrayals of Clan culture. I normally can't take the Clans serious, but here they don't come off as shallow antagonist jerks for a change. An amazingly good story, and the author's debut story on BC no less! O0
