Looking for an online rpg game
« on: 18 December 2017, 19:25:14 »
Hiya all! I am finding my way back into battletech, and was hoping to find an atow campaign to join. I am still  familiarizing myself with the newest rules. I am in the eastern time zone, but don't have a Mic if that matters. In the meantime, I will keep reading up (the inner sphere changed ALOT) and goofing around on megamek.
Missiles, how do they work? (Seriously, guided bottle rockets?)

If I ever get my play by post game back off the ground, I'll certainly keep you in mind!  Sadly, that's not very likely any time soon...

If there is something I have in spades, it is time. ^.^ I appreciate the good thoughts, and I'll be around.

Excellent... if you're interested in reading up on the campaign, a good place to start is the TO&E.  If that looks interesting to you, PM me your e-mail address, and I'll shoot you the rough (VERY rough) draft of everything that's gone before.  The game itself disappeared in the last board crash, but I was able to save most of the posts, and have been slowly smoothing them since.

The game's not actually running at the moment, but I'm more than willing to share the story so far via e-mail (it's pretty big, and still too rough to post publicly, I think).  I just remembered that I posted an excerpt in fan fiction (by accident... someone asked a question in General Discussion about "smoking hot dust offs", and the mods moved it to fan fiction).  Here's the link.

The only link I haven't provided above is for my spreadsheet, which is here.  I sent you a PM asking for your e-mail, and also forwarded a bunch of files to McSlayer...

Would you consider RPing in an AU set in the 3096 era?

Battletech Mercenaries is a forum based RPG that sees mercenary units picking up contracts that range from those that impact major inter-realm wars to as simple as pirate hunting and training cadre.

While it used to be where members have to sign up, or create Merc Units (MU) with a minimal of 4 active members, we now allow for Single Member Units. MUs basically earn cash and salvage through picking up and writing contracts on offer. If you're a fan of the Clans, there are also Clan units to join as well, though they obviously are not mercenaries.

Check out the above links to the website and forums, and do not hesitate to drop me a PM if you wish to find out more.

Good news!  I've heard from one of my old players, so things are looking more likely to get back off the ground... :)

Found an old thread with a few posts (literally a few): http://bg.battletech.com/forums/index.php?topic=426.msg213059#msg213059

There are a couple of name mix ups, but the story largely tracks the outline I've provided.

More good news... I've heard from three of my old players now, and am working on getting their characters up to speed.  McSlayer's character is done, and I think I'll be ready for a re-launch in the next week or two...

And I'm rocking and rolling through the history! 100+ is a lot, but I'm determined to get this done. :)

Woo!  I just heard from Failure16 (who contributed at least as much writing as I did as the GM), and he's in!  That makes six!  O0

Well if ya got this off ground I wouldn't mind joining and learning. I'm new to the battletech franchise but have quickly fallen in love with it.

It is indeed off the ground... PM me your e-mail address, and I can send you some of the background.  The rest is linked on the forum at the top of that discussion thread...
