Alright Folks, I'm looking for a group of adventurous folks who have time and patience to run in an RPG. I'll get the basic premise up by tomorrow afternoon. Unfortunately I haven't had time to get it all worked out. Basic gist is mid 3050s mercs against pirates is your first mission. I want some definite takers.

Also, I'm looking to relocate my firebase up here in Reno. My local store has been overrun by Children of the Poke corn and Magic the Money Pit players long enough that I need a less crowded place to run.  Anyhow, if you're a local, shout out and let me know via PM.

Cool....  O0

PM me some of your preferences on Mechs, factions and the like. I can very easily run this online if I can't get any "locals"  8)

Depending on which side of the Inner Sphere you're talking, I might be interested in play by post if you go that route...

Any word on going play by post?  Also, any options aside from 'mechs?  Like say, a Ferret with a Recon Camera?

Of Course

That was kind of the idea.  I already have a Pilot for the Commando. In regard to  light Recon. Hmm... You'd have to sell me on it. Even the Silver Eagles started with 1 Ferret and 3 mechs and and a LAM.

Tanks for the memories.  :D

No, seriously. Tanks, could possibly be justified as the unit grows. From the outset however, you're starting off small just like every other unit not funded by a House Lord.  #P

Now, I have a lot of writing to do to get the opening scenario finished, however, I do have it almost done. I start a new job on Monday, but that won't get in the way of this getting up off the ground. I am working to encourange my 16 year old to get his account created so we can get him in the game too.  O:-) (He's the Commando pilot I was talking about crazy Street Rat)

I guess I can join in on this little online-only RPG, but don't expect this to be easy since I am good at monkey wrench throwing and putting little bumps in the road of life.  :P

From the list given I will take the ASN-21. No harm in taking the well defended killer for a spin.  >:D

I'd be willing to join, if you're still looking for players.

I'll take the JagerMech, because I know I won't be competing with anyone for that one. :)

That depends entirely on her answer to my question about a Ferret with a Recon Camera (I have an unnatural love for AC/2s)...  >:D

I've been looking into organizing a game on Discord.  I've had the book since beta (pdf, and now dead tree format).  I've been dying to learn the system, especially game mastering it for people.  But I'd also like to be a player to figure things out.  I've only been creating characters with life paths to just come up with different results.  So far my favorite was a Hansa accountant.

I would also love to get involved if you still have room for another player. I haven't played any of the Mechwarrior RPGs, but I've been familiar with the tabletop and PC games for quite a while. I'm in the Central Time Zone.

P.S. I know they're not on the list but would you be willing to let me pilot a King Crab KGC-000 or a Highlander HGN-732b? If not, I'll go for the Atlas. :)

Not going to lie I'm completely new to battletech and all that it entails but I am enthralled by it at the moment. I would love to eventually hop into a game.

It's a pretty awesome universe. If you aren't aware of it yet, Sarna.net is the main BattleTech wiki where you can learn of the basic lore. Also, if you have a Windows PC, Mechwarrior 4 Mercenaries by MekTek Studios can be downloaded for free and is an awesome game. Unfortunately, it's a little hard to find these days. Mechwarrior Online is a decent game, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who is new to the universe, because its probably the weakest game in the series and still has multiple issues that need to be worked out.

Awesome... No pun intended...

All right fellas. Now that my new...new job is started. Argh this has been a fun month and a half... I can settle down and get things really started. I will have an opening scenario up by the middle of next week. Likely over the weekend. I'll have your 'Mech assignments fully listed out, and all. The Ferret is good. You'll all see that it works out well.


Thank you all for your patience.  >:D

Glad to hear it!  One Ferret pilot will be generated in AToW this weekend (courtesy of my spreadsheet), but probably after I talk to my boss tomorrow afternoon...

So... how many points in Custom Vehicle do I need to slap a Recon Camera into a Ferret?  ::)

I ask because if I need the whole 400 XP, I'm also putting a fusion engine, Jet Booster and Mast Mount into that thing with Fractional Accounting...

Hey guys.

So here is an update on what is going on with this thread. My mom, McKenna, is having computer troubles and has been put out of action for a while now. She is having a very good IT specialist look into it, but progress will be slow.  :-\

Sorry for the inconvinience.  :(

So...at the risk of necro'ing a very dead thread - I went ahead and moved forward with this concept in that I resurrected a long-running 3065-era BBS-based roleplay I'd created years ago which spanned two sites, LEGIONNAIRES (2004 forum) and LEGIONNAIRES (2004 - 2009 forum) in the form of a 3028-era prequel.

The new forum, simply titled 'MercNet,' is an open world, with the player characters so far each doing their own thing in the Inner Sphere just after the start of the Fourth Succession War. The main units at this juncture are three different mercenary groups and a free agent who are each chasing a few different objectives. There's no one overarching storyline thus far, although it would be really interesting to get a couple of players aligned with one or more of the mercenary groups that are currently operating in the universe. The current players are:

  • Aegis Division, run by Charles Maxwell, which is headed out to Kimball II to help House Steiner re-capture the Ceres Metals factory as part of Operation GÖTTERDÄMMERUNG.
  • The Crayven Corporation, run by William Kauffman, which is headed out to Gan Singh on a transport mission to drop Jackson McKenna onto the world in search of a Star League cache.
  • Scorched Earth, run by Octavia Incendio, which is presently on shore leave on Rasalhague.
  • Orlex Jaeger, who is on Blue Sava, attempting to re-claim his stolen BattleMech.

We'd love to have any and all players join us who'd enjoy being part of an open-world RPG. If you'd like to jump in, please feel free to pop in, create an account, say hi in our Messaging Center, check out some of our Dossiers, and even stake your claim in the Universe. We'd love to have you join us! Every contribution enriches the game universe in incredible and immersive ways.

Please don't hesitate to message me if you have any questions or suggestions. See you out there!

We probably can cross-post. I've done so before. In either case, I can certainly give a shout if we start a branch here.

Great!  So I'm leaning toward a veteran of Anton's Revolt who went mercenary vice taking a chance with the treason trials.  I figure they washed up on Galatea sometime before 3020, and probably hired on with the FedSuns for some payback against the CapCon during the 4SW.  Looking at Campaign Operations, I think a 10M or 20M starting budget would yield a decent sized unit (one 'mech lance, a couple of platoons of infantry/AsTechs, transport and recovery vehicles, etc.).  Should I be looking at a DropShip, or is transport available otherwise?
