Wow! This is incredible stuff!

I have to say that I am most excited for TRO: Golden Century and "Irregulars". One can only hope that this will include the content from the old "IrTech" they were going to do! I will find out soon!

I do hope that more of the fiction becomes POD as well; especially the new stuff.
Epitaph on an Army of Mercenaries

These, in the day when heaven was falling,      Their shoulders held the sky suspended;
The hour when earth's foundations fled,         They stood, and earth's foundations stay;
Followed their mercenary calling,               What God abandoned, these defended,
And took their wages, and are dead.             And saved the sum of things for pay.
     
A.E. Housman

Actually, the original title was mid-typed. What it is actually called is the “MechCommander’s Hand” book.

So, it is a book about what the hand of a MechCommander is like and does.

 :D ;D :P

pssst you didn't hear it from me, it's actually a crossover with old star wars extended universe introducing a blue skinned alien race. ;)

Whats the Mechcommander's Handbook?

I say this without even having cracked open Mechwarrior: Destiny to see if such a product would be required, but I'm betting a DMG equivalent for Mechwarrior: Destiny.

Good news is the lab boys say the symptoms of asbestos poisoning show an immediate latency of 44.6 years. So if you're thirty or over you're laughing. Worst case scenario you miss out on a few rounds of canasta, plus you've forwarded the cause of science by three centuries. I punch those numbers into my calculator, it makes a happy face.

Since MechCommander was a tactical game where one commands multiple 'Mechs, i'd guess Mechcommander's Handbook has stuff for either larger scale games (unlikely, since that's pretty niche stuff and already covered in StratOps, and Alpha Strike does mid-scales reasonably), or perhaps some kind scenario-making book.
Unless it is some kind of fluff and sourcebook (like Field Manuals)? Some kind of rulebook seems more likely though.

Where is all this stuff going to be available? Last time I tried to buy stuff from the store they took my money, wouldn't even let me look at the selection and never answered my emails. There are a couple of items I'm interested in, but I won't put up with that nonsense twice.

They’ll be on drivethrurpg

Yeah, after I never got my BattleCorps library back I viewed things the same way.  I buy from DriveThruRPG for digital and will buy physical items like the shirts & now puzzle from the CGL store.

Still wish they would do a one mech teaser of the RG:i so we could have a taste as well as see the format!

Are the XTROs replaced by TROs now?

This is true . . . we got confirmation on roughly half a dozen mechs, some sizes, some weapons, some armor . . . besides, it slips out tomorrow.  Just a bit longer.

Both of these are much larger than XTROs so I don’t think they fall into the same column.

That said I think the XTRO series has largely run its course. Primitives 5 was the last one we got was primitives v5 in 2016. I think the RecGuides are more of a replacement for the series

Ish?

No XTROs are currently on the drawing board, I can tell you that.

It was just about observation considering Irregulartech and Golden Century were on the TBA XTRO list, but I'm happy regardless of how they are released.

Right, that's true, they were. At some point I do vaguely recall changing the Coming Releases page to just make them "regular" TROs (though still XTRO-sized), so that should tell you something about where XTROs stand.

Tells me that they're no longer Experimental and moved up the chain to Standard! :D
