As long as CGL is going to produce record sheets, they should make them available when the TROs are released.  Seems logical. :D

I like the record sheets on PDF. We can use what we need and not need a whole book. Besides it's cheaper and easy to carry.

Finally got my copy of Dragoons novel. Im excited to read it as soon im done with Bonfire of Worlds!

I saw over the weekend TRO Clan Invasion in print at store i goto. I think they bought too many, like 5 copies. I was taken back by 40 dollar price tag. I hope they get sales of the book as i was mentioning to new players the book was in.

I remember reading some months ago that the neoprene maps were supposed to hit retail stores in October.  Is that still on track?

Trying again:  Any update on the neoprene maps that were tentatively scheduled to hit retail in October?

--Thanks to the brisk sales and enthusiasm for the recent series of BattleMats, we’re pleased to announce that a full re-order of all four previously-released mats has been placed. They will be available in the Catalyst Game Labs store and in retail stores by October.

Just a quick questions on new novels.

I was talking with a friend who like me has taken a brake from the game for a while.   He mentioned seeing a blog by Pardoe, and that there would be future novels written. Has anybody seen possible titles ?  (I know release dates are not given, just curious what I should possibly be looking for..)  I figured if anyone knew, it would be on the new/upcoming releases thread.

Has anybody seen possible titles ?  (I know release dates are not given, just curious what I should possibly be looking for..)  I figured if anyone knew, it would be on the new/upcoming releases thread.

Two brand-new novels have come out this year - Forever Faithful by Blaine Pardoe and Iron Dawn by Jennifer Brozeck.  There's another new novel out soon about the Northwind Highlanders.  They've also published A Bonfire of Worlds by Stephen Mohan- the final MechWarrior Dark Age novel which was only available digital until now.   Another original novel called Embers of War by Jason Schmetzer was published in 2015.

As well as that a number of compilations of novellas, Battlecorps serials and other bits have been published as fix-up books - The Nellus Academy Incident by Jennifer Brozeck, Kell Hounds Ascendant by Michael Stackpole, Redemption Rift by Jason Schemetzer and Betrayal of Ideals by Blaine Pardoe, and the novellas A Splinter of Hope by Phil Lee and The Anvil by Blaine Pardoe have a combined print edition.  BattleCorps anthology 7 and a reprint of 6 were recently released, as well as an anthology of original stories called Legacy.

These are all available digitially from various websites and via Print on Demand from Amazon. A number of the original novels are on PoD as well.

According to the fulfillment company, they're tentatively supposed to arrive early next week. I've set a reminder to check back in with them then.

Any update on the relese os WWE 2019?

This week, I'm hoping. I need to get it all set up, but working on Clan Invasion box materials has been the sole priority for most of the last few weeks.

Has anybody seen possible titles ?  (I know release dates are not given, just curious what I should possibly be looking for..)

More "hoping," but I'm hoping to get a better fix on upcoming fiction releases as part of a general overhaul of the upcoming products page in the near future (i.e. the month of November, most likely).

Some good news - I finally saw, and was able to pick up a copy of the 2019/35th Tech Manual with the retro cover in an LGS last weekend. Still have not seen the Clan Invasion Tech Readout in the wild yet, though...

Must be nice. The store in question for me had just the recent box sets, Total Warfare, Battlemech Manual, Alpha Strike, and the Tech Manual. It's the only store within two hours of me that has anything, other than the Beginner Box being available at the local B&N. Still better than nothing...hopefully the Kickstarter and having some stock on shelf spurs some more sales.

FLGS has Clan Invasion listed at the distributor level, so they ordered one for me 2.5 weeks ago but have received nothing yet.  They don't know why.

I’ve also seen TRO: Clan Invasion at the FLGS level, from someone who’d previously been rather skeptical of carrying any Battletech at all.

So: win!

I *believe* TRO Clan Invasion is between printings, so you *may* be caught in the gap between them.  Of course, it being such a recent release there's still going to be "old" stock out there, but trying to get it from the distributor you might run into supply issues.  There will be an errata-corrected reprint at some point: I've already submitted the corrections.

Depending where you are, it could be the distributor itself. I AM NO EXPERT. Some of them are trying stock what they knows will sell. My old FLG had stupid amounts of difficulty trying get product in from 2 out 3 major distributor get Battletech stuff in.  Not so much minis, but the Catalyst stuff.  I am not surprised given how you have online distributors competing with older variety.

Now Available – Worldwide Event 2019: Requiem for a Blue Star

The complete scenario for the 2019 Worldwide Event, Requiem for a Blue Star, is now available as a FREE PDF from the Catalyst Game Labs store.

Quote
After 200 years of being lost to the Inner Sphere the remains of 295th BattleMech Division was discovered in 3021. The fate of a lost Star League division could be penciled in. But for ComStar, this was not welcome news. The division was only a few jumps beyond the Inner Sphere, too far to bring the equipment back covertly, but close enough to the Lyran Commonwealth and especially the Draconis Combine to be a potential source for them. So ComStar hid them, and for 130 years the secret remained just that.

But people talk and secrets leak.

Requiem for a Blue Star was the 2019 BattleTech Worldwide Event depicting the clash between Bartlett’s Boxers and La Grande Armée. This PDF-only product includes the Total Warfare and Alpha Strike scenarios as well as the final results of the event.
