Quote
Any able commander can win a single battle, but only true leaders with skill, guts, and vision can win a war. Do you have what it takes to change the course of the Succession Wars and add your name to the annals of history?

Building off of the BattleTech Beginner Box and BattleTech: A Game of Armored Combat, Chaos Campaign: Succession Wars provides rules for selecting a force and embarking on a planetary assault mini-campaign, as well as tools to create campaigns of your own.

The scenarios included with those boxed sets are intended as one-off battles with no impact on the next encounter. This module introduces Chaos Campaign play, which offers consequences between individual missions, a reason to chase down specific objectives while preserving your troops, and ways to improve your force as you progress.

Pretty slim little volume. Should fit in the box with the rest of the contents

I'll definitely have to add this to my list of stuff to buy... it's going to be a bit after the Kickstarter, though...

The term is 'gateway drug'. :)

For players who have dipped their toes into Battletech with the AGoAC box, this is a cheap extra to draw them further in. You and I aren't the target audience, we're already off the deep end. >:D

I'm seriously considering the PoD option here. A hardcopy price below 10$ is always very tempting...

Totally biased, but I think it's a pretty nice book in POD (and full color!).

I fully intend to get the PoD version, but I might wait until a couple more books are out, to spread shipping costs out.

Got mine and I think it's a pretty sweet little book.  Good print quality as well. :thumbsup:
