House Ma-Tsu Kai (3145)
« on: 24 December 2013, 09:21:31 »
House Ma-Tsu Kai



Formed in 2991, House Ma-Tsu Kai was known among the Order for its tactical and strategic acumen, dissecting an opponent's strategy and exploiting its weaknesses ruthlessly. Unfortunately, near the end of the Jihad they were nearly annihilated over Pleione by Blakist “pocket WarShips”, and only a handful were able to retreat and withdraw back to their monastery on Bithinia. Among the dead was the House Leader, Shiao-zhang Jasmine Liu, known within the unit as Liu-Tsu and one of the foremost strategic minds in the Confederation. Her loss crippled the Warrior House for nearly two generations; while they continued to train new aspirants, they could never accrue enough to maintain a standing force akin to the other Warrior Houses. When they finally managed to form a full battalion in 3109, they were authorized to rejoin the CCAF rolls...only to be almost completely wiped out the following year on Kurragin by an RAF task force that included then-Captain Jonah Levin, in a battle that resulted in his induction into the Knights of the Republic (and thus put him on the path to his eventual ascent to Exarch of the Republic).

Despite these setbacks, House Ma-Tsu Kai once again returned to training new aspirants on Bithinia. In 3130 they received an enormous boon in the form of a noble patron: Mandrinn Nikolai Jackson, newly-minted CEO of Bithinian Ballistics and one of the richest men in the Confederation, had been enthralled with tales of House Ma-Tsu Kai ever since he was a boy. Wishing both to restore the Warrior House to its former glory and curry favor with Chancellor Daoshen Liao, he contacted both Gang-shiao-zhang Jiang Hui and Ma-Tsu Kai House Master Damien Liu and offered to supply them with the funds for whatever equipment needed if they could supply the personnel. Mandrinn Jackson spent years combing the Confederation for applicants while buying up BattleMechs, tanks and battle armor to outfit House Ma-Tsu Kai to the same standard as the other Warrior Houses. By late 3144 they were fully manned and equipped, and ready to take the field once more.

OFFICERS
Shiao-zhang Damien Liu is the grandson of legendary House Master Jasmine Liu. Before her death, Jasmine Liu had given birth to a son, Brandon, who per Warrior House policy was adopted by a noble family, House Khun Lo, immediately after birth. Brandon Khun Lo would go on to become the CO of the Bithinia Home Guard. When his own son Damien was old enough, he told him of his heritage and the tales of his grandmother. At the age of twelve, Damien petitioned to join House Ma-Tsu Kai, which was still rebuilding from their decimation at Kurrigan and thus eager to accept him. Initially Damien did not reveal his heritage, not wanting to be given any favoritism by his sifu or the other House acolytes. It was not until he achieved the rank of Shiao-zhang of House Ma-Tsu Kai in 3129 that he revealed his true identity. Possessed of the same keen mind as his grandmother, Damien Liu has turned the reborn Warrior House into a force to be reckoned with.

TACTICS
Just like the old Warrior House, the resurrected House Ma-Tsu Kai prefers to win the battle before they ever enter the battlefield. Special forces assaults, usually led by the chameleon-like Ying Long and Shen Long battlesuits and backed by VTOLs and artillery, are used to neutralize enemy command and control assets. Precise reconnaissance to locate large enemy formations is followed by the deployment of heavy armor and battlesuits to pin them in place while the Warrior House's more mobile 'Mech forces envelop and crush them. Second Battalion has two full 'Mech lances dedicated to indirect fire tactics, and those lances are trained specifically to deliver fire support with pinpoint accuracy.

In defense of the Clan 'Mechs, I only used those that appeared on either the Capellan RATs in FM 3145 or on the MUL.

well, with the Men Shen on the Sea Fox RATs, I figure its not unlikely there's been some trading going on there.

In defense of the Clan 'Mechs, I only used those that appeared on either the Capellan RATs in FM 3145 or on the MUL.

That's what I thought. Personally, I've associated the Wammy IIC with the CCAF for nearly a decade for various silly reasons.

Oh, is that what happened to them? There was a reference in FM 3145 indicating that the House was destroyed on Kurragin in 3110, but it was never detailed beyond that in the sourcebooks; given Kurragin's proximity to Oriente, I figured their destruction had been at the hands of an Oriente unit. Any chance you'd be willing to PM me a detailed summary of the related events in Scorpion Jar (since I don't own any DA novels)?

I'll flick something across - Levin basically stands them down with his militia unit

Ok, the main post is finally fully updated. Since the damn character limits meant I couldn't fit all the crew and squaddie names like I originally wanted to (and still have in my MM MULs and master doc), I just listed the tank/squad commander rather than the entire crew/squad.

Bah! Those cannon fodder types don't count - most of them will suffer from FNG symptoms in the first engagement anyway.

So... Don't warrior houses typically keep to one battalion of mechs and one battalion of infantry/BA with limited aero support.
Or does this change in FM: 3145? If so, it's interesting To see the houses expand so large

Yes, in FM 3145 the Warrior Houses are all expanded to two augmented 'Mech battalions and two augmented tank battalions apiece.

Importance: Industrial

Settled in the early 27th century by a consortium of corporate interests out of the Capellan Confederation, Carbonis was only marginally habitable when it was initially discovered. A young planet close to its star, tectonic activity had not yet forced apart the supercontinent that comprised the majority of its land. This continent, which the settlers dubbed Vassa, possessed a thin, tropical strip (no more than four hundred kilometers at its widest) around most of its coast, with vast and arid wastelands making up most of the interior. Industrial concerns quickly sprouted up along the coastal regions; the lack of Confederation oversight allowed local industry to dump enormous amounts of toxic waste in the Vassan deserts, far from any populated area. The lack of a moon left Carbonis with almost no tidal system, and so the coastal areas were largely swampy, fetid wetlands for the first few decades of settlement. However, Star League investment and technology allowed the installation of a vast network of tide-generating machinery that transformed the coasts into picturesque beaches by the outset of the 28th century. Soon Carbonis had a tourism industry to rival its manufacturing, and more wealth came when Irian headquartered IMB Systems (their consumer electronics branch) and their production facilities just outside of the bustling capital of Budapest. Thanks to the peace between Houses Marik and Liao under the auspices of the Star League, many nobles from nearby Oriente and Vanra built beach homes on Carbonis; Giacomo Orloff, Duke-in-Exile of Vanra during the mid-2800s, famously had a palatial estate built on the cliffs that overlooked Budapest.

Unfortunately, when the Star League fell and the First Succession War began, Carbonis was captured by the 1st Oriente Hussars, looking to prevent Capellan counter-attacks from rimward space against an Orloff task force at Vanra. In their haste to crush the local Capellan garrison before they could alert other CCAF forces in the region, the Hussars used tactical nuclear weapons against their coastal bases. Tens of thousands were killed and massive economic damage was wrought by the collateral damage these weapons produced. As the Succession Wars dragged on, technological decline and Capellan raids caused most of the tidal generators to break down, and for nearly two centuries the coasts reverted back to the wetlands they had been at the settlement's founding. Its status as a vacation destination for nobility and rich tourists alike dissipated, and while Carbonis remained an important trading and industrial world, it lost much of the prominence it had possessed during the Star League.

The discovery of the Helm Core was the best thing to happen to Carbonis in almost three centuries. Among the wealth of re-discovered technologies the Core made possible were the components necessary to bring the tidal generators back online, and investment from Irian Technologies put Carbonis back on the path of ecological (and therefore economic) recovery. By the end of the Jihad, the coasts once again resembled their Star League-era state, and the long period of relative peace that followed resulted in booming profits for Carbonis' manufacturing and tourism industries, especially IMB Systems.

Like most worlds in the post-Blackout age, Carbonis' HPG has been out of commission for more than a decade. Fortunately for its natives, the planet is entirely self-sufficient, and its place on the League-Capellan border guarantees that trading fleets are still regularly seen at Carbonis' zenith and nadir points (both of which have advanced recharge stations). Since it became a part of the Oriente Protectorate during the reformation of the Free Worlds League, it has enjoyed protection from the elite 7th Oriente Hussars. In addition the Carbonis Militia, numbering two mixed regiments of tanks and infantry, is better-equipped than most planetary militias in the League; it includes two companies of battlesuits donated by Irian Technologies (who have a vested interest in maintaining the goodwill of Carbonis' populace and militia both) and a small navy centered around the CMS Giacomo Orloff, an Argo-class submersible aircraft carrier. They are well-seasoned by numerous Capellan, Regulan and pirate raids over the past decade, and have also spent a great deal of time training alongside the 7th Hussars.

Most of the populace of Carbonis is employed by either IMB Systems or the subsidiary and supporting industries around it. Most of the remainder are part of the tourism and hospitality industries; one of the constant political struggles in most cities on Carbonis is between real-estate developers and the residents whose waterfront views are blocked by their luxury high-rises. There is also a robust agricultural sector, based largely around enormous fish farms. Carbonis tuna steaks are considered some of the finest seafood in the Free Worlds League, and on many worlds fetch upwards of 150 M-bills apiece. Strong arts communities have popped up along the desert fringes at the edge of the habitable zones, and are known to ingest a local hallucinogenic fungi called yarne before undertaking "vision quests" into the wastelands beyond.

Perhaps due to their status as a point of cross-border trade, or maybe just the good weather, Carbonisians tend to be relatively affable and outgoing. The most common language on Carbonis is English, followed closely by Mandarin and Italian, and it is not uncommon for the latter two to be mixed into conversations between natives. The vast majority of Carbonisians are Buddhists; the remainder of the populace adhere largely to Catholicism or varieties of Reform Judaism. They benefit from strong primary and secondary education systems, and their universities are second only to worlds like Oriente or Atreus (again due largely to heavy investment from Irian Technologies, who need knowledgeable and capable workers to staff IMB Systems). Carbonis has a parliamentary government, with representation based on a proportional voting system and a prime minister. While nominally democratic, both the prime minister and many MPs are regularly accused of being employees of Irian Technologies in all but name, due to the large campaign contributions Irian makes to all major political candidates.

ROCK AND A HARD PLACE

Melrose Valley, Outside South Whitman
Carbonis, Oriente Protetectorate
Free Worlds League
20 January 3145


Looking to make a strong debut for the newly rebuilt Warrior House, Shiao-zhang Damien Liu led his warriors on a raid in force against Carbonis, an important trading and industrial world in the Oriente Protectorate. Guarding it were the 7th Oriente Hussars, an elite unit funded by Irian Technologies and staffed with veteran Oriente Fusilier officers pulled out of retirement, hardened ex-mercenaries and select transfers from the 1st and 2nd Oriente Hussars. Shiao-zhang Liu intended to use the 7th Hussars as a whetstone on which to sharpen his soldiers, while also gaining glory for the Chancellor and the Warrior House Order.

In the tradition of Warrior House Ma-Tsu Kai, the Shiao-zhang did not execute a straightforward raid. Instead, using a combination of merchant connections and Maskirovka agents, the entire combat arm of the Warrior House was slowly smuggled onto Carbonis over the course of four months. Hidden deep in the desert wastelands that composed inner Vassa, the primary inhabited continent on Carbonis, they managed to remain undetected until they were fully assembled and ready to strike.

On 20 January 3145, Ying-zhang Aleks Shaparov led his company, Shaparov's Sharpshooters, on a strike against a regional communications hub that would accomplish the first goal in Shiao-zhang Liu's plan: cutting off the Hussars' ability to call in the bulk of their unit from around Vassa so that the Warrior House could carve them up piecemeal. Nestled on the opposing ridges of the Melrose Valley, the sites were guarded by a mixed reinforced company of Hussars. Shaparov split his force into two equally strong demi-companies (composed of half of each lance), leading one and placing the other under Pai-zhang John Huang.

While Shaparov's force pinned down a medium 'Mech lance and cut through its support forces with relative ease, Pai-zhang Huang's force quickly found themselves in for the fight of their lives; a lance of assault 'Mechs, all sporting thick coats of hardened armor, guarded the western facility. Shaparov re-tasked the two Jinggaus in his demi-company to reinforce Huang and ordered Pai-zhang Yakutkin's (split) lance to bring down both facilities at all costs. Moving into the center of the valley with his Hellstar, Shaparov and Pai-zhang Vega laid down a hellacious barrage of supporting fire that, combined with the rest of Huang's demi-company, managed to slowly bring the near-unkillable Marik assault 'Mechs down. In the process a full lance of Warrior House 'Mechs were destroyed, but when the remaining Hussars saw their senior Lieutenant's Viking IIC burned down by a headshot from Shaparov at nearly nine hundred meters out, they broke and ran.

Victory!

BURNING DOWN THE HOUSE

Outskirts of Budapest
Carbonis, Oriente Protectorate
Free Worlds League
25 January 3145


With the destruction of the Melrose Valley C3 hub by Ying-zhang Shaparov, the second phase of the Ma-Tsu Kai plan got underway. The hole in the Leaguers' command net allowed the Warrior House to slip two augmented companies into the jungles of the inner Vassan strip, just north of the planetary capital Budapest. After five days of carefully moving into place, Ying-zhang Erwin Lefebvre's artillery opened fire on the city from hidden positions, firing dozens of Inferno-IV missiles into the warehouses and office buildings of the Szeged commercial district. This provoked an immediate response from both the Carbonis Militia and a detachment of the 7th Hussars, who moved to secure the bridges that spanned the canyon which ran along Budapest's northern edge.

As the League forces emerged from the city, Ying-zhang Tamiela Ismael's company sprang out of the canyon. Leaping right into the midst of the enemy, her 'Mechs and tanks tore into their foes as laser-guided Arrow-IV artillery missiles came whistling down into the militia ranks. When a light strike lance from the Hussars managed to end-run the Warrior House forces and assault the artillery tanks directly, the variable-speed pulse lasers mounted on their secondary turrets crippled three of the four 'Mechs in a single volley.

Within minutes what remained of the Hussars and Militia were in full retreat. The Capellans fired a few more volleys into Budapest for good measure, secured the area for a few hours to salvage what they could, and then began to withdraw to the Warrior House's hidden desert staging point. Their objective had been achieved: a much larger response force would be on the way, both to chase the escaping Capellans and protect the city from further potential attacks. It would dilute that much further the defenses of House Ma-Tsu Kai's true target: IMB Systems.

Victory!

I am enjoying these guys, Kojak. It's making me think about putting together a resurgent warrior house Ijori.
Their rebirth on Liao in 3134 and then their efforts later offer plenty of interesting scenarios

Since when did the Warrior Houses field armor?

Since The Scorpion Jar, when House Ma-Tsu Kai is depicted as using armor during the fighting on Kurragin. FM 3145 describes the Warrior Houses as having two augmented 'Mech battalions and two augmented battlesuit battalions. Since I like armor and Ma-Tsu Kai had been depicted as using it, I changed out the augmented battlesuit battalions for augmented armor battalions.

3:10 TO BUDA

Machair of St. Stephen
Carbonis, Oriente Protectorate
Free Worlds League
29 January 3145


Four days after the Capellan strike on the Szeged district, with the fires still burning and most of both the 7th Oriente and the planetary militia dug in at the various major approaches to Budapest in anticipation of further attacks, Shiao-zhang Liu executed the third phase of his plan. An armored cavalry company under the command of Lien-zhang Morgan Wei would strike at minor rail depot through which a major artery of Budapest's extensive mag-lev network passed. These trains, capable of carrying thousands of tons of cargo all across the Budapest metroplex at nearly two hundred kilometers per hour, were key to Liu's plan. From this junction, the trains traveled to several critical sites, including the heart of the the IMB Systems complex on the Little Buda Isthmus.

Using the open terrain of the machair to move swiftly, Wei's company (Morgan's Monsters) advanced on the depot and discovered a short battalion of milita armor, VTOLs and battlesuits defending the facility. Anchored around a platoon of massive Bulwark Assault Vehicles, the militia put up a ferocious defense against the Capellans, disabling or destroying half of Wei's tanks in the fighting. A charge by the Monsters' R10s disgorged the company's Shen Long battlesuits practically on top of the Marik Bulwarks; a few barrages of tandem-charge SRMs from the battlesuits later, and all six of the Bulwarks were crippled as the shower of shaped-charge warheads punched through the assault tanks' thick armor plating to the vulnerable components within. Their core shattered, the remainder of the militia detachment was quickly destroyed, with only a handful of stragglers managing to flee.

With the militia routed and the railyard securely in Warrior House hands, a full augmented battalion of 'Mechs and supporting forces boarded the next (immediately captured) train and set off for their final destination: IMB Systems.

Victory!

House Ma-Tsu Kai
Very cool!  I'm a fan of the Warrior Houses, myself, and have a c. 3062 House Hiritsu force I build a number of years ago.  You've outlined your force in much more detail than I ever did, thought, so kudos for that!   I've been thinking about doing a new, updated HH list to have a unit in the current timeline so I had a couple questions for you, if you don’t mind.  Excuse me if I show my ignorance, as I'm still learning about the post Jihad era.

I notice that in your company structure, only the second and third lances are augmented.  Why is that?  I had not seen anything about that in the general info on Liao Augmented units I've read, but I could easily have missed something.  On Sarna.net (I know, not always 100% reliable), it describes an Augmented Company as two Augmented Lances with no mention of a third, un-augmented lance, and an Augmented Battalion as four Augmented Companies plus a Command Lance (presumably not augmented?).  I know from some feeback I received from the author of the FM:3085, that at that time the Warrior Houses battalions consisted of two companies of two augmented lances, each, with no command lance so obviously the Warrior Housed don’t always exactly follow CCAF doctrine. 

Yes, in FM 3145 the Warrior Houses are all expanded to two augmented 'Mech battalions and two augmented tank battalions apiece.
In FM:3145 under Warrior House Orders (p. 31) it states that "During Operation CELESTIAL REWARD the Warrior
Houses once again led the charge, newly expanded by the Chancellor’s decree to two augmented ’Mech battalions and two more of augmented battle armor."  Not sure exactly when Operation CELESTIAL REWARD took place, but when did they change that two two mech battalions and two vehicle battalions?

Since The Scorpion Jar, when House Ma-Tsu Kai is depicted as using armor during the fighting on Kurragin. FM 3145 describes the Warrior Houses as having two augmented 'Mech battalions and two augmented battlesuit battalions. Since I like armor and Ma-Tsu Kai had been depicted as using it, I changed out the augmented battlesuit battalions for augmented armor battalions.
Ah!  I have not finished The Scorion Jar yet, but in that book did they have actual House members piloting the armor, or were they standard CCAF armor units supporting the House?  I know I've got some nonHouse armor support in my 3062 HH list, based on they being depicted in one of the old novels.  Either way, the augmented armor lances are a cool feature and I may see if I can justify adding some to my 3145 HH list (if I ever actually build it!).

Thanks for your questions and comments!

You're right about the structure of an augmented battalion. It should, properly, be four augmented companies plus a command lance. When I initially put the Warrior House together, a misreading of the text caused me to think that each company was two augmented lances, plus an unaugmented command lance, and that there were three per battalion as usual. Well after the House was completed, I re-read the passage and understood my error, but I figured that since it worked out to the same number of 'Mechs and slightly fewer conventional assets, I'd keep it as-is to reflect how new (and thus slightly understrength) the unit was.

As for the passage from The Scorpion Jar, I couldn't tell you for certain. I don't own the book, but another poster was kind enough to PM me a detailed summary of the relevant events from the book. In that summary, at least, it does appear that it was solely House Ma-Tsu Kai forces involved and thus that it was them using the armor. That's good enough for me, at any rate.

LONG TRAIN RUNNING

IMB Systems Compound, Budapest
Carbonis, Oriente Protectorate
Free Worlds League
30 January 3145


Loading themselves onto the massive cargo trains that would take them straight to the heart of the IMB Systems compound, House Ma-Tsu Kai's combat arm sped toward their goal. One augmented battalion, led by Shiao-zhang Liu, took a train well ahead of the rest of the unit: this was the House's assault force. Upon arrival at the compound, the House battalion found the remainder of the 7th Oriente Hussars and an Irian corporate security company set up in defensive positions, having somehow gotten advance warning of the assault. With over five lances of BattleMechs, a heavy missile-support C3 armor company, dug-in battlesuits and heavy infantry, and the support of the nearby Argo-class CMS Giacomo Orloff and its battery of Long Toms loaded with deadly-accurate Copperhead munitions, the Shiao-zhang knew he was in for a much harder fight than he had anticipated. However, shortly after contact and was made and the assault got underway, it became clear that the Capellans were not who the defenders had been waiting for: Rolling Thunder, the infamous Regulan 'Mech company, was hot-dropping from high orbit directly onto the compound, apparently using the Ma-Tsu Kai attack as cover for a raid of their own.

What followed was vicious block-by-block fighting between all three sides. The dug-in defenders inflicted heavy damage on the Capellans and Regulans both, as infantry and VTOL spotters brought down precise artillery and missile barrages on their heads (at one point literally, when a Regulan Neanderthal charged in at the Oriente armor commander's Partisan only to have a Copperhead shell blow apart its cockpit in response). The IMB headquarters and several other skyscrapers were toppled, and most of the compound reduced to flames and rubble. In the chaos and confusion, Rolling Thunder managed to make off with the data core they had come to steal, albeit at the cost of two of their three 'Mech lances. Shiao-zhang Liu did not hesitate to exploit the distraction the Regulans presented, rapidly repositioning the Warrior House lines to pincer the defenders between their two foes. Leading from the front in his Tian-zong, Liu tore into both sides mercilessly, personally bringing down an Oriente Marauder and a Regulan Berserker.

While he led most of the battalion on a winding path through the warehouses and office buildings and began pressing into the defensive cordon around the facility's nerve center, a mixed company under Lien-zhang Jana Saraphis mounted a heroic defense against a dedicated counterattack by an Oriente strike force led by the Seventh's XO, Major Jesse Livingstone. Feinting toward the trio of elite Marik assault 'Mechs with her own Yu Huang, she feigned a retreat under heavy fire and drew Livingstone's forces into a trap. As the Capellans fell back in apparent disarray, the Hussars pressed forward through a chokepoint only to enter a series of Fa Shih-deployed minefields. Saraphis' forces immediately began to push back against the Mariks, concentrated fire pushing them back through the chokepoint, where the reeling Marik 'Mechs found themselves backing into another hastily-laid set of minefields. Saraphis' executive officer, Pai-zhang Amy Yeh, used her Lu Wei Bing's superior maneuverability to corner Major Livingstone's Juliano, tearing away literal tons of armor before laser fire from a nearby Irian APC detonated her ammo bins; the resulting overwhelming neurohelmet feedback proved fatal. A final furious drive by a vengeful Saraphis saw all three assault 'Mechs felled and their supporting tanks and infantry scattered; tragically, however, the Lien-zhang was killed just before the Hussars broke, the victim of a skilled (or lucky) Irian sniper with a "David" light gauss rifle getting a shot through her badly-damaged canopy.

As the survivors of Rolling Thunder made their escape, the last few defenders fell or fled. The Capellans gathered all the salvage they could as their DropShips landed at the site's private landing pads; once the the entire Warrior House was loaded, the DropShips turned their guns on what remained of the compound, systematically razing every last building before lifting for orbit. The raid on Carbonis had been a smashing success: the League had been bloodied, the Warrior House's skills sharpened, and its cargo holds filled with both material and intel from IMB Systems and more than enough salvage to replace their losses. By February they had returned to Capellan space, where they received word that the Chancellor himself was greatly pleased with the Warrior House. The House was summoned to Sian, where several warriors were awarded the Grand Cordon of Merit; Shiao-zhang Liu was honored with the Cluster for Conspicious Heroism for his actions in the final battle, as was Lien-zhang Saraphis (posthumously); Liu was also given leave by Daoshen to display the Chancellor's colors on his BattleMech, which was refitted with Clan technology at Hellespont 'Mech Works by request of Grand Master Hui.

Shortly after returning to their monastery on Bithinia, the Warrior House received their new orders: they were being sent to solve the brewing situation on the Victoria Commonality world of Laconis.

Laconis was first catalogued by Taurian surveyors from the Ministry of Trade and Colonization in the early 27th century, shortly after the end of the reconstruction period that had followed the bloody Reunification War. While promising in many respects, initial analysis showed that Laconis' water was too toxic to sustain a significant long-term human presence. Due to this, it was flagged by the Ministry as unsuitable and more or less forgotten for over two decades. However, with the innovation in 2622 of the Jamerson-Ulikov water purifier, otherwise marginal worlds like Laconis suddenly became viable targets for colonization. In 2626, the planet's first colony was founded, mostly by Taurians from the Greek-speaking world of Megaris in the Hyades Cluster. Called Sparta, it lay in the warmer equatorial region of Pellana, along the coast of the Myrtoan Sea. The sprawling mountain range that covered most of Pellana, named the Pentadaktylos (the Five Fingers) by the locals, had four sizable interstitial glacial valleys between its “fingers”; Sparta began in one of these and over time expanded to fill all four. These expansions required great tunnels to be blasted through the Fingers so that transit systems and rail lines could link the valleys directly and relieve the strain Sparta's growth had caused on the fledgling colony's bluewater transport infrastructure.

It was during the excavation of one of these tunnels that an enormous vein of boron was discovered. A critical component in modern BattleMech armor, chemically uncombined boron was rarely found naturally occurring outside of asteroids (even now, nearly half a millennium later, competing theories about geological and cosmological processes that allowed such rich deposits to form with such purity cause vigorous debates in astrogeological circles). Savvy businessmen quickly exploited this by forming the Taurus Majoris Mining corporation, which used Star League economic recovery grants to rapidly build a sprawling network of advanced boron mines that fed into a massive armor production complex in the Caeadas Valley. Combined with a complete removal of immigration restrictions, Laconis saw an explosion in its population as the lure of high-paying mining and manufacturing work brought hundreds of new colonists every day. By the turn of the century, over five million people claimed Laconis as their home.

The SLDF's 35th Infantry Division called the planet home for much of the 28th century, stationed there to fend off the pirate raids that the TMM complexes inevitably drew. While the relationship between the garrison and the planet's populace was often as tense as on any other Taurian world, the Thirty-fifth gained a positive reputation in 2759 when Major General Mila Vandroogenbroeck allowed the division's combat assets and support personnel to be used by the planetary government to help rebuild the capital city after a strong hurricane destroyed the majority of the infrastructure there (the fact that the Nineteenth Army was dependent on the uninterrupted output of the TMM armor factories was no doubt as much a factor as the public relations boost). This greatly improved Laconis' relationship with the Star League's bureaucracy, and it was not one of the worlds that seceded during the Periphery Uprising of 2765 (or the Freedom War, as it is known in Taurian textbooks). As a result, it was completely omitted from the SLDF's reprisals and spared the damage that most other central Taurian worlds suffered from the fighting.

The mass economic downturn that followed the fall of the Star League and the early Succession Wars largely bypassed Laconis; its economic strength lay in a resource that was in greater demand than ever. Taurus Majoris Mining used these years to expand their operations, building mobile refinery stations throughout Taurian space. By the 31st century, it was the largest commercial extractor and refiner of ores in the Concordat. The TDF, by then highly invested in the safety of the armor factories, regularly rotated the battalions of the Red Chasseurs through the system. Other than the occasional pirate or Davion raid, almost always handily fended off by the Chasseurs, relatively little of note happened on Laconis until 3106.

Duke Daoshen Liao, commander of the Red Lancers and heir to the Capellan Confederation, was still furious over the detente that had concluded the Victoria War.  Looking to assuage his wounded pride over the loss of a Commonality capital and the public rebuke of his father for his wartime heroics, Daoshen chose to lash out at the Confederation's erstwhile allies, taking advantage of the Concordat's lingering weakness in the wake of the Jihad to snap up a few valuable worlds. A rapid offensive by Sung's Rangers and the Seventh Confederation Reserve Cavalry captured Laconis, along with Brisbane and Bromhead, catching the defending TDF forces completely off guard. The battalion of Red Chasseurs on Laconis when Sung's Rangers struck was crushed in less than a month, and the planetary government capitulated to the Confederation immediately thereafter. To ease the transition, Daoshen had the majority shareholders of Taurus Majoris Mining inducted into the Sheng nobility and Laconis paired with Brisbane in a new warren, rather than forcing it under the thumb of neighboring Rollis, as many Laconiki had feared. Both the heads of TMM and much of the populace, while not exactly welcoming of the Capellan takeover, had grown tired of the incompetence and heavy-handedness of Protector Urratia and the junta.  Their acceptance of their new overlords was solidified by a series of short-sighted retaliatory raids ordered by Protector Urratia; attacks by the First Taurian Lancers and Gordon's Armored Cavalry in 3112 and 3117, respectively, both did widespread damage to Laconis' infrastructure before being beaten back by the CCAF garrison. The failure of these attacks, along with the spate of planets seceding from the Concordat that followed on their heels, set the stage for the eventual coup d'etat that left Urratia dead and Kaff Doru as the new Protector.

The 2nd Magistracy Highlanders garrisoned Laconis and the other captured Taurian worlds from 3122 to 3137, and the greater cultural affinity between the occupiers and the Laconiki helped smooth over the final stages of the world's full incorporation into the Confederation. However, much of this good work has been undone since the Highlanders left and were replaced by the Eighth Confederation Reserve Cavalry. A regiment composed of the conscripted sons and daughters of BattleMech-owning Sheng nobles, the Eighth had proven an abject failure. Their defeat at the gates of Tikograd during the first attacks on Tikonov had earned them the Chancellor's displeasure, and he effectively banished them to Laconis; Taurian raids had petered off and only the rare pirate raid was a threat to Laconis at all. With little to do in the way of military matters, the arrogant nobles who made up the regiment began to throw their weight around both in the political system and society in general. After a handful of peaceful protests were met with violent force from the Eighth CRC, an anti-Capellan insurgency began. As on many other worlds, the insurgents were aided by the Blackout: Laconis' HPG was one of the many that failed on Gray Monday. While the Strategios' current plan is to gradually cashier and replace the Eighth's members, the Concordat has managed to exploit the situation; already, insurgents augmented by suspected Special Task Groups teams from the Taurian Ministry of Intelligence have made strikes at Eighth CRC bases and assets (and, quite conspicuously, not those of the Home Guard).

For most of its existence, Laconis had functioned as a typical Taurian representative democracy, with a robust welfare state funded by the wealth Laconis' industrial sector produced. In the decades prior to Capellan rule, under the regime of the juntas, political freedoms began to wane as the federal government cracked down on “unpatriotic” sentiments using the emergency powers Protector Shraplen had activated “for the duration of the crisis” in 3066. Ironically, this slow erosion of civil liberties made it much easier for the Confederation to assimilate Laconis following its conquest. With a large middle class and little social mobility (the steep decline of warfare since the end of the Jihad and the hyperinflation that the bull had experienced in the 3070s had produced a long period of economic stagnation for Laconis), the caste system of the Confederation was a good fit for the Laconiki in many ways. They also benefited from the increased rights for servitors that Daoshen's father had established in the previous century, as nearly everyone on Laconis and the other new worlds were able to earn their citizenship by the late 3120s. The economy has begun to improve noticeably in recent decades as access to Capellan markets gives Taurus Majoris Mining far greater reach than they ever had as a Taurian company.

Greek and English are the main languages spoken by the Laconiki; most speak both fluently, as they are both taught throughout their primary and secondary education. Since the Capellan conquest, Mandarin has also become a part of the curriculum, which has put a strain on teachers as language courses threaten to crowd out other important subjects. No religion is particularly dominant on Laconis, although the Orthodox and New Avalon Catholic churches claim the largest shares, with a few million followers apiece. Adherents of nearly every major religion can be found here; for a time in the late 30th and early 31st century, there was even an enclave of the One-Star Faith high in the Pentadaktylos. Not surprisingly, the largest employer on Laconis is TMM; there are also sizable petroleum and aquaculture industries (nearly entirely for local use). Due to the plentiful mountains and cooler-than-average temperatures, alpine sports are extremely popular, and especially mountain-climbing. Not coincidentally, the TDF's specialized mountaineer infantry units usually contained a disproportionate number of Laconiki (and several platoons now serve in the Home Guard). Much like their namesake, natives of Laconis tend to be terse, and accord respect on that basis: to be talkative is to be considered foolish and immature. Like many Taurians (or, in this case, ex-Taurians), most Laconiki despise House Davion; when Bromhead had nuclear weapons deployed against it by the TDF in the 3070s, many Laconiki saw it as justice for the countless AFFS raids that had used Bromhead as their staging point. This hatred of the Davions has also made House Liao somewhat easier to embrace: the CCAF's success against the Federated Suns and execution of the hated Duchess Hasek in recent years has been greatly played up by state media.

Perhaps the most interesting feature of Laconis is that its rotation lasts just eight hours, and its year is only half as long as Terran Standard. Visitors can find this incredibly disorienting as their bodies try to adjust to three sunrises and sunsets each day. Because of the constant fluctuation of lighting and temperature this causes, shades with polarized lenses are extremely commonly worn and tear-away sleeves and leggings are a standard part of almost all Laconiki clothing. Another adaptation has been what the natives call chnoúdi: similar to the concept of “siesta” found throughout the Capellan March and several older Terran cultures, chnoúdi is a nap taken during second sunset and followed by a light, tapas-like meal (usually sushi or other seafood-based confections) with friends or co-workers. Most Laconiki also regularly consume a beverage called tsai vounou, a tea steeped in sage grown in the Pentadaktylos and infused with guarana. When the Confederation took over, locally farmed abalone (or bao yu, as it is known in Mandarin) quickly became a dietary staple as the aquacultural industries began producing enough of a surplus to allow for regular export across the Victoria Commonality, where it is considered a delicacy by the well-to-do and members of the nobility.

In preparation for the next phase of this campaign, I've decided to radically upgrade Damien Liu's Tian-zong. However, I can't decide between the two upgrades I've come up with, so I thought I'd put it to the crowd.

Tian-Zong TNZ-NX
Tian-Zong TNZ-NXS

Possibly too late, but I like the -NX variant as it hews closer to the Tian-zong's canon layouts (although the NXS is a nasty beasty). One quick question, it looks to me like they are still sinked to handle stealth armor heat, but I thought the CLPS generated less, was that intentional?

No, not too late, and I deeply value your opinion, you're pretty much my favorite designer out there.

As for the heat, at least on the -NX, the idea is that it can pull off a jumping alpha with the CLPS active and still be heat neutral.

Well, obviously I haven't updated here in a while, but Steve and I just kicked off the first scenario of the Laconis campaign earlier tonight, with more of it to come in the very near future. Stay tuned for more details!

Looks like we're just a single session away from wrapping up the current scenario. Instead of the wipeout of the Liao forces I was expecting, it looks like the Ma-Tsu Kai forces and their allies will be able to withdraw mostly intact while having badly bloodied the noses of their opponents. More to come soon.

The scenario turned out to be more or less a draw; it was a very fun game, especially considering that I was expecting to get utterly hosed. I'm working on the write-up now, and will post it soon.

Sorry this write-up is taking so long, guys, it's just that I haven't had much free time lately, so I've chipped away it but it's only probably about a third of the way done. Fortunately I have some time off later this week that I can use to finally wrap this up, so watch this space.

FLIPPING THE BIRD

Mila Vandroogenbroeck Memorial Freeway, The Middle Finger
Laconis, Victoria Commonality
Capellan Confederation
30 July 3145


When Damien Liu and his Warrior House arrived on Laconis in late June of 3145, the local political situation had badly deteriorated. Thanks to the spoiled noblemen's children of the Eighth CRC and their heavy-handed treatment of the populace, the anti-Liao insurgency was beginning to gain real popular support, threatening to overwhelm the local Zang shu zhe branch through sheer numbers. Likewise, it was increasingly evident that the insurgency was receiving support and training from the Special Task Groups, the Taurian Ministry of Intelligence's elite commando force; the Concordat clearly saw the situation as a potential opportunity to reclaim Laconis from an overextended Confederation. Despite the Maskirovka's best efforts, they could no longer contain the situation, which was what had forced them to call in Warrior House Ma-Tsu Kai for help in the first place. Unlike other CCAF regiments, the Warrior Houses existed entirely outside of the chain of command, and thus the House of Scions had no sway over them, rendering any attempts at political retaliation by the Eighth's membership impotent.

Unfortunately, the worst of the damage had already been done. In a major intelligence coup, the Taurians had managed to subvert nearly the entire Laconis Home Guard (including its entire officer corps) without the Maskirovka's knowledge, placing a poisoned dagger at the heart of the Capellan defenses. The Home Guard also provided the Taurians with the codes needed to register on the planetary sensor net as a Capellan convoy, allowing them to smuggle both the Red Chasseurs and the supporting Clean Kill mercenary battalion into the system without incident. With the insurgency making relentless rocket and mortar attacks against CRC outposts and convoys, coupled with reports of unmarked 'Mechs occasionally accompanying the strikes before fading back into the wilderness, the Eighth was forced to rely more on the aid of both Warrior House Ma-Tsu Kai and the Home Guard. As July wore on, larger and heavier forces began escorting convoys, keeping them occupied while the Taurian commander, Colonel Rose Cox, moved her forces into position. Finally, by the month's end, the trap was ready to be sprung.

A sizable convoy loaded with ammunition and armor fresh from the TMM factories headed toward Fort Brown, the Eighth CRC's primary base, on the morning of 30 July. Chaperoning it were two BattleMech lances from the Eighth, a lance of advanced Jinggaus from House Ma-Tsu Kai, and the command lance of the Laconis Home Guard, led by Zhong-shao Moon Tanaka herself from the cockpit of her Thunder. As the convoy passed through a more open section of the Middle Finger's overpass into east Pellana, they came under sudden attack from Clean Kill's Assassin Company, a unit composed of fast-strike medium 'Mechs. The two 'Mech lances from the Cavalry and the lone Warrior House lance moved to engage the attackers, while the Home Guard 'Mechs and tanks hung back, seemingly reluctant to engage. Once the other CCAF 'Mechs were fully embroiled in combat, the Home Guardsmen opened fire on them, rapidly downing a Cavalry Trebaruna and crippling another.

Immediately realizing the extent of the Home Guard's betrayal if the command lance itself (presumably composed of soldiers with the most extensive Maskirovka vetting) had turned on them, Pai-zhang Teodor Szajner took command of the remaining loyal Capellans and led them in a pugnacious defensive withdrawal that dealt as much damage to the mercenaries and their Home Guard allies as possible before falling back. While Sao-shao Zhu and Sao-wei Fok of the Eighth Cavalry provided a base of fire with their assault 'Mechs, Pai-zhang Szajner spread his Jinggaus and the Cavalry's two Vindicators in a loose skirmish line that allowed them to move together rapidly with their jump jets and converge on a single target. To prevent them from being overwhelmed, Sao-weis Luo and Akbash of the Eighth blitzed their Griffins straight through a weak point in the mercenary line, spraying plasma and missile fire all over the backsides of several Clean Kill 'Mechs and doing damage far out of proportion to their own numbers. The mercenaries' positioning and superior numbers all but ensured their escape with the munitions convoy in tow, but they did so with less than half their initial force; the Capellans felled a half-dozen mercenary BattleMechs and wiped out the entire Home Guard force save for Zhong-shao Tanaka, at the price of both Griffins and Sao-wei Vatsik's Vindicator. With the remaining seven Capellan 'Mechs too slow or badly damaged to pursue the stragglers in earnest and without information on what was happening on the rest of Laconis, Pai-zhang Szajner led them west back down the overpass, trying to re-establish contact with the rest of the Warrior House so he could decide how to proceed next.

By the time he did, several hours later, the situation had gotten considerably worse.

Alright, now that I've gotten a little more free time lately, I can start putting together the next scenario tomorrow. Shout-out to Nav_Alpha, who helped brainstorm scenario ideas and gave me some real inspiration for how to shape this thing going forward.

I've had the next scenario for this campaign sitting on the burner for years now, ready to go, and the other night I decided to try it out with the bot. Turns out Princess has gotten considerably more competent in the years since I'd last tried it out, and I'm now four turns in to a very large urban battle; I'll post pics when I start the next turn.

Couple of pics where the scrum has gotten pretty intense, at the beginning of Round 7:





If you can make out the minimap, the blue units are House Ma-Tsu Kai, the red are the Eighth CRC, the green are the attacking Clean Kill and Laconis Home Guard, and the orange dots are the evacuating government officials. Right now the Capellans are striving to bloody the nose of the initial wave of attackers before reinforcing 'Mech companies from the Red Chasseurs arrive on turns 13 and 25. Both sides also have sixteen Arrow IV tubes apiece, and although I'm considerably better with Arrow IV than the bot is, that hasn't stopped her from absolutely vaporizing my Phoenix Hawk IIC 7 and a CRC Po II with her own. Overall it's been going much better than I'd anticipated, but I imagine the tide will start to turn once the first Taurian company arrives, and that I'll want to withdraw entirely before the latter one does as well.

Wanted to note here that this scenario is still ongoing, it's just been on hold because I decided I wanted to co-op the rest of it with Taharqa (he'll be taking over the Eighth CRC from me). So this will be resuming this upcoming Thursday night.

Dunno why I didn't post on here about it before now, but Taharqa and I did the co-op thing last Thursday and had a blast; I'm heavily leaning towards doing co-op runs against the bot like this in future scenarios in this arc, particularly the next one.

Just wrapped up another session of this scenario, and the bot is really taking it on the chin now; those Gùns really started dropping like flies once we dove into 'em, and while we've taken a few more losses from the opposing Arrow IV, we've pretty much got the initial wave on the run. I'm half-considering sticking it out for the reinforcing Red Chasseurs when the first company arrives in a couple more turns and seeing if I can just stand my ground and smoke these fools.

Okay, after tonight's session I'm starting to think I might have to bring in some reinforcements on top of the two Red Chasseurs companies if I'm going to have the Capellans forced out of the capital at all.

The Taurians are coming! The Taurians are coming!

Tonight's session's final turn had the arrival of the first wave of Taurians, and I decided to have the entire battalion deploy rather than just two companies to ensure that the Capellans are forced to retreat, so the first two companies have arrived and another two should be arriving on Turn 25. Hopefully, by the time the latter arrive, I should already have exfiltrated, but we'll see.

Still more or less what it was originally. I lost a couple of pilots on Carbonis, of course, but none of the units that suffered those losses have been used in this campaign yet, so I haven't had to sort out the replacements. I should probably check my master doc, though, to see if at some point I already worked that out and have since forgotten.

So looking over the master doc, it looks like the House lost three Mechwarriors in the Carbonis campaign:

Ban-zhang Miloslav Slavik [1st Lance, 2nd Company, 1st Battalion]
Lien-zhang Jana Saraphis [1st Lance, 3rd Company, 1st Battalion]
Pai-zhang Amy Yeh [1st Lance, 3rd Company, 1st Battalion]

Ban-zhang Slavik was replaced in the usual way, by promoting his understudy to take his place (the new pilot's name is Ares Ducay).

Lien-zhang Saraphis, whose former company has since been nicknamed "Jana's Revenge", is now commanded by former Pai-zhang George Min, who was promoted to take her place. Similarly, Ban-zhang Roman Marco was promoted to replace Pai-zhang Yeh, and two understudies (Ban-zhangs Linda Bakhovtsev and Isolde Sina) have taken their old slots and 'Mechs as well.

Just finished up another session: the Red Chasseurs and the Eighth CRC have really torn into each other, the Chasseurs getting the better of it (partly because the Eighth's TAG-ers for their artillery battery missed their shots [by 1!] for four turns in a row). As a result the surviving Cavalry are falling back toward the Warrior House's position, who were already falling back in anticipation of further Taurian reinforcements -- another two companies of Taurians will be arriving in a couple of turns, so now the Warrior House is faced with the decision of whether or not to risk covering the retreat of the Cavalry rather than just pulling back and leaving the impetuous nobles to their well-deserved fate...

Finally wrapped up the latest scenario a few minutes ago. I will try to find time to do the write-up sooner rather than later, although recent life events (of the good sort, don't worry!) have further constrained my available free time so I'm not going to make any sort of hard promise here. That said, I did have a few hours free up tomorrow evening, so I may just try to grind it out then.

THIS IS SPARTA

Downtown Sparta, Taygetos Valley
Laconis, Victoria Commonality
Capellan Confederation
30 July 3145


While Pai-zhang Teodor Szajner's lance was busy fighting for their lives high in the mountains, another jaw of the Taurian trap swung shut on the planetary capital. The 'Mech battalion of the traitorous Home Guard, backed by Clean Kill's Bludgeon Company (painted in Home Guard colors), moved into the capitol to capture the ruling Mandrissa Kassandra Aetos and her entourage of advisors and bureaucrats; by swiftly and relatively bloodlessly decapitating the occupying Capellan government in a single day, the Taurians believed this would deliver Laconis to them as a practical fait accompli. However, standing between them and their targets were a House Ma-Tsu Kai 'Mech company and a mixed battalion of the Eighth CRC, deployed to the capital ever since the Warrior House's arrival due to the rising tide of insurgency. But the traitors had an ace up their sleeve: Brigadier Odessa Sin and the Third Battalion of the Red Chasseurs were also vectoring toward the capitol, though due to their need to keep a lower profile to avoid prematurely alerting the Capellan defenders, they would arrive a few minutes behind their compatriots. The plan called for the Home Guard and mercenaries to present falsified orders from the Maskirovka to relieve the Eighth, splitting the defending force and allowing them to be defeated in detail by the trailing Chasseurs.

Leading BattleMechs of the Home Guard came into initial contact with elements of the Eighth CRC, and here is where the Taurian plan began to go awry: ironically, even the Taurians had underestimated the sheer bullheaded obnoxiousness of the Eighth's Mechwarriors. Feeling that the 'lowly' Home Guardsman were insulting them with their presence in the capitol when the Eighth had already been deployed in its defense, they refused to accept the Guardsmens' bluff that they had been ordered to relieve them. As several highborn Mechwarriors heaped abuse over the comms channels on the Home Guard, one Guardsman Mechwarrior lost his cool and opened fire on a CRC BattleMech. Suddenly a massive firefight broke out, as both sides began to lay into each other, the traitors assuming that the figurative rubicon had been crossed and that they would now have to commit their force in full. The Warrior House officer in the vicinity, Ying-zhang Aleks Shaparov, ordered the Mandrissa and her retinue evacuated from the capitol; while his command lance placed themselves around the evac zone to protect the fleeing officials, the other two lances bounded forward to try to pull the Cavalry's fat out of the fryer.

With its BattleMech component comprised entirely of Calliopes and Gùns, only the heavy and assault 'Mechs of Bludgeon Company kept the Home Guard from being massively outweighed by the heavier Cavalry forces. Artillery missiles began to crisscross in both directions as the not-inconsiderable Arrow-IV batteries on both sides began to add their firepower to the mix, and numerous 'Mechs and tanks on both sides were annihilated in hails of laser-guided ordnance. The arrival of the Warrior House 'Mechs started to turn the tide in the defenders' favor, as Pai-zhang John Huang's lance of Jinggaus launched headhunting attacks against the heavier mercenary 'Mechs while the CRC 'Mechs cut the lighter Guardsmen to pieces (especially the lightly-armored Gùns). By the time the Red Chasseurs began to arrive in force, the Home Guard and mercenaries had been shattered, and the government functionaries had already nearly made their escape.

Realizing that they would soon be overrun, Ying-zhang Shaparov and his company initiated their withdrawal just behind the evacuee convoy; the Eighth, on the other hand, once again let their pride overcome their reason. Flush with overconfidence from fending off the initial assault, they charged straight into the teeth of the Taurian advance. With the battering they had already sustained, they fell to the elite Chasseurs with frightening speed; Sang-shao Reginald MacGregor-Liao ordered a retreat once the reality of the situation became undeniable, but the damage had already been done. Only two lances of BattleMechs and a pair of tanks, of the original mixed battalion, were able to leave the field at all, although the Sang-shao was among their number. The Mandrissa had escaped, but Sparta was now in Taurian hands, and the hated Eighth CRC had been dealt a body blow. And with the final component of the trap about to snap into place, the Capellans' woes had only begun.

The latest scenario will likely be wrapping up in the near future (which is to say the next month or so), as the ambush which the scenario was based around this time was vastly more successful than I anticipated and the Ma-Tsu Kai forces are now in full withdrawal. I'll of course post a more detailed write-up when it's done, and if I remember to I'll take some pics of the latest turn so people can get some idea of the scale of this one.

Wrapped up the scenario last night, and although it was a loss for the Capellans, they got some good licks in before being forced to retreat. Detailed write-up to follow as soon as I finish writing it.

Well, shit. I just discovered that I accidentally re-used the Clean Kill company from the first Laconis scenario as part of the forces for the most recent scenario, even though they happened simultaneously. Not sure what to do, now.

Another force using the Clean Kill´s colors to confuse the opposition?

Or maybe a false flag of some sort?

You know what, I somehow still gave all the pilots different names, so I think I'm gonna just say that the Taurians gave Clean Kill a bunch of new 'Mechs as part of the contract and they used it to build two identically-equipped companies to confuse opponents.

RULE OF THREE

Fort Carliss, Parnon Massif
Laconis, Victoria Commonality
Capellan Confederation
30 July 3145


Chaos reigned across Laconis on the day that the Taurian trap was triggered; while attacks on the convoy and capitol were underway, the final stage had been perhaps the longest in the offing. The Laconis Home Guard's Second Battalion, alongside an assault tank company from the Eighth CRC, had been garrisoning Fort Carliss (one of the twin fortresses, opposite Fort Brown, that sat upon the outer 'knuckles' of the Pentadaktylos) for the last six months. In the most recent "resupply" shipment, the treacherous Home Guard had smuggled in the remaining companies of Clean Kill, just ahead of the two companies of House Ma-Tsu Kai that were scheduled to relieve them. Literal minutes before the Warrior House forces arrived, the mercenaries sprung from the warehouses they'd been concealed in and slaughtered the Eighth CRC in mere moments. Unfortunately for the ambushers, a lone Luduan Scout Vehicle managed to escape, warning the arriving Capellans -- but nearly too late.

As Ying-zhang Tamiela Ismael's forces crested the last rise before Fort Carliss, the mercenaries and militia opened fire. Only canny maneuvering and a bit of luck managed to save the Warrior House forces from instant disaster. More and more assault 'Mechs and tanks began to emerge from the fortress, and as artillery shells began to rain down on the Capellans, it became clear to Ying-zhang Ismael that a fighting retreat was the only viable option. Fortunately, the half-dozen Arrow IV Assault Vehicles further up the road provided a base of covering fire, as Pai-zhang Nicolae Chow bravely led his augmented lance directly into the teeth of the mercenary battalion. While their comrades formed a loose skirmish line to try to hold back the tide of steel and buy time for their slower and more vulnerable units to withdraw, Pai-zhang Chow and Ban-zhang bin Hud used the incredible maneuverability of their jump jets to get dangerously close to the Clean Kill 'Mechs. Their spotting lasers brought salvo after salvo of deadly artillery missiles, and in their wake they left a half-dozen fallen assault 'Mechs -- but at the cost of Pai-zhang Chow's life.

One of those fallen mercenaries was their commander, Major Kasha Wilmoth: her Atlas' cockpit annihilated by a direct artillery hit, and another was the second-ranking officer on site, Captain Qadir Niazi, whose Griffin had suffered an identical fate. Command suddenly fell to Lieutenant Rihaab Yasser, who panicked and ordered the remaining forces under his command to fall back into the fort and allow the remaining Capellans to withdraw. Both sides were wounded badly enough that neither wished to further press the issue; the Warrior House left fallen on the field five 'Mechs and three Mechwarriors, along with two Behemoth II assault tanks and their crews and a pair of Ying Long squads. These were easily the worst losses the Warrior House had suffered to date, but there would be time to mourn later.

As the day came to an end, the Taurians now controlled both the capitol and one of the two critical defensive points on Pellana, and the Capellan defenders were in disarray. But it had come at quite a cost: Clean Kill and the Laconis Home Guard had both lost more than half their strength in the effort, apparently failing to properly anticipate Warrior House Ma-Tsu Kai's skill and resolve. Worse, the Capellan governing officials had evaded their clutches, costing them a substantial piece of leverage. It was becoming clear to all involved that while the Taurians had hoped for a relatively quick affair, this conflict was about to turn into a bloody stalemate.

Well, now that the opening act of the campaign has played out, I'm trying to decide what the next scenario should look like. Any suggestions, readers? I'm open to them.

Just did the math and the Capellan side currently has 145 'Mechs plus about twelve companies of armor and six more of infantry/BA, whereas the Taurians and allies have 169 'Mechs, about seventeen companies of armor, and seven companies of infantry/BA. Also, the overwhelming majority of the remaining Taurian 'Mech force is Veteran (since it's mostly just the Red Chasseurs at this point; Clean Kill and the Laconis Home Guard don't even have three companies of 'Mechs between them), whereas the Capellan side is split pretty evenly between the Veteran-rated Warrior House and the now-quite-understrength Regular-rated 8th CRC (at 66 and 79 'Mechs apiece).

To be honest, I'm starting to lean towards having a pair of bots fight out an attack by the Red Chasseurs on Fort Brown and the meat of the CRC's assets. Perhaps I'll let it play out and decide whether I want it to actually have happened based on the results.

Sounds like a plan.

Alternatively, you could set up a smaller-scale fight between the Chasseurs and the CRC (say 1 mech/tank/squad representing each lance/platoon), and scale up the results.

Well, that went considerably more poorly than I imagined. After six or seven turns I called it quits: turns out Princess still doesn't know how to use stealth armor without overheating herself into oblivion, and between that and the way it had deployed the Taurians in a ridiculously spread-out fashion, I decided it wasn't quite up to snuff for an engagement of this scale, unfortunately.

So...still open to suggestions for what to do next, is I guess what I'm saying.

Alright, we're only a couple turns in, but the latest scenario involves the survivors of the Ma-Tsu Kai forces from the previous three scenarios linking up with a company of Eighth CRC hovertanks that happened to be on naval patrol when the initial attacks went down, to attack a coastal airbase the Taurians are currently staging their ASFs out of. It's defended by two Red Chasseur 'Mech companies and a jump infantry battalion.

Here's a couple screencaps of the latest scenario, as of the end of tonight's session. A couple of Eighth CRC Regulator IIs have gotten mobility-ganked, one of the Ma-Tsu Kai Jinggau pilots just got knocked unconscious, and the Taurians are down one headless Hawkwolf and an Albatross leg.

Just wrapped up another session. The Taurian Albatross was finished off; their brigadier in the Yu Huang got clobbered by an Arrow IV volley (four of the five shots that hit went to the left torso), as did one of their two Thunderbolts; the Cerberus was hit from behind by a TSEMP Tamerlane, shut down, and then was brutally ganged up on and vaporized. Unfortunately, the Capellans lost both of their TAG spotters in the process, so that advantage is gone. About half of the assorted Eighth CRC Regulators are down for the count as well.

Just finished two scenarios for this campaign in short order recently, so the write-ups will be up as soon as I'm done writing them (I'm hoping to get both done today, but we'll see what happens).

CATCH A WAVE

Cardenas Aerodrome, The Thumbnail
Laconis, Victoria Commonality
Capellan Confederation
1 August 3145


The surprise Taurian assault on 30 July, while not without its setbacks, had within 48 hours completely changed the dynamic on Laconis. The Capellans were on their back foot, and they knew it. The bulk of the Eighth CRC was bottled up in Fort Brown, with the majority of the Red Chasseurs besieging the fortress. Counting on the relative remoteness and inaccessibility of the Ma-Tsu Kai redoubt in the high mountains to greatly delay their ability to respond, they aimed to knock out one of their two primary opponents before the other could fully engage, much like the stratégie de la position centrale of the 19th century wars of ancient Terra. An ill-conceived attempt by the Eighth to use their two flights of aerospace fighters to break out of the siege resulted in a brutally one-side dogfight as the Taurians' highly-skilled 22nd Corps Air Division slaughtered all two-dozen barely-competent Capellan pilots in a fiasco reminiscent of the infamous Great Lee Turkey Shoot, not losing even a single fighter of their own. Over the next day and a half, as Taurian and Home Guard artillery rapidly cleared away Fort Brown's air defenses, the 22nd began executing bombing runs, flying multiple sorties that greatly magnified the damage already being done by the artillery barrages. They staged out of an old coastal airbase disused since the days of the Red Chasseurs' original garrisoning of the planet four decades prior, sitting at the southwestern corner of Pellana, on a tiny spit of land known locally as the Thumbnail. Now the only remaining aerospace fighters onworld, they bombarded Fort Brown with impunity.

Colonel Rose Cox, the Taurian commander, had dispatched a company of 'Mechs and one of her infantry battalions to guard the airbase, on the off chance of a Capellan counterstrike, but she had assumed it would be sufficient to fend off what had been anticipated in the planning stages of the operation to be survivors that were both disorganized and few in number. Instead, the various Ma-Tsu Kai detachments deployed outside of their base at the old Temple of Blue Purity (now called the Acropolis by the CCAF) withdrew more or less cleanly from their respective engagements, linking up at the small mining town of Barkston southeast of Fort Brown before skirting obliquely away from the Taurian siege and breaking for the Cardenas Aerodrome. Having observed multiple Taurian fighters from afar as they passed overhead and making use of the sophisticated electronics on Ban-zhang Vasilii Markianov's Men Shen to hack into a civilian comms satellite, Ying-zhang Tamiela Ismael coordinated with the Reserve Cavalry hovercraft company she knew had been on coastal patrol duty at the time of the Taurian attack. Together, they made a tandem strike on the airbase, hitting the site just as the 22nd was busy refueling from their latest sortie.

The Ma-Tsu Kai forces made the direct approach down the length of the Thumbnail -- the only overland approach possible, part of what made the site so defensible. However, the Cavalry hovertanks cut across the water from the north, striking at the Taurians from a second angle and forcing them to split their forces. While their core of mobile medium 'Mechs tried to fend off an assortment of Regulators and Tamerlanes to mixed results, the Chasseurs' heavy and assault 'Mechs stood their ground against the Capellan onslaught outside the front gates of the aerodrome. Initially bloodying the already-damaged Liao 'Mechs, they were felled one by one as the firepower of Ying-zhang Shaparov's lance, the ministrations of a trio of Behemoth II assault tanks and barrages of the last of the force's guided Arrow IV munitions proved far too overwhelming for them to withstand; expert rotation of the damaged Capellan 'Mechs resulted in only two falling to enemy fire. The surviving Taurians, true to their reputation, made a lion-hearted last stand as the Capellans poured into the base, fighting until only a pair of thrashing, one-legged medium 'Mechs remained. But they could not prevent the ultimate result: at the cost of just two BattleMechs and a half-dozen hovertanks, the entirety of the Taurian air division had been destroyed in a single fell swoop, as the Warrior House 'Mechs wasted no time slagging the remaining aerospace fighters into so much scrap metal. Withdrawing as quickly as they had struck, they fell back into the mountains and toward the Acropolis, having thoroughly shifted the course of the conflict to come.

A MODEST PROPOSAL

Mila Vandroogenbroeck Memorial Freeway, The Ring Finger
Laconis, Victoria Commonality
Capellan Confederation
9 August 3145


In the wake of the strike on the Cardenas Aerodrome and the subsequent destruction of the last aerospace assets on Laconis, the Taurians had been forced to alter their strategy. While still keeping the Eighth Reserve Cavalry penned in at Fort Brown, the Taurians now thoroughly invested themselves in preparation for what would likely be an eventual simultaneous attack from both within the fort and without; while their artillery was still effective at keeping the Cavalry's heads down, the loss of their bombers had greatly slowed the reduction of the stronghold. Further dividing their forces was the need to protect the convoys making their routine deliveries from the boron mines to keep the TMM factories smoothly (and producing the replacement armor that allowed the Taurians to repair their damaged units); Warrior House raiding parties descended from the mountains to disrupt the Taurian supply lines, attempting to keep the Chasseurs off balance long enough for House Ma-Tsu Kai to fully assemble their forces outside of the narrow pass up to the Acropolis without the Taurians being able to destroy them piecemeal.

Once such raiding party, combining two Ma-Tsu Kai BattleMech lances and the few surviving Eighth CRC 'Mechs and tanks that had been deployed away from Forts Brown and Carliss on 30 July, struck at a particularly robust convoy on 9 August, in a particularly ferocious ambush. The Taurians had thought to alter their usual route by using ancillary maintenance roads along the main highway's path in order to throw off the Capellan scent. Instead, they ran smack into the marauding Liao forces, who suddenly appeared out of the swirling snow nearly on top of the Taurian vanguard. The Warrior House forces adroitly wheeled their heavy and assault 'Mechs away from the main Taurian line while pinpoint long-range barrages disabled several of the Brunels the Chasseurs were escorting, even as a lance of nimble Valkyries swarmed their position. The foolhardy Cavalrymen, on the other hard, charged headlong into the Taurian forces, certain of their innate superiority over mere "Peripherats." The Chasseurs were more than happy to disabuse the arrogant nobles of this notion, who quickly faltered in the face of the withering firepower of the Taurian escorts. But all this bought the Warrior House's pair of ultra-swift Dolas the time they needed to slip through a hole in the Taurian lines and destroy the remaining Brunels before the entire Capellan force retired in good order. With some of the Brunels' cargo potentially recoverable and numerous Taurian tanks crippled by mobility damage, the Chasseur escorts elected to remain huddled around their charges rather than immediately pursuing the attackers.

Instead, the Valkyrie lance shadowed the raiders back the Ma-Tsu Kai assembly area at the foot of the long combe that led up to the Acropolis. Relaying the location back to their comrades, the Chasseurs prepared for a counterblow that would show the Warrior House just how sorely they'd underestimated Taurian resolve...

Victory!

The latest scenario got underway Thursday night, with a mixed battalion of the Warrior House trying to dislodge the remnants of Clean Kill from an old corporate DropPort to clear an LZ for the rest of the Warrior House, so they can redeploy and break the siege of Fort Brown. It's...not going well. The Capellans are getting hammered by the mercs' artillery, while trying to ford the trench that surrounds most of the DropPort's perimeter. Hopefully I can still pull out a win, but I suspect it's going to be very bloody.

Turns out my suspicions were entirely correct. The artillery is kicking the absolute shit out of the Capellans. Fortunately, one of their two spotters is down and the other was knocked prone, and I've got my air-cav BA vectoring toward their mobile Snipers, but still, I get the feeling that if this ends up in the win column, it'll be a Pyrrhic victory at best.

I have newfound respect for Clean Kill. They have been far and away more formidable than I ever anticipated. Alternatively, maybe I just suck? Anyway, reinforcements have been called in. The remains of Clean Kill have fallen back in good order and are digging in for another round of slug-outs, but the numbers are beginning to tell.

I wrapped up this game Thursday night, and then Friday I got T-boned while at work and have spent the weekend recovering from a pretty gnarly concussion. Gonna take a crack at doing the write-up today but no promises.

I'm working on the write-up at the moment, and I've come to a tough decision. One of the prisoners the Warrior House took is Moon Tanaka, the highest-ranking officer of the turncoat Home Guard. But I can't decide if the Warrior House would keep her in order to hand over to the Mask for processing (she might be an extremely valuable intel source), or just execute her for betraying the Lorix Order and the Chancellor.

Let the Mask squeeze her dry, and then execute her.

Have the Mask (and the Warrior House) tell her that if she doesn´t cooperate to the fullest extent with her Mask interrogators, they will hand her over to the Warrior House for execution. No need to tell her that they have every intention to hand her over anyway once she is of no more use to them.

EN PASSANT

TMM Cargo DropPort 21-Gamma, The Ring Knuckle
Laconis, Victoria Commonality
Capellan Confederation
12 August 3145


While the Red Chasseurs further invested themselves around Fort Brown and mobilized a detachment to assault the Warrior House's assembly area, the Capellans were already on the move. Deploying far faster than Taurian planners had anticipated, they sortied an entire augmented battalion before the Chasseurs could move to hit them at the base of the Bronze Combe, the narrow mountain valley that led down from the Acropolis. Led by Lien-zhang Viktor Luschik, the Capellans vectored in on a private DropPort owned by Tauris Majoris Mining, which was also the current base of Clean Kill. They aimed to finally knock the mercenaries out of the conflict once and for all, removing the wild card they had thus far represented from the table.

Unfortunately for the Capellans, Taurian scouts spotted their force en route and warned Clean Kill. When the Warrior House troops arrived, they found the mercs dug in with trenches, artillery and 'Mech-scale defensive earthworks. Lien-zhangs Luschik and Wei took their companies into the teeth of the defenders, drawing their attention. Once they were fully engaged, at bloody cost to the Warrior House, the infamous assault company Jana's Revenge struck with a flanking maneuver that drove the mercenaries out of position, their trademark trio of imposing Yu Huang assault 'Mechs leading the vanguard. Simultaneously, the VTOLs of Lien-zhang Cristobal Hong swung around the line of battle to hit their opponents' artillery, discharging over thirty Amazon battlesuits onto the nearly defenseless Snipers and Catapults and raining a hail of missile and laser fire on them from their Aerons and Yashas.

Clean Kill refused to go down without a fight: the hardscrabble mercs fell back to a second set of prepared positions, forcing the Capellans to dig them out. But they were outnumbered and outgunned, and with their artillery out of commission, defeat was inevitable. After Captain Minka Synek's Griffin was brought down by swarming Ying Long battlesuits, the last few mercenaries powered down and surrendered. Among the captured was the treasonous Home Guard Zhong-shao, Moon Tanaka, whose Thunder had been one of the last BattleMechs to fall. She was turned over to the Warrior House's Maskirovka contingent, who would undoubtedly find her a valuable source of intelligence on the Taurian invaders.

With the DropPort in hand, the Capellans were now in a position to launch the final offensive to break the siege of Fort Brown. However, much would depend on the outcome of the battle no doubt already playing out, as Red Chasseurs tanks and BattleMechs moved to cut off the only approach to the Acropolis...

It's a bit more labor intensive, but I hope y'all enjoy the new format I'm using that seeks to preserve the awesome work the MegaMek team has done in creating such vivid victory screens with the addition of the damaged unit sprites.

Alright, I'm putting together the opfor for the next scenario. It's going to be two Red Chasseurs 'Mech companies, which I've already selected, backed by a tank company, which I'm having trouble deciding on. Here's the Taurian 'Mech portion of the force:

1st Company
Mad Dog Mk. IV
Warhammer IIC 8
Rifleman IIC 8
Mad Cat III

Yu Huang Y-H9G
Yu Huang Y-H9G
Banshee BNC-3Mr
Banshee BNC-3Mr

Griffin GRF-4N
Griffin GRF-4N
Phoenix Hawk PXH-4W
Phoenix Hawk PXH-4W


2nd Company
Grand Titan T-IT-N11M
Warhammer WHM-6Rb
Archer ARC-6W
Archer ARC-6W

Black Hawk
Black Hawk
Black Hawk
Black Hawk


Valkyrie VLK-QT2
Valkyrie VLK-QT2
Valkyrie VLK-QT2
Valkyrie VLK-QT2

So the first question is, for the armor company to accompany them, do I go tracked, hover or VTOL?

For reference, I'm going to be using the 64x68 map titled 'Colt Ward Pass' in MegaMek.

I might say a mix of hover and VTOL, like a cavalry-type unit? Looks like the 'Mech companies can put holes into anything in front of them, though these only have the Valks as a dedicated scouting/screening element. If the TDF commander is going to use his 'Mechs as the main thrust, I'd assume they'd want to pad out their pickets and flank units to limit any Capellan shenanigans while all those expensive 'Mechs do their thing.

EDIT: Plus, it would be fluffy if this is a reaction force trying to head off any Capellan relief of the TDF siege.

I think this makes a lot of sense -- so I'm gonna take half a dozen VTOLs and half a dozen hovertanks from the 12th Armor Cavalry's Third Battalion to form a couple of ad hoc platoons.
