So, Randis was destined to lose the HIW facility? Are you in liberty of explaining Randis role in the enw narrative line? I have noted an increase of small tidbits and references toRandis in the late products.

Since that storyline was canceled, sure.

It was going to be a reveal in the Dark Age showed Randis helping out the Republic from Randis, nothing major at first, but then as time went on dumping all their resources into assisting the Republic in their sphere as it was slowly discovered that the Republic had been behind the funding and expertise to build Hope MechWorks and they had become beholden to the Republic as a client state.

Interesting. We know that the RoTS was trying to influence the region helping the Calderon Protectorate (and Fronc IIRC), but the thing about the RoTS helping the FoR is very interesting. It could explain how they upgraded HIW from primitive to introductory tech. But i still wonder how the BoR could have helped the RoTS. One of the Battalions going to Fortress Republic? Giving a place for the Fidelis to train?

Et tressaillez d'allégresse

Operations to distract the enemies of the Republic and their allies (basically the Combine and Ravens). They would also be pushing Republic ideals and other agendas.

Quite intriguing. I can see the Knights taking a anti-merc stance and supporting the "sword to plowshares" program of the RoTS to take mechs from individuals. Why it was that line discarted?

Well, we had a change of management.

Was this when Ben Rome left the Assistant  Line Developer role, or when Brent Evans took the Line Developer post?

So, if anyone noticed it, the Brotherhood had some Brothers mentioned in the "Notable Mechs and Mechwarrios" section in the new Recognition Guides, apparently related to a incoming Lance Scarinci work and his "Black Marauder".

First, the eponymous "Black marauder" from Marauder, Kindred Soul and Ravager entry ( in RecGuide #6) mentions Brother Perseus Schell and his personal quest to destroy the infernal machine.

Then we have the poor Brothers Aaron and Thaddeus MacEoghan. Both went to Novo Franklin looking for the atrocities committed by the diabolic machine, but only a crazed Brother Aaron returned, rambling of a "Dark One". No one knows what happened to Brother MacEoghan and his Valkyrie. (RecGuide #9)

Next is Brother Perseus Schell properly, and his personal Archer ride. Looks like Brother Schell is a scholar in anything related to Peripheric legends and strange sightings, even if that endeavour makes him the source of good-natured amusement between his fellow Brothers. (RecGuide # 10)
 
Now, we have a very interesting situation, as apparently the Raven Alliance is strengthening its ties to the Brotherhood, and recently a Clan Watch agent, Star Commander Lucien Clearwater, helped the Brotherhood with his White Raven on a strike against Tortuga. (RecGuide #12)

As a final point, somewhat related to Brother Schell quest, it appears that the Raven Alliance is also suffering the existence of the Black marauder, as it appears to be the culprit of the disappearance of a whole Star in a system three jumps from Valasha. (RecGuide #3)

They do have a common interest to fight piracy and against Tortuga. Perhaps the Brotherhood should end that pirate's nest by slowly conquering it and bringing enlightenment to the population.

Well, you had Operation TRIDENT in 3129, when the Calderon Protectorade, the Brotherhood and Filtvelt began attacked multiple planets of the Tortuga Dominion. The largest battle was in New Port Royal, were the FoR 1st Battalion, and a battalion of the Second Taurian Pride and Thumpers Assault Regiment got into the planet, and had to defend against 8 pirate battalion (i presume that mixed ones).

It's strange the AFFS nor Raven Alliance/Alliance Military Corps units didn't join in that operation. It would be a good deployment for one or two AFFS LCTs.

It seems Tortuga needs a "cleansing" every now and then. Or just colonizing and establishing a stable administration.

Oh yes, Tortuga needs a good cleasing, togheter with the Pirate Cluster. The thing is with the whole IlClan coming, i dont think any of the big, or not so big, boys will have interest in cleaning the place when they can be getting a piece of the RoTS, or getting their land back in the case of the FS.

I can see the Taurians attacking the Pirate Cluster as a way to cement their reunion.

Well the cluster was originally part of the Concordat so it would be a case of reclaiming part of the original Concordat.

Yeah, it would be a nice "ralling call" for the new Taurian Concordat.

But during that Trident operation the AFFS was still relatively idle. It would have been a good chance to help clean the pirates out :)

Yeah. Eliminate that nest and rename it the Badlands Cluster. This was one of the original Star League's mistakes.

That was during Harrison´s rulership, so yes, the AFFS we smoking lotus petals at that time, confident that their RoTS daddy will protect them.
