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?
Bienheureux vous qui pleurez maintenant car vous serez dans la joie
Bienheureux si les Hommes vous haïssent
S'ils vous frappent d'exclusion
Et s'ils insultent et proscrivent votre nom comme un blâme
A cause du fils de l'autre
Et tressaillez d'allégresse
Car votre récompense
Sera grande dans le cieeeeeeel

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?

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