Touring the Stars: Granada
Price: $2.99 (PDF Only)

Granada: called “The Pumpkin” by everyone but its inhabitants, this oblate planet is probably the fastest-spinning world settled by humanity. Like other worlds of the Nueva Castilian cluster, it is water-rich and very compatible with terrestrial life, allowing humans to thrive.

Granada has seen key events in Castilian history: the collapse of its original central government, the invasion of refugees from the Clan worlds, and the birth of the Umayyads. The Seekers of Clan Goliath Scorpion have delved into this history, answering burning questions of the Umayyads’ mysterious origins.

Touring the Stars is a whistle-stop tour of the universe! Every system and planet where mankind treads in the BattleTech universe has a story, for those with the drive to explore it. Take a tour of the stars humanity now calls home, experience awesome new worlds, immerse yourself in the local civilization, and prepare to do battle in exotic locales.
