On April 1, 2021
Honoring one of our favorite traditions, we’re proud to offer two all-new April Fool’s Day 2021 products!
Experimental Technical Readout: Caveat Emptor was originally created in honor of Line Developer Ray Arrastia’s birthday, offering a selection of…unique…BattleMechs that you’re going to want to take the extended warranty on. Meanwhile, BattleTech Adventures: Escape from Castle Wulfensteiner is an RPG module unlike any other, compatible with both the A Time of War and the MechWarrior: Destiny systems.
Finally, we’ve got a very real new novel for you–the second and final part of Michael Ciaravella’s Highlander Covenant duology: Paid in Blood–be sure to check out that sweet cover!
Experimental Technical Readout: Caveat Emptor
After Gray Monday, the Republic has descended into a new Dark Age, ploughshares are being turned back into swords, and the jackals are feeding on the confusion. The desperate need for weapons of new militaries arising everywhere sees mundane machines strapped with outlandish weapons, flamboyant arena ’Mechs returning to the battlefield, and renowned manufacturers engaging in uncharacteristic experimental gambles. It is a seller’s market; anything goes and no price is too high. Caveat emptor—the dust will settle quicker on your new acquisition’s battlefield debut than on the transaction that got you there. You won’t have time for buyer’s remorse.
Experimental Technical Readout: Caveat Emptor samples production and prototype machines that have earnt infamy after Gray Monday as inefficient monstrosities sold to the highest bidder. Each unit featured in this book incorporates some of the new technologies that debuted in Tactical Operations (or quirks found in the BattleMech Manual)—now employed on battlefields of brush wars on former Republic worlds. Statistics and Record Sheets are included for 13 new advanced and experimental BattleMechs, ready for play in advanced BattleTech games.

BattleTech Adventures: Escape from Castle Wulfensteiner
“Someone’s Alive Down There!”The Inner Sphere may be going to hell in a handbasket, but you are your team managed to land a gig far from the swirling chaos. Protecting a DropShip-load of Deep Periphery explorers picking over remnants of the long-lost Rim Worlds Republic may not be glamorous or exciting, but it pays well enough.
Then came the strange transmission from the latest destination—a dry, dusty, poisonous world in the middle of nowhere:
“Hail, unidentified vessel! You have entered Star League Imperial airspace without a recognized flight plan! Please declare yourselves and your intentions at once!”
BattleTech Adventures: Escape from Castle Wulfensteiner takes players to the forgotten worlds of the Deep Periphery, in search of mysteries lost to time and treachery. After three years of exploring, the search has finally come to SLSC A8V.24881. Escape from Castle Wulfensteiner includes a guide to this desolate world, personal biographies on several key players, and adventure Tracks designed for use with A Time of War: The BattleTech Role-Playing Game, A Time of War Companion, and MechWarrior: Destiny, as well as special rules and Record Sheets for key non-player characters and facilities unique to this story.
Paid in Blood: The Highlander Covenant, Book Two (of Two)
Print-on-Demand: Coming Soon!
NO PRICE TOO HIGH…
On the besieged planet of Northwind, the Highlanders are fighting a tenacious invading force from the Capellan Confederation, led by a regiment from the legendary McCarron’s Armored Calvary, with support from Warrior House Imarra.
The first round went to the Capellans, who seized the city of Tara and the invaluable HPG located within it. But their position is precarious with the revelation of the Grey Watch, a legendary Highlanders fighting force that revealed itself when Northwind was in danger of falling, and turned what could have been an all out Capellan victory into an uneasy stalemate.
The arrival of a Draconis Combine fleet, recent allies of the Confederation, shifts the balance even further. Will the reinforced Capellan force finally bring Northwind back under the rule of the Celestial Throne, or will Countess Tara Campbell, Captain Declan Casey, and Knight of the Republic Maeve Stirling find a way to lead the embattled Highlanders to victory?
