Experimental Tech Readout: Phantoms, and other PDFs, Now Available!
On October 18, 2012
For as long as military forces and governments have employed them, special forces and other covert operations units have employed the latest, and most advanced technologies available to give them an edge in combat. The fires of the Jihad have been no exception. Employing a mix of the most radical technologies in stealth, electronics, and advanced weaponry, the elite shadow warriors from across the Inner Sphere continue to do battle with some of the most cutting edge BattleMechs, vehicles, and battlesuits that money can buy—all optimized for the deadliest of “black ops” missions.
Experimental Tech Readout: Phantoms samples a number of high-technology designs developed for use by elite covert operatives and special military forces found throughout the Inner Sphere in the late-Jihad period. Each design featured in this book demonstrates the advanced and experimental technologies found in Tactical Operations. Statistics and Record Sheets are included for 13 BattleMechs, vehicles, aerospace units, and battlesuits presented in this book, ready for play in advanced BattleTech games.

Heroes, patriots, soldiers, freedom fighters. The universe is full of them, and every realm and military force—from the mightiest Successor State to the humblest mercenary band—has its share. Feared across the Inner Sphere, the enigmatic Bounty Hunter and his lance of MechWarriors prowl the battlefields of the universe for the most dangerous of prey. Their deadly calling has carried on for generations, and even the dawning years of the Jihad were no exception.
Dossiers: The Bounty Hunter Lance describes the notable MechWarriors who served alongside the Bounty Hunter during the early Jihad era, highlighting the abilities of these warriors and their machines, both on and off the battlefields of the 31st century. This Lance Pack dossier file provides players with the background and descriptions of all four members of the Hunter’s lance and a micro-campaign based on their Jihad exploits, complete with character and BattleMech record sheets suitable for play with Total Warfare and A Time of War: The BattleTech RPG.

Rendered mostly barren through centuries of warfare, the world of Antallos is dotted with death zones, long-lost treasure troves of Star League technology, and city-states that once vied for rulership. The rise of Vance Rezak and his Band of the Damned stabilized the ancient pirate haven, creating a power base of terror along the Combine and Alliance borders.
Then came Clan Snow Raven. Their arrival sparked a war that pitted the recently-arrived Clan against dug-in pirates and their new Word of Blake allies. Short and brutal, the conflict forever altered the balance of power in the Periphery.
Historical Turning Points: Antallos looks at the pivotal conflict that removed an ancient pirate haven and ushered the Ravens to the Inner Sphere. Return to BattleTech’s recent past, where pirates and Blakists fought together to keep a Clan from perching along the Inner Sphere’s quietest border.
This campaign series uses the Chaos Campaign rules and gives players the option of fighting individual battles, following a campaign arc, or inserting it into their own campaigns. This PDF exclusive includes a detailed map of the planet of Antallos, a rundown of the forces involved in the conflict, and several tracks that players can use to recreate the entire violent conflict on Antallos. Only the players’ imaginations are the limits.
