Nearly fifteen years have passed since the end of the Word of Blake Jihad and the rise of the Republic of the Sphere. Yet even as the Inner Sphere adjusts to a new sense of normalcy, questions remain about whether the Blakist threat is gone for good or merely hibernating.
Once a disorganized collective of hobbyists and academics backed by the idle wealthy, Interstellar Expeditions has emerged from the fires of war to take up the mission once claimed by ComStar’s Explorer Corps: to search for the elusive hiding places where humanity’s enemies might have gone. From the dead worlds within the borders of the Inner Sphere itself, to the distant, uncharted reaches of the Deep Periphery, IE relentlessly searches for the answers to mysteries dating back to mankind’s first ventures into deep space, while simultaneously watching for any sign of the zealots who so recently waged the most horrendous interstellar war in modern history.
Interstellar Expeditions: Interstellar Players 3 describes the organization and efforts of Interstellar Expeditions as it continues to search within (and beyond) human-occupied space in the BattleTech universe. First introduced in Interstellar Players, IE’s operations have now gone truly universal, seeking answers and treasures not only from the lost and forgotten worlds of humanity’s distant past, but also the distant colonies and civilizations that have risen—and even fallen—beyond the boundaries of the Inner Sphere. Gamemasters and players can decide which of these groups and discoveries may actually bear fruit, and which are the misdirections left behind by the surviving leaders of the Blakist war machine. Whether from this sourcebook or the gamemaster’s own imagination, these discoveries can become the ultimate villain, ally, or unique new setting for any type of BattleTech campaign!

After the fall of the first Star League and the exodus of the SLDF, the five Great Houses of the Inner Sphere unleashed their armies against one another with a vengeance, each claiming to be the rightful heirs to the Cameron legacy and the First Lordship of the Inner Sphere. Their scorched earth tactics left entire worlds barren, and destroyed many of the precious technologies taken for granted during the golden days of the Star League’s peak. As the years stretched into centuries, their great navies evaporated, and even their mighty BattleMech armies shrank and regressed as their advanced weapons and equipment failed and were forgotten.
Yet even as the Inner Sphere slid toward scavenger tech, the various powers of the Inner Sphere struggled to hone their edge with whatever remained, hoping to turn the tide of the endless Succession Wars with some new innovation their enemies might not have considered.
Experimental Tech Readout: Succession Wars, Volume 1 samples some of the desperate technological experiments that the war-ravaged powers of the Inner Sphere tinkered with during the post-Star League Succession Wars period. Each design featured in this book demonstrates the combination of regressing post-Star League technology levels on the BattleMechs, combat vehicles, and aerospace units that followed. Statistics and Record Sheets are included for 14 BattleMechs, vehicles, aerospace units presented in this book, ready for play in advanced BattleTech games.
