XTRO: Primitives Vol 3, and Other PDFs Available!
On November 7, 2012
Before there was even a Star League, the technologies taken for granted in the thirty-first century went through their awkward paces in a universe newly opened to humankind. In an age when the BattleMech was nearly unknown, when the DropShip was a new concept, and when tanks and fighters dominated the battle zones, the technology of the day was primitive by modern standards…and each new design with an experiment unto itself.
Experimental Tech Readout: Primitives, Volume 3 samples more of the early technology designs that dominated the universe of BattleTech during the pre-Star League Age of War period. Each design featured in this book demonstrates the primitive technology level of the first generation of BattleMechs, the last generation of Combat Vehicles (before the ’Mech supplanted them), and the low-tech aerospace units that flew above them. Although many were ultimately upgraded to “modern standards” and shown in Technical Readout: 3075, the units featured here reflect these designs as they were when first introduced to the universe they fought for. Statistics and Record Sheets are included for 14 Primitive BattleMechs, vehicles, aerospace units presented in this book, ready for play in advanced BattleTech games.

Since the coming of the Clans, the military, industrial, and command complexes of the Inner Sphere have raced against the invaders—and each other—to out-produce one another in battle-worthy manpower and materiel. Factories that were smashed in the Succession Wars were reborn and revitalized, churning out ever more cutting-edge equipment, while academies expanded their curriculums and sent generations of fresh warriors into battle.
At the pinnacle of the arms race, new wars erupted, first against the Clans, and then between the Great Houses and Periphery states of the Inner Sphere. In the fires of the Word of Blake Jihad, destruction reached a level not seen since the early Succession Wars…but the stricken realms persevered.
Objectives: Free Worlds League describes the state of the major factories, training centers, and command centers of House Marik’s Free Worlds League in the wake of the events described in Jihad Hot Spots: Terra. Including detailed stats on every key system within the realm, this supplement also includes basic rules to help guide players in developing BattleTech scenarios focused on defending—or attacking—these critical sites.

For years, the bitter rivalry between the warriors of the Wolf Clan and the Jade Falcons simmered. Then in June of 3057, growing political tensions among the fearsome invaders erupted in a bloody war of attrition. From the mountains of Colmar to the icy wasteland of Morges, the armies of these ancient enemies clashed in a dramatic duel to the death.
The Falcon and the Wolf is a BattleTech scenario pack that describes the epic Trial of Refusal between the Wolf and Jade Falcon Clans described in the BattleTech novel Bred for War. Filled with historical notes and personal accounts of the trial, game scenarios and special Clan rules, The Falcon and the Wolf provides everything the BattleTech player needs to recreate the battles of this major intraClan conflict.
