Technical Readout: Irregulars
Price: $29.99, Print-on-Demand with PDF included; $14.99, PDF only
“The lions are those who managed to take the grid down, while the jackals are feeding on the resulting confusion.”
Fall of 3134. After decades of peace and prosperity, interstellar communications broke down two years ago and conflict is sweeping through the Republic of the Sphere. As ancient hatreds and rivalries rear their ugly heads, people who have only known war through history books are suddenly thrust into the dark maelstrom of combat. Splinter factions have arisen, aligning themselves with fealties long thought forgotten, and stalking each other on Republic worlds like jackals. Often lacking military-grade equipment, these groups and defending militias deploy SecurityMechs, Support Vehicles, or even modified civilian machinery in their desperate struggle to prevail.
Technical Readout: Irregulars unveils the weapons deployed during the chaos after Gray Monday when paramilitaries warred in the Republic’s outer Prefectures. Technical Readout: Irregulars debuts the production and custom machines used by the the splinter faction in 3132 and the following years. Statistics and Record Sheets are included for 25 new IndustrialMech MODs, Security- and MilitiaMechs, support vehicles, and their variants ready for play.

Era Digest: Dark Age
Price: $14.99, Print-on-Demand with PDF included; $9.95, PDF only
1 August 3132. On that day, eighty percent of the hyperpulse generators throughout the Inner Sphere fell silent and humanity’s communications link across the stars was severed. While many looked to the Republic of the Sphere for guidance through the darkness, others used the crisis to advance their own agendas and political ideologies. As a new era began, old hatreds and rivalries, long suppressed in the optimism of Stone’s Peace, threatened to overwhelm all that had been achieved in the new century.
A Dark Age had fallen, one that would see the death of empires and the rise of tyrants. And the seeds of destruction would be planted in these first days after the Blackout.
Era Digest: Dark Age is a mini-sourcebook that explores the pivotal developments in the immediate aftermath of the HPG Blackout, giving players a glimpse at early reactions to the crisis and the rise of the splinter factions fighting to take advantage of the chaos. Complete with rules and stats for several Dark Age units, Era Digest: Dark Age also features role-playing support for this crucial setting in BattleTech history!

Lost Destiny: Blood of Kerensky, Vol. 3
$13.95, Print-on-Demand via Amazon
THE FINAL ASSAULT…
The Clans. Warriors bred for battle and mated to fantastic war machines, Clansmen live for victory and pray for death before defeat.
Invaders from beyond the Periphery, the Clans have beaten the forces of the Inner Sphere repeatedly. Now the Clans are driving toward their ultimate objective—Terra, cradle of humankind, and hub of the ComStar communications network.
Nothing the Inner Sphere has can stop them. The heir to the throne of the Draconis Combine is missing. Whole regiments of BattleMechs lie smashed like abandoned toys. Rasalhague is overrun. The Clans are sweeping toward the center of the known universe in a relentless tide.
Humanity’s only hope is the Inner Sphere’s most powerful traitor. ComStar betrayed the Inner Sphere by aiding the Clans in their conquests. Now the mystic sect that controls all interstellar communication must face the Clan hordes—alone. And a mysterious, elderly warrior—along with the untested warriors of ComStar—is the Inner Sphere’s last defense against total defeat.

Technical Readout: Vehicle Annex Revised
Available for the first time in print!
MechWarriors receive all the glory; aerospace fighters are a close second; vehicles are considered the workhorses of any military; infantry are even given their day in the sun in the minds of the common citizen. But no battle could be waged, nor won, without the mammoth apparatus of support vehicles that feed the war machine of the Great Houses. From cargo trucks to tanker airships, airborne MASH to communications satellites, armored transport rails to coastal patrol boats, hauler exoskeletons to AgroMechs, even hover and wheeled police cruisers or civilian vehicles conscripted to the military: the support vehicle is the true backbone of any military machine.
Built using the construction rules in TechManual and Tactical Operations, Technical Readout: Vehicle Annex Revised Edition provides a never-before-seen look at the support vehicles behind the militaries of every faction, as well as a slice of daily life in the BattleTech® universe. This revised edition has been updated with an overview of the Jihad and Republic era, up to 3084, covering its effects on support vehicle production and various efforts to use them as weapons of war.
Recognition Guide: ilClan Vol. 13 through Vol. 18
The third cycle of Recognition Guide: ilClan starts Friday, April 9 and continues every other week through Friday, June 18.
