About the adventure

This will be a game exploring one of the era's in battletech from Star league's (2005 - 2780) The Succession Wars (2781 - 3049) Clan Invasion (3050 - 30 61) Civil War (3062 - 3067) Jihad (3068 - 3080) Dark Age (3081 + ----) All have a relevant story and come with their own parameters of play some of the most fun ones being klan Invasion . In this we will select a setting your most interested in and decide the focus of them game via the wonderful "combined arm" system generator built into the battletech system from being a plucky ground infantry fighter to being a fullblown Mechwarrior. By determining the type of characters you want and their given roles then we can move on to the character creation and development phase from doing either the life modules which help so shape a template of how your character will play and give story beats and RP hooks for you to snag your teeth into or by using the fully customizable XP system then building your own narrative for those characters. from their we can then take are first steps into the setting background of your choice with the narrative system taking hold and offering you your first taste of the wonderful and excitingly grity and real world of battletech!!!

Additional Details

How to prepare

Highly Highly recommend to take a look at the rules before hand this can all be found free online by looking up (A Time of War) and get some handle on the lore or the general affairs of what battletech is. However A mic will be required and access to tabletop simulator, having a character already made would be awesome but most likely will need some adjusting as the given character age determines a lot of the their abilities and talents at the start of the game.

What I provide

I will have tons of assets though tabletop sim to run the game so no worries about needing too much in ways of needing tools of any kind besides those mentioned however I will have all the rule books which are all free online so if your curious about a given rule you can always be free to look them up. all the mapping and details of minis and such are handled by table top but I do some 3d modeling and some drawing so I can have minis made and added to tabletop for you as well and if you have art you want to use as well.

Gameplay details

This can range alot dependent on choices but all options in the battletech rules are available in term of exploring the galactic political spheres to doing the simplest work of writing up reports for their mech lost right arm armor plate!! But typically will follow the lines of having given story points form npc's and then having the character react in those roles and complete objectives and skill checks related by by rolling in the 2d6 system. From their usings the action report system built into the system of battletech they will be rewarded after ever time they complete the different phases of the game!!
