About the adventure

The year is 3069. Clan Snow Raven, fresh off of successfully defending their homeworld of Lum, has turned its attention to its interests in the Inner Sphere. Following successful raids on worlds controlled by the Draconis Combine, Clan Snow Raven seeks to maintain its momentum by claiming several worlds along the border between the Outworlds Alliance and the Combine. With the Draconis Combine's attention focused on the conflicts erupting in response to aggression from the Word of Blake, Snow Raven military leaders seize the opportunity to strike. Recognizing the potential to reclaim territory from the Draconis Combine, the Outworlds Alliance agrees to commit forces in a limited but strategic capacity, reinforcing and supporting Snow Raven's assault. You have been chosen, by either Clan Snow Raven or the Alliance Military Corps, to play a minor role in the conquest, but as they say - no plan survives contact with the enemy. With depleted resources and minimal support, you must accomplish your objectives and do what you can to ensure the success of the campaign, while navigating Clan politics and Inner Sphere intrigues. Power up your 'Mech, warm up your weapons, and prepare to prove that what you are made of... Solid Mettle! ================================================================ This game will focus heavily on role-playing, in addition to high-caliber Battlemech action! Using the FATE system does mean that some of the crunchiness of the Battletech wargame rules will be lost, but great care has been taken to retain the essence and nuance of being a MechWarrior in the far future. This campaign should serve as an excellent entry point to Battletech for those new to the universe, and should offer a fresh new take on the universe for veterans of the Star League!
