Catalyst Game Lab’s Been Busy With Battle Tech

May 31, 2011 by dracs

Catalyst Game Labs have been busy lately bringing out a new load of downloadable pdf supplements and even two novels for their Battle Tech game. First of the two pdf supplements available is Battle Tech Era Report: 3062

This supplement focuses on a period of Battle Tech history known as the Clan Invasion and allows player to base campaigns, battles and forces around the time period.

The book serves as an overview of the time period, detailing the notable figures, battles and the technology of the period. This supplement is without doubt a must for any dedicated Battle Tech fan.

Alongside this is the supplement Historical Turning Points Mallory’s world.

Mallory’s World also delves into the history of the Battle Tech background, although not on as grand a scale as Era Report.

Set in the events of the Third Succession War, Mallory’s World focuses upon the animosity between the Great Houses of Davion and Kurita, using the Chaos Campaign rules to allow players to recreate the battles for House Davion’s Mallory’s World.

The supplements are the perfect way to expand your existing games of Battle Tech, as well as allowing you a greater insight into the background. But if your thirst for Battle Tech narrative has not been quenched than you should turn to the two novels which have been released.

We present Grave Covenant by Michael A. Stackpole,

and D.R.T. by James D. Long.

Both of these novels are now available to download and I personally am considering getting them onto my Kindle as soon as they are available from Amazon.

So what do you think of these? If you have used any of these supplements or read wither of these novels we would love to hear what you think.
