Battletech the long surviving game from Catalyst Game Labs, that pits mechs against mechs has a couple of new Technical Readouts available to upgrade your machines of war and cry havoc upon your enemy. The first book is Technical Readout 3145 and the narrative is this:
“The great experiment that was the Republic of the Sphere has failed. Withdrawn behind the Fortress walls, the once-great power has become a silent, opaque remnant of its former glory. Without its influence, old hatreds have risen anew.
As war once more rages across the Inner Sphere, new equipment strides across ancient battlefields. Technology, once stagnated by trade restrictions and peace treaties, now surges forward again, testing these new machines in the fierce crucible of war.”
This book gives you access to all the upgrades available for the Republic Armed Forces and will make them a tough opponent for anyone to face against.
The second book, Technical Readout 3150 gives the players a look into technology in the twilight years before the Dark Age Era of the Inner Sphere. This one has all the interesting tidbits and information to make any mech commander happy.
“War has spread across the Inner Sphere, shattering and shifting alliances both old and new. As the Clans once more close in on humanity’s homeworld of Terra, the walls of Fortress have come down, revealing the return of Devlin Stone.
Desperate for any edge, the Great Houses, Clans, and Periphery states of the Inner Sphere have unleashed a flood of new war machines, rushing them into battle on every front.”
This game still has a place of reverence in our household and our youngest Benny, plays this for hours at Adepticon. It is the classic mech game and the foundation of many.
Have you played Battletech lately?
