    23rd Century Productions, LLC is leasing the game from the prior producer, SSDC, Inc. As such we have a finite timespan to produce the product, which necessitated obtaining fund earlier in the development process than we would have liked. To offset the delay in providing the 7th edition, many of the pledge levels int he Kickstarter receive PDF versions of the 6th edition core rules and sourcebooks. So most of our backers will receive something to get them started within a month of the Kickstarter ending, to tide them over until 7th edition ships.

    The ??? Was supposed to be a smiley. I meant your post looks like the campaign is running until 2019

  • Avatar Image battlelordsrpg2p said 2 months ago:

    The game is cool too! You should check it out! We have a lot of wargamers that play it. The armor mechanics along with the ability to tailor your suit and weapon mix to exploit weak areas in your opponent’s defensive systems gives the game a very wargame feel.
