Tamar Rising Now Available in Print and PDF!:
Silence falls across the Jade Falcon border, and slowly, reports reach Lyran space: the Clan’s warriors, so long a threat to the Steiner realm, are gone. Powerful ambitions rush to fill the vacuum that follows. Former Clan citizens both recently assimilated and long conquered grapple with a future no longer defined by the will of the Falcon warriors. An Arcturan general dissatisfied with Tharkad’s ineffective rule forges her own destiny. A Clan denied the glory of Terra redefines itself through battle and conquest. And a mercenary unleashes her reborn command to claim vengeance for past calamities.

Tamar Rising is a BattleTech sourcebook providing full details of the events in the former Clan Jade Falcon Occupation Zone from 3151 to mid-3152. Included are a full historical summary of events in that region of space, personality and unit profiles of key players—many appearing here for the first time, and game information to bring it all to your BattleTech tabletop.

Note: This zip file contains two PDFs. The first is the book itself. The second is the Campaign Map, which with the physical book is a 26” x 38”, double-sized, laminated poster.

    Intended to emulate the Thor OmniMech used by the Clans, the Thanatos is an incredibly
    sturdy and hard-hitting design.
    After producing OmniMechs licensed from the Draconis Combine-based Luthien Armor Works for
    several years, and manufacture of parts and supplies for the TharHes Nomad, StarCorps
    Industries gained a sufficient understanding of OmniMech technology to begin designing their
    own OmniMechs and OmniVehicles in 3059. The Thanatos is the first design of this type they
    have created, and certainly offers stiff competition to the clan design. Adopted into AFFS
    and LCAF service in 3060, the Thanatos is earmarked for hard hitting front line formations
    and mercenary forces.

    The TNS-XOC is a long range sniper for a C3 equipped lance. An LB 5-X Autocannon and an
    ERPPC provide long range fire support, while a trio of medium lasers blows away anything
    that gets close.
