Site Patched to 2.23.10:
Pushed some more fixes and errata updates out last night. Details of what's included are as follows:

  • Fixed an issue with BattleMechs where BV calculations and AS conversions were potentially incorrect for units with Fuel Cell or Internal Combustion engines.
  • Fixed an issue where AS conversions were incorrect for units that jumped and also had Modular Armor.
  • Fixed an issue where units did not receive armor specials during AS conversion if they also had Modular Armor.
  • Fixed an issue where the AS conversion was not assigning the Brawler ability to units with a damage value of 0* at short and/or medium range and 0 at long range.
  • Fixed an issue where the MASH special was not being properly assigned during AS conversions.
  • Updated the weapon heat for the ER Large Laser (Prototype) from 18 (for AS conversions) and 13 (for BV calculations) to 15.
  • Updated AS conversions so the C3 Emergency Master now receives the MHQ2 special.

NOTE: Any forces or units impacted by the above fixes and/or changes have had their stats recalculated to ensure accuracy.

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.
