Game Namebattletech: routine maneuvers
Game SystemFATE
Themecombat-heavy, giant mechs
Flavourglory, adrenaline rush
Plot SummaryThe year is 3025 and the fresh lance of the crystal bat company is on routine maneuvers on the planet typhon. Little do they know, they are not alone. soon, the hammer will fall and the lance will struggle against odds undreamed of. will they prevail, or will they be crushed to powder under the might of a mercenary army?

im looking for four players total to play a group of mechwarriors. i already got one, so three slots left

here is the conversion document for battletech to fate

I am very interested in something so combat centric

But my experience with the mechwarrior franchise and battletech in general is very limited. Do you have any suggestions for games/ other media to get me up to speed?

Oddly, for the number of BT games, only the original MechWarrior and MechWarrior 5 mentioned above are set in the 3025 period.

Catalyst does have a primer (PDF doc) to get you up to speed on the state of the Inner Sphere in 3025.

For further reading, I heartily endorse Stackpole's Warrior novel trilogy (En Garde, Riposte, and Coupee))

Call sign "Buster". Which is shortened from "Blockbuster".

No, it's backstory related. Although a MechWarrior character piloting a Stalker is on my bucket list, but this conversion really seems to favor light units. The only way to increase heat capacity is to use an XL engine (wut?), which won't be available for another 10 years. Without the heat capacity to use them, all those extra guns are just dead weight.

we're gonna play a game of make-believe and say that XL engines do exist. that alright by you?

if you prefer not to track heat stress, you can get a free invoke on a roll, an then take a heat-related aspect with one free invoke against you. that aspect lingers until i use it or until you roll to remove it
