Battletech: The Dark Age (A Time of War)
The year is now 3134, and as the Inner Sphere continues its descent into the Dark, companies of the 12th Star Guards find themselves spread throughout the Republic's prefectures. One such company, the Black Dogs, is in the midst of defending Terra against the threat of the Steel Wolves, their services under contract to the Republic of the Sphere even as they wearily look forward to returning home.

=-=-=-=-=

Unique to our usual recruiting efforts, we're seeking active* players interested in starting as Mechwarrior Cadets at First Sword Military College, the 12th Star Guards' own military academy. Currently attending their last semester of school, Cadet players will be integrated into the current player Company at their graduation. This provides not just roleplaying opportunities for the fresh faces to experience while the Black Dogs finish their current arc, but really allows inexperienced players interested in the Battletech setting, but not well-versed in the mechanics of character creation, to get their feet wet in the setting.

The focus of this game is on character roleplay and interactions, with GM-controlled gameboard combat on the battlefield (based entirely on existing PC and 'Mech stats) that is affected by the players' actions and decisions. There are many plotlines and sub-stories woven throughout the cast, and PC actions will affect not just the present of 3134, but generations to come - Literally, as the game is planned to run for decades farther along the timeline.

* - Capable of posting at least two to three times a week.
=-=-=-=-=

Standard disclaimer: This game runs on interaction between the characters. We want active players that care about not only their plotline, but those of other characters as well. If you wish to show up once every two weeks and only interact with the GM, this is not the game for you. If you are not willing to read and pay attention to other players' posts (which will often contain valuable information fed to them by the GM for dissemination), this is not the game for you. Characters are not expected to all get along, but civility towards other players in the OOC is required.


This game will be using Catalyst Labs 'A Time of War' series of Battletech rules, but the focus of the game will not be on the combat, but the characters interacting with each other and the impacts they will have on the history of the Inner Sphere. Please make sure to read the Setting information before sending an RTJ, as this is a semi-continuation of a previous game and thus the timeline has shifted slightly.

For any questions not covered in the game information, please use a private message there, and not post here.

Thank you and I hope to see you in game!
