Going Commando in the 31st Century (BattleTech)
Hey all,

 It's been a hot minute since I've had a break in the work/GMing schedule and am currently on the hunt for a GM for a BattleTech: Total Warfare/A Time of War campaign. I've been running several concurrent BattleTech games IRL and all of them have finally concluded, leaving me free to seek new pastures.

 With this in mind, I'll knock what I'm looking for down to the bullet points.

* Campaign Type: I'd prefer a 'Mechless Lite campaign. Think about the A-Team. Yeah, our characters do have the skills to operate BattleMechs, Aerospace Fighters, and the like, but they aren't always going to be useful or accessible. Sure, we can sledgehammer open the defenses of a Blakist base, but we're not exactly going to be able to squeeze that Atlas into the barracks to kidnap a spy, now are we, hotshot?

* Era: I'm thinking either the end of the FedCom Civil War, Word of Blake Jihad, or the early Republic era, as that would give myself and other players the widest possible range of Affiliations to draw from.

* Affiliation: I'm not hard set on PCs belonging to any one faction or another. Personally, I think it'd be interesting from a roleplay perspective to have characters drawn from a variety of affiliations that now have to work together because Fate's kind of a jerk like that.

 I do have an inkling of a campaign jumping off point, should you need one. I've had this idea percolating in the back of my head for a couple of months now, so I'd be down for sharing it if it could get the game going. I'd even be okay with it starting off as a solo game that eventually accrues other players over time, if that's what it takes to get it going.

As always, happy gaming and stay safe out there.

Going Commando in the 31st Century (BattleTech)
Wanted to cast the net out again and see if there were anyone interested in running this type of campaign. I have a character in mind already and, as stated previously, I have an idea for a campaign jumping off point if the potential GM was interested in using it to get the game off and running.

I'd be plenty fine with it starting out as a solo game to get the ball rolling and then add more players as the campaign fleshes out.

Still looking for a GM to run a BattleTech (AToW) game focused on a commando team. Haven't really changed any preferences I listed prior. Hoping to get a game going soon.
