Dont worry too much about the RTJ.

I'm going back to the light company concept for all sorts of reasons.

Also going to open up the concept of conventional units for players too.

1 Player = (1) mech

or

1 Player = (1) VTOL plus (1) npc wingman

or

1 Player = (1) Tank plus (3) npc tanks

or

1 Player = (1) Infantry Commander plus (?) Squads of Infantry.

New campaign, and i only decided to start a new one this morning, and to make it RR vs Clans a few hours ago, so very much still in the mulling over phase.

I'm under the presumption that peeps want to run nothing but mechs unless i'm told otherwise btw.

At most I expect 12 mechwarriors and perhaps half that in conventional players.

Still working out how conventional will work, I have an inkling but till I hear player interest there is no point in typing up what players won't be using.

Hello all!  Here to kibbitz while Kitten takes her break.  Hopefully she'll poke her paws in occasionally but in the meantime 'hi'!

So noted, theres a whole Cavalry company, but each player controls a lance is the theory, so there is only room for three calvalry players.

Conventional units will be assigned though.  Since it's a light mech company, the conventional support will be heavier and slower to provide a little more firepower and endurance to fights.

They're expected to be around 30 ish tons and similar to my campaign Pattons, the player rides in a command variant while the rest of the lance is made up of the more fragile 'standard' variant.

They move 4/6... take okay damage, and will be important to support the lighter mech company.
