Requesting To Join & For New Players
Hi all,

Welcome to Falling Stars, a game based in the BattleTech universe using the A Time of War rules. These rules are focused less on the BattleMech combats that this universe is famous for, and more on a traditional roleplaying experience like D&D and Pathfinder. However, BattleMechs are the stars of BattleTech, so for anyone who would like to pilot a ten meter tall walking war machine, you are more than welcome to join!

For anyone new to BattleTech or A Time of War, the manual is readily available for free online. It's a hefty tome, so if you are new let me know, and we can work together to develop your character.

The game is set in the year 3026, and will follow the plight of a group of young men and women on the periphery of the Inner Sphere, as they attempt to survive bandits, political intrigue, crumbling society and constant warfare. As mentioned above, there will be a roleplaying focus, but combat will also feature more or less heavily depending on the group's decisions. For infantry / small group combat we will use the rules in A Time of War. For larger combats involving vehicles and 'Mechs, we will either fight the battle descriptively using a 'light' version of the classic BattleTech tabletop rules, or if the players' timezones align, we will use either Tabletop Simulator or HBS's newly released game BATTLETECH in multiplayer mode to fight our battles.

Requesting To Join:

I can't guarantee that I'll add every person who requests to join, as I believe it's important to make sure the group is generally interested in the same sort of game, but I will review every request and get back to you as soon as I can once you do message me.
