Battletech meets M&M

Post by Aerlwyn » Mon Mar 12, 2012 2:47 pm

I have a rough idea of a setting where the Innersphere is currently at peace, the year is 3047. Davon III's militia have just received several new mechs for testing and training purposes, along with a training officer from the Wolf Dragoons.

Davon III is a fringe planet on the eastern edge of House Davion space. A small agro world with little to offer to pirate so it was largely ignored until the last few years with several small attacks on food warehouses but unmarked mechs and vehicles.

In responce the governor William Martell ask for help from Hanse Davion, a Union Cmd transport arrived in system with a message for governor Martell. "I Hanse Davion have sent you the means to defend yourself from these marauders, Captain Alice Zane of the Wolf Dragoons will train people you send to her from your militia and police forces."

sometimes, the less you add the better, then you can make it up as you go along.

Placing the setting on one planet is a good idea. Makes it feel more personal for the players. It could even be their homeplanet.

Just some questions. Which mechs are you planning to do? Is the Draconis Combine the main enemy or just some pirates? Are Jaime Wolf, Natasha Kerensky and anyone else famous from the battletech universe making guest cameos?

Its possible to meet iconic character like those as the mech pilots training officer is a member of the wolf dragons, yes th players are from the planet as they are militia or police officers assigned to learn battlemech skills. Its just pirates for the most part yes might get a raid from the dracs.

Going to borrow a few from yours(HusterOne) and a few from the 3025 book.
