Re: What's your current project?

While I don't write with the goal towards novels, but I do write a lot for solo gaming which sometimes comes across as a short story or screen play rough draft. My current project is play testing an Amber Diceless solo framework that I wrote. https://plus.google.com/u/0/+ToddZircher/posts/DfUV451BUF...

Re: Actual Battletech

I'm sure it was random, but it was only a few jumps 'west' of Weldry. The planet was as Star League battle site. Will get the info when I get home tonight.

Re: Actual Battletech

On my second play through and I'm wandering farther, visited a system that had a freaking highlander available. I didn't have the credits to burn, but the idea of getting serious firepower before the story missions is very very tempting.

Re: Actual Battletech

Aye, to rephrase, there is a mercenary management game mixed in with the tactical combat in addition to the story. This is a good thing. I did this at the table for years.

Re: Actual Battletech

Pondering a second play-through and I invariably started thinking what I wanted to do differently. So, my self imposed rules are Behemoth must survive (and actually be a viable team member), use the Blackjack for as long as possible (migrating from the anchor to the scout role), diversify weapons so...
