MechwarriorMechwarrior: The Battletech Role Playing Game
This edition features a fabulous section of color art, "Equipment of the Successor States," done by David Deitrick & Steve Venters, who inked much of the art for early FASA & GDW publications. The section is much more than equipment, showing various mechwarriors and soldiers in uniform in various situations; similar in style to non-RPG weapon and uniform manuals. Jim Holloway does the distinctive cover.
(Blue errata sheet in back, dated June 30, 1986)
"Ten thousand years of organized warfare have culminated in that fabrication of arms and armor, of mobility and strength, called the BattleMech.
The typical 'Mech stands 10 to 12 meters tall. Vaguely humanoid, it is an armored giant of myth and legend come to life. The lightest weigh 20 tons, the heaviest 75 tons or more. Even the smallest 'Mech bristles with lasers/particle cannons, long- and short-range missile launchers, autocannon, or machineguns which make it striding, thundering death for any unarmored army silly enough to stand and fight.
MechWarrior includes the rules and other game information necessary to role play the men and women who pilot these monsters of destruction. Lists of skills and equipment, as well as extensive rules for personal combat are provided
Also included is substantial background information on MechWarriors and their 'Mechs and on the Successor States and their endless wars. Descriptions of each major house, its leaders, major planets, and its best regular and mercenary 'Mech units provide the beginnings of endless adventures and campaigns.
There are also enough facts and figures to run a mercenary unit, including extensive mission tables and: random encounter events. The information on titles and nobility — the goal of every MechWarrior — describes land holdings and, more importantly, annual revenues collected by typical holdings.
The most spectacular section of MechWarrior is the 16-page fuil-color section illustrating some of the uniforms and equipment used by major houses and mercenary units."
