After another rousing few games of Legendary last night, we’re ready to get back into Battletech! What follows is a draft of our Scenario Rules that we’re mulling over for next time. The various posts I’ve made recently with Mech construction has been helping me to prepare for this game.
After my first experiment with constructing “equivalent” Clan and Inner Sphere Mechs, I was not entirely satisfied with the results. The more I thought about it, the more I realized that I could probably use Endo-Composite Internal Structure over regular Endosteel in order to free up much needed crit space in the Inner Sphere Mech. Here are the results of continuing to refine the Inner Sphere design.
In doing all of my recent designs of Battlemechs, I came upon the question: What would happen if you attempted to make a strict Inner Sphere tech base Mech that was as close to a strict Clan tech base as possible? Would the BV reflect the extreme difference in the strength of the two tech bases? Here follows a single anecdote investigating the question.
