    Summary

    Waking up as a purple space squid was not what I had planned for. There is no gravity and there's a giant robot right next to me. Why am I so calm anyway?

    Summary

    Look, I've written stories about BattleTech mercenaries and how they formed their units and what battles they fought and I just want to try to write about something new and different, okay. I'm not defensive, you're defensive. So here's one that kind of explores the BattleTech universe's relationship with its own past, and by extension, the ephemeral nature of memories and legends. It also gave me a chance to think about what finding a BattleMech would mean to a civilian.

    Summary

    A couple of people have been kind enough to read some of my old BattleTech scribblings on the site, so I felt I should post something new by way of thanks. I tend to write about less covered aspects of the universe, as I find I get quickly bored writing the same thing as everyone else, and this one is no exception.

    Here's a retelling of the run-up to the "Malagrotta Affair" (2573), one of the inciting incidents that sparks the Reunification War, and thus the Star League's deadly relationship with the Periphery.

    Summary

    Many, many years ago I played a fair amount of tabletop Battletech. One of the best parts of Classical Battletech is customization of the 'mechs. I don't expect this to get many views, but I would be pleased to be proven wrong.

    Chapter 1: The ultimate UrbanMech, a shield that never falters.
    Chapter 2: A Shadow Hawk for the experienced pilot with the skill to make up for brute force.
    Chapter 3: Infantry Support Mechs - Bugs for Grunts.
    Chapter 4: Team 55 - even a good meme can be carried too far.
    Chapter 5: What could have been - Making a better Warhammer.

    Summary

    It's no secret that early BattleTech had a thing about doubles. Max Liao made a double of Hanse Davion. In one short story, he made another of his son Tormana Liao. Hanse made one of Joshua Marik. Melissa Steiner had a double. The man everyone thought was Thomas Marik was a double. Doubles, doubles everywhere...

    But if the standard MO is to brainwash the double into believing they're the real deal, what happens when all this overcrowding of doubles means two doubles meet each other?

    Summary

    The worlds administrated by House Gautier have long been part of the bulwark between the Inner Sphere and Clan forces operating out of Sreng. Whether it’s the occasional raid from Clan Wolf, a host of crusading Jade Falcons intent on purging the galaxy of freebirth vermin, or the most recent incursions by Smoke Jaguar forces, fighting the clans has always been one of the principal duties of any member of the Gautier family.

    But this latest series of attacks has Sylvain worried. The Kingdom of Fearghus may be at its strongest in decades, and the Star League may be once again on the rise, but tensions are high, and the stakes higher. This fight isn’t one he can win alone.

    Luckily, he doesn’t have to.

    Summary

    "Epitaph on an Army of Mercenaries"
    A.E. Housman

    These, in the day when heaven was falling,
    The hour when earth's foundations fled,
    Followed their mercenary calling,
    And took their wages, and are dead.

    Their shoulders held the sky suspended;
    They stood, and earth's foundations stay;
    What God abandoned, these defended,
    And saved the sum of things for pay.

    Running serial about the adventures of a mercenary aerospace unit.

    Summary

    It is easy to go down into Hell; night and day, the gates of dark Death stand wide; but to climb back again, to retrace one’s steps to the upper air—there’s the rub, the task.

    Summary

    The Battle for Tukayyid was a turning point in the Clan Invasion and the history of the Inner Sphere. We've seen what it looked like from the hilltop, but what was the view from the trenches?

    A platoon of infantry in the green Com Guard 50th Division realize they will serve as a shock absorber to take the first blow in the first battle of the battle, against the fearsome Clan Smoke Jaguar. Each of them must come to grips with this, and find some measure of meaning in their hopeless fight.
