The year is 3060. This is the world of Battletech, an RP about giant mechs duelling it out! If you're not familiar with Battletech I would recommend fixing that! But I do expect some familiarity with the universe for this RP, apologies if this is inconvenient, but it's also fairly important. The figure walks into the room and takes his place behind the lectern of the briefing room. He is tall, muscular and has an impressive beard for a man with Mechwarrior patches. His eyes gleam with mirth. "The Inner Sphere has been in a state of turmoil since the Clan Invasions, and let's be honest ladies and gentlemen... this is great for business." He begins leaning back on the board. "You've all come to the Hellguard for various reasons, C-bills, more C-Bills, the occasional fight, some more C-bills, and by the damnable gods you've been hand picked by me." He grinned at them. He tapped the board. "Well we have three lances and a couple ASFs as well as the Dropship 'Last Mistake', and we've been accepted by the Mercenary Review and Bonding Commission as a legitimate unit and we've got a number of offers for work already. As such we have three mech lances and two aerospace fighters and you ladies and gentlemen are the select few who get to pilot them. Now despite what some of the Astechs around here will tell you i'm not some sort of Draconian tyrant. So, here are the offers we have on the table. Let's pick one and go get paid!" *CONTRACT DATA* MERCENARIES REVIEW AND BONDING COMMISSION CONTRACT EVALUATION Contractor: Local Government World: Landfall Duty: Bandit Suppression Begin Date: March 4th, 3060 End Date: April 1st, 3060 Maximum Pay: 15'000'000 C-Bills + Bounty and Bonus Minimum Pay: Bounty Salvage Rights: Medium.

So while there IS a degree of randomness and the like in battle, it's all metaphorically rolled off-board behind the scenes. Note: As you SHOULD expect. If you do something stupid it will bite you in the ass. For example. If you take a Locust and run up to a Clan Ghost Bear Kodiak, stop and go "Neener neener!" It's going to smash your ass in so hard you'll never wake up. Additionally, no god-modding or controlling (or even implying control) over another player or NPCs. (Though you can probably boss around your mechs astech crew a little :p) Doing this will have consequences. Dire Consequences :p If you are going to be absent (expectedly) just let us know and, at worst, i'll GM your mech until you return. If you don't post without warning for 2 'turns' (so to speak) then ... well we'll see ;) No Auto-hits! As the first paragraph said, you basically just declare intent and see how it pans out. This will be dealt with in the same way as god-modding.
