Catalyst Game Labs Publishing: Masters & Minions

The Who's Who BattleTech sourcebook.

It's been a decade since a 'book of important personalities' was published for BattleTech. Additionally, since that time, the universe has been tossed head-over-heels and shook to its foundation in the current Jihad storyline.

"A personality-heavy sourcebook is always a great time to provide a 'status of the universe' update," said Randall N. Bills, Managing Developer. "This is even more important with A Time of War: The BattleTech RPG publishing this fall. As a second entry point (a scifi RPG) to the BattleTech universe (after the Introductory Box Set, the boardgame entry point), having a single product that provides a 'this is where the universe is at' is important. Obviously any BattleTech fan is going to find Masters and Minions cool and useful. For example the rules in the back of the book for how to handle these personalities covers from Total Warfare to Tactical Operations to Strategic Operations to A Time of War. We also simply oriented the book so it does double duty as a perfect companion to the RPG for a newer player."

As part of the 25th Anniversary of BattleTech, Masters and Minions: The StarCorps Dossiers is a 272-page full-color book, with more than 80 personality illustrations. Visit the Masters and Minions catalog page for a dozen-plus page preview of this exciting product.

Make haste to reassure us that you love and support us as we love and support you, for if we find that we have left our bones to bleach in these sands in vain, then beware the fury of the legions."
