I think the most recent publications in Btech (Total Warfare and TechManual) have revived BattleTech rather significantly ... but one thing outside the rules that Btech does spectacularly is art and fluff.

The plastic minis in the new BattleTech box set are pretty well done, as are a lot of the figs that come with FFG's big box games like StarCraft and World of WarCraft.

Of course a line of separate DragonMech resin minis would kick arse also.

Is there any info available on what the moon's surface is actually like - because my impression from all the lunar creatures and temples and so on is that it probably has a breathable atmosphere.

Glod begins making a list of all of the controls and their functions in the control room. He's also looking for anything that might be out of place in the readings or gauges.

13 + (Knowledge Mechs + 19) = 32

Glod Ref 17 + 5 = 23

Glod moves quickly enough to bring his force field steam power between him and the flames.

Init 18 (+3) = 21
Ref 11 (+5) = 16

Con Saving Throw 12 + 3 = 15

Glod realizes that he won't be able to swim and secures himself against the flow, holding his breath and hoping that the liquid will drain away before he runs out of breath (Con of 16)

Glod picks up the Spark Generator, Cautorizer and Puppet. The Animator and Descriminator combo look a bit heavy.

Glod and Connaught finish off the baselists.

Glod is on the lookout for the following components: Animator, Bloodhound, Cauterizer, Discriminator and Spark Generator. He also will keep his eyes out for new and unusual steam powers that might have been abandoned as Nedderpick faltered.

Damage: 17, 13 and 7

Glod suggests that Connaught wait as it will be easier to finish off the unconsious baselisks with the steam gun (so that no goo gets no where near anyone)

Glod scratches his head. Coglayer's guild is worth a check. Better ensure that no dangerous steam powers have been left active. If any have been left lying around, someone might get hurt!

Okay - leveled up.

Added the Mechanized Combat Practice feat - so that should iron out the odd "can build the weapons but can't use them" bug.

Improved Disable device, listen and mech pilot skills.
