The Battletech RPG was popular enough to spawn a cartoon, comics, novels, (I’ve discussed or plan to discuss each of these on this site at some point) and of course video games, including the spin-off video series Mechwarrior. It’s a tale of a far future where colonies are involved in a civil war until the arrival of the Clans, a group descended from a famous group of warriors who play by very odd rules. Now the game returns to its roots with a new paper RPG that serves as a jumping-on point for the games.
