In 3055, an unknown pirate menace threatened several Lyran border worlds. Known only as the “Red Corsair,” this brutal pirate leader broke several militias and preyed upon its victims with no mercy. In response to ComStar’s pleadings, forces from Clan Wolf and the famed mercenary Kell Hounds pursued the mysterious pirate band across several Lyran worlds to a climactic showdown deep in Clan Wolf space.
Operational Turning Points: Red Corsair opens up the battle for players to join in the fight (as detailed in Michael Stackpole’s novel Natural Selection) using the successful Turning Points PDF exclusive format. Return to a time when tensions were high along the Lyran-Falcon border, and one wrong move might spark another interstellar war!
This campaign series uses the Chaos Campaign rules (a free PDF available on the right side of this site) and gives players the option of fighting individual Missions and Touchpoints, following a campaign arc, and inserting it into their own campaigns. This PDF exclusive includes detailed information on several of the worlds affected by the Red Corsair, a rundown of the forces involved in the conflict, an overview of the historical campaign, and several tools and tracks that players can use to run historical characters and battles from this time period. Only the players’ imaginations are the limits.

Catalyst Game Labs continues to expand it’s EPub novel line by adding two new epub novels to the BattleShop: Wolves on the Border and Patriots and Tyrants! Both of these are also available on Amazon’s Kindle store.
Finally, we’ve added a Vintage BattleTech PDF: the BattleForce Bundle.
BattleForce is the BattleTech game of lightning-fast combat. Units in BattleForce are represented in a more abstract manner, but still retain their individuality, allowing for fast playing games. It’s also a perfect system for playing large games.
This zip file contains only the rulebooks published in the BattleForce (1987) and BattleForce 2 (1997) box sets. They provide a great snapshot of the development of this rules system across the lifetime of the BattleTech line.
While players are free to use any rules set they wish, both of these rulebooks have been superseded by the BattleForce: Standard Rules and BattleForce: Advanced Rules published in Strategic Operations. (A free PDF of the BattleForce Quick-Start Rules is available on the right side of this site.)
