Between the collapse of the Terran Alliance, and the rise of the First Star League, humankind was scattered among the worlds of the Inner Sphere. Driven by their own ambitions and united by fear of their neighbors, mighty star empires rose up from the ashes of abandoned colonies, absorbing the remains of mankind’s interstellar exodus, and gave rise to the noble Houses of the Inner Sphere.
Driven by greed, fear, and dreams of glory, these Houses were at war by the dawn of the twenty-fifth century. The decades of conflict would leave no realm untouched, and forever altered the course of human destiny.
Era Digest: Age of War is a mini-sourcebook that explores the pivotal developments of the Sphere-wide fighting that ultimately led to the birth of the Star League, featuring a glimpse of life in the BattleTech universe before the age of the BattleMech, the rise of neo-feudalism, and a look at the evolution of combat from the savagery of “total warfare” to the chivalry of MechWarriors. Complete with rules and stats for several Age of War units, Era Digest: Age of War also features role-playing support for this crucial setting in BattleTech history!

Assumption of Risk
Solaris VII, the Game World, is the Inner Sphere in microcosm, and Kai Allard-Liao is its Champion, veteran of the war against challengers who wish his crown for their own.
There is no place he would rather be.
Then the political realities of the Federated Commonwealth intrude on Solaris. Ryan Steiner, a man sworn to dethrone Victor Steiner-Davion, comes to Solaris to orchestrate his rebellion. Tormano Liao, Kai’s uncle, redoubles his efforts to destroy the Capellan Confederation, and Victor Davion plots to avenge his mother’s assassination.
In one short month, Kai’s past, present and future collapse in on themselves, forcing him to do things he had come to Solaris to avoid. If he succeeds, no one will ever know — but if he fails, he’ll have the blood of billions on his hands.

Aris Sung is a rising young star in House Hiritsu, noblest of the Warrior Houses that have sworn allegiance to the Capellan Confederation. The Sarna Supremacy, a newly formed power in the Chaos March, is giving the Confederation some trouble—and Aris and his Hiritsu comrades are chosen to give the Sarnans a harsh lesson in Capellan resolve.
But there is far more to the mission than meets the eye—and unless Aris beats the odds in a race against time and treachery, all the ferro-fibrous armor in the galaxy won’t be enough to save House Hiritsu from the high-explosive cross fire of intrigue and shifting loyalties…
