Mechwarriors of Fortune is a simple Battletech Campaign System that we have devised to add a sense of purpose to our Battletech Games. Sure there is nothing wrong with stand alone games, but imagine
the impact of each game if every Mech and vehicle needed to be maintained, pilots needed to be payed, missions for the great houses undertaken and every lost unit actually had an impact on your next
game. With this campaign system we have managed to add those elements to the game whilst still keeping things pretty simple so as not to over burden the player with lots of admin after each game.
In this campaign each player takes control of their own Mercenary Command and undertakes missions for the various powers to gain fame and fortune. By earning both C-Bills and Faction Points a player will
be able to upgrade his units and pilots, hire new personnel and purchase new equipment. You can even use your money to put bounties on the heads of other Mercenaries should you so choose.
