On many worlds battles between the various House factions is common place. The Succession Wars have provided some of the largest and most brutal displays of politics and military might. But there are others that play much the same games who, although not as famous as the various house leaders, wield a weapon of great power in its own right: Money.
Two of the Inner Sphereâ€™s major finance companies go head-to-head on the battlefield when, after a series of skirmish encounters on the planet San Hoa everything explodes into outright war for control of the bottom dollar.
Itâ€™s a mercenaryâ€™s dream and an investorâ€™s nightmare.
Starting 2nd February, 2014 the Tabletop Gamers Association
and Alpha Strike
bring you Hostile Takeover, a BattleTech campaign set in 3051 during the return of Star League technology and the forming of the Federated Commonwealth. On the border planet of San Hoa in the Lyran Commonwealth close to Free Worlds League space players will create a mercenary force and battle through a series of missions (called â€˜Tracksâ€™) using the Warchest campaign system. Each Track will have a lead story to help set the scene and give players a feel for the progression of events on the planet.
Using the very successful Alpha Strike
combat system players will take command of an entire Battalion worth of units contracted out to a corporation of thier choosing. This can be Truman Finance Corporation, Bilateral Investments, or any corporation from all the major powers of the Inner Sphere. Players can challenge any other player in the campaign as it is assumed senior corporate officials have been bribed, are actually secret service operatives for one of the major powers, or just looking to best a rival. This usually leaves mercenary units as pawns in this endless power play.
will be having specials on BattleTech products during the campaign. Please refer to the player pack for details.
