The Last Line (Battletech via MegaMek)
The Last Line - Forum
Estimated Members Requested: 8
So, the idea for this game is mostly a freeform Battletech, with all the combat occurring using the freeware MegaMek program to handle combat in a series of monthly/bi-weekly (or more often, depending on schedule) multiplayer games. Everyone will play a single character with relatively abstracted stats acting as part of a mixed resistance unit trying to fight back a Word of Blake invasion in 3067. I'm not bound to canon with this game, so if everyone plays well enough there's a chance of kicking off the Wobbies or holding out long enough for the FedSuns to relieve them.
I'm looking for a minimum of 4 players and a maximum of 8 players. I don't have any particular expectation of a given posting rate beyond 'at least three or four posts a week', but you will have to be able to put aside an hour or three a few times a month to get together in Discord and play a combat encounter in MegaMek.
Fletcher is one of dozens of fairly unremarkable worlds in the Chaos March. Settled in the first age of colonization, Fletcher was once an industrial powerhouse before the Succession Wars. After the widespread devastation, only Caletra Fighters maintains any manufacturing of intergalactic note. While by no means poor, most of the goods and services produced on Fletcher are of little interest more than a Jump away. Like many worlds in the Chaos March, the planetary government splintered during the FedCom Civil War, several nations declaring their defacto independence but not able to muster enough forces to do more than protect their new borders. Content in a sort of sleepy, armed obscurity, Fletcher has been able to coast through the FedCom Civil War without further incident.
We need to start worrying about the world we're leaving for Keith Richards.
