    Elldren, and indeed anyone interested in Battletech - I cooked up the generic scenario I've been thinking about over my lunch break today. With this done I should have all the campaign details ready Soon(tm).

    I would especially like any feedpack on the pay / rep structure.
    Battletech Campaign Line Engagement Scenario

    This represents a general engagement between two Succession States. The objective is, broadly speaking, to route the opposing force from the field and secure it for salvage. (more specific objectives are available in other scenarios) However, it is quite possible for a player to end up in a situation of pyrrhic victory or to retreat from the field with minimal loss (or even gain) depending on the circumstances. The players are representing mercenary units and their ultimate loyalty is, of course, to themselves not their present employer.

    As per the rules of the campaign, each player has under their control a force consisting of two kinds of units:
    a) House Units are those provided for the scenario by one of the Successor States but under the control of the player. Losses to these units will usually results in a decrease in reputation (depending on the scenario description) but are otherwise not permanent within the campaign.
    b) Personal Units are those owned and maintained by the player and brought to the field at their discretion. Losses to these units are permanent. Each player must always deploy at least one personal unit and must put to field their Mercenary Commander. They may choose to bring along, and thus put at risk, further assets if they wish.

    I) Choose a total point value of house units (the same for both sides). Some suggested values are: 1500-2500 for a light lance, 3000-4000 for a medium lance, 4000-5000 for a heavy and 5000-6000 for an assault lance. Any value or other restriction (eg: a limit on the total number of units) that is agreeable to both players works fine here.

    II) Choose (either by agreement or by chance) which player is the attacker and which the defender. The attacker declares which Succession State they are representing then the defender chooses another.

    III) Purchase house units up to the point total (note: players do this secretly, the other player does not know the force composition of their opponent until the battle begins).

    1) At least 50% of the total points spent on mechs should be listed in the non-special portion of the list for the chosen Great House here: http://www.classicbattletech.com/downloads/Random%20Tables-3025.pdf.
    2) If a player has at least a reputation of +15 or more with the Succession State chosen in II, they may include mechs from the Special list in the 50% requirement.
    3) If a player has a reputation of -1 or less with the Succession State chosen in II, 100% of the mechs must come from the non-special list for the appropriate house.
    5) Players may only pay to upgrade their pilots to Veteran if their reputation is +10 or more (and cannot pay to upgrade to elite or higher)
    6) Players with a reputation of -1 or less must downgrade 1/3 of their total pilots to Green skill level (among all mechs and vehicles, round fractions down. So with 4 pilots 1 must be Green). They pay the usual reduction in total point costs for these units.

    IV) Choose which personal assets owned by the mercenary unit are being deployed for this battle. Assign pilots (including the Commander) to these units. The combined total of all units chosen in III and IV make up the force used by each player in the engagement. The following fees are deducted from the final pay for the mission depending on how many units are brought to the engagement (note: to a minimum of $0 total pay).
    1) Each player can bring 1 mech or vehicle for free
    2) Each additional mech or vehicle (including VTOL) costs $100,000
    3) Each aerospace unit costs $200,000
    4) Each infantry platoon costs $100,000

    V) Choose mapsheets and home edges. This can be done by mutual agreement, randomly or by allowing the defender to choose the sheets and the attacker their home edge (with the defender opposite).

    The following special rules apply during the battle:
    1) Any unit can withdraw from battle by moving off the map on their home edge (see below for how withdrawn units differ from destroyed)
    2) During the end phase, a player whose commander is alive / awake and in control of an active unit can request a ceasefire so long as the enemy commander is likewise alive / awake and in control of an active unit. Doing so ends the engagement and yields control of the field (see below for how this affects reputation and pay). Players must accept a ceasefire which is offered under these conditions.

    Once the engagement is over, each player calculates their pay and change in reputation. To be considered in control of the field, a player must have at least one unit left active (no matter how mangled) when the other side is either wiped out, withdrawn all their remaining units or requested a ceasefire. (thus, in the unlikely case that the players mutually annihilate each other on the last turn, neither side retains control)

    Reputation modifiers:
    +4 Retains control of the field
    -4 Requests a ceasefire
    +1 Per House Unit Mech / Aerospace (note: not vehicles or infantry) that survives (including those which have withdrawn or are still alive after a ceasefire)
    +1 Per enemy mech / Aerospace (note: not vehicles or infantry) destroyed

    Pay:
    1,000,000 Base pay for showing up
    2,000,000 Retains control of the field
    500,000 Per enemy mech / aerospace destroyed
    250,000 Per enemy vehicle / VTOL destroyed
    200,000 Per friendly House Unit mech which survives

    For contrast, here is the much more specific scenario I created earlier
    Brush Fires 1

    A Capellon covert ops lance must destroy a Federated Suns comsat control bunker in advance of a larger offensive. The defenders must defend their installation or, failing that, identify their attackers and survive to report their findings.

    (note: it is extremely unlikely that the bunker will survive, but the defender can still make considerable gains from secondary objectives)

    Maps should be arranged 2x1 with the attacker deploying on the west edge and the defender on the east. The bunker is placed in the eastern map as near to the center hex as is feasible.

    Special Rules:
    - 30 Points of damage inflicted on the hex designated as the bunker is sufficient to render the station inoperable.
    - "Scanning" an enemy mech is done in the end phase. The scanning unit's sensors must not be damaged and it must be in an adjacent hex to the target.
    - Note that any goal which specifies a unit must "survive" can be met by that unit retreating from the field.

    Suggested Force Composition:

    Attacker
    VND-1R Vindicator
    HCT-3F Hatchetman
    SHD-2H Shadow Hawk
    GRF-1N Griffin

    Defender
    WHM-6D Warhammer
    ARC-2R Archer
    ON1-K Orion
    WVR-6R Wolverine

    Attacker Goals
    - Destroy comsat bunker.
    Reward: 8 reputation, 2,000,000 C-Bills
    Failure: -2 repuation
    - For each friendly house mech which survives the battle
    Reward: 1 reputation, 250,000 C-Bills

    Defender Goals
    - Bunker Survives
    Reward: 3 reputation, 2,000,000 C-Bills
    Failure: -1 reputation
    - Scan any attacker. The scanning mech must survive the battle with sensors intact.
    Reward: 4 reputation, 1,000,000 C-Bills
    - Each enemy mech destroyed
    Reward: 1 reputation, 500,000 C-Bills
    - For each friendly house mech which survives the battle
    Reward: 1 reputation, 250,000 C-Bills

    The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has put $100,000 behind research into using ultrasound as a temporary contraceptive for men. If successful, it would be a means to provide low-cost, non-hormonal birth control for up to six months.

    The idea is that a well-placed round of ultrasound treatment would be enough to stop sperm production for six months, rendering the subject temporarily infertile. More clinical trials are needed, to achieve "maximum effect and safety" (I should hope so), but eventually the method could be a non-invasive vasectomy alternative. Even better, it could be rolled out across both developing and first-world countries.

    ... O_o
