    What's the earliest playable era of Battletech?

    Technically? 1945, from XTRO 1945.
    http://www.sarna.net/wiki/Experimental_Technical_Readout:_1945

    That would actually be fun (i.e. has 'Mechs)? You can play stuff from the Age of War (pre/early Star League) using Primitive 'Mech designs.

    Hey, tabletop nerds. I need help answering a question.

    How did the Republic of the Sphere organize its 'Mech units? Lances? Stars? Sextuplets like the WoB/C*? Something else?

    I may have accidentally added another small pile of 'Mechs to my shame pile, and I figured I hadn't planned out a RoS force. I don't know how they organize though, and can't find an answer!

    Wasn't there supposed to be a batch of the new boxed sets dropping in December? Do we have any news about that?

    RotS generally uses lances, companies, battalions, etc. I could see some small-scale groups of unreconstructed Clan warriors fighting together in ad-hoc Stars, especially early on in their history, but usually it's lances.

    Current working understanding is the boxes should hit retail mid-month.

    I've been crossing my fingers since CGL announced that.

    Yeah, I can't reference a sourcebook for it, but this fits my recollection of MW:DA game materials and the couple novels I read.

    If you're curious about my icon; it's an update of the early Lego Castle theme's "Black Falcons" faction.

    Alright, new question: does anyone know where the rules for Handheld Weapons are printed? It's not Total Warfare or the Tech Manual.

    I'm looking at a wacky version of the Quickdraw, the 8X/8P, and Sarna lists it having a literal smorgasbord of hand-carried weapon options that might be fun to kitbash up.

    Like melee weapons? I think the Compendium had the hatchet, and the mace/claw/sword show up in MaxTech, I wanna say
