Heya Folks,

Recently I sent an email to our very esteemed Medron Pryde about when we might next see an update on Dark Age 'mechs and vehicals for the Heavy Metal program series.

His very prompt response was as follows:
Quote:
As for other files, I've wanted to keep the files to what I know are accurate, and since only one set of record sheets has ever been released anything else is pretty much conjecture.

Now if you want to come up with a large number of those designs using the Novels as references then I could see pushing them up. Smile


I myself have duplicated only a very small handful of the new units in an HMP format (the Gyrfalcon and Shrike, both stock and custom 'Hazen' varients). These were based on accurate descriptions given in both the Victor Milan novel "Flight of the Falcon", and the WizKids Dark Age site.

Unfortunately, I am not an omniscient geek of all things BattleTech...I'm just a lowly peasent geek. What I am both seeking and proposing is a compilation of knowledge and rutting-skills. I am looking for individuals to add to a compendium of newly introduced Dark Age units with accurate descriptions and verifiable sources, all in the HMP format.

In other words, I am looking for:
1.) Dark Age 'mech, vehical, aerospace and infantry designs not included in the most recent Dark Age Record Sheets release.
a.) These designs should be described as Heavy Metal constructs.

2.) Verifiable sources for how the conclusions to the construct were reached (ie, list your sources).

3.) NO GUESS WORK. If you have to guess, then its not accurate, and ergo, not valid. If the information for certain data or components is not available, then its not available.
a.)Of course, someone else might have the missing piece to the puzzle from another source. Combining resources is the whole point to this project.
b.) Certain missing values can be filled in if they are the only value missing, and all other components are accurate and verified. This cannot attribute for adding weapons or equipment, but could be used to figure out armor values, or engine tonnage values (IE speed).
c.) In distribution, use your best judgement based on the data, and common sense.

4.) Again, list your sources. If you're posting the design in this thread, just add a header about where you got all your data. If you want to keep it in a HMP format, include the information in the notes section.

Hopefully, in time, this will all add up to a collection which can be added to the PRI downloads and shared with the community, filling in the gap which has opened after the release of the last DA: Record Sheets.
