“A Million to One,” They Said…
The year is 3138. Behind the walls of the “Fortress”, the stormy world of Bryant remains cut off from interstellar communications, apparently ignored by the rest of the Republic of the Sphere. Just as the usual cycle of continent-spanning “hypercanes” gives way to a pleasant, crop-friendly Calm Season in the planet’s polar hinterlands, local communications break down amid the worrying rumors of fireballs streaking through the northern skies.
Have invaders from beyond the Republic actually made it through the Walls?
BattleTech Adventures: War of the Tripods takes players to the world of Bryant, inside the boundaries of “Fortress Republic”—a minor world, all-but overlooked by the universe around it, until the arrival of mysterious invaders. Can a team of local defenders turn back the attackers before it’s too late? War of the Tripods includes a guide to this world, personal biographies on several key players, and adventure Tracks designed for use with A Time of War: The BattleTech Role-Playing Game and the A Time of War Companion, as well as special rules, equipment, maps, and Record Sheets for key non-player characters and equipment unique to this story.

A great mod I'm sure, but why can't catalyst put this much effort into actual non joke modules for battletech RPG play. Its almost as if they are laughing at peole whe want to run AToW campaigns but don't have the time or creative energy to write a custom adventure.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
