Kapteyn Chaos Campaign

In response to the marriage of Melissa Steiner and Hanse Davion, and the alliance of the Lyran Commonwealth and Federated Suns, the Draconis Combine, Free Worlds League, and Capellan Confederation signed the Kapteyn Accords. Now war has come to the great Houses once again…

You represent a ‘Mech Company of the three signatory nations of the Kapteyan Accords, thrown together to secure a foothold (i.e. planetary assault) on Rigil Kentarus between the Lyran Commonwealth and Federated Suns. The “Kapteyn Group” is made up of the Draconis Swords of Light, Free Worlds Guard, and the Capellan Death Commandos. The planet is defended by an alliance of Lyran and FedSun forces, reinforced by their mercenary allies, the Wolf’s Dragoons.

You are the commanders of the Kapteyn Group, while I will be the Gamemaster and OpFor (Opposing Force) for this mini-campaign. We will be using the BattleTech: Chaos Campaign Succession Wars PDF for scenario tracks and rules.

That was the email I sent to our group to in preparation for our next series of linked games (i.e. campaign). People seemed to enjoy the last game with objectives, so this adds an element of continuity into the mix. Damage and injuries carry over from game to game (though they can be repaired and healed using Warchest points) and the ‘Mech destruction is permanent.

I took 25 ‘Mechs out of my Kickstarter collection and sent them off to Les to paint. Those all went into a carrying case (appropriately named MADCAT) and into a travel kit of terrain, record sheets, and rulebooks for future use with my home group. I will be looking to double up on some of these ‘Mechs for my personal units…

Until next time MechWarriors!
