I met the group of friends that are still among my best friends via Battletech. Until mid-7th Grade, lunch meant eating quickly, then heading outside seeking something to alleviate boredom and avoiding bullies.
Then, one day, one of my only friends introduced me to these guys who stayed in all lunch, hunched at the end of a cafeteria table as though using their bodies readoht a wall to protect the bubble of fantasy battletexh they were collectively creating.
I was hooked instantly.
Battletech: Technical Readout Revised by Blaine Lee Pardoe
It was a board game, but with infinite scenarios created by the players. It was a roleplaying game with a duration of one battle. It had a massive variety of pieces with various weapons, speeds, armor ratings, and special abilities and, if you weren’t satisfied with the hundreds of options they provided, extensive, balanced rules for creating your own mechs. The rules were extensive and, when using advanced optional rules, bordered on obsessive minutia but being a dysfunctional obsessive compulsive, I found learning them a delight.
The technical handout books not only contained dozens of mechs and vehicles, but each had its own history and backstory, as well as little personalized traits and quirks that had no effect on the game but made it all feel real, like commentary on how cramped the cockpits were for larger pilots or how awkwardly the control yokes were placed. I don’t know the state of the game currently aside from the nearly-direct computer port of this game that we always dreamed of finally coming out just look up Battletech on Steambut between the politically complex and interesting universe, detailed, comprehensive and seemingly balanced rules, and the relative speed of play, it filled a solid niche in our gaming schedule.
When the RPG came out around college times for me we even tried out a short lived mercenary game. Though we only got through a few sessions, it did send me on a month-long nostalgic binge re-reading the books and re-living a hundred battles fought in Middle and High School.

It’s an okay book, but that’s it. It doesn’t have a lot o fht eold ‘Mechs from when I started playing inbut there’s a reason for that. Thus this book had to come out if you wanted t If you’re a Battletech fan of yesteryear, or just getting into the game, this is a great place to start.
Thus this book had to come out if you wanted to find the stats for at least their own original designs to use in the game. The internet wasn’t yet the norm and players HAD to buy this book if they wanted to play.
Anyways, the mentions of notable pilots from the original book for each design are absent, which stinks because they were interesting to read. The artwork for the Star League-era designs such as the Sentinel and Thug could have been better.
It was better in the TRO.
Why they didn’t just reuse the artwork from that book, instead of having a new artist do it and spend the money, is beyond me for these ‘Mechs. My other gripe is the fact that the overall production value seems low and there’s, from a gaming universe perspective, a rather thin explanation of why these ‘Mechs were left out.
