The BattleTech Rulebooks Bundle contains the 5 core rulebooks published before Total Warfare, starting with the BattleTech Manual published in 1987 (only 3 years into BattleTech's life), to the BattleTech Master Rules [Revised Edition] published by FanPro 14 years later. A great snapshot of the development of the rules across the lifetime of the BattleTech line.
While players are free to use any rules set they wish, all of these rulebooks have been superseded by Total Warfare, TechManual, Tactical Operations and Strategic Operations.

NOTE: PDFs are scans of print books. They may contain modified illustrations of BattleMechs that are not currently used in BattleTech.

I think of all the products I've seen posted on DriveThruRPG this is the one I've been most excited about to date. I started playing Battletech in the mid-80s with the original boxed set. Over the years I've come and gone from the game, but always had [...]

Battletech was actually my "entrance drug" into gaming. And I think I still have a tattered copy of the Battletech Compendium from 1990 lying around somewhere. Leafing through the books included in that great bundle bring back a lot of memories. From [...]

Okay, BattleTech is like Shadowrun to me. It's my introductory material to the tabletop. And it's awesome. I'm giving this the top possible rating. Why? Because I looked through it, and it brought back so many happy feelings. It's a great deal for [...]

Here it is folks. BattleTech. The core rules from 1987 on through 2001. 155 Megabytes of compressed 'mech goodness. I am writing this in my office and glancing to the bookshelves on my left, I can see the original BattleTech boxed set and the BattleTech [...]

Scanned image
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.
