BattleTech: Core Rulebooks Primer

ADD TO WISHLIST >
Watermarked PDF
$0.00

BattleTech is an epic, ongoing universe with a game simulating combat between various military vehicles in the thirty-first century. The kings of the battlefield are the 30-foot tall humanoid titans known as BattleMechs. However, a myriad of other military units bring additional fun to any game, from Combat Vehicles to Support Vehicles, infantry to aerospace units and more.

The current award-winning BattleTech core rulebooks take a “kitchen sink” approach, meaning they provide a vast smorgasbord of rules and options from which each player group gets to decide what they’ll use each time they play. However, even though each rulebook (and by extension, the rules it contains) has been made as easy as possible to plug into existing games, the sheer depth and scope can be intimidating.

This Primer is designed to quickly and easily walk you through everything the BattleTech game system has to offer and how each core rulebook can be of interest to your gaming group. (Much of this information is found in various sources, but is compiled here for ease of reference.)

A great overview of the core rulebooks in the Battletech series, and of gameplay in general, clearly written and straightforward. I wish more publishers would release primers like this one. [...]

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.
