All right, reading through the book, I'll see what I can come up with, gunnery skills are completely arbitrary, as are Names (Unless mentioned, names are taken from random generators, unit names are simply what seemed appropriate):

The next terrain image flashed to life. The holograph showed a mountainous region with a lake in its center. Victor couldn't tell if he was looking at the broken-down remains of an old volcano, or just a mountain that had been savaged by millennia of weather, but outcroppings of rock and boulders dotted the landscape.
"This is Zhaloba Mountain, which the Jade Falcons will defend. We know their troops are prety sharp, thanks to the training the got on Coventry. The personnel records appended to the Falcon date indicaed that all the warriors they will deploy against us did serve on Coventry, including Marthe Pride. I want a crack unit to go after them. I was thinking, Precentor Martial, of using elements of your 394th division."
Focht nodded "I will inform Precentor Harvison to prepare his people."

Looks OK so far.

One thing about Command Structure, though- the commander of a Lance or Star is always the highest-ranking member of it. Marthe Pryde and Samantha Clees would have taken 4 other Clansmen of Warrior rank into battle with them; in addition to their duties as Clan Khans, they are the Star Captains for their own Trinaries and the Star Commanders of their own Stars.

Jerrard Cranston hit a button on his noteputer, and the display shifted to shot an area with a few rolling hills, but otherwise clear terrain.
"This is the Kawlm District the Wolves want to defend." Victor pointed a hand at the display. "As you can see, it is very open and favors their extended-range weapons. What I would like to do is throw a fast force against them, one they've not seen before, and one that can chew them up. Kai, I was thinking you might build a company out of your St. Ives Lancers to take them."

Hohiro rested his hands on his thighs and smiled as the other warriors bowed to him. They made their bows low and held them out of respect for him. He returned the gesture, not going quite as deep as they had, but holding it just as long. He meant to show them respect, and to inject some solemnity into their meeting.

He straightened up. "This is a good day to meet an enemy. The clouds are present not to shield us from the sun, but to shield the sun from us. It would be jealous of the brilliance we will display on the battlefield. When warriors gather to recount tales of battles won, they will revel greatly in the own victories, but someone will say, 'Yes, but if only we had been at Neegdye, fighting the Blood Spirits.' "

This battle takes place in a maze of ravines and hills, with heavy foliage. The Blood Spirits may begin with each of their mechs hidden, after which the Draconis Combine player may choose his starting edge.

So anyways I'm done those three for now and working up Jaguars and Revenants, but looking through the book that's about all I'm given. Anyone interested in a little collective brainstorming? This is what I know:

FWL vs. Star Adder
This battle takes place in a swampy Area. The adders have at least one point of elementals and several light mechs. Star Adders take the field.

CapCon vs. Fire Mandrill
All that is known is that one star of the Mandrills are Warden and one star are Crusaders. The Mandrills surrender after taking heavy damage.

FRR vs. Hell's Horses
The Horses have one star of armour and infantry instead of a star of Mechs. They begin to win the battle until the FRR commander rallies her troops and leads them to victory.

Nova Cat vs. Ice Hellions
As far as the text seems to state, in addition to the binary of mechs, The Ice Hellions also field a point of Aerospace Fighters. In addition, Trent fights for Clan Nova Cat. Both Nova Cat Khans die, but the Nova Cats win the battle.

With the skills of the Clansmen- especially the Khans- remember that the default for Green is 5/6, Regular 4/5, Veteran 3/4, and Elite 2/3. I'd really reccommend changing the piloting and gunnery levels to those defaults, ensuring that the pilot of each 'Mech has skills within 1 point of each other.

For the Clans, Green is 4/5, Regular 3/4, Verteran 2/3, Elite 1/2. I think SaKhans and Galaxy Commanders would posses hyper elite skills and be 0/1 pilots, and at least a few of the Khans should be 0/0 pilots.

Phelan Kell shot Kai-Allard out of his 'Mech at the same tame Kai shot Phelan down. I'd rate both of them the same- 0/0. We also know that Vlad Ward has pasted Phelan in the past, and dished out the pain to Clan Jade Falcon's best. I'd also rate Vlad Ward as a 0/0 pilot. Finally, Khan Scmitt of the Spirits is supposed to be a very hot hand in a 'Mech, easily the best the Spirits have ever produced. Given the brutality of Spirit training and thus their expertise in the field, Karianna should also easily be a 0/0 warrior.

For the two battles so far, I'd say they're pretty unbalanced. The Wolf scenario favours the St. Ives compact by fielding 'Mechs that are decidedly sub-par to their counterparts. I'd reccommend shifting the Gargoyles to their Alpha configs and adding some more Ice Ferrets to the unit- probably in place of the Novas.

For the Blood Spirits battle, the DCMS will be shoveling the proverbial uphill to even compete in that encounter. The Spirit 'Mechs are all vicious, and having them set up in hiding seems uneccessarily brutal. I'd suggest they not deploy in hiding.

Well as for the distribution of skills, I based my numbers mainly off of the twilight of the clans scenario pack, which gives individual skills for each, and as for the mech configurations those are taken straight out of the novel. As for skill, I haven't tested out the scenarios fully yet, once I do that I can account for any differences in technology with skill, after all while these are the best of the best of the clans, as proven in the books and as described, the best of the best of the inner sphere is just as good if not better.

Brandx0: I LOVE these details! I've been putting together the same fights for my group to play this year, and I was going through the same collation to build each fight.

Did you ever write-up the Victor S-D vs. Jags fight? I'd love to compare notes.

Like you, I'm having trouble finding any info on the other fights. I have to put together the Marik vs. Star Adder fight, and the Liao vs. Fire Mandrill fight. Did you have any luck finding out more? Did anyone else?

I unfortunately had zero luck finding other info, and I never really got a chance to finish writing up SJ vs Victor.
