History[edit]

In 3062 the Fifth Bear Regulars faced the 2nd An Ting Legion on Richmond. They suffered losses on the world.[1]

First Draconis Combine/Ghost Bear War[edit]

During the First Draconis Combine / Ghost Bear War Xi Galaxy launched a single offensive campaign, deploying the Fifth Bear Regulars to capture the Draconis Combine world of Richmond.[2] The Fifth successfully assaulted the planet,[2] defeating the Second An Ting Legion only to have a counter-offensive by the Second Sword of Light[3] capture the Fifth's own homeworld, Constance. This forced Xi Galaxy to recapture Constance, only to lose Richmond while doing so.[2]

Officers[edit]

As of 3061 the commanding officer was Galaxy Commander Bradley Bourjon, who continued to command the Cluster until at least as late as 3067.[4]

Game Rules[edit]

  • The Fifth Bear Regulars specifically do not gain the bonus applicable to other Clan Ghost Bear units when rolling for Star weight on the Random Weight Class Tables.[5]
  • Units from the Fifth Bear Regulars suffer a -2 Penalty to all Initiative Rolls.[5]
  • In any scenario where the Random Mapsheet Tables are being used the Fifth Bear Regulars player may choose all of the mapsheets used for a scenario, rather than rolling, and the opponent generates none of the maps. If the Fifth Bear Regulars player does elect to choose the maps used in such a scenario, the opposing player may veto one of the maps, and the vetoed map must be replaced by a randomly generated mapsheet.[5]
  • If the Fifth Bear Regulars player chooses the mapsheets for a scenario, that player may arrange the maps in any legal placement.[5]
  • The Fifth Bear Regulars player receives a +2 bonus to the die roll made when rolling to determine which player gets to choose their home map edge first.[5]
