(This scenario was published a second time on 29 September 2009; this time the teaser read: A MechWarrior's worst enemy is heat buildup--and that enemy has allies when the temperature outside rises as fast as inside!)

[edit] Scenario: Arcadia: Daybreak Fandango: Part I

(27 April 2007) - The forces of the Free Worlds League have landed on the border world of Arcadia. The planet's militia defenders are overwhelmed; while the bulk of them are meeting the Marik forces, a small contingent is staying behind to protect their base at Summersville.

[edit] Scenario: Brains Vs Brawn

[edit] Scenario: Return of the Wolves: Rebellion - Salvage

(27 September 2007) - We’ve spotted a small group of merc scavengers outside Hutchinson Pass. The local miners in the area tell us they’re looking for one of our old sunken weapon caches; while I don’t know what’s buried there, the fact is there are vultures there digging up Dragoon equipment.

Outreach, undated: In the aftermath of the scouring of Outreach, Rebel Group Alpha of Tara's Ghosts under Tara Lucas attacks a salvage team guarded by elements of the Broadsword Legion.

Owing to its nature as a Track scenario, the exact composition of the opposing forces and the game map are variable.

[edit] Scenario: Return of the Wolves: Rebellion - Furball

(12 October 2007) - Donny’s been itching to show the Legion a thing or two about air combat ever since he heard the traitor mercs have pulled together some sort of air wing – taken from our own hangers.

(12 October 2007) - Found out from our contacts near Wellstone City that the Widowmakers have been poking around the site of one of Blackwell’s main network nodes. So they’re now interested in our data as well as our machines? No matter. I am a virus to their pretty Blakist programming.

[edit] Scenario: Return of the Wolves: Water Spiders

(26 October 2007) - Crazy as he is, Whitehorse had the right idea. Coming over from Romulus on a submarine was a stroke of brilliance; I doubt the Blakists and their lackeys have any idea we’re here. Now all we have to do is make them pay, and pay in blood.

Madcat.gif This section is a stub. You can help BattleTechWiki by expanding it.


[edit] Scenario: Return of the Wolves: Ghosts

(02 November 2007) - Time for us to take the fight beyond our home – such as it is. First, however, we need to remove the head of the snake from its loathsome body.

Madcat.gif This section is a stub. You can help BattleTechWiki by expanding it.


[edit] Strike at the Heart

(12 August 2008) - As the fires of the Jihad rages around us, let us remember a simpler war, in a simpler time. Even in the depth of the 4th Succession War, the little battles still mattered and still counted. The inexperienced power of the Suns, vs. the skilled but constrained Capellans. Which side will you choose?

Madcat.gif This section is a stub. You can help BattleTechWiki by expanding it.

(15 August 2008) - Another camp fire memory, to keep us warm in the nuclear winter of the Jihad. The planet is Liao, the time is the 4th Succession War.

[edit] Scenario: Lead Rainmakers

(10 September 2010) - Pirate raids are a common nuisance along the long winding border of the Periphery, sometimes so common that the defenders know the pirates almost as well as they know themselves. Every so often, that familiarity has an unexpected side effect, as this BattleCorps Exclusive Track illustrates.
