Description[edit]

Historical: Wars of the Republic Era is Catalyst Game Labs' sourcebook outlining three conflicts that began in the late thirty-first century and spanned early half of what was known as Early Republic Era prior to the Gray Monday event in 3132. These includes the 2nd Combine-Dominion War (3098-3101), Victoria War (3103-3105), and Capellan Crusades (3111-3113).

The book goes into details of what began these conflicts, political leaders and their motivations, and actions taken by various military formations in these wars. Also included are game tools, special command abilities for regiments and important leaders during these wars and Random Assignment Table for two of the conflicts.

From the back cover[edit]

Local Disputes

In 3081, the Republic of the Sphere was born from the ruins of the Word of Blake Protectorate. For an Inner Sphere devastated by the horrors of escalating war, the Republic was a beacon of hope for a brighter, more peaceful future…For a time, it almost was.

Historical: Wars of the Republic Era describes the border conflicts that inevitably erupted in the decades after the Word of Blake Jihad. Covering the largest of these conflicts in particular—including the Second Combine-Dominion War, the Victoria War, and the Republic of the Sphere’s own war against the Capellan Confederation—this book provides a hard look at the early years of what would come to be known as the Dark Age Era.
