Description[edit]

Lostech: The MechWarrior Equipment Guide is an equipment sourcebook for roleplaying in the BattleTech universe. The book contains many rules that pertain to gear, including skills, traits, and Life Paths for characters that revolve around technology. Roughly a fourth of the book is devoted to new (and newly updated) weapons and armor that characters and GMs can use in RPG campaigns. Also included are RPG statistics for all battle armor that appeared in print sources up to that point. Finally, the book contains new gear, from computers to jeeps to poisons.

From the back cover[edit]

Lostech. Across the Inner Sphere, the term conjures images of unstoppable weapons, impenetrable armor and other relics of lost technology, advanced equipment forgotten to mankind since the collapse of the Star League some 300 years ago.

The awesome power of lostech—and much, much more—is at your fingertips in this illustrated guide to personal gear in the BattleTech universe. Lostech: The MechWarrior Equipment Guide includes descriptions and MechWarrior, Third Edition game rules for more than a hundred new items, featuring a detailed treatment of powered battle armor that includes a full technical readout covering all 20 known models.
