Timothy Asd

Character History[edit]

Timothy Asd was the author of The Caldrea Debacle, published by Green Mountain Press in 2500. Asd's book detailed the Lyran Commonwealth battle to capture Caldrea during the 2363-2368 military campaign known as the Long March Offensive. The Caldrea Debacle detailed actions such as the unsuccessful attack on The Cassino, the fortress that guarded the Kelli pass on the northern mountain continent and which saw the Lyran Twenty-Third BattleMech Battalion destroyed or heavily damaged and the battalion's CO, Colonel Yoller, killed in action, highlighting the reasons behind the decision to use nuclear weapons to complete the conquest of the planet in defiance of the Ares Conventions.[1]
