Description[edit]

Touring the Stars: Promised Land (shorted as TtS:Promised Land) is the seventh in a series of supplemental Sourcebooks designed to detail worlds featured in the BattleTech Universe. The book is part of a series of in-universe profiles of articles written by Professor Bertram Habeas, in his series of books collectively known as Touring the Stars.

In this book, Mr. Habeas writes up the world of Promised Land. Founded by a Terran Alliance colony corporation, this world proved to be a challenge to colonies that exchanged hands between the Free Worlds League and Lyran Commonwealth multiple times. This book gives the world's history and current situation during the early part of the Early Republic Era or better known as the Dark Age era.

This book marks the beginning of a line of PDF web-exclusive products produced by Catalyst Game Labs both for players using the A Time of War RPG rules and players using the Total Warfare series of books as a backdrop for their game.

Publisher's Description[edit]

Promised Land was not exactly as the colonization brochures described, but was settled nevertheless. A chance encounter during the early Star League saved the planet from abandonment, and the struggling colony remained. Long a border waystation between the Lyran Commonwealth and the Free Worlds League, Promised Land’s history is the story of overcoming the challenges of this strange world and thriving in its unique environment.

Touring the Stars is a whistle-stop tour of the universe! Every system and planet where mankind treads in the BattleTech universe has a story, for those with the drive to explore it. Take a tour of the stars humanity now calls home, experience awesome new worlds, immerse yourself in the local civilization, and prepare to do battle in exotic locales.
