Publisher's Product Description[edit]

Notable Warriors

Heroes, patriots, soldiers, freedom fighters. The universe is full of them, and every realm and military force—from the mightiest Successor State to the humblest mercenary band—has its share. In the Capellan Confederation, Sang-Wei Arthur Chin and his detached lance of MechWarriors—the Youling Zhanshi must try to resist the Davion hordes on the world of Homestead. Do they have what it takes to become heroes of the Confederation, or will their mission be just another footnote in the annals of history?

Lance Pack: Liao describes a lance of notable MechWarriors from the Capellan Confederation, highlighting their warriors, their machines, and their abilities both on and off the battlefields of the late thirty-first century. This Lance Pack dossier file provides players with the background and descriptions of all four members of the Zhanshi lance and a micro-campaign based on their exploits, complete with character and BattleMech record sheets suitable for play with Total Warfare and A Time of War: The BattleTech Role-Playing Game.
