Dark Age: Republic Worlds (3130) is a compilation file in PDF format for what was originally a subsection of pages presented on LinkNet, the official website for the MechWarrior: Dark Age (MWDA) game. The individual pages were writeups detailing some of the various planets that made up the Republic of the Sphere in the year 3130. The 251-page document has no cover features and no introduction, and is broken up into ten sections by Prefectures following the structure of the Republic of the Sphere.
After Topps, Inc. discontinued the game and took the MWDA website down, Catalyst Game Labs began to host the entries, compiled into a single downloadable PDF document initially titled Dark Age: Republic Worlds (3130) and later, after the main BattleTech website was moved and the download section altered, simply DA Republic Worlds.
As the document has no actual formal page devoted to contents, this section is subdivided into subsections after the prefectures of the presented worlds.
Several pages are devoid of any information other than the world's name and the statement "No description for this world." This was also the original LinkNet content. It may be presumed these pages would have been developed as the original website grew. Entries marked with an asterisk (*) in this article had this line and were otherwise presented as blank pages.
- This product contains a detailed entry for the planet "Hoan" as a part of Prefecture IV, which doesn't appear on maps. However, there is a planet named Hean on maps in the correct area, so this is probably a typo.
- Although a page within the Prefecture X region is entitled "Epsilon" the entry actually refers to Epsilon Indi in the text.
