The fifth entry in the PDF-exclusive Field Report series, Field Report: LAAF provides a faction update for the status of the Lyran Alliance's Armed Forces and recall brief accounts of their actions from beginning of the Jihad to 3079. The report is presented similarly to previous sourcebooks such as Field Manual: Lyran Alliance and Field Manual: Updates.
Over ten years ago, as the second Star League died, the Word of Blake unleashed its wrath against the combined realms of the Inner Sphere and the Clans. Using every weapon in their arsenal, from strategic misdirection and the exposure of state secrets, to biological, nuclear, and chemical attacks, the Word’s war struck every power where it hurt most. Factories were razed, capitals fell, and loyalties were shattered.
But eventually, the leaders of the Inner Sphere’s ancient warring factions recognized the true threat, and united behind a bold new freedom fighter to bring down the Word of Blake’s bastion of power: Terra. Though the war still rages on, and the Blakists’ Master yet lives, the followers of Devlin Stone know all too well that victory today may only pave the way for the wars of tomorrow.
Field Report: LAAF describes the state of the Lyran Alliance in the wake of the events described in Jihad Hot Spots: Terra, including the overall military and logistical condition of one of the Great Houses who stood against the Word of Blake menace. Mauled by the Word of Blake and the Clans alike mere months after the end of a bloody civil war, the battle weary House of Steiner now struggles to recover its strength at the dawn of a new era…
