The first in the Historical Turning Points series, the PDF web exclusive Historical Turning Points: Galtor revisits The Galtor Campaign scenario pack through the popular Jihad Turning Points format. The ebook contains seven unique Chaos Campaign tracks that players can use to form a campaign arc detailing the Federated Suns desperate defense of the planet from Draconis Combine.

As well as featuring a full color topographical map of world, along with a printable version for use with BattleForce 2, Galtor includes random map tables, as well as suggested optional rules from Tactical Operations. It also has a listing of the units involved in the campaign and suggestions for which random assignment tables to use for each in addition to optional force abilities. Finally, record sheets for three Combat Vehicles and four BattleMech variants are included.

From the back cover[edit]

A Star League Prize!

Several years before titanic events erupted into the Fourth Succession War, the last significant battle of the Third Succession War took place in 3025, on the sleepy, border world of Galtor.

Hanse Davion, Prince of the Federated Suns, attempted to regain control of the stalemate along his border with House Kurita by leaking the existence of a fake hidden Star League cache on Galtor. Once the Dragon took the bait, House Davion forces would spring their trap. Yet when a real Star League cache is found, all bets are off and Davion forces are fighting for their lives, while attempting to secure the ancient ruins that could hold ancient treasures!

Historical Turning Points: Galtor extracts the sourcebook details from the classic Galtor Campaign scenario pack and represents it in the phenomenally successful Jihad Turning Points: PDF exclusive format. Return to an earlier time in BattleTech history, when centuries of Succession Wars have honed an animosity to a razor’s edge between the Great Houses of Davion and Kurita!

This campaign series uses the Chaos Campaign rules and gives players the option of fighting individual battles, following a campaign arc, inserting it into their own campaigns and even create their own scenarios. This PDF exclusive includes a detailed map of the world of Galtor, a run down of the forces involved in the conflict, and several tracks that players can use to run simple lance-on-lance battles, or stage up to a world-wide invasion. Only the players’ imaginations are the limits.
