Timeline 3151
Preceded by Shattered Fortress


The IlClan era sourcebook IlClan is second of two sourcebooks/scenario packs that details the beginning years of the ilClan era in the year 3151. The included events are the invasion of Sol System and Terra itself involving the forces of Clan Wolf, Clan Jade Falcon, and the remaining forces of the Republic of the Sphere. The book gives in detail the conflict in-system and on Terra to determine who shall be the ilClan.

Included in the book are Maps, Touchpoints for Chaos Campaign type scenarios, Mini-Technical Readout: on new Clan 'Mechs, and their record sheets.

From the back cover[edit]

In 2825, ilKhan Nicholas Kerensky, the founder of the Clans, gave his exiled, warrior-led people a dream: the first Clan to return to the Inner Sphere and claim Terra, the cradle of humanity, in honorable combat would claim the title of ilClan—ruler of all the Clans. The ilClan would reestablish the venerable Star League from the ashes of the old, and its Khan would become ilKhan, supreme ruler of all the Clans. Now, 326 years later, the Children of Kerensky have fought their way to Terra with the intent of fulfilling this dream. But will this dream become destiny or nightmare?

Delve into what it means to be the ilClan, and experience the tumultuous Battle of Terra, which will shake the very foundations of the Inner Sphere. Then catch a glimpse of how the Great Houses and other major powers will face the outcome of this far-reaching conflict. Tactical maps, Chaos Campaign tracks, and new 'Mechs that debuted during the Battle of Terra all let you jump right into the cockpit and fight in the culmination of over three centuries of Clan history. Do you have what it takes to conquer the birthplace of humankind, or the courage to defend Terra from its enemies?
