As well as featuring a full color topographical map of world, along with a printable version for use with BattleForce 2, New Avalon includes random map tables, as well as suggested optional rules from Tactical Operations.

Finally, record sheets for three unique 'Mechs and three WarShips are included.
|“||In 2796 New Avalon almost fell to the ravening Draconis Combine. Yet House Davion rebounded, becoming one of the most powerful of Houses. Since then Avalon City and the capital of the Federated Suns have stood as a beacon of hope for all mankind.
Then came the Jihad.
Jihad Turning Points: New Avalon fleshes out the details of the conflict surrounding this pivotal world published in various Jihad Plot Sourcebooks. Additionally, players can join one of the myriad of forces fighting for control—and survival—of the Federated Sun's [sic] capital world.
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 with optional rules to give their games a "New Avalon flavor." The ebook includes a detailed map of the world of New Avalon, 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.
