Era ilClan
Timeline 3151 - 3152


Tamar Rising is a sourcebook set during the ilClan era. It covers events within the former Clan Jade Falcon Occupation Zone from January 3151 to June 3152, primarily the rise of small nations and the actions of the Lyran Commonwealth and Clan Hell's Horses. The book also provides detailed backgrounds on important individuals and planets, significant military commands, and rules to build custom scenarios for both Total Warfare & Alpha Strike rulesets.

A poster map is also provided with the book, showing the Hinterlands in June 3152 with borders, star types and jump drive recharge times, distances between systems, and info for important worlds.

Product Description[edit]

Silence falls across the Jade Falcon border, and slowly, reports reach Lyran space: the Clan’s warriors, so long a threat to the Steiner realm, are gone. Powerful ambitions rush to fill the vacuum that follows.

Former Clan citizens both recently assimilated and long conquered grapple with a future no longer defined by the will of the Falcons. An Arcturan general dissatisfied with Tharkad’s ineffective rule forges her own destiny. A Clan denied the glory of Terra redefines itself through battle and conquest. And a mercenary unleashes her reborn command to claim vengeance for past calamities.

Tamar Rising is a BattleTech sourcebook providing full details of the events in the former Clan Jade Falcon Occupation Zone from 3151 to mid-3152. Included are a full historical summary of events in that region of space, personality and unit profiles of key players—many appearing here for the first time, and game information to bring it all to your BattleTech tabletop.
