Description[edit]

Touring the Stars: Iron Land (shorted as TtS:Iron Land) is the fourteenth in a series of supplemental Sourcebooks designed to detail worlds featured in the BattleTech Universe. The book is part of a series of in-universe profiles of articles written by Professor Bertram Habeas, in his series of books collectively known as Touring the Stars.

The book tells the tale of a lost but still inhabited world of Iron Land, which originated as a Rim World Republic penal colony and later a world forgotten to most with exception of thrill seekers hoping to be victimized by the world's inhabitants in their ritualistic right of passage via pranks on outsiders.

This book is the part of a line of PDF web-exclusive products produced by Catalyst Game Labs both for players using the A Time of War RPG rules and players using the Total Warfare series of books as a backdrop for their game.

Publisher's Description[edit]

Billed as a lost world paradise for thrill seekers and wannabe explorers, Iron Land has a dark history seldom spoken of, as those who know of it either never live to tell the tale, or live to profit from it. The dark history of this tortured world both resonates with, and haunts those drawn to it from across the stars. Iron Land is a planet where you can check out any time you like, but never leave.

Touring the Stars is a whistle-stop tour of the universe! Every system and planet where mankind treads in the BattleTech universe has a story, for those with the drive to explore it. Take a tour of the stars humanity now calls home, experience awesome new worlds, immerse yourself in the local civilization, and prepare to do battle in exotic locales.
