Touring the Stars: Lone Star (abbreviated TtS:Lone Star) is the first of a series of supplement Sourcebooks designed to detail worlds featured in 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 features Lone Star's history from being one of the last worlds terraformed by the Terran Hegemony to its demise during the early Succession Wars.

This book marks the beginning of a PDF web exclusive product produced by Catalyst Game Labs to utilize for both players using the A Time of War RPG rules and provides campaign information for players using the Total Warfare series of books as a backdrop for their game.

Publisher's Description[edit]

Cold, desolate, long-abandoned and looted of any treasures centuries ago, Lone Star was once a crown jewel of the Terran Hegemony and bold achievement of terraforming. In Touring the Stars: Lone Star, players learn about Volgadon and the "Pond Cities" and their disparate and fabulous architectures, discover why Lone Star was a major agriculture and manufacturing center for the Terran Hegemony...and read how the horrors of the Amaris Civil War and the First Succession War set this once-great world onto the path towards oblivion.

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.
