Touring the Stars: Manassas (abbreviated TtS:Manassas) is the fifth in 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. In this book, Mr. Habeas writes up the world of Manassas. Founded by the Terran Alliance, later ruled as part of the Federated Suns, this book gives the world's history and current situation during the early part of the Early Republic Era, or better known as the Dark Age era.

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 a campaign information for players using the Total Warfare series of books as a backdrop for their game.

Publisher's Description[edit]

The victim of a devastating cosmic impact and war, Manassas is still one of the Inner Sphere’s safest planets, except for the so-called “Dead Zones” dotting the world. In Touring the Stars: Manassas, players will learn about the famed Manassas Run, an annual world-spanning treasure hunt for valuable LosTech where anything goes and the prize of becoming Run Champion is all that matters.

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.
