Warhammer Blueprint and Lore: Story of the Black Widow, by Randall Bills, is a short story published for MechWarrior Online.

Plot summary[edit]

The short story narrates, from the perspective of the Natasha Kerensky, the start of her ambush by the Bounty Hunter on Le Blanc in 3026 in the Marauder he had previously stolen from her.


Although MechWarrior Online as such does not fall under the current criteria for Canon, the fiction going with the games' "Hero 'Mechs"—written largely by Randall Bills who at the time was also the incumbent BattleTech Line Developer at Catalyst Game Labs—was expressly declared fully canonical. At the same time, the Hero 'Mechs themselves and the configurations offered by MechWarrior Online were still not considered canon beyond what was expressly put down in the fiction pieces.
