Archer Blueprint and Lore, by Randall Bills, is a short story published for MechWarrior Online.

Plot summary[edit]

The short story provides the inner monologue of Morgan Kell during his famous duel with Yorinaga Kurita in 3016, as well as during his later struggles at St. Marinus House on Zaniah III to understand the Phantom 'Mech phenomenon which occurred during that duel.


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.
