In fact, here's a list of all the material produced for April 1 and Halloween over the last few years and where they fall in canon:

XTR: 1945 - World War II was canon. The unit stats and rules are not.
XTR: Royal Fantasy Tournament - Canon. Stats and all.
Adventure: Necromo Nightmare - Canon, but not necessarily as presented due to rules violations.
Adventure: Empires Aflame - Canon before the misjump. Non-canon afterward.
Nebula California - Completely non-canon.
A Time of Peace outline - Non-canon.
Arcade Operations Power-Ups - Non-canon (at present).
Halloween Adventures 2015+ - Suspended, likely non-canon.
April 1 Project 2016+ - Suspended, likely non-canon.

Mech VariantsEdit

Since they are canon, should we add the art and specifications for the mech variants provided to the respective pages for each mech? ~Amaroq Starwind~ (talk) 01:50, 26 March 2018 (EDT)

Technically we should yes but who ever does it has to be very careful in how it is done as not to lose the joke yet at the same time not over state it as we are meant to be factual.--Dmon (talk) 13:19, 26 March 2018 (EDT)
Art? All I see in my copy is a big, red CENSORED stamp where the art would be. There are a handful of images on the record sheets, but those are unmodified from the normal TROs.--Cache (talk) 18:31, 26 March 2018 (EDT)
Well crap... My Google Drive link went to crap, so I can't read my copy on my phone anymore... And downloading a fresh copy is also nearly impossible through my phone... Looks like somebody else will have to collect the information :/ ~Amaroq Starwind~ (talk) 00:13, 28 March 2018 (EDT)
User:Pserratv is putting a lot of time into the Solaris stuff so it might be worth asking him if it is on his radar --Dmon (talk) 03:25, 28 March 2018 (EDT)
It is now :)pserratv (talk) 18:48, 29 March 2018 (EDT)
Good Stuff :-) --Dmon (talk) 13:58, 29 March 2018 (EDT)
Many of the units still need to be updated, especially Gunsmith and Vulpes. ~Amaroq Starwind~ (talk) 01:09, 1 April 2018 (EDT)
Are these mechs & pilots cannon? Or not? I was doubtful on that, and that is why I have amended the arenas (as information is not from Dark Age itself)... but the mechs.pserratv (talk) 11:35, 04 April 2018 (EDT)
Appparently so. I have not read the source material in some time, is it that badly out of whack with the rest of the BTU? I know the fluff is going to be questionably but Ithought the the stats would still be solid. --Dmon (talk) 05:52, 4 April 2018 (EDT)
The stats if I recall correctly are OK. The fluff is strange as it belongs to a period where Solaris belongs to Clan Wolf. pserratv (talk) 11:52, 04 April 2018 (EDT)
It's already stated above that this book is Canon. ~Amaroq Starwind~ (talk) 01:57, 5 April 2018 (EDT)
I've started entering the mechs, after that I'll go for the Tournament and the pilots. I'll do them all :).pserratv (talk) 09:08, 5 April 2018 (EDT)
