I am a veteran Battletech player from the tabletop days 1986 and on, and tried pretty much all of the other Battletech games out there. I have a small bookcase full of technical manuals and have designed more mechs than I care to remember. I have played tabletop with friends every weekend for years, and to say I've played 1000+ scenarios is an accurate guess.
I plan on resurrecting an old Lance of Mechwarrior characters from my tabletop FASA Battletech days, but I dont have the time to run a complete Mercenary company.
I dont know exactly how arduous it will be to run a Merc Unit with Beta still a ways away, but I know I have enough time to maintain 4-6 mechs, or air support units, along with techs and their day-to-day maintenance.
If there are any Mercenary outfits that have an opening for a Lance in their ranks, let me know.
