I’m looking for an online platform playing with others. We are playing ‘A Time of War’ which is ‘BattleTech’. It should be free and not too complicated. Anybody has some experiences? I heard about MegaMek and MekHQ, but I don’t know how they are.
BattleTech & MechWarrior used to be ‘mini combat’ & ‘rpg’ respectively; and have gone through various versions; changing core aspects of the game & how the math works. In MechWarrior, here’s what I remember:
Characteristics Attributes Athletic 18-Bld-Ref Build Physical 18-Itn-Ref Reflexes Intuition Mental 18-Itn-Lrn Learn Social 18-Itn-Cha Charisma
But in some of the older “scenario/lore” books, I find reference to the following “stats”:
Which source book(s) describes the above stats? (note: I know the “scenario/lore” books ‘use/list’ them, but they take it for granted “what they mean” and/or “how they’re used”.)
How are the two related?.. 20+ years ago, I vaguely remember that one of the many books had ‘how to convert’ in the back; but it’s been too long so perhaps I’m mistaken.
