Well, even with Quirks inserted from Strategic Operations, we can't really justify the appearance of weapons so long before their 'official' intro date. SO - no HPPCs, no LPPCs, no LACs, no SNPPCs, etc.
But we have Blazers. Yersh we do. And ERPPC capacitors. We already have fixes for most of the, er, issues on a roster. Intro dates are changing. But I am going to be one writing SOB for the next week.
I still think Rocket Launchers should be available in 3063, and comparing notes with my sources, find that The Powers That Be might have made a mistake on the intro date. Erg. BLEH.
I don't want to turn this book into an XTRO. IMHO, the XTRO machines were so many McGuffins, never intended for players. Ours are meant to see action. So the Quirks, while popular with some, are thus far a no-go. But what do you, the BattleTech reader, think? Keep the Quirks? Leave a note and tell me.
But do hurry. After tomorrow, I am gonna be up to my ass in textual alligators and draining the swamp is not going to be easy....
After all this, we are still on schedule! It's just that we have very little time to effect these changes. Please stand by....
Thanks for stopping in.
