BattleTech: Dark Age Turning Points: Vega


For the planet Vega, the collapse of the hyperpulse generator network signaled the beginning of four years of chaos. Beset by terrorists, foreign invaders and the shattering of the planetary militia in a devastating civil war, the world descended into a seemingly endless spiral of death and destruction. Ruthless warlords divided the land and fought amongst themselves to claim what little remained of the old Vega. With the Republic suffering its own troubles, there was scant hope of relief from any outside force.

And then the Bears came.

Enacting contingency plans created decades earlier, the Rasalhague Dominion sends its forces to stabilize several worlds of the Republic. But their reception is anything but warm and the Clanners will have to face local resistance and malicious outside influences to save Vega from itself. Isis Bekker and her Raging Bears are up for the task, but will they have the strength and the time to see it through?

Dark Age Turning Points: Vega uses Chaos Campaign rules and gives players the option of fighting individual battles, following a campaign arc, inserting it into their own campaigns and even creating their own scenarios with optional rules to give their games a “Vega flavor.” The ebook includes a detailed map of the world of Vega, a run down of the forces involved in the conflict, and several tracks that players can use to run simple lance-on-lance battles, or stage up to a world-wide invasion. Only the players’ imaginations are the limits.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
