Chaos Irregulars 1: Chaos Born
The battlefields of the 31st century are commanded by the BattleMech¸ twelve-meter-tall¸ 100-ton bipedal engines of destruction. Fought by MechWarriors¸ commanded by neo-feudal officers¸ owned by national governments and band of mercenaries¸ loyal to one of the interstellar Successor States or the martial Clans¸ these 'Mechs make every other ground combat vehicle obsolete.
This is the warfare of fusion-powered giants.
This is BattleTech.
The Chaos Irregulars are mercenaries¸ born on the battlefields of the planet Acamar at the dawn of the Word of Blake's horrific Jihad. Orphans of shattered mercenary battalions¸ they were forged in the crucible of combat into one of the most reliable mercenary battalions in the Inner Sphere.
Chaos Born: Book One of the Chaos Irregulars chronicles the battalion's formation and first few contracts¸ battling intrigue¸ betrayal and other BattleMech mercenaries. First published on the BattleCorps fiction site¸ these stories comprise the first half of a duology that will culminate in Chaos Formed: Book Two of the Chaos Irregulars.
