BATTLETECH is a game of awesome tension.
Massive war machines firing lasers, missiles, and cannons- taking tremendous amount of damage.
Mech with limbs blown off, leaking internals, smoking, burning, and still fighting to the end.
One never knows just what is going to happen in the game, and every now and then, by my odds 1-12 games, something extrodinary happens- smashing the dice gods, breaking the Vegas odds, and turning the flow of the battle in a single moment.
Your craziest BATTLETECH Moment?
A trail of possession.
My two Summoners- Thor and Loki take the field.
They engage a Daishi for a few turns- skirmish with it so my Elementals can get into a better position…
…at least that is the plan.
Daishi fires off missiles…
Two (two!) hit Loki.
Center torso (crit)- snake eyes.
Roll for crit.
Three crits. (!)
Roll for critical damage.
Loki goes down in the first round of shooting.
