Of Jade Falcons and Blood Spirits

Hoi People!

The city of Groningen, in the North of the Netherlands, has been my home for 7 years and so I still have great friends over there. From last Monday 'till yesterday I have visited them and played 2 super games of classic battletech. My Jade Falcons had to recon Blood Spirit forces and then, in the second battle, had to break through their defences. I succeeded in the first objective but failed in the last.

As these pictures show the battles were pretty intense. My gaming buddy and me have devised a fast-play system and so the games excelled in speed and slaughter.

What I love is that we have also devised elaborate background stories and since our pilots gain experience points with each game they are evolving characters and make for a fun game.

Cheers Sander

Listening to: "Icky Thumb" by the White Stripes, simply brilliant.
