Welcome Karuza-san. When you were HL in EGA I was in the 5th Syrtis Fusilier for House Davion. Talk about credit card burn out
I realized while scrolling through this thread is that I had posted but did not give any pertinent information about myself.
Started my Battletech career when a friend gave me several compressed games on 5 1/4 in disks (large floppies!!!) that included the original Mechwarrior with no code book. To enter the game one had to enter 3 words made up of the military alphabet, such as Foxtrot Tango Yankee. Hit the book stores, from the manuals to the novels to discover that and through trial and error was able to learn at least 3 different combinations that allowed me into the game. So I have collected 99% of the novels, sourcebooks, etc and enough miniatures to hold me down if dropped into lake.
Originally played MPBT EGA in 91/92 for House Davion. Went from 5th Syrtis Fusilier to Davion Heavy Guard. Was lots of fun til CCB
Played beta Solaris before it went live on AOL. Gravitated around the Davion sector but ran into many rude and unfriendly Davions. So stayed a lone wolf until I ran into Tsunami (he went about another name but not able to locate that information) during a series of drops who asked me to join his then merc unit, TSI, whose aim as to join a House since mercs would not available for sometime.
For those wondering, in EGA a person wishing to go merc had to reach a specific rank in a House military and C-bills, and that was the expectation with MPBT SVGA. Solaris was supposed to simply be the combat engine while we waited for the Community Warfare part which never happened. The community made due with what we had, running a weekly Solaris Succession Wars and tourneys with the most regular one being the Solaris Lance League.
TSI, after several meetings with Skies, joined House Kurita as a probational unit SOK, Sentinels of Kurita, then eventually we became 13th Rasalhague Regulars and I was a company commander. Eventually promotions saw me as the RCO for 13th RR. From there was promoted to DXO RMD, cross moved to DXO BMD then DCO PMD. Became HXO after Roller became HL when Rude Rich, translated as Burai Yutaka, stepped down. Eventually stepped up to HL position. When 3025 came into being I stepped down to the HXO position when RR stepped back into the HL position.
I enjoyed combat drops and learned to delegate others for community events. It was always interesting to run into people who thought I was an easy pawn, much to their regret. I enjoyed piloting a banshee, grasshopper and orion. The grasshopper was fun to pilot and I helped convert several people to utilize the grasshopper instead of the standard cat C1/K2 and the marauders.
Again, I wish to welcome everyone to the Draconis Combine Mustered Soldiery of House Kurita, those who were with the DCMS in other incarnations, those who have switched to HK and then those who have only recently joined this universe and this great house.
Again, youkoso (bows)
