Loren and I chat about the house of Kurita. Plus some of the other new things they are about to unroll. He also hints what the Kurita Combat manual is about. Plus he tells us about the campaign operations manual – it’s plug n play! He also explains some of the mechanics that set the new Valiant deck builder apart from other card games.

Thanks Loren, It’s always fun talking with you.

I sat down with Loren Coleman @ Origins Game Fair and had a great discussion.  We talked about some CBT, Vikings, The Duke, Jarl, and we even started creating a new set for The Duke.  It was a great time!

I really hope he wasn’t pulling my leg when he said they were going to make a Sherlock Holmes set for The Duke.  It would be so cool to be a part of that!

First I’m sorry this took so long, but I had a lot of unforeseen problems after Origins that prevented me from taking the time to break this down into three parts. For example flooding put our internet provider under water, that makes the whole social media thing pretty difficult.  There were other weather problems but no access to the internet was the worst. But Randall and I did talk at Origins game Fair about nearly everything Catalyst related.  Since Randall had so much to say it was necessary to break it into smaller segments.

  • Sprawl Gangers
  • Battletech and SR box sets
  • Valiant, The Duke, and Hostile Takeover

Part one is about the current trends with Sprawl Gangers. The Skirmish Game that takes place in the Shadowrun Universe. We do chat about Valiant briefly but we come back to it later.

For centuries, the armies of the Great Houses have fought to reclaim the glory of the fallen Star League, sending regiments of their elite MechWarriors into battle across hundreds of worlds as humanity slid inexorably toward a new Dark Age. The coming of the Clans—descendants of the lost Star League army—did little to stem the slaughter. It only raised the stakes.
