Timeline at the beginning is set around 1 year before the clan invasion of the inner sphere began. Pls confirm me the date when the invasion started, thanks.
try sarna.net. all sorts of info and with better authority than I can muster. someone on there will actually remember and have references for this stuff.
they get nearly wiped out. Smile If there is no suitable company available, I guess I have to make one up, but I rather use a known one
BT history is littered with mostly dead merc units, it's a common device for BT fiction. known ones tend to have survived and expand into regiments and whatnot. You're probably better off writing your own since the best known ones are probably copyright, oooh, whoever owns the BT fiction IP these days.
They are currently under contract on a world on House Liao, when they are suddenly being attack by their moneygiver (maybe due to an order of Sun Tsu Liao's mad sister, what's her name again ? )
kali. seems unlikely. major houses are unlikely to screw small time bonded merc units. they can of course, but why bother? much easier to screw them when writing the employment contract.
After they escaped, I will have a few missions following against pirates, defectives and blakes sword
word of blake (more religious than military, sorta)
as opposed to comguard and comstar. a sword is WoB's symbol however
defectives? sounds vaguely freebirth/solahma.
The later plan is, that this mercenary group will join prince victor in it's campaign against the smoked jaguar clan, maybe some missions on port arthur, then Diana, and maybe even on Strana Metchy. The story is not set yet in that later state.
kinda reminds me of black thorns. _Main Event_ _DRT_. they start post invasion though.
