Here are our recommendations for the best of the breed. If you get these items and no other, you should be all set to experience the BattleTech or MechWarrior games at their best.
Depending on your preferences and needs, you might like to add in some Tech Readouts, which list dozens of standard 'Mech designs, or Record Sheets, which are ready-for-use 'Mech battle info sheets. Again, these come for standard 'Mechs, but you can make sheets for your own 'Mechs with the blanks included. You can find these items here.
Also, once you decide which nation or group you most like, you'll probably want to learn a little more about them. You can get more information about your group through sourcebooks. These include all sorts of information that can help you to enhance your playing experience. Sourcebooks are divided into three categories at our site, and you can find them here.
The BattleTech universe is downright huge, with more variety and complexity than almost any other I've read about. The best way to discover it is to read about it in story books. Find out what it's like to live in the shoes of an average MechWarrior who abruptly gets catapulted into the spotlight. Or maybe you'd prefer the story of a peace-loving doctor who falls in love with the best warrior in the known universe - and hates herself for it. All these and more can be found in the BattleTech novels.
Well, I guess that's about it. Good luck, good hunting, and always remember: have fun!
