Hid buildings behind woods/hills
After a lot of discussion and wrangling with the Lyrans (and not a small amount of internal disagreement), we wound up convincing them to place their HQ buildings behind some hills with a muddy swamp to the north.

Their defensive garrison isn't too impressive - other than the defensive turrets, they have a Karnov UR Gunship (which is basically a flying machine gun platform), a Drillson hovertank and a Partisan, which is basically an 80-ton technical with four AC/5s. But it could have been worse, they could have put in Vedettes instead.

El Guapo also happens to have brought a pair of Galleon 102s from our growing stock - they're rolling off the local assembly lines even as the Jade Falcon dropships hit the ground. Alpha-Strike is tasked with air superiority.
Spoiler:

Our units can deploy anywhere on the map. The only restriction is that at least one of our mechs must deploy within six hexes of a building.

To those participating (I believe there are six), we have four mechs, four tanks (Drillson, Partisan, 2x Galleon), a VTOL and three aerospace fighters. Nominate the unit that you want to drive (El Guapo gets first dibs on the Marauder). If you're picking tanks, you get to drive two. I'll assign the VTOL randomly unless someone has a strong preference. Collisions can be either resolved by mutual agreement or I'll roll a die.

Once you've figured out who's driving what, specify deployment coordinates. Keep in mind the Jade Falcon ground force is coming in from the north.

Also, in spoiler tags, nominate the hex containing the HQ.

The four objectives are:
- Eliminate Jade Falcon commander unit (the Loki)
- Prevent the destruction of the HQ hex
- Destroy or cripple 50% of the opposing force (does not include aerospace fighters)
- Prevent the destruction of 50% of our force (does not include aerospace fighters or turrets)

----

Pro tips for tank operators:
Tanks are height 1, rather than mechs, which are height 2, so you can hide behind level 1 hills. Also, tanks don't track heat, so if you can shoot at something, do so.

The Drillson is a hovertank, so it'll easily glide over all the swamps and mud. Use your maximum movement, but do keep in mind that, if you're into "flank" speed, every time you turn then enter a new hex, that's a PSR where failure results in a skid in the direction you were moving before the turn. Use the hills for cover and dart in to attack vulnerable targets in the rear arc.

The Partisan is a long-range turret. Probably not as long-range as some of the clan units, though.

The Galleons are basically throwaway crap, best used in an ambush role, then running away as best as they can.

The VTOL is one of the most terrible VTOL designs I've seen. Use it to mildly annoy enemy units and absorb a little firepower before the inevitable ammo explosion evaporates it. It's subject to the same skid rules as the hovertank, but can change elevations at a cost of 1 MP per level. Move at max speed each turn or die.

Rules refresher:

Target at weapon's
short range: +0
medium range: +2
long range: +4
minimum range: (minimum weapon range - range to target + 1)
e.g. if you're firing a PPC at something 3 hexes away, the to-hit modifier is 3 - 3 + 1

Modifiers for "to-hit" target numbers:
You walked: +1
You ran: +2
You jumped: +3
You sprinted: can't fire

Target moved:
3-4 spaces: +1
5-6 spaces: +2
7-10 spaces: +3
11-14 spaces: +4
15+ spaces: +5 (there are higher mods, but nobody goes that fast in this scenario, unless you guys pick a VTOL and roll a Ferret)

"Woods" between you and your target (not including your hex):
+1 per light woods
+1 per foliage at level 1 or higher if attacker is mech at level 0

Mech standing directly behind partial cover (level 1 hill, level 1 building) from attacker: +1, leg hits negated

Hull Down:
costs 2 MP
cannot kick
having partial cover grants an additional +1 penalty to hit hull-down units
costs 2 MP and a PSR to get back up (failure results in remaining hull down)

Entering depth 1 water costs 3MP, and you cannot go into a run
(1MP for movement, 1 MP for changing height, 1 MP for water)

Entering mud costs +1 MP if you're on the ground (hover or VTOL movement ignores this). Tracked vehicles have to make a PSR to avoid bogging down.
Entering swamp costs +1 MP if you're on the ground. All ground units have to make a PSR to avoid bogging down. Jumping into a swamp automatically gets you stuck. If you get stuck in a swamp, there's a small chance it's actually quicksand, which sucks you down and takes you out of the game unless you break free within a turn.

Sprint: move at 2x your walk MP, but take penalties to PSR, are easier to hit and cannot fire weapons.

Some of the clan units have the SPA Speed Demon: add +1 to run MP, add +2 to sprint MP, cannot fire weapons when active.

We are playing using "rapid fire autocannons", which means an autocannon can be rapid-fired, behaving like an Ultra AC, but with a 3/36 chance of jamming and 1/36 chance of the round exploding in the barrel.

Heat Chart:
5: -1MP
8: -1 to attack rolls
10: -2MP
13: -2 to attack rolls
14: shutdown check, trivial
15: -3 MP
17: -3 to attack rolls
18: shutdown check, easy
19: ammo explosion check
20: -4 MP

I'll take myself (the Marauder). Given that, do I also pick another unit, or just the one mech?

I'm fine with letting Leraje and/or Clanwolfer pick where the HQ goes, given that they seem pretty knowledgeable about this sort of thing.

Did you mean me when you said "Clanwolfer"?

Nick, do swamps impose penalties to hit like woods do?

To those controlling the mechs, our plan of action should probably be to hide behind the height 2 hills until the Clan mechs get within our normal PPC range (either 12 for medium PPC range or 18 for Long), because otherwise they will just shoot us up on the way in with their ER PPCs.

Fury and Guru (our Guillotine and Thug mechs) have jump jets, our Marauder and Awesome don't. So I advise starting either the Awesome or the Marauder on tile 0718 (to the left of the leftmost building) to use the hill as cover and act as a long range turret basically.

We should keep the chopper back until the 2 medium mechs deploy the battle armor that they are presumably carrying, because battle armor is the only thing the Chopper might actually do something against.

The only other thing I can think of is that I think we should have the leftmost building be the HQ.
The order is- Lady Harrington, and no mercy!

Nope, just movement penalties for ground-bound units.

Heh, since tanks seem to be in such a high demand over mechs, I can take one of the "free" mechs (AWS prefered) :)

1916 does look like a good HQ spot.

Question to all of the involved parties - are we planning to humor clan RoE or go for a free-for-all?

Whatever favors us, I guess. My general sense is that the Clan's RoE were helpful to the Inner Sphere forces at the end of the day, as it prevented the Clans from just swarming the inner sphere forces with superior units.

Ok, looks like the unit assignments and deployment coordinates are as follows (although only El Guapo has picked the latter so far):
El Guapo - Marauder - 0718
Leraje - Awesome
Isgrimnur - Guillotine
Stefan - Thug
Siljanus - Drillson, Galleon, Karnov VTOL
Gbasden - Partisan, Galleon

edit: also, introducing 'hull down' rules in the rules refreshing section. Basically you can take a knee to get a little extra protection from low hills and low buildings.

Two mechs enter visual range. One of them is fuzzy on the scanners, but visually looks like a Warhammer - a pair of what are obviously PPCs on each arm, plus a bevy of short-range weapons. It lumbers in from the northeast, stepping up a hill.

The second mech to enter visual range is extremely fast, its speed equivalent to a Spider, although its mass reads as 40 tons. It appears to have five little dudes clinging to it as it fires up its rather impressive jump jets and closes half the distance to the buildings we're defending in a single bound.

Overhead, our aerospace fighters engage a pair of Clan fighters, but both groups are currently above our maximum targeting range.

In that case, onward to 1412 and light it up with all PPCs. Think I have a better chance to hit it than Viper.

Can I hit 2100 from where I am? I think so?

I'll fire both PPCs and the Gauss at the Dragonfly, while staying still.

Guillotine only has 4 JJ, so you can't reach column 18. Unless you meant 1613 (two hexes directly east of the Awesome?)

Sorry the 16s look so much like 18s.

Looks like a mistake on my part. Guillotine should be a 4/6/4.

edit: lol looks like I copy+pasted from the last scenario we did, where everyone basically got a bonus 1 walk mp from low gravity. Adjusted the stats to what they actually should be.
