I thought of this idea late last night, and worked out a few bits and bobs of it. Basically a series of short stories, with all different mechwarriors, and the only connecting thread is the mech they pilot.
The battlemech will be called "Eris" after the Greek Goddess of Strife and Discord. The name comes to the first mechwarrior when he sees the serial number of the mech, xxxxx-Er15.
I was thinking making the battlemech a Thunderbolt TDR-5S and starting out as a member of the SLDF during the Amaris Coup.
Thoughts, suggestions, ideas, let me know...
