Year 2439

The first BattleMech prototype is produced by the Terran Hegemony. Though merely a shadow of what's to come, it immediately outclasses all other forms of ground warfare.

Year 2570

The Star League is born. An interstellar council formed from constituent factions within the Inner Sphere; it thrives for 200 years before falling apart in Civil War.

Year 2786

The First Succession War begins in the wake of the Star League's collapse. Billions of lives are lost, and technological development begins to regress.

Year 2866

The Third Succession War begins. The development of new technologies has all but ceased; the Great Houses now scavenge and repair existing technologies they barely understand while the Inner Sphere continues to burn.

Year 3015

In the midst of this war, a young pilot inherits what remains of a small Mercenary outfit. This is where your story begins.
