Operational Turning Points: Hanseatic Crusade:
Tensions simmered between the Hanseatic League and the new Scorpion Empire for decades before the Hansa lit the spark that led to war. The Khan of Clan Goliath Scorpion knew a simple punitive expedition would be a waste of resources. This would not be a war of reprisal. It would be an all-out crusade for control of Hansa territory. Superior Clan technology pitted against superior numbers of Hansa troops. In such a war, can there truly be a victor? Would two nations be shattered in the conflict, or would a single, new power rise from the ruins?

Operational Turning Points: Hanseatic Crusade opens up the battle for players to join in the fight using the successful Turning Points PDF-exclusive format. This campaign series uses the Chaos Campaign rules and gives players the option of fighting individual Missions and Touchpoints, following a campaign arc, and inserting it into their own campaigns. This PDF includes detailed information on several of the worlds affected by the Scorpion Empire assault, a rundown of the forces involved in the conflict, an overview of the historical campaign, and several tools and tracks that players can use to run characters and battles from this time period. Only the players’ imaginations are the limits.

eBook Availability
Operational Turning Points: Hanseatic Crusade is available from the following eBook/PDF vendors:

Site Patched to 2.20.4:
This agile approach really let's me put things out quick. Or maybe it's because most off it is small. Either way, I do try to get one "cool" feature in each update, no matter how easy to implement. Details of what's included are as follows:

Defects
  • Fixed an issue where you could place weapons such as PPCs, Gauss Rifles, and Autocannons on OmniMechs that still had a lower arm actuator, which is against construction rules.
Changes
  • Modified it so users who can add sources to units (e.g., admins) will now see the latest added product as the default selection in the list, meaning less clicks.
  • Modified the stock image used on Alpha Strike cards, when the unit doesn't have an image associated with it, to be the Atlas head logo seen on the newer products.
  • Modified the frequency with which I ping updated sitemaps to Google such that they now only ping when there is a change.
  • Modified the table which stores bulk download requests to add additional details to be able to better troubleshoot when problems are encountered.
  • Modified the menus so clicking on Weapons & Equipment or Design Quirks immedately takes you to View /Search, thus removing the sub-menus.
Enhancements
  • Added the following additional equipment that was present in Interstellar Operations:
    • Improved PPC, Improved Autocannon (/2, /5, /10, /20), Improved Gauss Rifle
  • Added the following additional fields which users can use to further filter and search for Units:
    • Armor (Model), Chassis (Model), Communications (Model), Date Added, Date Updated, Engine (Model), Equipment (Model), Jump Jets (Model), Jump Jet Type, Manufacturer, Primary Factory, Targeting & Tracking (Model)
  • Added/updated equipment description and stats for the following:
    • C3 Boosted Master, C3 Boosted Slave, C3 Computer (Master), C3 Emergency Master, C3 Remote Sensor Launcher, C3 Slave, Cargo (Insulated, Liquid, and Standard), Improved C3 Computer
  • Added the ability to utilize lookups in the filter dialogs. This was used on most of the new fields added above, but also back-ported to existing fields, such as Armor, Cockpit, etc. By using lookup fields for these, it means less hard-coding of values, and future-proofs the dialogs when customized equipment is allowed.
