MORE THAN A CENTURY IN THE MAKING

Since the Clan Invasion of 3050 ended in failure, there have been those who have not forgotten Nicholas Kerensky’s ultimate goal: The conquering of Terra, and the rise of one clan above all others…to become the ilClan, and rule over both the rest of the Clans and the Inner Sphere...

Now, in 3151, two Clans make the final jump into the shattered remains of the Republic of the Sphere. Their target: the cradle of humankind…and the ultimate symbol of the Inner Sphere…Terra. But Clans Jade Falcon and Wolf will face a powerful, tenacious enemy in the remaining forces of the Republic, led by their resurrected leader, Devlin Stone. The impending battle will engulf the entire planet, and when it is over, only one shall stand supreme.

SLDFGeneral Order 137, issued by General Aleksandr Kerensky on 5 October 2785, later known as the Hidden Hope Doctrine, formed the basis for the Clan belief that they would eventually return to the Inner Sphere.

ILCLAN

In 2825, ilKhan Nicholas Kerensky, the founder of the Clans, gave his exiled, warrior-led people a dream: the first Clan to return to the Inner Sphere and claim Terra, the cradle of humanity, in honorable combat would claim the title of ilClan—ruler of all the Clans—and reestablish the venerable Star League from the ashes of the old, and its Khan would become ilKhan, supreme ruler of all the Clans. Now, 326 years later, the Children of Kerensky have fought their way to Terra with the intent of fulfilling this long-cherished dream. But will this dream lead to a destiny fulfilled…or utter destruction?

The IlClan Sourcebook contains everything a BattleTech player needs to know about the brutal, hard-fought battle for the cradle of humanity—Terra. Everything from the various factions warring for control to a timeline of events and information about the campaigns and battles that range across the entire planet is in this brand-new sourcebook.
