Trivia

It's interesting to note, considering that this game marks the birth of the now famous sci-fi simulation games based on the Battletech universe, that in FASA's original p&p products games, the Mechwarrior modules were actually the rpg spin-off books based on the Battletech franchise!! Instead of piloting Mechs like the basic Battletech board game, you created specific characters like spies, pilots, commandos, etc. and developed them on a collection of adventures in classic D&D fashion.

Mechwarrior had music in it, but was only played when you were at the bar or transporting to another location. A bit odd...
