Summary and Info
Solaris VII - The Game World describes the Game World of Solaris VII and its famous Solaris Games. It was designed as both the next step from the BattleTech boardgame rules and a complete game in itself, providing new rules for arena combat - the 'Mech Duel Rules) that became known as the "Solaris rules".Essentially, under Solaris rules each game turn from the classic boardgame was cut down from 10 seconds to 2.5 seconds and the supposed width of a hex on the gameboard was also divided by four, allowing for micromanagement of what was previously covered in a single turn. This led to a distinctively different performance of some weapons and system under Solaris rules. TICs and additional range brackets were introduced for weapons, as were some new "show" weapons designed specifically for arena combat such as the Claw.Twelve dedicated arena 'Mechs were presented along with record sheets.The set also provided background information for roleplaying adventures on Solaris VII.
