The Wars of Reaving is a Jihad-era sourcebook covering the events that closed off the Home Clans from further contact with the Inner Sphere, as hinted at in various Dark Age sources.


During the Jihad era, contact with the Clans in Kerensky Cluster was lost. Scant reports from Intel retrieved would reveal that the Clans in that distant realm of space are engaged in intense conflict. The conflict would leave the Invading Clans residing in the Inner Sphere cut off from all contact with their distant home.

The Wars of Reaving sourcebook covers the mysterious events that unfolded in Clan Space with new added information to allows for player campaign. The book also provides character profiles, new units, Chaos Campaign and Warchest rules, maps and other miscellaneous information.

From the back coverEdit

Descendants of the Star League Defense Force, they returned to the Inner Sphere in 3050 with violence and honor. Stalled by the combined might of the Inner Sphere, the Clans have been waiting for the chance to strike for Terra once more. But fractures within Nicholas Kerensky’s Great Society have widened. A new enemy threatens to destroy the Clans once and for all: themselves. The resulting Wars of Reaving touches every Clan: some will be destroyed, all will be forever altered.

The Wars of Reaving sourcebook details the Clans from 3067 through the end of the Jihad era and includes detailed reports, faction updates, personalities, units, and equipment that have a hand in this widespread orgy of war. Essential gameplay statistics, maps, and a complete campaign allow players to immerse themselves completely within these Wars of Reaving.
