i have to agree, the legend of the jade falcon trilogy covers this very well. aiden pryde rocks

Gu4rdles, a few wrong points there...

They do only become warriors after the trial, but they're still warrior-caste, unless they can't prove their worth.

Trueborns have 2 parents. The Bloodname is always from the female parent, so Aidan's mother was a Pryde. Ter Roshak knew Aidan's father or something and blah blah.

If a mech cadet defeats 1 opponent in their trial, they become a mechwarrior. if they defeat 2, star commander; 3 is star captain. Natasha Kerensky is the only person to ever have 4 kills in an initial ToP, and she became Star Colonel.

Trueborn sibkin can be full-blood siblings, half-blood, or even not related at all depending on the circumstances (i.e. the sibko was trimmed down a lot early on and merged with another sibko). Trueborns don't really give a rat's ass though, becuase, to them, there is no such thing as family. No fathers, no mothers, no brothers, no sisters, just The Clan.

Freeborns can be ranking officers, but there's a lot of prejudice against it. They *can* and *do* contribute to the genepool though; if a freebirth is from a warrior line (say a Truscott-line warrior dropped to the scientist caste, had a child with another trueborn, or even a regular scientist, and raised that child to be a warrior and put them into a freeborn sibko and so on) gets through the grand mele held for the 16th (i think it's 16th) position available for the Trial of Bloodright and then wins the final battle, said freebirth would hold a bloodname and pass their genes on to the next batch of trueborns. This keeps the trueborn genepool from stagnating.

Way of the Clans is a novel by Robert Thurston, it's the first book of the Legend of the Jade Phoenix trilogy, which has Aidan Pryde as it's main character.
It introduces him moving to the 2nd stage of training, where he meets his instructor, Joanna, and she hates him.

CSA- Relena (Trouble) was our version of Joanna IoI

Hated everyone, took chit from no one, and a damn good pilot.

Never read about any Freebirth contributing to the genepool, I don't think they can, due to them not being allowed. About fighting for a bloodname, where did you read that. Freebirths are excluded. Pryde was allowed because he was trueborn first.

Horse for example knew he nvr could get a bloodname or contribute.

"MechWarrior 3 RPG: Guide to the Clans" pg. 63

"FREEBORN WARRIORS AND BLOODNAMES
Freeborn warriors can claim Bloodnames through various methods. For example, Clan leasders may pronounce the warrior the progenator of a new Bloodname. Such pronouncements are rare occurances, however, generally reserved as the ultimate reward for a truly remarkable accomplishment. The best-knows example of freeborn warriors bring thus honored is the Bloodnaming of Jamie and Joshua Wolf by the Wolf Clan. Similarly, an ilKhan may create a Bloodname to reward a warrior who successfully completes a particularly important mission.
Alternativly, freeborn warriors who posses DNA comparable to a trueborn's may win a Bloodname ina Trial of Bloodright. In a recent test case a Jade Falcon warrior name Diana was allowed to compete for the Pryde Bloodname. Diana was the freeborn offspring of two trueborns from the same sibko, though only one - the legendary Aidan Pryde - retained warrior status."

From "The Clans - Warrios of Kerensky" pg. 37
"THE CLAN EUGENICS PROGRAM
...Several methods exist by which a freeborn warrior can theoretically claim a Bloodname -I [Phelan Kell] am living proof of that- but I leave the details of such practices to the following section. Occasional use of genetic material from those few freeborns talented enough to win a Bloodname allows for the introduction of new genes into the pool and prevents stagnation of the warrior caste."


oh, and i was wrong, its 32nd, not 16th

Thank you very much Kiriko. I cant get my hands on most books due to their unavailability in my country. Even the American Book Centre and Amazon UK cant deliver them. Amazon.com can, but 2nd hand books are not in my interest range.

I've read some stuff online and the books i can get are all getting reread 1x year like all the others in my bookcase. :)

MW3 RP, any links?

there are PDF versions of the manuals around, on the internet, nudge nudge, wink wink, if you know what i mean, guvna
...like the battlecorps battleshop where you can buy them in pdf or paper

of course, battleshop doesnt have everything, thats what the other part of the internet (not the porn part) is for.

It even happens, that a sibko gets almost entirely wiped out. See Mechwarrior Dark Age. Galaxy Commander Malvina Hazen wiped out her entire Sibko who wanted to kill her brother Alexandr Hazen. Jade Falcons are vicious raptors and their sibko training is ruthless.
