Racked by civil wars for centuries, House Marik?s Free Worlds League endured through the tenacity and diversity of its people. Now, under the strongest Captain-General in half a millennia, House Marik has stretched its wings, pushing the shadows of its influence across the Inner Sphere. Whether through its revitalized military, or an economic might that challenges even the ages-old dominance of House Steiner, the eagle soars proudly, as do the people who wave its banner. The second in a new, dynamic Classic BattleTech series, Handbook: House Marik compiles the crucial history, politics and cultures of the Inner Sphere?s first Great House. More than just a sourcebook, Handbook: House Marik includes rules for both Classic BattleTech and Classic BattleTech RPG campaigns, including new support vehicles, creatures, personnel weapons, life paths and more!
