Tex Talks Battletech : Exodus to Elementals – A Primer on the Clans [Part 1]

#Battletech #BattletechHistory #BattletechLore

Tex of the Black Pants Legion here. This episode of Tex Talks Battletech was initially on elementals and only elementals. However, viewer interest and many questions persuaded me to expand the scope of the lesson to include a primer on the clans. This is Part 1 of that series, entitled Exodus to Elementals: A Relatively brief Primer on the clans. Exodus to Elementals will cover the history of the SLDF from pre-exodus to landfall in the Kerensky Cluster, and beyond. Exodus to Elementals will cover their history, culture, and way of life. Part 1 of this series took a hell of a lot of effort and was only possible through the efforts of my team, and the amazing support of my fanbase. Further, to write this series I did consult with the actual author of the material, and heard their opinions and insight before finishing my initial draft. Thanks to Blaine Pardoe for his wit and wisdom, and if you don’t know who he is – shame on you. Anyways, here’s part one of a guide series on clan lore, clan history, clan weird stuff, the end of the SLDF and anything else I got lost on.

That being said, Welcome to Exodus to Elementals: A relatively brief primer on the clans (Part 1)

The Patreon, where you fund this stuff. Think twice about this, I mean, afterall I hope you’re doing your best for yourself before sending money to a stranger on the internet.

The Twitter. Which is used for shitposting. Seldom will I say anything of note there.

Want to know what the hell is going on or what I’m working on? The Patreon and BPL Community Page on youtube are your best bets for that information.

This channel is not brought to you by Audible, Skillshare, Dollar Shave Club (men don’t shave), Raid Shadow Legends or any of that crap. This channel IS brought to you by the fanbase and only the fanbase. Like PBS but with a hell of a lot more swearing.

Oh, and clan-fans… please consider this is a work of opinion. I did present both sides of many arguments, but I reserve the right to hate fictional space weirdos. To develop this opinion I consulted with the guy who wrote it. Blaine. Thank you.

Also never trust cappellans. Ever. Seriously.
