Tales of the Mimetic Badarses - Dark History

Title: Tales of the Mimetic Badarses - Dark History
Series: Battletech/Mechwarrior
Originally Published: September 2013, Classic Battletech Forums

Like Chasing Shadows, this chapter was a long time in coming. Unlike Chasing Shadows, which sprang pretty much fully-formed into the world, Dark History went through a long and complicated gestation period in which the basic ideas were written and re-written numerous times. By the time it was done, it had been built up and then stripped back several times.

As a story, Dark History sis obviously out of the regular schedule, but none the less is intended to go straight after Chasing Shadows. It both ends the current story arc and sets up the next one, but at the same time takes a rather unusual approach to doing such.
