The Outer Colonies Regions is a fan a Online Sourcebooks written & produced by long time Battletech player/fan, Starbug (Also known as JA Baker).

The source is based on premise of a book that comes into hands of mysterious conspiracist whom is trying expose information to the public at large. The book itself is about a far flung and lost ego-political component of the Star League whom survived it's parent nation demised. The book is written as a review of this nation-state in Deep Periphery and its current status as of 3046 unbeknownst public at large except for the mystery broker of information and rumor known as Starling.

Originally published on, the sourcebook originally published as a Forum oriented book was written in segments. It will posted here in same manner on the wiki.


"Here is a little something that surprised even me: it seems that somewhere out in the Deep Periphery, past the Chainelane Isles and the Hanseatic League, so far off the map it's almost into the realms of there be dragons!, there may well be a little corner of the old Star League still running along like the last 300 years never happened. I only know about this place because a contact of mine 'acquired' a book about it during a card-game with some independent prospectors in the employ of Interstellar Expeditions, out on Cyclops Station, and thought it might interest me. It was printed on high quality paper, and has the look and feel of a High School text book. Normally I wouldn't even look twice at something like this, but my contact insisted it was legitimate, and I've learnt to trust her instincts on this sort of thing.
So, just who are these so-called Outer Colonies? And where did they come from?
That, as ever, is the 64,000 C-Bill question..."



The book is set canon universe where a non-canon/periphery colonies were established by Star League before its demised. While in in isolation, have no effect as of yet on the Inner Sphere or the Clans (Star League descendants) development until book touches on.
