Dear Readers, as you may well have guessed, Battletech has been a big part of my hobby lately. Like, a big part.
In any case, I browse and occasionally post in the r/battletech subreddit. During a particular conversation between myself and another Redditor, whom I won’t name, he expressed willingness to trade his Legendary MAD-3R *Marauder* of Grayson Death Carlyle, with cards.
I told him something to the effect of “Seriously, I’m interested! Let’s move this to direct messages!”
After some negotiation, I traded him a *Commando* and a *Rifleman* for the Legendary *Marauder*.
After we swapped addresses, I soon ended up at the UPS store, sending him my two ‘mechs. Then I waited. Due to weather and his work schedule, there were many delays. Then I got the message “Dropship inbound!” followed by the USPS tracking number. It arrived today.
Here’s what I got!
First, his note-
Very sweet of him. He really didn’t have to do what he did, and I wish to one day repay him. Because of what else he sent…
As well as:
For scale, with what I actually traded for…
All in all, it was a great trade, and I am happy to have a new friend, albeit halfway across the country!
Hope you liked this post as much as I enjoyed writing it!
What do you think, Dear Readers? Did I make a good trade? Let me know in the comment section below!
Until next time, Dear Readers…
