Welcome to the home of the 1st Crucis Recon! We are an online gaming community, which originally came into being playing Mechwarrior: Online.
In 2017 we expanded into a multi-gaming community, and many members play numerous additional titles including 7 Days to Die, BattleTech, PUBG, Stellaris and Warframe, and many others. Since late-2018, we have formally added two additional core games to our line-up, within which we have significant 1CR participation: Destiny 2 and Elite: Dangerous
In addition, we either run or participate in several fortnightly online roleplaying sessions, primarily using the Pathfinder, Starfinderand MegaMek systems. We're continually updating and restructuring our website to reflect our changing membership, so please check back regularly!
Within Mechwarrior: Online, 1st Crucis Recon is a Mercenary Unit. Although we are based within House Davion space, we freely contract with most IS and Clan forces, as well as fighting in the competitive MRBC leagues. Additionally, we participate in actions by larger, allied IS forces such as the ComGuards (at Tukayyid) and New SLDF. We have a strong mix of highly-effective veteran pilots and new blood, emphasizing camaraderie and a friendly atmosphere above all.
Feel free to drop into our TeamSpeak 3 Server at:voice2.gamingdeluxe.co.uk:10003 (password: mac). You'll find a friendly atmosphere that is nevertheless competitive within various settings
As well as being an Online Community, 1st Crucis Recon and its membership have held a number of real-life 'meet and greets' in recent years, with venues including St. Louis, Atlanta, Dublin (Ireland) and a small town somewhere in Kansas...!
Our most recent get-together was at DragonCon 2018, when around 10 of us met-up over the course of a long weekend (with most sharing a rental house east of Atlanta for the week). During their Con, we conducted numerous drops in the famous MechCorps simulator pods, as seen right-of-screen. Many of the MechCorps staff now have 1CR pin badges, worn as an 'allied' unit. Plans are well in hand for a potential return to the Con in 2019, while 2020 is expected to see many members visit the central US (for top secret reasons).
Various members were friends or colleagues prior to joining the unit, and we have several family groups and partnerships within our ranks. We have members ranging in age from approximately 15 to over 60, and actively encourage a wide and inclusive demographic within our Community. We hope you'll consider joining us!
