Battletech : The Farscape Campaign
Wealthy Andurien Industrialist
A civilian industrialist, Milo Carsebloom is considered the finances behind the sudden development of the Black Hills region into an industrial center for military goods. His company “Carse Technologies Corp (CTC)” is primarily a financial backer of the expansion the foundries in Deadwood have undergone over the past few years, it is rumored he personally oversaw the development of several lines of manufactured goods for export.
Milo Carsebloom is not a combatant, and is considered a Green NPC Tech, though a Veteran NPC Corporate Officer.
Milo Carebloom is Andurien by birth, and made his company and fortunes through the re-building of ruined industrial sites into viable enterprises using local resources and infrastructure to maximize profits. His company, the CTC, came to Claybrooke to invest in new equipment and update the foundries in its remaining mining town of Deadwood. Backing Deadwood Industries with finance and using CTCs construction skills to salvage the remaining industries in the region to rebuild the foundries into viable factories was highly profitable. Recently, Deadwood Industries began exporting a Light Support Machinegun, that was increasingly popular with the planetary militias and as an off-world export; primarily to Milo’s homeworld of Andurien.
With the burgeoning success of Deadwood Industries, it was rumored Milo was moving his operations off-world to another site that had his interest, though the specifics of this were kept very quiet and it has been denied openly by his PR department, that CTC was expanding to a new market.
In the early winter of 3016, the Iron Dingos, following a tip from their contacts, raided Milo’s private munitions train in Profit Pass, capturing him and several of his senior staff in the process. From the train they looted numerous arms, including two newly built Long Tom 3s, all intended to arm the growing Junta of Lt. Colonel Chestine of New Denver. From the information netted in that raid, it became apparent that Milo was arming Chestine’s military, and was indeed moving off-world, bringing with him BPOs of his recent work in Deadwood. It seemed that he knew there was a coming storm and wanted to be away from harm when it hit.
In early 3018, The Iron Dingoes again contacted Carsebloom, asking him to weaponize some Uranium-238 ore the unit had acquired, in exchange for a ton of the same material. He agreed, and the unit dispatched “The Iron Vagabond” and “Betty” on a year-long trip from System – Dumassas to Andurien and back again. They succeeded in the endeavour, notably due to the skills of both the navigational crew aboard the Vagabond, and the sheer bravado of Captain Frank Elgyn and his veteran smuggling crew returning with ten W-85 Nuclear Warheads.
