I'm slowly going through all the entries right now. Over 500 entries, and we need to choose about 20. Some pretty hard choices...

"We have made of New Avalon a towering funeral pyre and wiped the Davion scourge from the universe.  Tikonov, Chesterton and Andurien are ours once more, and the cheers of the Capellan people nearly drown out the gnashing of our foes' teeth as they throw down their weapons in despair.  Now I am made First Lord of the Star League, and all shall bow down to me and pay homa...oooooo! Shiny thing!" - Maximillian Liao, "My Triumph", audio dictation, 3030.  Unpublished.

The Second Succession War is coming! Mercenary units will play a central role in this brutal conflict, and we want to feature yours on the war-torn battlefields of the Inner Sphere. Submit your best mercenary unit name to ray@catalystgamelabs.com by March 17. We'll consider it for a mention in the pages of our upcoming sourcebook.

Bird of Prey.

Maybe an aerospace merc unit?
