While one would mae a terribly great read, that's all it would be. So I picked the one that would also make awesome games. The third is a turd, a total snooze-feast.

All three topics interest me, but a return to the game world in the aftermath of the Jihad? That gets my vote, with Covert Ops coming a close second and Interstellar Expeditions coming a close third.

Hello,

In all of my polls, I never tell you why I'm asking. I see no reason to buck the trend...

Damnit Herb, why do you always make us make these hard decisions and never any easy ones?
I think you take personal enjoyment out of watching us vote for one thing and then mourn over the other things we liked but couldn't vote for. I am on to you man.

 Interstellar Expedition got my vote since the other take place after the Jihad but its still taking about the same dirt that have been dealt with since forever.  Stuff blew up.  People cried.  Stuff got rebuilt.

 I would like to see more people just say "see you never again you crazies" and leave known space far away.  That way we might get something new in the game instead of rehashing everything.

I voted for Solaris, Post-Jihad. I'd like to see what's happened to Solaris after all the big fights between WOB and the various Independent Mechwarriors.


Interstellar Expeditions executing covert ops on Solaris VII?


Actually, that doesn't sound like all that bad an idea, to be honest.  O0  I know you meant it as a joke, but it sounds quite do-able.

To me, Repros are 100% Wrong, and there's NO  room for me to give ground on this subject. I'm not just an Immovable Object on this, I'm THE Immovable Object. 3D Prints are just 3D Repros.

No more nukes now that the Jihad is done, and, I hope the Regulans are out of Salted Nukes.

That was basically my motivations also. Interstellar Expeditions have not been done, so it would add something interesting.

Solaris 7 - too specialized. Plus, we already have sourcebooks and rulebooks about S7.
Covert Ops- after the Jihad with all kinds of covert ops and assassinations, I am in mood for something else.
Interstellar Operations - Yes, that's it! Back to my science-fiction roots. To boldly go where no man has gone before.  ;)

I picked Interstellar Expeditions, because, who wouldn't like a little Indiana Jones in Space, complete with long lost Star League Fortresses filled to the brim with deadly technological traps.

Nah, the real reason is: I like IE for AtoW games, since it gives an excuse to throw a bunch of very different characters together without having to construct a Mercenary unit first.

This!

We have plenty from previous source material for cov-ops and Solaris (and we know theres something in the pipeline about Solaris).

Can we make it a very strong preference not to use nukes?

BattleMechs < Nukes.

This is a game primarily about...BattleMechs!

Thus liberal application of nuclear devices seems...somewhat self defeating.  If I want the nuclear fire option I'll go re read alternate history Cold War era fiction.


Yea, it really is that fast....

Oh, about the poll:  Solaris is something I can get behind because I know what I'm asking for.

IE sounds pretty dang interesting too, done right, but without further information or clarification Solaris gets my vote.
