Why can I not select ALL??

Succession Wars, 1-3 though rather than stories about the the unstoppable advance of the Davion war machine. ::)

I agree that I would like to have select all.  but I guess for now I wouldn't mind reading more about the re-unification war.

Thank you Hikage

Dark Age. Let's move forward, maybe see some major houses fall and new ones arise, some new legends arise, new famous units/ mercs, etc. (like what I thought was going to happen when Dark Age first came out)

Personally I want to see the Dark Age come back to life.  We were left with a major turning point in the series and then, well, nothing. 

As far as the end of the Star League it would be really nice if Randell Bills or someone else would finish the Exodis story of Kerensky and the SLDF forces.  I would renew my subscription to read those.  Also, the build up to the fall of the Second Star League was simply dropped.  There seems to be a pattern here of starting story lines and dropping them before they get going. 

Anyway, if I had a choice I would say go with Dark Age.  Let's get this war moving forward again.

Mine is actually a combo of 1-4, though, given the choices as are, I would the succession wars.

Fall of the First Star League. It's a great period that sets up quite a bit in the later eras.
Look, dude, when you are a real mechwarrior you don't need to get all dressed up in cooling suits and cool helmets to work on your mech. You just strip down to your 1980s panties and crop top vest and start wrenchin' it.

What I want to see is the Jihad for know, when the last book comes out we can see about books and storys set in other periods.

I don't set an example for others. I make examples of them.

I totally agree O0, my first choice as well.   [applause]

Since that's not the point of the poll I have cast my vote for the option I would most like to see at the present time.

:-X Nope, sorry not telling how I voted.

That's great information, and thank you all for replying, but in the future please re-read the first post and discuss in the appropriate forum thread instead here.
