* YouShallNotPass: The epic battle of Twycross. A plan to trap an entire cluster of Jade Falcon forces in a narrow pass and bury them under explosion-induced rockslides goes awry. With a [[AnAxeToGrind Hatchetman]] mech with a busted laser and an empty autocannon, he goads the cluster into the pass, dances a bit with the cluster's commander (the predecessor in the subsequently stigmatized bloodname seat of the aforementioned Taman Malthus)... and then [[SelfDestructMechanism blows his mech up]], escaping in a full-head ejection system with Lear, and detonating the explosives and burying the Jade Falcon cluster, leaving few survivors.

* TakeAThirdOption: Amaris was dead but war again loomed as each head of the Great Houses declared themselves the new First Lord of the Star League. Kerensky could either support one of them or declare himself First Lord. He choose exile instead.

-->"Know that I have taken the remnant of the Star League Defense Force which has remained true to its purpose beyond the boundaries of the Inner Sphere, beyond the Periphery. I have done this, neither out of disappointment with those whom we leave behind, nor out of spite or disdain, as some will say. No, we have left the Inner Sphere because we love it too much to see it destroyed. In the wake of the Usurper's coup, and the long, bitter fighting that came with it, I fear that my forces would do incalculable, possibly irreparable, harm to our society. We are sworn to ward the Star League and its subjects, not destroy it. "Thus, we have left the only homes we have ever known to place the destructive capability of this armada beyond the reach of those who would use it, not for defense, but for conquest. Perhaps, with the might of our 'Mechs and ships out of reach, the leaders who now grapple with one another will relinquish their dreams of subjugating their neighbors and learn to live in peace with them. "Perhaps, one day, should mankind step back from the brink of the abyss, we, our children, or our children's children will return, to once more serve and protect and guide the Star League in mankind's quest for the stars."
