Default ADB's Next Heresy Novel: Nightfall or Master of Mankind?

Title is exactly what it says.

https://twitter.com/adembskibowden/s...56125573115904

ADB says he needs to decide between Nightfall or The Master of Mankind for this next Horus Heresy novel. I'm hoping for Nightfall for obvious reasons, MORE SEVATAR!

Who agrees or disagrees with me?

Nightfall, no question about it.

However, I feel this need to be said. It says something about the Horus Heresy series when the Emperor himself is less popular than a first company captain that wasn't even in the lore until a few years ago...

I dunno really. Much as I like Sevetar, I'm just dying to see more Custodes action.

As long as he gets to do both in the fullness of time I'm not really bothered. I think Master of Mankind is more needed at this point tho. He's been portrayed as too much of a dick up till now. He needs some love.

Or it's a statement about ADB's writing skills that he's created a character that some people want to see more than the Emperor... glass half full or half empty.

That said I want Nightfall solely for Sevatar. But admittedly The Master of Mankind covers events that I want to see more than the events in Nightfall. But it's characters, will it have good characters? Undoubtedly, so we'll have to wait and see who they are.

And yes perhaps this is the book that will finally show that the Emperor isn't a complete moron because so far... damn.

I actually am a little NL saturated, there are plenty of legions out there who need some love, i understand there is one Legion ADB does rather not write about, but here still are plenty left
besides I understood that in the master of mankind there will be an important BA

I'm hoping for more of Amon in Master of Mankind, I really like him as a potential main character for the novel.

God would that be a cool point of view for the novel. But as we know, its never just one point of view lol, I wonder who else could be used... as long as its not another fucking remembrancer... Nothing I dont care about more then the opinions of a lowly human stuck in a confrontation of the gods and demigods... I get the whole "readers being able to connect with humans easier then with the mentality of Space Marines" but fuck if I just don't give a shit. I read these books to get away from my human existence lol, not delve the mind of a man who weeps and pisses his pants everytime a space marine walks by.

I really hope its a custodes that we follow, would love to actually "be in" on the War of the Webway, and not just being relegated to sitting behind the Door once again listening to the sounds of whats happening, due to the human were following being to weak willed to fight chaos.

I think at this point the Emperor needs a bit more attention than Sevatar or the NL

Ultimately of course it's up to ADB/BL, but as someone mentioned, I feel a bit NL-saturated
