> September 3rd, 2013TIME FOR SCHOOL!Couple of things.1. I’ve lived near D.C. my entire life. I just realized NOW that D.C. doesn’t have the capacity to take on cargo ships, let alone a fucking Academy ship.2. I’m being intentionally vague about Pool’s sexuality.3. I’m also being intentionally vague about everyone else’s sexuality.SITUATION: http://pastebin.com/mN2QcAtrMECHANICS: http://pastebin.com/Se82xDLeCREW ROSTER: http://pastebin.com/CZx3ZgzcTHE SHOP: http://pastebin.com/GqjqiWrvPrevious thread: You are Gertrude Pool, Sophomore Class President and new commander of Lafayette Girls Academy’s revived Tankery Team.AND IT’S FUCKING TIME FOR SCHOOL!6:30 AM waking up in the morning, gotta get fresh, gotta get downstairs gotta get the cereal put it in a bowl and a theasd fuck this Friday shit.Anyway, you wake up early on at 6:30. Classes officially start at 8:00 but the first day of school involves an assembly at 7:30 sharp where the class presidents address the incoming freshmen. Regardless of your personal feelings towards the freshmen, you do have to participate in that.Of course, after school, there’s also the Club Fair where hopefully Nancy has everything set up and ready.But, past that, there are also a couple of things to remember.1. You should probably buy a tank.> SUBQUEST UNLOCKED> Girls go shopping, right?> Buy a Tank (0/1)2. You need to hire an instructor. Lisa said she’d get in contact with the Army, probably the recruiters over at the RSS.> SUBQUEST UNLOCKED> Tutorials usually come first.> Hire an Instructor3. You need to work out the details of your first match with Robert A. Heinlein Military Academy. Might be worth calling “Ace” Levy, their Tankery Team Commander.> SUBQUEST UNLOCKED> Operation Torch> Fight the first match with Robert A. Heinlein Military Academy.[1/2]
>>28053677[2/2]Right, enough of that. Time to get ready for school.The uniform of Lafayette Girls Academy was simple. Red skirt, white button down shirt, navy blue blazer, and a red necktie. Naval Academy students had a similar set up, save for a matching navy blue skirt, and a navy blue jacket with the sailor collar, essentially looking very much like that one US Navy recruiting poster.You look yourself in the mirror after a nice cool refreshing shower. You’ve never been one to question your hairstyles, because you generally just wear your shoulder length hair loose and free.Not today.Today, you have to make an impression on freshmen, let them know you mean some business. The only way to do that, is with a hairstyle that says, “I mean some business.” Unfortunately, you only really know two or three hairstyles, and you’re wearing one of them right now.Now for the ultimate choice.WHICH HAIRSTYLE DO YOU GO WITH TODAY?> Ponytail. Sporty, makes as if you don’t have time for anything proper.> Bun. Upper class proper shit that makes you look educated.> Loose, fuck hairstyles.> Other
>>28053683>> Ponytail. Sporty, makes as if you don’t have time for anything proper.We're already "Helpful" should go for "Friendly" as well.
Alas, I've used the wrong pastes for the Situation and the Crew Roster.SITUATION: http://pastebin.com/vAcw4Q65CREW ROSTER: http://pastebin.com/3Jsyupd3
>>28053683> Bun. Upper class proper shit that makes you look educated.REALFUCKINNEATGlad to see you back! Gotta call the other team after school imo - I doubt they'd appreciate being contacted in class.
>>28053683> Ponytail. Sporty, makes as if you don’t have time for anything proper.The best hairstyle.
Also, hoping we'll see more of the Polish soon.
>>28053747Hoping those Pollacks will give us Danzig back
>>28053677>where the class presidents address the incoming freshmen.Why anything other than>>28053683>> Bun. Upper class proper shit that makes you look educated.Is even an option is a total mystery.We can be casual some other time.
> Ponytail. Sporty, makes as if you don’t have time for anything proper.Meh, you’re feeling sporty. Time for a ponytail.You take one of your unused scrunchies and knot your hair into a ponytail. You check yourself out, and you find that it’s actually not too bad. Simple, easy look.Of course, the alternative was a bun, and you’re not entirely sure how or why you know it.Anyway, you dry yourself off then get yourself into your school uniform. It’s actually the one you used last year, and thankfully you haven’t done too much growing. That means there’s no more worry if a shirt is too small or too big at the clothes stores anymore.Of course that also means you’ve stopped growing. You sigh as you press your hand to your chest. That’s the worst feeling.But hey, you’re dressed, you’ve got a ponytail. You’ve got the look of a Student Government worker, no- a Student Government President.A knock comes at your door. “Hey, President!” It’s Nancy. “Ready to go?”Ready to go?> Yes> No
>>28053783Buns are lame, let's show them how hip and youthful we are by getting pigtails
>>28053683>> Ponytail. Sporty, makes as if you don’t have time for anything proper.
>>28053794> YesAs far as I remember, we ain't sporting body armour, so there's nothing else to don.
>>28053811>As far as I remember, we ain't sporting body armour, so there's nothing else to don.No, we don'tYet
>>28053794>NoWhere's our toast? We can't leave without toast.
>>28053783Wouldn't the bun make us look like a frigid iron bitch? Unless I'm thinking of the buns old people wear.
> YesYou grab your backpack. Thankfully, Ramirez had the state of mind to get school supplies for you. Punctual as always.“Yeah, I’m coming!” you say. You quickly adjust your tie then make for the door. As you open the door, you find your staff, Nancy, Lisa, and Ramirez waiting for you outside. Everyone is pretty much prepared for school.Lisa says, “Ready for school?”You nod. “Of course.” Nancy hands you a ziplock bag full of apple slices. “Oh, thanks, Nancy!”Nancy smiles. “Oh, I knew you’d miss out on breakfast!” she says as you begin stuffing your face. “After all, you do have to give that speech to all the freshmen first thing in the morning!”… oh right.Lisa asks, “Feeling nervous?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>28053798Pigtails are a bit /too/ casual. I'm glad ponytails won.((>>28053823))Yes, totally trying for the "She looks serious but it actually cool" persona with the freshies. And I thought we'd something like the kind of bun Yulia Tymoshenko(sp?) wears. Which is so classy it shits red carpets and chandeliers.>>28053838>> NeutralNo need for false bravado. Not now.
>>28053838>RamirezI have an urge to go to Burgertown.
>>28053838>Boast Nah, we gonna own that stage and impress those little freashies
>>28053838>> BoastI'm nervious that I feel like I'm being fried alive
>>28053851>No need for false bravado. Not now.And not around our allies.
>>28053838Is Freedenhall giving a speech? She's suspended. We should have some sort of contingency plan for if she's there.
>>28053858But alas, it's her job to make sure you don't get close to it.
>>28053851>And I thought we'd something like the kind of bun Yulia Tymoshenko(sp?) wears.We should totally try to act like her.
> Boast“Of course not!” you say. You summon the bravado required to make such a statement true. “They’re just freshmen! They probably won’t be paying attention anyway! Do any of you guys remember when the class presidents talked to us last year?”Everyone says no to some degree. You snap your finger. “Exactly. This speech will be easier than a nun in a gay bar.”“Of course, Boss,” says Lisa. “Anyway, let’s hurry and get to school.”Nancy stops, her smile replaced with shock. “Wait!” All of you turn to look at her. “We forgot Kitten!”You shrug. “She takes online classes, she doesn’t need to go to school today.”Nancy pouts. “But she’s part of our crew! She should be with us at the Club Fair!”“Well, the Club Fair’s after school, Nancy. She can just come by later.”Alas, Nancy still pouts, not having that. “I still say we wake her up and bring her with us.”Hm.> Wake Kitten up and bring her with you.> Leave Kitten. She’ll come by later definitely.
>>28053930> Leave Kitten. She’ll come by later definitely.
>>28053930> Wake Kitten up and bring her with you.SOLIDARITY IS KEY! Kitten will appreciate our efforts.
>>28053930Wake her up so log as it won't make us late She's got to socialize.
>>28053930> Wake Kitten up and bring her with you.Time to abuse Kitten (again).
Lesson learned: Pay attention when the QM gives you a big hint.
>>28053930>Wake Kitten up and bring her with you.Nancy is right, she IS part of the crew.
>>28053930>> Wake Kitten up and bring her with you.Nancy likes Kitteeeeeeen~>suffrage ofcommonThe captcha is onto something.
>>28053968But that's when she's cutest!And it's for a good cause.
> Wake Kitten up and bring her with you.“Fine, Nancy. We might as well.”“Yay!”The four of you head downstairs to Kitten’s dorm. You knock on the door. “Kitten, time for school!”… no response.… you don’t know what you were expecting.You knock on the door again. “Kitten!” The other three staff members talk amongst themselves as you fruitlessly knock on the door. You continue until your cellphone rings.“Kitten”> Answer> Don’t Answer
>>28053997> AnswerFine, we'll give her a chance to explain.
>>28053997>> Don’t AnswerWe'll knock the doors down, again, if we have to!
> Answer“Hey, Kitten!”“Stop knocking on my fucking door you jackass.”“Oh come on, Kitten! It’s time for school!”“… So?”“So? Club Fair’s today, we gotta have our entire crew with us if we want to make an impression!”“But that’s after school. I can just show up later.”“Oh come on, Kitten!”“No.”Well, she seems dead on staying home. Is there any real way to convince her?> Pathos> Ethos> Logos> Leave her.
>>28054061>>28054061what?just grab her and drag her out like always do.
>>28054061>LogosOur puny efforts to appeal to her emotions won't work, we have to argue with cold, hard facts
>>28054061Kick door in. Drag her out screaming and kicking in her pyjamas.
I was going to go have fun with my friends, but then Panzers happened edition.
>>28054061> PathosShe's a good girl. She totally loves everyone in the group (non-lewdly). So, we use it against her mercilessly.
>>28054061Pathos? Logos? Ethos?What the hell man, BREECH AND CLEAR.
>>28054081My colleagues didn't even call me. We should be out playing billiard right now.
>>28054086>breechGod damn it brain, it was supposed to be breach.
>>28054061>> LogosMore specifically, we threaten ((>>28054076))
>>28054086YES! get some AT-4s and go at it!
>>28054097*rationally, of course.>>28054102This isn't Infinite Stratos; Firing in close quarters might actually have detrimental results. Might.
>>28054121i never said they were loaded, just get the used empty tubes. they did this same trick in a recent Strikers 89' thread recently it worked just the same
>>28054147RAMIREZ, GRAB THOSE AT4'S.NANCY, KIDNAP THAT VIP
> Logos“Kitten, you said you wanted to make friends, did you not?”“Yeah, what does that have to do with-““And where do all the impressionable people your age hang out for the most of the day?”“At school.”“Ergo…?”“… I should go to school.” There’s a definite pause as you wait for Kitten to deliberate. Finally, she says, “… fine. I’ll go. Give me a minute.” She hangs up.You look over at your staff. “She’ll be with us in a bit.”Nancy nods, regaining her energy. “Excellent! It’ll be wonderful having the whole crew together!”Lisa nods, a bit more skeptical. “Why does Kitten not go to school anyway? I thought only the destitute and Naval Studies Kids took Online Classes.”“Yeah,” says, now a bit curious herself. “I’ve been wondering why Kitten seems so shy. You know her right?”> Explain> Vague> Change the Subject> Lie
>>28054164>> VagueFriends don't tell friends secrets of their friends if said friends' aren't exactly friends with friends' friends.
>>28054164I want to know. Explain.
>>28054164>Change the subjectFriends don't talk about friends.
>>28054164> Explainno lies, better to be up front about this now and get it out of the way.
>>28054164>Lie"Well, you see,there was this incident involving a bathtub full of glue, a sheet of paper, three hockey sticks and an apple"
>>28054164> Change the SubjectYou'll have to ask her yourself.
>>28054164>VagueLet's not betray her confidence
>>28054164> Tell them that's personal and not for you to share. They should as Kitten herself.How nosy!
>I’ve been wondering why Kitten seems so shyAww, purr KittyMan I love puns
>>28054164>VagueThey can ask Kitten herself if they want the details.
>>28054121>This isn't Infinite Stratos;IS Quest when? I wonder how /tg/ would react to a straight up battle harem quest without any pretensions of being anything else.
>>28054231I've thought about making one. But I always thought /tg/ would flame it to pieces.
>>28054231Maybe if it would be ran in a way similar to Princess Guard Quest.
>>28054231>battle harem>implying Char is not One True Waifu
>>28054231Most people who want to run pure smut suck at leading a quest so it wouldn't be interesting.
>>28054231> Infinite StratosBeen meaning to watch that for some time, is it good?Is it part of some bigger franchise that I would need knowledge off?Sage for off-topic
>>28054231At least harem-haters like me could just ignore it instead of being lured in with false potential like some others.
> Vague“You’ve all gone through Middle School right?” They all nod. “Then that should explain everything.”Nancy nods, understanding. “I see.”The door opens a minute later, with Kitten walking out garbed up in her school uniform and looking positively pissed. “Right, let’s get this over with,” she says.You shrug and lead the group on to school.As you walk, you can see many freshmen on their way to school, packing their bags with all the recommended school supplies and all the recommended textbooks. You can’t help but snicker a bit. Your staff converses amongst themselves, with Kitten purposely trailing behind.Finally, you reach the front entrance to the campus. Unlike most land-based high schools, Academyship schools were designed like college campuses with multiple buildings to allow for the higher student population.And of course, at the front entrance were Hall Monitors checking everyone in.“Oi, you lot, get over here!” says one of them to you. Great, another Irish hall monitor.> Aggressive> Neutral> Submissive
>>28054257You are in it purely for the the appreciations of the maidens that appear within.Or you could be an LN fag and I don't mean Lawful Neutral.
>>28054257>Been meaning to watch that for some time, is it good?It's like any other harem anime - absolutely horrible with few good characters that keep you hooked to it. Houki is shit>Is it part of some bigger franchise that I would need knowledge off?No.Sage for derailment too.
>>28054270> NeutralUpstanding citizens.
>>28054270Neutral. Maybe they don't know us, but we haven't done anything wrong.
>>28054270> NeutralKeep your cool people, who knows, this one might be friendly.
>>28054270>NeutralOh lord what coming at us now?
>>28054270> Neutralwe're on the up and up
>>28054298Until proven otherwise I'm holding to the assertion that the entire Hall Monitor students are all corrupt. I mean bitch tits did end up sending our entire class fund to them to have them under her thumb
>>28054257No to both questions.>>28054270>NeutralWe don't have a beef with THIS Irish hall monitor. Yet.
> NeutralYou walk up to the bespectacled and actually surprisingly short as Kitten Hall Monitor. She does not look amused.“You having a gas?” she ask you.What?“Pardon, you say?”“Oi, I’m asking the fecking questions here you gobshite! Look at yourself!” You all look at each other. Doesn’t seem like anything’s wrong. “It’s all wrong!” The hall monitor walks up to Ramirez and then snaps open a tape measure. She quickly measures the gap between Ramirez’s skirt and her knees. “Three inches above the knee! Regulations state that skirts may only go one inch!”Lisa looks over at Ramirez. “Oh, Ramirez, I see you like to live dangerously!” Ramirez is non-plussed.“Shaddup!” the hall monitor shouts. “I’m in control here! Pull down your skirt!” Ramirez quickly pulls her skirt down to the mandatory one inch. The hall monitor looks over at Lisa, “And as for you! Your tie is all out of alignment! I oughta ticket the lot of you for all this-”“What in the hell is going on over here?” You look over at the newest Irish accent, and see O’Bannon walking over, apparently unamused.> “Who the fuck is this?”> “Oh hi O’Bannon.”> Other
>>28054392>> “Oh hi O’Bannon.”
>>28054392>“Who the fuck is this?”
>>28054392>“Oh hi O’Bannon.”
>>28054392> “Oh hi O’Bannon. Nice chat the other day. Did you catch that dashin-I mean, unkempt miscreant?
> “Oh hi O’Bannon.”“Hey, O’Bannon.”O’Bannon looks at you, apparently surprised to see you. “Ah, was just looking for you.” She places a hand on the little Hall Monitor’s head. “I see you’ve met one of our newest trainees, Little Miss Megan O’Hara.”O’Hara is having a fucking conniption at this. “I’M NOT LITTLE! I’m a Law Enforcement Studies Student and I deserve to be treated as such goddamn it you cunt!”O’Bannon looks down at her, unamused. “Oh, sod off you little cunt. If brains were dynamite you wouldn’t have enough to blow your fecking nose.”“Says the obviously corrupt blackguard who thinks taking greenbacks on the fecking side like some Norner brasser is a good idea you cunt!”O’Bannon looks at you. “See what I have to deal with?” You shrug in response. O’Bannon looks back down at O’Hara. “Now, run along, go patrol the halls or some shite like that you fecking cunt, you’ll be more useful that way.”O’Hara puffs her cheeks and begins walking off. Before she goes however, she says to O’Bannon. “You know, you’re a real fecking cunt! I bet if you ever chopped off those soulless locks of yours, you wouldn’t have to resort to blackmail to shag with a guy!” She begins walking off, then turns around and continues, “Oh! Better yet! Maybe Pinkerton will find her way out of the fecking closet if you two ever stop denying your fecking feelings for each other like little chinky schoolgirls in the yard! CUNT.”THEN, she walks off.O’Bannon looks a bit pissed.> Talk with O’Bannon.> Report to the Auditorium> Other
>>28054515> Talk with O’Bannon."She seems nice!"
>>28054515>> Report to the AuditoriumSo Pinkerton and O'Bannon are lesbians in denial and O'Hara is strict but on the straight...Hmm...
>>28054515Let's just leave. I doubt O'Bannon will be in a good mood after all that.

>>28054515> Report to the Auditorium
> Report to the Auditorium“Welp, we gotta go to the Auditorium then, O’Bannon.”O’Bannon nods. “Right, I was just gonna tell you that you’re needed there. It’s about 7:15.” You nod and motion for your staff to follow you.The Auditorium was built to seat as many as 5,000 people. Thus, it looks less like a high school theatre and more like a grand opera house. You push yourself through all the freshmen piling in and make your way to the stage where a bored looking hall monitor lets you through without incident.Several chairs have been laid out for the staffs, such as Fredendall’s and Betty’s. Speaking of Fredendall, her staff of three has actually arrived, but Fredendall herself is not here.Oh right, she’s suspended. Hehe.Regardless, in Fredendall’s absence, it seems that Betty’s gonna have to speak for both the Senior and Junior classes, that gives you some time to practice a speech. Of course, you could also get to know the other class staffs while you’re here.> Talk to the Senior Staff> Talk to the Junior Staff> Talk to your Staff> Practice a speech. You don’t know what speech, just practice.> Other

I tell you, that girl sees right through you - why, she even caught such tiny issues with our clothing we didn't even know what she was talking about at first! Is she as good at reading people too? Seems like you've got a real talent there.
>>28054657>> Practice a speech. You don’t know what speech, just practice.
> Talk to your Staff“So guys, look at all them freshmen.”Lisa nods. “Wide-eyed, not a clue how anything works.”Nancy asks, “So, President. What kind of speech do you have rolled out for them? Something inspiring?”You shrug. “Eh… I suppose I can just make it up as I go along.” Your staff stares at you in silent disbelief. Then they all nod. “Oh, don’t look at me like, it’s easy to give a speech to like 10 or 20 people you already know. Giving a speech to thousands is an entirely different thing, altogether!”They all say, “It’s an entirely different thing.”… what?Anyway. You’ve got time to do one more thing.> Talk to the Senior Staff> Talk to the Junior Staff> Practice a Speech

> Practice a SpeechYou quickly excuse yourself behind the curtains of the stage, and in the darkness of the backstage, you quickly go over some standard speech thingies that generally make a speech.“Hello, my name is Gertrude Pool, welcome to Lafayette Academy.”Hm, maybe a bit more enthusiastic.“Hi, my name is Gertrude Pool! I’d like to welcome you all to Lafayette Academy!”Eh…“Lafayette Girls Academy is one of the best Academyships sailing the ocean, and it will remain so for years to come!”That hits way too close to home.“So, allow me to say, Welcome, and please enjoy your stay!”Goddamn it, you’re not a hotel curator.The curtains crack open, it’s Nancy. “President, they’re starting.”Oh boy.> “Alright, fine, let’s go.”> “Give me a minute.”> Other

>>28054938>> “Alright, fine, let’s go.”It's go time.
> “Alright, fine, let’s go.”You walk out and sit down in a seat besides your staff on stage right with Nancy being directly next to you. The Juniors and Seniors are to your left. Principal Tennyson has arrived and has taken the podium. The Hall Monitors are about telling the freshmen to quiet down, and soon, the scene is quiet and ready for Tennyson.“Good morning, Freshmen. I’d like to be the first to welcome you all to Lafayette Girls Academy. I know I myself am clearly not a girl,” the freshmen laugh quietly, “but that doesn’t mean I will not try to make your stay here comfortable. You are here because you’ve all gone through the entrance exams, through MEPS, and are considered some of this country’s best and brightest. It is here you will learn how to do things in an educated and concise manner. Forget everything they’ve taught you in Middle School. This is where the learning starts. Forget SOL tests, forget cramming, just forget all of that. Here, you will learn to become a functioning member of society, through experience. I expect no less than the best from every single one of you, and looking at you all, I am assured I will get the best. Thank you.” The freshmen applaud and cheer on Principal Tennyson as he respectfully walks downstage to his chair, and out of the way for Junior Class President, Betty Grable.[1/2]
>>28055139[2/2]“Welcome, my name is Betty Grable, I am the Junior Class President for the Class of 2015. Normally, our Senior President Lilah Fredendall would be speaking, but she’s currently indisposed.”Don’t laugh don’t laugh“Looking at you all, I can see the anticipation and the excitement in your eyes. You all want to get out there, show our Professors what you can bring from where you come from. Whether you are from NOVA, or as far down as Georgia, you all represent some of the United States smartest youth, and here at Lafayette Girls Academy you will become some of the best the United States has to offer, in the field of business or science or wherever you go in the future. I will tell you, what probably all of your teachers up to now have told you: please do your best. Don’t slack off. An Academyship is an institute of learning, not a vacation getaway. You do your very best, and you keep yourself steady and focused, I assure you, you will succeed. Thank you.” Betty bows to the applause of the freshmen. She takes her seat.Your turn.Ah shit.You stand at the podium, clearing your throat. Man, they made that shit look easy.“Hi,” you begin. “My name is Gertrude Pool, Sophomore Class President.”> Pathos> Ethos> Logos
>>28055206>PathosDon't really know how or why we should appeal to logic or morality right nowTODAY THE ENEMY IS AT OUR DOAH
>>28055206>EthosPathos won't work on random freshmen with no connection to us or anyone else; Logos just makes for a boring speech.
> Ethos“Here at Lafayette Girls Academy, we begin to grow. Not grow as in, ‘learn this and that’ or ‘make smart decisions’ and all that mumbo jumbo. We grow as people. Only on an Academyship like Lafayette can you get the practical experience to be a better worker in any career you pick, whether you be a scientist, a CEO, or even something as simple as restaurant owner. You’re not gonna get that anywhere else. And they say that it takes a village to raise a child. Lafayette Girls Academy is the community to raise yourself up high, and become the person you want to be, not the person other people want you to be. So, with that, thank you for listening.” You bow, and the freshmen applaud you. You even hear the shouts of your freshmen crew somewhere in the background.That could’ve gone worse you suppose.You sigh as you take your seat.Tennyson begins to take the stage again.> Listen attentively> Space out
>>28055349>Listen attentivelySure, why not
>>28055349> Listen attentively
>>28055349>Listen attentivelyMight as well.
>>28055349> Space outThis is some boring shit they're spewing, just like every other school assembly.
> Listen attentivelyWelp, might as well listen.“Thank you, to our class presidents. Of course, near the end of the year, one of you might run the election and become the next Sophomore class president. But with that in mind, we must say again, please do your best. You’ve all come very far, but you’re not out of the forest yet, quite the contrary. You make it through the Academyship, it’s an instant ticket into the college of your choice, or a job in your chosen field. With that, welcome to Lafayette Girls Academy, the class presidents and I will do everything in our power to make your stay comfortable. Thank you.”The freshmen applaud, and with that, they are being led out by the Hall Monitors.Man, that was boring.But whatever, you’ve got ten minutes ‘til class starts. What do you want to do?> Talk to one of the other councils (Which one)> Talk to Tennyson> Talk to your staff> Go straight to Class
>>28055475>Talk to one of the other councils (Which one)Junior/Sophomore Fredendall's a Huge Cunt Alliance go
>>28055475This sounds good >>28055491
>>28055491agreetime to brown nose a bit. we need money and tanks.
>>28055491The Junior Council fears Fredendall. They won't do shit against her.>>28055475Talk with the Senior Council. Let's see how far under her thumb they are.
> Talk to the Junior Council“Hey, Betty!”Betty nods at you, and that smile on her face looks incredibly forced. “Oh, hey Gertrude!” She gestures over to her two other council members, Vice President Maxwell and Treasurer/Secretary Jane Russell. “You’ve met Marilyn and Jane right?”You nod. “Yeah, we’re familiar with each other.” You greet Marilyn. “How are things going, Mary?”Marilyn shrugs. “Oh, good. You know I hear you’re reviving the Tankery Program.”You nod. “That’s right.”> RECRUITMENT OPPORTUNITY> Y/N?
>>28055619YThey'll probably say no, but we should at least try.
>>28055619Yes!Never any reason not to.
>>28055629Indeed, verily, etc. And who knows, one of them might have something not wholly unsimilar to a spine.
>>28055619>NIt will never work.
>>28055619>NWhat for? They'd refuse anyway. Fredendall has them by the ovaries.
>>28055688Enough with the negative waves, Moriarity. Think positive thoughts
>>28055619>YMake it so!
> Y“Maybe you’d interested in helping us?”The girls all take a peak at the Senior Council, who are looking at them curiously. They all look back at you say, “Nope.”Why do you even bother.Betty whispers into your ear. “I’ll try to do what I can, but right now, things are a bit complicated, okay?” You nod, cautious. “Now, we have to get to our classes. Seriously, good luck with the Tankery program.”“Yeah, thanks, for what it’s worth,” you say as they walk away. The Senior council take a look at you, skeptical, then walk away as well.Welp, time to get to class. You remember that Kitten isn’t registered for any lectures, so she’s probably gonna have to go with one of your staff or find some place to hang out until school’s over.Who do you send Kitten with?> Yourself> Nancy> Lisa> Ramirez> Other
>>28055800>yourselfFuck that chick trying to steal our pussy.
>>28055800>YourselfAlways. What would we do without her?
>>28055800>> YourselfI'm glad the Junior council has at least the tiniest beginnings of a spine.
>>28055800>YourselfThat's our pussy
>>28055800> YourselfWe gotta make sure she gets eased into it properly. Who better?
> YourselfYou walk over to Kitten, who has fallen asleep completely in her chair.D’aaaawwww but anyway time to wake her up.“Kitten,” you say as you shake her awake. She slowly stirs, yawning. “Time to go to class.”She sleepily says, “but I don’t need to go to class, you fuck.”“Well, too late now. Come on.” You stand her up, and she rubs the sleep out of her eyes. You look over at your staff and say, “I’ll take her with me. We’ll meet up at lunch alright?” Your staff nods.Right then, off to your first class of the day!Goddamn it, your first class of the day is MATH.You quickly explain to the Professor that Kitten will only be here for the day, which he agrees to. Kitten finds a nice seat waaaaaay in the back.As for you, where do you sit?> First Row. Maintain that Presidential reputation and maybe learn something.> Somewhere in the middle. That’s about it.> The back. The cool kids club.
>>28055980>> First Row. Maintain that Presidential reputation and maybe learn something.
>>28055980>Front Row bitchesMath is tonks
>>28055980>First Row. Maintain that Presidential reputation and maybe learn something.This is important stuff we should be learning.
>>28055980> Somewhere in the middle. That’s about it.Close enough to Kitten to monitor, not too close to prevent classmate interaction. Close enough to front to be active, not so close as to be in the teacher's sights constantly. The perfect position.
>>28055980Main character seat! Main character seat!But no, > First Row. Maintain that Presidential reputation and maybe learn something.
>>28055980> Somewhere in the middle. That’s about it.
>>28055980One row from the back, three from the front, near the windowsThe MC seat, duh
> First Row. Maintain that Presidential reputation and maybe learn something.Welp, might as well go for the first row. You look back at Kitten, who’s already fast asleep.Yeah, she’s gonna make lots of new friends.Math goes by relatively uneventfully. The Professor introduced himself, the syllabus was given out, the sleeping kid in the back was explained, and finally some math was taught. You’re not entirely sure what math it was, you’re pretty sure it was something to do with algebra though. You were never good with math, there was a reason you always sat next to Kitten in Middle School, she knew how to do math besides the fact that you two were friends.English goes by relatively the same as well, except this time, pretty much everyone had fallen asleep, and even you began nodding off towards the end. You kinda wish English was the first class of the day, it might be good to have a good nap before all the other classes.Of course, now comes FUKKEN Chemistry. Chemistry has to be exciting, right?Right?You’re shaken awake by Kitten. “What? What happen?”“You fell asleep, chemistry is over.”Damn it.Well, at least it’s time for lunch.> Head straight to the Cafeteria.> Talk with Kitten> Other
>>28056132>talk with kitten:3
>>28056132>> Head straight to the Cafeteria.
>>28056132> Talk with Kitten'You didn't happen to catch any of it, did you? Please teach me, Kitten-sensei!'
>>28056132>Talk with KittenBOOST YOUR RELATIONSHIP EVEN HIGHER
>>28056132>FUKKEN ChemistryOh Gertrude, I know your pain...
>>28056132>Talk with KittenTalk about tanks for a change
>>28056132>Talk with Kitten
>>28056132> Talk with Kitten
>>28056132hey, quick question bossman.On the shopping pastebin the Panther is listed as an Ausf D, but there's an option to take it to an Ausf A. Is there something I'm missing about the A being better than the D or what?
>>28056230The D. Variant Panthers were the first production Panthers.Essentially, it's mostly engine work and other minor details, but that's really important considering the Ausf. D was practically the tank that defeated the Germans at Kursk.
> Talk with Kitten“So, Kitten, make any friends yet?”Kitten shakes her head. “No. The only friends I’ve made are a sexual predator and your staff by proxy.”You nod, that figures. “Well, Kitten, I’m sure you’ll figure something out. Hell, by the end of this year, we’ll turn you into one of the most popular students in this school.”“Please no. I think I’d rather stick to tanks.” You snicker at that. “Anyway,” she says, “it occurred to me that we haven’t actually assigned our crews to our tanks, well beyond us of course. When are you gonna get to that?”You shrug. “I’ll get to it later.”“Ah, the procrastination spirit.”“Oh come on, procrastination’s good for you. In moderation.”You reach the Cafeteria. Lunch period was generally split between the four classes to cut down on congestion, and right now it was the Sophomore period. Thankfully, you’ve arrived before most of the crowd, that of course means the freshest food.Still, might be worth it to find your crew first though.> Find your staff> Get your food> Other
>>28056291oic. Why the hell wouldn't they call the first production variant the A?It's like starting software at version 3.0 and then patching back to 1.1
>>28056335>> Get your food
>>28056335Get food for the staff before there's a long line.
>>28056335food then staff.
>>28056335> Get your foodBestest, freshest food first!
>>28056335Get. Yo. Food.i've never watched anime but i gather character in it like food, possibly because so many artists are overweight and overestimte the appeal of food(?)
>>28056335>Get your foodAfter a bunch of classes and an assembly, I'd be pretty hungry.
>>28056335Also, Comrade Schteel,Not sure if this was mentioned before, but what's the economic breakdown of the ship. You've mentioned tuition before, and that Naval Studies Students are on an all expense paid scholarship (also, online classes being cheaper. But why would you go on an academyship to take online classes?).
>>28056408Generally speaking, those who go on Lafayette are from the upper middle class of people below the Mason-Dixon line down to Georgia at the lowest.Online classes are generally an alternative if you want an actual job aboard the Academyship, like Naval Studies. In cases where you aren't Naval studies, then you still have to pay regular tuition and you're at least expected (but not required) to take a job.Huh, now that I say that, I'm getting ideas.
>>28056335> Get your food
>>28056335>Get your food>>28056230You know, you just reminded me to take a look myself.Sweet fucking Jesus, where are we going to get the money for these upgrades? The friggin Sherman upgrades alone would bankrupt us.Should go for the Panther and KV-1S first. Do people think we should go for the 152 or 85?
>>28056467We need everything comp-spec first. Then we can upgrade.
>>28056467Smaller calibers are faster (both in RPM and velocity), but I feel they're more consistent as well. I'd rather the 85 or a late war 100 over the 122 and 152.
> Get your foodHAHA TIME FOR LUNCHYou and Kitten make it into the relatively short line, and soon, you’re walking out with plastic trays with chicken sandwiches, apples, and milk. It ain’t Nancy’s cooking but it’ll do.You stand on your tiptoes and scan the now forming crowds for your staff. If there was any period of time in school where chaos reigned, it was lunch.Fortunately, you find your crew already seated at a table having their meals. That was easy.You and Kitten walk over and find yourself being greeted by them. You seat yourself between Kitten and Nancy, with Lisa and Ramirez across from you.“Hey, Boss,” says Lisa, “how’d your classes go?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>28056491We should still upgrade the Panther first in that case, it's contending with the KV for our best tank.
>>28056531>NeutralIt was class.
>>28056531> Boast"I didn't fall asleep in one of them!"
>>28056531>politeI'm hoping polite in this case is "downplay how fucking shit everything was incl kitty beign asleep"
>>28056531>Polite>I made a nap.
>>28056531>NeutralWe should've just slept in the back like Kitten.
>>28056531>> Neutral>>28056535Not gonna argue that point one bit. We should find our superheavy and sell that bitch for money. Does our KV have the 122?
> Neutral“Oh, things went okay. I’m sure Kitten had fun, right?” Kitten shakes her head. You say, “okay, yeah, no. But seriously, chemistry is really fucking boring, I thought we were going to be mixing chemicals and shit and things would explode!”Lisa says, “That’s only in the movies. Real chemistry involves looking at atoms, finding out how they’re composed, and memorizing the periodic table.”“That’s boring. I want to make things blow up!”Ramirez says, “Well we are taking Tankery, I’m sure something will come up.”Lisa snaps her finger. “That’s right! I’ve been meaning to tell you. I got into contact with the recruiters over at the RSS, they told me we can hire an instructor from the Army. It will cost us though.”“How much?” you ask. You brace yourself, this is gonna be expensive.“1,000 Dollars. So how about Boss? We gonna hire an instructor, or do you have someone else in mind?”> Hire Instructor (- 1,000 Dollars)> Other> Leave it
>>28056680>> Hire Instructor (- 1,000 Dollars)
>>28056680Mrrghgh>What do you think Kitten? We gonna need one?
>>28056680Well we'll have to, no way around it
>>28056680>hire instructorWhat's the point having cash for good tanks if we're shit at tanks?
>>28056680>Hire InstructorThere's no other way unless Kitten wants to be our instructor.
>>28056662I'd prefer to at least find out how the superheavy runs at least.Tankery has far different tactical requirements, all you need to do is kill tanks, cost, effectiveness against infantry and airpower aren't factors here at all.
>>28056680> Hire Instructor (- 1,000 Dollars)Worth it.
>>28056748I will give you that. But if it's a prototype and requires too much money to run, I think I'd vote for selling it to get the rest of our tanks up to spec.
>>28056786I'd prefer to keep it (provided the costs aren't too exorbitant), I'd like at least one gimmick to screw with other teams.Plus Kitten would murder us if we sold it.
>>28056748Well I faintly remember some newbie team destroying a Maus with two light tans and a medium oneThat aside, ammo, fuel, and maintenance for a super heavy could destroy our budget, we have hardly enough as it isLooks like we'll have to whore Kitty out, no way around it
>>28056835>spoilerThat's a job for Ramirez, not Kitty, anon.
>>28056835Was that actually even supposed to be possible? From my understanding GuP wasn't the most historically faithful of shows.
>>28056826>>28056835Seeing as how we're still not even capable of even comp-specing all of our tanks, I'm not sure we could keep a prototype super heavy running. I would REALLY like to keep it, but until we know which one it is, we can't make a good decision. >>28056862Only if Ramirez does heavy labor or something. She'd be a ball crusher.
> Hire Instructor (- 1,000 Dollars)“Alright, we can lose a 1,000 on that. Hopefully they send us someone competent.”Lisa nods. “Yeah, I’m hoping that too, you know when I was over there they would not stop trying to recruit me into the Army. Then the Navy recruiters showed up, and you know, it’s all a mess when I try to tell them I’m not interested.”You snicker. “I bet you’d do alright in the Army, Lisa. Maybe you’ll get yourself a real cushy desk job or something.”“Eh, if I wanted to do hard manual labor constantly just to do something boring, I’d be Amish not Jewish.”Of course.Nancy says, “Anyway, President, I scheduled our first Club meeting for Thursday, that’s the soonest they can send the instructor right?” Lisa nods. Nancy continues, “Unless you have any objections?”“Nah, Thursday’s fine.”Nancy claps her hands together, “Excellent!”Anyway TIME FOR LUNCHYou dig in, because the Club Fair’s only a couple of hours away and who knows how long that might last.Soon, the alarm signaling lunch is over sounds. Time to head back to class. You say goodbye to your staff and keep Kitten along with you.Now it’s time for PE!… oshit, kitten.> Let Kitten skip PE> yeah nah, come with us Kitten
>>28056886Well could always keep it in storage later, it isn't like we need to bring it into the team the second we find it.
>>28056899>> yeah nah, come with us KittenThe full experience
>>28056899>let Kitten skip PEDon't be a dick.
>>28056899> yeah nah, come with us KittenWe don't want Kitten getting pudgy now do we?

>>28056899>yeah nah, come with us KittenWe can't let Kitten become some lardwhale.
>>28056899> yeah nah, come with us KittenOnly for today.
>>28056899> yeah nah, come with us KittenShe can just sit out if it gets too tiring.
>>28056899> Let Kitten skip PELet's have the back of our bestest friend.
> yeah nah, come with us KittenOh man fuck EVERYTHING about the Pacer.Kitten collapsed of exhaustion around lap 30 or so, not bad, but she’s literally too tired to get up. Being the good friend you are you’ve carried Kitten on your back for the past 30 or so laps, getting up to 65 before deciding to retire.You set Kitten down on the bleachers. Thankfully, you made a purchase of a new set of gym clothes, a white shirt and navy blue shorts, for your friend Kitten, who’s now splayed out all over the bleachers sweating more bullets than a Machine Gun.“How you feeling Kitten?” you ask.She musters up enough strength to flip you off.Well, at least you know she’s not gonna die.After that, you change back into your regular uniforms upon the end of PE. It’s time to go through History! Maybe you’ll actually learn something about tanks!“Nope. Battle of Tours.”Damn it.Well what about your other electives? Perhaps your theatre class is much bet-Who are you kidding, it’s Theatre class.Your final class for the day is another elective, French 2. Your French is still rusty, but at least it’s better than Kitten who knows nothing about it at all.With the final alarm, school’s over.> Talk to Kitten> Head to the Club Fair> Other

>>28057088>Head to the Club Fair>Walk and talk with KittenYou decide on carrying Kitten the rest of the way to the Club Fair, might as well, considering you made her sit through Theatre class. Somehow it’s much worse than PE but you’re not entirely sure why.“You enjoy School, Kitten?”“No, fuck you.”“Is this because I made you go through PE?”“Yes.”You sigh. “Kitten, a growing woman needs to exercise, you know that.”“I don’t need to exercise. I drink milk.”“… that don’t make any sense but I suppose that’ll do for an explanation.”Soon, you’re out into the Sports field, where Lafayette’s many clubs have set up booths to advertise for members. Some are giving out free pastries and food, others have videos set up to demonstrate what their club does.But your club has tanks. Three of them to be precise.The Sherman, the SOMUA S35, and the KV-1S have been enlisted as props to advertise in your large booth, where your staff are currently asking for donations or for people to join as they pass on by. Your crews, the Freshmen, the Aviators, and the Poles, are also about asking for donations. You decide to set Kitten down in the shade of the Sherman.Where do you go from here?> Help your staff advertise.> Take a walk around the Fair, see what other clubs there are.> Talk to a crew (Specify)> Other

>>28057247>> Help your staff advertise.
>>28057247This explains her tiny stature.And why would we ever want to change that?
>>28057247Have Kitten give highlights info sheets of the tanks for the crews to advertise with...ask them to read those and decide which crew gets which tank right now.
> Help your staff advertise.Nancy hands you a loudspeaker. Time to advertise.You stand up on top of the Sherman and turn the loudspeaker on. “Lafayette’s Tankery Program is returning! Want to know how to drive a tank? Want to participate in a cultured martial art experience? Want to become a real woman? Join Tankery! If you don’t have the time to do it, you can at least donate so that we’ll be able to purchase quality tanks and lead our team to victory! Tankery World Tournament’s coming up, so please show us your support!”http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lyl4UwXxTWcYou stand next to Lisa as she presents the informational video to a group of prospective students. They appear interested, but if your keen eye for interested people ever told you anything, these don’t look like a dedicated crew.You quietly whisper to Lisa, “How come it’s in Japanese?”Lisa whispers back, “I couldn’t find one in English.”Well, that’s the way the cookie crumbles you suppose.A sophomore in the crowd raises her hand. “Do the tanks actually work?”You nod. “Of course they do! We wouldn’t be using them if they didn’t.”“Can you show us?”… uh.Lisa, taking the initiative, nods violently. “Of course we can show you! We can even fire off a shell for you if you’d like!” She looks over at you, “Right Boss?”After a second of hesitation, you nod as violently as she did. “Yeah yeah!”Which tank do you demonstrate?> M4 Sherman> SOMUA S35> KV-1S
>>28057427>KV-1SOur most awesome tank.

>>28057507what no we are trying to get them all comp spec
>>28057533The Sherman and Somua are already confirmed comp spec. KV-1S was slated to be repaired but it's not clear if it already has been or not.
>>28057546It has been. We got it fixed up.
>>28057533Look at our situation sheet, the Sherman, KV-1S and the Souma are all comp spec.
>>28057474>Dont do the dumbshit thing and shoot anywhere near the fair and get our tank seized again.Up there with 'punching the stasi' for dumbshit ideas which will be sugested by at least three peopel
>>28057569>>28057546I don't know why but I was thinking he was talking about all are tanks
> KV-1SYou tell Lisa to get into KV-1S and drive it to the far end of the Sportsfield where there aren’t as many innocent bystanders to run over. The group of interested students are led by you to a safe distance. The KV-1S raises its gun to the air.“Lisa, you know how to fire that thing?” you say over the cellphone.“Yeah, Mr. Mishka gave us manuals on the tanks. Should be easy. Ready to fire when you are.”You yell over the loudspeakers. “Cover your ears!” The students all plug their ears. “Alright, ready to fire on your go!”“Firing in three… two… one…”BOOMThe students, and you, all jump in surprise. As the initial shock wears off, the students all cheer and applause. The hatch on the KV-1S opens up and Lisa waves, to which you wave back happily. You look over at the students and, through the loudspeaker, ask them, “So, you girls ready to join the Tankery Team!?”The girls all look at each, indecisive.Damn it.“Are you at least going to donate!?”The girls all nod and say the affirmatives. Well, that’s something at least.> Continue advertising> Take a walk around, see the other clubs> Talk to a crew (Specify which)> Other

We also need people to join up if we want to win the Tournament! What say you!? Come on!”Students are pouring money into the donation box, such that a new one had to be built on the spot. Lisa continues showing the Japanese informational video, along with other videos of Tanks doing tank things like drift, shoot, and run over cars.Nancy meanwhile is speaking to a group of three interested looking sophomores.“… and the tanks are fairly easy to drive, but we will have an instructor come by and teach us more about the advanced stuff.”Hm, looks like potential.You jump down and walk over to Nancy. “Hey, Nancy. Who are these?”The leader of the sophomores, a lovely looking brunette, introduces herself. “Samantha Whitworth. Me and my friends here are from the Lafayette’s Rifle Team, we’re actually looking into your Tankery Club here.”> RECRUITMENT OPPORTUNITY> Y/N?

One of them, a blonde, says, “I’m pretty interested. It’d be a nice change of pace from the M1 Garand, that’s for sure.”The other, another brunette says, “Eh.

If you can’t join, at least drop a dollar or two to support us in this year’s upcoming World Tournament! We need you!” you say over the bullhorn. Goddamn your throat was getting hoarse. You quickly drink some water.You only really have about an hour before the Club Fair ends, but so far the donations aren’t letting up. That’s gotta be at least 10,000 Dollars in those boxes you think.Now that you think about it, high schools girls handling that kind of money is a little ridiculous, but then you remember you’re on a ship the size of a small island.Whatever.You continue shouting for donations like a good little herald.

We got reports that you fired a tank shell without authorization on school grounds! That’s against the rules!”Lisa points out, “But since we’re a sports team, we have free reign over the sports field, we can actually do tha-“She quickly looks over at Lisa and shouts, “Did I say something to you, Miss Hillbilly?!” She looks back at you, narrowly missing Lisa giving her the finger. “Now as for you, we have to give you a ticket of 500 dollars!”You sigh. “Oh come on, O’Hara. You’re just a trainee! You don’t have the authority to write tickets!”“I-“ O’Hara pauses, in thought, “Okay, yearra, you’re right, I don’t. But O’Bannon and Pinkerton do.”You look over at O’Bannon and Pinkerton, who look as indifferent as possible. “Unfortunately,” O’Bannon says, “our little cunt is right. We do have to ticket you.”Over your dead body.> “Distraction: Freshmen”> “Distraction: O’Bannon”> Other> Pay the Fee

>>28058227Ah, I'm afraid I must admit to being uncertain as to what event you're talking about. What is your source for this alleged firing of a tank?
>>28058227>“Distraction: Freshmen”I think I'm going to call O'Hara "Ramrod" at this rate. She somehow manages to be even more of a cunt than O'Bannon and Pinkerton, and they're actually being paid to be bitchy.
>>28058277Pffft, O'Hara is way better. She's not paid off, for one.

>>28058287She pisses me off more despite not being paid off, and that's fucking amazing. At least the other two manage to be somewhat professional in the business of fucking us over.
>>28058257You forget to realize that these "Hall Monitors" are Gestapo proxies which in AMERICA we remove. Don't give me BS about the ship not being AMERICA, it's our soil.
>>28058227Point out that Nacy has read the rulebook and is right, as a sportsteam we do have the right to what we want here. Do they really want to push things here and have it blow up in their faces. If they want to try to blackmail and steal from us at least do it when we are clearly in the wrong. Also point out that the tank we were driving in the other day can't go faster than 25 so we know they are full of shit.I really hope to god we can get these girls and the senior president vilified when it inevitably comes out that the school will be closed if we don't win the tournament. Nothing will destroy them faster than the whole school knowing they stood in the way of saving it.
>>28058227> “Distraction: Freshmen”
>>28058338>Nothing will destroy them faster than the whole school knowing they stood in the way of saving it.They could have a "accident" too.
>>28058327Mate, I'm Australian. We dispose of our gestapo, but we do it far more quietly. it'd be something like getting the stasi somewhere private and then our entire club kicking the shit out of them with a 'who is ever going to believe you?' calling card.
> “Distraction: Freshmen”“Uh, Cathy, girls, get over here!”Cathy and her crew respond to your call. “What’s up?”“These Hall Monitors say that because we fired a blank shell on a sportsfield that we have free reign over, we should get ticketed. Is that fair?”O’Hara says, “I fail to see how this is relevant to you getting ticketed.”“Now hold on, O’Hara, I’m getting there.” You look back at Cathy. “Now, do you think that’s unfair?”Cathy nods, a bit frustrated. “It is unfair. We own this sportsfield, we can do what we want with it. We can drive our tanks here, we can exercise here, hell we can hold a hoedown here if we wanted to…” Cathy scratches her chin.“Now look here you eejits,” O’Hara interrupts. “We can be on our way and out if you’d just pay us our 500 if you-” O’Hara looks over, “Is that a fecking fiddle?”http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5dCSdfZFTHEYou’re not entirely sure what happened next, but it somehow involved Ashleigh pulling out fiddle and playing O’Bannon and O’Hara out of the area.Irish people, never able to resist a good flatfooting to a good fiddle tune.That just left Pinkerton, who’s Scottish.“So… you gonna ticket us?” you ask.Pinkerton shrugs. “Eh, Lisa’s right. You do have free reign, and I honestly don’t feel like going through the process of writing you a ticket.” She walks off. “See ya.”Well, that resolved itself in a somewhat unsatisfying but conclusive way.> Continue advertising> Take a walk around, see the other clubs.> Talk with a crew (Specify)> Other

>>28058493>Continue advertisingMuh monies.
> Continue advertisingYou thank the freshmen for their unorthodox and somewhat racist ways of warding away Irish people.The donations start becoming a little more sparse as more and more students leave the club fair. Despite that, you keep on heralding the Tankery Program to your dying breath.Literally, your fucking throat is dying. You hand the bullhorn over to Ramirez.“Join the Tankery Program. If you can’t join, donate! We’ll be participating in the World Tournament coming up, and we need your support!”You rest on top of the Sherman, Kitten climbs up next to you.“Saw what happened. That could’ve gone bad.”You shrug. “Well, be glad it ended like it did.”“KITTEN!”The color drains from Kitten’s face. “Oh shit.” You look over at the source of the shout. Is it Anna Eleanor and the Sewing Club?Oh, yeah, it is.Anna runs up to the Sherman, positively delighted. “Kitten! Gertrude! Good to see you!”You greet them, “Hey, Anna, Mamie, Bess. What’s going on?”“Oh it’s wonderful! We’re getting all kinds of sales for our outfits! People are finally aware that Lafayette does indeed have a Sewing Club!”Mamie says, “We made about 10,000 Dollars in sales alone.”Eleanor nods. “Yep, we wanted to share half of that with you, in thanks!”> + 5,000 DollarsYou nod. “Thanks, Anna! I don’t know what to say!”Anna climbs up on top of the tank next to Kitten. “Oh, just tell me how the Club Fair’s been for you guys! That’s enough!”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>28058696> BoastWe EARNED that cash, and outsmarted the hall-monitors.Also, prime Kitten teasing material acquired.
>>28058696>BoastThis has been amazing for our profits, and we almost have enough to upgrade the Panther to comp spec.Speaking of the Panther, I think we should give it to the plane girls, they have the most experience with engines, which puts them in the best position to deal with any troubles that pop up.
>>28058696>BoastMuch wealth was attained, BRAG ABOUT IT
>>28058696>Polite"We think we made about 10,000 but we're not sure until we count it. It's nice, but we need 50. Thanks for your support, girls""We also got a new crew: The Rifle Club. They like to shoot things so they'll fit right in"
>>28058748I disagree, I think rifle team will be better for Panther.
>>28058696>BoastWe may or may not have enough money to upgrade the Panther now, hell yes.>>28058748Sure, why not?
>>28058696Truly, such fortune couldn't have happened to a more lewd club.Deserving. A more deserving club.
>>28058775The KV-1S has a good gun as well, and reliability is going to be much more of a critical issue than whatever accuracy (that we don't even know translates to tanks) they can offer. We have training for a reason.
>>28058696> PoliteStill haven't counted the earnings yet. If we boast about it, it'd be embarrassing if it turns out to be meagre compared to the Sewing Club's earnings.
>>28058816Comp-spec means there shouldn't be any reliability issues though.
>>28058847No, comp spec means the reliability issues aren't as prevalent as they were in vintage.
>>28058863And when paired with the Ausf A mods it'll be just as reliable as any other tank.Let's just make every team do a few trial runs in every tank and we'll grade on aptitude.
> Boast“Oh, we did a lot! Made a lot of money, outsmarted the cops, and even recruited the Rifle Team! It’s been a productive day!”Anna nods, “Awesome!” She looks over at Kitten. “She looks exhausted.”“Pacer.”“Ah, understandable.”Kitten says, “I take online classes anyway, it’s not like I go to school regularly.”Anna gasps. “What!? Then what do you do all day!?”Kitten shrugs. “Play video games, watch movies, porn, that kind of stuff.”Anna nods, looking positively shocked. “I can’t imagine being stuck at home doing the same thing over and over again.”“… Well it’s not the same thing, I mostly-““Nothing for it then,” Anna starts. “I’ll visit you during my lunch period.”Kitten’s look of indifference turns into one of fear. “Oh god no, I-I mean, you- what about- you can’t be serious.” She looks over at you. “She can’t be serious right?”> Let Anna visit> Don’t let Anna visit> Other
>>28058902You said you wanted friends...
>>28058902>OtherThat really is none of our business.However, let's suggest Kitten talks it out properl instead of letting Anna run over her/ignoring it and leaving her door locked.
>>28058902>Let Anna visit>"Well, you could enroll in a few lectures and socialize there instead..."
>>28058902She just wants to watch porn with you Kitten, that's what friends are for.
>>28058902> OtherConditional terms. Only under Gertrude's supervision.So she can prevent Kitten from escaping and shenanigans that happen are within her sight.
>>28058884Even with Ausf A mods, there's no way it's going to be even remotely as reliable as something like a Sherman. Crappy steel and overengineering ensured that.
>>28058902> Let Anna visitYou'll get use to it and maybe even appreciate it, how's the new bra going? No more backpains eh?
>>28058902>Other"Not my call."
>>28058902> Let Anna visitShe seems nice. If you talk with her properly, I'm sure you can resolve any differences and get along swimmingly.
>>28058902>Let Anna visitShe'd be a pretty good friend to keep Kitten company.
>>28058956I think we'll be fine for a single match. If we can run a prototype superheavy, we can run a Panther.
>>28059020Yeah, and I'd like the-Oh wait, the Superheavy would be a great tank to hand to them.That said, still think the Panther's is in better hands with the plane club than the rifles.
> Let Anna visit“You said you wanted friends, right Kitten?”Anna gasps, “Oh god that’s so cute!” She hugs Kitten, mashing her cheek into Kitten’s. Kitten looks unamused. “Don’t worry, I’ll bring Mamie and Bess so it won’t just be us! We can do all kinds of things together like sewing or jogging or even sketching!”Kitten sighs. “Yeah, fine. Okay. Just don’t get my dorm dirty.”Lisa calls for you, “Hey, Boss! Come down here!”You hop down from the Sherman and walk over to Lisa. She’s surrounded on all sides by filled up donation boxes, using one of them as an improvised desk for her notes and her many calculators. That’s your treasurer for you.“Okay, Boss, so I’ve tallied up all the donations. Everything, plus the 5,000 from the Sewing Club…” she hits a few more buttons on a calculator. “Mhm… we’re definitely in the black.”You cross your arms, peeking over her shoulder. “How much?”“Well, in total, all the donations minus the Sewing Club donation…30,000 dollars.”> CLUB FAIR TOTAL> 35,000 DOLLARS… you’re speechless.“You okay?”You nod. “Yep.”> Boast> Neutral> Polite

>>28059074Time to buy us a fully functional Panther. And Stuart.
>>28059156The Bergepanzer can be converted, I just keep forgetting to add it to the roster.

> Boast“SWEET MOTHER OF GOD, 35,000 DOLLARS!” You glomp a very surprised Lisa. “Oh thank god! That’s so much! We have money now!”“Okay, yeah, great!” Lisa says. “Can you let go of me now?”Nancy walks in, “Are we having a group hug!?” She quickly runs over and takes both of you in a hug. “Ramirez! Come over and hug us!” Ramirez does so.You call over the Sewing Club, “We made 35,000! Come hug us!” Kitten and the Sewing Club all enthusiastically join in.“I’m rapidly losing the ability to breathe!” says Lisa.“VICTORY!” shouts Janek as she and the Poles join in.“Whoo! Get some!” The freshmen all cheer as they join in the hug.The Aviators also come in their own. “We have no idea what’s going on but fuck it let’s join in too!”Awesome!What do you do after the Club Fair?> Head to your place.

Before you leave your staff to secure the funding, you talk to Lisa.“Have Mr. Mishka upgrade the Panther to Comp. Spec. I know that’s pretty much 2/3rds of our money gone, but I’m sure it’ll be worth it.”Lisa nods. “Don’t worry, I’ll get it done.”With that, you decide to take Kitten home, and what better way to take your friend home than on your back as she very slowly dozes off.“Trudy?” says Kitten quietly.“Yeah, Kitten?”“Why’d you say Anna could come by my place?”“Because you need friends?”Kitten sighs. “I suppose.”“Hey, I’m sure you two will get along nicely.”“A pair of shut-ins who haven’t interacted normally with other people for ages?”“Well, that’s the optimistic theory.”The both of you snicker. As you walk down the street, you can just feel Kitten’s heart beating, her soft breathing, yep she’s almost fallen asleep.“Hey, want me to sing you a song?” says you.After a minute, Kitten says “Sure.”You are my sunshine, my only sunshine,You make me happy, when skies are grey,You’ll never know dear, how much I love you,Please don’t take my sunshine away…> END DAY
>>28059389Sure, low hanging fruit and all that.
>>28059407HnnnnnnghAnyway, this was certainly a productive day, though we've still got a fair amount of dosh to collect. A lot off our mind, though.
>>28059407That's where we're ending it for tonight folks. I'll be back tomorrow at the same time at 3 PM EST.https://twitter.com/AdBa19Follow the twitter, I'll see you next time.
>>28059407They aren't even dykes, they're 70 year old married couple. It's kind of sad, yet sweet.Shut up and kiss her already
>>28059407Aw man, now I wish the 'not my call' vote won, kind of.I bet she'd let them visit anyway
>>28059407Thanks dude. Oh and all of us need to remember to upgrade the Churchill to comp-spec tomorrow, 35k-22k=13k which is what it costs to comp-spec the Church.
>>28059436Thanks for running!But at our current pace of one day/session and not skipping much, will we really go through a ton of threads before queen bitch comes off suspension?
>>28059407This is getting 2cute4me.
>>28059489Is the Churchill even worth it?I'm tempted to just get the Ausf A upgrades to be honest.
>>28059516Not until we can see the upgrade path for it.
>>28059516At this point, we need working tanks more than we need better tanks. We can worry about upgrades once we can field at least 5 working tanks.
>>28059535How is that at all related?
>>28059535None of which are listed in the shop, we're talking about a crappy MK.1 here.
>>28059553>>28059559The point is we can upgrade to those. We still need tanks period before we can upgrade. Walk before running fella's.
>>28059553>>28059559Herp, im a derpThe guy runs an INTERNET STORE
>>28059436How did you discover the formula for distilling concentrated cute from characters, then using heaps of it as the key ingredient to build Kitten?
>>28059579The point is that we're not even sure that we can upgrade to those.Hence the question of the Churchill even being worth it.
>>28059599I'm sure they're available, it's just a money issue seeing as how worlds is coming up. We still need more money.
>>28059436Looking forward to starting tank battles! A good build-up makes the climax all better, after all.
>>28059599But he posted a link to wikipedia! That automatically means it's all available and priced and ready to be purchased!For fuck's sakes.
>>28059599Are you that dumbshit from last time that gave up before he even tried? Goddamn, how hard is it to ask things? You speak english too, dont you? Fuck.
>>28059612Considering the retardedly expensive nature of some of the other upgrades here, I don't think it's a money issue.
>>28059644I don't even know what the hell you're talking about.
>>28059407I feel very conflicted about the end, and my yuri warnings are going off but it also has a sibling vibe to it first.
