Your Great-great Grandfather had been elevated to a noble after the unification war to make this glorious country.The officer lazily nod and wrote your name."Yes, yes. Welcome to our great army. You will make the Emperor and our country proud." He drop the uniform bag in front of you, uncaring of your status. "Next!""Such insolence!", you whispers. "But no matter! Time will come when the Von Brant will rise again"Calming yourself , you quickly snatched your uniform bag and went in line with these peasants. Making a ruckus here will not only shamed you but also denied the glory that Von Brant needed.You Choose:>To be an infantry. To capture the enemy for the glory of the empire.">The Navy.

Should i continue next time or just keep moving?)You look outside the window, where yellow fields of grains and green trees moves. The clear blue sky with warm sun above while women and children waves at you as they harvest their grains. The sight of young siblings playing on the field and majestic mountain stood still on the background.Nostalgia slowly creep inside you, infesting you with your mother bitter smile, your father's proud pat and your sister's worried hug when the letter of recruitment came at your door. Stiff bow of your butler Elbert as you left with your clothes sack and your family's saber.you must do this...for the Empire...For your Noble lineage...F-for your precious family...rubbing your misty eyes, you grip yourself and tried to endure the early homesickness."Hey!", Suddenly an energetic voice sprung beside you.A messy blond haired boy grin at you."Not crying are ya?

I am Garbriel Fisher, Son of Bert Fisher and of course, a fisherman!"No wonder he's strong but his humor is terrible. He reminded you of your neighbor's dog. Finally he let go of your slightly red hand."So, How's being a noble treated you? Hand seems weak though. Can i touch your sabre?""Being a noble is fine and no you cant touch it. It's a family heirloom""Bummer. You nobles are really uptight huh? So...Which ships you are going? Heard they finally have the Anti-beast battleship built. Can you believe it?

Yer joking are ya?" He caught your smirk and before you know it, both you and Gabriel break into laughter with him playfully punching your shoulder."I got you didt I?", almost everyone is watching but it's pretty hard to stifle your laugh"N-hehe-nah ya didnt", he isnt ashamed of being watched."Sure Gabriel. Let's stick together!". He take a bit to recover before he let out a hand and you shook it again."Friends called me Gab or Gabby""Von Brant", you replied"Aww, cant i call you Freddy or Ferd?""Only if you buy me dinner first"Both of you break into laughter again as the scenery changed and your destination is near.----"ALRIGHT GENTS! Move it! Move it!"Several officers are already coming to welcome the recruits. Not even your mother could scream like them as all of you were formed into a group and quickly led into the barracks.The air is thick with salt and you can almost feel them on your tongue but you cant see the ocean nor the beach, just grass and sands.

Dibs on the top bunk", and quickly launched your bag. Close to hitting someone but it land perfectly on the middle of the top bunk""Damnit Von Brunt! I was gonna...place my bag on the bottom bunk anyways" Smug grin on his face."Shut up G-""ALRIGHT LADIES! HERE'S THE DRILL"Officers quickly entered the bunk and everyone drop what they are doing."We are your instructors. I am Herr Edburd and this is Herr Kord and Komandant Rosch." The scarred instructor point at his colleague, fierce looking guy and bearded guy respectively.""We are going to make you into a great sailor! Starting from now, you are to listen to your instructors and answer 'yes sir!' . Understood?""YES SIR!""Damn right, now lets get walking!""But Herr Edburg, we arent fini-" Glasses quickly went quiet as the instructors marched on him."What was that sailor?""N-no sir...""WHAT DID I JUST SAY?""Lets get walking?" You can see cold sweat on him and hope you didnt get this treatment as three grown and hardened instructors look at him with eyes of rage."I SAID TO ANSWER WITH YES SIR!""y-yes sir""WHAT IS THAT BUZZING NOISE HERR KORD""I DONT KNOW HERR EDBURG!

The air slowly thicken with the smell of the seaFinally you can see a slab of metal... No, that's more than just slab of metals...That's a building! Gloriously crafted in the perfect vision of the Empire. You could see soft white steam coming out from one of it's chimney and the sea behind it."This ,recruits, will be your training ground." Instructor Edburg point."This is where your blood,sweat and tears will be shed in the next 9 weeks. Welcome to 'Blut Harbor' "Few patches of rust on this colossal building and few construction crane working tirelessly. Almost as large as the Emperor's castle itself and it's clanking voice smothered the calm sound of the ocean. Truly the embodiment of the Empire's naval power."But not today! Get back to your barrack and unpacked your things!"Few grumbles but a stare from Herr Edburg quickly shut them up.Then began the march back to the barrack.----"That was a refresh walk and that sweet smell of the sea too!

He answer meekly as his eyes inspect you, up and down. You felt a goosebumps in s few instance.Drowning this feeling, you quickly help him. Inside was just dozen spares of clothing, few glasses and the rest are covered in books.History of the EmpireThe basic of WalkersThe Manual of AeronauticsMechanics of Steam-Engineering."So you like to read huh?", These books are not for your average readers and you recognized some of them."O-oh yes! I wish to be a teacher...before the recruitment..." He whispers on the last sentence.,"A-anyway, i havent introduced myself. An-ehem- Albert Borsh. nice to meet you". He bow."Ferdinand Von Brant, Son of Fredreich Von Brant." You offer a handshake and it took him few seconds before he hastily grab them. Compare to Gabriel, his hand is much more fragile and softer...must be a scholar hands."Are you going to to join the Anti-beast fleet?", You resume unpacking the books"I...dont know.

Another row of book tucked out before you realized Albert staring at you with eyes that could power the lighthouse for years."Y-You mean the Imperial Family Walkers? The Humanoid walker with thick metal plate, canons and razor grip? I YEARNED for that!"Dear Lord! What have you gotten yourself into..."Not only the allies cannot penetrate the thick armor but also the metal claws of fabricated animals. I heard the Skirmish with Russian that the Storm walkersdefeated the largest fabricated Bear:The Ursa major!""Right...and how about the empire walkers?""Are you even an Empire citizen?" He poutRude..."the basic Bi-pedal tanks are the staple of the Great Empire forces, capable of evading the mines and trenches while shooting the enemy due to their incredible height!"He took a breather while you are almost done with the book.(cont with pics)

Those elegant steam technology in it's efficiency and size.

Their long legs prevent any blockades and their firepower could eliminate cities. 13 main engines with claws to salvage and repair themselves! Oh glory to the Empire walkers!"You wave at shirtless Gabriel with his wet towel on his shoulders and he waves back"Cant you see the Glory in Walker technology?

Albert bruised his knees while some just collapse, like the noble there.Blood and few nails flows on the barrack showers.

The most known colossal are the Leviathans. The poor whale produced hydrogen to lift themselves while the riders strap themselves below the whales like a parasite.You take notes of the known underwater beasts:>Dolphin ScoutsRecognized by their blue fins and fitted with waterproof cameras in their eyes, they are able to capture enemy movements and can destroy ships if strapped to a bomb.The best way to deal with them is using bait or mines. Capturing them can gain intel if the operation succeed>Sabotage sharksUsing their rotating sharp teeth, they are able to make hole on the bottom of the ship. Sonars can easily detects these cretins and few underwater harpoons can kill them.>Swordfish SalvosPerfect missiles that can penetrate armor and usually strapped with explosives. They can be caught but they are difficult to shoot down.>KrakenDangerous colossal giant class that could tear down battleships. Tentacles are your primary target if you are on deck and try to avoid where their head is. Evade them at all costs if you are alone, in person or in ship.>Week 8There are few people here in the Advance tactics and of course, the noble is here.Today's lesson is about maneuver strategy used to take down enemy ships and beasts. The Ironclad battleship usually became bait themselves and use their claw to immobilized beasts while the other cruiser circle these beast and shoot them down.Other strategy was for two ships to grab beasts and tear the in half. Although it is dangerous, it is effective.You are stating to understand the anti-beast maneuver while the noble scratch his head.>Week 9"ALRIGHT SAILORS!", Instructor Edberg shouted."It's time for a battle simulation! Two group will manned a training cruiser. One should defend objective while the other captured it"This time, Instructor Rosch continues."Which one of you will be the one to lead the glory and which one of you will be severely punished for failures?

He salute, tone filled with seriousness and vigilance."two noble being a captain? Man, hope they arent measuring their dicks in this contest""Shush, he said he's a Wasser!"The recruits began to mumble before the instructor shut them up.A Von Wasser?! That is a high noble famed with naval expertise and commended by the previous Emperor. What is he doing here?"Good! Now take these files and do what you must. Tomorrow, the training began!", The Instructor then left with both you and Adolf staring at each other then move to meet ."Von Wasser", you smile with a handshake"Von Brant, was it?", he too smile while accepting your handshake.

You find the places in the map that would put your fleet at an advantage and Wesser's at a disadvantage incorporate the information we found new course avoid any spots where we are at a disadvantage lest it is necessary. Didn't say we had to stick with the trade route only get the merchant boat to it's destinations. Can we assign the Albert to the merchant ship? need it to keep up with the cruisers.Also have karl captain another cruiser in our fleet. he can tactics better than us. Hermutz put into communications so he can better coordinate and manage the fleet.
>>1548159Modify, Gabriel for FalkWesser will most likely keep his fleet together better to outshoot them than engage up close.
>>1548186Sorry ta burst yer bubble dude but Notable captains or crews are already recruited by Wesser.The Merchant ship is not in our control. You can move your cruiser freely but you cant control the merchants. If Albert is placed there, you cannot easily use the perk
>>1548190Ill wait for more votes and see if you can convinced the other two to re-vote or get more votes
>>1548191Fuuuccckk, well have karl study the trade routes. ask his opinion as to where wesser will most likely attack. Also take mediocre captains them that will follow orders competently.
>>1548159>>1548195>>1548197Sure, I can support this.
>>1548191Was it an equitable ratio of notables?
>>1548201Yep. It's a balanced build
>>1548163>>1548175Bruh, Think of it from Wesser's point of view. Their objective is the ship, and only the ship. If he splits his ships he'll have much less of a chance of winning an engagement with us if his ships attacks separately. Gabriel can best used for silence assaults up close but that will mean we will have to deal with the rest of wesser's fleet by having falk we can still hit substantially hard and do so in our terms since we can disengage more easily if we engage wesser from afar.
>>1548202Can we take mediocre captains?
>>1548210You automatically get mediocre captain and crews to fill up the empty positions but limited manpowers so that's why the max is 3 cruiser. 3 cruiser, yer crew could be stretched thin
>>1548214Have Karl lead the mediocre crew accompanied with gabriel. I kinda want to go full offense Gabriel and Karl heading for close up assault while your ship provides cover.
>>1548208>>1548219Our goal is to protect the convoy. It's better with our shooter to stay with the defense ship which we know is gonna be shot at. Along with the fact it can last longer.
>>1548223I'm down for a compromise, keep falk in the defensive ship but karl and gabriel are in the third ship.

You like it and felt pride in wearing this. You wore it like a proper captain, formal but approachable."Not bad, captain" Gabriel approached you, his uniform is slacked like his everyday style. Albert on the other hand is too formal, with all the buttons locked up."Heh! Better get ready, Assault Leader. Offense team is already leaving.", you twirl your hat."Oh man! Already a promotion?

>>1551926Theres also another problem.Their location is on the trade route. Depending on the curriculum of this exercise, the merchantship may be forced to go about the entire path so that the attackers have ample chance to plan a proper ambush.Thus just disabling their engines will be insufficient.

You hoped they are fine."Captain, i think that ship is going to ram us!", Karl point at it, "Evade or take the hit?"You have 1 action to decide whether you want melee or keep using cannon>Evade them [Boost speed?]>Brace for impact and keep firing!>Write in
>>1552161Call me crazy but is it possible to maneuver ourselves so that the nose of the ship is pointed at them so we can ram em as well?If no evade them.
>>1552161>put her down.
>>1552165Ill give very difficult DC. You dont have a great driver after all
>>1552165>>15521691 evade1 Brace ?Waiting for tie breaker
>>1552181>>1552161>>Evade them [Boost speed?]We still need to handle the farther ship after this, we can ram it then.
>>1552161>Brace for impact and keep firing!
>>1552181Evade them then
>>1552188>>15521902 evade2 braceStill a tie
>>1552199>>1552196It got swapped to 3:1 now.
>>1552203wait really?hmm...Oh well, evade it is

>>1552216Errgh.That lucky strike
>>1552218>>1552219>Overly dramatically Ship noises and metal grinding
>>1552222>>Overly dramatically Ship noises and metal grindingI wonder how cockblocked the rammers feel now.
>>1552161>>1552215>>1552216>>1552218(dont mind this roll)The enemy ship suddenly burst in action, black smoke coming out for it's chimney and speed suddenly increased. At any case you are going to be rammed."Easy now," You keep a calm head.The enemy became an arrow that can break the ship in half but you have other ideas. As grandfather says, use the enemy's advantage against them."Now! Increase full speed!" your ship began to move as the enemy propel themselves toward you. It might look like they will succeed but your calculation is..must be perfect.The moment of truth as you can see the bow of the ship coming closer and closer."BRAACEEE!" And the SS. Salvation collide with Enemy ship, Metal grinding against metal.(-1)On your ship's tail. The momentum let you keep starboard pointing them while your bow pointed at ship B.The enemy? Not so lucky. They also collide with 'Iron Gate', causing the metal tower to moan and groan.(-10)"I need to reload!", You scream.
Rolled 39 (1d100)>>1552253God damn dice
Rolled 1 (1d100)>>1552253Reloading
>>1552253>>1552266Were we supposed to roll?
>>1552266>>1552268You don't roll to reload anon. That'd be stupid. Read up and see when we had rolls actually asked.
Rolled 30 (1d100)>>1552253>>1552254then you saw something from the deck of the enemy ship...A white flag?[SS.Fortune Destroyed]"It seems they are surrendering", karl put down the binocular,"you actually broke their morale. heh...hahaha...HAHAHAHAHAHA""K-karl?" You approached him but he signal you to stop."I-its fine. I am fine", he take a breather,"We still have enemy to destroy. Good job commander". And sat down on his chair as if nothing happened."Alright then, Gun-""Captain! Morse code from SS.Protector! They are still alive but with heavy crew injuries. No hull damage"[SS. Ram defeated]Thank God."It seems luck is with us after all", Karl smile and you start to shudder," Hmm, It seems...Hold for impact!"And then there was a boom>Order for SS. Protector:-Guard the merchant ship-Flank the enemy-rest for a while>write in>SS. Salvation-Ram this ship! [use booster?]-Get to port side to fire!>Write in
>>1552266Lucky bastard....Thank god i didnt ask for it

>>1552276Guard the damn Merchants.We can't let them take that, or its game over.
>>1552276-Guard the merchant ship-Get to port side to fire!>>1552282There is the guy ahead of us and a guy attacking the merchant ship.
>>1552276>[SS.Fortune Destroyed]>[SS. Ram defeated]>>1552283>>1552284Don't they only have 1/3 ships left?
>>1552282Do you know why they didnt move for a long time?
Gonna take a quick bite. Brb
>>1552293Either it's a trap or their engines broke down earlier?
>>1551892>"Gabriel. Time to shine! Get swimming to the farthest ship and sabotage">>Perk:[Fisherman] used.>>1552293>>1552297Oh, right. Our fisherman disabled their engines earlier. They're probably still fighting on that ship.
>>1552291Just because there's less guns pointing at them doesn't mean that the gun is any less dangerous. It's a fisherman boat, not an anti-beast carrier.
>>1552301>>1552299What about our fisherman that boarded them earlier?
>>1552310Just makes it easier to cover the objective. We can still shoot them, assumingly from that position. Just prioritize the fishing boats safety.
Am back. lesse the votes>>1552282>-Flank the enemy>-Guard the merchant ship 2>-Get to port side to fire! (2)Is this the vote?
>>1552276>>1552282Switching target of the fire to their guns.>>1552342Yeah. Did you already vote? I figured we should flank the enemy since the sabotaged ship is the only one that could damage the convoy, so getting rid of it would be to our benefit.>>1552355So far, yes.
>>1552358Only one vote, but am Mobilefag.>>1552284Isn't me.

Rolled 2 (1d100)>>1552380>>1552389>>1552397>>1552400(dont mind these roll)"Give them rain of HELL!" Adrenaline keep pumping in your system. The sound of shells being unload violently seems like an orchestra to you...and Karl it seems.A hit...a hit...aand a Hit...with one of their artillery destroyed. Beautiful.
>>1552417>Rolled 2 (1d100)RIP enemy ship. What happens if they crit-fail?
>>1552422Guess we're going to find out.
>>1552417(christ, really?)All of the sudden you saw a white flag...s. Countless white flag with Gabriel coming out to the deck and waving at you. He has bruised on his face.You..Won![ss.Lion surrendered]The whole SS.Salvation crew cheers, chanting your name. You felt like the king that just conquered an island. With minimum damage and great strategy, you have defeated Von Wesser."Oy KID!", you heard a shout outside. Peeking though the window, you saw the 'merchant ship' beside yours and instructor Rosch giving you a salute."Let's get back on the dock. We got a debriefing to do"----Loud cheers from the defense team as they put their feet on steady land. Albert quickly pounced you, hugging you from behind while Gabriel head-locked you with his arm. Soon, the whole crew of SS. Salvation and SS. protector salute at you and chant your name...until the instructor slam the ground."ALRIGHT! HERE. Defense team, congratulation! Those are bold move you just did and none of the cargo are damage! FULL MARK!" Instructor roach approached you," Captain Ferdinand Von Brant, you did amazing performance. I am proud of you, son" And salute you then went back to address the crowd."As reward, defense team can get my alcohols in my shelf...enjoy". Now the crew suddenly picked you up and went to the Instructor's cabinLast thing you heard was" OFFENSE TEAM! PREPARE FOR HELL!"
>>1552449These are expensive rum...and he have tons of them on the shelf. There are other expensive assortment of alcohol there too. Spiced, vodka, Rare whiskey...and so on.Before the party started, Hertmut tap his glass with a spoon."Alright people. Before we start, any word captain?">Write in a speech>I told you ill treat you guys for a drink. NOW DRIINK!>nah. LETS GET DRUNK>Write in
>>1552457>I told you the winning side, Now time to pay up my dues. DRINK!
>>1552457>>1552467We told them they'd be the winning side thanks to having such a fine set of officers and crew members. Now we're going to keep to our word and have them celebrate.This is what happens when you bring everyone together.
>>1552457>>1552467>>1552472>>1552480"We told them they'd be the winning side thanks to having such a fine set of officers and crew members. Now we're going to keep to our word and have them celebrate. This is what happens when you bring everyone together." you went silent for effect,"I told you we are the winning side, Now time to pay up my dues. DRINK!""CHEERS!" they raised their glasses and drink....BURNS! Your throat burns! You saw some cough,other almost spit their drink."AUUUGHHH!" Falk screams in agony, clutching his neck before falling down on the table....sleeping.This shit is very potent...You can almost feel your head buzzing. Only Gabriel and Erw- nope his face is already red..A bit more time and familiarity, the party went on full swing.>Talk to your Hartmut and Karl>Talk to Gabriel and Albert>Listen to Erwin's drunk story>Write in
>>1552491>Talk to your Hartmut and Karl

>>1552491>Talk to Gabriel and Albert
Rolled 3 (1d3)>>1552497 1>>1552498 2>>1552500 3 Three way tie. Time for dice
>>1552491>>Talk to your Hartmut and Karl>>1552498>>1552537If we can't go see the losing team, we should check on what happened with the other ship during the battle.
>>1552498You can check the enemy team tho. They will be at the barrackAnyways, you wish to switch vote?
>>1552547>>1552548Oh, alright. Yeah, checking in with the officers to see if there were any faults, any issues that should be addressed later sounds good. Maybe a debriefing later.>>1551144>>1551211>>1551370>>1551713On another note, turns out we only needed 1/3 turns in aware mode because of how far we were from enemy lines.
>>1552558Everybody's getting drunk. You really think now's the best time for a debrief?
>>1552573What, you don't think getting shitfaced is the best time to ask questions?>>1552558>Maybe a debriefing later.I did say later, that was to notify them and ask for their thoughts on the matter.
>>1552587I suppose I'm using the term debrief a bit too liberally. What I meant to say is: Are you sure this is the best time to ask our officers to think critically? It makes more sense to ask them when they're more clear-headed.
>>1552491>>1552497>>1552498>>1552500>>1552547Time to know what happened on SS. Protector. Scanning the room for your First and Second Mate, you found them sitting on the table and sipping the drink."Hey there" You approached them," enjoying the drinks?""Ah, our most prestigious captain," Hartmut smirk," Come, have a seat. I know you are dying to know what happened"You oblige and sat beside Hartmut as he began."First when we detect SS.Ram heading toward us from the blindspot of the Barren Rock. A good hiding place indeed. He was coming to ram us bit we still have distance so I ordered Falk to shoot but he missed the first time."He take a sip, letting the drink quench some thirst"After we received your order, we detached from the merchant and focused on SS.Ram. Suffice to say we hit our mark and enough to slow him down but not enough to evade his claw. We are ready to be boarded but strangely, they were skeleton crew and their champion was Gunter Smitz. That man can rage as he pitted against most of our crew, even dueling mano to mano with Erwin."He let out a bitter smirk."We got him down but Erwin went down also....But your action was much more bolder i would say. 1v2? I would not even thought of such foolishness""But luck was on my side", you grin"Yeah", Falk replied," You see, they were using SS. Ram as a bait and then they will flank us. If you look at the crew from SS.Ram. SS Lion and SS Fortune; It was 1:3:2 respectively. We are lucky they got spooked first. Truly the Wesser are terrifying but not today! Fortune favors the bold!" He toast,and you and Hartmut follow.That's pretty much the debrief you can get.>See the losing team>Talk to Gabriel and Albert>Listen to Erwin's drunk story>Write in
>>1552603>Talk to Gabriel and Albert
>>1552603>>Talk to Gabriel and AlbertGabriel must've been doing some interesting stuff when he was boarding.
>>1552603>>1552608>>1552623>>1552655After a few shots, you leave your officers in peace and try to find your friends...Which is...oh no!you can see Gabriel forcing Albert to finish a bottle, with the latter trying to get out of his grip.Captain to the rescue!"Whoa! Gabby, calm down! Put the bottle down" He look at you like a deer caught the scent of danger and slowly put the bottle of Rum down," that's it...good. Now what did happen here?""Welp. Al here's a bit of party pooper, sayin we are too young to drink", Gabriel point at Albert, who's face is beginning to be red"Yesh, we werz jus 17 yers. Too yung", Albert tried to stand, his leg went wobbly."Aaaah Details. Lemme tell you how i got these injuries", Gabriel point at his black eye," Thanks to your ambush, we got in easy! Sneak to the engine and BAM! Punch the shit out of it. Damage was done and then we got swamped by angry crew...Good times""Yeah, you did gave us time to finished SS Fortune,"You raised your glass," Cheers"He clinked your glass with his bottle,"Cheers". Another warmth on your belly"Cheeerz", Then Albert fall on you, grabbing your shirt and fall asleep. You stare accusingly at Gabriel and he innocently shrug and skedaddle away>Get Albert to his bunk>Floor is good, More party to be had>Write in
>>1552663>Get Albert to his bunkFuck's sake, Al.
>>1552663>carry the lightweight to his bunk
This is the enemy's battleplan btw. A quick blitzkrieg
>>1552688Why did they split their forces?
>>1552663>>1552669>>1552687You sigh and carry his lightweight ass in bridal style. Not your fist choice as back carry or fireman carry have a chance for him to puke on your uniform and you dont want that.He mumbles along the way as well as touching/slapping your face. Glasses all fogged up and face red as a tomato. Probably due to those alcohol...you gotta get back on Gabby later...As you planned your revenge, you entered the barrack to find the offensive team laying down like a dead man on their bunk, without even changing their uniform. You can hear someone agonizing somewhere but you dont care. You unceremoniously dump Albert on his bunk, take his shoes out and tuck him in...just because you are in a good mood."Mmmm...Von bsent?" He mumbled"hm? get to sleep Albert." His respond was a mumbles so you take your face close to hear what he says...When suddenly his face went forward and kissing you right in the lips. Taste of vodka and shame linger in your mouth for few seconds before he went down again.You are shocked of what happened here, snapping you out of the buzzing haze in your head."Wuv u", he mumbled before snoring. hopefully he forgot about those."Von...Brant?" a voice behind you. you quickly turned. lo and behold..."Von...Wesser?" But something's wrong with him...he's covering all his body with towel.What a strange night to be drunk...>Tutorial level ended.Thanks for playing y'all. Ill be here for questions and will take the weekend resting before resuming the quest>>1552713The solo cruise was a bait
>>1552722>Tfw no option to haul off and punch him in the face for such GAYNESSS His such a faggot, But adorable.
>>1552722Any critics or feedback are welcomed>>1552732Yer too shocked to be punchin people
>>1552738I guess being a noble makes ya a weak limp dick or some shit then. I enjoyed the run, Still trying to firgure out how a training test like this means we can fight animals.
>>1552742This is to show how the game will be and to show the recruits how battles are/ looking for potential candidates . Of course the real ones are very brutal.With this winning you can get to any fleet you want.
>>1552748Really? Any fleet? What are in the running?
>>1552738Thanks for running, it was a lot of fun! As someone who owns all three of the Leviathan books, it's cool to see a quest being run in that setting. I do have a couple pieces of advice though. First, I would recommend you get a twitter so that you can keep players notified of when you plan to post new threads and whatnot. Also, it'd be nice do get some more detailed descriptions of the characters and world around us, not really a huge deal, but a little added fluff can go a long way. Other than that, great stuff. I'm excited for the next thread.
>>1552754As you know there are:-Silent hunters (Submarines)-Anti-beast (fleet specialized in defeating beasts)-transport fleet (frontline land and sea ships)-Iron Fleet ( the main body of the Fatherland's fleet)-Royal Fleet (The best of the best and newest tech implemented)
>>1552767yeah. Ill see about making pastebins and twitter on the second thread. Ill post them on around Sunday or monday. Thanks for playing dude. Really want the Manuals of Aeronautics. they have great designs and details of the worlds
>>1552768Oh boy the Royal Fleet, and Anti-beast fleet sound great.
>>1552777You will get the training session after you joined the fleet
>>1552772Thanks for running.We got really lucky with some of those rolls.
