After the assassination of Duke Ferdinand, The tension between Central Empire and Allied Republic intensify, with the Emperor searching for the killer. The Empire Chancellor ordered a conscript law to trained and prepared for war.You are Ferdinand von Brandt, a clanker lesser noble who joined the navy academy in order to alleviate your family's noble status. After 8 Weeks of intense training and courses, the instructors decided that the last week of training would be used to create a war simulation. You took the role of the defense captain against the famous naval specialist noble called Von Wesser.With careful planning,hiring and brainstorming, your crew were able to formulate plans and your decision-making managed to ambush the hunter. Great luck and bold action made you achieved victory with rewards of hard booze and pride. But this took a strange turn as your engineer friend went too drunk and you carried him to his bunk. There he accidentally(?) kissed you and your rival captain saw what happened.Now the dead filled bunk became colder than winter graveyard.-----You 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 alcohol 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.You stared at him and he stared at you, wet towels still glued to his body. Silence and awkwardness filled the room.Did...he saw what just happened?>Wait for him to talk>"Did...you saw...that?">"nice weather ?">Write inBackgroundhttps://pastebin.com/KVu6TRVhProfilehttps://pastebin.com/ByLMBxmtCrew/Social linkshttps://pastebin.com/KUQTk0sh

>>1566834>>1567038>>1567047Cold sweat fall from your forehead as you just stare at him, unable to say a single world. He just look at you, then tried to look anywhere beside you his eyes met you again. Albert snore quietly beside you."So...", He accidentally say."Hm?""Are you two...?", his voice is cautious"Two what?", you play dumb then he make a circle with one hand and insert an index finger into it...repeatedly...Von Wesser actually blushed "What is that? what do you mean?" Denial mode activated. You are a victim here and the actual suspect is drooling on his bunk. He just stared at you...one eyebrow slowly ascend then descend."So...",he cough silently,"congratulations?"You let out a massive sigh. Thank god he can read the atmosphere."Thanks...".

We have to scrub barnicles and rusts off the ships, the 'iron gates', and that fisherman boat. Pretty fun actually""Wait...the "Iron gates? That is a really tall towers", and large too."Yep", now he went to his bunk for some clothes. His was a bit far and almost isolated in the corner so you follow him." You should see it. Some of my crew fainter or puke because of the height when we clean the roof of the tower". He laugh."Well thank the Fatherland we won..." you wipe your forehead and he look at you with a narrow eyes"You're still following? Oh well. Could you turned around for a bit?" He says and you did."Thanks. Anyways, that was some good tactics there. Where did you learned it?"You could hear some rustlings from behind>Your grandpa>Your crew>Turn around>write in

I wont turn around because...you know, I wont rob you of whatever dignity you had left". The rustling stops and you felt a sharp pinch on your back,"Ow!""Why dont you gloat more and see where that lead us?", Annoyed tone and the rustling resumes. You can feel a smug forming on your lips."You done?", How long does it takes to wore a clothes?"What's with me having to turn around anyway?""Almost," A small pause," A noble always have to look prepared and charismatic....Done!"You turned and...He stood there, with fully buttoned officer dress and pants."Why are you using formal clothing now? It's night time!", you are flabbergasted. Surely not all high noble use formal clothing as a sleep wear..."Hush you! It's a...von Wasser Tradition. Tomorrow is our formal graduation and I want to be ready for it"Oh Right! better get some sleep or you will feel the hangover later."And uh...Von Brandt", He stammered a bit, which is rare,"Er...Nevermind.

>>1569074>>1569266>>1569570>>1569354Sorry. Got banned. Curse kept piling up"What was that you want to say?" head still a bit buzzed from liquors and you dont feel like a patient priest"Um..", he fidget a bit and you sighed No, you dont need a second Albert"Be a man and out with it",Your volume went a bit high and some sleeping recruits twitched a bitAnother moment of staring contest, Adolf took a deep breath."Join me in Von Wasser's ball after we graduate", You can see weight lifted from his shoulders"Wha?", A ball?"Yes. my dear parents would always throw a party for their only child. A boring noble party but a party nonetheless And I am inviting you personally"This take you back a bit. A high noble party is prestigious and have a lot of etiquette but it is also a way to increase ranks by connections. A bit suspicious."Why?" the question escapes your lips"Because you have defeated me in this battle", he lower his head."And as such-""Is this because of your noble pride isnt it?" Yeah, this is going to be another noble piss match."N-no..?", Yep, it is"Conditions then, I would like to bring friends.""Hartmut and Karl are already willing to attend. Their parents are a friend of mine"He slowly inflate with pride."No, i mean this guy" you pointed to comfortably sleeping Albert,"And Gabriel""The infiltration squad guy?""yep""hmm....", that's a long pause," ok. But only if you are there"Go to the Von Wasser's party?>Yes, alone>Yes, Bring friends>Nah, be with family>write in

>>1569584>Yes, Bring friends
>>1569584Yes, bring friends.
>>1569584>Yes, Bring friendsLet's embarrass ourselves in a high noble party. PARTY HARD!
>>1569584>>1569641>>1569657>>1569719>>1569727Life aint fun without friends making things more chaotic."Sure", Fatigue is starting to spread across your body. Adolf's face light up a bit."Ill let Albert and Gabriel knows". Then it dimmed until he shrug."Alright Ferdinand von Brandt. I shall send the invitation as soon as possible and wait for your arrival"You nod and quickly went to bed. Alcohol is the best sleeping pill.---"ALRIGHT YOU MAGGOTS! YOU SHOULD BE PROUD!"Trumpets are blaring and the Empire's national anthem fills the calm air. The graduation ceremony with instructors giving out medals and some important officers shaking the recruit's hands. Everyone is sitting on wooden bench in their sailor uniforms, facing at a metal stage with wooden podium.The best part of this was your crew went into heavy hangovers, excluding you,Hertmut, and Karl. Dark eyes, quickly fixed hair, and sluggish movement. Albert and Gabriel didnt annoy you. Truly a peaceful ceremony.After getting everyone in line, Instructor Rosch clear his throat."To those who survived this training, I congratulate you. To serve this great empire is a privilege and a sacrifice so that our family and children can continue to live in peace. The sea hold many uncharted territory but do not be afraid, we have the technology to conquer it. They are your land, your helper, your board to play war-games with. The enemy already polluted the sea with their heretical beasts so we must by the Grace of God, we must vanquish them and return nature to what they should. MAY GOD HAVE MERCY FOR THEM AS WE ARE NOT! FOR THE EMPEROR AND THE FATHERLAND!"He salute and everyone follow. Pride on their inflated chest and strength to sacrifice their body for others."And now, for the graduation ceremony. Herr Edburd, if you may""Of course Komandant Rosch. Those whose name i called, please approach the podium"He began to call names one by one, giving them medal and shaking their hands. First it was Adolf Von Wasser,then Albert,Erwin, Falk and then Gabriel?Why is your name not called? Did you failed?Friends and crew began to look at you after they got their medals, some worried while others confused. As the last names being called, Instructor Rosch clear his throat again."I would like to call Ferdinand von Brandt onto the stage", His tone lost the authoritarian commander and was replaced by an old man. You quickly stand and approach him."Now, you all know about the simulation battle. It does not only taught us how to execute our plans, but also teamwork,boldness,precision and sacrifice. One ship hold many souls and how much are you willing to sacrifice them is up to the captain. This captain not only took the risk but also able to increase his chances for it's reward."He slowly reminded you of Grandfather."Ferdinand von Brandt, approach"So you did."It is my honor to present you the medal of Shining Sea. May you guide other like a lighthouse in the night fog".
>>1569819A silver medal was pinned on your uniform by an old withered hands. The design was a light house on the rock with light blaring from it."I am proud of you,son" He whispers softly. Not even a rough edge on his voice like he used to."Thank you sir!" you smiled proudly."Now then, you want to have a speech?",He ask softly.>Yes (write in the speech)>No,thank you sir
>>1569833>Yes (write in the speech)"Gentlemen, I am honored to receive this award. However, this honor is not mine alone. Without a good crew, even the best captain is powerless. So I would like to thank my crew for a job well done. Here's to them!"
>>1569833>Yes (write in the speech)Forgive me for I can´t write for shit.So backing this: >>1569855
>>1569833>Yes (write in the speech)Fellows, Friends, and Comrades all. It is my honor to accept this medal, not only for me, but for my entire crew. But this day is not only for we few. It is for all of us gathered here today. Up until today were but cadets. Cadets we are no more. From now on we shall serve with honor in our Emperor's Navy, to make the seas safe for all our people. I have confidence that we shall all do so with distinction and pride in our craft. Here's to you, men! Make our Emperor proud!
>>1569855>>1569876>>1569890Ill try to mix some oh them. Writing.
>>1569901Just to be clear, we're Austrian, right?
>>1569909Ill just say Empire so i will have a lot of freedom with the scenarios but yes, we are similar to Austrian's
>>1569833>>1569855>>1569876>>1569890"Yes sir". Your answer caused him to smile and he nod, letting you take the podium. Here, you could see the eyes of your friends,recruits,VIPs"Fellows, Friends, and Comrades all. It is my honor to accept this medal.However, this honor is not mine alone. Without a good crew, even the best captain is powerless. So I would like to thank my crew for a job well done. Here's to them!"Your crew clapped at you and Gabriel whistles,despite their hangover."But this day is not only for we few. It is for all of us gathered here today. Up until today were but cadets. Cadets we are no more. From now on we shall serve with honor in our Emperor's Navy, to make the seas safe for all our people.

The power to help and control the thousand lives and large metal ships.As you walk down to your ships, hands of your classmates began to pat your back. Some thank you for the booze while others congratulate you. Gabriel grin and grab you into a chock-hold while Albert sneakily hug you. It's their own way of congratulation, you guess...but you are a bit uncomfortable with Albert's hug due to last night."Now you are all no longer recruits. You are sailors! Please, enjoy the food at the mess hall before you leave. Good luck, Sailors", Instructor Edburd concluded.Everyone went to the mess hall in an orderly fashion. What awaits was delicious traditional food and soft bread, which is truly a blessing. The hungry sailors greedily snatch their shares. You still have time before the bus arrive.Who do you want to talk to?>Gabriel and Albert>Karl And Hartmut>Adolf Von Wasser>Instructors>Write in
>>1570090It's cool bro

>>1570123>>1570140>>1570146>>1570189>>1570213This might be the last time you talk to the instructors.After scanning the room, you find them near the buffet table with relaxed postures and a bit of a smile. Instructor Edburd noticed you coming."Ah! look it here. it's the man of the hour", you are surprised to hear his jolly laugh."What can we do for you, our finest captain?""T-thank you sir", You are a bit taken back by this behavior"At ease Sailor. We dont really bit allies",He took a sip. Instructor Rosch and Kord nod."you can use or name or just call me Lt. Ed""That was a good battle, Von Brandt. Shame you didnt take any of my classes" he pat your shoulder."Shame indeed.", Instructor Kord joined."hey, but at least he took your anti-beast class," Lt Ed retort and Kord's respond was a smile."So...what fleet are you from?" You asked"Ah....I am from the Iron fleet. Been service for even before the unification war.", captain Rosch scratch his beard." Lt Edmund is from the transport fleet while Ensign Kord is from Anti beast fleet. You have questions about our fleets?">Ask about the Iron fleet>Ask about the Anti beast>Ask about the transport fleet>Ask about the review of the simulation battle>Write inAlright.

>>1570260Changing my vote to this actually, covers more bases
>Tfw No love for transport fleet>>1570263Acktually, the Transport fleet is assault fleet while iron fleet is mostly water fleet
>>1570288Fuck add Transport then. I want the juicy first hand war accounts. Never read the books before so, want the info.
>>1570252>>1570288>Ask about the transport fleet
>>1570252>>1570288What about the Royal fleet?
>>1570252>Ask about the Anti beast

Basically all the fleet stories?Hmm... Writing
>>1570252>>1570259>>1570260>>1570263>>1570304>>1570367"How bout all of them? First hand war accounts and info are always fascinating. Grandfather always tell stories about the unification war.""Oh? I see that your inquisitive trait separate you from others, young captain", Commander Rosch stroke his beard," What army was your grandfather part of?""He told me it was...Mechanized cavalry...I think?", He always talk about the early steam motorized bicycle after all."Ah...Anyway, The Iron fleet. I was but a young boy when i joined them. It was small but compromised of many specialist...and now, they are the backbone of the Empire's navy." He led the group to an open table and resume as he sat on the wooden chair," The Iron Fleet is more of a Jack of all trade. We have ships for transport, infiltration or Anti-air but we are never overly-specialized. The Fleet Admiral usually gave us daily tasks and missions that are not too critical but sometimes we were given order to launch an offensive. You should have seen it." he closed his eyes, mind heading toward the pasts."The air was thick of black smoke and blood as we attack the northern island. They might have large cannons and heavily defended beach but we are the hammer of the Empire. Thousands of ships sunk, along with ten thousands of souls but we never let them gave an inch. Small boats from the Transport fleet helped us gained land inch by inch while we perform a blockade bombardment. Sometimes i can hear the screams of the enemy in my sleep...but the melody of 10 pound of shell launching from the ship made my sleep easier".The old commander went silent for a minute...."Those are good days...WHere was I...Oh yes! It is easier to get yourself promoted in there and you can learn new skills there. Herr Kord, why not tell the boy about the Anti-beast fleet while I... get some more food""Yes komandant,", Commander Rosch nod and left the table, leaving you with Ensign Kord and Lt. Ed."So... The Anti-Beast fleet is,of course, used for beast related mission or we will be attached to a convoy. We had developed stronger claw engines and special hulls from it's skin. Sometimes we could use the beast against their owner", He tap his chin."If you wish for a story then i have something for you.""I remembered 2 years ago when my ship was escorting a research ship...It was foggy and the moon is at it's new phase. We are on the edge of the border when we suddenly saw a signal light on our border. They seems to know our ship Morse code and it says to meet up with them. Before i knew it, large teeth cut our battleship in half as it's face ascend from the water." His hands started to shake," It's eyes was the abyss and the light was a trap to lure us. Managed to hold it's mouth long enough for the research boat to escape before we bailed out...I still have the scar for that." It was a half moon hole in his arm and as long as his index finger."It was fun but we never caught that bastard."
>>1570494Oh god Angler fish?
>>1570520Giant angler fish god help us all
>>1570494"Ah! before Herr Edburd began, the Anti-beast have the largest casualty rate but also high success rate", He grin"Now,now Herr Kord. You are scaring the boy", Lt Laugh." Now boy, let me tell you all about the transport fleet."Your spine tingles as he let a large grin."The Transport fleet's job is to secure area and critical points while these fleets are able to carry large amount of supply and manpower. We ARE the supply lines. We ARE the tanks. We are able to fight on land and on sea with long lobster legs. We could even be a battering ram! The Infantry and Those birdman respect us! You will kill solders with your skills boy!"He refreshed his parch throat with his canteen."You will be strong. You will be both infantry and Sailors. You are the lifelines of wars! Let me tell you about how I got promoted." Ensign Kord just shake his head at his companion's theatrics," I was at the battle of Ridger when our allies in need of reinforcements. My ship took the call and 500 infantry board our ship...they are good lads.Anyways, the enemy create a blockade but my captain dont care about them. Instead of shooting them at the distance, we RAMMED them while shooting at them at short distance. The captain laugh, I laugh, those 500 soldiers laugh as the enemy sank. My Lt, bless his soul, got shot bet he brought with him 2 enemy ships. 500 fresh soldiers reinforced the the army while we covered them. This is what army should be Boy!""hah! Now you are scaring the boy, Herr Edburd", Ensign Kord smile," Run along sailor before he began other stories"You nod and gave your thanks to your instructor.

>>1570679Hmm...Not really. The problem is that One side is noble and the other are commoners.There are still a bit of social divide
>>1570690What if we push them together into a circle with us in the middle?
>>1570695Hmm... SUre but yer gonna have to roll it.High risk, high reward roll

"You guys enjoying the meal?""Yesh", Gabriel says between bites of bread and meat"Iss shoo guud", Albert grab the baked fish and stuffed it into his mouth....You need better friends"Get a fork and a table you damn savages"They shrugThe bait:A nice chicken breast with veggies and bean will be good and enough to fill your plate."Take your plates and follow me", They answered with grumbles buts till follow you with piles of food and constant eating...while waking. It does create an advantage for you to exploit as they never even look where you are leading them.The Catch:Approaching Hartmut and Karl's table, you politely gesture to sit on their table and they nod. The hungry duo just sat opposite to them as you sit beside Karl.It took the two group a while before they met eye to eye and the ice began to accumulate. You can feel the gap between commoners and nobles.Smiling at your handiwork, it's time for Von Wasser to join.

Is because they don't speak the same language. For instance, take the simple phrase "secure the building".The Army will post guards around the place.The Navy will turn out the lights and lock the doors.The Marines will kill everybody inside and set up a headquartersThe Air Force will take out a 5 year lease with an option to buy."´aam help´ng
>>1571873>>1571897Through the pitch-black night, the captain sees a light dead ahead on a collision course with his ship. He sends a signal: "Change your course ten degrees east." The light signals back: "Change yours, ten degres west." Angry, the captain sends: "I'm a Navy captain! Change your course, sir!" "I'm a seaman, second class," comes the reply. "Change your course, sir." Now the captain is furious. "I'm a battleship! I'm not changing course!" There's one last reply. "I'm a lighthouse. Your call."Google is good.

>>1571873>>1571897>>1571906By the time a Marine pulled into a little town, every hotel room was taken. "You've got to have a room somewhere," he pleaded. "Or just a bed, I don't care where." "Well, I do have a double room with one occupant, a Navy guy," admitted the manager, "and he might be glad to split the cost. But to tell you the truth, he snores so loudly that people in adjoining rooms have complained in the past. I'm not sure it'd be worth it to you." "No problem," the tired Marine assured him. The next morning the Marine came down to breakfast bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. "How'd you sleep?" Asked the manager. "Never better." The manager was impressed. No problem with the other guy snoring, then?" "Nope, I shut him up in no time." Said the Marine. "How'd you manage that?" asked the manager. "He was already in bed, snoring away, when I came in the room," the Marine explained. "I went over, gave him a kiss on the cheek, said, 'Goodnight, beautiful,' and he sat up all night watching me."

>>1571832>>1571848>>1571850>>1571897Time for some Von Brandt charm."Friends and Friends, I bring you here today to talk about futures.", Now you have their attention."Let me tell you a story.Through the pitch-black night, the captain sees a light dead ahead on a collision course with his ship. He sends a signal: "Change your course ten degrees east." The light signals back: "Change yours, ten degres west." Angry, the captain sends: "I'm a Navy captain! Change your course, sir!"

Your call.""Herk!", Karl pit his drink"Hmmph!", Hartmut tried to hold his by covering his mouth with his hands"Pfft-*cough*...Wateerrrr", Albert almost chocked but Karl saves the day by offering his drink, which Albert gladly drain."Wha-?",Only Gabriel didnt get the joke so you whisper it to him"A fabricated dolphin unknowingly went into an ambush. "Something's fishy", it says"."Ha-*cough* *cough*", you gave him your drink. Ice was broken and you have some revenge on Gabriel, sweet satisfactory.but time for business."I heard Von Wasser's throwing a party."You chew some carrots."Yes. My parents forced me to attend but thankfully Karl's there to join me.", Hartmut wipe his mouth"It's quiet bothersome as i preferred reading over a chat but what are friends for",Hartmut pat Karl's back, pretty touched with the friendship."That's sucks", Gabriel went for his last chicken leg,"I am happy to be a simple fisherm-""You and Albert are invited too",Both went into another coughing fit cough," And he insisted....better not make a noble mad""Ya better stop doin that", Gabriel complained and Albert nod." Yer killin us"Now they know how you feel."But isnt it optional for them?", Hartmut whisper but you shushed him.It was a pleasant conversation as the gap slowly close and the bus arrived. You bed farewell to your instructors,crew and newly made friends but alas, you are still stuck with Gabby and Al.Though they made the journey less lonely, Gabriel borrow your shoulder and Albert use your thigh as a pillow as they went to sleep... You can feel part of your limbs starved for blood.Sometimes you regret having friends....(alright. Boot camp's done. Ill continue later in American's morning time. Ask anything if you have some Q's)
>>1571951Wait if germans are clankers the british and her allies darwinist. The hell are the americans?
>>1571981the million dollar question...The book was giving out hints but i barely remember them so....Darwinist due to allied power.But as you know, neutrals tend to adopt both tech and some even inspired by other such as the Ottoman Walkers shaped like animals
>>1571986Can we pull America into the war on our side? Or is the Double alliance pretty much fucked?
>>1571991PossibleSadly we are just a small, unimportant noble. Doing that would take time, ranks, power and a hell lot of charisma, especially to appeal to the Emperor
Oh and some update on the profile. Ill update the social link later
>>1571994So we're gonna die because Italy swaps sides, Ottomans are outdated as fuck and our roads are gonna need to be pulled up for more bullets? This sucks knowing its based on a rough outline of history and this ending will happen. And a damn shame we cause it
>>1572000In the Leviathan trilogy, They already build a WMD in order to stop the war and began the cold war.I might modify some paths from history and book
>>1572002Well if you don't, We already know who wins. And then we get Mecha-Hitler. Which i'm not against but you know... some might be. What the fuck WMD effects both bio-weapons and Robots? is it god damn nukes again? America has to stop it.
>>1572003Nikolai Tesla's electricity robot 'goliath'...wait. It didnt even stop the war and US enter the war. My bad
>>1572005When ya a history nerd, Feelsbad. Goddamnit. I fucking told you. Even with Italy, we'd still lose this war. Unless we can somehow get ahold of the Russian resources and popluation support. We will be unable to win against England, France and America if they fully involed.
>>1572007It is a soldier's duty to die for his country, whether they are losing or not. It is their destinyBut this is a quest anyways. If you want to change the course of history, let your ambition guide you. Be the admiral as quickly as you can but at what cost?
>>1572011That's alot of ship's we would need to burn through and kill ALOT of people above us in the chain of command, Plus we're the navy. When the fuck would we even get a say in matters? Don't need to tell me, Preparing to enlist in my nations of army within the near future hopefully. I'll gladly die for my nation.
>>1572012You forget that we are a lesser noble. With rank comes reputation and rise in status.God bless the noble system (backstabbing included)
>>1572012Also, Good Luck to you future soldier
>>1572013Does that rise include getting the ear of the emperor? Also how is he in the leadership of this germany?
>>1572017It does. Being a higher noble mean that you might get an audience with him, especially when they help royal parties.It is still the reign of William 1st and the chancellor mostly do the work
>>1572016>>1572026Oh thank god, The retarded one isn't in office. Is Otto von Bismarck running around? EOD has a massive washout rate because people can't handle dealing with explosives that will kill them if mismanaged. Thanks for the wishing.
>>1572029Yeeup.Shit, aiming for bomb squad? Hope you have steady hands and high adrenaline for that. It's like playing that buzzer game. Better improve your concentration bro
>>1572005 So, wait, what the fuck was that whole debacle with the Egg in the first book? Was that all or nothing? Was it a giant chicken?
>>1572038The egg was just a gift for the Ottaman emperor, a really rare fabricated beast. The emperor crush it i think
>>1572042Because The ottoman bought a fabricated warship from the brits but Churchill want it back despite being paid full. It create tension to Brite and ottoman empire
>>1571981Btw, i finally found it. The United States of America is mentioned as neutral in Behemoth, with a fusion of Clanker and Darwinist technologies. The country is split between the two: Clankers in the North (based on its industry) and Darwinist in the South (based on its agriculture). The country joins the war by the end of Goliath on the Darwinist side, three years earlier than in real time history.Really need to re-read my sources
>>1572047Gotta save it son.>>1572049>tfw south ruins everything again
>>1572049What book is this?
>>1572255This is the Leviathan series, by Scott Westerfeld You should pick it up mang
>>1572258I will go and take a look at it, thanks for the recommendation.Personally reading up on several history books on the immediate events leading up to the great war and why it came about despite opportunities for it to have been halted.
>>1572263Some of the key events are changed but the outcome happens none the less
>>1571951Here you stand...on the earth of your property, your home.The soft darkness of the night highlight the beauty of the family's house. Bricked wall and iron gates. The golden fields around it and the smell of sweet dirt that accompanied it. Never had you thought to see such scenery from the place where you have lived your whole life.Here you stand at the polished iron gate, equipped with your medal pinned sailor uniform and clothes sack on your right hand. Shoulder and thigh still afflicted with numbness but thankfully you let the someone else handle the sleeping luggage..."Master Ferdinand?", familiar voice greeted you,"By God, It is you!""Good Evening Elbert", A smile crept on your lips as he put down his rifle and opened the gate," Still on guard as always?""As always, young master", He bow and let his gentle smile be shown. He is older than your father and was a young boy when your grandfather met him in a battlefield. Suffice to say that he is your grandfather's pupil and willingly serve the rest of his life as a butler."Anything of note?", You walk beside him as he lead you through the front garden."Just trivial things. Your father still manage the estate and made friends with other nobles. Your mother planted few apple trees and blueberries. Sweet Ada keep trying to write letters for you but she still need to learn about sentence structuring.", He grin," Oh! Your neighbor is back from her tutelage in France""Oh?", Freja's back?"First thing she did was broke into your room." He let out his frustration," What has the world becoming to?""That we never know", you chuckle as you stand in front of a wooden Oak door. The red brick is till sturdy as you remembered. While the size is smaller than your average noble house, it is 2 floored house with plenty of rooms for visitors and your family."Are you going to enter?", Elbert let out his mischievous smile."Elbert?""It would be a waste not to surprised them," He scratch his mustache," Especially when you have grown taller and 'Shining Sea' medal on your uniform".He does have a point. >Open the door loudly and announced yourself>Knock the door and let Elbert handle the rest>Enter like a normal person. You are tired after all>Write in.
>>1572493>Write in.Pretend we died at sea and we're the ghost sent to haunt Freya for jacking our shit.

Where is mama?", Ada point at the kitchen and your mother appeared. Her look betrayed her age as her fair skin and blond hair still shine brightly."Come here my sweet boy!", you run to her arms while carrying Ada. How you missed these warmth..."Oh my sweet boy, look at you!", you let go of her hug," Why are you thin? You should eat more!""Oh mama, stop it! I know what i am eating"You put Ada down,"I am a grown sailor now""And you are still mischievous as ever!", then she twist your ear"Ow ow! Mama stop!", your sister just laugh"There is no sun in the sky and you are disturbing the neighbor!""Ok! OK! Sorry!Sorry!", then she let your era go as you immediately sooth it.,"Aaaaw! Where's papa?"And he appeared from the stairs. Speak of the devil! The black haired noble approached you with open arm"Congratulation Ferdinand von Brandt." He pull you into a manly hug." You have made me proud. Come, tell us what you learned"You regale the events that had transpired over your mother's delicious cooking
>>1572830(the QM curse is real)Morning...and you can feel the slivering light of the sun...OH NO!You quickly jump out of your bunk and stand in line, waiting for the instructor to shout at you.Time move but still no shout as your groggy head rebooted it self.You look at your bunk...its a double queen size bed with swan feather pillows and warm, silk sheet...The room itself was a bit spartan, containing only bed, wardrobe, table& chair.you are home...and not a dream either.You look outside through the window. The garden is still beautiful as ever with some addition of trees and tulips...The brick wall that sepe-wait a minute, someone climbing over the wall...A certain white haired tomboyish girl that you know.Freja!You panic for a bit, opting to change your pajamas or just wait for her to climb to your room.>Wait for her, feigning sleep>Quickly change to proper clothing>Ruse her: Use the pillow and cover it with sheet, creating an image that you are still sleeping. You hide then scared her. (or Write in. give me your best shot)>Write in
>>1572863>lay there exposed, bait her into the trap and then spring it via wrapping arms and legs around her tightly. Pinning her to the bed before procliming, This is why you will always be superior.

>>1572891You too?Wait... is this some kind of candle clove effect or something?
>>1572863>>1572871>>1572891>>1572877You have an idea!You lay down on your bed, exposing your body to the approaching beast. You can hear thuds and few curses as she climbed the window. Looking at her prey, she took a silent rest then tip-toe to your side.Before she can do anything, you wrapped her with your arm and pinned her to your bed. it took her few seconds to realized what just happened."Freja", a victorious smug on your face. She's wearing a simple summer dress? how did she climbed the walls with that?"Freddy", you always hate that nickname but she kept using it."What are you doing in this fine early morning?", she struggled but you are trained."Umm...nothing", An innocent smile on her face and your eyebrow rise in suspicion "Really now?""yes really...""then how about...THIS!", you un-pinned her and began the tickle assault , resulting in loud laughter and her hitting you. Her clothes offer no protection"Hahahha! f-Ferd- Sthap!""not until you tell me why you went to my room yesterday", You interrogate her"Alright! Alright!", you let her go, breathing heavily"It's because-"Click.. the door opened and your sister appeared, rubbing her eyes"Brother...What was that noi...Sister Freja?""H-hey Ada. Go back to sleep"They your mother shouted."ADA! WHAT WAS THAT NOISE?""IT'S JUST SISTER FREJA AND BROTHER PLAYING ON THE BEEEED"silence..."MAMA?""TELL HER IF SHE WANT TO JOIN US FOR BREAKFAST?"Ada look at he."Are you going to join us?""oh! no it's fine!", she stammered a bit,"ill be going after showing Freddy something""SISTER FREJA SAYS YES!", the Ada close the door. Freja look at you and you shrug."So?" You lay on the bed, next to her"Oh! I got a new pet from France!", She whistle and a strange snake-like rat flew inside your room. It entered her skirt then appeared on her hand"Tadaaa!">Pet it>Dont pet it>Ask about france>Write in(goin to my long nap. Remember to vote)
>>1572881Aww, could we keep the cape? And Hell Yeah Motherfucker>>1572982>Snake-like-ratFluffy noodle! >Pet it

>>1572982>>1572992>>1572998>>1573034>>1573206>>1573369>>1573432Your hand approached the creature and it hiss. Small sharp teeth with few strings of saliva but you have dealt with more larger creature, mainly Freja's dogs. Girl really love them animals.You slowly approach as it's hiss became a curious gaze and it sniffed your hands carefully. A warm and wet lick on your index then it bravely hop to your arm, playfully running around your arm like Jomungard encircles Midgard."So? how's France?", Petting the creature's soft heavenly fur, no wonder she love this dumb animal."It was romantiiiiiiiic. So many old building to explore and there are these taxi carriages that uses huge lizards! I wish i could get one", She pout." But it was fun. I learned fencing, this new running style called parkour and made some cocktail."Wait...what the goal was to learn how to be a noble lady or etiquette?",you are dumbfounded."Pssh...Details", she laugh it out and lay down on your bed," It's always nice to have adventures."This girl...Although she is few month older than you, she's still as childish as ever."And how bout you?", she sit up again,"Fredric come!" And the creature went back to it's master."Isnt he cute? I got him when he was still an egg", She rubbed her cheek on it's faceYou have mixed feelings, of cuteness and a small disgust."Feddy?""Oh right!, just finished naval academy and got a medal. Nothing new" You cock a smug"Hooo!, no wonder you got me. If it was back when we are children, ill already overpowered you." That is true. The only factor of winning was an ambush. If not, she will kick your ass."Lemme see," She began prodding various places of your body while scanning you up and down. You feel naked through that inquisitive eyes of hers," hmm, you did get taller and sturdier. NO FAIIIIIIIIR!"Startled, Fredric jumped to you for safety and cling on your pajamas as it's master throw a childish fit. You pet it again"Freja, you are not a child anymore and stop throwing the sheet on the floor!""No!" She suddenly pounce you,pinning you on your own bed. You gulp as she lick her lips,eyes burned for revenge.Click! Your mother came in."Ferdinand, did you not hear that breakfast is serrr...." Her eyes locked at both you and Freja." Take your time"And closed the door.Suffice to say that both you and Freja quickly went to the dining room......"Disss ish guud Mama Karla", You can see a bit of crumb from her mouth."Dont talk when you're eating", you berate her but she just shrug."thank you dear", Your mother smile like a sunflower filled with cold attitude of a mother in law."This is getting better" you sigh but a tap from Elbert always cheer you up."Young Master, letters for you", He hand you several letters.>open the letter with a royal seal.>open the letter with a navy seal.>Open the letter with a wave seal>Open them later and talk to family(what do you want to talk about?)>write in
>>1574598>Thank you>Open Wave, Navy and then Royal.
>>1574598>open the letter with a royal seal.I wonder what it could be.
>>1574608Open them all, its interesting and no reason to not open them.
>>1574611Yeah, but I figure the QM probably has a reason for each letter being a separate vote.
>>1574625uhh..yeah. I mean yer eating with family and reading lots of letter would be rude.Actually because i Dont know how to expand more choices
>>1574662>Reading the letters about our FUTURE is rudeI think our parents would be over our shoulders with each one.
>>1574598>>Open the letter with a wave sealThis is Wasser.Open the invitation and ask if Freja will do us the honour of allowing us to escort her to it.

>>1574598>>1574606>>1574608>>1574668>>1574671>>1574682"thank you Elbert", He nod and resume his chores.First you opened the Wave Seal and as predicted, it's Von Wasser seal. A high quality paper decorated with golden lines and blue ink."To Ferdinand von Brandt,You are Cordially invited to...yada yada...tomorrow night?...Yada yada..formal wear and the place is near the ocean too...and dont forget to bring your friends,Yours respecfully,Adolf Von Wasser".hmm..."Is that an invitation? From a noble too, i see", Your father did have a sharp nose for noble politics."It's a party invitation papa", you bite the roasted chicken," From Von Wasser""Hmm",he nod, hiding his surprise," Good job son."Then you opened the Royal seal, this paper is gold covered...even the ink is gold"Dear Ferdinand von Brandt,Congratulation for graduation with distinct achievement...bla bla bla... As a noble, you are able to join the Royal Fleet as a seamen....Go to the Capital... 1 week...hmm..SignedThe Royal Army"Then the Navy letters. There are 4 letters, each with their own distinctive mark, except the last one with a black paper and red ink.You skim through.All three letters told you to go to a certain place with the deadline same as the Royal Army but they offer you an officer rank.The last letter felt like a funeral letter. Same deadline but it says to go back to Blut Harbor....Weird."They are just recruitment letters", you resume your meal."One from Royal Army young master. It is an achievement." Elbert add. you nod.What is your plan for today?

>>1574756man, this is a treat.Writing
>>1574759>tfw Noble son wants to say his our boyfriend to make parents happy>Tfw we're accused of using him and being a playerNobility is hard Admiral.
>>1574756Without telling Von Wasser? It already seemed like we were intruding by asking to bring our friends along, it might be in poor form to bring a surprise guest.
>>1574759Lets ask Wasser first before dragging the Race traitor along. Nobody returns home from France pure. The whore.
>>1574734>>1574736>>1574743>>1574752>>1574755"Say Freja, would you like to come along?", wiping the last piece of the mean in your mouth, you place the cloth beside the plate."Oh freddy! I though you never asked", She grin and proceed to clean her plate.Suspicious..."Something's unusual here. you ARE going there whether i invite you or not, ja?", Interrogator mode on."W-what ever do you mean?", She stammers, guilt oozing out. Even her creature can smell it."You are going to force yourself in, Ja? Especially with old connections of your family?", Your face is a s cool as a marble statue."HeRK!", Bingo.Before you continue grilling her, her maid rescued her,The mature and slightly pudgy Maria enter the house, breathing hard."Freja Von JotunnDottir. I have searched everywhere and here you are, eating like savages. your father would faint if he saw this." Maria scold her."Ah Maria. Great timing! I am sorry and let's go home.", Freja smile innocently and quickly left, dragging the poor Maria without her fully recovered."She's funny." your sister smile.You need a better friend, like Karl or Hartmut.>Roll (2d100 for wis and con)

>>1574780>>1574786>>1574790>>1574798You planned your day with helping parents first. Sure Ada became a bit fussy but she have lessons to attend.After breakfast, you follow your father into his studies. The smell of musty paper and stale tobacco, stacks of books beside his work desk and a clean table."Are you sure you want to spend some time here? Better spend them wisely my boy.", He pet your head. He still see you as a kid,"Papa please. It's the learning process that counts.", he answer you with a proud nod.The work start with him giving you a quarter of his stack of papers. You analyze them.Most are just managing the estate with costs,taxes and remaining treasury. The rest are for managing the family owned factory. It was your father's dowry after all."how are you taking this son?", he ask, still concentration on his work."it's fine. A bit of calculation and re-checking but i will survive". Another taxation for the house done."Son...you have grown", This made you pause," but sadly i was too late to get you out of the recruitment. You could have been a professor or a doctor but here you are, a sailor."This is the first time you saw his weakness. Father was always a noble, a third son from a high noble. But you never know why he took your mother's family name."I wish i could just pull the strings in time", He continued," But alas, noble politics and their backstabbing.""What are you trying to say papa?", You resume working, hoping it would distract you from this developing sadness inside you."What i was trying to say...Stay safe son.", He look at you, the prideful and strong eyes he usually have was overshadowed by age and worries," I need someone to inherit this fortune and not some snot nose future husband of my sweet Adeline"And he have a strong paternal instinct. Few more hours of comfortable silence and trivial conversation, he let thank you and kick you out of the room."Get me some coffee from your mother,son. She does make a good brew", you know that Mother will dump her chores on you and came back few hours later with a grin on her face. It's technically kicking you out.The garden is truly your mother's handiwork. It was just an overgrown grass and weed when you are just a child. You found her digging the earth just beside the western wall."Oh Freddy!", You mother wipe her sweat ,"Done with helping Walther? I was just planting seeds for next month harvest. help me plant that apple trees. I know you love those apple pies." And its a dozen of trees and sack of seeds."Uh..yeah. papa says he want coffee", You sigh."He did?",Your mother's face lighten up, then quickly went to a her usual smile." Could you be a dear and plant those? The tools are there and remember to plant then in a single category."She quickly went inside. You went to work, ignoring the occasional loud sound. Three hour later, she helped you with the gardening. Her face is shining and her steps are cheerful.

>>1574848Psst Nobles man.>>1574843Your mother was a cheerful and spirited young woman. She preferred cooking her own food and cleaning her bedroom. How is this sweet woman came from a line of soldiers? You never knew.Grandfather always talk about her misadventures as a child and she still have some scars on her body, expertly hidden from public eyes. Speaking of grandfather, you should visit him later.With your new physique, the planting was faster than expected so your mother drag you to the kitchen.>you learn how to cook simple home made meal.Now for the last task, your friends.You began writing letters and dictate some of it from the invitation. From memory, Albert's town is near your house but Gabriel's town was next to where the party will take place.You could get this letter to the post office before dark or you could plan to search for Albert later.>Post the letters via mail>Post Gabby's mail but personally give Albert his mail.( this means you have 2 planning choice tomorrow)>Write in

>>1574852>>1574855>>1574858>>1574864You put on your comfy clothes and get to the nearest town as the sun began to descend.It's small miner town but a good hub for trading. Some from the edge of the country pass here so it's a bit lively. Few metal building mixed with wooden ones. Specialty shops such a blacksmith,glassblower or carpentry is plenty while a wholesaler placed on the edges of the town.You went to the post office. The metal building itself is filled with glass tubes and a small train-track for lifting heavy packages."that will be 5 mark for express service. Young man." Said the busy postman, as glass containers passed through the tubes,"thank you for your services""Thank you for delivering these officers", You went out>Chance to meet someone (roll 1d100. taking the third roll)

>>1574879>>1574984>>1575020>>1575023In the corner of your eyes, you saw someone familiar through the waves of bodies. A certain black haired guy passing by but far away for you to reach him."Falk?"Crashing against the waves of passing people, you gave him a chase. Few bumps and scrapes but you kept trying. CloserCloserAnd finally, you tap his shoulder."Hey Falk, It's your captain",He turned...it's a she?!"I am sorry?" She says. Now you realized that you missed few crucial points: She have a long hair and not a golden sharp eyes."Ah....Forgive me, ma'am. I thought you are a friend of mine.", You bow and quickly get away from there.Damn it. What are the chances anyways. Hopefully, Al an d Gabby got their mail in time.Having arrived just in time for dinner, you quickly reached the dining room and today's menu is sauerkraut. Hmmm.Ada kept complaining about having less time to play while your parent listen intently. It's just another peaceful day.Plan for tomorrow?(choose 3) >Play with Ada>Play with Freja>Get shopping Alone>Shop with Freja and Ada>Meet up and shop with Albert and Gabriel>Visit Grandfather.>Write in

>>1575199>>1575282>>1575285>>1575319As much as you hate crowd shopping, it does saves time and spend more time with your...ugh...Friends.Acquiring some cash was simple enough with the simple cost of your mother's nagging."Are you sure you want me to go shopping with you?", Ada cant contained her excitement. If she have tail, it will wag itself into a fan."YAAAAY! Shopping with brother!""Just so you know, my friends are going to be there so behave", and hope she's not the only one who behave."And you are not inviting me?", A voice suddenly whispered into your ears. Instinct kicked in and your body automatically grapple the intruder behind you. You got her arms but she skillfully tossed you away."For god and Fatherland Freja. Stop sneaking behind me", You stand,"One day I might accidentally hurt you.""Oh posh. You cant even win in a straight fighting", smug girl she is but alas, her strength is real", now for attacking me today and yesterday, you will let me join"."But that was-", you can feel your mother's dangerous stare and your sister's puppy stare,"Fine".Freja began to do a little victory dance, with Ada joining her. Women are truly terrifying beasts."j-just dont embarrassed me when i am with friends.""i wont!", she says innocently.You just have to prepare for the inevitable......"Here is the meeting place",you pull out your pocket watch."huh...a bit too early."The town was a mid point between the trade route of the Empire. Expensive, cheap and strange stores grow developed while negotiation system is pretty much alive here. They have a centralized bus station so it is a great meeting place for travelers. The public air pipe help reduce pollution but for the clankers, it is as breathable as the mountain air."Von Brandt!", A certain blonde friend began shouting." OVER HERE!"And he was the one approaching you. Him and Albert behind him. They are wearing casual clothes but Albert seems to have added a few layers of clothing in contrast to Gabriel's loose shirt."Here's our captain!", he pat your back and proceed to put you on his usual headlock. Albert quickly used this moment to perform his silent hugging."Cut it out, guys. My sister is here", Finally they let you go. Your sister and Freja look amused at this brotherhood bonding."Anyway, this is my sister Adeline Von Brandt and this is my childhood friend, Freja von JotunnDottir"."Pleasure, to meet my brother's friend."Both your sister and Freja does a simple elegant bow."Indeed." Freja finishes"And these are my friend. Gabriel Fisher and Albert Borsh""Hey there cuties", A large grin on Gabriel's face and put an effort not to slap his smug face."H-hi", Albert wave meekly but felt the threatening gaze of Freja that he hide behind you."Problem here?", It's your role to play peacemaker in this rowdy bunch."No, i just felt...strange", Freja narrow her eyes," It felt like Grandmama used to tell me.Stories about the trickster loki
>>1575439"What do you mean?", this peaked your curiosity."I do not know but my female intuition is ablaze". A last gaze to the terrified Albert before she shrug it off."That is a sharp woman you got there",Gabby whispers."Oh you dont know half the things i have suffered", you replied and began moving.You can start with the expensive stores. They are brand names and high quality.Or you can go less expensive ones but the noble might ridicule you.Last but not least, you can try the new trend: the unique and exotic gothic trend-wear.>Expensive store>Commoner store>Gothic store>Write inNote: You can always use your military uniform but every apparel will decide others first impression.

>>1575452>>1575456>>1575460(gothic it is)An ominous looking store caught your eyes. It had black curtains and a mixture of black wood and metal as the walls. The other shoppers actively avoid this place but you...you have a strong curiosity."Let go there." The sentence escape your lips. it was not a suggestion but an order."Sure! First store, here we co-", Gabriel saw it and quickly reach for his cross. Even Freja is a bit apprehensive about going there.So you did a cunning move. You drag Ada and Albert into the store before they realized what just happened. Freja and Gabriel cant halped it but to be dragged by you."Does he always do that?", Gabriel whispers to Freja"Only if his curiosity peaked.", She answered.the doorbell ring as you enter the store. It was musty and dark, with black clothes on the mannequin and few on the shelves yet it has no dust and kept in professional."Hello children", a sweet poisonous voice appeared from the counter. A lady in a funeral dress, face hidden on the dark gloomy veil. Albert and Ada quickly grab your clothes and hide behind you but you are not afraid...you are charmed."Do you have a ready made clothes?", You ask, no hint of fear in your voice."Ah...A brave boy you are. Come child, I know what will fit you." A sly smirk on her hidden lips and you did, dragging the unfortunates with you. Freja and Gabriel finally entered."It's dark in here", Gabriel says, still hand on his cross.You ignore them and follow the lady deep into the store. Piles and piles of clothes, material and scraps scattered on the floor and tables. It feels like a coal factory yet it is only for her. Fascinating indeed."Here we are, children", At the epicenter of the store, there was a showcase of mannequin dressed with the finest material and varying degree of black and grey. Buttons and plenty of pockets yet still in style of an English gentleman style. Some are two piece and others have three piece with a long dark coat.>Pick the simple gentleman suit>Pick the luxurious black two piece with a dark fur>Pick the three piece, complete with long black coat.>Pick another store>Write in

A dashing noble with a mysterious background but goggles? hmm, it does add a touch of adventure. We do have the standard car googles but we also have stylized top hat and cane.". She gently picked your order up,"anything else?"Ada became a bit interested in one of the dress but Freja quickly distract her. It is similar to a wedding dress design but with a darker color."You guys wanna buy it from here?", you ask your group and all of them shakes their head.The lady approch you with your clothes already packed."here it is, young man. It would be 75 Mark and if you wish for the full package, it would be 100 Mark"There goes your allowance.>Get the full package (Cane, Googles, top hat)>Get the cane>Get the googles>Get the top hat.Write in

>>1575732>>1575748>>1575765>>1575767As grandfather always says: if you go with it, take everything at its fullest."Ill take the whole package please", you take out 100 Mark and gave it to her. She gave you the googles, a smooth black cane coated with strong minerals and a polished grey handle, and a dark top-hat.You went out of the store in a large smile and an almost empty wallet."You have a strange taste, Von Branst", Gabriel shake his head"Indeed, you were always a curious creature as a child", Freja join the head shaking"Yes, yes", Ada simply join them because it looks fun. Albert just stick with you.The days moved on and the group went to several stores.Freja and Ada purchase a frost blue dress and Golden dress respectivelyAlbert went with the classic white and black two piece suit while Gabriel purchase a grey gentleman two-piece (with you loaning him some cash)They all decided to stay in your house until the party started."Is this your house?", Albert stood in awe,"It's soo big!""Are you the young master's friends?", Elbert greet your group.,"Please, come in""A real butler too," He kept staring at Elbert while Gabriel tried hold his awe."you guys go ahead," you nod at Elbert and he understood what you meant."B-but", Elbert quickly interject Albert."Please, young..master", He cough," He will join you shortly,"And you miss Freja?""Oh..Ill join in at the party", She wave goodbye before running back to her home. Only Ada was able to drag Albert to your house, promising to play and read some stories.This is your personal time after all and the path to Grandfather's was a bit longer than you remembered.The sky became a beautiful reddish color as you reached your destination."Hey there Granpa...It has been a long time has it?" you smile, taking out your medal,"I got a medal for the highest achievement! I am sure you are proud of me"The polished stone did not answer nor the graves beside his. In front of his graves were flowers and swords from loved family and friends. You can still hear his old grumbling and withering touch. You are sure that he is proud in Heaven.It is best that no one saw your tears(alright ill cut it here before the Game of Nobles and then finally went to years of services and action. How do you guys like the quest? Too slow? Any feedback is appreciated and Q's will be answered).(will resume in American's morning time)

>>1578434calm down boyo.Am writing
>>1575854The Von Wasser's house was large, 5 times larger than yours and it is beside the sea itself. The sound of the sea was deafened by the musical orchestra and chatter from inside the mansion. The light from the party became a sun in the darkened sea while the savory smell of expensive buffet suppressed the salty smell. Private cars and carriages were parked inside the property itself, almost hundred of cars were able to fit in.This is one hell of a pissing contest.Not only you in awe but your group as well."Damn, this is a dream house to me", Gabriel whistle," A large house and a beach to go fishing""Imagine what kind of walkers i can make with that kind of money", Albert almost salivate."O-our house is good also...", You pat Ada's hair, chuckling at her attempt to hide her awe.The guards and butlers on the entrance tick your names and one of the guide your group through, passing galleries of old boats,"This is the first boat manned by Guther Von wasser. It is in the earliest steam engine and still used cannonballs as Admiral Gunther carved his own territory."Then the butler goes through the long history of the Wasser with only Albert interested due to the earliest use of Walkers.You are aware of many eyes looking at you, but it is mostly young nobles. The older nobles just huff and gossips. Might be because you are the only one with the Gothic set, classy cane, and top-hat combined with googles."And that is how the Von Wasser still proudly serve the Empire. Please, enjoy the party." The butler quickly went back to the entrance.As you entered the mansion, the orchestra was playing a smooth slow music with the conductor waving his hands erratically. The interior was dazzling, as if the house itself was sculpted by Poseidon himself. Pictures of the sea and monsters beautifully carved on the walls while electricity light up thousands of bulbs across each corner.But still, eyes began to look at you specifically. It felt weird and threatening."What are you? The new pilot squad?" A snobbish voice came in front of you," that fashion does not fit here". Two young noble approached you.>Ignore>Play the noble game (aka SHit talk)(write in for bonus)>Charm your enemy (1d100 cha)>Write in

Either way, I dont judge)You are thankful father cram those 'how to be a noble' lesson into your thick head.Never let your smile falter, be as smooth as newly made blade, and complement their ego."Ah yes...but what is boldness without a leap of faith," a showman smile on your lips," Then would you be so kind to show me the appropriate style? You two look rather dashing ".The nobles seems to choke a bit, not expecting this predicament."Oh where are my manners. Ferdinand Von Brandt, at your service", you offer a handshake and they reluctantly took it."O-oh yes. Alexis Von Smitz", The brown haired noble says."Alfons von Dart. Pleasure", the other brown haired noble says.," You must be the one who defeated Adolf.""Oh?", it seems the news spread like flood," Yes, that would be me.""Ah! Forgive us but you does look eccentric.", three of you laugh and Alexis continues, "An honor then. It has been a long time since someone beat Adolf in a game of wits.""Hope it teaches that thick head something", Alfons finished."Oh? Are you close friends?", you inquire"Us? Just classmate from the old days.", Alfons pat his friends's back."Yes, we are not close but who wouldnt miss such extravagance party.", Alexis laugh.,"Anyway, it seems we have taken your time. Adolf will be deeper inside, near the status of Poseidon.""You cannot missed it." Alfonse add while... checking you out?," If you feel the party became boorish, please do find us. We know how to make things interesting"He added a wink before going somewhere with his friend.

>>1578580>>1578599>>1578601>>1578604>>1578606Better announce your arrival to the host.You enter deeper into the mansion. Paintings, statues, and large maps as far as the eyes can see. The Von Wasser really love their expensive arts.Glances and whispers as you passed by, the tap of your cane is louder than the orchestra. You walk proud and soon you adapted to the staring of nobles. Walking without fear and your silver medal is the only glint of light on your attire.Soon you find the status of Poseidon, complete with his glorious crown and mythical trident. It was the largest sculpture and placed in the center of the room. That sculpture is larger than your house...A bit of scanning and you found Adolf, wearing the traditional blue admiral uniform. Though it have it's rank, the uniform itself is merely a formal costume. His eyes suddenly met your and his face lighten up."Ah! Von Brandt.", He approach with a smile," I am glad you came.""I am a man of my word", you grin. A handshake occurs."I say, you look....", He look up and down, mixture of curiosity and light shock on his face.,"Rather bold. Anyway, come and meet my parents"You cant reject or gave an excuse as he quickly drag you to the people near the large stair. There, you met his parent. A rather LARGE tanned man, with graying whiskers and a fair skin woman with a dazzling smile. They wore traditional admiral clothes... yes, even the mother wore pants completed with sword."Mother,Father. This is the person I was talking about!", He proudly present you. You tried not to lose your cool."This if Ferdinand Von Brandt""A pleasure," You bow deeply, hiding the fearful face before masking it again."Ah, the young man who beat our precious guppy." The father speak, a gruff voice with power in it." I am Bartholomew Von Wasser. It seems you have the 'Shining Sea' with you""A great achievement indeed. Take note of this, Adolf. Even if you are a prodigy, someone will always beat you.", The mother voice was sharp and well-hidden, like a shark on prowl," But where are my manner. Angelie Von Wasser.""The boy have bold spirit it seems," Bartholomew tap his chin," A dark suit in the middle of this bright party. You have great humor" He guffawed."A rather unique taste," Angelie analyze you, eyes like predator," But can you move freely with it? Let us test it." She clap and the music suddenly change its tunes."Oh! This music", Adolf grin like a child." Come Von Brandt! See how well you made for this dance"You tried dancing once...it was not fun. Yet, he dragged you to the dance floor"This is a simple dance, Von Brandt", His feet began to catch the beat of the music,"Try to catch up">Roll 1d100 Dex

Such luck)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LPBmdVtpaQYThe basic of Empire dance uses feet, slapping and clapping with it.It was just two of you when the dance started and boy this attire is really difficult to move. Alas, this does not stop you.A slap and a clap and a slap and a clap. Remind you when you were small, dancing with your cousins and grandparents.Slowly, the pace increases and more people joined. Adolf was in the circles for two turns, laughing and keeping up with the tempo. Then he suddenly switch out with you without breaking the dance. A slap and a clap and a slap and a clap. This is easier than expected...and was fun. The grumpiness you keep puffed out like a smoke.Few more turn with increased tempo, until the dancers almost lose their breath and it enad as it was started. With you and Adolf.The music finally stop. Both you and Adolf dropped like a sack of potatoes, steadying your breaths as the guests made a thunderous clap. You saw Gabriel and Albert clapped too before resume munching.Figues..."That was...,"Adolf took a deep breath," Amazing. It has been a while since someone able to keep up with me."You give him a thumbs up. That's the remaining energy you have."So...", He scoot to your side," Where to next?">Regroup with your friends.>Talk to his parents. They might have more info on naval fleet>Dance again!>Write in

>>1578776>>1578779>>1578784>>1578787"I want to talk to your parents", you forced yourself to sand. Adolf follows"T-this early?", he seems to be a bit flustered."Yep, want to ask more about the navy before i decide which one to join""Ah...", Why does he sound disappointed?," ill lead the way."---"THAT WAS A GOOD DANCE BOY!", Bartholomew smack your shoulders, luckily your body is strong enough to endure the blow. You could flew away if you arent trained," Good foundation too? You are a surprise!""Yes, to be able to keep up with a Von Wasser. I approve you boy." , Angelie clap softly," but that is not why you are here, yes?""Yes, Mrs. Angelie.", It still scares you how sharp she is," I wish to know more about the navy fleet." This earned you a raised eyebrows from her."Barthow, look at this him", she laugh," Already know what he wants and not even a single minute wasted.""What do you what to know boy?", You have the Von Wesser's ears>Ask about the royal fleet>Ask about the black letter>Write in

Any first hand info that might be useful?"Bartholomew went silent for a while."Tell me boy, How is Rosch doing?", He is serious now"Instructor Rosch? He is still able to shout us awake". You scratch your head," Is he a VIP?""Heh...That old fart still breathing.", He grin." I knew him from the old day when I was a sailor of the Iron Fleet. We were recruited to the Silent hunter.""Silent hunter?", This time Adolf ask"Yes, my little guppy. It is an experimental fleet separated from Royal Fleet. Those who are picked sometimes never see the sky, only the comforting darkness of the deep oceans. I serve my time for 2 years in deep ocean. They are family but only three people survived as their duties end. We got commended and i transferred to Royal Fleet as Admiral""And the others?"You are interested now"Became insane...But they are the critical factor to win war. They are already equipped with anti mine, anti beasts, and Tesla experimental weapons. From the last I heard was that they are able to kill a leviathan alone." A melancholic smile on his face." When you stare into the abyss, it will stare back at you...then you realized why God hide deep in these oceans. I wonder why Rosch kept going back"That's...creepy...But it is a secret weapon."Ahh, enough with this dark stories. We are at a party," He drank his champagne," let me tell you about the royal fleet. They are the best of the best but in reality, they are just a safe haven for high nobles." He whispers his last sentence."W-what?!", Adolf is now in shock," why didnt you tell me this? I was happy to be accepted there!". Then he pout."now now, dear", Angelie pat her child," You never asked the first hand info". Adolf just grumbled."It is true. In my time as admiral, their ship was an innovation. 360 degrees rotation for artillery and turrets. They could demolish cities from distances and they have high quality safety mechanism so people rarely die. You also get the first seat of new tech. It was boring...." Bartholomew sigh.," Still get paid a fortune salary.""Last question, how did you two meet?", The parents look at each other and laugh."Ma boy! Even this guppy never ask about that", He laugh," I like you. Would you believe we met at parties like this?""I-""Barthow, stop messing with the boy", she pat her husband and he laugh harder," We met at work. I was his secretary.""And she was the strictest and tightest secretary i had. She always beat me in a chess.", Angelie just blush," and let me tell you kid, she's a demon when angr- OW!""That is enough," the wife smile while pinching somewhere around the husband's back."

The noble actively avoid them which might be a good thing."Ah it's our boys", Gabriel wave at you both, patting his belly," Thanks for the meal, Von Wasser"."T-thank you," Albert tried to sand up and bow but his belly tell him otherwise," Sorry...""It is fine", Adolf put on the proud nobility mask back. This guy really act different in front of his parent." I hope you enjoyed the party"."Damn right we did", Gabriel grin and Albert smack him."Psst. Gabby, show some respect""I am Al. They are my best pals after all"You just sigh.

Thankfully, she oblige."Poo...No fair. I had to tip toe ya know", Freja pout," How come you are growing taller than me now"You rolled your eyes and look at her. You expect her to use the clothes bought today but to your surprised. She wore the traditional icy blue dress with wing design on the top part."Oh..!",It surprised you."Surprised are ya,Freddy?", Stop reading my mind woman! "Anyways, i saw that dance and i thought you never want to do that again"."I was forced..." You look at Adolf and he shrug."Nope! Dance with me" She grab your hand and dra-"He is going with me, JotunnDottir". Adolf grab your other hand"Ah..I saw wondering when will Wasser made a move", Freja let out a smug grin. You can almost feel the intensity of their rivalty."He is coming with me, Freja!""Not when i am here, Adolf!""S-so...how did you two know each other?" You tried to distract them...they ignored you, going closer to each other and squishing you.Suddenly, arms wrapped on your stomach. Albert hug you from behind!"He's resting!", He whispers...but he got ignored tooGabriel laugh as if this is his favorite comedy show.You are just tired....Your feet hurt...You wish you are home, eating mama's apple pies

There are also times where even an extra sentence of description would be very helpful, for instance, the letter which was only described as "looking like a funeral letter" (I'm assuming this was the black one?). Sometimes you get a little vague when describing things in-story and it makes me unsure of which option I should vote for. Like I said though, I like the quest and am definitely excited to see where it goes.
