    My internets botched my first quest attempt earlier today. Please bear with me as this is my first real quest attempt on /tg/.

    It is the grand age of exploration in the world, and the height of British power. The turn of the century marks new technologies, and also new opportunities as the number of unexplored locations grows fewer. The center of the Dark Continent, brimming with hidden treasures taunts all those with the resources to go for them. You are just that sort of person, and by the Queen you will make your fortune here.

    Choose your Character: Captain Roarke: A charismatic retired British Officer, you have led men all around the world, most famously in British India. You do this not for personal gain but for the sense of adventure. You are famously bad with managing supplies, but your men love you and will fight for you until the end.

    Combat Skill (How well your character personally does in combat situations): Medium
    Supply Requisition (How often you get reinforcements and supplies): Medium
    Charisma (How much your men like you): Extremely High
    Economic Management (How well you can manage your settlement’s economy): Low

    Christopher Three-Quartermain: The great white hunter, down on his luck and his finances. Great combat ability, but your men have heard of your defeats in the jungles and have lost some faith in you.

    Combat Skill (How well your character personally does in combat situations): HIGH
    Supply Requisition (How often you get reinforcements and supplies): Low
    Charisma (How much your men like you): Medium
    Economic Management (How well you can manage settlement’s economy): Medium

    Laura O’Neil: Not quite the average Victorian Lady, you are using your dead husband’s fortune to give one last adventure in his memory. He was a supply officer and quite a good one at that so you learned much. You know basic self-defense. Your men don’t trust a lady leading them into the jungle, and will need to have their belief in your abilities strengthened.

    Combat Skill (How well your character personally does in combat situations): Low
    Supply Requisition (How often you get reinforcements and supplies): High

    At the supply depot, you are offered several choices. There are several catagories of supplies that are available. Food, weapons, building materials, and transports. From 1-5 in descending importance list the order in which you want to place emphasis on dif supplies.

    1:Building Materials

    You get the highest quality building materials and very good single shot rifles and weapons as they are very important. You get some low quality military trucks and some horses for transport and you use basic military rations for food. In the extra space you stuff rum rations and fuel canister, this might be a problem in the future.

    You are at the grunt depot. There are several types of people. You can get up to 200 men, and if you spend 5 reputation you can get another 50. They come in blocks of 50.

    Rifles: Ex army vets best in combat, not to useful for non army stuff but they are sappers to an extent

    Workmen: Builders, clearers, miners, lumberjacks, these guys are really useful but no good in a fight.

    Hunter Mercenaries: Much better in combat than soldiers, but likely to rebel if things go sour and refuse to do any grunt work whatsoever

    Experts: Geologists, retired workers, these guys know there way around africa but are likely to rebel.

    Native guides: spend 5 requisition points to be able to get native guides. These dont count against your troop numbers.

    Oh, well that's even better! I thought the taxation would affect the common class, but if we are going to be governing the settlement then yeah I guess it would come from us. As long as we make something that we can profit from, it should be all good.

    We have 15 points left right? Then I say we spend 5 to get an economics aid.

    okay, you go back to the explorer's guild to finalize. You have to choose your hopeful destination.

    River Settlement- Easy to recieve supplies, easy to get to, native tribes might be a problem, other explorers might find you, unlikely to find grand treasure.

    Treasure City- you establish your outpost on the outskirts of an abandoned city. You might face fierce resistance but there would be big rewards, making it easier to pay those taxes. Very hard to resupply. 5 Reputation cost to do this

    Jungle mine (suggested)- you find a small vein of a mineral and get working, medium all round

    Was Tesla Victorian-era?

    If yes, insta-win.

    There does exist a portable arc-gun, but its range is measured in inches - it's more a deterrent than an actual weapon, although since it's shaped like a suitcase and it's filled with batteries, it would make a decent club.

    But figure out how to put a 10kW resonant coil, with power supply, into a portable device, and there you have it: a dear-Jesus-what-have-I-created lightning gun. Although its range would be weak at best, the noise level and the light show would be terrifying at close quarters. And anyone who did get struck by a bolt, well, he's going to have some nasty burns. Those arcs are really goddamn hot - and if you find a way to limit the output voltage to merely ludicrous (rather than indescribable), increasing the power output will be increasing the amperage. Amperage is what does the damage.
