    You are 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

    Industrial Mandate-(more weird tech and worker support, heavy tax)

    10 RP remains, you have 140 workers, 95 rifles, 20 mercenaries, 50 experts available. 5 rifles got captured at the end of the colony phase. Your colony work is progressing well with the following in place:

    1st ring- vehicle depot, fortified main barracks, fortified main hq,4 watchtowers, mortar pit, gatling trucks in vehicle depot, mine, heavy fortified trenches.

    2nd ring- additional barracks, 2 farms, 1 well, 1 brick sawmill, trade depot, wood trenches,

    3rd ring- new barracks, armory with foundry, light trenches

    Additional Resources and info: Winston led 20 med away to track the French Mining Company troops, he will return in 2 days. you have 2 crates of dynamite available and the super important road is 70 % done. ORDERS?

    Your men form up in ranks in the trenches and open fire, destroying hundreds of the natives, but they just keep on coming.

    Moar dynamite.

    The natives while fleeing took anyone alive who could move with them and killed any native who might be captured. The convoy arrives. You scrape together enough silver for you tax and in return they give you 20 riflemen and two more gatlings like you requested in the last wishlist. Royal convoy in 10 days. Also included in the shipment were more bricks for building. do you scout out the city again? do you expand the settlement? do you try to track down the natives? ORDERS?

    Personally, I think we are short handed and need to wait for reinforcements before exploring the city.
    Until they arrive, completion and defense of the road should be highest order of business. Spke heads along the road to warn off the death tribals.
    Althoguh perhaps we could take Winston and whatever of his men that survived and go snoop around the city immediately, take a truck for fire supprot? What say you, Englishmen?
    >> VIctorian Economy Some Steampunk Dude 11/21/09(Sat)18:00 No.6806843
    Ok, an economic summary. The natives seem to know how to farm underneath the jungle treetops, but you have not uncovered one of their settlements. You are sitting on top of a silver mine that requires 3 crates of dynamite to reactivate. The ancient cursed city nearby (CHECK THE LAST THREAD) is the best hope for money, but it requires sending expeditions. Also, the mercs are getting rowdy. ORDERS?

    Wait, we outlawed slavery? Well i guess they'll be prisoners of war, then. Don't bother me with details, Winston!

    The raid shall proceed, a pre-dawn attack, methinks. But do we let Winston lead it? Or have him guard the fort and we lead personally? I'm inclinded to the latter.
    the goal for the raid is to kill, burn, and capture workers. if possible we want to totally raze the village and leave nothing behind.
    >> Victorian Raid CRISIS Some Steampunk Dude 11/21/09(Sat)18:17 No.6807061
    You lead the soldier deep into the jungle, and find the village mostly undefended which is strange as the number of habitations accounts for more than twice the number of warrior men that assaulted your colony. Do you still raze the place? more captives or more killed? Do you look for anything in particular to steal? ORDERS?

    No, they convoy guards JUST GUARD the convoys,not help you.
    You dont know the language of the natives, but they keep pointing north and trying to run west. Stupid natives. Anyways, you might want to wait for the royal shipment +bonus (10 RP remaining) before you set out on an expedition. any ORDERS for the settlement?

    We need to give some thoguht to getting lumber operations going, chaps, or expanding existing ones. We're surrounded by excellent teak, mahogany, who knows?
    Also, is there enough dynamie to get our mine running? If not, requisition it with priority for next shipment. That's hard coin for the coffers.

    The city is Northeast, and the French have been spotted due north.

    continue building the road, reinforce the trenches, go into the city to find a god dam translator. Seeing the convoy guards are what little use to me i order them to help watch over the construction

    You use the wonderful brick sawmill that your predecessor anon built to trade with the convoy. They give you an anti tank rifle, a crate of dynamite (you now have enough to reactivate the mine, confirm y/n?) 10 royal grenadiers, and also your bonus is 10 native refugees who know the land and are super farmers and alright scouts. They also know the language. ORDERS?

    Begone, you stupid Jerry, we are about the Queen's business here.
    Add Genadiers to expeditionary force, give Winston a field promotion and leave him in command of the camp in our absence, with orders to use our dynamite and get that mine open. Keys to a viable colony are an open trade route and something to trade.
    Native friends? Awesome! Take 2 with us to translate and let the others start with some farming.
    Ourselves, Grenadiers, AT Rifles, and the gatling trucks should make a good away force and leave a sufficient garrison. Arrange an emergency flare signal if possible so we can know if the base is attacked , then set out to the City.

    Okay, you lead the convoy to go into the city. You bring 2 natives, yourself, Godfried the scribe, 20 Rifles, 10 mercs, 10 royal grens, a gatling truck, and the AT rifle. CRISIS mode until you return, as you cant manage the settlement while you are gone.

    Expedition consisting of
    All 10 grenadiers
    All 20 mercenaries
    Gatling Trucks
    AT Riflemen
    25 handpicked Riflemen, the ones we've noticed in the previous fights.

    You approach the entrance to the downward city, built into what seems like a giant whole in the earth. There are serpent symbols in green on the walls (painted recently) and Death tribe symbols that your natives tell you are warnings. Do you proceed inwards? the truck cant come and will stay outside with 5 rifles.

    Good enough, travel in loose formation around the trucks, use caution as we proceed and so forth.

    Snake worship? these iggers are capable of any sort of debasement. Luckily for them, we come bearing civilisation.
    Take a moment to prepare torches in case we need them , and then march in.

    Give them a flare gun any sign of trouble at their end, pop it

    The city seems abandoned, but your natives are on edge. The death tribe markings have disappeared, its all snakes now. REMINDER: you left the gatling at the entrance. You reach a giant stone hall that ends in a giant staircase downwards into darkness. ORDERS?

    Yes, apparently this place is cursed or forbidden, or some other such nonsense. have I got it right? It's bad juju and they don' want to go in.
    A pity, because we're lighting torches and going in to have a look around inside. Onwards, lads...

    OP, this is personal opinion, but you reply too often, not leaving enough time for orders to be posted.

    This leads to you posting in response to orders that people don't even know have been issued, and by the time they post their suggestions, they're already behind, which means you base the decisions on one or two posts, which just keeps the cycle going.
