  1. Past hour
  2. Dmnt; DYM is correct- the Captain's gender is left up to you. Although it's certainly true that there are definite ideas about women in '39, the Belles themselves may choose anyone, regardless of race or ethnicity, as their Captain. It's something that Admiralties the world over cannot stand.
  3. Today
  4. I invite you to find a single reference to the captain's gender in anything that has been written and released by BCS for VB. You won't. There's a reason for that and they've gone well out of their way to preserve that ambiguity. Kindly don't poke your dick at my dreams and aspirations. I don't appreciate it. Also:
  5. About that... I don't think it was even possible for a woman to hold such rank(remember we're talking 1939 here). So it's very likely that, regardless of the player's gender, the "Captain" entity might always be regarded as a male.
  6. ... Remember that the Captain can also be a woman. What may result when a ship's spirit and a Captain "love each other very much" is a whole separate question...and putting the cart before the horse, anyway. Some of these Belles have whole cities/ states/ countries/ cultures full of lusty people for a namesake and sailors are historically lusty people, so I doubt it. Still, the Belles are all commissioned ships of war, with a mission in front of them. I'm sure some put that before their own passion:
  7. Yesterday
  8. I have a question! I wish to know what the myth behind the morgana is! What sort of stories have belles and people made up to explain the origin of our mysterious foes? This sounds like a perfect one to be presented by the equally mysterious U-29!
  9. And what, the PT boats eventually grow up to be Battleships? Well, I guess they'd be CGs or CVs or subs since traditional gun Battleships will be superseded by guided weapons. Although, I would argue that the concept of a battleship is not depended on the gun and that a missile-toting battleship would also be very dangerous. And where would the PT boats be born from? Or would they be "hatched" in some way from a belle's *ahem* "slipway"?
  10. You don't know if they can have kids or not. For all you know, that's how PT boats are born
  11. Well, that was entertaining. The girls sounded a little offended. It was amusing how they imagined Mahan letting herself go after the war and gaining "torpedo bulges" XD. Clearly, Belles see romance and love differently from most humans, especially most humans at the time. Being ships, they probably don't experience much in the way of sexual desire, if any at all, and it stems more from a desire for intimate companionship (no pun intended). Since they can't have children and whether or not they have gender can be argued by some, sexuality might be totally irrelevant to them as well.
  12. and the remix
  13. @Käpt'n Korky and this
  14. now I'm curious of what le mote pieka (sorry if butchered her name wrong) has on her camera?
  15. (Pats back) Is okay, there may be some who could be in to it.
  16. i know it kinda kills the fantasy that some of us have but judging how VB has been doing things kinda had the feeling they would take the close to real life approve without hampering immersion and fun. (cries in a corner for no Harem T_T)
  17. S; Yep. We're getting to that time.
  18. That sound like the first thing we heard in the past that it might be in year 2 that is now on the cutting table ^^
  19. Ooooh...yeah that could be wildly unbalanced. Even if you gave the blood hound the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch to try to even things up how would it pull the pin?
  20. TwoHeavens; Well, true.
  21. Free & Rhi; 1. While our characters are given pretty hard level caps on our skills, for balancing reasons surely... Can you tell us of lore cases where a student managed to go well beyond the skill caps in their first year on a certain subject? I'll ask if they want to directly add one or two. 2. While being in a college surely gives us benefits in learning the field of magic the college specializes in, will that make it harder to get access to classes taught by a rival college? Yep! 3. Generally speaking, is the Mallen Star statue guarded at all times? Generally yes. 4. Does the color of a dragon signify anything about their personality, or lineage? The study of the etiquette of Dragons is a subject unto itself- but suffice to say, it is not a major indicator of either. 5. While larger Familiars stay in the Menagerie, many smaller Familiars do accompany students to their classes. Does Pamela accompany the player? Or did the Professors revoke that privilege a long time ago, haha! Looong ago. 6. Are there any good examples of how simply being aware of Mastery magic being used on you reduces it's effectiveness? (understandably if that is true at all it would be on a case by case basis) If there are...they would be [Redacted]! 7. Will Y2 have more opportunities to use Gates and Mastery in random events and stories? Even really bad ideas need to be used every so often, haha! Yes. 8. How thorough is Rikildis' fact checking on her news stories? She definitely strikes me as someone with no qualms about telling blatant lies if they were sensational enough and the risks for blowback were low enough. You'd have to ask her. 9. Are there plans to allow the player character have a clique bonus for friends? (not for oneself) Maaaayyybe. Not a very high priority, though. 10. How does dueling etiquette handle situations where familiars are utterly unmatched (say, one mage has a blood hound, the other a rabbit)? There are some Duel types which specifically address the presence or the actions of Familiars. Usually, they are unconstrained.
  22. They basically summed up the question like Short Round.
  23. Easy waves. With any luck there will be enough sustained interest that y'all can do a big art book after launch.
  24. Maybe Belfast wants to avoid the INPF Library for a couple weeks once the transcript of this gets around the fleet.

  26. Increased torpedo bulges for Mahan
  27. I believe the implication is that post-War, Mahan would get into couch-potato-with-a-book mode and get less exercise. No exercise + all the food she likes = a well rounded figure
