    Something I commissioned from Melisa and a reminder to vote for the Mardi Gras Belle since a commission can take about 2 weeks give or take. The girl with the green hair is Yamakaze and the one with the red is Arashi. I kinda pictured them being very angry Nautilus is a thing and has big boobs so they the made plans for their revenge. As one should know all plans of shipgirls and mice fall to pieces if the enemy is in the tactics room, Arashi from zhan jian shao nyu (Warship Girls) is not here due to diplomacy problem between Kancolle and WSG.

    Only what college exclusive adventures you have access to. There might be a few adventures where one college gets an option that other colleges don't or vice-versa, but those instances are very few and far between - I can only remember one example off-hand, of the 100+ adventures I've gone through, so college exclusive adventures aside it's nothing you need worry about.

    Nothing that drastic. Aranaz just has a bad reputation for being untrustworthy and putting their ambitions, collective or individual, ahead of the concerns/feelings/whatever of others. Some definitely are that way (Rikildis' response to getting a bad grade is amazing, in a bad way), others aren't, at least visibly.

    Your choice of College changes what college-exclusive adventures are open to you and which mandatory classes you have, primarily. A student who dabbles in forbidden magic can be from Durand as much as Hedi, or any of the others. RP-wise there's things that you'd keep in mind depending on what College you're in, but mechanically you're no more or less likely to be caught trespassing (or what have you) whether your Regent is Briardi or von Rupprecht.

    You have to go through character creation and get into the game proper, yes. IIRC you no longer have to get to the calender screen, although Gera's letter and any Familiar intro adventure you got (only Pamela, the Platypus and the Doll get one IIRC) wouldn't be hard to go through.

    There's no list that I know of. F12 is the only key you really need to know about anyway (check the quick overview of basic mechanics topic 'bout that). Probably. Anyway, did you check the menu and see if the Turn Off Music option is checked? If it's not I don't know what else would cause the music to vanish.

    There's an option to (un)mute the music in the Menu screen, once you've actually started/loaded a game. Beyond that I'm not sure what would cause the audio to be disabled. Actually, one of the F keys might mute/unmute the music? I haven't gone through all of them, but I know at least two of them serve dark and nefarious mysterious purposes.

    Declare Vendetta on someone you have a very low (like -8 or lower) relationship with, than trigger their Duel adventure (look for an adventure called "Gentleman's Duel" or "Something-or-'nother Rules").

    Today's update is on the question posed by a certain "Ninjapacman" about the theories on Morgana. Whoever this fellow is, he certainly has excellent taste in questions, and the presenters did a fine job of making common theories sound very interesting. Read the update here: Update 90: On Morgana Myths

    Alternatively, select the option that you're buying the game as a gift and have BMT send the relevant download codes/links/voodoo magic/what have you directly to your friend's E-mail. He can back-up and burn to disks what he wants from there.

    Guten Tag meine lieben Mitkapitäne! (Oh hey, I DID see you there. Blue text means english. Just look for it.) Da ich im Moment wenig zu tun habe und ich ein wenig gelangweilt, habe ich mir einen Test ausgedacht für alle die überlegen als Deutschland zu spielen. Der "Test" ist natürlich nur Spaß und völlig subjektiv und bitte nicht ernst nehmen. Und ich habe versucht ihn jugendfrei zu halten. Meiner Meinung nach ist mir das gelungen. Wem etwas auffällt, bitte melden. Achja, der Test ist auch so politisch korrekt wie es mir möglich erschien, damit auch alle die einfach nur Schiffmädchen sammeln wollen und denken, dass Deutschland einfach nur aus technischen oder ästhetischen Gründen die beste Nation ist, mitmachen können. Geschichte und Geographie sollte man trotzdem kennen. Ich habe versucht einen maritimen Bezug zu finden, soweit es mir als eingefleischter Landratte möglich war. Und jetzt viel Erfolg! Die Antworten sind immer im Spoiler. Wem etwas an den Antworten auffällt auch bitte melden. Achja und wer irgendetwas nachschlägt nachdem die erste Frage gelesen wurde schummelt und darf den Post nicht mehr lesen. Ätsch! 1. Warum liegt Ostfriesland im Westen von Deutschland? 2. Nenne drei unterschiedliche deutsche Kaisernamen. (Unterschiedliche! Hans I., Hans II. und Hans III. zählt nicht.) 3. Nenne drei deutsche Admirale von vor 1935. (Ja, prominente Flottenführer, z.B. der Hamburger oder Lübecker Flotte, vor 1871 zählen auch. Die "Lösung" ist willkürlich und nur exemplarisch.) 4. Nenne drei Flüsse die in Deutschland, im Jahr 1935, ins Meer fließen. 5. Was sind die freien Städte 1935? 6. Nenne drei deutsche Länder. 7. Nenne zwei deutsche Militärhäfen die 1935 in Betrieb sind. 8. Welches ist das größte deutsche Kriegsschiff 1935? 9. Nenne drei deutsche Fußballvereine! (Nur Gauligenteilnehmer zwischen 1933/34 und 1938/39) Bonuspunkt, wenn du einen Lieblingsverein hast (was vermutlich mindestens zwei Walküren auch haben werden). Auswertung: I made up a test for all those who ponder to Germany as a nation they’d like to play. The "test" is of course just fun and totally subjective and please do not take it seriously. And I tried to keep it totally sfw, political correct, rated E for Everybody and all that stuff. In my opinion, I succeeded. If you notice something, please contact me. The test is no test of mind or "Nazitest", all of you who just want to collect shipgirls and think that Germany is, just for technical or aesthetic reasons, the best nation can join. You should still know history and geography. I tried to find naval related Germany questions, as far as I was able to as a true landlubber. And now much success! The answers are always in the spoiler. If you notice something about the answers, please report as well. Oh and anyone who looks up something after the first question has been read cheats and may no longer read the post. Yah! 0. In case you are Wellington99, Everyone else, since you can’t speak proper German, you’ll start with -1 point. Die Befehlssprache ist Deutsch. 1. Why is East-Frisia in the west of Germany? 2. Name three different German Kaiser names. (Different ones! Hans I., Hans II. and Hans III. Does NOT count.) 3. Name three German admirals from before 1935. (Yes, prominent fleet leaders from before 1871, such as of the Hamburg or Lübeck fleet do count. The answers are arbitrary and only examples.) 4. Name three rivers that flow into the sea in Germany in 1935. 5. What are the free cities in 1935? 6. Name three German states of 1935. 7. Name two German military ports operative in 1935. 8. Which is the largest German warship in 1935? 9. Name three German football clubs! (Only Gauliga participants between 1933/34 and 1937/38) Bonus point if you have a favorite club (At least two Walküren will probably have one as well). Evaluation:

    Thought this would be interesting and since Nautilus uses them I think so would the other less detailed inclined US Belles would do so too. So that we won't get lost I posted them. Pacific War WW2 US Navy Terms US Navy Slang Wikitionary US Navy Slang PDF

    It seems only fitting that a ghost resurrect this thread, so here we go: January 1 1941 HMT Bandelero (RN trawler): Collided in the Gulf of Sollum with HMAS Waterhen. 1942 Toen Maru (IJN fleet oiler): Struck a mine south-west of Hong Kong, lost her bow and was beached. Later refloated, repaired and returned to service. 1944 Okuyo Maru (IJN auxiliary gunboat): Torpedoed and sunk in Ambon Bay, Java, Netherlands East Indies by USS Ray.

    Making your own fun very much is the point of the game, actually. You can certainly approach it from a min-maxer's perspective, but that style of play will run out of steam pretty fast. As for tips, eh...never really did a Law playthrough before, but lesse, I think College Hedi would be a better pick over Durand, since the former has the Court of Grace adventure(s). Good electives would be Dialectic (int based, fitting, easy access to Theology if you want to abuse Cleanse and Remake) and History (int based, fitting, easy access to The Early Empire/Certificate of Imperial Favor for the Sphinx). Lastly I'd say Negation, if you're not interested in Natural Philosophy (you might care about Anatomy/Archaology/Anthropology, in which case you should look for the Infirmary Library), otherwise I think you could make a case for Astrology, Athletics or Calligraphy. As for adventures that have you use your law skills...eh...I'm drawing a blank.

    Chapter 1 - Stand Before the Storm November 25 1940 14:05, log of VADM L. E. Holland - Operation Collar's convoy rounding Gibraltar carrying 1370 RAF technicians, HMS Manchester and Southampton escorting the merchant ships SS New Zealand Star, SS Clan Forbes and SS Clan Fraser with Force F. Fair weather and fair seas, and no fighting God willing. No movement reported by Force H's scouts. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ This wasn't what I had in mind when I think about going on a Mediterranean cruise, John Falshaw mused as yet another man gave up his lunch to the ocean. The Yorkshireman shook his head at the sight and turned his gaze over to the ocean. As much grief he gave those RAF blokes, he too was feeling a bit queasy as HMS Manchester gently rolled along the waves, and anything to take his mind off of it was welcomed. It was hard to believe that he, a former sniper in the Duke of Wellingtons Regiment during the Great War, was now lumped in with these pseudo-fly boys en route to Malta and Alexandria to tune up Hurricanes and Spitfires. Then again, they didn't really have much that an old war dog such as himself could do. His left knee began to ache as he started to move himself from the side railing and along the side of the warship, reminding him of the Jerry bastard that got him at Passchendaele. It was a different time back then, and remembering it brought forth a heavy sigh. He had been another one of those bright eyed youngsters who at 16 lied about his age to go off to war almost as soon as it had been declared. It didn't take long for the romantic visage to become replaced with the horror that was reality. The first battle he had ever been in had taken four of his best mates in a single artillery shell, and his second resulted in another two choking to death on poison gas. His older brother (by three years) got tangled up in barbed wire at the Somme, an easy target for the German machine guns that cut him to bloody shreds, and his youngest (by only a year) impaled by another's bayonet while he was recovering in hospital. By war's end he had seen every conceivable way a man could die on the battlefield, and he was none too excited for another Great War. Which was why, in an ironic twist, he was now once again in the military in a new world war, only this time he hedged his bets to make sure he would never serve on the front lines again. Getting work during the Depression was hard, but he managed to do well in a machinists job, well enough that when he applied to become a Royal Air Force technician they took him on the spot. Granted it was probably out of necessity than anything. He had little experience with the planes before he and the nearly 1400 others were stowed on board HMS Manchester and Southampton, so he had been trying to read up on manuals on the voyage, something that he ended up tossing aside. He was the type to learn as he worked, rather than to be straight taught what to do, and the manuals only served to alleviate boredom. Stopping for a moment for a quick smoke, John looked across the water to HMS Southampton, and noted the figure standing on the foredeck with mild amusement. It was unusual to have a woman on board a vessel unless they were being transported someplace, but this girl wasnt a normal woman. She was, as they called themselves, a Belle, a physical manifestation of a warship that protects the world from the Morganas, a group of seemingly demonic forces that want nothing more than to wipe out humanity. The Belles choose their captains with no discernible criteria, no matter what they are or where theyre from. There was even tale of a female American Belle captain, and of a German Belle going off with a Russian. Fortunately, Southampton's Belle stayed to her mother country so there was no fear of some foreigner getting their hands on one of His Majesty's ships. The captain was also a rather unsurprising pick, a Lieutenant who was on board for a training exercise when the Morgana fog rolled in. From this distance, John was only able to make out Southamptons white sun hat, though he was sure the daintily appearing Belle was enjoying herself in the sun. Funny how she would probably be better suited as the Belle for HMS Brighton, but that ship hadn't manifested a Belle yet, and she at least was a good enough representative of Southampton itself. Just as he finished his cigarette, tossing the butt into the sea, he looked up only to see Southampton's Belle rigid and staring to the east. Something caught her attention, something that snapped her from her usual cheery disposition, and that wasn't easy to do. Following where she was looking, he found himself gazing at a fog bank. It wasn't close by any stretch of the imagination, but from what the sailors told them, when there's fog, there's almost certainly a Morgana. It didn't take long for the ships to turn towards the south to try and avoid contact. With all these extra bodies on board, the two Town-class cruisers weren't at peak combat efficiency; the best tactic was to avoid conflict as much as possible. It was left to Force H to deal with any such threats. Heading back inside the warship, John took one last look towards the fog bank and thought he could see lightning coming from inside. Morgana or not, a storm wouldn't do well for Force F, and with any luck they would avoid it. Hoping for the best case scenario, he went down into HMS Manchester and to his bunk to see about trying to understand those damned manuals. Nearly an hour passed before the ship lurched, nearly tossing Falshaw out of his bunk in the process. "What the-" he grumbled as he tossed aside the manual he had been reading (rather using as a cover over his eyes so he could take a nap). He groaned as his knee shot with pain, getting down with a short leap. Those bloody sailors are trying to kill me, I just know it. Several other technicians were wondering what was going on, some trying to look out of port holes and others like John scrambling to the deck. As soon as he had made it back on to the foredeck, the fog bank had now nearly closed the distance. From what he could tell, it was well out of sniping distance but for ships it was right in the sweet spot. Again he saw lightning coming from within, except this time he could hear thunder, followed by a whistling sound. The water next to him erupted into a column, making him jump. It was a warship alright in there, a small fleet of Morganas. The thing was though, only a scant few shells landed around them, and they seemed to be deliberately aimed so they wouldn't hit. Most shots were being fired at targets within the fog, and it was unclear who. Another British convoy? A supply train? A group of Belles from Force H out of position? Things were slowly clicking into place for the former sergeant as the warships steamed towards the thunderous fog. The lurching was probably Manchester turning to avoid a shell and towards the fog, and the shells missing around them were probably to get the attention of the British force. At this point running away wasn't an option, so the two cruisers along with the rest of Force F were forced into combat. He just hoped that whatever happened, he'd stick to his plan of being as far from the front line if possible. Maybe the Morganas would be sunk before they arrived on the scene. In any case, he wasnt going to stick around on deck waiting to be shot at. He was going to head back down and wait this skirmish ou- "Oh no you dont!" A hand suddenly grabbed the back of his RAF jacket and began to yank him out. "You need to get onto the bridge, mate." John was spun around, and was looking right into a young womans face. "We need you, Captain." Oh, you've got to be kidding me =========================================================================================================================================== Well here is my foray into Victory Belles fanfiction courtesy of YuriMom. The next chapter will have more dialogue as this was more for setting the scene and getting the ball rolling. Let me know what you think. I decided to end there because it was a decent enough spot to do so, otherwise I would have carried on for longer (chapter 2)
