    Wicher decided to give the Polish Rectified spirit 96% a shot of the Belles that had just risen on the floor and those who have just started to drink . The next day are capable of fighting Russian and Polish Belles.

    I gave it a bit of thought before deciding on this. As today's Veteran's Day, I thought I'd share the man behind Captain John "Jack" Falshaw from my fanfic. A soldier in the Duke of Wellington's Own Regiment, not much is known about my great grandfather other than from a newspaper scrapping and a picture of him. He went to Canada shortly after the war and it is unsure what happened to him after that. I also happen to have from his son (my grandfather, also named John) his leather dogtags, handmade Christmas card to his sister, handmade leather wallet, record of service paper, and his diary complete with two photos of his wife In the pic, he's the chap with the mustache.

    HMS Centurion as a radio-controlled target, versus the alternative to using a "robo-ship". I like that they left out BGM out of most of it so you get to hear how windy it is, as well as the splashes and gunfire. ...By the way, Centurion pre-dates World War I and survived long enough to be intentionally scuttled near Omaha Beach, to form a breakwater during the Invasion of Normandy. Hmmmmm......

    Let's sea. How many major fleets? Japan, Germany, England, USA, Italy, France, Soviet Union.... did I miss one? No? Seven then? Seven fleets... and seven armies.... hm... I think I just found the Morgana anthem: For the anglophones (mostly the "Common"wealth): For the french (en anglais, excusez-moi) Why Italy, why? The glorious russian version! The japanese get one as well... And for the lack of a german version you get this perfect spanish cover up. Actual spanish versions (yes, more than one....) Also glorious polish version. Well.... kinda! (If it's Jack White, he must be a pole. No questions!) Look! Gdynia!!! And here's, last but not least, the appropiate US/Morgana 1939 edition.... love it! I know you will. This it what "they" sing.... the Nixensong.

    Here's to hoping this doesn't blow up. So it's been pointed out on Steam that the ingame tutorial is incomplete, the game's learning curve is steep, and the myriad of options available, while great, really doesn't help newcomers figure out just what they're supposed to do. This, I can personally confirm, is entirely on the mark. I figured I'd try and collect and explain some of the basic mechanics that the game doesn't, and hopefully shed some light on them as I go into more detail. If that turns out to be wasted effort than, eh...go read Bobbin Threadbare's LP I suppose, 'cuz I sure as Fish can't help ya'.

    I had been waiting for the Lies episode, but thanks to the D-Day episode they've just put up *hint hint*, I re-checked the 4th Bismark episode. in the comments portion, they note that sponsored series don't get Lies episodes, so I'm posting what they wrote as footnotes:

    I don't really know about carols, but one thing I can tell you is that in Spain the streets get their Christmas decorations as early as... last weeks of October... A "common" joke about it is something along the lines of "If they're gonna do it like that, why even bother removing them?"

    How often does the emotional connection that drives a Belle to select her Captain lead to romantic entanglement? Is jealousy an issue when a Captain has multiple Belles in his service? Be interesting to hear about this one from a Belle I'd think. La Motte-Picquet perhaps? Been enjoying more Belles turning up besides some of the fan favorites in the various updates.

    Hmm. Here's an interesting question for the Team: It's been stated before that Belles retain memories, if scattered, from past incarnations. What happens if there exists two ships with the same name concurrently? Say, if a ship was launched with the name USS Constitution during the war, would the still existing Constitution prevent a Belle on the newer ship from manifesting? What happens if the name of the older ship changes too? Like when Constitution's name was briefly changed to Old Constitution in anticipation for a new ship? Or if a predecessor is sold into new hands and renamed while a successor is built with the old name? What happens then?

    Well, that doesn't mean they can't have an interesting/funny interaction. Another thing to consider. That I can remember, we still haven't had any of these pairs have both belles being from the same nation, and Spain just happens to be the only nation that has EXACTLY two confirmed belles due to the Kickstarter's circumstances. And I have other reasons too...(?) *mysterious*

    Maybe Morganas could have zombie pirate crews...or spectral ghosts a la Pirates of the Caribbean. The Belles have their own human crews, so they could be enhanced or reinforced by the Belle. If anything, it would be like the game Dynasty Warrior with the Belles acting as the hero / officer units.

    The Academagia setting would also work for such a game with the Flying Isle only connected via flying ships mostly made out of a special wood that is lighter then air and driven by sails or some by steam engines.

    I know a a couple jokes about Germans Why do Germans drive the Mercedes? Because they have a viewfinder in the front and feel like in a Tiger. Three Germans walk into a BAR. Gdzie leżą Niemcy? Pod Stalingradem. Polish joke with wordplay from the occupation of Poland. There are two trenches: German and Polish. And so they fight with each other, they shoot themselves, but so far none of the parties hit. Until finally one of the Poles said: - What is the most popular German name? - Hmmmm ... maybe Hans? - ABOUT! Good! We scream Hans and maybe some deer will go out and shoot him. And they scream: - Hans! - Ja!? - The kraut leaned out ... JEB! Got a bullet . - Hans! - Ja!? - JEB! Next... - Hans! - Ja!? - JEB! And so they beat them up, there were only a few ... They think and think: - Maybe we will do that too? - JA! What is the popular Polish name? - Maybe Zdzichu? - Ja gut! And they scream: - Zdzichu! - (silence) - Zdzichu! - (silence) - Zdzichu! - Zdzicha is not there, is on vacation ... It's you Hans? - Ja! - JEB!

    Well it's nice that more team members have been added. But could we get a KS update that goes more in depth into the issues and what's being done to solve them. Also what they plan to work on and where the october eta comes from? it feels like it's been a while since there was an update discussing all the technical stuff the team was working on and it would be nice if we could get another one for more transparency.

    A classic one. An RAF pilot goes to a primary school to talk about what it was like during the war. At one point he starts talking about one sortie he went out on. "There was me and my wingman, just flying over the cliffs of Dover, when all of a sudden two Fokkers jumped us and I had to break off." Theres some snickering as he continues on. "Fortubately my squadron leader was able to come to our help just as another three Fokkers engaged us." The snickering continues until the teacher speaks up. "Children, please. Stop snickering. The Fokker was the name of a German plane." The pilot looks at her and says: "Yeah but these Fokkers were in Messerschmidts."

    A strange question for me to ask after almost 7 years of playing this game off and on, getting better all the while. But these are my general strategies: I focus primarily upon study-level raising, then upon raising skill levels in my PC's subjects, then in Research/Revision (or both; in any case, this is not difficult, since all of my PCs use and have access to the Venalicium, the Library of Stars, and the Library of Mantale), and then a few other skills that are appropriate for my character. This leaves me with little time to do many adventures or build up a clique; I consider my game to be very full if I can complete more than 8 adventures: The Main Adventure, a class-mate's adventure, Scenes from Dialectic Class, Oan's Adventure, The Thing about the Venalicium Library, the Edge of Nowhere, and A Day in Mineta are the core adventures that I finish. I really enjoy the adventures, so I have some questions: 1. Will this type of playstyle pay dividends in Y2 in so far as it will allow for greater competence in subjects and accordingly more time for adventuring? 2. Will the class mates' adventures have sequels in Y2? if any will not, which ones (so that I can avoid them)? 3. Will building up a research level to 10 in Y1 have benefits in Y2? 4. Will the Southside Pitts Gang (if that be the correct gang name) have a roll in Y2? I find the adventures with that gang to be interesting, and criminal gangs can spawn so many stories. Finally, if you think that I am not playing the game correctly, please feel free to tell me.

    I really think that the team need to be pleaded with on the class list. It's important that we get access to it before long. That isn't something that should be released in the last second. The class information will be important for our choices going forward, and the longer we have to wait the less time we have to set up final saves. Yes, we have pretty good saves, BUT they all were made with Y1 in context, As far as Y2 was concerned if we did something useful, it's more of a coincidence than any great planning..

    Just a suggestion really. It would make things a lot easier if active adventures were moved to the top of the list or at least had an indicator/mark beside them. When you have a lot of adventures, it is sometimes hard to find adventures you want to continue. Even scrolling down the list, it is easy to pass over the one you are looking for. I know it is not likely possible for Y1, but I would seriously consider it for Y2

    Oh, nice read & that's now. The variety I'm talking about, and the things I'm highly curious about knowing So, on top of Blyskawicka (twinned with HMCS Haida), we now have this, plus the three others to make note of. That's awesome! I doubt my Polish friend could play, but maybe I could do some nudging if we ever did get some Polish Belles for my friend to try, even in brief. That be awesome. My friend is Polish om blood so that's an interesting nudging point, yet highly unsure if he would bite onto this Polish stuff from his Polish bloodline. The part about finding the wreck being sweet also. Shame she had to sink. It makes me excited seeing more Polish related content, and such. Thanks! Very cool indeed

    At least early on, racking up stress seems like a good thing. Stress level controls how quickly you can train the stress related skills, and you can get upto 90-100 stress fairly easily (if you're trying to get stress) about halfway through Egypt. This means you can cap or 90+ all of the stress skills a little ways past Egypt (of course, drop the stress immediately after you're done). Your skills control how good your inspirations are, and lot of the top level inspirations end up influencing a lot of skills (plus they provide a high general bonus). So by having very high stress related skills, you can get very good inspirations quickly, which let you get through the adventures effectively.

    I had the girl I call my niece (she's close enough for me <3) test out the AI. She got them both in vendettas, and reports they're both meaniechu's and jerkface's once set off. Of course, as I didn't write the duel adventures for her, she's now stuck with them in vendetta mode and ruining her day... um, oops. ;; But yeah, neither of them are really nice in vendetta mode. Which is sort of just as planned.

    Legate I'm sure you really busy doing other stuff, but what do you think about doing some video walkthroughs on some of the more "advanced" stuff. For example, I really want to a guy based around item crafting, but I am really having a hard time understanding it. Futhermore, a walkthrough on some of mechanics would be nice also. How spell casting and skill rolls are really made, how buffs work, and maybe throw in somewhere that we should save before the end of the year if we want to continue on to year 2 It would be nice if there was an auto save for that too Just an thought and if it doesn't happen I'm sure the info will make it to either the forum, wiki or both at some point.

    Downloadable Content It is common these days - seeing in big AAA titles like Dragon Age or Mass Effect. Another examples are Fallout 3 or Oblivion. Think about as a "partiall Add-on", which you get through a download. They are often sold for a few bucks and add some Stuff like items etc. Since Legate said it will be free - you can think of it as a content patch. But don't get misslead, in general you often have to pay for it. Yourself have to choose if its worth for you or not Lets see what the upcoming "content Patch" (~ at least you named him so) will contain tomorrow. Hopefully they can really handle the fontsize like they mentioned it

    Since the game appears to run full screen, it might be possible to optionally adjust the moniutor resolution. Most monitors made in the last few years can accept this.
