  1. He beats the rest of us to the punch with better info
  2. On a somewhat related note, today the USS Constitution set sail once more after two years in dry dock.
  3. After far too long of a wait, here's the third chapter of An Enterprising Captain. Please give me as much criticism as you can! If you read it, leave me a review so that I can make the next chapter even better! Chapter 1: http://academagia.invisionzone.com/index.php?/topic/3423-an-enterprising-captain/ Chapter 2: http://academagia.invisionzone.com/index.php?/topic/3423-an-enterprising-captain/&do=findComment&comment=51969
  4. This is a pretty good summary. Yes, even the most meticulous of us doesn't know what's in the VB team's heads. We can't provide a perfect example or answer for every question, but we have most of the basic ones covered.
  5. A lot of these questions have been answered in the nearly 80 page long General Questions thread. For belles, yes they have their own ships, which require crews. There's a lot of information that can also be taken from the Fanfics. In general the writers have paid attention well to the setting so you can probably get an answer from one of the Fanfics in the writer's corner. You could also ask any of the writers. It's certainly easier than reading through the general questions thread and all the updates for hidden info.
  6. We deduced that she's Queen Mary. Also, They already plan to do an interview with the host just prior to release, so they won't really need to write her and Mahan going at it twice in such a short span of time. I like the hostess with the Mostess idea, though.
  7. It does show a very strong dedication and connection with the fan base, so it would certainly be a good idea to keep it going. Don't do it too much though, I like the stories you guys are telling. If you listen to us simple common folk too much, they may not be your stories anymore! As a side note, I think Kirov and New Orleans together might be too much party for the captain to handle. Some time in the night he might lose his [REDACTED] and wake up in a denny's parking lot with no recollection of the last week, or whose underwear Hat he's wearing. Somehow I don't think "I swear admiral, it wasn't my fault. I'll invite you to the next party and you'll see for yourself!" is an adequate defense.
  8. The only issue with that idea is that Bismarck won't be released until the 1940 Update. Therefore, she is currently unavailable as a belle to be used in interviews or pairing.
  9. Some discussion came up in the VB discord on the topic of a Forum Quest, and we've decided it might be a fun concept to bring to the VB fanbase. Some of you may already be familiar with "Quests" but for those that aren't, I would like to provide a brief explanation, then ask what kind of quests you would like to see. A "Quest" as it's commonly called, is a type of forum Roleplay. It's run by a Quest master or QM for short. The Quest master is a writer who presents a Scenario to everyone, and everyone votes on what to do next. For example the QM would write: You sit happily in the officer's wardroom of the USS Mahan. The day has been stressful so far because the coffee machine broke down. It took two hours and a lot of swearing to fix, and the entire morning watch had to skip their coffee. Suffice to say, it was not the best time to be on the bridge. You recline slightly in your chair, glad that the mess is finally over when you hear the click of heels on the ships walkways. You sit up straight, making sure your uniform is properly tucked in. The door opens and you see exactly who you expected. A smile touches the redhead's lips when she sees you. She has always been easy to read, and it's clear she was looking for you in particular. As she steps closer, you realize she's holding two cups of coffee. One of them is clearly for her, but as you hastily look around the room you realize the other one can only be meant for you. "Good morning, Captain!" USS Mahan says cheerfully. "Do you want some coffee?" Her bright blue eyes seem to shine as she says the word Coffee. >"No thanks, I was hoping to get some shut-eye after that morning watch." >"Thanks, Mahan. I wish they'd finished those repairs sooner!" You, the voters decide on one of the two options presented, or if you have a better idea, write your own response. The QM will pick the option with the most votes, and write the next part. This continues and can build amazing stories, where you decide what happens! So if we were to start a Victory Belles themed quest, what would you like to see? As an example, I've made a couple ideas. Feel free to present your own. If I like them, I might even try to write one of yours! 1) "You" are a belle, dedicated to your crew and captain and the fight against the Morgana! 2) "You" are the captain of a ship without a Belle, and you don't make headlines, but your work is no less important. Maybe one day your ship will manifest its own lady, and you will join the front lines! 3) "You" are a crewman, Lost at sea after a Morgana attack, and you are picked up by a Belle from another nation. Will you continue the fight with your new allies, or will tensions rise in a foreign warship?
  10. That was actually the issue. I had glorious on my list due to the same reasoning, but Legate notified me of a belle that couldn't be voted for within the list, so I removed glorious. Every other belle who was on the list at the time has had an interview now, confirming all of them. That means that glorious was the unfortunate unavailable belle.
  11. I would like to second Nevada Vs Spee, because Spee has a wonderful pokerface, but in the unlikely case that my lovely German lady might possibly lose, I would instead prefer Graf Spee and Diether Von Roeder in the same room. Prussian Values and practical application! That would be a dangerous and wonderful pair. I also might like to see Nagato doing her honorable best to match up to Diether Von Roeder's standards. Or maybe Diether would look up to the Japanese battleship who puts her all into everything she does? Either way it would be a very worthwhile combination.
  12. 'Tis unfortunate, but I must mention that Glorious is not a belle, at least, not a belle BCS were allowing voting for. I found that out the hard way while putting together my list. As for Salmon, She's quite the interesting catch (yes the pun is intentional) but I think I have too many things to hide for her to be in my fleet. As a scout though, I loved the Girl guide theme of the interview. It was very fitting and nicely concluded the hidden belle interviews.
  13. Thank you for Graf Spee, I will be saving that for future use. It is wonderful, and if you ever get the front view, I hope it has her crest. Only scharn has had her crest so far.
  14. Then I would love to see a drawing of a certain Admiral Graf Spee. She's the belle in my signature, and by far my personal favorite.
  15. Well done! Are you taking requests? I have another ship named after an admiral that I would like to see drawn...
