    Picture I commissioned of Canarias done by ShuraKRGT. I really like the way he does more mature(?) faces. Wouldn't work for all characters but I think it fits Canarias quite well.

    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.

    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'. Anyway: (IMPORTANT) F12 Function: (Advanced) Familiar Training Strategy: (Advanced) The Forbidden Arts (Imagination/Improvisation 101 required): Adventures: Attributes (primary): Attributes (secondary): Character Creation (Mechanics): Character Creation (reference lists): Character Creation (tips on creating a character): Chance of Success/Failure, Chance of Detection, Glory, Parental Approval, Re-Rolls and Skill Substitution: Class Skipping and Detention: Cleanse and Cheesemake Remake (Or: Cheese and Remake): Cliques: Dealing with Bullies: Exams (or: Study and why it's (not) important): Exploring: Merit Race: Pheme Buffing: Random Events: Research: Rolls and Color-Coding: Romance (Or: Why a Lack Thereof?): Skills (Basics and Tips): Stress Bonus:

    Close: The sum of that (and all appropriate miscellaneous modifiers, like Familiar bonus and whatnot) needs to be bigger than or equal to the threshold to pass the roll. A roll of Intelligence 0/Grammar 5 v.5 will always succeed, barring shenanigans messing with stuff.

    1 Stress is equal to a +1 on whatever action/ability/spell/etc. you're making a roll for. A direct roll for, mind, not an indirect one like the Adventure action. Charm 2/Befriend 0 has a range of 0-4, add in 4 Stress bonus and it's a range of 4-8. Hence why it's useful for Befriend early on. Sheary's Help, when active (and you have to spend a turn to activate it, look for it among your Abilities), allows you to re-roll every roll once and take the higher result. It makes the bonus that attributes provide on rolls more reliable, since you're less likely to roll low numbers twice in a row than you are rolling low just once. The Gossip Action allows you to do that. It's a little messy, but select Gossip as an action, choose a target, and you'll see your target's relationship with every other student when you go to select a second target. Keep in mind, however, you only get that information if you're Informed of the first student.

    1. Balanced, with priority given to your class-related attributes if you run low on background points. 2. I'd say no, put the point into Insight instead. Immediate libraries can be put to work, but they're mostly a luxury. Focus on studying in the Venalicium Library early on and you'll unlock them soon enough anyway. 3. Get your Clique together, unlock libraries if you didn't get the background, keep on schedule with your studies, and finish the tutorial part of Oan's adventure. Don't worry about not going on strings of grand adventures or spending a turn Resting every now and then because REs went badly, that's early game Academagia for you. Once you've got a few months of skill points and the odd extra attribute point under your belt you'll be ready for some adventures.

    That, my friend, is still uncharted territory. I don't think it's really something to be discussed for the '39 release of the game, unless Legate has some special input...

    Mig, even IRL we misunderstand each other because we can't be in each others' heads - which is probably a good thing! It's 100x worse with text communication with people we don't know IRL so we cannot account for personal nuances. Legate has repeatedly assured you that your feedback is going the same place anyone else's feedback goes. I'd hope you wouldn't withhold your creative energies, whether it be your lovely art or your insightful opinions, just because of a misunderstanding. We've developed a nice family here over the past two years. Instead of a blood bond (Ark Royal, you can get out of my head now) we are bound by a passion for lovely ship spirits. Even families have misunderstandings but we share a bond and will all still come back together after we cool off a bit. Right?

    Hey Schwarzbart I was the one who mentioned Tale of Wuxia a couple years back in another thread. Really glad you liked it! I've probably played through that game a dozen times. Unfortunately, as you noted, the pre-sequel is more of a typical RPG rather than a RPG/simulator hybrid like Tales of Wuxia was but it's still a fun game if you've played the first one. But still if you liked it you may be interested in the current game being worked on by that developer; like the pre-sequel I think this is more of a typical RPG but it also seems to have much more of an open world feel to it if that's your thing. The trailer was released a couple weeks ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XvlVLS3NwQY While I highly recommend Tale of Wuxia I feel like I should warn you that the "official" translation was actually a community effort done with the devs approval and then uploaded to steam. What this means is that hundreds of people volunteered for it and as such the quality of the translation varies immensely. Some parts were done by people with an excellent grasp of both chinese and english while other parts are quite obviously google translated and barely edited. But if that doesn't bother you then go for it! There's currently a modding effort being done in the english community to improve the UI for the english version as well as to translate the free expansion which never got translated into english so hopefully we'll be getting more content for it soon. On another note it's funny that I haven't checked this thread in years but I've literally played every game mentioned. Birds of a feather flock together and all that Let me see if I can offer some more suggestions. -Choice of Games: Was mentioned back on page 1 but this company has really come a long way over the past couple years. Their games are also now available on the google play store, the apple app store, the amazon app store, and on PC through steam or you can play the games online directly through their website. Here's the full list for anyone who wants to check it out: https://www.choiceofgames.com/category/our-games/ And here's a few recommendations from me. -Choice of Rebels Uprising: My personal favorite, Choice of rebels is maybe the single best choose your own adventure novel I've ever played and I've played A TON of CYOA novels. It's incredibly in depth and if you wish to you also have the option of playing a mage character. You play as a rebel in a tyrannical magocracy ruled by nigh immortal blood wizards who've enslaved the populace. But if you wish it you can learn their blood magic and use it against them to lead your rebellion. Or don't, if you don't feel like it. The amount of options in this game are baffling. https://store.steampowered.com/app/748890/Choice_of_Rebels_Uprising/ -Psy High: Ok this one's definitely a bit more in line with Academagia so I need to throw it out there. Your a high school kid with psychic super powers at a super powered psychic high school. I can't really explain it any better than the official description. "Interactive teen supernatural mystery! You and your friends have developed magical psychic powers. Solve the case, save your school, find a date for prom!". https://store.steampowered.com/app/339510/Psy_High/ -Choice of Romance: Another one more in line with Academagia. You're not a teenager in this one but instead a young nobleman/or noblewoman who lives in medieval fantasy setting. In the country you live in all the nobles are mages so of course you can choose to have a magic focused character if you please. The plot involves you getting shipped off to the royal court by your family in an attempt to help you find a suitor or possibly increase your family's standing by playing court politics. https://store.steampowered.com/app/492370/Affairs_of_the_Court_Choice_of_Romance/ -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -Winter Wolves: Was mentioned earlier in the thread but I don't think anyone linked any games. Winter Wolves is a small indie company that makes very high quality games. His games tend to be a mix visual novels/RPGs or visual novels/simulation. My personal favorite are his visual novel/rpg hybrid games set in Aravorn, his own medieval fantasy setting. Gonna forewarn you now but I'm a huge fanboy of all of the games Winter Wolves makes. Here's the home page if you want to browse the full collection: https://www.winterwolves.com/ And here's a list of games set in the Aravorn setting: -Loren The Amazon Princess: Visual Novel/RPG. The first game made in his Aravorn series, anyone whose played those old Bioware table top inspired PC RPGs will enjoy this series. A long fantasy epic with the option to play as male or female with multiple romances for both genders and sexualities, a large cast, different endings based on your choices and relationships, and turn based battles. As you'd expect from an epic fantasy game it involves saving the world from an ancient evil. Also comes with the free expansion pack Castle of N'Mar. This game also won several awards for an indie game. https://www.winterwolves.com/lorenamazonprincess.htm -Tales of Aravorn - Seasons of the Wolf: Visual Novel/RPG. A spiritual successor of sorts to Loren so it's recommended to play that first. Also set in Aravorn and after Loren although not directly related to the story of that game. Like Loren it's a long fantasy RPG with the option to play as male or female with multiple romances for both genders and sexualities, a large cast, different endings based on your choices and relationships, and turn based battles. Unlike Loren which has a more "epic" plot Seasons of the Wolf instead has a more down to earth and focused plot; you're not heroes trying to save the world, but just two elf siblings who were captured by slavers and are just trying to get back home half the world away. It uses an improved version of the game mechanics of Loren since it came afterwards. Also has an expansion called "Bad Blood" that needs to be purchased in addition. Game: https://www.winterwolves.com/seasonsofthewolf.htm + Expansion: https://www.winterwolves.com/SOTWbadblood.htm -Cursed Lands: Visual Novel/RPG. The newest game in the Aravorn setting that just came out a couple weeks ago. This one is a direct prequel to Loren the Amazon Princess so it's necessary you play that game first; and personally I'd also recommend playing SotW before this one as well. Uses the same game mechanics as Loren and SotW but even further improved. Like the previous two games this is a long fantasy RPG where you can play as male or female, features a large cast with several romance options for both genders and sexualities, different possible endings based on your choices and relationships, and turn based battles. I actually haven't played this one yet but I'm expecting it to be amazing just like the previous two games. https://www.winterwolves.com/cursedlands.htm -Queen of Thieves: Visual Novel/RPG(lite)/Dating Simulator. A spin off game in the Aravorn setting. Unlike the main titles which are lengthy RPG games this one is actually a dating sim set in a single city and its surrounding environs that exists in the Aravorn setting. It also has some lite RPG aspects like turn based combat, equipment & loot, skill trees, etc. but it's toned down in comparison to the main Aravorn titles above. As well as some thievery themed mini-games. In this game you simultaneously play as three sisters, all renowned thieves, who are the daughters of a legendary female thief called the Queen of Thieves who vanished when they were children. Romance options include both straight and lesbian love interests for all of the sisters. https://www.winterwolves.com/queenofthieves.htm -Amber's Magic Shop: Visual Novel/Dating Simulator/Shop Builder Simulator. The only Aravorn game that doesn't feature RPG features like combat. Like Queen of Thieves this is a dating simulator set inside a single city in the Aravorn setting as well as its surrounding environs. It doesn't have combat but it does have a neat crafting system which you use to manage and stock your very own magic shop. There are still some RPG aspects in the form of quests that require you to utilize the crafting system to craft very specific items and fill requests. In this game you play as a young dark elf woman named Amber; she's an aspiring alchemist and has moved to a large city to try and start a successful business. Romance options include both straight and lesbian love interests. And that's it for the Aravorn titles. Keep in mind he has a bunch of great games outside of Aravorn, I just personally am a huge fan of medieval fantasy RPG and simulator games. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -Hanako Games: Ok I don't think I need to explain her games since she was in the thread earlier and all . Suffice to say, all her games are QUALITY. My personal favorites are Magical Diary, Long Live the Queen, and Black Closet, but really they're all great. To anyone who has played her games before but not for awhile go check out the website! She's had some great releases recently. If anyone wants more in depth rundowns on her games just let me know I've played almost all of them. https://www.hanakogames.com/ -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Speaking of Visual Novel/Stat raising simulators there's been a few releases on steam the past couple of years. To anyone not familiar with this genre they usually involve you mentoring a young girl(s) in order for her to grow up and become a successful adult and use a combination of visual novel storytelling combined with RPG like stat raising and schedule management simulation They tend to include various romance options for your "daughter" as well as multiple different endings based on your choices and her stats. To anyone whose played the amazing Long Live the Queen from Hanako games that would also fall into this category. -Littlewitch Romanesque - Editio Regia: Princess Maker was mentioned earlier in the thread so I think this deserves a mention. It's more of a visual novel in comparison to that series but it also features some simulation aspects such as stat-raising and mini-games to influence said simulation aspects. You play as a powerful reclusive wizard who's been tasked with mentoring two very talented but naive young witches. Raise their stats through mini-games and managing their schedules and lessons, send them on quests etc. https://store.steampowered.com/app/349300/Littlewitch_Romanesque_Editio_Regia/ -Princess Maker series: Way back in 2011 someone mentioned in this thread that Princess Maker 5 was being fan translated. Well that fan translation got picked up and made official and was released last week on steam. Over the past few years the developer has been trying to get the entire series translated and released on steam -Princess Maker Refine: An updated verson of the original game from 1991. https://store.steampowered.com/app/583040/Princess_Maker_Refine/ -Princess Maker 2 Refine: An updated version of the second game from 1993. This one has stayed a fan favorite despite its age. https://store.steampowered.com/app/523000/Princess_Maker_2_Refine/ -Princess Maker 3 - Fairy Tales Come True: Third title in the series. Originally released on playstation in 1997. I haven't actually played this one so I can't really comment on it but the general consensus among fans is that 2 was the better game. https://store.steampowered.com/app/650110/Princess_Maker_3_Fairy_Tales_Come_True/ -Princess Maker 5: The latest game in the franchise from 2007. If the other games in the series feel to dated for you this one is your best bet. I haven't played this one yet but the game was very well received on launch. In comparison to previous titles it's noted for being a much longer game. Some people liked that aspect while others didn't; it's up to you to decide. https://store.steampowered.com/app/724250/Princess_Maker_5/ -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -Stardew Valley: I wouldn't really consider this one similar to Academagia but Harvest Moon was mentioned earlier so I think this deserves a mention. Obviously inspired by Harvest Moon and the genre that spun off of that this game is a combination of a farming sim and a dating sim. It also features some very RPG lite features like a bare bones action combat system. Start a farm, cultivate your land, harvest your crops, raise livestock, expand your farm with more buildings, explore the neighboring town and meet its extensively well written denizens. Find love and have a baby etc. I feel like much doesn't need to be said about this game since it's one of the best selling indie games of all time I'd be really surprised if anyone here hadn't heard of it. https://store.steampowered.com/app/413150/Stardew_Valley/ -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- And that's it for now. I've actually got a lot more to recommend but it's 2 AM and I've got class in the morning . I've got a whole list of games inspired by or similar to King of Dragon Pass as well as some very well written english visual novels for people who really liked the storytelling aspect of Academagia so I'll try to list those tomorrow when I'm free.

    I like your idea on having those two air nations duke it out, but I believe that I want to see a little more diversity in the fleets after all. So let's have it go something like this: Hiryu, Nagato, Pola, Canarias, Kirov, Diether Von Roeder, U-29 VS Lexington, Goeben, Swayback Maru, DeRuyter, Belfast, Wicher, Surcouf And regarding the options, Option 1! My respect for seniority outweighs my sarcasm in this instance.

    This is meta gaming, but since you asked... I generally explore for two locations. The Incantation classroom, if I don't have the course, and the Imperial Palace: Grand Library. The incantation classroom (region Academagia, surprise ) informs you of the 'Theory of Incantation' subskill in turn needed to enroll in Esteban Contu's School of Incantation, the best place to learn Incantation. The Imperial Palace: Grand Library is a good way to unlock the The Library of Longshade (region Imperial Reserve), without the RNG of the Venalicium Library. The Imperial Palace: Grand Library can be found even with a fresh character, but if you want to find it in one go, some save scumming is needed.

    I do things I can do with my current workmanship, so everything may change, but it may be as it is. Either way, I will draw various things. It is possible to mail my doujins overseas, but it is very difficult to receive the price. Moreover, it is very expensive. I am considering being able to browse with pixiv etc etc.

    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.

    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."
