    I PROPOSE A SUGGESTION. A SUGGESTY SUGGESTION THAT SUGGESTS SUGGESTIVELY. In Other words I propose something that could raise morale and hype again before release. New Interviews. It would only be a couple. One a month until release. But I figure throwing a couple new belles in the mix could breathe a little more life into the remaining fandom. They could be used as notes from the devs. “The writing team’s favorite and why” the next could be the art team’s favorite and why, etc.

    Been reading through the old updates, and was wondering if we could maybe get say a European or Asian perspective on the first days of the Morganas and Belles in an update. There's a snippit of the European side in 139 where it goes over the American side of things, but a little more wouldn't hurt.

    I understand the importance of cordiality in customer service, but I feel I must voice the concerns of many on the discord, which I fear is the entire base of the few supporters you seem to have remaining at this point. The release is no longer something to be discussed with laughs and cheeky banter. That was amusing 2 years ago, when we were all thinking it was getting close. But Being told “It’s definitely close this time!” since 2016 has certainly soured the sentiment. I believe it would be less frustrating for the 20 or so people who still actively follow the development of this game if you would kindly stop using emotes and “haha” when replying to honest and rather concerned questions. It’s frankly alienating and at this point, borderline condescending and rude. I understand that your tongue is tied for us Legate, but at the very least, pass my unmitigated sentiments to the entire team so they may understand at least partially the frustration of 4 years of almost literally laughing at every attempt to gauge the time we must anxiously wait for a snippet of actual help.

    In vouru's defense I myself only start reading the first book in a series of fantasy novels after the second book has been published. However that has left me trapped in a cliffhangar for a decade plenty of times in my life anyways, with things like wheel of time, game of thrones, patrick roftfuss, etc. IMO year1 is actually a complete story. Sort of like the star wars trilogy is a complete story and the 2nd and 3rd trilogies actually didn't do pretty much anything at all to enhance the original star wars trilogy's story. (I liked the clone wars and the reboot trilogy both just fine, they were just separate stories, that was supposed to be my point, but I realized my sentence might've made me seem like a hater). So in that sense y1 is like the original dragonlance trilogy or some such and y2 is all the other dragonlance trilogies that had separate plots entirely. (And again here, the twins trilogy is really awesome imo, even though the most famous is the original trilogy in DL, again separate stories.). In other words your point almost makes sense on the surface, except that a) stealing is bad and b) actually wait no your point doesn't even make sense.

    When the writing was done 5 years ago I wonder what hold off the release for the last 5 years. Maybe the Legate want to say something on this ^^

    I updated SL Citys new club. Direct matches: Kaga 1-1 Takao INPF 1: Hood gets stopped in her tracks after her glorious start and Chiyoda uses her chance and sails right past her and take the top spot. Belfast closes up to Hood and takes 3rd place, with which she's well acquainted from last season. Contes ladies take a break for a month. Tenryuu, Arizona and LMP take advantage of that, while Moskva and Kumano fail to do so. The (virtual) midfield is a bit moving, with Wichita and Leni winning each, Kongou getting at least 1 point, but Augusta failing to score any points in two matches. Verdun still has nothing to show for it and remains at the bottom. INPF 2: The two leading kamimaru, Kaga and Takao clashed this week in an indecisive match. Both also didn't win their second matches, but Kaga got at least one point, getting her right behind Takao now. Nevada also joins in the merry one pointer reign, giving Saguenay the opportunity she needs to surpass Nevada and place her on par with Kaga. (Despite losing the Canada derby btw.) Also Exeter scores 4 points, getting her into striking range for the top 3. Canarias opens the midfield by scoring 3 points, while her pursuers Kitakami, DUnkerque, PK and Bearn all fail to score. So they get handed down a few ranks after Scharnhorst and Köln start with a win into the new season and Nagato scores at least one point. (Note I switched Köln from female to male team, see in her team entry above) Gneisenau and Nürnberg on the other hand lost and thus join Pola and Aoba at the bottom of the table.

    Direct matches: Moskva 1-0 Leningrad Kumano 1-1 Kongou Nevada 2-1 Arizona Nagato 1-3 Kaga INPF 1: And INPF 1 comes out of the garage with a sensational defeat of current champion Leningrad at the hands of Moskva! That gives Moskva 4 points as a start and Leni has to deal with only 1 point. Meanwhile vice-champion Conte gets a clean 6/6 start. Kumano finally got company in the Nadeshiko League and her duel with Kongou ends in a draw. And between the IJN kamimaru the tables are turned similar to the Soviet ones as Kumano gets 4 and Kongou only 2 points, reversing their positioning from last season. For now. Belfast has already three matches under her belt, from which she got 6 points at least. Wichita ran out of luck, because she only got 2 points from 4 matches. Atlanta also got 2 points, but only 3 matches. LMP got 3 points, three more than Verdun got from her only match yet. Tenryuu might be unbeaten with 5/9 points, but Chiyoda has the better overall start for now with 9/12 points. While Arizona lost her cross table duel (how embarrassing), she made up for it with a win in the second match she got. The last, but certainly not least, our lady Hood manages to score a perfect 9/9 series and takes the table lead with the better points-to-matches ratio over Chiyoda. Some Walküren will only later join, but none will not play as far as I can tell. Over the course of September SLC, Houston and AGS should join, Algier in November and Perth in December. INPF 2: Saguenay starts her first season in the lower house with a respectable 6/9 booty. Köln continued where she left off last season: losing. Same goes for Pola. Exeter had a mixed start with 3/6 points. Dunkerque also has to wake up again as she scored 2/6. Nevada on the other hand had a perfect little start with 2 wins in two matches, one of them against 1st division Walküre Arizona. Hopefully for her fans this gives her energy for the whole season. Bearn scored 1/3 so on average not better than her compatriot. Aoba disappointed with her new club and lost both league matches she had. Canarias lost to herself and another island, but won against the continental competitor, so she got at least something to show for. Kaga scored solid seven points, three of those against Nagato, who herself only managed to score 1/9 points. P-K- was probably tired again and only managed to score 2/6 points in her two matches. Takao takes the lead with a clean sheet after 3 matches and the resulting 9 points and Kitakami starts the season at least not on last position, with one win in three matches. The Kriegsmarine will join only later this month and Axum probably only in December.

    If you like something, then you ought to support it. The devs haven't abandoned Y2. They are just a fairly small team, working on a project that is quite enormous in scope. I think that the team have come upon a lot of unforseen obstacles. Over the years, despite the team's secrecy, bits and pieces have emerged which show that the team have been working toward Y2's completion. I would wager that Y2 is about 95% done at this time, with a few details still needed to be implemented, and lots of polish and bug fixing remaining.

    there 2 reasons to it in my opinion: 1) Revision is about the most useful magic in Y1 2) You most likely be in the positive with 2 of the most annoying characters in the game.

    In pamela's adventure, it is actually the player that casts that particular spell, on that particular path, at cobo's reccomendation. That particular adventure step it feels as though he found it in one of his skulk sessions, but didn't have the nerve to actually use it himself. Casually passing it to the player in hopes of seeing it without having to actually cast it.

    So for the final results, I will give each Walküre "theoretical points" based on her last ten matches. Her average points for her last 10 matches will be distributed to the maximum of 50 matches Conte did in INPF 1 and 48 matches Exeter performed in INPF 2. I kept the "RawRank", so everyone can see just how shaken the board got in some cases. So the matches for all Walküren will be 50 and 48 respectively. The first Walküre on the INPF 1 table will be declared champion. The three bottom Walküren of INPF 1 will relegate to INPF next season. The top three Walküren of INPF 2 will be promoted to INPF 1. The final tables, with modifier shown are: INPF 1: This means Leningrad is Champion of the 2019/20 INPF League season. Saguenay, Köln and Pola will be relegated to INPF 2. INPF 2: So promotions go out to Admiral Graf Spee, Arizona and Hood, while Kitakami truly is the lowest ranking team of them all. I will be back with a modified and updated league for season 20/21 on September 7th. Hopefully.

    After I've succeeded in making Germany (and me) a bit less liked on discord, for good reasons, I really should elaborate on these two parts. Especially after I decided in late May to drop the act and be nice again. But so much to do, so little time..... First off: The critique I formulated truly is the only negative stuff I could find. Some stuff is even pulled out of the text by hairs. Me exempting two whole parts in general from all the negativity and the sea fight completely just shows in how much trouble I was. I only did it btw because Mr. Wells kept asking for any sort of review. You all (on discord) could've prevented this, as I publicly announced my act. I just wanted to fulfil his request, because no one else did. If it got you into emotional trouble over my exaggerated criticism (some might call it a bluff), my sincerest apologies. I assume otherwise you got the memo as well. Your entry is really nice. You hit me as a reader without "warning" and immediately I got the urge to find out more about her. Adding a Turkish Captain into the mix is also a nice tone and seriously a character challenge for your protagonist and his lancer. Excellent writing there. And despite me saying otherwise: It is plausible. I could only construct the "forced in" negative concept, because what I like with the sudden appearance and all, other reader actually might feel irritated. And my Turkish is extremely limited. But I checked over it. If there had been any major flaw I would've hanged you for it. As you might've noticed I exempted the fight completely out of my response. Guess, because it is a thrilling read and you had the advantage of being in a scene you could basically do whatever the frak you wanted. Trust me I tried to pin you on something there, but it was so good and so enclosed in total (believable) fiction..... no chance. And I had the ambition to give at least plausible negativity, so a defence would've taken at least some effort. Completely baseless BS would've maybe blown my act. And tbh I really like Manc after that fight. The third part, in Portugal, is a nice epilogue to the drama which happened in act one and two. The heroes (all of them) get to cool down, again your protagonist faces a challenge, but one the reader knows will not kill him. And seeing the protagonist "out of his water" quite literally is always good for delight. And you tread the line between "delight" and "silly comic relief" very well. Since you seem to have laid out your captain as a sincere character and leave the little "light hearted" stuff you put in to more lively characters like Manc this was basically him "going in" without any backup. And it was lovely. You took the scene seriously and handled it nicely. Two things though: The Canarias + Swiss Captain question really bugs me, but in a good way. Dory is a puritan t***, for reasons I stated above and uphold here. But that's not your problem as a writer, but my problem as a reader for not liking her. So yeah. It is not only a nice, but an excellent read. Well done Wells.

    One more question to fight the good the fight against lazarus’s spotlight, and speaking of spotlights, we are aware already that belles are to a certain degree, media personalities. Do their home countries choose which belles become highlighted in the media, does the INPF have a say, or do belles tend to choose for themselves? I know it’s not difficult to make a capital ship like hood or Kongou famous, but what if a destroyer like Stewart wanted to be the face of the fighting fleet back home? Does she get a say or would she be undermined for a more powerful ship like Nevada to carry the banner?
  21. 1 point
    Because I haven’t done this in a while, I’ll just think of a lore question right now to push Laz out of the spotlight.😉 Often ships are given reporting names in the papers, which allow the news to publish exploits without breaking secrecy or pissing off the military. How much of a say do the belles have in their own reporting names? Do the papers pick for them and hope they don’t suffer the wrath of a warship misnamed? Also in regards to names, sometimes in the interest of secrecy, ships operating with other countries (specifically US ships operating with Britain in the early war, and vice versa) were given fake names to hide their true home country. Considering how belles seem to have an innate connection to their actual namesake, how much would USS Robin take on a connection to that name?

    I have to concur with my colleague Pac. I'm glad BCS is going to be here. I'm just not sure how many of us will be left. I know I will. I know Pac will. Dr. Y, and a select few others, but we're the most die hard of the die hard, and even we're starting to suffer morale wise. I can only imagine how harrowing it is on the studio end. We can all hang alone or we can all hang together. Without the discord, which is very much us backers hanging together, and has itself been suffering a slow, but steady stream of casualties over the last two years... well. I'd still be in. But again I'm not representative. On some level I understand not wanting to disappoint everyone. I get it. I really do. I've bought in entirely, I have a personal stake in this game going off like the DM-2 launch. At the same time... I think it's okay to let us in a little bit. We've stuck with you for four years now. A peek under the hood, no matter how messy the engine compartment is presently, is not going to scare anyone away. But literally what you just said in the last post is enough if presented officially! "We're doing pre-alpha testing, here's what we can do in that build, blah blah, lame that progress gets wiped at the end of the week. Things are going better than not, everyone's really tired and putting a lot of heart into this but we're committed to see this though to the degree of quality or better than we promised." That's the type of thing people are asking for. It doesn't need to be grand gestures, sweeping promises or wide scale anything. Just... "Hey we're hereish."

    I've never seen Sima in that bad of a light. I mean, sure, in terms of people I'd be comfortable turning my back against Sima is right up there with von Rupprecht and the groudskeeper suspected to be Stryker (who's namesake, funnily enough, ended up being the most straight-shot Lawful Good character I think I've ever come up with in my torturous journey through Etrian Odyssey), but beyond that I've always seen Sima as someone with a conscious. One that's a bit looser than most people have, perhaps, but someone who'd stop short of mass-murder when alternatives are on the table.

    If A Summons to the Great Gate is any indication she probably does. Reitz doesn't seem like the kind of person who'd be able to keep a secret from Sima, at any rate.

    You're probably missing a Pheme. You need to have learned all of a spell's Phemes before you can cast it, which can require you to jump through some hoops. For The Familiar's Gift your best bet is to clean out the Field Medicine subskill (Empower is Field Medicine 8, which will pick up Blood on the way if you don't have it). For Cleanse and Remake you're missing either Righteousness (Ethics 1 is the easiest source, assuming you've got the subskill unlocked) or Beseech (Prayer 5 should be available if you're going for C&R).

    I added Хьюстон Direct matches: none INPF1: Almost all teams left points on the field, with Algerie and returnee Kongou as exceptions. While Kongou climbed in front of Perth and Augusta that way, Algerie wasn't so lucky and Moskva made 4 points and thus got in front of her. In the pretty broad danger zone (Kumano and below) duds were had left and right with the notable exception of returnee Lexington. She scored 3 points. I also finally applied the secondary sort of fewer matches = better, so those 3 points catapulted her right out of the relegation zone. INPF2: The top 4 Walküren all went flawless, but Hood and Exeter again scored twice. so the only hope is the cropping at the end of the season will draw them closer. I still haven't decided how to manage the vast differences in matches at the end of the season. There were also a lot of draws this matchday in the 2nd division. The whole Kriegsmarine i.e. Axum managed to use her point to push past Kaga, making the dormant Walküren now the end of the table entirely. Apart from that nothing changed at all. Still dormant Walküren: SL City, Kumano and Tenryuu in INPF 1 (3 out of 20) Kaga, Nagato, Aoba, Takao, Nevada and Kitakami in INPF 2 (6 out of 18)

    I added Saguenay and Kitakami, finishing all INPF2 teams. Direct Matches: Parishkaya Kommuna 1-2 Béarn INPF 1: Clear winners of the matchday are the Soviets. Leni and Moskva crushed the opposition and are the only two Walküren with more than 3 points. Getting Leni up into the top 3 again. There were also a looot of postponed or canceled matches for the ladies, so 0 points doesn't mean defeat. Except you're Conte! Yes, the Italian lady stumbled, ending her latest 7 win streak. Belfast also got defeated. In a nice change of things our two bottom Walküren, Pola and (back in action and honorary soviet) Houston won each once. Pushing Lexington to the very bottom. And if you dislike Canadians: Saquenay lost twice. Next week I eye Kongou and Lady Lex to rejoin. INPF 2: The Top 4 all won, so no change at the top. However Béarn managed to prevent P-K from scoring. And Canarias scored 3. So P-K now has Canarias breathing down her neck. As a little side note: All three french clubbed Walküren in 2nd Division have very strong French 3rd division teams. Ironically the table leader, Dunkerque is the worst of them in INPF2. But maybe not for long. Scharnhorst equals the core with her sister, but apart from that there is no change on the table for today. Still dormant Walküren: Kongou, SL City, Kumano, Tenryuu and Lexington in INPF 1 (5 out of 20) Kaga, Nagato, Aoba, Takao, Nevada and Kitakami in INPF 2 (6 out of 18)

    I believe those first two questions were actually explained in the update... the latter is a good question though. Would a mk 14 torpedo fired by belles not have to worry about a 70% dud rate and ridiculously high chance of circular runs? On that matter, were a belle like Hood to acquire a different gun, say Nagato’s 405mm guns... would she have to rely on resupply from Japan or is she capable of hypothetically firing more easily acquired british 16” shells from the gun?

    That'll likely be the case with the adventure as written, the problem is that I'd rather not deny such PCs access to the adventure because they chose to be a vegetarian during character creation. It's a positive background, not a negative one, so picking it should be rewarded, not punished. Present the player with an otherwise non-obstacle because they have to stick to their principles, acceptable, but outright denying them access to an adventure not so much. Of course having a separate adventure for such a PC, for one singular background, is a lot of effort spend typing and thinking. Rest assured that the full extent to which vegetarians would object to this particular adventure goes all the way to stage...13, literally to the very end of it. So that's a lot that'd have to be redone and checked.

    The Lion Seeking Fish, stage 2: This adventure is indeed not going to comply with students who have the Vegetarian background, FYI.

    Here we go again after another national team break. In which btw all European INPF League countries and I believe even "misplaced" ships like Pola (today in Croatia) qualified for the Euro-Cup next year. Yay! (Correct me if I'm wrong) But on to the league. Direct matches: INPF1: As expected most dormant ships loose at least one position or will soon. While the top remains de facto unmoved, Belfast did not excel the best she could and Algerie looks farther back than she is, since she is also 4 matches short of the others at the top. At the bottom of the table Köln and Tenryuu managed to score for a change, so they climb a little, but everyone below Verdun is in severe danger of relegation. But then the season will only reach half time, when the other Japanese ships and their teams fall dormant in December. So all can change. INPF2: Good news: Axum should be game by now. Bad news: I might not know until December, because I found a way to follow, but they update with a small delay of a week or two... Anticipation rising. For the already competing ships ...WTF Exeter! 4 matches! You're supposed to be a third league team! And what a run! Damn.....see you then Graf Spee. Now Spee probably regrets losing Copa Libertadores to a Brasilian team double. Over all the top half of the table did quite well for themselves. The lower half not so much. Nagato and Kitakami failed to score completely. Kitakami will fight on for two matches, but with little hope. Her team will drop from J3 league to JFL, but since that's a national league and easy to follow she will also rejoin us next year. So if you like Kitakami, get out your tissues. Scharnhort dropped quite a bit, but will probably correct that soon, since she is now stuck directly behind a bunch of dormant ships. New Dormant: Nagato, Kaga, Aoba and Takao since J2 has ended. Aoba before Kaga ended up pretty much in the middle and Nagato below. Tako was nearly relegated, but they'll all stay in J2 and will come back in spring. Curiously only J2, but not J1 or J3 ended yet.

    @Schwarzbart Thank ye for the reply. Game looks fun though I’m already struggling to figure out what to do my first go through. Already want to do all the classes! If I was a real mage trainee, my head would have exploded by now simply cause I’d have to not do some things. (Only Magic Schools do I go full Hermione Granger.) I am also aware of Y2 not being out yet via research, yes. Sad but it looks like it’s being worked on at least. Will be happy to simply enjoy what I can! Thank you again! @Legate of Mineta *bows before you* Thank you for the warm welcome. I look forward to enjoying the world you helped shape. @Rhialto Thank you for the link. I have read and appreciate the food for thought you’ve given. Much appreciated! Always nice to see another resident writer as well, as I’ve spied your other works too.

    So here we go again. Some teams went dormant. I coloured them Orange. Direct matches: None. But just theoretically..... in a naval duel Tenryuu vs Chiyoda, who would probably win? INPF1: Conte di Cavour slipped a little in her winning streak, but got 3 points from the Derby della Mole. Forza! The table leadership equaled its match scores and it turns out, La Signora is still comfortably leading by 6 points before Leni and Bell who are equal in points as well. In the forseeable future no other Walküre will be able to join them up there. At the bottom no one really escaped, but Köln is now in serious trouble after a serious losing streak. Also the USN fans might stock up their pills..... dormant team might get dumped down easily and the new season only starts in late February. Perth did it! She surpassed Kitakami (INPF2) as worst ship, by securing her first victory against @Wellington99 (Wellington Phoenix). All US Navy ships are now dormant, since their teams have been eliminated before the final match of their league. Same goes for Kumano as her team is done with this years season. The current match counter would be at 10 atm. INPF2: The leading ship, Arizona went dormant, since her teams season is done for now. Same goes for Nevada.... so Nevada fans might need to get some tranquilizers, in case I open a third league table before February. So now Exeter and Spee will try to race past Arizona as far as they can until Arizona rejoins in spring. While at the bottom Kitakami is hopeless, Aoba, Takao and Nürnberg are making themselves comfortable in front of her. If this goes on, I seriously doubt Kitakami can get past dormant Nevada..... And good news for Axum. She won't get eliminated!!

    I'd say +2, maybe +1 and +1 Poisons (describe it as Pelia unintentionally teaching that through "here's how you don't do this process, or else you end up with this" if necessary) since Poisons is such a hard skill to learn relative to Alchemical Tools/Analyse/Chemistry. Of course who knows whether that'll still be the case in Y2, certainly not me .

It'll inevitably be part of the background in this case, and that's perfectly fine, but I can't really imagine any sort of plot or character focussed on that that'll manage to elevate him/herself above the level of a Saturday morning cartoon villain. I'd like to have a bit more depth than that. Whether I can manage to, completely separate question, but I'd like to at least try.

    If anyone noted, there was a break in the calendar, so I could rest a week. 🤔 But I could start a INPF nations ranking..... or not. Direct matches this week were: Augusta 1-0 Lexington (no Deja Vu, but the Yanks have started their playoff phase and by coincidence Augusta and Lex had the last conference match and the first play-off match against each other. Since its a one leg pla-off, LEX is done for this year.) Nagato 1-0 Aoba I added Algérie and Scharnhorst in the club descriptions. INPF1 La bella d'Italia cruises on at the top, while beneath her, Belfast made a three victory in a row stroke and forced her way back on second. Forced, because she has one match more than the Ladys around her and in theory even Augusta, Kongou and Algérie can get past her. For the same reasons Lexi is out for now, some of the Northern American Walküren didn't gain anything. Their league finishes off and they're done until the new season starts in February again. So US fans need a bit of nerves since their Ladys will be falling a bit soon. I predict none of them will be Winter champion. The most "busy" Walküren were Köln and Kumano, our women team ships. Köln lost two consecutive matches and Kumano won two consecutive matches. Which sent Köln down quite a bit, but Kumano into a very safe place from her perilousstate last week. Oh and Perth scored for the first time. INPF2 Arizona let AGS come even closer and Exeter forced herself right behind the two. It mirrors a it Belfasts tour de force with the same problem. The only other ship keeping contact to the leading group is Bearn, because Hood had a terrible time with two lost matches. Other big losers are Canarias, she lost the most places and Kitakami also gained zero out of two matches and remains on the last place with actual matches. Axum gets until November, if she has no matches by November 15th I can find, she's out for now.

    After Sept. 1 1939 eh? >:3 Let's see... -Enterprise and Yorktown kind HAVE TO be included... Two of the more famous USN carriers... Hornet as well, maybe with her carrying a model of a B-25 bomber with her as a reminder of the Doolittle raid... -One I really want to see is Graf Zeppelin~ She might be tough to consider as 'completed', but she was technically launched by the time the war started, and would have been operationally finished by mid-1940... (Damn you Germany for all those production delays/gear rerouting!!) -I don't really know of many British/Polish/Italian/Turkish/Russian ships to add also... I'm trying to keep it to actually built designs that really aren't copies of other nations ships... I'm sure England's later battleship/carrier designs will make it in! -Please tell me HMS Campbeltown will be around~ Would love to hear her thoughts on having been used as a massive ship-bomb to destroy the gates at the Normandie dry dock... (Her original name prior to RN service was USS Buchanan~ Buchanan would be around already, since she was operating since 1919) -The soviet submarine S-13 would be an interesting one, simply because of her involvement in the "largest loss of life in a single ship sinking"... She was commissioned in 1941, so I think she fits into that year category, despite her launch in 1939... I can't think of any other notable ships... But, I know these few have some interesting/historic stories~ (I'm also crap at thinking of art designs... Feel free to come up with what any of these possible Belles would wear, since the best I can think of is military uniforms of their country with a few personal additions) (Also, I know that Enterprise/Yorktown were around pre-Sept. 1939, but we haven't seen/heard anything about them~)
