  1. Going for #3. I rather enjoy taking a bite out of Henley to assist the fleet as a whole. Plus the government really does pay quite a lot for all that food.
  2. In this thread I will post on the days that famous ships sank, which may help less informed captains to prepare and save their belles and the sailors on them. I believe there is no better start for it than today. Today marks the anniversary of the death of the Imperial Japanese Navy. On April 7th 1945, TF 58 launched 386 aircraft to intercept Operation Ten-Go. It was an overwhelming success. For the loss of 10 aircraft and 12 aviators, they sank the light cruiser Yahagi, the destroyers Isokaze, Hamakaze, Asashimo, and Kasumi (scuttled), and most famously, the Yamato. However, the Yamato would not go quietly. When she sank, one of her forward magazines detonated, resulting in an explosion that could reportedly be heard and seen in Kagoshima nearly 200 miles away. The smoke cloud reached over 6km into the air. This was the last major Japanese naval operation in the Pacific of WWII, and with it the Imperial Japanese Navy died. Also sunk on this day was the Nagara class Cruiser Isuzu, who was torpedoed in in the Java sea, and U-1195, a type VIIc U-boat who was sunk by depth charges in the English Channel. In 1943, USS Aaron Ward was bombed and sunk in Ironbottom sound, and U-644 was torpedoed and sunk west of Narvik. In 1944, U-856 was sunk by a combination of Depth charges, shelling, and ramming in the Atlantic Ocean. Today's deaths: Yahagi Isokaze Hamakaze Asashimo Kasumi Yamato Isuzu U-1195 Aaron Ward U-644 U-856
  3. Option one, please. No slick commentary from me this time.
  4. As her commanding officer, I believe it would be rather uncouth of me to order Orion to do such a thing. However, I am feeling in a rather uncouth mood today. I think I shall pick option #1, much as I wish to sate my curiosity on the third option.
  5. Since the Canadian pride thread is limiting, and the Minor Nations thread also fails to cover what I need, I have decided to make this. This is the thread where all you Nazis/Fascists/Japanese Imperialists1 can post your ideas for the game and the belles of these nations. So please come in and discuss Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, and Imperial Japan. I'm sure the game developers would love to hear your ideas and suggestions2. 1: This thread does not condone the ideological beliefs of said Nazis/Fascists/Japanese Imperialists, and is merely for the countries these ideas came from. 2: The Game Developers probably have a lot on their plate with making the game as they planned it, so don't be surprised if your suggestions don't make it to the final game.
  6. I think in terms of booby traps, an easily malfunctioning fountain pen, made as a replica of a rather important one... When you start writing it sprays ink the wrong way, and the thief is painted. I do enjoy the false journal entries idea. "Dear diary, Today I discovered that Surcouf has stolen something very important of mine. Tomorrow I shall ask her to return it, and if she doesn't I will have Espero steal it back for a reward."
  7. For me it is between option 1, 2 and 5. I believe Option 5 will just restart this whole set and give them an opportunity to redirect the conversation. Unfortunately, Option 1 only seems worth your while if it's not a bluff, and since the captain appeared to not notice their repetitive antics before they mentioned the contest, I fear he has yet to give that order to the crew. So both of those are out, leaving option 2. While it may be a bluff, watching their reaction will be highly amusing. I Vote option 2.
  8. That looks like some fun cavorting. And oh-so many beads for Maass. Oh how I wish I could have been there.
  9. 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.
  10. I am already Voting for Spee and Nagato. If there’s any room remaining in the vote, please add Diether Von Roeder. In other news, pilots always were hard to deal with...
  11. Korky how could you! I knew Germans were mean-spirited, but that was harsh. In the spirit of the thread though, I shall respond. Stronger than ever In Rio De La Plata My Heart never Sinks And since he mentioned his fan fiction, I shall continue on Welly’s with two of my own. Size is but a word The starry-eyed warriors Never to falter Always something new Life is a wonderful dance with an honest heart
  12. You wound me. Are my thoughts so shrouded in enigma that you cannot see where my heart lies? If I’m an open book, I believe you, sir, are illiterate.
  13. That's a lot of poetry. I think you can guess where my favorite is...
  14. Also 100% needed. I can't believe I wasn't the one to say that, considering how much I advocated for crests in the designs of the German capital ships while the interviews were taking place.
  15. Holy dear goddess on high I love this. There’s Really no words to adequately describe my elation. This image is just too damn good. Graf Spee is the purest and the best.
  16. Battle damage? Bos'n, get me my brown pants! I actually rather enjoy Le Triomphant, and I must say she's my favorite of the french girls. I'd normally vote #1, as I can actually sing the song myself, but what kind of nation puts "The blood of the impure will water our fields!" in a song. That's not really something that fits on a cheery radio show. Therefore, I must help the war effort by voting for option #2! And later I'll take a headcount of which of the belles bought them.
  17. I must say, I appreciate the answer to all three questions, but the last was of particular interest to me. Thank you, Twoheavens, for that gem. Their responses indicate that each belle gets their orders differently, but that fleet battles with belles can be incredibly efficient. The Captain of the Ship is a poor man indeed.
  18. I knew someone would point that out, and to that I counter; "How much do you want to judge belles in tight leotards doing epic feats of sports?"
  19. I need more Swayback Maru. On that note, I think a little fun isn't a problem, and there's only one belle with rudder issues, when clearly there are dozens of belles in the area. Therefore, I would like to vote Option 1.
  20. Sunken Ships on January 14th 1942 No. 44 - The G5-class motor torpedo boat was lost on this date. 1943 Narvalo - The Submarine was torpedoed and sunk in the Mediterranean Southeast of Malta by HMS Pakenham and a Beaufort aircraft of the RAF. 28 crew and 8 British POWs were lost. 1944 Ha-50 - The submarine was dragged under 155 miles Southeast of Tanegashima when her tow ship, Yamatsuru Maru was torpedoed and sunk by USS Seawolf.

  21. That's one of the several reasons I don't normally list the cargo ships.
  22. I have to agree with Option 2. Many great feuds have ended with a greater feast. I must chide our dear Captain for being so hesitant to engage Pola. She's adorable and deserves all the attention I can grant her. I show no fear in the face of excessive cuteness.
  23. 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

I was going to wait until we got to the place I left off last year, and restart it from there, but who knows, I'd have probably forgotten! Anyways, I'll try to pick these up when I can. I can't have you doing all the work.
