  1. Etc.) I drained the coffee, picked up the gun, and earned my $200 back. or alternatively I had a lot of fun reading through this one. Sportsball isn't my strong suit, but imagining the story the cap was telling is leading to endless fun.
  2. I would add a couple more to the CCCP and USA, Korky. USA: San Francisco, San Diego and Seattle are well-developed american Naval bases on the continental West Coast. Nothing saying we can't have more than two bases for a nation, where possible or necessary, correct? Edit: More info after a little research: San Diego and Seattle are up and running in time, but Hunters Point base in San Francisco wasn't actually purchased or developed until 1940, so that one will have to wait a little. However, San Diego was a major, MAJOR repair port, and NAS Seattle was well developed and busy. Speaking of necessary, your choices for the CCCP left the Baltic out, which was where the Soviets kept a pretty big chunk of their navy. so, in CCCP: St. Petersburg, for the Baltic, and Murmansk in the Arctic.
  3. You make a good point, even if it is too long to properly quote. Umbubu! Fetch my vote number 5 instead!
  4. 3 problems with that plan: 1) the 3 hours could be spent actually preparing. Get to a different ship. Set traps. Find a better weapon. In addition to further post against those rooting for option 5, The knife may not be able to hurt the belles, but I don't believe a paintball gun would change their hunt either, and a knife is useful in other ways. 2) One of them may very well be guarding that comm room that your precious wireless is in. Also, good luck convincing any belles to go up against Scharn and Nubian in a hunting game, who would be in the area and could arrive in less than 3 hours. Naval travel takes time, and there's a war on. No doubt the ugly sister has already made provisions and alerted all operating forces nearby not to interfere, if they don't already have some task to occupy them. And isn't calling in reinforcements dishonorable and cheating? 3) Do you think Scharn, or either of the other belles, for that matter, care about human disease? They are spirits of steel and magic, I do not think we are contagious to them. On that line, do you think a quarantine sign would stop Scharn from barging in and shooting everyone in the room on principle?
  5. See, Option 4 seems like the most "begging" option of them all to me. You don't think you can win the game, so you've resorted to bribery. On the topic of Option 5, on the other hand, I agree with you. That would tend to lead to a firefight, which might leave you trapped in one place long enough to get tagged. I'll actually vote option 8. It's got a good amount of sass, and it's just cocky enough to imply that I can both win and enjoy playing. This may have the added side effect of making the belles more angry and thus making our game more challenging, or at the very least, enthusiastic.

    You’re right, Texas is a battleship! I did say I was hesitant to display favoritism of the cruisers, did I not? But, if it must come from a cruiser, perhaps Houston would be a good advisor. In any case, it’s still Boise’s department, so she should at least have a say in which beasties they round up and chomp on, even if Houston gets the challenge of figuring out how to cook what she brings. It’ll be an interesting exercise in improvisation for everyone!

    Wow...Great fluff, as usual! Unfortunately, I can’t get behind any of these options....Never been a fan of Seafood or Spam, and Favoring certain belles is bound to cause trouble. So I won’t! Option 7: I’ve found Texas has one of the greatest barbecue traditions in American history. Go ask her for some pointers.
  8. It's here, once again! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/blackchickenstudios/victory-belles/posts/2178554?ref=backer_project_update Option 3, Пожалуйста
  9. "...beyond that is unknown." That is why I ask, Lazarus. I believe at the very least the first half of this is worth getting an answer from the devs on, no? We know they can communicate with themselves, with other belles, and to an extent, have a supernatural connection with Morgana. But, we have no information on their ability to communicate with mundane vessels.
  10. A couple things I read recently got me thinking, and I came up with a question I don't think has been asked here or in the general question thread. Can Belles communicate with Non-belle ships? Even though the Non-belle ships obviously can't communicate with people, do the ships have their own special way of passing information? For example, A Belle destroyer is moored 200 yds from a cruise ship. The captain and crew of the destroyer would not, under normal circumstances, go and talk to the crew and passengers of the cruise ship. It would be a breach of security! In this case, the Destroyer herself goes and starts chatting with the cruise ship, and even though the cruise ship has no belle, she's still got the spirit every ship has, and she's still somewhat aware. She knows submarines were spotted 2 days before, on her normal passage between the US and Britain. The Destroyer can then go into her next patrol with this information at hand, which helps explain how belles can know more than their commanders and crew, and helps them survive. So to repeat, could this happen? Can the belles speak to non-belle ships? As a side note which arises from the same question, we've only seen warships with belles, with the loose connector being HMS Rawalpindi. So, to expand, can non-warships, even completely unarmed ships, manifest belles as well, so long as they hold the necessary fighting spirit? It doesn't particularly matter who answers this, but maybe a hint from the connector herself, Rawalpindi, would be appropriate!
  11. Very tempted to #2, but bandwagoning onto #3. Henley might actually be useful.
  12. Option 1! I never picked Option 2 for update 96, but I'm thinking I should have.....Ah well. The Commissars will find a booby-trapped kettle nonetheless! More proof!

    KS Update 96

    I can't decide! stay on topic, stay on topic......... bah! who am I kidding? Option 1! The commissars will find all contraband within the hour!
  14. Pacific war fleets! Nagato, Hiryu, Fubuki, Nenohi, Kumano, Aoba, I-8 vs. Lexington, Mississippi, Swayback maru, Nawlins, Boise, Mahan, and Nautilus! Mostly because this seems like an air battles test example, which means using the two nations who did everything they could to perfect and focus on carriers and their development. I would have done full Battle of Midway fleets, but I'm left at something of a lack of revealed belles to work with! P.S. regarding the most recent update: Option 2! Lovely ladies and hangovers! I love every passing update which cements my need to have a hardworking communist maid in my flag position!
