  1. Interesting update. I think my captains sidejob is the right idea. And U-29 should be careful, she just spilled some water on the SSs mills. A thing I remember her of not being fond of. And I'm glad she found a new hobby. Everyone should have at least one. Y'know, to ease the mind.
  2. Would never have guessed Mahan would mug Wichita one day. But I remember old conspiracy theories from a long, long time ago, when we theorised Mahans reappearance would mean beta would be imminent. But since we allegedly lack a dev update or two on the way to it.... let's see what the next two weeks will bring.
  3. Yeah, but who's counting? Witch made us watch seals as well.
  4. It not loading is interesting to say the least. That song should be well out of copyright. It's the 1932 German Version of the US song "Yes! We have no bananas!". So listen to that as comfort.
  5. Ignore the first second:
  6. In case anyone wants the complete reprint of Kapitän Mors adventures -and the first science fiction series of all time- in all its 165 episodes: 700 € and it is yours only until 05.05. That's 290 € off. It was all the rage in 1908-1912 and prohibited in 1916 by the military governour of Berlin! And a picture of the Weltenschiff. And whoever thinks, bah, Humbug, much too old. Care about another Sci-Fi legend?
  7. We already discussed your Eden mistake in private. I notice the fix. While the second and third part fit okay into your whole story, I'm a bit irritated by the sudden Turkish Virgin (by name at least) in the first part of the story. Your explanation is: So the yankii and the Anatolian captain have a yelling match - which in my head means yelling at each other on roughly equal terms. But the next sentence makes it look like the yankii was in the process of being humiliated. And the Limeys saved the yankii, but became drinking buddies with the Turk, for the yankii never to be mentioned again? Oh and she commands the RN Ostro... which was for what reasons in the vincitiny of Turkey? All in all that scene feels forced in. Dory is a bloody idk by all to me known European standards. She jumps on compliments even a German could pull? And next time please use this or comparable lists, if you employ known people in your plots. Or give at least a hint, why you dispose of the OCs. For INPF people this is obviously unnecessary, but you write "British ambassador", not "British INPF liasion". So you mean "INPF ambassador" (and you better do or why should you call a Português diplomat in his own country ambassador?)? But it obviously IS the proper ambassador to Portugal, since he answers back to Halifax. Also you can't have an ambassador to the INPF, except it has exterritorial status in its own rights by late 1940, which is a huge deliberation you're taking here for now. But the INPFs is explicitly a neutral, supernational force. So why should they turn down INPF requests? Especially with Morganas clearly in the waters? I totally get why they turned down a solely German request. Which btw implies there is an independent German Walküren fleet beside the German INPF forces, which also must exists as the continuing talk reveals. Why do they need our cooperation in the first place? And where is Mr. Pell? Okay. Why of all ships Canarias? What special kind of Franco loving fascist Swiss was able to get Canarias attention? Why not Velasco? Why the one Walküre that openly emits love and devotion for her Caudillo basically from the first moment we met her? Apart from that, appealing to the Bloco Ibérico is clever. But then "bringing it before the parliament" and saying they might allow this..... wasn't the parliament pretty much not in the position to decide such things in the Estado Novo? Who (formally) decided to give the US and UK bases on the Azores and Madeira in the 1940's? Parliament or Prime Minister? Apart from that, nice read I guess.
  8. My artist definitively needs more practice. I'm on it.
  9. Is it just me or is Belfast getting more vulgar? Sidenote: You'll have a hard time finding a German actually named Jerry, but a lot of Brits actually called Tommy. That's Tokubetsu Keisatsutai for you, island monkey! On the one hand it is preposterous to demand proof of a ship to be deutschblütig, on the other hand.... Nazis. Also I credit it to the fact, that Belfast is relaying the information, that said information is not really hieb- und stichfest. I guess they have made up a certain type of certificate for Belles, because it's hard to get an Ariernachweis (even a small one), if you're not born from lineage, but built. So I guess said Belle did not turn out very Aryan by definition of appearance. And thus she has or wants to get her stern under § 2 I RBG, but technically that would be a problem from the start, so I guess the legal vector to attack her Deutschtum is the BBG which asks for an Ariernachweis again, but she's a member/asset of the Wehrmacht and thus probably has soldier status, so she would fall under § 1 III WG, because she's a woman and that would require her to be a GERMAN woman so we're back in the RBG and that means we have to get into bloody details unknown until we know who she is and what casts the apparent shadow of doubt over her Deutschtum (appearance, creators, material?)..... but quite frankly it's a non-problem. If the top brass says she's German, she's German. That's actually the law. And even if she isn't, she's still owned by Germany and subject of the Führer. And as Nürnberg will happily confirm: Every German Walküre should have a legal status comparable to the defined one in the RBG. More interesting question: Do they have to take the oath? Yay, we captains are shiny beacons of hope. Well, well that Theseus thinking at the end is a bit cut short, if you keep in mind Walküren have memories of their former incarnations. So if you build a new ship from old material of the same heritage those memories should at least be so present as if they were the "old" ones to a point it becomes pointless to argue if the "new" Walküre is actually "new" or a transferred "old" one. A much clearer indication could and should be her physical appearance "before" and "after", which can naturally only occur after the 1st of September 1939 in this world. The most "fun" approach to this I can think of is taking parts and distributing them throughout the INPF and then building 7-XX ships with the same heritage in mind. And suddenly U-29s research gets a boost I guess. Kaga is right, oyasumi.
  10. Wichita = Mary Sue confirmed. Verdun is as grim as expected. I also miss a "Good, carry on option". I talked before about options and real options iirc. I will not repeat myself. Repetitio non placent. Please thank the team for the kind and caring words on my behalf, most honourable one. An regarding possible testers, if I consider posts in here and discord members over there.... we wouldn't even need a full Centurion to lead us. So a few is actually a few.
  11. She accepts both Fräulein und Hochgeboren. As I stated elsewhere: I'm very confident to be able to beat Ihro Hochgeboren in a round or 20 of Offiziersskat/Bauernskat. German children learn it to be prepared to learn proper Skat. I'm more and more convinced AGS might not be my go-to ship of choice to integrate into my Kriegsmarineflotte..... German check:
  12. Since almost all leagues involved are suspended over the Covid-19 pandemy until at the very least 22nd of March, don't expect any updates until mid-April.
  13. Direct Matches: Wichita 4-0 Houston Nürnberg 0-3 Scharnhorst INPF 1: Conte could distance herself, since Belfast lost. Belfast on the other hand slowly comes into range for Leni and LMP. *dun dun duuun* Otherwise no position changed except in the nether regions: Pola scored a decisive victory and jumps well above the danger zone, at least in places, if not in points. And Lady Lex used the wrecking of Houston by Wichita to leave last place. If your heart lies in the upper regions you might feel a slight bore. If it lies in the nether regions...... you probably need some meds to stay calm. INPF 2: Our 2nd division was.... unstable. Only Hood won in the promotionists group, bringing her up right behind Exeter. Arizona showed her old, lost strength and Scharnhorst sunk Nürnberg. Glorious victory for Gau VIII over XVI, making Scharnhorst the highest ranked Kriegsmarine ship on the table. Spee limped onto 3rd place, don't ask her about it. Canarias won as well and took 5th place away from P-K, but the midfield is as secure as it is hopeless to reach promotion ranks. Axum lost a bit embarrassing to a team literally called "Ethiopian Coffee"...... but at least she's still in the fight. Nevada won and can now start chewing up the IJN Walküren in front of her, who are completely helpless for now.
  14. Ha! Only ~60million incantations later! Ha! *catches his breath*
