General Victory Belles Questions Thread

Recommended Posts

Signal lamps were used in formation sailing, although the Americans used TBS. Radio, otherwise, although that had it's own risks, of course.

 

Belles, when they have a close relationship, can sense other Belles similar to how they can sense Morgana. It's not the same as telepathic communication, but they can understand something of the Belle's situation and feeling. Distance isn't a factor for this type of communication.

 

Ok, so if a Belle wanted to communicate to another Belle, it would be over radio/signal lamps/signal flags? Do they have their own built in radio into their rigs?

Likely they would, or they might use the ship's radio. Some might conceivably have a radio set right in their gear, as you suggest, too.

 

Alright, that makes good sense

Here's a question, though I'm not sure if it was answered previously or not. Do ships that were scuttled have death dates, or do they have to have died in combat?

Well shit. I was hoping I wouldn't have to worry about that for my precious Graf Spee.

I have a question. If the Belles are essentially manifestations of the spirit of the ship are they physical or apparitions? If physically, can they fight themselves in close combat? If not, will dating them cause them to fully manifest?

They can be apparitions or entirely physical, and can change between forms as they please. Most prefer constantly being physical, however.

 

They can fight in close combat, and are terrors. They shrug off most normal damage, and are essentially immune to gunfire. The only thing capable of standing up to a Belle in '39 is a Morgana...

Alright then. That works for me and an idea I was toying with in my head. Are the Morgana ships or being on ships like Belles?

Yes; they appear on their ships, seemingly as Belles do.

 

Out-freaking-standing. Thanks Legate.

-gasp- Does that mean in the later years not only will we have to contend with Morganas, we might have to fight factions of the government that believe Belles are destructive and created weapons capable of harming Belles and Morganas? Nothings better than a little political intrigue and a little civil war!

 

This is the kinda thing that drew me ridiculously into Sins of a Solar Empire:Rebellion...

1 September 1939 the odds are pretty good you do not yet have radar. Phew! :)

And that is why the Kriegsmarine had Wolfpack(Rudeltaktik), even if you cant see them if you have enough numbers you are bound to hit something!

Has it been confirmed at all what class of ship the Corruption-class are? Right now the prevailing scuttlebutt is that she is either a light cruiser or destroyer

It's not confirmed, I don't think, but I can do that now: she's a Destroyer. :)

 

Nice, that's really good to know (for writing reasons)
