Update 59: Duca D'Aosta

Recommended Posts

She's super cute!

 

But how did she get down that ship funnel?

 

Von beat me to it, but I had assumed the weird furry boots were related to a coat-of-arms animal for the (D')Aosta family.

The Dukes of Aosta were a cadet branch of the House of Savoy. Their coat of arms was a mere variant of that of the latter.

Ehm... no. That is the coat of arms of the city of Aosta.

 

The coat of arms of the House of Savoia-Aosta is this:

I don't think that it's a merely Italian custom to have cities with a coat of arms, and noble houses that hold a title after the city with different coat of arms.

Many british countries/provinces/cities/ships/other things have a coat of arms, He's Bermuda's:

Am I the only one seeing that...whatever that's supposed to be wearing a tentacle beard on a string?

 

You've watched the Pirates of the Caribbean movies too many times... ;)

Never watched anything PotC related except for their (unbelievably out of place) world in Kingdom Hearts II, which I don't recall having tentacle beards on strings. I do recall finding Peter Pan in a chest, but not tentacle beards on strings.

That's a lion Metis, not a leopard with a fake Cthulhu beard.

 

As for D'Aosta, I like her personality but her posture is a little off-putting. I like my lionesses rampant, not dormant.

I'm Asian...so I'm not very European-studied. That being said, I'm probably going to be Regia Marina once the game goes live :D.

I like her for being anti-fascitic.

And good mannered.

Since I intend to build my fleet by character, not by stats, she's a keeper. Unlike a certain DD from the RM.....

@W99:
Listen loyalist colonist*: Don't try to intimidate me. Won't work. And if that was a real question, please be more specific. At the moment my answer would be: I wrote a reply to this topic and I'm not (yet) yer mate, Bürschchen.

 

@Fif:

Oversimplified, but yes.

Well..... technically you ARE a colonist then?

 

And i meant the Regia Nave, not the Kings most respected Royal Navy. But you are right. It should be RM, not RN in this case. I correct it.
