    Update #181

    From DavidZet at DeviantArt. Link: https://www.deviantart.com/davidzet/art/Victory-Belles-Art-Book-Page-608718914 Seems to have been a fan attempt at an art book from the early years. Actually found it by accident.

    Update #181

    Found it! Yup, she went aboard with different art! Can't wait for see the full picture.
  5. I need to give a few corrections and updates regarding NRP Sagres' lore. Henry the Navigator was born in O'Porto (yes, my hometown - they've preserved their home and it remain a cultural exhibition space to this day) and learned his trade in the Sagres Nautical School (right at the "chin" of our country's face that gazes at the Atlantic). The name is indeed a traditional heritage passed on by the main school ship of the Portuguese Naval School, where the most important exams and rites of passage take place. While I heard a lot about it, I never had the chance to go aboard. Besides the records already stated by Käpt'n Korky, the ship has also participated in two major Portuguese celebrations: in 1992, she participated in the Columbus boat race, part of the 450 years' celebration of the Portuguese's Arrival on Japan in 1993. Later on, she visited Brasil during the 500 years' celebration of the Discovery of Brasil in 2000. As for major events, the ship departed for her third trip around the world in January 10th, 1910. The trip took her to 29 distant locations before completing her journey on December 23rd of the same year, It was her greatest trip to date, opening her kind arms to over 300.000 visitors along the journey. In terms of honored awards, she was recieved as an honorary member of Portugal's Military Order of Our Knights of Lord Jesus Christ (in short, "Ordem Militar de Cristo") on March 12th of 2012 for her 50 years of service in the Marinha Portuguesa. Later on in 2017, October 24th, she recieved the medal of the Military Order Of Avis, the most ancient honorific award in our country, given only to those in military ranks that excelled beyond human effort and dedication.to the country. So, to put it short, she was well recieved within our community and given awards that only Portuguese men and women could recieve, so she's definately viewed as a Portuguese ship nowadays
  6. Hi ho! One vote for option 2, please.
  7. Link to the update. Captain Choices: 1: … I bet we could get that piano loaded into the catapult before they get back. 2: ...you don’t actually know how to play by ear, do you? 3: ...Kazoo players get a bum rap. Also, one last notice: expect a first Fleet Problem by October 26th. Schedule your calendar accordingly.
  8. Hi ho! I believe some of us are eager for the Monopoly reference. Henceforth,I'll place my vote on option 3.
  9. Well, I'd like to think in those cases beyond blueprint genealogy
  10. Hi ho! Hope you're all well today. I wanted to ask the Belles something a little... awkward, if I may. The notion of a Belle having an offspring, while both amazing and unsettling at the same time, is a bit impossible from the perspectives I've been gathering (unless miracles are involved, of course). So I wanted to approach the next, closest option related to the issue: adoption. Would it be possible/affordable for a Belle to have a vessel of a different family/country under her wing, combat-ready or not? Would they have a different care over between Belle-present ships and spirit-linked boats as a human would respectively treat an adopted child and an adopted animal? And how would Belles cope with differences in country or culture between them and their adopted protégés? My apologies if the question brings any... troubling feelings.
  11. Hi ho! While i'm also on board with the #1 option, #3 sounds so comical as well, and can be used as well, since both answers address different points from the conversation. Therefore, I vote on both. Kind of a bittersweet revelation for the Captain XD On a side note, do you know what that "german" exchange reminds me of?...
  12. Hi ho, everyone! I could swear that more than 10 Belles are being featured in this Special, 8 or more redacted to boot. From what I remember, we vote on support conversations that happen when the present Belles are part of the Captain's team. To think that we need all of them to reach this Summer Special... ...it's really special. As such, I cast my vote on knowing the crazy outcome of the Battle of Summer Snowballs as a neutral witness (also, the story team can use my naming suggestion if it fits their funny needs) to a battle between three sides. One vote for option 1 - let them have the battle as three separate factions while enjoying the cherry-flavored snowball. I know it features option 4 and 6 mashed in as well (5 instead of 4 if the Captain is not so neutral), but at that time they're asking for the captain's opinion, not his allegiance. Edit: We now know there is a silent Belle, who only speaks "..." (Redacted3). I wonder what others think of this,
  13. Hi ho! One vote for option 5, please. Why? Best not explaining. Reputations are at stake.
  14. Hi ho! I'd go for Option 11: "Mind if I test a gun before the hunt?" *reaches for a gun under the table* But since we're following the rules here, I'll go for option 5, since it's the only one that gives a proper explanation of the conversation's title. Also, in before...
  15. Hi ho! One more vote for Option 1, please. Hope that voting can still be done. Also, regarding the Battle Engine - patiently waiting for any feedback on the game's development, even if just evolved imagery.
  16. Hi ho! One vote for choice 3, please.
  17. Hi ho! Option 1 for me, please! I can't wait for the Captain to do a Don Quixote quote and accidentally tear one of the windmills' sails.
  18. Hi ho! First of all, something that I didn't mention in its first iteration: thanks, Mineta, for placing links as part of the opening thread, as it helped out my browsing a lot. Second, my vote goes to option 3. My reasoning is in the spoiler below.
  19. I'll say: I prefer the last variant the more due to the bubble coat on her - feels like she has just submerged in a very confident way. Though I think her torso looks shorter than intended, even with her pose in consideration. Nonetheless, an enjoyable drawing. 7/10 from me.
  20. Also, here's a dialogue that I wrote for choice #5. I hope you enjoy it! (Also, to Minetta and BCS: if you enjoy this dialogue and think it to be a good piece for the dialogue's continuation, you have my permission to use it. I know the authors would also have to be in agreement with this - I didn't want to disrespect their work, but I had a lot of fun and care in writing this part, probably the same they'd place on theirs, and hope that, if they agree with the perspective and effort, it could complement their work)
  21. Hi ho! Option #5 for me, please. Why so? Reasons in the spoiler.
  22. Hmm, thought of a joke regarding that: Q: Why weren't U-boats so cheery during WW2? A: Because "Under the Sea" came out on 1989.
