  1. I dearly hope it wasn't a mistake. As our resident grand matriarch's chief huggler, I couldn't be happier with how Goeben was presented. In fact, I'm still in the afterglow of my fangasm.
  2. It's still a vote and not a fiat decision, but for what it's worth I am voting for Köln as New Orleans' partner in crime companion for Mardi Gras. :-)
  3. Soviet Russia goes back only 20 years in 1939. The traditions of the local folk and the human culture of places go back millennia. I have no trouble at all imagining Soviet Belles that give Comrade Stalin heartburn. Seriously, for every Mahan, Leningrad, and Nurnburg who toe the party line, we have Belles like New Orleans (black) and Graf Spee (honorable) whose very existence as they are is a finger in the eye of the current rulers of their respective states.
  4. Okay, Korky, ya gotta riddle me this. What would Köln's connection be to Mardi Gras? For that matter, would any respectable German let loose to that extent?
  5. As is described in the updated first post, I will be commissioning a Mardi Gras 2018 work to include Naw'lins and a voted Belle. So feel free to also place votes for No Boat's companion for Fat Tuesday. :-) David and I are collaborating such that no Belle will be eligible for more than one work. Therefore New Orleans isn't votable now. We want to spread the wealth. :-)
  6. Yeah, the writers outdid themselves with this one, didn't they? :-)
  7. The votes are all over the board this time. :-) Option 2 :-)
  8. For the material in English, with some care you can avoid any gender usage when referring to the captain. Just look at the interviews for evidence of that. As far as the spoken snippets that will be voiced, I'm sure care can be taken even in other languages to maintain the ambiguity within the rules of particular languages. Certainly with English and Japanese it's not that hard at all. For the others, well, I'm sure some very smart and creative people are working to make sure the ambiguity is maintained.
  9. Okay, Korky and I are currently sharing a lovely text conversation about the inherent flaws of continental languages, Yes, because of the fundamental misogyny () of Spanish and German, anyone who knows those languages will have recognized that the honorifics used to refer to the Captain were masculine. This is because most everything is gendered in both languages...and anything having to do with warfare is pretty much guaranteed to be male. BCS can't maintain the technique they use in English and Japanese with the continental languages. That doesn't change the fact that there are women in the continental militaries or that BCS's intent is not to gender the captain, but I thought I'd throw this out in Dmnt's defense. Not that this changes that I'm still waiting for an apology for all the females of the gaming world.
  10. /me raises a glass to the pairing Let the sloshing commence!
  11. Nah, it's all good, Korky. My issue earlier was with the claim I can't even exist in the game. The old "No gurls allowed" shtick that Dmnt seems to subscribe to. "Your world of starship captains doesn't admit women" - Janet Lester That's bullpuckey We've learned a lot since 1939 and gladly the Belles are ahead of their time.
  12. I invite you to find a single reference to the captain's gender in anything that has been written and released by BCS for VB. You won't. There's a reason for that and they've gone well out of their way to preserve that ambiguity. Kindly don't poke your dick at my dreams and aspirations. I don't appreciate it. Also:
  13. I endorse this lore question. I also would vote NO Boat to present it. :-)
  14. I'll just note that there is a world of difference between researched, tested, and in-service...
  15. Good thing my starter Belle is such a closely held secret...
  16. I'll complement the good Kapitan Korky. I like the same two he does. Both his half votes are now full votes. :-)
  17. The image that keeps coming to mind for Kirsten is that nutcase femme fatale from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Dr Elsa Schneider. Makes me want to take a bullwhip to her...
  18. No one from the great Republic of Turkey. :-(
  19. Sounds kinda similar to if an American Belle chose a black man as captain. Lynching in the late 30's was not a practice peculiar to Germany...
