Here you go with the latest update. Well the mystery Bell seems to be Soviet, considering how she adresses the captain. (Not british, like some smart folks on the discord thought.) Who she could be, i have an idea, but no real evidence. Yet. About Sinterklaas! Yes! Sinterklaas! Why do I get excited. Well in Germany is a veery similar tradition. The dutch Sinterklaas, in our case probably Canarias, also needs a zwarte Piet. I recommend HMS Nubian or, if she is annoyed by it, a black faced Diether von Roeder. The latter version would be closer to the living tradition. She also would give all the naughty captains real trouble for being naughty. ^^ Another thing I decided to not to bite my tongue here, because it's all fun and games anyway. If there is at any point any mentioning of the Nikolaus (the German Sinterklaas), I highly recommend Yavuz for the role, because of the origin of the real St. Nikolaus in Turkey. Another thing would be interesting, because Germany in itself is divided by whom the Nikolaus is accompanied. Either a very grumpy old man or a demon. Both to punish the naughty kids... or captains or sometimes just to carry the stuff of Nikolaus. (And don't ask what's the name of the grumpy one is.... there are several. I personally am used to the grumpy old man who goes by the name Knecht Ruprecht.) And who would come up with the KM Niklaus idea? Yavuz/Goeben herself? Someone else? Nürnberg feeling provoked by some dutch topping her on christmas traditions. I'm so exited for the third part. Even if I don't really expect any german traditions to pop up. Not exotic enough.
