Re: Forum game: Explanation/Recruiting
Yay, we're all in! Two slots still up for grabs. I don't know if you'll need to, or want to, but if no one fills those slots, I would be interested in taking over a second fleet, if it is necessary.

I didn't realise so many people had chosen a name outside their HLP name for the Rear Admiral.

I like the look of all those flagship names all together like this, all these fleets listed together.

EDIT: I count 13/15 slots filled and 13 applications. I don't think you missed anyone.

I had thought of "Return on Investment" for the UGC Flagship if I got a second fleet and the UGC. Do you want to use that?

Anyway, your name is just tempting fate, you'll be the first one out of the game with that!  :D

EDIT: Just so you know, I don't know if it would make any difference with you, but it's not an original idea, the ship name was used in Colony Wars Red Sun here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e7Q9IIzOXRE

That video is amusing, since it is in French, and they say "Return on Investment". Couldn't they have translated "Return on Investment" into French?  :)

Better not mess with the ISiAC, she sells Hellbore cannons and has just recently an excellent Keel-Verezy weapon system which is currently locked on your bridge.

Re: Forum game: Explanation/Recruiting
Then it is settled. Let us hope that ship lives up to it's name! :)

So does that mean there's only one place left now?

And for just a little bit extra you can have Shiva Furnaces to go with your Hellbores! :D

(yes, I stole the name from StarControl2, it seemed appropriate for the UGC & the Universe)

Ah, I didn't realise it was from Star Control 2. Very fitting then, both for the faction, and since WoD takes such inspiration from that game.

Agreed; now we all need to make sure that the Inevitably Successful in All Circumstances lives up to its name. :P

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."

<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"

<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

Re: Forum game: Explanation/Recruiting
Let's just hope we don't have to redefine "success" and/or "all circumstances" in order for that to be true :p

[heavy russian accent]And I sup-pose I take up mantle of command for 3rd DD fleet [/heavy russian accent]:

Flagship: Katyusha
Admiral: Ivan Dimitrievic Kalazonitov
Can we choose traits yet?

Question: I've been checking out the commander traits, and wondering about morale scales. Does +1 morale mean that a charismatic leader would neutralize the -1 morale penalty of the DD?

Other question: Can one resupply in a contested system before securing it? I.e., if I am smashing in the face of the Nordera and find out that I am running out of cannon fodder my brave men and women are sustaining casualties, can I resupply with my Minor Action and keep smashing in the Nory headz with my Major?

EDIT: Third Question: Do we have any intel on enemy special abilities?

EDIT2: Fourth Question: Can I resupply twice in the same turn (Major + Minor)?

No, you choose traits when promoted

Yes.

No, you have to be in a friendly system to resupply.

Not yet

No, you have to be in a friendly system to resupply.

Ah, but what if I am defending? Say the Nordies attack my system and they do NOT secure it, but, instead, attack me. Can I defend and keep resupplying with their fleet in-system?

Oh, and must I destroy all enemy fleets before securing the system, or can I spend a major to secure it while there are still enemy forces present in the field?

Seems like all slots are filled up for now. I'll open up the rules/discussion thread tomorrow!

  Once they enter the system you are in, this system becomes contested. You cannot secure a system that has enemy fleets in it.
I'll elaborate on all these things in the other thread.
