Al is concerned about Jace. He's had command experience, and has had to both bury comrades he's ordered to their deaths, and then write letters home to their families, so he knows what it feels like.

Meri has come to the realization that her comrades in arms in the world she's in are a sort of family; she lost both herbirth family and the family of the Creche when she fell through into the current world, and feels culpable for the loss, so she's determined to take care of what family she now has.

She senses that tbe Tempest ship is an authorititative craft, and that it has something to do with Wilfred - and knowsfrom her experiences with him that there is something nefarious about his life, (possibly to do with the Tempest). She does not have a radio set, so she doesn't know about the surrender order. She's of a minor noble British family in the wofld she came from, and her sire was the daughter of an Hidalgo nobleman emigre from the Canary Islands, living in what became Mexico aftrr the revolution against Spanish rule - before she herself was turned. Morganthe andher creche moved to st. Petersburg russia and served the court of the Czar. Modifications wdre made to tbe creche's members accordkng to the whims of their ColdOnes masters, but Meri was abroad wben thathapoened, so she is not a recipient of those modifications, bur she was presented to the Tsarina before the Tsarina's ultimate demise.

She thus recognizes a royal escutcheon on a warship when she sees one, and thus figures that such things as titles are, if not important to Wilfred's people, at least expected for people to use when identifying themselves.

wrote this on my pad, so pardon the grammar, etc.

Addendum - not that she really expects anybody to know her or her various connections from Adam or Nimrod...

When CPT J Percell writes in the "confrontation" with those on the ship, then I will speak for all of the Liams if that is alright.

I will spell their names the same, but will make it clear which is which.


Liam is in the coma.    Lyam is on the ship.  Leyam is dead.   Not sure what others will show up  LOL

I'm actually not precisely sure what the Hell galleon Commander's uniform would look like; the wheel cap and what I have in my mind roughly match those seen briefly in the movie The Assassination Bureau, and resemble the German air (army) officers uniforms from that same movie, save that I see it as greyish white.

Hell Galleons (spoilered for brevity's sake):
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

The Ta Chi would probably look as if somebody totally misunderstood the shape and size of a cossack saber (the 16th through 18th century originals were fairly massive for sabers, but they were nowhere near as long as Meri's weapon).
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
In any case, on Meri, especially with the Russian uniform, it looks absolutely impossibly huge. She did not have the Ta Chi when she served with the Russian aerial navy, of course, but she does now, so she decided to wear it with the uniform. Neither the blackness of the blade, nor the Demon characters forged into it can be seen, because it is currently scabbarded. Being a hellblade, however, it radiates demonic power and thaumic force; I would think that it would be palpable to a magical being such as a highlord.

I don't really mean to be disrespectful of royalty or aristocracy, but Meri is sort of jaundiced about them, since all she has met (including her own human relatives), other than her foster-father and his relatives on the Island of the Youkai, have been rather snotty, if you'll pardon the expression - as such were stereotypically wont to be back in the 1800s. Seems they don't like "provincials," or vamps, all that much...

In a table top game players could resolve conflict by rolling for initiative, and the dm or game master would make a ruling.   

In a game like this we have only our selves.   Our maturity and reason.   

I would like to see the last couple posts removed and rewritten.   Everyone unbunch your panties and find a way to tell a compelling story.

For future use, if a post offends, please explain that here and give the other person time to alter or remove it.   Avoid posting verbal pissing matches in the game thread


Please.   Its,a,good game with good folks in it.  Fix it.

I think Meri having been a spy would be less likely to flex her muscles and such.   Why not something like:

"Meri saw the woman draw her sidearm and recognised the weapon.  She could have easily avoided it with a blur of speed, but decided to let the highlord THINK she was in control."

I would have laughed at a reply like that and it would have served to protect your vision of,meri's powers.


I was competing in a karate "open" tournament in the 90's.  Some guys were braggin and trash talking.   My teacher said (loudly) " the young lion roars his dominance for all to hear.   The old dragon creeps along and thinks how tasty a young lion is"

Ok right now Jace is raging for a good reason she has been entirely disrespected.  Purcell if your character is lawful she should be willing to speak to Jace and tell her exactly what is going on and we will act rational as well.  Also please run by big attacks on people's caricatures with them and not just spring it on them.  

Let us help you take this where you want the story to go.  Tell us what you want and let us get the story there.

What I am going to do is this.  I am locking the game thread until we have all gotten a good idea of where this is going and have made any necessary changes.

Ok lets start this up again and keep this going a bit better this time.  Percell where do you want this seen to go?  Like what are your plans for what Highlord DuBlades goal is?  Do you want to get arrested or do you want us to fight for you?

The oridginal idea was that the plane gets taken, Wilfred escorted into the brig and discovering another shard.
I then though that the duckpond would get attacked and the tempest gets drawn into it but wilfred having to be released to lead the counter  attach when the other get outnumbered.

Ok that we can work with.  There are not too many storm walkers left but if the order has taken over some of the closer islands there could be all manor of things coming for us.

Meri's not precipitating anything, and Al's rather quixotically trying to shield her from the Albionians, the Albionians from her, back up Jace against the Albionians, Show support for Jace, Wilfred and Meri against the Albionians and stop a chop/slugfest by simply standing more or less in the way of everybody's possible routes of attack - all the while keeping an eye out for snipers.

Meri will probably fume, but do nothing more overt as per Al's "orders."

Meri's trying to be diplomatic. It's obviously not her strong suit, but she is sincere.

I figure the fire-bombs are like supernatural Greek fire meant to hurt people but not damage structures as much.  After all they want to take over the power of the station and not burn it away.  I think Donna may get communications from the palm tree after this much like a book series my ex liked.

Are the bombers biplane leftovers from the war, or new tech?

They are new versions of bombers that never got to production during the war.  The order has quite a few things like this.

Oh, OK, I see.

Meri's having fun; Al's going to get all unorthodox in a bit (not that a Grumman Duck with forward machine guns isn't already pretty unorthodox, LOL).
