This RP will be purely narrative. I'll setup the naval battles with fleet details along with a crude Microsoft Paint map and then you'll describe your ship's action. Occasionally I'll explain and assign damage to PC ships, but if you're giving your ship a real beating in your action posts then I'll rarely pile on more.

Death will be your call. If you think it fits the story and you want to blow your capital ship and then jump into one of your escort ship's perspective then be my guest. As for defeat, it's a narrative possibility. Conger may very we'll defeat Rockledge, and the consequences of that would obviously be enormous.

I hope to start seeing more character sheets in the near future.

Completely forgot about this. I'll drag my ass away from Rome 2/Borderlands Presequel and get on with writing this up tonight.

Captain Aryes Chalcedon, Triērarchos of the Yéphira tou Kháron [editors note; low gothic translit. roughly to "Pont of Charon"], Strike Cruiser of the Adeptus Astartes Phratría Phídia Siderénios [editors note; low gothic translit. roughly to "Iron Snakes Chapter"] approaching conflict zone...

There is a marked lack of... integrity here. I don't understand all of these professions of interest and a willingness to take part, only to let it languish. Better to not reply at all than to raise and dash hopes against a stone.

Bone2pick, you might have to curtail your expectations rather significantly to get this off the ground.

I might join this now that the other game I was in died. But will need to think of some reasonable weaknesses for a Mechanicus Cruiser to have.

Sorry for the late reply. I was relying on my thread subscription updates to keep me informed of any new posts here, but it appears that didn't happen. I suspect that if this RP was ever going to get enough players to start it would have happened by now. I'm not sure what else I can/could do to attract more committed players?

Personally speaking all is not lost, I have plans to convert this RP setup into a story for the fanfic section of this forum. The struggle for the Caligo sector will go on. :victory:

I wish I could tell you. Chances are I won't get too much interest for my digital tabletop game either, but that's the way it goes I guess. I'd really hate to see this turn into a fanfic; no offense but I'd really like to 'do' rather than just read.

Well I certainly wouldn't "hate" converting The Holy Fleet into a short story, but I do agree with you. I'd rather see this narrative setup turn into what it was intended for, a multi-player/multi-ship void war with the benefit of a variety of perspectives. That way we could all be readers and doers.

There are several strong writers on this board and I was hoping to recruit a few: As it turned out it didn't happen. And if my options are limited to letting my RP premise and research just fade away or be posted as fanfic, then I choose fanfic.

I can't really argue with you, just grouse at the result. I'll definitely read whatever you make though, so I suppose there's a silver lining. :good:
