Cadet,

We are pleased to inform you of your selection into the United Nations 21st Century Leader Initiative. While you wait for your personal profile to be uploaded, please review the basic information of the program you are entering.

PURPOSE: As set out in UNSC Resolution 2198, to educate modern minds for new challenges and leadership demands by way of simulated combat, in partnership with an advanced AI core.

AI CORE: A female representation of a historical ship or series of ships who will be your partner throughout the program and your main asset in the Fishtank.

FISHTANK: A hyper-advanced supercomputer that simulates environments at sea, providing a platform for cadets to hone their leadership abilities and critical skills.

CAMPUS: Located in Severnaya Zemlya, Russia. Buying warm clothes will be unnecessary: the facility is mostly underground and isolated from the elements.

SELECTION: This letter is often confusing to selectees. You have been chosen for the UN21CLI on the basis of: your academic ability, your aptitude for computer code, your demonstrated leadership ability, mental flexibility, determination, cunning, and trickery. Regardless of your current status or your previous future plans, your family will be cared for while you are at UN21CLI as compensation for your service.

TL;DR

Top Gun with ships and AI Ship Waifu, true love, TACTICAL combat on the high seas, I liked Arpeggio

stop 0x0005684f (2x9475^7, #fc0000000)

It appears that Fishtank has encountered an error. We will endeavor to fix this, but in the meantime we request that you manually re-enter the test results you received a month ago below.

PERSONAL INFORMATION:
NAME: __________
DATE OF BIRTH: ______
PLACE OF BIRTH: ______
FAMILY BACKGROUND:
LIFE HISTORY (SUMMATION):

TEST INFORMATION: (These metrics are normalized such that a student’s scores should add to 9)
OFFENSIVE HACKING ABILITY:
DEFENSIVE HACKING ABILTY:
INITATIVE AND ACTION:
FLEXIBILITY AND REACTION:

Fishtank also requests that at this time you submit your preferred choice of AI Core at this time. Fishtank simulation has completed modeling of a limited selection, which is listed below. Please keep in mind that your AI Core has only so much processing power, and a more potent Core component will leave less power for other simulation. Choose one or a group of three from the third line in each nation.

SIMULATIONS OF HIS MAJESTY’S NAVY (Choose one)
IRON DUKE (Moon+), WARSPITE, HOOD, PRINCE OF WALES (Morm+) (arranged in increasing power)

Please submit the above information. You will be collected from your current residence within 24 hours. Welcome to the program.


Srsly, wat?

Choose ship. Fight dudes. Romance your ship, or someone else's ship if you like that kind of thing. That's it.


AI Ship Waifu: You are encouraged to make them their own characters. The oldest ones will have been created a few months ago and been hanging out with the other AI Ship Waifus, the youngest, a few days before you show up.

2078: 2078 could be better, but it was all a matter of perspective. Contrary to science’s predictions, sea levels had held steady for the first part of the century, but it only turned out to be a brief respite. In the early 60s, the waters crept up again, and they’ve driven humanity’s problems for the last generation. The many legacies of humanity’s brushfire wars over the last sixty years were set aside for two loose alliances, with the developed nations hoarding their resources to support their own population, while the underdeveloped global south tries to claw back as much as they possibly can. Smoldering wars over water and elevated land are becoming common. The developed north is meanwhile surging into a new renaissance, with robotics beginning to dominate the economy. Impossible-looking buildings of twisted glass loom over the risen shorelines, some cities even built with the expectation that they’ll be drowned and left to stand in water like a new Venice. Apocalyptic religious movements and splinters are springing up worldwide, preaching - if not the end of the world - the passing of an age; from dominion of the land to dominion of the sea.

Do whatever you want for your char's home region if it doesn't conflict with anyone else. If you want guidance, ask me but you are perfectly allowed to do it on your own.

Tactical Combat: Fair warning - this has an actual, numbers-and-dice based combat system for ship battles. If you really don't want to deal with what's basically a pared-down wargame you might not want to bother.

PC Age : 15 to 21 or so, it's anime combat school.



Slots:

No slot limit, this scales fairly easily. Submit whatever and you're in.

Alaska's are slightly less powered than the lowest battleships and slightly more powered than the best cruisers so let's go with... sure if you let me get back to you later after I hack together balancing for it?

Arch-Magos Winter

Technically I'd say the South Dakota is part of the Interwar/Early War generation - her original designs date from 1920, and as treaties kicked in had to be both the design and the ship had to be scrapped and rewritten. She was then rebuilt again according to the new treaties, and finished before WWII started. She's easily one of the best of that era, if not the best - but you might be considering the retrofits she received to up her anti-air power during the war as why she's in the Late War period.

EDIT:

Hell, I'd throw her as Mid-war along with the North Carolina-Class. She couldn't have duked it out with the Yamamoto but she could certainly take on the Bismark and the Hood. She was part of the Task Force designed to say fuck you to the Tirpitz, though the two never fought as that ship pussied out on the prospect of facing the Washington and South Dakota at the same time. I'd give her an extra 5 circuits to represent this.

SeiKeo
January 25th, 2014, 06:36 PM
The designs are interwar sure but the configuration is late-war so there you go

So in all fairness I should give out the stat sheet now because the differences can be important. (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AhWO_2p0SmyEdHlrVGNBRXdSOEhET3YzYzJvbk5EW FE&usp=sharing) Please note that these are not final and will be adjusted if needed throughout the game but they are not yet up for debate. If something is glaringly obviously staggeringly in need of correction and I've overlooked it tell me but otherwise I am not going to be doing minor adjustments now.

And yes, we should go as stereotypical as possible.

Had I not been able to get the Alaska's then I would have requested the California in place of the Tennessee and portrayed her as such. A heavily tanned, bottle blonde surfer chick with big tits and a surfer/valley girl accent.

Also, Leo I'd like to switch out Guam for the Hawaii. Because I don't know enough stereotypes about Guam to make a funny avatar for her.

Yes.

To give you an idea 'bout Iowa - no one gives a shit about Iowa outside of the voting season. Nothing much has ever happened in Iowa. The most famous thing about Iowa is that Iowa exists.

Be totally bland!

Nope.

Note on rule changes: Simulation cards drawn at the beginning of the round no longer have to be played. You can either play one or discard both.

Initiative is calculated by adding initiative rolls for the team and comparing as a team value to reduce the number of mini phases.

Depends on card but unless it specifies a time when it stops working it works for the whole match unless I made a mistake.

@Leo: Think you made a typo; which of the three currently labeled are my actual sim cards?

This is not a typo, actually. The RNG managed to spit out simulation cards for all three of your flexibility rolls. The last two are the beginning ones that you have to play one or discard. Those three you can treat like normal.

Technically only would have been a third of your guns, but the single-use bomber squadron wouldn't be worth that. Unless you could use them to kamikaze your opponents for massive damage.

The size of a cadet’s hand is determined by his test parameters. When the game begins, each commander is dealt offensive cards equal to their offensive hack score, defensive cards equal to their defensive hack score, and a random selection of cards equal to their flexibility score. In addition, they are each dealt two simulation cards, of which they must discard one and may either play or discard the other. Each turn in combat, a cadet can use a number of offensive cards equal to their offensive hack score, and the same for defense. These cards can be played at any point in the turn. Cards can also be discarded to nullify other cards - either discarding two of your own cards to remove one enemy card, or discarding three to remove a simulation card. At the beginning of each turn, new cards are dealt to each cadet to fill their hand, and cards can be discarded at any time.

TCG-speak, WHATEVER! Was/am I able to remove one of Gold Team's cards right now before I post again? That was the whole point I discarded anything beyond the one unused Sim in my previous post; I couldn't predict what he'd play, so I figured I'd err on the side of caution by ditching three.

The rulebook wasn't super specific on the manner of use.

SeiKeo

There is no discard pile thing, 'cards' is kind of a metaphor and there's no graveyard, every card just has a number and I run an RNG to determine who draws what. You can't like prediscard to preemtively nullify other cards if that's what you mean?

Meh, is more an issue of clarity of intent. The rules didn't say you couldn't preemptively discard to neutralize an enemy card, and so the omission was understood to imply that you could. Now we know better.

Hmm, how to deal w/ the terrain fuck-up, though...

I think that's more you jumping on conclussions. Like, if the rulebook itself does not say it is there, then ask the GM before acting.
