    Not sure what you are trying to say here. What did she attempt to kill a few months ago and why are we the unreasonable one?

    More rape? Now with Angartyr? :bounce:

    AA, sure.

    A half-mad vampire with a nuclear banhammer presiding over a nazi Vinland. Everything is right with the world.

    IA! IA! IA!

    Ah, I see. It seems I failed to comprehend that sentence.

    BTW, I love how we now have 'the other Freyjanna' and 'the other Angartyr'. We are but one step away from losing all sense of identity and becoming otherkin.

    IA! IA! IA! :happytrollboy:

    'Thou shalt not make a machine in the likeness of a human mind.' :rpgcodex:

    These options... :lol: How long until all of our choices are 'do we Blood for the Blood God or do we Skulls for the Skull Throne?'

    Too bad we didn't get to clean the house. From a ruler of the country to janitor - now that's a career! And they ask why the sentient machines have rebelled.

    They are sooo romantic.

    So strong. So manly.

    They can make us happy. :love::happytrollboy:

    We are a tranny cyborg, the first of its kind. Oh, the wonders of technology!

    Why not? The otherkin is not exactly the best of our friends, he/she/it is just another of the players. Maybe they will all eat each other and leave us alone for a while.

    1B - We may be a tranny, but we are not an emo. What's with these choices to kill ourselves at a first inconvenience? :rpgcodex:
    2G - Wait, are we really going to drop it on civilians just to make an example of them? Not sure if :incline: or :decline:. The project was suggested by the otherkin, perhaps it could be reviewed once more in light of his/her/its disappearance?
    3A - I don't see harm in letting them know about anything that is in Sarah's computer. They already are human-like machines, it's we who should be catching up to them. The Atlantean database, however, should remain inaccessible to them.
    4A - Fuck the otherkin.

    I am pretty sure that the bombings fascilitated nothing, as the war ended with the defeat and capitulation of the Kwantung Army. That's what one should target if they want to win wars. Acts of terrorism perpetrated against civilans do precious little and in fact incite the combatants to be even more fierce.

    But hey, Vinland is on its way to inevitable GLORY, anyway, so it's not like it matters in the long run.

    :avatard:
    IA! IA! IA!

    Can't we at least take their women to compensate for the losses in population? :roll:

    That's what our protagonist reminds me of (open)

    But we have radar coverage along with naval and air superiority. How they would even reach us if no technology leaks occur anymore?

    And if they still do, we'd better start working on space satellites and orbital defences soon.

    They would have run out of manpower eventually (how many able-bodied men can you muster in 5 years after total defeat?), and their own logistical and economical problems would do them in.

    Oh, no, I am very much in favor of using them, just on military targets (say, the invasion fleets).

    It would be less effective than wiping out their holy cities and crippling the foundation of their faith, that much is granted, but as far as the demonstration of power goes, it should have sufficed. They have no answer to that.

    Eh, it is all pretty minor in a grand scheme of things. How many people were there in 1100 AD, anyway? About a million of people in Rome and half a million in Constantinopol, or so I presume.

    Well, I have enough awareness to know Vinland does not represent mankind, being only a tiny part of it. We are the ones who are xenos. Unless we are willing to purge the Earth from untermenschen completely (since we abolished slavery and can't use them as beasts of burden), we might as well try to maintain relationships with the rest of them and bring them to our level eventually, wrestling them from under control of extra-planars and -terrestrials. We will have to stand united against the Gods and Horrors.

    Sarah and Jacob were sleazebags, but they had the right idea about the World Government. If we are breaking timelines left and right, might as well do something that was not attempted in the official one.

    Nanomachines? This is getting better by the minute.

    Do we still have regenerative powers? If we make a cut, how fast does it close? Faster than before? What about poisons and sicknesses? Can we regenerate on a cellular level (as in, can we cure cancer)?

    Are these implants uniquely adjusted to our own body?

    Also, what about the modifications to our skin? Have we become knife-proof or something? I would assume whoever did this at least had the foresight to not have Freijanna cut herself on her own nails.

    That is a bit surprising to hear. I am still struggling to understand the relation between Frey, Angy and IA. From what I remember, they do not have vivid memories of each other's experiences, and current Angy's body is not really Frey's real body, so there is not 'muscle memory' to speak of. Why would it make it so uncomfoirtable for Angy, then? It should be no more inconvenient than when he remembered it for the first time.

    Just trying to figure out how to preserve our SAN which I feel is sinking lower and lower with each choice.

    This should become a new military-grade encryption standard. :salute:

    It's ingenious. The enemy will come for the intelligence, but will be derailed by all the porn and forget what they wanted to do in the first place. And even if they download a top-secret schematics, they will stay for longer to grab a movie or two as well, giving the reaction team more time to apprehend them. GJ, Sarah!

    So we are somewhere in the fifties or sixties of the OTL, research-wise. Are there electric guitars? Can we simply conquer the world with the power of Rock a few years from now?

    :lol: :lol: :lol:

    We probably did if for fun and evulz.

    So, basically, ready your burkas and hail the religion of peace? :lol:

    Perhaps it is time we renewed our arrangements with the middle-eastern countries, seeing how they will reign supreme on the continent due to our actions.

    1C. - Honestly, I want to concentrate on Earhly matters because our research capabilities far outstrip our economical and societal ones. FFS, it is only 5 years since we decided not to engage in slave trade. We are a nation that has about a few millions of people, at most, yet hoards 95% of technologies. We can never make full use of them unless we organize a population boom or something. That, or we make a dash for sentient robots that will do all the work for us. Because that can never go wrong. :lol:

    Unfortunately, the choice to settle for our own planet is worded as dismissing the satellite idea as a waste of resourses. Myself, I think it's great, just a bit ahead of its time.

    We can map the continent with planes just as easily, and with railroads in the near future it would matter little if the cities are founded in 'best possible' locations or not.

    2B. - Yeah, let's see what they have to say for themselves. Alexis has probably perished in the nuclear fires, I wonder who runs them now and why they are at war with Hungary of all countires.

    3A. - Sure, let's hear them as well.

    4B. - Use them as a deterrence. The secret will eventually leak, we'd better get used to modern sensibilities regarding their application.

    5A. - We are still Angartyr. Grab a shotgun and get to work.

    Bitch, please. Five years of slavery is nothing. Carl and his people have likely seen worse, and we've been through so much shit being a superhuman does not even start to compensate.

    If they aren't fit for societal life anymore, we will make a xeno extermination squad out of them. :salute:

    6A. - Can't we just commission reinforced gloves and metal-clad boots until our scientists discover Power Armor?

    Yeah, if it is a long-term program and we aren't going crazy with the investments, count me in for 1A too.

    What territory do we and Wyandot currently occupy?

    In fact, a crude political map with our allies/enemies on it would be handy (if it isn't too much trouble, of course) because I am starting to get a bit lost. My knowledge is limited when it comes to geopolitics in XIIth century, let alone in a fictional universe. If it is too much busywork, then just a list of allies, potential allies, neutaltards and enemies would do.

    While we are at it, what territories does the Holy Roman Empire currently occupy? How long until it breaks up into different states and can the process be facilitated?

    Wait, we number less than a million? That's... disturbing. Hopefully, the emancipated slaves will contribute to the boom.

    How did that go, by the way? What is the status of our civil affairs? Are the slaves counted towards 'Norsemen' as far as their rights go, or are they still discriminated against on a genetic basis?

    We need to do something about this feeling of superiority our people have, being all KKK-like does not help economics very much. Some sort of encouragement to absorb the foreigners in our society more easily. :incloosive:

    I hope you meant 1,000,000 or I have missed some major exterminatus. :?

    Why?

    Well, I don't mean 'why being nuked is bad', that is obvious, but are we still succeptible to irradiation? That's what I meant by being able to regenerate on a cellular level.

    Actually, is there any research on irradiation and its effects? The quote about 'bitter water' suggests that its ITZ effects haven't gone unnoticed.

    How long until nuclear power plants?

    So we got triggered just by reading words? :decline: How long until we start taking offence at everything?

    Yeah, I love how uneven it is - our research capabilities far outstrip our industrial ones. We are barely able to build a prototype device before it becomes obsolete.

    I wonder what became of our steam ships that we commissioned about ten years ago. :lol:

    Railroads, we need railroads and the ability to concentrate our efforts and resourses where they are most needed.

    Wait, do these guys even have the power and clout to enforce their will in the countries devastated by the unsuccessful war? I would expect the Roman Empire to fall apart after such a tremendous blow to the religion that held them together, and I would expect the religion to crack alongside similar lines. Or maybe its the other way around, the states will form around these new sects, since there is no idea of a nation to rally people around yet.

    Who is going to come after heretics if everyone is a heretic?

    :bounce::bounce::bounce:

    Actually, it is very interesting that the Muslims were completely ignored in this whole World War. I wonder why.

    Did we find out if the war was a result of S&J's leakage of the tech, or if there were other factors involved? I am particularly interested in a role that the ancient horrors got to play in this mess.

    As for being backwards... I am sure industrial espionage will take care of this in just a few years, and if europeans do not need extensive knowledge about firearms to produce and operate them, then the muslims will need neither.

    The world surely has changed. :salute:
