    [Oshun]

    Kssan dashes through the ruins, taking a flying leap at the fish that bit Quorthon. [22/60] He wraps his tentacles around the creature's neck, strangling it as he injects his poison, causing it to let out a high-pitched shriek. [Fish A receives +30% Stress! Fish A has gained PSN!]

    As he struggles with his target, the other fish close in on Kssan. one dives for its tail [76/45] but misses, and unable to stop its momentum, falls into the pit. Quorthon shoots his hands out to grab the little bastard by the neck, [96/60] but isn't quick enough. The creature skitters off into the dark, but its hissing makes it clear that it's still nearby.


    I am so sorry Shock.

    Depressperado what do you mean by "top of the vault"

    "Big room"

    because I didn't want to say chamber a bunch of times.

    The Nation is a jingoistic republic with a government roughly similar to the United States' (Toasters had snazzy names for the three branches of government but I don't remember them and they're not on the world-building page!) It considers itself to be the only legitimate government, and as such, believes the whole world to be in its territory, even the uncharted northern hemisphere. blue and white are the colors of its navy, and the idea is that the Naval flag is the National one in blue and white. It's very militaristic. Toasters had suggested green and sandy brown for colors, which I like, but any colors are fine other than black and gold, the colors of the Lockjaw Union. I don't have a particular national symbol in mind, other than that crows, keys, and locks are all off-limits, again because of their ties to the Lockjaw. The flag should probably be something simplistic. My original idea was a ship's wheel, but I don't like that much.

    The ceiling is about 15 feet above you, but the rubble from the collapsed floor puts it just within your reach. [19/80] With a leap, you grasp on to the edge of the hole and pull yourself up.

    Your two other fishy friends are poised for an attack.

    I'll probably think up some more on that later, gotta go for now!

    the way I've been seeing it is that the Nation basically means well but they're kind of clumsy and inefficient at times and also overbearing and kind of think that everyone wants to be under their umbrella

    which is very similar to the new california republic now that I think about it

    I think playing all that new vegas around the time speed racer came up with this setting has irrevocably tainted my perception of it

    it would depend on who you ask

    The Lockjaw consider them to be oppressive tyrants

    but the Lockjaw aren't exactly nice guys themselves

    the biggest problem is that they lack the infrastructure to support the sort of empire they claim to have

    there military influence can be felt pretty much everywhere

    but the further north you get, the less you see other government services

    The National continent proper is a wealthy and prosperous area, and most of the surrounding islands are as well

    I mentioned it before, but Firefly is a decent analogy. Or even the American old west, if the individualism and lawlessness had grown so intense that a second civil war broke out.

    [Ridiculous Endurance 25% (B)] [Strong and Silent 15% (C)] [Shattering Fist Master 35% (A)] [Wasteland Wanderer 15% (A)] [Stubborn Mule 10% (D)]


    Mako mutters a muffled curse under the head wrapping, and goes over to the cabin boy's body to try to perform first aid if there's any life signs.

    refresher!

    Galk and Garret took the elevator to Deck 2, to make sure the ship wasn't being hijacked

    everyone else headed down the stairs to Deck 6, where the ruckus is currently going down.

    You may have said you're going with the former group and I just forgot though!

    If he did, then it floundered incredibly fast, since I rarely venture past the first page.

    Though Sand didn't care much for his companions, there was a better chance of survival the more of them that were living, and besides, killing things was fun. He grabs the nearest fish and crushes it in his hands.
