March on, boys!

The tumult and the shouting dies; The Marshal and the King depart: Still stands Thine ancient sacrifice, An humble and a contrite heart. Just Providence, be with us yet, Lest we forget—lest we forget! Ken had never liked school. No more than the other boys, at any rate. And yet he found himself mou...

Re: Tales of a nightwatchman

*** 6 *** "My name," he said, "is Comrade Pariti. But you may call me Prince Faizal." And there she was. Madame Garchot. No, not him, her. The one lying on a divan in, truth be told, very little, grinning like the devil as she watched Comrade whatever or Prince whositthen at play...

Re: Jotlund should be removed

Jotlund you are a beatdown machine. You are in a position of fiscal superiority and you know it. I hope you are vaporized, arrogant pig.

Re: What If

Marshal Smyth took up his binoculars. He could see Shahagar. "Sir, you should withdraw," the cameras captured it. He did not seem to notice. "No," he replied, "Providence will not suffer me to fall." He spoke with an otherworldly voice. He was not talking to a man. He w...

Re: Great War

I would prefer Songia not be a major player because I don't feel it's part of the SMS lore in the same way Questers, Dumanum, Praetonia and Prekovy (gets a pass because Quiberon was important but honestly it already has more character and info than Songia) are. One theme of the war should remain CL ...

Re: What If

Dear father, I hope you are well and that life in peace pleases you. I am well enough. Things are very strange here. I am not sure I would get used to it if I lived here for a hundred years. I am not talking about the division, which is familiar enough, but we have been billeted often and seen less...

Re: Eyes Front

Another day, Lieutenant Rewnsure clocked in at the Pritluky naval yard. There was nothing for it, really, but to go as the Prekovy did, for there was no war, and nothing of interest at stake, and so he had only to preserve his identity as a Prekovy. He was an outsider, but then he was from the nort...

Eyes Front

"It is said in The Origin of the Races of Man that ""The Prekovar is a person without true sense, for he cannot conceive of himself separate from the collective of his race, and therefore has no personality." "It is personality, combined with intelligence, that produces the ...

Re: What If

"They cannot just leave." "They can, sir. It is in the contract." Fox sighed. Providence, it seemed, had never shined her light upon him. Why not? Had he not done his duty, as his father has told him, as his school had told him, as his brother officers had told him? The Committee...
