BTW I am leaning towards the Republic because Sky Vikings.

Remember, the similarities between Anglea and vikings are minimal at best. It pretty much starts and stops at the fact that they both like raiding.

The Mobula is guild.

The Spire is baronies.

Really? The notes on it says its a party boat for royal people.

The notes more specifically say that it was commissioned by a Vastness princess. The Vastness is the area to the south end of the map occupied by the Mercantile Guild.

They raid, keep slaves, are considered barbaric by other civs, and have a surprisingly complex civilization. Very much like goblins and orcs from other worlds.

Interesting thought. Although, that's assuming that other nations see them as barbaric, which I'm not sure is true. For example, Anglea has better technology than most other nations with the likely exception of Chaladon, and a structured democratic system of government. Unless other nations just have literally no idea how Anglea does things, which is unlikely, they would see it less as a horde of barbarians and more as a rival civilisation, one who happens to be fond of raiding.

From what Muse has stated, the Anglean Republic is actually not that similar to vikings. They're linguistically similar, with scandinavian sounding city names, etc. And they've been described by Muse as having a viking style town-hall democracy (whatever that means exactly), and of course they raid a lot, but that's where the similarities end. They most certainly aren't barbarians, and they don't live in tribes like the Arashi – in fact they're probably one of the more 'civilised' nations (although it's been stated that they do keep a lot of slaves). They're raiding of everyone else is probably due more to necessity than any kind of malevolence. They need resources to live and they want technology to advance themselves, and if others aren't willing to trade, they'll take what they want. Basically they're vikings in attitude, but not much else.

I would think the Order of Chaladon would be a kind of technocratic oligarchy. It's already been revealed that the term Order of Chaladon doesn't apply to the nation itself but rather the fraternity of scholars, philosophers and gentleman. Therefore I imagine that Chaladon is actually technically made up of separate states, but united through each state's governors all being members of this 'Order of Chaladon'. That's my speculation anyway.

Furious at the Killstealer, I try to destroy it using Grond, regardless of its guards or political immunity.

Hey, I really don't see any reason why this shouldn't be implemented. I'm up for it.

--Zankief's Warehouse--

Gareth looks up from stroking Roc to see Bdrline rush in.

"What's up?"

"They've arrived."

Everyone freezes in place for a moment, and silence settles, only broken when Zardis launches from his chair to his shotgun, which was leaning against the wall.

"Then let's go!"

Gareth looks from Lyre to Bdrline.

"I suppose? But surely we need some kind of plan of action. We can't just charge in there, guns blazing."


"We can't."

Michael is leaning against the wall, fondling a spyglass.

"Slava's guildhall is a fortress. One way in, one way out. There's not exactly any way we're going to be able to sneak in there. It'd have to be the front door."

I actually think this could be really cool, allowing you to aim at higher and lower targets. However, it would have to be limited to a reasonable degree to avoid upside down ships.

I shall continue healing as well as training to use the Force, in the hopes of being able to eventually use the Force against the wall.

Do not worry. Though sometimes it may seem as though I am distant, I am always watching.
