Buying regular rifled carbines is probably also not going to show up in Lords, but it makes sense.

You’re giving your men new guns, ultimately, so that as many of them as possible are alive by the end of the war (“as many of them as possible” being something like twelve people, but still), and so that you live to the end of the war. It’s an immediate boost in wartime ability that doesn’t translate well to peacetime.

How many puppet governments does Takara had so far?

“Personal gain” is subjective.

While it may seem like unvarnished greed to the rest of us (usually because it is), the people who are doing the committing will rationalise their actions one way or another. Maybe they believe their need is greater than the ones they’re screwing over, or that whatever their stealing is rightfully theirs/unrightfully their target’s in the first place, or that due to some prior action, they “deserve” more than what life has given them.

Personal gain it might end up being, but most thieves still end up thinking they are doing the right thing, which in some respects, makes them no less worse than Cazarosta.

And just a few hours before my sunday Rogue Trader game even.

@Cataphrak, I had this to ask: We know that the standard colour uniforms of Tierra is burnt orange, while Takara’s deep blue or black and silver, while Antar doesn’t have one. So what about Kian’s standard colour for their army uniforms?! Ash grey like Bourbon France?


#54939

It depends on the army and the branch, but I haven’t actually worked out Kian’s uniform hierarchy yet.


#54940

Thanks! Good to know and sorry for disturbing. BTW, my best guess for the colours of the Armies Of the Imperial Banner is a white coat with golden yellow facings and black gaiters similar to their national colours.

How strong was Edwin?


#54942

“Strong enough to break Wulfram.”


#54943

I don’t get it? Military power or other aspects?


#54944

He’s obviously talking about Edwin being strong enough to break Wulframs arm in arm wrestling


#54945

But back at the era of Unification Wulfram had a queen as the sovereign.


#54946

Then they had a King whom he smacked around twice but didn’t finish the job on.


#54947

How would Tierra deal with a situation where a child that was named after a saint and that child ends up becoming a saint? Would there be 2 saints with the same name?


#54948

Very simple: Ask @Cataphrak


#54949

You know how Kings get to choose which one of their many middle names to use as their regnal name and usually choose one for continuity’s sake? (I’m looking at you Albert Edward von Saxe Coburg-Gotha!)

It’s like the opposite of that in the rare occasions it does happen and Saints can’t be distinguished by their homeland or site of martyrdom (Saints are rarer than Kings, and tend to have more varied names). So if you had say, if King Miguel were somehow sainted, and there already was a St. Miguel of Tierra, then he’d probably either become St. Alejandro of Tierra (due to one of his middle names) or St. Miguel of Aetoria.

He thought he killed his dad so he chose Edward out of guilt. Of course Edward triggered the Scottish. But they are Scottish, who cares what they think?


#54951

Frankly, I think he might have felt his mom’s disapproving stare on the back of his neck when choosing a regnal name.

I mean, if Bertie could make the French love him in a weekend, he could charm Scotland pretty easy, I think.


#54952

I’d wager other scottish people do.

“If you didn’t sleep with that actress, my Albert would still be here with me! But noooo, you had to go and get caught with an Irish actress and get your father injured in a carriage accident.”


#54954

I thought it was the pneumonia he caught on his “I’m not angry, just disappointed” walk.
