    NRP Username: Shephard GUID: 1593700 Steam: https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198044914804/ Preferred Faction: Crown commonwealth Preferred Role: General Why you'd like to lead: I was the leader of the Crown colonies, I want a chance to redeem my failures as a leader and have some success in the field. I am better in the campaign map than tactics however I am still able to hold my own. I have been dedicated to the crown colonies and pewpew can attest to me taking things a bit to seriously, for example spamming his steam with discussions on campaign movements. I hope that I can add to our revenge counter attack against the GR, AND EVEN THOUGH THOSE FROGS HAVE WON WE HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN THE LOSES WE HAVE ENDURED, WE HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN THE LANDS OR PEOPLE WE HAVE LOST AND WE HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN THE PLEASURE OF STICKING A BAYONET THROUGH A FROGS TORSO. RULE BRITANNIA. Shephard Kemp is gone, here comes Shephard Van Zuylen

    Did you just refer to yourself in the third person ? Shephard doesn't like this.

    Hey everyone, shepcunt here and I personally would like to get to the point and suggest a change to the way we handle the story of the NRP campaign, from the initial ideas I interpreted it as something that would have an official hub that would be added to by the admins and made official in the lore taking perspective from all factions and leaders as well as telling grand tales of heroism, however it hasn't been nearly as structured and seems to just be a "post your best moments of the campaign here" deal with a tiny smidgen of lore each week. I therefore propose that the lore and story should be overseen by a team of 3 or more admins a round (one for each faction looking for heroism and the other looking at the general way the battle goes and picking out any interesting engagements), the admins would then collect the lore and consult with each other and the head of the campaign to pick out the appropriate things to include, then a comprehensive summary of the lore is included in an official place written by the team of admins. I believe that this could add the theme of the campaign's story being told to us by historians analysing the battles of a bygone era, it could also make the lore more consistent and organised as people would know the number of battles, what significant feats happened in those battles and all of the significant things that particular figures have done. Another more fun aspect of this would be that due to the lore being easily accessible in one place and more detailed it could be better utilised in the events, making the campaign feel more like a story instead of a competition. For example one application could be using a specific map with the troops being told to generally act a certain way due to the lore e.g. A wounded British garrison that has already lost a battle is defending nearby villages against the French, on the event announcement it could be mentioned how the french troops are full of hope and patriotic zeal ready to charge and finally wipe the garrison out, while the mood on the British side is melancholy with many of the troops only wanting to survive and so being told to be more cautious. This could also provide a nice way to asymmetrically balance the battles and add more flavour to them such as the Brits being on a hilltop with houses and so have an advantage on defence, however the hilltop could be a small area and so the french could easily surround it. The British would have to contend with low visibility due to the houses and being surrounded on all sides while the french would have to overcome the hill all while being fired upon by the British. (this may not be the best example but i'm sure you understand the concept) In conclusion I believe that treating the campaign as a story will allow us to add more variety and fun to it, if its expanded we could even have backstories and other small bits of lore incorporated to make an impact on the campaign, for example a french officer turns out to be British causing a rift in the ranks of the GR as the others debate weather or not to exile him, causing a schism in the republic. So yeah I hope the way we treat lore can be overhauled, I would be more than willing to help to make this a reality.

    "The battle had seemed lost but the colonies held firm, A decisive cavalry charge with help from infantry and grenades secured a victory, however it was our only victory on that day, Shephard standing horrified on the hilltop watching from afar as on the other skirmishes the lines broke, brave men undone by cowards not following the commands of their officers and running for their lives. Now the officers lie under the ground, the second army is destroyed and our once faithful allies surrendered to the french after a single defeat. The crown bleeds." For added effect listen to this song while reading:

    No, Its the people who play battlegrounds with only silenced pistols the whole game. (Also you probably only go for the short guy)

    Define gritty please. But my general favorite leaders are: Mac Arthur Rommel As well as the WW1 Austrian general who was very incompetent but still was highly decorated (But I forgot his name)

    Look alive men of the crown. I have been chosen to lead the colonies, and I will make damn sure than any incursions into crown territories are put down as swiftly as possible. I make a formal request to every soldier and general to fight tactically and to remember what we are fighting for with every bayonet stab, every shot and every cavalry charge. It is important to remember that I will do everything in my power to ensure victory however I am a single man and our colonies are not under the rule of a tyrant. No men of the crown, we share in the responsibility of victory and defeat from every ranker to every general. Lastly, even if the situation is grim we shall not capitulate until every man and woman lies dead in a field of battle, Britannia rules the waves and shall continue to do so despite our situation. Comrades, Rule Britannia ! (As a side note to make the RP more flavourful I will sometimes command everyone to sing a song if for example we are surrounded and outnumbered to boost morale. If you want to join in try to learn some of the lyrics of the following songs (more to be added))
