    NRP Username: Shephard Steam: https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198044914804/ Preferred Faction: Prussia Preferred Role: General Why you'd like to lead: Over the past two campaigns I have put in a lot of effort into either leading the faction or helping manage it, I believe that I could be a useful officer and strategist if allowed to. Also I do just generally love the atmosphere in the faction chats combined with the existential dread before a battle, especially if I am held accountable for it.

    Polo acting cheeky when before foreign help the CF was being beaten back badly. But nevertheless, good fight everyone may we not forget our roots when we are a part of any future faction, cadia stands...

    Smoke filled the battlefield, rockets flew down on the clumped french fortifications coupled with the occasional fire of the howitzer, after biding our time softening the exposed Frenches we were finally given the order to charge. The poor bastards on the fort didn't know what hit them, after we cut down the ones in the fort their whole military seemed to evaporate. Later, when another french force came around the bastards tried the same tactic of creating a massive fortification. After guarding our beautiful rocket array me and the lads went to the nearby woods to hopefully pick some off and stop that cannon harassing our howitzer. We waited a few minutes until the order came, the main army charged the centre and sent their forces heading left, right into our charge ! The look on the faces of the Frenches when they realised they were surrounded was priceless.

    The following message has been approved by the germanic forces cabinet. Pictured below is the leader of the cabinet Shephard van Zuylen charging an open position in the enemy lines with 3 men attempting to take down the enemy artillery. They were persued by a force of marines that easily outnumbered them. Alas the fortifications were too strong, despite giving it their all the Dutch and German soldiers weren't able to breach the fort leading to them being cut down in a glorious last stand. However the cabinet forces would later redeem themselves with a later charge flanking the enemy from behind and allowing victory to be secured. This warranted a tea break enjoyed by the whole line. Sung by GFC soldiers during their march into the French capital ripe for the pillaging.

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:
