"Inspired dearly by Arpeggio of Blue Steel, fueled by pure passion."
__________

Synopsis which you'll probably tl;dr but it doesnt rlly matter too much so its okay
Spoiler: Show More
In the year of 2103, as a result of extreme global warming and rising sea levels, humanity lost much of its land territory. Coinciding with this time was the appearance of a mysterious threat, called the "Fleet of Fog", originating from the depths of the oceans.


The sentient warships blockaded shipping routes, and all communications between countries were lost.


Their weapons and systems could defeat any standard human-built ship in direct combat.

The year is 2103.
Humanity is in a desperate fight for survival.
Your life is in your hands.

Just a few words...

Spoiler: Show More
This game started from March of this year, and it's come a long way. (Like, two in-game days, lol)

To whoever ends up reading this - new players are still welcome, but *the game itself is my motivation for continuing* - I'm only making the shift to this forum to make things smoother for me to run, and hopefully for my players to play (yes, the two of them.)

Anyways, if you somehow happen to be intrigued by any of this, feel free to join me on discord! We will all be more than happy to chat you up about anything, and more so if it's about this mess of words and mumbojumbo. You can message me at Aster#5952 - no obligations!

A lot of the content in this game is NOT here - it mostly sits on my discord server (and a really comprehensive google docs which the two players made themselves!) so if everything looks really bare bones here, it's only because the content simply does not belong here.

That's about all! If you're reading this, you'll probably just silently disappear off into the depths of the internet without me knowing...
like all those ships they've sunk, heh

Spoiler: Show More

Verlaine: "Affirm, preparing guns."

At a range of 12 miles, the fleet angles eastwards to engage. Atago and Fuso initiate the fight with full broadsides of their main batteries, landing a single 203mm shell (7%) and 356mm shell (14%), severely damaging the Mogami with high caliber gunfire. (1841/4153)

Takao engages the nearest Nagara with her full broadside, but every shell misses. (4%)

With the destroyers lacking the range of engage their own escort of destroyers, Tenryu and Tatsuta engage the destroyers with their 203mm guns, missing with all of 6 shots. (3%)

The hostile Mogami is the only ship capable of returning fire, and angles to engage with her full complement of 155mm triple batteries. Atago sustains two 155mm hits (9%) on her bow from the 15-round salvo, but remains combat capable.

Verlaine: "Shall we get the wings airborne?"

"Are you sure we loaded the guns?" NDA says rather disappointed before inspecting Atago for damage.

"Doesn't matter, we'll get them this time!" the russian says again as he takes aim at the same target and fires.

"I don't think we'll need them, but just as a precaution, I suppose. Get them airborne and towards the enemy cluster."

"Same targets, lock and load."

Verlaine: "Copy, they're on the roll. Be advised - It'll take some time to get all of them airborne off the single runway."

Fuso engages the Mogami from 10 miles, and with a better angle, she scores 3 hits (31%) on the hostile flagship, tearing her apart from bow to stern as the 356mm shells penetrate the thinly armored heavy cruiser.

Atago sets her sights on the nearest light cruiser instead, and miraculously strikes the unfortunate Nagara with 4 of her 12 shell broadside (13%), immediately sinking her target with ease.

Takao targets the remaining Nagara, the rain of shells scoring 4 hits with her 155mm shells (10%), badly damaging the Nagara. (114/2302)

Tenryu and Tatsuta unleash full firepower at the closest Minekazes, and with only 2 hits with their 203mm guns (8%), the Minekaze sinks.

With the destroyer fleet finally in range, they unleash a variety of small caliber shells at the 3 remaining Minekazes. Benham and Ellet fail to score any hits with their 5 inch guns (4%), but Somers and Warrington successfully knock out a Minekaze with 3 hits (6%) of their 16 shell barrage.

The Mutsuki-class destroyers score a single hit with a 120mm shell, damaging one of the Minekazes. (526/923)

The lone Nagara and both hostile Minekazes re-engage your fleet with 140mm (11%) and 120mm (9%) shells, targeting Atago primarily. Two 120mm shells strike the broadside of Atago, further damaging her hull. (2269/4157)

Verlaine: "The first flight of 4 attack bombers are wheels up and in the air - they're loaded with torps!"

"Takao, sink that Nagara. The rest will target the minekazes."

Verlaine: "What's a... piz deck?"

Takao shreds apart the Nagara class with accurate 155mm gunfire (14%) from a mere 8 miles, giving the hostile Nagara no chance to evade the incoming barrage, sinking her right away.

Fuso (20%) and Atago (11%) sink the remaining Minekazes with their full broadsides of main batteries.

Verlaine: "Patrol fleet knocked out! We can expect a response from the northern bases within minutes - they aren't too far from here.

I'll deploy the rest of the planes as quickly as I can - second flight just took off, six flights to go."

"Really? Yeah, you're right. Probably heard the gunfires. Atago, go dock and get yourself fixed."

"Light cruisers, Fusou, escort Aratama as she scavenges the remains. The rest will guard Atago while she's in dock. Have the planes all takeoff and rendezvous above the dock."

Verlaine: "Copy, I'll keep you updated on their status."

As the fleet approaches the docks, they knock out all minor coastal installations easily with superior massed firepower before docking Atago for repairs.

The light cruisers and Fusou trail Aratama as she scavenges the hostile ships and whatever she can from small ground installations. It takes her some time, but eventually she returns with approximately 1800 KG more of nanomaterials.

Atago's repairs take a few minutes to complete as the cranes work on her damaged sections, undocking immediately as they complete. In the meantime, Verlaine successfully gets the entire air fleet airborne.

Verlaine: "20 torpedo-equipped and 12 bomb-equipped attack bombers in the skies.

Radar hasn't picked up any hostiles yet, but they're likely on their way."

Verlaine: "Verlaine copies all."

The fleet departs, maintaining standard fleet formation as everyone progresses northwards. The aircraft trail the fleet as well.

After a while of sailing northwards, the fleet encounters a hostile force headed southwards.

Verlaine: "15 miles, approaching - as expected. It's a substantial force of two Kongo-class battlecruisers with a large escort of six Furutaka-class heavy cruisers. No hostile aviation or other escorts detected.

I've updated your visual displays - the torpedo bombers will be marked by cyan, while the bomb-equipped aircraft will be marked by red. Hope it helps - out."


Travis: "This looks pretty bad. Destroyers will be on standby."

Christ... that better be the bulk of their forces."

"We're heading northwest until we're within 12 miles of the west cluster or until we've lost sight of them. Split the aircraft into 2 squadrons, each composed of 6 bombers and 10 torps. Squadron 1 will follow us, Squadron 2 will head southeast by 2.83 3 miles and hold."

Verlaine and the fleet executes your orders, splitting the aerial forces. It takes a couple of minutes to get into position.

Verlaine: "12 miles now. They're holding a steady southwest course, and will likely fire on us soon."

Travis: "Shouldn't we be sending our planes in already?!"

"The squadrons will target the Kongo of their respective cluster. Have squadron 1 dispatch from us and have their distance from the western cluster match squadron 2's distance from the eastern cluster. They will engage their targets once Squadron 1 is in position."

"The fleet will change course when within 11 miles of the western cluster to face northeast, and angle east until we can broadside the western cluster. We'll engage at 10.5 miles. Fusou, Atago and the light cruisers will fire at Kongo. The rest will target the nearest Furutaka when within range."

"Let me know if the clusters change their course."

Verlaine: "Diverting all aircraft for immediate anti-ship strike!"

The fleet maneuvers as ordered, angling in preparation to unleash broadsides at the nearest hostile group as they get closer. At 10.5 miles, the fleet's guns open up with a thunderous roar.

Fuso draws first blood and takes the initiative with her mighty 356mm guns, scoring 3 devastating hits on the Kongo-class, taking the hostile battlecruiser by complete surprise. Follow up shots from Atago and Tenryu prove ineffective, but Tatsuta brings it home with two critical hits that successfully sink the first heavy foe within the opening salvo.

Travis: "Here we go again. Destroyers, engaging!"

Takao commences the engagement of the hostile heavy cruisers, starting with the closest Furutaka-class heavy cruiser. She, along with the american destroyer group armed with 5 inch guns, only score two hits - one with a 155mm gun, and another with a 127mm gun, merely sufficient to damage the Furutaka, but comes nowhere close to sinking it.

Anti-aircraft fire begins threatening the air squadrons at 7.5 miles of distance, but only a single AA gun damages an allied bomber - no losses thus far.

The hostile fleet begins to return fire - The western cluster of Furutakas focus their guns on the well-equipped Atago, and the concentration of 18 203mm shells (11%) results in two solid hits. (2625/4157)

The eastern cluster maintains their course, allowing their full broadside of weapons to fire off their starboard side. With their Kongo commanding the salvo, they target the larger Fuso instead - Kongo's 8-shell barrage of 356mm shells (24%) scores three hits, severely damaging Fuso. The remaining Furutakas in the eastern cluster follow up with 18 more 203mm shells (13%) directed at Fuso, scoring another two hits. The combination of heavy shells penetrating the deck of Fuso instantly sets her ablaze. A moment later, the intense inferno catches up to her secondary armament munition storages, resulting in a massive magazine explosion that rips a massive hole in the port side of her hull, which begins flooding rapidly. This causes Fuso to list heavily to the port side at an extreme angle - likely damage far too severe to be repaired in battle.

Verlaine: "Holy shi--- We're hit! I... I don't think we can sav---"

The transmission cuts out abruptly as secondary explosions gradually tear Fuso apart. You note that the command room of Fuso is still relatively intact from the destructive chaos surrounding it aboard the stricken vessel - likely the location of Verlaine.
