One of the most important roles I have filled was the foremost military advisor to President Lincoln and his favorite General. Here is a Daguerrotype of me with the President and his security chief. We were at Antietam, and Alan and I were of the opinion that things did not look good. You can see here Alan Pinkerton reaching for his flask of Southern Comfort while I am reaching for my flask of Arcturian Brandy. Abe, if I may call him that, would have none of it.

What?  Comment?  Sorry I was hip deep in Logistics in the Pacific.  I forgot we had a war going on.

I know for a fact that Raiden has many a tale to tell. I understand his diaries contain detailed information about every house of the rising Sun from Singapore to Tortuga, including their records of laundry expenditures. Do not underestimate this man.

Well, we are into April, and we have sieges everywhere, Batavia, Soerabaja, Singers, PM, Noumea.  In china he has pulled back from Changsa but is still contesting my entry into Sian.  I have a feeling some of these will break loose soon.  I wil say that those lizards are awfully good at the telephone pole defence, but I think alot of the much slower ground combat pace is the stacking limits.

Well, the moment you've all been dreading has arrived. I'm back.

I almost achieved something in common with Long John Silver, and I'm not referring to his bird, Captain Flint. I shiverrrred me timberrrrr. Well not actually. I had a thrombosis in my leg and came close to losing it. Everything's fine, but I may have had a slight personality shift. Arrrrrrrrr! I'm sure I'll be back to my green scaly self soon.





I must warn Raiden though. I would've whupped yo ass on one leg same as two!

4/16/42 A few days ago Port Moresby fell with the surrender of all allied troops. For the second time (the first claim was withdrawn) Mutsu is reported sunk, but I don't believe it for a second. At the time of his first landings of troops at PM, I had about 320 mines in that harbor. To date I have only received one report of one mine hit on one ship. I believe it was CL Katori. It also was reported (some days later near Milne Bay) that she sank due to a mine, but I believe the great majority of the damage to her was done by CD guns at PM. Perhaps Raiden will give us some idea if there were more mine hits and on what scale. Pretty please?

4/17/42 Singapore falls with surrender of all forces. They were flat out of supply for over 3 weeks, but Raiden just kept bombing and bombing.

4/21/42 Raiden has parked a substantial force at Noumea for quite some time, but has yet to assault. The KB appears to be leaving but I doubt for long. I expect something to happen here soon.

Current situation in northern Australia.




Raiden's home is apparently overrun with relatives (the horror!) there for the holidays, so our pace has slowed to one turn per day.

Here's something I've been sitting on since the first week of February. I think it's safe to show it now. Raiden had his KB covering a landing at Koumac and decided to send it a bit to the south of New Caledonia, where it encountered a large convoy of empty ships (of mixed types, if I recall correctly) headed to the West Coast. It sank quite a few of them but let the rest continue on without pursuit. I had quite a bit of stuff at Aukland at the time, and thought about evacuation in case he came further south. I only pulled the most valuable ships (warships) but left a lot of other ships there. The next day he had moved closer to NZ so I ordered a complete evacuation, grouping ships in TFs according to their max speeds. The following two screen shots show the situation on the next day and the day after that.

I think I know what you're referring to, and I would agree, if I were human. You must remember though, that we Gorn have no anuses. We simply recycle the same old s*** over and over again.

Some of you may have found that to be humorous. I have delved deep into the many philosophies of this world, both past and present. I have understood the subtleties of Hegel's Phenomenology, I have removed the pollutants from Kant's Critique of Pure Reason, I have tested the theorems of Virgilius'es Georgics, but I have yet to answer the central question of "What would I do without me?" The very Earth hangs in the balance to that question.

At that time I saw maybe 3 of the fleeing TF's, and thought there might be others, but unlike reality, my digital samurai follow orders, and covered the landing.  I was more worried about a SCTF raid on the landings than sinking some more of the infinite allied transports.  Today Batavia falls, Soerabaja and Noumea are left, with Darwin coming under attack in the next few days.

Under the smileys on the left of the text box, there is a little line that says "more smileys.." It doesn't look like hypertext but it is; when you click on it it brings up a screenful of alternate smileys. Selecting any of them puts them where your cursor last was in the text box. Have fun with them!

I see. This is my outlook on the world. No, wait, this is. No, let me collect myself. Life is a veil of tears. Oh, what the heck, I can't keep track of whatever it is I'm supposed to be pontificating about, let's just settle on this as an example of my self awareness.

Yes, I know the reference is to a "vale of tears", but 'veil of tears' speaks to me of subjective perception without which there is no anything.

Those would, no doubt, be crocodile tears, which are only shed when it bites. Go get 'em, Gornster!

4/30/42 Raiden has now assaulted Noumea for the first time. The results follow. I don't know what all he has up his sleeves, but I expect this to be interesting. The overlapping green and red ship icons at Noumea are some of my subs and one of his.

5/2/42 Japanese at Noumea merely bombard the past couple of days, can't say I blame them. The KB has appeared North of New Caledonia, can a fresh landing force be far away?




Stay tuned to this channel.

Nice job by the lizards hitting KB in bad weather off Noumea.  Midway!  My only complaint is the piss poor performance of the kates and vals, hardly scoring any hits, while being the absolute best pilots in the IJN.  So goes the RNG.

5/3/42 Carrier battle! On 5/2 my searchplanes had spotted the KB north of New Caledonia. To the best of my knowledge, Raiden had not spotted me. I put my CVs where I thought best and began biting my scales. Here is the screen shot from after the battle, which is pretty much where things were when the battle started.
