Sorry about deleting my post. I just thought all places had already been taken.

Is there an open player slot, or am I SOL?

I don’t think you can run a nation off of ME3 references, bro. It’s probably best that you not have a country.

I’d more likely base it off Ghost Recon jackass.

When do I know it is my turn? And when it is, do I take my four moves to make my nation better and then a move to make an advance on a opposing land?

The four actions are separate from the two moves/attacks.

Turns are daily actions that are summarized in a posted report by yours truly.

Okay, so I sent you the actions I want to perform for this round via PM. That’s the right way to do that, correct?

Wicked.

Suffice to say, my air force has a few elite squadrons. The “Fortune Hunters” are a large scale unit designed to directly impact events on the front line. They are of course the single most powerful squadron that I possess.

“Angel Squadron”(Blazing Angels reference!) is a smaller unit intended for covert operations that must remain highly secret. Unfortunately, I cannot reveal anything significant about them.

The “Ghosts Of Razgriz” are the four best fighter pilots of the land, assembled into one unit. The “Fortune Hunters” may have the most power, and “Angel Squadron” the most important missions, but the “Ghosts of Razgriz” carry the highest level of prestige within the ranks. They are the best of the best, and everyone knows it. Getting into the unit has often been likened to becoming a Council Spectre. (Whoops, gratuitous Mass Effect reference.)

The army has its own highly elite, best of the best unit: “Ghost Recon”. Only the finest soldiers are selected to undergo “Evaluation” for entry into “Ghost Recon”, and 90% fail. But those that come out the other side are literally the finest, most skilled soldiers to ever serve. Less than one hundred members are ever active at once.

You just completely blabbed out your actions. I’m going to guess that you’ll be the first to die.

You are severely over-complicating this. It’s just a casual virtual board game.

Or is it.

But you’ve given everyone in the thread an idea of how powerful your military is. I wouldn’t be surprised if a few preemptive strikes will be made on your territory.

Really?

All I did was state the names and a little assorted trivia about a few highly elite units.

For all you know, my military could be next to nothing.

All of that pretty well demonstrates that you’re at least capable of powerful airstrikes.

I really don’t see how that argument was relative. Nair can say whatever he wants; his actions (and the intro report) will decide if he can even amass a force like that. It’s not like he chooses from the get go.

Do you have Inkscape for that? I’ve downloaded it recently because of my vexillology interest, but I’m having some trouble figuring it out.

I doubt anyone knows what this looks like, but you know those “Upgrade Tokens” from Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge?

Just put one on an arctic camouflage background.

Greenland is a tundra biome. The closest thing to jungles or woodlands there is the off yellow grass that grows in the more southerly coastal regions.

Fine. Edited my post.

Still, “green and brown” would look so much better than “shades of grey”.

I use MS Paint and Paint.net.
Flags are actually pretty easy. Other then adding symbols, it’s just simple geometric shapes and patterns.
Coat of Arms, however, are hard.

Do you have a pic? I can’t seem to find any on the Crimson Skies wiki or google images.
Also, do you want an army-style camo pattern, or is just the colours from the camo in another design good?

i want a flag with two tone yellow and green horizontal bars, and one of those no smoking thingies in the middle but with Finland instead of a cigarette.

EDIT: Yeah, found on DA.

As for the background, yes, military camo pattern. Digital pattern, arctic color set, to be precise.

Here’s my flag:

Blue represents culture, red represents nationalism, and white represents progress. Blue red and white are also pan-slavic colors, which is another reason why I used them.
