I mean the question "Have you read and understood the rules?" The correct answer is within the rules and it is not "Yes." ; )

@PPC:

Unless the Patuxent had an upgrade in this timeline, she wouldn't be able to keep up with the Corona II, let alone overtake her, even at full steam. The Kennebec-class oilers have a speed of only 16.5 knots, compared to the Corona's 25 knots (cruising) and 30+ knots (flank).

Also, a ship can't brake quickly like a car, especially not a 21,750-ton tanker. If the Patuxent entered the harbor at full speed, she wouldn't slow down in time to avoid crashing into the dock.

Just saying, if a ship came into port like that IRL, there'd be a huge crunch and a hefty repair bill (for both the ship and the dock).

New question:
How long does the Harbor Festival run for (in IC days)? And is there a playbill/event schedule for each day?

Austria-Bohemia-Hungary wrote:that's a lot of UNREP's.

Not really, as she rarely spends more than a few days/weeks at sea, at a time. But the Corona II is indeed capable of refueling while underway, and on longer voyages she'll travel with naval escorts, including a nuclear icebreaker-tanker.

New Visayan Islands wrote:HM Spain probably has the logistical infrastructure to support that, I suppose.

Yes, that too.

[...]


I planned for the festival to run two to three days at most. There is no schedule like "11 o'clock: Aenlin Katz goes on stage.", but a rough idea about what happens when ICly (Aenlin Katz is planned for early afternoon in the Broodeheim Harbour Concert Hall, after Krageelen macht Laune!).

Query for scenery: on the beach or around it, is it likely that there may be a side route of some manner? Eiko and Kasem are having a small quibble and chase sequence, but it came to my attention that running in a kimono is a difficult task, and thus Eiko needs some sort of advantage... other suggestions aside from routes work as well.

If they have their quibble while they are still in Sannbann (nearby seaside resort town), there would be side streets and small alleyways. If they have their quibble when already in Broodeheim, there is always the crowd on the promenade Eiko could dive into.

If they're in Broodeheim: Eiko gets enough of a gap between them to have my guy walk in front of Kasem by accident, who gets a face full of 6' 3" rugby flanker?

disclaimer: idk if it was ever established whether the stall he, Sunna and Julia are at is actually on the promenade and getting crashed into by a femboy is not, I believe, something that would impress a girl (though being a nice guy and making sure he's okay might)
