NASJAR 1 [Jet Racing Signups/Discussion]

Postby Jebslund » Tue Jul 31, 2018 5:24 am

Welcome to the first season of the Nationstates Association of Stock Jet Aircraft Racing (NASJAR)!

40-44 pilots from around the NS Omniverse will compete in a series of races over the next few weeks, earning points based on their position in each race. After the first round of races, the field eligible for the championship title will be halved. After the second round, one quarter will remain. And, in the final elimination round, there will be only six racers competing in a series of four races which will determine which two will go head-to-head for the Hartmann Cup! There will be sweat. There will be tears! And there will be one heck of a sweet party after the championship race. Be sure to tune in, and, jet pilots the Omniverse over, bring your A-game!

OOC:

I tend to be a bit of an aircraft enthusiast, and I saw that there weren't really all that many air racing threads, so I wanted to make one. I've actually been wanting to do this for a few months, but am only just now getting around to it. I know, poor show, but yeah.

So, the format for this is going to be a series of races based on the number of people who join, with at least one in each nation represented. For this reason, each nation participating may submit up to four pilots. I'm going to also ask that no puppets of nations already entered be entered at this time. If we need more entries, I will open up registrations to allow people to enter their puppets. I would also like to ask for a course to be submitted with the following information:
Name:
Course Record:
Course Description:
(Optional) Course History:


Pilots can simply be listed as a name and aircraft number, though anyone who wishes to can make up their own app and include biographical information for a (very small) RP bonus.

As for scorinatation, I will be using the same method Newmanistan used in NSSCRA 6:

Newmanistan wrote:[shnip]So, my trial and error stumbled upon this: Use the “qualifying” feature, instead of the “race” feature of xkoranate to get an average lap time for each driver. In using xkoranate, if I had just one lap of qualifying, the results were too random. If I had five, or higher, the results were too predictable. Three, was an ideal number. Here is a look at five scorinations using five drivers with skill levels applicable to the names I gave them, when doing a “3-lap” qualifying. 20.000 was entered as the track record with a 1.0 variance. This is something that could be changed from track to track.

(Using a Max-10pts: Legenary Driver had 10 pts, Very Successful had 8, Average had 6, Needing To Improve had 4, and Field Filler had 0).

1 Legendary Driver                20.117
2 Very Successful Driver 20.185
3 Average 20.579
4 Field Filler 20.884
5 Needing To Improve Driver 20.907

1 Very Successful Driver 20.160
2 Legendary Driver 20.491
3 Average 20.626
4 Needing To Improve Driver 20.736
5 Field Filler 20.877

1 Legendary Driver 20.126
2 Average 20.298
3 Very Successful Driver 20.361
4 Needing To Improve Driver 20.594
5 Field Filler 20.787

1 Legendary Driver 20.090
2 Average 20.548
3 Field Filler 20.826
4 Needing To Improve Driver 20.951
5 Very Successful Driver 21.101

1 Very Successful Driver 20.243
2 Average 20.276
3 Needing To Improve Driver 20.417
4 Legendary Driver 20.766
5 Field Filler 20.817



Therefore, I then average these five scorinations, to compute the final results based on average lap times. Now, it could be said that this was only a 15 lap race, but that’s not what I have in mind. Think of each scorination as being the drivers average lap time in each fifth of the race.

The final Results would be
1) Legendary (Avg: 20.318)
2) Very Successful (Avg: 20.410)
3) Average (Avg: 20.465)
4) Needing To Improve (Avg: 20.721)
5) Field Filler (Avg: 20.838)

Now, you may see that and think, “where was the randomness”, note that Very Successful and Average are very close, and there was two points of skill separating them. Everyone will start with the same skill (since there are no rankings now, but will be in the future); so it will be RP that differentiates drivers eventually.


It’s not “perfect” but I think it works for us.
[shnip]


As to the schedule, I plan to have cutoffs between 4 and 6pm each race day, and scorination done by around 8 (it's my first time using the program, so please bear with me.). The final race will take place in Jebslund. In the event one of my pilots makes it to the final race, someone else may scorinate if they wish, so long as they do not have any pilots in the final. In the event of a tie, number of victories will be the tiebreaker, with total of all averages (lower is better) being the tiebreaker tiebreaker.

With that all said, here's the rules:

1: No godmoding, unless allowed in a specific player's RP permissions.

2: Please keep fatalities to an absolute minimum.

3: Be creative, but don't go overboard with courses. Let's not have people racing through an active volcano, hmmm?

4: All jets are De Havilland Vampires (or your nation's equivalent), or similar. You have a bit of leeway here, but please keep it within that body type and engine count, as any deviation will be purely cosmetic.

5: Please keep course records under 15 minutes. EDIT: Xkoranate's qualifying function maxes out the track record at 999:999, meaning 999 seconds and 999 thousandths of a second, which works out to about 16 minutes and 39 seconds. For the sake of a nice, round number, I'm limiting this to 15 minutes.

6: This is very important: There will be a generous and diminishing RP bonus given for each race. This is cumulative. HOWEVER...

7: You will NOT receive a bonus for roleplays unrelated to air racing, sports of your nation in general, or the NASJAR. This is not to say off-course stuff is off limits. By all means, please do go into detail about your country's preparations for the races, politics surrounding the events, national foods and sights tourists might experience, off-track pilot/team shenanigans, etc. I just don't feel it is fair to award an RP bonus to a sporting event from a post about secret police bullshit and spy intrigue that has nothing to do with sports. If you're here to wax poetic about your country's methods of enhanced interrogation, go to II or F&NI. My sporting event is not your spy movie or Stalinist Russia simulator.

8: Have fun. This is mandatory.

Without further ado, let the signups commence!

The Jebsheim Experience
Course Record: 06:02:214
Lap number: 5
Course description: A race course situated near enough to the town of Jebsheim that a portion of the course runs through an area of it that shuts down for air races, as well as a nearby village. Strict speed limits are enforced in the inhabited areas, meaning any passing must be done on other areas of the course. Radar pylons linked to the regulation-mandated HUD in each pilot's aircraft mark the course, which, aside from the inhabited portions, mostly passes above beautiful countryside and over a quarry. While checkpoints do not have height requirements, any pylon which detects a speed violation will issue a time penalty the first and second time a racer's IFF tag is detected speeding. A third violation will result in a DQ (TG me if you wish to have a DNF reported as a DQ for this race).


Bettelmönchsschlucht
Course record: 05:25:770
Lap number: 10
Course description: Though short, this course is plotted to put pilots through their paces as thoroughly as course regulations allow, starting in the civilian sector of Dürrdürrwüste, at Tintenfischwüste airfield, and heading straight for the canyon system known as Hoffnungschlucht. From there, a strict height limit of the top of the canyon's walls is enforced from 500m into the canyon, and follows the winding canyon 60km to it's terminus in Der Bettelmönchsschlucht, The Mendicant's Ravine, then has racers fly an 11km loop before heading back through the canyon. Each trip through the canyon and loop around is a lap, creating an alternating forwards/backwards rhythm to the track, aided by the mandatory heads-up display. Pre-race, security personnel will secure all recording devices not specifically set up by race officials, all of which will be returned once the craft are back on the ground post-race. Repulsor fields set up in the canyon prevent collisions with the side walls, a feature added after a race involving "Sternenjäger" Kerman shortening one of her craft's wings on a wall.


Free Lands:
Name: Seabhcóir Aerodrome Racefield.
Course Record: 14:54 Minutes for one lap.
Course Description:
    The course is a 195 kilometre long course marked by pylons, which the racers have to fly through at prescribed heights, some of them a few metres off the ground, some considerably higher, taking them around the Town of Seabhcóir, the Town of Falconers on the edges of the Trossach, and a few outlying communities. The race is set for five laps. While there will be fast stretches, the most of the race will be spent in tight manoeuvres demanding for the skill of the pilot.
    Housing for pilots, aircraft and staff is provided by the Seabhcóir Aerodrome. Although no volcanoes are present, the cows on the fields are going to get quite a scare.
Course History:
    The Seabhcóir Aerodrome Racefield began its life as a track of flat earth used by airplanes for commercial flights and the young SDF-Army Aviation Group, which also included several fighters. These fighters were the first racers here as well, as the pilots of the SDF-Army tested their new aircraft in every way they could. It was also here, that the SDF-Army had their first loss by aircraft accident, a pilot crashing with deadly results.
    In 1936, the Aerodrome was expanded with concrete runways and massive hangars, the SDF paying for half of it, private investors for the other. It soon became a hub for commercial air traffic and, in some aspects, also the pilot school for most of the Free Lands' early airlines. The Sensational Siblings Stunt Flight had its origins here in 1937, and their last performance in 1962 was here as well.
    In 1944, the SDF-Army left their part of the Aerodrome and left it all in the civilian hands of the town, which had begun to appreciate the airport and the jobs it created. It was also in 1944, that the first official air race was held here, the Fabhcun Trophy, a race from Seabhcóir to Silverport. Since then, this trophy is flown for every three years, for the next time in 2019.
    But also smaller air races, air shows and stunt shows are held here, with the locals saying, that it's a good day, when a plane falls onto one of the fields and a bad day, when it falls onto a house.


Name: Mianach Air Racing Course in Gaineamh, Oileánra-Archipelago.
Course Record: 7:01:789 on the Fabhcun.
Course Description:
    Over the picturesque tropical archipelago that is the Oileánra-Archipelago, this course itself is relatively short, the most of the pylons over open water bound by ships or buoys, but its length and difficulty stems from the fact, that these pylons aren't simply to pass, but the contestant has to perform aerobatics while doing so, failure to do so resulting in hefty time penalties, mistakes while doing so resulting in smaller time penalties. For some teams, logistics might be a problem as well, as the Gaineamh Aerodrome does not have runways for larger freight planes - however, nearby Dumhach has a large harbour and the Gaineamh Aerodrome includes a seaplane port.
    One of the tracks sponsors, Silverport Dockyards Limited, has agreed to put a vessel or two of its yard fleet at the disposal of the contestants in need of such a service.
Course History:
    Much like Seabhcóir Aerodrome, Gaineamh Aerodrome is a former air base of the SDF, which built the place in 1936 and left in 1956 in favour of Dumhach Airfield. For a decade, the runways and hangars stood still and silent, until an enterprising soul decided to reopen it in 1968 after renovations from 1966 onwards. With a new tower and other installations, the air field became a famous spot for forays into the Archipelago from tourists by air, the first Mianach Air Race being held there in 1970.
    During the Second Vellenge War in 1983, the aerodrome was shut down and hosted a flight of Seachmall Fighter-Bombers - rumours persist to this day, that they were placed there to drop nuclear weapons on Lutetii, should Operation Summer Sun fail, but the SDF regularly declines to comment such rumours.
    Renovations in 2009 and 2010 added a number of new hangars, a small firefighting station and two small hotel complexes, one for day-visitors, the other for crews. In 2016, a Monarcha M-22 Faoilean Transporter crashed on the runway and burnt out, with three of the crew and two of the passengers dying, while one crew member and twelve passengers survived with a variety of injuries.


Frozen Forest:
Name: A Race Against Winter
Course Record: 06:20:12
Course Description: Pilots begin the race on the Second Fjollum Regional Airstrip in The Western Territories Region of The Frozen Forest. Pilots take off using the strip and immediately find themselves over the very forest that The Frozen Forest is named for. The deciduous greenery below is beautiful and marks the safer part of the course. There is no height requirement for this part of the course, however it is ill advised to fly above 600m due to the dangerous turbulence. The first checkpoint of the course is the Greater Fjollum Mountain Peaks. Pilots must pass through the opening between the Peaks and may not fly over them. After passing through, the turbulence grows and pilots have the choice of dropping lower to the ground or remaining high in the air. Pilots must make a half circle turn in order to pass beside the beautiful and dangerous Erikson Falls. After passing by the Waterfall Pilots must make a dash forwards until they reach yet another set of twin peaks, which they must pass through once again. After passing through they must make another half circle turn and begin to return to the Second Fjollum Regional Airstrip. This final half-circle turn involves some of the worse turbulence in The Frozen Forest, Pilots are advised not to take it too sharply. There are 11 Laps throughout the course.
(Optional) Course History: A Race Against Winter was brought about not for Jet Racing, but for old decommissioned Fighter Planes to race. Officially it began in 1973, unofficially in 1968. After annual races for thirty-two years the organization FPFF finally decided to retire the course after the number of pilots crashing on the final stretch of the course grew to about six pilots a race. It was deemed too dangerous for amateur pilots to handle, and another group, the FFJRO bought the course. The FFJRO was a Jet Racing Organization that televises the races every year to a niche but loyal group of followers. It is sustained by donations as well as merchandise sales mainly. The FFJRO has cancelled this years races so that the Course can be used in NASJAR.

Jebslund is a nation of kerbals ruled by Emperor Jebediah Kerman. We reject tyranny, believing that rights should be protected, though we also believe said rights end where the rights of others begin.

Shockingly, we *do* use NS stats except in the Kerbin roleplay, with the exception of lifespan.
Singular sapient: Jebslunder
Plural Sapient: Jebslunden
Singular/Plural nonsapient: Kermanic
Note: When a verb can logically only be done by the sapient using/piloting/holding the object in question (a plane spotting someone (only the pilot can do that), a brush styling hair (a person has to be using it), a general's orders (a rank cannot give orders. A person *holding* said rank, on the other hand, can), then the appropriate demonym for the number of sapients is used.

Hi, Jebs,
I'm onboard. Although I'm not too much of a fan of setting everyone on the good old Vampire (imagine how much more boring Formula 1 would be, if everyone drove the same car...), I would love to participate in this, if you don't mind.

Name: Marla Eitleoir of the Tribe of Fingal.
Year of birth: 1995.
Aircraft Number: 14.
Appearance: Here.

Marla comes from a family of aviators, some of them military aviators, others not. Her grandfather, Commander Finnegan Cailpís of the Tribe of Monaghan, was one of the pilots flying the Fabhcun, the first jet fighter in service with the SDF, while her mother, Gwen Eitleoir worked as a test pilot for Sciathan for a long time.
She was, quite literally, born on an airfield.
Making her Glider-License with 10, prop-plane license with 15 and Jet License with 20, it was clear, that she saw her own future in the skies and not on the ground. She soon switched to motorized airplanes, developing a liking for flying vintage fighterplanes. Although she was often asked, whether or not she wanted to join an airline or even the SDF instead of flying as a hobby aside from school, she always scoffed at the very thought and idea...
...only to, upon graduation, join a stunt team as their pilot for everything with wings and propellers. Her grandfather, upon that message reaching him, laughed out loud.
As part of that team, she worked with them in several movies, both as an actress, aircamerawoman and stunt-pilot, and is scheduled to work with them in several to come, amongst them as a seaplane pilot in the film version of Abhcan's Little Daggers.
Racing with planes is nothing new to her as well, from her first forays into that after being spurred on by fellow flight students to several air races in the Free Lands, she had participated in quite a few. Her own personal lucky number, the 14, has stayed with her through most of it. This will be her first series of races, though. She knows the Vampire as well and likes to fly her.

I play PT, MT and a bit FT. I am into character-RPs.
And I have a rather detailed factbook (forever WiP).
My people are called the Selkie, the nation is usually called the Free Lands in MT-settings. Thanks.

Tag! I'll turn this into an app in a bit, rest assured.
Well Hi, i joined NS on Feb 1st, 2013 under the name Aztec of america and have been on Nationstates since. I tend to frequent the Portal to the Multi-universe. Recently i've been trying to develop The Frozen Forest, so if you want a historical, trade or diplomatic relationship, shoot me a telegram.

I don't bite, so don't be afraid to say hello.

Pilots:

Flotillenadmiral Henry "Die Achte" Kerman, pilot of #08
Born in in 1899, Henry Kerman was the 8th of 10 children born to a couple in the town that would later be known as Jebsheim. At age 15, he signed up for courses which offered pre-training for military service, choosing fighter training. At 18, upon completion of the courses, he voluntarily enlisted in the Wasserarmee as an escort pilot, starting off in the DKEM-3mv light fighter, then moving on to the PLF-01S Spatz, a single-engine prop job used for escort duty, and then the JF-01S(DJEF/TB) Maschinenteufel line and then JF-02S(DJEF/JB) Maschinenteufel-II lines. His nickname/callsign, Die Achte (The Eighth), was given to him by squadmates because he would always introduce himself as the eighth of his siblings.

Sadly, his career would see him promoted out of active duty, with most of his real-world flying occurring during various furloughs and days off over the years, though he never let his piloting skills lapse, keeping up not only with his favorite craft, the Maschinenteufel, but also with any new escort fighters that came along over the years.

More recently, however, Henry had heard of a new jet racing series, and requested (and was granted) time off to compete. Henry will be flying his personal Maschinenteufel, which has been modified to bring it into compliance with NASJAR regulations.

Hauptmann Edmund "Derpol" Kerman, retired, pilot of #13
Born in 1902, Edmund Kerman is the son of a mechanic and a teacher in the city of Westende, known at the time as Dreichtsheim, who would move to what would soon be known as Jebsheim in 1904. Young Edmund Kerman began school in Jebsheim, where he would, partway through Hauptschule, meet and form a more-or-less friendly rivalry with a younger boy by the name of Henry Kerman, first on the sports field, then in the air as they both, on the same day, enlisted in the Wasserarmee. As escort pilots, the two would often compare achievements and confirmed kill counts until Edmund retired at the rank of Hauptmann in 1952 to take over his father's shop after a StuG-IIIG he was hunting managed to turn the tables (reportedly, Edmund's father's last act was to respectfully tip his hat to the StuG-IIIG with a proud grin), but he kept up with his rival's exploits and often served as a source of encouragement and gluteal thermal energy in the years after.

When Edmund heard his rival was entering the new NASJAR series, he lost no time in preparing to enter himself, modifying and tuning his Maschinenteufel to within NASJAR regulations and entering it and himself in the competition, deciding he wasn't about to let himself miss this opportunity to fire up the old rivalry.

Flora "Sternenjäger" Kerman, professional racer, pilot of #00
Born in Kermania in 1987, Flora Kerman is the eldest of the current generation of a family with a proud military tradition, and even has siblings in the Luft-Raum Armeekorps and Wasserarmee. Flora herself, however, was never interested, and only enlisted before her mandatory report date because of the benefits it offered. After her conscription, Flora went immediately into air racing, racing just about anything that flew, her love of the air and disdain for violence satisfied by the rush of racing. Her entry onto the Jebslund team in NASJAR was both out of love for the sport and to prove to the "lifers" that a "part-timer" like her could still outfly them any day of the week.

Flora has a bit of a chip on her shoulder, having spent most of her life being seen as the 'black sheep' of the family (with the exception of her grandfather, Rear Admiral Heinz "Ketschup" Kerman, who understands her disdain full well), and feels as if she has to prove herself to be taken seriously. She is very competitive, and her piloting reflects this, her style being more aggressive than average. Her Vampire, which has been flown in other races as well, also reflects this, with various dings and scratches that didn't quite buff out scattered on its surface, the result of slight misjudgments in how close she could fly to something without hitting it.

It's based on the fact that, while there's variation within the cars, NASCAR uses a standard car type (hence the national equivalent and players having leeway.) As long as it's a similar body type, I'm not going be fussy. Like I said, it's mostly cosmetic.

Course description: A race course situated near enough to the town of Jebsheim that a portion of the course runs through an area of it that shuts down for air races, as well as a nearby village. Strict speed limits are enforced in the inhabited areas, meaning any passing must be done on other areas of the course. Radar pylons linked to the regulation-mandated HUD in each pilot's aircraft mark the course, which, aside from the inhabited portions, mostly passes above beautiful countryside and over a quarry. While checkpoints do not have height requirements, any pylon which detects a speed violation will issue a time penalty the first and second time a racer's IFF tag is detected speeding. A third violation will result in a DQ (PM me if you wish to have a DNF reported as a DQ for this race).

I'm onboard. Although I'm not too much of a fan of setting everyone on the good old Vampire (imagine how much more boring Formula 1 would be, if everyone drove the same car...), I would love to participate in this, if you don't mind.
Please keep in mind, that this app is WiP! For example, the racetrack is still missing, but it will come!

Name: Marla Eitleoir of the Tribe of Fingal.
Year of birth: 1995.
Aircraft Number: 14.
Appearance: Here.

Marla comes from a family of aviators, some of them military aviators, others not. Her grandfather, Commander Finnegan Cailpís of the Tribe of Monaghan, was one of the pilots flying the Fabhcun, the first jet fighter in service with the SDF, while her mother, Gwen Eitleoir worked as a test pilot for Sciathan for a long time.
She was, quite literally, born on an airfield.
Making her Glider-License with 10, prop-plane license with 15 and Jet License with 20, it was clear, that she saw her own future in the skies and not on the ground. She soon switched to motorized airplanes, developing a liking for flying vintage fighterplanes. Although she was often asked, whether or not she wanted to join an airline or even the SDF instead of flying as a hobby aside from school, she always scoffed at the very thought and idea...
...only to, upon graduation, join a stunt team as their pilot for everything with wings and propellers. Her grandfather, upon that message reaching him, laughed out loud.
As part of that team, she worked with them in several movies, both as an actress, aircamerawoman and stunt-pilot, and is scheduled to work with them in several to come, amongst them as a seaplane pilot in the film version of Abhcan's Little Daggers.
Racing with planes is nothing new to her as well, from her first forays into that after being spurred on by fellow flight students to several air races in the Free Lands, she had participated in quite a few. Her own personal lucky number, the 14, has stayed with her through most of it. This will be her first series of races, though. She knows the Vampire as well and likes to fly her.

It's based on the fact that, while there's variation within the cars, NASCAR uses a standard car type (hence the national equivalent and players having leeway.) As long as it's a similar body type, I'm not going be fussy. Like I said, it's mostly cosmetic.


Ah, I see. Thanks for the info.
I'm currently working on the racetrack. It's doing to be one fun ride!

EDIT: And edited the track into the original post.

Just a heads up: Signups are still open, and will remain so until the 15th. If there's not enough by then, I'll run the event with what we have and give everyone a week to add more pilots and courses as/if needed.

I'm considering entering this, but I don't have pilots or course info ready to go. I may come back later.

Take as much time as you need! You've got a couple weeks before the cutoff, and, if you do decide to join for sure and need a little time, I don't necessarily mind waiting.

As to the rule, yeah, I made it because seeing those kinds of RP being posted and (near as I could tell) getting credit both irritated me and factored into losing interest in a couple events. If it's related to the event at hand, it's not so bad, but it's a bit jarring to be reading through accounts of games, preparations and negotiations for events, and rosters and sports newsletters, then suddenly be reading some random general's thoughts as he's trying to escape from Not!Stalin's Not!Gulag.

If I miss the deadline, go ahead without me. It might mean I just got too busy. Or that I'm in Peru. I'm going on vacation later this month, but if I get a sign-up put together before I leave and I come back to RP when I get home, the timing will probably be OK.

Wonderful, thank you, Jebs!
I agree about the Rule 7. One should always keep the posts close to the topic at hand, but at the same time, one should not leave the side of the race track away - I, for example, plan to write about how Seabhcóir prepares itself for the Big Day, about Marla's nervousness about her home course and so on. A bit on the side, but still close enough to the topic to not be counted as hijacking the thread (I hope, at least...).
I play PT, MT and a bit FT. I am into character-RPs.
And I have a rather detailed factbook (forever WiP).

After doing some tinkering, I've adjusted Rule 5. Please give it a read.

Unfortunately, Selks, that means I'll have to ask that Seabhcóir Aerodrome Racefield's record be trimmed down to 15 minutes or less, please. My apologies. As to whether or not your idea counts as threadjacking, that'd be a definite, "No, you're good". Nothing in that that I can see really even comes close to the line. Half of Sherpa's posts in NSSCRA 6 were about the Empire's internal cultural politicking (the idea within some circles that racing wasn't civilised enough that the government should allow it to become a "thing") and scrambled preparation for their race, and, to be quite honest, that's what I had in mind when I said off-track race-related stuff is fine. I personally love when sporting stories show those kinds of insights into how the sports in question impact life outside of the events themselves and what the people involved in the events get up to off-track.

I've cut down both the length of the record lap and the length of the track itself to let it make more sense.
And thank you for the hearty approval! ; )

Name: Dakov Weimar
Age: 19
Appearance:
Image

Gender: Male
Country of Birth: The Frozen Forest
Jet Name: The Flying Fox
Jet Number: 09
Theme: Never Back Down
Biography: Dakov is the son of Otto Weimar and Gudrid Weimar, formerly Gudrid Björk. His great grandfather, Torfi was a celebrated and great Air-Racing Champion, though his grandfather and father never took up the sport. His father composed a plethora of journals and self-guides. As a young boy, Dakov came upon these treasures while exploring his fathers attic and fell in love with it. He attended his first Air-Race at the age of six, and his father saw the young boys potential. As a former member of the Royal House, his mother Gudrid received an allowance monthly from the state. This money was put towards his training and his future career. His first plane was called The Black Lynx, and at the age of 16 he won his first competition in the Western Territories.

He crashed two competitions later, at the age of 17 and a half. What was salved from the Black Lynx was added to his new plane, The White Lynx. He would go on to win a number of Frozen Forestrian competitions, and with the announcement of the WARC, Dakov knew that it was fate that he compete. Unfortunately the Race was seemingly postponed and he was left with an overwhelming dream and no way to reach it. Then came the announcement of NASJAR, though this event used jets which his family could never afford.

The Frozen Forestrian Government caught wind of their story as it was looking for competitors to put into NASJAR. They agreed to train him for six months prior to the events beginning, and that has been his life or the past six months. He is ready to tackle this much more difficult competition and bring honor and glory to his house, his family and his country.

Name: Armati Toscano
Age: 25
Appearance:
Image

Gender: Male
Country of Birth: The Frozen Forest
Jet Name: The Flying Circus
Jet Number: 10
Theme: Dreams
Biography: Armati was born as the son of a member of the house of Toscano. The Toscano house was born in Italy but soon came to The Frozen Forest in the 1700's, becoming a trusted family that ended up forming the largest circuses in the country. They dominated the occupation, but a life as a acrobat didn't interest the young Armati. He was someone who wanted to fly, and faster than ever before. Jet Racing is a passion of his and he has been doing it for years in The Frozen Forest. There aren't many competitors so when he learned of an International Competition he petitioned TFF's government to allow him to compete for his nation, they gratefully accepted.

Name: Arnbjorn Hjolfson
Age: 22
Appearance:
Image

Gender: Male
Country of Birth: The Frozen Forest
Jet Name: The McClark
Jet Number: 11
Theme: Dragon Rider
Biography: Arnbjorn is the son of a Norwegian and a Frozen Forestrian, both of which were poor. He didn't care much for plains when he was younger, preferring instead to sail the seas with his parents. He dreamed of owning a fishing ship one day, but alas fate stepped in and he was injured at the tender age of fourteen. The injury wasn't significant, but what it did do was put him in the hospital. For six months his only entertainment was listening to the stories of another patient, a jet pilot who had retired and was suffering a horrible bout with cancer. The two become friends despite the huge difference in age. The Patient died at the age of 77, he was the oldest Jet Pilot in TFF and his successor would be Arnbjorn. He promised that he would win an international competition in the name of Henry McClark, his best friend. He trained and trained and won every regional competition he could find, there weren't many. Then he heard of NASJAR, his opportunity to honor a friend had come.

Name: April Baustein
Age: 46
Appearance:
Image

Gender: Female
Country of Birth: The Frozen Forest
Jet Name: The Skybear
Jet Number: 12
Theme: Brave
Biography: April is one of the older jet pilots in The Frozen Forestrian Air Force. She didn't receive her beloved and honored status as the most respected of those pilots in the force through good looks. Since she was a little girl she's been in the air. Her father was a pilot before her during the Cold War, and before that her Grandfather was a pilot in World War Two, and before him her Great Grandfather was a pilot in World War One. She won her first regional race at the age of 12, where it was technically illegal for her to compete. She went on winning competitions till she was eighteen.

She joined the Frozen Forestrian Airforce and served diligently. Year after year slipped by and her skills improved. She began to innovate and soon developed new designs for Jets, which she ended up piloting on numerous occasions. When she was 28 she married a man by the name of Derek Baustein and over the next decade they had four kids. Those kids are still just that, kids. When she heard about the NASJAR she realized that she was getting older and that if she was going to ever compete like she was young again, it had to be here. Her kids are rooting for her, as are all her friends and colleagues in the Air Force. She's intends to prove to the world that even though she's older, she can compete with younger pilots all the same.

Name: A Race Against Winter
Course Record: 06:20:12
Course Description: Pilots begin the race on the Second Fjollum Regional Airstrip in The Western Territories Region of The Frozen Forest. Pilots take off using the strip and immediately find themselves over the very forest that The Frozen Forest is named for. The deciduous greenery below is beautiful and marks the safer part of the course. There is no height requirement for this part of the course, however it is ill advised to fly above 600m due to the dangerous turbulence. The first checkpoint of the course is the Greater Fjollum Mountain Peaks. Pilots must pass through the opening between the Peaks and may not fly over them. After passing through, the turbulence grows and pilots have the choice of dropping lower to the ground or remaining high in the air. Pilots must make a half circle turn in order to pass beside the beautiful and dangerous Erikson Falls. After passing by the Waterfall Pilots must make a dash forwards until they reach yet another set of twin peaks, which they must pass through once again. After passing through they must make another half circle turn and begin to return to the Second Fjollum Regional Airstrip. This final half-circle turn involves some of the worse turbulence in The Frozen Forest, Pilots are advised not to take it too sharply. There are 11 Laps throughout the course.
(Optional) Course History: A Race Against Winter was brought about not for Jet Racing, but for old decommissioned Fighter Planes to race. Officially it began in 1973, unofficially in 1968. After annual races for thirty-two years the organization FPFF finally decided to retire the course after the number of pilots crashing on the final stretch of the course grew to about six pilots a race. It was deemed too dangerous for amateur pilots to handle, and another group, the FFJRO bought the course. The FFJRO was a Jet Racing Organization that televises the races every year to a niche but loyal group of followers. It is sustained by donations as well as merchandise sales mainly. The FFJRO has cancelled this years races so that the Course can be used in NASJAR.

Good morning,
with the OP's kind permission, I would like to add two pilots and a course:

Name: Raidri Leathchúpla of the Tribe of Navan.
Year of birth: 1988.
Aircraft Number: 41.
Appearance: Here.

Raidri was still a baby, when he was born as the oldest of four children, the other three being sisters and models and actresses, he was left to pursue the family-business, the Leathchupla Airlines, a small airline with a few planes, mostly small passenger planes - not that he minded, though.
From early childhood on, he spent much of his free time on planes and near planes on the airfield near Riverwood, where the main base of operations for his family's business was, learning about them and their intricacies. When he was old enough to make his flight license for powered aircraft, it was basically a formality. But he wasn't satisfied with just the small passenger haulers his family's business had - he wanted bigger, further, faster.
The SDF didn't want him, which was returned in kind, but he still wasn't satisfied, which was why he turned to air racing as soon as someone suggested it. He cut impressive figures into the sky, first with propeller aircraft, then with jets, even managing to get licenses for the Fabhcun, the Seachmall and the Gaoth, jet aircraft formerly in services of the SDF, as well as the Vampire.
What began as a hobby slowly turned into an obsession, much to the worries of his parents, who he works for - technically. Wouldn't it be for him having his plane in company colours and being good at it (thus generating positive marketing), they would have fired him long ago... their main hope is, that he may find a racer one day, who slows him down, reminds him of the fact, that there are important things on the ground as well...
...preferably a female racer, for they want their grandkids one of these days.


Name: Amy Ollmhór of the Tribe of Dundalk.
Year of Birth: 1992.
Aircraft Number: 42.
Appearance: Office Lady.

In the, admittedly small, air-racing circles in the Free Lands, Amy Ollmhór of the Tribe of Dundalk is a bit of an oddity, mainly because she is, by heart, not a pilot or aviatrix, but an actress (she is planned to appear on screen with Marla in the film-version of Abhcan's Little Daggers as a woman from Shella, her own birthplace), model and trained IT-Specialist. Air racing for her is, indeed, just a hobby between jobs and shootings.
Despite that, she has passion and will to win, a certain drive and passion, that many other hobbyists lack.
She has started out with flying small propeller-planes, including her training on a Giodróg and several air races on the Shane Airworks Piongain Seaplane Fighter, with her jet license and training on the Vampire being only a recent addition.
In 2018, she ranked fifth in the Mianach Air Race, Jet Division, and third in the Propeller Division.

Many a joke has been cracked about her 'fuel tanks', which she sees rather calm, often joking with them, that she has to have a few metres more of runway due to the additional mass.


Name: Mianach Air Racing Course in Gaineamh, Oileánra-Archipelago.
Course Record: 7:01:789 on the Fabhcun.
Course Description:
    Over the picturesque tropical archipelago that is the Oileánra-Archipelago, this course itself is relatively short, the most of the pylons over open water bound by ships or buoys, but its length and difficulty stems from the fact, that these pylons aren't simply to pass, but the contestant has to perform aerobatics while doing so, failure to do so resulting in hefty time penalties, mistakes while doing so resulting in smaller time penalties. For some teams, logistics might be a problem as well, as the Gaineamh Aerodrome does not have runways for larger freight planes - however, nearby Dumhach has a large harbour and the Gaineamh Aerodrome includes a seaplane port.
    One of the tracks sponsors, Silverport Dockyards Limited, has agreed to put a vessel or two of its yard fleet at the disposal of the contestants in need of such a service.
Course History:
    Much like Seabhcóir Aerodrome, Gaineamh Aerodrome is a former air base of the SDF, which built the place in 1936 and left in 1956 in favour of Dumhach Airfield. For a decade, the runways and hangars stood still and silent, until an enterprising soul decided to reopen it in 1968 after renovations from 1966 onwards. With a new tower and other installations, the air field became a famous spot for forays into the Archipelago from tourists by air, the first Mianach Air Race being held there in 1970.
    During the Second Vellenge War in 1983, the aerodrome was shut down and hosted a flight of Seachmall Fighter-Bombers - rumours persist to this day, that they were placed there to drop nuclear weapons on Lutetii, should Operation Summer Sun fail, but the SDF regularly declines to comment such rumours.
    Renovations in 2009 and 2010 added a number of new hangars, a small firefighting station and two small hotel complexes, one for day-visitors, the other for crews. In 2016, a Monarcha M-22 Faoilean Transporter crashed on the runway and burnt out, with three of the crew and two of the passengers dying, while one crew member and twelve passengers survived with a variety of injuries.

We could have done that, yes. Didn't think of that one...

A couple problems: Because of the way Xkoranate works, every course needs a course record. The other issue is that, if you want to have a race in the series, you need to have at least one pilot competing.

I would also like you to describe any limitations or rules specific to the race, if there are any.

You are more than welcome to! One small problem, though: 11 is already in use by Arnbjorn Hjolfson of Frozen Forest. Either Raidri or Arnbjorn will need to fly under a different number. Amy and the course are fine, however. Additional runway is not guaranteed. ;P

Speaking of: Frozen Forest, hold on to that Forestrian Selkie idea. Depending on whether or not Sherpa gets in before the deadline and Northwest Kalactin decides to add more pilots, I may open up the pilot limit to 8.
