I gotta say, TurtleShroomers and Macks fighting along GPH mercenaries is going to be rather amusing. Something tells me they're going to spend as much time trying to shoot each other as fighting Lynxcians.

....I forgot GPH soldiers would be fighting.

Oh I pity that poor Asahinian drill Sargent.

When a head of state enters the room, tradition dictates that a "royal anthem" (their theme song) plays at their entry.

nation=turtleshroom/detail=factbook/id=282732
^ This is (will be) the Royal Anthem for the Tsars of TurtleShroom.

Not my finest work by far, but the war must progress:

Also, after three years, I have finally managed to produce Halden Hadwyn's mask. It has taken me all day, but this is about as close as I could get. I hope this assists IC visualisations, especially with the War of Steel:

Additionally, I am still waiting for content for the Land of Power video. I have some parts for Mackonia and obviously Lynxcia. Yet, this is not the Land of Power! I desperately need information on possible sources for Land of Power national content. Any films, drawings, images, video games, clips, movies, audio, television programmes, specific scenes, paintings, maps, etc are what I need. After all, we cannot have a Land of Power video with just two nations! Feel free to telegram me.

Alright Lynxcia, I'll be the first to assist you.

Below is a link of how I imagine the Pirate King's throne room.

I will add more later.

Hadwyn's mask is much more intimidating than I imagined, but alas, it is quite a helpful illustration.

When it concerns the LOP video, I have a few sources that I believe represent the Commonwealth well, but I am also a small artist, so I can produce any semi-specific request that you'd need. I already have a few images readily available, but I wish to rescan them and relink them, as they were taken with a camera instead of a proper scanner, and I had no idea that Imgur was blocked for some until Daru brought it up one day.

So until I manage to rescan and reupload my illustrations, have this helpful-but-limited warship CGI:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ipODvsI1sCk

Wargaming might not have the most refined games, but their cinematic trailers are unmatched, which is very good considering that there happens to be a lack of good warship footage as a whole. When I have time, I might illustrate what typical Commonwealth Navy ships look like, since the majority of the grand fleet are composed of heavy cruisers, battleships, and generally heavy ships with large guns for bombardment. Smaller ships like destroyers and light cruisiers are viewed as pretty worthless in the Commonwealth Navy, and most being sold off to the Khek Khanate to form their maritime fleets. Torpedoes in the Commonwealth are pretty primitive, most being your typical unguided point-and-shoot variety, and the Commonwealth has just barely touched mono-winged planes, much less developed proper carrier ships for them.

Addressing the issue of Turtleshroomian mercenaries, they are pretty mild compared to the general crowd that the Commonwealth Navy tends to employ. The Mackonians and Kheks tend to view the slaughter of entire populaces as another spring shower, the GPH mercenaries have that glimmer which looks like they want to nick everything that isn't bolted down, and there will be plenty of Darussian refugees jumping out of one fire and into another for the slim chance of a better life. In short, the Lynxcian Campaign - in the best case scenario - will end up with widespread looting and slaughter, and the Commonwealth Navy probably won't even furrow a brow because their Capital was pretty much wiped off the face of the earth.

Concerning potential infighting, the Commonwealth Navy tends to employ officers to maintain order and raise morale of the mercenary bands, which usually boil down to shouting in a language that many foreigners don't understand, and attempting to avoid getting murdered by the more psychopathic of mercenaries. Of course, what typically happens is that the 'leaders' of the mercenary bands are given a general objective from the Commonwealth Navy, and are pretty much free to accomplish it how they see fit - so as long as they listen to their Commonwealth officers. In the Lynxcian Campaign specifically, many mercenaries will be content to know that the Commonwealth Navy is right behind them all the way, and will probably shoot straight through them if they stop too long to engage in pretty quarrels with other mercenaries.

We'll see how it works when we get there; I'm sure many officers will be weighing their odds with the frigid waters or downing their weight in aspirin when it comes to random bickering between mercenaries.

There is one thing I forgot to mention on that note. Even the TurtleShroomer PMCs that are okay with looting will not obey an order demanding the assault or physically harm a civilian, except if the civilian is attacking. They also do not attack churches, houses of worship (except mosques, which they will also gleefully loot), hospitals, medical centers, refugee camps, orphanages, almshouses, primary schoolhouses, and humanitarian aid workers and their setups. This isn't always because they're nice guys: PMCs can be charged back home with Crimes Against the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit (most know these as "war crimes" and "crimes against humanity") under both TS laws and Steele Pact bylaws. That is a capital crime. PMCs face few regulations from the government, but the notable exemption of charities and houses of worship, as well as the strict ROE for civilians is famous.

Lynxia, I don't exactly understand what you want me to make for your video. I've actually made crudely animated, but well-received videos since 2007 AD using a method I attempted to patent. (Sadly, that patent was lost with my computer. That was a low point in my electronic life.)

What exactly is this video? What does it entail ?, I would prefer for Mackonia not to appear in it if the truth be told.

Mackonia & Turtleshroom,

The 'Land of Power Video' is a short video that I am making to give a visual representation of the LOP and the nations within it. For example, I am currently working on a fully textured arial view of the LOP based on TS's map. This will be one scene in the short film. Another scene will briefly feature the Lynxcian communist revolution. I have strewn this together from various movies and video games. The War of Steel shall be briefly featured. CC's illustrations shall appear in relation to the Asahinan Commonwealth. Kedri's pirate king too. This video will add a visual colour to the LOP, beyond literature.

With permission, each nation shall be briefly featured is a way of which they approve. This is why I have asked for content that you approve of, not that I find. My vision of the TurtleShroomian landscape or the Mackonian swamps may be quite different from yours, so your superior view is the necessary one. Even if there are just a few simple images that are relevant to your nation, then please give me the links. It shall take a couple of months to finish. When complete, the video shall be put online for you all to view.
