 Well, I ment that in 1914, (in leviathan or whenever year it's based in) the planes could take down the airships, but your right, 1916 was the first year a zepp was shot down.

Probably. But I still think the Leviathan's kind of pathetic for a warship.

 Yeah, it's technically a semi rigid airship, and those are epic fails (the french used them, that's why)

Ah yes...the French. They are lovers, not fighters, like the Italians. Good food, bad weaponry. Part of why they get demolished in the first couple chapters of Darwin's Fist.

With the italians, its a cultural thing. But not true bout the frenchies. Despite what the simpsons say, they are not cheese eating surrender monkeys. They got more military victories under they're belt then any other country.

I never said they surrender a lot. They just don't focus on combat as much as other countries (Germany). And the reason they get squashed in Darwin's Fist is because Germany catches them by surprise with a lot of nasty new toys.

Well, I ment that in 1914, (in leviathan or whenever year it's based in) the planes could take down the airships, but your right, 1916 was the first year a zepp was shot down.

Not if you go by other fictions...  :P

(The setting is in the Industrial Revolution... probably mid 1850s...)



Well, the Zeplin was shot down by a robot... but close nuff.  ;D

What console, do you think? Or just all of them?

And then when Bovril hatches you can use him as a character too.
At the beginning, you can choose whether to begin as Alek or Deryn, and there lie most of your skills. Deryn can clumsily pilot and Alek can half-control the beasties.

most consoles, but definitly PC and xbox
