Terribly sorry, I'm afraid I have to drop out. My apologies.
@Serpentine88 Very good! At the next edit or at your convenience though, if you could change 'Republic of Drakma' to 'Republics of Drakma' or 'Realms of Drakma' I'd appreciate it, the plurality being important.
No, the north war will not be in a limbo. I hope to see Myst return but if he doesn't, then the northern Justinians will have a quick string of victories and will ransack the entire princedom.
NS is 85% done. I'll do a little 5% more before moving it to the character dump and work on my post, I hope for it to be done this weekend.
@Apollosarcher Well, this is bad. What now?

The new guard. From left to right, Imperial Warrant Officer Nicolas de Rosecroix, Imperial Corporal Emil Lambert, Imperial Corporal Francis Lebel.

Name: Count Nicolas de Rosecroix
Age: 24
Platoon: Engineers
Weapons: Pistol & Sword
Personality: As a noble and an intellectual, the count is often distant from the soldiers under his command as they just don't come from the same background, but yet they admire the fact that he's genuinely smart, able to formulate effective and practical solutions to any problem the platoon encounters and above all, ones that don't necessitate outrageous amounts of risks. Although the man doesn't consider himself a man of war, preferring architecture and urbanism, even he admits that there is something fun about constantly facing new problems and challenges, perhaps he likes it more than it would be proper for someone to do so.
Bio: Rosecroix is a large village near the northern border of the empire who once stood at the edge of the situation, the Count living in a fortified castle and tasked to defend the border. Since then however, the border moved further up the map and if at the edge, Rosecroix was comfortable within the Empire, its fortifications abandoned and the count moving to a luxurious mansion. Still, the military tradition kept on and from a young age, Nicolas was expected to go in the army for a military service before becoming count at the death of his father.

This never did appeal to Nic who had taken a liking in the old arches and towers of the castle of his ancestors and much prefered architecture. The only middle ground he managed to find with his father was to study to specialize as a military engineer before taking the officer class. He did good in his classes but truth be told he probably wasn't the best in them either being told he was too soft spoken and 'experimental' in nature, he qualified for selection but his father nudged the choice in his favor. Some people called him out on this but what proof did they have? Plus, Nic is actually competent unlike a lot of others using bribery and contacts to get where they are.

At the start of the war he didn't get news from his family but was quickly informed that his birth place had been taken over by the northmen and thus fears his family captured or dead. This wasn't a turn of event he expected but he realizes the importance of the task falling upon the soldiers of the Empire right now and guess his father was right: As a noble its his duty to protect his homeland.

Theme

Name: Emil Lambert
Age: 24
Weapons: Air Carbine
Platoon: Engineers
Bio: A man with a fiery temper, he distinguished himself during training with his courage but not so much his brain. Truth is he's good for leading a couple of people to execute a plan, but not to make one though he often not realizes that. He and Nicolas quite frankly dislike each other, and that's putting it mildly though they can put that aside for the cause. Since the war started they are much less at each other's throats at least.

Name: Francis Lebel
Age: 20
Weapon: Air Carbine
Platoon: Engineer
Bio: A city boy who joined to better his life rather than for a sense of duty, Nicolas still keeps an eye on him and made him a corporal simply because the guy, while he may not know it, is brilliant. Oh he calls it just being able to think about what's behind the hill but simply being able to detect obvious flaws in someone's plans or think about little details makes him invaluable. Nicolas is thus grooming him to take an officer course believing he'd make a fine commander.


The old guard, Imperial Sergeant Yves Barbokis

Name: Yves Barbokis
Age: 62
Weapon: Air Carbine
Platoon: Engineer
Bio: He doesn't like to discuss it, but he is partly northman, his mother having fallen victim to a raid long ago, this imbued him with the desire to defend the innocents from such a faith. He served for a long time and saw quite some action before going to retirement with his wife, giving his time to his children and grand children in the south. With the war raging however, he was mobilized back in a hurry and placed under the command of Nicolas, as his previous sergeant had deserted with the news of the war. The young ones are kind of confusing for him, he after all served with his own platoon his entire life and saw his mates age with him but he does what he can to try and give some knowledge to them.

@Dynamo Frokane This is 18th century warfare, artillery was almost exclusively in a straight firing line, even in early WW1 many major nations didn't even have more than a handful modern artillery that fired in arc so arty is probably how you get the most K/D in this entire thing.

Mages have magic bruh.

Overall I'd say you can just specialize in what you want. Scouting? Take a gun or horse platoon and specialize them in scouting. Heavy gunner? Gun platoon with more machineguns per soldiers than others, etc. These are just basic guidelines in my opinion.
No way to play engineer?
