It's fiction. I'm not easily offended by that.

It should have been called Soviet Secret School but as I said, it's fiction :D


Besides.. we won the Cold War...  ;D

The title is lifted straight from the pulp novel.  ;D

Yeah, like America won the War of 1812... *winks*

I'd say it was a draw!

That's the title of a book? Damn it, can't get it... *sighs* all the fun sounding books... lol

I thought that the cold war was over because someone finally paid the 'lectric bill...

Or the soviets finally got the secrets to rubatussan...

We won the space race. Which is what the Cold War was about for a good part. We also had/have more nukes, a bigger standing army and much, much more land. We're also richer.

But the Americans invented propaganda so they will tell you differently :p


Or maybe that was the Soviets... Hmm..  ;)

Are you sure about winning the space race, Dasha? After all, the Americans were first with

- landing men on the moon
- creating a viable space shuttle system
- photographing Jupiter up-close, and all planets beyond it
- landing advanced probes on Mars and getting them to take colour pictures, analyze the soil and so on (while the Soviet Mars probes had failed or gone silent after just a minute or so on the ground)

 ::)

I'll admit Gorbachev mattered as much as Reagan to getting he Cold war to a peaceful end - or more than Reagan...

/Luiza, officially lurking on this one. It's a setting of a kind I love, but I don't thnk Išll have the time to get into the game.

And lets not forget a damned good hockey league should never be discounted.

I recall a quote from a book that I read so long ago that I've forgotten the title.

"Looks like a brawl where a hockey game broke out."

It's kinda like two southerners talking about which mother has the best biscuits... ;)

The hockey league actually took quite a beating after the Lokomotiv Yaroslav team plane crash.




We're not talking RL... none of the above mentioned actually happened. It's all made in Hollywood :P


Serious note... what's the minimum age you'd accept for a character?

Yeah, everyone knows that the moon landings were done on a stage set and funded by the CIA to spoof the KGB's attempts to learn the secrets to our rockets  not blowing up.... then Apollo 13 happened and the russians gave up on spying on Nasa.

Alright.

Got a bit too many games going at the moment. Some usually die early. Then I get more time for this one :D

So, Comrades, when does school start? I am guessing we could use a few more students?

I guess the same.

Oh, I was thinking the school should be called the University for Secret Seductress Recruits. That way it could save money by just using the government's letterhead.  :P

I'm kinda busy with other games for the next few days so I was holding off on character creation until I could really sit down and figure out who I wanted to play.

There is no immediate rush, I will probably at least take most of the weekend to review any CS that are still to arrive.

Another character was added to the opening post.

So far we have three teachers and two students. I would like some more of both before we get started.
I have at least one more student that is close to approval, so the numbers are more or less even at the moment.

Point of information, which is probably not in the least bit important... Colonel Orluv is wearing a Two-Star General's uniform!

The character name is almost identical to the name of the Bond Villain used as the pic base, General Orlov, from Octopussy.

As I said, probably not important, but I thought I'd mention it...

I would love to add some more players. At the same time, I do not want to delay the start of this game indefinitely.
I think I will give it until this weekend and then possibly start it, depending on how I feel about the roster at that time.
