The service record, in this RP, is just to show kind of how your character got to where they are. What their rank is, where they've served, any awards, things like that. I doubt it'll come up in RP, and so I'd like you to please give us a little more information about his record.

Name: Adolph Hitler
Nation of Origin: Austria
Affiliation: German Army
Occupation: Gefreiter (private First class)
Service Record: When Germany entered World War I in August 1914, Adolph petitioned King Ludwig III of Bavaria for permission to serve in a Bavarian regiment. This request was granted, and Adolf enlisted in the Bavarian army. Hitler served in France and Belgium in the 16th Bavarian Reserve Regiment, distinguishing himself with He received the Iron Cross, Second Class, in 1914 and later the Iron Cross, First Class, an honour rarely given to a Gefreiter. Because the regimental staff thought Hitler lacked leadership skills and the issue of his citizenship, he has yet to be promoted to Unteroffizier (equivalent to a British corporal). He serves most often as a dispatch runner, sending messages back and forth while under fire. He tends to remain aloof from others, often busy with drawings and making instructional sketches
On the one hand, the idea of having an Adolf Hitler in this RPG is unsettling. However, given that this would've kept him out of the Austrian slums where he fostered his hatred for Orthodox Jews, I can understand how this might... 'redirect' his energies. So unless it offends anyone to the point of their being unable to RP, I'll allow it. And before anyone asks, no, there will NOT be a Joseph Stalin or similar communist character. I'm setting in stone right now that the major communists were rounded up and arrested for treason.
Ack I knew I forgot something!
Nation of Origin:
A note: Being 1925, African American characters (As well as Irish, Chinese, Japanese, Eastern Europeans) will face discrimination. I personally hate segregation, having grown up around bigots and other people of lesser intelligence (the racist pigs, not the people they hated). However, for historicalish accuracy, segregation is, unfortunately, alive and well. So if you intend to play a character like this, you have been warned.
Add in a spot for branch of service please. Civilians can just put 'Civilian' or N/A. And yes, civilians are allowed, so please don't feel you have to have a military character :) If you've already added what branch you're in, don't feel like you have to go back and modify it. I just know that with the numerous branches we have already, that it might get confusing.
Other than those I mentioned, all characters are approved.
Can anyone supply me please with the name of a military airstrip near New York in the 1920s or 30s? I plan to have a female transport (ferry) pilot, a girl who flies bombers across the Atlantic from America to Britain where they are serviced and sent to active squadrons. I need a base near New York where she is currently stationed. Thanks!
Indeed I can :) Floyd Bennett Field
. I know it was built in '28 but we'll say it was finished in '25, what with a war on and all.
Would you allow for a female civilian character to join the battle?
Men and women are both allowed. Civilians for sure, and you can join the Air Corps or the Navy as a woman.
