Kingston: Its Not That Cold Down Here

Its easy to get lost in Kingston. After all, the capital city of Lunatic Retard Robots does cover an island the size of many countries, with a population fit for many countries to boot.

Established in the late 1000s AD, Kingston is notable for its status as the only major city in LRR with a port directly on the ocean. For this reason, it has always been a hub of trade. Kingston houses the sprawling shipyard complex of Lunkwill & Fook Shipbuilders, and is home to an ever-growing commercial district. Kingston is also known as one of the more hospitable cities in the archipelago, being near its southern extent. Summer temperatures can climb into the eighties, and what few beaches there are always find themselves packed full of citizens eager to go for a swim without a drysuit.

(More to come)

So, how do you all like so far?

(Time for the obligatory military numbers.)

Robotic Defense Force


Ever since the cream of the Robotic military was destroyed in the 1940s, the service has never fully recovered. When the last few Churchills finally bit the dust, the military stopped caring about itself. The idea of the RDF as possessing any kind of notable capabilities outside of the local environment is farfetched, and the military relies as much on the inhospitable weather and unusual geography as on its weapons to thwart an invasion. However, the military does have some effective weapons systems.

Aye. No matter how hard you try, nobody can escape!

Unless they have a good military and decide to attack me...

(Ah, LRR, you are having little more luck than I in attracting attention. BG in the none AMW world now has the bones of a factbook (the exceptionally wordy bones!), here (, by the way. Defensive military only, so no smashing you, sadly :) I wonder, does Robotstan lie anywhere in particular relative to real world geography, or is it just one of those vague things we love so much? I have much to learn about extra-AMW LRR, mayhap I shall follow you around for a bit [smiles in a slightly crooked fashion].)
Lunatic Retard Robots

I dunno, BG. I was sort of counting on following you around. You an Iansisle, for some good RP action outside of futuretech and AMW.

So if you have anything going now, I'd be happy to participate...

Ah, nothing yet, but I'll certainly let you know.
I'm still fiddling about with my map and trying to decide how to equip the guardsmen and women. Maybe I'll start out with elections to the Soviets or something.

As for my location, I always imagined it to be in the north pacific, very near the arctic circle, and with the atlantic not terribly distant across the pole.

Equipping your soldiers? Well, I'm probably not the best at that. Most troops still wear 1968-pattern DPM, with 1950-pattern uniforms still very common among reserve troops. Webbing is fairly modern, though, as well as boots, with local adaptations of the CS95 gear the most common. Firearms are not the most modern, though. The Ak-47 is still by far the most common rifle template, although the IW. 1948 (Robotstani Ak-47) can accept rifle grenades. L1A1s (IW. 1961s) are also fairly common. The IW. 1955 SMG is a very prolific weapon as well, and is used by just about every type of unit.

Generally, Robotstani gear is made to be reliable and comfortable, and military dress protocol is virtually non-existant beyond the uniform jacket so more wearable civilian clothing can be used.

Well, the none AMW BG shan't really consider itself to have soldiers, as such. The army has been disbanded, anyway. Gigantic national guard type effort. Strategically questionable having been untested, and relying for lessons instead on the strategic weakness of the communards a hundred and thirty years ago (without admiting to influence by Trotsky's criticism of same or BG's Russian population's bitter experience with his solutions), while armed largely with Finnish arms often not far removed from the AKs themselves. No LRR worries about pissing off the Igovians in this reality! Attack us and we'll probably mobilise enough fighters to pick your army up and carry it back over the border, but there's not much danger of us counter-attacking with anything more than an angry letter.

Ookay, just kick me if I keep spamming your thread with what ends up being crap about my nation :)

Well, in order for the LRRA to attack any country not very close by, somebody else would have to provide ships. Unless, of course, I organize an invasion force with assault boats towed behind a few elderly destroyers and frigates.

I rely on the sheer awkwardness of LRR terrain as my first line of defense. Tanks are virtually useless, and non-STOL aircraft or any equipment that can't stand up to extreme cold and very primitive facilities will also be in trouble. In LRR, the rubber inflatable boat is the primary means of transportation for infantry. (Engineers usually get tracked carriers, and LCIs are used over longer stretches of water).
