Elmagnifico said: I'm thinking about doing a Hungry City Chronicles brikwar, with Traction Cities, the Anti-Tractionists, Stalkers, and possibly the Zagwan Air Fleet. It's going to take a while to perfect the Traction Cities, (it's probably going to be Munich or Zurich, or possibly Vienna,) so Project: Reeve isn't going to be up for a long time.
Well, this is it! I know I said it wouldn't be up for a while, but signup for this brikwar is going to be different, so I'm putting up the details now.
This battle is going to take place in a pass of the Ghengai Range, a little-known region of the Anti-Traction League's border with the Hunting Ground.

Okay, signup for this forum battle is going to be a little bit different. Instead of my giving out control on a first-come, first-serve basis, each faction shall have a trivia question from Philip Reeve's Hungry City Chronicles.
PM YOUR ANSWERS TO ME! DO NOT POST YOUR ANSWER ON THIS TOPIC!
Whoever answers the question correctly for any given faction by PM-ing me the answer first, will gain control of that faction. You may only guess for one faction. Once you have guessed for one faction, you may guess again if you are wrong, but you can only guess again for that faction. Limit one faction per account.
Stalker-Bat; Aerial cyborgs, these creatures act as the Iron Revenants' air force. They get +1 attack dice when attacking in groups.
Anti-Stalker Trooper; Armed with the lightning rifles invented by the New Londoners, these troopers devastate Stalkers, who only get 1 defense die against them, but are ineffective against non-Stalkers, who need two hits from the rifles before they go down. All three non-Stalker factions have these, but the Copenhageners have the most.
Iron Dragon; Armed with a long-range-fireball-spitting-flamethrower-rifle, these men devastate airships and other hydrogen-filled constructs.
