TURN 8

Hello all, this will be my first forum battle, so I'm hoping everything will go smoothly!

King George of England was horrified to realize that, for a few moments each day, the sun really did set on the British Empire. To solve this problem, he dispatched a group of Royal Marines with orders to claim a random island in the middle of the ocean to fix the problem.
"There's the target, lads! And it looks like we've got a fight on our hands!"
Image

Unfortunately, the island was already inhabited by a group of natives, who just wanted to keep...erm... doing whatever they were doing.
Image

A group of pirates also had their sights set on the island, thinking it would make a great secret hideout while they tried to acquire a better ship.
"Arr, mateys! Thar be a place where we can hide all of our treasure an' stuff!"
"But Cap'n, we ain't got no treasure!"
"Who asked you, ya bilge rat?"
Image

And, for no apparent reason, some US Navy sailors.
"Well, it doesn't look like Pearl Harbor, but the maps say this should be it, so..."
Image

Overview.

There will also be two secret factions.

Okay, signup is open!
Royal Marines: RunsWithLegos
Natives: darkpaladin
Pirates: Zupponn
US Navy: sjosten
Secret Faction 1: Thesson
Secret Faction 2: mgb519

I'll take the US guys. By the way, all they had to do to get to Pearl Harbor was take a left at Alberquerque.

Thanks, but it was an official LEGO model, not a MOC

LOL.

As soon as the last two factions are taken, I'll get this thing started!

I will go ahead and PM stats. If no one signs up for secret faction 1, I'll take it.

EDIT: Go ahead an PM me your orders. If I get a turn done today, it'll be later. If everyone has orders in by the time I get back from work this evening, I'll see if I can get the first round up.

I have decided that the surfboard native, the British officer, the pirate captain, and one guy in each secret faction will all get heroic feats (but not heroic stats). Since all of the US Navy guys are the same, sjosten, if you want any one of them to do a feat, let me know. If he is sufficiently awesome, he can become your quasi-hero.

I just need orders from Zupponn's pirates.

Despite not having orders for the natives, I've gone ahead with turn 2, because I will be going out of town tomorrow morning and will not be returning until Thursday evening, so I won't be able to continue until Friday. If everyone sends in turn 3 orders by then, I will go ahead and post it on Friday.
