To celebrate, I'm launching my first Visual Novel! "Attack on Titan: Pirate's Way", an alternate universe retelling of the original series!
Titans, as well as the humans who morph into them, are an abomination of oldest lore! The "Coordinate" holds the power to their transformation, yet to be abused by the wealthy, stolen or bartered by those with interest, or coveted by the poor and dying! Who secretly holds this power? Join Annie and crew as they sail the seas and you may [or may not] find out!
A woman of few words, a past of even fewer. Daughter of a privateer, now common man but formerly famed in the inner circles of Wall Sina. Commands "The Titan", a brig whose figurehead is the colossal man-lion.
The hearty British sea-farer. From a homestead in the Isles to which he dreams a swift return. Born and raised a farmer. Quartermaster aboard "The Titan".
The Spaniard and swordsman. Comrade of Reiner Braun, encountered during their flight from the homestead in the Isles. 1st Quartermaster of "The Titan", only because the captain harbors a stronger dislike for the 2nd, Braun.
Born on the "Shiganishima", a chance acquaintance of Captain Leonhardt upon her infiltration of Wall Rose and Maria.
Sailing vessel sizes: galleon [largest] - frigate - brig - schooner - civilian ship [smallest]
The Imperial galleon. Safeguard of the King and home ground of the "Coordinate" for which Captain Leonhardt and her crew hunt. Under command of Captain Nile Dawes and escorted by a squadron of frigates known as the "Military Police".
Wall Rose + Wall Maria
Two of three galleons in the Imperial fleet, the larger sister ships and protectors of the Sina. Captains among their ranks are Erwin Smith and Dot Pixis.
The Wings of Freedom
The scouting warships (or "wings") of the Rose and Maria galleons. Famed among them is "Squad Revaille", a flotilla of schooners headed by Privateer Revaille. Despite the Wing's tactical prowess, their nature as scouts unto unsafe waters has also earned them a history of heavy losses.
Within the military confines of Sina, Rose, and Maria journey an ocean of civilian vessels! Under protection of the "Wall" galleons, their coordinates relative to the Walls correspond to their social rank in the Sina-Rose-Maria hierarchy. The "Shiganshima" was one such ship, which traveled on the cardinal periphery of Maria.
Brig of Captain Leonhardt. Sails a snarling lion flag embroidered with an L.
Before his service to Annie, Berthold formerly served aboard this galleon.
Ye old tale is retold through "Letters" scouted from the ocean's treacherous waters!
Letter I: The Battle with Ackerman (a retelling of episode 25)
Captain Leonhardt's crew has boarded Wall Sina to secure the Coordinate! Unknown to them is that Commander Smith has set into motion a plan for their capture within the galleon's compounds. When Annie is faced with little choice but to flee, she is confronted in combat on Sina's top-castle by Mikasa Ackerman, cadet of the "Wings of Freedom"!
Letter II: I Repay My Debts
Cue more thoughts from P.A.D. after seeing Reiner dressed like that! (Yadda yadda yadda... Yeah, he reminds me of the pirates [blue and green] right now, so... heh heh...)
Great work, by the way :3
Now I'm gonna quickly read the second part
And then if I make fan art of that fan art we'll start a cycle!
DeviantArt blows up the size of smaller images, so we get some pixelating going on, but you can always download the Flash and run it to get the good quality. =]
Your enthusiasm is much appreciated!
Awesome work, anyway.
