The Beppin Legacy

The history and future of a utopian marriage of Third Reich idealism and the wonderously vast tapestry of the animal kingdom.

The Hall of Remembrance

One of the wings of my personal residence in Beppin has become an shrine to the military presence in our nation. Through the years I've collected some pieces that I proudly display as an homage to those who've sacrificed themselves for the honour of Beppin. The eternal flames, symbolising the Third and Fourth Reichs, cast a warm glow over this wing and, as pictured, I often stop and reminisce in this part of my house while tending to my black tulips, themselves a symbol of loss and remembrance.

The artifacts are all very personally attached to me and have value far beyond mere Bells. The gasmask was used in trench warfare along Beppin's coast when liberating the land. The jungle camouflage field blouse was once the personal attire of the legendary figure: Sturmbannführer Samson A. Mouse. A proud Beppian who fought gallantly to secure the Beppin Neues Rheinland on our north western border in a bloody war of attrition that lasted for nearly half a year. Just being near these tactile memories of Beppin's history is a deep and moving feeling... one which strikes at my very heart.

My small shrine of remembrance of fallen heroes is a place of reflection for me. Whilst the sombre notes of K.K. Chorale play on my vintage gramophone, I can feel the spirit of Beppin become one with me. I can feel the pain of the past, and can see ahead to the bright future. Beppin as an idea and vision takes form in this hallowed hall. It is only through our history that we can make a future.

I find solace in the eternal flames. When I've felt that the world has been against me, and fought tooth and nail to keep me from my work, I can gain so much perspective through quiet reflection. With only their flickering light to guide me, the eternal flames of this shrine shall proudly lead us towards glorious times.

it is good that you keep these momentos, so that you do not lose sight of the goals you have set.

Ah, just your description of the room brings a tear to my eye. I can hear the Chorale now, and the flickering flames of the torches; dancing with vigour as though they wanted to be a living tribute to the artefacts within. I close my eyes and I'm there again, out of the harsh Winter winds, warmed by the heat of the torches and the memories of distant days.

However, I do have a question. Has the cannon been retired, or is it now seeing active duty on the Beppin perimeter, as so deserves such a tireless bastion of our old world.

We know a lot about Reichsführer Octavian K. Octopus, but what of your other fallen comrades?

Does Beppin have many potential legends currently residing within the three cliffs of the 4th riech?

There are still many fallen heroes to recount tales of, and many new members to our forces who prove themselves daily. All shall have their tales of triumph recounted in the Beppin Legacy.

However, I fear that dedicating less than an entire entry to them discounts their value and I dearly want every story to be told in full.
