You may remember reading news
about the "Lost Admiral", that famous Admiral who so
valiantly defended our
country for many years... Tragically the bitter losses towards the end of
the war drove the Admiral wild with frustration and
endless soul searching. Eventually the burden
became so great that the Admiral's
mind turned inward searching for the solution to
the overwhelming war killing our country. Now the
Admiral is lost to us, creating an endless internal world where
various approaches and solutions these bitter naval
battles is sought. The Admiral has literally
created a mental world of complex
"Naval Chess"... And WE must
help the Admiral solve these dilemmas and return
to the real world to help our country!
YOU must guide the
Admiral through the many challenges created in this
mental "Naval Chess" and lead the way back to acceptance, inner peace,
and the determination to see our country finish this war
and return to peace. The Admiral's mind is
brilliant, and very good at creating
surprises, twists, and opponents that show no mercy.
You must fight these mental battles side by side with
the Admiral, and overcome any and
all resistance that the Admiral creates on this
quest for inner peace and
When you are ready to start helping the
Admiral, enter the "Save the Admiral" Menu from the
first menu in LAR. After some brief introduction
text, you will be able to view the first political
region. This is where the Admiral feels that he
can gain support needed by his homeland for the war by
doing favors to each State's political forces.
Each state will have a special mission and battle map
that it wishes a conquest to be made on. Choose a
state, successfully complete the special battle mission,
and the state will be swayed to support the Admiral!
Do this for enough states, and the Region will be
solidly behind the Admiral's efforts! Then your
efforts can move to other regions to continue to improve
the Admiral's condition.
Every state has a cost in "State points" that
you must pay in order to start it's special mission.
If you do not have enough state points to try for any of
the states on the map, you will need to go earn some
more state points by fighting regular battles.
Every state wants you to
fight and win on a specific battle map, and conduct a
special mission successfully. Complete
their requested mission to both sway the state to
support the Admiral, and to receive a variety of rewards
that the state may be offering.
To undertake a state's
mission, simply left click on the state's
initials on the map, or on it's name in the state list.
There are also "extra"
battles you can fight that are not tied to any
specific state. Use these battles to
earn specific extra rewards
for Perk points, State points, or other useful bonuses.
You will only have so many of these "extra" battles
available to you at any given time, and will earn new
ones for every two state battles you actually fight (win
or lose). These "extra" battles are listed at the
bottom of the menu.
Refer to the following additional sections to
learn more about the state map, rewards offered, how to
fight and win state battles, or strategies to use when

How quickly can you Save the Admiral?
Seek his mental acceptance of support from all the
states with all the speed and alacrity you can muster...
Always keep in the back of your own mind that

Admiral's mental "Naval Chess", so you can expect surprises and twists that
might not be seen in our everyday real word life...
