Game drawn
24 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1: The Pharaoh sends peace to all civilized peoples of the Mediterranean
25 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1: In response the Triumvirate of Rome offers it's well wishes to all the Mediterranean people
25 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1: Peace to all. Especially Rome.
25 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1: Peace to all.
25 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1: But let's have a knock down, drag out, nail biter! :)
25 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1: Note taken Carthage and yes let's have some funN
25 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1: Hmmm, Egypt, if you can tackle Carthage in the south, and Greece, can you take Rome and Carthage through the center? I will come at Rome from the north.
25 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1: This is acceptable to Egypt provided Persian forces do not move south
25 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1: Just Tyre? Jerusalem save as DMZ till someone needs it? Petra is yours.

And for Greece, Bithnia Galatia, and Isauria as DMZ, fleet stays in Cyprus or Syrian Sea.
25 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1: Alright if we're doing it this way Carthage Sicily is yours southern Spain is yours and ill try to help defend in the seas and ill take Sardinia to start any other ideas just hits up!
25 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1: greece can gp pn Rpmee and Carthage.
You take Sinope. and Isauris, Galatia and Bithynia are DMZ.
25 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1: Yes, of course on Tyre, the Prince of Persia's birthright, as is Asia minor, keeping Jerusalem as an independent city also pleases the Pharaoh
25 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1: Rome: wait Sicily or Sardinia? Sicily borders neapolis and it might be wiser if you took that while I took Sardinia.
25 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1: Ok if that's what you'd like :) I was just doing it as a sign of good faith to not box you in! But ok
25 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1: Rome: Thank you. I just don't want you worrying about me stabbing you.
25 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1: I really dont think we have room for backstabbing lol
25 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1: true haha
25 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1: Only a backstabber would say that :-o
25 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1: It's two vs. three soooo it's my honest opinion
25 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1: Does anyone wanna come over to the fun side?
26 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 1: Ya Persia. it will be awfully hard for you to expand with allies on both sides but if you side with use then we have both the Egyptians and Greeks flanked.
26 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 1: Yes I agree with Carthage!!!
26 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 1: It will be tough. I can't go south, but I can go around the Black Sea, providing Greece with security. When you and Rome had your understanding, it did not include me, or Greece, or Egypt. I knew if you were unified, as you both indicated, we remaining three had to hang together. So we will try.
26 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 1: It's better to hang together than to hang apart!
26 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 1: And anyway the Pharaoh was always interested only in peace. It is the barbarians of Rome and Carthage who began talk of war and invasion
26 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 1: I said I seek peace with all at the beginning I said especially Rome since he was right next to me
26 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 1: And I concurred Persia started war plans
26 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 1: Okay, I'll draw it! :)
26 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 1: Persia you should really join us. you would have a pretty easy conquest on all sides and then we could settle for a three way draw
26 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 1: Sorry, must keep my word to Egypt and Greece.
26 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 1: Carthage, I suggest you withdraw from historically Egyptian seas if you wish the keep the peace in Africa
26 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 1: Egypt I thought you were attacking me? I thought it was pretty much open war
26 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 1: I never said anything. I took Leptis because of the status of Jerusalem as a free city. Had you taken Sardinia like the Romans suggested you'd have as many SCs as the rest of us!
26 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 1: The Romans do know what they are talking about!
26 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 2: The army in Cirta was a most unfortunate decision
26 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 2: Rome has found a perfect ally, one ready to be placed beneath heel
26 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 2: Except I respect my allies and treat them as equals!!!!
26 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 2: Greece, my current Chersonesus move is to Sarmatia, though I am debating not moving in case Rome is trying to block, and you might grab Vindobona. And there is Dacia, but I won't move there unless you want my unit for assistance.

Egypt, as I cannot help you much, take Jerusalem to help bolster your units. I will have units bottled up, but we probably need another army in your area.
27 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 2: Haha good plans everyone :) but don't expect the bounce!
27 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 2: I think Rome will try to bounce. Otherwise he's cornered next turn. Hmm...
27 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 2: Egypt: where is there to attack other than me? even if I had agreed to your turns you would've attacked me. At least this way I have a chance
27 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 2: Rome: I am sry about the move to Tar. I wasn't sure if my plan would work but now I don't have to take it. I would still very much like it but if you want it that's ok.
27 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 2: Take massila ill take baleares
28 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 2: Alrighty thnx
30 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 3: Greece, I am hitting Venetia and Vindobona, so Dalmatia should be yours.
30 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 3: TNX!
30 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 3: Woah woah :-/ Carthage is gone...now it's 3 vs 1..
30 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 3: If Carthage leaves, I'll be willing to draw it.
30 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 3: Much appreciated its just I'd rather not take a defeat on my record when we were all set up and all that hahaha :-P
01 Jul 13 UTC Autumn, 3: Okay, I said I'd draw it.
