25 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1908: France. I'm sorry. It was an honest mistake, not intentional. My army was supposed to attack York, but I mistakenly entered Clyde.

You may not believe me, but all of our other orders were consistent. I hope that you'll allow me to correct my mistake.
25 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1908: Germany. I'm sorry I made a mistake. Our new world order may be jeopardized as a result.
25 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1908: Sorry I'm not buying that.
25 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1909: Hahaha, I love it.
25 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1909: England care to help me into the North Sea?
25 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1909: France, I am with you 100%. I'm up for France and Italy vs. Russia and Germany. Let's maintain out DMZ at Pie, GoL, Tyrrhenian, and Western Med
25 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1909: *our
25 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1909: France, what's not to buy? Every move happened correctly and I'll have to move back to Edinburgh anyway. It was an honest mistake.

We may end up being enemies, but I've never attacked you or your position.
25 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1909: Hey! France I kept my moves don't attack me for his sins!
25 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1909: OK Germany as long as you keep to that.
26 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1909: Jeepers! Hasn't anyone entered mistaken orders before?
26 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1909: I have a lot...
26 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1909: I love my little Isolated kingdom within France.... Gascony just refuses to put up that French flag even though I've basicaly abandoned them... THAT is true loyalty right there.
26 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1909: Germany, can you work on France and try to put our alliance together?
26 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1909: I didn't mean any offense by that move to Tyrolia Germany. Just worried that you might move there.
26 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1909: Germany how about we agree to leave our border where it is and leav the big boys to fight it out?
26 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1909: England, allegiances are shifting quickly in this environment, but you now see that I have an interest in supporting you.

I'd even consider retreating from your homeland as I continue to grow. France tried to dupe you into helping him, but you survived because I supported London. Stay strong, England, and you may yet make it to the end of the game!
26 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1909: Germany,

France can only grow at your expense or Italy's and he's made his choice clear. And Italy is clearly hostile. Don't believe his lies about his innocence as he takes your territory!
26 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1909: Russia, what would you like me to do?
27 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1909: England, support north sea. To English Channel
27 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1909: Ok. Let me get a survive and I'll give you all the support you need.
27 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1909: England, Agreed. I'll do everything possible to ensure you survive til the end of the game.
27 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1909: Still here btw.
27 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1909: Good to hear. We wouldn't want Germany disappearing! And France, I plan to continue the attack on Russia's southern flank. Please let me know if there's anything I can do to help you.
28 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1909: Germany, we've been allies since the beginning.

I'd like to see you take belgium from France, let's see if we can make that happen!
28 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1909: If Germany should break our truce support against him would be appreciated
28 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1910: Do you still want support, Russia?
28 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1910: You do know that he will take you out before long England.
28 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1910: He'll probably take me out, but without him, you'll take me out. It's better than sitting around waiting to die (especially since this is public press).
29 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1910: When I make a pledge, I keep it..... At least until the other party breaks the deal. Britain, you'll make it to the end if I have anything to say about it
29 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1910: Glad to hear it. I'll keep the support order in.
29 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1910: Would anyone else be up for taking out England and going for a four-way draw? The way we are going, I can only see this ending in a stalemate or a Russian solo (if he gets MAO). So I may as well hedge my bets and vote for a draw!
29 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1910: No offense intended England...
29 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1910: I'm game for that!
29 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1910: me too
29 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1910: Italy time to move on Germany?
01 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 1911: Russia... Did you support his attack?
01 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 1911: Sure looks like it. Also, I'm ready to draw as soon as we get England out. France and Germany are on board too. Russia, are you willing to draw? Or are you going to continue to push for the solo?
01 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 1911: No, Germany. I did not support his attack. Look at the big map....I supported your attack which was not successful because he supported Belgium from Picardy and English channel.

England, please move from London to English Channel, you'll be unsucessful, but itll break his support for Belgium and give us the advantage.
01 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 1911: I will continue to support Holland to Belgium.
01 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 1911: Russia, I notice you didn't answer my question about your willingness to draw
02 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 1911: You are right. i haven't answered you. That's true, in part, because your draw proposal is contingent upon the destruction of England. I won't betray my allies England and Germany.

Italy, if you want a four way draw, why don't you pick straws with France?
02 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 1911: Very well, if you absolutely insist then a five-way draw then so be it. My flag is up. Germany and France, is that reasonable to you?
02 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1911: Germany, England, I see that both of you have voted to draw. Would you like for me to draw as well? I've got a good opportunity to win this game outright without breaking our alliance, but my success might take some time and depends on both of you. I'll end this game if you ask me to forgo the win or if you believe that I'm taking advantage of your goodwill and your commitment to our alliance is wavering.

Please advise.
03 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1911: I would like for you to draw. I realize that my opinion doesn't matter too much, since without your support, I'm gone in a year, but a draw would be the best outcome for me.
03 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1911: Draw plz.
03 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1911: At Germany's request, I'll concede to a draw.

It seems as though Italy may not have been genuine in his offer to draw. His success in turkey will be short lived. The midatlantic is about to crack and both France and Italy have bare backsides.
03 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1911: Come on Italy draw
03 Oct 14 UTC Good game all!
03 Oct 14 UTC Good game!
