05 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Hello all! Good luck!
06 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Hi everyone, nice to meet you all! Let the party begin!
06 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Italy also wishes you all a happy demise.
07 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: The government of Italy wishes to apologize to the good Austrian Nation for our repeated attempts to occupy Trietse. The overzealous General of the Italian 2nd Army (who was born and raised in Trieste, only 50 miles from the Italian border) is facing disciplinary action.
08 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: We only accept his apology with a public hanging and a an invitation for our Army First DIvision to dine in Venice on a gondola under the moonlight.
10 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: So, 'vengeance is mine, sayeth the Austrian'? Besides wasting a few of our precious munitions, we in Rome feel there has been no harm done...
11 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1903: Damn. That's not going to work. You can't support me to the north coast, and neither can the Aegean, because the north cost doesn't border either of you. Make it the south coast, and I'll move the Aegean into Constantinople in autumn.
11 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1903: Oh jeez. Any chance I can get all of you to ignore that? <_<
11 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1903: ;)
11 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1903: ha ha ha
12 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1903: don't worry turk I've had that happen to me before
14 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: Let us see, E and F have 47% of the board right now. Sorry Kaiser, Italy is consumed with survival.
26 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1907: Italian Master of Puppets, Giusseppe Mussolini, marveled at the creation his friend and sometimes rival from London had created. English Master of Puppets Javier M. has created the exact duplicate of Austrian Emperor Franz Joseph (even down to the infectious skin disease). Puppet Franz Joseph was operating out of Vienna in just such a way as masterful puppets have been known to do in the past. This puppet willing throws all his forces against a possible alliance that could stop the English win. Right now, the puppet Franz Joseph has brought an eastern alliance nearly to its knees as Warsaw and possibly Budapest could fall. Warsaw's fall could begin a domino effect where, ironically, Vienna itself, lying below the so-called stalemate line, becomes the 18th domino.
28 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Nice game England. Sorry we couldn't have put up a better fight.
30 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1908: I guess that's it. Not how I wanted it to end, but there you are.
