Game drawn
07 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1998: Italy yes I'll support you in.
07 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1998: Russia you going for Lith and Warsaw, leaving Gdansk for me?
07 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1998: Can you get England to stop attacking me?
07 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1998: Germany . . . Yes, that's fine. Poland seems very very quiet, so probably no opposition?
07 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1998: You can ask me yourself, Italy! I believe you were the one attacking me, but if you've decided it was a bad idea I'm fine with that.

Germany, I'd rather protect Bor now, then support you in Spring. I'll give support from And this turn though on the offchance that Spain does something other than holding.
07 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1998: OK that's fine we all seem to be in agreement then, thank you.
08 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1998: Germany . . . Do you know why you didnt get Gda?
Turkey . . . . Would you like help with Egypt?
08 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1998: Russia, why don't you help me with Turkey, rather than the other way around? :)
08 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1998: Russia, if you're looking to open another front, I suppose going via Iran wouldn't be a bad idea... However I feel that the southeast corner isn't the best place to shift all your armies.
08 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1998: Thanks for your replies.
11 May 15 UTC Spring, 1999: Germany, can you support Seville to Madrid?
11 May 15 UTC Spring, 1999: already set.
11 May 15 UTC Spring, 1999: Italy, if you plan to hit Turkey (e.g. in Israel), why aren't we working together to better maximuze efforts?
11 May 15 UTC Spring, 1999: Italy, please back off your fleets. I'd rather not have to retaliate in the Balkans.
12 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1999: Why did you go and ruin a good partnership Britain?? Russia how do you feel about this??
12 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1999: We must clearly unite against England. He tried for Sweden too. Mind you turkey also tried for Georgia while I was helping him with Egypt! Some players just aren't to be trusted.
12 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1999: As a token of long lasting trust, may I offer you Lithuania?
12 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1999: I'm glad there is at least one player who sticks to his word, I don't count my attack on Italy as a betrayal as he attacked me right from the outset, I was just waiting for the right moment. Daft thing is I was going to let England have Bar and Paris anyway to balance things up, but now its war. As for Lit lets see who needs it most after the spring moves ok?
12 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1999: Or, to keep borders safer, I have Lithuania and you take warsaw?
12 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1999: That would tidy things up, but as I say lets see who needs it most after spring, Lit not going anywhere it can cause a problem.
12 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1999: Germany, I saw your troops massing on the Italian and Russian borders and feared that this was the start of a solo attempt that needed balancing out. Turns out I was only half right, as you weren't going after Russia.
If your really did intend to maintain balance by giving up those centres anyway, peace is still an option, and I shall not make further moves on your territory unless given reason to.

Russia, look more carefully. I was supporting Sweden in case of an attack, not attacking you. I never intended to go after you and if you leave me alone that is the way it will stay.
12 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1999: Britain, I'm very disappointed in you especially after all the help in Spain I had afforded you. If you agree to return Belgium to me and with Russia's agreement we could return to our 3 way partnership
12 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1999: I think that is a very generous offer. I think you should have Paris too.
12 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1999: No I'm happy for him to have Paris, I was thinking we could have a nice Pink/Brown/whatever your colour is map in the end. Its up to him to come back and confirm acceptance and of course act accordingly.
13 May 15 UTC Spring, 2000: Alright then, two of my builds are down in the south to show that I mean you no further harm.
13 May 15 UTC Spring, 2000: OK, so I'll take Italian mainland + Cro, Hun, Ser and Greece, Britain takes Africa, Russia takes Turkey, Rum etc. all agree?
13 May 15 UTC Spring, 2000: Russia you still on for Lit, War swap?
13 May 15 UTC Spring, 2000: Agreed your division, and ok for Lit / War swap.
13 May 15 UTC Spring, 2000: Ok, I'll sup you into Lit from War, can you sup me into War from Gda, I'll move Pru into Gdato stop Lit retreating there.
13 May 15 UTC Spring, 2000: Yep. Will do. The new fleet at Mur by the way, is just in case England becomes a little . . . .impetuous . . . again. A little insurance policy. Simples.
13 May 15 UTC Spring, 2000: As is mine in Demark
13 May 15 UTC Spring, 2000: Message received and understood. I shall not be initiating anything against the two of you, and the proposed division of land sounds alright.
15 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2000: Forgot to say when I was initially defeated, good game everyone, and good luck!
16 May 15 UTC Spring, 2001: Other than taking Serbia I shall be making no moves unless my allies request me too, so as not to bounce anyone's moves, OK?
17 May 15 UTC Spring, 2001: Thanks.
20 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2002: Egypt . . .please feel free to take Saudi Arabia.
20 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2002: Russia do you want support into Bulg from Rum?
20 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2002: Only just found your message, but thanks anyway. You could kindly support my hold there now . . .
20 May 15 UTC Spring, 2003: Yep no problem.
20 May 15 UTC Spring, 2003: How about I support Britain into Greece to try and get this game finnished, what do you both think?
20 May 15 UTC Spring, 2003: I have Ionian going to Eastern Med at the moment to help with the African centres, but I can move Maltese in after it and take the support in Autumn.
21 May 15 UTC Spring, 2003: OK no problem the Autumn will be fine
21 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2003: I'm happy to either carry on or end if you prefer. Long term allegiances work well don't they?
21 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2003: Might as well finish them off before drawing would be my vote, but I'll!vote draw now if the rest do.
23 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2004: Finish me off? But I've fought so hard for survival!!! :)
I could have quit WAY back.
Let them live! Let them live! Let them live! :)
24 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2004: Egypt, you have melted my heart. I vote draw.
24 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2004: Your call Britain I'll draw now if you do.
24 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2004: I have a heart of stone... :P
26 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2005: melting... melting...
26 May 15 UTC Good game, thank you partners
