16 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 4: Okay its yours

I asked you in the Begginng if you wanted it you said no keep it
16 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 4: Yeah but I didn't realise you were such an honest player and now I feel bad xD
16 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 4: I will move out of Leptis its all yours
16 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 4: Thank you. I will not take Phazania and I'll leave you alone to keep the Romans in check. I'll go see off those pesky Persians, hopefully with the Greeks chipping in ;)
16 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 4: There i told you i am a man of my word
16 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 4: Thank you Carthage. I'll leave you alone and focus on the pesky Persians.
18 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 5: Truce Persia? I won't go further than Sidon. Not a great deal for you, but gives you a chance to stay in.
18 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 5: Sounds like an attempt to take cyprus and keep sidon this autumn
18 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 5: I could take either. I just don't want to take more of Persia or else Greece is going to dominate.
18 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 5: Wait if you stop on Persia then you will come West towards me
18 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 5: hey carthage
egypt is definitely gonna betray you
you do realise that right
just doing a public service and letting ya know
18 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 5: Greece is going to dominate, what rubbish.
18 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 5: I'd get one more SC possibly. Egypt would betray Carthage, then both myself and Persia
18 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 5: I was clearly lying to Persia. I like Carthage, they're not causing me any problems xD
18 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 5: 'Greece is going to dominate, what rubbish.' Greece proceeds to invade Egypt. Nice move by Persia to jump in among you though.
18 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 5: That was a defensive move. I anticipated Egypt to move through based on previous
18 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 5: As I say Persia, I'm not going to push you any further. Do with your freedom what you want.
19 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 6: It's just occurred to me that Rome and Greece agreed that DMZ without saying anything in the chat, tad suspicious.
19 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 6: lol, report it if you wish. I'm fairly sure that moves speak for themselves, no need to verbally agree it.
19 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 6: No Verab agreement is better
19 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 6: If I'm wrong then I'm wrong. Just seems odd is all.
20 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 6: Game moderators got back to me and both players are clean. I apologise for my wrong accusations.
21 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 6: well rip me
21 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 7: I did offer to leave you alone. I was a bad offer, but better than nothing.
21 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 7: I wish Rome would cheekily invade Greece. Betrayal is one of the most fun parts of the game and you should embrace it, I promise you won't regret it!
21 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 7: Only works if you don't constantly betray
21 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 7: Persia I don't intend on taking Antioch
21 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 7: So gracious of you to offer Persia peace after you take all of their lands!
21 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 7: I know!
21 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 7: Greece, fyi I only built in Ravenna to continue to keep two armies on the border as a detterent. The army at gaul will not be moving back.
23 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 7: Egypt Please come and Take my centers so Rome wont ill hold on as long as i can
23 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 7: I can try, little preoccupied. I'm fairly confident Rome has won this game. Greece and I are going to fight it out for ages whilst Rome can nibble away at each of us at any moment. I mean, Greece actually left it's home provinces open.
23 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 7: ill accept peace tho thx
28 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 9: See Greeceyour best pla Rome is Stabbing you What a shame
28 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 9: Maybe Greece would be willing to call a truce with me so that we can knock back Rome?
28 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 9: Maybe
29 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 9: I have already moved back in anticipation
29 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 9: Egypt, you are bad at truces
30 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 9: You're only saying that because you've realised that without me also attacking Greece then you can't beat them.
30 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 9: Greece, im willing to cease attacking you and help against Rome if you're willing.
30 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 10: You siad that last time
30 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 10: Egypt, I don't really trust anything you say. I'll need to see some actions first
30 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 10: Well, you're sort of between a rock and a hard place then.
30 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 10: Indeed but more than happy to pull away from Rome if you back away from a further agreement
30 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 10: I really thought egypt wasnt going to stab that time.
31 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 10: I'm happy to call a draw with you Rome as it's going to take ages for us to settle up. And as Greece has done really well, I think it would be nice to extend this to them as well.
31 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 10: We should probably play out the rest of the year first :)
31 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 10: I feel like I may hit 18
31 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 10: Is it only 18? You might have this then
31 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 10: Yeah I just checked the link and it says 18 to win so I'm going to take Leptis next year. Looks like everything else is pretty much a stalemate so the year will hopefully go fast.
