26 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1901: ITALIAN STATE RADIO:

The kingdom of Tunis cheers as Italian fleet arrives of the coast. Promises Italian intervention in the Tunis civil unrest is cheered by the locals. Italian armies occupy Pie as French forces withdraw to Gas. A new arms program is proclaimed in Rome. "The might of the Legions will be known again."
26 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1901: I’m not sure whether I liked that or hated it
26 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1901: I think I liked it
27 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1901: a little bit of larping never hurt anyone lmao
27 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1901: I know right
27 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1901: Just adding a bit of flavor.
27 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1901: just adding a bit of basil to the diplomatic pizza pie, paisan

AUSTRIAN STATE RADIO: As the people of Tunisia cheer and welcome the Italians, the Italian navy has begun to seize all of the military and industrial capabilities of the city of Tunis. Little do the people know they are now pawns of a deep Roman plot to craft the perfect pizza, with ingredients harvested from all over Europe. Only conquest can satisfy the appetite of the Italian war machine
27 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1901: Damn right.
19 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1905: New Rome State Radio: The Great Patriotic War is upon us. The sons of Reich march to our borders with song of glory and conquest. Every man women and child is called upon to protect the dawn of New Rome. From Africa to Iberia the liberated of oppressed regimes rally behind the the legions of New Rome.
20 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1905: The sons of the Reich extend an olive branch to the Liegions. The miscommunications have led to tensions increasing. The Kaiser asks the Italian Emporer for peace
21 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1905: The Normans, despairing of weak French leadership, have struck out on their own, crossing the Channel from Brest. The next Norman invasion is underway, as the proud descendants of William the Bastard forge their own way in a world rent by war
26 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1907: whoops, i nmr'd yall, sorry
29 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: Mad props to England and France. So many games players just quit when things go south so early. Thanks Guys.
29 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: What do you mean? A Frenchman never surrenders! That's their reputation, right?
29 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: My appologies to the Glory of France.
04 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: Well seems there’s a massive anti German conspiracy at work here
04 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: We desire all your Beer and you did not invite us to October Fest.
04 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: Damn that email invite must’ve not sent
04 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: Well said
04 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: I can hook y’all up with some November brews
04 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: That would be great. If you can have them ready in Berlin the invading and pillaging hoards are getting very thirsty.
04 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: Awwwww in that case then no brews for you
07 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1909: New Russia
07 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1909: Hey new russia you wanna help old germany?
07 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1909: Hey New Russia, wanna help la belle France?
09 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: In this game I’ve been apart of some killer irony. I switched sides like Italy and waived the white flag like France
09 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: Well I wouldn't say I switched sides. I offered you part of a draw. You then attacked me.
09 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: Yeah, from what I saw Germany kinda just attacked everyone.
09 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: I am still open for a draw :)
09 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: Honestly. I got a desire to wrap this up. Things outside game to attend to. I was getting the impression jolly old England was going to cross the Channel and attack.
09 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: Once Germany is gone. I will go ahead and put in the the Draw vote. Anyone not make a move against me can be part of it. Provided they can settle issues with anyone next door. Though I can see why England may of thought I was going to attack with me fleets. I did intend to as I thought England was going to attack me. I really wanted to work on setting up a big draw this game. Never done so before. Figured it would be a good learning experince.
09 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: My joke was referring to Italy and France in real life. Saying I did both of those things
09 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: My downfall was greed
09 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: Fair enough
09 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: It's diplomacy. Greed is all our downfall, even if we win the game :-)
09 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: Indeed this was a good game though. Can’t say I’ve ever seen an Italian-Austrian alliance works so well
11 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: I'm also okay with ending the game soon. I had fun
11 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: Tomorrow is armistice day too, coincidentally
13 Nov 18 UTC Peace in our time!
13 Nov 18 UTC Thank god
13 Nov 18 UTC gg everybody
