01 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 1904: I am surprised you'd do this thing to me.
You think you'll win against us two, I laugh!
The Turks will move from South, and I from North.
Together we will go from Warsaw, east!
01 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 1905: Archduke of Austria I will support
To Vienna a move from Budapest.
01 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 1905: Should France with me choose to stand,
we shall beat them hand in hand.
01 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 1905: France, do the math, I think I needn't say.
The way it looks right now the British fall.
The Turks have seven cities to their name.
And I have five against the Russian's six.
02 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: There is no better friend to Germany,
Than France and Turkey in this world today.
02 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: Tyrolia to V'enna please support.
03 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: All I was trying to do was save Austria, because he was my friend, which I didn't realize at the beginning of the game. I'm down for another alliance now, and I'm not trying to do iambic pentameter anymore, because it's too difficult to do.
03 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: M'thinks that it's too late for you "my friend"
You lack the gut of one who fights till end!
So I will call for total war from Turks!

They have betrayed us once in favour of,
The common enemy we so despised!
We made a peace which broke of Russian lack!
And now as she begins to lose, she begs?

I knew the moment that this war began,
That Russia had a heart of twine and twigs!
It blows about in wind, from here to there!

As on the Calvary the Romans sung,
Now Russia sings her realizations past!

So help Vienna to Galacia move,
I'll take Silesia, and the Tsarist lands
Will tremble at the might of German steel!

While Russian temper and her steel are both
As weak and fragile as her heart and mind.
Her sword will break as Russian steel does tend.
For as her tempers bad in life, it's too in sword
03 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: "Oh no," she cries! My friend is lost, by you!
But I feel not the love of saving friends!
I know what must be done, if France were lost,
I'd rush with sword in hand, to smite t'ill nought,
But dust and blood are left of heathens gone!

While you accept our peace, until I hold,
Then stab my back! As Judas, for his coin!

Well, have you got it now? The coin, I mean?
My horse-drawn men will bring, three decades stones!
I hope that will suffice to you, the traitor of my pax.

And also with them come my knights, with swords!
Let's see if you'll accept their gift with arms!
For if you do, they'll cut them off, then see!
03 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: Onward,we charge! No more shall we lie still,
As we are beaten down; now strike and smite!
They cans't not yet withstand our blows on them.
04 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: My friend in France, I fear I beg for help!
I need support to Denmark for next turn.
And if you could I'd ask you bounce in Kiel.
04 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: And Turks, I recommend, the moves herein:
Ukraine should hit Moscow, to block support.
Use Rum and Arm to move to Sev next turn.
And I will take Warsaw for self as's fair.
04 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: your request has been heard, my german brother
my armies and fleets are at your orders.
05 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Moderator: (bo_sox48): Paused by request. If you object to this pause, please email
06 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Hey, out of iambic pentameter for a message, I have two weeks of real life stuff coming up. Sorry for the inconvenience, but if you wouldn't mind pausing that'd be really cool.
06 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: That's fine, love this game and Germany's been great.
06 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Yeah, I don't mind pausing! (And I'll be out of the game soon as well but that's just the way it is -_0_- )
Sorry for not being very vocal. It takes me a lot of time to write up a message and I've unfortunately run into a busy kind of schedule :/
07 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: GameMaster: Spooderman69 was banned: multi/meta/no reply.
07 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Can we know which nation he was, so we know which nation is changing leadership?
I know it's supposed to be anonymous, but it doesn't help to know the player name.
08 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: There has been a proletariat revolution in Russia, new leadership is in place.
08 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Thanks!
08 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: How come Russia always has Bolshevik revolutions?
08 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Must be something in the water.
21 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: And so I'm back, from places with no net,
I'm here, and thus I guess the game goes on!
I'll vote unpause, and when all's good, we'll go.
24 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Russia, vote unpause.
26 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 1907: Will you support Warsaw to Moscow now?
Or should I help you move to there with Sev?
I'm right with both so say your choice to me.
27 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 1907: Both you guys are being total bitches.
27 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 1907: On how the Russians wax poetic Now,
I wish to lead invasions of Moscow,
From great Ukraine, and unlike Gettysburg,
Thou shall charge north, and claim st. Petersburg!
27 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 1907: You are a loser it would seem who's sore!
27 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 1907: A proposition which I can't refuse!
I'm lost for words other than thanks to you!
The Turks and Allemains 've not always made,
But in this war, apparently, it's so!
The sons of Ludwig and of Constantine,
Have, now at least, made awesome gains in force!
27 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 1907: Twould seem he hears the burden rough indeed.
27 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 1907: And Franks to West, the sons of Charlemagne,
You are the best! You've helped a lot and gained,
The British Isles as William of old!
Superb we are as friends, so strong, so great!
As founder of the Byzantines was then,
So Kaiser, Sultan, President are now!
As strong as ever are our lands, an yet,
They are the weakest they will be! From here,
Lies Africa, the Orient, and more!
Th'New World lies seas away, yet closer now.
28 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Dear France, I must admit, I fear your moves.
To Burgandy, your armies moved, and now,
Although I know you won't betray, I'll block.
I would agree to bounce in Mun. as well.
However, if you're fine with this, I'll stay.
T'is better to remain as friends, with walls,
For though they block our view, they keep us safe.
Would you agree to this? I think it's fair.
28 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: No french army will cross your frontiers, my dear german ally.
My burgundian army is just on his way to any belgian pub,
I've heard the beer is excellent up there.
30 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 1908: Methinks that I shall hold this turn, for though I could match forth and spread, as to our treaty I want not power over thee.
30 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 1908: Should be a shame to accidentally break alliance by winning!
30 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 1908: I thank for kindness Turkish friend, I will!
Warsaw t'Livonia will move and on.
We as a team must take but 3 SCs
And once it's done we'll draw, as to the plan.
30 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 1908: A treaty must be ironclad or else,
Men's words will be but naught! And peace art dead.
30 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 1908: France, I am a big fan of your baguettes,
Please support me into Sweden this phase.
30 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 1908: But I'm afraid that France cannot, ask me!
I'll think, although... It seems I've things to do.
31 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 1908: German brother, you don't have to ask for supports,
the last of the viking centers is yours.
31 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 1908: My friend from Turkey, from the West blue fleets you see coming
but don't feel worried, only defensive positions they are taking
31 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: I think you know, but L'vonia will move,
To gates of Petersburg, next turn, with help.
31 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: Then my support you have.
31 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: Why don't Turkey support you there,
while I support you to Sweden
and so we wipe the english devil out forever?
31 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: You've got my thanks, and my support in this.
I'll move to Swed and to St. Petersburg.
01 Apr 19 UTC I'm prepped to draw as all should be by now.
01 Apr 19 UTC There you got my vote
01 Apr 19 UTC My thanks to all my friends who've drawn this eve,
T'has been a game of intrigue and great fun!
With fights, and ire enough to fill a sea.
But now it's done, and we move on ourselves.
Good luck to all of you in coming games,
I wish you fortune and success, my friends.
02 Apr 19 UTC Congrats to all, to each great praise, this is a game that will live on in mem'ry
