28 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: * Yes to a G army in Kiel ...
28 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Very well.
28 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Let's move to the next steps

To Austria : could you please support my TUS fleet from VEN ?
29 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: We are sorry for not having responded sooner, the most honourable Tsar will probably already know I was occupied by work in my homelands due to a sudden illness which appearance stroke fear into the heart of my people. Also, there was an issue with hunting foxes which has now been resolved.

We're not too sure of why this is needed, but we can give this order for the army in Venice, dear greatest sultan.
29 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: In the mean time, we will not conscript anyone from the peaceful surrendering french provinces but let them enjoy their lands so they find peace, solace and prosperity in their homes.
29 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1906: Thank you to the Tsar
29 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1906: Austria, could you support ION from ADR ?
29 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1906: My armed forces have received complimentary tickets to see the Liverpool derby live in Anfield!
Oh days of joy!

I would invite all of my friends to come along and cheer along, but unfortunately it is too late for Austria and Turkey to make the trip.

Tsar, would you join me?
We shall have a couple of pints and scream our brains out in the stadium.
I suggest you begin your travel via Norwegian Sea as the weather will be calm and no storms are brewing.
29 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1906: You are too kind, dear Kaiser. An honor guard of sailors will follow your convoy onwards!
01 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1906: Dear greatest Sultan, we have ordered our army to support the stay of your troops in Tuscany, they will provide fresh grain and cheese, we've heard, these are vital ingrediants for the local cuisine, so this will keep your troops and the population happy.

As requested, we will also support your fleet in the Ionian Sea and bring fresh fruits and vegetables to your sailors. If there is some speciality we should include, please state it so we can include it in this delivery.

We are delighted to hear that in these times, there are still peaceful events, like some football games, occuring, dear most benevolent Kaiser. This is another sign that the people yearn for the peaceful world we are fighting for. We wish you all good luck and fun and may the best team win.
01 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1906: Thank you, the Tsar and I will bring you a couple of yerseys as presents.
I wonder how life is in beautiful France, do you think I should pack my bags and have an excursion there or my troops would be best served staying in the safety of German controlled lowlands?
01 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1906: We are a bit concerned some leaders on the island try to make a run for the continent if you do, but then again, we are sure you have already prepared for that.
01 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1906: My newly conscripted battalion is full of green boys, and will therefore remain stationed in the province of Kiel until needed urgently somewhere else.
Hopefully, the time for them being called upon will not come and peace will be established long before any action is required from them.
02 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Thank you Austria, can you go on support ION ?
03 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: How can the Norwegian Navy be of assistance? Support Clyde to Edi?
03 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Dear friends, our coalition has yielded incredible results.
Who could have expected such a turn of events?

As I see it, Europe could finally have peace in a couple of years time.

Arrangements should be made between us to make this continent forever devoid of war and tragedy.

Tsar, as you see there is no threat to your Scandinavian holdings, and there won't ever be a threat such as that.
You have shown faith in your allies by not conscripting a battalion, and surely you must be at peace with that decision now.
I heard from your courtiers that you always dreamed about the green hills of Scotland, and I will be happy to introduce you to my dear Scottish friends this year.

Archduke, my dear cousin, I would love to march to Paris with your help, as I hear women there are the most precious sight one could cast his eyes upon.
However it may be prudent to make sure your Spanish contingent is safe, and I will have to make that journey on my own.

The most Glorious Sultan of the Ottoman Empire will soon make progress west, maybe this year will be a preparatory one still.

Eagerly I await the response of my brethren, and their blessing of my proposition.
Maybe there are improvements to be made in those plans.
03 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Indeed, it has always been a dream of mine since being a little child! Thank you, Kaiser.

I believe it is time that the good people of Munich return to serving their rightful ruler as well. God's peace reigns.
03 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Wonderful news!
The people of Bavaria will rejoice.
Their lives have been immensely enriched by Russian culture, and already they are printing books and music created by greatest of Russian minds to be spread across the country once Munich is repatriated.
03 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Dear most benevolent Kaiser, there is one suggestion we want to make, since you have the most grandious flotilla in the north, the great harbour of Brest would fit much better to your administration than the city of Paris, as great of a river the Seine is. We would like to give you the support for this mission to show the rest of the world that the North Atlantic Sea would be safe again for trade under guidance.

Dear greatest Sultan, with pleasure will we provide further logistics for your soldiers and your fleet in the Ionian Sea. We hope you can soon join us in the southern west to bring our peace to the peoples there.
04 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Since we didn't hear a response in time, we're changing to support your march into Paris, as you first suggested. We like to talk about this again in the near future.
04 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Ah, less than ideal outcome but a favourable one nevertheless. My troops shall defend the provinces of Benelux this year, and I shall attempt to help my brethren through the back-waters of Iberia.
The struggle for peace shall continue and ultimately prevail.
04 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: The Edinburgh factories will produce scotch, not armaments.
05 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: We're sorry to be back this late, but we needed to go into every house we currently administer and turn around the table after we've seen the effects of the change in our orders. Of course we made sure to carefully empty the table beforehand and put the table back afterwards in prime condition.
06 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1907: The oil patches of the North Sea are very fine at this time of year. Shall the Russian or German navy take a vacation there? Or shall we meet for military exercises in the name of demilitarization?
06 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1907: The Sublime Porte intends to unite all the Muslim of the Mediterranean Shores Under the flag of the Umma.
06 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1907: Brave Danish sailors will finally enter the fray in order to destroy the last remaining bastion of western tyranny in London.

Denmark will be vacated and left to the discretion of the most esteemed Tsar.

Kiel army will station itself in Ruhr to prevent any mischievous ideas that may occur to english sailor in the fall.

It is the duty of you and me Archduke, to bring peace to the French people in this year.
I suggest Picardy supports Gascony to Brest in the spring, Brest support Picardy to Paris in the fall, and the righteous battle is finished and won!

The fearsome Sultan will stop the exploitation of Tunis and only thing that keeps Europe from uniting in the dawn of a new age is the rouge pirate party in Portugal which will be dealt with swiftly.
06 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1907: You know, Russia and Turkey could pretty easily Juggernaut at this point. Austria is wide open and those three armies could do a lot of damage.
06 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1907: All good and agreed.
06 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1907: It is vital that we put our generals in line this time cousin, I have sent my order to the camp in Picardy as I suggested in a letter for You.
06 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1907: AGHAST I AM to hear such treacherous whispers in a time such as this!!

A vipers hiss!

The devil's temptation!
06 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1907: A pretty good strategy. How would you and Austria even manage to resist?
06 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1907: If I juggernaut with Russia then who will win solo ?

I am more than happy to have our long agreed 4-way draw.

With moving its northern fleet to Edi Russia made clear we can finish France and England safely.
06 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1907: And as previously said. Neither of us need further builds !
06 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1907: surely Austria and me need not to resist anything, as the integrity of the Eastern powers are stronger than the lowly desire to burn and plunder the lands of Europe.

Clearly, the western powers are beyond redemption, and still they haven't embraced the ideology of peace we are bringing to their lands.
06 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1907: Well said Kaiser
07 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1907: Dear most benevolent Kaiser, we, again, want to point out the advantages for your fleet the grand harbour of Brest will give for the control of the northern seas. For this reason, we will send our troops the order to support your march this season into Brest, so you can experience the vast coastlines of the Bretangne yourself.

If we don't hear in time from you, we will fall back to your suggested angle of attack, though we think you will see the benefits of Aremorica.
07 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1907: I shall move to Brest then dear Archduke
07 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1907: May the cargo of your ships always be filled with plenty of trading goods.
07 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1907: My footsoldiers from Picardy will learn to swim as soon as they enter the Brest harbour.
Or they will drown trying.
07 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1907: We are almost there
07 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1907: The grand coalition will soon prevail!
08 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: Supremely dignified rulers of prosperous nations, this is my final letter to you in time of war. Peace is inevitable.

Bestowed upon me was the duty of leading the enlightened coalition militarily.
A duty and a calling which was zealously followed, enforced with great efficiency, passion and swiftness.

With your blessings, my person asks a reward; not greater than the gift of life that was given to me when I was faced with the remnants of my fathers terrible reign, a gift given by you, most wise and benevolent, best of men.

The reward I seek is to immortalize the absolution of a sin which plagued my nation, a sin of lusting blood, power, domination and control over men, through war.

I wish to retire all soldiers. That includes Admiral Eroberer and his band of men which are sailing the seas for 4 years spearheading the exportation of peace.
They should lay down their swords and shields forever, and revel in glory that awaits them on shores where beautiful women sing sad songs of their sailors gone, in Portugal.

Let us draw the image symbolizing the ultimate exultation of serenity which permeates our continent.

Humbly yet dignified,
Wilhelm Jr.
The Redeemed One
10 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: Exeunt England.
10 Mar 20 UTC It is in this time I believe that the remaining powers should sign a declaration of peace which will persist while Europe exists.
11 Mar 20 UTC The peace of God.
11 Mar 20 UTC yeah
11 Mar 20 UTC GG all.

Sorry my activity level dropped off after a bit. That was one of the strangest games I've ever played. I thought about stabbing the turn that Italy supported me into Munich but I wasn't sure the west would react to help me... and instead I'd become the villain and get attacked.
11 Mar 20 UTC Obviously for me this was a great success and a fine game, I had no right to survive let alone finish the game in a leading position.
So I am thrilled to have achieved this by diplomatic means in global chat.
None of this would happen if the three of you had not backed me, but you did and I am both grateful and proud of the outcome.

A win over the western hegemony for the Non-Aligned Movement and his pole bearer Drug Tito. :)
11 Mar 20 UTC I must admit that your initial pleading was very eloquent and getting you on board against F and E very efficient.

Without you, I am not sure we would have crossed the slatemate line.

Happy you finished first, you deserve it.
11 Mar 20 UTC Thank you, I had a lot of fun creating the messages and playing with intelligent allies.
