Le jeu a commencé! Bonne chance mes amis!

Président Loubet
20 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1901: (Germany and Italy need to turn on their ability to receive messages. Just saying!)
20 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1901: Britain is coming out of isolation.

We wish no troubles with any of you fellow, reasonably great nations, but do know: the Queen is present, and one's presence is truly Majestic.

HRH

P.S. Germany and Russia have never dabbled in this great game before. Hence, one begs you treat them gently at first and be patient.
20 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1901: Oh and you'll hate to see one present again, but do note the 24 hours of the round begins after the last order is sent. Hence, the deadline for this round is 5.51. Keep an eye on it. In theory, if you update at the same time every day, you'll have no issue, but keep an eye on it.
Best regards,
HRH
20 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1901: Mon dieu!

Who would have thought the Germans would be the last to move? Where is their infamous blitzkrieg!!!
20 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1901: You neglect the calculating minds that consider every possibility of every move, and only then do they rampage. I am sure Kaiser Zac has spent the last five hours looking at the board and nothing else.
21 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1901: A note to the Kaiser that he may wish to cancel his votes; one assumes they were accidental.
HRH
24 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1902: Queenie

Cest a most excellent plan!

As agreed, my Ruhr army will support your Holland to Kiel move and unless the Krauts support Kiel with the Berlin army then you have your foothold into Germany!

We, of course, still need to discuss what happens in the Lowlands but that's for another day.

Vive La France!

Loubet
25 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: This is fun
25 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: did I miss a turn?
25 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: Im afraid you chose to move to Serbia this turn, and did not miss a turn.
HRH
26 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1903: damn
26 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1903: I'm enjoying the implication that when the Austro-Hungarian emperor heard the Archduke had been assassinated and he had very little choice but to enter a continental war, his reaction was a lowercase 'damn'.
HRH
26 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1903: I'd like you all to appreciate my screwed up convoy to Belgium
HRH
26 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: An interesting manoeuvre
27 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.
27 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: I'm assuming he was in Eastern European time
HRH
27 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: Une journée entière de retard. Complètement inacceptable!

01 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1905: The Austro-Hungarian Empire offers its complete and unconditional surrender.
01 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1905: You treacherous dogs!
01 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Merde!
03 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Fellow Rulers and Rulées,
The Eastern front was especially exciting this Spring! Not to say you've reached a stalemate, but a bit of WD40 might help your borders nonetheless. Best of luck with it all,
HRH
04 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Au revoir mes amis. Dieu est toujours du côté des grands bataillons.
