29 Jun 20 UTC Spring, 1904: If you really are sorry about it you can support me into NTH from Edi
30 Jun 20 UTC Spring, 1904: Eh, that's nonideal, but we have a far more workable position now, Russia.
30 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: Well well well Italy... you’ll feel the wrath of the French now
30 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: What are you doing now, England?
30 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: I am dead anyway France...
30 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: I don't know what I'm doing at this point, but I would urge France and Italy to ease fighting immediately if we want to hope to stop a 3-way victory between Russia, Germany, and Turkey.

Also Russia, just give me the word.
30 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: Turkey's plan: Trie s Tyr->Ven
30 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: England its to late...
30 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: Well yea, but at least we can say we tried
01 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: Russia, my apologies for Sweden. I saw all the sudden activity around Munich and got cold feet. Still open to a working relationship, but I'll be holding onto it to maintain some parity between us. I'd like to see one of Bohemia, Vienna, or Warsaw disbanded.
01 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: Don't worry Germany, I'll come to your aid if needed!
01 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: Also: sorry Russia, somehow I just ended up ordering all my units to hold last turn. Won't happen again.
02 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: Well, I barely log on for 2 days and look what happens.
02 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1905: Okay, *now* I'm doing Trie s Tyr->Ven.
02 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1905: France can you support hold to Venice?
03 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1905: I will as long as you get out of the Mid-Atlantic Ocean so we’ll have a truce
03 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1905: Thanks Turk, we can hope there's still some mistrust there. Germany, are you thinking Den to North Sea? I can cut Norwegian support but he can still hold. Should I maneuver to Skaggeragnarok?
03 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1905: I mean, if I were France, I'd be looking real hard at why I'd even help Italy at all. He's got a fleet behind your lines and is a nice buffer between Russia and Turkey. Why help him? I'd move Pie to Tuscany with Lyon support.
03 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1905: Who knows, if there's a Russian army in Venice, maybe that Russian army will support a French one to Rome.
03 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1905: I'm ready England.
03 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Russia, I'll assume you don't plan to attack Venice again.
04 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Correct. With France and Italy's alliance (who I have no beef with. Hi guys! Let's crush Germany together?) I don't plan on pursuing that course of action at this moment. Also, I noticed you didn't support that move either time... but with justifiable reasons, of course. I trust you, Turkey, as you can see by my emptying of Austria.
04 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: I am so glad you came around Russia.

France, I would like to apologize for my lack of press regarding you, or at least meaningful press. I stayed silent for tactical reasons.
I promise, I’m not just some Russian fanboy.
04 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Well, my position is rapidly collapsing. Russia, for what it's worth, I'm sorry for sowing mistrust between us, but your maneuvers in Spring '04, combined with your lack of press, spoke to an imminent betrayal. Had it been for some better communication, admittedly, on either of our parts, this could have been avoided.

Sweden will be abandoned for Denmark, and Denmark for Heligoland.
04 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: England, I accept your apology and no worries. I want to work with you more in the future
04 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: 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.
05 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Sorry about the delay, busy day.
05 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Russia, could you support me into Denmark?
05 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Yes.
06 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Do we all have to vote unpause?
06 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: I think it will unpause automatically in a day or so.
07 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Moderator: (Tom Bombadil): I've manually unpaused the game. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
10 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1906: I'm still for drawing after Germany is defeated, just to remind everyone. I realize Italy and Turkey are still at odds.
10 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1906: A 5-way draw seems like a bit much if you ask me, but I guess it depends on whether people are having fun playing or not.
11 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: I'm fine with a 5 way draw
11 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: We can do 4. I don't think Italy will last much more than Germany anyway. Unless they turn things around real quick!
11 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: True true
13 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: 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.
13 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: What do you all want to do now? (Endgame-wise)
13 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Call a draw with 4. F/E/R/T.
14 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1907: Sounds good
15 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: Is it cool if I take Holland?
15 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1908: Go at it.
15 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: Thanks
17 Jul 20 UTC Good game, everyone! :)
17 Jul 20 UTC I had fun.
17 Jul 20 UTC Good game!
17 Jul 20 UTC I know we drew but I definitely think it’s fair to say Russia won this one.
17 Jul 20 UTC I said I'd draw, so I drew. Obviously the thought of soloing crossed my mind but I try to stick to my word, even if it's in a game known for lying.
17 Jul 20 UTC Call it a draw-plus for Russia, then. :)
Good game, all!
