03 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1901: Bonsoir, tout le monde. C'est moi! Bon chance!
03 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1901: Hiya France. And yes, good luck one and all.
03 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1901: Good game all!
03 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1901: Good luck!
06 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1902: Italy and Turkey have signed into a defensive pact. This means that any attack on Turkish or Italian soil will activate the pact and both countries will act accordingly. This does not include any offensive act by either nation, in which the attacker will be standing alone.
06 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1902: Interesting, thanks for letting us know. I do have a few concerns though:

-What constitutes an attack on a nation? The physical taking, or invasion of an SC, or DMZ, or would lying be treated as an attack as well?

-If in the case that both countries take offensive action simultaneously (e.g. Turkey takes Greece from me, while I take Bulgaria all in the same phase), would that still trigger you to go to war with me?

-Let's say, hypothetically, I attacked Turkey. And let's also say, hypothetically, for the sake of argument, that they were asking for it, by trying to trick me into taking Rumania. If I take offensive action first with some justification, would that be okay?
06 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1902: I said the terms.
06 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1902: Any lawyers in the house? May need contract mediation.
06 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1902: :-)
06 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1902: Lying is not an attack, Austria.......:-))
06 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1902: Excited we're going to get to see the Italo-Turkish Defense Pact in action so soon!
06 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: Sure are
12 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1904: Well, looks like that's the end of my empire. I never thought I would get knocked out in the second year by 4 countries at once! Fair play to all of you, and enjoy conquering the rest of Europe.
12 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1904: Good luck in the next one!
15 Nov 20 UTC Surprise!
15 Nov 20 UTC No doubt we all have immaculate logic for all our moves and this turn of events.
15 Nov 20 UTC Good game all.

My logic was simply that I didn't like my prospects of long-term survival if R/I/T remained intact, and to their credit (or maybe detriment), that alliance was unbreakable into '05.
15 Nov 20 UTC I was mostly sulking and it's all Italy's fault. The silver-tongued rogue convinced me to keep my fleets at bay while Italy/Turkey amassed seven. SEVEN! There's hardly room to cram 'em all in.
15 Nov 20 UTC Yeah, their fleets were crazy. GG everybody!
15 Nov 20 UTC Lol. That happened quickly.
15 Nov 20 UTC I’ve created 6 with a 7 day entry period for anyone interested.
15 Nov 20 UTC Thanks, Ron, but I'm taking a few days off. Have some poker tournaments lined up this week. Likely run into y'all again, well played.
15 Nov 20 UTC Good luck and no worries, sure it will fill up. Been good the last couple of games.
