16 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: Russia, are you going to let me have Serbia or not?
16 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: Russia, I would prefer nor, but let's discuss - what do you plan to do with it? A SC fleet might have been better against germany.
16 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: In retrospect, yes. But I do not intend to do anything with it; I shall just leave it floating until you feel it expedient to dislodge it, allowing me to disband it.
16 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: that makes sense Ok
16 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: England - supporting Hel to Den
Turkey - supporting Bul to Ser
16 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: so France, what are your thoughts upon breaking our DMZ? Is this war? I cannot win, but I can make things uncomfortable for you.
16 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: Russia, I thought we agreed that the Black Sea would be a DMZ?
16 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: Russia, thanks. Nor still supports Swed.
16 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: Would it trouble you terribly if I had the same arrangement with you as i do with Russia? That is, I leave the fleet in the Black Sea until you happen to be able to dislodge it, then I can get rid of it and replace it with something more useful. Alternatively, I could skip through Constantinople (with your permission), ensuring I don't take it, and crate havoc in the Med. Otherwise we effectively trap a useless fleet there.
16 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: If you don't feel comfortable with either of those then I'll just leave it there.
17 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: Wait until next turn, I'll buil a fleet and dislodge yours so you can build an army somewhere else
17 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: Many thanks :)
18 Jul 11 UTC Spring, 1903: russia, I will support Bothnia into Sweden? Italy, Turkey, Russia should we all combine against Germany/France? I would be up for a 4 way draw. Russia, looks like you can take Munich or Berlin soon.
18 Jul 11 UTC Spring, 1903: @England - if Russia and Turkey have the juggernaut rolling - which they certainly appear to - they aren't going to need either one of us for any kind of help
18 Jul 11 UTC Spring, 1903: ^they're gonna need the opposite of help
18 Jul 11 UTC Spring, 1903: @Italy, we can play the deciding factor then. Russia, what are your thoughts?
19 Jul 11 UTC Spring, 1903: What do you mean by deciding factor?
19 Jul 11 UTC Spring, 1903: we can help either you/turkey win, or get in the way. Are you up to a 4 way alliance?
20 Jul 11 UTC Spring, 1903: I see; yes, I am. It has worked well so far, has it not?
20 Jul 11 UTC Spring, 1903: yes, Turkey, what will it take for Italy and you to come to terms? No one wins if France gets too big.
20 Jul 11 UTC Spring, 1903: Don't pick on me, you limey ass. You are the one that is putting Germany and Russia against each other so that you can take over the whole north. I know what you are doing. Russia needs to watch its back from the pink offender.
20 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: as a defeated nation i think i can be a partial observer here, it is clear that france is correct, england has been a snake the whole game
20 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: really, am I the one that broke the DMZ in the english channel? You can go back thru the dialogue and see. France, I know this is your first game, and you are getting a bit excited, but try to maintain some composure....
20 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: Russia, I will continue to support Sweden with norway in my effort to take over the north.......
22 Jul 11 UTC Spring, 1904: dear italy: i think it would be beneficial for us to work together
22 Jul 11 UTC Spring, 1904: @Germany. I would like to have France agree and know what you have in mind
22 Jul 11 UTC Spring, 1904: france and i have had a rather cordial relationship so far...it is clear that with england embroiled in a fight in france and austria destroyed, the juggernaut that i believe currently exists seems to have little resistance to steamroll forward...unless we work together.
22 Jul 11 UTC Spring, 1904: I will be happy to ally myself with both Germany and Italy. Hence PIE continuing to be a DMZ.
22 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: Russia, would you like to support me back into Serbia?
26 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: Germany it seems like we are both worried about our borders for no reason.
26 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: yeah i would really like to use these armies elsewhere...
27 Jul 11 UTC Spring, 1906: Germany, Help me into the North sea?
30 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: France, you get Venice and Rome I get Naples and Tunis. Sound fair?
30 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: how about I get Rome and Tunis and you get Venice, Naples and Trieste?
30 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: Fine.
30 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: Fine.
02 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: Turk, go Apu to Ven. I got you.
02 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: Russia, it is not wise to attack me.
04 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1909: OK, I won't attack you
05 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1909: russia, i give you back warsaw, then we can agree to non-agression pact? i think our forces could be better used against other countries.
05 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1909: Turkey, you and me should stick together. Germany only wants to ally with Russia so that he can backstab him and take over the map.
05 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1909: you really like throwing out ridiculous claims...even if I were to bakstab russia, how could I? and I just moved my armies eastward, basically indicating I intend not to backstab him. #nonsense
05 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1909: eastward would be towards russia. #getacompass
05 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1909: yeah messed up there with directions...still won't answer me though
05 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1909: @russia - how about poking Bulgaria?
05 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1909: you backstabbed me, why wouldn't you do it to russia?
05 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1909: Because I physically can't...the only army I have in the east is st petes
05 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1909: Whatever, Russia will decide.
07 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1909: Germany - I accept your offer
12 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1909: Russia and Turkey, you guys wanna play or what?
