01 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 1901: This is scary and overwhelming.
01 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 1901: In other words: I AM WEAK. You will beat me easily.
02 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 1901: Greetings everyone. France wishes to assure all that we are a peaceful people and are more than willing to deal with all nations fairly. We seek to bring about a swift end to this unfortunate conflict by bringing the whole of Europe under French dominion. For only once the Napoleonic Code is restored can Europe achieve its true destiny of peace and prosperity. We promise a new era of Liberté, égalité, fraternité to all who join under our banners.

In all seriousness now, good luck everyone and may the best man (or woman) win.
02 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 1901: What? Austria-Hungary? How do I ALWAYS get Austria-Hungary?!
02 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 1901: Isn't that what it says in that book? The power of positive thinking?
And sorry France, but you've never succeeded in reality, nor will you bring all of Europe under the banner of fatty food and rude service staff now.
02 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 1901: Oh and for those of you (i.e. most) that don't know me, I'm Nataly, Patrick's Russian-Israeli friend from the 51st state. I will make peace with any nation willing to feed me (I accept both sweets and breakfast food).
02 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 1901: Except your fate in life! You are doomed to always be Austria-Hungary. I would also like to point out to Mr. France that if your ancestors the Franks had not cruelly invaded the Moors then we would have unified Europe long before Napoleon... and taught you to brew coffee correctly.
02 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 1901: This coming from a nation known for drinking coffee without filtering it first.
03 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 1901: You waste half the flavor when you filter it! More importantly, you loose so much of that precious caffeine! I would also advise you that my home-made Baklava is to die for. Have Austria-Hungary tell you about my tendency to feed random people brownies...

03 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 1901: Tendency to feed random people brownies? I'm liking Turkey more and more.
03 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 1901: Tendency to feed random people brownies? I'm liking Turkey more and more.
04 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 1901: Here in the recently unified Kingdom of Italy (and by recent, we mean about 30 years ago), we are a bit mad that we missed out on the new imperialism and the recent Berlin conference. Is there a way that Germany can gift us Deutsche Ostafrika?
04 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 1901: I suppose that I will introduce myself as well for those who do not know me. I am Justin Peachey and a former graduate student at Clemson. I now live in NC working at Davidson College. Normally when I play diplomacy online, I create an entire persona and stay in character all game. However, given that this is my first year in academia, I have far less time. All of you will have to live with messages from a Monsieur Robespierre, of the lesser Robespierres. I look forward to playing, even if I have less time to devote to this than I would like.
04 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 1901: Interesting choice in persona, Justin. You couldn't pick a slightly nicer French revolutionary?
04 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 1901: Shermany would like to express her regret to Europe for her silence in the last few days. She was incredibly busy, but is now fully engaged, and working on replies as we speak. Please accept her sincere apologies.
04 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 1901: [M. Robespierre climbs upon a soapbox and cues the band behind him to start playing the Marseillaise.] Nice?! NICE?! Does France need someone who is nice? No, I say. Was Jeanne d'Arc nice when she rallied France to evict the English? Was Napoleon nice when he imposed order on the chaos of Europe? Did de Gaulle meekly submit or ask the Nazis to leave? No. In this time of chaos France needs a strong hand to guide her. She desires -- nay, demands -- a committee on public safety to provide for population. She commands all loyal French men to join the revolution and to bring peace and order to the four corners of the world. Let all fear our zeal for Liberty, Equality and Fraternity for all mankind (under the French banners, of course).
[M. Robespierre steps down to cheers of patriotic fervor from all attending French.]
04 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 1901: I'm not convinced the city of Nice was inspired by the speech.
04 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 1901: Do you hear the people sing, singing the song of angry men? It is the music of a people who will not be bounced again...
04 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 1901: At least bouncing of the third kind.
