24 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1: Guess what? There was a guy who got two confirmed bow-and-arrow kills in World War II!
24 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1: Secret alliance against Egypt, anyone?
24 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1: Also, btw, check in more than once per day do that we can actually diplom.
Hey look, I just made a new verb!
24 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1: Greetings! If he didn't already tell you, I am Temish's brother, and it's an honor to play the game with you fine gentlemen.
26 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 2: Warning to all, the fleet on Cyprus has gone berserk and cannot be trusted, despite any possible alliances that may have been made.
26 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 2: ...That's my fleet.
26 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 2: I know.
26 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 2: Then why are you blithering on about my fleet going berserk? It's my fleet. It's doing exactly what I tell it to. And it's not going to break any alliances.
26 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 2: You seem very eager to deny my claims, Pharaoh. Perhaps you should not say what you can not control.
26 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 2: You venomous Satrap. I had known that you were of weak mind and untrustworthy, but this extent of mindless ramblings is beyond what I thought even you were foolish enough to engage in.
26 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 2: But truly, I am a liar.
26 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 2: Behold! The inscrutable wisdom of the philosophers of Rome bring but one question: If a truthful man declares himself a liar, does his statement ring the sound of truth or falsehood?
26 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 2: PARADOX
26 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2: So, being new to this game I must ask a dumb question, could I support move the unit in Sinai using the Greek unit in the Egyptian Sea to support me?
26 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2: I don't think Sinai is adjacent to the Egyptian Sea. GoP is connected to lots of places by way of the Nile River Delta.... the answer you want is probably on this site: http://www.variantbank.org/results/rules/a/ancient_med.htm
26 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2: Ah, yet Lairs do not lie all the time, only when it suits their interests.
26 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2: Ah! The treacherous Greek dares to show his face. Yet hear, one and all, how like weasels his lying words run around, unable to stop the might of ... actual armies. O craven Hegemon of Athens, did not you promise to me in solemn words, vowed high to your gods, that you "desired only the destruction of Persia"? Why then do your craven armies crawl westward towards Dalmatia and Sarmatia and other peaceable Roman lands?
26 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2: Is the one who accuses another as a liar truly a true man? I think not. For you said you were interested in the wealth of Carthage only, and desired peace with me. Then you threaten me. You gave me no option but to make that solemn oath, and it was made in haste and fear, for you threatened me with your seemingly great army. I see now I was foolish to think your boys with sharp sticks could pose threat to Athens. My men of valor move to take what you said was to be mine, then on to crush you, your city of sin and to all your ill-gotten lands. Why do you move to Illyria toward me and mine, O fool of Philosophers?
To all who would hear: This drunken tyrant should not be trusted. He attempted to make me a vassal of Roma, and forced me to turn against my allies. He is a snake in Man's clothing and should be treated as such.
26 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2: These are tall words, O treacherous Greek, for one so short on courage. Ready your orders, unless you desire more time to ponder anew your own ineptitude. Hurry! The eyes of all await your destruction
26 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2: O the times! O the mores! How vile an age foisted upon us that every nation must endure such a tyranny as this tedium? Caesar's forces surely grow tired of waiting, but nevertheless the Emperor is as judicious in his manners as he is invincible in battle.
26 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2: I was told that patience was a virtue your pompous philosophers advocated.
Oh, and look, your slaves in armor have retreated. I assume one as you, who would insult so another man's courage, did not tell them to do so. Perhaps the disobeyed you? My men would never abandon there position so. Mayhap you should look for men who would join your army of their own accord, instead of forcing them into joining.
Ah, but as I recall, you execute those who disobey, so you did tell them to retreat. How great the irony that you would be saying I am inept. And you are right, I, the Emperor, am invincible in battle and judicious in manner. Many thanks for the praise.
27 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2: Along with that, I would insist you cease your incessant blithering. As you are rash and ignorant, you would not understand that some men desire to think before they act, O foolish Roman.
27 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2: But truly, it has gone berserk. You can't trust it.
27 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2: You see to what level of treachery these Greeks have fallen. They invade fair Dalmatia, and lo there was a great sound as if many were screaming, and then suddenly fell silent. O Dalmatia!
27 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2: There were none left to scream when your cowardly men took leave of that place. You shall see a great mass, as of the heavens, and you will then see that it is no moon, but the might of my men. they already have a great station set up in a space in Dalmatia, that you will soon know destruction, O Roman dog.
27 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2: Everyone, team up to destroy Jonah's berserk force!
27 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2: Speak not of dogs! The noble hounds of Roma will not even stoop to sniff the butts of the thousands of Greeks we have already impressed to slavery. Such is the disgusting condition of your people. It is difficult to believe that the noble people of the Nile were brought so low that they had to ally themselves with such a treacherous people. O the times!

A notable Roman Censor named Cato the Elder has begun teaching in our forums of the moral depravity and terrifying force of the nation across the sea. He once dropped a Carthaginian fig on the ground, then when someone ate it, he reminded them that it was grown only three days away, and an army could arrive to our fair land just as quickly. After great speeches, the Roman people look across the sea, waiting only for a hint of aggression from this perverse people. Should such an act of terror occur, the entire Roman people will with one accord declaim loudly along the length of the Appian way: Carthago Delenda Est!
27 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2: (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carthago_delenda_est)
28 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 3: So you admit that you have enslaved Greeks! for this you shall pay. Be glad came to an arrangement to remove forces from the north, or you would have my men in you city by the next year!
28 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 3: ....Carthago Delenda Est!
28 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 3: As great a cry as it is, I have only hear the ignorant and foolish use it. As I said before, cease your blithering.
29 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 4: Someone needs call Daniel and tell him to do his turn.
29 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 4: The Persians wait for no one.
29 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 4: Chill
30 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 5: THIS IS NOT MY DAY.
31 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 6: You may have destroyed the Persian empire, but the Persians live on.
They live in your lands...
Thousands of them...
More than you could ever imagine.
You can hurt us.
You can lame us.
You can slay us by the thousands.
But as long as Temish lives, he will not be safe.
Watch your back, lord of Greece.
You just might find a knife in it.
01 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 7: So new game?
01 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 7: So... do you guys have two games running at the same time, usually? I wanted to try an "anonymous" one, with only us five invited, where we had to conduct all diplomacy over the global chat. Why? Because I didn't know that was possible, and I want to see how it works out. Is anyone interested in that game type?
01 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 7: Let's do it.
Although diplomacy only really works in a world without Temish.
Sorry, but it's true.
01 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 7: Roma hears your request, O Satrap's ghost, and in that game... it will happen soon enough... :)
01 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 7: *this game
