21 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1901: Good luck everyone and have fun :D
21 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1901: EXTRA EXTRA! A shadow hangs over Europe! War looms! Orders are due by 4:53 AM. I believe once you click "ready" your orders are locked in so make you've done all your negotiations before that. Once everyone has selected "ready" the game will resolve the moves. Good luck!
21 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1901: What does it mean if there is a little circle next to a countries name in the tab above?
21 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1901: Ah, nevermind, it means they are logged in.
21 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1901: Also, you can preview your moves by clicking the small check mark and arrow directly below the map.
22 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1901: Correction, orders are due by 6:53 AM. My device had the wrong time earlier.
22 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: BLACK SEA -- Turkish and Russian warships exchanged fire in the early hours of Saturday morning. Senior officials in both countries refused to comment on if this is the beginning of all out war.

GALICIA -- Meanwhile, Russian ground forces marched into Galicia, signaling a possible annexation of the region. Austria has yet to respond. German troops were also spotted heading south to the Austrian border. Experts say this could be the beginning of a German-Russian alliance that could lead to increased hostilities in the region.

UNDATED -- Elsehere across the continent, troops and supplies have been reported as on the move. Experts speculate the recent movements are largely in response to fears of expanded militarily action in the east.
22 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: An announcement sent out to all foreign powers by the Grand Sultan Abdul-Hamid II - We Ottomans fear none. There are no problems in our empire that can't be handled with a few good Turks. We will drive our enemies from our lands as we have done before.
23 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: I did like the news story that Ethan made, is that normal for a GM?
23 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1902: I did like the news story that Ethan made, is that normal for a GM?
23 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1902: world news roundoup will be forthcoming
23 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1902: RUMANIA -- Hostilities escalated in East-Central Europe in recent weeks culminating in a series of clashes involving Turkish, Austrian, and Russion forces in the region. Sources close to Italian and Russian leaders claim foul-play on Austria's part, however a high-ranking official with the Austrian government says differently. "I genuinely felt they [Russia & Italy] were about to turn on me," the Officail said. Further to the east in the Black Sea, Russain and Turkish warships continued a series of engagements.

GREECE -- Meanwhile, in Greece both Austrian and Italian forces clashed for control of the region. It is unclear who currently occupies the area, however the hostilities will likely lead to further conflicts in the Ionian and Adractic Seas.

BELGIUM -- Tensions are up in Northern Europe as French and German forces clashed near Belgium. German Officals claim that French Troops violated a non-aggression agreement between the two nations. France on Saturday rejected the claim on the grounds that Belgium is a neutral terroritory, not under German control, and therefore not subject to the agreement which expires this year. Meanwhile English troops made landfall in Holland, effectively occupying the region. No word yet on whether the English forces will join future hostilities between France and Germany, if they occur.

NORTH OCEANS -- An English navel buildup in the north seas have German and Russian neighbors on edge. Fleets are set to launch from London and Norway later this season.

MEDITERRANEAN SEA -- A Turkish fleet is set to launch from Constaninople later this season, setting Italian forces in the area on high-alert. Experts speculate that the scheduled fleet launch will be in coordination with Austrian efforts in those waters. In the Western Mediterranean, a French Fleet, and its flagship the FS ESCARGOT IS NOT GROSS, is set to launch later this year. Not even French Officals seem to know what the heck they're going to do with it.
23 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1902: I did like the news story that Ethan made, is that normal for a GM?
23 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1902: Ok, that was weird.
24 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1902: Telegraph sent out to leaders of other nations - The Ottomans have heard many rumors being circulated about the Turks being war like. We simply are liberating our people from those that crusade against our people. We protect our fellow Ottomans from the other powers in our local regions!
24 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1902: England is pretty sure that the Pope hasn't called for a 5th crusade, not that I'm a papist and would follow him or anything.
24 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: The pope.... Italy... HEY GREAT IDEA!
24 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Actually the pope is technically in the Vatican/Papal States. He isn't in your jurisdiction.
24 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: (Out of Character) As I traveled to different parts of the Middle East many years ago several middle easterners I talked with oftentimes considered any attack from Europe to be a sort of crusade against them. This also held true for the wars that started during Bush years as another holy war (obviously the US is not Europe but oftentimes considered to be of similar mentality). So it was more a reference to Napoleon attacking them in the not too super distant past.
25 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Also, Britain's part in the Reformation was pretty funny. This is a satirical video, but it's actually pretty accurate.
