09 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 1: Howdy all! My first time doing public messaging only and playing on this map.
As far as the Game goes I ask that the 5 seas bordering my current holdings stay free of fleets. (Adriatic, Ionian, Ausonian, Tyrrhenean, Ligurian) Thanks and good luck!
12 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1: I wont enter Your seas, if you dont move further east
13 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1: It appeals to me, but you'll have to back it up with non-navel builds. One max in Thapsus.
13 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1: *naval
13 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1: but no navel builds either please.
13 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1: In that case You wont enter that seas to!
13 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1: I don't know if that is quite a fair deal. You stick to your home seas and I'll stick to mine, and when possible we try to stay our of them all together. I wouldn't deprive you of a garrison and I expect you wouldn't do the same to me either.
15 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 2: Hi all, new Persia here!
15 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 2: Welcome!
16 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 2: Look upon my 4 supply centres, ye mighty, and despair.
17 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 2: Most Excellent Great King of Persia. Ten thousand ships and ten thousand chariots gather before the the holy city of Jerusalem. Yet, my forces hold. My high priest had a vision atop Mount Sinai: divine rule across the known world, glorious wealth and prosperity bestowed upon the blessed Persian and Egyptian empires, and woe and ruin upon the feeble empires to the West. We two alone exercise divine rule. The foolish republics and kingdoms to the west are ruled by mere mortal men, such is their arrogance and insolence. Our proud and ancient civilisations can stand as partners the entire breadth of the Mediterranean see; Egypt in the South, Persia in the North. Let our empires join in alliance, and I will remove my forces from Mount Sinai. Together we can sweep across the Mediterranean!
17 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 2: I knew you weren't to be trusted Carthage...
17 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 2: Well, I didnt like your move for Beleares...
17 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 2: My dearest Pharao, what nice to hear of you! I humble accept your alliance and hope that we can bring civilization to the barbaric Westerns.
17 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 2: That was after you supported yourself into the Punic Sea. The move to Ligurian was purely defensive. I said I would not deny you a garrison, and yet you didn't want me to have one, and didn't trust me to not move to the Punic Sea. ...Not a way to gain trust, and now we have an eastern alliance to fight... we have a most interesting game to play now.
19 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 3: New Greece here. Open to alliances which are in our mutual interest :)
19 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 3: Dear Pharao, if you want, you can send your fleet into the Egyptian Sea. I will make way for you.
19 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 3: Your wisdom pre-empts my request, Great King
19 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 3: Your wisdom pre-empts my request, Great King
20 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 3: Well Greece, should we make peace and worry about the corners of the board?
21 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 3: Yup Rome, you've got a friend in me!
23 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 3: Rome, let me know if you want any particular supports/moves... it seems we have common interests and can pull this out together
23 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 3: Sounds good, the unit in Sarmatia is there to help you.
23 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 4: Thank you .. that's much appreciated :)
24 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 4: Greece, could you press ready?
30 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 6: Great King, if you could harry (but not dislodge) the Greek army in the Egyptian Sea, that'd save Alexandria from occupation.
30 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 6: I will try my utmost best, o Royal Pharao.
01 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 6: Pharaoh be warned, you are about to be stabbed.
01 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 6: The Great King of Persia and the Divine Pharaoh of Egypt stand in heavenly brotherhood, Republican. Persia appreciates the efforts of the Egyptian Chariotry to hold back Roman aggression in Africa.
02 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 6: O Great and Wise Pharaoh, let ye not be scared by the seductive Romans. They are feeling threatened by our holy alliance and trying to get into our minds to set us up against each other. Don't let ye be fooled and stand strong, together we will bring civilization to the West!
03 Aug 17 UTC Spring, 7: Great King, the Alexandrian fleet stands ready to support the Persian fleet in the Gulf of Pelusium into the Egyptian Sea. The sea shall swallow them whole.
04 Aug 17 UTC Spring, 7: Your wisdom is beyond measurement. I will take the opportunity you're offering me.
04 Aug 17 UTC Spring, 7: My deepest of apologies Greece. I had intended to end this game this next turn with you alive and well. Indeed it was within my grasp but I made an error far to the west by not protecting Saguntum. I believe I can still achieve victory while keeping your people free from the Persian Hordes, but it will not end this year.
04 Aug 17 UTC Support in the Libyan Sea from Crete would be appreciated as well and will help in keeping Crete from the Persian Navy.
06 Aug 17 UTC Congratulations Rome!
06 Aug 17 UTC Ave TiconderogaHB!
06 Aug 17 UTC Thanks Guys, shouldn't it wait until after retreats though? That's what I would do in Face to face. But I won't complain much! Hope the WWI game gets off the ground Arch-Duke, I'll watch it for sure and would be willing to play if you need more players.
06 Aug 17 UTC Cheers. I reckon we will need more players. Currently only have 3 or 4. Another reason I'm in favour of just doing it on the classic 7-man map rather than one of the bigger variants.

As for the retreats thing, I'm pretty sure it's automatic; webDip changes the game state to finished once a player reaches 18.
