06 Aug 19 UTC Spring, 1907: Well, iambic pentameter does not
require a rhyming scheme or other plot.
So don't worry, maybe next time Haiku?
07 Aug 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Good friend to East will you take back Moskva?
If not the Baltic needs help to Prussia.
07 Aug 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Also, make sure Holland supports hold Kiel.
07 Aug 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: My plans shall not reveal in case the enemy doth divine and plans steal
But yes all shall be well that I can tell
07 Aug 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Oh my worthy foes, I have a surprise
Thou will wonder at my...insanity
08 Aug 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Your moves are interesting, I must say.
08 Aug 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Ah, my pink friend, we'll always have Berlin.
Not fretting here, Austria will still win.
08 Aug 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: That of, I'm sure, though I still hope to draw.
08 Aug 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: At this point, I think its fifty fifty.
08 Aug 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: It's not the time to wane, submit orders
and lets get this game over with puhlease
08 Aug 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Friends which army do I destroy to help
08 Aug 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: recommend Holland, what I say be right,
For Livonia be key to mount a fight.
09 Aug 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: I must admit that that is rather right,
Ruhr can support my hold in Kiel from here.
09 Aug 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: What shall I build, and where I must ask?
For no mortal man should take on such an task.
09 Aug 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: If it were to me, I think Brest I'd pick.
Armies we don't need, but fleets we need quick.
10 Aug 19 UTC Spring, 1908: It is quiet, evil scheming afoot.
10 Aug 19 UTC Spring, 1908: Well you are the only one who can scheme on their own
10 Aug 19 UTC Spring, 1908: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.
10 Aug 19 UTC Spring, 1908: Not with a bang, but a whimper I see,
Avast ye blubbers, heave to and fight me.
10 Aug 19 UTC Spring, 1908: Not us, but Italy I bet it is.
10 Aug 19 UTC Spring, 1908: Moderator give me control. I want back IN!
10 Aug 19 UTC Spring, 1908: Otto, it'S good to hear your voice. How's hell?
10 Aug 19 UTC Spring, 1908: you might be able to take over Green
10 Aug 19 UTC Spring, 1908: Choas is abundant in the green state.
11 Aug 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: A race to finish, A race to Tunis.
11 Aug 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: Moscow falls this turn, what's still left to burn?
11 Aug 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: Moscow may fall! Berlin you will not get!
11 Aug 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: And Petersburg we'll hold please, don't forget.
11 Aug 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: Your only hope to take it now is France.
And he won't fail in Medit'rranean.
Dear Russia, please make sure St. Petes will stay,
Where sh'is, so we can keep and hold this play.
11 Aug 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: St Petes does stay, they will not win today
11 Aug 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: Let's see how the worm turns in the south seas.
11 Aug 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: Munich may fall, if we move Burgundy.
12 Aug 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: To hold Tunis we need to have units,
In Northern Africa (may'b' A or F)
And too, in West Mediterranean
I'll keep around in M-A-O to help,
You keep Western Mediterranean.

This turn, I recommend that you support,
That way, Wetern Mediterranean
Will fall to us for sure upon next phase.
Then you can convoy in all peace with Spain.
12 Aug 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: I do not think that moving up is wise.
12 Aug 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: But if we can in later times, then so.
12 Aug 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: Looks like a draw, but a three way sounds good.
12 Aug 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: It's a trap
12 Aug 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: I attack Liv, Britain attacks Saint Pete's.
Then in the fall, North sails into Holland.
Comrade, there is no trap, but there is...death.
12 Aug 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: Russia, old friend, though I've betrayed you then,
Fear not for now. I always knew that when,
The time came to decide with or without,
You are to be my closest friend no bout.
12 Aug 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: France, here's the plan, we hold it out 'till end!
What say my friends? I say we shan't be tend!
12 Aug 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: Rend*
12 Aug 19 UTC I will convoy Spain t'North Afrique faire France,
You hold and steady stand 'gainst tide of Red.
12 Aug 19 UTC My deepest gratitude is yours England
12 Aug 19 UTC Well now fair Brit, I know you cannot say
Feel free to tap Saint Petes, twon't block your way.
13 Aug 19 UTC It was crucial for Gas to move to Spain,
Aargh, to draw one short of win is a pain.
13 Aug 19 UTC Well played gents, a tip of the hat to you
13 Aug 19 UTC Ah ha, as I have said in th'very start!
The victory lies only with the smart.
The mighty three against a scarced one,
A change to the initial plan has won,
Us all in the arrangement held at top
Of game, in this, I say to all, good job!
13 Aug 19 UTC How do you all feel for another round?
14 Aug 19 UTC I am down for some more meter and rhyme
or perhaps free form, a haiku or two
14 Aug 19 UTC Haiku you say? I'll take you up on that!
The game will soon be up for you to join.
