29 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Should we draw if no Russia?
29 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Sorry guys. I was working this afternoon and forgot
31 May 20 UTC Spring, 1907: on the above *working = wanking
31 May 20 UTC Spring, 1907: and *forgot = remembered
31 May 20 UTC Spring, 1907: Accurate
01 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: What do you call those books that you the reader gets to choose from a series of options and that becomes the story?
01 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: Choose your own adventure?
01 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: Gamebooks. I didn't know there are still of those out there. I am a fan of Lone Wolf Series.
01 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: Nice, yes was just thinking how you would go about writing one. Wondering what the process would be.
01 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: its an ardous schematic fuck-around according to this guy http://www.ashtonsaylor.com/2012/04/h-how-to-write-gamebook.html I was thinking about putting a game book inside a novel. Blow up reality.
01 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: I also want to remake the music video to coolio's gangsters paradise but record it as wankers paradise, set during lockdown
01 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: Being an author myself, I had tried it once. It is a difficult thing especially if you go about it without a computer. I may try it again. Thanks for the link, he's a Fighting Fantasy author, I see. I had played some of these too.
01 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: 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.
01 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: Apologies, like above I remembered and wanked, fully my fault for the delayed wank
01 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: New turkey here
02 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: Welcome Turkey. Guys, may I recommend this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m4_AAmLpwR8 its not literature its investment advice. But if you watch enough of this if you get through more than two thirds of this it becomes poetry. Not poetry in the sense that it lets you glimpse the ineffable, but poetry in the sense that you can a sort of rhythm to all the disruption that fails to break the hold of tradition. ARKK is the On The Road, the Bukowski, of futurology. Their CEO Cathie Woods even gives the vulgar art of money making a style that makes it seem respectable. The video is a year old but is still valid, very much so.
02 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: *excuse the grammar, im deep in wine
06 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 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.
06 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: So England is gone (he may by under the wine's effect). Shall we draw?
06 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: I was under the impression everyone was playing to draw
06 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: Sorry for the delay, I'm bacl.
09 Jun 20 UTC Spring, 1909: We are building our love for each other. In French Ukraine. Join us.
09 Jun 20 UTC Spring, 1909: We also have an outpost in French Bohemia led by Mr Francois Mercury
09 Jun 20 UTC Spring, 1909: Do you do the fandango?
09 Jun 20 UTC Spring, 1909: Thunder bolt and lightning, very very frightening.
09 Jun 20 UTC Spring, 1909: Galileo Galileo
Galileo Galileo
Galileo Figaro
Magnifico-o-o-o-o.
10 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1909: I see a little silhouette of a man in Ukr he's dead now
10 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1909: Bruce Miller
11 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1909: 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.
12 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1909: The game is void boys (GF) you should draw. That last turn was without a player.
12 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1909: I'd be happy to go again but in an anonymous game. I felt I was slightly disadvantaged in this one by being known.
12 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1909: When I say slightly I mean highly.
12 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1909: What horrors have you committed in real life to provoke such strong feelings in an online strategy game?
12 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1909: I don't know why you are crying so much England, your futile attempt to hold onto St. Pete would have failed even if Russia had put in orders.
12 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1909: Sorry about that! I'm not really sure what's going on. It said I was blocked and banned from rejoining and now I appear to have rejoined.
13 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1909: Draw is the right response here - not writing this as diplomacy
13 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1909: I shouldnt have to explain it
13 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1909: F not true there was one move that would hold it.
15 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: And that was for me, game over.
I bid all of you a fond farewell.
15 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: Good game Italy. Nice playing with you!
18 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1911: Alright, 48 hours until the end of the game!
19 Jun 20 UTC Good game Russia!

Germany, Turkey, you guys wanna call this one now?
19 Jun 20 UTC Yup
19 Jun 20 UTC Thanks for the game. Sorry for all the missed deadlines. Good luck to the remaining three. Don't call it a draw; the weather's lovely
19 Jun 20 UTC Good game!
19 Jun 20 UTC Thanks for the game everyone, we've proven that diplomacy works, as long as half the nations are brutally repressed by the other half.
19 Jun 20 UTC And betrayed and stabbed by as many neighbours as possible!
23 Jun 20 UTC Everyone lost. But at least the real losers tried to win. G and F you both could have soloed. Grow a big solo testicle and lets play again.
25 Jun 20 UTC The real world impeded on this game. I’m busier now in my academic and social life, so I was happy to end things when I did. Maybe I’ll get the itch for more Diplomacy in a few months.
07 Jul 20 UTC Thats loser talk
