Classic, Draw-Size Scoring
1 excused missed turn
Game drawn
20 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1904: Solid. You?
20 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1904: Breaking down on the inside, but pretending like I know what I'm doing
20 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1904: Aww... Now I want to help France, especially since it is figurative AND literal
26 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: England, parting is such sweet sorrow. We shall miss thee.
29 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1905: Maybe if we run it back you can try an alliance with them
29 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1905: Pardon?
29 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1905: Yeah, I'd like some clarification here as well...
29 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1905: Just commenting on the team Italy has found himself on two games in a row now.
30 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1905: Aristocratic grumbling? Pick your head up buckaroo.
05 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: 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.
05 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Sorry all, promise to get it in tonight! Had family come in to town and missed deadline unfortunately.
05 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: No worries! Family should always come first.

Let me know if you would like to pause so you can give them 100% while they are there!
05 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Absolutely, no drama. And I agree, we can pause if it helps. I'm in no rush here
05 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: My pause vote is in if we opt to do it. No worries, no rush.
05 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: I've voted to pause. It's good timing too as I have family about to come visit me as well.
05 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: I do not need it (thank you all for offers) but if someone else in the game requires it I am happy to do so
05 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: That or just a draw all around?
05 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Let’s wait for Russia to stab Germany before we draw.
05 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: At that point will everyone have stabbed everyone?
05 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Except for the stab that has always made the most sense (Turkey on Italy)
05 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Only a Sith deals in absolutes.
05 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: ...isn't that an absolute?
05 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Italy is a Sith confirmed
05 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Darth Ciaosicus
05 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Based on what he's done with Turkey if I had to pick a fantasy reference I'd say Italy is closer to Wormtongue
06 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: So he is Grins and I get to be the Lord of Horses?

I bet I could rock the "Covered with cobwebs" look.
06 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: I suppose so, though that means you switch sides and swing the decisive final battle to the good guys, too.
06 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Thing is, I joined late, which is sad, and then I was stabbed, which is extra sad, but I also stabbed that turn, so I can't be too upset.

All in all though, I'm only extant due to Italy, and no one helped me stay alive when I implored them for help.

What sort of Gandalf are we looking for to shake the cobwebs away?
06 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: I’m a Jedi. Or, if this is LOTR, I’m part of the Fellowship striving to prevent Middle Earth from falling into shadow.
06 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Am I a generic orc #4?
06 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Lol, you determine your own role. I’m only speaking for myself.
06 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Do we still need a short pause? Just so we have a chance to quickly reread LOTR
07 Dec 20 UTC Spring, 1906: Wow! What a turn!
09 Dec 20 UTC Spring, 1906: Is there a reason why everyone has a puse vote cast?
09 Dec 20 UTC Spring, 1906: There was a possible request for a pause, but I guess whoever asked doesn't need it.
09 Dec 20 UTC Spring, 1906: Germany was distracted, so I offered up the choice, as my family was also coming into town. Then we just didn't complete the vote.
09 Dec 20 UTC Spring, 1906: Have your family been and gone, or would you like a little time off?
09 Dec 20 UTC Spring, 1906: They have come and are still here. I'm good, thank you for asking :)
14 Dec 20 UTC Spring, 1907: Is it getting to draw time yet? Asking for a friend...
14 Dec 20 UTC Spring, 1907: Ha ha ha! :)
14 Dec 20 UTC Spring, 1907: I have a feeling that is between you and Italy.
20 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: Congrats on achieving the world’s most foreseeable stalemate line.
20 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: My vote remains up on the assumption that you want to keep in France
20 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: That's not very nice.
20 Dec 20 UTC Not very nice would be making us sit through 4 rounds of doomed attacks before the mods can come in a draw the game for us if you don’t want to
20 Dec 20 UTC Given how this all started, a draw works for me
21 Dec 20 UTC Good game all!
21 Dec 20 UTC GG! Have a great rest of 2020…
21 Dec 20 UTC gg guys.
21 Dec 20 UTC Good game!
