02 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 1901: Morning all, here's to a peaceful and dull game.
02 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 1901: (I'll apologise in advance for any rookie mistakes, I feel I'm about to make one)...I will however declare my hand early, bow to the mono ideological power of the Austrian Forces...we may be a small backward nation but we have big ambition to convert northern Europe into our righteous ways...Hell hath no wrath akin to an Austrian scorned
03 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 1901: Has there been any sign of Germany, does he know the game has begun?
03 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 1901: Has there been any sign of Germany, does he know the game has begun?
03 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 1901: Is this a good time for everyone to turn on the Kaiser?
03 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 1901: I've PMed him elsewhere, so he should know we're rolling.
03 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 1901: No doubt he is in an underground bunker gathering intel.
03 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 1901: Has there been any sign of Germany, does he know the game has begun?
03 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 1901: No sign from me, I believe his ambassador has claimed diplomatic asylum in the dark depths of some foreign lands.
03 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 1901: Sorry, real life shit... on it...
03 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: Sorry about the repeated messages, that was my phone rather than me.
05 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: Can anyone give England a prod?
05 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: I have done.
05 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: Sorry..!
05 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 1902: SomersetGestalt has said (in another place) that he is indisposed till Sunday at the latest, and sends his apologies. This will be another long negotiation phase.
07 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 1902: And can someone suggest that England enters some orders?
08 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: Oh balls, someone has just read the long-form rule book and realised how build orders work in reality - ho-hum...
09 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: Hold on to your hats...
09 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: Damnit, missed it by a few seconds.
18 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: Goodbye cruel world...
18 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 1905: Farewell Austria - the world isn't cruel, just those who run it.
20 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 1905: Auf Wiedersehen, Germany.
20 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 1905: Literally driven into the sea. Au revoir et Bon nuit.
20 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: Betrayed, betrayed.... Ok, betrayed by my own failure to understand the rules, but at least I wasn't last!
23 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: I'll vacate Tyrolia for Munich to occupy. If you could support Tyrolia into Vienna please.
23 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: Bollocks. Pretend you didn't see that, eh?
23 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: Trouble is, I am so paranoid about this game I half expect it to be a double or even triple bluff.
23 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: You think Russia merely goes to the level of a triple bluff? Russia is a riddle, encased in a mystery, inside an enigma, wrapped around a large gold brick.
25 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: ...ah not looked back for a while, nice to see turkey's uprising...not that I hold a grudge, scumrade. ;0) xxx
27 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 1907: England have fallen into civil disorder. Farewell England.
28 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1907: I tell a lie, England's back. Hello England.
28 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1907: And gone again. Au revoir England, sorry for stabbing you in the back at the most inopportune moment.
28 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1907: Not a problem, France! I predicted that you'd win a long while back and I'd rather be right than win. Best of luck..!
28 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1907: Merci!
30 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 1909: The centre of Europe is now little but a mass of red and yellow arrows with lines through them.
31 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 1910: I hear the strains of La Marseillaise in the air...
31 Oct 12 UTC Well done France, and well done Russia for holding out with your home supply centres under prolonged attack.
31 Oct 12 UTC Well done France.

And Turkey. I rather feel I deserved that after stabbing Austria.
31 Oct 12 UTC I did try to tell Austria to keep you out of Rumania and Galicia. But would he listen?
31 Oct 12 UTC Don't feel bad for Austria, they broke an alliance to take Bulgaria from me with Russia's help in 1902. I swore I'd get my vengeance on both nations.
31 Oct 12 UTC In retrospect, I shouldn't have been so hell bent on attempting to take out Russia in Scandinavia, had I concentrated on Warsaw then marched on central Europe, I may have done better (and been better able to help Italy against France) but hindsight is a wonderful thing.
31 Oct 12 UTC It's amazing how little decisions echo all the way through to the end game. Great fun, I hope everyone enjoys living under the semi-benign French dictatorship.
31 Oct 12 UTC I'm going to sulk over my spaghetti.
