20 Aug 13 UTC Spring, 1999: Why am I Peru, anyways? Isn't Peru further south, and doesn't encompass half of South America?
20 Aug 13 UTC Spring, 1999: The designer of the map made Peru invade Colombia before the Fall of the American Empire so there was a 10th nation big and powerful enough to have a place in the war. Lima is actually Peru; the another SCs are Colombian.
20 Aug 13 UTC Spring, 1999: Ah. That makes sense.
I guess.

...So. Are there guides anywhere for this map? And if not, are you guys as inexperienced with FotAE IV as I am?
20 Aug 13 UTC Spring, 1999: This is my first time playing this map. I am just interested to see what happens.
20 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1999: Me, too. First to have my orders in! Whoo!
20 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1999: I have played as NY, CA and now cuba, so far it hasnt gone to great in the other games but it is fun
21 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1999: Speaking of New York, what do you think the chance is that he will actually be playing?
21 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1999: Not really.
21 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1999: If he doesn't submit a turn this phase he's automatically booted, right?
21 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1999: I think so.
21 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1999: So we don't need to wait for him this phase?
21 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1999: Not anymore
21 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1999: Yes!

Now we just have to wait for Cuba, California, and Brittish Colombia. (Probably time zone issues, but still.)
21 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1999: Be patient, my young padawan, this game requires time.
Unless you play those filthy live games.
21 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1999: what makes the filthy?
22 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1999: I'm just kidding.
22 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1999: Well, I'm kinda excited. This is my third Diplomacy game, with the first ending before the first year's close and the second ending midgame when a couple players quit. (I was Italy, trying to invade Austria while turning Turkey and Russia against each other so I could stab one of them when I finished off Austria, only to discover that Turkey was turning Austria and I against each other and helping Austria.)
There's also a brief game I played when I took over an Austria that had apparently been absent, and reduced to half of its original size. My last, aka only, two supply centers were taken within the year. I don't count that, mainly because it was lost before I wasted my time there.
22 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1999: Hi everyone. The new New York here. Good luck all.
22 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1999: Hi everyone. The new New York here. Good luck all.
22 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1999: good luck to you, too. i'm sure you could use it
