Game drawn
29 May 14 UTC Spring, 2007: [Pacific-Russia]:To my European ally it might be as well for you to move a unit into the Med it would secure your southern flank. My priority is to secure the removal of the Barents Sea fleet by negotiation with the help of Her Highness acting as go between or by force if this is not achievable.
29 May 14 UTC Spring, 2007: [Pacific-Russia]:Near east you may like to assist your European ally with support to the Med as a sign of good faith and commitment to the Asian /European Alliance.
29 May 14 UTC Spring, 2007: [Pacific-Russia]:India my good friend you are not forgotten and will receive any support that is possible should the need arise.
29 May 14 UTC Spring, 2007: [Frozen-Antarctica]:Brazil: If you move out Mendoza I support you to recover Peru. As you see I can´t attack you in my actual position, so you don´t have reason to attack me. I just only want to hold Chile and Santa Cruz. Do you agree?
02 Jun 14 UTC Spring, 2007: [China]:Her Divine Eminence has taken note of the brewing conflict between Antarctica and Brazil with Canada. Her Highness' master strategist's have suggested that the imperial fleet in the Central Pacific could support the Brazilian fleet in Central America against the Northeast Pacific while the North Pacific fleet tries to take a port again. If Canadian diplomats would speak up, then none of this may be necessary. Her Highness would also appreciate Russia's opinion on the matter

That being said, Her Majestic Grace still considers South Africa to be the greatest threat to world security, but cannot see how to best get her forces to the far side of the world. China will do anything possible to support their close friend and ally India in these troubled times though.
02 Jun 14 UTC Spring, 2007: [India]:The Republic of India is grateful for the supportive words of its allies. If our fleet in the West Pacific can be of any use, let us know. Meanwhile we shall do our best to combat the aggressive actions of the South African tyrant and prevent any of his troops from reaching Asian soil.
03 Jun 14 UTC Spring, 2007: [Pacific-Russia]:My defence committee agree with her Majesty South Africa is the biggest threat to Global peace and is unlikely with its present dictator to agree to a permanent settlement. My fleet in Nwp will support your North Pacific fleet in case of counter attack. I believe the North East Pacific fleet will need to protect Mexico or lose it.
03 Jun 14 UTC Spring, 2007: [Pacific-Russia]:To our Indian friend we would be grateful if your fleet was to support the Central Pacific
Ocean fleet as a precaution.
08 Jun 14 UTC Spring, 2007: [Europe]:Brazil, what have you done? Come back to this game and vote draw!
09 Jun 14 UTC Spring, 2007: [South-Africa]:lol it's out of my hands now until Brazil goes into Civil Disorder!!!!!!1!!!!!11!!!!!one!!!
09 Jun 14 UTC [Libya]:Europe, I will go South and would be very mad if you choose to backstab me now.
09 Jun 14 UTC [Libya]:@India: want me to bounce Kenya or support you to Northwest Indian?
09 Jun 14 UTC [Europe]:Libya, I am not trying to stab you, I was only taking the advice of my good friend, Pacific Russia, when I moved to the Med.
09 Jun 14 UTC [Pacific-Russia]:Europe your Med move is a good one .An attack on that fleet will act as an early warning to you.
10 Jun 14 UTC [Libya]:Brazil, why don't you just put a Draw and get this game over with?
10 Jun 14 UTC [Brazil]:I am here
10 Jun 14 UTC [Europe]:Then vote draw.
10 Jun 14 UTC [India]:Libya, if you could move to Kenya that would be much appreciated.
10 Jun 14 UTC [South-Africa]:Frozen-Antarctica: what are your suggestions and offers insofar as our combined naval efforts against the India? Libya will by cutting Kenya's support, so my continued hold on the Northwest Indian Ocean would require at least both of your neighboring Indian Ocean fleets to provide support. Please let me know if this is a reasonable request or if you would wisely prefer not to get involved.
10 Jun 14 UTC [South-Africa]:^^Alternatively, I suppose one of our fleets could support the other into Madagascar, eliminating the Indian fleet trapped there (and forcing India to build another army at a landlocked SC in the event that the Bombay fleet supports instead of moving).
10 Jun 14 UTC [Pacific-Russia]:Any attack on the Indian fleet with assistance from other powers will be viewed as an attack on the whole alliance. It might put the Australian Scs at risk.
10 Jun 14 UTC [Pacific-Russia]:The Indian goverment may wish

Does the Indian government require support to enter the Pacific Islands ?
10 Jun 14 UTC [Frozen-Antarctica]:Why would India moves to Pacific Island? I think that Pacific Russia is trying to disrupt my alliance with India that would left my alliance weak
11 Jun 14 UTC [South-Africa]:That's how it looks to me, too. Obviously this game isn't going to be drawn any time soon, so everyone is scrabbling for more Supply Centers (and hoping at least one more power gets eliminated from this game). India is obviously going to capture Indonesia this season as Quebec snatches Venezuela while Brazil is busy recovering Colombia from Western-Canada.
11 Jun 14 UTC [Europe]:South Africa was the one who asked for support from Frozen Antarctica against an Indian held zone, Pacific Russia only offered counter support should Frozen agree to help South Africa.
11 Jun 14 UTC [Pacific-Russia]:Frozen Antartica my government welcomes the news of your alliance and support of India in these troubled times. We mean you no harm you have already voted for peace. The gangsters who run the renegade countries of the world are distorting my words. The world is divided into two camps those who wish to draw and those who wish to fight . That I believe should determine which powers should be removed.
11 Jun 14 UTC [Pacific-Russia]:Frozen the India situation is a decoy. You should be beware of an amphibious landing on your shores from across the seas . The South African army is not that south for the scenery.
11 Jun 14 UTC [Brazil]:I am in the game,i just don't understand what is going on with western canada.
11 Jun 14 UTC [Europe]:Well, it looks like he stabbed you by taking Columbia. If you would vote draw, none of that would matter though.
11 Jun 14 UTC [South-Africa]:tl;dr: I AM GOING MOSTLY NORTH AND A LITTLE WEST. Here we go.... Frozen-Antarctica: would you like for my Southwest Atlantic fleet support-moves that fleet of yours Scr-BAi? That may not work considering Brazil's numerous defenders, but it will maintain tempo and, besides, we can probably take it next year because Brazil is probably going to lose a fleet at year's end. Meanwhile, beware the intelligent & mutually-amicable tripartate alliance of Pacific-Russia, China & India -- their mutual borders empty in order to better fill their collective borders while force-projecting invasions overseas. It is very likely that the Asian Alliance, as we might as well call it, may possibly "win" this game. Right now, Pacific-Russia is just trying to draw Frozen-Antarctica out of the open ocean and back to Antarctica under that patently false premise in order to further expose South-Africa; a simple glance at the map quickly shows that I my forces are on a committed war-footing against Libya & India to the north but not arrayed properly for any timely actions southward, which would be impossible anyways what with the mutually-held Syo-SWIO-SIO wall, which is unbreakable (although India might try to slip behind it). Also: look at how the remaining Americas are now in a three-way war -- armies from east & west clashing in the neutral Midwest -- even while being invaded from across the ocean; this game is getting interesting.
11 Jun 14 UTC [Pacific-Russia]:Your analysis is always welcome
but possibly inaccurate .
I agree the game is becoming interesting.
12 Jun 14 UTC [China]:Her Worshipful Highness is elated to hear that Frozen Antarctica is still friends with India. Any friend of India is a friend of her Glorious Imperial Majesty.

Indonesia, China's Jewel of the South Pacific, is not threatened by our allies forces. Her Grace trusts her dear Indian allies, not to mention that the Grand Chinese army could begin moving west against Vietnam and Bangladesh were we back stabbed.

The countries causing trouble now are South Africa who betrayed his ally Libya and is now attacking India, and Western Canada who moved fleets close to Russian ports and refused to answer questions about why and has now broken a long lasting peace with Brazil.

Chinese forces will continue their war with Western Canada until Canadian diplomats speak up, and we shall support India against South Africa by any means possible, though we are still distant. Her Highness respects Antarctica's desire to remain on good terms with both India and South Africa, but would also gladly welcome their support in this developing world conflict.
12 Jun 14 UTC [China]:*sheds tear over all the suffering the new world war will cause*
13 Jun 14 UTC [Libya]:Any nations that would like to help me against traitorous South Africa are welcome to share the South African SC after dust settled.
What do you think India and Quebec?
13 Jun 14 UTC [South-Africa]:India & Europe: of course you realize that if the two of you & I catch Libya from three sides in a triple-vise we can each take several more Supply Centers.
13 Jun 14 UTC [Libya]:And then South Africa will take all of your hard-won SC.
After all, he has betrayed me once, who can said he won't betray you after this.
13 Jun 14 UTC [South-Africa]:How does one prevent invasion? Strategically-arrayed defenses. Good walls make good neighbors. I honestly do regret back-stabbing you -- we had such a solid alliance -- but that's just what part of the game this is; take a look at Que+W-Can: they quickly went from allies to rivals as well. That's the nature of the game (sometimes): I kinda *have* to own *all* of Africa, because FIRST you get the CONTINENT, THEN you WIN THE GAME! So, yeah, I suppose I would *eventually* capture them all, regardless from whom.
13 Jun 14 UTC [Libya]:So Frozen, see how South Africa has gone rogue?
I am sure the second continents that South Africa will invade is yours.
Just take Sanae and BAT now before he can strengthen his holding over Antartica.
13 Jun 14 UTC [India]:The Republic of India is pleased to see that its allies are not fooled by the duplicitous words of the South African tyrant. Libya, when my fleet is once again in the Northwest Indian ocean I will assist you with advances into the south of your continent.
13 Jun 14 UTC [Europe]:South Africa, I don't want to help you. I want to see you lose. Go Libya!
17 Jun 14 UTC [Europe]:Brazil continues to fail to act, both in this game and in the World Cup.
19 Jun 14 UTC [Near-East]:Lol Europe.
20 Jun 14 UTC [South-Africa]:Europe has a point, Near-East: Brazil's absence is annoying; I almost recall that absence being declared intentional in protest of the game not drawing, and now we wait on Brazil for the draw -- ironic! Meanwhile, Frozen-Antarctica: nice try! I'll probably end up ceding BAT & SAN to you eventually, but in good time; in the mean time, let us both focus on taking South America away from Brazil completely! Last but certainly not least, my dear friend, Libya: I hope you don't mind this rather amusing game continuing thusly (muchly by my treacherous fault); consider the game to have ended last year, when it was *supposed* to draw originally.... lol.... This is just continuance, the kind of fun play-through that takes the place of wistfully looking back at a game that ended before things even got interesting, wondering: "How would this have played out to the bitter end? Who would've won; who'd've survived?" Wonder not, for this is....
A Terribly Long Game
20 Jun 14 UTC [Western-Canada]:The average length of pregnancy (from ovulation to birth) is 283.4 days.
This game has gone on for 283 days, so this game lives up its title.
20 Jun 14 UTC [Libya]:Well, if Brazil goes CD, we would automatically get Draw.
21 Jun 14 UTC [Brazil]:i am very desapointed
this game was not long and not terrible
21 Jun 14 UTC [China]:Thanks everyone! That was a very fun and interesting game. Thank you in particular to leaders of Russia and India who were good allies that never did backstabbing.
21 Jun 14 UTC [Europe]:Thank God this is over!
22 Jun 14 UTC [India]:I enjoyed this. It's not often I get to do a public messaging game on such a large scale! Thanks to you all. Maybe we can try it again some time!
22 Jun 14 UTC [South-Africa]:OMFG GR8 GAME EVERY1!!!!! It certainly could've gone on.... And on.... And on.... I'm still somewhat glad that it's over, considering that I felt I had an over-extended position. Big shout-out to EVERYONE, especially China with her eleventh-hour retreat-capture of some Pacific American beachfront (I again apologize for my too-deep roleplaying), as well as Libya, my brother (whom boredom dictated I *must* stab).... As you see, getting stabbed didn't matter, as well all got the same reward. :( IDK I guess choosing "Points Per Supply Center" erroneously means "Pot Split Evenly Between Survivors." I wasn't sure what I was going to build next -- an Army in Namibia or a Fleet in Sanae IV -- and am curious what everyone else was considering? Anyways, great game, everyone, and Happy Solstice!
