15 Nov 13 UTC Spring, 1: Good luck all.
15 Nov 13 UTC Spring, 1: To Carthage and Persia, how do we want to divide this up so we can remain at peace?
16 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 1: The border as it stands looks good to me
16 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 1: Carthage would you like a truce?
16 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 1: Sure
16 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 1: Also, Sar is mine and Baleares is yours?
18 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 2: ersia would you like a truce?
Deal with Egypt, I will with Rome...
18 Nov 13 UTC Spring, 3: Sounds good to me
19 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 3: Wow Rome, you really had to attack Punic Sea. I thought we had an alliance D:
19 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 3: I didn't attack Punic... I thought you were stabbing me so I moved to Sar and Silica
19 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 3: Sardinia move to Punic, you ruined my master plan >:(
19 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 3: Oh pfft that... that wasn't very smart of you.
20 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 3: Bah, it allowed me to join the build buddy club with Persia. Totally worth it
20 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 3: Every time I've played on this map Egypt has gotten thrashed. I assumed it was just because the players weren't very good, but I see now that it is a strategy problem. Never fight Persia as Egypt. Maybe it would work better against Carthage. I don't know.
20 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 3: The one game I did well as Egypt was when Persia had agreed to truce and I could focus on Carthage, though the chances of Persia agreeing to side with Egypt are low.
20 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 3: I'd hate to give away potentially dangerous volatile information, but with Carthage and Egypt it's all about Leptis

If Egypt can talk down Persia (that front greatly favors Persia) and takes Leptis, then Egypt as a shot
20 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 3: Yeah, I can see that. Maybe next time.
20 Nov 13 UTC Spring, 4: I'd like to thank greece for being Rome's punching bag
22 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 5: Egypt should aid their powerful Carthaginian neighbors
22 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 5: Not sure that there is much I can do. I'm barely holding against Persia.
22 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 5: Don't let a bounce happen in the Gulf, and I'll prop you up as long as possible
22 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 5: Gulf of Sytris? Okay.
22 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 5: Shhh it's a secret
23 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 5: First display of organized resistance of Rome :/
23 Nov 13 UTC Spring, 6: Hey Egypt, there'a purple stain in the Libyan sea that the seamen of Syrtis would appreciate your help in destroying
24 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 6: Persia, do you an on tying?
24 Nov 13 UTC Spring, 7: I am willing to draw once Egypt and Rome are defeated.
24 Nov 13 UTC Spring, 7: I really regret the misorder that supported rome to Etruria
24 Nov 13 UTC Spring, 7: Rome, if you play nice I'll help you resist the Persian tide.
24 Nov 13 UTC Spring, 7: So, I help you into a solo and in return I survive?
24 Nov 13 UTC Spring, 7: Not solo. I bungled any solo chance I had by not supporting Venetia in Spring 5.
You act as a barrier between Persia and myself, and in return I prolong your existence by supporting your units/not attacking.
25 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 7: Carthage, let's wipe the map of Egypt and Rome so we can draw and move on to another game. Or we can drag this out.
26 Nov 13 UTC This is taking too long...
27 Nov 13 UTC Agreed, lets stop fighting each other wipe them off the map and call it a day? This turn I will take Memphis and Athens and you take Cyrene, Sparta, Venice, and Roma and we then call this a day. I will support you into Venice so this can work.
27 Nov 13 UTC Well you cant take Roma yet, but move your sea in Punic and you'll get it the next turn.
27 Nov 13 UTC vindobona to venetia
27 Nov 13 UTC Yup
27 Nov 13 UTC That puts you dangerously close to a solo...
Would you be willing to kill Egypt and draw?
27 Nov 13 UTC I wanna live!
27 Nov 13 UTC Sure, I'll take him out, can I get support one to Cyrene from Alexandria and one to Memphis from Thebes so I can take him out in one turn and end this.
29 Nov 13 UTC If u want to live then well then draw Egypt so this game will end.
29 Nov 13 UTC I guess we both can't be trusted Carthage, I also love how everyone sided with u even though u have been in the lead the entire time.
29 Nov 13 UTC Indeed. You played well though. Good game
