09 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 1: Good luck all
09 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 1: Thank you my friend good luck to you to!
10 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 1: Thank you for your well wishes friend.
11 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 2: Greece if you dont take Vind I promise I wont kill you first. ;)
11 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 2: lol :)
11 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 2: Greece, peace treaty? So you can focus your wrath on Rome.
11 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 2: Sure, If you're willing to help my southern move. We can certainly DMZ mid-turkey for now.
11 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 2: Cathage you know what that means if they ally then we need to. What say you?
11 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 2: I was hoping you'd expand more west so that we don't conflict over land, but I'll see as things go.
11 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 2: Someone wanna ally?
11 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 2: Agreed Rome.
11 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 2: Good! If at all possable could you get some fleets sent towards Greece? I dont think I could hold them off myself.
11 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 3: I want no war with you Carthage. And as a matter of fact, it would be very easy for us to take out Rome together and split his SCs. Think about it.
12 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 3: And then you and Persia take him out. Cathage think about it Cathage has no reason to ally with you except to distroy me then he will turn on you.
12 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 3: Cathage think about it Greece has no reason to ally with you except to distroy me then he will turn on you*
12 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 3: In response to your discourse- Greece and Rome my friend andI have tactical reasons not to divulge my intentions.
12 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 3: Greece, I'd prefer you don't expand around me so that I have nowhere to go.
13 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 3: Ok, I just wanted to avoid losing a unit, but I'll remove myself from there.
13 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 3: Thanks for pulling back Cathage. :)
13 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 4: Same assist if you please Persia :)
13 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 4: I was once like you, Egypt. I actually survived for a few more years with just one fleet by roaming around and taking centers from rome and carthage.
13 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 4: Please don't ruin me Egypt on your way out if you want revenge then through everything you have at Persia and Greece who have distroyed you.
13 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 4: Well Egypt, you could either submit and accept defeat or ruin Rome and try to survive, there isn't much you can do in your homeland anymore.
13 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 4: If he did that then he would give you the best chance of winning. The way I see it is if he takes you out with him he is not surrendering but making those that attacked him pay.
13 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 4: Well, he could *try*....
13 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 4: Egypt I'll let you take Saguntum- I'd rather have you take one of my territories instead of attacking Rome which drastically weakens him.
13 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 4: "To believe or not to believe"
13 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 4: Psst Egypt... take Baleares ;)
13 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 4: Well just saying, futile revenge is what make people fail in this game.
13 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 4: Egypt if you leave me alone this turn then I will give you Baleares as soon as I have another center to replace it. And then I will help you and together we will try to retake all territory controlled by Greece and Persia until they cease to exist. You will be able to both survive and get revenge. You asked for an alliance its yours if you want it. Greece/Persia have only been trying to manipulate you. And if anyone tries to say I wont live up to my agreement. I give you my word I will not betray you. In all my years of playing diplomacy I have never broken a promise and I dont intend to now.
13 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 4: Ok Rome I'll leave you alone but Carthage did offer sarguntum to me soo
13 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 4: You have my thanks :) As for Saguntum that is naturally up to Cathage.
14 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 4: What did I tell you~
14 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 5: Anyways, I'm voting for draw once there are 3 players left.
14 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 5: I did warn you egypt... And thank you persia, I could use some help beating rome back here. Could you support me into Miletus from Byz?
14 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 5: Will do.
14 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 5: I think you just got stabed Greece.
14 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 5: So much for the draw... *sigh*
15 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 5: Well, I didn't mention which 3, and the way things were going...
15 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 5: Sorry about that Egypt- I completely blanked on Saguntum. You could go to Beleares but if you still want Saguntum go for it- I'll order Mauretania to hold.
15 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 5: I'm playing 6 or 7 games now and I'm obviously having a hard time keeping them apart.
15 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 5: I'll take sarguntum but please just make sure you destroy Persia
15 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 5: Might as well ask this now, Rome and Carthage, do you want a 3-way draw?
17 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 6: I would be open to a draw.
19 Mar 14 UTC Rome you want to draw?
19 Mar 14 UTC Possably.
20 Mar 14 UTC Rome- just an explanation of my moves.
They aren't intended to be aggressive- I would rather draw.
If you decide to go for the solo I will work with Persia against you.
Again I'd rather just agree to come to a 3 way draw with Persia.
20 Mar 14 UTC I want to see both of you vote draw before I do.
20 Mar 14 UTC Good game guys.
