15 Jul 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Hello all! Enjoy the game!
Thomas Dullan is the author of "Evening Up the Scores" published on Amazon Kindle.
25 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Well educated, this Italy.
As he broke the entirety of his treaty with me and crossed the Rubicon (in the wrong direction), he quoted Caesar "Alea Jacta Est"
Bad news for you, Italy!
I may be Welsh, but I'm no Dai and I'm not thrown.
25 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: I'm still trying to find the relation to Wales :P

Besides, I think we all agree you can't be allowed into the Mediterranean :P
25 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Alea jacta est means 'the die is cast'. pun... the Dai is cast ???
25 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Don worry Italy got a new friend of his level, UK :-P ... i wonder who will betraye in first .... hahahahah ... i bet italy will do first :-)
25 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Yeah, not sure what a Dai is :P
25 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Oh Dear! Dai is a nickname for anyone Welsh - a local variant of David.
25 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: I'm going to back Italy on this one, that pun was incredibly obscure.
25 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: I think everyone should back me up on this, just like my reclamation of Italian Dalmatia!
25 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: This is the first time I have had my puns used as a retrospective excuse for blatant treachery.
25 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: I was taking Italy's side about the pun. Don't really have a dog in the Trieste fight.
25 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Sorry if that was unclear.
25 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: What Pun means?
25 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: It's a play on words. A joke.

If you're not a native speaker, you probably won;t get them. Not your fault. By their nature they require an intimate knowledge of the language and common English phrases and terms.
25 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: yeah i'm not a native speaker .. but still ....what this joke imply ... quickly?
25 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: I can't explain it very well. Sorry. My point was that the joke is obscure, and hard to get.
25 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: .... suggests two or more meanings, by exploiting multiple meanings of words, or of similar-sounding words .... wikipedia
25 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: It`s getting too high end literate for me here ... lol
25 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: It`s getting too high end literate for me here ... lol
25 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: je vous l'expliquerai plus tard en français, Khoudja
25 Jul 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Après m’avoir piqué Trieste, l’Italie m’a écrit ‘alea iacta est’, une citation de Jules César, qui l’a dit tout en traversant le fleuve, le Rubicon. C’était le trahison qui a fait déclenché la guerre civile de la république romaine. Cette citation se traduit en français litéralement ‘le dé a été jeté’, mais je crois qu’on dit ‘les jeux sont faits’.
En anglais, on dit ‘the die is cast’. J’ai essayé un jeu de mots. ‘Dai’ (qui se prononce du même façon que ‘die’) est un prénom typiquement gallois, une contraction de ‘David’.
Le jeu de mots n’a pas réussi, non seulement parce que vous êtes français, mais également parce que les autres joueurs sont des américains qui ne savent même pas où se trouve les Pays de Galles.
Il vaudrait mieux que je me concentre sur ce jeu de société plutôt que d’essayer des jeux de mots ridicules.
26 Jul 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Merci beaucoup pour l'explication ... that was clear ;-)
26 Jul 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Despite some border disputes, England is involved in no major wars. No major avenues of expansion present themselves either. As such, the crown is content with the territory it has. A vote to draw is being offered.
26 Jul 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Given that we all stand to gain substantially from a draw, having knocked out players in a big-pot game, I would also be OK with a draw.
31 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: Let´s all sit at the negotiation table for an armistice
31 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: OK.
My position is unchanged.
For the moment, I am not in favour.
I have no grudge against Russia, but I don't think his single remaining piece buys him a seat at the armistice table. Sorry, Ethan.
I had a set of agreements with Italy, which he broke. And I bear grudges. So I want to see him defeated before considering a three-way.
Nothing personal about Chris, you understand, personable, cultured man who knows a good bit about ancient history.
I would, of course, want Germany included, of course, in any draw we might agree.
31 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: I agree that Russia should not participate in a draw, however because you cannot leave Trieste unoccupied, you have no hope of making inroads against me on the Italian peninsula. I can hold it with extreme ease. Thus, I hope you will put aside your anger over my admittedly ill-considered move and go for the four-way draw, if only to save us all time.
31 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: If we let such feuds delay all political settlements, we'd never get any.
01 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: Yes, although I pull out all the stops to get even (ironic, given the nature of the novel I have published on amazon kindle), if it turns out to be impracticable, I shall just have to take a pragmatic approach. I still need some convincing that a breakthrough is impossible (rather than merely very difficult). If you think that you have an absolutely impregnable set of moves, you take no risk by telling me what it is.
01 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1906: It's not a special set of moves - with only one fleet stuck in the Aegean, you have no hope in hell of ever getting through to Italy. That's just a plain fact.
04 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: Sorry about the NMR - I've been battling strep for the last few days and lost track of time.
04 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: Definitely not like you to NMR. I hope you will recover soon - from the infection, not from the NMR :-)
04 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: Well now the antibiotics are coursing through my system, my tonsils are the size of slightly smaller strawberries :P
04 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: Get well soon.
05 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: le vostre tonsille hanno molto di cui rispondere
05 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: Haha translated that, and you're right... They've imperiled all of Italy! :P
08 Aug 14 UTC In the light of their magnificent contribution to the defence effort, His Imperial Majesty the Dual Emperor has awarded to the Field Marshall of the land forces and the Grand Admiral of the Navy the newly created honour of Knight Grand Cross of the Purple Tonsil.
08 Aug 14 UTC Even with my failing eyesight, I can read the writing on the wall!
08 Aug 14 UTC Thanks for the game, everyone!
08 Aug 14 UTC I spotted that you were all logged on at the same time and figured that you were negotiating a change of allegiance. I was not quick-witted enough to order Pru-Ber & Boh-Mun. When Germany moved out of Spain into Portugal (thus ensuring that Italy would not have to remove front-line units), it confirmed that you were all allied. So I chickened out!
