02 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1902: Ummmmm....that's why Russia shouldn't rule the world. They are grossly underprepared for the situations that really matter. I don't know if this game includes politics, but maybe we should think about the good people of Europe and it's surrounding nations and not let trailer exploding leadership be in control of the government.
02 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1902: ChemE Car 101: Don't put aluminum dust in Sodium hydroxide. The tales still linger...
02 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1902: Great Russian people magnificent safety program. Is excellent. St. Petersburg alone have OSHA recordables below 0.33!
02 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1902: **The Glorious Democratic People's Republic of Russia has declared a crusade on the infidel capital of Constantinople.** :D
02 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1902: Those righteous Christian states who aid us in securing this pillar of the Orthodox church will be rewarded with seeing Constantinople remain Constantinople, rather than Istanbul which was really a silly name to begin with.
02 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1902: OSHA...who is OSHA to stand in the way of progress. We have burned their bodies in the deepest part of what you call hell. We push forward in the name of progress no matter what the cost. For if the world were to experience a cataclysmic event and not be prepared there would be no survivors. This is why our people stay steadfast in the face of danger and will not back down to anyone. If it is a crusade you want, then it is a crusade you shall have!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
02 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1902: Woot :D
03 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1902: For those who were wondering, I merely attacked Tyrolia to make sure Austria didn't kill Sam while he's away on his little camping trip.
03 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1902: Austria doesn't take harmless moves lightly I'll have you know
03 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1902: Expect the Turks on your doorstep at any moment!
03 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1902: But no really the loss of Romania has put Russia gypsy exports at an all time low :(
03 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1902: Austria does not in fact take harmless moves lightly, I'll have you know!
03 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1902: I am, however, sorry to hear about the gypsy export problem in Russia...
03 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1902: In Chicago, staying the night with family. Tomorrow, I finish my drive to Rochester! Whoot!
03 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1902: Orientation starts on the 11th, and I get my white coat on the 15th :-)
03 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1902: Guess which one of us DOESN'T have to worry about exploding barrels in the workplace.
03 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1902: Well I work at a software company, in a building no where near any compressed gasses or large quantities of flammable materials, so... me?
03 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1902: But the danger of chemical exposure and being buried under tons of molten material really livens up the place.

Gypsys, huh? An underrated resource. This game has all kinds of cool perks!
03 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: Oops, so not all turns are as long as the first? Now that's unfortunate.
04 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: Guess which one of us DOESN'T have to worry about exploding barrels in the workplace.
04 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: Unfortunately, the great Russian people have failed in their crusade towards Constantinople. We regretfully cancel the crusade, and we've sent the officials in charge of that to wander Siberia for several years.
06 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: Russia wants to put out a friendly reminds that winter is coming. As the protector of the great northern expanses it is my duty to keep the white walkers at bay with my meager 100 man garrison in St. Petersburg (luckily white walker attack is not OSHA recordable). Sincerely yours, The Warden of the North.
06 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: Dear Russia:
We should have a wedding. Maybe Red? There will be dragons. And a sassy midget. And incest.
Sincerely,
I know nothing about your Lord of the Rings references.
08 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1903: "Ganondorf was great in Lord of the Circles" - Reddit
08 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: What territory does Sardinia belong to?
09 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Apparently none of them, which is a tad odd because it's a fairly big place. It used to belong to Carthage too, you know.
09 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: We've all played Rome Total War kthx
09 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Apparently none of them, which is a tad odd because it's a fairly big place. It used to belong to Carthage too, you know.
09 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: All roads lead to Rome, and all sea routes lead to Carthage. I'm sure that worked well for them back in the day, but it's causing me a little trouble today.

17 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1905: Well I missed a turn but nothing happened.. A nod to the Turks for not attacking me :D
20 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: Has everyone seen the new awesome short from Walt and Jesse?
20 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ovqM72em1dA
22 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1906: Neat video with the pawns and things
22 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1906: I'd like to take this time to sing an elegy to the fallen Germans.

They say
The Iliac Bay
Is the place to barrel around
Without a bit of apparel on,
As advertised in that carol song
A tune that's sung as the west wind blows
About its lovely not wearing any clothes.
Ladies singing high notes, men singing lows,
Implying that the most luscious depravity
And complete absence of serious gravity
Can only be found in the waterous cavity
Of Iliac Bay.

If you are the type who is more a sinner than a sinned,
You'll find it all in Morrowind.
But the truth, my child,
Is that nothing more wild
That an ordinary fashion
Kind of slightly mad passion
Can be detected if at all
In Sentinel and Daggerfall.

Whatever your odd needs: feathered, scaled, or finned,
You'll find it all in Morrowind

It's an invention of bards
That Bretons and Redguards
Have more than some staid fun
And suffer deviant fornication.
For the most of madness, not the least,
The wise debaucher heads out east.

Where your once steely reserve is now merely tinned,
You'll find it all in Morrowind.

In Morrowind,
There is sin.
But, pray, do not confuse Dunmer variety
With that found in tepid Western society
Compared to which, it nearly is piety.
It isn't terribly ingenious calling it prudery
Observing the Dark Elf aversion to nudity.
After all, the preferred sort of lewdity
In these parts is far more pernicious.

From the Ashlanders to the wettest fishes
You'll find pleasure and pain quite delicious
In Morrowind.

If you find yourself with unkind kinship with your kin
You'll find it all in Morrowind.
22 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1906: Also too bad about Austria as well
22 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1906: So say we all.
24 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: The Italian Prime Minister is vacationing in Seattle for the next week and a half, and may be slower to respond to messages than usual. Although this most likely will not affect his order submissions like the camping trip, I think we should all keep this in mind before we all start sacking the Italian Peninsula.
24 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: I say we all draw after Clayton finishes killing Italy. I'm getting tired of this game as Clayton is the only one that will talk to me and he's obviously a lying squirrel. Joe and I are in a stalemate that's probably not going to end, Derek logs in every 3 days, and even if Joe and Clayton kill me it would still take several weeks of drudgery that I'd rather not play through
24 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: Why wait? Draw now.
24 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: hehe :D
24 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: But really though if Derek who hasn't played half the game gets to survive, I don't see why Sam who also didn't play half the game should die
25 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: I only missed two or three turns, but they were important turns to miss. :(
25 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: I've told off all of the slimy French snails (Glorious Dictator of France included) from Morocco to Normandy so in my mind this game is a victory. With that in mind, I am really going to resign as this game is just making me angry now lol.
25 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: Morocco is not a French holding
04 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1908: gg
