06 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1901: You have the choice if available to retreat or disband. Will disband if no orders submitted. Sometimes disband is the only choice.
06 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1901: great, thanks
06 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1901: HM Government hereby declares war on Austria-Hungary. We have suffered their insults too long. Besides, we enjoy a little bit of culture, and feel that Vienna really ought belong to the enlightened British Empire.
07 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1901: We had a suitable rebuttal to the Islander's claim to Our Royal Properties and Lands, which We will keep to Ourselves. Instead We will twirl the Imperial Mustache.
07 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Listen, I'm willing to be a neutral third party in this matter. Simply let me station my units in, say, Vienna and London, to facilitate quick and effective communication, and I'm sure we'll come to a peaceable solution soon.
07 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1901: As a professional elephant, I feel I am most suited to say baraag.
07 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1901: We laugh at your ridiculous moustache twirling, and counter with Our regal wave, handed down from mother to son, and grandson.
07 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Je ne comprends pas ce qui se passe . Pourquoi est-il un éléphant avec un moustashe? Et pourquoi ne dit-il baraag. Je gesticule dans votre direction rugueux et insulter votre sœur.
07 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Je serais un peu plus intimidé si t'avais conjugé ton troisième phrase corrèctement. #shotsfired
08 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Pourquoi doit-il tournoyer sa moustache alors ? est -il fou ?
08 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1901: et pourquoi sa sœur ? a elle aussi une moustache?
08 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Merde, ma tentative de sonder intelligente en utilisant Google translate a échoué. Je vais maintenant retirer dans la honte.
08 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Ma sœur est mort dans l'infance, Chien-Cochon Anglais. Mais sa moustache était magnifique.
08 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Je regrette de le faire !
08 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Scarily it is the Italian who does have a moustache
08 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Ah, we see you've decided to meddle in the affairs of Serbia. Our Royal crystal-ball-gazer has divined that this may be very bad....for everybody. We suggest you reconsider, lest We are forced to intervene by invading Belgium.
08 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Yes, because we've seen in history how well invading Belgium tends to go.
08 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: (From off-stage) How many times do ve haf to tell you: advizor, not cryztal-ball-gazer! Do ve haf to do everyzink ourzelves?
24 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: Balls, I thought I'd saved orders.
25 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: Never have I played against such a suicidal Russia... I was clearly unprepared for their insanity. Have a good rest of the game, all.
25 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: Thanks man, gg
25 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: Yeah, I've no issues sacrificing myself for the good of my allies :P
26 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: cheers pal, better luck next game.
27 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1904: Still don't understand why you did that Russia. You could still be in an OK position if you hadn't completely given up.
27 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1904: Because I'd rather get my allies into a great position than have an alliance of okay positions.
27 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1904: Fair enough. Hey want to be my ally in the next game I play? It would be cool if you gave me all your centers!
27 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1904: Cute.
27 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1904: lol
28 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1904: Yeah, I feel like Russia isn't really understanding the point of the game :P
03 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: I'm sorry guys, but next Tuesday (11th) I'm going on holiday for 2 weeks. Would anyone be against calling a draw soon?
04 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: WELL THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE TO KNOW A LITTLE EARLIER ._.
04 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: I am giving everyone a weeks notice, seems enough to me. Anyway that message wasn't for you, just the players of this game.
04 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: owned
05 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Gonna need a senzu for that one.
05 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Sorry to deny you the pleasure of eliminating me so quickly Monsieur
05 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: No apologies necessary my good sir. It was a rather brazen deceit I must admit, I shall just have to take my sweet time with you.
05 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1906: That unfortunately I cannot stop them unless the selfish Austria and a sudden switch of allegiance by England came to Italian Aide.

Remember Italian wine is much better than the French stuff...Then again maybe that's why the French have invaded
05 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1906: Even better. Why don't just all go home and leave me to my excellent wine and pasta. I am sure we could set up a trade agreement. You give me one of your centres a year and I send you wine and pasta, maybe some olives and olive oil as a bonus
05 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1906: Throw in some ciabatta and you have a deal!
05 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1906: I would appreciate it if people readied their orders as quick as they can. I'm enjoying this game and would like to get as much out of it as I can before I am forced to leave.
05 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1906: Even better I can offer homemade Foccacia bread
06 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: Ohh, yeah this is turning out nicely. So what was the deal? You give me Rome, Naples, and the bread? So generous ;)
06 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: Can I have Tuscany? I've a thing for their wine
10 Aug 15 UTC are we drawing this game now?
10 Aug 15 UTC I would appreciate that. I have to leave early tomorrow morning. Thanks all for the game, sorry I had to cut it short.
10 Aug 15 UTC done. Good game lads, till next time
