02 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1914: END PLS.
03 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1914: ...What do you have against me that you won't let me join your draw? Why are you insist on getting a perfect 17/17, rather than just ending it? What kind of psychopath are you, Austria?
04 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1915: I hate you both so much right now.
04 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1915: You liked me a couple of messages ago. This game changes people....
04 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1915: And you didn't know that already?
04 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1915: Maybe I'm just insane. Ever consider that possibility?

Maybe we're all insane.
04 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1915: I doubt it but who knows, maybe you're in an operating room crying out for help and in your insanity have created the fantasy of a webdiplomacy game where your anger can be taken out on two people you have never met and most likely won't so you can justify your rage against the doctors who are merely trying to 'cure' you
04 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1915: Man, that's deep.
04 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1915: The doctor's name is
Penelope
04 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1915: Wait guys
Penelope
Penelope has 8 letters and she is the mistress of the kaiser in sweden
Kaiser and Sweden both have 6 letters and the current monarch of Sweden is Carl XVI
8x2=16
16
Sulphur has 16 protons and was properly identified in 1777 by Antoine Lavoisier who convinced the scientific community that it was an element in itself
Antoine Lavoisier
It's Lavoisier
No it's not LevioSah!
As Lavoisier was in ties with the enlightenment period of which was entrusted with the idea to move away from witches and wizards
You know who else was in the enlightenment period
That's right
Not Alexander the Great as he died 323 BCE in Iraq
3 plus 3 divided by 2
Equals
3
A triangle has 3 sides
Illuminant confirmed
04 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1915: I'm afraid you know too much now, Austria....
04 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1915: I was angry before, but I can forgive you for having come up with something that hilarious.
05 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1915: 10/10 3spoki5me
05 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1915: wake up sheeple
06 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1916: C'mon, what's the point of this? Just put up your draw vote already, Austria.
06 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1916: It's not about winning it's about sending a message... or something like that.
06 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1916: What message could you possibly want to send me? I'm just an ordinary guy who doesn't care for people who try to do insane and silly things with no regard for how anyone else feels.
06 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1916: Hey, don't ask me. I'm just a guy going with the flow. I have no idea what's going on. Who am I? Where am I?
06 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1916: You are the sultan of Turkey, you are in Scotland and you still smell like falafels.
06 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1916: Except you also smell like haggis too at the same time.

I highly doubt that the queen of Austria will sleep with you as you are now.
06 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1916: Wow, rude. You underestimate the power of not giving a fuck. Which is not surprising, since it's coming from the nation that has a specific time for drinking tea.
07 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1916: Empress Of Austrian Europa finds these comments harsher by the second
07 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1916: I do not care anymore.
07 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1916: So, I was going to say something, but forgot because of England's verbal attack (which really hurt my feelings btw). It will eventually be a forum post, but since we have such a friendly realtionship here, I decided to ask you guys first. Basically: If your interest in games is not limited to diplomcy, I may soon need a person to livestream with for a twitch channel since i suck at talking to myself. So yeaaaah, if you are interested, just tell me.
07 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1916: I could do that, depending on where you live. I live in Australia, so it's a bit difficult. And I didn't mean you, I was mostly aiming it at the character you were playing.
07 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1916: Don't worry I'm not easily offended. Also, nothing is determined about time, so right now it's not an issue.
07 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1916: Ahhhhh another fellow aussie
Where do you hail from?
07 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1916: Melbourne, and I won't go any more specific than that with a stranger.
07 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1916: Ahhh you're across bass straight
07 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1916: I wanted to make a joke about Australian accent, but I have nothing... Let's just pretend that I made a funny joke, alright? OMG it was so funny.
08 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1916: Well done.....turkish humour
09 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1916: You know what? I'm done. If you guys still won't just let me join in your draw just for being a good sport, I'm done. You're so damn mean.
09 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1916: Do you want me to get down on my goddamn hands and knees and beg you? Because I will, I swear to God.
11 Oct 15 UTC So
This is it
12 Oct 15 UTC This was a long game
12 Oct 15 UTC England, I'll buy you some ice cream after that to help you COOL down.
12 Oct 15 UTC As the Austrian Empress looked over her vast empire, her dream a pan european nation was at hand
She kept thinking to herself though
What of the Turks, they are a trusted ally to the empire...and to me
Though...they threaten the basis of my dream and the security of my people
Do not forsake me for my actions my beloved Sultan
She began to take out a pen a began to write the words that would end this senseless fighting
Fleet Mid Atlantic will be taking a tour in Lisbon, The armies in Serbia and Romania will secure the Balkans and the french legions will secure the northern half of the country
As she wrote those words, she began to tear up
"General" She called "Send these commands immediately, make it quick and painless, this war has gone on long enough"
She trembled as she handed the command to him as she let go though she muttered
"Alea iacta est, my actions are not my own, Deus Vult"




Thought it was about time for a happy ending, am sorry my dear ally Turkey but I am too paranoid about you moving so close to my home centres
12 Oct 15 UTC I knew that would happen though. The closer is the end, the more paranoid players get
12 Oct 15 UTC If you read manga, Kaiji is good at exploring this effect
12 Oct 15 UTC Hmph. Took you long enough.
12 Oct 15 UTC Yeah he could have done the same thing like 5 turns ago lol. Anyway, England, I'll pm you if the whole streaming thing works out
12 Oct 15 UTC Alright. Thanks.

At least I still have Edinburgh, the greatest city on God's green Earth. Hey, Empress, how'd you like to come over for tea sometime?
12 Oct 15 UTC In Edinburgh???? Oh please I've got turks near Vienna with better villages than Edinburgh
12 Oct 15 UTC Sounds intriguing. Drink tea in Edinburgh and plot how to overthrow evil Austrian Empress.
12 Oct 15 UTC Evil? I brought Peace to this world, the world embrace the new state I shall bring in
I shall call it Arstotzka
And we shall ask only one thing from outsiders
Papers, Please
12 Oct 15 UTC Sing glory to the new Arstotzkan state
12 Oct 15 UTC ....I need some rebels in my life.
12 Oct 15 UTC Glory to Arstotzka!
12 Oct 15 UTC As good as those villages may be, they don't have tea.
13 Oct 15 UTC Nice gg
