16 May 16 UTC Spring, 1: Hi everyone
16 May 16 UTC Spring, 1: hey all, looking forwards to a great game
16 May 16 UTC Spring, 1: @rome - i'd prefer to take dalmatia since it borders illyria and epirus (and could be used to mount a full-scale land invasion of greece), but you can take vindobona.

@persia, egypt - looks like we have two islands to split amongst three people. I'd like to have crete if that's okay with you.
16 May 16 UTC Spring, 1: Fine by me, Greece.
16 May 16 UTC Spring, 1: fine by me as well.
16 May 16 UTC Spring, 1: great, thanks guys
16 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1: @egypt- we could a) bounce each other out of Cyprus or b) come to some sort of agreement on it.
17 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1: interesting round
@persia - am i taking chersonesus or are you?
17 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1: What are you proposing, Persia?
17 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1: Greece I get vindobona
17 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1: Yeah that sounds good
17 May 16 UTC Spring, 2: if the south plays out how I think it will this could be a pretty interesting game
17 May 16 UTC Spring, 2: hey Persia I'm taking chersonesus if you're OK with that
17 May 16 UTC Spring, 2: well at the moment you have Petra and I have Jerusalem. i say we both move our units out of that area, for trust purposes. you let me have cyprus and we work together to expand as opposed to fighting each other when we both have other immediate threats
18 May 16 UTC Spring, 2: So you get Cyprus and all of the Levant except Petra? I can't agree to that. How about I take Cyprus and you take Tyre?
18 May 16 UTC Autumn, 2: Hey Persia, if you wanted chersonesus you could've just asked

Chersonesud is two moves away from both of our home territories so its a sensitive spot, moving in without talking at all isnt exactly ideal
18 May 16 UTC Autumn, 2: Rome - would you be interested in allying?
18 May 16 UTC Autumn, 2: Well then who would I attack?
18 May 16 UTC Autumn, 2: That's up to you lol
19 May 16 UTC Autumn, 2: just a friendly reminder that I have enough armies in the region to easily defend against any attack you try, Rome, so keep that in mind if you're allying with Carthage
19 May 16 UTC Autumn, 2: keep in mind, rome, that if you allied with me you could divert your armies and fleets to greece, and you WOULD have enough armies in the region. :)
19 May 16 UTC Autumn, 2: Yes, but it'd be blatantly obvious and give me/allies time to prepare simply because they're so far away :)
19 May 16 UTC Autumn, 2: hey rome, can i request you not build in ravenna? you have enough units to defend your own territory
19 May 16 UTC Autumn, 2: Do I? you can overwhelm my defenses if Dacra moves to Illyria
20 May 16 UTC Autumn, 2: that would cause me to be at war with both my neighbors, so I probably wouldn't

I'll move away from you if you don't build in rav, but if you do I kinda have to stay there to protect myself
20 May 16 UTC Autumn, 2: Greece press ready and save
20 May 16 UTC Autumn, 2: So, um...are you staying out of rav?
20 May 16 UTC Autumn, 2: yay
21 May 16 UTC Spring, 3: egypt, any new plans?
21 May 16 UTC Spring, 3: Survival, at this point. And wait for something to break.
22 May 16 UTC Spring, 3: I'll hit you up with a support, you don't necessarily have to use it
22 May 16 UTC Spring, 3: No real point in playing this out without half the players. Let's just draw once Carthage and Persia CD
22 May 16 UTC Spring, 3: We will see
22 May 16 UTC Spring, 3: it's possible that Persia could rejoin
23 May 16 UTC Spring, 3: okay if Persia doesn't rejoin this game will be kinda unbalanced, let's just draw after persia dies (if they do so)
23 May 16 UTC Spring, 3: hey egypt, could i get a support into cilician sea next phase?
24 May 16 UTC Autumn, 3: Sure,
25 May 16 UTC Autumn, 3: Wait I forgot that Anc Med turned into "stop the solo run" after like three years

Honestly that stab was pretty weak, Rome
31 May 16 UTC Autumn, 4: Once you finish off Persia do you want to draw?
31 May 16 UTC Autumn, 4: Works for me.
31 May 16 UTC Autumn, 4: Sure
01 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 4: That's a very satisfying triangle in the Athens region
03 Jun 16 UTC Ggwp
03 Jun 16 UTC Congrats, Rome- well played.
03 Jun 16 UTC Thanks :-)
