02 Aug 17 UTC Peace restored to Europe at last. Italy has some final concerns we wish to raise in the negotiations that formally end the war. Namely, it is of critical importance that Rumania be included in this Reborn Latin Empire: her people are Catholic, their language is Romantic, and their hearts lie with Rome, not Moscow.

Naturally, we do not come to the bargaining table empty handed. The affinity and shared history between Bulgaria and the East is widely known. Italy recognises this fact and indeed her soldiers only find themselves there as a happenstance of their liberation from the corrupt and crumbling Ottoman regime.

Italy is prepared to vacate Bulgaria, evacuating her troops into Serbia, moving the Serbian troops into Rumania, making way for the Russian troops to move into Bulgaria.

If this final condition can be met, Italy's war goals will have been satisfied, and peace will be possible.
02 Aug 17 UTC France stands behind Italy on this matter.
02 Aug 17 UTC So Italy wants Romania in exchange of Bulgaria?
03 Aug 17 UTC That's right.
03 Aug 17 UTC Okay Italy! So I will move into Bulagria
03 Aug 17 UTC [OOC: sorry guys, I thought the final order would go through. Well played all]
03 Aug 17 UTC Gg all
03 Aug 17 UTC GG indeed! Was very tempting to have a go at you russia, but a three way victory isnt bad at all
03 Aug 17 UTC If French really go to Russia, Italy should attack France; if not, France will solo.
03 Aug 17 UTC This was mainly my concern. If we were to continue, then my first move would definitely have been to convoy the troops from Naples into Syria, and go for Turkey. Thing is, that's a big effort, and by the time I got Turkey, if I did, France might have Northern Europe entirely. It might have been possible to keep France to a 2-way draw, or possibly even to seize a moment of weakness to go for a solo victory, but it's a tall order, and a 3-way draw was on the table.
03 Aug 17 UTC Lol, France has 5 armies in Germany. With this 5 armies, France outrun my armies in Warsaw, Moscow, and even Vienna; not to mention the North SCs which are easily lose to France.
03 Aug 17 UTC France will take all the rest before Italy completely taking Turkey which are 3 SCs only
03 Aug 17 UTC Which is why I took the draw.
03 Aug 17 UTC Yeah, you should. 2 ways draw is too dangerous if you are the lower hand.
03 Aug 17 UTC I was actually really aware of the fact that I was a little ahead of italy. I was very tempted to rush east and pick up warsaw for a solo victory but I figured that italy had been a good ally and we've got to uphold that french honour. I would have settled with the 2-way victory that we had planned Italy, :P
03 Aug 17 UTC Good to know, I thought you might, but wasn't willing to risk it on goodwill alone. I needed a clearer picture of how I could rapidly bring myself up to parity, and though it wouldn't have been impossible, it also wouldn't have been easy.
