08 Aug 18 UTC Spring, 1901: Ystävät hyvät, ehdotan että omien orderien näyttäminen toisille ei ole sallittua. Varsin hyvä sääntö, kehtaisin väittää
08 Aug 18 UTC Spring, 1901: Toverit! Tämä on silkkaa propagandaa jota toveri englanti koittaa levittää.

Ps. Mutta älkää kuitenkaan näyttäkö liikkeitänne muille. Se olisi sivistyneesti sanottuna "Dick move".
05 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1904: Oh, how do I dream of the good days now past us. The days when men still held such foolishness as Freedom or Justice or Peace in high regard. But now days are going down in to the West and men have lost their reason. How did it come to this?

The Dark Lord Juhizz has gathered his armies in the bleak valleys of France while our eyes have been diverted in the East. Now he has deemed the hour fit and launched his invasion of all the Free Countries of Europe to lay upon them a night that will last forever. This he intends to do.

There is no denying it: his armies are sizeable and consist of hard men, devoid of any humanity. Great warriors, no doubt. Still greater is his ability to poison the minds of men. Such foul deeds he tricks them into committing, presumably in the name of Righteousness. Even a madman could see this loathsome corruption in the developments of this Autumn.

Most evidently we can observe Kaiser Wilhelm's army in Silesia, where their commander's mind has been twisted in such a way that he no longer even pretends to care for his citizens or his own well-being. Instead of protecting Berlin he chose to assist the Dark Lord into München, a plan without any possible gains for Germany. His mind has been taken in direct control by the Dark Lord Juhizz. I can see no alternative explanation.

In East then, Emperor Nicholas II has likewise been deceived into a betrayal of me. One need not look far in the South either to see that Austria-Hungary is nothing but a puppet of the Dark Lord. Only the great Italian nation still dares to openly stand against the Enemy. And no wonder for I have long known Victor Emmanuel III to be a good man and true. He alone has fought the Enemy.

I understand how the Dark Lord deceives you, and I sympathize because I too have been in your position. Now is the last hour to wake up, and see the truth of the matter. Do not forsake Light this easily, my friends, do not abandon your hope. There is still strength and courage to be found in men, foul deeds to be redeemed. Stand with England and Italy to earn your Freedom, or fall with a knife sticking out of your back. The choice is yours.

11 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1905: The Dark Lord has summoned his southern allies! With sword and flame they mean to butcher all who still walk in the path of Righteousness. Together these repulsive ”countries” command exactly one half of Europe’s military forces. This is the tipping point. The hour runs late as the siege of Austria-Hungary begins and the Italian refugees are slain. There is all the evidence you might require of Turkish cruelty. The hour runs late indeed, but the war must endure. Let Austria-Hungary fall. Let Russia fall, let Germany fall. Let even the British Isles fall. It will not sway our hearts. England shall fight till the bitter end, and then some.


Still in the process of restoring the King’s Peace,

15 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1906: On a knife's edge the world did lay for a moment, but for now the doom has been postponed: a victory has been achieved, albeit a small one. It is on a sword's edge we now lay instead.

Evil has a tendency to be the cause of its own destruction, it has been said, and here we see the truth of it once again. In East the Corsair King of the Black Sea has forsaken his oath of loyalty for the Turkish Alliance on the very first chance of betrayal. No doubt the Alliance will yet bribe him back with promises of silks and riches, but the weakness of their ranks is glaring enough.

In the same vein, the armies of the Dark Lord flee at the first sight of His Majesty's Royal Fleet now that their numbers are not as overwhelming. Fair odds deeply frighten these wicked creatures. Victory it is to be, His Majesty's Royal Fleet will make sure of it. They are made of true steel.

Fighting the good fight,

King Edvard VII
