23 Sep 18 UTC Spring, 1903: GameMaster: JohnSmith540 was banned: repeat multi. The time until the next phase has been extended by one phase length to give an opportunity to replace the player.
Remember to finalize your orders if you don't want to wait, so the game isn't held up unnecessarily!
24 Sep 18 UTC Spring, 1903: What is “repeat multi”?
24 Sep 18 UTC Spring, 1903: Multi accounting.
24 Sep 18 UTC Spring, 1903: So, do we wait for the game to unpause by itself or do we vote to unpause? I voted just in case
24 Sep 18 UTC Spring, 1903: i voted to unpause. I think its there to give time for a new player to join but it appears a new played has joined.
24 Sep 18 UTC Spring, 1903: Thanks England

I don't care if we unpause yet or not, but I have more time now so I'll vote unpause and let the rest decide
24 Sep 18 UTC Spring, 1903: If you don’t mind, can we keep it paused until tomorrow? I’m still traveling with limited service.
24 Sep 18 UTC Spring, 1903: Yeah thats alright, we don't mind
27 Sep 18 UTC Spring, 1903: I'm ready to unpause if everyone else is. Thanks for the patience.
28 Sep 18 UTC Spring, 1903: I'm set to unpause. Some of you need to check messages though
28 Sep 18 UTC Spring, 1903: Can everyone unpause please
28 Sep 18 UTC Spring, 1903: This always happens when people want to pause diplomacy games :/ Someone always forgets about it and doesn't hit unpause
01 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: Wait so what country was banned? Like initially?
01 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: oh we're back? cool
01 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: and it was Germany
06 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1904: GG New Germany, thanks for taking over!
07 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1904: GG, see y’all later.
10 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1905: GG, all.
10 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1905: gg england and italy, you both played well
10 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1905: GG, thanks for playing!
10 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1905: Indeed. You may not have made it to the end but you both fought valiantly
11 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1906: Alright France, I want peace between our empires, all three of our empires. My and Austria's actions this previous year were in response to your conspiring against both of us behind the other's back. You talked to me about attacking Austria and you talked to Austria about attacking me. That's enough justification for war. We're both willing to end this right here with no bloodshed if you're willing to cooperate, France.

RUSSIAN DEMANDS: Demilitarization of the North Sea, Norwegian Sea, Piedmont, North Africa, Bohemia, Silesia, and continued demilitarization of Galicia. The French fleet in Clyde will pull back to Liverpool, the Russian fleet in North Sea will pull back to Norway, the Austrian army in Piedmont will pull back to Tuscany. This way we can prevent any supported attacks onto contentious support centers, the count of which is going to stay the same for the three of us (aside from the ones gained from Turkey).

The goal is de-escalation and peace. Terms can be workshopped.
11 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1906: Messaging both of you about attacking one another was borne out of paranoia that one of you would try to solo and a desire to strike first before you tried that. It has been a good strategy in the past, but clearly it was ill conceived in this instance. I'm happy with a draw.

Regarding the demands: I'm unsure why the fleet in Clyde is seen as a threat, especially since it only serves as extra protection for me and doesn't border your centers. I was originally going to move it to the Norwegian Sea because I thought you wanted to attack me, but I'm willing to not do that.

Building the fleet in Sevastopol as agreed upon bolsters my trust, but I must admit that I'm still slightly wary.

Can we add Tyrolia to the DMZ?

I think at this point it's safe for both of you to assume that I won't be attacking given that I obviously can't take both of you at once and that I don't gain anything from preventing you from eliminating Turkey.
11 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1906: (sorry turkey)
11 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1906: I agree to all of what Russia has proposed but I will not remove my army at TRY. All other conditions will be met.
11 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1906: Why do you feel the need to occupy a center that borders my own? If you're worried that I'll take it to attack you then you can just bounce yourself in Tyrolia repeatedly.
11 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1906: It is not worry, it is a manner of principle. You sought to divide us. I will leave my army there and maintain my word as I always have
11 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1906: Guys, this is your last chance to surrender to the mighty Turkish empire.
11 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1906: Do you surrender?
11 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1906: Oh Ottoman empire have mercy on us!

Regarding Tyrolia, you can defend Munich with Ruhr and Burgundy, if there are three armies bordering it. If I try to use Kiel to cut Ruhr's support, that should still not be enough take Munich. The only way to budge this would be to occupy Sil and Boh, so I think this is very fair. Also, I forgot to clarify that Silesia will move to Berlin. Regarding Clyde it's a only a means to make sure you don't try to give yourself support into the Norwegian.
11 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1906: I will move it to NAO for now, in case anything funky happens I can defend myself easier.

On a related note, I am surrendering all my centers except for Paris to the Ottomans. I hope that the Sultan, in his infinite mercy, will allow me to draw with him.
11 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1906: sure, so long as Clyde spends the Spring moving somewhere other than Norwegian
12 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1906: Seems this is going well. I’ll probably park in the Mid Atlantic and wait for the game to end.

That being said, it would amuse me if the entire map were painted with the colors of the victors, so if we could A: make sure Armenia and Syria are purple/red and B: allow me to move into Nortth Africa right before Turkey is eliminated that’d be neat.
12 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1906: You can use western med to move to North Africa. I do not want MAO moving there
12 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1906: Great work everybody! If you want to move into North Africa you can go ahead, France, the map would look nicer. This is why I moved into Prussia lol
12 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1906: I'll wait until Turkey's almost dead to move to North Africa
12 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1906: Turkey will never die!
Surrender now, while you still have the chance.
12 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1906: Watch Turkey somehow weasel themselves into a strong position
12 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1906: The ottomans are gonna pull some order-66-style coup in each of our countries and create the greatest empire since the romans
14 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1907: You can take all three Turkish centers next year so I’ll occupy North Africa
14 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: gg everybody, especially you Turkey, thank you for fighting till the very end. you almost had us
14 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: Good Game! Had fun y'all let's have a reunion sometime
14 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: I could take it if I wanted to, but I decided to have mercy on you
14 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: note: dont draw until turkey retreats
14 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: thank you for your kindness Sultan
