14 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1901: Hello everyone. Have fun and good luck!

This is my first full press game on the site for a while, gonna try to simultaneously try not to get sucked into the vortex of this addictive website while still communicating clearly and often. Lord help me.
14 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1901: Well, good luck everyone, and lets get sucked into the vortex together ;)
14 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1901: Greetings all. This is my second game on this site and I'm rather sure that I'm already in the vortex.
21 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1901: Announcement from German High Command.

In an act of unmitigated evil, France has attempted to invade German territory.

In the face of this naked aggression, Germany has had no choice but to declare war on France in order to defend German sovereignty and the freedom of the German people.

All freedom loving nations are invited to join Germany in punishing France as a belligerent aggressor unfit to sit at the table of civilized nations.
21 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1901: If I may interject. The Honerable French Army performed a controlled military drill on the border that it shares with Getmany. This drill was conducted to keep our troups in good fighting order as we had recieved multiple different intelligence reports stating that Germany was making plans to invade our poor country.

It is our duty and right... no duty to protect ourselves from invasion through any forms necessary. I call upon the good people of the world to not believe the spin these German agressors are placing on the actions of the previous year and to rise up against them in their campaign of world dominance.

Free people of the world unite!
21 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1901: [That was hard to do from a smart phone so please forgive any typos.]
21 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1901: The English people pray with fervour hoping that peace returns to the continent. Surely we call all live together in harmony.
21 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1901: These enhanced tensions also concern the Turkish people. Surely we can find harmony.
26 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1902: Well that was rather uneventful in the Germany vs France front. Maybe this season?
30 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1902: And the secret weapon is revealed! Russia for the win!
01 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1903: Vortex of time consumption confirmed. This is my third time checking in today. I may need an intervention.
03 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1903: Hey, sorry I haven't been communicated much lately, at the F2F tournament in Vermont, you should all go if you can! In 2020 it will be the World Diplomacy Championship (the world championship is a title that gets bestowed on a tournament each year rather than being it's own thing).
03 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1903: Still waiting for Autumn. Only 3.5 more hours.
06 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1903: Did Germany ditch us?
08 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: I think he got mad.
09 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: Well he doesnt
09 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: Have that much longer to be mad.
09 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: [Cat pawed send on phone mid message...]
10 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: Oh my gosh kitty cat tell me all about it
22 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1904: For Americans: Happy cook a turkey day!
For everyone else: Happy watch Americans gorge themselves day.
22 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1904: For Americans: Happy cook a turkey day!
For everyone else: Happy watch Americans gorge themselves day.
12 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1906: I've been talking to everyone individually about a draw but since everyone seems to want that, let's move this conversation to the global chat. Does anyone want special conditions for this draw?
14 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1906: I'm on board for a draw :-)
20 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: Goodbye cruel world....
20 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: I suppose this game was pretty much over as soon as Germany went down so fast. Ah, well.
25 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: Happy Decemberween! [I'm showing my age AND nerdyness with that one...]
25 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: well happy Yuletide everyone
25 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: France can you cast your draw vote in 24 hours, once the retreat phase is over? It will end the game. Also merry Christmas to all!
26 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: You got it.
27 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: So do we have to wait 3 days for the draw to be official?
27 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: Austria is still part of the draw for as long as he has a unit on the board.
27 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: I'll re-cast my draw vote in 3 days.
