Game drawn
15 Apr 10 UTC Spring, 1901: Good Hunting
16 Apr 10 UTC Autumn, 1901: OK, Austria and France both MIA. Is this really the type of game we want? After this turn, how about a draw and split their points and try again? (like points matter in a 35 pt game)
17 Apr 10 UTC Autumn, 1901: ok
17 Apr 10 UTC Autumn, 1901: DRAW now?
17 Apr 10 UTC Autumn, 1901: While its true that two people are gone, I don't see why the whole game should end.
17 Apr 10 UTC Autumn, 1901: Suit yourself, but with Italy/Russia/Turkey dividing up Austria while Germany gets most of France and the low countries, this will be a very unbalanced game.
17 Apr 10 UTC Autumn, 1901: Perhaps. But think of it as giving the game a certain, ahhh, flavor.
17 Apr 10 UTC Autumn, 1901: England, you could also go after France...
03 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1906: Italy, did you just deliberately throw that turn?
04 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1906: No. I didn't realize that I hadn't entered my moves. I thought I had, in fact. Can we have a do-over?
12 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: For the record, the Pope sanctions any war against Germany, and condems the capturing of Rome and by extension, the Vatican. Perhaps Germany would like to give it back?
12 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: I am not positive the current Holy Roman Emperor will walk through the snow to bow down in from of the Pope. But you can hope.
12 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: The Emperor of Germany and King of Prussia would remind all parties that the German Reich is a secular nation, with tolerance of all religions enshrined in our recently renewed constitution. He also wishes to clarify that the private property of the Vatican, in recognition of its cultural and spiritual significance to the millions of German Catholics across Europe, has *not* been annexed to the Reich, and promises to uphold its independence as long as no material aid is provided to the ousted Sardinian monarchy.
12 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: Propaganda! A secular Monarch?! Laughable. The Pope informs me that rulers must be sanctioned by God, and that the German ruler is a usurper! Hell awaits those that disobey the Word of God. Or so the Pope tells me.
12 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: The Emperor reminds the King of Naples that it is our state that is secular and not our person, and that your impugning of our piety is neither decorous nor dipl
12 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: ....omatic.
12 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: The Emperor invites the King of England and the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire to a Conference to bring and end to this bloody and pointless war, to be held on the neutral island of Sardinia.
12 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: If I can't invade it, why would I want to go there?
12 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: Gorram it, s/and/an
12 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: Precisely. None of us can land a force on the island, yet all of us have safe territory close to it.
12 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: Interesting concept, much like giving to the poor. I don't like the way that sounds. No sir, not the sound of it at all.
12 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: I am simply repeating the messages that the Pope passed on. I wouldn't dare do it personally at this point. Let's not re-enact Achilles and the messenger, shall we?
12 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: As long as I am not the messenger, I don't mind.
12 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: How very English of you.
12 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: And how very Romanesque. I will have you know, sir, that though we may have our differences, I will not tolerate the abuse of my noble cousin in England. Our countries share links dynastic, cultural, and linguistic, hence the great pain caused to our royal person and the German people by this sudden conflict.
12 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: Certainly you have many connections to the English, but considering I stem directly from the father's of civilization there, as well as large portions of what is now German territory, I have claims to language and culture as ties. Also, I was not abusing or insulting them in any way. In fact, I appreciate the English humor.
12 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: What humor?
12 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: A very good question, my good sir, to ask yourself.
12 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: Anybody who claims ties with the English tongue would surely not abuse its grammar so. Are you a greengrocer, to use an apostrophe to denote a plural?
12 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: Haha, my apologies. That is a very embarassing mistake. I generally take pride in my English language. I imagine that it is a typing mistake rather than a grammatical one. Perhaps you will take as excuse that it is very late in my part of the world.
13 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: What I am proposing is a draw now. I honestly believe that the current proportions (13/12/8/1) fairly represent how the various players have played up to this point.
13 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: Yes, and I would be happy with a draw under those conditions if the points were distributed in that proportion. But since they are not, I want some time to think. Give me a couple of hours.
14 May 10 UTC Ok, I will agree.
14 May 10 UTC Come on, Turkey. Join us in a draw.
14 May 10 UTC Good game all.
14 May 10 UTC A very good game, yes.
14 May 10 UTC Thank you to all of you who decided that it was worth it to let me draw, instead of wiping me off of the map. I probably would have been less merciful. For the record, you guys can't see it, but I conquered all of Africa. That's where I was when I missed a turn.
