06 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1901: Hey all. I am alive. I'm not sure what took place there. I submitted my moves far before the deadline... something must have glitched. Maybe something concerning England? Anyway, I look forward to a good game

07 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1901: wow it looks like austria nailed it with that prediction about turkey
07 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1901: All Italian immediate attacks on Austria lead to Turkey having a good game because then he isn't squeezed into Constantinople.

26 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1906: The Glorious Sultan of Ottoman Empire has been imprisoned and the Sultanate was taken over by a band of up-to-no-good Saracens that seek to conquer the World and enslave young men and women!

They have successfully infiltrated the forts of the once mighty Archduke and the rich lands of Italian bourgeois. However they failed in their attempt to secure the northern barren lands of assassinated Tsar, now in the hands of the English King.

The most Glorious Sultan has been prepared for the eventuality of a coup d’état and has ordered his diplomats to secure a peaceful resolution in the case of such criminal undertaking.
Diplomats will arrive to the guild of European Grandees in the winter of this year.
If Europe is still standing on its feet after the fall, they will sign the treaty of peace, nullifying all evil that has been done by the nasty Saracens.

Sultan is a benevolent ruler, and advocates peace for all remaining powers of Europe, blessed be the providence of the Western powers that has thwarted the Saracen invasion.
26 Feb 20 UTC Turkey mastermind was great and we were puppets.
26 Feb 20 UTC Kudos for your Suicide Squad, great Sultan, alas you should take responsibility for the carnage you have caused by your gluttony....you may blame Saracen phantoms, but we are all well aware of your gambling debts and poor taste in women,which led to your financial and moral bankruptcy,forcing you to go on this crusade. Some may forgive you, some may look away, some may come to terms with it, but none shall ever forget the lives lost in Tunis,Trieste and Vienna, the screams of mothers watching their sons being decapitated, the desecration of churches and drawing of mustaches on all the paintings in the royal gallery.

My opinion is that you should be flayed alive,roasted and served at your sons wedding, but since the fate of a continent is at stake i will accept your offer of peace.
26 Feb 20 UTC that^
26 Feb 20 UTC Let us not forget the year of 1905 when the French heretics plundered and raped in the provinces of Kiel and Berlin, the once proud lands of German Kaiser, but at that point holdings of the decadent English King.

There are no mothers screaming in Tunis, no lives lost in Trieste, and no desecration in Vienna.
My people are good willed, and they are well cultured; they bring only knowledge and wisdom with them.

We shall thrive as a united tribe, as the Turkish souls greet their brethren in Austria and Italy with open heart.
No man can ever say that about the vile western snakes that have devoured the wholesome Germany.

Still, I will courteously answer to the French emissary who brings me this letter, as he is eloquent, brave, and above all a formidable force.
The Anglo Saxon that has entered my palace will never come home again, as we don't appreciate illiterate diplomats in the court of the Ottoman Empire.
We expect diplomats that make a formal appointment with the Sublime Porte to speak their mind, not to meekly point out the words of their superiors like some kind of vassals.

I hereby declare the Holy Eastern Protectorate, which bounds my people to zealously defend the borders of my dear neighbors, who were deemed as targets for western snakes.

Warsaw will be defended with all possible means, Vienna shall be vacated as the Grand Ball is now finished, and the Archduke wants to be left alone.
My contingent in Apullia will help guide the Pope back to safety in his so-called City of God.
Trieste will be appropriated due to a large population of Muslims, so shall it be with Tunis! The Neapolitan people always despised their rulers and so we shall make them a part of our great nation.
The Venetian overlords shall never be attacked as they hold vast riches that benefit the entire continent.

Munich is a Teutonic land, land of proud working men and voluptuous women, not a land of perfumed aristocrats and deceitful pragmatists. Therefore I believe that the Bavarian province is much better served by the rule of Archduke, the cousin of exiled Kaiser, than it is by z french occupation.

This is my proposition of peace to agree upon in the winter of this year.
26 Feb 20 UTC k
26 Feb 20 UTC Your proposal radiates the new found sense of guilty conscience,it is evident that your prolonged stay in Italian peninsula has affected you.
Your declaration of love and acceptance is nothing but a bleat of a frightened old man seeking absolution for a life full of poor decisions and betrayal .
However, your questionable motivation, does not belittle the truth in the words you so desperately utter. If you seek peace, and demand that honorable Archduke lives out his days in Bavaria, i may be inclined to honor that. It is not in my nature to seek destruction of my rivals, but rather install harmony and prosperity for all in my vicinity.
Albeit i must stress out as well that we live in hard times, the grain is short, water is scarce, and hospitals are overpopulated.One must sometimes make hard choices and sacrifices to ensure sustainability,and since you are held responsible for this hardship, it is up to you to decided which of your vassal states will be sacrificed to the old Gods.
26 Feb 20 UTC A frightened old man could never choose a vassal to be hanged from the gallows.
Maybe a young arrogant aristocrat like yourself would care to be the devil's advocate?
I see no reason to cut heads and to further soil the lands of this beautiful continent with blood and bowel content released upon death.
27 Feb 20 UTC Good game to all players!
27 Feb 20 UTC GG, not thrilled to draw in the spring but the context dictates the endgame.
