20 Apr 10 UTC Autumn, 1901: Hello all.
I think I missed the first move...
20 Apr 10 UTC Autumn, 1901: hello.
20 Apr 10 UTC Autumn, 1901: Hello all I am the new England. The door is open,lets talk.
20 Apr 10 UTC Autumn, 1901: shall we all be nice and let those who missed the first turn catch up? aha.
20 Apr 10 UTC Autumn, 1901: Its like banned aircraft flights due to volcanic activity.
21 Apr 10 UTC Autumn, 1902: That's it, just plain reduce them to ashes...
22 Apr 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: dear ruler of Italy,

hello again, hows the weather in Austria? I imagine you brooding over the bleak skies that loom to the east, after a devious Spring of plenty, you have only harvested a Fall of disappointment.

My men in Serbia informs me of their galliant defense and their spirits are higher than ever. Its good to see loyalty and unison among the brave Turks on the battlegrounds. You will not achieve anything attacking my sovereignty come 1904, this is certain in the eyes of my men.

As you can also see, I've kept MY promise to YOU and built A Smy, rather than pursue an head-on fleet combat with you. (where you would have been outnumbered 4-3)

As a stauch friend of the Tsar, allies I've offered to help him with Budapest and Vienna, you can also see that the Tsar is Germany friendly. Meanwhile, all the Western Greater Powers have profited from our battle of Austria and the Balkans.

Thanks to daily calisthenics and yoga, I'm still able to prolong this profound handshake of patience just for you, if only you'ld accept it. As you are the unfufilled aggressor and pathological liar, and myself the brave and wily defender. Perhaps we can discuss clearly, your intentions for the coming year.

As a gift, please find attached with this email, the royal tiara of the Duchess of Serbia + 2 A/C , + 1 Wisdom, + 1 Intelligence, I thought you could use it.

your pertinent friend,

p.s. also.. as I mentioned you should visit my friend Dr. Sigmund Freud in Vienna. He lives just across the block from you (Berggasse 19). I'm sure the sessions would be useful, helping stressed out megalomaniacs is his forte.
22 Apr 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: Mind you , if he finds Sigmund nowadays, hoping to come across the BIG daddy of psychoanalysis, all he'll find, instead, is a mummy !
22 Apr 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: I know... when I'm a stressed out Megalomanic, I go to Holland for some fine reggae music.
22 Apr 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: wow...that was unnecessary. why do you have to involve everyone else in our affairs? obviously we have reached a disagreement, but that doesn't mean you have to tell everyone else that I'm a liar. let them make that (incorrect) judgment from their dealings with me. I must say, I'm quite appalled by this. Why cast stones?
22 Apr 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: Indeed, and they will continue to do so (judge even me.. for I did put it up). everyone here is a liar and having FUN :D . I didn't cast stones... I gave you a tiara made of the finest cut diamonds.
22 Apr 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: we'll all eventually *sic* LIE in this game, but I prefer the term Diplomacy.
22 Apr 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: and please don't act all aggrieved in public, certainly you're not so in Private.
22 Apr 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: yours sincerely,
22 Apr 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: as our Kaiser has so succinctly put.. "just plain reduce them to ashes" :D ,

so chillax to the max, Ravenking, I'm still your m8 in REAL LIFE ok?

besides pay attention to the details of the letter, especially where it concerns the game I've taken pains to write it undercover from the boss who wears a bear suit in South Park.
22 Apr 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: alas poor horatio, i knew him well.
22 Apr 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: is it me or does nobody really talk on webdip?
22 Apr 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: so a Russian, an Italian, a German and a Turk sit together in a train compartment, eyeing each other in silence as the train shuttles on.
About 8 hours through the journey, the Russian takes out from his suitcase, a small box containing the finest caviars, he hands one each out to the passengers.
22 Apr 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: and then throws the rest away out of the window of the moving train... and the rest of them were like... WHY DID YOU DO THAT?!? .. The Russian boastfully replies, we have plenty of the finest caviar in Russia.
22 Apr 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: the Italian then slids out from under his seat and offers everyone uuummmm.... *needs help here*
22 Apr 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: fascist aggression? or pasta? let's go with pasta.
22 Apr 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: tiramisu... and then proceeds to throw the rest out of the window. and the rest of them were like ... WHY DID YOU DO THAT ?!? .. The Italian smugly replies, we have plenty of the finest Tiramisu in YYYEEEtaly.
22 Apr 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: Then the German stares at the Turk for what seemed like the longest time, and then throws him out the window.
22 Apr 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: *end of bad joke
22 Apr 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: anyhooo... its been fun. see you in 1904.
24 Apr 10 UTC Autumn, 1904: The 8 hour deadline falls between the time I leave for work and the time I get home, so it is not working out for me at all. I was figuring on being off work for a while, but I got called back to work. Sorry everyone, but I might as well leave the game.
24 Apr 10 UTC Autumn, 1904: come on man, just save the moves,
24 Apr 10 UTC Spring, 1905: There is more than an 8 hour gap,thats the problem. I( leave for work at 6 am. The moves end at 6:40am. I start work at 7:00 . The next moves change at 2:40 pm. I can't get to a computer till at least 4:30, so I always miss one set of moves. I was stupid to get into a game with 8 hr deadlines, but I thought I would be laid off longer, so I would have all day.
05 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1913: Peace my friends, this was quite the enjoyably game. All the luck in the future.
