22 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1901: I bring a message from the venerable Edward VII, king of England. By command of His Most Merciful Majesty, your nations are to be spared. Second-rate nations you were and second-rate nations you remain. But the terrible penalty of annexation has been set aside on the single condition that you identify the body or the living person of the cur called Emperor Declan.
22 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1901: Dear Worshipful Ruler of the Waves
I too would like to know the answer to that question. We cannot know his name but afore long we will be able to smell his carrion stink, from his betrayal of those he ‘befriends’.
22 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1901: It can be narrowed down. It is not England, Italy or Austria. Who is it do you think?
23 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1901: Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more;
Or close the wall up with our English dead.
In peace there's nothing so becomes a man
As modest stillness and humility:
But when the blast of war blows in our ears,
Then imitate the action of the tiger;
Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood,
Disguise fair nature with hard-favour'd rage;
Then lend the eye a terrible aspect;
Let pry through the portage of the head
Like the brass cannon; let the brow o'erwhelm it
As fearfully as doth a galled rock
O'erhang and jutty his confounded base,
Swill'd with the wild and wasteful ocean.
Now set the teeth and stretch the nostril wide,
Hold hard the breath and bend up every spirit
To his full height. On, on, you noblest English.
Whose blood is fet from fathers of war-proof!
Fathers that, like so many Alexanders,
Have in these parts from morn till even fought
And sheathed their swords for lack of argument:
Dishonour not your mothers; now attest
That those whom you call'd fathers did beget you.
Be copy now to men of grosser blood,
And teach them how to war. And you, good yeoman,
Whose limbs were made in England, show us here
The mettle of your pasture; let us swear
That you are worth your breeding; which I doubt not;
For there is none of you so mean and base,
That hath not noble lustre in your eyes.
I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips,
Straining upon the start. The game's afoot:
Follow your spirit, and upon this charge
Cry 'Death to the Dread Emperor Declan!'
26 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1901: Declan is behaving true to form. After guaranteeing he wld withdraw and not attack me he launched an underhanded attack and stole my homeland. The treacherous cur cannot be trusted.
26 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1901: Must have put my orders in wrong sorry
08 Dec 20 UTC Spring, 1904: Let the record state that the innocent people of Turkey acted in good faith and were violently molested at every opportunity.

12 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1909: Hi Russia, England and Germany,
I'm still looking at a map that hasn't progressed past last round's moves. It's saying at least one person needs to adjust their country's units before the game progresses.
Are you seeing the same thing?
