Game drawn
07 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 2: By the way, Greece, in case you were wondering, I am planning on making a supported move into Crete.
07 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 2: I'm here but I agree with a draw.
07 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 2: Greetings! I am the new Persia
07 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 2: Don't believe him, Greece.
He's going for Cyprus.
07 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 2: Hey Carthage, I really think both of us could spend our time more constructively on something other than attacking each other, don't you?
07 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 2: I like how you bring it up once all your bases are about to be belonging to him.
07 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 3: Greece! I told you. oh well you did whats right for you. Egypt's busy anyways.
How would you like to be friends?
07 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 3: Egypt you can easily expel him from your land.
With his one army among many fleets, he will have trouble keeping you out of Sahara.
I heard the Saharan women are lovely...
07 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 3: Egypt I am willing to make peace with you and retreat my army in bayuda from your lands as long as you promise not to take Caesar's advice.
07 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 3: But think of the women!
You can trust Caesar, he has cool hair and salad.
08 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 3: Carthage, if you retreat out of Bayuda and stay clear of Marmarica, then we can talk.
08 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 3: Also please stay out of the Gulf of Sytris and the Libyan Sea. If you retreat and don't make any threatening moves at the same time, then we can discuss a collaboration.
08 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 3: That's a lot of demands.
Will great Hannibal subject himself to the humiliation of retreat?

Why talk? Sahara is too tempting for talk.
I hear they have nice sand.
08 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 3: Hail Ceasar! Not only is your hair cool and your salad crisp and tangy, but you also have palaces in both Rome and Vegas. What more could one ask for in a military mind? I suspect you are right about that sand and those Saharan women, but even more than that, I suspect Carthage of being a rat-bastard of the lowest order. Offer of retreat, my poop hole!

I think together we can easily take him out. If you can keep him out of Sardinia this turn, and perhaps take Saguntum or Baleares, which are rightfully yours anyway, we can then contain his so-called military might this Autumn, and march victoriously into his squishy, underdefended territories in the Spring.
08 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 3: All these comings and goings are pretty weird, with Persia apparently AWOL again. So if you guys still want to vote this game a draw, I'm cool with that. Of course, if Carthage votes for a draw, we will all know it is just because he is quaking in his boots at the thought of being attacked by Egypt and Rome.
08 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 3: Thank you for your wise commendation of my Vegas palaces!
You are both noble and wise, Pharoah.
Your plan sounds perfectly reasonable and I intend to follow it to the letter!
Onward to victory!
08 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 3: My Persian and Greek friends, we must unite at once if we want to have any chance of of fending off the aggressive Caesar and Pharaoh...are you with me?
09 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 3: Dear Carthage and Greece! We must at once join forces!
09 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 3: Alexander the Great, don't side with Hannibal and Xerxes.
They are swine and must be taught a lesson!
The Macedonian empire is calling you. Fulfill your destiny! Persia is ripe!
09 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 4: Indeed, Greece, Persia is ripe for the plucking. Perhaps you and I could stop fighting each other and carve the place up. Surely that is more constructive than fighting each other, right?
09 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 4: Seriously Greece, all you have to do is move that Dacia army into Chersonesus, the Macedonia army into Dacia, and then in the fall move the Chersonesus army to Sinope, and the Dacia army to Chersonesus, and you will pick up 2 new units and there is nothing anyone can do to stop you. Meanwhile you stop attacking Crete, and I get out of the Aegean so that we don't threaten each other any more on the home front, and both of us push eastward with our fleets. There is no way Persia can overpower us. Let me know if you want to do this or not. If I don't hear from you, I'll assume you want to just go on futilely attacking me, and take appropriate measures.
09 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 4: Greece, I have a better deal for you. You get Chersonesus allright, and if you support my flee to the egyptian sea (from Cilician sea), i'll get you Crete, and you'll be safe from Egypt. You should remember that you cannot trust Egypt, which has put a fleet right in the center of your lands, and is allied with Rome!
09 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 4: Hey Greece, do you want to ally with someone who is capable of putting a fleet in the center of your lands, or a player losing a battle for control of his own home turf? Its not a hard choice really - I can bring you 3 new supply centers in 2 game years, while my buddy Xerxes, good as he looks in purple, is all talk.

Ceasar is a great guy, by the way, who has done nothing aggressive towards you, and is unlikely to do so for the foreseeable future since he's pretty occupied with Hannibal's elephants at the moment. Xerxes, meanwhile, has once prevented you from taking Chersonesus, territory that is rightfully yours.
09 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 4: Greece don't listen to the lies of Caesar and Pharaoh, you must team up with Persia and fend off Egyptian forces while I hold off the Romans. I suggest that you and Persia decide who gets Chersonesus by the end of this turn, which I assume you already have decided lol and to take control of the eastern seas... Good luck!!!
09 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 4: Greece - are you really going to listen to a double-crossing scoundrel like Hannibal, who offered to retreat from my lands, and instead moved into an even more threatening position than he had previously held?
09 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 4: R u serious... I tried to move into phazania and u deceitfully moved there as well so who is the backstabber? I was attempting to retreat all along.
09 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 4: Only after your initial so-called "retreat" from Bayuda to Marmarica, which put you in a more threatening position than you had been in in Bayuda, and was also something I'd expressly asked you not to do if you wanted peace.
09 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 4: I was honestly perfectly happy to deal honestly with you until you made that move after promising a real retreat. That was the thing that convinced me that you were a backstabbing rat bastard.
09 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 4: Dude u obviously have some problems, calm down it's a damn game and I don't regret any moves that I've made because you now don't seem like the loyal or sane type...
09 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 4: Awww breaking the fourth wall. Not cool dude.
Rule of thumb: Don't ally with those who do not take the game seriously.
This is the internet, this is Serious Business.
09 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 4: Arguing over Internet is like Special Olympics, even if you win you're still a tard.
09 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 4: This next turn will determine the future of this game, Persia u need to take tyre by using the Syrian sea to cut any support from jerusalem. And moving arabia into tyre with Support from Sidon. Also use the fleet in cilician sea to attack the Egyptian sea so Greece can take Crete.
09 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 4: Do u agree with these moves follow Persians and Greeks?
10 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 4: Y
10 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 4: Caesar says "trololo."
11 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 4: Carthage, you'd have more fun if you cultivated the fine art of trash talk. Let's try it:
Pharoh: You sir, are a rat bastard.
Now you say something more extreme about me.
11 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 4: Caesar, what are you doing? You had a really advantagious position and you squandered it away to the rat bastard.
11 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 4: I prefer the more classy and sly route instead of the douchebag act that you're doing an excellent job of displaying right now. Well done Pharaoh :)
11 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 4: But if that's your memo then go right ahead I can't stop you... pathetic words mean nothing to me XD
11 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 4: I simply don't have the Fleet power, Pharoah.
No worries.
Things are looking up.
11 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 5: So what r your plans Persia and Greece?
11 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 5: Doucebag method = way more fun
11 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 5: I, Caeser, am leaving in the morning to take over Alaska by means of a cruise.
I really wanted to see how this war with Hannibal would play out but we all know that in the end the Romans will be the victor.
If you decide to pause/cancel/draw, I have voted for all three.
If you decide to keep on playing, so be it. It's only 10 points.
11 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 5: I don't really think it makes sense to continue this game with Rome leaving for good. You guys want to cancel or draw?
11 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 5: Until such time as we end the game, can we agree, Greece, that you take Damascus and I take Antioch?
11 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 5: Sure
11 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 5: Yea I'm up for a draw if that's ok with everyone?
11 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 5: Greece, Egypt, not so fast! You want a piece of me? Come get me!
12 Jun 11 UTC Greece, please vote to draw. Thanks.
12 Jun 11 UTC It is OK with everyone Carthage, so you want to vote again to Draw?
