22 Apr 13 UTC Spring, 1: Hey guys! First game for me, excited to be playing!
22 Apr 13 UTC Spring, 1: Good luck, then, Greece, and welcome to diplomacy!
27 Apr 13 UTC Spring, 5: I'm rooting hard for Greece in this game, or else Rome.

Carthage is a liar, but at least he's not a total dick like Persia is. I'd MUCH rather see Carthage win than Persia...
27 Apr 13 UTC Spring, 5: Egypt, that is enough. This is, if you have not noticed a game. I lied yes, but that is part of the game, determining who is lying to you and when. As for calling Persia a dick, Persia has not shown that he is a dick to me. He was open and honest to me the entire game. What it comes down to is that you are upset because you lost.
27 Apr 13 UTC Spring, 5: I proposed an agreement, and you broke it. Quite soon, actually. I make a policy of not trusting those who have broken their trust, because they will break it again. You could have held to our first agreement, and Carthaginian armies wouldn't be occupying your home country now. Your fault, not mine.
27 Apr 13 UTC Spring, 5: Not upset that I lost. Letting some Internet game upset me would be pretty lame.

As far as "breaking my agreement" with Persia, I made one with Carthage on the first turn and stuck to it. I stuck to it for several turns despite him obviously advancing on me. OF COURSE I wish I had stuck to the agreement with Persia instead, but I was supposedly in a 3-way deal with Greece and Carthage, and you don't turn a 3-way deal down in a 5-person game.

Unfortunately, Persia was way too self-righteous to try to work together when it was clear that Carthage was my enemy, and because of that Persia will lose this game too. Even worse, he was a smug dick every time I talked to him. Thus, I am enjoying watching him lose.
27 Apr 13 UTC Spring, 5: Not smug as much as incredulous that you think I should trust you again.
27 Apr 13 UTC Spring, 5: GameMaster: ScottFree was banned: multi. The time until the next phase has been extended by one phase length to give an opportunity to replace the player.
Remember to finalize your orders if you don't want to wait, so the game isn't held up unnecessarily!
27 Apr 13 UTC Spring, 5: Have you never played Diplomacy before? People change allegiances in this game. People work with people they once fought. Self-righteousness never wins.
29 Apr 13 UTC Autumn, 6: Hey guys, so tomorrow I am flying to Europe, where I am spending the remainder of the summer. I'll be on a flight, on most likely unable to check in on our games. I'd appreciate it if we could agree to pause the game until Wednesday. Is that okay?
29 Apr 13 UTC Autumn, 6: Good with me. Y'all?
29 Apr 13 UTC Autumn, 6: Turns out there is free wifi at this airport, so I should be fine. But thanks to those of you who would have been okay with it.
01 May 13 UTC Excellent game, all.
01 May 13 UTC Good game guys! Looks like I broke even. Not bad for a first attempt, I suppose. Congrats to the winner!
06 May 13 UTC Happy to see that Persia lost. Congrats Carthage.
