04 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 3: Greece Greece Greece
04 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 3: I'm listening.
04 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 3: What can I do to prove to you I love democracy
04 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 3: Persia, I'll support you into the Aegean, if you like. Please move your fleets along the northern coast so I can get mine into the fight.
05 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 3: Roger that
05 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 3: Slowly, Rome, but surely, your demise is inevitable. My elephants will soon be crossing the Alps and all your base will belong to me.
05 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 3: Somewhere a fiddle is playing...
07 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 4: Yep that was a stupid move.
07 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 4: #LastLegion
07 Oct 13 UTC Spring, 5: Hey egypt, mind if slide into the Ionian this time on my way to stationing a fleet in the Adriatic?
07 Oct 13 UTC Spring, 5: Egypt, Carthage has 11 SCs, and is poised to take at least another 3 at ravenna, dalmatia and vind
07 Oct 13 UTC Spring, 5: me thinks we should be wary
07 Oct 13 UTC Spring, 5: Could have been you Persia? Way to go.
07 Oct 13 UTC Spring, 5: Sounds kinda gross, but have at it!
07 Oct 13 UTC Spring, 5: Heghlu'meH QaQ jajvam!
08 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 5: Carthage - as I sign of good faith, I propose you help my unit into Dalmatia (or at least let it move in peace), while you grab Vind. Whatcha think? You are getting rather large.
08 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 5: I'm fine with that. Adriatic to Dalmatia?
08 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 5: Btw, I'm fine with you moving to Marmarica. I understand the caution. But I hope you likewise don't mind if I move to Phazania or Sahara then, likewise as a move of caution.
08 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 5: Oh, and everyone look! I own Corsica! Woohoo!
08 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 5: I've been wanting to do that since we first played this map.
08 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 5: haha, nice. Cyrene and Marmarica won't be moving any further. As long as we have the same number of units facing each other, I'm fine with whatever. Since you now had three units within reach of Cyrene, I wanted to move one more up to balance things out.

And yes, Adriatic to Dalmatia, please. :)
09 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 5: I actually can't support you in since I need Venice to support my move in Ravenna (Roma is a fleet), but I won't do anything to stop you and I don't think anyone else can either.
09 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 5: Sounds good to me - thank you.
09 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 5: Omg, Carthage, this game just brings out the worst in you.
09 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 5: death to carthage
09 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 5: egypt, i'm going to move an army into sinai, not to block you, but to provide more defense against carthage's onslaught
09 Oct 13 UTC Spring, 6: Haha. I actually did not at all intend on doing this until I looked a couple of hours before it popped and realized that if I didn't do it now, it was going to be impossible. I don't think I'll succeed unless something crazy happens, but it's a try. I seriously doubt I'll die and once we stalemate I'll draw happily. But I wanted to give it a go at least.
09 Oct 13 UTC Spring, 6: Greece, it's worth mentioning as well that I just saved your SC from being captured and didn't try to take Vind myself. I will continue on that course, should you bounce Egypt from Dalmatia this next time. I should be able to support you in to there from Venetia come autumn so you can hold it.
09 Oct 13 UTC Spring, 6: Sounds good.
11 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 6: Mm. I knew I should've gone for Crete.
12 Oct 13 UTC Spring, 7: #Spaaaaarticus
14 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 7: supporting you back into crete and the egyptian sea egypt
14 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 7: Mmm. In retrospect I should've left some fleets back. So close!
15 Oct 13 UTC Spring, 8: Ah, Persia. It's going to be close.
15 Oct 13 UTC Spring, 8: very
15 Oct 13 UTC Spring, 8: it really depends on egypt, whether he wants persia or carthage to win
15 Oct 13 UTC In the struggle between purple and blue, my heart beats red. I support the absentee claim of the Roman Empire, embodied in the steadfast Republic of Apulia, which still holds considerable territory in southern Italy.

Also, I hate Carthage for betraying and invading me.
15 Oct 13 UTC Greece would never have betrayed Egypt... just saying.
15 Oct 13 UTC Egypt, if you would be willing to move your fleet from Crete , I will raise statues and monuments in your honor
15 Oct 13 UTC I'll do that, but not this turn. You're already gaining three SCs, so we'd net lose a fleet if you took a fourth and I lost another. Next year it's yours (in exchange for said statues).
15 Oct 13 UTC I'll support Messenian into Lybian, if you like, and Aegean into Messenian. Gotta take advantage of the Carthaginian fleets moving West.
15 Oct 13 UTC #GreatCaesarsGhost
16 Oct 13 UTC ... for the record, Crete will be his 18th, after he completes his betrayal of you Egypt. Did you notice his move in to Petra and surrounding of Athens and Sparta?
16 Oct 13 UTC Hey Greece, care to support me in to Massila? I have been a true friend to you in this game, as opposed to the treacherous purple person.
16 Oct 13 UTC Yeah I'm good with that. Moving from Etruria?
16 Oct 13 UTC Egypt, I'm afraid there won't be a next year if you don't move out of crete- If I can't win this autumn, Carthage will boot me out of Massilla and win the game. It comes down to who you want to see win
16 Oct 13 UTC Yeah.
16 Oct 13 UTC Ghostly Voice: Heeeelp Peeersia....heeeelp Peeeersia...ooooo
16 Oct 13 UTC Well done Andy
16 Oct 13 UTC Yeah! I survived!
