19 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1: Greetings! I'd like to extend an olive branch to all my civilized neighbors, the wise Greeks, noble Egyptians, and exotic Persians.
19 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1: Dammit, I didn't want to start the game this early.
19 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1: Also, was that a snub to Carthage in that message Rome?
19 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1: I apologize for accelerating the start. We can always pause if needed.
19 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1: I would like to start by expressing my love for all things Roman. Let's jump in the bath together, my love.
19 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1: I was not aware that the Carthaginans were aware of the concentration of personal hygiene and bathing. This... this changes everything.
19 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1: Concept*. Incorrect spelling sadly takes the wind out of the sails of condescension.
19 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1: Yes, you insolent imperialist dog, we have been known to scrub-a-dub on occasion. Let's be pals so I don't have to send my elephants at you over the Alps.
19 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1: I would like Carthage to know that my westward advance will stop at Cyrene. I don't have any desire for Leptis, but I would ask that you don't keep more than one unit on our shared borders of Marmarica, Bayuda, Phazania, and Sahara.
19 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1: Greece, let's chat about Crete. Personally, I am more wary of Persia in Cyprus than your naval forces in Crete. I am willing to concede that island if it marks the edge of your southern expansion.

Persia, I'll respect your need to pick up southern SCs in Tyre and Jericho, but I'd like to make a claim on Cyprus. What say you?
19 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1: Hi everyone, and thanks for inviting me to the game. I'll post my first thoughts in a minute once I've considered the subtleties, and certain lack of subtleties, in the above diplomacy.
19 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1: Well I've read the above and perhaps there isn't too much to read into. Persia finds herself in an awkward position, she can either ally with one of Greece or Egypt, or ally with Carthage and Rome.

Egypt, thanks for offering me Jer. I won't oppose your taking of Petra. Let me think on Cyprus - it's a key position.

Greece, I'll move one army north, one boat into the ocean and one army south. Basically, I'll try to be the least threatening as is possible.

Carthage and Rome, as above.
19 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1: Stopping at Crete
Persia fair enough.
19 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1: Rome can we keep the Ionian as a DMZ? I'd like to move to Dal. and that would be the extent of my advance towards you.
20 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1: That is very generous of you, Greece, and I will find that request very easy to abide by. I wish nothing but peace and tranquility upon the Greeks.

and to Persia, since you are somewhat unsure of the world, I would like you to know that you will find no enemies in Rome.
20 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1: Thanks Rome.

Egypt, after consulting my imperial advisors, it seems we can agree over Cyprus on the condition that GoP remains a DMZ.
20 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1: Imperial advisers? Us greeks, the ones that tamed the beast inside man, and created democracy, collectively vote on issues, then we have hot boy love.
20 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1: Sorry Persia, I didn't get that GoP message until after the round advanced. I'll let you take Cyprus instead. I'll take Jericho. How does that sound?
20 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1: Carthage, it looks like you've got three SCs locked up. Remember I've only offered you peaceful borders without any sort of snide accusations about your hygiene.
20 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1: Greece, us Egyptians understand your glorious democratic way. We want to start a gold for togas trade as a show of good faith between our nations. What do you say?
