29 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: Wait a second- enslave Europe? I briefly took Bulgaria, then lost it and was forced to beg the rest of the European nations in order to stay alive. I essentially role played the Ottomans perfectly. Except I didn't even get a chance to take part in a world war
29 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: I'm mixing historical metaphors into the tirade. You've been remarkably ottoman, it's true. :)

31 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: ((((/o_o)/
02 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1906: How is England still around?
02 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1906: How is England still around?
02 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1906: We told the Scots that there were fried Mars bars in St. Pete.
You see the result.
02 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1906: This is what happens when you live in a place with abnormal duration of sunlight/darkness. Alaska, looking at you too... *point*
02 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1906: To be fair, I did offer Dakoit chicken nuggets....
02 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1906: Well, at least they weren't Haggis nuggets.
03 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: I like the way France bounced France out of Spain.
03 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: I believe... we can call that a "ReFrain"
04 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: Yeah, you know, I got skillz yo. ;-)
04 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: For the record, I do apologize for being so long on putting my moves in. I have to relegate myself to certain hours of the day that I can spend looking at the board or else I would not get anything else done
04 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1907: That's cool, just glad we had enough to play the map.
05 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1907: I just want to make it clear - I have, in fact, been an idiot with my moves these last two turns. There is no grand plan with this puzzling series of orders I've put it. Just me being stupid.
05 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: I'm voting for Draw at this point. We're getting to the point of the game where everyone is getting 3 different stories from everyone else. I'm fed up.
06 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Yeah, I'm actually ok with a draw too, consider I don't really have the time or energy to really devote to playing the game.
06 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Well, I'll draw once Russia's dead. Alllmost got me there.
06 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: A team of German Scientists recently revealed that Russians are descended from cockroaches. In other news, we know that Italy was conspiring the entire time and the council of honest nations has voted Italy off of the metaphorical island.
Until France casts the final vote in favor of a draw, anyhow.
06 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1908: I'll admit my sins. I offered you (Germany) up as a logical target, but also as one option out of two - the other being a draw. I've been nothing but honest and open with France and Austria. Wish I could say the same thing about them...
06 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1908: Everyone sure was honest about offering up everyone else...
06 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1908: France want to spill some honesty beans too :D
06 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1908: I was the most honest bean, but all it did was ruin my borscht. :(
07 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1908: I was going to post a long message, but then i thought, "I'll just hit ready, and we'll see".
07 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1908: To elucidate everyone on what is going on from my end, people asked for a 4 way draw. I said I wanted to play it out a bit more, which raised the question of who the odd man out would be. Austria was relatively safe, considering I'm not able to help in that conquest, and it seems as though Austria has made the most of that position by oddly sharing messages with Italy. I can't really say why - maybe to turn the tables on me? Kind of confused about that one.
07 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1908: Anyways, the question came down to Germany or Italy. I refuse to attack Germany because he has been a faithful friend and, lets be honest, it's not a smart attack when I'm pretty sure I can't trust Italy, and positive now that I can't trust Austria. So why attack the one person that has acted faithfully?
07 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1908: Which leaves Italy. While Italy has not been aggressive towards me, he also rode the fence a bit too long in my crusade against Russia. I can't really blame him, given that the conquest of Turkey wasn't finished yet, but the fact remains I heard stories from all corners of his faithlessness.
07 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1908: And then there's the fact that it's a relatively natural strategic move for me to make.
07 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1908: So here we are. Italy, if you can hold out a few turns, I will very likely get tired of this all and just hit draw. But for now, this is the state of affairs from Paris.
07 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1908: This is about the origin of croissants again isn't it?
07 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1908: The strategic argument is the only good one you made.
07 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: Just use that one. All the other statements are just silly. Wasn't it Germany who attacked you earlier in the game; whereas I have not.
07 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: In the end this is a classic case of cognitive dissonance. ;p
07 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: Germany was lied to by Russia and then returned French provinces.
Do not attempt to sow discord in the fields of Franco-German prosperity.
All the world will eat pumpernickel pain au chocolat for breakfast!
07 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: Note: For the purposes of this allegory, I am considering Austria to be Germanic.
07 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: Hahaha! Thanks for the clarification. Don't worry everyone, I'm going of a samurai death.
07 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: Yeah, you didn't backstab me, I won't argue there. I just didn't feel as comfortable with you as an ally as I did Germany at this stage. Strategy played a part, but the overall tenor of conversation was important too.
08 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: I mean, I know I'm dead and all... but I never lied to Germany. Just wanna throw that out there for the record. When this game is dead and done, I'm happy to provide documented evidence. I played this game straight as an arrow - I suppose my fate is the lesson learned.
08 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: Turkish refugees from the fallen empire have no sympathy for Russia
10 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1910: Poor Germany, sitting there bored. Really I guess that applies to the entire northern part of the map.
10 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1910: Night is long. Winter cold.
Potato only solace.
10 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1910: Living out my days in the Levant Riviera is so nice...
10 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: They have nice pastries out there?
10 Feb 15 UTC Gentlemen, it's been a pleasure.
10 Feb 15 UTC (And for the record, I did calculate how long/how much risk it would take for me to get to 18 SCs... and I decided it wasn't worth it)
11 Feb 15 UTC Germany is contemplating taking France down... which would let Austria get to 18 SCs...
11 Feb 15 UTC Austria is contemplating how this all will look in an exhibit in a nice museum in Prague *nod*
