18 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1901: I'm having deja vu.
19 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1901: sorry for taking so long. let's do this thing.
19 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1901: let's go joe
19 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1901: Yea what is up with Italy.
19 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1901: you guys live in the same house, get him to move
19 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1901: He'll move, he'll move...
19 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1901: I like to move it move it
19 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1901: what do the thick black lines mean as opposed to the thin black lines?
20 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1901: They probably refer to territory controlled by a power at the start of the game. Each colored nation is enclosed by one, and each individual neutral power also has a thick border.
20 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1901: France!
20 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1901: Happy 4th of July!
21 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1901: Is there a reason Italy didn't move?
24 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1902: Is anyone else a little scared of Russia and his manipulative tactics? Watch out for him...
25 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1902: Today, Germany comes to you, leaders of Europe, a misled and abused nation. For countless years, Germany and the monstrous state of Russia have enjoyed good relations, based not only on the words of allies, but the respect of other countries. While Russia has held her words in the most basic of definitions, she has not shown respect to us.
No, she has not pressed herself on anyone's boundaries besides the hurting Turks, and no, she has not "betrayed" actions she promised to do. But she has used my country as a bargaining chip at the expense of my good-standing.
Russia pressured me to move into Bohemia, and when she succeeded in doing so through her massive size and the fear it carries, she immediately betrayed my plans to Austria. I believed that I was doing Russia a simple service, and asked that she not betray me to Austria. Instead, she threw me under the bus by announcing my plans to Austria prior to the turn's move.
While this may seem insignificant, you must look at this not as a singular action, but instead an emerging pattern. Russia does not interact with individuals on a country to country basis, but believes instead she can play God. She arrogantly triumphs her possibility of having 8 supply centers by 1903 as reason enough for her to not tug, but rip the strings of our arms. Show this country, who has grown too large for anyone's comfort, that we are not her puppets.
25 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1902: I believe you are the only one scorned by the actions of Russia. And to what Europe countries are talking to. Are not guilty of the same sins you accuse me of? Can Germany honestly pretend to be innocent of manipulation and trickery? I will let England and France answer this question. Like all of you, I am merely trying to find my place in Europe. I do not pretend to be God, but nor I am unaware of my position. Yes I am Russia and I appear to be a very large country. But I do not wish to work by myself. I have no grudges against any nation in Europe, not even Germany.
But I would like to correct Germany in her arithmetic. If Germany is to continue her lone venture east, she will take Warsaw leaving me with 7 and giving her 6. The only country that will have 8 supply centers is Austria. Though Austria is powerful I do not fear her. However I am troubled by Germany's reckless behavior. Her attempt to frame Russia as a villain is motivated by desperation and fear. She is afraid of losing her independence. Unfortunately for her, that fear may soon become a reality
25 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1902: I have one final thing to say to Germany: Calmer than you are
26 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1902: This aggression will not stand.
26 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1902: I quote, from a Russian herald:
"...moving towards warsaw so i hope you don't blame me if i take germany. you can take warsaw, but i will still eight sc's by 1903."

Did he not mention that he will have eight supply centers? Correct me in my arithmetic? I was simply quoting the self-proclaimed ruler of our "sentient" nations...
26 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1902: A miscalculation on Russia's part I believe, he will hold only 7 SC in Spring of 1903. This places Austria in the lead with 8. Nations of Europe, I urge you to band together to combat this common foe.

27 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1903: Gentlemen,

I come to you a peace-loving man. You all know this is true, look at the map, I am the only country that remains as it was at the dawn of the century, and the only country to have kept its promises of peace. Yet, my great nation has been manipulated by the Germans left and right, and kept in fear by the French in our harbors.

I come to you not to beg. I come to you not to apologize, for I have nothing to be sorry for. Nay, I come to you with dignity and my head held high. The United Kingdom will remain a peace loving country for as long as it stands. I only hope that the great powers and unrest rising within these magnificent lands let my island be. Turn your efforts elsewhere (Austria) and the more time my great nation will have to invent James Bond and cool looking taxi-cabs.

29 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1904: Gentlepeople,
