27 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: It was in the Autumn of 1901 was when war suddenly broke out between the power struggle known as Europe. In mere days, multiple nations in the continent suddenly declared war on their lesser nations, and during the chaos, on each other. England, seeing an exposed province took initiative and invaded Norway, seizing the oil fields. France used the sudden chaos of their surrounding nations to invaded the Spanish Peninsula, while Italy made a grab a Tunis. This grab alone was without fruit as the nearby nation of Austria took advantage of the situation and moved troops in Hungary. In the center, Germany was left in a position of little decision, leaving them to quickly grab the formerly free nations of Belgium, while suffering a blow from Russia. With ever increasing troops on the Russo-Germ border, it is bound to be a bloody conflict. Meanwhile, Russia is diverting its power in two fronts, where in the Gulf of Bothnia, there northern fleet and been invading the lands of Sweden, while their southern fleet made a push against Romania, although failing. In the far corner, the lone nation of Turkey is making vast gains in Greece and Bulgaria, obtaining important, powerful nodes that will definitely benefit their war machine. This outbreak of sudden war will only continue to expand. Tune in tomorrow for further news.
27 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: Wow.
27 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1902: If you Support Hold, does that make the unit that is supporting not count for defense in the territory it is in?
27 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1902: Interesting theory. I look forward to you testing it.
27 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1902: Support hold still has the unit defend its own territory. I just cancels the support and treats the defending unit as a hold.
27 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Yo Italy say "Smoop smoop" in the #other games chat to see who the schmuck are you

27 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: The year has passed since our last report and as of now, the year being 1902, the machine of war has been steering ever far forward. The sudden outbreak of relentless war has only brought death to those on the teetering side on these conflicts. Let us see these many conflicts in the nations harmed the worst. As you can see in the political map, Russia is in very dire straights at the moment. Facing off against a front with Germany, their fleets in the Scandinavian region were completely useless as the British corps just went around the Finnish wastes into St. Petersburg. With Russian control over Sweden and Finland slowly being cut off, their existence as a whole is in danger. Only Czar himself can save the nation. As with this invasion, it is all but apparent that the entire British force has been focused on the Scandinavian region. With a decisive pincer move into St. Petersburg, it has left both Sweden and Finland up for the grabs for the coming future if Russia can't find a way out of this. As of England's totally neutral "Ally", France, is making gains and is closing off the Mediterranean. With German troops backing from the Franco-Germ border, it has left France in a key position of completely taking over what is left of Spain and Portugal. With both of these key industrial nations under their control, it is in no doubt that the French War Machine will expand to further and farther barriers. Going just south of the truly neutral country of Switzerland, Italy is defending for their life against the Austrian offensive. After the loss of Venice right behind their key forces, their minor gain in Tunis was nothing in comparison to what they lost. Focusing what is left against the armies on their borders, first the fleet of Austria and now the encroaching French battalions, they are left in little choice of both alliances and now even action. As with Austria, the peace with Germany is saving both themselves and Germany, as the surrounding nations around them are invading both their lands. What is probably is most terrifying to the nations in Central-East Europe is the exponentially growing armies of Turkey. With an unfaltering morale among the troops and the swathes of land be collected into the fold, hundreds of thousands of Turkish and other ethnic civilians are taking up arms in the expansive conquest up to Austria. If Austria doesn't take the threat seriously, they will soon be steamrolled by men with the fez hats, maybe even wearing some fez hats at it too. News on the German side of things remain unchanged, as conflict with Russia resulted in no lands changed and no Sea tiles switched. We will be back next year with further news, as talks have been reported by Russia with surrounding nations as the Czar himself have been openly insulting the English nation. Stay safe, hug your families, and god save the queen.
27 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: But we are nice England :<
27 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: FUCK ENGLAND
29 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: Issue #3 is in development. Please stand by for release.
29 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: The year is 1903 of our 3rd Autumn release and this would be considered the last release of our traditional newspaper. With the war fronts being drawn and men lining up for battle, this would be our last traditional news post until we will have to drastically change the sources of our information. Until the artillery begin firing and the blockades finally set in stone this coming Christmas, we will send you all our final message of unfiltered information on the events of the War to End all Wars. Let us start off with the worst of the conflicts first. The conflict between that of England and Russia has spread to the point of disastrous levels. With a single flotilla to aid that of the entire English army in the Finnish and Russian lands, the fighting has been cruel to both forces. Stuck in the Scandinavian seas, surrounded by territory occupied by the enemy, the Russian Armada was forced to split into two, with one half rushing to the aid of the Russian first corps as to expel the newly occupied St. Peters-burg while the second half attempts a distraction maneuver against the rest of the invading force. It was going well for the Russians but the direction of attack led the English troops no choice but to retreat down into the very heartlands of Russia itself, Moscow. With supply lines cut off, rough reports of what could be pillaging and looting of towns as the retreating English army begin to form until the occupation of Moscow itself started. As the winter occurred, entire farmlands ended up destroyed in the crossfire between the two forces. The conflict wasn't between the two nations alone as the English navy in the North Sea performed a psuedo-blockade of Denmark to box the German fleet to prevent any interferences. Meanwhile the German war-machine is at full throttle as troops on the eastern front reclaim the lost Prussian lands lost at the beginning of the war while the MULTI-MILLION man army begins moving on the french and coastal borders. One can only assume what this would imply. Alongside this, the French have been taking a more neutral position when it comes to world politics. While they are maintaining their naval conflicts with Italy over the African lands that of Tunisia, what remains of the original Spanish Peninsula force begins to return to France, possibly for an upcoming German offensive. Italy itself is in no good position, while it did held of the French fleets from entering the Mediterranean, a French army managed to land in Africa, allowing that army to creep up along the coast, reaching Tunis. Back at home, the Austrians have pulled out of Venice in preparation of the massive Turkish army lining themselves along the Austrian-Turkish border, leaving the Italians to reclaim Venice once and for all. As with Turkey, morale is high, volunteer numbers are skyrocketing, and the successes keep piling on, giving the nation the momentum it needs for the push against Austria.With the disbandment of the Sevastopol Russian fleet, there is nothing in the way preventing Turkey a total full-out assault on the Austrian kingdom. That is the rest of our report on the Great War as our on-field reporters have not choice but to return home to escape the upcoming conflicts. We will do everything in our power to keep you all informed but the world is entering a dark place. Once again, stay safe, hug your families, and god save the queen.
29 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: *As of now all future news reports will only take in the information of current events from the nations themselves.The only way for news to now be reported is for you to contact you local English embassy and give your reports on local events. This is to prevent me from creating content solely from the perspective of England and also to not create ideas from lack of content. (>0-0)>.*
29 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: so Pm you in discord.
29 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: Or just release your own publications...
Introducing Die Chronik, to be published over seas and land, starting Spring of 1904
29 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: Also, I appreciate that France is considered "politically neutral" and I am the "German Warmachine," while I have done less combat than France
29 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: Well it's obvious this is from the prospective of the English nation and myself so it's hard to be truly neutral in its development.
01 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: Introducing Die Chronik, only half a year late!
Autumn, 1904. This is the the War to End All Wars; the Great War. With the Austrian-Turkish front collapsing as Turkey slowly but surely takes the Austrian lands, and Italy taking the western lands, Austria's days are numbered. Although seemingly safe from the north, that is the only direction they can turn to, their German allies having seemingly ignored their border. Not only the Austrian border, but also the French border, as a blockade to Russia takes up the majority of their forces. However, this seems unnecessary, as the Russian-English war rages in the north, Russia reclaiming its land as the French and Germans harass the English to the west. Things seems dire for the English, yet they have been known to be resourceful; their rush for Scandinavia has left them in a position for rapid expansion. Just as the French took over Western Europe, with only minimal resistance from the Italians, who have now almsot completely changed focus onto claiming the rapidly fading Austrian lands. Will this lead to an Italian-Turkish war? Will Austria survive? Will Die Chronik release on time next year? The answer to all of those are probably no, but only time will tell!
01 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: Haha hello, it is I Enzo Petit. coming to you from Paris the city of love!
it is Autumn 1904, the War to End all Wars is still going strong! Russia the figurehead of many controversies is being pinned down by the English in the Nordic regions losing Sweden and Finland, however their forces from Moscow are taking back Petersburg as we speak, can Russia recover?
Austria is losing on two fronts, Italy and turkey are pounding her into submission however our forces are carving straight into the heart of Italy. Austria has been thankful for such help.
Our newest fleet "The Queens Head" is heading into the North Sea details are scarce but that's not our job to spread lies like the Italians.
Our fierce stalemate in the SW is still going Tunis is the goal however and we must keep going strong. At the same time a new front in Piedmont has been opened. What kind of tactics are these? Find out next year!
This is Enzo Petit closing from Paris!

03 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1905: cool
03 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1905: A message from the editors of 'Die Chronik,' the German News Outlet-
"It has come to our attention that the other news outlets of the world have decided to release their issues in the Autumns of each year. Thus, Die Chronik, The Chronicle, has moved its yearly release to Autumn instead of Spring. Glory to Germany, and give your prayers to Austria! The Turkish swarm them like rats, so, on behalf of Germany, send them your sympathies."

-
- ■■■■■■■: I'm sure. If you noticed it's a diversion tactic. The German armies have no possibility of further landings on our coastline while the French are all but focused in the Mediterranean, leaving only a single convoy escort in our path.
-
- ■■■■■■■■■: But what about the docked submarines at Denmark? If they decide to come out, our entire supply lines to Scandinavia will be cut off. While the Russians have retreated seeing both our current situations, there is no doubt that they will try to reclaim it again!
-
- ■■■■■■■: That is where the Geo-political situation comes in our favor. Turkey is unstoppable. This entire time not a single nation opposed Turkish expansion, and the "famous" Sevastopol fleets were all but useless against their assault, so in the end they scrapped them. Germany situation is one of caution though. Well their submarine fleet does propose a threat, they are useless as ■■■ ■■■■■■ ■■■■■■■ ■■■■■■ are ■■■■■■ ■■■■■■. As you can see, the situation is clear for us. While the intrusion at Edinburgh as indeed annoying. They will be swiftly destroyed alongside the traitors flaunting about outside of London

05 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1906: Die Chronik, returning into Spring of 1906, after the English government leaked confidential information, this issue has been realigned to release in Spring.
"War rages across Europe! A war on all sides, German forces hold the line against the Turkish advance, supporting Austrians whose homes have been ruined by war, and respectfully greeting their French neighbors. However, their line is not for naught. Russia's war with the English tears across the north, brave German troops risking their lives, along with a single fleet of selfless Frenchmen, and the entire might of the Russian Azer Army, all working to defeating the warmongers known as the English. Deep south, steadily encroaching on German lands, the Italians raid previously Austrian lands along with the Turks, who seem to indiscriminately take over whatever land is in front of them. Valiantly, the French maintain their hold over Western Europe, holding back a war on two fronts, their only respite a line dividing the German-French border, where the two cultures mix in harmony.
Interviewing Austrian refugees, one was quoted saying 'Sitting safely in Berlin is wonderful this time of year.' Truly, if one good thing was to come of this war, was that cultures have mixed; the good have allied to fight the wicked. We promise unbiased news, yet this next sentiment is with all of the German, Austrian, French, and Russian pride the people have mustered- 'Down with England! Down with Turkey! Down with Italy! Peace will prevail!'"

- TRANSCRIPT -
-
- George: It was in the Autumn of 1904 when we as a nation faced our biggest foe. It was when we were showed we were not invincible. It was when we were shown that even the longest of relationships will not stifle the most greedy of men. It was in the Autumn of 1904, when we, the English Government, gave permission to a small French fleet, who at the time we were on friendly terms with. It was only when he fleet began sailing out north of London when we were mildly surprised. Such an unexpected action went against what we were initially told so we sent a telegram to the French. The telegram went exactly as follows.
-
- English Telegram: Hmm, if so then move your North Sea fleet back into the English Channel. I'll need to take my fleet out and with your fleet blocking the path, I couldn't support my war effort.
-
- George: When the France moved there fleet into the English Channel, it made sense. The Germans are putting there armies on the French border and the French were completely focusing there war effort on Italy. So we trusted them, and trusted them we did. The only reply we got from France before the landing of German troops was as follows/
-
- French Telegram: Will do moving
-
- George: "Will do moving". That was the most simple of replies for one of the most henious of actions we can ever expect. As to cover their alternate goals, they replied in but a simple and short message. Never had I and every other Englishmen out there fighting have been more shocked than what happened that day. And so, we had to come to terms when deciding the future of England. The war effort against Russia has stopped and in place was peace. For the desperate survival of both our nations, we allied together, alongside with the overwhelming forces of Turkey, for the hope of victory. While the Turkish and Russian forces move on Berlin, we have only one job, and that is to fight! We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender, and even if, which I do not for a moment believe, this Island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, would carry on the struggle, until, in God’s good time, the New World, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old.

09 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1907: Boy you leaking shit?
20 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 1911: Due to France's negligence, the last German Army shall fall. It was a good fight they fought; a brave fight. But it was a lost fight. This was known when the Russian-Turkish alliance was realized, when Austria fell, when France was invaded, when Italy fell... The awesome might of the Russians and the Turks has sent ripples across the world. Germany has fallen, its leader about to be slain or imprisoned, but its culture preserved. Its impact, preserved. The mark it left on the world, a bastion against Tyranny, an ally of both France and Austria, its legacy as a nation that REFUSED to bow to unbeatable odds... It will be preserved, and the world will remember.
20 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 1911: I'm sorry Germany I have to protect my own country
21 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 1911: You're resistance is futile. All your base are belong to us.
24 Oct 17 UTC You won. Even though the rest survived, you get all the points .
