20 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1902: Felix end your turn.
20 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1902: Umber end your turn.
21 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1903: Let it be known to all, that I, the great Kaiser of the German Reich, spared my German brothers in Austria, and kindly returned Vienna to them. Yet now, I, having honored my word, am so cruelly taken advantage of by the liars and cheats in the French government. I ask you all to heed my advice, know that the French should not be trusted, and that any good and honorable sovereign in Europe should join my in my righteous battle to defeat them.
21 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1903: Let it be known that the Kaiser of the German people offered fair peace terms to the French, and they spat in his face. They are but warmongering dogs, partial to nothing but violence.
21 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1903: I appeal to the good hearts and fine people of European aristocracy, do not let their actions go unpunished. Do not let these bloodthirsty fools carry on from victory to victory. Let their madness be stopped now!
21 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1903: The dying screams of a mad animal...
21 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1903: The German people shall not die today! GOTT MIT UNS!
21 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1903: Germany, I must say, such accusations are, well, beneath a civilized people, but I suppose your people were never truly civilized to begin with. Never had I ever said we could be allies. To think otherwise would be madness.
21 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1903: I offered to stop at Holland and move no further into your lands, and you accepted this agreement. There was no alliance, but what the honorable German people thought was an agreement of good faith!
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: The deceitful French suffer yet another defeat at the hands of the Kaiserreich! An entire French army encircled and destroyed in the Rhineland! The pitiful attempt at invasion of the noble German people will be pushed back! Gott mit uns!
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: Let it be known that the British Empire has declared war upon the German Empire for their failure to protect the lives of Austrian civilians, abandoning them in their hour of need. After repeatedly denying our requests to involve themselves in the disastrous conflict in Austria, we have been given no choice but to attack.

If the Kaiser cannot protect you, the Queen will.
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: The bloodthirsty English declare war, not for any broken treaties, but out of lust for land. They ask me to sacrifice my lands in order to save the Austrians. After I already abandoned my occupation of Vienna in order to save them.
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: The Queen is not an ally to any nation, merely a harsh dictator who expects other sovereign nations to follow her orders or be destroyed.
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: If protection of the Austrians was truly her goal? Why have they done nothing to protect them?
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: It was the Kaiser who returned Vienna to them, not the queen.
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: Ask the Austrians yourselves, and they will point to their true ally, Her Majesty. Do the nations of Europe not find it odd that, when given a chance to strike their mutual enemy, the Italians left Munich wide open, and continue to do so? Not contesting, not pushing, merely standing by as their allies, the French, die for German soil. Meanwhile, the Germans, supposed allies of the Austrian Empire, are content to sit back and watch as the rampaging Italian armies beneath their border sack Austrian towns, ruining lives in the process!
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: It was the Queen who suggested the Kaiser return Vienna, it was the Queen who enabled the Kasier's continued success, and it will be the Queen who puts an end to his weak reign. Much like his weakened, phallic arm, the Kaiser's grasp on politics is as pathetic as a malformed hand.
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: The Kasier of the German Empire relied on the Queen to betray his allies, the Russians, relied on her to secure his position in Europe by her side, and relied on her to bargain with the Austrians for a truce after his disastrous invasion.
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: The Kasier is little more than a limp dick royal, a man unfit to be called as such, who must rely on the strength of women to save Austria, Germany, and his own pride. Cast aside this weakling and let him be forgotten in the annuls of history.
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: People of Austria! Her Majesty the Queen is here for you! Never forget the eternal bond of solidarity that she shares with you, across language, culture, and borders alike.
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: Vile serpent. Look at the orders for the last 6 months of combat, I supported my french allies in an attack against Munich, while you, you pathetic English dog, have done nothing but poster and bully, with no aid given to any save yourself. You lowly worm, Italian blood was shed in Munich supporting an attack from the Ruhr that never game, because the french decided to change their orders at the last moment.
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: The Sultan is most amused.
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: Excuses from the laughing stock of Europe. Do not presume you have France fooled. They are well aware of your treachery, and your desperate attempts to ally the Ottomans, out of fear that their "failures" will cost you your war.
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: The Kaiser has helped Austria. The Queen has sat on her throne in London and pretended to help. The Queen promised to help France in their invasion of Germany, then turned her back. The Queen is an opportunist, a liar, and a thief. She will stab any ally in the back if it means another meter of land under the union jack. I appeal to all nations of Europe, do not trust the English lies!
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: the laughing stock of Europe? You call an empire strength and Majesty equal to your own the laughing stock of Europe? When Germany rants and raves like a mad beast, and France failed to take what should have been an easy victory for the second time in weeks? And yet you denounce US? You do not seek allies, you seek puppets and thralls to be played against one another, and thrown away like so much dead wood afterwards. I would watch your tongue Englishman, or you will soon find yourself with no friends left in Europe.
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: Oh, so you admit to your hatred for France, do you? That they "failed to take what should have been an easy victory." The Empire doesn't see it that way. You have shown your true colours to our supposed ally, Italy. Or were you ever an ally of ours to begin with?
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: Such an ally, the English. Promising the world and delivering nothing. You claim to be allied with a great deal of nations, yet you do nothing to help them.
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: While I must confess that I am no more trusting of the italians, given certain movements, neither am I trusting of the english with so many lands taken it might be prudent to consider them an empire once more.
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: Tell me how the invasion of Russia has helped Italy or France?
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: Why don't you tell the world of how you offered your support to the Kaiser should the French attack?
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: I have done a great deal to help many nations all in service of peace in our time. I have never betrayed my French allies, nor have I ever betrayed my Austrian or Ottoman allies. I merely played along with you to keep Austria alive, pretending to be on your side against the French and Italians while Keeping your hands off of the valuables of this continent. Yet now you ally with the Italians? Ironic.
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: I hate only incompetence, which the french have displayed. But they are still my ally, and I am still theirs. I lothe this shifting of blame, and the vile ravings of a madman who thinks Europe is his despite holding only some barren wastelands in the north makes my stomach sick.
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: You are right, you have never betrayed your allies. Because your armies have never been in touching distance of them.
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: They've been in touching distance the entire time, Kaiser. Or has the rot in your arm spread to your eyes, too? Belgium has always been a safe haven for the French, keeping you at bay. We have never violated the channel, as per our agreement with one another. You know less about the Empire than you claim.
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: Tell us, what was your arrangement with the Russians? it appears like you made an offer to swap St. Petersburg for Sweden. And then decided that fulfilling your end of this bargain simply wasn't for you.
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: Not at all, they fled out of Sweden for some unknown reason, actually.
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: Behaviour typical of a weak, kingmaker of a state
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: I moved, expecting them to flee to the Gulf of Bothnia to try and capture St. Petersburg
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: But they simply fled to the wrong place, giving me Sweden for free.
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: You moved to Sweden without support? how convenient for you that this should work out.
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: The French would do well to remember that it was I, the Kaiser, who offered Belgium to them. If it had been me they had become allies with, it would have truly been theirs. As it stands, Belgium is nothing more than an English base for invasion of France, and assurance that they stay loyal to you, or else. Which seems to be the only kind of loyalty that you inspire.
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: Your conjecture is meaingless, German, for the French know the truth. Is running your mouth to poison the well all you can do?
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: Do you speak for all your allies England? or are they permitted their own thoughts.
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: In the same way you speak for the competency of your allies armies, I assure you. A pot shouldn't call the kettle black.
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: I speak to their actions, not their thoughts. I would never presume to tell you what the leave of France was thinking, only how I felt about their actions.
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: Then let it be known, each season (Turn) of this game, the Italians have promised peace and prosperity, and each season (Turn), they have committed to assaults. Even now, they offer to sell out the Ottomans, French, and Germans in exchange for an alliance that is not real. And that is the truth, any and all promises made to any and all parties by the Italians are simply not real.
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: While many claim that the Italians are backstabbers, the Ottoman Empire has yet to experience any sort of betrayal or lie from the Italians,
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: Your words are greatly appreciated my friend
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: The Sultan knows the truth. He has been a steadfast ally and supporter of the Kaiser since the beginning, and now he knows what must be done. He must join forces with the noble Italians and the great Kaiser, and together we must work to defend agaisnt the insidious forces of the English.
21 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: For now, I seek to remain neutral, if friendly, to the Germans and french, and aid any who seeks war against the British.
