21 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1901: Welcome to Option B. Though we are still quarantined with our roommates, we can find relief from the love and attention of our families within the bitter world of militaristic diplomacy. From this point forward you have an excuse to spend extended periods of time staring at our computer in private. Long restroom breaks now have an additional excuse.

May your moves be wise.
21 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1901: What are we waiting for.
23 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: Friends and foes in arms, I am going on a special ops mission to the grocery store. Beer and liquor supplies are dwindling, along with the non-essentials of food, batteries, bullets and fresh water.

If I shall not return, keep this in your hearts and minds...

Although we have faced each other or fought side by side on the battle field, I know we each engaged in fierce combat with our own belief of how to save mankind. Mankind. That word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can't be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests. Perhaps it's fate that today is the Twenty-third of March, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom, not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution, but because some asshole ate a bat. We're fighting for our right to live, to exist. And should we win today, the Twenty-third of March will no longer be known as a regular American day, but as the day when the world declared in one voice: We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on! We're going to survive! Today we celebrate our Independence Day!
23 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: Nice
24 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: That pre-grocery shopping speech was paraphrased from the epic speech from the movie "Independence Day".
24 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: Anyway
24 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Did the English just convoy a French army to London?
24 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Viva la France!
24 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Haha! Viva is right!
25 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Well this was a fun distraction. Feel free to contact me again during the next global crisis, when I’ve forgotten how to play again and forgotten that I can’t trust anyone
25 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Definitely a good distraction.

In the game of Diplomacy you can trust people as far as its advantageous to both parties. I thought for sure England and France had an alliance. I didn't trust the English. I was wrong about that.
25 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: "Each betrayal begins with trust. Every man returns to dust." Phish, Farmhouse
