29 Apr 08 UTC Spring, 1901: The Russian Premier has too many points, and is scaring me. England requires the Russian Premier to kill himself immediately.
29 Apr 08 UTC Spring, 1901: Then what are you doing in MY game??
30 Apr 08 UTC Spring, 1901: you have no place in Diplomacy, in my opinion, if you base your game strategy off of my point total.
30 Apr 08 UTC Spring, 1901: so whats everyones favorite ice cream flavor? =)

30 Apr 08 UTC Autumn, 1901: touche
01 May 08 UTC Autumn, 1901: Russia is now scaring me... maybe that strategy of everyone teaming up on the guy with the most points should be re-evaluated!! Oh, wait, then I guess everyone needs to attack Italy... Hmmm... nevermind!!
01 May 08 UTC Autumn, 1901: no fair.
hey Viola we should show em whos boss...
01 May 08 UTC Autumn, 1901: ill just join a 1000 point game so ill look like a nobody, like everyone else =)
01 May 08 UTC Autumn, 1901: What if you win that 7000 point game... You'd be screwed!
02 May 08 UTC Spring, 1902: But then i wouldn't care one bit.
Cuz i'd have 7000ish Points! Which would be SWEET.
02 May 08 UTC Spring, 1902: As is lemon ice-cream in vodka. My favourite. Since you ask.
02 May 08 UTC Spring, 1902: Chocolate is the best
05 May 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: The best ice-cream I ever tasted is made by Eddie Minghella (father of the late film director, Anthony Minghella), who lives just down the road from my mum.
06 May 08 UTC Spring, 1904: Right then, having screwed up royally, and been screwed over by Germany, Russia and even little Italy, the noble thing to do, I think, is to commit suicide by assisting the French invader, he being the only one who is morally within his rights. (Je resterai dans Edimbourg jusqu'à ce que vous êtes dans une position de le prendre.) Best of luck to Turkey and Austria.

Raspberry Ripple is nice, too.
06 May 08 UTC Spring, 1904: England, I like your style!! :-)
06 May 08 UTC Spring, 1904: Hey, hey, your the one in Skaggarack! I only attacked North Sea, a few turns back, to cut support! Can't blame me for the move actually working... Can you? Anyways, good luck!
07 May 08 UTC Spring, 1904: Hey, hey, you're the one in Belgium, mofo!
Why do people keep wishing me luck on my suicide mission?
07 May 08 UTC Spring, 1904: I just figured that Belgium is so close to Holland, it should be mine! You're all the way across the channel(the one with the French fleet in it) so I though I'd just take Belgium. No harm meant by it. ;)
07 May 08 UTC Spring, 1904: You could have given your territories to Austria! He hasn't challenged territories that rightfully belong to you!
07 May 08 UTC Spring, 1904: In fact, there was an English fleet in the channel at the time, it was convoying an army to Belgium, and Germany engaged the services of the French in order to take it.
Austria is welcome to all the English territories it can reach. Do you have aircraft?
07 May 08 UTC Spring, 1904: I tell you what... Since you're mad, I'll give you all the English territory I've taken from you. Oh, wait...
07 May 08 UTC Spring, 1904: Mad as in crazy, or mad as in angry? I'm not crazy enough to waste my time defending this position, and I'm not angry, since you were entirely within your rights. You have the moral high ground. It will be interesting to see where it gets you. :)

The trick with lemon ice-cream in vodka is to dip a teaspoonful of ice-cream into the vodka, so it just gets a slight alcoholic bite to it. While you're savouring the flavouring, the ice-cream is melting into the vodka. Then you pick the glass up, and drink the mix.... Heaven in your face.
07 May 08 UTC Spring, 1904: Man, I may have to try this vodka and lemon ice-cream combo, if for no other reason, as a tribute to one heck of a suicide mission!!
07 May 08 UTC Spring, 1904: It helps if you eat it somewhere warm. Say, Thailand.
Vanilla in whisky is nice, too.
09 May 08 UTC Autumn, 1904: Hey, Italy, I'm morally within my rights, just ask England!! You broke our peace agreement / Pie DMZ, so you should actually commit suicide, just like England is doing because he broke the DMZ I agreed to in the English Channel... You started it, now I'm going to have to finish it, against my will even!!!! ;-)
09 May 08 UTC Autumn, 1904: Don't listen to him. I'm not committing suicide because I broke the DMZ. I'm committing suicide because the German is mean and smells of wee.
17 May 08 UTC Autumn, 1907: Hey, I'll be travelling the next four days, so my orders will be a bit slow, sorry...
17 May 08 UTC Autumn, 1907: Actually, I should have internet access every night/morning, so I shouldn't slow things up too much...
23 May 08 UTC Autumn, 1909: Hello everybody, I am the new Austria.

Put simply, I'm playing, like everyone else here to get as many SCs as I can. Simple as that. I don't have preconceived ideas about who I should be helping.

Furthermore, I will disregard (if any) previous agreements between Austria and any other nations. Everything is back on the table.

Don't take your frustration out on the fact that the previous player CDed. Not my fault.

I won't be CDing, even if I get down to one solitary stranded unit.
