IM LYING THROUGH MY TEETH
YOUR TEARS ARE ALL THE COMPANY I NEED
01 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 2: In a changing world, some things do not change. It may be fashionable to decry the simple Virtues, but we still like to find them in our friends. Loyalty, honesty, frankness, gratitude, chivalry, magnanimity - these are the hallmarks of the good friend, the good husband and father, the nice guy we all hope our daughters will marry.
In the amoral world of Diplomacy, however, they are the hallmarks of the born loser. If a fallen enemy reaches out a hand for assistance, the wise man lops it off. If a friend does you a good turn when you’re down, wait until he’s down, then beat him to death. If an ally asks for your help in planning the next season’s moves, give it freely and copiously, then do the reverse of what you agreed and let him take the counter-attack. Try to surround yourself with people who trust you, then let them down; find an ally who will gladly die for you and see that he does just that.

02 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 3: Yeah, I didn't want to give him a chance to move in behind me, I needed men to support the ones in-front.
02 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 3: well since we cant move, even after unpaused, i voted pause.
02 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 3: Noah and Chris need to jump off a cliff.
02 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 3: no, then the game would never unpause

02 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 3: Noah and Chris, I take back the cliff jumping comment, turns out it isn't working for anyone.
02 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 3: Everyone, go to the bottom of the page and make a report saying, "This game isn't showing orders or the map."
02 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 3: No! if you click on the little arrow in the middle point up and right it shows you the map in a separate tab.
