11 May 11 UTC Spring, 1901: Good day all. While some of you may disagree with my divulging, it seems unfair that I know who all of you are without you having a chance to know each other and connections.

England - Jason Kehoe, graduated from Orchard about 8 years ago.
France - Alicia LaMagdeleine, fellow instructor at Univeristy High school
Germany - EJ Henricks, graduated Orchard about 9 years ago and Univesity high school 5 years ago.
Russia - Bill Thornburgh, fellow instructor at University high school
France - Nick Eble, instructor at the Orchard school
Austria - David Braitman, graduated from Orchard about 8 years ago with Kehoe.
Turkey - Jamie Napier, former Orchfr teacher, currently at University.

Note - I may be of by a year or two on grad times - apologies if so.

No one should be deceived - everyone in this game is a a college grad and a damn good player. David and Jason are good friends, but will stab each other in the back given the chance. So that's enough sharing . . . talk in character if you'd like. Play on!
11 May 11 UTC Spring, 1901: and if you've never played with EJ... knives will be flying. I'm making an early declaration of war against those evil Germans!
11 May 11 UTC Spring, 1901: I fear you've over-estimated me: I have yet to win a game.
13 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1901: TIME OUT! HOW ARE THERE TWO FRANCES?! WHY IS THERE NO ITALY?! WHY DO I LOVE INTERROBANGS?!

Sorry for the all caps.
13 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1901: If you were truly sorry, then you wouldn't have used them in the first place.
14 May 11 UTC Spring, 1902: True, but I am confused as to why France is listed twice in the intro. Will the real France player please stand up?
14 May 11 UTC Spring, 1902: Nick Eble is Italy
14 May 11 UTC Spring, 1902: I am? Well that significantly changes my strategy.
Way to burst my bubble guys, thanks.
14 May 11 UTC Spring, 1902: Whoops - bonus point to EJ.
15 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: Well this IS unfortunate. Before the game starts I have Russia declare war on me, and on turn 3 England is supporting France into my homeland. What a rowdy group of warmongers you are.
17 May 11 UTC Spring, 1903: Austria what could you have possibly done to make all three of your immediate neighbors attack you?
17 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: Dominated all of you last game
19 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: Apparently Austria can't last long with 3 enemy neighbors. Good luck everyone!
20 May 11 UTC Spring, 1904: Poor Austria. In the end, he wasn't the enemy, but we were. Look to your hearts, rulers! Is this what being the ruler of a European society has come to? Petty squabbling among neighbors, ruthless land grabs and meaningless wars?

Call me old-fashioned, but I remember a Europe that had honor, dignity, a sense of derring-do and imperial oneupmanship, where cultural superiority was not determined by strength of arms against other Europeans but by launching daring expeditions, collecting exotic flora and fauna, publishing scientific treatise and of course ruthlessly subjugating other people on different continents and pillaging their lands.

To fight amongst ourselves is downright petty. Let us reclaim our faded glory and do what we do best: shoot at people who haven't mastered gunpowder, then take whatever we want.
20 May 11 UTC Spring, 1904: Speaking on behalf of central asia - I take exception to your European culture spreading. Just because you all grew up in barns alongside your own cattle to get immunity to the great poxes of our time - doesn't give you the right to subjugate other peoples. -Turkey
20 May 11 UTC Spring, 1904: Oh yeah, I forgot about Turkey...

Gentlemen, load your carbines.
20 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: Well look at that, those go-getters in Sevastopol beat me to it.
30 May 11 UTC Spring, 1907: so... can i take over russia or
30 May 11 UTC Spring, 1907: ...should we all vote draw and try again. Just finishing your sentence.
31 May 11 UTC Spring, 1907: There should be no draws when the fate of Europe is at stake
01 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: man, that super fleet in rumania is doing things i've never seen before
01 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: Umm... are we voting draw? Or are those old?
01 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: I suggested a draw, then the ghost of Austria miraculously spoke to us from the grave.
Turkey, who at the time was leading, magnanimously registered the initial draw vote, and I followed suit. You can choose how you would like to proceed, but my vote stands. No Russia really changes the dynamic, but if you enjoy bullying an absent opponent...
02 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: Well... I'd don't get to play diplomacy with folks that I know very often, so I'm game to play this out (unless of course we wanted to start a new game).

And I do enjoy it. Very much.
02 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: Also, it seems Russia is both missing turns and somehow checking in...
04 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 1908: Russia is blessed with the ability to CD and still survive (perhaps even until the final turns, see Vesper's brilliant strategy in the Battle for 116th v 2.1). Had I realized that last game, I would have fared significantly better.
06 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: Vesper also has alternate win conditions, which are often more easily achieved than the one outlined within the game rules.
09 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 1909: I'll be submitting the same orders as last time. Tus S Ven, and Rom-Nap.
If you'd like something different, let me know.
09 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 1909: is it a psychological ploy or did he just send global instead of private... we may never know
09 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 1909: I'd like something different. How about Tus-Pie and Rom S Nap-Tyr.
09 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 1909: I'll consider your request.
09 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 1909: No other requests? Time is running out.
09 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 1909: rome to tus, tus to rome. the ol switchiroo
13 Jun 11 UTC Congratulations!
14 Jun 11 UTC Good game to all!
