19 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1901: Good luck, everyone!
25 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: Germany missed. Annoying.
25 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: Germany missing so much is kinda annoying.
25 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: It certainly is annoying, but you have to consider this past day was Thanksgiving in America and that could have had something to do with it. That is why I adjusted my vote to pause the game temporarily so as to make sure everyone had their turn.
25 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: Well, it's something one has to deal with in online games. It happens at least every other game that someone goes inactive. It's never something people want to have happen, but you know it will, so you just hope it won't cause you disaster.
27 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: Sorry guys. I'll get back to restoring German unification immediately.
27 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: Oh, and could we avoid attacking germany until next turn, so that I can have a chance to recover from thanksgiving?
01 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: What's up, Germany?
01 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: Yes, what is the reason for the pause request?
01 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: I think he misunderstood something that has now been resolved, though I may be mistaken.
04 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: These turns go by too fast, can we have a slower game next time?
04 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: They're a day and a half turns, but yes we can.
15 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: Heh. England, I hope you trust Italy- if not, you handed him the game.
22 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 1908: Yay! I'm dead! And one turn away from taking St. Petersburg too...
22 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 1908: I believe I can send out messages to the individual powers then. So despite being knocked out, I'm going to continue coordinating with whomever happens to be controlling Berlin.
24 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: Just for reference: I'm headed out of the country in 2 days and won't have internet access. So if the game isn't done in two days, I'll be missing turns.
24 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: I am doubting that it will be done then . . . though I don't think it will be much longer than that. Shall we pause?
25 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: I say we should probably pause then. Missing turns would end the game anyway, and that isn't very fun. We can probably play maybe one more turn, then I say pause the game and wait. No reason to ruin the end of the game.
25 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: How long would you be out of the country? (just wondering)
25 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: For two weeks.

If you all want to pause and finish when I'm back I am cool with that.
25 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: I am also open to a draw; though that is less fair to Italy since a solo is a very real possibility here.
25 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: Okay, I'm fine with two weeks. I am about to be using a lot more time on BM anyway, with some of my plans going on there. I'll vote pause as soon as you do. Was going to see if we could get one more turn through anyway.

We can also start up a new game after the 2 weeks are up, as we just finish this game if you want because I believe most of the time consuming negotiations are over.
25 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: well, I missed a few turns there due to the early birth of my daughter. Fair trade, I suppose. :P
25 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: Heh. Congrats!
25 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: Congrats. That's as good a reason as any.
25 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 1909: Congrats. Well the pause works even better then for everyone.
26 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 1909: Okay, I'm gone!

So long!
26 Dec 11 UTC With the game now paused, see y'all in 2 weeks. I propose when ever Russia gets back that he posts on the BM forum that he's back and ready for it to be restarted again. I'll be checking both of these anyway, but still a good idea to check that so we can come back, unpause, and quickly finish.
27 Dec 11 UTC Sounds good.
27 Dec 11 UTC Just thought about it, that this removes the anonymity of the game, but this game is essentially over anyway, so I'm not sure it is that big of a problem as we'll all soon know who is who.
27 Dec 11 UTC Well, I pretty much know who's who already (and have for a while), so. . . .
27 Dec 11 UTC I only have a guess at the two remaining big players other than myself. I might have them switched though, and unfortunately I gave up trying to hide my identity a while ago as well. It was fun at the beginning but it got too difficult to act out of person.
27 Dec 11 UTC I would be curious though as to what specifically gave me away.
27 Dec 11 UTC Well, I could be wrong, but mostly I figured things out by a combination of writing style and skill at the game . . . I knew that besides me, two people played often, one played from time to time (and possibly not in a while), and the rest not really much at all.

I figured it was most likely that the two more successful nations were the ones who played often. France seemed to know how to play, but be a bit rusty. From there, writing style helped me quite a bit, and the fact that Russia is going on a two week vacation at the exact same time as one of the people I know to be playing (I know they are going on vacation because they play in one of the realms I do) confirmed their identity.

Though the fact that you still only have a guess makes me less certain about you, since the person I thought you were also has a character in the same realm where Russia's player just said they were going on vacation.
27 Dec 11 UTC I'm Gustav Kuriga, if you were having any doubts about that.
27 Dec 11 UTC Oh, everyone, leave me Finland. I want to see that thing stay brown at the endgame so I can claim it as my own for whatever reason.
27 Dec 11 UTC Well that is something I guess. It seems I did manage to hide my identity from you at least until the end of the game, although you have confirmed my guesses as to who each of you are. Although, I think now that I had switched England and France, but I got Russia right.

Russia should know who I am of anyone in the game though. We'll see.

Anyway, here's a hint: I've never played a game of diplomacy before.
27 Dec 11 UTC Huh. Interesting.

May I just say, this is a pretty impressive feat for your first game.
27 Dec 11 UTC I drew my very first game 17-17, but I played Russia which is easier than Italy in many ways . . . Italy is one of the hardest nations for a new player, along with Austria . . . for an experienced player, Italy isn't too bad.
28 Dec 11 UTC Yes, I am aware of that now having read up some on the game since we have started. I thought it was a pretty cool thing to be able to set up a solo victory with Italy on my first game knowing that Italy is essentially the hardest nation to play in many people's opinions.
09 Jan 12 UTC I'm back!
10 Jan 12 UTC Impressive victory, Silverfire!
10 Jan 12 UTC Damn, I thought it would take another year . . . impressive.
10 Jan 12 UTC It would have taken another year assuming every player on the board made all of their "optimal" moves. (So far as I can tell). But I put my moves in place to allow for ppl to make mistakes.

Good Game friends.
