05 Jan 09 UTC Spring, 1903: excuse me but your little love in is making me gag
05 Jan 09 UTC Spring, 1903: C'mon Harv. You're a filthy, rotten BS artiste as well. The master of forged emails and sower of confusion!
05 Jan 09 UTC Spring, 1903: On the sixth day of Hate Week, after the processions, the speeches, the shouting, the singing, the banners, the posters, the films, the waxworks, the rolling of drums and squealing of trumpets, the tramp of marching feet, the grinding of the caterpillars of tanks, the roar of massed planes, the booming of guns — after six days of this, when the great orgasm was quivering to its climax and the general hatred of England had boiled up into such delirium that if the crowd could have got their hands on the 2,000 English war-criminals who were to be publicly hanged on the last day of the proceedings, they would unquestionably have torn them to pieces — at just this moment it had been announced that Russia was not after all at war with Turkey. Russia was at war with Austria. England was an ally.

There was, of course, no admission that any change had taken place. Merely it became known, with extreme suddenness and everywhere at once, that Austria and not England was the enemy. Winstonovich was taking part in a demonstration in one of the central Moscow squares at the moment when it happened. It was night, and the white faces and the scarlet banners were luridly floodlit. The square was packed with several thousand people, including a block of about a thousand schoolchildren in the uniform of the Young Servants Of The Dear Leader. On a scarlet-draped platform an orator of the Inner Party, a small lean man with disproportionately long arms and a large bald skull over which a few lank locks straggled, was haranguing the crowd. A little Rumpelstiltskin figure, contorted with hatred, he gripped the neck of the microphone with one hand while the other, enormous at the end of a bony arm, clawed the air menacingly above his head. His voice, made metallic by the amplifiers, boomed forth an endless catalogue of atrocities, massacres, deportations, lootings, rapings, torture of prisoners, bombing of civilians, lying propaganda, unjust aggressions, broken treaties. It was almost impossible to listen to him without being first convinced and then maddened. At every few moments the fury of the crowd boiled over and the voice of the speaker was drowned by a wild beast-like roaring that rose uncontrollably from thousands of throats. The most savage yells of all came from the schoolchildren. The speech had been proceeding for perhaps twenty minutes when a messenger hurried on to the platform and a scrap of paper was slipped into the speaker's hand. He unrolled and read it without pausing in his speech. Nothing altered in his voice or manner, or in the content of what he was saying, but suddenly the names were different. Without words said, a wave of understanding rippled through the crowd. Russia was at war with Austria! The next moment there was a tremendous commotion. The banners and posters with which the square was decorated were all wrong! Quite half of them had the wrong faces on them. It was sabotage! The agents of Harvstein had been at work! There was a riotous interlude while posters were ripped from the walls, banners torn to shreds and trampled underfoot. The Young Servants Of The Dear Leader performed prodigies of activity in clambering over the rooftops and cutting the streamers that fluttered from the chimneys. But within two or three minutes it was all over. The orator, still gripping the neck of the microphone, his shoulders hunched forward, his free hand clawing at the air, had gone straight on with his speech. One minute more, and the feral roars of rage were again bursting from the crowd. The Hate continued exactly as before, except that the target had been changed.

Russia was at war with Austria. Russia had always been at war with Austria.
05 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1903: On no the great ugly Satan has reared it's ugly head again in the East. help help help
05 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1903: Be quiet, you fascist stooge. The Dear Leader does not wish to hear your incessant whining.
05 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1903: you know it is hard to believe but i think your declaration of war was even longer then anything Neville wrote to Daniel
05 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1903: haha
05 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1903: That was the passage i kept talking about and Jen never believed me!

06 Jan 09 UTC Spring, 1904: Germany you played well actually if you hadn't missed an order phase i think we would have had to negotiate both of us.
07 Jan 09 UTC Spring, 1904: Why isn't this thing adjudicating? I'm impatient!
07 Jan 09 UTC Spring, 1904: i believe on the forum it says that the Admin has turned off the Adjudicator as he works out a bug. It should be back on shortly.
07 Jan 09 UTC Spring, 1904: Strange though every time I log in it says at the top that Germany is logged in but below it says that he isn't.
07 Jan 09 UTC Spring, 1904: HUUUUURRRRRYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

08 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: Mwahahahahahahahahahaha!

Sorry Harv, but it had to be done. You have a long, long overdue karmic debt that I owe you from that nasty "Central Alliance" game.

And oh yeah, Russia is at war with Austria. Russia has always beena t war with Austria.
08 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: And Germany, that was a good game. Well played, sirrah.
09 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: Oh man the computer is waiting for the order to send the last german fleet to Hel!
09 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: To Hel.

Hahahahahahaha!

I expect he'll find Harvey there, wearing his big Poo-Bah hat.
09 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: New Russian haiku:

Austria is weak,
struggling with just four centers.
Russia kicked his ass!

He loses yet more centers!
09 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: Ha ha ha Harvey,
your karma just expired!
I really like Bud.
09 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: Vie, Tri, Van, and Nap.
Is that all you have. You should
never have been that foolish.
09 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: Budapest burning!
Russian troops pillage and loot.
Too bad you left it!
09 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: Harve is wondering,
"Where did my empire go?"
It's all in my hands!
09 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: you have too much time on your hands old man!
09 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: No, I'm quite busy preparing for my final assault on Evil Harve's capital. These are used to inspire the troops.
10 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: one day my pretty
10 Jan 09 UTC Spring, 1905: can I get a survey on this?

Autumn 1904: Supporting the Germans had nothing to do with our previous agreement. That is the way the game is played. YOU violated our agreement by entering the Gulf of Lyon and now Russia will win because YOU couldn't honour agreements.

I recieved this reom the Italians. They seem to think that a deal that we had t stay out of each other's way meant that he could actively support another power against me and I wouldn't move to deal with Italy. And becuase I stopped Italy from taking out my ally Austria I let Russia win the game. What do you guys think? Was a bad boy by moving to GOL?
10 Jan 09 UTC Spring, 1905: I might point out that GOL doesn't actually boarder any Italian centre
10 Jan 09 UTC Spring, 1905: Do I not know how the game is played?
11 Jan 09 UTC Spring, 1905: Yup. Otherwise you never would have attacked me. Fighting with Germany right from the outset just slows you down.
11 Jan 09 UTC Spring, 1905: Oh stop whining, all of you. We all know that this war can be firmly blamed on the Turks. They deliberately used their mind-control powers to force me to attack them, thereby breaking the delicate balance of power in Europe.
11 Jan 09 UTC Spring, 1905: Oh I see but your Ally Italy knows how the game is played and attacked Asutria in S01. And since I am the guy on the board with 11 centres and I actually had to fight for them. I don't think it slowed me down one bit.
12 Jan 09 UTC You know it's not good when you have the same number of centers, at the end of a game, as the guy who never showed up.
12 Jan 09 UTC Russia, Russia Uber Alles!
12 Jan 09 UTC Good game, boys + girls. It was a fun tussle in central europe!
