I'm not near email. I build a fleet in Trieste (the coastal one) and an army in each of my other home terrorities (Vienna... and that other one). I hope that's clear enough.

I find Saints comment to be obtuse, confusing and dense, and I demand monetary compensation for my mental anguish and loss of earnings resulting from this confusion.
If you're ever in an argument and Entropy winds up looking staid and temperate in comparison, it might be time to cut your losses and start a new thread about something else :)

the burden of having expectations is certain disappointment

Well, France's last comments (in an email sent to me) sounded like he was leaning towards opting out of the game.  I mildly cajoled, but to no effect yet, and I figure I'll give him one more day to decide.  If I hear nothing (or if I hear a definite withdrawal) France will go into civil disorder and I will disband a unit according to the applicable rules.  We will then continue with Spring '06.  It's '06, right?

I heard from France and he's out...

So I'll get the map up soon, and we can start a new round of diplomacy with a deadline of midnight Thursday night -7/8 GMT.  Of course, if I get orders in beforehand we can finish sooner.

The powers of Italy, Russia, and Austria have agreed that there is no need for further conflict.

ie, we have mutually agreed to end the game.

What is the lesson you learn from all of this? If you are loyal and trustworthy as a team, you will win.

If you call that winning.  I call it a cop out.  As the rules say, if all players agree to a draw then all share equally in a victory, but I still am less than impressed.  In any case, that means game's over!

Thank you for playing everyone.  I hope it was a pleasant experience.  If you're interested the map as it stands at the end of the game is up on the site (Spring06.jpg)  

Thanks again, all!

cop out nothing. You're just mad because we destroyed you second and you never believed that we were all working together in perfect trust, coordinating all our moves. I must say it made just about every turn really easy to move.

We used the rules to our advantage. That's all.

It wasn't the most interesting game ever though :)

Real history is fun because of all the twisty turny alliance silliness.

On that note, I think me and JP should work on a varient of diplomancy named 'Illuminati - secret wars'.

Quickly, to the secret cave with the big table with underlit maps!

As in... lets make a topic and ruminate.
