Copying from Diplomacy 3 because I'm lazy!!! Thanks Galz!!!


The game has reached its conclusion! Congratulations to France, Germany, and Turkey on the 3-way tie!

The powers are:

Austria: A Drowned Kernel
England: Grujah
France: Just a Rube
Germany: ghostofmars
Italy: heron
Russia: Jack Rudd
Turkey: KingZog3


The starting board is below, see the opening post for some cool Diplomacy resources and tools.

Please send me the moves by PM before the deadline (I will try to be strict yet kind, a difficult and narrow path to walk). I can also make a QT for moves submission if you prefer.

First deadline is let's say Tuesday morning 9/2, 1 am forum time. Deadlines will be 3 Days for Spring/Fall Orders, 24 Hours for Winter Builds (I will aim to keep retreats within the flow of the 7 day cycle). (Early submissions allowed and encouraged; if you change your mind at any time, new moves will be accepted up until I have posted the updated map. However you can mark your orders with FINAL if you choose, and if all players have done so, I'll update early.) If you feel that these deadlines are too short or too long at any point, let me know, and we can open up a discussion.

Should we all do what ADK did and put out flag as our picture?

I can't find you on facebook. there's a lot of Vanja Grujic's and also no alfred patak's. If you can find me, Steven Labute on facebook. If any of you want to add me that's ok I guess, just be sure to tell me so I know who you are.

I'd be glad to push this deadline back a little ways. The first diplomacy phase is traditionally longer so players can get their footing, and we haven't heard yet from two of our players. How about Tuesday morning at 1 am forum time?

Any other methods of communication besides the QT are fine. But then I don't get to eavesdrop! :P

I don't know what the comments were like last time, but I'd rather comments no revolve around strategy, or at least anything that could affect a current turn. The wrong word could instil doubt in a person, and I'd rather that come from another player and not an observer.

But I mean, comment away :P I just want to be sure it won't mess with the game status.

I've sent out a prod PM to Russia. Hopefully he'll turn up in the next couple days (too much vodka, one suspects), but if not we may have to look for a sub.

Also, since there don't seem to be objections I've gone ahead and moved the first deadline to Tuesday morning 9/2, 1 am forum time. Hopefully that will give ample time for communication and we can get a sub if need be.

I'm going to declare a 24 hour replacement warning for Jack Rudd. I'm sorry if this seems harsh, but that'll be 3 days since the start of the game, which would ordinarily be an entire turn. I want this game to not take a year, and that means being active at least once every three days.

Let me know if you'd be interested in subbing. Also, let me know if you think this is overly tyrannical. I don't like replacing people, but the show must go on.

I think it's fair. All other countries have been active, most with multiple posts. Rudd is only guy who hasn't said anything, or posted here even.
