Romanian women aren't all that hot,I should know,being Romanian and all.

Well,Lady Darkside I wish you good luck in your upcoming game.

May spam guide your path.



Good luck to you all.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


Well, at the time the game was set, and probably at the time when the game was fist published, it was spelled Rumania in English. In any case, the u spelling makes it easier to remember the notation for Rome and Romania.

Look at it this way: Only one letter is out of place for Rumania. The spelling mistakes in calling Britain England, or calling the Ottoman Empire Turkey are far greater! Every letter is wrong! :wacko:

Oh, and Mets, will people contacting you through the email button give you their email addresses?

I didn't really follow the last thread, but a turn by turn recap for spectators would be cool (for me anyways).

All we'd have to do for that is make public the E-mail ajudications Rev normally sends to us after a turn is resolved. :huh:

I'll follow the precedent set by Mr Reveilled, and update the first post as we go through the game.

I can post an EoT summary, with the map, for the spectators.

(As to the diplomacy, that will have to be duessed at and spun out ...)

Of course.


We'll be like the spectators from Asia and the Americas looking in and wondering WTF is happening :huh:

Saying "England is pretending to help France, but is really trying to fuxx0r them in the end" might be a bit much.

The Platoon slogan was "First Casualty of War is innocence" wasn't it?


I like that one too.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

I have everyone's list except Aishur's, and that's because he hasn't signed on in the last 12 hours.

I have left him a message.

I guess the timing of rounds will be similar to the first game, as it is more down to a matter of availability to access the game: some people might only (average) once/one-and-a-half-times a week (over the period of the entire game), so that limits how fsat the turns can take.

This is because there must be a set deadline for each turn, so that orders can be sent, resent and negotiations can take place right up to the deadline (which is when most negotiations IRL take place, too).

It might be a good idea for everyone to nominate how quickly they would like the game to proceed; if everyone is happy for rounds to be adjuducated faster than one a week, then we might be able to accommodate that.

Let me know (secret ballot = email me).

I don't want to fill this thread with off-topic spam and all, but my advice to the players is to get your stuff in early. If all the players are done, turns can end early and gameplay can move. Waiting 4 days for nothing isn't fun.
