Obsidian Forum Diplomacy Game 2 (OBS-2)

Recommended Posts

Wow, both Germany and France are now capable of time travel - what are the odds?

 

Nah, only in the future... 1901 Germany didn't get any time travel technology. Just one (now) dead assassin. :sorcerer:"

Bloody Franko-Germanic time-stream polution! Anything to get the advantage in their never-ending warfare with each other. How many centuries have these tribes been at war? Twenty? Thirty?

 

(Should be a good brouhaha, though ... :-)

The Vienna Daily

January 18th, 1901

 

Is Austria-Hungary getting the Silent Treatment?

 

It has only been a few short weeks since the Archduke Regent sent envoys to all the major European powers in the hopes of avoiding a possible European war. However, sources inside the Palace say that there have been few replies to the attempts at correspondence, leaving the Archduke disheartened and more than a little paranoid. Rumors of the Archduke's previous bouts with depression seemed to be confirmed today when the Archduke gave the following statement: "Nobody likes me, ev'rybody hates me, I think I'll go and eat worms". Given this revelation, some have questioned whether the Archduke is in fact competent to rule Austria in this potentially troubled time.

 

Anyone seen Nartwak?

Adolph Wilhelm August Karl Friedrich of Nassau-Weilburg

His Royal Highness wishes to plea for the enlightened nations of Europe to seek the common good, and walk the path of peace together, to ultimate prosperity for all.

 

It would be such a shame for any beautiful people to fall out over small issues, especially in this, the modern twentieth century.

 

Grand Duke Adolphe of Luxembourg

DISCLAIMER: Do not take what I write seriously unless it is clearly and in no uncertain terms, declared by me to be meant in a serious and non-humoristic manner. If there is no clear indication, asume the post is written in jest. This notification is meant very seriously and its purpouse is to avoid misunderstandings and the consequences thereof. Furthermore; I can not be held accountable for anything I write on these forums since the idea of taking serious responsability for my unserious actions, is an oxymoron in itself.

 

Important: as the following sentence contains many naughty words I warn you not to read it under any circumstances; botty, knickers, wee, erogenous zone, psychiatrist, clitoris, stockings, bosom, poetry reading, dentist, fellatio and the department of agriculture.

Socialist Radio Vienna

August 23rd, 1901

 

Against the Archduke

 

AUDIO TRANSCRIPT: And so Comrades, we are dragged into this. War. But not class war. Not a war to end exploitation. Not a just, revolutionary war, oh no. The Archduke, that disgusting, bourgeois-sympathysing, aristocratic pig has dragged us into a war against our comrades and brothers! Not content to opress the proletariat of Austria-Hungary, he now spreads his arms to reach for more innocent workers to deprive of what is rightfully theirs! He does not fight for equality, he fights for opression! He fights for exploitation! He fights for his own individualist, petty sense of glory! Some of our comrades have entreated you to refuse to take up arms against our Serbian and Albanian proletarian brothers, and they have urged you to maintain peaceful resistance to the pig-duke and his aristocratic and bourgeois oligarchical tyranny, but I tell you that this is not the time for peaceful resistance! This is a time for revolution! The our comrades in the rest of Europe are with us! The Dialectic is on our side! The dictatorship of the proletariat is within sight! To Arms! To insurrection! TO REVOLUTION!

I don't see France being much of a threat; I told pixies ten hours before the deadline when we were still spamming contributing to a tragically lost thread started by ED'Oh, and he still managed to miss the deadline. :*

It might be a bit daunting to pick up the manual and see all those quite complex diagrams and tactical explanations: I would believe some might find that a little soporific. Still, the GM is here to answer any technical questions ...

So let me get this straight - half the players have gone AWOL?  :rolleyes:

 

 

I chose not to make any moves. France would like to wait this move out to see what happens. Just becasue you guys don't like my tactics, doesn't mean you have to give me a hard time about it...

One billion b-balls dribbling simultaneously throughout the galaxy. One trillion b-balls being slam dunked through a hoop throughout the galaxy. I can feel every single b-ball that has ever existed at my fingertips. I can feel their collective knowledge channeling through my viens. Every jumpshot, every rebound and three-pointer, every layup, dunk, and free throw. I am there.

... Except you didn't log your moves by the deadline.

 

Why not send your "Hold" orders in now? That way, you can change your mind later (or not) and not NMR.

 

If you NMR twice in a row, it's Anarchy for you ...
