    Graf Kuno von Sebodenstein gratefully accepts this highest honor and the high responsibility it carries and will his do his utmost to protect the German Empire from all threats. Long live the Kaiser!
    He also reminds all the powers of Europe that he's new in the European diplomacy sphere, having just come back from an expedition to the sources of the Nile. So all powers that wish to uphold any old secret treaties he may not even know about or propose new ones, are welcome to cable the German Foreign Office.

    WHY TRUST A GERMAN

    WHY
    And one day we will die and our ashes will fly from the aeroplane over the sea
    But for now we are young let us lay in the sun and count every beautiful thing we can see......

    Backstabbing Russians, gee. I'm out anyway, I'd completely forgotten about this and only sent in orders an hour or two before deadline. I'm only going to get busier in the next week or two, and this takes so much more time than werewolf or BSG.

    If you want a picture of the future, imagine an episode of Mr. Bean—forever.

    With you to get both Berlin then and Sweden later?

    Yeah, I don't think it really counts as a backstab if you're loyal to the alliance you signed up for rather than move against your allies at the first opportunity.

    Oh, wait, that's exactly what you would do


    Error in war on error on line 1.

    No, it's only what I would do when supposed allies are refusing to comunicate their intentions. Or indeed communicate much at all. Generally I favour picking an alliance and sticking at it, but here I've been left stranded by other Great Britain players and by a lack of replies. Case in point, I tried to set up an alliance against Italy for a tie. No response, stick to their plan anyway, and it turns out that one of the alliance "members" had told Italy I was going to attack them. So then I go back to Italy to try and stop a runaway of the other countries who didn't want a tie, and suddenly they want one.

    All I've done is try and pick up the pieces long enough that no one power gets ahead, but no one wanted to play nicely.

    Not that what I'd usually play like matters much.

    Did Russia stab England? Did England stab Russia? I really can't tell.

    None ever come to chat in Istanbul...we've got tokai and delights...they're delightful, it's in the name!

    Traditionally, England and Turkey keep up a steady but not torrential stream of correspondence since their interests rarely conflict, and they can both benefit from sharing intelligence.

    I'm newer at Diplomacy than he is

    But yeah, with all the civil disorder in Great Britain we probably deserved it. It's game over for Italy and us now.

    Regardless, what provinces can F Den legally retreat to? Ber? Swe? Anything else and it's probably better getting disbanded.

    You're right, we don't exactly have overlapping spheres. Although in this case the deal I proposed to you, Austria-Hungary and Russia would have favoured you much more than what you actually got - I had you down as getting Rome. Instead, Russia is cutting you and Austria-Hungary off from the SCs in Western Europe. With a strong German ally, they could even have the power to turn on you rather than take the immediate draw, and sneak a win that way.

    Legal retreats are:

    Sweden
    Skaggerak
    North Sea
    Helgoland Bight

    I don't think there are any others.
