    OOC: There goes Ottoman dream of warm water ports in Pacific

    Edit. Changed my mind.


    We would like to offer 38 gold bullions for Spanish pearl of Orient, otherwise known as Palau as well as trade agreement. This island will be first of many Ottoman possesions in Pacific, establishing base of operation for trade and cooperation with China, Japan and Netherland East indies.

    Osmanlı Imparatorluğunun ihtişamını !

    Signed, Sultan Abdülmecid.

    Ottoman Empire is determined to get claim this seemingly unimportant island to honor memory of Suleiman the Magnificent and his achievements. Therefore we will offer 45 gold bullions for Palau.

    OOC: I think offer is for all "Archipelago", not just Palau island itself. If not I will withdraw my bet as Palau without Peleliu and Angaur islands are worthless for my goal. Holy trinity is not to be broken.

    OOC: Well offer is for "Palau", not for "Palau island" so I was assuming I was betting for whole thing.

    OOC : I will be assuming that Spanish holdings on Palau comprise the entire archipelago, noting how the update said something along the lines of "a lot of islands in the Pacific were colonized by Spain". Guam is a single island, and 2 isn't exactly a lot. And yes, the entire archipelago is for sale, although, if countries want to make a joint offer, with the objective of splitting the archipelago, or even the islands themselves, between the involved parties, I shall allow it without any problems.

    (Multi-national base on Guam anyone? Join the 12-nation consortium and get your small bit of colonial empire, at low cost!)


    Offers for Guam

    Denmark : 250 gold
    Colombia : 90 gold

    Offers for Palau
    Ottoman Empire : 55 gold
    Belgium : 50 gold

    Offers for both Guam and Palau
    UK : 120 gold

    Adding up the offers from Guam and Palau, UK has been outbid. Probably wise from Doom, seeing how he has a Communist rebellion to handle... (by the way, long time since we got a mini-update on that conflict...)

    What this means is that no one technically voted on the first day and we have all been auto-lynched. Since none of us were following ghost rules from that point forward, we are all banned from werewolf for life. - Cymsdale
