Thread: [Forum Game] - World in Revolution: 1861

    The difference is that your enslaved are being forced to serve, whilst the freed slaves of the north are flocking to recruitment stations of their own accord. Furthermore, your statement on "Yankee" oppression seems a bit off, was it not the Confederacy that fired the first shots of this war?

    It is not the Confederacy that has drawn out this war, but the Union. If the Union now feels it has the justification to use "total war" tactics, the Confederacy has it double fold. The Army of Northern Virginia already stands upon the soil of Pennsylvania, with the lush fields and booming industries lying before us with little opposition. Georgia will be avenged, and the last Army standing between Jackson and the heartland of the Union will be crushed.

    Our slaves are not being forces to serve. They do not have to enlist. They are volunteers, and by volunteering they are gaining their freedom and joining the fight to defend their homes that men like Sherman are destroying. We may have fired the first shots, but we did so to end the oppression of the North that had been obvious for some time. You cannot deny it, and neither can Lincoln.

    Please, enlighten us as to your terrible oppression from Mr Lincoln, and the Union.

    The case of the Confederacy echoes that of the Irish traitors and rebels. Both have rebelled claiming to be oppressed, and yet both were fairly represented. What then is the issue? Simply put, their view is not the majority, so, acting most unlike gentlemen, they rebel and try and push their perverse and disgusting agenda through violent means.

    Furthermore, His Majesty's Government should like to announce that through the process of mediation between the Kingdom of the Netherlands and the Kingdom of Belgium, we have managed to negotiate an end to the conflict suitable to both parties. We hereby present the document in the open, so that the signatories may publicly declare their support for it. We shall also be discussing with the German Empire a matter brought up by the Belgians, in regards to the enforcement of the Treaty.

    We were represented by "Irish" landlords and by "Irish" we mean English.

    A large number of MPs for Ireland in Westminster are Irish. Furthermore, these MPs are elected by the Irish people. If the Irish people did not want this representation, then they should not have voted as such.

    Ottoman Empire


    Ottoman Empire congratulates both Benelux nations with speedy resolution of war. Furthermore we are happy to see, that Great Britain once again is acting as a keeper of peace, despite her's current troubles.

    We too, are doing our part, to restore peace and stability in Europe. We firmly believe that fed, clothed and employed citizens do not revolt. We have signed trade agreement with France, to stimulate flow of goods in both directions. We have opened our universities to French citizens, so they can learn more about customs of Levant and we can embrace Western way of thinking. Furthermore Ottoman Empire will invest 100 000£ in French factories for mutual benefit of both parties.

    We hope, that our actions will speak louder than words. Turks aren't at the gates of Europe. Ottoman Empire is the gate to the Europe.

    Signed, Sultan Abdülmecid.

    Great Britain? The keeper of peace? They started a pointless war against Qing and Hawaii! How is that peaceful?

    Qing insulted us, and as such we were forced to defend our honour as any true Gentleman would. The Hawaiians started our conflict with them, by savagely consuming a foraging party from one the ships sent as a diplomatic mission to them.


    OOC: Qing insulted me, what else was I meant to do?

    OOC: You really have no idea of 19th century diplomacy do you? I did ask, deliberately in such a way that Qing would refuse and I would get a CB.

    OOC: Technically I never refused I just couldn't apologise in a way you wanted me to so you never got a CB so you got stacks of Infamy and your people view the Government in Britain hate for being aggressive warmongers and so you'll lose the election get kicked out and someone more sensible will come in (In game at least though even with a change of government it'll likely do nothing to affect your behaviour.)

    OOC: You refused to apologise, not my fault if you got attacked over it. Not to mention that you're a savage, so I don't particularly need any other reason to take your land.

    OOC: No you didn't outright refuse but you didn't accept either, and anyway even if you had accepted the government would make it sound like you had refused. He wouldn't get stacks of Infamy and as for losing the next election this probably just made him more popular.

    OOC: You said some rubbish about a peasant with a crown being above His Majesty's Government. I took that as a refusal.

    Anyway, enough OOC.
