    Kaiser Vexen of the grand Empire of Germany is ready and willing to receive emissaries from all nations at this time. I warn all nations of attempted deceipt or treachory as Germany's intelligence agency are quite adept, having already intercepted foreign messages intended for others.

    OoC: feel free to PM me, I prefer E-mail if that is acceptable. if so let me know in a PM and i will send you my E-mail. Also for any Newbies i prefer all messages have "Diplomacy-OE&P" in the subject it also makes it easier if you list your nation as well i.e. "Diplomacy -OE&P Germany to Italy"

    Greetings! The magnificent Kingdom of Italy stands ready to take its rightful place in the world through negotiation and - should it come to it - force. If you wish to avoid use of force, the Italian Embassy stands open to receive diplomats from all corners of the earth.

    As far as the schedule goes, retreats and builds should be separate deadlines, at least 24 hours apart, because sometimes retreat orders can influence build orders, either directly or indirectly.

    Also, if you need any help, I'll gladly help. I've done the whole thing several times. If you even want to just post all the orders at the appropriate deadlines, I'll adjudicate them and post maps and take care of pretty much everything else.

    ((Ah, true.

    I've edited the schedule to allow for this and adjusted when moves are due to give more time between retreats and builds. Everybody make sure you're familiar with it.))

    From the archives:

    Supper Powers?

    Berlin was in a state of confusion this morning over a recent Turkish radio broadcast. "Who are these Western 'Supper Powers' of which you speak?" We eventually concluded that it must be us Germans. England would be more of a 'Tea-Time Power.' Everyone knows France is the land of all-day breakfast. The last time we checked, Italians subsist only on espresso and chocolates. And it is widely acknowledged that neither the Austrians nor the Russians feed their peasants.

    War with Turkey makes babies?

    German intelligence has discovered a hidden message in the recent Turkish radio broadcast. "War with Turkey makes babies, and nice girls cry." While we knew that nice girls cry, we were previously unaware that war with Turkey makes babies. We will be researching this claim further. We pray for everyone's sake that it is untrue; otherwise Turkey will likely be seeing a lot of declarations of war pass its way this season. We will also be sending a police unit to the Turkish Emperor to help him catch the dissidents that put this terrible message on the air.

    OoC: Yeah, I'm a jerk. But I'm a funny jerk, or at least I like to think so.

    The Paris Report

    President Jaques Sol mobilized the French Republican Army and Navy today, surprising the western powers at large. When questioned by reporters, he made this statement:

    "The people of France have been upstaged for far too long. We now wish to make our name even more prominent with expansion. Any resistance to our growth will be rutlessly retaliated, leaving no one behind. The might of France will become renowned across the world."

    Though I would like to point out that, though incorrect, the comma in that sentence does not allow for the interpretation that moody used, hilarious as the ensuing commentary may have been.
