    India Can’t Count -
    Actually, we have no contest with the world ranking of supply centers, only a minor discrepancy has been noted. Russia did not lose 3 supply centers this year, they only lost two. Norway was never controlled by Russia only held for a season

    Germany Preparing to Celebrate Christmas 1902
    Kaiser Vexen is reported to be very excited about the thought of receiving another pewter figure for Christmas. “I am hoping for a little tank this year,” he said to reporters, “but I won’t be that disappointed if I get another little boat. If I do, I think I will put my sheep on it, than I can have a ‘ewe-boat’.”
    When military officials asked about the sudden invasion of Sweden and the resulting war with Russia, they responded; “We never really do know what the Kaiser is going to have us do next. But, seriously, is it really that hard to explain, I mean come on . . . It is Sweden. Let us just say that we plan on having a lot more fun this winter here than we did sightseeing in Denmark last year.”

    Turkish Delight
    Germany would like to extend our congratulations to Turkey regarding their impressive combat tactics last season. They were surrounded on all sides by enemies and many speculated they would be taking the brunt of the losses this year. However, a stunning move on their behalf and much to our ‘delight’ they managed to take as many SC as they lost and remain a contender in the region for next year.

    Drunken Czar orders invasion of Austria

    "You an' me? We go waaaaaay back. You know wha'," said the Czar, throwing a bottle of Vodka against the wall, and then placing an arm affably around the Serf's reporter, "You," he said, with utter seriousness, "are my best frien'."

    The Czar then had his ministers of war executed.

    Russian army takes heavy losses on all fronts

    When pressed for comment, the Czar said simply, "S***."

    Russia leads the world in counting!

    Despite their drunken ruler and dirt-napping ministry of war, Russian elementary schools are working at feverish pitches. "We lost four supply centers this winter," said little Evet, finger in her nose.

    (Rumania, Sweden, Sevestapol and Vladivostok)

    England, India Defy Japan

    This Fall English fleets in the Malay Sea escorted Indian fleets into the island nation of Java in a shocking act of cooperation and defiance of Japanese naval supremacy. We predict that despite this isolated success, India will fall quickly to the combined might of China and Japan, due largely to High Priest Wampdhi's neglect of his Eastern front.

    It's Good To Be The King ... But Not So To Be The Czar

    Russia, the former world leader in military strength, has experienced a tragic fall this year and now is in a tie for third, with enemies on all fronts.

    Italian Naval Supremacy Effects Fall of France

    Thanks to the excellence of our irresistibly attractive navy, we look forward to liberating Marseilles this year as well as protecting Morocco from French imperialism.

    Kaiser Vexen to PM Dwayna: "You've Got A Friend In Me"

    The good Kaiser has allowed the down-and-out English Prime Minister to play in his reindeer games this past year, having her assist in his attack on Russia. It remains to be seen what assistance Germany will give England against the occupying French, although German forces do seem prepared to make a devastating strike against French interests. Our friendship bracelets are standing by.

    Austrian Homeland "Bristling" With Guns\

    In response to recent (laughably silly) Russian incursion, the Austrian military has experienced serious buildup in armaments and budgets. The Prinz had this to say:

    "No vodka-drunk maniacal Russian is going to incur on our territory! Onward, brave Austrians, to victory!"

    In related news, France is about to get owned. Hard.

    The Geneva Gazette
    Due to the breakout of several major hostilities over the last two years, all nations have undergone a massive buildup in armaments. Here are the biggest troop-raisers.

    Military Rankings 1903!
    1. China: With a grand total of 9 fleets or armies, fueled by rapid expansion of Chinese territory, the Middle Kingdom now commands the largest military in the world.
    2. Germany: The recent capture of Sweden has given Germany the supplies to further enlarge its already massive military, giving it command of the largest armed force on the European continent.
    2. Italy: Dominance of Africa has given Italy the colonies it needs to bring its military up to par with the world's best. The Italian armed forces are tied with Germany in size, but with colonial holdings to defend, the amount of force the Italians can actually bring to bear is limited, though still impressive.
    2. India: The seizure of Iran from the Ottoman Empire and its acquisition of territory in Southeast Asia has pushed India up to the tie for second place. It commands the second largest army in Asia.
    3. Japan: The invasion of Russian territory in Asia and the addition of new Pacific island possessions has fueled the rise of the Japanese Navy to the third largest military in Asia, and the largest navy in the world.
    4. France, Austria, Russia, and the Ottoman Empire: Vying for fourth place with six military groups each are the French Third Republic, the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the Ottoman Empire, and the Russian Empire. A myriad of battles and clashes has placed the future ranking of these nations in doubt. Further developments will most certainly lead to changes to this list, as territories trade hands and armies clash with the thunder of battle.
    5. England: The beleaguered British Empire has taken some serious knocks, but cooperation with India has enabled it to keep its Pacific possessions, and with apparently allied German and Italian ships poised to battle France in the North and Mediterranean Seas, the future may hold good things for the stubborn English.

    Uncle Sigmund's Story Time

    "Let me tell you about the next season," the King told his nieces and nephews. "Russia will continue to shrink, much like the Tsar's testicles. We will retake the province of Klug from marauding drunken Russian vacationers -- 'leafers,' we call them. The Turks will shift their forces around, remaining the same size as they are now. The French will continue to be slapped around like the silly children they are, and soon we will not have to deal with their unwashed royalty and snail entrees. And we, the mighty Austrians, will rise above and equal the Japanese in might. Fear not, my progeny, it is only temporary that we are so far down the power ladder."

    Newsflash!

    I'm looking for two replacement players for my Diplomacy game All Quiet on the PM Front. The openings are for France and India. We are playing a blind variant wherein - to offer a simple description - you never see a universal map posted to the thread, but rather you are sent a report after each season indicating the success or failure of your moves as well as the locations of some foreign units based on lines of sight and spying. I obviously can't say publicly how either of those powers are doing, but it's Fall 1902 and they're both still alive. If you commit to the job, I'll fill you in. I know that's asking you to take the job "blind" but hey, I guess that fits the spirit of the game.

    Good candidates should:
    • Not care what position their inherited power will be in, but rather love the game and enjoy playing even the "fixer-uppers" (not that either of those powers is or is not a fixer-upper, just that you don't know until you've taken the offer)
    • Have a working knowledge of the rules of Diplomacy or have a serious commitment to learn them; a link to the rulebook can be found in the thread, I think, but I can supply one upon request if it is not
    • Have a working knowledge of the geographical changes of the Youngstown map, on which the game is being played; or, be prepared to read about them and familiarize yourself with the map
    • Be comfortable playing in a variant wherein you have limited information


    The positions will be filled on a first-come first-served basis. I listed those criteria not because I will turn anyone away, but rather so that the expectations are clear. PM me if you are interested. You may indicate a preference for France or India, but if you are the second person to respond, you're getting whichever power the first person didn't get.
