    Genesis of Empires, a somewhat different Diplomacy game that I'm DMing, has two openings as a result of dropped players. We're using non-standard start locations, and the two openings are for a North African empire and a Japanese empire. Feel free to post in the thread or message me if you'd like to take over for one of them.

    To whom it may concern,

    I am hopping on a bus home this afternoon, where I will remain until Sunday night. While at home I will have limited computer access and be very busy. However, I will do my best to check in once a day (or maybe every other) to answer any needed correspondence.

    Not that anybody really talks to me anymore.

    Japanese Find Invitation to Atlantic Yacht Club, Under England's Name

    "We are happy to have finally resolved this dispute, and shall begin sending in our ships to the Western Hemisphere effective immediately."
    When confronted with the fact that England's name was on the yachting registration, the Japanese foreign ministry's diabolical legal team provided precident:
    "Simply look to the French transference of their Atlantic rights to the Italians. The British clearly aren't using theres properly just as the French weren't before there's were repossessed; there's no reason why it should go to waste."

    That almost went as well as I hoped, except for the Franco-Italian alliance. What was with that? How many times is france gonna fall for the BFF line? Or are they just that desperate to get Brest back for 1 year? You realize that even if you do take it, you still don't get a build.

    Being in the Atlantic Yachting Club Hurts
    Apparently, the Chinese understood Japan's membership in the Atlantic Yachting Club to count as being a European power, and has launched a semi-devastating assault on our nation. We will naturally attempt to respond in kind, after having cancelled our subscription to Atlantic Yachting Weekly.

    This is your unofficial 5-hour warning for Fall 1905 Orders!

    Hong Kong Morning Post

    Chinese Forces Move to Secure Japan
    Chinese forces have been moving to secure Japanese possession after the bulk of their forces have moved to assualt Europe. A highly-placed government source reported that China had been contacted by numerous rebel groups in Japanese held territories for assistance. China plans to extend its protection to former Japanee holdings, which will benefit both our glorious nation and the peoples we will be freeing.

    Korea Liberated!

    The Chinese 5th Army entered Seoul and Pusan this spring with minimal resistance from Japanese forces. The liberating army was met with spontaneous displays of affection and was feted with kimchee and other Korean "delicacies." When asked for comment, Sergeant Major Li Xiua replied, "It was ... um .... good, yeah, really good." With the return of Korea to Chinese protection, military officials expect all of North East Asia to be united under the China's enlighted rule.

    Peking Observer

    Chinese Diplomats in Tokyo Feared Dead
    In the past months, China has been unable to contact its diplomatic staff in Japan, who are feared dead. It appears that the Japanese government, frustated by its impotence and its imminent destruction by Chinese forces, has once again lashed out irresponibily. The Chinese government has dispatched a fleet to enter the undefended Toyko Bay and retrieve our fallen and to enact punitive measures against those responsible.

    The waves of Chinese propaganda and entertainingly implausible lies flooding out into a completely unconvinced world have reached an all-time high. In other news, several wealthy Indian landowners are reported to be taking bets on who will be the next target of this ridiculous and absurd news network.

    A nep S A del - cal
    F mad - bob
    A sha - lao

    Aren't those your orders from Spring 1905? I don't mind either way, because then I'll get ira which was my original intention or cal as shown.

    Hong Kong Morning Post - November 30, 1905

    Invasion of Japan Launched!
    After units of the Chinese army prepared the way by seizing anchorages in Korea and Vladivostok, the 5th Imperial Marine detachment liberated the historic city of Kyoto and its surrounding prefectures in a daring amphibious invasion. Extreme care was taken to safeguard the innumerable treasures of the city and with only token resistance civilian casualties were light. With Kyoto as our base of operations, China will swiftly move to complete the invasion of Honshu.

    Chinese Denounce Turkish, Large Windfall Reported by Chinese Government
    Reports from Peking showed that in an unlikely twist of events, the Chinese press has targeted the Turkish Empire. In an unrelated story, the Chinese government has reported a huge budget surplus, driven my vst gambling revenues from surprised Indian landowners.

    Indian Propaganda Reaches New, Even Crappier Level (If That Were Even Possible)
    The Indian government continues to criticize the Chinese press for their reporting on Chinese war efforts. In response, the Chinese army has launched Operation Free Press. General Po Tzu stated: "The Chinese government takes freedom of the press very seriously. With the problem brought to light by the Indian press, we feel that the only way to restore integrity to our nation's press is to merge with that of the Indians." While reports are still confused, the operation has met initial success with the acquisition of either the Tehran Times or the Calcutta Courier.

    Shoot, you're right. Nevermind then, J_Muller. I'm just an idiot

    But no, if I'd done as I'd intended, you wouldn't have gotten either. I'd have done exactly what I did, and then instead supported one of the moves into cal.

    Indians Were Next Target of Chinese Propaganda
    Though the odds weren't that good, many Indian Gamblers made a small profit when the next article of the Chinese Rag reached the presses. A very few argued that Turkey had been the target, though these arguments were soon dropped when it became clear that there was no actual propaganda directed by china.

    List of Great World Powers

    The Encyclopedia Vienna released its yearly update of the top 10 world powers. In order, they are:

    China - 19 Supply Centers - This monstrous Middle Kingdom is no longer middle. Perhaps they should rename themselves Top Kingdom. Seriously. Someone's gotta stop these maniacs.
    Italy - 15 Supply Centers - Seeing as much territory as the Roman Empire had, the King of Italy declared a national day of holiday and stabinating the Germans.
    Austria- 10 Supply Centers - Even though the Prinz was asleep at the helm for a season, the Austrians are seeing no slowdown in their conquests. It ain't so bad at third.
    Germany - 10 Supply Centers - Despite the loss of their French holdings, the German Empire is still holding strong at third. Only time will tell how they hold up against the Italian onslaught. Moscow was a nice acquisition. I hope the soldiers stationed on the Eastern front enjoy borscht.
    Japan - 5 Supply Centers - Losing a good chunk of their holdings this last year has cost the Japanese dearly in rank. At fifth place, this middling power had better think of something quick if they are to stop the Chinese from rolling through their islands.
    India - 5 Supply Centers - Sultan Wamp is doing his damndest to hold off the Chinese attackers, but unless a tactical miracle comes through, this power may not last long.
    France - 3 Supply Centers - Shouldn't we be calling them the English now?
    Russia - 2 Supply Centers - The Russian homeland looks more like a Jackson Pollock painting than an actual country. With Austria, Germany and China controlling more of Mother Russia than the Russians, the future is bleak, much like Siberia.
    Turkey - 2 Supply Centers - Turkey's former position at 6 supply centers has been cut to a third of its peak. The end is near for the Sultan, and no amount of begging will continue his career.
    England - 1 Supply Centers - The unfortunate English seem to be the first power to be eliminated. Shame. If the Chinese ever open their tyrannical government to elections, perhaps the Queen can take over as number one.

    Yeah, I'm only missing one, but they're both important given the steamrolling that's going on in Asia and Europe at the hands of China and Italy, respectively.

    Austrian Suggestions Laughable


    Recent news reports out of the Austro-Hungarian Empire have labeled our great nation as "maniacs" and called for our "tyrannical" government to allow free elections. This comment was met with derision in official government circles. Foreign Minister Han Xiang Zi said, "China has been ruled through the divine guidance of the Sons of Heaven since before their empire was even a gleam in some barbarian's eyes. I would have thought Austria-Hungary would clearly recognize the need for a strong central government when ruling over a large and diverse population. Regardless, it is hypocritical of the repressive Austro-Hungarian monarchy to criticize whatever faults our system might have. Like of the stuff that comes out of Vienna, I'm sure this outburst was directed from Rome. "

    In fact, it is this reporter's opinion that China is the most generous great power in dealing with its partner states. We only require unrestricted basing rights, free and preferential trade agreements, and the signing of a mutual defense pact. In contrast to the so-called "progressive" European powers, China makes no demands on the social or religious practices of others. It is this advantage that has allow us to see great success and force second-rate powers like Austria to hurl venomous threats at our nation.

    Editorial - Chinese News is the Most Boring in the World
    Seriously! It's not what they're saying - that's pretty typical - it's that everything they've said is the same. There isn't the slightest ounce of creativity in their news, no witty repartee.

    I long for the days when a country would invade another and instead of shows of machismo, there were talks of invasion causing babies to be made.

    It's like I've always said: If you can't say something funny, don't say anything at all.

    I believe that it is invading Turkey that makes babies. . . which explains why Austria has increased in numbers recently.

    OoC: I forget how many people were in that game.
