    Default Madness? This is Diplomacy!

    Current Turn: Fall 1904
    Current Deadline: 10pm GMT on March 7th

    Current Map:


    ---------------------------------

    Spring 1901



    nolispeThe Grimmace - Austria
    DakeyrasMurksa - England
    zorba1994 - France
    Kyrinthic - Germany
    4is111 - Italy
    GnomeGninjas - Russia
    Grytorm - Turkey


    Alternates - The Grimmace

    ---

    A few notes:

    I'd like everyone to check in within the next 48 hours to confirm you'll be playing. If not your position will go to somebody else. It's also a good chance to tell others how you can be contacted!

    Turns will generally be six days with adjustment phase usually being a day.

    Orders should be submitted via PM in a clear, understandable format. So long as I know the three key things - which unit, what action and where to - then orders will be processed properly. Any indecipherable or incorrect orders I have at time of processing will simply not go through. If you could put "Madness" somewhere in the title of the PM to indicate it's relating to this game, that'd be a great help!

    I believe that's everything! Hope you guys enjoy!

    My foreign legions are ready.

    As for contacting (oh right, that's the game's name...), PMs I check at least once a day plus whenever I bounce over to browse the forum. Email is checked almost constantly. gamecentercrew "at" gmail

    Gah! Third time in a row that I'm Austria! Also, the title should be:
    "Madness? THIS! IS! DIPLOMACY!"

    ***

    The Archduke was tired. The Vienna military parade had been going on all day, and after this his generals wanted to hold a strategic meeting, which if the last few were anything to go by would devolve into lots of drinking and singing until daybreak. Oh, yes. Lots of the drinking.
    Sighing, Archduke Franz stood up, and gave a single regal wave to the troops below, to thunderous applause. Sitting back down, he skim-read one of the messages his advisor had prepared for him that had beeen lying on the table next to him for an hour or so. Apparently a group of people in funny costumes had appeared in the main square earlier today, murdered two random people, and vanished. A failed painter and an embittered Serbian nationalist. Ah well. These things happened. It wouldn't change anything in the big picture.
    He poured himself another drink. It was going to be a long day.

    The great British empire signing in. best way to contact me would be to p.m me on here
    Over the centuries, mankind has tried many ways of combating the forces of evil...prayer, fasting, good works and so on. Up until Doom, no one seemed to have thought about the double-barrel shotgun. Eat leaden death, demon...

    The Grimmace, leader of the great nation of Alternates is reporting for duty. Funny, I don't remember that one...guess I should've payed more attention in geography. And I don't see my color on the map, so I'll just assume I get all the countries no-one else has and that my units are in stealth mode.

    Right behind you.

    Default Re: Madness? This is Diplomacy!

    Sorry, this is sort of random from someone who isn't playing, but we've got one or more (not quite sure yet) vacancies in the chaos variant of diplomacy I'm running. Basically it's like this game only in the beginning there were 34 players each with 1 supply center. We're now 2 years in and have 22 players but a couple have dropped off the face of the map.

    So, if you're interested (and haven't been playing in the game already), PM me and I'll let you know if I've got a spot for you. If you're too late, I'll keep you in mind and you can have first crack at any new spots that open up.

    k, getting out of here.
    It says signature, but when I tried to sign my name, I just got pen on my computer screen.

    Diplomacy:
    GM - The Lyapunov Affair
    Turkey - Fly Like a Butterfly
    French Austrians - Realpolitik

    Want to play diplomacy? Want to GM a game? Want to learn what the game is? Good.

    Does this mean the grimmace is taking over turkey instead of grytorm?

    Ah, no, it means I'm an idiot and can't read.

    Grytorm has one more day to appear. Orders are due on that date regardless, but if he hasn't turned up then Grimmace takes over.

    Sorry Grimmace, I am here. My computer is not working so I dont have anything bookmarked.

    Edit
    Sorry for the confusion caused by some of my PMs, for some reason I reffered to myself as Austria. I don't know why.

    FORTY-EIGHT HOUR WARNING

    Also a general note. While I've spotted this and it's easily fixed for those that have already submitted orders, in future could you make it absolutely clear which province you're moving FROM and which province you're moving TO? Just using a dash between two provinces could mean either way, and in future I won't be spending the time to figure out what you intended. I'm willing to for the first time, simply because it's obvious as everyone's in fixed positions.

    If I mislabled a unit in my orders will it be invalidated?
    Also if I make some changes shoul I resend everything.

    This turn, no. In future, probably. I'll be putting orders straight into the program (with the possibility of minor editing to make the format compatible), I won't be checking each and every order for validity. If it isn't a valid order, the program won't process it and your unit will be autoassigned a hold order.

    Also, that would be preferable yes.
