    Excellent, Russian foreign minister Shishnarfniev will now be accepting correspondence from the other great powers regarding the future of Europe.

    Send all appropriate correspondence to the Kremlin (PM box), and we hope we will be able to visit your capitals to finalize negotiations. Please be considerate regarding our traditional Russian work schedule of relaxing on weekends.

    Let the diplomacy begin!

    News flash:
    In an bizarre twist of events, the Italian government was seized today by a one-eyed squirrel. Already amassing a sizable stash of half eaten bagels from local university campuses, the new leader pledged not to abuse his power too much. 'El Presidente', as he apparently prefers to be addressed, revealed an ambitious plan for the coming years of running about aimlessly at great speeds, sniffing things on the ground that might be food, and as time permits, conquering the world. With the bulk of his plan thus specified, the tree-dweller vowed not lose sight of the important issues, such as education, tax reform, and anything shiny.

    Germany

    Kaiser Wilhelm I has died unexpectantly in his sleep. No evidence of foul play was found, and there is no evidence to suggest otherwise. The German people are no longer under a controlling tight iron fist and have elected a new Kaiser, this is Kaiser Stimpius I and follows is his short statement.

    "Welcome one and all, the new German government is under a new Regeime, if you wish to discuss foreign policy with me please make your way to our Consultante situated in your Capital City and send me a message electronically {PM}."

    In a surprising move, the Turkish peoples enacted a coup, installing what appeared to be a homeless man as their leader. They thought with a "puppet" sultan, they could then become a free state, and be happy. They were wrong. The homeless man immediately jerked the power back to the throne and named himself the Sage of Laputa. The people realized that with such a strong leader, their future knew no bounds. With the people's support behind him, the Sage prepared for the future, and opened the embassies...

    Austria-Hungary:

    In a bizzare state of affairs involving copious amounts of Captain Steve's Banana Salve, the country of Austria-Hungary has been seized by a 14-year old boy, who has completely overthrown the previous administration, renaming the country as "Connoria". He then immediately set about to the current threat of world war.

    Connoria/Austria-Hungary is now open for diplomacy.

    London: With the government still mourning the death of Queen Victoria, communications within the British foreign services have been muted. Rumors are circulating that policy decisions are less and less frequently being made on Downing Street, but are being increasingly dictated by a strange figure operating on the fringes of British political circles, the elusive Sir John Hamstard-Forriver III, Esq. No one is certain where this enigmatic gentleman came by his influence, but talk has it that he has already begun taking over negotiations for the Foreign Office wholesale in spite of his lack of an official appointment.

    Moscow Tribune

    Geneva Times suspected of undue anti-Russian bias by Kremlin
    A nameless Romanov noble suggested an ulterior motive may lie behind the Geneva Times' decision to label the movement of the Russian army from Warsaw into Galicia as an invasion of Austria-Hungary: "It's not even a supply center, and it lies on the flank of the historically Russian territory of Rumania! Most Russian Tsars would have ordered exactly the same without second thought! Where else would it go? The Ukraine? That's lousy country this time of year."

    Confusion reigns as Moscow army prefers vodka to war
    In a sight all too familiar in Russia, the Moscow army failed to depart from that region despite orders to the contrary. Many soldiers were seen imbibing in that grandest of Russian alcohols rather than marching towards the Crimea. "It's a scandal," remarked one Muscovite, "there are perfectly good territories in the Balkans they could have attempted to seize." He went on to suggest a miscommunication between generals might have been responsible. Foreign minister Shishnarfniev, nominally in charge of military operations, could not be reached for comment.

    Military News

    Turkish Fleet Fails to Sail!
    The Home Fleet of Turkey failed to depart home because of a previously unexpected problem. The Admiral Adher gets seasick. "Yes, I'm absolutely lousy at sea. In fact I've only been once, it was awful. How did I get this job? When the government was reforming and the Sage of Laputa came to lead us, I just kind of showed up one day, and have continued since. I thought it was a cushy job, no way did I expect to actually sail," responded the admiral to our inquires. He has since been replaced.

    301st Brigade Tours Capital!
    Yes, the 301st Brigade has come to see the history, culture, and wonder of our own country's capital. The Brigade arrived in Constantinople early in the season and expects to stay for quite a while. One soldier remarked "Oh yeah, this is great, every day I send my kids another postcard. Being here makes me proud to be a Turk."

    201st Brigade Kicked Out of Capital!
    Meanwhile, Turkey's other armed forces were banned from Constantinople for repeated reports of drunkenness and mischief. Bored and hung over, they conquered Bulgaria, yet can't quite explain why.

    A note to all players: When you send in your moves, please label them SPE, (Season) (Year). This makes finding them when I put together the map much easier, especially because I'm playing in another PBPM game on these boards, and last time I almost got the moves mixed up.

    Thanks!

    Note: It's 30 minutes after deadline as I'm posting this, and I have yet to recieve French orders. As I gave ample reminder of the move due date, barring some miracle PM I get as I type this, France is in Civil Disorder. If this persists into next turn, I will find a new player for France.

    England: F nth Convoys A yor -> den
    England: F nwg -> nwy

    Convoy path taken: yor->nth->den.
    France:

    No order for unit at Mid-Atlantic Ocean. Hold order assigned.
    No order for unit at Paris. Hold order assigned.
    No order for unit at Spain. Hold order assigned.

    France: F mao Holds

    Moscow Tribune: Fall 1901 Edition

    Russia grows by securing Traditionally Russian Territories of Sweden, Rumania
    The Tsar was heard to congratulate his foreign minister on the bloodless liberation of two traditional Russian provinces. Foreign diplomats were observed to wince at the Tsar's lack of command of geography.

    Russian nobles to attend mandatory geography lessons
    After an anonymous Romanov was quoted as saying, "Border, I didn't see any border," with regards to the Spring occupation of Galicia, the Foreign Minister has prevailed upon the Tsar to require his nobles to learn the boundaries of the respective nations of Europe, that future confusion might not occur. The Tsar of course exempted himself on grounds he already knew enough. This causes our reporter to worry about the Tsar's recent declaration that he intends to "liberate" the traditionally Russian Switzerland.

    France in Disarray
    France apparently cannot get an order in on time, leading to some Russian citizens to gloat about their own government's promptness. Others suggest that Foreign Minister Shishnarfniev is merely lazy enough that he can't be bothered to stay late to write orders after the end of business hours.

    Post - '01 Rankings

    1. Russia (6 sc). Russia managed to pick up two empty supply centers this turn, making the most powerful nation on the board.

    2. England, Turkey, Germany (5 sc). England has made unexpected gains in Scandinavia, in provences that often go to Russia or Germany. Germany has conquered the lowlands with no French or English opposition, and Turkey now controls half of the Balkan states, with very little opposition from Austria-Hungary.

    3. Austira, Italy, France (4 sc). Austria and Italy appear to be at each other's throats, with Italy taking Tyrolia in Spring '01. France would have been ranked with the second-tier countries, but a mixup with communication to it's generals caused their units to not move. With Germany bearing down on them in the east, can they recover?
