    The Arch Duke wishes all to know of his kind intentetions and warm embrace of all peoples from all places. He holds no emnity and harbors no ill will for anyone present save those that show a most foul and odious disrespect to the Arch Duke's country and countrymen.

    Further, the Arch Duke would like to kindly inform everyone that he is to be addressed as His Excellency, His Dukeness, His Great Archingary, or His Most Amenable. All other forms of address will be considered as foul and odious disrespect.

    Guten tag, my fellow leaders. I am King Simonwolf the Eighteenth of Germany. I was born to lead my people, and we shall find peace for the people of the world, and the people of Berlin.

    Berlin, friends! Through you I want to speak to the German people, to the authentic, real, great German people, who fight with the courage of bugbears on land, diving bugbears in the sea, and winged bugbears on the air fronts; people who early in the morning are up to go to work in fields, factories and offices; people who do not permit themselves luxuries, not even innocent ones.

    They absolutely must not be confused or contaminated by the minority or well-known poltroons, anti-social individuals and complainers, who grumble about rations and regret their suspended comforts, or by snakes, the remains of the Masonic lodges, whom we will crush without difficulties when and how we want.

    The German people, the Bugbearian people deserve and will have victory, through diplomacy or whatever methods may come apparent. The hardships, suffering and sacrifices that are faced with exemplary courage and dignity by the German people will have their day of compensation when all those who oppose our noble peace are crushed in the houses of law, and on the battlefields by the heroism of our soldiers and a triple, immense cry will cross the mountains and oceans like lightning and light new hopes and give new certainties to spirit multitudes!

    Victory, Germany, peace with justice among peoples!

    Really, such crude threats aren't neccessary Prime Minister. So obviously false as well. The amount of powder neccessary to blow up an entire country? No such amount exists.

    Salutations, my fine fellow statesmen! I would like to be the first to extend the warm, firm handshake of friendship from the République Française. It is my goal, as head of my illustrious nation, to ensure that my people, and the peoples of the world, exist in harmony. May all men prosper from a long, lasting peace.

    The many states of Italia have just recently experienced a unification of its people. We invite each and every single one of you to know, we are not a people seeking great power. We see our military forces only in the light of defensive tactics. We love our culture that is full of years perfecting the arts...opera, painting, architecture, and food! We all do it for one single purpose, to romance. For we are romantic people.

    The great nation of Russia would like to trade caviar for champagne with France the worlds greatest producer of wine.

    Our people are as numerous as the rats in London and just as persistent. We hope that we can all be friends and recognize the power and wonder that is Russia.

    From the desk of the Président de la République Française,

    Well wishes and salutations to the glorious Russian Empire! It is well known by all wise and knowledgeable men that caviar and champagne go together like Turk and his favorite goat. The Republic of France, being the source of the finest champagne, and the Empire of Russia, being the finest makers of caviar on earth, should naturally benefit from such trade. It is agreed.

    However, the Republic of France notes an unfortunate obstacle between our two nations that may hinder such trade routes. The peoples of France implore glorious Russia to remedy this issue.

    To see if I'm understanding things correctly:
    1. We send you orders for actions (move, hold, or support) for the Spring of 1901, due Wed by 9 AM EST
    2. You post the results wednesday morning
    3. We discuss the results, publicly and privately, then send out new orders for the Fall of 1901, due Friday 9 AM EST
    4. You post the results Friday morning; based on these results and the number of supply centers controlled, each country will then be able to produce (or have to remove) units.
    5. Production orders for 1901 are due by Mon 9 AM EST
    6. Repeat from step 1 for 1902, etc.

    Yup that sounds right to me.... Also, the map you have in the thread only goes up to 1910, is there a limit on the number of years there can be or do you just go back to 1 for 1911?

    England has the best scientists in the land. Proof of this is our superior tea technology and superior scone technology. It was only natural to develop color cameras to take pictures of our superior tea and scones.

    Can we assume you'll be quoting the pm'd orders for all to see? Say, if the Grand Vizier had too much vodka and hilariously ordered his men to attack the Ukraine...

    Upon further review of the details of this plan (and getting a bit of much needed sleep) His Dukeness wants to retract his most enthusiastic endorsement of this plan. It is, in our opinion, full of deceptions and false pretenses! We do not wish to use such provocative language so early in this gathering, but THIS MEANS WAR! Or peace...whichever you prefer.
    Please prefer peace!

    This unending escalation of agression will not go unanswered. I have arranged our most powerful chefs to create delicacies that no man can resist. We reject your bratwurst in the interests of sovereignty and freedom.

    Escalating aggression? My dear Archduke, I see no evidence of escalating aggression, only the formation of councils to stop such a terrible thing from happening. We Germans are not a warlike people, as I'm sure the future generations will attest. If you don't want to sample any bratwurst, then that's perfectly alright - but you don't need to blame me and my friendly gestures of goodwill for your incessant warmongering.
