    May your fleets find favorable winds, Britain.

    Keep your ugly faces out of Asia you russian bastards!

    Treacherous Russian pigs! We shall stand your foul smelling betrayals and
    your uncouth and uneducated culture no longer.

    is somebody going to stop the filthy turk

    Death to the inferior yellow hordes and their lizard emperor.

    We will reclaim what is ours! The road to Hong Kong shall be made clear by the power of our mighty armies and fleets!

    You Inferior Frenchie Froggie's are not worth my time, GET OUT! Go back to your boyfriends!

    A French commander was overheard yelling to his troops, "Onward men, those Chinese fools couldn't hit an elephant from 20 paces!"

    Austrian scum, may you burn in hell forever for this betrayal against your
    own brethren!

    I told you once to get out of my way, this is your last warning!

    General Grant, all set for the Yankee Triathalon?

    March South,
    Run North,
    Swim the Potomac!

    It is high time that the Hogfather and his Prussian hogs should meet their makers.

    Pathetic excuses of frogs, I shall dine on your legs in Berlin!

    We wish our glorious brothers in arms well

    Is it just me or are France and Holland a little too cozy? Europe get your
    divine shadow and your ass in gear.

    The people of Denmark will be freed from the tyranny of the Prussians! Death to the opressors!

    Lest anyone think that Mexican labor is cheap or that a single floating
    french cork in the Pacific will dictate the policies of the Americas.

    The Spanish colonies of the lowlands ought to keep to that: lowliving in
    their lowlands. And the Stadtholder's mother smells funny.

    Prussia - Mmm, Bavaria tastes like chicken! I just wanted to thank you for
    your shortsightedness. After all, without it, the Divine Order would not be
    savoring the torments I'm inflicting upon your citizenry. Don't worry,
    though. My people are, after all, professionals, and it would be wasteful
    to perform a mass cleansing without wringing every delightful drop of
    anguish from the scream-torn throats of your populace. I'll treat Berlin
    the same way, just so you don't concern yourself that I may treat your
    social elite in the manner of the cattle that they are. Instead, I'll just
    process them into raw proteins to feed to slaves and breeders. The
    leftovers I'll convert into pig feed, and burn the waste for its methane.
    In the Divine Order, there's a use for every Prussian. You'll see.

    Long live our allies, the CSA!

    France - Good boy! Good doggie! Good little English lap doggie!

    The British have all of the manners that the crude and barbaric Prussians lack.

    Russians, pepare to die slowly and painfully. We will no longer tolerate the smell to our north, you stink, pig-eaters! Fear the islamic sword of the Ottoman empire, and may allah be with us!

    The Turks must be cleansed from the earth

    YANKEES ROUTED AT SHARPSBURG! MCCLELLAN RESIGNS IN DISGRACE! LINCOLN
    IMPEACHED! Lee set to march on Washington next year!

    RICHMOND - September 18, 1862 - After luring Yankee troops across Antietam
    Creek at "Burnsides Birdge" and along the Boonsborogh Turnpike, General A.P.
    Hill's Division of the Army of Northern Virgina's First Corps smashed into
    the advancing Federal's flank just south of Sharpsburg, Maryland. Commanding
    General Robert E. Lee was conferring with his staff, who had been preparing
    to retire the day on the success of bloody standoffs against superior numbers
    at "Bloody Lane" and Dunker Church, when Hill's Virginians routed Burnside,
    scattering his divisions into the and back across the water. Lee was
    congratulating his staff officers for a fine effort when, "Up Came Hill!" to
    decisely win the day.

    Following on this Summer's success at Second Manassas, General Lee march the
    Army of Northern Virginia into Maryland, capturing the Federal garrison at
    Harpers Ferry along the way.Before the battle General George B. McClellan
    intercepted a dispatch carried Lee's plans, and boasted to his staff, "...if
    I cannot whip Bobby Lee, I will be willing to go home. If I don't crush Lee
    now, you may call me whatever you please." After the defeat at Sharpsburg
    "Little Mac" is the only way anyone refers to McClellan.

    With Confederate troops poised to seize the Yankee Capital, The United States
    House of Representatives has impeached President Lincoln. It seems the
    "Whiskered Tyrant" is none too popular. President Jefferson Ruffhaus VIII
    has demanded that the United States unconditionally surrender and formally
    acknowledge to sovereignty of the Confederacy.

    NEWS:
    Berlin built to the ground by Chancellor!
    Former Berlin- Chancellor Otto von Bismarck is reported to have set fire to
    the Reichstag and has ordered his troops to set fire to all of Berlin. It is
    reported to have been playing the didjeridoo at the moment when he was
    forced out of the Chancellory in Wilhelmstrasse by the flames.

    German Kaiser Escapes to New Orleans!
    New Orleans- Avioding British naval blockades to German ships in the North
    Sea, the Kaiser's private yacht holding the Kaiser and his family have
    escaped from Berlin, where government has been bestowed upon the Chancellor,
    Otto von Bismarck. After a pleasant journey they arrived in New Orleans and
    are to dine with the President of the Confederate States.
    The Europeans have proved to be more savages that the zulus in Africa. I
    should make better friends amongs Americans than amongst the uncouth and
    idiotic Europeans.

    Kaiser Wilhelm insists on blowing raspberried towards the east every night
    before going to bed.

    Napoleon Schmapoleon. The Brazilians couldn't beat a dead horse.

    Russia - Thanks for the vote of confidence into Berlin, but I've always
    wondered what it would be like to see Odessa this season. Who knows? The
    Ottomans may send me a postcard from delightful Romania and Georgia, which
    only brightens my outlook on things. You Russians are a hardy lot, though.
    You may get used to the Turkish penchant for anal impalement for all
    non-Muslims and recidivists.

    All who oppose the Great Tsar shall die for their treachery

    Spare no-one! We will not stopuntil every American is cleared from Canadian soil!

    This has been a busy turn! Interesting little wars springing up all over the planet. Lots of units were destroyed. Once the map is posted, we'll talk about when retreats are due. Once retreats are in, then we'll talk about builds & disbands. Please remember to keep track of all your units...

    ----------------------
    GM'S NOTE - READ THIS!
    ----------------------

    Well, it seems like Talon got the majority vote. I'll let something like this happen once. By now all of you know that I reply to your moves. I tend to do so as soon as I get them. So, if you DON'T see a reply from me within 24 hours from sending in moves, builds, disbands, retreats, your grandmother's soul, etc. SEND THEM AGAIN. I will get them and reply. Do not assume your stuff made it through otherwise. Something like this happens again, you NMR, your retreating units go OTB, or you NBR. There will be no more votes like this.

    So, when the slightly modified map gets posted, EMAIL me your retreats & your builds. This way I can reply to you, and I don't have to go hunting them down on this forum. Any builds, disbands, retreats, or orders posted here will be considered invalid. All retreats and builds sent to me prior to this vote are considered invalid. I lost track of everything when this occured.

    My email address is: mikedr@gte.net

                Victor, how'd you manage to make the Chinese letters come out using the Western European font? For a sec there, I thought that I didn't change back from the Chiense font....

                    Are there deadlines for the builds and spring moves? It seems so long since the last moves were due...

                      Very simple. I went to Altavista, went to translate, and copied and posted the Chinese characters. They don't all show up on my computer, and I have no way of entering them But hey... at least Korean characters work perfectly.

                          Fascinating stuff. The Chinese Squares turned out quite lovely. Can we have a deadline! Can we try to get this game back on track? No more NMR's peeps. Understood? If you have all this extra computer time, then getting a set of orders in by dealine shouldn't be that difficult. Thank you.

                            Gerwald,
                            I canīt speak for the others who found these chinese squares quite lovely, but I sent my builds in eons ago. And yes, I too would love to see some progress in this game.

                            Isnīt it funny: the larger these games are, the slower doe they run. Somehow a little like the UN
