Note, the province who's name is hidden by the order box is NAF, though, I am a very accepting GM. So long as it's clear what you mean, I will accept the order. If you were to, for example, refer to this area as Algeria, I'll accept the order. If however you called it Algania, I may not, as it could be confused with Albania, etc.

I will be keeping this player list up to date. You only need to thus follow this post to know who you are playing, and don't need to go hunting for PM's

Note that I've edited the map. And when I say edit the map, I don't mean that I've edited the image. I actually edited the map data in realpolitik. It's not that hard, the program is designed to be customisable.

Nametags and Units should no longer be hidden, or, hide centre dots.

I've also hosted the map on my website so that anyone with difficulty accessing photobucket wont have a problem.

Probably a good idea, since I've already forgotten, to state when the moves are due...when are they due?

Order Example Syntax, using the most common opening move in the game.

A Con-Bul
CON BUL
Army Constantinople to Bulgaria
A moves Constantinople to Bulgaria
Con Moves Bulgaria
Army Con-->Bul


I use A CON-BUL personally, but any of the above is acceptable.

I usually go with "Army Constantinople MOVES Bulgaria"

I hope that's fine. Tongue

Probably. Wink

I mean, in what way or universe would they not be acceptable?

Now we're asking obvious questions, how do I write a support-command?

"s" or "Supports"

F Bla S A Con-Bul
Army Greece Supports Constantinople to Bulgaria

Convoy orders must include the full path.

Fleet Aeg Convoys Army Con-Gre
Army Con-Aeg-Gre

So, "Army Smyrna-Greece (convoyed)" is not acceptable? Or only acceptable if it's theoretically impossible to convoy any other way?

As I said I will accept any set of orders that I can understand, but you really should be putting in the full path.

Pre-orders are good. I'll generally hope that I get them from all players before I leave work on Thursday mornings (2 hours from now)

I've sent out PM's to those that I don't have orders from yet to subtly remind them of the deadline.

FYI, I am liable to find myself with no/intermittant net access for the next 10 days or so. Hopefully I'll be able to check in evry couple of days and put in orders, etc.

There is still one player I don't have orders from and the deadline is under 24 hours away. If no orders are received, should we NMR?

I've included "GM's Comments on Popularity" since it's taboo for me to comment on strategy, I thought I could at least comment on how often I've seen a set of moves happen

Turkey - Crimean Crusher
I've only been witness to a few games where this has been tried, one of them while I was Turkey, and never one where the move to BLA has worked.

Russia - Ukraine System, Austrian Attack Variant
Not rare but not common either. I've used this myself in the past.

Italy - Tyrolia Attack
I've seen this opening quite often. I've used this myself in the past.

Germany - Anschluss, Munich Variant
I've never seen this exact move before, though I've seen the armies move this way and F to HOL. I've never used this exact move, but I have sent MUN to TYL before.

France - Atlantic Opening, Burgundy Variant
Fairly common, I've used it myself in the past.

England - Northern Opening, Churchill Variant
This is the most common opening I've witnessed for England, I've used this myself in the past.

Austrian - Roadhog
This is a fairly standard opening. I've used it myself in the past.

A Budapest - Rumania

     Commanding opening for Turkey. I've never actually seen Turkey mount an early offensive against Russia. I could actually editorialize on all of the openings, but I think the players would benefit from working out the consequences of this turn on their own. Wink
