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.

 (click to PM) YELNOC - AUSTRIA

 (click to PM) BULLMOOSE - FRANCE

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.

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.

"s" or "Supports"

Army Greece Supports Constantinople to Bulgaria

Convoy orders must include the full path.

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

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.

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.

When checking the orders for validity, one appears to be invalid. I will give that player some time to remedy the situation.

Oops, sorry, got distracted by another Internet game >.<

I'll be spending the weekend catching up all over the rest of the Internet.

Build phases will normally not be anywhere near this long. However due to my error here this phase will be standard length.

If anyone has any concerns, even if you've PMed me about them in the past few days, PM me again. I wont be upset with double PM's, as it'll help me remember what I need to do to "catch up"
