SYM Diplomacy – The Quest for World Domination…
by people who can barely tie their shoes.
Welcome to the first SYM diplomacy game. This is a low-spam thread. What belongs here:
- News and maps from me pertaining to the game.
- Questions and concerns from the players.
- Press. This is generally ‘in character’ communication that can be shared with all players (and the rest of SYM.)
- Taunting, comments, propaganda, etc. from both players and
SYMers. If you can’t smile and take some prodding as your armies are being viciously sodomized and your empire is being overrun, better seek counseling now.
What does not belong:
-Off topic discussions.
Just to be clear, I’d love to see commentary from all of SYM on the game
, even if you don’t understand the rules or the concept; but if someone starts a counting thread or wants to discuss the geo-political climate of pre-war Europe, they should go elsewhere.
Players may negotiate via PM or email (but not IM or phone). I’d suggest email, as the new PM inbox seems to fill up rather quickly. I will request that orders be sent to me either in unambiguous longhand (Fleet in North Sea moves to English Channel) or the in the shorthand convention given in the manual (F Nth – Eng). While players get accustomed to the game, I’ll make some reasonable
attempts to reconcile confusing orders, but reserve the right to label a move ‘invalid’ and simply adjudicate those orders that constitute valid moves. Please send orders to me via email
. I don’t trust PMs. I’ll turn on my address in my profile for you.
We’ll attempt to run the game without resorting to NMRs (no moves received.) If a player is chronically late, we will either have to use NMRs, or a dissatisfied populace will overthrow the offender and a new leader/player will be put in place.
Franz Ferdinand is Dead! Chaos ensues, and the cudgels of world power fall to:
Tsar Korn of Russia
King Dottie England
President CM of France
Archduke Aegis of Austria
Kaiser Nippy of Germany
King Frogus of Italy
Sultan Kameleon of Turkey
Deadline for spring 1901 order is Fri 4/12. Get negotiating. Starting positions can be seen here: http://www.diplomacy-archive.com/regularmaps/std3.gif
