Diplomacy 3 - Gameplay

Diplomacy is a strategic board game. Its main distinction from most board wargames is negotiation: Players spend much of their time forming (and betraying) alliances with other players. Set in Europe just before the beginning of World War I , Diplomacy is played by seven players, each controlling the armed forces of a major European power.

First Turn Deadline: Friday, 21. Oct 2011, 8h00 GMT (=2h00 am Eastern Time).
I would like to keep all OOC and rule stuff in spoilers, and just the newspapers outside. If needed, we can open an OOC thread. pm me if you feel it necessary.
Keep in mind the rules for making a province your own - you need one unit in it in the fall!

Please repost your news articles from the game opening thread. Have fun!

I read this as 2pm EAST, not 2am.

I was not expecting to send you my orders until today, neither was Amaris.

Let's not start the game off with a deadline foul cause of that, please.

I have to color the provinces by hand - that means it is absolutely possible that mistakes occur. PM me if you see anything that is wrong. The "Builds" message shows definitely who controls which provinces.
