Diplomacy 2

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.

Good day! I, Kaiser Rolls welcome you to the wonderful world of diplomacy. May we all bask in the light of friendship and peace.
Here, you hold this jar of acid and the rattlesnake. I've got to hop on the unicycle and get this chainsaw revved up.

I am suggesting the following special rules here. Can you tell me your opinion on them? (I got this from a Diplo pbem site and modified it a bit.)

1) Players should submit moves by the deadline, come hell or high water. Players may wish to submit a set of tentative orders as soon as possible and then modify them as the turn progresses. A player who consistently misses the deadline (ie NMRs) risks being expelled from the game. If you need more time you should request a deadline extension, in cases of genuine need. A grace period will apply up until I process the orders.
3) Feel free to ask for deadline extensions at any time (but not later than 24 hours before a deadline, please). However, if you will be unable to continue playing permanently or for a significant period of time, you should notify me as soon as possible to allow me time to find a replacement (unless you have one yourself, which is preferable).
4) Ten GM commandments (from a pbem site)
- I will remain impartial in all matters.
- I will not interfere in game play.
- I will not interpret orders.
- I will not comment on any perceived notions, alliances, or treachery in the game.
- I will not actively participate in player deceptions.
- I will delay the game and ask for new orders from a player if I suspect that a player's orders were faked by another player.
- I will do my best to meet all my information processing and game maintenance responsibilities as quickly and accurately as possible.
- I will not change the basic game parameters after players start signing up, unless the players vote to do so unanimously.
- I will endeavour to be 'firm, fair, but friendly' at all times.
- I will try, to the best of my abilities, to ensure that everyone has fun!
