AusBowl Diplomacy I

Post by SinisterDexter »

On the eve of January 1, 1900, the leaders of Europe celebrate the new century by proclaiming the Concert of Europe. Long may our dominance last...

Welcome to the first AusBowl Diplomacy game.

The rules of Diplomacy can be found here: https://www.wizards.com/avalonhill/rules/diplomacy.pdf

Please make sure you've read the rules, but the key elements and slight changes for the online format are below.

Players
Random.org has spoken, and the players are:

King Mathfuric V of Britain (UK)
President Olaf, 10th President of France
Keizer Matthias the Great (DazedMW) of Germany
Tsar Rabid II of Russia
Sultan One Eye V of the Ottoman Empire (Turkey)
King Chavo III of Italy
Emperor SinDex I of Austria-Hungary

Rounds
The game will run in 48 hour rounds, each round representing either Spring or Fall of the year (in order) and beginning in Spring 1901. I will set a cutoff time (may not be exactly 48 hours, but will be as close as possible while maintaining a regular time of the day - probably 7pm).

During each 48 hour round, each player will need to conduct Diplomacy with other players and submit orders to SinDex. Diplomacy may be conducted via public post in this thread and/or via pm (or other contact) with other players.

Following a Diplomacy/Orders round will be a 24 hour Retreat/Supply round where players will be asked what they want to do with retreating forces and, after Fall, where they want to place new forces.

Orders

Orders must be submitted by the cutoff, and I will ONLY accept the first set of orders sent (i.e., you cannot change them once you have sent them through). You MUST place the word "Orders" in the title of your orders pm (if you do not there is a chance I will read them prior to submitting my own orders).

When submitting orders please conform to the format in the rules. The valid orders are Hold, Move, Support, Convoy.

Map
Below is a map that shows the territories:

Image

Each turn I will post a map like the one below showing current positions of each fleet and army, along with a list of the supply centres currently held by each player.

Pre-Game:

UK Mathfuric 3 (London, Edinburgh, Liverpool)
France Olaf 3 (Paris, Marseille, Brest)
Germany DazedMW 3 (Berlin, Munich, Kiel)
Russia Rabid 4 (Moscow, Sevastapol, Warsaw, St Petersburg)
Turkey One Eye 3 (Ankara, Constantinople, Smyrna)
Italy Chavo 3 (Rome, Venice, Naples)
A-H SinDex 3 (Vienna, Budapest, Trieste)

Let's get started:

Spring 1901 (Round 1)
Orders Deadline: Monday 13 April, 7:00pm CST

Guys, it has been suggested we keep this thread relatively clean for maps, so please try to use the other thread for general discussion. Formal declarations of peace or war could go here though.

Weeeeell...

Round 1 is done and the campaigning has begun. I'm going to put as little commentary as I can, just because I am actually involved and I don't want to accidentally tip mine, or anyone else's, hand.

However, there were two 'bounces' this round. The Austrian and Russian forces from, respectively, Vienna and Warsaw bounced in Galicia, while the French and German forces from, respectively, Paris and Munich bounced in Burgundy. Other than that, all movement occurred without incident.

Here is the map after Round 1:

Image

As there are no retreat moves, and we don't gain reinforcements until after Fall, Round 2 will finish at 7pm on Wednesday evening.

Fall 1901 (Round 2)
Orders Deadline: Wednesday 15 April, 7:00pmCST

Sure:

Austria:
A Vienna - Galicia
A Budapest - Serbia
F Trieste - Albania

Italy:
A Venice - Piemonte
A Rome - Apulia
F Naples - Ionian Sea

Germany:
F Kiel - Denmark
A Berlin - Kiel
A Munich - Burgundy

Turkey:
A Constantinople - Bulgaria
F Ankhara - Constantinople
A Smyrna - Ankhara

UK:
F Edinburgh - North Sea
A Liverpool - York
F London - Wales

Russia:
F StPetersburg - Gulf of Bothnia
A Moscow - Ukraine
A Warsaw - Galicia
F Sevastapol - Rumania

France:
F Brest - Mid Atlantic
A Paris - Burgundy
A Marseille - Spain

As you cannot take and hold a supply centre in Spring, the supply centres remain unchanged.

Apparently the convention is to underline moves that failed, so I've edited to do this.

Ok, so round 2 has been finalised.

Orders were:
BRITAIN
F wal - ENG
A yor - nwy
F NTH c A yor - nwy

FRANCE
A par - bur
A spa - mar
F MID - por

AUSTRIA
F alb - gre
A ser s F alb - gre
A vie - gal

ITALY
A pie - mar
F ION - tun
A apu - rom

RUSSIA
A war - gal
A ukr s A war - gal
F rum hold
F BOT - swe

GERMANY
A mun - ruh
F den - swe
A kie - håll

TURKEY
A bul hold
F con - AEG
A ank - con

Which leaves the map looking like this (I found a program that adjudicates the orders for me, so yes it has changed slightly).

Image

Supply centres are as follows:

UK 4 (Edinburgh, London, Liverpool, Norway) +1
France 5 (Brest, Paris, Marseille, Spain, Portugal) +2
Russia 5 (Moscow, Warsaw, StPetersburg, Sevastapol, Rumania) +1
Germany 5 (Munich, Berlin, Kiel, Holland, Denmark)
Italy 4 (Rome, Venice, Naples, Tunisia) +1
Turkey 4 (Constantinople, Ankhara, Smyrna, Bulgaria) +1
A-H 5 (Budapest, Vienna, Trieste, Serbia, Greece) +2

No retreats to worry about, but people need to send me the locations and types of their gained forces. Could you please do this by stating A (army) or F (fleet) and the name of the supply centre they are to be built in. Remember you may only build in your main supply centres (the three or four you started with).

No-one that I know of, but I didn't specifically state it so I thought I should.

Also, just so people are aware, I am sending orders just like everyone else to myself. I am doing this before I look at anyone else's orders. The records will exist for verification at the end of the game.

Germany is confident enough in its own masculinity to compliment Italy on its nice map!

Ouch! A sudden sneak attack from England (giving up a supply centre no less) has left Germany looking fragile.

The only retreat is the German fleet from Denmark, and its only option is the Heligoland Bight.

So, holdings after Round 4 are:

France 6 (Brest, Paris, Marseille, Spin, Portugal, Belgium) +1
Britain 5 (London, Edinburgh, Liverpool, Norway, Sweden) +1
Germany 4 (Berlin, Munich, Kiel, Holland) -1
Italy 4 (Rome, Naples, Venice, Tunisia) no change
Austria 5 (Vienna, Trieste, Budapest, Serbia, Greece) no change
Russia 6 (Moscow, Warsaw, Sevastapol, Rumania, St Petersburg, Denmark) +1
Turkey 4 (Constantinople, Smyrna, Ankhara, Bulgaria) no change

So Olaf, Mathfuric and Rabid, tell me where and what you would like to build. Dazed, which force are you going to disband?
