Earlier this year, back at the Zeeb, I hosted a game of Diplomacy which the canny and talented Radius won with gusto. Now that it's summer and many of us are operating on lower-stress schedules, it's a great time to start another game.
I would love to play, if I can, and I know miekko was shortlisted as a possible host for the next game at the time; but I'm willing to host again if nobody else volunteers.
I have previously offered to host next time, but the way this summer is shaping up I don't think that would be a good idea (nor would it be a good idea for me to play). I have been insanely busy (by my standards, anyway) for several months and I do not foresee this changing anytime soon. I would miss hell of deadlines.
Look, Zontas, there are fails, and there are botches. There's a difference between not knowing what you're doing and... You know.
Alright guys, we have a dedicated diplomacy chatroom at #anthodiplo on irc.sorcery.net; I will roll for the countries tomorrow after I have gotten jDip to work (why is it delivered with an installer package from 2002?). That and also I need to go to sleep now because I have a big test tomorrow.
Aino has taken the unusually creative step of uploading a blank transparent PNG as his her avatar. Other than that, everyone's avatars should be right where they left them; sorry about the earlier fritzing.
