My proposal for the future is that we use the six-player rules for Diplo, in which Italy is not used. That way 1. nobody needs to get the shaft, and 2. the difficulty of reaching the correct number of interested players is reduced.

Playing the normal map without Italy is less optimal than playing on either a modified board (where Italy is stronger), or a completely different one.

I've been reconsidering the map I made for Wolf Diplomacy. It's 2/3rds the size of standard Diplo and, if tweaked properly, might be quicker and more fun in online play.

I would love to see a Diplomacy adaptation of some part of this map.

A Diplomacy game using someone's conworld map would be nice. It would be an interesting way to introduce a certain historical and political context. Plus the development of the game could be used to expand the events of that period in case there have not been created yet.

Meanwhile, I am honored to host battles in Rome between Austria and Turkey. Hundreds of thousands of Italians and Italo-Russians came out to enjoy the last show, while visiting Austrian and Turkish soldiers patronized Italian businesses, pumping hundreds of thousands of lire through the economy! We hope to host them again in the near future!

I've oft considered, once I finish the map of Daia at large, making a Diplomacy version. But I'd have no idea how to make it balanced.

I feel like pulling a Pthag and just quit like a weasel. Anyone care to take up Austria?

EDIT: This so that Austria can ally with Anguipes once more, just as Rad teamed up with Miekko, which was the purpose of Pthag's squeal gallop.

You got into the Ionian, Mr. Hapsburg. Stop trying to make it sound like all of Turkey won't shortly be yours.
