quoting Tercüman-ı Hakikat:
Army of Constantinople drafted to transport tulips to the Sultana's pleasure gardens.  Top generals consider the move "unwise".

Flood of Black Sea smuggled vodka engulfing Ankara.  Imams outraged, demand naval action; everyone else delighted.

Outcry as Russian newspapers spread false rumors of the Sultana consorting with unclean animals.  Officials confirm that the Sultana was playing with kittens.

It is winter, 1901.

One of Naeddyr's units has been dislodged, and he must decide what to do with it. He has a day for this.
I think nobody will object if I set the same deadline also for the build phase. Units to build:


England: 1
France: 2
Germany: 2
Italy: 1
Russia: 2
Turkey: 1

Policy question for the GM: Would you accept conditional retreat instructions during main phases? For example, if Austria, anticipating events, had added to his Fall 1901 orders "Also if Rumania is dislodged retreat it to Serbia if possible or Galicia otherwise" - would that be acceptable? It wouldn't have mattered this time, but it could mean fewer whole-day retreat phases needed in the future.

Military industrialization proliferates; doomsday looms as military size nearly doubles across Europe since spring of 1901

Vacationers, commercial ships steer clear Aegean Sea, foreseeing confrontation between Italy, Turkey; Viktor frets, "But what about the tourists???"

Russia fortifies, but still so damn far from Real Europe to matter
