After a four-month hiatus, Anthologica has risen from the limbo of hard drive failure, and what better way to celebrate that than with a nice game of Diplomacy? Post to join.

The issue was that pharazon was visiting, hence I was busy with IRL social life*, and the visit originally was planned to be over by then. Instead it only just ended yesterday. So I am now free and foresee no further time constraints. Bring on the Spring 1901...



*Social life, n. The state of being drunk, high, or recovering from one of those conditions.

Yeah, I'm down. I suppose I could be judge this go-round, since H13 did it last time.

It appears to me that we still have only half the requisite number of people saying yes. Should we start advertising in channel?

Granted there is a variant ruleset for six players that doesn't use Italy, and if everyone is down for that I say we should go for it, because getting stuck with Italy is even worse than getting stuck with Austria. At least with Austria if you get hosed you generally die fast, whereas the perennial fate of Italy is a slow lingering failure to either succeed OR die.

by the way, I prefer being judge to being a player, so, dhok, if you want to play, by all means do

Since I won't be going to Latin Camp by Opus Dei this autumn, I'll reaffirm my commitment to play. H13, you can stay judge.

We could always try a new map if we wanted- there are plenty of well-balanced Diplo variants out there.

But why did you bother constructing a set of one item for a position that only permits one item?
