Can we have a map showing the various wars?
I'd like to know who it is I'm actually fighting.
This deserves to be sigged. Alas, my sig is out of space.
OOC: you know what you can do arya
Oh come on I'm gone for two days TWO DAYs and some how the world seems to de ending COME ON
OOC: Not pictured: me viciously strangling Robert Can't, squeezing the life out of him as I dig my fingers into his trachea. [/wtf]
More seriously, this is sort of your responsibility, hate to say. We can try to analyze the board when all the chips are down, but the chips are very much "up in the air" for the nonce. Where they fall is still up to you.
Hush I still love you Robert
But honestly I am vaguely unsure of who is fighting who in this beautiful blood bowl
The United States mobilises to 100% (for the second time).
Well I'm going to operate on the assumption then that the only war I'm actively involved in at the moment is the European War.
The Japanese National Front is dedicated to freeing the Japanese people from the yoke of foreign tyranny and will not be satisfied until the last US soldier leaves our shores and its armed ships leave our ports.
We welcome cooperation with foreign powers who do not seek to dominate us.
Y'all are welcome to cooperate with the traitors, but y'all find yourself at war with these here U-nited States quick smart y'all hear.
My issue here is very much that the person who is meant to be my overlord is on holiday and you as the GMs are taking over their diplomacy so really it is your responsibility to tell me whom I am at war with.
With last turn there being several wars that were not declared in thread (China-Russia, UK-Germany) things are already confused and unclear for me. I am certainly getting a bit annoyed with the unresponsiveness or inactivity of my overlord (be that when player or GM controlled) it seems that all of the UK's interaction with the game is going down through PMs and this really doesn't help me. I don't know how or why the British government, which supposedly is determining my foreign policy, is doing anything.
OOC- the real problem is Tom Black declared war on Germany and went to his vacation manse, leaving lieutenants without plenipotentiary authority to execute his will. Nevertheless, expect a PM containing your orders.
Mostly my fault. I'm going to make a map later tonight to get that out, but expect a written list shortly
I honestly was under the impression that the UK was at war with Russia given that I was under instruction to prepare to deploy troops to that theatre. I was only trying to get to grips with what was going on.
I'm really sorry for causing this whole controversy and I hope that in the future we'll all be able to communicate better what is going on so stuff like this doesn't keep happening.

Extract from the memoirs of Sir George Pendleton
The State of The World, 1938
War has engulfed the world! With a vast majority of the world's economies in mobilization to fight the various conflicts they are involved in, it may be tempting to call this a "World" War. However, at this time most experts agree that the two international conflicts are distinct enough that they warrant being called separate conflicts.
The European War, as some commentators have taken to calling it, embarks two major blocs. First, is the The Fraternal Alliance, consisting of France, the Collective Republic of the Ruhr, the German Federalist Alliance, and Alsace-Lorraine. Of these powers, only Spain has not yet declared war. Opposed to them is the British Commonwealth, consisting of the British Empire and its protectorates of the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Norway, Denmark, and Sweden. Britain's associated dominions, India, Australasia, and South Africa, have yet to declare war, though it is unlikely any of these dominions would see combat in the actual war due to needs in China.
In addition to the two major blocs, there is a third party, informally known as the Monroe Association. Consisting of the United States, Portugal, and Morocco, these three powers are at war with Spain and France. Portugal has seen its strength significantly diminished, but it fights on from its colonies in Africa. Meanwhile, the United States is still embroiled in its own civil war, but it continues to maintain a significant presence in Morocco. Rumored cooperation between the United States and the United Kingdom would be unprecedented in modern times, but may be necessary to confront an enemy of such scale.
Of course, one cannot forget Italy, who has fought Germany and France for four years. However, with the loss of the peninsula, Italy is struggling to continue its fight from Libya, Albania, Sicily, and Greece.
In Asia, the Chinese Civil War has entered yet another phase of the war to determine whether China shall embrace republicanism or return to dynastic rule. Taking up the imperial hopes has been the Zhao Dynasty, aided by the Russian Empire. Opposed to them has been the National Han Republic of China. As of late 1937, a significant British army has been moved from Egypt and Burma to Malaysia, with rumors of them recently arriving in China. Of the dominions, India, Australasia, and South Africa have yet to declare war.
In addition to the Chinese Civil War, there is of course the Indochina War, between France and the Zhao. France has done relatively little except for commerce raiding at this time, but the Vietnam revolt is still raging in the south, gaining strength.
Because of the actions of the United Kingdom, the Russian Empire has declared war, though it is currently unknown if and how Russia intends to enter the European conflict as well. The only realistic option at this point would be to attack the extremely well fortified borders in Norway and Sweden. It would be extremely unpopular for the Russian Empire to aid the Socialists, and it could create an internal crisis for the nation.
.......and then there is me who just wants to hopefully survive and not get involved at all
OOC: RC worded it in his RP as if Britain had declared war on Russia and I was just reacting to this, not the other way around. So, what is the policy of the UK in China exactly? Is it allied to China or merely protecting its assets?
Nuke - you also forgot to mention the war between India and Portugal (and the US?) over annexation of Goa.
And a the US blockade of Brazil, that is a part of a war that never was officially finished.
EDIT: Also, Italy is no longer at war with France. Since 1936.
EDIT2: However, Italy is at war with Russia and Greece.
The United Kingdom and the United States are not at war at the moment.
The United Kingdom is protecting its assets from Russian and Imperial attacks.
