    You're just joining because you got owned in all of the games you've played (yes, all three >:p)

    I'll let you join, though.

    Edit: I forgot to add that you're going to get owned in the fourth one too! :O!

    1. To let anticipation build.
    2. Because it's supposed to be a sequence, damnit. D:

    Fine, as soon as we fill this up, I'll start. Orders will be due every three days? With extensions if asked for. I think this is fair - we have people in varying timezones, and sometimes, PMs are just slow.

    Timing works. START NOW!!! I have more time now than I will in a week. and way more than in two weeks. So I have enough time for the initial diplo, which is the hardest part.

    @everybody:

    I overlooked Niklas' PM. He is in.

    Azale didn't send me country preferences yet. I'll start as soon as I get preferences from him.

    Damn it. I just realized I screwed up my placement of Italy on my list. Too late to change it? (switch with turkey if not.)

    Update 0: Winter 1900

    Summer is waning. There had been a time of prosperity in Europe. The slight inflation had been beneficial to businesses and economies everywhere. The people were happy; the revolutions of 1848, forgotten. When the economy is good, people are satisfied.

    But not anymore. Winter has fallen, and with it, the end of an era. In a frenzy, U.S. investors decided to withdraw their foreign capital in search of better stock market options at home. The United States, which had slowly become the leading creditor nation in the world, suddenly and inexplicably withdrew from international politics. The President disappeared, along with the branches of government. It was anarchy. The U.S. immediately closed off all entry into the country. The world was in a state of darkness when it came to American affairs.

    Some say it was a terrorist attack. Others will insist that it was UFOs that came and attacked. In any case, the heavy borrowing and reliance on American investment contributed to the inherent instability of European economies, and so when the money disappeared, an economic downturn followed.

    In the midst of all this, seven central countries have seen this not as a time for crisis and panic, necessarily, but as a time of opportunity. The people needed a war to take their minds of the sharp depression, to forget that the "invisible hand" by which the business cycle had died. And as they eyed each other and smaller countries collapsed entirely, the world is pitted on the brink of war. For this war is not going to be like the others. The unpredictability of the economic market will be echoed in the tangled web of diplomatic alliances . Every move will be...

    A Stab in the Dark.

    Next orders are due: Thursday, April 26, at 8:00 PM, Pacific Time.
