    Signed, Fredrick Augustus II, King of Saxony and Bavaria

    To: Prussia
    From: Saxony-Bavaria


    We have signed the Customs Union as it stands. However, we propose the following term be added between term one and two:

    • The signatories of this treaty will work to establish regulated tariffs and trade policies with outside nations.

    This measure is essential to make sure that goods are charged the same tariff to enter the nations in a customs union, regardless of where they enter.

    To: Austria-Hungary
    From: Saxony-Bavaria


    Your behavior is appalling. What terms do you believe entitle you into the German Customs Union? It is the opinion of Saxony-Bavaria that you are not even a German state. Austria has mingled with other nations for too long and can no longer be considered purely German.

    To: German Duchies
    From: Saxony-Bavaria


    We call on you to renounce your alliances with Austria-Hungary for the sake of peace. They will only drag you into oblivion.

    OOC: It's worth noting that I am the only German state whose leader actually is a nationalist. Playing IC has an entirely different meaning for me than NWAG or Zelet.

    From: Kingdom of France
    To: Saxony-Bavaria, Prussia, Members of the German Customs Union
    CC: All Other German States

    Her Supreme Majesty's foreign office wishes to congratulate the governments of Saxony-Bavaria, Prussia and their colleagues in the German Customs Union on beginning the process of throwing off the chains of Hapsburg tyranny. Only by distancing yourselves from the mounting insanity and dementia of the Hapsburg emperor can you achieve your own success and greatness as nations. While Her Supreme Majesty bears no ill will to the Hapsburg monarch, who we offer nothing but pity and condolences for his recent distemper, we must caution all German states (and all European states in general) to limit their dealings with the Austro-Hungarian government for their own safety and the safety of their subjects. We must move forward into a newer, better Europe, which will leave the barbarism of Austrian aggression and adventurism in the distant, inscrutable past.

    Hey,

    To: Russia, Greece & Serbia
    From: United Kingdom of the Danube


    We agree to the multinational railway and will agree the line can be connected through the United kingdom of Danube.

    To: Greece
    From: United Kingdom of the Danube


    We are delighted to hear that you are willing to sign a defensive military agreement. We await a conformation from the Greek Ambassador.

    To: Serbia
    From: United Kingdom of the Danube


    We would ask that Serbia rethink its stance and join our Balkans defensive military agreement. Such a agreement would help keep the wolves that may come to feed on our newborn countries.

    To: Russia
    From: United Kingdom of the Danube


    We agree to the terms of the Trade and Investment Pact even if Greece & Serbia decline.

    The first group of Danube recruits will be reporting to St. Petersburg for officer training by the end of the month.

    From: Vietnam

    Though we remain committed to the cause of peace in East Asia, the dismal response to our proposal for a diplomatic dinner in Hue has caused our Emperor to cancel the planned event. We send our sincerest apologies to the one nation, the Republic of Spain, that did agree to attend, but we feel little would be accomplished by only two nations meeting at such a formal event. If, later, a different Asian or European nation decides to call a similar conference, Vietnam will be honored to attend, but as things stand we see no point in our holding a dinner at this time or at any time in the near future.

    We would like to open up trading routes from our colony of Aceh to mainland Vietnam. We feel as if trade could benefit for both nations and we are determined to create trading partners in the Far East.

    To: Ethiopian Empire
    From: Kingdom of Mysore

    As our vessels sailing to and from our East African colonies are being compromised by pirates, we would like to request naval aid in patrolling those waters. For you, we would be willing to help your navy in joint-training exercises. We await to your agreement on this mutually benefitting proposal.

    This addition is perfectly acceptable to us, if it is acceptable to the other member states it can be added into the treaty swiftly.

    To: Austria-Hungary
    From: The Kingdom of Prussia

    Due to your increasing aggression, insults, and threats against the Kingdom of Prussia and the Prussian people as a whole we hereby annul and void the alliance we had with your nation. It is regrettable it had to come to this, but remember it was all your working, you left us, we did not leave you.

    You can consider everything NWAG has done to be invalid as I am soon to replace him as Austria.

    Is this happening? Because if so, thank heavens, and you can consider the voiding irrelevant :p

    You are all awful people. We might as well start the NES over at this point.

    Alright, Luckymoose is now Austria-Hungary, as per previous arrangements. All diplomacy conducted by the previous player is null and void unless Luckymoose decides otherwise.

    Also, could whatever mod that reads this thread clean up the various filler posts and OOC crap over the past 3ish pages? Thanks in advance,

    Alright, you can consider my reneging of the alliance void as well.

    Don't feed the troll, folks.

    From Rafael Whatshisname, Foreign Minister of the American Republic
    To the New Granada Ambassador

    We believe it would be prudent, if, like god-fearing Christian nations, we came together to establish binational commission aimed at resolving the border disputes and other tensions between us.

    But I asked nicely!

    On an unrelated note

    To: Anne, Queen of France
    From: Muhammad, Bey of Tunis

    I see with some distaste that Aragon-Sicily and France have decreed from on high that I am a "French concern". I trust this does not preclude me from speaking and dealing with whomever I like.

    Pointing out that at no point did you actually ever respond to anything I said and just threw a bunch of examples into the air.

    If you must know, while I'm not really knowledgeable about German or Italian unification, Polish rebellion against the Russians was borne out of a Polish aristocracy used to more or less running the show on their own resenting the rule of an absolutist Tsar imposing his authority on them. Note how many liberal trappings the Polish rebellions up until the 1860s had, and their emphasis on overthrowing the aristocratic tsar. Clear policy divergence - the desires between Polish policymakers and aristocrats for liberal government vs. the Tsar's imposition of aristocracy. Note how organised Polish resistance against Russia sort of disappeared after the end of serfdom in the 1860s - the Polish aristocrats lost their biggest selling point to the Polish peasantry against the Russians. Organised Polish resistance against Russia didn't start up again till the growth of worker mass-movements in the 1890s to early 1900s.

    Okay, look. I haven't been on these forums for that long but I just wanted to say that first off, these NES' aren't all about winning. Some people (me for example) just want to have a fun time roleplaying and rolling with the punches.

    Secondly, (perhaps most importantly) if you're angry at how some people have treated you, why don't you talk to a moderator or perhaps to them privately? Why would you intentionally try to completely derail this NES that SouthernKing (who at least from what I've seen hasn't been mean to you) has put a lot of effort into.

    Seriously look I mean I read the comments, some of them were a bit harsh in my opinion (although some may not see it that way) and I think this all could've been resolved much simpler. But seriously you are just ruining this NES for so many other people who have done nothing to you and in that respect I don't know how you haven't been banned from these forums before. I respected that you came into this game with your own goals and ideas about what to do, but after this entire saga I feel like I've lost any respect for you.

    We would certainly welcome this opportunity to clean up the Indian Ocean of pirates.

    OOC: How is the situation regarding pirates in the Indian Ocean (more specifically the Arabian Sea)?
