General Marshall.

For a guy who doesn't want to see any talk about the ”German N bomb” (as opposed to the American N bomb” which is radically different) it's ironic that you drop it THREE times in one post.

Equally ironic is the fact, you are the only guy to mention the "N" word so far.

Look at it this way. By referring to you as the Fourth Reich, Mr. Lucas is only really tagging you as German and an imperialist. Read on…

Reich: The German state or empire, especially the Holy Roman Empire (926-1806) or First Reich, the German Empire (1871-1919) or Second Reich, or the Nazi state (1933-1945) or Third Reich

So Lucas might have been calling you the successors to the Holy Romans, or the German Empire of the classic European colonial era (A colonial power is an identity Germany shares with most countries of the western hemisphere). But whatever his intent all that is clear is that he tags you as German, and as an imperialist.

Being German is not a bad thing. It better not be. My wife is as German as a Deutch Mark, and my kids are all half Germans (NATO at the breakfast table!). So if being German is bad… then man! I’m really done for. They snuck in and surrounded me!

And while being called an “Empire” or an “Imperialist” is NORMALLY regarded as an insult… in the context of a MOC driven game of global military conquest? Ehhh, I’m going go ahead and call it a cultural norm.

So lighten up General Marshall. Nobody (but you) is throwing “N bombs” around.

General Lucas.
Words matter. Choose them wisely.

General Marshall.

Nobody in this group has called you a NAZI but somebody might call you a dullard if you don't get your mind around that fact.

Again, for a guy who doesn't "wish to start anything" you have a knack for magnifying difficulties.

Think on this adage: Discretion is the better part of valor.


Now put the pity pipe away, take a deep breath, and get on with your master plan Mr. "Not-a-Nazi."

Come on. Stop playing with matches at the petrol station.

Yes, every power-hungry, angry, greedy, land grabbing butcher in this murder MOC cult could be considered a fascist of sorts.

But really, I think that is to narrow a category. I mean, they are also: Militants. Expansionists. Imperialists. Industrialists. Globalists. And in general (pun intended) they probably talk to loud, even when they have food in their mouths (a common fault amongst angry generals).

So you are right. Cruelty, and inhumanity are part and parcel of "world domination." Fascists, Marxists, and chainsaw wielding ghouls are all going to find a place at this table. After all, this is "Decisive Action", not "Humanist Love Feast" (I think Goldman runs that group)

Whew...I'm glad this is just a game!

But you stroll up to the microphone and hit all the controversy words like it's nothing but a thing... when you know better.

Nazi...( synonymous with Anti-Semitism and white supremacist organizations today. Historical or current, not needed in this game)

Genocide... (touchy touchy. A terrible notion. An undeniable and unforgettable part of our rich blood soaked human history... but pretty much off limits to anybody not writing about it in a political or historical context and certainly not needed in this game).

Evoking both notions, Nazis and Genocide is just grand standing.

And perhaps most important from a strictly pragmatic standpoint: both notions are totally irrelevant to the game. DA has no rules pertaining to a nations internal politics. No rules for prisoners, human rights, animal rights, NBC, WMD, or even driving over the speed limit.

It is simply not relevant to the game.

Hmm... General Price, you have attacked me after I've been invited to your treaty, bad form good sir. It's diplomacy like this that's made me hesitant to join your alliance.


Don't insult my intelligence, and I take offense at your suggestion that I might somehow be a shady player. If you were actually interested in joining the alliance, you wouldn't have waited until the attack window was open to make a decision. It very well could have played out with you attacking me this turn or next as potential allies claimed the open territories to the north of you. I own up to it: I felt pressured to act but would have rather not crossed sabers with you at this point. Such is the game, and a fun game it is!

Peace cow? Is that for hippies?

Uhhh, I suppose that I should be the one to explain it.

Well, first the Earth cooled...

No, hang with me. There was a player who has decided to no longer take part in the game. He made a suggestion for a secondary award to be bestowed upon the general that made the least amount of attacks. He called it "The Peace Cow Award." In my brain, I decided to run with a brutal smack campaign that ventured down some relentless paths. I was entrusted to teach the fine Art of Smack by example, he did not take it that way and grew rapidly upset about certain exchanges. As a result, he left the game.

Almost all the exchanges we had together can be found throughout the threads. I say almost because his fury and impetuosity always seemed to get the best of him and he would respond then go back several times to try and repeal what he said. Since it was in response to me, I had everything he said which never came through on the DA threads.

So, now Peace Cow has become a running theme of insult and jibe. It may seem cruel, but one less general is one less general. I honestly wish that he had not quit, but if you can't take a joke, even when it is explained, then perhaps engaging in a war of words and glorious smack is not your cup o' noodles.

That's pretty much it.

A pity, but it will be entertaining to watch you burn...the smoke will no doubt be visible even from distant Oceania. You'll find that my fable includes no quarter for the indecisive or inept. Just ask General McBurger, he knows all too well.

So be it. Your alliance holds no defensive power in any event.

So, you're back. And with a new TO to boot, eh? Ambitious, but too little too late. Your position in oceania protects you from attack, but will also weaken your strikes upon the mainland. Eurasian generals will reach the coast first, and stymie your progress. You're only chance is to join an alliance which will want you to escape your island prison - an alliance like STUDS. Your enmity towards Topsy would serve us well in the Eurasian/African campaign - join us, and let our legions trample the grass of Primal Scream. All it takes is for you to click the join button on the STUDS treaty group, and you will be accepted.

General Bacca you are my man in India. It is good thinking on your part as Lady Paranoia might just turn on you first, if she can stop crying about the rules long enough to betray you. So I'm clear, the new TO will not be officially listed until such time as it becomes necessary, this isn't a "best-friends forever" TO like so many others appear to be. Cheers, yo.

Word up yo.

I never left good sir, and as for your opinion on the timeliness of my strategy, you'll excuse me if I don't take advice from a bumbler like yourself. Your "attack" last turn...at the expense of your own expansion...did anything but inspire confidence. Your mighty alliance has no need for such an offensively weak player such as myself either. No, the time of the cumbersome TO groups is over.

Alas, my assumptions were inaccurate as I chose my last attack - an error which I won't repeat. As for the end of TO's, you'd be singing a different tune were I nearer to you and able to overpower all your land defences with one tank.

I would also like to invite you to our TO Primal Scream, alas I am unable to do so, so i have sent the request up the chain.

I am handing you the olive branch of peace yo, take it and come home yo.

You don't want my advice on?
You don't want me to rate your creations?


General Dobers, S.

Many generals who are already in larger TOs are complacent. They feel safe, and they will tend to stick to whatever worked yesterday.

Sounds to me like you have enough insight and creativity to consider starting a new TO of your own. Instead of courting the powere orthodoxy, you should build a fresh new power of your own, and provide them with a wake up call.

Seek power amungst the disenfranchised and the down trodden. You may find the hungry of the world are the hardest workers.

Attack?

Plus I have a theory which, if correct, could be a game-changer.


Yea yea...

Don't talk to the indifferent world about game changers. Just change the game and enjoy the confusion!

General Almighty.

Start to look at things differently. Stop courting favor from old TOs. Start thinking about WHO you can attack, and WHO would benefit by teaming up with you for a turn.

TOs are a dead end. They are like pens in which the large predators store their food animals until they are ready to remove them and eat them.

Get mean, get mean friends, and then in AW7 get bloody.

Attack!

Hmmmm.... run it through the truth-o-matic and we get:

thou art the mind behind this game

be my liege and father,

Lord your painful and public.

From this, DS intell concludes:

You think I'm smart and you think of me as a father (thanks... I was embarrassed to mention it earlier... but I have often thought of you as the son I never had). Further, you approve of the transparency with which I pursue the administration of the group.

I agree on all counts!
