Zombie-Man uses his powers for GEWD, but Kirby doesn't know how to deal with the hunger!
For you twitter fanatics, Direman Press now has a feed. I'll be updating mostly site related stuff, although I imagine slices of my life will find its way inside: www.twitter.com/diremanpress. Note that the handle is 'diremanpress', not 'dream empress', Ben!

Diplomacy II - Spring 1908
The image below is the current state of the map. A larger version is available for viewing by clicking on it. There was no retreat phase.

England promptly followed up last turn's aggression against France by backpedaling. The fickle Austrians appear to be surrendering to the British, freely allowing him into Russian territory. This gives England at least a chance of catching up to France.
France is well on his way to victory, but if Austria is indeed determined to crown England, this next turn will be the critical one. France now has the lead and the initiative, but must withstand this next turn, without losing any previous gains. The expectation is that Austria will fling its formidable forces in a last gasp before being forced to disband upward of half his units.
Austria seems to have made a deliberate choice in his role as kingmaker.
Turkey appears to have thrown his lot in with France, against the treacherous Austrian that was his downfall.
Russia, too, I understand was to assist France against Austria, but Steve, I hear you emailed your orders to yourself? :D
