This is a spot for your to tell your story of what happened and who stabbed who when and for how much.

Game ended in a draw shared by Alamannii, Saxones, & Vandali

So, this game can be summarized from my standpoint pretty easily. I screwed up royally. After a couple of seasons, I'd managed to get myself a stranglehold on the game, with the perfect start. I messed up big time in negotiations with Jordan - I either didn't persuade him to support me (got out diplomacied), or didn't communicate well enough to co-ordinate our orders well enough, and I lost my footing in Italy. Surprisingly, I still managed to hold on, until a crazy misinterpretation that I'd held the entire game came back to haunt me. For some ungodly reason I'd assumed that the darker borders on the map indicated that armies could travel from one province to the other. I'd assumed that Rot-Lon, Car-Syr, and even Ath-unnamed island-Mil were completely valid. It was only after looking at the position for literally an hour, wondering how on earth vaderi could be so confident he'd ace me out to the Isles that I realized my mistake.

After that, I was doomed. My play had hinged around getting Britain with armies, and once I realized that was impossible, I knew I'd lose on the sea. I managed to survive to the finish through some diplomacy, but that's hardly more than a consolation prize.

So I screwed up big time early when I stabbed one person year one (mistake--bad diplomatically, also I screwed up the tactics a little bit) then other people got angry about it (unexpected but in hindsight it was kinda obvious). I somehow managed to survive and prosper, working with GPD even though I think he was the guy I stabbed (?), then both in game and due to surrounding circumstances I lost momentum, hence the draw.

Condude--I think one time I misordered then there was once or twice where due to both my own bad timing and others' bad timing all my messaging was happening at deadline. I don't think you ever actually communicated poorly to me. I just had a somewhat bad game collaboration wise.

Well, I took the bullet for those miscommunications. With proper communication, I honestly think that by '02 I should have been playing for the solo, with a draw as the worst case. I did plan to stab you, and end up 1v2ing you and vaderi in Italy while I took France and England to myself.

Of course, none of that panned out - I lost my Italian foothold then faded into nothing.
