Diplomacy time again!

This time I will run a game that will rise phoenix-like from the embers of Killersquid's long dormant campaign. Players in that game will get preference in places for this game but anyone can sign up.

Basic house rules.  First turn is five days, others will be three days (with a bit of latitude to account for the fact that I probably won't update until later in the day after the deadline). I will give a bit of leeway for late orders, and if you need to drop out of the game for whatever reason, then you are required to find a replacement...Or else.
For Diplomacy stuff.

Rules can be found here.

Quick learners guide can be found here.

Seven spots available, sign up below and I'll randomly assign starting positions when we have all the players that we are going to get.

Edit: Game is now full, players and nations are as follows:

Killing Time: England
Lockz: Turkey
Azore24: Austria
Seraph Tenacious: Germany
Benis: Russia
JoBob: France
Faitherun: Italy

Since Lockz game is in the final throws I'd like to be in this, if that's ok.

I'll play, but can someone link me to a good set of Diplomacy rules?

Anything wrong with these?

I would also like to join but I can take a reserve spot if someone new or from Killersquid's game comes along and want to play.

I've edited in the names of the colours for each nation in to the list for the geographically challenged. Some of the colours won't show up well on the forum background so I won't change the text colour itself.

Deutchland extends a wish of good fortune to all nations this Spring.

Know that we will be a fearsome adversary if you oppose us, and a fierce and loyal ally to those who aid us.

That's not blatant, this is blatant: I'm super happy that I'm playing Austria, the greatest nation in all of Diplomacy!

Noble Italy is incensed that you would accuse her of lying, and would appreciate a formal apology.

Thanks to everyone getting their orders in, we can now head into the first Winter. Some early revealing of hands, some clashing ambitions and some actual surprises.

Austria:
F Albania - Greece
A Serbia Supports F Albania - Greece
A Trieste Hold

England:
F North Sea - Norway
F Norwegian Sea Supports F North Sea - Norway
A Yorkshire Hold

France:
A Burgundy - Belgium
F Mid-Atlantic Ocean - Portugal
A Spain Hold

Germany:
F Denmark - Sweden (*Bounce*)
A Kiel - Holland *note that this is a correction*
A Ruhr Supports A Burgundy - Belgium

Italy:
A Tuscany Supports A Venice
F Tyrrhenian Sea - Tunis
A Venice Hold

Russia:
F Gulf of Bothnia - Sweden (*Bounce*)
F Rumania Hold
A St Petersburg Hold
A Ukraine Supports F Rumania

Turkey:
A Bulgaria Hold
F Constantinople Supports A Bulgaria
A Smyrna - Syria





This means that the following builds are available this year:

Austria:   Supp  5 Unit  3 Build  2
England:   Supp  4 Unit  3 Build  1
France:    Supp  6 Unit  3 Build  3
Germany:   Supp  5 Unit  3 Build  2 *correction*
Italy:     Supp  4 Unit  3 Build  1
Russia:    Supp  5 Unit  4 Build  1
Turkey:    Supp  4 Unit  3 Build  1

Get those builds to me ASAP and we can start on 1902.
