Russia builds a new fleet on the north coast of St Petersburg and France disbands its Tyrrhenian Sea fleet.

Map:



Orders for the Sprin 1922 turn are due by Midnight GMT on Friday September 16th I'll be travelling back to Europe on that date so I won't be sending out any reminders this turn.

We have the builds now. Russia raises an army in St Petersburg, Germany cashes in on the French stabbing up by putting an army and a fleet in Berlin and Kiel while France sends its Tyrolean army home for an early bath.

Here's the map:



Orders for the Spring 1923 turn are therefore due by Midnight GMT on Tuesday 27th September.

Orders are in, new partnerships seem to have been forged from the ashes of dead alliances.

Here are the orders:

Austria:
F Adriatic Sea Supports A Trieste - Venice
F Apulia - Ionian Sea
A Bohemia - Vienna
A Galicia Hold
F Ionian Sea - Tyrrhenian Sea
F Naples Supports F Ionian Sea - Tyrrhenian Sea
A Sevastopol Supports A Ukraine
A Trieste - Venice
A Tyrolia Supports A Trieste - Venice
A Ukraine Supports A Galicia

France:
F English Channel Supports F Portugal - Mid-Atlantic Ocean (*Dislodged*)
F Marseilles - Spain(sc)
F Portugal - Mid-Atlantic Ocean (*Fails*)
A Rome Hold
F Tunis - Western Mediterranean

Germany:
A Belgium - Ruhr
F Brest - Mid-Atlantic Ocean
A Burgundy Supports A Munich
A Gascony - Marseilles
F Holland - Belgium
A Munich Hold
A Paris - Brest
A Venice - Piedmont

Russia:
A Livonia Supports A Warsaw
F London - English Channel
A Moscow Supports A Warsaw
F North Atlantic Ocean Supports F Brest - Mid-Atlantic Ocean
F North Sea Supports F London - English Channel
A Norway Hold
A Prussia - Silesia
A St Petersburg Supports A Moscow
A Warsaw Supports A Prussia - Silesia

And a map:




Here's the result:



There's one retreat to handle prior to builds:

French F English Channel can retreat to the Irish Sea, Wales, Picardy or it may disband. Note that France will need to disband a unit by the end of the year.

Get that retreat/disband to me and then we'll go to builds. I'll list them here along with the state of the game ahead of time:

Austria:   Supp 13 Unit 10 Build  2
France:    Supp  4 Unit  5 Remove  1
(assuming that the dislodged fleet retreats, if it is disbanded instead then there is no adjustment required)
Germany:   Supp  8 Unit  8 Build  0
Russia:    Supp  9 Unit  9 Build  0

Austria is once again resurgent while France falls further and further behind. The big surprise though is Germany, after many years of languishing far behind the other powers and now the Germans are only a single supply centre behind Russia.

The French fleet in the English Channel disbands and Austria builds two new armies in Trieste and Vienna. I can't help feeling that is going to spell bad news for someone, I guess we'll find out who soon enough.

Here's the map going into 1924:



Orders for Spring 1924 are due by Midnight GMT on Thursday 6th October

Your map has too many Austrian fleets.  There is nothing in Ion or Apu.  (Though I don't mind the free forces...)

Well spotted, thanks. I hadn't updated the client at work for a while and it was about 8 turns behind so I edited it to match the last map in the thread instead of uploading all the orders missed since 1921.

The map has been amended and should now be correct.

This has affected me as IainC pointed out with an illegal move - that army I have in Ruhr is a ghost army.

Adjustments are in. New armies rise in Berlin and Budapest and a new fleet is launched in Trieste. Meanwhile the army in Tunisia and the fleet in the Western Mediterranean are the latest victims of French defence cuts.

Here's the map going into 1925:



Orders for the Spring 1925 turn are due by Midnight GMT on Wednesday 19th October.

I'm going to go ahead and propose that the game be called a draw.  Unless Azore really thinks he can pull off a win (I doubt it), I think we've done all we can here.

Very glad BTW to see this game going into 1925!
