Hey Stabbers!

You can leave that fez on the shelf a little longer.  The Turkish hordes have been stopped... for now.  I can't tell you the exact standings until after the retreats are processed, but suffice to say that neither the Turks nor anyone else made it to 18 SC this year.

What is most fascinating is not just that England knocked two Turkish armies off of their dots, but that neither of those dislodged units was supported.  Furthermore, those are the only two Turkish units that reveal themselves at all!  What's up with that?  Seventeen units (we assume) and only TWO have their whereabouts known?!  Should we be wondering whether our Sultan was suffering from overconfidence?  Or perhaps it is just the opposite, and our Ottoman Lord is
beset by nagging doubts and a paralysis of spirit on the very eve of a great triumph?

Hey, all I can say is there's no room for faint hearts at this party!  If the Sultan does not claim the continent then the English king will surely do so himself.  Whether we see them or not, we know there are many mighty forces at large in the dark on both sides.  None may yet turn home to rest.  None may yet relax their watch.  Play on!

RETREATS NEEDED:  Turkish army Marseilles.  Turkish army Berlin.

AUTUMN REPORTS will be sent out tomorrow night, or maybe sooner, if the Sultan is prompt.


Orders as resolved and revealed:

Diplomacy games may contain lying, stabbing, or deliberately deceiving communications that may not be suitable for and may pose a hazard to young children, gullible adults, and small farm animals.
