Médecine Politique: A Qt3 Empires in Arms PBF Game


#286

Austria apologizes for late response on this issue. We often spend the weekend in idle pursuits: drink, being merry with compatriots, long walks in the countryside. And, as such, are not able to spend as much time on affairs of state.

Having now made a more thorough review of Europe’s political situation, we have no wish to involve ourselves in Prussia’s dispute with the Duchies. We had previously not considered that the Duchies would approach us for assistance, given our current alliance with Prussia. But now that it seems they may do so given that their entreaties have been ignored by all other major powers, we–as true allies must–also rebuff their advances.

Great Britain will roll for Sweden.

Political Phase

F. The Minor Country Control Step. Setup in the order: France, Russia, Turkey, Austria, Prussia, Great Britain, Spain.

Russia (@MiquelRamirez) declares war on Sweden.

Turkey (@Panzeh) , Austria (@Matt_W), Prussia, Great Britain (@Kolbex) , and Spain will vie for control.

Modifiers - Tu +1, Au +1, Pr +1, GB +3, Sp +1

Net rolls - Turkey 3, Austria 5, Prussia 3, Great Britain 6, and Spain 4.

Great Britain controls Sweden and Gains +1 PP.

Prussia (@Cuthbert) declares war on the Duchies.

No one supports the Duchies of Gelderland and Jülich who welcome the embrace of the Hohenzollern Crown.

Spain (@Mark_Weston) declares war on Algeria.

Turkey, Austria, Prussia, and Great Britain will vie for control.

Modifiers - Tu +3, Au +1, Pr +1, GB +1

Net rolls - Turkey 6, Austria 5, Prussia 6, and Great Britain 3.

Unmodified Roll-off between Tu and Pr results in:

Great Britain will you declare War on Russia; Prussia will you declare War on Spain?

#289

I believe it would be Prussia potentially declaring war on Spain.


#290

The Kingdom of Prussia will send advisors but will not declare war


#291

The Sublime Porte will happily offer a chartered ship to Algiers to aid the Prussian advisors in their efforts to aid this beleagured state.

Splendid-beef sausages all round!

Assuming no DoW on Russia by Great Britain

Prussia (@Cuthbert) and Great Britain (@Kolbex) please inform me of your dispositions of the Algerian and Swedish forces, respectively. After this I will hang an updated map and Vassal File. When this is done, we will move into the Reinforcement Phase.

Austria expended much effort to smuggle Feldmarschall-leutnant Mack out of Prague in advance of an invasion that has yet to arrive. Karl loves this sort of thing though, and relished the chance to give Boney the slip again as in Paris several years ago. He spent a week recuperating at the palace of the Duke of Roudnice and was treated to a private performance of young Ludwig’s Third Symphony. I am not as fond of the composer as my brother Rudolf, but he does seem to have taken up the mantle of Austrian genius that Mozart so early and tragically abandoned last decade.

I have rousted General Mack from his idleness and sent him to Mantua to command the troops there.

No changes.

When @Kolbex replies, I believe he can also declare when he wants to do his sea phase, unless I’ve forgotten a step.

EDIT I’ve forgotten Russia, my apologies.


#303

No moves at this time, my lord.

No inputs on this phase.
