Doh, I somehow missed that.

And you’re right, it should have been obvious. That’s the power of wishful thinking for you! “Hey, the Spanish economy isn’t as terrible as I thought; I can buy everything I want after all”


#429

Yours is a 16 point shift. Mine was an 80 point shift! Hard to miss…


#430

Among L’Emperor’s lesser known accomplishments was the invention of le humblebrag ;)


#431

More like acknowledgement on how expensive the winter wars were.

Economic Phase Errors

Spain (@Mark_Weston, who has mentioned it and is redoing his), Turkey (@Panzeh) and Russia (@MiquelRamirez) have made errors in their Economic Sheets. The Supply costs must be entered as negative numbers for each month ("-3" for example). Please redo your sheets and submit them soonest. As well, Russia must levy or not levy cossacks. We wait.

The revised worksheet has been sent. I don’t think I’m eligible for any other actions in this phase.

Besides, more important matters demand attention. The Red Legged Partridge is nearly out of season. His Majesty’s hounds await!


#434

Will check this asap, well spotted @Mark_Weston

#439

France will not sue for peace.

Not that we don’t WANT peace, but it’s for others to bring that about. Things are going pretty much L’Empereur’s way right now, and we did not start this war.


#440

We will not bow before the ogre.

(no to peace)


#441

I Francis I, Emperor of Austria will bow before the might of L’Empereur. I submit my request for peace with France with all humility and hope that seeing the Emperor of German states on his knees in supplication will convince His Excellency Napoleon to be clement with his terms.


#442

France demands an unconditional surrender.

Clemency is virtuous, but so is righteousness.


#443

I think “righteousness is virtuous” is somewhat of a tautology…


#444

We are French speakers!


#445

A wise man once said “Il n’y a que deux puissances dans le monde, le sabre et l’esprit. A la longue, le sabre est toujours battu par l’esprit.”

Austria will place no conditions on peace.

#447

Austria engaged in this war, hoping the coalition with England and Prussia would be enough to hurt the mighty, peaceful French Empire. But peace is won, not given, and France was willing to win hers.

Now two of the British allies have bent their knee. They have done the dirty work for a Great Britain that has not done much other than posturing.

Our terms will make sure Austria thinks more carefully the next time the British approach them.

C.1a - Austria loses 6 random corps. Factors in the corps are lost.
C.3 - Austria pays war reparations. Either 66 next economic phase or 44 each of the 2 next economic phases (Austria chooses).
C.4 - Austria gives control of Venetia and Romagna to France (Venetia becomes conquered. Romagna, being part of the Cisalpine Republic, rejoins it). Austria cedes Bohemia to France
