Hi guys,

since I received a full set of orders and no request for me to delay the adjucation until after the deadline, the winter chill's arriving somewhat early this year. And as the Baltic freezes over, the wharves in the Duchy of Courland are being kept busy by Poland's first-ever building of a Baltic squadron! This is a first for this variant. Roger, the Pole in the previous playtest, was however the first to build a Polish squadron, albeit one designated for Black Sea duty rather than for patrolling Baltic waters.

That being said, it's a long way for Poland to project such naval power from Courland, the erstwhile "Holland of the East", as the enterprising Kettler dukes of Courland were able to. After all, they founded Courlandian colonies as far off as Africa and the West Indies...

1655 AD has been by all accounts a year of continued East-West struggle, with Russia and Northern Germany being arguably the focal points of military action. Shall these trends continue into 1656? Stay tuned.

Given players' Easter schedules, I've shifted the spring deadline to Wednesday, 7 April.


Cheers,

Charles

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.
