Hi guys,
 
Nick Powell has kindly volunteered as the new
Archduke and that surely is appreciated by all of us.
 
Now there are a number of draw proposals on
the table:
 
- a Polish-Turkish two-way draw
 
- a French-Polish-Turkish three-way
draw
 
- an English-French-Polish-Turkish four-way draw
 
- a six-way draw including all survivors
 
I must confess that I've been rather confused by the various public
statements regarding draws. So I'd appreciate renewed votes on the draw
proposals listed above.
 
The deadline will coincide with the new Winter 1659 deadline, Wednesday 6
PM CET. The fall adjucation is attached further below, amended as necessary for
Nick's contact info and the new deadline.
 
Happy dipping!
 
Charles

Hallo zusammen,
 
Emperor Louis V managed to defend his beleaguered throne for another year
and indeed has managed to wrest the Electorate of Saxony from the Habsburg
pretender to the imperial crown. Yet the Bourbons have suffered defeats
elsewhere, for Switzerland was conquered by an Austrian army while the remnants
of Cromwell's Scandinavian expeditionary forces descended upon wealthy and
papist Flanders. Considering how Cromwell's army has treated the equally
Catholic Irish, this is probably not such a good time to be Flemish... This also
incidentally mean that the Protestants in the Empire have a new champion for
their cause after having had no greater power to turn to after the demise of
Sweden.
 
In the Mediterranean the Sultan lurched forwards into Tunis and the Western
Mediterranean after having lately focused only on Italian conquests.
 
The Polish republic has equally sought to expand her influence westwards
and have pushed the Turks out of Greater Poland, liquidated England's erstwhile
Scandinavian empire but for a defenceless Finnish enclave and have sailed
through the Oresund.
 
All in all, quite a dynamic picture!
 
The Winter 1659 Retreats/Adjustments are due Friday, 4 June
[now 9 June!], 6 PM CET. Note that the number of adjustments for a number
of powers depends on how the two pending retreats play out. Remember that
adjustments may be made conditional on the preceding retreats.
 
Liebe Grüsse,
 
Charles
