TURN 07 ORDERS DUE Monday, April 3rd, 2000, 11:59 p.m.


Due to a problem with the old program all the turns from the very beginng were redone. This changed the tech results for all nations.

Suggestion to all who can't get their turns in on time. Send anything in is better then nothing. I will not accept a late turn. Not even one that's late by 1 hour.

Now the important question what's being done about the 5.6 version of the rules. Nothing right now. Seeing that the creator just made an update changing the 5.6.6 rules to 5.6.11. And the talk of a possible 5.7 in the works the question now goes out of why switch to a set of rules that's going to out dated in a few months. Plus not everyone has replied if they have a copy or not yet.

All movement must be shown. If it's not no movement will be done at all.

For those who has lost a nation due to war or death of it's king will need to slot a new nation to run. It can not be in the same geographic zone as the one you just lost nor can it be in any of the geographic zones that touch your former position. Example: If you were playing in China and lost your nation in one of the ways above you must slot a nation which does not exist in the geographic zone of China nor in any of the following: Central Asia, Indonesia, Japan, Pacificia and South East Asia.

Normal Turns: $3.00


Will be available via the main web page only. Make sure you gain one of these maps for your area.


I have made a few alterations to the maps. These will only be reflected on maps you get from me.

  1. Move the border between the Bay of Biscay and the Celtic Sea north, so that it is possible to move directly between the English Channel and the Bay of Biscay. Brittany no longer borders the Celtic Sea.
  2. The Dvina and Dnepr rivers no longer connect. The current border is now the northen end of the Dnepr. The Dvina extends only as far south as the Kur-Polotsk border. A level 3 canal can be built to connect the rivers.
  3. The Grand Canal in China has not be built. So the rivers of the Yangtze and Yellow don't connect.
  4. Another change it's in the Black Sea. Most will notice that there's a Black Sea and Mare Negri (French for Black Sea). Mare Negri is now called Western Black Sea. And the Black Sea half is now Eastern Black Sea.
