Diplomacy the game

I've started playing a PBEM version of Diplomacy. Been many years since I played the board game. I re-discovered it via the Diplomatic Pouch website. For those that are intrested how it works, basically emails are sent to 'Judge' programs that receive the email and process the information based on a pre-set series of commands.

eg: to send a message to all players

signon <power><game name> <password>
<your message text>

As Austria I start with two armies and a navy and it'll be interesting to see how I go. The map is available here
