As my first attempt at a PBEM died with the game, I will try it again. As I am playing France again, I will reuse some of the "backstory" for Liberte, Egalite, Fraternite. It will lag the game by some amount.

Set-up:

Scenario:1792
Difficulty:Blucher
Length:23 Years
Difficulty:Standard
Advanced Economy
Victory:Highest Glory

House Rules:

1. There can be no DOW on a nation or it's territories, when occupied by the declaring party.

2. No insurrections.

3. No blockading with empty container fleets!

4. No feudal reforms imposed by treaty.

5. No Coups.

6. Empty container fleets should be in moved to the far most NW North Atalantic sea zone to avoid being targets of interceptions! You may hide them in port but they could be potentially captured otherwise when a city falls.. BUT, you can move them to a home port!

7. No adjustment to other players military readiness in regards to victory conditions.

8. Any extended peace treaties need to start on the month the war ended. i.e. no extentions from the point that the normal 18 month period of peace ends.
Clarification to Above---You set back the date to start the Extended peace treaty from the time the opponent surrendered. If not it should be set to start the same turn the treaty is put into place.

9. No violation of other nations neutralities with supply depots!(no one likes this when done to them!) Unless you have that nation's permission to do so.

10. all peace treaties must be imposed within one turn after peace is imposed between the parties.
Clarification to Above, "All peace treaties must be imposed the turn after the surrender. If a player forgets to submit a treaty the turn after surrender, he will be reminded to submit a treaty with the next turn. If a player forgets to submit a treaty two turns after a surrender, the only peace treaty that may be imposed after that point may have NO terms, meaning that the game will automatically fill in the terms (requiring reparations by the losing player for a certain period of time).

11. No removal of leaders imposed by treaty.

12. Any container in an enemies capital cannot be set to "avoid combat"!

--Dateline Paris, June 6, 1792:

Today, ministers for King Louis XVI met with members of the Legislative Assembly of the Kingdom of France on urgent matters of foreign affairs. Tension between the King and the Assembly still run high, though many hope that a common foreign enemy will unite the country.

After the meeting, Maximilien Robespierre made a public statement in Paris to gathered members of the radical Paris Commune. “These foreign wars sought by our king threaten to drain the lives and treasure of our citizens for no greater purpose than boosting the monarchy. It is our sincere hope that these conflicts will rapidly come to an end."

Further comment was not forthcoming as M. Robespierre then left for a meeting of the Jacobin Club to begin shortly. It was said that this meeting of Jacobins was to determine a course of action after King Louis XVI recent veto of the bill mandating death for all French emigres currently in arms against the government.

Turn Update:
France is quickly organizing our armies and filling them out with replacements (we begin the game short nearly 70,000). Our ships remain at port for repair as most start off the game damaged.

There is more pressing matters, however, as the Holy Roman Empire (Austria) has threatened to press our war over the status of Flanders. As a result, French troops have crossed the border into Luxembourg and French messengers range across Europe looking for support.

July 1792

--Dateline: Paris, July 14, 1792

On this third anniversary of the storming of the Bastile, the Legislative Assembly met briefly to address the recent bill proposed by M. Robespierre. With the new declaration of peace between France and her enemies, M. Robespierre recommended that the Swiss Guards currently assigned to the protection of the King at Tuileries Palace be returned to active duty with the French Army.

"Our King no longer needs the protection of foreign soldiers," raged M. Robespierre, "when good Frenchmen can provide even better, more loyal, bodyguards." M. Robespierre then proposed that the King and his family be allowed to return to Versailles in the near future under the protection of handpicked National Guardsmen, stating that he felt that the strain of the King's continuous forced occupation of the Tuileries Palace in Paris was growing too great for him to bear.

Touched by this change of heart, M. Robespierre having previously been an outspoken critic of the King and the power he still wielded, the Assembly approved the bill.

It was expected that this news would be greeted by the radical members of the Paris Commune and its many Jacobin members with outrage. Instead, outside of some minor grumbling, no major protests took place.

Turn Update: As quickly as the threat of war with Austria appeared, it was gone. An agreement for the exchange of all of Flanders for $250 over several months was reached. Ceasefires were signed with both Prussia and Austria.

Such a payment will strain French coffers in the short run, especially with the explosion of French trade. At this point, France dominates (somewhat surprisingly) nearly all European trade.
