All orders in and timely. Thank you. Note, we have a misorder. Per the house rules, a missing unit designation (army or fleet) will not invalidate an order, but an inaccurate designation will. Be careful, people.

Some suggested music to listen to while reviewing this adjudication:; and

Deadline for Spring Retreat 1702 is Tuesday, 2 April 2018, 8:00 pm. New York time. If the lone retreat is sent early and labeled final, I will adjudicate early.

Press: We have some. :^)
Anonymous: Well, 1702 is upon us and time for dithering is gone. Neutrals have been claimed, apologies for confusing moves made and lies told. The only question that remains - who did you believe and did you guess right? Cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war boys!
Beijing to Board: Don’t think I don’t know. I’ve heard all the jokes you’ve been secretly exchanging: “Once you take one of China’s dots, you’ll feel the need to take another one an hour later.” “How many Chinese units does it take to replace a light bulb? We’ll never know; they’re still in the Dark Ages.” Yeah, yeah, yeah. Just wait’ll I send a couple of junks your way, laden with cannon. And we invented gunpowder!
Persian Times - December 1701 : Hormuz, PERSIA: Undisclosed source from the capitol say that the Shah has finally fired his calligrapher. For years this distinguished news source has been reporting on the shoddy work produced by Sulidumb the Auto-Corrector, the court calligrapher. Various reports have highlighted that clear issues with delineating the differences between o's and i's has cost many a merchant precious coin. Our source now reports that the Shah has been bitten by the o vs. i bug and has exiled Sulidumb from Persia.
