Edwardian (3rd Edition)

Here are some ideas for improvements of Edwardian based on observations of games being played on vDiplomacy (http://www.vdiplomacy.com/variants.php?variantID=110).

Most alterations seek to improve Britain's defensive position in the British Isles (very difficult with 3 SCs bordering Irish Sea in 2nd Ed.), decrease Germany's compact strength, cause Austria-Hungary to be slightly more compact, and give Turkey more available opening options for SCs (among other things).

Edwardian Diplomacy

Game Commencement
A game of Edwardian Diplomacy begins with the Spring 1901 Orders phase.

Victory Conditions
There are 51 total supply centers and 26 needed to win.

Great Power Home Supply Centers
Austria-Hungary: Vienna (Vie), Budapest (Bud), Trieste (Tri), Zagreb (Zag)
Britain: London (Lon), Belfast (Blf), Cairo (Cai), Edinburgh (Edi), Liverpool (Lvp)
France: Paris (Par), Algiers (Alg), Brest (Bre), Lyon (Lyo), Marseilles (Mar)
Germany: Berlin (Ber), Dresden (Dre), Essen (Ess), Frankfurt (Fra), Kiel (Kie), Stuttgart (Stu)
Italy: Rome (Rom), Bologna (Bol), Milan (Mil), Naples (Nap)
Russia: St. Petersburg (StP), Kiev (Kiv), Moscow (Mos), Riga (Rig), Sevastopol (Sev), Warsaw (War)
Turkey: Constantinople (Con), Damascus (Dam), Erzurum (Erz), Smyrna (Smy)

Initial Placement
Austria-Hungary: Army Vienna (A Vie), Army Bosnia (A Bos), Army Budapest (A Bud), Fleet Trieste (F Tri)
Britain: Fleet London (F Lon), Fleet Cairo (F Cai), Fleet Edinburgh (F Edi), Fleet Gibraltar (F Gib), Army Liverpool (A Lvp)
France: Army Paris (A Par), Army Algiers (A Alg), Fleet Brest (F Bre), Army Lyon (A Lyo), Army Marseilles (A Mar)
Germany: Army Berlin (A Ber), Army Dresden (A Dre), Army Essen (A Ess), Army Frankfurt (A Fra), Fleet Kiel (F Kie), Army Stuttgart (A Stu)
Italy: Army Rome (A Rom), Fleet Apulia (F Apu), Army Milan (A Mil), Fleet Naples (F Nap)
Russia: Army St. Petersburg (A StP), Army Kiev (A Kiv), Army Moscow (A Mos), Fleet Riga (F Rig), Fleet Sevastopol (F Sev), Army Warsaw (A War)
Turkey: Fleet Constantinople (F Con), Army Damascus (A Dam), Army Erzurum (A Erz), Army Macedonia (A Mac)

Special Notes On Placement
Several Armies and Fleets begin the game occupying non-supply center spaces supplied remotely from vacant home supply center spaces. These include: Army Bosnia (A Bos) supplied from Zagreb (Zag); Fleet Gibraltar (F Gib) supplied from Belfast (Blf); Army Macedonia (A Mac) supplied from Smyrna (Smy); Fleet Apulia (F Apu) supplied from Bologna (Bol).

Special Rules & Map Notes
Gibraltar: The Gibraltar (Gib) space functions as it was originally designed in the 1900 variant by B. M. Powell; fleets and armies may occupy the space, Fleets and armies being able to move from both Morocco (Mor) and Spain (Spa). Gibraltar also acts as a sea space for convoys with armies being allowed to be convoyed through a fleet occupying Gibraltar.
Split Coastal Spaces:
- Spain (Spa) is divided into north, west, and south coasts.
- St. Petersburg (StP) is divided into north and south coasts.
Land Bridges: There is a land bridge that connects Belfast (Blf) and Clyde (Cly) for army and fleet movement.
Canal Spaces: Cairo (Cai), Constantinople (Con), and Kiel (Kie) are canal spaces that allow for fleet and army movement without split coasts.
Miscellaneous:
- Ionian Sea (Ion) and Tyrrhenian Sea (Tyr) do not border.
- Denmark (Den) and Sweden (Swe) border for land and sea movement, but Denmark does not split the coast of Sweden (as in Classic Diplomacy).
