The Diplomatic Pouch Shortcuts

The DP Council

The Diplomatic Pouch has undergone some major changes over its history. Originally developed as a Web magazine published five times a year and maintained by one person alone, by its fifth issue it had grown into something quite different: The Pouch is now the Web site for and about Diplomacy. As The Pouch grew, so did the number of people needed to maintain the site.

We are the DP Council, the caretakers of The Diplomatic Pouch:

Manus Hand (
Our fearless leader, founder of all things Pouch-related, and all-powerful overseer thereof. Thanks to the efforts of everyone listed below, now concentrates on and running the DPjudge section of The Pouch.

Most Council members contribute regularly to The Zine and share responsibilities for making sure the entire site is well-managed and attractive. Many heads are much better than one, but we can still use help. We're constantly looking for qualified and dedicated individuals to help out. If you are interested in helping us, contact the Councillor nearest you.

We hope that you enjoy The Diplomatic Pouch. If you have any questions or comments, please let us know.
