OK, after having read the boards, and especially the AARs, for a few months now, I have decided to have a go at an AAR of my own. The fact that Warspite has recently started an Austrian AAR make me a bit nervous, but my style (both in writing and game play) will be different, and, as will become clear, my game premise really requires that I play Austria.
I am playing Austria in the Grand Campaign, v 1.07, no betas. I have random missions on, to add a bit of interest.
I am setting myself the following goals:
- Discover and colonise Australia
- Avoid taking any sort of loan, and keep inflation to a minimum at all times
- Convert all Christians to Catholicism
The style I have in mind means that I will probably make slow progress, but I have an ending in mind for my characters, so even if I don't make it through to 1820, the story will hopefully have a clear finish.
