    Go cobras.

    Congrats LM+
    Snake IV used to be a regular, but not anymore. You might, however, come across him at rare occasions, but that is so seldom you'll manage.

    Congradulations LM+, step up to the podium and deliver your speech if you are so kind as to do so !!
    Thank you Spitfire_Pilot, and to all those who kindly welcomed me here.

    - I am a Yankee, an patented, unmitigated gringo. Latin America is perhaps that part of the world whose history is least known to me. Spanish? Portuguese? I was out having a beer when they handed that lot out. Yet, by some strange concurrance of chance and inspiration, Mexico and Brazil are the nations I've written my most-appreciated AARs about.

    - Paradox has created one game after another with sufficient depth and verisimilitude to allow players to adopt all sort of strategies and play styles, and pick amongst nations that suit. My chief loves in both Victoria and HOI2 are threefold, and all show up clearly in my AARs. Firstly, I dearly enjoy peacefully building up national strength and thereby earning the ability to do things with nations that would be astonishing if the half of it happened in real life. Another big joy is sea battles; I'm a fairly poor general, and not much better in the air, but I do have a real yen for ships. Thirdly, wheeling and dealing is such a joy for me. When I've got the entire world economy wrapped around my little finger, why, that's better than 50 tank divisions any day!

    - The best part about being Writer of the Week is that I will be able to choose the next writer, come Sunday. Today, however, I'd like to express my admiration for the amiable sneakiness of Warspite, whose invention of this honor has proved a most successful way to bribe more and more new people into participating more fully in the social life of the AAR forums. The great Brazilian diplomat Rio-Branco would be proud of you, sir.

    It's Sunday, and we all know what that means. After a violent struggle, LM+ was forced to surrender what was most Precious to him, and hand over the Statue of Writer of the Week to...

    lifeless, author of The Precise History of New England


    lifeless, I know you got a bad case of writer's block on your New England AAR, but I thought you wrote elegantly. Whether you choose to continue this or a different story, I know I'll enjoy reading it.
