    Weekly AAR Showcase: Struggle for Survival


    Picture Courtesy: Singleton Mosby

    Here is some elaboration on the rules for passing this on:

    a) primary responsibility for keeping these awards moving rests with the awarder. If you haven't heard from your nominee by the following sunday, then its your responsibility (& pleasure) to pick again;
    b) if the award goes missing for two weeks, one of the mods will post in the thread. This might indicate that it will be passed on asap. Lets face it we all take breaks from the forum and its unfair to deny someone a chance to pick their nominee just because they are exceptionally busy or taking a holiday;
    c) on the other hand, this might indicate that the award is stuck. At that stage making a nomination for a new nominee is first come, first served. The proposals around voting are too difficult to manage in reality and the delight of all these awards is they are idiosyncratic, its what an individual llkes, not, as with the ACAs, what we as an AAR community like.

    Organization of Post:
    1. Weekly AAR Showcase Winners (reverse chronological, by month)

    -------------------------------------------------------
    Guidelines:

    The Weekly Showcase was and is designed for all of AARland, from EU1 to HOI2. The idea is to select a single AAR (as opposed to a writer, that's covered under 'WritAAR of the Week') that deserves everyone's attention and focus on it. The only way this will work is with your participation.

    1. Your AAR is selected! Congratulations! Please take a moment to say 'Hi' to your admirers!

    2. After one week, please choose your successor. It can be any AAR for a Paradox published or created game on these forums, within the following guidelines:

    A. Try not to select an AAR whose writer recently received another award. If the awards start parroting each other we've defeated the purpose.

    B. Try to select an AAR in a different game/category than yours. This award is for all AARland and if people don't like game x, then they'll lose interest in participating.

    3. Please add a comment or two about the AAR *and a link* when you reply nominating your successor.

    4. Please post in the winning AAR's thread and/or PM the author letting him know he's won.

    Thanks!
    ------------------------------------
    First Nomination:

    Now then....as I mentioned in my last article, singling out one of many great AARs out there now is difficult. However, for our first Showcase I'd like to point out 54 - 40' or... by Machiavellian. This Victoria AAR relates the story of Columbia, a former British dominion located in what's now Washington and British Columbia from 1836.

    I liked your idea of an independent North American west-coast republic as soon as I saw it.

    As with other secessionist movements, there was a half-serious effort during the early days of the Civil War to split California and Oregon into an independent country. Yours was formational, not secessionist, but the idea is the same, and it's very plausible. One of the 'selling points' for a trans-continental railroad was the fear that distance would alienate the West Coast from the US as the US had been alientated from Britain - and with similar results.

    I've particularly enjoyed your explanations of the political juggling. With your constant picking on poor Mexico ( ) you've got quite an extensive country there...

    Good luck with your excellent AAR. I'll be reading.

    A most worthy effort, Catknight, and a most worthy pick!

    Machiavellian, you have great AAR and this showcase for it is very well deserved. I hope others will take a moment and check it out. I imagine they too will enjoy it as I have.

    Thank you Catknight! I must also thank those who have commented here, as well as those fans who have continued reading my AAR. It is an honor to kick of the return of the Showcase of the week, though a tad intimidating as I am not sure what else to say.

    As Catknight said, this AAR takes place in the Northwestern corner of North America and currently it has covered the history of the region from 1836-1863, though I intend to continue till the end (either defeat or 1920). This AAR began as both my return to AAR writing, which due to time and other issues I had taken a break from, and to Victoria which I had only dabbled with (some may remember my brief cherokee aar) but never really mastered. Originally I was going to do a narrative based AAR set during the crusades via EU2's mongol empire mod. Unfortunately, time and real life caught up with me and it just proved too much. I have still been writing for it some, though i'll probably not continue posting it till its complete, which will be a long while. One of the problems I have with narrative AAR's is that I like to play the game while updating, so that I am surprised along with my readers and can implement their suggestions, etc. I find that very hard to do when writing a detailed story.

    So I wanted to play Victoria and I wanted to do an AAR in a history format that I knew I could handle. Inspired by previous AAR's of a similiar style, such as El Presidentse's Theft, Rhetoric, and Fixed Bayonets, Jape's 2nd Civil War: Manhattan Commune, and Voshkod's Fractured America series.. just to name a few. I was fairly set on playing something in North America. At first I thought about returning to the Cherokee's or going for a California AAR, but at the time I had been reading about Polk and suddenly I got the idea - what about something in Oregon territory. I did a little more research and found out that Oregon territory briefly had their own constitution and almost became independant before being sold out by its 'congress'. I got some ideas from all this, modified the political parties slightly and have just been running with it since, occassionally doing research or hunting for pictures. The fact the the United States in game went against Polk's party only further aided the tale, as I fully intended to tell it with Henry Clay beating Polk in the election for story intregrity anyway.

    I hope more will come check out my tale and feel free to comment, critism and praise are both welcome. I'll stand back and be quiet now, at least till saturday when I can pass this fine award on.

    Well it is that time again. It has been enjoyable having this award all week, but now I must pass the torch on. It was a tough decision but I ultimately decided to give this fine award to an AAR I have been reading for quite a long time. An EU2 AAR set during the rise of Napoleon. "Vive L'Empereur! Glory of the Eagles!" is written by TreizeV and is an excellent Narrative tale that more or less follows two brothers from the south of France as they struggle to adapt to the world during and after the Revolution.

    Ah great to see the showcase back and running!

    First off, Thanks Machiavellian! And i must also give a hearty thank you to all the loyal readers who have kept track of this AAR since i started writing in November 2003. Scary huh? Didn't think it would last that long I want to thank all of you for your patience, especially during the times when i experienced horrible technical difficulties (Such as my EU2 cd burning out) :P

    As Machiavellian pointed out, this AAR is a narrative/novel style AAR following three main characters. The two brothers from France, and ultimately Napoleon from 1789 to the end of the Napoleonic wars. This is the second AAR i've started, and its still going lol. I was very much inspired to write this one by Director's "Who wants to be Napoleon" and LD's Napoleonic wars: Account by an english officer AAR. After reading so many novels of the Napoleonic war from the British perspective, I've always wondered what a French perspective on the Napoleonic wars would be so voila, i began writing. Of course, the fact that Napoleon is my favourite historical figure helped too. Another reason why i love this period is just....the atmosphere of it all. I am very intrigued with the attitudes and interactions of eighteenth century people, and oddily enough, the parts of the AAR i most enjoy writing about are the interactions between Generals and their staffs during battle weird eh?

    At this point, i'd say i'm about between 3/5ths and 2/3rds done my AAR. But with Midterms and other committments i probably won't go into hyperdrive until April hits. I hope to finish this tale, or at least up to Russia soon

    once again, thanks Machiavellian for choosing this! And thanks to everyone who has been keeping up to tabs on this. I won't disappoint you i will finish it eventually haha.

    Cheers!

    Great choice! Having actually read a good bit of coz1's AAR, I can personally say that it is worthy of an OscAAR, if they were still giving them out.

    This is an unusual AAR in a lot of ways, but it is a major work by a talent who is really hitting his stride. If you want to read a vivid, cinematic AAR with memorable - even haunting - characters, then this is the one for you.

    An excellent choice for showcase. And if you think I'm exaggerating, go read the first two pages. You won't come back until you've read it all - be warned. It is that good.
