    First, again many thanks to Alfredian for the nomination & to all for the supportive congratulations ... again just to say very much appreciated.

    Going back to Rensslaer's orginal post in this thread there's something about adding a comment about a current favourite AAR & why. I'll skip on that as I'm currently enjoying quite a few and they range from completely focussed on reporting on game play to character driven narratives to history books (and with all these jumbled up). I would like to emphasise the point that Alfredian made - its great to see Rome has seen such an upsurge of great AARs, with and without mods. Another board that has sprung to life recently is the AGEOD one with now 3 for you all to enjoy. Even if you don't have any AGEOD games they are great AARs, lots of period details and an impressive insight into a very different game design approach to Paradox ... & they range from the Seven Years War to the Russian Civil War.

    Anyway, who next? Well its a hard choice as there are a lot of commentators who'se posts I read and enjoy almost as much as the AAR. They are variously insightful into the game being reported, witty or just adding to the commnunity of writer & readers that most AARs collect.

    So my nominee embodies all these talents, was one of the first commentators to my very first AAR, has engaged in debates as various as the merits of the Soviet 'Easterns' over Hollywood 'Westerns' and whether Irn Bru is in breach of various treaties limiting the spread of chemical weapons .... I give you ... (no Harry its not you, even if it seems you have also taken over Suenik) ... Stuyvesant .... as the next fan of week.

    Remember, whatever the question, the answer on 18 September is Yes ...

    Congratulations, Stuyvesant! It would be superfluous in me to point out that this is war... um, well-deserved, I meant to say! Very well deserved indeed!

    More seriously, a post from Stuyvesant is always a pleasure. He follows closely, and sometimes knows the characters and plot better than the author. In short, he is the ideal reader - faithful, prescient, involved, informed.

    Congratulations!

    Thank you, loki100 for the award and thanks, everyone, for the congratulations.

    For me, AARland has been, and continues to be, like a magical candystore: there's something for every taste, there are countless interesting people from all over the world and all walks of life (yet all sharing at least one basic interest: historic strategy games), and everything's completely free. The only currency is the comment, which is pretty darn cheap.

    Where else could you find such a range of fascinating stories, from in-depth gameplay analysis to full-blown space opera, from gritty war sagas to barely-PG-13 smutfests (I'm looking at you, Mount and Blade: Warband AAR forum...), to comic masterpieces rivaling War and Peace in length (that would be the Crovan saga, sadly prematurely ended after roughly 700 years of bear and outhouse-fuelled mayhem)?

    And where else can you enjoy all these pleasures in such a respectful and grownup environment? I rarely venture to other forums, but every time I do, I'm more impressed with the civility of the Paradox forums. It's not just a mod thing (praise be unto them all), it's an attitude that people seem to pick up here, and it's one of the main reasons I'm still coming back to this place nearly every night.
    So, thanks again and I hope to see you all around, reading, commenting and generally keeping AARland this wonderful place that I always enjoy visiting.
