    An Ace heh. Well my, this was unexpected. I've spent most of the last few days trying to think of something to say.

    Firstly therefore, thank you to Lord Boreal for nominating me. Five times won now, and it is still a thrill every time. Indeed, I think I appreciate this award more now than when I first won it. And of all our weekly awards, this is the one that I like the most. But then, it is the one that fits closest to my ethos, such that it is. My own desire for comments has driven me to comment elsewhere. Perhaps it has something to do with my old school motto - Go and do Thou Likewise. Of course, before me there were others who equally inspired me by visiting my first AAR.

    And now of course, with the advent of EU3, we have many new AARs to read. And, I am very happy to say, many new writers. Therefore, if I might ask one favour of you all this week, it is head over to the EU3 AAR forum, find an AAR by one of these new authors, read it, and comment in it. This will not, trust me, be an act of charity because, on the basis of the what we have already seen, we are the ones being enriched by their presence.

    Of the full-game AARs take a look at these new writAARs:

    Sails on the horizon - An England 1453+ AAR by Scouse Mouse

    Last Sons of the Angevin Empire - A Provence AAR by Brian Bóruma

    Of Crowns and Roses - An English AAR by Alerias

    And doubtless there will be many more.

    And with that, I'm going to step off the podium, and gives some thought to whom to nominate at the weekend. Oh, and play some EU3

    Indeed I have already done so, im currently following Alerias' England AAR, perhaps i shall follow Scouse's too, just to see how much they differ

    Its so hard to recognize you with your new avatar. Thanks for recommending the EUIII AARs, I think we'll see many more soon.

    stnylan's been following many of my AARs for quite some time. That takes some serious dedication and interest and masochism, with the way I update and abandon.

    Congratulations, again... The gold standard of AARland encouragement gets his just reward again.

    Also thanks for the EU3 suggestions, I'll look into them - when I have the time and my buggy wireless co-operates.

    What I find impressive is that, yes these are all "new writers", but they are REALLY new writers! Except for and kind of including Mr. Boruma, whose name I know from somewhere, these sound like all newcomers to me! That's exciting in itself!

    ...though, since this is all about being a fan, perhaps someone can remind the writers to advertise their works in their signatures!

    Time to pass the baton on, and thank you all again for your kind comments.

    As ever there are many worthy contenders, some who have not yet won this award, and some that have. But I have in mind one person who, according to the list in the first post, at any rate, has not won this award for about a year. Yet you will find him all over the AAR-fora. If he is not quite so prolific as he used to be, it is because he finally got sucked into writing. And when he did his dedicated commentating ensured he had a large audience. Today he is perhaps better known for a resurgent British Empire, but he remains someone who crafts excellent comments, and gives encouraging support to earnest writers.

    I give you, the king of dragons...
