    I've just spent a number of hours reading through the whole of this AAR (although I've been a lurkAAR on the forums for a couple of months now, I've only just come across this AAR), and I have to say I've loved every minute of it. The humour reminds me of the kind of humour I (try to) use, and the odd .gif I think really adds another level of coolness to the whole thing. Congrats on writing such a great AAR, I wish I were capable of the same.

    And it seems I joined at the most critical point in the Horde's existence. The big question is, will Chikagga have the skill to regain his lost lands, or will the Horde remain divided forever? At least we can be thankful that the uzbeks no longer are around to have revived their monstrosity of a Khanate...

    Wow, this is going to be though. War with the Blue Horde and Austria at the same time.

    Well it's only natural that a large empire which everybody hates should be divided. IRL that always happened. Well you've got about 90 years to get it back.... or not

    Where will break free next?

    Shouldn't Mesopotania be the Red Horde? Only they're by the Red Sea...
    If the universe is of infinite size, it must have infinite space. In this infinite space, an infinite number of different things must be able to happen. If an infinite number of different things can happen, there must be everytinhg happening somewhere. Including stuff you only dream about. So, technically, dreams do come true. If you can be bothered to go halfway across the universe.

    Good gracious! It's all falling apart!

    Well, I guess you have to keep it interesting somehow.

    A swift response to all these upstarts is in order. I hope you have a permanent CB on them all? Some of their lands have been Horde teritory for so long - you deserve a shield on them.

    Duke Wellington, I'm still way behind on this, so my comment is in reply to an update from long ago, when you were still in the 1660s fighting Sweden. I just loved the pics showing Sweden invading your ally Fars in Persia, while Fars retaliated by sending their whole army through Kazan toward the Swedish border!

    Your "final solution" to the Uzbek problem was ... chilling. But something tells me there will be more.

    I salute you for steadfast progress on your great AAR, and keeping in model Khanesque behavior through the whole thing!

    Terraferma - Very right indeed.

    Chief Ragusa - Not laughing stock for long I hope.

    Saulta - Not a good age though.

    stnylan - Where do you think I shall take it?

    Tomczas - Four empires but rightfully one. You may just get your wish.

    J. Passepartout - Now you're instigating revolts? I think the Horde's Ministry of Love better keep a closer watch upon you.

    Lord Skane - Genius show. I hope.....

    Storey - It is kind of depressing.

    Falastur - Thanks and welcome to the forums. No uzbeks is indeed good, but its only a small blessing really.

    Freddan - I shan't be easy thats for sure. But the Horde will overcome, it has to.

    Rotten Venetic - Quite right. I like to keep it realistic if possible. But getting it back? Hopefully.

    SirruShan - Who knows Maybe they should be called that.

    coz1 - Yeah its better to have some fun chaos than boring smooth sailing right?

    Grundius - I don't have CBs on them at the moment, perhaps as you say it would be justified.

    Fnuco - Maybe you'll be lucky and get that.

    jwolf - Great to see you back here jwolf. That incident with the Fars and Swedish armies marching all through my lands was quite a strange occurrence. I tried to avoid any holocaust connotations with the uzbeks but it was strange how it kept coming back to that. So perhaps it was better that they were deported rather than finished off permanently. Thanks, I do enjoy somewhat roleplaying the game (though I can't to the extent that writers such as yourself or CatKnight do unfortunately).

    I have no idea. I am semi-convinced you do have an idea in the back of your head. I would probably write it up as a great tragedy after the fashion of Aeschylus, but that's because I like tragedies

    !!!

    I finally got current with the story, and ... !

    Agreed with the earlier poster -- IRL it is true that large "badboy" empires always fell apart that way, but yikes! What about your game? What about your beautiful GH?

    A technical question: when your events fired to release the new Blue, Gray, and Brown Hordes, did those lands get cleared of rebels? Or are they, too, crippled with massive revolts?

    Good luck trying to pull a rabbit out of that hat.

    The upside of all these unlikely events is that my ingame alter ego is now the richest bookkeeper in the entire Golden Horde.

    Also, where did you get those coats of arms?

    Amazing. So long, yet entertaining. Respect - for in-game modding and "Divine interventions"

    One does not simply walk into Mordor, but if one did, it would probably be the shortest walk ever.

    Alas the lure of EUIII? I hope not it's been this AAR that has inspired me to spend the last few months playing EUII while Oblivion and MTW2 sit on the shelf. Then again there might just be a DoW EUIII AAR on cards...
