This is my first AAR, though I've played the game for a couple months now. The first update will come over the next couple days.
As I've never tried an uncivilized country, I'm trying a GC as Japan. This should be difficult, as I'm not a great player.
These are my personal goals/house rules.
1) To be recognized as a major power (Japan must be a civilized nation at the end of the game in the top ten).
2) To not compromise national values (Gradual change to democracy and civilization--no self-inflicted revolutions).
3) To support other Asian nations in throwing off the European yoke.
4) To not use any major exploits (if I perform an action that a reader deems exploitative, I will discontinue it).
Again, the first update will come by the weekend. Thanks in advance for reading my work. Any and all constructive comments are appreciated.
