    Thanks again to everyone for the congratulations and to Wave for his kind nomination. I'm sure my fans have already noticed my failure to update, and I'm so sorry! Hopefully it'll be fixed this week...for once.

    I'm also late in handing this over, although from what I understand it should be the nearest sunday to 1 week, making this only a day late. Nonetheless, I've spent what spare time I have reading up and checking on things. The winner for me isn't the longest-running AAR writer by a long shot, but I genuinely believe has written the best characters of any AAR I've read in the last few months. There are a lot of great character writers out there but in the end, I had to choose my favourite: Apelstav for all of the fantastically written characters in his AAR The Curse of Brothers. Detailing the feuding Spanish monarchs with fantastic personality and detail, he paints a wonderful picture, especially of their sister Urraca, whose ambitions and desires are frustrated by her gender's assigned role.

    Congratulations Apelstav, you deserve it.

    Thanks everyone for the congratulations and especially thanks to Saithis for the nomination. I can't begin to express the honor it is being nominated by the author of the North Star-series, having been a fan of Piety years ago (though I must admit to not having read it in its entirety) when I was but a mere lurker in the CK1-forum. Now to finding someone to pass the award to in a week. There's a bloody lot of fine AAR's to read through and choose from.

    Thanks yet again!

    Passing it forward

    Hello everyone and thanks once more for all congratulations, and special thanks to Saithis for the nomination!

    So... time for me to pass this on then. Having read a round a lot the last week, venturing out from the CKII-forum for the first time since the game came out basically I soon realized there's a bloody lot of good writers in AARland and I found myself cursing Saithis name (you only did this to keep me from writing that song about Harald, didn't you?) quite a few times. In the end, however, I found myself in the position of doing the exact opposite of what Saithis did by nominating me - that is passing the award to an up-and-coming-all-brand-new-AAR-author - and instead nominating one of the veterans in the forum.

    Having been a lurker in AARland for far longer than I've been writing myself (or even posting in the general forums), there's been a few AARs over the years that I would like to say made me start writing here. Among these we find one that I've followed since its early beginnings in the CKI-forum and as it later was ported unto EUIII and just kept on rolling - the AAR I'm speaking of is the Baltikja-series written by the excellent Mr. Capiatlist.

    Following the fates of the Saxon exiles in their struggle and rise as a great power at the shores of the Baltic Sea, Mr. Capiatlist have written many remarkable characters over the years, but one who always held a special place in my heart is the Prussian exile-prince Ălle who recently returned in a sub-story concerning his exploits in the Iberian crusades. Ălle's story is a tragic one, one of losing what you thought made you whom you are only to find it again in the most unlikely of places and Mr. Capiatlist portrays Ălle's internal struggle and growing maturity and insight in a beautiful way.

    So, to the point then: Congratulations Mr. Capiatlist and Ălle Eadbertson for you are Best Character Writer of the Week! The AAR you find here and the latest part of Ălle's story is to be found from here and onward.

    This was an very unexpected thing to wake up to. So, thank you Apelstav for this honor; it has probably set the tone for the whole rest of my day. Hopefully I can use that energy to get... you know... some writing done.
