    Congratulations, merrick! Well-earned I say

    On a related note, it seems to have been quite a while since the first post (with index) has been updated ...

    I confess I have been remiss in reading this one, but I have sampled merrick's work before and have no doubt he deserves the award.

    OK, so it was slightly more than a week, but it was a tough decision.
    I liked Inka Pachacuti ("Attendant!"), from Amob_m_s's Inca AAR; and Nerubien's heretic Pope may become a classic.

    But I have to give the award to the ever-optimistic Thomas Braunfeld, Diplomat of Austria, from akaioi's wonderful Little Pink Wieners AAR. (Read the whole thing, it's worth it. Some people can make the psuedo-history style work. Fewer can do good comedy. Very few can do both.)

    When i saw the link i thought it might have been for Rustem. Close call i'd say between the two.
    And congrats to all concerned, of course.

    Wow!

    I have to say I'm very happy to have gotten the nod. Thanks Merrick! I'm glad you're enjoying the story ... I love writing it. It was AARs that got me to buy EUIII in the first place. After printing out some classic EUII Ebessen and MrT AARs to read on the bus, I knew I *had* to get my hands on the game.

    The best part of the award is that it gives me an excuse to read more AARs, to pick next week's designee.

    Tskb18: When I saw the award right after the Sivas update I thought it might have been for Rustem also, but thinking about it, ol' Rust is kind of a gloomy Gus, and it is Thomas who has the key insights. And who can resist Thomas and his tinted monocle? It really rakes in the frauleins, you know. I do have more plans for Herr Braunfeld, so we haven't seen the last of him.

    (Minor note: I don't know the best place to mention it, but my apologies to Paradox for desecrating the HOI logo for the "Hearts of Iron ... Chefs" installment. I will edit or remove it if need be)

    Again, thanks for the award and don't be shy about checking out the story!

    Thanks again, and new nominee tonight!

    Hey folks, thanks again for the good words. I have tried to dedicate my reign to the spread of joy, love, the clangor of battle against the heathen, and, of course, good character writing!

    God willing and the creek don't rise, I should be able to post up the new winner tonight.
