    Real Men Do It Alphabetically: An AARgau

    Ah, Crusader Kings. The red-headed stepchild of the Paradox Four, it is a game that really is set apart from the rest. For you control not a country, but a dynasty, always in flux. Also, the AI is very proactive in long-range overseas campaigns. And you can't play as about a third of the political entities on the map, despite that third containing some of the most awesome countries in the game.

    And the game's not very difficult. Surprisingly undifficult, in fact. Even starting as a lone count, all one really needs to get bumped up to king is a little bit of luck and patience, waiting for a king to have an eligible daughter and few male heirs. I just became King of Georgia this morning. Really, with the ever-shifting dynasties and unpredictable political borders, with alliances dissolving at the death of a single man and crusades being called off for two bits, only to be redeclared three days later, the game does not lend itself well to exciting challenges such as leading the armies of Haile Selassie as Ethiopia in HOI2, or leading the armies of Menelik II as Ethiopia in Vicky, or leading the armies of Zara Yakob as Ethiopia in EU2. I suppose that I could play Nubia, or play with house rules that restrict things like marrying Icelandic women to my Balkan king and machinegunning an entire line of succession to death in one day. But both of those are boring, the first because it's not really Ethiopia, but Nubia, which is totally different trust me, and the second because such rules will be subjective and I'll still get a game that's too easy.

    So what to do? Of course, I am an unrepentant genius, and was bound to come up with something, which I did. An idea that is really worthy of me. And that is to play the game by annexing every province on the map. A standard way to play, but for this game, I will attempt to do it alphabetically. And according to the following list of all provinces in alphabetical order, it would make much sense to do it as the County of Aargau, which I am. Normal/Normal because I couldn't be bothered to change the setting, 1066 Campaign, Crusader Kings 1.05 vanilla, as any other versions are for Cathars. You heard me.

    Every province in alphabetical order:

    Code:
    	Aargau (1066)
    	Abauj (1067-1093) 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20

    RMDA: Origins.

    Chapter 0: Aargau

    As told with many pictures. And a moderate amount of words.

    (Formats, fonts, layouts, and even this little disclaimer appropriated thoughtlessly from phargle's
    Knud Knýtling, Prince of Denmark (and other assorted tales))



    1066



    This is Werner von Habsburg, Count of Aargau. He drew this himself.




    This is his wife, Reginlind. Like God and Cher, she has but one name.


    She also looks disturbingly similar to Werner's sister Richenza, which is disturbing enough that I will never mention it again.

    This is Werner's son Otto. Werner also has a daughter, but she is of absolutely no importance, and will never be until she turns 16. Then she will warrant one mention as she is married off to some foreign guy, the mention being that the marriage gave us a pittance of prestige, and for the rest of her life she shall be nothing worthy of note in this AAR. Medieval times, gotta love 'em.

    This is the breadth of Werner von Habsburg's almighty domains. With a 2.40 Base Income, that's pretty good! And by the way, if you are wondering if these von Habsburgs are the same von Habsburgs that ended up ruling half of Europe for a while in our history, then you are right. These are the very same Habsburgs. So if I end up conquering half of Europe, I won't be that far off the mark, eh? No wonder they could do it too, starting with 2.40 Base Income...

    This is Werner's Stewardess, Reginhild. I would say something about the wife managing finances being typical, but that is a weak joke. And this way I can still tell the joke while being absolved of all consequences.



    This is Werner's Chancelloress. I do not know what is wrong with her face.




    This is Werner's Spy Mistress. She is actually competent at her job.



    Why did anonymous4401 post such a boring update where nothing happened? Why is anonymous4401 copying phargle's style wholesale? Copying wouldn't even be an apt descriptor for it, for it is more like anonymous4401 hunting down and killing phargle, and writing updates while wearing his skin. What is anonymous4401 doing in Crusader Kings anyways? He never comes here! Go away, anonymous4401! All will be revealed in the next exciting episode of Real Men Do It Alphabetically, an AARgau!

    What is genius but madness applied? And I will take your post as a further sign of how genius I am. Look at me, I bridged the 'AARland divide' with the SHEER FORCE OF MY GENIUS.

    I notice Werner has surrounded himself with female advisors. A great fan of life drawings, is he? So, this AAR is going to follow standard operating procedure for the Hapsburg: produce lots of boys, especially bastards; marry them off to heiresses and then have the legitimate line take them over.

    Love the title, love the idea, and rip off Phargle all you want, it's entirely his fault seeing how he hasn't posted an update too long!

    Very few phargle imitation AAR’s catch my eye, but this one really looks to be almost as good as the original. Great work!

    looks lovely. here's looking at distilling that pure genius through four centuries of inbreeding - not that you'll have much choice after marrying into every house in Europe.

    EDIT:
    I would say something about the wife managing finances being typical, but that is a weak joke. And this way I can still tell the joke while being absolved of all consequences.


    Reminds me of the Shinchan episode where Hiro (dad) tries to get Misae to up his allowance... with predictable results

    You know, I saw the thread you posted in the CK general forum a while back, and thought to myself, "I wonder, maybe he's planning an AAR where he conquers each province in alphabetical order...nah, that's just utterly ridiculous!"

    True story.

    So since your going in alphabetical order, what are you going to do when you inherit titles out of order?
