Here it is, my first attempt at an AAR. Before I get started, some info that you may want to know.
HOI2DD: No mods
There will only be 1 cheat used in this game one time.
There will be no pictures for several reasons
1. I am a tech moron
2. I only have 6-8 hours on Tuesday evenings to play and I wont waste it doing screen shots or pictures
3. All my posts will be done from work so I have no access to game materials
This will be done in a narrative format with a sub section for how decisions affect game play.
All that being said, I would like to give recognition to a few folks for their inspiration, direct or indirect.
To Le Ran: A Few ReincAARnations More- A Tibetan AAR. The first Asian AAR that I read that seemed to draw me to the type. And also for tea and yak butter.
To Comrade Brian: Red Star Over China. An AAR with definite star power, and has also managed to break the sixth wall. I think he is on the sixth. I’ll get back to you on that.
To Tiger of Malaysia: One Hundred Years of Reform- A Qing AAR that inadvertently gave me the idea for this AAR. Hope he finishes it.
To Earth’s Savior: Rise or Fall: A Shanxi AAR who even though he has joined the army and says that he has abandoned this, will come back and finish it. Someday.
To DollfuB: Dschingis Khan Strikes Back- a Mongoliaar. If this guy can write the AAR in German and somehow translate it to English make me figure I can do this.
To rcduggan: Kathmandu Can Do (A Nepal AAR). Though technically not a warlord, he gets honorary status since he attacked Tibet first and the story is good.
To DirtyCommiePuke: Good Ambitions- A Xib…Xibei…the green China on attempt at Chinese domination, for getting almost as many posts as Walter Model without writing a single thing. Although that Scottish thing…
To Tribolute: Risky Ambitions- A Guanxi Risk AAR to piss of Myth, who inspires me everyday to shake my head and sigh, and also for the name of his AAR and having the sack to name one of his ships “Myth Sucks”.
To WinterFox: We are a Nation I’m telling you! A Sinkiang attempt at Chinese Domination and In The Spirit of Yi: A Korean AAR that I know he will get back to, for being the first to actually say to me “You should do one” and the great title for his warlord AAR.
And finally, to Myth: Great Ambitions- A Guangxi Attempt at Chinese Domination, for getting all this started, his great writing, and excellent sense of humor in regards to it all.
To all named above, you are now charter members of “The Warlord Club”. You may add this to your sig., ignore it, or in Tribolutes case, print this up and use it for toilet paper.
The first update will be tomorrow night, and I will only be able to post Wednesday through Friday and alternate Saturdays. Hope you can understand and be patient.
