    This is SpAARta!

    All right, here it is.

    This is SpAARta!
    A Greek tragedy
    Featuring a bunch of bodybuilded protofascists in the very plausible role of the defenders of democracy




    Disclaimer #1: This AAR is absolutely not guaranteed to be finished, or to be updated regularly, or to be updated at all.
    Disclaimer #2: It will contain a number of jokes about 300 : the movie.
    Disclaimer #3: I haven't read 300 : the comic.
    Disclaimer #4: If you can't live with disclaimers 1 to 3 I'm not keeping you. If you stay, you hereby agree that the humor included in this AAR is of utmost quality and relevance and lose every right hereafter to complain about it.
    Disclaimer #5: If you're still reading after disclaimers 1 to 4, I really don't know what can repel you. Oh yes. "300" jokes will.
    Disclaimer #6: The readers of my previous AAR already know the first two chapters but will not get a refund anyway. Yes, I'm tough ALSO with my faithful readers. What did you expect? A politically correct AAR for the faint of heart? This is a SPARTA AAR, damn'it! Not a sissy "Fachoman VS the World - a Germany pwns all AAR"! There is true hardcore ahead!

    This ought to be good, judging from your last AAR... but I haven't seen 300 (I just don't feel the need to, since it always annoys me when movies that take place around historical events don't get the history exactly right... and I can tell just by the commercials that it certianly doesn't meet my standards of historical accuracy)... Good luck!

    An AAR with few pictures and few words.
    But the quality will be low nevertheless.
    The quality of the words I mean.
    The pictures will be high quality special effects designed with MS Paint™


    Prologue

    Starring today: Georgios II, King if Greece

    January 1st, 1936
    Somewhere in Greece

    This is the map of Greece.
    A Spartan drew it.




    This is the Greek cabinet.

    A joly old bunch of weirdos if you ask me.

    This most definately sounds promising. I wonder what's on the agenda. Creating Magna Graeca? Slaughtering thousands of persians with your one undermanned division? Or just vain attempts at survival? I guess only time (and hopefully Le Ran) wil tell.

    LOVE IT!

    But you should make the Persians a bit stronger.
    A clash between old enemies is much more fun when the other side is stronger.

    Horray! Le Ran is back with his announced AAR... a piece of sun in this rainy day

    This look promising. I'll follow it, of course.

    Oh, God. He's enough crazy to make 300 Greek soldiers fight against a million Red Army's soldiers...

    I will follow it definitely. Bonne chance!

    Hope it'll work out for those who are too lazy to watch the movie too.
    Snake IV used to be a regular, but not anymore. You might, however, come across him at rare occasions, but that is so seldom you'll manage.
