Greetings everyone. This here will be my second atempt at producing a serious game AAR. My previous atempt was a hardly-started Argentina vanila AAR, and the non serious ones have been a 2 page-report of a very fast Rep. Spain defeat, a glorious but eventualy abandoned Ethiopian Empire Report (Ortodox Meccah included), and finaly the First Life OnwAARds to Socialism, at the offtopic forum.
With this explained, I reckon you won't be surprised by me telling you this here AAR will be updated rarely and with great spaces in-between, so don't go expecting much.
Also, it will consist of more pictures then words, as I can't write narratives worth a eurocent.
Finaly, it's my first time playing Keiserreich, so I have no idea of what to expect. I won't be playing ahead of the AAR, so any suggestions on what to do are wellcome. Let's hear them!
That said, let's start:
The place is the island of Great Britain. The great historian Sarmatia tells us this of it:
And the status of the World in January 1936 translates as such:Originally Posted by Sarmatia
Internaly, the Union of Britain has the following government:
Worthy of note is perhabs that our Radical Socialist HoG is indeed a former CEO of an oil company. Some people have some strange stories it seems.
The Republican Army was very weakened, most of it composed of local militia prepaired more to protect the shores that could be used as landing sites by a Royalist invasion force then to actualy fight a war.
This would have to change, if the Royalist menace was to be removed for good - and if the Union was to mantain it's security from foreign reactionary forces.
The Navy, sticking to British tradition was actualy quite strong, but the numbers only hide the worries of the government. These ships are old and getting more and more inadequate for the security needs of an island nation.
As for the Air Force, it was deemed accetable - specialy as there were no enemies of the Union who could do us damage by air anyhow, but the potential of airplaces in the future conflits was to be investigated and exploited.
With modernisation of the Navy, Airforce and Army, and the increase of industrial and human potencial of the Union in mind, these were the reasearch priorities of the Goverment in January 1936.
Before anything else is done though, comrade Snowden orders the walpaper of the Strategy Room to be changed. Anyone care to help? (those 2 plus the Union Jack on the top really destroy the mood).
