    EU3


    EU3 - HTTT Always War
    Always WAAR - The British Always War AAR

    Can the great British empire form in a state of constant war? This dynamic mod, changes the course of the game as there is constant war between every neighbor you will come across.

    HOI3


    HOI3 - SF Common Weapons
    Operation Vistula - The Polish Alternative AAR

    Poland fell to Germany in just 5 weeks of fighting, can TheCheeseMaster beat this, overcome them and conquer Berlin before 1943? Or will he fall to Germany and fail democracy to the traitorous fascists.


    HOI3 - SF Common Weapons
    Scramble For Africa - The Ethiopian AAR

    Ethiopia is possibly the hardest nation in the entire world to play as, no opportunities exist. The war with Italy will prove near impossible to deal with, but I will have to.


    HOI3 - FTM Common Weapons
    Ireland In World War Two

    Its 1940, Europe has changed dramatically. Ireland successfully managed a coup in 1936 and because of this, Germany never caused their annexation and never put enough pressure on Czechoslovakia. But after a war with Poland, Switzerland and Czechoslovakia, the allies had had enough and declared war against a strong and powerful enemy. Ireland is in the middle of it.

    Rise Of Sardinia
    A Dark Continent AAR - Europa Universalis 3 Divine Wind

    God punished the Christian people, for it lived in sin and forgot His word. Spreading from the lands of France, the deadly disease He sent to Europe spared no one, killing men, women and children, leaving the continent empty. Only a few chosen ones managed to survive, seeking refuge in the major islands, who had not encountered the wrath of the Lord.

    One of these islands was Sardinia. Mariano IV of Arborea, King of one of the four states in which the island was divided, wisely employed the refugees as mercenary soldiers, and in less than a decade he conquered the whole of the island, taking a new royal name: King Mariano I of Sardinia, or, in the native tongue, Giuighe Mariane I de Sardigna. He was succeeded by Queen Eleonora I. Her most known accomplishment was the conquest of Corsica, who was in a perpetual state of civil war between the Genovese refugees, whose government in exile ruled the island, and the Corsican locals, who, thinking of the Genovese as cursed by God, rebelled and longed for a local King. A good part of them accepted the rule of Eleonora, seen as the descendant of a dynasty whose survival was wanted by the Lord Himself, while more than an half of the Genovese were either lynched by the locals or sentenced to death by the Queen in person. Her reign was inherited by Mariano II of Sardinia.

    TUFTO'S INKWELL


    Purveyor of Narrative AARs since 2011.


    Thrice Character WritAAR and Once WritAAR of the Week.


    Currently Active:


    Byzantium was dying, the Mongol age was over, the Mamluks were declining, and the Crusade of Varna had just failed catastophically. A new time was coming; a Turkish time. And at the centre of its rise was Ivy the Egyptian, whose family would dominate the Sultans of Constantinople for over three hundred years...

    On indefinite hold (to be resumed after the completion of Ivy):



    A Narrative AAR of the Basiliakos Dynasty of Thessaly and Thessalonika.


    The sins of Consantinople and the piety of Thessalonika, at the beginning of the 12th century, were too far apart. With the Empire torn between rival claimants, a little family from Thessalia, steeped in battle and faith, began to claw its way to the Throne of Emperors, determined not to stop until every last lord bowed to their blades...

    On Indefinite Hold (to be resumed at some point in 2014, probably in July):

    The Red Mexican


    A Spanish AAR for Victoria II


    A century of empire. That's how we remember it. When the greedy imperialists took away the hopes and fortunes of a thousand nations. But it was also a century of revolutions and fury, resentment and crushing poverty. The revolution will never die. The barricades will never come down...

    On Indefinite Hold (to be resumed sometime in 2014, probably at Easter or during the summer):

    The Devil's Darkness


    A Georgian AAR for Crusader Kings


    Georgia. A little kingdom on the edge of the Black Sea. A land of tyrants, of plots and conspiracies, of noble men and darker ones. But when the Portugese branch of the Bagratuni dynasty takes hold of the realm, three centuries of blood and sorrow would follow, as Georgia reared its head to become the dominant power in the East...

    Lost save:

    One More for Perdition


    A Venetian Fantasy AAR for Europa Universalis III


    All is not well in the world. The mortal states bicker and war, the fragile truce between the skeletal Reapers and the power-hungry Vampires is fraying, and the Jack O' Lanterns are looking up at the sky in fear. When one of the oldest and most prestigious Reapers, Kael, takes a young Copt, Mona, as his protege, they cut a path through the world using a single nation as their vessel: the Most Serene Republic of Venice...

    Europa Universalis III AARs



    Yin, Yang and the ugly: a Divine Wind Ming AAR.

    A gameplay-focussed AAR in which I tackle the then-new Ming Faction system. The Divine Wind expansion changed Ming considerably, primarily by introducing Factions. Ming is either ruled by the Eunuch faction, the Bureaucrats or the Temple faction. Each Faction poses certain restrictions and penalties on you or providing bonuses and opportunities.

    Will Ming be shackled by the machinations of eunuchs and bureaucrats or will the Central Republic forge itself a place under the sun, despite all the hurdles within and without?

    Status: finished




    Double Domination: Germany versus Japan.

    In this experimental AAR I play two countries, Bavaria and Taira (soon Germany and Japan) in alternating turns of 10 years. In 1770, the Final Battle between both nations will commence and determines who will win Double Domination!

    Narrated by two sport commentators, Jim and Bob.

    Status: finished.

    Europa Universalis: Rome AARs



    Those Crazy Gauls.

    In this AAR, I will play the republic of Gaul, formed from uniting the Gallic tribes under the Parisii banner. But a time-travelling mad scientists takes over the young republic and will decide its fate: Will he succeed in taking over the world or were they right to call him mad?

    I have played EU:Rome VV now for about 20-30 hours and this will be my first long-term campaign. Don't worry if you are not familiar with the game, I will explain the mechanics as part of the AAR.

    Currently aborted.

    Gela's Inkwell


    I've been prolific throughout my career, but I've omitted links to almost all my AARs due them all sharing in a terrible case of author abandonment.



    Republic of the Blue Lion: An Athens DW AAR


    This is my personal favorite of everything I've ever written. It isn't complete, and I'm still working on it. It started off like a light narrative, with short text and lots of screenshots. In relatively little time, however, it evolved into a far more in-depth story where every character has their own ambitions and they work to the benefit (or detriment) of Athens in their own convoluted ways.

    Gela's EU3 AAR for Beginners - A Guide


    The majority of people, it seems, believe this to be one of my best AARs. It's also a work in progress, but not abandoned. It's an attempt to help beginners understand the very complex game of EU3 a bit better, and is also a gameplay-style chronicle of the game I'm playing to illustrate it. Written with my best efforts in comedy.



    My best attempt at a huge narrative undertaking. Much more in-depth than Blue Lion, I'm focusing most of my energies into this one at the moment. It is designed to have a lot less about the game and a lot more about the characters. It follows a cast of varying characters who eventually convene on the Eastern Academy of Scholarship, run by a man named Minas. The main character is Sivus Bischa, who is frequently annoyed at being treated as a second-class citizen simply because he is from Belarus.

    It will also features a second cast of characters who live in the actual time period of the game. Their story is another one of twists, turns, and ambitions.

    Great Britain refuses to cave to German demands at Munich, and the Second World War starts one year early.


    Kneel Before Zog!: 1936 Albania

    I'm still pretty new to the forums, so my AAR list is much smaller than those above me.

    La storia di Casa Orsini (The History of House Orsini)

    It is a CK AAR following the History of the Orsini Dynasty. Though the only Orsini ruler in the game that is not a bishophoric (sorry 1337 Roma) is sadly fake, but the Dynasty is completely real. It is currently being updated like lighting, so check it out.

    I also have an abandoned CK Capua AAR, that sadly ended due to a crash after only two updates.
    Ideas are more powerful than guns. We would not let our enemies have guns, why should we let them have ideas?
    Joseph Stalin

    If any foreign minister begins to defend to the death a "peace conference," you can be sure his government has already placed its orders for new battleships and airplanes.
    Joseph Stalin

    It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.

    Europa Universalis 3



    Inspired by the combination of the history book and narrative styles in recent AARs like The Grey Eminence, The Red Lioness of Holland or the old Triumph of Eagles, In the Sadow of the Vesuvius will also try to emulate this hisotry book\narrative style. Using the Death and Taxes mod, this AAR will try to stay within a minimal historical plausibility at all times. So, grab a phone, call your favourite pizza place, order a Napoletana (yeah I know that Let's Eat Pizza Napoletana is the name of another Naples EU3 AAR) and follow the kings of Naples as they try to transform their kingdom in an European super power.

    Crusader Kings



    My first attempt at an AAR. Also a history book\narrative combination centered on the House of Lacon, a Sardinian dynasty. As my old computer had a break down, I lost most of the screenshots and the most recent saves. I was planning to replay the game from an earlier save and continue the AAR, but the frustration of having to play the game all over again made me stop the AAR.

    Are you bored? You will be after you've read some of the stuff in here.


    Crusader Kings 2 AARs


    The Il-Khanate 1218 - 1411

    A return to my gameplay style after Shaybanid, this time for CK2. Starting as a pagan, the first one in CK2.

    Now finished.

    The Muromians 867 -

    Another gameplay AAR; this time, following a Volga Finnic tribe in The Old Gods.

    On hold due to a dead computer. May resume in August or be cancelled.

    Europa Universalis 3 AARs


    Kaba Ma Kyei 1399 - 1575

    My first AAR, about Pegu in EU3, started 1399. You could read it, but most of the pictures have gone. It's in a gameplay style.

    The Story of Styria 1399 - 1821

    Another gameplay AAR, chronicling the histories of the rarely-existent nation of Styria. Complete!

    Helped me win WritAAR of the Week for June 10th, 2012 and was reviewed in the fourth New AARlander.

    Children of Genghis Khan 1525 - 1821

    This one is about Shaybanid, started 1525 (and rather better than the previous one). It's also a gameplay AAR.

    I managed to survive until 1821, so it became:

    Victoria 2 AARs


    Children of Genghis Khan part 2 1836 - 1929

    A direct continuation of the previous AAR using the converter utility. Begins in 1836 in a gameplay style, then near the end it changes completely into a newspaper style. If you want to know why, you have to read it.

    On hold due to the same dead computer as above.

    Styria Redux 1836 - 1936

    The Story of Styria continued in Victoria 2. Completed in just ten updates. The first EU3 to V2 AAR to end in 1936.

    Can Poland Into Space? A Poland Polandball AAR This is by far my most successful AAR yet and the crown of my work so far ().
    This is about the story of Poland, or inoffically the Adventures of King Polandball is my AAR about Poland in Polandball form, trying to be a little comedy AAR (on hiatus, possible discontinuation due to possible savegame loss).

    Darkest Hour: A Hearts of Iron Game

    Indivisible and Inseparable
    Austria-Hungary in The Great War

    Austria was founded on the principles of loyalty and power. Austria-Hungary was founded in a desperate time.

    Defeat in 1866 at the hands of what were to become their greatest allies, the Germans, forced the emergency creation of Austria-Hungary. For over forty years, she has sat in wait for her time to show the world what she is made of.

    Now, it is 1914. Europe, and the world, are in crisis. Francis Ferdinand, heir to the Throne, has been assassinated by a lowly Serbian nationalist. Retribution must be given. It is Austria's time to show the world what she is truly made of.

    A history-book AAR following the adventures of Austria's greatest commanders in her struggle for survival, equilibrium, and absolute victory in a world engulfed in war.

    The Storied History of the Central American Navy

    The Federal Republic of Central America was born out of the fires of revolution. The Spanish Empire's declining status invoked a rebellion across Latin America. For over a decade, the colonists fought for independence. By 1829, it had been achieved.

    Now, the Central American Republic is in poor state. With an underdeveloped military, a collapsing economy, and a relatively "patriotic" people, President Francisco Morazán must unite and gather his people, reverse the bad fortune of his young nation, and bring her to glory, to worldwide renown. To do so, he will need men. He will need ships. He will need a navy.

    A narrative/text-book on the creation and expansion of a navy to give a small Central American country a voice in the matters of the world.

    Cybvep's AARs


    I. Black Crusaders - HPP mod Germany 1936 AAR
    Check it here!

    This is the first AAR I have ever written. Much to my surprise, it became rather popular. I used the great Historical Plausibility Mod for SF, which makes the game both more realistic and more challenging. It is not, however, very deterministic, which my AAR demonstrates quite clearly, as the war was started over Czechoslovakia in 1941 and the Soviet Union began their path to European domination by attacking Poland and Germany in 1942.

    It is a gameplay AAR, but it involves quite a bit of German propaganda, as I gladly boasted about my victories and diminished the importance of my failures. The game was quite challenging for a while, because I gave hefty bonuses for the AI (but no penalties for the player - I hate that!) - there was a time when the Soviet Union had 8000 (!) manpower and outnumbered me greatly. The AAR involves everything from grand encirclements and great naval battles to massive struggles with the logistical situation in the East, which made the AAR feel more epic and seem more plausible. While it was never finished, you can rest assured that it contains plenty of action!


    II. Influence Wars - Japan 1936 HPP Interactive AAR
    Check it here!

    Another HOI3 AAR utilising HPP mod, but this time it's an interactive one, involving heated discussions and power struggles between the Imperial Japanese Army and the Imperial Japanese Navy. I got the idea for this AAR while contemplating on the RL internal conflicts between the various branches of the military during WWII. Few games try to represent the domestic issues like these ones, so I think that the idea is still quite fresh.

    The funny thing is that I play a dual role of the Emperor and the Game Master of sorts, which means that I have to execute the plans created by the Army and the Navy AND find new ways of making the lives of the players miserable (e.g. they don't have access to the save games and I gave the AI various situation-specific bonuses which they do not know of), because we all know that unchallenging games suxx .

    Interactive AARs are always hard to classify, but I think that it's best to describe the Influence Wars as a mix of Gameplay and Narrative AAR types. The AAR appeared in the Weekly AAR Showcase on 18th of December and won the AARland Choice AwAARd 2011 in the Favorite Narrative AAR, HoI(1-3) category.

    Unfortunately, the AAR had to be stopped after I lost my whole HOI3 folder...

    III. Destiny of the Clan Otomo - Sengukuo AAR
    Check it here!


    This is my only non-HOI3 AAR for the moment. It is purely a gameplay one and it shows my short-lived but flashy attempt at achieving dominance in feudal Japan. I recommend this one to anyone who loves to read about the player's failures. It appears that the game's AI and mechanics can offer a good challenge if you are playing as a small or medium-sized clan.

    There is no fun if there is no chance to lose, right?

    Tanzhang's (譚張) Inkwell (硯臺)

    Hello everyone, (anyone?)
    Having reached my self-imposed threshold of three AARs before starting an inkwell page (what's the point if you only have one or two AARs?), I believe it is now time for me to start an inkwell. In due time, I'll add content to this page: AwAARds, images, comments on my work, etc. but for now some simple links to my three AARs will suffice.

    Thanks for visiting
