Fresh Blood on Ancient Soil - A Saga of the Scottish Kings of Aquitaine
1x Winner of Best Character Writer of the Week
A Crusader Kings II nAARative after the fashion of my original Morean AAR, this tale chronicles King Kenneth I of Aquitaine and his descendants as they struggle to protect their Kingdom, as well as Christendom, from enemies foreign and domestic. The son of a legendary Scottish Crusader King and the heir to his namesake's mighty legacy, Kenneth has very large shoes to fill. Will a Scotsman be able to control a kingdom of Occitans and Gascons, or will the realm descend into chaos? Only history can judge how Kenneth and his heirs shall be remembered...
I shall next introduce you to my history book AAR.
The Heirs of King Arthur - A History of Wales
1066 - 1167 abandoned
This AAR is a Crusader Kings history book style AAR which follows the history of the Mathrafal dynasty (which is represented in game by the Cynfyns). Read about the early Mathrafal Kings as they raise the humble Kingdom of Gwynedd to rule over all Welshmen, and as they then begin to spread Welsh dominance over into Ireland. I enjoyed this one, and wish I could have finished it. But notes (and game file) have since become lost.
Third, I will share with you my EU:Rome AAR.

AVC 460 - AVC 471 (294 B.C. - 283 B.C.) on hold
This AAR is a Europa Universalis: Rome narrative style AAR. It is based upon my mod for EU:R, "Regnum Iudaeorum".
Originally planned to be a full length AAR covering the history of a game played in my mod of the same name, the later stages of the project have been abandoned due to loss of game file. This AAR is only a prequel to the mod. It gives the background story behind my mod. It begins in Sarmatia in 294 B.C., with the Lost Ten Tribes having wandered the steppes in search of a home for 40 years. They soon move south into the Krimea where interesting events begin to unfold. Through an act of treachery, their leader is murdered, and his son, a mere boy of 12, is forced into exile with a small band of loyal followers. In their flight, they encounter a young man from the distant isle of Pretannia
, who has mysteriously learned to speak Greek. He leads them to his homeland and thus our tale is born...

The Morea, A Palaeologid AAR
2x Winner of Best Character Writer of the Week (for the character of King Konstantinos II "the Crazy" and for characters in general)
1066 - 1230 old hold
The poster for this AAR is much too big to post here in the inkwell, so you can find a link to the poster here
. Poster courtesy of my good friend, canonized.
This AAR is a Crusader Kings narrative style AAR. It is set in a semi-fantasy situation. Emperor Konstantinos X bestowed the title "King of the Morea" unto Prince Georgios Palaeologus of the Peloponnesus. To this day nobody yet knows what Konstantinos' motives were. The story follows the now King Georgios I of the Morea and his successors as they struggle to turn their little peninsular kingdom into an Empire. Rivalries, treachery, and intrigue are commonplace. In the early 12th century, a new twist is added to the plot, the Morean Church separates from Constantinople, forming its own patriarchate centred at Korinthos. In addition to heating political rivalries with the Empire, this now also causes religious conflicts as well. As if this weren't enough, the Moreans begin to develope their own unique culture, too Latin to be Greeks, but too Greek to be Latins. Politically, culturally, and religiously, the Moreans gradually become more alone in an increasingly hostile environment. Can the successors to Georgios I keep his kingdom and his dynasty alive? Or will they bring to ruin all that he worked so hard to build?
