Kingdom, Power, Glory
Greetings everyone. I've tried twice before to write a nice Magna Mundi AAR, but both were, for different reasons, abandoned. Here is try number three -- but this time, I've already played out the whole game, so there's nothing left to abandon .
Played on MMP 1.402, with a few very minor tweaks. If you haven't given it a try yet, I encourage you to do so -- it isn't for everybody, but personally I haven't played vanilla in over a year because of it. I really wanted with this AAR to demonstrate as wide a variety of the mod's features as possible. You can't cover everything in a single game, but I think I did a pretty good job. Even the Pirates of the Barbary Coast will make a cameo, and I don't think I ever ventured a single ship into those accursed waters.
I freely used save game editing and other nefarious deeds when I thought it would help the story. Once or twice I even reloaded an old save when something happened I didn't like -- but you'll see that I left all my best moments of stupidity in!
I hope you enjoy the AAR.
