The Memoirs of Santiago Nadal: A Mexico AAR
Hello, and welcome to my newest AAR. After months of virtually no activity in AARland, I have decided to return to scene with this new project, which had been in my mind for quite some time. However, other projects came across, both in AARland and in real life, so I had to put it on hold. Last year, I started my first narrative AAR (Italy: Tales of Friendship, Treason, Love and Death), after a couple of gameplay AARs, trying to do something different. The first chapters were almost experimental. To my surprise, a pleasant one I must say, my AAR was well recieved by the community and throughout the whole thing, I had a solid base of faithful readers, who even made an appearance in some of the chapters. So now, four months after the end of my previous narrative AAR, I have finally decide to start a new one. As the title states, it will be a Mexican AAR, in an autobiographical style, where a man, Santiago Nadal, will show us the Mexico from the XIX Century from his own point of view. The game is loosely based in a Vicky game I played long time ago, but I will be taking a lot of liberties in the storytelling, giving preference to narrative over the actual game. I must thank ComradeOm for his wonderful Mexican AAR (which was just updated), for giving some ideas for mine. On the other hand, thanks to canonized and robou, both of you guys have taught me a lot about narrative AARs. The AAR will begin during the Mexican War of Independence, and will follow a historical path through most of it. However, divergences will start appearing in the way, until we are facing a whole new timeline. I won't tell more, you'll have to read to discover it yourselves. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to make it more enjoyable, interesting, etc. I'm always open to suggestions. But above all, I hope that you enjoy this AAR as much as I have enjoyed writing this first updates that will come soon.
