Now this AAR will be a 1936 GC scenario played as Estonia. I´ve patched the game to 1.3. and changed some parametres of the game. Why? For the fun of it, no one would like to read an aar, which consists of building infra and some occasional infantry and ends with the event of SU annexing you. Besides I`m the total opposite of a grofaz - suck at strategy and even more at tactics.
So ladies and gents, I give you "What you eat is what you AAR". We all do it on a daily basis. Some of us just do it, some of us get great pleasure and enjoyment out of it and some of us unfortunately hate doing it. Of course, I´m talking about sex, oh sorry, that`s for another aar... I`m talking about eating. The goal of this aar will be to introduce a national estonian dish per update (until I run out of dishes to present) and a national dish of every country annexed/gie-d.
Let`s kick it off then: here are the modifications I have made.
The no neutrality cheat of course...
As you noticed I`ve changed the national unity from 70 to 90. After the war of liberty in 1918-1920 all estonians were unanimous in the goal of coming up with new national dishes and keeping the hairy hand of communism reaching Europe... that`s what NU represents to me...
... changes on politics and ministers...
... the program of industrialisation included going straight from researching fire to gas cooking ovens and from wooden sticks to infantry support weapons...
... no longer will the estonians have to walk on water, risking nasty fishbites and wet feet, the invention of viking boats has been a major breakthrough for our tiny seagoing nation...
... the powerhouse of estonian economy - Virumaa has been subjected to extracting humongous quantities of shale. By refining shale we get shale oil, gasoline (octane numbers between 1 and 1,5) and last but not least gas for our gas cooking ovens still being researched. Also the inhabitants in Pärnu and Tartu have been asked to rub themselves against any material producing static electricity, which will be transformed by "transformators" into an electric current, which will be used to power lighting bulbs in every home in Pärnu and Tartu in the small hours and late nights so that people of these towns will be able to see what they`re actually doing during dark periods of a 24 hour cycle. (Right.. the last sentence makes no sense whatsoever) This all results in greater IC and resources for our tiny industrial nation.
Since very few people (actually none) had obtained their brandnew gas cookers, there were some who abandoned the quest for new national dishes and joined the army and the airforce and the navy, resulting in the number of commanders quadrupleing (I most certainly misspelled it).
Having set up our tiny "soon to be filled with brandnew gas cooking ovens" country, without further delay, here`s the first dish -
History: In the dark times before the medieval age estonian pagans were running happily around the forests, beating eachother with wooden sticks; occasionally braving the stormy seas and taking a stroll to Sweden where they would burn down a town or two, beating swedish persons with wooden sticks and then returning home to replenish themselves whatever they could find lying on the ground or hanging in the trees. Mostly there was gravel, from time to time small rocks, very seldom boulders, every now and then twigs or treebark. But those merry-go-lucky days were son to be changed. For from south the combined forces of german knights and six-toed latvians pushed northwards and brought with them, you guessed it... SAUERKRAUT. The estonian diet of nutricious gravel and tasteful bark was to be changed forever... But we were defiant, we added things in sauerkraut which didn`t belong there... tiny rocks, bits of limestone, mud from swamps... and we still keep doing it.
What does it consist of: Well there`s sauerkraut, pork, pork-fat, pearl barley and salt. And this is how it looks like:
Serve while hot with potatoes or medium-sized rocks.. yum-yum.
Do not try this: No tequila shots before, during or at least 2 hours after eating this meal - or you`ll spend the following 83 days in all 7 circles of hell.
