Tá ár lá linn
"Our day has come"
Hello all! After a long, long time silently perusing these forums, I've decided to undertake the great task of writing my own AAR. As I'm sure anyone that sees this will know, this is my first posting on these forums, but I've spent a long while reading some of the fantastic AARs already present here, and it has got me very fired up to try and do my own. So, before I layout what I'm doing I thought I'd give a shout out to some of the AARs that I've read that really made me decide to join up.
First, and for most of you probably unsurprisingly, is the wonderful AAR "Rome AARisen" by General_BT. His ability to tell a story just leaves me dumbfounded and begging for more. If, for some reason, you have yet to experience his AAR, it can be found here.
Second, I'd like to point out the brilliant AAR done by Mr. Capitalist, "Homelands". Which can be found here.
Finally, my thanks and praise would not be complete without mentioning the first AAR I ever read, and the one that originally got me to read more, "The High Kings of Alba" by Lord Valentine. So, if you detest what I end up writing, you can blame him for bringing me here . His AAR can be found here.
Now, onto what, I hope, you've all been waiting for, which is the introduction of my upcoming AAR - "Tá ár lá linn" which is a Munster AAR in which I'll be forming the Kingdom of Ireland, and uniting the Gaelic people under one glorious blue banner. This will constitute my first attempt at writing an AAR and my first attempt at roleplaying one effectively. I'll be playing the game with low AI aggressiveness and so forth because CK tends to get crazy enough without giving the computer more ammunition. I'll also be using the Deus Vult Improvement Pack designed by jordarkelf, and it can be found here.
With all that being said, I hope I'm able to compare to some of the amazingly good works already up here, and I'd appreciate any commentary/criticism any readers might have. It'd be good to hear from some of you because it'd help me know I'm not just talking to myself, which makes the chance that I'm crazy go down significantly. Anyway, I should have my first update written and up very shortly, so I hope you all enjoy it!
