This is my first AAR ever, after reading tons of them. I've chosen Switzerland because I am Swiss myself! In fact, I took the picture here of Chateau de Chillion myself. My goal is to live the country as a country. It does not have a unified goal unless the leaders vote for it. Each leader may bring a different goal to the table, depending on how much they want to stand out; and how much they want to be re-elected.
All settings are unchanged from the defaults. I installed the game then started the AAR. This AAR will always be using the newest released stable patch for HttT. That means that gameplay may switch sometime in between, but this is realistic as countries do not stay stagnant during 400 years; especially not these 400 years.
Just a note that Switzerland wasn't neutral until Napoleon conquered it and then the Congress of Vienna declared it Neutral in 1815. It is doubtful that Switzerland will be declared neutral again in 1815, because I plan to not follow Switzerland's historic path. Also, since Switzerland in the game doesn't have the dozens of different cantons that would have played an important part in 1399, the first order of business of the Tagsatzung will be to unite them into two provinces, hence the name of the AAR
This will be written as a history/narrative.
Thank-you for reading! Enjoy!
