I have played a lot of the core Paradox games, but CK is still my favourite and reading some of the excellent CK AARs on the forum tempted me to have a go. This AAR is now past its first birthday and has gone past part 25 already.
I was not sure exactly what sort of style it would be at first, but it has turned out to be mostly historybook. This is a history that is written from the side of the Uffason family, but also looking at little at the society that they rule over.
I have not set any overarching victory conditions. 'Success' will be measured against the ambitions of each ruler, and these may contradict each other (e.g. one focuses on the west, the next abandoning this priority to focus the the east).
There is a lot of discussion at the moment about 'cheating'. I have not used cheats to gain any usccess that the Uffasons have had, but will freely admit to intervening to keep the game and the AAR in sync. In particular this has meant altering the odd character who has been born with a completely implausible culture, or with a name that felt wrong (e.g. King Adolf).
Updates are regular, rather than frequent (one/two updates a month), and I am happy to answer any questions you have (e.g. why certain things happened, what is going on outside the realm, etc).
