    Glory for Ulm: A Flagland AAR

    Table of contents

    Notice: This AAR has ended, but you can still enjoy the parts that exist.

    Use this site if any of the comics aren't working in this thread.

    "The most offensive thing since Episode III." (4 out of 5 stars)

    - Pelle fra Ungdomshuset

    Introduction

    First, a bit of introduction. I have been reading AARs for a decent while - often lurking, though - and always wanted to write an AAR myself. But given the amount of forms of writing, the roleplaying, from the plain simple dump of screenshots to the sophisticate storybuilding and even modifying the game to fit the storytelling. Some serious, some comical.

    So where does that allow me to be creative? Well, then it came to me in a dream! I doubt anyone has done an AAR as a comic! And given my success with the Flagland comics, I think such an AAR could easily be a success.

    Now, you may start to wonder; 'why Ulm?' And to the critics, I say, 'why not?!' Ulm have become far more powerful in DW due to it become an administrative republic (Frankfurt share this nature, btw), which gives a +10% to trade eff, which means quick bucks.

    The goal of this AAR is to build an Ulmite/Ulmish/Ulmian empire of vassals through the usage of spies.

    But without further ado, here is Part 1 of the AAR.



    Enjoy.

    I love your work
    "'Religious faith. Belief in daemons, belief in spirits, belief in an afterlife and all the other trappings of a preternatural existence, simply existed to make us all more comfortable and content in the face of a measureless cosmos. They were sops, bolsters for the soul, crutches for the intellect, prayers and lucky charms to help us through the darkness. But we have witnessed the cosmos now, my friends. We have passed amongst it. We have learned and understood the fabric of reality. We have seen the stars from behind, and found they have no clockwork mechanisms, no golden chariots carrying them abroad. We have realized there is no need for god, or any gods, and by extension no use any longer for daemons or devils or spirits."

    Excellent! Svippers is on the move!
    But I see something weird. According to your registered icons and most of the game screenshots, you are playing DW. Still you have to Treasurers as your advisors - even though DW only allows one of each advisor type. What's going on?

    That was the hiring screen. Which is why Ulm says 'I like that guy', because while they had no real difference, I choose one of the other. And while it doesn't appear in this comic (for comic reasons!), I hired a master of mint a year later.

    God, I'm really tired. I didn't even think of that and completely missed that joke there.

    Also, I've been thinking of making a comedy AAR for a long time, but I'm afraid I couldn't keep making jokes and they would get boring after a while.

    Been years since I've frequented this place and I sure as hell ain't gonna go searching for it.

    I remember couple for HoI2. Likely there have been others. Pretty much all concievable AAR styles have been tried out, I for example did one based on modified Monty Python sketches, several on relyricing songs and also used videos. And those were many years ago and only Monty Python one was unique at the time.

    Hm, I guess. Well, it is not necessary a requirement for me to be unique, but rather unusual. And while the style may not be the first one tried, it's not like when I made the comic, I didn't expect there to be similar comics either.

    I will try to ensure that I keep it updated as often as possible.

    Apparent to the guy above you; yes. But that doesn't mean I shouldn't try, should it? Because I ain't going to stop either.
