    The 2010 CrusadAAR's Chalice Voting Thread

    2010 CrusadAAR's Chalice



    The top years for CK AARland are over, but it's certainly not dead yet. Next year we'll have another 2011 edition of this thread and then it's onwAARds to CKII.

    The completed AAR's are diminishing year after year since 2008 but in 2010 there were 5 completed AARs still. Not enough to give you a Nominations Thread, we'll go right to the voting for the CrusadAAR's Chalice, the SilvAAR Goblet and the PewtAAR Cup.

    The available choices:

    Dunkeld
    Scotland
    Forward in the Name of God - A Scottish Mega-Campaign
    Iain Wilson
    1066-1964 (Completed 12 February 2010)


    Multiple Families
    Genoa
    The Republic of Genoa: A Community AAR
    Grauuu
    1090-1256 (Completed 13 March 2010)

    Van der Aarlander
    AARland
    The Kingdom of AARland
    Iain Wilson and others
    1337-1358 (Completed 4 May 2010)

    D'Albon
    Burgundy/Jerusalem
    Through Rivers of Blood and Mountains of Gold - The Story of The House of D'Albon
    Tommy4ever
    1066-1475 (Completed 28 July 2010)

    Leofricson
    Duchy of Prussia (and others later)
    Homelands: Tales of the Anglo-Prussians
    Mr. Capiatlist
    1066-1356 (Completed 23 December 2010)


    You may post here to tell everyone what AAR you voted for and why you did so. It may entice other people to vote for your favorite, who knows?

    To me it has to be Mr Capiatlist's Homelands ...it was just such a completely realised world in which everything related, a wonderfully structured vision of an alternative reality
    Remember, whatever the question, the answer on 18 September is Yes ...

    I agree with Loki, Homelands is just such a beautifully crafted world, even going as far as developing a full language for an AAR. It just proves his determination to the subject.

    Except for Mr. Capiatlists's Anglo-Prussians, I don't think I've read any of these. I'd better get started.

    On a side note, I find it amusing that one person -- Frogbeastegg -- who would unquestionably win one of these awards hasn't done so simply because she refuses to finish her AAR!

    I predict an easy win for Homelands. It was a very, very good AAR. I'm holding my vote for later, should there be a tie for second or third place. Other people have to get some love too. Tommyever's Dauphine AAR was very good too you know. The Kingdom of AARland was funny while it lasted and a nice initiative which deserves credit for Iain.

    The Kingdom of AARland was awesome... But then again, I need to finally give proof to me liking Mr. Capiatlists work. So Homelands it is.

    I vote for Homelands, by Mr. Capiatlist, but all of them are pretty good reads.

    Congrats to Mr. Capiatlist. Are there any links to previous chalice's? It's a bit annoying finished aars were taken out of the forum.

    Thank you, everyone. And congrats to the Silver Goblet winners as well as the runner ups, the pain of finishing what we start is a shared struggle.

    'Eleanor' finished long ago; it was finished in time for the previous run of awards IIRC. I don't know if anyone nominated it for anything as I don't tend to read these threads very often. More recent activity comes from a separate story ('The Third Sister') which takes place 3 years after the main tale ended; since it contains strong links to 'Eleanor' I thought I may as well keep it in the same thread. That story is 2 posts from completion.

    Sorry to spoil your amusement



    Congratulations to this year's winner.
    It is impossible to have too many books. Instead one has a lack of space and time.
