    We're in good shape! A Portugal AAR

    We're in good shape!



    Introduction


    Welcome to my AAR. A tale of love, betrayal, rivalry and Rebecca Black. As it is a Portugal AAR, the title might seem a bit strange. But donít worry, itís not stupid title. That is because this AAR is not a normal AAR, it is written in comic-style! And it is starring Portugal. Portugal, say hi to all the nice people.




    Good. I will use some house rules for this game.

    - No conquering in Europe or Great Britain and Ireland. Personal Unions are allowed, vassals only in Iberia. Capturing individual islands is allowed.



    - The army cannot be larger than the navy.
    - No gamey tactics or cheating.
    - No save-reloading.



    - Must have more colonies than home provinces by 1500.

    The goals for this AAR:
    - Colonize on every continent (North America, South America, Mesoamerica, Africa, India, Indonesia and Asia)
    - Make Lisbon the richest centre of trade in the world.
    - Have a centre of trade on every continent.
    - Be the first to discover America.
    - Discover India before 1530.

    Those are the house rules and goals. The AAR will not be narrative or history book-style but the countries will interact with eachother according to the events in the game.

    The guy saying 'Why do they always have to fight?' is Gascogne.

    Explanation:
    • I did 1 slider move towards quality.
    • I joined England in a war against Leinster.
    • France declared war on England.
    • I secured a royal marriage with Castille.
    Not in the comic:
    • I also secured a royal marriage with Aragon.
    • Castille declared war on Granada and North Africa.

    I like it How do you create your comics? I've been planning to do a comic-style AAR for ages - probably Poland - but don't feel I can do it justice wihtout a graphics tablet. This one looks great, and I love the France

    edit: And who is that saying 'Why do they always have to fight?' ?
    I can make a lord, but only God can make a gentleman - King James VI of Scotland, England and Ireland

    I create them in Adobe Fireworks. It's a program pretty similar to GIMP but more based on creating instead of editing.

    And it's Gascogne (+ Labourd) saying 'Why do they always have to fight?'.

    It's Gotland, it would be a good base for the Baltic Sea although I would prefer ÷sel.

    Don't worry, I've already killed of around 15000 Portuguese and gained zero territories














    No offense to Englishmen, I love you guys And yes that is Cee Lo Green, that face just looks like a trollface to me. I also lost my entire expeditionary force in Scotland because of England.

    Explaination:
    • The English got their asses kicked in Gascogne.
    • Scotland joined the war, England invaded.
    • I made up Operation Back Attack taking 7000 on a pillaging journey from the Mediterranian to the Channel.
    • I aborted the operation when I spotted a 15 stack in Languedoc.
    • I launched Operation Kilt to conquer the Western Isles as a northern base, but England denied me.
    • I white-peaced France.
