    Just FYI, Sheogorath is the Prince of Madness from The Elder Scrolls universe.
    All Hail Britannia - a V2 AAR - awarded the Weekly AAR Showcase on 6/15/14.


    The Q2 ACAs are calling!


    Paradox Interactive: We put the story into history.


    My two other shamefully abandoned AARs...(there is also a third one hiding in the corners of the V2 AARland, not even worth linking)

    A fantastic writing accomplishment. You kept it fun, interesting (despite the crappy circumstances you found yourself in) and made a great story. Thank you very much for this AAR. I had a lot of fun reading.

    The same ancestor angle is one I'm definitely going to explore. As far as Rob's appearance, he'll take on a human form.

    It's probably safe to assume that Daniel or one of his ancestors will have a small role somewhere don't the line, isn't it?

    Anyway, great AAR, very enjoyable read, looking forward to the, well, sequel.
    Safe to assume indeed.

    I actually intend to switch off; I have a specific plan in mind that I'll share when I start the AAR.

    Ah ha. I've only ever played one Elder Scrolls (Morrowind) and that was a long time ago. Never finished it, but that was because I found Baldur's Gate and Neverwinter Nights. I hear good things about Skyrim -- maybe I'll pick it up at some point?

    Nice of you to mention me *sheds a tear*
    that said, a nice AAR! Full of insanity, and I see Chaos did get his own back in the end!
    Contrary to common beliefs, I'd rather have Chaos mucking about than Sheogorath. So, I assume we will have our three immortal friends return somewhere?

    I think Chaos will find the Victorian Era much more difficult to win his bet in than in EU3. There weren't as many wars in this period and the fact that there was already a well entrenched world order with Britain an the other europeans firmly at the top. But he'll manage... he always does... Also when Rob inevitably destroys the world, jump. It might just save your life...

    The bet will have to change conditions though. After all, how are they gonna determine if Rob has gone insane...er?

    You have an excellent point; the conditions will be different, but much more scientific.

    Come think of it, the whole point of having Daniel as the host was that he had so little personality that he would have virtually no impact so that all chaos was certain to be... Chaos' doing. This new bet will be completely different.

    Hey Avindian, will you be keeping to the infamy limit in V2? If yes that could be a bet breaker for Chaos... He might just up and rebel against the Author...(i.e you)

    I'll be honest -- I haven't given house rules much thought yet. It's certainly possible that I'll have to ignore the infamy limit, but I'm not promising anything.

    As a new guy on the forums, this is one of the first AARs I have read, along with a couple others and the required reading or Prawnstar's Iroquois WC. I am here to say, that this AAR was great, both in concept and execution. I greatly look forward to part 2.

    Thanks very much and welcome to the forums! PrawnStar is a superb writer (he has a recent AAR as well) and that particular AAAR is one of his best.
