    Kaz the Cossack A Fire and Sword AAR

    'The Deluge'

    That is what it is called in Polish History with their influence in the area shrinking. In my AAR, you will follow my exploits across the land to watch 'The Deluge' take place.

    Hi everyone, and thank you for joining me in my AAR. This is my second attempt at an AAR. My other was in Vicky 2 with China. My AAR style is not your usual. I have a mixture of plot detail and show and tell with many images and some video.

    This is version 1.143

    Before we dive into the adventure. Let me fill you in on some background of our character.

    Kazimierz is a Polish mercenary that fights for more than just money. He also fights to end tyranny. Poland may be Kaz's homeland, but he realizes they have not been kind to their Cossack neighbors. For that, Kaz will become a traitor to fight for the Cossacks and help their cause. Now, if the Tsar, Tartars, and Swedes get in the way, it is my intention just to make them collateral damage. I plan on working for the Cossack cause during my tenure throughout these troubled times.

    Lets just use our imagination on this painting and say we are gathered around the table writing our demands to break free from any Polish influence and the Liberation of Ukraine.

    Kaz gets right to work. He hones his skills with Clermount. I am sure we will run into the French mercenary later in our journeys.
    My first victim.


    My first noble steed.


    Just hosed our first round of bad guys with the Frog and his friends.


    A close up of Kaz as we go on our separate ways.


    On to Poltava to recruit some men to fight for the cause.


    The first mates to join me.


    To boost some experience, we tackle some ruffians we come in contact.

    Some loot and upgrades we collected.

    I continued on to recruit more men.


    These guys will be a good addition. Need to raise some cash so I can recruit some mercenaries from camps.


    Found some Crimean deserters. These guys retreated to a defensive formation and were armed and armored well. They put up a great fight.

    Got some nice Armor out of this fight.

    So I needed money to pay my troops. One thing I do not want is angry men and to be in major debt at the same time. Instead of looting the first village we saw, we traveld to the first Polish village. I will have no sympathy looting them.

    We come upon Ponyri.


    We give the villagers the option just to hand over their goods and money and leave but they choose to resist us. Here are the final battle standings. I lose more men, but it is a real cost of war. I should have enough money now to recruit some mercenaries that can gain some experience. Lots of great things to sell from this raid as well.

    lol, I am going to add some new material in the coming weeks

    Edit:
    Fyi, this AAR is on the back burner until maybe August. Making an AAR for Vicky 2 and moving to Europe will take much of my time away from this project.

    Abandoned aar - mods feel free to do with this as you please.
