The Ballad of Lithuania
AARs that I personally recommend everyone read:
Interesting. As much as I love Capets (and Philippe, since he's the first of his name via his mother's newfangled foreign traditions), and dislike German spellings of good French names, I most wonder about how the Saxons will recover from that disaster.

Duke of Bonbon, and also Chevalier Grand Croix of the Ordre Militaire du Saint Christophe.
Most likely the update I'm working on at the moment will be ready tonight, if I choose to actually use it. At the moment it introduces a new POW, this timelines Edgar the Atheling, whom I do not have any real storyline for beyond this update (although I might consider expanding upon him in a sideline story some time from now), and I aim to keep a low level of POWs and keep away from one-chapter characters, if they do not serve a very important purpose. We'll just have to see what I do.
Is this AAR still alive? I've been waiting for so long that I'm begining to lose hope. Tell me it ain't true!
I would rather call it an indefinite hiatus. I've been suffering from a stomach disease the last six months or so, which has led to my studies suffering quite severely, so at the moment I'm trying to catch up there and recover my personal life. Might be that I'll have the time to start up again this summer, might be not until this fall, but I will try to get back to it when things slow down.
That sucks, I empathise and hope things get better for you soon. I'll be waiting until this can continue someday!

Very well done, i had a great time reading it all, and i cant wait for the rest
I've started to feel a bit better over the last few weeks and would not deem it unlikely that I will return to writing in the coming month. That said I do not know what I intend to write. I've been reading through my old entries in this saga and even though I like Raoul and were looking forward to writing about Philippe's spiralling down and ever down I feel more and more detached from this story whilst I would also like to do an AAR based on the new patches. At the moment I'm considering whether to continue this story at least until the death of Raoul and then maybe see if I want to finish it after all (I was planning to carry on to EU3 and maybe even Victoria 2), or to start fresh on a new story on my updated version of CKII with a new set of characters. Whatever I choose to do I would like to thank everyone for their appreciative words and express my deepest hope that you will continue to follow my writing, no matter what path I go down.
The core of this message is thus: Expect some story from me during the coming month - but it might not be the continuation of this one.
Well, I can reveal that, after accidentally deleting the wrong version of CKII on my computer today when installing the latest patch, The Rules of Sword and Crown is officially not continuing post Raouls death, however I have begun a new project that seems promising and is writing on the prologue as of right now, however this new story takes place in a region which history I really need to refresh, so it will be a little while before I actually post any of it - if I chose to do that one. The first dozen of years however seems promising and rich in blood, betrayal and ambitious men and women, and what more could one ask for to write a good story? I will however reread Rules one last time before I decide to pronounce it dead or to push through with the last two decades (yes old Raoul lived to be very old indeed).
Well, the decision has been made and Rules is as of today officially declared dead. I will start a new AAR in a few weeks time.
Just thought of something: For all those, if any, who are subscribed to this AAR, I've started a new one called 'The Curse of Brothers' (link in my signature), playing with Alfonso VI of León. The style is very similar to Rules and for those who enjoyed what I did here, however briefly it ended up to be, might want to check it out.
