Right, so that last AAR ended badly. That's the worst Byzantine game I've ever had, and my first was pretty bad. Let's try again shall we?
I started this game when I had a week worth of posts from the last one saved up. Hopefully that'll give me room to get a successful game going before I start publishing again.
Again, during the CK2 era, I will be roleplaying the rulers. The overarching goal is to restore the Empire (including pushing it to its largest historical borders), but specific progress will be bound by the ruler's personality. Mending the great schism will also depend on the personalities of any emperors with opportunity to do so. There will be favoritism towards greek rulers. That one's mostly some long-term meta-gaming, though it seems reasonable enough to me that an emperor would deal better with subordinates who shared a primary language.
Recommendations on my play style or my writing style are welcome.
