A History of the Iron Throne II - The Black Dragons
Two years ago I started my first every AAR, A History of the Iron Throne, a history book AAR that tracked the early years of House Targaryen's rule on the Iron Throne. What started as an attempt to add context to my own playthroughs turned into an AAR that I grew to be proud of. After a year of writing it life got in the way and then my hard drive failed and I lost all the screenshots I had taken, and most importantly, the save files. I tried numerous times to write another AAR but I either lost focus or life got in the way. After a lengthy hiatus from both CK2 and AAR writing, I am back to write a sequel of sorts to my very first AAR.
Now to make it clear, A History of the Iron Throne II is not a direct sequel to my original AAR. It's more of a spiritual successor taking place in the same world at a different time. As the subtitle in the name suggests, this AAR will start with the Blackfyre Rebellion, a hundred and ninety five years after Aegon's Conquest. My goal is to write this in a similar fashion to the original, with the goal of tracking how my playthrough's divergent history develops.
