• Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.


    Real Strategy Requires Cunning

[anchor=1]HAARva NAARgila:
The Picture Scroll of the Khazars
[/anchor]




(Format and layouts in homage to Gratianus's great picture scroll of the Kingdom of Jerusalem

Disclaimer ripped off of anonymous4401's thoughtless appropriation of phargle's
Knud Knýtling, Prince of Denmark (and other assorted tales))​




*​




AARthor's Foreward:
Had a fun game with Khazaria and just wanted to share. Format's the same as my Welsh silent AAR, although it will largely be divided by reigns. For (much :)) better treatment of similar material, see Gen. Dayan's A Light unto the Nations: A Khaganate of Khazaria AAR, and Phargle's Solomon of Itil.

Disclaimer:
For some reason, once I hit 1157, every time I load my savegame, it crashes within a month or two. There's a thread here if you have any ideas what it might be other than a dynasties.txt problem. If I can't get it fixed, we'll just say that a meteor struck the earth and wiped out all human life and just go on with our own. :D [Fixed.]

Setup:
Scenario: 1066 Post-Hastings
Difficulty: Very Hard
Aggression: Normal
Mods: BOPACK, SMACK, Devine Shadow's Pagan/Muslim mod + Scenario Files, Gen. Dayan's Khazarian Minimod, Drachenfire's Welsh mod, some graphics stuff
Other stuff: 1.05 + IP2
Start country: Khazaria

Yes... Is this from photo-editing software? Like, perhaps, filling in the blank map and then resizing it to fit inside the hodge-podge of interfaces, etc.?...

If there's a way to zoom out that much you need to tell us!1!11

The nice thing about being Khazaria is you can annex everything, though that is gamey.

@ThrashtheStampede: I'll see what I can do.
@Cracked: Oy, you don't know from chutzpah. It's me versus every goy on earth.
@ReGerbilizedBorsht: I clicked on the button that says zoom out. Ever since I got that new graphics card from some Chinese guy in red paint and horns, everything works great.
@Evil: Nah, he's got Irit. Considering he's chaste and she still managed to get eight kids out of him, must've been some vixen. Or as fertile as the Chernozem. Or both.

It's like SimCity. Once you set up your own little kingdom, for no apparent reason, people flock to you.
@Vasili & Nick: See, like that. :D
@Jimbo: If you can start with a one-province minor between Cumania and the Seljuks, who's a religious enemy to everyone and who's priests keep demanding that you set yourself up as a Crusade target by rebuilding some temple that hasn't even been around for a thousand years, then you can gimme this gamey crud. :D:p

Matter of fact, if anything, the religious aspect is horrible. Cf., e.g., Inbreeding and the inability to ever DOW someone you can't take all the way down, while they play "hide-the-demesne" in their vassals' courts. My Welsh game, eg, I took over Germany through a strike at two castles in the Alps before the Saxons had even made it onto their boats.

That said, of course it'll prolly end up as a WC, since I'm not sure I can play EU3 as a Jewish state anyway.
@Duke: Well, if you like HAARva NAARgila, you'll love:

EDIT: Another oldie but goodie:
  • igorvragovic's aptly titled Serbia Ck Aar 1187

    In the words of Specialist290:
    :eek: That horde that... Big horde... That horde... France that horde... Big horde that... Ate Germany horde ate... Big horde... :eek:

Huge conquests. You're almost at the Khazar Maximum Extent point.

If you have the time of course you could mod in Judaism as a possible state religion.

Just going to check out the Aberffraw one now. I remember the Jerusalem AAR well. It was very good. I recognised the title of this AAR because of that, without it I most likely wouldn't have found this one.

You have too much time on your hand... ;)

Good job!

Watch out for the Gog and the Magog... :D

You're right. Go for broke- it will at least keep the priests occupied and encourage them to warm up their crusading zeal on someone else, for now anyway.

Great graphics - really perfect and refined. But this must be tough game. You can create own religion in EU3 quite easily, would be great to continue such project.

Watch out for ... everyone :)

Very nice graphics, especially, I love an action map.
An amazing evolution! :eek:
