• 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

Here goes nothing...

Wilkommen alles to this AAR! I will tell you what's to come...
Look at the disclaimer for more about this AAR...




My goals for this AAR:

Form NGF - done in 1850
Form Germany - done in 1855
Reclaim German Confederation lands - done in 1897
Reclaim HRE lands - ongoing (55%)

Dismantle Russia and France - done in 1900's
[possible] Claim the Baltic Sea - ongoing
There may be more as I go on in this AAR... feel free to suggest any.

This AAR will go in 10 chapters of 10 years each, with slight deviations. Each section will contain what happened in that year.
[1] Part of the German National Anthem. But not really down to the Etsch.

Bold # (whatever color) means this year has already passed.
White # means this year is the current year in production.
Red # is the future. (Get the color scheme?)

Güten tag. Here ist 1838.


















[1] Die Wacht am Rhein was not a military action, but rather an anthem.
[2] NOT a Pole. This is Salzburg, Mozart's birthplace, performing in Frankfurt; however, not perspective-y enough for the coat of arms.
[3] An invasion of Yemen was one of the original plans by our German ambassador after seeing the situation in, like, everywhere. Oh well, guess Arabia is off the bucket list.

Leave any suggestions you might have below. ;)

Well I admit things look good. However one thing to think about is preparation to get NGF mostly getting the right things moving and then moving forward to attack France. Consider getting good tech and good railroad placement and you could have a 1880 in 1850. Which will accelerate many plans forward.

I'm working on it. Got Hanover and Sachsen up to Friendly; however can't get Schleswig/Holstein until, like, 1848 (I looked at the code.) I also have to juggle influence wars with mein adversary, Austria, which slows everything down. Also, I have a krieg coming along... (color scheme is spoiler)
I'm always up for a Polandball AAR. :)
Welcome along.

Hard coding is so not cool. Now I sit in suspense of the coming war and hope that the Brit intervention shenanigans doesn't mess it up.

I will. Expect more schwarz, gelb, und weiß in the comics now that we are at war. (Hint: Those are the flag colors.)

It was July 11, 1839.... Read more to find out. Expect this edition to be super-image-heavy (Krieg is going on, expect a lot more.)

I find it amusing that Britain hangs its monocle up with its hat. :p

Good thing Prussia has a bunch of loyal minions to swarm the enemy,
So do I. (Somehow, Britain evaded capture... IDK why.)
And those "minions" are actually representing the five armies of Prussia: Rhineland, Brandenburg, Pomerania, Silesia, and Prussia proper. I just put Danzig because honestly, why not.

And I still can't figure out what to take from Russia.

That is a hard question mostly cause most of the east is pretty well... better as manure at this point than not. There is honestly really two considerations; down towards Kiev and getting yet more farms or taking the Baltic coast and both will end up being a headache for a bit.

All taken into consideration, I might end up taking Litauen first on a quest for the Baltics; Poland, eventually, might serve be a bit better as a buffer state. Idk what might happen with Ukraine or White Russia, honestly. (in other words, I want to basically cut Russia to its present size minus Viipuri (Finnish control XD))

I know. Swiping their prestige and military really hurts them. I want to do that with Österreich...

I left you on a cliffhanger there, didn't I... Here's the first two-part episode, because... (No spoilers XD). Read on!





















[1] Winter Palace, now part of the Hermitage Museum.
[2] Either Lithuanian Rebels, or ethnic Litauen-Prussians from Memel/Klaipeda.
[HL][/HL]
Any ideas for Lithuania's new flag though? (Cannot into new episode if can't find ideas for new flag)
Also, Russia is past no return. It has fallen out of secondary. (I know right!)
