Many years ago, I started an interactive AAR (http://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/showthread.php?t=13149 ) based on EU 1.
What made this AAR an interesting one what the RPG part of it. I would like to participate again to a such experience.
I would like to play Bavaria from January 1, 1649.
-Why Bavaria ? I want to play a medium sized country. Too big would make it too complicate. Bavaria is nicely located so it can intervene in Germany and Italy.
-Why january 1st, 1649 ? Bavaria received the Electorate rank in 1625 from the Emperor but it got confirmed in 1648 at the Treaties of Westfalia. So why 1649? I want to start a peace time. For management reasons I prefer to start on January.
As for the game options, I would keep them mostly untouched except monarchs (where I would keep the historical one). All the rest would be "normal". As for the lucky nations, I would prefer to nullify that.
How the AAR would work? At start and after 1 or 2 years of playing, I (playing the Elector in the rpg part) would discuss of the orientation of the country with members of a Council (played by the others people). Each aspect - finances, "research", diplomacy, army, etc. - would be reviewed.
I would provide the company with informations about the country on a web site I am intending to create. (like this one - nothing fancy - )http://www.geocities.com/prussiaaar/)
I am playing EU3 complete (version 3.1.)
Any interested? To start, I will begin playing with at least 4 players so the Council will have at least 5 members.
In some fancy dreams, I hoped of a 2 "Councils" system which would make the RPG prevent over the game playing actually. But let begin simply by 1 Council.
The web site address is http://bavaaria.webs.com/ (it is at an early stage).
