• 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

And so turns the wheel to Sunday, and another week.

My successor to Character Writer of the Week will be @hjarg for the combination of Lars and Massimo in Rebirth of a Nation -an Estrucan Tale. The two storytellers, one through the writing on his tablet, one through his academic book and conversations with the contemporary audience character, make for a rich and layered saga that is fascinating reading in the Roman world.

Congrats @hjarg.

Of course, Rebirth of a Nation was sadly last updated more than a year ago - so you might have the wrong AAR by hjarg nominated.

Thanks, @Jestor
Just, as @HistoryDude pointed out, this is an old and abandoned AAR. Due to the fact that Imperator was not such a good game. The recent patches and dev diaries show a lot of good changes though, so I might pick it up again. I also enjoyed writing it.

Also, giving this nomination free-for-all. Sorry about that!
