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.
It's a shade past midnight in the UK, but I think it's still Sunday somewhere. Once again, I'd like to thank everyone who turned out to offer their congratulations and good wishes, all of which were very gratefully received. And thanks of course to Pip for nominating the Vicomte in the first instance. I'm sure he won't let it go to his head.
Looking through some of the newer AARs I've started following recently, one in particular jumped out as being host to a series of highly memorable characters even after only a month of activity. Over the last few weeks, we've been treated to marauding viking princes, grubby scheming tyrants and even a messianic drunk afflicted by megalomania. It was this final creation that convinced me I need look no further to find our next laureate.
AARlanders, please give your warmest congratulations to our next Character Writer of the Week: @Cora Giantkiller, for her skill in writing the devilish Mahdi Ivan the God-loving, Tsar of Russia in Caliphate of al-Rus: A Kievan AAR.
Congratulations! It's been a delight to read so far!
