Hi all!
I have decided to write a EU3 AAR, I have some experience with AAR's having written 4 earlier on, however, all of these were HOI3, so I want to try something new. I am going to be playing Divine wind, vanilla, difficulty set to normal. There will be a few rules however:

1. No declaration of war without CB
2. No territorial conquests unless the CB gives me any "rights" to take territory or unless I have core on the territory.
3. Can only commission one portrait per ruler
4. Cannot start to change any sliders, except the military ones before 1500

I would also like for you suggest a nation to me, I don't want a big nation, but don't pick one that is doomed to die either plz. I would rather not be playing as any of the Japanese clans, and Sweden is "nogo". Other than that it is up to you guys!

If you have any other suggestions for rules or anything, let me know!

Cheers! :)

*Edit* This is now a Brittany AAR, I will be writing in a kind of narrative style, if you have ideas for me, or complaints, please let me know.

PS: AAR starts at page 2

What about Brittany, dealing with BBB can be fun, especially with England so close, and your rules. 4 provinces is a decent start, and its a good area.

If you want something more challenging, Holland, or one of the inner HRE nations (which will be fun if you declare on other HRE nations and get the emperor involved). Or how about Mazovia, nice surrounded by Poland, Knights, and Lithuania.

Not sure how challenging any of those are, just judging by looking at the map.

Britanny will be very interesting indeed, Provence will be very challenging as well (maybe a bit too suicidal?)

Switzerland would be nice to see as well.

Nah, I am not to happy about changing the files now, perhaps for my next AAR ;)

Navarre I have never played, Norway is awesome, I have played it a lot, mainly because of patriotic reasons xD
