This is about a game with HoI v1.3a, the Starfire mod version F3A, normal/agressive. The game starts right after the Anschluss in this mod. Country is the UK.
House rules are, basicaly: don't take military control of my allies, don't cheat (except for balancing reasons - I will tell you when I cheat, how and why), don't redeploy any forces until the war breaks out and don't send unbrigaded divisions to battle against european forces (militia and cavalry don't count). To add something more, I will exploit the game engine and AI to achieve my "goals" when I feel like doing so, and of course will use all knowledge I have from my previous UK games with Starfire. I will also ignore the Starfire restrictions (via events) on certain slider settings, using the "freedom" cheat to nullify them when the restricting events come.
The names of the journalists, as well as the newspaper name, are completly fictional, and if there's something similar it would be only a coincidence, as I didn't mean to. Also, keep in mind that speeches and some newspaper articles are not taken from historical sources. Since it's a fictional work, I reserve the right to don't necessarily adopt the real character's personalities and/or opinions on them.
As I'm not an expert on graphic arts, the newspaper format may change during the AAR so I can test new effects and techniques.
Any suggestions and criticisms are more than welcome, here in the AAR thread or by PM. But please don't go off-topic!
