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.
Congratulations! An even dozen of wins is quite the achievement.
Congratulations ! Well deserved and a 12th win, that's amazing.
Thanks all! I must confess it's a good feeling to be recognized like this - even though I'd probably be as active no matter what. The great thing with AARland is there is so many great fans - not only the "big boys" that get recognized like me and stnylan - but people that comment and encourage without having got this awAARd a dozen times. The number of comments on an average AAR might have lessened the last few years, but the amount still is large. And as a certain someone have said, comments are the life blood of AARland!
While I may have written that in the context of Homer, Dante, and Tolstoy, I believe it is also true here in AARland. Every AAR is an invitation to join in a pilgrimage, a journey, a sojourn, perhaps through the cosmos (as in Stellaris), perhaps through pictures, perhaps through characters invented or historically reimagined.Writing is the manifestation of our attempt to understand ourselves, our place in the cosmos, and our destiny. Reading, then, is the endeavor to partake in the pilgrimage of the self through a world of violence to the cosmos of loving abundance. We read to heal ourselves, to discover ourselves, to save ourselves.
