This is your punishment for dragging me back into Aurora4X.
At least you have retained your taste.Now, to my understanding, it is traditional I believe for the Fan of the Week to provide a few recommendations for the rest of the board to enrich all who pass through this thread, and to do as much I shall now endeavor:
- In long-running, main stay AARs to which all readAARs should be directed, the newcomers to enjoy the majesty and splendor of the work and the veteran forum-goers to be reminded of its persistent existence once again, I can do no better at the present time than to highlight once again The Butterfly Effect by El Pip (cursed be his name!). The finest slower-than-real-time AAR on the board has of late only deepened its awe-inspiring majesty with recent digressions into 1930s material science, aircraft engine cooling systems, and of course British inter-service factionalism. Truly one cannot ask for more from an AAR.
It would be interesting to see how China would do if forced to face a Japan under the wise and benevolent leadership of only the IJN. But then such geniuses would never get sucked into a land war in the first place.
- In recent arrivals, it is my pleasure to direct the readAARs to RustyHunter's Republic of China HPP AAR, featuring the HPP mod which can always benefit from greater exposure on the boards. Join RustyHunter and the rest of us as
conclusive proof is given that the Imperial Japanese Army should have been disbanded and its assets folded into the far superior Imperial Japanese NavyChina kicks ass.
I can thoroughly recommend not clicking on this. While it is indeed most excellent it would also serve as a gateway drug to Aurora itself, and that is not something I could have on my conscience.
- In classics, the great works of the past, I shall diverge from my usual purview and recommend Blue Emu's Ad Astra, a forum game/AAR played in a now quite ancient version of a game called Aurora, which I'm sure I've recommended in a past listing. It is perhaps a different experience from the usual AAR fare on these boards but this is of course all the better to broaden the horizons of newcomers and veterans alike.
An excellent choice, congratulations indeed @roverS3 a richly deserved win.And thus my historic reign as Fan of the Week comes to an end, and it is time to name a successor for the crown. Our next Fan shall be a member whose comments though sometimes infrequent have been always thorough and insightful, contributing greatly to the roleplay and worldbuilding of any thread he visits. I speak of course of none other than @roverS3 - come on down my friend and take the crown.
No, really, it is quite heavy and my neck hurts from wearing it all week...
I'm flattered. Your comments on Road of Queens have also been a delight, as was your recent entry into Talking Turkey.@roverS3, it is far easier to say thank you to someone that I have read and been enlightened by than someone that I have never met. Congratulations @roverS3!

Don’t worry, it was mainly me falling off the hoi3 train onto the eu4 wagon. Sorry if I made you think otherwise.(I might have chased them away...)
It is from my private collection.Thanks. Where did you get that old-style emoji?
