Welcome, Paradox Forum
This is, as far as I'm concerned, the first AAR that plans to span from England in the 11th century to the USA in the 20th century. I've already done several mega campaigns (Not AARs), so I know the converters that are available to me are usable.
As of right now, I've decided to play as the Count of Norfolk. Playing as anything of a higher status would be too easy for me. As a count in a fairly small duchy, I will have room to expand and improve.
There will be lots of images showing the going-ons in the game. I will write it in a Role-Play History-Book hybrid style, in present tense (he invades, she gives birth, etc...). I will play as though I am the character: Evil ruler = evil choices. Idiot ruler = idiot choices.
DLCs I will use
I own most DLCs for each paradox game. Some, I don't use because I don't consider them very entertaining.
-Sword of Islam
-Legacy of Rome
-The Old Gods
-Sons of Abraham
-Conquest of Paradise
-Wealth of Nations
-Art of War
-A House Divided
-Heart of Darkness
I never play paradox games without mods, so why should my AAR be any different? In Crusader Kings II, I will use a combination of mods that add a little flavor and challenge. Some changes include more devastating diseases, younger education and adulthood ages, more AI actions, and slower cultural conversions.
In Europa, Victoria, and beyond, I will add mods (custom or otherwise) that fit with the current world status. Mods that add flavor to a world that has already been in play for half a millennium or more. I also have a custom mod that extends the EU4 end date to 1836, as well as adding new technology and events.
Crusader Kings II (1066 - 1444) (COMPLETED)
Europa Universalis IV (1444 - 1836) (COMPLETED)
Victoria II (1836 - 1936)(COMPLETED)
Darkest Hour (1936 - ~1945)
By the end of this AAR I would like to have done the following
-Become King of England ✓
-Unite the Islands of Britain ✓
-Colonize North America ✓
-Lead the USA to independence ✓
-Spread from the Atlantic to the Pacific ✓
And, who knows, maybe we'll annex Mexico and Canada (51st and 52nd states????)
