Definitely NotGibbon's The Decline and Rebirth of the Roman Empire
One of those impulse AARs. I was working on my Kings and Queens of Sweden update when I felt the urge to do something else with my EU2. I didn't feel like doing something really taxing, so I though of doing a quick, simple AAR in the "First I did that and then that and in the year so-and-so I got a new Monarch" etc. style. If you want deep characters and good dialogue I suggest you find yourself another AAR (if you can settle for shallow characters and cheap dialogue I would suggest my own Sweden AAR ).
Simple as pie, I began with the Papal States (they start out with Rome, and as the Popes have latin names I wouldn't have to make up a new list of Monarchs. Did I mention I really didn't want to do anything too taxing?) and made an event which changed my name to "The Roman Empire", my colour to that lovely Imperial Purple, and gave myself french, iberian and greek cultures (in addtion to the italian I already had), and finally gave myself cores on all of the Roman Empire at its height. Did I mention that I was feeling REALLY lazy at the time?
THE WHY SHOULD I WANT TO READ AN AAR WHERE YOU HAVE GIVEN YOURSELF SO MANY UNFAIR ADVANTAGES? AND WITH NO STORY TO CARRY IT ALL UP IT'S...
Well, no, there isn't really any compelling reason to read this AAR... But I'm a lazy git and I want to write something AAR-like without having to spend a lot of time fleshing out my characters or working out my next strategic conquest.
ALSO: There'll be graphics a'plenty!
