I like the Dutch!

Wie zie je in de dierentuin, Nijntje? is my favourite Dutch proverb!

But it just sounds nice saying the Dutch while shaking your fist!

Why that particular turn of phrase?
As a foreigner I'd expect someone to teach you some of our more .. colorful .. proverbs first.
There's an especially funny one involving a kitchen ..

News!
But probably not the kind you were hoping for.

As you've probably noticed, I haven't updated the comic in a long time. It is partly a writer's block, but mostly that I felt my game session was becoming a bit dull. It felt to be a lot of the same. Now, some will point out; that's usually what happens in an EU3 game, and some of us find that interesting to play (including myself), but I don't think it is that interesting to read.

And now with EU4 on the horizon, I am even less motivated to begin on this again. However, it is not allow gloom and misery. My intend is to start a new AAR once EU4 is released and get back in the game. So I look forward to that.

I truly appreciate the reception my AAR has received, and I hope its successor can live up to the expectations.

Will it be about Ulm? Probably. Won't that be more of the same? Maybe, but seeing the differences played out for EU4 already, I don't think so. My intend is also to try to focus more on making the story diverse and interesting.

I learnt a lot from writing this AAR, and some techniques will be altered and some will be built further upon.
