Unpaid Ulm PR employee

My main principle is to avoid copying the old story and simply redoing what I did. In essence, I have decided not to re-read my old AAR, as to avoid being guided by it (either to avoid it or not).Although I admire your drive to keep things fresh, trying to hard could mean that Ulm loses his authenticity.
I do recall part of its success was EU3's oddities. Particularly when I got Bavaria through spies, it really took off. Because of EU4's lack of strangeness (or at least lesser strangeness), I am trying to go other ways.
I'll admit, duckie has replaced some of that. But I intend to portray more of the others. I don't think I will redo the old "What else is going on?" chapters of the original AAR, but rather portray other countries' stories a bit more intertwined with Ulm's story.It's great, i just miss the "flag-life of other countries" and the Ferrara rivalry in the last chapters
I learnt a lot from doing AARs for non-EU games. Their different focus and game mechanics forced me to think differently about the approach. Part of that experience is certainly going to come in handy for this AAR.
