Welcome all to my
After some time struggling to come up with actual stuff for my actual first AAR in Victoria II, I decided to throw that one out, at least for the time being, as I simply was not to comfortable with my own writing about the period, which in turn demotivated me from playing the game to have stuff to write about, which in turn, made me play Crusader Kings II instead of Vicky. So here we are.
We'll be following the Rurikovich dynasty from its roots, in the 9th century, starting with Rurik himself. Much of what I wrote in my previous AAR thread is still true. I'm no expert to the period, and although I research a lot beforehand, don't take it all as true. The period, at least searching in English, is not super well documented, which aggravates the problem a bit.
I'll probably be sticking to a narrative approach, though there's a good chance some history book chapters will also be added, as specials, maybe between each ruler, documenting their advanced and whatnot. Still to be decided, and I also accept suggestions.
For mods, I chose HIP with everything enabled and with the Trade++ submod, though I'm still testing it and might take it off for balancing and performance issues(it seriously slows down my game). Other than that, I got Summercat's Bloodline Mod and In Heaven's Cartographic map, with all expansions except Sunset Invasion enabled.
Once again, English is not my first language, so you spot any mistakes, please let me know.
And that's about it, enjoy and don't forget to tell me what you think! Feedback is greatly appreciated.
