Just that a, Imageshack is a lot more reliable than photobucket in my experience.

and b, fine, fine work

Too bad yer gonna just be more of the same damn Imperialist Japanese everyone dislikes these days, aside of course from Ichizawa Limbaugh, the ultranationalist radio talk-show host.

I think many of us would prefer a triumphant Vichy led to victory over Europe. Of course, not sure that's possible, since they're already at war with Britain & Co. :D

hito1 sighs. He looks at the map (computer screen) and wonder when the next chapter will arrive. :D

Congratulations on your first part, very impressive story. And I must say I liked the first years of war more. There was more storytelling those days, and you were fighting against such difficult odds that the gameplay part was always incredible and fantastic.

Best moment: the suspense after japanese dow and the sheer terror after their invasion of south china.

Congratulations once again. :)

I go on vacation....and it ends. But, I can see why it did. It is kind of funny actually, that after I read your last 5 posts, that my sympathy with your cause was starting to shift. You were no longer the underdog. I agree with your assessment of the interesting and intriguing parts of the campaign. The war with the Nationalists/Japan was by far the most riveting. There was always the chance of reverses. I thought that you bit off more than you could chew with the Soviets, and that made the story compelling. When you finally went to war simultainiously with Germany, I actually thought the end could be near again and that kept me reading. You came up with a fitting end for Li Lishen, and my references to the Mongol hordes and the collapse of their empire became a self fullfilling prophecy. My hat is off to you Myth. You did an excellant job in writing this story, even if gameplay did drive the story in the end, it did not in the beginning. And, like a aging athlete, you stepped away from it at exactly the right time. I look foward to your next work.

all true

don't worry, I'm going to try to recapture that feeling of being the (supposedly) near helpless underdog. its the situation I like best anyway :D

one of the most addictive AARs ever read. I delight myself to read another one from you, Myth
thank you, and I hope I won't keep you waiting too long!

Just that a, Imageshack is a lot more reliable than photobucket in my experience.
ehh, I like it. its good enough for my purposes :p

and b, fine, fine work
thanks! :D

yup, it should be returning late this month (again, after the 24th when my bandwidth is reset :p). I suppose we'll try to update it three times a week at first, and if comfortable with that we could try for more.

I'm very excited myself. Just played the next month and am writing my first update since August. It's been quite an eventful and exciting one, with quite an amusing resolution. Can't wait to post it. :)
