• Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.

Very "eleventh hour" but here we go. Before I list, I would just like to offer the view that the quality of writing in AARland is extremely strong; there really is something for everyone and the sense of community that was present when I first joined twelve years ago is as strong (in some ways stronger) than ever.

So, here is my list; I have yet to really explore CK2 or Stellaris, more for lack of effort by me than an absence of good material:

EU4

1. Vanguards of the Revolution by @AxolotlKnight (https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/foru...onary-france-aar.1404929/page-2#post-26765231)
2. Historical Record of the Regiment de Grenadiers a Pied de Normandie by @cm_spitfire (https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/foru...nt-de-grenadiers-a-pied-de-normandie.1242741/)

Vic2

1. Echoes of a A New Tomorrow: Life after Revolution in the Commonwealth of Britain by @DensleyBlair (https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/foru...alth-of-britain.1201433/page-20#post-26770653) - on this one, this is not just IMO the best Vic2 AAR, it is one of the best AARs out there, full stop / period.
2. Annuntio Vobis: A Papal History of Italy by @slothinator (https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/foru...history-of-italy.1402469/page-3#post-26769895)
3. May the Sun Never Set: A British AAR by @Jape (https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/threads/may-the-sun-never-set-a-british-aar.1394423/)

HOI4

1. The Saar Offensive a single battle AAR by @GeneralMiller (https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/foru...ve-a-single-battle-aar.1400637/#post-26767255) - a wonderful example of how AARs can be brilliant as well as brief!
2. The Thorn of the Rose by @stnylan (https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/threads/the-thorn-of-the-rose.1385418/page-14#post-26770699) - simply put, some of the best narrative writing that you will ever see.
3. The Fifth Empire - A Fascist Portugal AAR by @Knave (who seems anything but) (https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/threads/the-fifth-empire-a-fascist-portugal-aar.1403714/)

Other

1. (EU Rome) Civis Romanus Sum (An EU-Rome Vae Victis AAR) by @Bullfilter (https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/foru...-vae-victis-aar.1102893/page-61#post-26770021)
2. (HOI3) "A werhraboo and a hat in charge of Italy" A story AAR by @Farsky (https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/foru...a-hat-in-charge-of-italy-a-story-aar.1312087/)

And finally, "the Daddy"...

3. (HOI2) The Butterfly Effect: A British AAR by @El Pip (https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/threads/the-butterfly-effect-a-british-aar.229679/) - superlative defying excellence, the greatest of them all. The ring of power, if you will, of AARland.

Thank you very much for organising and advertising this, particularly @Nikolai

My pleasure. :) I think I may have made some kind of record with presenting the results in 1.5 days from deadline.... :p :D

The tabulation was a surprise, turns out the new forum software really likes my google docs document I got from @loup99 . :) Just copy and paste, and voila. :)
