And the Hussites apparently don't like little Austria. (hehe, we all know that size doesn't matter! *rolleyes* )

I found your first AAR just recently and was really excited to see how it would finish until I saw your last post....bleh.

I'm happy to see you're doing another one. Sign me up because I love the picture AAR. How much time do you spend on setting up the pictures? Seems like it would take some time....

nice to see people interested!

@Alessandro F. :

1. (somethin i wanted to ask you ever since i saw you on the forums) does the "F." stand for "Farnese"?

2. well, i make the screenies, then decide which to put them together in a pic, edit the new pics with the merged screenies, then convert them to .jpg, upload them and link them to the posts here.

Presto, abracadabra, and..... voila'!


You have a pictorial AAR.



@ all:

Updating tonight i think.

He, it takes more time playing the game than doing the update. (At least for me.) Note: my pictorial AAR has more followers than my two other AARs (maybe even togeather). The time put on the update is defenetly worth it

1. (somethin i wanted to ask you ever since i saw you on the forums) does the "F." stand for "Farnese"?

Why yes....yes it does :). When first registering, I couldn't fit the whole name so I didn't include Farnese. But yea, it's definitely named after the Duke of Parma, Alessandro Farnese. My family is from Napoli so it's kinda strange that I picked him but I couldn't think of any famous leaders from Naples...

I've only been to Italia once but I'm hopefully going back next year. We did northern Italy last time so hopefully this time it'll be southern Italy/Sicily.

2. well, i make the screenies, then decide which to put them together in a pic, edit the new pics with the merged screenies, then convert them to .jpg, upload them and link them to the posts here.

As long as you don't mind doing the work, I definitely don't mind reading :)

Good luck and I can't wait for you to update. I'm playing my own game as Austria right now....I'm trying to beat the screenie from your last game. I've definitely got my work cut out for me :)

1429-1439. More boring stuff.


Hussites declare war on our long-time friend and ally and now have the nerve to ask us for military access? No f.ing way!


1.jpg


The small province Austria gained through event last session disappeared just as easily. Hey! Easy come, easy go! So far, events just as on the normal map. Oh, BTW, i won't check the events here. Not that i am very ethical or anything. Just lazy. If anyone else does it for me, i will be very thankful and give them a leader in my AAR.


2.jpg


Saxony grew large through conquest, becoming the neighbourhood Bad Boy, so we DOWed them. Then some other about 20 countries.


3.jpg


RMs as usual.... *yawns*


4.jpg


I halved the army, so maintenance would not take much needed funds from research. Minting allowed fortress improvement in the capital. (Name impossible to pronounce and/or write at 5 AM)


5.jpg


Military Accesses. Think of them as RMs taken a step further. Or as an insurance policy. Yeah, that's it...


6.jpg


Ok, so now the sh!t hits the fan... our ally Styria DOWs Croatia, who is in alliance with big bad Hungary and Bohemia. Oh, and Poland... Geez! We refuse to honor the alliance call, and then refuse to join on the other side. I mean, i am sneaky, but not strong enough to be THAT sneaky. We enter another alliance, led by Bavaria.


7.jpg


Lovely event giving us a big fuzzy nice vassal.

Now will you let your vassal get swallowed up by your much larger vassal?

There should be a rule against a two-province nation having a vassal at least seven times bigger than itself :)
