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.
I mean to be fair the HOI4 era has plenty of evil countries to pick from, but few AARs there go into the atrocities actually committed by the protagonist nation. Honestly I think this is the darkest megacampaign ever; the only two that come close are Wiz's Germany one, where Germany becomes an absolute monarchy, and Hisham's Al-Andalus run, where Al-Andalus becomes a totalitarian socialist state under Andalusi Beria- both on Something Awful. I'm really glad the mods bent the rules and gave this megacampaign the opportunity to really explore the consequences of Fascism.I've never read an AAR where I've rooted against the protagonist, but there's a first time for everything, I suppose.
