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.
If Lord El Pip will do this, I'll happily link him to a thread in the HPP forums debating the Swiss OOB in excruciating detail. Not for any practical purpose or to convert him to the modded world, just to give him more things to complain about with high accuracy.
I had a look. *Shudder*. I'll admit having Einstein available as your "Technical Specialist" Minister of Intelligence did make me chuckle, because Technical Specialist makes your spies better at espionage / counter-espionage - it's technical as in 'Q-branch boffins'.Try Switzerland.
Even within that narrow window Swiss economic policy is also dull.
Thank you for delurking to say so.Congrats on finishing this, El Pip. I've lurked it for a while and enjoyed it immensely.
I will obviously take that link as it sounds interesting regardless.If Lord El Pip will do this, I'll happily link him to a thread in the HPP forums debating the Swiss OOB in excruciating detail. Not for any practical purpose or to convert him to the modded world, just to give him more things to complain about with high accuracy.
It was just as needlessly detailed and obsessed with minutate as I had hoped.
At least you are ashamed.I'm ashamed to say that this made me laugh out loud. Sorry Pip.
Everyone needs a hobby I suppose.My wicked ploy to subvert El Pip is growing more effective.
I'd forgotten about them...well I suppose we know what your next aar is going to be!
It turns out we just barely missed out on this as explained below. Ecaudor did indeed last longer than slovakia, by one update at least.If Ecuador lasts longer than Slovakia, I will take over and follow them to their bitter end. But if they succumb, then I shall ignore them and carry on with Plan A.
Yes, I really do think he could be put to use elsewhere.While I find Gutiérrez the most interesting (in a Victoria II kind of way), I agree I will miss zombie tank archbishop most of all.
We do.Need to get a quote book thread on the aar general forums.
See? They held on pretty well. Amercia had a very embarising war to be honest. Even the russians didn't do that badly...Ecuador has been defeated and Peru now has control over the Maranon River Basin. And the rest of Ecuador The German General Staff do not believe that the redeployment of the vast US air fleet that had been ineptly bombing Peru will make any difference to the war in Europe. Because German is so comprehensively doomed that things cannot practically get any worse.
Then again, Steiner managed to last for months in that pocket, and outlast pretty much everyone but the capture of Berlin. So Russia clearly effed up a bit as well."Army Detachment Steiner is not coming to rescue Berlin." Von Killinger said. "He is dying heroically for the Führer in the Baltic instead."
III. SS Panzerkorps under the leadership of General Steiner defending Tallinn while waiting for an evacuation which will never come. Steiner's corps contains neither Panzers nor SS divisions but does contain a surprisingly large amount of Luftwaffe Militia. Despite being militia the 20th was officially a 'Storm Division', an honorific distinction that is unlikely to make any significant difference to the attacking Soviets.
So even they look a little incompetent. That they managed to find one commander for retaking Berlin with competence does give them the last shot, so to speak."Excellent news for the forces in the Alsace-Lorraine Pocket." Baron Von Killinger said.
"They might have a chance to escape?" Malar asked.
Tiso sighed as awaited the inevitable.
"No! They have a chance to die heroically needless deaths for the Fuhrer as they are now completely encircled." Von Killinger explained.
The Allies are avoiding liberating Luxembourg, because you would wouldn't you? Elsewhere the West Wall is mainly being attacked from the East, so the Allies at least have the benefit of surprise. And air support. And reserves of manpower. And a functioning industrial base. Basically they have every advantage and no excuse at this point.
Malar is my spirit animal"What news from the front."
"Bad." Kubela said.
"Could we have more detail than that?" Tuka asked.
"Yes, you probably could." Malar said contemplatively.
It is important to re-read the classics.I was rereading this because its finished now and I'd forgotten most of it (and needed to get a feel for El Pip comedy again for research)
Hurrah!Behold! I have returned!
Why blame a laptop when you can blame Paradox for the forum upgrade? Or just for anything else that needs a cause.Whats that? Oh I do believe thats the first forum update about this AAR I've received since AugustMaybe it has something to do with my new laptop, who knows at this point. I shall celebrate this momentous occasion with beer, olives and Tiso&Tuka!2019
Thank you for that. The sort of feedback a writer dreams of.Ok, I finished page 117 now, thats enough catching up for today. It was an absolute joy reading this again.
It is hard to believe it has ended. It has been going on for so long that there is still a hole where once it sat.I can't believe it's over
Heresy! But also a rabbit hole of baffling Swedish design choices."No comrade Premier... it has only begun"
INEVITABLE DEFEAT 2: COMMUNIST SLOVAKIA DURING UNTHINKABLE
I am proud of him I admit. I think I'm more Pruzinsky myself (occasionally drifting into Fritz when I get caught up in details nobody should really care about).Malar is my spirit animal
I am delighted you enjoyed catching up.
It is basically a prequel to Ged's exetential nightmare being a horrific world full of incompetence and dread where the very world itself wants you dead and doesn't paly by the rules.It is important to re-read the classics.
I'm also pleased that it stands up to re-reading.
