@ EUR007
I'm considering a European Underground Ranger spin-off, in the tradition of the Free Companies. My thoughts were that a set of scrolls might be discovered - similar to the Secret History of the Mongols - detailing the stories, history and characters of the EUR. Do you think there'd be any interest? This isn't something I've thought through or planned, really... it just emerged as the best way to work "EUR007" into an alternate history of Ireland :p
Haha! Yes, that would be fun!

Quite unique idea. This is becoming one of my favorite AAR's out there, you know! :D

@ EUR007
Glad to hear I'm on your list, EUR007... I'll be doing some research so that
I can spin-off a Rangers AAR as soon as this once gets on its feet. Your
character will be coming back, btw... and I have a special hat for him...

@ Martman
Thanks for your support!

@ TheMonkeyMon
I'm proud to report that I just witnessed the colony of New Ireland gain
self-sustenance. I'll be working on the war-update (violence, SUCH violence)
for the next few days though - but I think the colonization path is showing
quite a bit of promise.

@ Walter Model
Where have you gone? You must show yourself and make known to the
people your ideas of a vast Trading Empire!! I have such plans for your
story line, but fear revolts from the Great Ireland Nationalists in the crowd! :-D

Attack England update planned for... let's call it Thursday.
Colonization updated planned for Saturday.

Please raise a ruckus if I'm not on time... I can sometimes procrastinate.

I'm voting on colonisation. Can you imagine an Irish North America? That would be awsome.
And when the potato famine hits, all the refugees know exactly where to go. None of that business in the USA with slums and poverty. :)

I wasn't able to read the forum for a few days, and in that time, you certainly got some very good updates!

I'll vote btw for:

1) 1: You can really get a great update in the new format!
2) 2A: Of course I'll vote for colonization ;). And I agree that North America is the best place to start. It is also a lot closer than those caribbean and african places.
3) I would be honoured if you include me in the AAR, even if I become a great villain :D. And by the way, my nickname is actually Dutch for 'little monk'. Maybe you can make use of that.

Haha... I will be working hard to prevent the potato famine.
More fishing provinces!! (I should have made that a choice)

Uhm, I suppose I have returned! I think attacking England, and then establishing the colonial/trading empire would be a better idea to be honest, so put my vote to attacking England.

Treason!!

Lol... just kidding. Your idea makes for such a great storyline. Chapter 2:C will
be the last one to be updated - due to lack of popular demand - but as a teaser
I'll let you know that it sees you establish Guinness! Brilliant!

I'm in need of a Francophone!

I have about two paragraphs of text that I would like translated from English to French. Using an online translator, I got what I would guess is a rough translation, but if any of you readers are fluent in French, please PM me and I will send you what needs to be translated (which means you'd get a sneak peak!).

Also, can anyone confirm that the Latin for "Little Monk" is Parum Monachus?

No French for me :(.

My Latin is a little bit rusty (I had it something like 10 years ago at school, and haven't used it since), but [/i]Monachus[/i] is indeed Monk.
The Little part is actually to be meant as 'smal', 'not that tall'. I believe that Parum is more like a 'not enough' or 'to few' kind of little. Brevis is actually a 'short', 'smal', 'low' kind of little, and Parvus has so many meanings... 'smal', 'short' (qua time), 'young', 'not that many', 'insignificant', 'humble' and a few more. Pff... Latin isn't that easy... But I'm not that well in it, so maybe there is someone who is actually proficient in Latin who could help us out?

@ Nyrael
I think the original suggestion was everything that was known.
Probably I'd start with Antwerpen and Lubeck, then swing down
to grab Venice and Genoa - perhaps over to Thrace depending
on who controls it at the time. 2:C is the only portion I haven't
played through yet (I'm at about 1512 in 2:A and 2:B) - but I
want to get the updates down first, then I'll play through probably
Saturday. I haven't checked alliances/guarantees for awhile, so
there will likely need to be adjustments to these strategies.

@ asd21593
Thanks for a great compliment! I take inspiration for the graphics
from many of the great writAARs, so be sure to check out my
Acknowledgments page. Off the top of my head (and apologies if
I've left you out), FYROM has great maps, as does Monnikje.
Canonized does some great work with what must be either Photoshop
or the GIMP. EUR007 - hats. And the White Eagle Mega Campaign
(sorry I can't remember authors name ATM) has great image selection.

@ Monnikje
Of all of those, I think Parvus Monnachus has the best sound and
a pretty close meaning. As you said, perhaps someone more proficient
can help us out, but for now I think I'll go with In Nomine Parvus Monnachus.
Yes, my friend... many a brutal slaying will be done in your name :)

phargle was asking for it

A tribute to the parodies found in phargle's AAR

2zeb1cn.jpg


The Momentary Interruption of Prince Phargle

As told with a few pictures. And very little plot.

(the quality is low because I got tired. pictures and plot both. I'm really tired)

1494 - 1501

2e1x2k6.jpg


I am Prince Phargle Pherguson, King of Wales and Prince of Parody.

I am both a Prince and a King, which is less thrilling than it sounds.

I'm not actually Count Chocula, but that sounds more thrilling, so please keep the rumor alive.

By the way, I drew the picture myself.

2vjspoj.jpg


Many people are upset with me for marrying a horse.

I don't care, I love animals. Often.

She came with a bucketload of ducats. And huge tracts of land.

I thought she came with danish too, but it's just that she IS Danish,
she didn't actually have any danish.

Later there will be cake, though.

20tq72c.jpg


Often we go riding together. Look at the crazy route she takes!

Our rides always end up in a barn. A Dirty barn.

24eawja.jpg


This is my liege, King Feidlimidh II, King of the Unified Kingdom of Ireland.

He seems like a really nice guy.

My auntie made him that hat.

am6vco.jpg


I like cake.

Also, I've never tried it, but death doesn't sound thrilling.

I wonder what the fine print will say?

Oh well, time to eat cake!

2aev60o.jpg


Nom Nom Nom!

2mexq3a.jpg


Oh crud, that fine print really came back to bite me.

Worse than the horse.

I guess I'm no longer King.

At least I can still be Prince of Parody!

(And Count Chocula - keep the rumor alive)

20t5wfp.jpg


This is the new map of Ireland, 1501.

I hope they fall in the sea.

Feidlimidh's future vassals should make sure they have vaseline.


I need your arms around me, I need to feel your touch
I need your understanding, I need your love so much
you tell me that you love me so, you tell me that you care
but when I need you baby, you're never there

on the phone long, long distance
always through such strong resistance
first you say you're too busy
I wonder if you even miss me

Indeed you can... the update is about 2/3 written, but layout is always
the most time consuming thing for me. I'd say about 36 hours?

P.S. Any choice you see along the way that's listed in white text but not
linked is a planned update that I just haven't posted yet... so check back
for it at a later date!!
