• 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.


    Real Strategy Requires Cunning

This thread is more than 5 months old.

It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose. If you feel it is necessary to make a new reply, you can still do so though.

Bravo, sir! Bravo! I am duly impressed by your very clever and astute wit. Every line is well-played, from the hilariousness of the pictures, to the bestiality, to the routes, to Darth Vader, to the love for vassals. . . I been tour d'miscreanted for sure!

@ Mohatma
I'm glad it came across well... I had to spend many hours gazing
into his eyes... I mean, reading his AAR... to figure out his style.
Well worth every minute, by the way.

@ Alfred Packer
1,000,000 hours in MS Paint!
No, just kidding... it's all with the GIMP, and glad you liked it!
I really do love cake, by the way. True story. Cake... nom...
By the way, since the reference is obscure, the below is from
Wikipedia, regarding comedian Eddie Izzard (now of TV's The Riches)
He tackles topics both contemporary and historic, including frequent
re-imaginings of historical events which result in scenes like 'Cake or Death:
Church of England runs the Inquisition,'


@ phargle
Whew, I make it through the toughest critic! I think this is the
appropriate time to quote the famous "imitation is the highest
form of flattery" line.
Imitation is the highest form of flattery.

@ canonized
Thanks for such a strong compliment!! The idea of alternate universes
in an AAR is certainly something that was influenced by Timelines.
It seems the Boosh! has drawn quite the crowd... I must rush for updates!
::scurries away to his dark writing corner::

@ Nyrael
Oh don't worry, I have plans for you ::cough:: King ::cough:: Nyrael.
Plans that Enewald is likely to discover as soon as I make them available.
{/mysteriousness} Seriously, one of the next two updates will be titled
Rise of the Fir Bolg. (that's you!)

You raised the bar a bit. It's going to be harder to do a good final chapter for the Knudlings as a result. ;) Honestly, it was a flattering, kind, hilarious, and, more importantly, accurate parody, good enough that I could kick over and die and you could ghostwrite my AAR for me. Bravo again. Bravo.

You earned me as a reader, by the way.

Brilliant stuff, great graphics, perfect length of text, just to the point, interactivity and you change style at will! Just brilliant.

(one teeny tiny nitpicking point though: please refrain from hitting space twice after a full stop, looking at these gaps is disturbing me greatly ;) )
