Excellent, cannot wait for the next update! Will you be working on your Hungarian CKII AAR?
Glad you'll be reading, and yes, of course I'll be continuing the CKII aar. I really enjoy putting that one together and I am in no way abandoning it. New pages will added to the Chronica between posts here!
Like the set up and interesting starting time. Never thought about a Cromwell inspired GB in EUIV
Yeah, you don't see too many AAR's past the Grand Campaign start date in general, save for the occasional American Revolution. I thought it would be a fun period to cover. Plus I seem to have a thing for AAR's involving tyrants and dictators.
The perks of running the library, of course, involve seeing when exciting new AARs pop up. This looks like no exception!
As much as I don't like Cromwell, this should be good. I assume you'll be basing it off the Civil War event chain (as a starting point, at least)?
Yeah, Cromwell's not exactly a great guy. He should make for some interesting AAR events though! I'll be following the First Civil War exactly as it happens in history, and I'll be taking the reigns from 1646 on (Second Civil War). I've played through the scenario a couple times and noticed the event chain for the Civil War is kinda lacking... but I can always add to it where I feel it's needed.
The Second Republic
I take it?
Always good to see an AAR with a startdate other than the default - personally, I've never been able to get into games starting after the Grand Campaign, not quite sure why. As much as I'd hate to actually live under the Lord Protector (all work and all pray makes Britain a dull country, not to mention the ugly state of that flag!) I look forward to seeing where you go with this. Oh, and try to be nicer to the Welsh and Irish this time, for Densley's sake.
You know, I didn't really think about it in any similarity to the Republic until after I'd made that first post. As mentioned, I must have a thing for writing about tyrannical dictators! As for Cromwell being nice to the Welsh and Irish... I'll see what I can do. Old Ironsides is a jerk though.
So beautiful... good luck, and I'll be following!
Great, simply great, subbed and is anticipating the comming chapter!
There'll be some prelude and First Civil War history coming up soon!
Already so many subs. I've always been fascinated by the English Civil War, so looking forward to this. And quite an entertaining prelude, as well!
Yeah, the English Civil War really is an interesting subject. It definitely a profound affect on British history from that point forward. I thought it could use some AAR treatment. And hey, if my version of the Protectorate outlives the real-world counterpart, it should make for some interesting alternate history!
