Hello to all those in the AAR world.
It’s been a while since I tried to write an AAR (and most failed, generally for a CTD bug, the files being lost in a computer crash, etc.), but I decided to try to write another one (and finish it, hopefully). I decided to base this one on the Elder Kings mod for CK2, which can be found over at their sub-forum.
This will be heavily character based, attempting to capture the feel of the Elder Scrolls world during this time period (450, Second Era)...so if you’re looking for an AAR where someone takes a small county and takes over the entire world in ten posts, this probably won’t be for your liking (although there's nothing wrong with those kinds of AARs). I decided to play a Dunmer (or dark elf) noble and play around with the Nerevarine prophecy that is featured heavily in ES3: Morrowind (although I will not be attempting to just make a CK2 version of Morrowind's main quest). For those unfamiliar with the quest of Morrowind, or not familiar with ES lore in general, you can find out about the Nerevarine prophecy here.
The mod will be played as is, although there will be one or two changes (ie., cheats) planned. However, when they are done, the readers will be notified. Also, they won’t be anything that will give me an unfair advantage against the AI (eg., giving myself 10,000 gold), but will help get the story going.
I will try to update at least once a week, to pace myself and likewise not burn myself out. This will be the first time I'm writing in a straight "story" narrative, but I only hope that, in the end, people will enjoy reading it.
I think it would also only be fair if I mentioned the inspirations behind this: For Skyrim!, by KaiserWilhelmI (also an EK AAR); and The Little Cub, by Aidun.
