Yes, a very abrupt ending, but altogether a fun AAR. Made me laugh
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.
You're welcome!Thank you.
Funny you should mention tying a Stellaris AAR to an old EU2 one (Pedro the Unwashed being from P is for Portugal), but anyone who has been around long enough to remember My Big Fat Gujarat might recall that that zany tale contained a very obvious Stellaris sub-plot. The Zloqtana of Aldebaran IV had a Stellaris-style Observation Post above Sol III , or Slob III as they called it, and their observation of the Sultans of Gujarat was far from passive. In the very last chapter they even seemed to be about to get their come-uppance from a Fallen Empire. All that written 12 years before Stellaris came out! In fact, I'm pretty sure Paradox pillaged that AAR for ideas when they were designing Stellaris, but I won't bother suing them for plagiarism since Stellaris is such a great game.A most enjoyable ride I admit the conclusion seems a little abrupt, but overall that's a small blemish on what has otherwise been an entertaining experience.
...Though I really think you missed an opportunity by not tying the Ganlarev somehow to the origins of Pedro the Unwashed
I do apologize for the abrupt ending. I felt quite bad about it, but as can be seen the end of the game was pretty quiet and there really wasn't much in the game that inspired me to write, so I just decided to get it out and finished off as quickly as possible.Yes, a very abrupt ending, but altogether a fun AAR.
