On the 5th of April, 2010 a collection of books was found in one of the lower vaults of Moulins castle in Bourbon. Upon a brief inquiry by a set of professors from the University of Paris, they were deemed to indeed be penned down by the ancient ancestors of the Bourbon Kings of modern France. Ecstatic, King Louis XX de Bourbon requested the finest scholars in France to aid in translating the ancient Frankish into a more modern French so that he and his family could find out more of their ancient roots.
In the end, what the scholars discovered was glory and ancient wisdom a plenty… but also a long list of new sins to be placed upon the Bourbon heads. However, the Bourbon monarchy was so intimately tied in with French society that the negative blowback soon changed into a sort of mysterious and “sexy” new image for the Bourbons and even was the cause for a new television series… the Bourbons.
This AAR will be focused on an alternate history scenario where the Seigneurs of Bourbon arise from their humble roots to become one of the most powerful dynasties in Europe. As the focus on this AAR is more on family matters than general strategy, I will be playing this very slowly and will most likely not feature many screenshots… tough some will appear in most important junctures. The AAR will be formatted in a diary style with each character writing their own story.
There are only two rules I will follow:
- Ironman: I am going to Ironman this campaign to give it a more realistic tone.
- Roleplay: Each character will be roleplayed as they are.
