THE CROWN OF GOOD KING WENCESLAUS
Greetings, loyal gamers ! Welcome to my very first AAR in EU4. As my signature shows, I’m much more of a CKII player. After about 100 hours of gameplay in EU4, I feel brazen enough to start an AAR to chronicle my progress and/or lack thereof.
For the record, I have played as Bosnia and Cyprus, abandoning while the Ottomans were destroying me. I ran away to Thailand (pre-Mandate of Heaven), but after 400 years of gameplay the result was pathetic. Idem as Ethiopia, where my old nemesis the Ottomans eventually caught up with me. Then I tried Burgundy, which wasn’t so disastrous.
This time, my starting nation is the independent Kingdom of Bohemia, member of the HRE. Dateline : 1444. The style of this AAR will be dynastic 3rd-person narrative. Trying to duplicate real-life history does not interest me, an alternative Europe is my reason for playing. (As Burgundy, I did not create the Netherlands.)
My goals for the first 200 years :
— expand both within and without the HRE, hopefully attaining the Baltic Sea
— develop trade
— become Emperor at least for a couple of generations
I wish you a pleasant reading.
