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.
Historically emperors that lacked pragmatism didn't live very long, so it is pretty incultureated.On a side note, at least the Emperor seems to be open to pragmatism, rather than sticking it to his ways, like many tyrants do.
Oh wow, I feel honored to have attracted the attention of a mod (in a good way obviously )! I would especially appreciate your input when I finally get to my "A Slave's Perspective" story, as on the one hand I want it to be a really tragic, heartwrenching story that is vaguely based on the real atrocities of slavery throughout history into the modern day, but I want to do it in a manner that balances being dark with being tasteful, and I would really like your input on that when I get to it.You have a nice AAR going on here, starkwolf. Keep it up, as I am much enjoying it. You are excellent at spinning a tale around mundane game events.
More on that coming soon, probably tomorrow.That sounds like a most fortuitous diplomatic opportunity. One always has to idly wonder what happened in the in-game universe to bring it about. Was there some disaster where one side unexpectently sent aid to the other, or some grand cultural event, or was it just "simeple" geopolitical realities, or some heady combination of these and more.
Stellaris doesn't work very well on the computer I have at the moment. Otherwise I would be updating this a lot more often as I have always found Stellaris to be most enjoyable to play when I make up stories in my head to go with it, and being able to share it in a forum is even better.Hopefully, these Erissu have learnt their lesson.
And yep, quite a lot of oppression and suffering must lay behind the slave production improvement governor traits!
I wonder how the other galactic nations see the Gulk-Furki practice of slavery. Are there any democratic regimes among them?
Mammalian (basically the warthogs)Ah yeah, the FDS are molluscoids. What phenotype are the Sinrath? It can be difficult to remember all other nations in Stellaris AARs...
Most AARs are a bit of a mix of at least two styles, with one style being the more important one. Your AAR for example is mostly history book, but the stories in the spoilers are narrative and one could make a case it's also partially gameplay, because the game is very much visible and you don't stray from what happens in game and use in-game screenshots to explain. The reason your AAR is mostly history book is that you do more than just relay what happens in-game. You make up reasons for the actions of the nations and characters and clearly want to tell the history of your nation and galaxy, more than simply show the gameplay.Mammalian (basically the warthogs)
edit:Also, so I was looking through The Inkwell, and I noticed a lot of references to different styles like "history book," "narrative," "chronicles," and such. I was wondering if someone could give me a rundown on what each style means, as well as what one my classify this work so far as.
