Any suggestions on improvements for my next one would be welcome.
I do enjoy the narrative bits you wrote. I almost feel, since you wrote them as kind of "summary" or "conclusion" scenes, that they should have been placed at the end of the post, rather than the beginning. When they were placed at the beginning, it was almost like a spoiler for the legitimate action report that followed. Probably a picayune point, but I just thought I'd throw it out there. :)

I'd agree with that, also more narrative parts in general would be nice. I think mixed gameplay/ narrative is one of the best models for an AAR actually, yours did it very well.

What a great AAR, enormous fun and a great read.

The Queen has asked me to serve as Prime Minister and Protector of the British Isles for the duration of this terrible war. I pray that it will end quickly, but much remains to be done to protect the world from tyranny and oppression and right the wrongs of history."
Do I presume (I couldn't see it mentioned) that we're talking a young QE2?

Anyway, a great AAR - am cheering the Portuguese on. I echo the posters above, the narrative bits were my favourite parts.

Ah, good catch. It would be George VI still. I suppose the implication is that Preto removes the King and installs Elizabeth as a puppet successor. That doesn't make a lot of sense, though, as it would just make the British more rebellious. After Portugal's final conquests it could pull the same trick it is pulling to manage America--take the oppressed peoples of the British Empire and put them in charge of the British as a middleman under Portugal.
