InvisibleSandwich's Inkwell

The AARs of a forumite who still clings to a desire to have a username longer than the character limit. An encouraging sign, if there ever was such a thing. I should note that my earlier AARs had their images hosted on Imageshack; since the owners of that site apparently went insane those images are no longer working. Anything from The Australia Project onwards uses Imgur. I might update the older AARs' image links someday, but it seems unlikely for now.

In order of publication:

Nostalgia Freaks
My first published AAR, starring a group of immortal slackers in an alternate history scenario for a fairly comprehensive EU3 mod. It won Character Writer of the Week on May 26th, 2013, and pushed my interests as a writer towards narrative AARs.

A History Of Haiti Through the Eyes Of a Horse A deliberately miniature AAR for Victoria 2 about a dimwitted horse; one solution to my desire to write a very focused AAR.

Getting Drunk - The Genoese Conquest of Russia
An AAR in which I punched the Golden Horde until they died, and then beat up on its successors, with EU3 + Death and Taxes as my witness. In the midst of this, a series of flamboyant Genoese doges carved out an empire. Abandoned due to my efforts being refocused on writing projects outside the forums, albeit I'm sure the gameplay goal is entirely workable.

The Australia Project
A fictional account of Australian history written by the character of Liam Jacobson, with gameplay from Victoria 2/POP Demand Mod. The country of this AAR was decided by a vote. Won Character Writer of the Week on March 30th, 2014, Weekly AAR Showcase on June 28th, 2014, and Writer of the Week on August 3rd, 2014. It also placed 2nd in the 2014 VictAARian Cross awards.

FERTing on the Enemy - The House of Savoy Fights the Overwhelming Omega
A EU4 AAR based on the eponymous "Omega" mod I've been working on. Starting as Savoy, I have to balance the usual "Form Italy to avoid getting eaten" hijinks with attempts to annihilate a forcibly roided AI. First started on April 6th, 2015. Ended on June 9th, 2015.

Shadow over the Pacific: An (Axis) Australian AAR - cancelled

The story of an Axis Australia who planned to conquer the Pacific (and a bit of the Indian) Ocean. Cancelled due to inability to continue the AAR at the time. Redone (see below).

The Four Faction War: A(nother) Germany AAR

Not an ordinary AAR. The four major world powers - the Axis, the Communists, the United States and the Allies are all to be pitted against each other in a massive world war. Written narratively, whilst playing as Germany trying to take over the world. Completed.

Shadow over the Pacific Mark II: An Axis Australia

Won several awards. A complete restart of my first AAR. A Pacific-focused AAR with a variety of land, air, and naval battles whilst fighting the Allies in Europe, Asia and the Pacific as a weak island nation. Completed.

OK, let's do it:

1) The Prince: Western Rus in times of Mongol Invasion. - my first try, and frankly speaking, the task I wasn't equal too. However, the story ark is completed and I'm genuinely proud of some writing there.

2) Shahs of Shahi Shahdom - the History of the Afghan Hindu Empire - 3.06.14 - finished.

3) The Fall of House of Rurik - 3.06.14 - stillborn.

4) AARabian Nights: Tales from the Caliphate - 19.09.14 - discontinued


5)Rebuilding Great Armenia - Bagratid AAR - 19.09.14 - died due to lost save.

LsT_G's Inkwell
...​

My inkwell. Come, come, sit, grab a biscuit, perhaps some tea. Let me tell you what I do, why I do it. I write. Little surprise, you say: Many here write; What makes you different, new, why should I read your story, your ramblings?

Well, that depends on what you expect from a story. Each chapter I post is around two thousand words long. Enough for something to happen and happen in detail. Two thousand uninterrupted by pictures or author notes. I leave those for the appendixes, as the story, as dark as it may get, is still an AAR, and you will want to see how far along the game is going. I write drama, mostly. Madness and darkness is where I feel more at home. Expect tortured souls and stained battle fields. Heroes carry the weight of their world in their shoulder, for they have killed, sinned, ragged. Villains are harder to spot, and when you see them, well, you will want more than a simple horrible death from them.

So I write in Grey.

Come inside if that interests you. Yes, yes, you may take another biscuit.

A CK II fic v1.091
Mod: A Game of Thrones v0.4.0.1
Ongoing​


Applause is a narrative. It follows the War of the Five Kings, from GRRM’s great ASoIaF series, as, arguably, the most hated character in modern fiction. Joffrey Baratheon. The intent was never to make Joffrey good. Where would be the point in that be? The intent is to add something to the character, until he is a little more beyond the hormones and bloodthirst we’re shown.

You’ll still hate him. Make a character who you both want to see prevail and yet die a horrible death is the challenge for this AAR. Let’s see how it goes, after all: Everyone hates Joffrey.

Accolades: Best Character Writer of the Week - 8/12/13

Knife is a short story that was written for the ck2 writing contest. It tells the story of a small girl, sister to the Lord of a lowly castle, and who finds herself in a siege. The main theme is loss of innocence, so consider yourself warned.

---andyp1407 AKA JONSNOWSTARK's Inkwell---

A young Scottish boy with a love for strategy and storytelling found out that a game called Crusader Kings 2 was being released the following year in his best mate's PC Gamer magazine. 1800 hours of gameplay later, he wrote some stories, He thinks they're quite good. You may not, if so well WAIT. A new AAR will be up by this summer. Remember be patient! That Intrigue: +1.00, Diplomacy: +1.00, Stewardship: +1.00, Learning: +1.00 plus personal combat bonus, is sooooo useful!

The Adventures of House Paterson - http://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/showthread.php?829300-The-Adventures-of-House-Paterson-A-Game-of-Thrones-mod-AAR

My first real story, some people like it. Others don't. HA see what I did there! "Others". You know as in the Others from Game of Thrones. That was funny right, I can't tell. Anyway, people liked the characters, Neil especially! That's the tone of this story. It's not serious, it was something I wrote during my summer holidays. So if you want something to read, then there are some words in varying shapes and sizes right here!

End of an Era: A Roberts Rebellion Story -
http://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/showthread.php?829457-The-End-of-an-Era-A-Robert-s-Rebellion-Story&p=18699565&highlight=#post18699565

A tale of three families and their journey through the traumatic events during and after the rebellion. If you like a more serious(not dark) story, I'd read this!

Just started my first AAR and finally decided to post here.

Frozen Shores (Megacampaign)



This AAR will follow the Mäkelä dynasty from the Old Gods start, hopefully all the way to Hoi4.
Frozen Shores will have mods active in it, such as HIP.

Hearts of Iron III

Current AAR: The Eagle and the Pentagon
The U.S.A. will change the world completely... stay tuned for more after these messages.

Completed AARs:

Suomi voittaa - A Finland Axis AAR - Nominated for the ACA Q4 2014 award.
Live to tell the tale after the Winter War without loss of any territory. Join the Axis and conquer Scandinavia. During WWII, conquer Karelia and hopefully more. Doing all this at hard difficulty including restrictions (see aar for that). Heavily dependent on the AI, so less control for me (which I do not like, but also more challenging).

The Sun Tzu Wars - A Nationalist China Allies AAR
Playing as Nationalist China joining the Allied forces with the objective of unifying China, taking down Japan and hope to do some damage in Europe on behalf of the Allies.

Dutch Ambitions - A Netherlands Axis AAR
The Netherlands join the Axis and contribute to take over the world and make it a "better place" to live in. Led by the evil Prince Bernhard the Netherlands are supposed to conquer Belgium, a large part of France, the British Isles and hopefully take on the USA.

Awards
WritAAR of the Week: Feb.1.2015
