Alscon's Inkwell





A CK II AAR that starts exactly like that. But it doesn't end there. A group of Italian exiles, people who dream of old Rome and live like the ancients, flees the pope. With its leader, Amentius (The Mad) having had a vision of heading West, they make a dubious crossing with a viking ship – and land in West Iceland, from now on called Nova Roma. The pioneers face a hard time – but are they doomed, or will they succeed? This is the tale of the Real Roman Renaissance.

In this AAR, I assume the role of a courtier or the ruler to narrate the parts of the history. The Romans begin as madmen, and while this carries through the whole story, intrigue, power and the consequences of a mysterious book find their entries as well...





Unlike in RRR, I take a purely gameplay stance in this EU IV AAR. Making use of El Dorado's random world for EU IV, and combining it with the idea of a random AAR, I take control of a country for ten years or more, trying to leave a lasting impact on the world. Hordes galore, the usual powers are quickly destroyed, new powers arise as old falls – a very dynamic world, in which I (more or less successful) try to bring some stability. God really does play dice.



What is going on on Sol III? Medieval Earth? The Hamrax are observing. And history unfolds on the blue planet as well, not influenced by whatever happens in the galaxy - really not influenced?
In this 'dual' AAR, I am playing both in Stellaris and CK II. The crew of the observation post reflects both on the events of their galactic realm as they do on what happens on Earth. While the humans are living their lives as usual - until the observers get a bit more active...
See what happens for yourself. Thousand Lights of Enlightenment - or Far(?) from Enlightenment?



The Forgotten Fifth

Ubbe Ragnarrsson is not landed in the Old Gods, thus always overlooked when faced with his brothers with their lot of land or mighty event troops. This is his story. A narrative AAR aiming to span his life, and to see if he gains eternal glory (and a fancy nickname!) or if he ends up forgotten as a footnote of history...
Embroiled in his brothers' invasion, Ubbe convinces them to rule land of his own, then builds up his strength in this war-torn land. There's torture, curses, executions - all on the path to his destiny, contested by the large shadows of his brothers. Can he step out of them?


Against the Great Animal Calamity - a mildly interactive megacampaign

The Old Empire has fallen. Sentient beasts have, from one day to the other, risen in masses. For centuries now, man and beast have co-existed, even united. But that time shall soon come to an end.
An Illumination has taken place. There's now one realm which can look beyond the veil of the Calamity. That can see the monstrosity of existence, and longs for the prosperous days of the Old Empire. The leader of this realm has the divine task of exterminating the gigantic animal realms of Earth.
You are his Anonymous Council. Freed from the Calamity, you are now helping the leader and his dynasty to make the right choice on the Path of Salvation, a future so that mankind can prevail.



The Right Hand of the Karlings


From these humble beginnings, Count Eberhard makes an audacious plan - a plan to keep the Karlings in charge of Western Europe (House Etichonen naturally doesn't profit of that in any way). Follow the story of the House as they use whatever methods available to them in order to prevail and prosper in this more light-hearted story.


And for the sake of completion, I have to name my first AAR, The Ormrberars – From Snakes to Greatness? My initial idea was to start in 867 with a legendary viking dynasty founder, then to start the narration in 1000, coronation of the first Catholic king of Normandy, then to combine the progressing history with flashbacks of the former rulers. It didn't quite work out though, and ended quite rapidly to make way for my Romans. But it provided valuable experience, and I may try this idea a second time in the future. After my Romans maybe.

HEY YOU! Yeah, you? Do you hate the Karlings? Do you hate Muslim blobs? Then I've got the writer for you!

What? No! Stop! Don't leave me...

I do AARs that I think are interesting. The places and people I choose often hold historical significance, such as my past work with the Zunbils who held a faith from before the Zoroastrian-Hindu schism, or the Severians who were noted, amongst other things, for having unique art. Don't worry, my recent choices aren't quite those. In fact, I'm exploring a new style for each of the 3 I will carry.

Here's my recent listing, also found in my signature.

Megali is a Byzantine AAR. This story will be told, well, like a story, rather than as if reading events. It starts with the reader being approached and asked to listen to a tale of a man with a dream, and the story ensues. This one is probably going to be the least divergent from my previous AARs, but I think it's at least worth checking out if not for the simple purpose of seeing if you like it.

My next AAR is going to be focused around the Alans. This one might feature a slight delay, as a sound strategy for them seems to be difficult to find. This one is intended to be at least partially comedic, lifting the heavy tone that can be seen in Severity, my first on this forum. Don't worry, though, I'll try to keep the comedy within appropriate situation, rather than randomly spurting it out.

I've talked with a couple of people, and there's a chance one of these might turn musical as well. That would sure be something, wouldn't it? I ask you to check out what I've got to offer, but no demands are made. Happy hunting!

Many people dream of power, but not many gain it.

Hello! I came to this thread to advertise my AAR (obviously). I'm playing as your always generic House Tyvercy in Volhynia, but I'm trying to develop my characters as best I can, to roleplay them according to the personality traits they have and what I think they would've done. The purpose of this whole AAR is just roleplaying, I have no plans in mind as to what I want to conquer, it just kinda goes with the flow, and that's what I like. If you have time to read and give your most honest opinion of my AAR, you'll find it here:

https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/index.php?threads/dream-of-power-a-volhynian-aar.889781/

I'm trying to do chapters every day, it takes some time to take screenshots (I usually take A LOT of them and then cut most of them and decide which ones are the most fitting, which usually leaves me with around 4-5 screens or less) and write a good story out of it, but I think I'm doing pretty well. Enjoy! :)

Sebas379's Inkwell

Hello and welcome to my inkwell! Below you will find all AARs written by me, in whatever state they are. That is, if I don't forget to add them.

The Neverending Struggle - A Nationalist China FTM 3.05
My first dabble into AARland, back when I had played only a couple of games of HOI and hardly had a clue what I was doing. It died halfway through thanks to a computer crash I believe, but I've left it up as a testament to the early days of playing HOI.

Hochseeflotte - The German Battlefleet of the Second World War
A year after the Nationalist China adventure I was reading a lot about the unification of Germany and World War I. The naval arms race struck me as particularly interesting and I decided to try and create a WW2 Germany with a powerful fleet in HOI. Thus an adventure of a year-and-a-half in real-life time began in which an at first small but later huge German battleship navy filled the North Sea and Atlantic Ocean with the wreaks of her enemies whilst the Heer crushed all land-based opposition, cumilating in a half a million strong Panzer-Heeresgruppe with over 20 battleships at her back storing through the United States of America. Won the WritAAR of the week award in January 2015.

The Vanguard of the World's Destruction. - A Nationalist China-Japan Coop AAR

A collaboration project by TehDarkMiner and myself, in which Nationalist China and the Empire of Japan join forces rather than fight each other to the death. The combined might of China's vast land armies and the Imperial Japanese Navy, Airforce and special forces is unleashed upon a world already in turmoil, but to what effect?

Invincible and Legendary - The Red Army during the Great Patriottic War

In this AAR I play the Soviet Union in a struggle to the death against the Axis powers. My first time as the Soviets fighting both the European Axis and Japan, and my first game on hard difficulty...
