What the CommentatAARs are saying about this AAR:

"This must be the most creative and engaging research write-up I've ever seen in an AAR." @nuclearslurpee

"Masterful" @Bullfilter

History Book/Roleplaying
HoI3:TFH 4.02, Normal/Normal/No AI '36 Grand Campaign as Germany, Italy and (later) Japan then Hungary... yes all at once.

Mods: I am indebted to CaptRabius for his Historical Flags mod. I created for myself an APP-6a mod, to replace and clarify some of the original counters that were in the game. Finally, I have modified this game to reflect a sort of Butterfly effect start, but with no more changes than could be executed via a CGM start for GER and ITA, and with no removal of any of the starting units (though a custom OOB and deployment has been arranged). Other slight efforts have been to reduce the cost (to all nations) for diplomacy and to move the garrison techs to the Infantry techs.

Fan of the Week 11/20/16 & 8/27/17

I do apologize if I was not exactly helpful to readers interested in my experiments, during my time of entering and exploring AARland.

I do have an explanation though, even if it is not a great one. I honestly came into this place by the back-door and early on I was completely ignorant in making the most of this forum. Anyway, as the old adage runs...Better late than never.

The only reason I am doing this now is because I want to explain the pathway and progress covering my attempts failures and successes.

*****
My first Hoi3TFH AAR was a complete folly but it did prove a good learning step if not much else. My biggest mistakes were not knowing how to get Turkey away from the Axis to give me a chance at picking a side & the direction of the narration etc. The next miscue was not knowing our the HoI3 script needs to be considered and correct actions taken. The last mistake and just as bad as the other two was my decision to play this first AAR-game in custom-mode; I took nasty penalties and that did not help me to my goal.
“Hidden Talons - The Secretary-General” - A Turkish AAR [Halted]

*****
My first completed AAR was playing Japan. It was suggested I pursue a story and that made my start less than optimal but in the end I really enjoyed how this game and story unfolded. I had a "house-rule" that I had to have a garrison division in place before I could pull fighting-units off newly captured ports and continue to advance. Here I began to better learn and work both screens and story-telling.:) Note: If a player has never played Japan. this tale should offer some ideas and insights for the player to enhance his/her own game.
Early Rising Sun
[Completed]

*****
This next one was all about playing as an Axis minor and trying to hold the right-flank of Barbarossa. I was very much enjoying the challenge and the battles were heating-up; so much so...my hard-drive fried. [Lost the Save]
AAR "Greater Romania" - 22 July 41

*****
“UK Motorway” a Blitzkrieg-Scenario AAR
My most enjoyable game, while navigating a 1939 Scenario-start as the UK. [Completed] Note: This AAR has a lot of game mechanics and strategies for newcomers to learn and also some crazy ideas to mix it up.:cool:
Weekly AAR Showcase 2 April 2017

*****
“U-boats for Uruguay” a short TFH farce
Wanted some zany "Tres Hombres" spy fun and had it. Folks here made this stuff...therapeutic-fun.;) What I liked best about this yarn, is I did not know what would happen next.[Completed]

로마는 하루아침에 이루어진 것이 아니다 ~ A Republic of Korea AAR. (Darkest Hour-New World Order) /// Ongoing, I'm trying my best to improve since my first and last attempt. I hope you enjoy it, I'm trying to mix narrative styles to keep it interesting and I can assure it will be an interesting journey. :p

So for those who don't know my Kaiserreich AARs yet, they're basically part of the same universe, SibCDC's Kaiserreich Connected Universe (KCU). I will be listing all my AARs included in that universe first and if I ever do any outside of the KCU, they'll be listed underneath. If you want to have a look at my awAARds, they're also listed in this inkwell. Enjoy your read.

Hearts of Iron 4: Kaiserreich Connected Universe



In Flanders Fields: A Kaiserreich AAR as Belgium
Weekly AAR Showcase: 6th of May - 12th of May 2018
Joint 1st place in the Q2 ACAs for 2018
Joint 1st place in the Q3 ACAs for 2018

This was the first AAR to be included in my KCU and stars Belgium in the leading role. The AAR includes 19 chapters, a prelude, an interlude and an epilogue. The story begins in 1936 with the Second Belgian Revolution, in which the Belgian people have got enough of their German overlords. The story heavily intertwines with the AAR I did on Canada and the US, which we will shortly get to. If you're interested in a diverse and fun AAR to get you hooked on a whole new brand of AARs, then this story is made for you, enjoy!

Pigs treat us as equals: A Kaiserreich MP AAR as Canada and the US
As my second AAR and the second AAR of the KCU, I had a lot of fun in writing this. It ran at the same time as "In Flanders Fields", but was much shorter, as I felt that I could tell the rest of the story from the perspective of the Belgians. As it was based on a multiplayer game, I had a lot of fun trying to fit it in with the established canon and I even tried to put in some easter eggs to connect with the other AARs. If you like short AARs with still a lot of story in it, then this one is made for you, enjoy.

The Golden Circle: A Kaiserreich Cuba AAR with a twist
Weekly AAR Showcase: 6th of January - 12th of January 2019
1st place in the Q4 ACAs for 2018

Set in Cuba during the 1960s, this story follows the rise and fall of exiled American politician Huey Long in the Caribbean. A great follow-up for those interested in how American society changed and for those who are more interested in the Cold War diplomacy of this world. Also, this AAR was based on a playthrough of the Cold War: Iron Curtain mod, so if you're interested in that mod, maybe this AAR can provide some more info, although it is really different from the original mod.

The Path of Peace: An Indian Kaiserreich AAR
Joint 1st place in the Q1 ACAs for 2019
This AAR is set in the Bharatiya Commune in the 1930s and 1940s and follows Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi's effort to steer away a war on the Indian subcontinent and unite the people of India under swaraj in a peaceful way. This AAR gives a somewhat inside look on the syndicalist world and their relation to the East. Follow Gandhi as he struggles against foes who want to prevent a peaceful unification at any cost.

Gott mit Uns: a Mildly Interactive Prussian NWO AAR
1st place in the 2019 MP/Interactive AAR of the Year
This AAR is played in the Victoria 2 New World Order mod and follows the Prussian nation starting from 1992. This AAR is interactive, which means that readers can vote in elections and influence the story in that way.

WritAAR of the Week: 29th of July 2018, 5th of May 2019

      The Throne is manipulated at every corner. Across Eurasia, men scheme and plot. The shadows are filled with many factions, and all wish for their goals to be fulfilled. With all this scheming, there is one question above all:

      Who can you trust?
  • Though the Dust of You Is Gone - Stellaris AAR, looks like this will end up as me throwing Cosmic Horror Story, adventure fiction, Space Opera, and Tragedy in a blender and seeing what comes up. It's still in its beginning stages, though, so most of that isn't obvious yet. Part 1 started as an attempt to adopt The Aeneid IN SPACE, but it's moved beyond that.
  • Confessing Their Apostasies - CK3 AAR, Mix of history book and a series of narratives, semi-interactive
  • Epirus Ascendant - the trials and tribulations of Epirus throughout history...
  • When the Night Gets Dark - poetic AAR on the Romano-Mongols, shares a universe with Rise of the Romano-Mongols (see below).

Hello, my name is Manga_Erudite and I've had some writing experience from roleplaying on forums such as Bay12 Forums as well as a brief stint writing fanfics.

After Action Reports:

Sword of Ti'an: The Advent of the Holy Exohuman Imperium: (Joint 3rd Place Winner of the Q4 2018 ACA) The descendants of a Chinese convent that landed on an ocean planet after using a precursor ship to escape Imperial Japan, the exohumans of the Holy Exohuman Imperium strive to make their mark on the galaxy under the guidance of their God-Emperors. However, dangerous foes just beyond their borders and enemies within threatened their existence, both physically and politically. Can the Holy Exohuman Imperium continue the peaceful legacy of their founder Prophet Jhun Jangshi or will the lure of realpolitik and the ghosts of the past turn them into something far more ruthless? - (Ongoing)

Deals From Beyond: A creative and admittedly terrifying take on the five Shroud entity deals from the perspectives of the contractees, who are often their first victims. Be careful what you wish for indeed. - (Ongoing)

Well, it's just the one AAR currently, but depending on the success of this one I hope to come back and advertise some more here!
About myself; recent graduate from University, am looking to write professionally and have had a short story published, so a good start. Am looking to work in video game creative development.

First and only AAR - so far!!

The Crown of Winter
A House Bolton CKII AGOT AAR


A tale of loyalty and betrayal, of war and intrigue.
Set in 8034, three hundred years before Aegon made his landing, in an alternative Westeros where Aegon's conquest was shattered before it could even begin. In the North the Starks have ruled unchallenged for thousands of years, but after a series of brutal foreign wars and crippling debt due to the mismanagements of a king the stability of the North has been shattered. For the first time in a century the Stark's rule is being challenged, and all the lords of the North are beginning to desire the Crown of Winter.


Anyway, that's what I'm working on at the moment. Hope anyone who clicks on it enjoys! It's a highly narrative AAR, since I didn't take many screenshots as it was happening.
But if this was posted incorrectly, bad format, 'you need more AAR's under your belt sonny!' or something, let me know and I'll change it as quick as someone says!

So this is my first AAR on the forums, and I’ve been thinking about doing one ever since I found the After Action Reports on this side of the forums. I’m a high school Junior fresh out of a creative writing course, and I hope you’ll enjoy what I have put together as my first AAR.

It is the year 7886, and a Doom has befallen Valyria. Flame, lava, and ash erupting high enough and with such intensity to burn alive even dragons, spewed from the ground of the great city and its peninsula. The land itself seemed to crack, allowing the Smoking Sea to fill the spot where Valyria lied. Within an hour, it is over for Valyria, but for the Empire it left behind, a Century of Blood begins.

First, the Dothraki, united under Khal Mengo, ride west into Sarnor and the orphaned daughters of Valyria bent on exacting new plunder and idols to bring back to their city, Vaes Dothrak, without any dragons to stop them. Next, Volantis, the eldest of Valyria's daughters, has declared itself the New Valyrian Freehold bent on reuniting its Old Empire, starting with Myr and Lys. And finally, Aurion, a Dragonlord who just so happened to survive the Doom in Qohor foolishly plans on reclaiming the old ruins of his homeland. Any other dragonlord lucky enough to survive either by chance or by luck is taken in the night by the people of their so-called "daughters" their heads mounting the gates of their walls in the morning. The now 'Free' cities rejoice no longer under the yolk of the Freehold, and unwilling to subject themselves to the tyranny of Volantis.

None, however, consider the existence of a second Dragonlord, one not yet a man. The shadow he would cast across the history of the known world would immortalize him as the man who right Valyria's sins. This is the Legend of Alaeron.

I hope you all enjoy my first AAR, feedback is greatly appreciated.

Howdy everyone! A while back when I was studying abroad in a European country, I had way too much time on my hands. My classes were dull, there was little work, and I just needed something to do that would pass the time. Instead of browsing Reddit, I decided to write down a story that I had in my head for several months, and man has it been an adventure. What was once a way to pass long class lectures has now become a hobby of mine. I have an entire fantasy/sci-fi series in my head that I intend to write over the next decade or so. Thank you all for being so encouraging and welcoming of a newcomer like myself. I never expected to even be read, yet alone be recognized as WritAAR and CharactAAR writer of the week, as well as getting votes for the best AAR in the quarter polls. Ya'll make me smile sometimes :)

That being said, I am in the process of writing another one based on HOI4, Ghost Recon Wildlands, Far Cry 5, and Far Cry New Dawn called Keep Your Rifle by Your Side. Link below:

https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/foru...by-your-side-a-hoi4-modern-day-story.1179113/

It tells the story of a woman named Elizabeth Chandler, who belongs to the most effective covert operations unit in the world. She will be thrust into impossible situations and somehow come out on top every time, but eventually, even someone like her will meet her match. Anyone who has played the games in question will know how the story sort of plays out, but I've made major alterations to make everything more realistic.

I started a few weeks ago, and have really tried to correct mistakes that I've made in my previous two stories: getting lost in the story, and not providing detail. The chapters here are far longer than what I'm used to writing, and every single chapter moves the story, instead of treading water. I'm having fun with it. If you take a gander at it, I hope you enjoy! Feel free to leave suggestions or rip it to shreds, I really don't mind either way :D
