Many thanks Specialist-your support and reading has been a constant support-thanks for the Red cookie too-really appreciate thatA sudden and shocking end -- both for the King and the tale -- but in some ways a fitting one. The Godhelmings have always danced close to the fire, and kin-strife and ill fortune have always dogged at their heels even despite their apparent successes. "Uneasy lies the head," etc.
Definitely glad I could be along for the ride from start to finish
And with that...
Asantahene, for composing a particularly well-crafted AAR and seeing it through to completion, it is my honor and privilege to present you with a Red Special Cookie ●.

Been a pleasure to have you along for the ride Jabber and thanks for all the support-as for Cui Bono that is indeed the question isnt it? It's even better when the game gives you no idea but I have my theories...Mainly her grandmother's crown and army. Not sure about the guile though...
And here we thought the faction was their biggest problem. Welp! Too busy fighting internally to not see the external threat.
Or perhaps it was internal? Wulfwynn proposed the hunt. Who is to say she did not have a role in the boy's murder, being a council malcontent with -39 relationship score.
But a fine conclusion to an epic saga, and well worth the wait. Congrats on finishing this, and thanks for all the efforts you put in writing it! Been a pleasure to read.
Hahahaha thanks so much El Pip-thanks also for your unstinting support for this tale. Yeah I am tending to the latter and just leaving it as a mystery for all. Am deffo intending to get back into writing when CK3 is out-have started a new Kingdom of Jerusalem game and was sorely tempted to start writing about it such were the twists and turns-it would have been an epic! In the end I decided to give myself a wee break hehe. I will be back!All I can say is Blimey. It shouldn't be an unexpected twist ending, this is CK2 after all where child murder is a core gameplay mechanic, yet it still came as a shock. So congratulation on a dramatic and well crafted final chapter.
If you were looking to do an epilogue then I'd suggest something on who carried out the foul dead, or at least who ends up getting the blame in the narrative (they may not be the same person ) and a brief summary on where Wulfwynn and her Brothers end up.
Or you could just leave it as a dramatic mystery for the reader to think about for themselves, I gather that is quite the literary fashion in some circles.
Great praise indeed Bull and thanks for all your support over the years-am also chuffed I inspired you to get playing-always great when that happens.Serpents abound. Gadzooks!
I hope you decide to start another AAR in due course, as I will certainly miss (apart from everything else) your always-amusing illustration comments!
Congratulations for doing so! Yours was one of the AARs that convinced me to start playing CK2 and doing my own AAR on it a few years back now. I have thoroughly enjoyed this blood-soaked tale, its many dastardly and brutal deeds, and its wry humour. As is said, if you survive living among wolves, you become one.
You are very welcome Nik and thanks for your support too!What a sad end to the young ruler. And so the tale ends. Thanks for writing!
ALL: Thanks so much for being along for this ride-I have really enjoyed it and your unstinting feedback and support-I was just really chuffed to get it finished. I will definitely be back though so watch this space and take care. Hope y'all are safe and well
