As per my modus operandi, I am here to distribute this week's honors a day early. I love a lot of the CK2 AARs out there. Honorable mention to SgtSmuckers and his AGOT story on the imbecile warrior of Lannisport. KHUU! KHUU! KHUU!
However this showcase would best be served by pointing out an AAR and user who has already one an award for his CK2 mod. @Silfae has done a tremendous job in weaving his narrative story of a rulers dirty nature into a display of how his in-development mod works.
Sweet Arabyan Nightmare - Geheimnisnacht-dev-AAR deserves about an hour of your time to binge read and then your sub. The AAR is set in the Warhammer universe of which I have no knowledge of and of which silfae lets you know you don't need to know anything about it either. I believe the Geheimnisnacht mod has already won an award.
Congratulations to silfae!
Thank you, everyone, and thank you Italianajt for the nomination and your praises, I'm really flattered by your words.
I would like to point out, though, the mod itself is a group-effort, I'm just a member of the team.
Yes, the AAR is set in an non-lore heavy area of the Warhammer setting, therefore knowing more or less about that universe doesn't change much. For the most part it reads like a particularly dark Arabian Nights story.

Alright, for the showcase of this week, I would like to nominate Dreams of Being the Sword of Morning (aGoT House Dayne AAR), by @JNOGaming.
The story takes place in the A Song of Ice and Fire universe and follows the story of the young Lord Edric Dayne of Dorne and Arya Stark of the North.
The chapters alternate between the action in the realm with some in-depth character-focused chapters dwelving into the thoughts and ambitions of the two main leads, offering some interesting insight on their struggle to conciliate their lust for power and revenge.
A good reading. Congratulation JNOGaming.

A Song of Ice and Fire sure seems to be popular amongst AAR writers for CK2.
Indeed, there are almost as many as there are for vanilla (if not more).

Thanks everyone, this means a lot. I appreciate all the support. My laptop messed up, so this is something nice to come back too.

Is there anything I have to do now, like nominate or anything. I'm a bit of a newb still.

Okay, so I tried to look at something to showcase outside of CK2 and outside of the Game of Thrones mod, but unfortunately the main way I play CK2 is the Game of Thrones Mod and I didn't feel it would be genuine me picking something outside of my interest. So I'm going to leave it to someone else to pick outside of this specific part of the AAR's.

I would like to nominate for the Weekly AAR Showcase......

The Crowned Stags - A Game of Thrones Mod
https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/foru...ned-stags-a-game-of-thrones-mod.865009/page-3

I love the idea of exploring a different Robert than the fans of A Song of Ice and Fire have come to know through the books and TV shows. In the lore he is described so differently to the character we see, so it's interesting to me to see how things could have been. My whole AAR is based off a what if premise and so is this. Also the writing is great, reading like a history book similar to one of the Game of Thrones lore books I have, and I can't wait to see how the Reign of Robert Baratheon goes in this.

I would have done a link with the name but I couldn't figure out how without keeping the house computer away from others for too long.
