    Real Strategy Requires Cunning

It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose. If you feel it is necessary to make a new reply, you can still do so though.

Workers of the World Unite!
A Kaiserreich AAR

Since my Last AAR, which this is the link of: http://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum...al-Struggle-of-the-Proletariat-(A-German-AAR), pre-maturely died due to me Upgrading to 1.03 of Darkest Hour, I've decided to start a new one, which WON'T get screwed by anything. (I hope). I'm playing with the Kaiserreich Mod as Russia, and difference is with the other KS Russia AARs is that - I'm going to create the Soviet Union. Before I transfer power to the Soviets, I will be RPing as Nikolai Bukharin and his supporters, then after the Transfer of Power, I will be playing as the government of the new Communist Regime, and spread the Communist Revolution across all of Eurasia, with a Eurasian Soviet Union!

Yeah. All of them were either choosing the latter 3 Options - Denikin, Wrangel, and Dimitri. I chose the SR Mensheviks and Nikolai Bukharin. Since I had a Power Outage, first Update is on Tomorrow.

Ah, you're going the easy way? Much funner to win the civil war than peacefully transform. :closedeyes:

Now this I agree with. Also a bigger challenge, since Japan tends to attack the SU after the civil war is over, and it's harder to win if you didn't have so much time to prepare. As it stands, this'll only get really interesting if you're too late to save the CoF for whatever reason.

Yeah, maybe so, but I might plan to take over Japan and it's alliance, All of the Chinese Factions + Mongolia, Indo-China, and make lots of puppet states out of them, while sparing the Bhartia Commune, and Burma and Vietnam, if they become communist, as well as aiming for Afghanistan, Persia, and the Middle East + The Ottoman Empire. Hell, maybe I might try just developing while the German Empire moves in to take over all of France. BUT, usually when CoF and the Kaiserreich start fighting around 1939 or 1940, the Internationale wins.

"Russia, January the 3rd, 1936. Dissent is high, the people are angry, the peasantry are worked, enslaved, and starved to death, as well as the workers. The reason? The bloody Government.

DarkestHour2013-07-0814-21-16-241_zpsb583b45e.jpg


They say that they got their power free and fairly, but they truly got it through death and bloodshed, and by forcing their entire population into the battle, while being puppets of the German Pigs! They are a disgrace to Mother Russia, and her children! Tomorrow... is when I will avenge Mother Russia's wounds... by killing the man who inflicted them... Aleksander Kerensky. This, I promise for the sake of Mother Russia, for the sake of the Peasantry, for the sake of the Workers, for the sake of Lenin!"

January, the 4th... 1936

DarkestHour2013-07-0814-25-14-629_zps8359116e.jpg


After the Assassination, the Lone Gunman ran into an alleyway, and when he heard the police surround him, he pulled out a grenade, placed it on his head, and held it there, and screamed out: "I die for the Proletariat and Soviets of Russia as a Martyr!" He then pulled out the pin, and the Grenade exploded, blasting his head into pieces, as well as more explosives attached to his jacket, which promptly blew up, and blasted his ENTIRE BODY into pieces. The Police and Guards ran in 5 seconds later, to the sounds of screaming and crying crowds, only seeing body parts everywhere. Meanwhile, the 3 Shots that Kerensky got were 2 in the Chest, and one in the head, which was a fatal shot. Soon, the combined forces of all Leftist Factions in Russia quickly secure the Duma, while Militia successfully repeled both Denikin's Forces, and Wrangel's Forces. The Lefts were in Power. The majority of the Leftist Coalition were Syndicalists and Totalists, so they let Nikolai Bukharin seize the position as Prime Minister.

Yeah. On previous runs, even when I choose Nikolai Bukharin, I still get worker unrest. I'll just edit them, saying it's because of the Capitalists thinking that I will purge and kill them, and that they have a Red Scare.

Black Monday

Meanwhile, in China, the Qing Empire declares "The New Reformation". Nikolai Bukharin doesn't believe this though, and hopes that the Qing get overthrown in a Communist Revolution, and that the Communist Revolution would spread to all of China.

Things were relatively quiet, but soon, the Giant Goliath, Germany, and all it's businesses, and Private Organization, and Capitalism, gets it's first hard blow. The German Economy now isn't slowly declining, it has now went straight through the floor, as the German Kaisermark loses value, and Businesses reliant on Germany fall. After the initial fall of Black Monday, the Germans foolishly declares that the Invisible Hand of Capitalism would save the day. The Germans will be proven wrong, as while the Capitalist Countries have massive revolts, and lose money, the Socialists get more money, and hopefully, the Internationale will be the Richest alliance in the world, richer than both the remains of the Entente, and Mittleeuropa.

In other news, the Commune of France, the leader of the Internationale, has declared that there will be no delays for the Congress of the Third Internationale, (or Третий международный in Russian) and the Internationale Alliance celebrates in this.

Soon, at the end of the month of February, two events happen. First of, famed Russian Scientist, Ivan Pavlov, famous 1904 Nobel Prize winner for Medicine, and his works on the Digestive System and Classical Conditioning, has died. Second of, even though the Communists rule most of the Duma, and that there is a Communist Prime Minister, Since Russia hasn't cut off any Private Industries yet, it still gets effected by the Black Monday, but thankfully, not as much.

The Black Monday hitting Russia, plus the Communist Duma and Prime Minister, gave Capitalists an excuse to be mad, so Nikolai Bukharin sets up the NKVD, a Communist Version of the Okhrana, to get rid of the Capitalists revolting, and planning organized strikes and bribes. Nikolai Bukharin also finally decides to extend the power of Russia to the Soviets and Communes of Cities, Towns, and Villages.

On 1.02 Kaiserreich Version 1.3, I beat the Germans and their Mitteleuropa, (while Ukraine, which was Communist, didn't do crap) and I was just going to invade the Balkans, until I upgraded.

Proletarii vsekh stran, soyedinyaytes'!

Transamur... Ever since the Russian Civil War, the Japanese stole our rightful Russian lands south of the Amur River. Soon, Bukharin will implement it into Russia again.

DarkestHour2013-07-1708-22-26-840_zpscd844b81.jpg


Meanwhile, the ONE of the Pretenders of Christianity, the Roman Catholic Church, chose Eugenio Maria Giuseppe Giovanni Pacelli as the new false "Christ on Earth", giving him the name "Pius XII". It's obvious that the Russian Orthodox would not care about the Roman Catholics, but more so, that Southern Italy, which used to endorse Catholicism, is now Communist, and now condemns all of Christianity. The Protestants, Catholics, and even the Orthodox. The simple folk of the Orthodox Church are mad, but Nikolai and all Communists alike in Russia praise the Socialist Republic of Italy.


Soon, the First Congress of the 3rd Internationale occured. Including the Heroes of France and Great Britain, Sebastian Feure and Philip Snowden, some Indians from the North-East, Pancho Villa of Mexico, John Reed and the CSA (The civil war did not start yet), Nikolai Bukharin of Russia, and many more. It was a great time for all socialists!

DarkestHour2013-07-1708-27-38-878_zps6951032f.jpg


Then, Nikolai Bukharin, after the end of the Congress, arrives in Moscow, and declared it the Capital City. The Duma moves, but it won't be needed much longer.

DarkestHour2013-07-1708-32-43-780_zps7ecf51f2.jpg


The Germans, on July the 3rd, Six months after Black Monday, still had unemployment rates at a high rate.

DarkestHour2013-07-1708-36-04-114_zpseb5f6ec1.jpg


Bukharin, approved of improving Scientific Contributions, and used the Government's money to pay for Physics, Math, Rocketry, and Chemistry...

DarkestHour2013-07-1708-36-42-282_zps09663cbb.jpg


Then, he declared Russia a Modern and Secular State...

DarkestHour2013-07-1708-38-52-179_zps9797faf4.jpg


Then, on August 24th, 1936, his plans to declare Soviet Russia, have sparked. The Capitalists blamed the Socialists, of course, but there was no more space for the pigs to run or hide.

DarkestHour2013-07-1708-40-35-750_zps0fa3d211.jpg


The Protests expanded, and soon, the Workers wanted the Capitalists to die, and for Nikolai Bukharin to seize Russia, and declare the Proletariat Dictatorship.

DarkestHour2013-07-1708-40-53-680_zpsa94be313.jpg


And, with the power, Nikolai Bukharin declared a new Communist, Soviet state.

DarkestHour2013-07-1708-41-32-442_zps547a3f14.jpg


There was no one that denied, Soviet Power has been successfully established.

DarkestHour2013-07-1708-42-16-489_zpsb29d5acb.jpg


And, the Cabinet even showed it, with Non-Communists either Imprisoned or killed. Both Denikn and Wrangel are imprisoned, the remains of the Romanov Dynasty was finished, and all Leftist Parties were merged into the Communist Party. Bukharin, decided to split it into 4 separate Parties - The Totalist Party, the Syndicalist Party, the Menshevik Party, and the Bolshevik Party.

DarkestHour2013-07-1708-44-16-512_zps22e7ff9b.jpg


The Internationale couldn't be used as the Anthem, or there would be confusion between the Commune of France and the USSR during the Spartakade, so a Contest was hosted for the new Anthem. The Anthem was God Save the Tsar in Instrumental for 3 Days, until the New Anthem was Revealed...
