• Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise.

I promissed a poll in the last AAR, so a poll you shall recieve. I decided to make this Poll interesting. You will pick the nation for me, but the nations that can be choosed are Merchant Republics. So the Options are as Follows:

The Hansa-Loser

Genoa-Winner

Venice-Loser

Cookies gained: 15+ a Shipment of Brownies + Some Sweish SEMLOR

Oh, and since i promissed Beowolf1990, his vote is worth 2 votes. Why? For the lolz (and he picked good game goal for my now failed Avignon AAR). Dosn't mean I can't be bribed with virtual cookies though. Going rate is 2 Cookies a vote, MAKE YOUR DESIRED NATION WIN WITH COOKIES!!!!!:rofl:

And I am entering this AAR into the "Writing with the StAARs" contest. And I will continue it even when the contest ends. I was going to do a Vicky 2 AAR for the Contest. But I'm still learning the ropes of that game, and no nation really interested me.

And heres a fun bunch of videos about how much I like money.:D

Any way. I need to make a table of Contents so Yeah............


Lets Rock and ROLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:cool:

You don't see too many AARs on The Hansa. So I say The Hansa. Venice would be too easy. ;)

Funny thing about the Hansa, when ever I play them, i have a sudden urge to Vassalize everything. My current non aar Hansa has all of Germany, North Italy, and Holland Vassalized.

I lurked your last AAR and was highly amused. Personally I think you should have genoa release Corsica (that'll make it a Merchant Republic) and play them, but failing that, Genoa itself isn't bad.

Welcome Captain Dan. That is tempting, but I'm scared of Aragon when I play either Sardinia or Corsica.

wow, I opened a tap at your AAR, browsed a bit around the internet, looked at this title and thought for a moment this was the opposite of "best writer of the week". That people would pick the worst AAR around :)

That would have been horrible.
