I am thinking of doing an Arthurian AAR. which faction should I play as? i made a poll with the factions I sifted out and prefer.
Eotenas, I've never seen a Germanic ATW AAR yet, they're a cool faction. It's nice to see people doing these. I still haven't gotten around to doing my Ui Neill AAR, I held off before because of all the new Gaelic stuff in 0.7...
thanks for feedback. I liked powys so much, i added warpaint to their shirtless men (is that at all historically plausible?)
the germanic are indeed fun to play, but its tough because your forces are generally limited to your starting forces.
i will probably hold this off till .7 depending on how soon it is.
Go Powys, they seem to be disadvantaged in terms of position. Jutes on the other hand are extremely well positioned.
Here is the price of freedom: Your every drop of courage, ounce of pain, pint of blood,...paid in advance.
I doubt it (it's really just Picts and 2 of the 4 Gaelic factions) but anyway, nice initiative.i added warpaint to their shirtless men (is that at all historically plausible?)
You need to take a muscular, aggressive approach with the Germans in particular I find, you need a fair few settlements under control to bear the expense of the army you need. Don't hesitate to cannibalise your fellow Germans if they look weak...the germanic are indeed fun to play, but its tough because your forces are generally limited to your starting forces.
Yes, sorry for not clarifying: 0.7 is the latest released version.i will probably hold this off till .7 depending on how soon it is.
pardon me, i mean when the next version is out. (ie with musicmod and etcetera)
with the powys shirtless spearmen, i figured that shirtless was ugly without tattos of soem sort (probably from playing EB as casse to much )
in fact, i used an eb texture as a template.
tested a campaign as jutes.. its fun.. but the generals cavalry I think are a little rigged. I managed to kill 800 soldiers alone with them, whilst the rest of my army only killed 500. I've won counteless battles vs the seaxe who betrayed me 4 years into the campaign. i am playing on vh/h (i dont like the battles to be overrigged in the AI's favour.)
also, i remember seeing an AAR with a cool feature: music. in every chapter, I will suggest a track from the mod's musicpack that i think best sets the mood for the chapter. (or section of it) in otherwords, you'd better have the musicpack to enjoy this AAR fully!
anyway, i'm preparing to start this very soon, and the reason i said i wanted to wait for .7, is because i didn't install it... oops! it has got to be at least 50% better than .6!
hey, i have some queries for this.
1. should the campaign be broad, a tale of the national exploits and etc.? (3rd person omniscient)
or the exploits of a particular unit of elite warriors? (scyldingas of course XD) (in this case, the AAR ends when the last of the men in the group have died, and no retraining) 1st person
or the tales of the exploits of the kings? 1st person (kings eyes, when he dies, shifts to the new kings eyes.)
also, i am playing as Iotas, Eotenas, Jutes, whatever you wanna call em'
sorry for DP (duple post)
will be starting the campaign on Friday, because I have a 3 day weekend this week (US veterans day)
expect an official AAR thread by sunday!!!
also, can anybody give me any info on folk tales (the magical ones, with mythical items and the like)? i want to integrate them into my campaign (one of em being Sir Gawain and the Green Knight- the Green girdle(s) will be mentioned.)
Well, since you're playing a Germanic campaign it would make most sense to allude to things like the Finnsbergh Fragment (which is about Hengest) and Beowulf...
also, will wrie this in the "middle english" style Example
instead of "he was the bravest man in the kingdom." I will write "not a man in the kingdom was as brave as he."
this, IMO, improves the atmosphere a degree. any comments on this?
