Hi everyone. Thanks for taking the time to read this AAR. Please leave a comment and feedback if you can spare the time. It is much appreciated. I know my work is far from perfect, so constructive criticism is strongly encouraged so I can build upon what I am doing. If you enjoy what you've read, please subscribe to the thread, so you will receive notifications when I update it.
This AAR is written in the style of a biography. It follows the life of the Italian General Amadeo Vasari right from his birth in 1685 up to his death, whenever that turns out to be. Although I am following a campaign that I am fighting, there will be times that I will "lie" to you about goings on if I feel that it will add to the story. I am also fighting the campaign in order to make an interesting story, so some of the decisions made may well not be the best option, or what I would necessarily do if I was playing to win.
I am using DMUC 6.0 enforced, and am playing a custom campaign as the Papal States. I have also installed POM's Italian States Mod, which adds in new units and beautiful skins for the Italian factions, as well as AUM. If you like the look of the units in the screenshots, then please rep their creators for their excellent work.
Some screenshots will also be from Rome Total War, but not many.
Most updates will include several pictures, especially once the battles start. Please don't be put off by the small number in the first chapter.
So thanks again for reading, I hope you enjoy.
