THE BASTARD SON OF HANNIBAL BARCA- A CARTHAGINIAN POLITICAL AAR
Pasture of Slaughter: HatG VH Rome AAR
A big welcome to all the new guys that have found their way here.
My personal picks for must read AARs would be Primus Inter Pares by Radzeer and Pagan Vengeance by Skantarios - very different in style but special in their own ways.
Much thanks to those who mentioned my thing... here's something else for anyone who's interested.

Shameless self advertising their mate.
I'll also recommend Restoring Rome (M2TW), a great AAR to read.
God, I really need to get Shogun 2, don't I. Reading Robins AAR just makes me want to play it.
I would recommend it, I think it is the best of the "new" TW-games (Empire, Nap etc.) - I never really got into FotS but I enjoyed the RotS expansion as well.
I have always dwelt on the periphery of this area, as though a wallflower watching the bigger boys and girls.
Now, I'd really like to get involved; write some stories, contribute more fully, create some artwork and some wider literary projects. In short, contribute more readily to a forum that has given me so much pleasure for such a long time.
I hope to start soon!
Welcome Stivaror Rogn and I hope to be reading some of your work soon!

Well, where to begin...
Welcome all the new folks, good to have you here, and I'm sure we'll all soon be enjoying the fruits of your labours.
Well done to my replacement, F0ma, long may she reign!
And I think that the idea of the '100 AARs' is not actually a bad idea at all, in fact I would recommend creating something like that.
I love all of the TW franchise (except for that one game...Rome something, something), but must say- as I always do -that anything can be made into an AAR if the writer has the will to try and the imagination to see it through.
Speaking for myself, I promise that when I return to my beloved England I shall do my utmost to complete those AARs I really need to and get on with two I've been meaning to do for a while now, one in ETW and one in STW: FoTS.
Got to get back to the CW section now and do some reading, and some writing. Cheerio for now!
Also the TWC Olympics are underway, if any of y'all missed the announcement. Although there's a screenshot contest, it doesn't look like they've made allowances for us writing folk. Still, you're all welcome to come and school me at chess

Definitely an idea that has potential as well. It all depends on how we would go about it; these things can get quite unwieldy the bigger they get though, which is something we would have to take into consideration. It also means people will have had to have read 50+ AARs, which might be a tall order.
Swords of the Sea: 1066 has come and gone, the Danelaw torn down and a new kingdom built in the image of its Norman rulers. But with time, wounds heal and what is broken can be reforged. The Danes have returned with steel, and seek to reclaim what is theirs.
Winter War: Finland, 1939. The Soviet war machine has begun its indomitable advance from the east. Of all its neighbours, only Finland stands alone in defiance. Conscript Anton Bezrukov prepares for a quick victory, but the reality is far bloodier...
Congrats GR on the bold and blue.
Welcome as well Mr Rogn, it would be easier to suggest AARs for the newer games because there are less of them, looking into RTW and M2TW makes it a lot harder - although there are some classics that I'm sure we can all agree on.
I'd be honoured if people could stick their heads into my "Forlorn" project and give me some pointers. At the moment, it's a poster and a prologue, but expect the narrative to expand in the coming days. If people could follow it and contribute critique, that would be phenomenal.
EDIT: THE LINK TO THE PROJECT IS IN THE PIC, JUST CLICK AND AWAY YOU GO!
You should consider posting in the "Advertising Board" http://www.twcenter.net/forums/showt...latest-updates a lot of people (myself included) follow the thread specifically for updates to stories, so would notice it for sure.
