Curse the Exam Season for interfering with more important matters and issues...
Thanks for your nice review Boustrophedon
You are quite right about agents being limited characters, which as stated is the very reason I choose them. It is quite possible that I will one day come to regret this if I want to give one of them a greater role. But professions are not set in stone...one day a protagonist may wish to pursue another career.
When it comes to empire-building I should inform that I have increased the movement of agents in order to get Runar and Halvdan through the world in a somewhat reasonable time. So my campaign has not developed that much at all even if the characters have moved a great distance. Later in the story (after the chapters the review is based on), some hints of the comings and goings of the rest of the kingdom begin to appear.
Interesting. I would very much like you to elaborate this in the Home to Midgard thread. What should I do to keep the readers interest and how should the tale be improved? My AAR is lacking in reader suggestions about what people would want more of.I'm only slightly worried that the quality of the subtle humour will diminish in time. So far the author has managed to keep things lofty and silly but like any story it needs a decent plot to keep readers interested.

I'm very excited about this 27th Issue being published despite exams and personal issues I've managed to produce quite some content for this issue of the CQ but as the saying goes: quality over quantity I hope the AARtists and readers will offer some critique on my reviews or the article.
Congratulations to the rest of the very talented CQ team and our editor Juvenal naturally who keeps us all in line
You've updated the AAR with many new chapters since the review so my work is already a bit outdated, despite being only just published hehe. I will post some thoughts on your AAR in the thread after this weekend, but I suspect your loyal readers will have offered some thoughts of their own as well
Lastly I wish to thank la coup est pleine for his honest and clear-cut review of my BAARC entry. His criticisms were very accurate and my next entry will be much better because of it!
Cheers fellas and enjoy this issue!
Very strong issue and plenty of great content! Congratulations to Juvenal for herding all these material together, Boustrophedon for carrying most of the weight, and the rest of the writers for dong their own magic!
Special thanks for your help around the BAARC! Hopefully many would participate in it in the future too.

amazing story's ive read them all. nice pictures to, though ive seen better ones.
Scribo ergo sum.
Looks nice, I am looking for time to read it completely, but for now, thanks for calling my TotW entry "a nice little piece", I enjoyed writing it and I am looking for inspiration for this week's TotW!
I wish I could be back here writing at the CQ - you've all put out a terrific issue, thanks to all but especially boustrophedon and juvenal! A brilliant reviewer (and flattering... 'a famous aar writer' indeed, makes me shamed i'm not able to work on blood of zeus right now!) and an editor without whom the CQ would have whithered and died, and as always, with a turn of phrase which never ceases to amuse and impress

That was a pleasure to be part of this issue.
I hope that reviewing each of the BAARC entry is going to motivate writers as much as us reviewers.
Then, well done each reviewer, and especially Boustrophedon. We have a heroe.
So many articles I loved that I won't give each of them a special shout. Eh eh...
