  4. Re: Derc Plays Through World History (Current: Napoleon - Napoleon's Campaigns)

    Ah, that's how to take Cyprus without being intercepted by Nelson's fleet! A bold and effective move (I'll use your tip, the next time I play the Egypt Campaign). The references to real history and...

    Cool idea for an AAR! It looks like the high quality of your troops and your smart tactics work well, despite the challenges in the campaign. You anticipated my reaction to the bridge battle, I see...

  9. Re: Northern Dúnedain- Divide and Conquer Version 4.5

    A turkey shoot for the Dúnedain archers, as you said, but the enemy had so many troops that it looked challenging despite your advantage of defending the bridge. The moment when things seem...
  10. Re: [IB SAI:AAR] The Last Pagan Emperor (UPDATED 26/06/2020)

    I like the way that you use fragments of ancient historical writing to show what's happening elsewhere in the Roman world. It sounds like Curbollo's victories were particularly important for ther...

    Re: Duchy of Austria- A Mini-AAR

    Cool AAR, it looks like the right combination of diplomacy and war were important here, and that Milan provided a nice challenge at the end.
  24. Re: Northern Dúnedain- Divide and Conquer Version 4.5

    It looks like Angmar is still a threat and, as Gondor weakens, the danger from Mordor is rising. As you said, that's a very unusual siege map at around 20:00. Good update!
  25. Re: Written in Sand (Nabataean AAR for EBII)[updated: June 15]

  32. Re: Northern Dúnedain- Divide and Conquer Version 4.5

    Cool Lord of the Rings Action, indeed! That's an interesting challenge in the battle against Angmar, where you're relying on cavalry and archers.
  33. Re: Derc Plays Through World History (Current: Napoleon - Napoleon's Campaigns)

    The weaving together of actual history with the story-telling of the campaign (including its odd quirks, such as having to auto-resolve at one point) is done with great élan. No doubt, this confident...
