Thread: AAR Challenge - Sign-Up Thread

    Post AAR Challenge - Sign-Up Thread

    The time has come, people rejoice, the first AAR Challenge is upon us. The rules are as follows:

    Each participant will complete an AAR on a short campaign for the faction of their choice, or character of their choice.

    Any interested participants sign up here. This will be moved to the throne room when the competition starts good luck

    There is no definite start time as of yet, hopefully we can attract lots of interest

    I think it would be a better chalenge if you gave each contestant some screenies and some raw data to see what people made out of it.


    Cheers...

    Your point is noted, we shall see what everyone else thinks, hopefully not that.

    I wouldn't mind mAIOR's suggestion, since for the next week I might not have access to a computer that has RTW. It would also be kind of interesting to see what we could make of just sceenshots.

    The other suggestion is fine as well, both are appealing to me. I guess this is me signing up. =)

    Sure, I'll join. I don't mind the other idea, but just in case you go with the original plan, my video card should be in when the competition starts, so I should be able to post some nice screenshots.

    There should be breakthroughs this coming week, who is in? Also can a poll be added for
    a) Short campaign AAR
    b) AAR of a character
    c) A write up of a screenshot.

    The poll has been added. I've made the question along the same lines as what you requested, although it's not exact. Any problems drop me a PM

    I voted for 'Short Campaign AAR'. Can I propose that we do something different from the average short campaign? I am now playing a Greek campaign in Gaul with my capital at Massilia.

    The rules for this might be:
    --you are to abandon your starting provinces within ten turns
    --you are not allowed to retake your starting provinces within fifty/forty turns
    --for interesting campaigns, relocating to a region far away from initial region is recommended

    I find that this makes for a pretty interesting and challenging, if ahistorical short campaign. Aye/Nay?

    I say we play:

    Using ER Random Julii city script, and returning to that city.
    Or doing a Character AAR like i voted.

    ER is Epistolary Richard, a modder, and he created this mod where you start as the Julii with a random starting region every time. For example, you could start in Athens, or in Chersonesus, or in Cyrene, or Nepte or Halicarnassus...... Not sure what happens if you displace the region of an existing faction.

    Random Julii mod

    Though I'm not sure if it works for v1.3 and below, seeing as only v1.5 has the provincial campaign option, which pretty much rules me out as I am unable to update from v1.3.


    A character AAR sounds pretty cool too, though I have no idea how that works. Somebody explain please? =D

    A character AAR focuses on the actions, battles and life of one character rather than that of an entire faction.

    So is this thing still on? Activity in the Colosseum seems pretty lousy these few days, but I'd definitely join this.

    I suppose maybe Punicus would join too. It doesn't matter, more will join if we put it in our sigs, maybe.

    I just want to get started 'cos it's the weekend, and I can only play on weekends. =P

    I have a Broken Crescent battle where I brought all elephants against multiple Mongol stacks I've been wanting to write up, if that'd be appropriate.

    Yeah, definitely. So this is just going to be a standard short campaign AAR? And when is it starting?

    Post Re: AAR Sign-Up Thread

    After a few moments of re-considering, I'm going to move this thread the Throne Room - although I'm willing to allow sign-ups in the Colosseum, it's probably better that discussion on the game's set up and the suchlike goes over there

    If that's the case, then I guess I'll start writing it up. Does it matter if I have no screenshots, though? I want to do an AAR for a game I'm playing, but I have currently played some twenty years in it, and I didn't think I'd be doing an AAR whe I started, so I didn't get any screenshots.
