Crusader Kings II AARs

Crusader Kings II After Action ReportsCrusader Kings II explores one of the defining periods in world history in an experience crafted by the masters of Grand Strategy. Medieval Europe is brought to life in this epic game of knights, schemes, and thrones...
The Dark Ages might be drawing to a close, but Europe is still in turmoil. Petty lords vie against beleaguered kings who struggle to assert control over their fragmented realms. The Pope calls for a Crusade to protect the Christians in the Holy Land even as he refuses to relinquish control over the investiture of bishops - and their riches. Now is the time for greatness. Expand your demesne and secure the future of your dynasty. Fill your coffers, appoint vassals, root out traitors and heretics, introduce laws and interact with hundreds of nobles, each with their own agenda.

Slowly, but surely, Leon was gaining world status among Europeans. Alfonso had made it. If only people stopped invading each other.

Romania Ascendant, Chapter 2: Emperor Baldwin II, Part 1

Images: 11, author: inocomprendo, published: 2018-07-04

The second chapter of my Latin Empire AAR. As of writing, I've finished the CK2 leg of this campaign, and am beginning to mod the EU4 timeline.

In this chapter, we visit the first half of Emperor Baldwin II's reign. The Early Period of Latin rule is reaching an end, as relative stability is kept in the Empire.

Romania Ascendant, Chapter 1: Emperor Baldwin I "the Holy"

Images: 16, author: inocomprendo, published: 2018-06-08, edited: 2018-07-04

A Latin/Romanian/Roman Empire AAR I plan on taking at least through EU4. As of writing, I'm halfway through the CK2 timeframe and am catching up with writing the AAR.

Part 1 covers the rise of Romania under Emperor Baldwin I, through the tumultuous Early Period of conquest and rebellion. There's hardly any peace as Latin rule is established.
