After Action Report
An After Action Report is a written story usually including pictures based on some ones game play. They can be a comedy, or based like a history book. It could be a narrative involving a characters life in a game or it could be a straight forward tell-it-like-it-is Report.
After Action Report is the longer version of saying AAR.
Writing An AAR
A good writAAR must follow several rules for a good AAR:
- Firstly, pick a good nation to start with that will follow the theme your after. Be it comedy, pick Switzerland or Belgium. If you want a serious AAR, pick Germany or Britain. However, not all writAARs follow this
- Whilst picking the country, pick a theme. Chose from: Comedy, Game play, Narrative or History Book
- Start playing. The first update is usually only a pilot and should be quite short; it should introduce yourself and the country your playing, so don't finish the game just yet.
- Continue to play and update at regular intivals
