You might be thinking of AAR.
I do often suggest an AAR which can be book-published in a form where the left pages are the game in story form, and the right pages are the actual game actions.

Im not sure how a schizo guide would be done. Something like
"How to play Abyssia vs Jotunheim and How to play Jotunheim vs Abyssia" in the same Guide? That might be interesting. A comparison of how to use the heat aura and cold aura effectively, the different summons that work best with each, formations, support spells, etc.
This game is NOT suitable for students, interns, apprentices, or anyone else who is expected to pass tests on a regular basis. Do not think about strategies while operating heavy machinery. Before beginning this game make arrangements for someone to check on you daily. If you find that your game has continued for more than 36 hours straight then you should consult a physician immediately (Do NOT show him the game!)
