Msg event.pngRise of the Maroserana

We do not know exactly who they are or where they came from. A new ruling class has emerged and begun to transform [Root.GetAdjective] society. Known as the Maroserana, they may have arrived from the mainland, but local [Root.Culture.GetName] practices and religion are integral to how they maintain power. By venerating rulers of the past and having the [Root.Monarch.GetTitle] appoint mediums communicating with ancestors, they tie their own reign to the entire history of [Root.GetName]. Combined with more formalized contact with important partners, craftsmen and scientists throughout the nation, the new practices introduced by the Maroserana are likely to benefit our nation.

Msg event.pngTranscribe the Ibonia

Of the many stories told among our people, the Ibonia is one of the most widespread. Describing the life of the hero Iboniamasiboniamanoro and his adventures to save his betrothed Iampelasoamananoro, many different versions of it are told throughout [Root.GetName].

While we take pride in the way these stories have been retold throughout the ages, the Ibonia is largely unknown abroad. To spread our stories over the world, we will have to put them into writing. However, this will inevitably force us to select a definite version, most likely the one retold in [Root.Capital.GetName]. Those who grew up with other variants of the story may lose faith in [Root.Monarch.GetName]. Is it worth the risk?

Msg event.pngSoldiers Break Fady

Fady, a concept of social and religious taboo, restrict behavior in Malagasy society and is often difficult for outsiders to grasp. Our troops in Malagasy lands have sometimes found themselves ostracized by locals due to their inability to follow these rules, but has avoided causing serious offense. Recently, however, some of them accidentally set up a camp in an area declared to be fady to even enter without being properly prepared.

Unlike previous incidents, locals have been seriously concerned about this contravention and taken the matter to a higher instance, making this a diplomatic incident. How should we handle this situation?

Msg event.png[From.GetAdjective] Visitors Break Fady

The social rules and taboos we call fady are important across [Root.GetName], but many of them are defined locally. Our administration accommodates this and in fact, respecting and allowing these local variations is part of the policy making communities loyal to the [Root.Monarch.GetTitle].

Some of the soldiers from [From.GetName] crossing our country have displayed a much more careless behavior and seriously broken local fady. What is worse, they have refused to apologize and hypocritically called our customs superstitious, while maintaining social and religious rules themselves which they seem to have no such reservations about. This is nothing short of an insult against our people.

Msg event.pngLukasa

To maintain our history and knowledge, the wise artisans of [Root.GetName] have created lukasa, memory boards, to chronicle everything from genealogies to maps. A complex system of carvings and beads on the boards serves as a mnemonic, helping historians to recall and recite the past.

$ARTIST$ has grown particularly adept in the art of creating the lukasa, and this opportunity to store knowledge for the future must be seized before this brilliant artist leaves our employ. What should we immortalize?

Msg event.pngExpand the Mbudye

The power of the [Root.Monarch.GetTitle] has always been balanced by the influence of the Mbudye, a council of men and women of spiritual and historical knowledge. Some of the most influential elders in the council have recently passed away, leaving [Root.Monarch.GetName] with less guidance than the [Root.Monarch.GetTitle] has usually enjoyed.

Fortunately, many younger promising candidates are prepared to step in, having proved themselves in the art of reading memory boards and understanding the old traditions and stories. Should we allow them to quickly ascend to join the Mbudye to retain the council's position of influence?

Msg event.pngMbudye Clashes with [Root.Monarch.GetTitle]

Since we decided to expand the Mbudye council, some decisions have been met with opposition. It seems the new members brought with them new interpretations of our history and laws, which has led to the cooperation between the [Root.Monarch.GetTitle] and the council becoming strained and [Root.Monarch.GetName]'s wisdom being called into question.

The council's approval is crucial to how [Root.GetName] is ruled, and a [Root.Monarch.GetTitle] choosing to ignore their advice would significantly hurt [Root.Monarch.GetHerHis] credibility. How should we resolve this conflict?

Msg event.pngGenerational Conflict in Mbudye

Our decision to make some relatively young additions to the Mbudye, the governing council, has led to conflicts between members. The new councilors, although inquisitive and eager to learn at first, have now begun to argue about how to read the memory boards and questioning details of important pieces of information recalled by the oldest members.

Although it's possible that the old generation is going senile, the insolence displayed by the newcomers suggesting this is staggering. Should the [Root.Monarch.GetTitle] silence them or heed their advice?

Msg event.pngAntonio Fernandes

A man has come from the coast. He calls himself a Portuguese exile, a "degregado." He has a gift for languages, and says he has been working as a translator at one of the settlements on the coast that we do trade with. Now he wishes to explore the interior, and discover the source of the gold trade along the coast.
We have no reason to distrust this man, but the greedy Portuguese traders are another matter.

Msg event.pngIncreased Trade with India

When the Europeans first settled along the coast, they seemed to set off into the unknown as often as they could. Now however, ships have started returning as well. They bring spices and fabrics we can trade for, and the Europeans are more than eager for our gold and ivory. This way the Europeans have given us a much more efficient ways of trading with the distant lands of India.

To an outsider it looks like whispers behind their back, strange rituals at night, and esoteric initiation ceremonies. To us, it is the natural spread of knowledge, understanding and history.

This will guide them through their lives, and form a bond with societies in other villages through their rituals.

Msg event.pngThe Batembuzi of Kitara

Long before we ruled this land, almost from the beginning of the world, the ancient Empire of Kitara stretched across all the Great Lakes, under the reign of the Batembuzi. The Batembuzi dynasty was founded by none other than Ruhanga, the creator, and his descendants held divine powers. Many kingdoms have claimed to carry the heritage of ancient Kitara, and if we follow the lineage of [Root.Monarch.GetTitle] [Root.Monarch.GetName] back far enough, we might also find a drop of that divine blood.
