Msg event.pngTrade Regulations


It seems the local officials of the Maritime Trade Office in province has taken it upon themselves to stimulate local commerce. A series of regulations issued have, while quite contrary to official policy, managed to provoke a local trade boom, with many local families getting into lucrative business while also attracting foreign merchants from overseas. The Grand Secretary is, however, imploring us to shut them down and retract the local stipulations as they are an affront to good governance and central power.

Msg event.pngIncident in port


As merchants from every corner of the world seek out the rich ports of the Middle Kingdom it is no wonder that some will at times encounter groups they consider to be their enemies. Local officials are puzzled by a number of of disturbances in port that seem related to two such competing groups trying to establish themselves in the same region.

Fearing that the unrest will spread our Commanderies are suggesting that we close down the ports and remove any foreigners in the area. The local offices of Maritime Trade, however, instead recommend that we fine both sides but allow them to continue purchasing our goods.

Msg event.pngDestitute Banknotes


As more and more unbacked notes are being issued by the Imperial government our Offices of Trade are fearing that inflation will soon be a growing problem in the Empire and in the provinces the people have started talking about this being a sign of us losing the Mandate of Heaven.

A representative arrived at court today proposing a scheme to reinvigorate the imperial economy by means of a temporary tax combined with reforms to the treasury.

Msg event.pngThe province Levy


Officials have undertaken a project to expand the levy in the province by improving and updating the local censuses. The reform promises to bring additional manpower to the Imperial Army, and improve the province's future troop recruitment. Confucian administrators, however, would argue that leaving the locals alone would likely increase the value of the province more long term.

Msg event.pngInspecting The Banners


The armies have amassed on the exercise field for the Grand Army Inspection of this year. Everywhere you look there is a forest of spears and swords, aiming in defiance at the heavens above. Several powerful generals and marshals are present. Over the past few years these men have done everything in their power to strengthen the army.

The safety of the Middle Kingdom depends on these troops, but it is not unheard of for a strong General to covet the Imperial throne himself...

Msg event.pngA Tibetan Monk


A traveler from Tibet has arrived in capital. He says that he has traveled from far-away Lhasa, and that he comes to spread the word of the Buddha. The Temple faction opposes this request, preferring instead the traditional teachings of Confucius as the sole font of spiritual guidance for our people. While there is a case to be made for the Temple Faction's position, overly heavy-handed treatment of Buddhism will destabilize our country.

Msg event.pngThe Examinations of this year


Pupils and Examinees have outperformed themselves and most everyone else at this year's Imperial Examination. The successes at the examinations promises good things for the secretariat, and for the empire at large. In fact it has been suggested that given the excellent results the official quota for how many can pass is on the low side. The Grand Secretary has approached the Emperor asking for a second round of out-takes to allow more of this gifted generation to join the cadres.

Msg event.pngThe Southern Elites


For centuries the southern Empire has been richer and more populous than the north. It is in the south that many of the richest and most influential families have their roots, and it is in the south that the vast majority of the highest scoring in the Imperial Examinations are selected.

Ruler worries that the southern families have an undue influence due to the many southerners in the Palatial administration. In the past quotas have been used to ensure that some part of those who pass the examinations originate from the north. Such quotas would, however, risk to undermine our entire system of merit as the guiding principle.

Msg event.png'If people have enough, can the ruler have too little?'


Word has reached you that a truly exceptional essay has passed through the examination system in one of your provinces. It argues convincingly and in excellent literary style that it is folly to expect a country to be rich from increasing taxes. Our examiners describe this text as 'profoundly crafted' and there is no doubt that it will give rise to a new style for examination essays for years to come.

The meat of the essay itself, however, cannot be ignored. The argument that avoiding high taxes makes the people as a whole richer and therefore the empire itself richer is a classical wisdom it is easy to overlook.

Msg event.pngRise of Millenarianism


Our weakening grip over the empire and the increasingly popular notion that we are losing the Mandate of Heaven has given rise to a variety of Millenarian movements around the country.

What they do have in common, however, is the goal of disruption chaos and the overthrowing of our established and perceived oppressive rule.

Msg event.pngPortentous Solar Eclipse


You can only stare in awe as the glowing white of the sun disappears behind the black disc suspended in the sky, and the world turns to darkness despite it being mid day. A few minutes later the disc has passed by the sun, and light returns. You are shaken by the experience, but many of your subjects are absolutely terrified. Some whisper that the eclipse proves that Mandate of Heaven has passed from our dynasty. What should we make of this situation?

Msg event.pngDisloyal Officials


The Imperial Examination system is excellent for turning out well educated and thoroughly competent bureaucrats and officials, ready to face the various challenges of day to day rule and administration that the Empire of China possess.

That same education is, however, now making our administrators very weary of some of the measures we have been taking recently. Believing the ruling family to be acting without a heavenly Mandate has made many officials unwilling to comply with our demand. At times it would seem Imperial authority doesn't stretch further than one can see from the palace walls.

Msg event.pngThe Four Treasures of the Scholar's Studio


Use of brush, ink, inkstone and paper and the art of calligraphy is expected of every gentleman in high society. Mastering the cursive, xingshu, caoshu or zhuanshu forms, however, is a rare sign of brilliance. In our chancellery one advisor is known to be an expert calligraphist, producing great works for the glory of the Monarch and our dynasty.

Monarch has lately taken a great interest in this art, studying the work of Advisor in detail, impressed by the beauty and elegant work. It has therefore come as a great shock when a lesser official confessed that the allegory of the lauded works of have frequently been veiled criticism of Royal Power.

Msg event.pngJin Era Statuette


A rare statuette from the Jin era has been discovered during renovations of an old temple. The idea has crossed your mind that it might be clever to bestow the statuette upon a worthy subject to strengthen his loyalty to you, The Emperor. Loyalties will doubtlessly change on account of such an impressive gift delivered directly from the Emperor's own hand. Who shall we give it to?

Msg event.pngHonoring the Ancestors


The teachings of Confucius stress the importance of understanding and respecting the 'Five Relationships' that weave the web of society, and one of the most important relationships is that between father and son. Those who have gone before us deserve our thanksgiving, and it has been long enough since last we made an offering. Various courtiers have suggested sacrifices that your Majesty could perform. What seems most appropriate to present as an offering to honor the ancestors?

Msg event.pngBad Feng Shui


Feng Shui is a system of both aesthetics and 'magic' believed by many to control the flow of the primary energy, the 'Qi', by relying on the laws of Heaven and Earth which guide it. The system is applied to tombs, homes and building, to ensure that the energy that courses through them is optimal. One of the court's most respected diviners and interpreters of the ebb and flow of The Qi has recently discovered that a newly built Imperial Ceremony House reeks with negative Qi!

Msg event.pngCourt Bickering


One of your Marshals has been insulted by a high ranking official of the Grand Secretariat. Apparently the men have had a hard time getting along for quite some time, and the insult was probably not entirely unprovoked. Nevertheless, the matter has become a pivot point of factional politics at the court, and it might be wise if the Emperor himself gave some input on the issue.

Msg event.pngThe Gilded Pagoda


Wrapped in the reddish gold of a dying sun, and reflecting the blue of the heavens suspended above it, the old Gilded Pagoda has stood since the times of the Tang dynasty, or perhaps even longer still. The silence and darkness within the Pagoda is a stark contrast to the light and reflection outside of. Since Buddhism has become rare, the Pagoda has gone unused, and your courtiers have various suggestions as to what could be done with it.
