Events[edit | edit source]


Msg event.pngThe Pirates of Penzance

Since we gained autonomy from the Kingdom of England, the profession of privateering has become a massive source of income for people living in our [Root.GovernmentName]. Penzance has become a port of great fortune for smugglers and privateers alike, and our exploits in both the North Sea and the English Channel have become legendary and nobody dare sail those seas without an escort for fear of the wrath of the Cornish.

However, the influence of these men of low character within our nation is becoming quite worrying, and recently a group of powerful captains have marched on [Root.Capital.GetCapitalName] with their crew and are threatening to overthrow the [Root.Monarch.GetTitle] and take control of the [Root.GetAdjective] [Root.GovernmentName].

This event happens only once during a campaign.

Msg event.pngA Model Admiral

A promising captain arrived in Penzance not long ago, and immediately began proudly boasting of his exploits across the world. He claims to be not just a great admiral, but the very model of a modern major general. Furthermore, he claims that his travels have given him an intricate knowledge of all subjects from vegetation and animal husbandry to geology. Not only that, but he has met with Kings and Emperors, and has personally partaken in every major battle from the last hundred years. He also claims to be an expert in mathematics, though we’re unsure of what benefit that holds to a privateer. Many doubt the legitimacy of his claims, but he said it in such a charming way we can’t help but be enraptured by this peculiar man.

This event happens only once during a campaign.
