If the progress reaches 100%, the disaster will start with the following event
Crisis of the Ming Dynasty
Great Ming faces a terrible crisis. The [Root.Monarch.Dynasty.GetName] family have failed to rule in accordance with the Mandate of Heaven, and have lost the blessings and good fame that the Mandate affords. Mismanagement and strife are rampant in China and discontent is spreading rapidly among the people; already great masses have risen in revolt. We must think of our ancestors and strive to cultivate virtue, for the great Mandate is not easy to keep.
Is triggered only by
the start of the ‘Crisis of the Ming Dynasty’ disaster.
Peasants (size 3) rise in revolt in 5 random stated provinces in the China subcontinent
Over the course of our nation’s collapse we have lost most of our ports and thus control over what remains of our navy. Claiming to be a Ming loyalist, a general known as Koxinga has commandeered several vessels and fled to Taiwan. The Ming government has historically taken little interest in the island, seeing it as a largely irrelevant backwater. Koxinga however sees potential in the island, and aims to use it as a base from which to eventually retake the mainland.
Build land units in the capital to force limit: 60% infantry, 30% cavalry, 10% artillery
Build naval units in a random owned province with a port to force limit: 3 parts heavy ships, 3 parts light ships, 2 parts transports
Li Zicheng's Rebellion and the Shun Dynasty
We have lost control over the north. The peasant warlord Li Zicheng has consolidated a large host of rebels and bandits under his command and seized control of an alarmingly large portion of the Empire. Li has declared himself Emperor and laid claim to the Mandate of Heaven. In a proclamation from the capital, Li announces the beginning of the Shun dynasty and pledges to restore traditional rituals and rule in accordance with Heaven.
Has at least 300 total development, including non-tributary subjects
Is not a subject nation
Is not allied to this country
If no country meeting the above conditions exists, Manchu gets the event instead if it's independent or a tributary and not allied to this country.
Intervention in the Crisis of the [From.GetAdjective] Dynasty
The [From.GetAdjective] Emperor has lost control of the north. The peasant warlord Li Zicheng has gathered a large host of rebels and bandits under his command and seized control of [CSH.Capital.GetCapitalName], proclaiming himself Emperor of China. This moment of [From.GetAdjective] weakness presents an ideal opportunity for us to seize control of northern China and, if all goes well - and if we see fit to exercise it - set the stage for our own claim to the Mandate of Heaven.
It has always been difficult to rule the disparate peoples of the south-western provinces, but never more so than in this time of crisis. The rebels have begun to consolidate under the warlord [CDL.Monarch.GetName], who demands that the [Root.GetAdjective] state recognize him as Protector of Yunnan. We risk losing control of the region entirely if we do not take drastic action.

Losing Control of the South
South China is in chaos. Swarms of rebels and bandits ravage the countryside and even control several cities of vital importance to the state. As the [Root.GetAdjective] state has failed to deal with this crisis, local governors have taken matters into their own hands. They have raised armies to combat the rebels, but they are refusing to take orders from our generals. Our messengers report that they intend to continue to administer their feudatory states even after the crisis is over. Allowing them to rule so autonomously will set a dangerous precedent, but we are hardly in a position to challenge these lords.
The weight that no event is triggered is 1000 and for this event it is 100.
Chinese Peasants Revolt in [ming_disaster_rebel_province.GetAreaName]
The peasants of [ming_disaster_rebel_province.GetAreaName] have risen up in revolt following decades of mismanagement and neglect from the [Root.GetAdjective] state. If their rebellion spreads too far it could spark an even greater crisis, so we must either address their concerns immediately or promptly face them in battle.
Any owned province:
Is part of a state
Is in the China subcontinent
Local autonomy is less than 75%
Is triggered only by
the monthly pulse of the ‘Crisis of the Ming Dynasty’ disaster.
Save one province meeting the trigger criteria as the event target
This rebellion will be crushed.
Peasants (size 3) rise in revolt in the event target
Give in to their demands.
All owned provinces in the area of the event target gain 50% local autonomy
If the following conditions are true, the disaster will end:
if Mandate of Heaven is active, at least one of:
has at least 75 mandate.
is not the Emperor of China
if Mandate of Heaven is not active:
has 3 stability.
is not bankrupt.
has less than 5 loans.
has less than 5 corruption.
does not own provinces controlled by rebels.
does not have rebels.
then it loses the above-mentioned effects and one of the following events is triggered:
The Mandate Restored
We have regained the confidence of the people; there are none left who doubt our right to hold the Mandate of Heaven. We must reflect on the misdeeds that led us into crisis and model ourselves on the Sage Kings of old to avoid repeating our mistakes.
Is triggered only by
the end of the ‘Crisis of the Ming Dynasty’ disaster while still being the Emperor of China.
None shall question us again.
Gain 1 stability
The Crisis Abates
With the loss of the Mandate of Heaven to [emperor_of_china.GetUsableName], part of the pressure on our dynasty has abated. Even though many challenges await us in future, we may leave the poisoned chalice of governing the Celestial Empire to the [emperor_of_china.GetAdjective] [emperor_of_china.Monarch.GetTitle].
Is triggered only by
the end of the ‘Crisis of the Ming Dynasty’ disaster while not being the Emperor of China.
The Ming dynasty is in crisis. The state struggles to control even its own territory, with warlords raising armies and vying for power across China. We must ask ourselves whether such a tumultuous state truly hold the Mandate of Heaven, and therefore whether [Root.GetName] ought to reconsider its tributary relationship with the Ming.
