Msg event.pngCommedia dell'Arte Performances


Hear ye, hear ye! Let loose Pantalone, Harlequin, and all the other stock characters of the traditional Commedia dell'arte on your unsuspecting population, and watch as they are entertained by the antics and the shenanigans. A good piece of comedy can make anyone forget for a while that their everyday lives are wasted away laboring under the yokes of tyrannical rulers. Plus, it's fun!

Msg event.pngLiberté, Egalité, Fraternité


Like a mighty torch, bringing the light of reason into even the darkest corners of the old and new worlds, the Enlightenment is sweeping across the world. Supporting this movement will doubtlessly lead to advances in science and philosophy, but the movement's notions about human freedom and the unalienable rights of man may cause a bit of a rebellious fervor in our country.

Msg event.pngByzantine Refugees


My Lord, Byzantium has fallen to the Saracens. The last bastion of the Roman Empire, the City of Constantine, is now in Turkish hands. As Christendom reels from the shock, Byzantine refugees flock to the cities and courts of Europe, bringing with them old manuscripts of classical knowledge, tracts by Aristotle, Plato and Galen, and a thorough knowledge of both Latin and Greek. Inviting these refugees to $COUNTRY$ might provide an enormous boost to our own efforts in the fields of culture and science.

Msg event.pngCharter a Guild of St. Luke


Saint Luke, the patron saint of artists, often came to lend his name to artists guilds in Western Europe, the most famous, perhaps, in Antwerp. Chartering a guild here in $COUNTRY$ might be a tad on the expensive side, but the cultural benefit will be there for all to see. Developing the Guild's bureaucracy will also strengthen our native bureaucratic tradition.

Msg event.pngGolden Age of Dutch Painting


The Dutch Republic, recently Calvinist, recently independent, and with strong undercurrents of humanistic thought and philosophy, had in the late 16th century set the philosophical stage for a break with the established artistic traditions and ideals of the old Catholic Europe.

Msg event.pngThe Way of Tea


While tea had been grown in Japan at least since the 9th century, the more refined aesthetics of the Chanoyu, The Way of Tea, only developed fully during the early parts of the 15th century.

Msg event.pngThe South German Organ Tradition


The South German organ tradition was a school of German organ composers, whose work was largely inspired by earlier Italian traditions, learned by the Germans from studies under Italian masters.
