Msg event.pngSejm Supports $HEIR$ $HEIR_DYNASTY$

The Sejm stood united today in their support for $HEIR$ $HEIR_DYNASTY$, who despite $HEIR_ADJ$ foreign roots is viewed as a worthy successor to the throne of $COUNTRY$. This will strengthen his chance to assume power, should our current $MONARCHTITLE$ pass away.

Msg event.pngSejm Opposes $HEIR$ $HEIR_DYNASTY$

A powerful faction within the Sejm has made clear their displeasure and dislike for $HEIR$ $HEIR_DYNASTY$, whom they view as a foreigner that has no understanding of the country $HEIR_S_PRONOUN$ wishes to rule. Their campaign has weakened $HEIR_ADJ$ chance to assume power, should our current $MONARCHTITLE$ pass away.

Msg event.pngBribing the Sejm

Winning an election is often a matter of knowing what palms to grease. A member of our dynasty is currently the leading candidate to succeed to the throne in a foreign nation, and several powerful nobles from that nation have made it clear that they are willing to further shore up his position if our nation proves to be 'as generous as it is great'.

Msg event.pngPlot Against $HEIR$ $HEIR_DYNASTY$

A certain faction within the Sejm have made no secret of their dislike for $HEIR$ $HEIR_DYNASTY$, and now your spymaster has uncovered that they are plotting the assassination of $HEIR_ADJ$. If they are allowed to make the attempt, there is a considerable risk that we will be blamed, but arresting them would upset their friends in the Sejm. How should we proceed?

Msg event.pngSuspicious Accident

Our candidate for the throne of $FROM$ has passed away in what appears to be a hunting accident. Though we suspect the accident was in fact a cunning assassination carried out by backers of a different candidate, we have no proof and all our hard work to place our dynasty on the $FROM_ADJ$ throne is undone.

Msg event.pngThe Blood of [Root.Monarch.Dynasty.GetName] Unites

Although [Root.GetName] is sometimes weakened by the external influence on our politics, electing a monarch from another nation has created a bond of trust and allowed for unique diplomatic opportunities. [Root.Monarch.GetName] has made excellent use of [Root.Monarch.GetHerHis] family's influence abroad and strengthened ties to the place our [Root.Monarch.GetTitle] once called home.

Although [Root.Monarch.GetSheHe] is our [Root.Monarch.GetTitle] first and foremost, [Root.Monarch.GetName] still has the right to some titles in the land from which [Root.Monarch.GetSheHe] hails. While foreigners might have supported [Root.Monarch.GetHerHis] ascent to the throne with hopes of ruling over us, having a rightful claim on a title in their lands may well give us a chance to do the reverse...

Msg event.pngSejm Forces Abdication

The nobles have not taken kindly to this and are considering forcing the [Root.Monarch.GetTitle] to abdicate in favor of the heir they have already chosen for the throne.

Msg event.pngThe [Root.Religion.GetName] Convert

The world is seeing turbulent religious change. A monarch shifting religious allegiance can be seen as a powerful trend, and when [Root.Monarch.GetName] turned to the [Root.Religion.GetName] faith on ascending to the throne, many took note. If the [Root.Monarch.GetTitle] could convert, what is stopping the other unenlightened from seeing the truth? Nothing, its supporters argue. The pressure on everyone, noble or commoner, who has not yet fallen into line is now higher than ever.

Msg event.pngLike Home

Being of [Root.Culture.GetName] birth, [Root.Owner.Monarch.GetName] often visits [Root.GetName]. Not only does the province serve as a reminder to the [Root.Owner.Monarch.GetTitle] of [Root.Owner.Monarch.GetHerHis] past, but the people there who normally feel somewhat estranged from their [Root.Owner.GetAdjective] rulers are glad to see that the Sejm approved a monarch who speaks their language. A recent visit has considerably improved the locals' impression of the administration.

Msg event.pngLoyalties of [Root.Monarch.GetName] and [Root.Heir.GetName]

Electing monarchs from different nations allows us, to some extent, to avoid a dynasty taking control over [Root.GetName] entirely, but also causes foreign nobles to sometimes doubt our loyalty. The [Root.Monarch.Dynasty.GetName] family to which our current [Root.Monarch.GetTitle] belongs has noticed that the increased support in the Sejm for [Root.Heir.GetName] of the [Root.Heir.Dynasty.GetName] dynasty. Although they hopefully understand that they can't rule our nation forever, they are beginning to ask questions about how this will affect future cooperation between us.

Msg event.png[From.GetAdjective] Sejm Shifts Allegiance

After a noble of the [Root.Monarch.Dynasty.GetName] family ascended to the [From.GetAdjective] throne, we were hoping to see a long-time rule there by our dynasty. However, the Sejm's support of another foreign heir has strained the relationship between our nations. When pressured, [From.GetName] has made it clear that the times are changing, and that they are trying to avoid another monarch from [Root.GetName].

[From.Heir.GetName], already having popular support in the Sejm, is now considered their primary candidate for escaping the dynasty's grip and avoiding an absolutist monarch.

Msg event.pngGolden Liberty

Ruling in [Root.GetName] is not like ruling in other nations. Dictating the nation's goals is difficult without approval from nobles, sometimes impossible. To a foreign monarch, this may seem disappointing and frustrating, but this cornerstone of [Root.GetAdjective] politics is highly valued in its homeland and is, in fact, what [Root.Monarch.GetName] has to thank for coming into power in the first place. Embracing these ideas might make the [Root.Monarch.GetTitle] seem weak internationally, but would aid in integrating better and gaining supporters in the Sejm.

Msg event.png[Root.Monarch.Dynasty.GetName] Family Gains Claim on [Root.GetAdjective] Throne

Recent power shifts among the foreign relatives of [Root.Monarch.GetName] and clashing inheritance laws have led to an unfortunate situation with the house of [Root.Monarch.Dynasty.GetName]. A member of the dynasty has now been suggested to be the rightful ruler of not only [Root.Monarch.GetName]'s homeland, but ours as well.

Whether or not this claim will be pushed through war or is merely used to bolster the foreign monarch's status for a domestic power struggle remains to be seen. Regardless, the possibility of being forced into a union in this manner is ominous.

Msg event.png[Root.Monarch.GetName] Gains Claim on [From.GetAdjective] Throne

Our support for [From.Monarch.GetName], our candidate for the [From.GetAdjective] throne, has yielded us many diplomatic advantages since [From.Monarch.GetSheHe] was elected. Recently, however, it has been suggested that the [Root.Monarch.Dynasty.GetName] family's claims on [From.GetName] reaches beyond this single individual and that [Root.Monarch.GetName] should in fact be considered the ruler of both [Root.GetName] and [From.GetName].

[From.Monarch.GetName] considers [From.Monarch.GetHerselfHimself] sovereign, of course, but [Root.Monarch.GetName] outranks [From.Monarch.GetHerHim] in the dynasty. Surely a [From.Monarch.GetTitle]'s first loyalty must be to family, must it not?
