Prester John event chain[edit]

id

Msg event.pngPêro da Covilhã

A strange man has come onto our shores, but not by the Red Sea route by which foreigners usually travel to us. He claims he's part of a voyage from beyond the Cape, a voyage that, to our knowledge, has never been attempted before. He brings greetings from fellow Christian monarchs, though his prayer is unlike that which we have seen before. How should we treat this man?

Msg event.pngPrester John?

The Negus of Ethiopia, who may or may not be the legendary Prester John, has apparently fallen on hard times and is pleading with us to help him restore his lands. He has sent an ambassador named Mateus. Mateus is a Christian, albeit of a kind we have never seen before, and begs us to restore his master's rightful dominions, but Mamluk power is still threatening and it seems to be a big risk for questionable gain. Should we aid Mateus?

Msg event.pngThe fate of the Egyptian Copts

Word has reached us from Egypt that the Mameluk sultan is persecuting the Copts in his lands. As a fellow kingdom under the Patriarchate of Alexandria it is our duty to act. The fact that the patriarch himself is in Mameluk hands complicates things somewhat however, a direct attack might place the foundation of our church at risk.

Msg event.pngA letter arrives from Ethiopia - Mamluks notification

We have received a letter from the Ethiopian Emperor today. The message is a detailed account of the many perceived misdeeds of our Sultanate against the Copts that reside within our borders.
There is likely little reason for concern, however, as the patriarch of both the Egyptian and Ethiopian Copts is our hostage. It seems very unlikely that an Ethiopian monarch would risk the safety of his patriarch over a matter such as this.

Msg event.pngCentralization reforms of Zara Yakob

Under the care of the Solomonic dynasty Ethiopia has grown from a kingdom into a great empire. However the diverse regions under our rule lack a common language, religion or administrative system.
Zara Yakob, the most able ruler Ethiopia has seen in a long time, has prepared a number of reforms that might go a long way towards creating a more unified state.

Msg event.pngThe Itinerant Capital

In order to control the diverse Ethiopian empire the Solomonids have never established a permanent capital. Instead the royal court travels from chief to chief every few months.
While it is hard to establish an administrative continuity under such circumstances the traveling court does have its benefits. The frequent visits of the royal courts in all corners of the Empire are contributing to the growth of a common elite culture in our lands.

$MONARCH$ finds himself spending more and more time by the monasteries at lake Tana. Due to this continued patronage of the king a small market town has begun to spring up in the area and some have started to name the city as a secondary capital of our kingdom.
This idea has grown on $MONARCH$ who believes a permanent capital here might allow us to start a new spiritual and architectural legacy.

Msg event.pngThe Monastic Orders

One of the greatest strengths of the Ethiopian church is the great number of successful monasteries that dot the landscape of our state. The Monastic orders have contributed to the success of our state by founding new monasteries in newly conquered areas and by spreading the word of the true faith there. The monasteries of Ethiopia are also the source of the education of the Ethiopian clergy, its nobility and its administrators and as such have contributed greatly to the revitalization of the Ethiopian church in the years past.
The other side of this coin, however, is that the monasteries and the orders that run them have grown both rich and autonomous.

Msg event.pngIndependence from the Patriarchate

The dependency of the Ethiopian church on the Patriarchate of Alexandria has always been a liability for our country. Perhaps there was once a practical need of bishops, clergy and spiritual guidance from abroad. The expansion of the Ethiopian church over the last two centuries, however, means that our kingdom is now already training its own clergymen and there is a strong religious infrastructure in the form of churches and monasteries throughout or lands.
With the Egyptian Patriarchate held hostage by Muslim conquerors we often have to wait a long time between the death of one bishop and the appointment of the next. It would be far more efficient to appoint our religious leadership from the ranks of our own clergy.

Msg event.pngAmba Geshen - The Mountain of Kings

Once, our great kingdom was plagued by crisis and civil strife upon every succession. In order to deal with this problem one of the first of the Solomonic kings therefore set up the institution of Mount Geshen. Ever since that day all royal princes except the direct heir of the king are kept isolated from the outside world on the slopes of Mount Geshen. The state ensures that these potential kings lack for nothing and this time of isolation may be used for study and contemplation by the princes. In order to protect the princes from the outside world, and in order to protect the kingdom from the claims of the princes, the mountain is kept under close guard.
This custom has served us well over the years and the kingdom has become much more stable than it once was. Still some feel that keeping all of our royal heirs in one place is quite risky.
Today we find ourselves with an aging king and no heir to succeed, it is precisely in situations like these that the mountain might come in handy.

Three Emperors of Ethiopia has followed her guidance, and although Eleni never herself had any children by Emperor Zara Yaqob, his son by another wife loved her, called her mother and gave her the title of Queen Mother. Extensive estates has made her comfortably rich, though she seldom spends much money. A righteous woman with a strong faith, Eleni is often bustling around in the kitchen preparing food for the royal family and seeks the comfort of books in her spare time. Her great understanding of the affairs of state and her knowledge of the law has often been praised, and it is thanks to those two qualities that $COUNTRY$ flourished when she was an advisor to the crown. It was she who made sure we had allies when enemies threatened our land, by sending Mateus - Matthew the Armenian - as ambassador to friendlier nations. The palace coup which led to the deposition and execution of the former Emperor was led by Eleni, so it would be wise to consider her influence at court as a great power few of us possess.

Msg event.pngMentewab

The former Empress of $COUNTRY$ and consort of Emperor Bakaffa has suggested that she will co-rule our country together with her grandson Iyoas until he comes of age. Berhan Mogasa or 'Glorifier of Light', as Mentewab is also called, is descended from emperors who reigned two centuries earlier and has already co-ruled once before. This has led to conflict between her and her son's widow Wubit who wishes to preside at her son's court. Mentewab has summoned her Qwaran relatives and their forces for support, while Wubit has summoned her Oromo relatives and their considerable forces. We have already seen what Mentewab has done for our country, the buildings she has built such as the castle, the large banqueting hall and a church dedicated to the Virgin Mary. She possess a great deal of influence at court and has shown greater administrative and diplomatic skill than her son's widow.
