Feudalism events[edit]

Msg event.pngChallenging the Warrior Elites

Over time we have managed to strengthen the authority of the [Root.Monarch.GetTitle] over the provinces. This does mean that the authority of local strongmen and petty chiefs is now threatened. Normally such local forces can be handled with ease, but in [feudalism_province.GetName] the use of more direct force may be necessary to remind others of our right to rule.

Msg event.pngGrowing Influence of the Urban Elites

While they lack a formal voice in our government, the richer cities have many other ways to make their influence known. In some cases, cities can even band together to further increase their power over a province. The leaders of one such conglomeration in [urban_province.GetName] have recently approached us asking to formalize some of the ways in which they exert control. Allying with the cities would allow us to promote much more durable systems of government but we would likely lose the support of some of the local warrior groups we now rely on for military support.

Msg event.pngLack of Bureaucracy

Sometimes progress will be greater farther from the center of power where old elites are too entrenched to desire change. As new modes of government are becoming more commonplace in our country, locals in [feudalism_province.GetName] are getting increasingly irritated at the elites in [Root.Owner.Capital.GetCapitalName] who refuse to formalize any form of government institutions.

Renaissance events[edit]

id

Msg event.pngThe Renaissance!

Since the 14th century, the wealthy and powerful in the Italian City states have been patronizing artists and scholars willing to explore the old Roman and Greek societies of their forefathers. As a cultural movement the Renaissance already encompasses most of the region and has had a profound impact on literature, art, philosophy and music. Humanist scholars are also analyzing the society in which they live, comparing it to the ideals of the classical philosophers. At the turn of $YEAR$ Renaissance humanism has grown into a more mature movement, ready to permeate all aspects of society. A new ideal for rulers as well as those who are ruled is spreading as quickly as the early printers can distribute copies of these new ideas. A true Renaissance humanist is an expert on everything from politics and philosophy to art, textual analysis, music and architecture. The Renaissance is now ready to reshape the world to better fit the classical ideals.

Msg event.pngMirrors for Princes

[Root.Monarch.GetName] has come to take a great interest in the Renaissance, not only for the cultural and artistic merit but also the political and scientific breakthroughs being made in the Italian states. [Root.Heir.GetTitle] [Root.Heir.GetName] seems oblivious to such things, however, which worries our [Root.Monarch.GetTitle]. For generations now European princes have been able to further their education through the use of books on how to conduct yourself as a ruler. Renaissance thinkers have been quick to usurp this genre and a number of these 'Mirrors for Princes' now practically reek of the new ideas. We should consider making these books central to the education of [Root.Heir.GetName].

Colonialism events[edit]

Msg event.pngBirth of Colonialism

For non-Asian or non-Oceanian countries: The discovery of the New World has heralded a new era not only for the colonizers and the colonized, it has also led to the spread of materials and techniques as well as a realization of the vastness of the globe. As animals, crop types, silver and diseases spread across the Atlantic, the first steps have been taken towards a truly global economy. With foreign lands and people being mapped and documented, ideas as well as religious and philosophical debate are increasingly being colored by what we have found in overseas societies. Great minds feel the need to question what was once truth, and from [institution_origin.GetCapitalName] to Fatehpur Sikri, the nature of the world is now up for debate.

Msg event.pngBirth of Colonialism

Merchants are reporting an increased influx of goods that seem entirely alien to them. These exotic goods are brought by travelers who claim to have met strange men from afar. While it is hard to know what to make of such rumors, these men are convinced our world is now changing fundamentally and that these strangers are the bringers of bad fortune.

Msg event.pngColonial Charter?

For non-American countries: Our colonial governor has written to us imploring us to secure further investors for the growth of our future overseas empire. There are certainly interested parties in the [institution_province.GetCapitalName] financial sector who would be interested but given the high risk they would be expecting to be granted some far-going privileges. They also expect the crown to contribute with a substantial part of the needed funds.

Msg event.pngDiffusion of New World Crops

For European countries: With the discovery and colonization of the New World a number of new crops have been introduced in the European economy. Potato, corn and tomatoes have slowly begun to spread among the farmers of Europe, but old habits die hard and so far these new high yield crops have been spreading very slowly.


We could attempt to stimulate this process using the state coffers, but those who currently dominate the agricultural markets would likely feel threatened.

Msg event.pngSlave Traders

The numbers of [slaver_country.GetAdjective] merchants who seek out our markets have grown from a trickle to a steady stream. Their main interest seems to be in procuring slaves either directly or through purchasing trade goods we have that can be traded for slaves. So far this has made a few local chieftains very rich, which is a dangerous development as it both empowers these local potentates and impoverishes the surrounding settlements.


The slave traders of [Root.Capital.GetCapitalName] are asking that we create a more consistent framework and regulate the trade through royal monopolies. The [slaver_country.GetAdjective] traders themselves also seem interested in more formal and permanent arrangements.

The [From.GetAdjective] traders were delighted at our proposal to regulate the volatile slave trade market and the market in [Root.Capital.GetCapitalName] is already growing rapidly. Not everyone arriving in [Root.Capital.GetCapitalName] is a merchants, however: a trickle of scribes, missionaries and mercenaries have also begun to settle in our capital.

Printing Press events[edit]

Msg event.pngGrowth of the Printing Industry

The ability to mass-produce the written word would revolutionize the spread of information, and in many ways early modern society as a whole. Pioneered by Renaissance men such as Venetian Printer Aldus Manutius, the new art helped fuel the Renaissance by making the translated classics more widely available. Later the Reformation benefitted greatly from the ability to spread critical publications and translations of the Holy Scriptures.


Now that Printing has matured as a technique and spread throughout [institution_origin.GetContinentName], hundreds of thousands of copies of everything from religious and political pamphlets to scientific treatises and instructions on how to behave are circulating the continent. With print shops growing evermore commonplace, rulers have found it hard to contain the new technique, as the comparatively easy means of production makes it easy for censorship to be sidestepped by moving business across a border or even just changing the name on a title page.

Msg event.pngCirculation of Hostile Publications

When printing was a novelty it first attracted those who would create codices as great works of art or philanthropists who wanted to spread the knowledge of the classics in a more accessible format. Soon, however, others joined their ranks, less scrupulous men who would make a living slandering others. Ever since printing started to mature as a business, presses all over Europe have been available for demagogues to spin their webs of lies. Piles of pamphlets lie ready to be distributed to anyone who will believe them as we speak. In [institution_province.GetAreaName] in particular this otherwise so promising technology has been put to use as a means to spread vicious slanders about our [Root.Monarch.GetTitle] and undermine the state. This cannot be tolerated!

But where this was previously limited to a set number of routes and goods such as the manufactured goods of India and China finding their way across the Indian Ocean and along the Silk Road, all trade is now increasingly becoming part of a greater world network. With the discovery of the Americas, sea routes around Africa and the crossing of the Pacific Ocean, local trade networks are being connected into one world-spanning interconnected web.


Silver mined in the Andes is now being boxed and taken via Europe all the way to China and India. Iron mined and wrought in Scandinavia is being sold in West Africa by English merchants, and others are making a fortune just distributing cloth and spices within the South East Asian trade sphere. Local Indian merchants are investing in future European trade ventures. It may still be early to speak of a truly Global Economy but surely the first seeds have been sown.

They claim it is because their contacts with other lands have in turn increased from a few times a year to an almost constant contact with various trade networks and firms. Some have even offered to invest in their coming deliveries, something they claim is a common custom in their far-away homelands.

Msg event.pngManufactories

While a number of technical innovations during the course of the 16th and 17th centuries have increased the output of production for some products such as iron or cloth to an extent, the biggest improvement in the field of production has come in the form of new forms of organization. By creating manufactories, often outside the city limits, merchant capitalists can both bypass the ancient guild laws that inhibit mass production as well as pioneer ways to increase production through the organization and specialization of labor in one place. The forerunners of the later Industrialization are able to increase output by facilitating access to raw materials and mass organization of labor rather than by expensive new machinery. This is in itself a huge change over the often heavily regulated methods of old, however, and together with later technical advances this new mode of production will come to revolutionize society.

In [From.Capital.GetCapitalName], a colossal undertaking has begun for the assembly of a complete encyclopedia of all knowledge.

Msg event.pngThe Industrial Revolution

The rapid pace of technological change is beginning to have a profound effect on the very organization of society. The invention of the steam engine, the use of coke in iron production and new, mechanized manufacturing equipment allow for unprecedented economies of scale, bringing about a massive increase in worker productivity. Further inventions are helping to greatly ease the transportation of large volumes of goods. With global trade as interconnected as never before, factories can both draw on raw materials from and sell the resulting manufactured goods to markets around the world, bringing in unimaginable riches for their owners.


Meanwhile, the field of agriculture, new practices such as crop rotation and the use of enclosures have similarly increased productivity, meaning that fewer workers are needed to work the same area of land, leading many to abandon their homes and settle in the growing industrial cities. A new world is being born, one in which the ambitious and the rich shall dominate society as never before.

Their cheaper goods are now flooding our markets, making it harder for local producers to make a living. On the other hand, the insatiable appetite of [institution_country.GetAdjective] industries means that raw materials produced in [Root.GetUsableName] are now in high demand, with the result that the people are increasingly abandoning urban factories in favor of rural plantations.
