Msg event.pngThe Plot against Raja Ibrahim


The religious balance in an as cosmopolitan state as Malacca can be a very fragile thing. In our state traders of many religions and cultures live side by side yet still keep apart to a certain extent. The biggest communities, those of the Gujaratis, Tamils, Javanese and Chinese all have their own respective obligations to the state and keeping the influence of these groups in balance is one of the most important tasks of any Malaccan monarch.

The ascension of Raja Ibrahim in 1444 has therefore ruffled quite a few feathers. Ibrahim was a practicing Hindu and came to be seen by many as a traditionalist aiming to roll back the influence of Islam in our country. It still came as a big surprise when the young king was found dead in his palace today. Many suspect that his prime minister, the royal Bendahara, must've had a hand in this but little can be proven.

Msg event.pngBendahara Tun Perak


Unlike the late Raja Ibrahim (by now known as Abu Syahid Shah, the martyred king) our new ruler is a Muslim and the trader communities in our city seem to be more accepting of his rule. Nonetheless a royal Bendahara that would plot against his liege is a frightening thing and we would be wise to replace this minister or risk meeting the same fate as his last master. Our trusted advisors all point to a young and successful general as a suitable replacement. Tun Perak is said to be wise for his years but above all he is also said to be extremely loyal.

Msg event.pngIslam and the Malaccan state


Malacca has in many ways been the center of the islamization of the Malay archipelago. Our state itself has, however, always avoided any stern or overly orthodox varieties of Islamic law in favor of keeping it an attractive spot for traders of all nationalities. Instead tradition is relied upon to be the law of the land while orthodox Islamic laws have been reserved for special cases, often related to keeping the public order. While this has upset some of those with more delicate religious sensibilities over the years it has been good for trade and has therefore been supported the Malaccan communities.

Over time, however, Muslims have become more and more dominant in our state and due to its importance for the spread of Islam among the islands some have even begun to consider Malacca a pilgrimage site. Perhaps the time has come to introduce a bit more orthodoxy in the laws and customs of our state?

Msg event.pngCustoms and Duties


Trade is the sole occupation for our kingdom and to the surprise of many visitors we have little in the way of agriculture and have to import even basic foodstuffs. Despite this our kingdom is flourishing and ships from all over Asia come to our docks to sell, buy and resell all kinds of goods.

In order to further encourage trade the royal Bendahara has suggested that we lower customs and duties to almost nothing. This bold policy would set us apart even from other trade oriented kingdoms and would in his opinion secure our place as the greatest emporium of the East.

Msg event.pngHang Tuah


While putting down some disturbances related to a man running amok in the countryside our Bendahara received unexpected aid from a local warrior today. When all the Bendahara's own guards had fled this man and his friends acted quickly and valiantly to save our minister. Moved by this deep loyalty to the state the Bendahara immediately appointed the young warrior, Hang Tuah, to the post of royal commander.

Our kingdom has now gained the service of one of its greatest champions.

Msg event.pngArrival of the Portuguese


Ships from distant shores is no rare thing in Malacca yet today an unusual visitor arrived in our city. The captain presents himself as coming from a Christian kingdom far to the west known as Portugal and wants to sign a trade agreement by which his country would become one of the most favored trading partners of our state.

The Muslim Gujarati community, however, is propagating very strongly that the man is dangerous and that his country is a sworn enemy to our religion. The Gujaratis are so vehemently opposed to Portuguese presence here that they have already begun to act with open hostility towards the newcomers, confiscating their goods and boarding their ships. There is a risk that this could get out of hand very quickly...
