Msg event.pngThe Strategic Decision after Zheng He's Journey

Around 1400 China's relations with the outside world began to change. Under the Yuan dynasty China had made contact with the West by reopening the old silk routes and bringing Muslim, Christian, and Jewish traders into China. The expulsion of the Mongols in 1367 and the seizure of power by the Ming reversed the processes that were tying China more strongly to the outside. Following the seven expeditions (1405-1433) of admiral Zheng-He, who sailed the imperial fleet into the Indian Ocean and to the coast of Africa, China folded in on itself and closed off its external connections.

Msg event.pngRepairing the Great Wall

Ever since the capture of the Emperor Zhengtong by the Mongols, security on the northern frontier has been an important issue. One problem is the sorry state of the Great Wall, built in ancient times, but left to crumble in recent centuries. We could repair the Great Wall, but it would be expensive and the effort, both physical and fiscal, would likely cause some unrest among the people. However, with improved defenses, the provinces in the area would likely become more productive and secure, while without them people may leave to safer havens. What shall we do?

Msg event.pngThe Perfection of Ming Porcelain

Recent advances in glazes, painting techniques, and pottery-making have resulted in a product that many experts claim is perfection.

Msg event.pngThe Closure of China

European traders seemingly can be found everywhere in China. They are draining the profits away from our own traders and driving them into bankruptcy, causing us much lost revenue in taxes and tariffs. Perhaps we should ban them altogether or confine them to a single city in order to better control them and make it easier to impose trade tariffs. Our experts believe that giving the city of Macao to the Portuguese and only allowing the Europeans to trade there might be the best solution. This will also give us the benefit of expanding trade in our southern regions around Canton. Then again, we could choose to shun outside trade altogether or to open our shores to free and unhindered trade by all. What shall be our policy?

Msg event.pngQi Jiguang's Army Reforms

The noted general Qi Jiguang has proposed a series of military reforms which, if implemented, would make our armies stronger and our men fight more effectively. Unfortunately, a thorough overhaul of the military is quite an undertaking. It will take quite a bit of money and effort, and even then the armed forces may not appreciate the changes, leading to instability and desertions. Shall we implement the reforms?

Msg event.pngThe arrival of the Jesuits

In 1581, the first Jesuit missionaries arrived in China, bringing gifts to the Emperor and exhibiting various mechanical inventions from Europe. They also exhibited great knowledge by creating a huge map of the world and in proposing sound ideas for calendar reform. But they also brought with them strange religious and philosophical ideas, which started to disrupt the traditional order of China. Should these missionaries be allowed to stay?

Msg event.pngFamine!

A famine of epic proportions has stricken our nation! A prolonged drought has caused harvests in the last few years to be exceedingly poor, leaving the people with very little, or nothing to eat. Deaths due to starvation or disease are rampant in the countryside, and reports of cannibalism and peasants grinding stones to make flour are commonplace. Many have resorted to banditry in order to feed themselves. The people cry out for the government to relieve their suffering, but to help so many will be costly indeed.

Due to decades of rebellions, unrest, and corruption, our financial situation is in dire straits. We need a new inflow of cash, but the only way to do so is to institute new unpopular taxes.

But if we don't, we may lose the ability to raise taxes efficiently in certain provinces due to the unrest. What shall we do?

Msg event.pngThe Expulsion of the Jesuits

Due to recent events, it now seems that the Jesuits may have outlived their usefulness. Although their knowledge is great, it is foreign to us and sometimes causes much commotion among our scholars and the common folk, disrupting the stability of our realm. They have been for decades interfering in the internal affairs of our nation - the final straw was their meddling in the recent succession. Perhaps it is time for them to go.

An unusual Jesuit has approached the Imperial Court. Matteo Ricci dresses like a Chinese, has adopted many Chinese customs and talks in a way similar to the Chinese. A scholar as well as a missionary Ricci seems to be as interested in the customs, cartography and science of the Chinese world as he is to inform them of his own. This does mean that Ricci has had a lot more success than many of his brethren when it comes to attracting converts but his skills, especially relating to astronomy and cartography could undoubtedly come of use to us.

Msg event.pngControversy over Chinese Rites

So far contacts between our church and the Chinese have been handled exclusively by the Jesuits. In order to approach the Chinese the order has learnt their customs, their language and in general tried to be a part of Chinese society.
With the arrival of Dominicans and Franciscans in China, however, disturbing reports have begun to reach us. It seems the Jesuits are tolerating a very high degree of non-Christian rituals among the supposedly converted Chinese. The other orders are abhorred by the Jesuit conduct and by their supposedly Christian converts and have urged us to make a clear statement that the Chinese Ancestor rites have no place among Christians and that anyone who wishes to join our Church must abandon such things.
