Msg event.pngNo Hard Feelings


[Root.Heir.GetName]'s good education and natural charm have made [Root.Heir.GetHerHim] a more than appropriate option to the throne. [Root.Monarch.GetName]'s poor administration, however, has made [Root.GetName] resent its lack of stability. The government of a nation is as difficult and delicate as collecting roses without touching a single thorn; and, sometimes, one is just not born with it. Maybe we could use one of those thorns...

Msg event.pngEven as a Shadow


After surviving the attempt to harm [Root.Monarch.GetHerHis] physical integrity, [Root.Monarch.GetName] has started to feel consumed by what [Root.Monarch.GetSheHe] may call caution, whilst others may refer to it using less pleasant words. [Root.Monarch.GetSheHeCap] has started to avoid social events, leaving the rest of the council alone to govern the whole nation.
[Root.Monarch.GetHerHisCap] flagrant lack of responsibility has raised many suspicions among the court, however, what has greatly deteriorated the public opinion of [Root.Monarch.GetName] is the strange behavior that [Root.Monarch.GetSheHe] has been exhibiting lately, [Root.Monarch.GetHerHis] eyes red and wide open in the middle of the night, muttering in darkness that [Root.Monarch.GetSheHe] shall never leave the throne, asking to someone to come at [Root.Monarch.GetHerHim] even as a shadow, even as a dream.

Msg event.pngEven as a Dream


After the unsuccessful attempt to stop [Root.Monarch.GetName] from worsening our nation's fate, the paranoia that had surrounded [Root.Monarch.GetHerHim] has only proved to be true, thus causing even a greater harm to [Root.Monarch.GetHerHis] mental health. Having already interrogated the closest members of the council, [Root.Monarch.GetName] has started to enter their rooms unannounced, accompanied by some royal guards and a severe tone to [Root.Monarch.GetHerHis] voice: "This must be done," is the only reply one can get from [Root.Monarch.GetHerHim] while their belongings are being checked.

Msg event.pngWicked Minds


Gold is a dangerous thing, its tempting shine impossible to resist. It lurks in the shadows, attracting unaware fools to its doomed glow, its gilding roundness as two demon eyes. [Root.Monarch.GetName] is no stranger to this perilous feeling, [Root.Monarch.GetHerHis] annoyed face desperately looking for a new toy to play with, [Root.Monarch.GetHerHis] fingers inspecting every drawer, every pocket, trying to use [Root.Monarch.GetHerHis] hands as Midas.
Meanwhile, our nation suffers, the population slowly falling into despair, their hungry mouths open in prayers.

Msg event.pngTreasure Hunt


It started with some innocent laughs, some casual comments, some sinless suggestions. Then it started transforming into some mischievous grins, some sharp comments, some sinister commands.
The entire palace knew that [Root.Monarch.GetName] had become too used to power, but few would even consider that [Root.Monarch.GetSheHe] would go this far to preserve it. Our rightful heir, [Root.Heir.GetName], has been imprisoned after being invited to "go find the special treasure" hidden in the dungeons.

Msg event.pngGlory Days


Sometimes hope is found in the most unexpected places. Since the start of [Root.Monarch.GetHerHis] regency, [Root.Monarch.GetName] has proven to be an excellent ruler, always aware of the necessities of our people. Some even go as far as to say that our nation would experience more prosperity if [Root.Monarch.GetSheHe] would stay as a ruler a little bit longer...
Given the imminent age of majority of [Root.Heir.GetName], that should be by no means possible, however, [Root.Heir.GetHerHis] ineptitude has already infuriated most of [Root.Heir.GetHerHis] teachers, many of them leaving our court after unsuccessfully trying to rein [Root.Her.GetHerHim] in.

Msg event.pngEstate's Leadership Challenged


During the last few months, a faction in our realm has been gaining strength and they see themselves as the leaders that should rule during this regency. Their demands started as gossip; someone whispers that this or that person are not happy with the direction of the nation, another says that the leading faction is not as strong as this other, or that they are not as represented in the regency as they should and so on. Those gossips have continued for weeks and their presence in the court is totally obvious nowadays, to the point that the faction challenging our regent's power is absolutely vocal about it. The regent is worried, for obvious reasons, and sees that [Root.Monarch.GetHerHis] own faction's power has been weakened to the point of doubting that it can fight back. It is the moment to make a decision that will change our nation.

Msg event.pngThe Regency's Abuses


For many, being in charge is nothing but an opportunity to advance their own personal interests. And that is exactly what our realm is suffering. Unchallenged and drunk with power, the faction behind our regent, and probably [Root.Monarch.GetHerselfHimself] too, is pressing to be granted some privileges. As we are in a position of weakness, refusing to accept their demands can be a dangerous move and we might be choosing a path to our own damnation. On the other hand, if they managed to cement their power, they might be difficult to remove, should they refuse to step away from lead once we have a proper ruler.

Msg event.pngThe Tyrant Regent


Blood feuds are the kind of things that make realms collapse, but they are as old as the human being itself. Our regent, [Root.Monarch.GetName], thinks being in power is a golden opportunity to get rid of some political enemies and adversaries. [Root.Monarch.GetSheHe] is using [Root.Monarch.GetHerHis] power as a regent to mercilessly attack any voice that speaks against [Root.Monarch.GetHerHim] or [Root.Monarch.GetHerHis] faction or even when they do not, just because [Root.Monarch.GetSheHe] can. Of course, the other factions are not specially happy with how things are being done and might try to retaliate. We are in a crossroad where we have to decide what to do, should we intervene?

Msg event.pngThe Regent Offers the Crown


When some loyal subjects approached us we could not believe the news. The regent and [Root.Monarch.GetHerHis] faction are very unpleased with the heir and [Root.Heir.GetHerHis] supporters, and have made the daring move to offer the crown of our nation to another country! We cannot do much but wait and hope our enemies do not take this opportunity to pounce on us and take the crown from our legitimate heir.

Msg event.pngThe Burghers Are Causing Problems


It is said that burghers only care about money. As long as money is abundant, they are happy and will not cause many problems. At least, that is what we thought. [Root.Monarch.GetName] and [Root.Monarch.GetHerHis] faction have used their power to further advance some shaddy businesses while they are in power. Smuggling is nothing new to us, we know it and it would not be the first time we turn our eyes blind to this, but this time these illicit moves have irritated another nation and they might use this incident as an excuse to declare war on us and get some compensations. Unfortunately, they are not willing to negotiate.

Msg event.pngIntolerance Raises


Nobody will be surprised if it is said that every religious power will always try to perpetuate their power or assert their domination over the rest when they rule. And this is exactly the situation [Root.TAG.GetName] is facing. The clergy in charge is using their power to remove the influence of other religions in our realm and their power is too big to refuse. A timid protest is all we have been able to elevate. We will change this policy in the future, no doubt, but for now we will need to live with it.

Msg event.pngOur Regent Is a Loyalist


While we always expect those put in charge of a regency to be loyal to the crown and to the nation, we are happy enough if they do not abuse their position or are directly unloyal and try to grab power as soon as they are in that position of leadership. [Root.Monarch.GetName] is an exception to the rule. Loyal and well mannered, [Root.Monarch.GetHerHis] propossal by [Root.Monarch.GetHerHis] faction was the best news in months since we expect nothing but the best from [Root.Monarch.GetHerHim].

Msg event.pngThe Regent Is a Good Influence


When good men and women are more devoted to the good of the nation than to their own interests, great things happen.

Msg event.png[Root.Monarch.GetName]'s Illness!


It is a fateful day for our nation. [Root.Monarch.GetName]'s illness is impossible to ignore anymore, precluding [Root.Monarch.GetHerHim] from taking care of [Root.Monarch.GetHerHis] duties. [Root.Monarch.GetSheHeCap] had been exhibiting increasing signs of mental instability, insisting on taking clearly disadvantageous decisions for our country.
This morning, a council of seventeen doctors have agreed on signing a document declaring [Root.Monarch.GetHerHim] unable to manage our kingdom, without any possible prospect of improving [Root.Monarch.GetHerHis] condition. After communicating their resolution to our heir, [Root.Heir.GetName], he has expressed his discontent with their suggestion of him taking the throne himself, arguing that he still feels a strong responsibility towards his mother.

Msg event.pngChâteau de Chenonceau


Matters of the heart should never be mixed with politics, especially when it comes to the king and queen of a nation. After the growing influence of Catherine in the French court, and the rising and obvious interest that her husband had expressed in Diane de Poitiers, it became inevitable that something had to be done.
As one of her first acts in her new position, Catherine has requested that Diane shall handle the imposing Château de Chenonceau back to the Crown, as well as the noble jewels that were so wrongly gifted to her.
