Msg event.pngKoxinga Flees to Taiwan


Over the course of our nation’s collapse we have lost most of our ports and thus control over what remains of our navy. Claiming to be a Ming loyalist, a general known as Koxinga has commandeered several vessels and fled to Taiwan. The Ming government has historically taken little interest in the island, seeing it as a largely irrelevant backwater. Koxinga however sees potential in the island, and aims to use it as a base from which to eventually retake the mainland.


 
This event happens only once during a campaign.

  • Is Flag of Ming Ming
  • Total Development.png development is less than 600

Msg event.pngLosing Control of the South


South China is in chaos. Swarms of rebels and bandits ravage the countryside and even control several cities of vital importance to the state. As the [Root.GetAdjective] state has failed to deal with this crisis, local governors have taken matters into their own hands. They have raised armies to combat the rebels, but they are refusing to take orders from our generals. Our messengers report that they intend to continue to administer their feudatory states even after the crisis is over. Allowing them to rule so autonomously will set a dangerous precedent, but we are hardly in a position to challenge these lords.
