 Shirazi Islam and the Patricians of Kilwa

Most of the Swahili states are to this day ruled by dynasties that claim to be descended from the first Islamic migration into this region. The Islam practiced by these 'Shirazis', as they call themselves, is, however, not the most orthodox form of the religion. Many older local ceremonies are performed daily in our court and the Shirazi lineages are considered to have magical abilities that give them the right to rule these cities.
As the wealth of Kilwa and the other Swahili states grows, however, new waves of foreigners continue to arrive in great numbers. Traders from Oman, Persia, the Bahmani kingdom and other faraway lands have made our cities their home and a rising class of indigenous merchants has made these groups their partners. Many of the newcomers are abhorred by our traditions. If we would adopt a more orthodox form of Islam this would certainly help our relations with the other states of the Indian Ocean, but there is a very real risk that it would undermine our own rule and hurt relations with the other Swahili states.

 The Kilwa Chronicle

With more and more foreign traders arriving in the Swahili coast from orthodox Islamic states our old Shirazi ways have come more and more under fire. We have watched with disgust as some of the old Shirazi dynasties of the Swahili coast have been overthrown by a rising class of indigenous traders allied with the newcomers.
As one of the oldest and most powerful Shirazi dynasties, however, we still stand strong. In order to suitably impress foreigners and domestic troublemakers alike it might be best if we assigned our scribes to create a chronicle over our famous lineage, so that none may doubt our Shirazi origin and the old Islamic roots of our dynasty.

 Abandoning Shirazi traditions

In the process of reforming the religious establishment of our kingdom we have come to the point where we will need to make a choice in regards to which tradition we should try to emulate. Our kingdom is home to Persian Shiites, Ibadi traders from Oman as well as Indian and Turkish Sunni traders. Apart from theological considerations the form of Islam we will associate with is likely to shape the foreign policy of our kingdom for years to come.

 Cannibals!

While our kingdom owes its entire existence to the Indian-Ocean trade network and holds very little real control over the African inland we must always be on our guard for the people of the interior. One such group, the cannibalistic Zimba, have been spreading fear along the coast far to our south. With little warning the Zimba suddenly descended on the city of Kilwa itself today. Many Kilwan citizens are now dead and even more have fled the city. It will take years for Kilwa to recover, we can scarcely remember a greater tragedy in the history of our kingdom.

 Coup of Suleiman and Muhammad al-Mazlum

When Sultan Ismâ'îl ascended the throne of Kilwa in 1442 his rule was questioned by the local rulers in Zanzibar who supported his relative Said's bid to become sultan. Said's plot was, however, thwarted by the royal vizier Suleiman and the emir Muhammad al-Mazlum.
With the passing of Ismâ'îl himself, however, it seems Suleiman and Muhammad have decided that the time has come for them to rule in their own name. Acting quickly they have used their influence to secure the capital for themselves and have agreed to share power by taking the throne in turns.

 
This event happens only once during a campaign.

 Unpopular Coupmaker

While $MONARCH$ had served as minister of the throne in many years before usurping power directly his coup has made him unpopular among the citizens of Kilwa. Prominent citizens are now demanding his resignation and unless placated we may have a revolt on our hands sooner or later.
 
This event happens only once during a campaign.
Trigger conditions

Mean time to happen

30 months

 Plotting Vizier

Holding on to the Kilwan throne has never been easy and with the great number of plots surrounding the coronation of monarchs over the last decades the post of Vizier in the royal government has become one sought by ambitious men wanting the throne for themselves rather than loyal administrators eager to serve the crown.
The faltering popularity of the monarchy lately was apparently all that our current Vizier needed to attempt to secure the throne for himself.

 
Trigger conditions

The country:

It is before 1510.

Mean time to happen

75 months


 
Ok.

  Pretender rebels (size 2) rise up in revolt in a random province of   Kilwa.
