    How the RP Works:
    This RP moves in Events, with the start date of each event given and time passing depending on the actions or moves taken, until the event is over. When moving to the next event, a brief summary will be made about each family's progress until that point, this is done randomly via dice rolls, so good luck champs!

    3 Types of Events:

    Politics: This can be something as simple as a visit from a neighboring kingdom or banquet, to something as messy as a Conspiracy, and will make up the majority of events. These shape the kingdom and the balance of power the most. Even the smallest thing in these can mean death of a family or birth of a new monarchy.
    ((This is the only type of Event in which a Player family can start, they may do so by petitioning me in a DM and ironing out some of the logistics of the scenario))

    Acts of God: These events are the most random and sometimes the most devastating is not handled properly, it can be anything from a fire in your city to a great famine, or worse... the Plague, though power plays can be made during an act of god they are much more difficult to succeed, and much more disastrous to the family should they fail.

    War: This is by far the messiest option but allow for you to gain more power quickly but always at a cost, wars are often brutal, long and expensive for everyone involved... this option means the most micromanagement and the most fragile power structure for everyone, war changes more than the physical map.


    Everything but dialogue is a move and should be treated with specificity and care, you may not react to another persons move until the turn has passed, very similar to a Nation Builder in this way, the usual rules of Role Playing apply, Best wishes, and may Fortuna smile upon you.

    ((Politics)) 4th of August, in the Year of our Lord 2176

    The Kingdom of Szczecin, has been under an embargo for a few days by some of it's neighboring Kingdoms, King Iwan must find a resolution and reassemble his court, many of which had died over the summer, including the Minister of War - Who had died in a duel, The Treasurer - who died of old age, and a few of his general advisers, Iwan still managed to keep most of the advisers in his board, and Spiritual Adviser: Albin Dzik. Your personal adviser, a middle aged bald man whom you've known since childhood suggests that you appoint the most powerful families to your court lest you risk upsetting them. He also tells you to give at least one of them a higher position.

    6th of August, in the Year of our Lord 2176

    It's a crisp Tuesday morning as you all meet in the hall of the Szczecin palace, everyone has gathered to meet the 15 chairs laid out so that two overlook all the others, everyone hushes and await the proceedings to start, the Personal Adviser of the king, one Zygfryd Wiatrowsk, unravels a scroll clears his throat then speaks, "We shall begin with our first issue of the day, the marriage of Princess Iwona. As you know several proposals have been made from the son of a duke in the lands of Berlin, Princes of Seegrund and Gryfino, and of course King Oliver."

    Iwan recalls the night prior when the Personal Advisor explained the kingdoms and the benefits of what each marriage would bring.

    He remembered that his Personal adviser had told him that:

    Marrying to the Prince of Seegrund Would afford them the ability to go to war with Turznica, and would likely lead to that, with the hot headed Protestant ruler, but he is indeed a violent and outrageous ruler.

    Marrying to the son of the Berlin Duke would afford you no more than better relations with Berlin and a handsome dowry.

    Marrying to the Prince of Gryfino could be problematic as he is still a child only about 8 years old and it would take time before the marriage could be consummated, but this would put our kingdom in high favor with the papacy, and gain us official recognition from the church and could even stop the southern embargo

    Marrying to King Oliver would ensure we have influence on the throne of his kingdom, and his positioning could help us alleviate the embargo from the north, he also controls a much more powerful kingdom than the others though he's young and a bit of a wildcard.

    Werner Tonna advised King Iwan that marrying his daughter off to King Oliver would also open up future trade potential throughout the Baltic Sea.

    "I fear Oliver's reign will be short." Iwan calmly voiced.

    "Oliver is disliked by many around him for his youth, and is bound to attract their steel in time." Wit Skalka added.

    "But if he falls and we have an heir in place we may be able to take his kingdom affording us control over Turznica." An old man from your advisers interjects.

    "And taking Hammerschmidt's islands would prove quite lucrative. We would control everything that enters and leaves through the Oder River," Werner added.

    Wit Salka nodded and crossed his arms. "With the threat of war with Stargrad and us, those with ill feelings for Oliver may prove too scared to attack."

    Iwan took their voices into account and waited for the rest to speak up.

    "Putting aside personal disgust, the young prince of Gryfino holds many long term benefits, and the son in Berlin offers little in the way of repurecations." Iwan answered.

    The old man spoke up again, "Well there may be a way to solve one of these issues, perhaps offer your son's hand to the Queen of Gryfino, and then your daughter to another?"

    "That could be our remedy for the poor relations that our two lands have experienced for the past few years." Wit Salka added.

    "That is, if the Queen of Gryfino is even willing to marry Prince Jozafat," Werner stated, "she isn't fond of Stettin and such a marriage would pose potential problems for her. What other marriage candidates are options for Jozafat should Janina decline?"

    "No open declaration have been made as of yet." The Personal Adviser states.

    Piotr had decided his son Gabriel as his oldest son at the age of 33 to be the most suitable candidate to accept the office of treasurer on behalf of the family. He dressed much more ornately than his father and is much less patient but he has still inherited his father's cation and ambition. He stayed quiet in court, observing the proceedings. If the kingdom was to fall into a war the banks could make a massive profit in war loans but he also knew this to be risky and could potentially spell ruin for his family if the kingdom was to fall. The best outcome he could hope for the embargo to be lifted from the kingdom. He would be content with marriage with Gryfino or Berlin so remains quiet as that seems to be the way the king is leaning already.
