Current Issues

Poland-Lithuanian Statehood (Opened by Austria)

This current issue is whether Poland and Lithuania should be allowed entry into the Empire. The Emperor suggests that if entry is permissible, the two regions be divided in needed to aid in governing.

Agree

  • Venice
  • Byzantium

Disagree

  • Brandenburg
  • Luxembourg
  • Bavaria
  • Milan

Discussion

  • Milan: Will this brings us problems with the Russians?
  • How would this effect our relations? I have been offered a most lucrative deal if Poland ever becomes an issue...
  • Too risky. Puts us on bad relations with the Russians, whose aid we will need in the future, and even worse with the Muslims, who will then use their war against Poland as the casus belli for attacking us. It also damages the relations of my nation(s) with the allies of my nation. I hereby give a negative vote on all accounts. ~ Wilhelm of Brandenburg, William of Aragon.
  • Think about it, the HRE nearly doubles in size and the way the Russians are treating AgentMars is appalling. They also say if Agent joins the HRE, they will annex all of Lithuania. That will shut them down for an eon with revolts and uprisings. The Muslims are out of most of their territory but the CALIPHATE is now operating in Lithuania. Not only that but Venetian spies have picked up info that the Russians are seriously considering a plan to ALLY WITH THE CALIPH and attack the HRE. Tthey didn't hesitate to backstab Poland so think about your alliances carefully - who exactly does that trade deal REALLY benefit; you or Novgorod? Isn't it weakening the Imperial Trade Guild and the Venetian Trade League? We also weaken Russian Orthodox influence in Europe and allow the continuation of Greek Orthodox and Roman Catholic healing to speed up with no Russian involvement. ~ Emperor Dimetri and Doge Pietro.
  • Talking about AgentMars is meta gaming. Knowing that they will cooperate is metagaming. Poland was in their way of gaining a coast, and half of their trade depends on Brandenburg and the Hanseatic League. Orthodoxy is Orthodoxy, regardless of which variation. ~ BrandenAgon
  • As appealing as it is to double the size of the HRE. Doing so would put us at the mercy of the Caliphate AND Russia. As it stands now, we can defeat the Caliphate if attacked, but if we push Russia away, who would be able to secure the region? We need the Russians. I do agree that we must be wary, but I feel we do need them ~King Andreas II the Merciful, Sovereign of all Bavarias.

Mongolian Statehood (Opened by Austria)

The Golden Khanate of the converted Mongols would prove to be an asset to represent Imperial interests in the Black Sea area, as well as supply our armed forces with excellent horses.

Agree

  • Austria
  • Tyrolia
  • Bavaria
  • Baden-Wurttemberg
  • Brandenburg
  • Luxembourg

Disagree

Discussion

War with Naples (Opened by Bavaria)

There is increasing fear that there will be a war between Naples and Venice, which ergo means, the rest of the HRE. Should we or should we not?

Favor

  • Brandenburg
  • Pomarania
  • Byzantium

Against

  • Milan
  • Genoa
  • Calais
  • Savoy
  • Bavaria- I have determined that the cost of war is too high and I do believe we have come to an agreement with Naples.

Neutral (For those interested in the developments, but don't wish to become heavily involved)

  • Florence
  • Austria
  • Tyrolia
  • Venice - We really do not wish to get involved. We are a nation of merchants and seafarers - not conquerors.

Discussion

  • Aragon's territorial claims are being endangered, and it seeks vengeance for the 50 year old secession. Brandenburg and Luxembourg obviously support it. IMPERIAL NY-SPQR 1Regen Flag Hasta la vista, baby. (I'll be back.) 18:39, October 8, 2012 (UTC)
    • The Baleares never belonged to Naples, a Mod just explained that to me. Quiari (talk) 00:25, October 9, 2012 (UTC)
  • Naples is a Milanese ally, and I hope Venice (plus Aragon) and Naples will solve their problems through negotiation.Bauglir Stormageddon, Dark Lord of All (talk) 21:03, October 8, 2012 (UTC)
    • I try see:
      • Hello, using a theme that is already open about me I would diplomatically solve the question of the Balkans. Venice is a great power (and also a major trading partner of Naples) and one of his vassals the Byzantine Empire has a great desire for expansion, your union with Epirus is a fact and there is no way to interfere there I do not wish to interfere, but otherwise Serbia can not belong to your sphere of influence, your vassal would be bigger than you. The Kingdom of Naples want expanding into this realm, without interfering with your policy to the south and east of the Balkans ... In this war that comes between HRE and the Caliphate, the best thing for you would be to expand the Byzantine Empire to the east and recover the territories of the Ottomans. Epirus I think it's yours, in the same way that Albania can be incorporated into your Empire I do not know whether or not easily, that's something we might see in the coming shifts. What do you say? Quiari (talk) 15:40, October 4, 2012 (UTC)
      • I'm not going to say anything. Just going to point out that Serbia doesn't have a coastline... (I assume he doesn't see Montenegro Quiari (talk) 00:25, October 9, 2012 (UTC)) You are free to try to take it but I fail to see how it will work. Scandinator (talk) 02:47, October 5, 2012 (UTC)
  • Asti and Luxembourg are not electors (which means they are not members of the Conclave) and Aragon is not even part of the Empire. Besides that, we must convince Naples to find a pacific way out of the current sovereignty problem for the Bealeares Islands in which Naples has obviously no right of economy, culture nor history. The Venetian intention to make war with Naples is just another Imperialist attempt of the Venetians to expand their influence and have an Empire-inside-the-empire. -- Galaguerra1 (talk) 23:03, October 8, 2012 (UTC)
    • Naples is not asking for the Baleares anymore, one mod explained to me that the territory was never mine. Sorry for that. Quiari (talk) 23:59, October 8, 2012 (UTC)
  • They seized the Despotate of Serbia, imprisoned Ektor's cousin and are crushing the Orthodox inhabitants under their heels. Byzantium wishes to protect their peoples and reunite the Southern Balkans. Scandinator (talk) 23:26, October 8, 2012 (UTC)
    • I went for Montenegro since I started the game ... When the Serbian player left, I started diplomacy there. Venice and the Byzantines in two or three turns annexed Epirus and Albania! Three turns! is this really that easy to do??? And now they come and say that Serbia-Montenegro are of them ... Quiari (talk) 23:59, October 8, 2012 (UTC)
  • Not only that, I have proof he is working with the Caliphate. See The High Imperial Court (Principia Moderni II Map Game) Scandinator (talk) 23:29, October 8, 2012 (UTC)
    • Bitch, please... Quiari (talk) 23:59, October 8, 2012 (UTC)
  • Naples is guilty of crimes against Christendom. We MUST act.Andr3w777 (talk) 23:30, October 8, 2012 (UTC)
    • No crime as you can see... Quiari (talk) 23:59, October 8, 2012 (UTC)
  • The Pope supports a diplomatic way out of this conflict. We must find it, before feeding the imperialist ambitions of Venice. --Galaguerra1 (talk) 03:33, October 9, 2012 (UTC)
  • Why is Bavaria supporting Venice? I think the Bavarians, as a diplomatic, peaceful and English and Milanese allied nation must support us. Also, according to Paragraph LXI of the Constitution war can only be declared with 2/3 of votes in the Conclave.
    • The total of electors is 18. The required majority is 12.
    • The Emperor has decided to remain neutral. We can't count neither the votes of Austria nor Tyrolia. That makes the de facto total of electors 16. Making the required majority ten or eleven. I think ten is enough.
    • At the moment, there are nine votes. The required majority to declare war would be six. But, at the moment, you just have five votes in favor.
  • Bavaria sees that Naples was in talks with the Caliphate. In their favor I must say I don't know for sure their intent, but IF it IS hostile to the HRE, then I must support the war, otherwise, yes I agree with a diplomatic solution. Bavaria has always striven for a diplomatic means. Just look at our annexations every single one but one was a diplomatic take over.Andr3w777 (talk) 17:54, October 9, 2012 (UTC)
    • So far I do not know where you take it that I am hostile to the Holy Roman Empire. I've never planned anything against the HRE. I have never attacked a HRE member ... then you are accusing me of nothing, right? Quiari (talk) 18:50, October 9, 2012 (UTC)
    • NO - JUST BEING CAREFUL. JESUS CHRIST!! HOW MANY TIMES MUST I SAY THAT!!!
  • The King of Naples has died, the King of Savoy, Pedro III is now King of Naples, (read my post) and now I request entry of Naples, the Holy Roman Empire. No more conflict in Serbia. My troops have come out of there and left the country to its fate ... what you say now? Quiari (talk) 19:09, October 9, 2012 (UTC)
  • I say withdraw fully from the east side of the Adriatic. Venice is not the Serene Duchy over the Adriatic for no reason... I am protecting Venetian and Byzantine interests in the area. You have plenty of room to expand uncontested to the south if you help us with the Caliphate. You can gain Tunisia and Algeria with Venetian help. Deal? That will give you a massive Empire in North Africa... an area I will not challenge you over. Scandinator (talk) 03:03, October 10, 2012 (UTC)
  • Look, I understand your position and your intentions. I have no intention of challenging the supremacy of the eastern Mediterranean. I do not want to interfere with your interests, and I think it right to try to restore the Byzantine Empire and hopefully another player can come and take those reins. In the Black Sea you have your territory and I have no problems with you. At this time I have left Serbia: is what you have been claiming all along? I reject the Caliphate and want to join the Holy Roman Empire (still waiting to accept me ...) you propose that I withdraw from the Adriatic, but you have to understand that I've spent many turns here. I pledge before the HRE to protect the interests of Byzantium and the interests of the Empire. No territory of theirs is in danger. As proof of this, I have given Serbia. If you say you do not want those territories to Venice but to Byzantium then you should not see a problem. After the defeat of the Caliphate it would please me very much to see the distribution of North Africa. You offer me Tunisia, Libya or Algeria, but until we get to that, not only I will seek those territories. I'm proposing a status quo, you have your area of influence. You get the territories you wanted. I promise not to interfere in the eastern Mediterranean, or Black Sea, nor in the Byzantine Empire, or any other matter have those places (unless you specify more than one) and you then simply do the equivalent. I remain in the land where I am and I seek my own zones and enclaves, without harming you. No wars between our Christian nations, only prosperity. If necessary it can be pronounced HRE and the vote ended a dispute that may arise, always in search of peace, justice and balance of powers. Quiari (talk) 19:55, October 10, 2012 (UTC)

Future War with Prussia (Opened by Brandenburg)

Prussia remains a threat to the interests of Brandenburg, and as long as it stands, the Germans are hindered. Brandenburg proposes a future war with Prussia in the case that it becomes a pressing threat.

For

  • Bavaria (with provisions)
  • Baden-Wurttemberg (with provisions)

Against

  • Venice (costly, too far and isn't Russia about to crush them?)
  • Byzantium

Decision

My provision that we attack ONLY if they become an increasing threat. I have heard of Russian plans to seize Prussia, Whether or not that is true, remains to be seen. We must play carefully in this matter, because the mods are threatening severe punishment on the HRE for continued conflicts. If possible, let us avoid war.Andr3w777 (talk) 22:51, October 8, 2012 (UTC)(Bavaria)

Russia is. No reason to hide it. Might like some support, too. But we are. No worries about further threats. The Royal Guns (talk) 19:29, October 9, 2012 (UTC)

Change that, we already have. The Royal Guns (talk) 19:27, October 11, 2012 (UTC)

Membership of Naples (Opened by Imperial Government)

Since this issue has gone on long enough, it should be answered. Should Naples be allowed to join the Empire?

Agree

  • Savoy
  • Milan
  • Genoa

  • Byzantium
  • Bavaria
  • Baden-Wurttemberg
  • Calais
  • Pessaro
  • Lorraine
  • Palatinate

Discussion

Since to let a state join the HRE is a decision of the Reichstag, all states may vote. --Galaguerra1 (talk) 21:44, October 11, 2012 (UTC)

Membership of Aragon

Aragon asks to join the HRE since it is in union with Brandenburg, which is in the HRE.

Agree

  • Milan
  • Genoa
  • Tyrolia
  • Austria (Will Navarre join as well?)

Disagree

  • Calais
  • Pessaro
  • Byzantium

Abstain

  • Lorraine
  • Venice

Discussion

  • Milan: I see no reason to stop Aragon from joining the HRE - more lands and power to keep Europe and Christendom safe.

Caliphate Invasion of Byzantium (opened by Bavaria)

  • The Caliphate has declared war on Byzantium, as Byzantium is a de facto member of the HRE I suggest we bring the full might of Europe down onto the Muslim Infidels.

Membership of Cyprus (Opened by Imperial Government)

As some of you probably know, Cyprus would like to join the Holy Roman Empire. It is a relic of the Crusades, with a Catholic government but an Orthodox people. Nevertheless, it has a prime position in the Eastern Mediterranean.

Agree

  • Austria
  • Tyrolia
  • Milan
  • Genoa
  • Brandenburg
  • Venice
  • Byzantium
  • Savoy
  • Naples

Disagree

Succession to the Emperor (Opened by Brandenburg)

Emperor Frederick is on the verge of death. We need to name his successor so we don't fall into anarchy when he dies. UPDATE: Our great Emperor has died. Let us nominate whomever we see most fit to be our next illustrious Emperor.

Frederick IV of Brandenburg

Virtues

Frederick IV is the Electorate of Brandenburg. He has undertaken several projects to employ his people and has ensured that little to no people go hungry in his state, as well as being religiously tolerant, so long as it is a recognized Christian branch. He has also funded four voyages to the mystical land of Antillia, which could possibly be a ripe land for our colonization, as well as having established a colony there already, which could be a foothold for our Empire. He has also eliminated the problems with Prussians and Luxembourgians. His predecessors have also brought him up with a good education, in the HRE and in the foreign parts of Russia and France. He has also brought us on to good terms with the Orthodox nations, so that they do not pose a threat to us. His wife is also the daughter of the deceased Emperor. His diplomatic skills are excellent, and he is on good terms with the neighboring countries in Russia, as well as England, Scotland, and Sweden-Norway.

Vices

He is a northerner, and may be unable to relate well with the Italians, Greeks and Coptics.

Aye:

  • Brandenburg

Frederick Constantine of Austria

Virtues

Frederick Constantine is heir to the thrones of Tyrolia and Austria when his father dies. He is a well educated individual who has taken many trips to Italy, Iberia, and the Papacy as well. He is a firm supporter of the war on the Caliphate, and is also married to Isabella of Castille.

Vices

He is an extreme Catholic, and views his father's efforts at reducing Catholic influence and size a problem. He does not have a high view of either his mother, an Orthodox Christian, or any of the non-Catholic states. He is also critical of Russia.

Aye:

  •  

Wilhelm Kribt of Greater Bavaria

Virtues

Wilhelm Kribt is the heir to the thrones of the "Great Unifier" and held the nation together during his father's death during the plague. He is a loyal Catholic and was a great friend to the last Emperor. He was educated in Rome and London and is well educated, and is lauded as a man of diplomacy and peace, but is willing to fight to protect the Empire that he loves. He is Southern, meaning that he has good relations to the Italian States. And is directly allied to the Pope. And was also an aid in gaining the Russian Federation's support for the war.

Vices

He is sometimes seen as a Catholic Reformer and is sometimes accused of finding a peaceful solution too often. He is also somewhat frugal with funding.

Aye:

  • Bavaria
  • Milan
  • Genoa
  • Naples
  • Savoy
  • Austria
  • Tyrolia
  • Saxony
  • Venice
  • Calais

Discussion:

That last sentence is more than false, sorry. Frederick IV of Brandenburg, who is allied to the Russian Federation, eliminated the Prussian threat with the Russians in the case that the Russians should support us against the Muslims at any given time in the near future. In actuality, it was thus Brandenburg's alliance that secured Russian aid. IMPERIAL NY-SPQR 1Regen Flag Hasta la vista, baby. (I'll be back.) 03:42, October 26, 2012 (UTC)

I did say you weren't involved. I said I helped partially to set up a stronger alliance Therefore, I was speaking the truth.Andr3w777 (talk) 20:59, October 26, 2012 (UTC)

We only need one more person to vote and then Wilhelm will be Emperor!!. Bauglir Stormageddon, Dark Lord of All (talk) 00:14, October 29, 2012 (UTC)

Wilhelm is the new Emperor! According to the algorithm (see formula in the constitution, clarification (d)) 1819 x pi = 5714, 5570368798... more than 50, so we take away the eight digit 98 - 7 = 91. Anyway, the top number is 80, but just if Wilhelm has 25 years or less. If he doesn't then he can rule only for 50 years. Anyway, you can reign for 50 years, as I suppose he's not 25, but you can accelerate the process at any time if you want, or your forces by another force (e.g. coup d'état, forced abdication, plague...). Congratulations, Emperor. --Galaguerra1 (talk) 21:03, October 31, 2012 (UTC)

XYZ of Landland

Frederick III's Amendments and Laws

Amendment One

It is forbidden for states to leave the Holy Roman Empire for any reason, save that the central government is taking away the rights given to the people.

Justification

We cannot let our gains be defeated by some states acting selfishly. We all read the Constitution, and we all agreed. So therefore we are duty bound to defend each other.

Amendment Two

Declaration of the state religion of the individual states will be reduced down to the state level, so long as it is some recognized branch of Christianity.

Justification

We now have many states. Byzantium and Cyprus are both largely Orthodox, the Canary Islands are Orthodox, Alexandria is Coptic, and while the Golden Khanate is officially Catholic, it is highly suspected that they are in fact Nestorian. Therefore, our growing size needs to reflect the growing diversity of our nation, and so our law must adapt.

Amendment Three

The Constitution is the defining law of the country. The laws of government embodied in the document may not be changed, and this amendment must never be changed.

Justification

We know not what the future may bring. We need to make sure that unrest occurs after the current Emperor's death that the Empire fragments again.

Agreed To All

  • Austria
  • Tyrolia
  • Saxony Callumthered (talk)
  • Genoa
  • Calais (Is this only for electors?)
  • Cyprus

Agreed To At Least One (State which one(s))

All of them except succession. As sovereign nation-states we should be allowed to retain the ability to secede from the main government, if the people feel they are being oppressed. I motion that is illegal to leave without first holding an emergency convention in which 2/3rds majority must vote to pass. Anything less, then the state will remain in the Empire.Andr3w777 (talk) 17:30, October 25, 2012 (UTC)

Colonialism

The Elector of Saxony was wondering whether the HRE will form a united front for the colonisation of Antillia.

If all the member-states contributed their fair share, then the rewards could be shared out likewise. For example, if the seafaring states contributed ships and things, the other landlocked nations could provide money, men and wares to trade with.

If the HRE is going to survive as an economically viable nation into the future, we need to act now to insure we have a foothold in the New World. Callumthered (talk) 12:25, October 27, 2012 (UTC)

Agree, we have in some years the Reformation war and everything, so we should hurry up and establish a German-Italian colony. Bauglir Stormageddon, Dark Lord of All (talk) 00:17, October 29, 2012 (UTC)

Brandenburg already owns OTL New York City and Long Island, via Aragon, and come 1513 shall have them proper, and begin expanding into OTL New York State, New Jersey and Connecticut. The German part is half done.

Although I agree with you folks both.

Election of the Chancellor (Opened by the Duchy of Luxembourg)

The Grand Duke Louis V of Luxembourg has recently noticed the absence of an elected Chancellor. As such, he brings the election of a new Chancellor before the Conclave of Kings.

Frederick of Brandenburg (Proposed by Luxembourg)

Frederick of Brandenburg has been campaigning for the Chancellery since the Election of the Emperor. Frederick IV has skillfully mastered the positive relations with Russia and Scandinavia that largely avoided war with these countries as well as bringing Russia to aid us in the war with the Caliphate. The Chancellery largely tackles complex foreign relations and keeping them intact and balanced, one of many things His Excellency (can I use that title?) has achieved. IMPERIAL NY-SPQR 1Regen Flag Hasta la vista, baby. (I'll be back.) 22:11, November 1, 2012 (UTC)

Aye

  • Venice
  • Brandenburg
  • Milan
  • Genoa
  • Calais
  • Lorraine
  • Pesaro (remember that every state is able to vote for Chancellor, not only electors)

Nay

Election

Well, it seems like no one else is interested in voting, so Frederick of Brandenburg stands elected with seven votes against five (53% - 47%). BTW, Why the "nay" option? --Galaguerra1 (talk) 16:30, November 8, 2012 (UTC)

Prince Albert of Anhalt

Albert and his nephew, the Elector of Saxony, have been campaigning for the Chancellorship since the Election of the Emperor. He is a capable soldier, and was instrumental in destroying the Anhalt Noble rebellion. He is a loyal Catholic, and is very loyal to the Empire. Disadvantages are his age, he is 64 years old. Another is the fact that he is a vassal of Saxony. However, His Serene Highness is willing and ready to serve His Imperial Majesty as Chancellor right until his death, if needs be.

Aye

  • Savoy
  • Naples
  • Saluces
  • Saxony
  • Anhalt

Nay

New Chancellor

Seeing as Frederick of Brandenburg has been assassinated, HSH the Elector of Saxony notes that we are in need of a new Chancellor.

Apparently every state can vote, including Vassals.

(In future, can we pre-select people for the Chancellorship and for the Emperorship? They did so OTL, and it negates the need for loooooong interregnums.) Callumthered (talk) 17:27, November 14, 2012 (UTC)

OK, so, who wins? IMPERIAL NY-SPQR 1Regen Flag Fegelein! Fegelein! Fegelein! 05:11, November 20, 2012 (UTC)

Wilhelm of Brandenburg

Wilhelm II of Brandenburg, son of the late Chancellor, is already acting in the capacity of Acting Chancellor, which he is granted until 1540 if there is no plurality in the voting. He has already completed the colonial negotiations with the rest of the great powers of Europe and has constructively weakened the Erokee people, further allowing room for Holy Roman dominance on the Antillian continent. Wilhelm has also established relations with the Asikag Sogunat (yes, the Europeans shall henceforth spell it like that) and Hindustan, and has gained massive hordes of allies against the Caliphate in case of any future war.

Aye!

The Second Great Holy War (opened by the Imperial Government)

It has come to the attention of the Emperor of Caliphate aggression, several HRE nations are behind a movement to declare war to bring peace and stability. ALL CAN VOTE.

For:

  • Brandenburg
  • Courland
  • Luxembourg

Against:

  • Genoa
  • Milan
  • Saxony
  • Anhalt
  • Archbishopric Magdeburg.

Undecided/Neutral

  • Bavaria

Discussion:

This would, by the way, be an effective way to unite the Empire, and dispel Kappelism - after all, any disputes you two have will be NOTHING compared to the Mutual hatred of Islam.

Saxony

Dear fellow Electors, but especially the Chancellor,

It seems to be that the recent laws in Saxony regarding Kappelists have been interpreted the wrong way throughout the Empire, and I wish to rectify the mistake.

If one carefully reads through the law, it requires all practicing Kappelists to pay a tax, and also denies them congregations of over 20 people.

These laws are designed to destroy Kappelism through stealth and economics, as opposed to mass-killings and inquisitions, which Saxony feels it is above. The laws have already begun to take their toll on the already small Kappelist minority, and it is estimated that their population will be negligible within ten years.

The Elector has always stood by his faith in the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church, and should by no means be considered a heretic, or a supporter of the heresy. He just wants to destroy it with the least possible bloodshed and preferably without a civil war.

In conclusion, could Saxony's name be struck off the list of nations to invade (as Bavaria's has been)?

Regards, HSH Frederick III, Elector of Saxony.. Callumthered (talk) 06:15, November 20, 2012 (UTC)

Election of the new Emperor (Opened by Milan) (CLOSED)

The last Emperor died long time ago. Now it's time to vote the new Emperor.

Louis IX of Luxembourg

Louis IX is a staunch Catholic and promises not to be a do nothing and secretly tells the Catholic states that he will open a war against Kappelism. He has also eradicated Kappelism from his state and shall implement this in other states. Russia supports him in his endeavours. AND, IF WE DON'T GO TO WAR, THE MODS WILL MAKE US GO TO WAR AND WE WILL BE SCREWWWWWWWWWWWWED!

  • Saxony (Can Anhalt and the Archbishopric of Magdeburg vote for him as well?) (Sorry mate, but I had a prior agreement with Savoy Callumthered (talk))
  • Tragic.
  • (This voting is for everyone.)
  • Anhalt
  • Magdeburg
  • Brandenburg, by order of his Epicness Ludwig (VAN BEETHOVEN!!!!!) II, Prince Elector of said state.
  • Luxembourg, by order of self proclaimed, of Louis IX, Grand Duke of the state given and of its lands.
  • Courland, by that of Nicholas of said state.
  • Venice
  • Modena
  • Siena
  • Croatia
  • United Kingdoms of Bavaria and Thuringia (Sorry peeps, I did make a prior deal.)

John of Burgundy

John has been an active Catholic, yet he has managed to keep peace in his lands (with three different religious forces (Catholicism, Kappelism and Orthodox Catholicism (the heretic Catholicism from the beginning of the game)) and during his reign Burgundy has managed to get some peace, and relative power, as well as the power of the Pope over his Duchy. Even though he has fallen ill, the council of Burgundy finds him as a good choice for the title of Emperor of the Roman Empire as anyone.

Scraw don't cross it out. I actually did keep the Orthodox from the first few turns. If you don't believe me watch it for yourself, and if the Mods haven't crossed me out, you can't do it. Also, can I vote for myself or is that forbidden? Never mind...

They never existed during John's rule as they were eradicated before he came to power. Furthermore, that is implausible.

They did. At first the Orthodox from the Canary Islands are from the HRE fleeing from persecution, and they were left alone. Like most of the HRE I wanted peace, the only way to do this is leave them alone unless they mean a threat, same to the Kappelists, ergo no implausibility, especially since no one crossed it out ingame

Leopold of Savoy

Leopold is Catholic and he is against the religious war, but also against Kappelism. He wants to maintain the force of the Empire in order to prevent any Islamic invasion of the borders, he is looking for solutions to many problems in all of Europe.

That's implausible. None of the Catholic leaders want to avoid war.

  • You can't close just like that. Many members are not voting yet. Don't do it again, it's not your page. And yes, in real history many Catholics want to avoid war. We will see in the next years the result of this.
  • We have a majority of electorates and their subordinates, as well as their campaigners, and I have sovereignty; remember I am the interregnum Emperor and interim Chancellor.
  • No, you are the chancellor, nothing more. Relax.
    • I am the interregnum emperor as well. I was the old emperor, so when he died, his son became the acting emperor until we elected a new emperor.
  • I hope this avoids war. Sine dei gloriem (talk) 19:35, December 11, 2012 (UTC)
  • I think it's enough. It's by far that Savoy's Player has won, and if the empire is going to fall, it doesn't matter who starts the war, it's just going to end that way, though I hope it doesn't, Sine dei gloriem (talk) 23:52, December 13, 2012 (UTC)
  • Can we have an emperor? Sine dei gloriem (talk) 00:23, December 14, 2012 (UTC)
  • No one has a plurality of the votes accessible.
  • But you have nine and Savoy has 11-12 with my vassal. I think with that they have won Sine dei gloriem (talk) 00:29, December 14, 2012 (UTC) My concern is that I'm threatening to leave the empire, which I don't want, but if there's no choice I will.
  • This is now closed, every start vote and the majority is for Savoy, so the King of Savoy is the new HRE Emperor. Quiari (talk) 03:38, December 14, 2012 (UTC)S
  • So I, as the only executive officer in the ENTIRE Empire, cannot close voting, but you can? Do you even know how many votes you need?
  • The point is that the rest are NPC nations and other players are AFK so they won't vote and to continue this way is just going to cause the fall of the HRE Sine dei gloriem (talk) 00:20, December 15, 2012 (UTC)
  • You guys don't get the point. This crackhead idea of "tolerance" is implausible right now, and if our EMPEROR does it, our Empire will be destroyed by the mods and we will be gobbled up by France, the Brits, the Muslims, and Russia and we shall all be utterly firetrucked.
  • Russia, not sure. They would side with the Kappelists forming the German Empire or something like that. The Brits and French would side with me, as I'm their ally and the Muslims are the only real threat to the Empire. Even so, it doesn't need to be full tolerance. If not forced tolerance, Kappelists would still hate Catholics and vice versa but do agree that the best chance for them to last is with the HRE.

1556: Another Emperor (opened by Saxony)

If what's posted is true, then the HR Emperor has been assassinated, and we need a new one. 

Also, from now on, can we elect the King of the Romans? (ie: during the final years of an emperor's reign, we elect the successor to avoid lengthy interregnums) Callumthered (talk) 12:11, December 20, 2012 (UTC)

we should, we need to keep someone in the throne to avoid further civil war possibilities Sine dei gloriem (talk) 23:46, December 22, 2012 (UTC)

Listen, whoever's the Emperor needs to announce when he plans to die so we can hold an election ahead of time. Meanwhile let's vote this shit off before we get more screwed! IMPERIAL NY-SPQR 1Regen Flag Fegelein! Fegelein! Fegelein! 02:26, December 23, 2012 (UTC)

A) I don't think Russia will really intervene in the war that tears the HRE apart.

B) If the HRE doesn't declare war on the Kappelists, the mods will tear you all into little pieces. The Royal Guns (talk) 03:04, December 23, 2012 (UTC)

why, im saying im not going to vote Sine dei gloriem (talk) 22:26, December 25, 2012 (UTC)

...And that's against the law. You have to vote if you want to remain as an autonomous state. 

well there are two reason im not going to vote, one, when louis of Luxembourg comes to power im going to leave the empire, and i don't really want keppelist persecution on burgundy, so sorry Sine dei gloriem (talk) 22:29, December 25, 2012 (UTC)

So vote for someone else then. (>.> Derp moment.) IMPERIAL NY-SPQR 1Regen Flag Fegelein! Fegelein! Fegelein! 22:33, December 25, 2012 (UTC)

Also, why are you leaving the Empire? Did we say anything about Kappelist persecution? Are you Kappelist? IMPERIAL NY-SPQR 1Regen Flag Fegelein! Fegelein! Fegelein! 22:36, December 25, 2012 (UTC)

I'm not Kappelist, Catholic, but there's Kappelist inside the Kingdom, and lately being in the empire hasn't been good. Even ifIi weren't injured I could in the future. As well that Kaeppelist persecution is obvious you've always wanted to do so in game That's why everyone else voted last time for the Savoyard Sine dei gloriem (talk) 22:39, December 25, 2012 (UTC)

Your point is? Why don't you just run for Emperor so that everyone can vote for you this time. IMPERIAL NY-SPQR 1Regen Flag Fegelein! Fegelein! Fegelein! 22:41, December 25, 2012 (UTC)

I did last time and most didn't Sine dei gloriem (talk) 22:44, December 25, 2012 (UTC)

Because the other guy was running too. Now, he's not running this time, is he? You run, and everyone votes for you, easily. IMPERIAL NY-SPQR 1Regen Flag Fegelein! Fegelein! Fegelein! 22:51, December 25, 2012 (UTC)

No one voted for me when we were the only two in the elections Sine dei gloriem (talk) 22:54, December 25, 2012 (UTC)

Sine, you may not know this. But if you don't crack down on Kappelism, the mods will tear all of your puny little nations into shreds, then stomp on the shreds until there's nothing left. And then they will do it again, until they get bored. Ad infinitum, or Lurk's-patience-um, anyway. The Royal Guns (talk) 03:48, December 26, 2012 (UTC)

If no one else votes, I'll have to close voting before we get qwgfnewvbed by the mods. IMPERIAL NY-SPQR 1Regen Flag Fegelein! Fegelein! Fegelein! 03:54, December 26, 2012 (UTC)

I'll vote then, for you I guess, but don't expect my full support of any anti-Kappelist campaign Sine dei gloriem (talk) 22:56, December 26, 2012 (UTC)

1581: Election of King of the Romans

With the Emperor scheduled to die in 1583, we need to vite for the King of the Romans (his nominated successor) in order to avoid one of the lengthy interregnums which have become a standard in our empire. 

Also, I think it unfair that some players, myself included, get more votes simply because we wanted to make our conquests into puppet states instead of outright annexing them. Anyway, just my thoughts. Callumthered (talk) 11:48, January 14, 2013 (UTC)

Lord Angelo Benedetti of Savoy, Duca of Piedmont

Virtues

Lord Angelo is the Duca of Piedmont. He is a staunch Catholic and was educated in the famed University of Venice. Angelo has travelled to France, Brandenburg, Bavaria, Scandinavia, the New World and has even visited Asia. His family had fled the Neapolitian union with Savoy to Venice and have become key members of the leadership there. Angelo's father led the Venetian invasion of  Savoy in the war that resulted in Naples' collapse and resettled his family there after the conflict ended. Angelo himself participated in the conquest of Milan and was one of the leaders in taking the city. He now contributes to actively reconverting the Kappelist heretics in his nation of Piedmont, annexed Milan and neighbouring Switzerland. While he possesses many of the key traits of a military leader he also has ensured that food is supplied to the peasants and that the economy runs smoothly. Angelo also actively supports various scientific groups as they attempt to discover more of the world.

Vices

The Lord Angelo is a strong believer in "might is power" and actively encourages wars to settle disputes. The capture and loss of Crete resulted in the death of his only surviving sister and thus he displays open aggression against the Islamic religion. Thus we are led to believe that Angelo will encourge the Doge of Venice to war with the Ottoman Empire soon.
