JoJo's Bizarre Adventure OC Tournament #5: Round 1 Match 9 Isley Vs Rob

The results are in for Match 7…
Black Knight Penitentiary Album’s armor appeared to be rotting away from the inside.
“Oh, god… My master...he warned me that the power of Black Knight Requiem was too much for me… Effie Linder, I know that we… are enemies… but all I ask is that you remember me….”
With that final exhortation, every rat hiding on BKPA’s person exploded in a single, massive crescendo, sending him flying backwards as his acid-armour imploded into innumerable tiny shards. He, of course, knew he would be fine, but might as well play up the drama completely and collect on some life insurance… He had won for certain with this, and in the life ahead, he would be free of that damned axolotl this woman had reminded him of!
“The stars, Effie Linder, do you see them? They’re so… bright…”
Effie, to her credit, simply watched this scene in some disbelief, dumbfounded enough that she had to stop her own destruction to watch. “You… You can’t be serious, right?” She was panting as she spoke. “You’re a real clown, Mr. Album… I can fully understand how you made that funny mascot, now that-”
Effie’s own words, however, were interrupted by the exaggeratedly inelegant sniffling of James Berrett. “What a sacrifice… That even a brute like him could see beauty in the world…” He clapped his hands together a few, slow times, and then sighed. Effie didn’t buy a second of it, smartly enough, deeming him a worse actor than he was a lawyer.
“Don’t encourage him,” Effie said, impatiently, “look, uh… I think we’re out of things to destroy, though, so. Who won?”
“Didn’t I tell you, kid? No hospitals, no hearses…” Ending the theatrics, James calmly strolled across the fields of burning gas as if Effie hadn't said a word, idly removing his checkbook and beginning to consider some numbers, occasionally sticking his thumb out and looking at the others even as he spoke. and walked up next to the young man and layed a comforting hand on his shoulder. “I obviously didn’t mean ‘no limousines,’ yeah? This man just melted before our eyes… Looks like nobody's getting any special bonus today.”
“Wh-what?! But he’s obviously faking it! And why even pull out the-”
“Hey, did I say I wasn’t going to give you anything? You, and Mr. Album’s next-of-kin… You’ll get what you were promised, at least, and you’ll still have my card if you want to contact me again.”
As Effie turned to the man to protest he was just able to see the lawyer pull out a check and slap it in her hand. “With all that taken care of, I suggest you clean yourself up and go tell your friends back at that restaurant of yours that their license will be coming in the mail at… some point. Sooner than later, but you know how it is with mail guys. Have a nice day, kid!”
He paused again, after stopping before the ‘remains’ of the ‘deceased’ knight. “Hell of a dying speech… But you know how it is with these pro wrestling-type stories. I wonder if he won’t turn out alive after all, or just wounded… Better be quick about it if by some miracle he is! After all, being legally dead is a way bigger pain than the money’s worth, even if you think you have a plan to make it all work. If you’re waiting at the Pearly Gates, Mr. Album, I strongly advise you to think firmly about your next actions.”
Album wanted to say something now, realizing that his little stunt had cost him the victory, but hey… It had cost his opponent the victory too! Yes! When someone else loses, I’ve basically won! I’ve done so much damage, and wasted this girl’s time! The Black Knight Penitentiary Album wins completely!
The “winner” is James Berret, using the tying Effie Linders 67 to Black Knight Penitentiary Album’s 67 to get away without spilling info! But hey, at least you both get paid!

“Wait… Just answer me one thing, at least. Besides all the money… Why here, in particular? This place feels… Too perfect, for it to just be about smashing buildings. I’m sure I can’t get your client’s name out of you, but… What was this for?”
James smirked. “Would you believe me if I told you someone wants to build a park?”
“A… A park.”
“Yes, with flowers, and trees, and maybe a swingset and such. Are you not familiar over in your neck of the city? I must be going now, though… It’s rare that I have busy days, but this sure is one.”
Leaving Effie to do nothing but stand there stunned, the lawyer walked away, and before she could pursue, what looked to be floating discs covered in reflective glass appeared out the corner of her vision, and James Berrett was gone.
Feeling around for the smashed remains of his scooter, inching away from the scene with a comically loud creaking, Penitentiary Album, too, fled while Effie’s back was turned.
Gotta get back to the base before I’m witnessed! BKPA thought, internally, I wonder, though… Should I commit to this after all? I guess I still have time to decide..!
As a match plays out here, there is still time yet to vote in the battle at a baseball field between an Irish priest and a Japanese vigilante-chef.
Scenario
??? - Somewhere in the Midnight Sun “College Town”
“You want me to… Shadow you?”
Aaron Kirk was confused by the request of his less charismatic new boss, but at the same time, not necessarily distrusting, per se. From the few interactions before now they had had, he seemed the sort to need it.
“Yes, exactly,” answered Theodore Lloyd, the new Dean of the Midnight Sun College of the Arts, in a somewhat dry, tired tone, quiet yet patient. “I’m not the most… outspoken, of persons, but as I am certain you’ve surmised, I’ve inherited more with my new position than just filling out paperwork for art students. It’s more than I’d like to do, to be honest… I sort of felt like I had to fill this spot, but there’s things I’d rather be studying. By making you my plus-one, I’m basically hoisting off work I’d rather not deal with, but I will make it worth your while.”
The artist thought over those words for a time, surveying the thirty-something who had replaced Professor Tiffany. He was everything his predecessor wasn’t; he was short, clad in a yellow casual suit and tie, cheap-looking, and atop his face were a yellow aviator hat and rectangular glasses. Most would say he looked old, but Aaron knew what stress could do to a person, and it was more likely he just only really did what he needed to look presentable.
“I’ll… Consider it. I won’t just blindly accept something before I really understand what you’re asking.”
Professor Lloyd nodded. “Of course… I’m about done for the day until this evening’s Board meeting, so while we’re talking, care to walk around town a bit? Worst comes to worst, it’ll be good for you to see around…”
University Town - Midnight Sun College of the Arts: An exhibit close to Downtown
Oh, wow, oh, wow. Isley Öldman was positively amazed to finally get a chance to see this thing, but up close and personal, the Fortuna Antikythera was all it had been said to be.
The world’s historic community had naturally been skeptical when, in the early 1990s, a submarine crew claimed to have been trying to chart the outskirts of the water when remains of an enormous, rusted-over machine allegedly rammed into the ship, forcing its members to surface and take to salvaging the thing. To their alarm, however, the materials and craftsmanship had certainly dated back hundreds, perhaps thousands of years, and when restored by the boundless paychecks of a regional philanthropist, dated back to the era of Alexander the Great!
Though the size of a small room when fully assembled, and bearing different markings, the mechanisms, in turn, were definitely similar to the famous and speculated-upon Antikythera Machine, discovered in Greece at the turn of the 20th century, hence the name: Fortuna Antikythera.
As children and teenagers took photos and selfies with it, Isley needed to hold back the urge to throw himself at the massive mystery of busted machinery and see if he couldn’t get his Stand to make it tick like it used to… If there was ever a time where it ticked, anyway.
God, this was so, so amazing, seeing a piece of fantastic OOPArt like this so close, he was absolutely giddy with excitement! Before the old man knew it, he was beginning to reach forward, and-”
“Please don’t touch that, sir.”
Isley froze, grimacing with embarrassment at the voice behind his back, the dry tone betraying the drab appearance of the yellow-clad man who spoke to him, and his blond-haired company, simply observing for the most part, though certainly interested in the piece of ancient machinery as well.
“Ahah, sorry… At my age, sometimes you see something and everything but ‘go for it’ just goes. I am an antiquarian myself, and I assure you, even if I had made this faux-pas, it wouldn’t have ended in a damaged piece of equipment…”
“You don’t need to over-explain, sir,” the man accompanying the quiet Dean said next, having a certain… Hard to place air about him, “we get it, really. Honestly, looking at this thing myself awakens something in me… Hard to place. But there just is something about the texture of this kind of stuff, that even if you know you’re not supposed to touch, it’s… It’s tempting.”
“Don’t encourage him, Aaron,” the man Isley did not know was Dean Lloyd said, already a bit exasperated. “Whatever you’re thinking, sir, you won’t be able to restore it. If anyone could, we wouldn’t have it out here in the open. Professor Management would be more than a little annoyed if someone messed it up, though, and I would really rather not see her mad… When the nice ones get mad, it’s the most troubling.”
Isley and Aaron both blinked, neither really getting what the hell he was going on about… Aaron hadn’t met this woman yet, so he didn’t really have a context for her behavior, and Isley had even less, having only sort of heard about the woman from her impressive publications on urban geography and history, but at least being well-versed enough to think he might like to pick this woman’s brain himself.
“Right…” Aaron answered, “I guess I’ll just content myself reflecting on the sculptures they’re making in my Summer workshop… Really nice stuff, there. Sure, it’s not the most highbrow stuff ever, but the change of pace is… Nice.”
“I can imagine, for those with an eye for that sort of thing…” Lloyd’s stomach growled. “I just realized I’ve forgotten to eat… Should we get lunch?”
“Sounds like a plan… Er, nice meeting you, Mister…”
“Öldman.” Isley answered, feeling a little bit like a third wheel in these others’ conversation.
“Öldman! Let’s talk art sometime, yeah?”
“I would love to.”
As the pair left, Isley was filled with some contemplation for himself. I’m not really one to follow the modern arts, but I think that guy was famous or something… They did a whole bit on him on Your Reality. If he’s overseeing a sculpting workshop, even if formalized classes are out right now… Well, it’s hardly antiques, but even this giant metal wonder was a piece of brand new technology one day! Maybe it would make a nice change of pace, to take a look and see if anyone’s left out any of what might become the antiques my successors fawn over…
Taking a different route from the other two, he headed towards the art school buildings, in the meantime looking around for any flyers advertising where exactly this workshop could be found, roomwise.
Elsewhere in the College Town - By the André Tifáni Memorial Self-sculpture: “A Century of Guidance”
The heat in the Industrial District was getting to be a little much, what with the recent spike in the armed conflicts that seemed to happen regularly between the various parties vying for their version of control over the region.
“Rob Zombie” wasn’t normally the type to live in fear of this ebb and flow, and in fact his team typically faced this head on, but it had gotten really intense lately, and he just wanted to grill, for God’s sake. Heaven forbid he get pressed by those gun-toting freaks for operating without a license, or harassed up by some ANVIL toughs because he’s operating outside their rule, and either way draw undue investigation into their guerrilla beautification efforts. No, instead he could take his car elsewhere and spread the good word through good food!
From there, the College town was the obvious choice. Less competitive than Agora Row or Sound’s Garden, closer than anywhere worth selling in the Waterfront or the A-D, Downtown was kinda almost as bad with the council chairman hyping up its police right now as his home region was with VALKYRIE, the Slums were quiet now but might be more trouble than they were worth, and fuck Aurelio. If he chose the right campus, then (art students are always hungry and half-crazed, right? And they care about shit!), surely he’d attract the right foot traffic, too!
…this was a fine way to realize that Spring 20XX classes let out midway through last May. Still, though, the masochistic motherfuckers willing to put themselves through a truncated summer semester would surely be ravenous enough to not even care their eats, cheaper than overpriced college cafeteria food (and better-tasting too, as long as he didn’t set up shop by the Culinary academy), literally came off the back of the car of some dude who lived in a bus in one of the most remote, nastiest, most dangerous parts of the city. Hell, if they knew about that Elephant place in the Slums, they might see the sketchy rattiness of it all as a plus, not a minus!
“Wh-whoa, taste the food, yeah? Taste it!” He tried to reassure the young woman before him, who had seemed such a demure girl, neat brown hair, pretty black minidress, fur vest, only to absolutely fucking scarf down some of the most carb-heavy choices on his menu and down it with the contents of a large bottle filled with what smelled like three different flavors of the same energy drink. “You can take five minutes to just enjoy your food, you know..!”
“Thank you for the food, cannot talk, time is wasting..!” In some kinda accent, the student spoke before just bolting off towards one of the class buildings, and “Rob” just blinked a few times, watching her hoisting an overloaded tote bag behind her, brimming with assorted supplies, a truly monolithic textbook, and an expensive-looking laptop, and managing to precariously balance the rest of her order among the clutter. It was sort of amazing, in its own way, that she managed to fit the whole bag in there.
He shook his head at that. Dang Zoomers… Got their whole lives ahead of ‘em, and they think the only thing there is to do is rush it. Well, if you rush forward, you get to the end faster, I like to say.
“-lling you, having spent basically my life in New York, sometimes the best places to eat are the shady-looking ones, the kind half the people talking me up back out there would not be caught dead at. See how that guy’s got a line?”
“Yes, you’re not the first person to give me this life advice…” Two men around the same age as “Rob” were talking, and entered his earshot speaking like that. Promising; men of taste! The one in the yellow cheap suit glanced uncomfortably at the statue of the dead artist guy for a moment, then shook his head. “It does smell nice, I suppose… If we run into Cavallo, though, do the three of us all a favor and don’t mention where we’ve stopped.”
The men, then, received their orders soon enough, and took to small talk all the while. One thing led to another, and again, the sculpting room came up, and this time, how one particular student with an annoying-sounding prep-ass name had taken to painstakingly making a sculpture of the head councilor of the city. This Aaron guy sounded like he had a little bit of a chip on his shoulder about the council chairman for some reason, and that bringing him up might have sort of killed the illusion for him that he was having a good day, but “Rob” didn’t know the personal reason the man had for taking issue with the speech the councilman had given.
“Rob Zombie” didn’t even need a reason to resent the guy, though.
North Island PD got their heads inflated so much by that speech, where all he did was downtalk this place, word it like praise, and give lip service to the guys who keep it down… He’s fake as shit, and probably doing it on purpose, I bet. I have half a mind to smash this stupid pandering project before he ever sees it.
Not long after, in a different building from where the inevitable fight started…
Aaron blinked, feeling around at his pocket. “…shit. Did I leave my classroom keys in my office? Hope I at least locked up…”
“Happens to us all…” Lloyd answered. “Let’s go check, I suppose… As you can clearly tell, I am extremely energized right now, so more walking is fine.”
The Sculpting Room in question…
Approaching from opposite sides of the same hall, Isley and “Rob” nearly bumped into one another.
“Ah, sorry..!” Isley said, backing up and nodding his head politely for the younger man, “after you!”
“Rob” nodded, making his way in before holding the door open casually for the idly ‘thank you’-ing Isley. “Didn’t expect to see anyone else over here! You one of the ones doin’, uh, that Kirk guy’s workshop?”
Isley shook his head, making his way in as the door shut behind him. “No, no, I was simply curious after hearing it spoken of, and thought, hey, maybe it will be unlocked, and I can look at what is inside!” He chuckled a bit, peering around now. “And… Here I am, and I am doing that! Lovely setup here… I’m not well-versed in this sort of thing, but you can just tell this is a state-of-the-art facility. Look at these materials..!”
“Are you an art buff, then?” “Rob” asked, himself looking around now, trying to find what he had been looking for at a similarly leisurely pace.
“Not especially, but I thought I might broaden my horizons, see what people are making that will remain in the future! I’m in antiquing, normally, even run a shop out in Aurelio, but antiques were contemporary art once, yes?”
“Never thought of it that way,” “Rob” answered, genuinely perplexed. “I’m in food service myself, do a bit of activism stuff on the side… But good food and bringing good smiles are art forms too, yeah?”
“Of course! Of course!” Isley enthusiastically agreed, feeling he might have just struck up a new friendship. There was no way he wouldn’t hit it off with someone who agrees that caring for people and being good to them is the best thing a person can do, right?
Click-chunk!
Both of their eyes, then, turned towards the door, which had just made the distinct sound of locking, followed by something sounding like it had given.
Blue, closer to the door, ran towards it then, grasping at it and grunting. “Dammit- this thing has an inside lock, but it’s not… Budging!” He grunted and sighed, even trying to stealthily produce the hands of his stand failing to budge this door which absolutely wasn’t this much of a problem before. Was this the attack of an enemy Stand? If so, then just busting it down might have been dangerous to attempt…
“So we’ve been locked in, hm?” Isley asked, frowning himself now. He noticed that a messed-up looking hand briefly emerged from his companion’s wrist and joined it jostling the doorknob, and from there, began to suspect much the same. “Well, it could be with worse company. Let’s just call for help, and be on the lookout.”
“Yeah…” “Rob” sighed, pulling away and walking around, and as he did, he found himself eye-level with it.
Elaborate, muscular, but with that exact face, was a clay sculpture of that fucking guy, Councilman Wedding March, looking like he was holding up the city like Atlas on his back. It was the most finished thing in the room, so deeply detailed, clearly made by a better artist than anything else in this workshop, that it only annoyed him even more.
Well, he may as well at least do what he came here to do. This old guy seemed a decent sort, so surely he wouldn’t disagree with smashing an effigy to terrible taste.
Smoldering chunks of clay came crashing down on the ground, and Isley made an inhuman sound at the sight. “Wh-what are you doing?! That’s the nicest thing here!!”
“Did you see who it is? Made by an absolute bootlicker.”
“Art is art… Something of that quality could have lasted centuries!” Isley ran over now, his own Stand emerging and moving to try and repair it. His Stand typically worked by making something an older version of itself, if not its most known and most famous, so he wasn’t sure if this would work or not, but he had to try to save tomorrow’s antique, at least.
…“Rob” was almost amused, then, when rather than the form of what the statue was previously doing, it instead became a damned Terracotta Warrior, though still with March’s face on it.
“Nnngh… It’s been ruined… I’ve never tried it on a new sculpture, but now we’ve ruined it..!”
“I dunno, it looks more complete now,” “Rob” answered, growing less patient quickly with his new friend. “Maybe I could ruin it again, though… Think if we try it again enough times, it’ll go back to that pretentious Atlas crap?”
“You’re making light of this… Making light of antiques now, too!” Isley backed away somewhat, staring down “Rob” with much less of the friendliness of before. “I am not an easy man to cross, sir, but you really have vexed me!”
“Guess that makes two of us,” “Rob” answered, posing and staring the old man down. “And here I thought we might make good friends… Those were a nice fleeting few moments.”
OPEN THE GAME!
Location: Inside a sculpting classroom at Midnight Sun College of the Arts. The area shown here is only 25 meters long and 50 meters wide, with each tile being 5 meters long. The characters are denoted by circle tokens in their respective team colors with Isley in the bottom left and Rob in the bottom right. The ceiling is about 7 meters above you and matches up with the ceiling seen in the first image.
On the left side are tables denoted by rectangles with pottery on them as depicted by the upside-down trapezoids. The circles next to the tables are stools.
The line marked purple rectangles are 4 meter tall shelves with pottery wheels, clay, gloves, paint, sculpting tools, safety goggles and anything else needed to make pottery or sculptures.
In the top right corner of the map are tarps represented by the overlapping green shapes.
The orange semi-circles are sculptures, mostly finished and having vaguely humanoid bodies. Each sculpture is roughly eye level with the players.
The players are both locked in the room. Please don’t break the door down.
Goal: RETIRE your opponents!
Additional Information: Due to it technically being Summer vacation, foot traffic in the halls outside is scarce; don’t expect anyone but the two of you to be anywhere in the proximity. Those full-time students gruellingly subjecting themselves to summer semesters instead of enjoying their months off are sequestered far away in their self-inflicted hells, and foot traffic doesn’t generally head this way around this time unless people need these rooms for something.
Let the record show that the unnamed, plot-irrelevant artist whose sculpture was ruined in the writeup did, in fact, totally deserve it.
Team Combatant JoJolity
Suburban Regalia Isley Öldman “That form of Buccelati was not sculpted by me, and it was not sculpted by your bullets, either..” This guy is half your age and talking like he knows what he’s doing; you may be an antiquist, but you can appreciate the importance of art, too. Over the course of the match, use what you have available to create a piece of artwork of your own.
Underground Exodus "Rob Zombie" “The one thing I, Kishibe Rohan, like more than anything else is finding people who think they’re hot shit and saying no to their faces.” You can do way better than some random guy way too fond of the man. Over the course of the match, use what you have available to you to create a piece of artwork of your own.

Covid-19 update Tuesday March 17th

Good morning from the UK. Happy St Patricks day. It'll be a woeful one for many Irish people around the world with pubs and bars shut in multiple US states, several European countries, several Asian countries and worst of all, Ireland itself. Here in the UK you can still go to the pub, although as of late yesterday afternoon the UK government advised against it says the BBC.

Virus statistics
Several comments from redditors in past days complained the WHO stats I C&P'd did not come very close to reflecting stats being quoted by national media wherever they lived. As a result, I'm abandoning the WHO stats and going back to the John Hopkins University tracker stats for all countries. If it's good enough for the likes of Forbes, Business Insider, FT, USA Today to regularly cite it then it's good enough for me:-

Region Today (John Hopkins Stats at time of writing) Yesterday (John Hopkins stats not the WHO's) % daily change
Global 182,424 169,387 +7.7%
China 81,053 81,020 +0.4%
Italy 27,980 24,747 +13.1%
Iran 14,991 13,938 +7.6%
Spain 9,942 7,844 +26.7%
South Korea 8,320 8,162 +1.9%
Germany 7,272 5,813 +25.1%
France 6,655 5,437 +22.4%
USA 4,661 3,774 +23.5%
Switzerland 2,330 2,200 +5.9%
UK 1,553 1,395 +11.3%
Netherlands 1,414 1,136 +24.5%
Norway 1,347 1,256 +7.2%
Sweden 1,121 1,032 +8.6%
Belgium 1,058 886 +19.4%
Austria 1,018 860 18.4%

All other countries with under 1000 identified infections not listed (sorry Denmark), yesterday's threshold was 750. Total countries infected worldwide = 155, an increase from yesterday of 9. Source for all countries (as discussed above): the John Hopkins University dashboard (Link). (Personal note: Western countries infection counts are increasing each day much faster than Asian countries but that may be due to cultural differences or it may be that they're doing my testing, if anyone can shed light on this please do).
Reminder, these are identified case counts and medical experts are reporting this virus has a long incubation period with people being infections despite displaying no symptoms; the true infection figures are likely to be much higher. Note that some countries are reporting shortages of test kits which further skews the data available; assume true cases are much higher.
Finally, no, I don't believe China's official statistics either.

Selected Virus news

Warnings of shortages of regeants (ingredients) to make test kits in the US - the Fool (a high quality finance website despite the name) reports that FDA Commissioner Stephen Hahn stated last week in testimony before a U.S. House of Representatives appropriations subcommittee that there could be supply chain issues with reagents needed for novel coronavirus diagnostic kits. He noted that the supply issues specifically apply to RNA used in testing for coronavirus disease COVID-19.

Shortages in US supermarkets likely to continue until panic buying eases - The LA Times says that shortages will continue until people calm down in their shopping habits. The major chains usually get shipments overnight, or perhaps twice a day, to restock essentials such as paper towels, toilet paper and water, but “manufacturers in some cases are having trouble keeping up, and that’s where the void is, they’re not able to keep up with demand,” said Bob Reeves, vice president for the West at the Shelby Report, a research firm that tracks the grocery industry. “We’re seeing shipments coming into the stores sometimes without any of those products, and it will be like that until people calm down a little bit,” he said. In some cases, chains are sending their delivery trucks directly to manufacturers — bypassing warehouses and distributors — to get the items to the stores faster. (Personal note: the same applies for all supermarket supply chains globally)

Pa. hospitals are rationing protective gear as the number of coronavirus cases grows - (Personal note, this is an example, there seems to be a general global shortage of medical PPE (personal protective equipment) - The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that hospitals across Pennsylvania are drastically limiting the use of key protective gear out of fears that a dramatic increase in coronavirus cases could diminish reserves and cause a dangerous shortage. The rationing comes as the state Department of Health maintains that it has personal protective equipment available and is working with health systems to make sure they have what they need. The gear includes eye protection, gowns, and N95 respirators, which are essential in preventing a health care worker from breathing in infectious particles when in close contact with someone who has COVID-19. In Philadelphia, two doctors who work at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania said it’s barring the use of N95 respirators “except in extraordinarily limited situations.” Penn Medicine declined to comment. Another city doctor, Daphne Owen, said in a tweet Thursday her clinic “for uninsured and undocumented patients” was out of masks. Two days later, the clinic, Puentes de Salud, said it was closed due to the pandemic.

Other Virus news in brief
- The Scottish courts and tribunals announced today that no new criminal jury trials would be commenced or new juries empanelled until further notice.
- Iran has temporarily freed a total of 85,000 prisoners, including political prisoners, a spokesman for its judiciary said on Tuesday, adding that the prisons were responding to the threat of a coronavirus epidemic in jails.
- Britain had “no time to lose” in changing tactics in order to prevent thousands of deaths and the NHS being overwhelmed, scientists providing guidance to the UK government have said. The Imperial College Covid-19 response team – which is one of several scientific teams advising UK ministers – published a paper (I've put it in the addendum below) showing that 250,000 people could die if efforts were focused only on delaying and slowing down the spread of Covid-19.Separately, England’s deputy chief medical officer, Prof Jonathan Van-Tam, could not rule out the strict measures having to last for a year but predicted they would last at least “several months“.
- Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs has advised Australians to return home as soon as possible by commercial means because overseas travel is becoming “more complex and difficult” as countries impose travel restrictions and close their borders.
- Leaders of EU states were expected on Tuesday to suspend all travel into the passport-free Schengen zone by non-EU nationals for at least 30 days in a bid to instil uniformity across the bloc after some member states, including Austria, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Poland, unilaterally began imposing border checks.
- China has issued an angry reaction (by diplomatic standards) to the US president Donald Trump’s characterisation of the disease as “the Chinese virus.” (he tweeted late last night "The United States will be powerfully supporting those industries, like Airlines and others, that are particularly affected by the Chinese Virus. We will be stronger than ever before!"). China’s foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said the US president should take care of his own matters first and not seek to “stigmatise” China.
- The postponement of soccer’s Euro 2020 Championship may already have been decided after Uefa last week cancelled its hotel bookings in Copenhagen.
- The UK just advised its citizens against all non essential travel worldwide in the past 10 minutes
- Mobile phone networks are struggling in some areas of the UK with significantly increased demands according to down detector. For sure a lot of people seem to be home working, my commute in this morning was like it was the middle of August and everyone else was on holiday.
- Alitalia, the Italian airline flag carrier is to be renationalised by Italy
- Cinema chains are closing in multiple countries due to shutdowns
- Kazakhstan is closing down its two largest cities (despite only having 32 cases so far)
- A preliminary calculation by a US expert suggests that tens of thousands of premature deaths from air pollution may have been avoided by the cleaner air in China, far higher than the 3,208 coronavirus deaths.
- Jordan: the army has said it will deploy at entrances and exits of main cities in the kingdom in a move officials said was ahead of an imminent announcement of a state of emergency to combat the spread of coronavirus.
- In a joint statement, Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Microsoft, Reddit and YouTube said they would help ensure people could stay connected to each other during isolation as well as fight any misinformation and fraud linked to the outbreak. “We are working closely together on Covid-19 response efforts,” the statement said. “We’re helping millions of people stay connected while also jointly combating fraud and misinformation about the virus, elevating authoritative content on our platforms, and sharing critical updates in co-ordination with government healthcare agencies around the world.
- Almost all Germans shops are about to close by government decree; supermarkets, pharmacies will remain open (including on Sundays when they are usually closed). Separately, government press briefings there have gone online only.
- Olympic organisers in Japan are asking people not to create crowds along the route of the Olympic torch relay and not to gather near the route if they feel sick. A Boeing aircraft flew to Greece on 15 March to bring the torch to Japan.
- France: No movement allowed except for essential work or health reasons. “There can be no more outside meetings, no more seeing family or friends on the street or in the park. We must slow the spread of this virus by limiting the number of people we are in contact with each day to the strict minimum. If we do not, we endanger the lives of those we hold dear.” said the French President Macron.
- Israel’s government has approved emergency measures to track people suspected or confirmed to have been infected with the coronavirus by monitoring their mobile phones, immediately raising privacy concerns in the country. The cabinet unanimously approved the use of the technology, developed initially for counter-terrorism purposes, in the early hours of Tuesday morning. The Association for Civil Rights in Israel said providing the country’s internal security agency, the Shin Bet, with new secretive powers was a “dangerous precedent and a slippery slope that must be approached and resolved after much debate and not after a brief discussion”.
- Indonesian president Joko Widodo said on Saturday that he had withheld some information about cases to prevent the country from panicking, the Jakarta Post reported. He has rejected calls for a lockdown to be imposed on hard hit areas.
- Malaysia has announced it's closing its borders prompting neighbouring Singapore's citizens to panic buy (90% of their food is imported from Malaysia).
- New Zealand on Tuesday deported its first unruly traveller flouting the country’s mandatory 14-day self-isolation rule for almost all arrivals, the health ministry said. The tourist, who had checked into a backpackers hostel in the city of Christchurch, was removed from the accommodation by the police after officials learned she did not have clear self-isolation plans.

Economics

Goldman Sachs doesn't think the stock market drops have finished - BusinessInsider says that Goldman Sachs thinks that the S&P 500 might plunge as low as 2,000 before recovering through the rest of the year, the investment bank wrote Friday. The level is the benchmark index's lowest since early 2016 and implies a 20% decline from Monday's open. Such a tumble would also place the index more than 40% below its February 19 peak. The coronavirus outbreak is responsible for "unprecedented financial and societal disruption," the analysts said, and equities have so far served as accurate leading indicators before the release of relevant earnings or macroeconomic data. That said, the analysts pointed out that "The lesson of prior event-driven bear markets is that financial devastation ultimately allows a new bull market to be born,".

U.S. factories are likely to close because of the coronavirus’ supply-chain shock - Marketwatch reports (link) that there is a very real chance that companies from auto makers to electronics manufacturers will soon begin to cease or limit production. With a downed China as the headstream of global manufacturing, mercantile America simply can’t function as it’s accustomed to. We’re starting to see this happen in official reports: The New York Fed’s Empire State business conditions index, released Monday, plunged by a record 34.4 points to minus 21.5 in March. And Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said Sunday he expects a contraction in GDP in the second quarter. (Personal note: I expect similar problems across all G20 countries). The article goes on to explain that many supply chain directors may understand their first tier suppliers but often do not have full visibility of the status of their 2nd or 3rd tier suppliers

Supply impact of the coronavirus outbreak is waning, but demand shock will linger, economist says - CNBC says that in January and February, industrial output fell by 13.5% from the same period a year earlier, the weakest reading since January 1990 — when Reuters' record began. China's industrial production is likely to improve in March over a slump in January and February due to the coronavirus outbreak, but consumer demand will take longer to recover both in the country and globally, an economist said Monday. "We will see some recovery, but this recovery, I think, is being undermined by the global spread as well," said Bo Zhuang, chief China economist at TS Lombard. Meanwhile, retail sales in January and February shrank 20.5% from a year ago, compared with a 8% growth in December as fearful consumers avoided crowded places like malls, restaurants and cinemas. "We were worried about supply-side issues, but now it's becoming a demand shock issue," said Zhuang. Smaller outfits like restaurants and service-oriented businesses have "resumed work but there are no customers," said Zhuang. "I think we are going to see a delayed V-shape (recovery), and this V may be a tilted V or W, or even U. We are not sure," he added.

Coronavirus Impacts Every Sector of the Supply Chain - Supply and demand chain executive reports that the global supply chain continues to experience disruption. "We have seen that in the way that it’s spreading across into different hubs where we see alternative routes to be overly burdened, such as the rail system,” says Koray Köse of Gartner. “Now with the crisis and the hubs being closed and product movements are still active to some extent, but not necessarily from those regions, will become crowded and impacted. This means that there’s an additional strain on the overall network to move material.” Some products have experienced significant upticks including Chicken noodle soup (+37%), Hand sanitizer (+65%), Disinfecting Wipes: (+353%) and Cold & Flu medications (+197%) amongst others.

Coronavirus pandemic worse than 1997 financial crisis, Malaysian ex-PM Mahathir warns - The Strait times reports on Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, the former premier who steered Malaysia's recovery from the 1997 Asian financial crisis, expects the current coronavirus pandemic to hit the global economy even harder. "This is worse than the financial crisis," he said in a Bloomberg Television interview. "This is really a terrible blow to the economies of the whole world." Dr Mahathir joins other world leaders in warning that the virus impact may be worse than past periods of upheaval (Personal note: I pointed out yesterday the NZ PM also saying this).

Supply chain news relating to Covid-19

For Global Supply Chains the Worst Is Yet to Come - Supply Chain Management review says (Link) that most industrial companies have 30-60 days of parts and raw materials either on hand, in-transit, or obtainable on short notice. After these supplies run out, we will start to see shortages of finished products as well as parts needed to produce other goods. Shortages will start to become more evident toward the end of March and beginning of April. Production in some non-Chinese factories will have to be put on hold for lack of parts. Partially finished products will remain in suspension until all parts are available to build finished products. Some companies are pressing their engineers to redesign parts that can be sourced in the U.S., or at least outside of China. Other companies are giving 3D printing a serious try for the first time. The article goes on to point out delays in sea freight ex-Asia and extremely high airfreighting costs are exacerbating the situation.

U.S. Suspends Truck-Driving Limits to Speed Coronavirus Shipments - The Wall Street Journal reports as of 2 days ago that maximum working hours for truck drivers in the US have been suspended. This applies to truck drivers moving emergency supplies such as medical equipment, hand sanitizer and food in response to the nationwide coronavirus outbreak. It comes as hospitals report shortages of medical masks and as retailers and manufacturers are straining under surging demand for everything from hand sanitizer to staples such as toilet paper and rice. As anxious consumers stockpile goods, grocers have turned to rationing, imposing purchase limits on disinfectant wipes, cleaning supplies and other high-demand products. The move is the first time the FMCSA has issued nationwide-wide relief from hours-of-service regulations, although regional declarations have waived those rules in response to disasters such as hurricanes. Federal regulations limit most commercial truck drivers to 11 hours of driving time in a 14-hour workday, restrictions intended to reduce accidents caused by highway fatigue.

For supply chain companies, U.S.-Mexico border closures could be catastrophic - Marketplace points out that Mexico’s deputy health minister says he’s worried about people coming into Mexico from the United States; currently the U.S. has far more cases of COVID-19 than Mexico. The Mexican government even said it might consider restricting access at its northern borders. For businesses that operate on both sides of the border, any shutdown could be catastrophic. The article gives a case study of a manfacturer employing 150 people in Texas. The company president says before anyone considers closing the border, President Donald Trump and Mexico’s president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, should discuss a coordinated response to the virus. As for now, he says all of his people can work from home, if the situation calls for it. Everyone here has a laptop, he said. But he says the independent truck drivers and contractors who work on the loading docks, they have to be on site to run things. Those people also only get paid if they show up for work. So, for now, they’re glad the COVID-19 hasn’t shut this part of Texas down, yet.

It won't be long before Coronavirus shuts down local African supply chains - The major Kenyan newspaper daily nation reports that there are imminent difficulties facing Kenyan pharma firms due to the industry importing 70% of its ingredients from India and China, both of whom have restricted exports. Studies show that the Kenyan pharmaceuticals market is worth Sh100 billion ($965m USD), 80 per cent of which is prescription drugs. Although Kenya exports 50 per cent to the COMESA region and 75 per cent to East African Community, most of these exports are re-exports from India and China.

European automotive factories shutting down - Ferrari and Lamborghini have both suspended almost all production (says the Express and Star) whilst Yahoo Finance reports that Fiat Chrysler said in a statement on Monday 16 March that it would halt operations at most of its European plants, from now until 27 March because of an “interruption in market demand.” The Italian-American automotive group said the manufacturing stop includes six factories in Italy, the EU country worst hit by coronavirus. Italy has had over 24,700 infection cases so far, and more than 1,800 people have died from the virus. The PSA group, which includes Peugeot, Citroen, and Opel, said today it will close all its European plants, including in the UK, France and Germany for the remainder of the month too. German car giant Volkswagen is also suspending production at a number of manufacturing bases in Europe, including in Slovakia and Spain. VW-owned Seat has shuttered its main factory near Barcelona for at least the rest of the month. Meanwhile, according to the Financial Times, Volkswagen may also be forced to curtail production at the main factory in its home town of Wolfsburg, because of running low on parts.

Good news section
Amazon to hire 100,000 more workers and give raises to current staff to deal with coronavirus demands - CNBC says that Amazon is hiring an additional 100,000 employees in the U.S. to meet the surge in demand from online shopping amid the coronavirus outbreak, the company said Monday. The company is looking to add extra full-time and part-time positions for warehouse and delivery workers. Through the end of April, it will raise pay for these employees by $2 per hour in the U.S., £2 per hour in the UK, and approximately €2 per hour in many EU countries. Amazon currently pays $15 per hour or more in some areas of the U.S. for warehouse and delivery jobs. Amazon encouraged employees in other industries whose jobs were "lost or furloughed" as a result of the coronavirus to apply, including members of the hospitality, restaurant and travel industries. "We want those people to know we welcome them on our teams until things return to normal and their past employer is able to bring them back," the company added.

Educating in denial older relatives anecdote
Personal story time; my 69 year old Aunt is very grumpy because despite me telling her for well over a month, it is finally dawning on her that her dream guided coach bus tour of the West USA national parks in 10 weeks time is rapidly going up in smoke whilst my 75 year old Dad has realised his third cruise of the year (this time around the med) in 5 weeks time is also about to be toast. My Aunt complained on Facebook yesterday that nobody is mentioning the 46,000 people who have recovered from the illness and that "it's just a bit of flu". It isn't, otherwise governments around the world would not be reacting as they are.
If you have an elderly relative like mine who relies far too much on social media anecdotes rather than good quality fact based mainstream media, maybe point them at this businessinsider article here where it points out that 1) flu mortality rates are 0.1% vs. Covid-19 is 3.4% and 2) for 70-79 the mortality rate is 8% and for over 80's it's 14.8%. Hopefully they might just realise the seriousness of the situation; my Aunt dismissed it as "a website I've never heard of and won't believe" despite the article clearly citing CDC figures.

More episode premise ideas and innovations (a fair warning: really, really long post)!

This isn't a very original type of post, I know, but since I'm here, might as well chip in a few ideas I have. I'm horrible at coming up with episode names, so I'm just going to paraphrase the plot the best I can as the working title. I'm also really horrible at one-sentence summaries and do apologize for that.
I have to specify ideas and innovations because I realize now that some of these plot points contain elements that are partially based on fanfics I read. One of the great things about The Loud House in terms of ideas is that it's very hard to run out of them. Unless the showrunners manage to do a horrible job with every single one, there's a fairly comfortable room for error in that you can easily discard an old plotline that isn't working out.
Just for the record, I spread out typing up this post over several days.
Also, please critique if you feel like it! And here goes:

Regional and National Events for Part 10

(Credit to Lurking for these events)

Council Preparations (Papacy, Lübeck, Hamburg, Kiel, Knights of St. Ansgar)

The Council of Lübeck could bring great prestige to the Hansa! How much effort should we put into the Council?

Rumblings in the Rhône (Akkersdijk's Exodites, Arles, Italian League, Papacy, France)

In the aftermath of van Akkersdijk’s flight to Avignon, many of his followers, called “The Exodites”, have followed him to the Kingdom of Arles, where they have spread like wildfire across the Rhône River Valley. Naturally, this presents a certain problem for the Catholics in the region.
  • Option 1. (Available to the Exodites) We should rise up and march on Rome!
  • Option 2. (Available to the Exodites) We should dig in and prepare for possible persecution.
  • Option 3. (Available to Arles) Heretics? More like corpses, amiright?
  • Option 4. (Available to Arles) Ehh I’ll deal with them later.
  • Option 5. (Available to the Italian League) Perhaps we should help Arles deal with these heretics.
  • Option 6. (Available to the Italian League) We should focus on possible conflicts to the northwest.
  • Option 7. (Available to the Papacy) Heretics? In AVIGNON? Send the Inquisition!
  • Option 8. (Available to the Papacy) We’ll worry about them after the Council of Lübeck.
  • Option 9. (Available to France) Hm, hopefully the heretics don’t spread into Aquitaine…
  • Option 10. (Available to France) Perhaps we should launch an “intervention” into Provence!

Swedish Skåneland? (Denmark-Norway, Lübeck)

For centuries, the Swedes have been a thorn in the side of Danish ambitions in Scandinavia, and their latest challenge to the newly crowned King Mads is an attempt to seize Skåneland, which they claim is rightfully Swedish territory. How should we deal with this?
  • Option 1. If the Swedes are looking for a fight, it’s a fight they’ll get!
  • Option 2. Perhaps negotiations might ease the hostilities?
  • Option 3. Pay them to screw off.
  • Option 4. Secretly persuade some Swedish nobles to distract the King’s attention elsewhere.
  • Option 5. Let them have Skåneland; maybe that’ll appease them?

Defense of Riga (Venice, Denmark-Norway, Lübeck)

The Livonian Confederation has been successful so far in their revolt, but the Teutonic Order isn’t just going to take this lying down. They’ve launched a campaign to take Riga, the heart of the Confederation, and may succeed in doing so unless aid is sent to the fledgling Confederation’s aid.
  • Option 1. Sorry, but this isn’t our problem.
  • Option 2. (Available to Venice) We’ll help… As long as they continue to be our vassal.
  • Option 3. (Available to Denmark-Norway) Extend an offer to exchange aid for money.
  • Option 4. (Available to Lübeck) We could help them… If they join the Hanseatic League…

Clash of Conquerors (ERE, Company of Death, Tyrian Guild, Despotate of Corinth)

Riding high off his glorious victory at Nicaea, the young Mehmed II is preparing to once again cross the Dardanelles and push into the Balkans. With the ERE still reeling from its losses, and his newly-reorganized janissary corps augmented with firearms and giant cannons, Mehmed threatens to undo decades of work by the Empire and its foreign allies- and possibly even threaten Constantinople itself. How to deal with this threat?
  • Option 1. Wait for him to cross and then attack!
  • Option 2. Take the fight to him- we won’t let Nicaea stop us!
  • Option 3. (Available to ERE) Withdraw to Constantinople- cannonballs can’t melt Theodosian Walls!
  • Option 4. (Available to the Company of Death) Raid? It’s worked for us so far.
  • Option 5. (Available to the Tyrian Guild) Hm. Our ERE properties might be worthless soon… Sale time!
  • Option 6. (Available to the Despotate of Corinth) Declare independence and hope he ignores us!

The Ponte Pietra Incident (Grossbayern, Austria, Baytear, Italian League, Venice, Piedmont, Florence, Modena, La Spezia, Corsica & Sicily, Arles, Naples, Sardinia)

Tensions between the Bavarians and Italians are at an all-time high, exacerbated by trade embargos, territorial disputes, border fortifications, and open Florentine support for rebellion in the Bavarian subject of Austria. The latest flashpoint is the arrest of Norman & Audwine von Wittelsbach by Florentine agents in Verona, while returning to Bavaria- allegedly bearing the secrets of gunpowder. Many Bavarian nobles, viewing this as the last straw, have begun to call for open war against the Italian League- and many in the Italian League, feeling threatened by Bavarian troop movements and economic measures, have returned the favor. Will there be war?
  • Option 1. (Available to Grossbayern, Austria, & Baytear) No… For now.
  • Option 2. (Available to Grossbayern, Austria, & Baytear) Yes! To War!
  • Option 3. (Available to the Italian League, Venice, Piedmont, Florence, Modena, La Spezia, Corsica & Sicily, Arles, Naples, Sardinia) No… For now.
  • Option 4. (Available to the Italian League, Venice, Piedmont, Florence, Modena, La Spezia, Corsica & Sicily, Arles, Naples, Sardinia) Yes! To War!
  • Option 5. War. A strange game. The only winning move is not to play. How about a nice game of chess?

Beyond the Pale (England, IRA)

The IRA’s recent activities have not gone unnoticed. Many local Irish chiefs have begun to feel threatened by the outsider’s incursions into the region, and have started to band together in opposition to foreign presence on the Emerald Isle. The Anglo-Irish lords, long neglected and losing ground, have also begun to feel threatened and have beseeched the Crown for aid.
  • Option 1. (Available to the IRA) Opposition, huh? Bring it on!
  • Option 2. (Available to the IRA) Well, that’s not good. Maybe we should lay low for a while?
  • Option 3. (Available to England) As long as nothing happens in the Pale, who cares?
  • Option 4. (Available to England) Perhaps we should send support to our Anglo-Irish subjects.
  • Option 5. (Available to England) Perhaps we should support these ‘IRA’ fellows?
  • Option 6. (Available to England) Time to take matters into our own hands. To Ireland!

Try Try Again (Tyrian Guild, Althor Sailing Club, Church of Mary, Frisia, Arles, Silesia)

Well, that last exploration attempt went poorly. What should we do?
  • Option 1. Launch another voyage of exploration! Surely this time the scurvy, long distances, lack of directions, unfavorable winds, and inclement weather won’t be a problem!
  • Option 2. On second thought, maybe we should stick to local shipping for now. Safer that way.

The Battle of Tunis (BUMS, VNS, MODS)

Over the last several years, Barbary piracy has become more and more of a problem in the Mediterranean. The Venetians, for instance, have organized significant naval forces to deal with the problem- and partially motivated by the piracy, the mercenary group BUMS has launched an assault on Tunis to capture the city. Unfortunately, BUMS’s expedition has stalled outside the walls of Tunis, and due to a lack of supplies, the outcome of the siege is uncertain.
  • Option 1. (Available to BUMS) Hold fast! With a little patience, surely God will grant us victory.
  • Option 2. (Available to BUMS) We should retreat and regroup, we risk getting totally wiped out.
  • Option 3. (Available to MODS & VNS) Perhaps we should help BUMS, their situation looks bad.
  • Option 4. (Available to MODS & VNS) BUMS will have to deal with it on their own; we have raiding to do.

The Transylvania Crisis (Hungary)

While our campaigns across the Carpathians have been a resounding success, trouble has been brewing in Transylvania. Long a multicultural region of Romanians and Hungarians, the region is has recently been going through a period of ethnic tension between the two groups, who differ religiously, culturally, and linguistically from one another. Though our Voivode of Transylvania, the famed John Hunyadi, has been able to keep the region together, our vassals Michael II of Wallachia and Stephen III of Moldavia have been seeking to exploit the local tensions, and have begun calling for Transylvania to be granted full autonomy (much like their own dominions) and to be ruled by a fellow Vlach-speaking ruler-ideally one of them. How should we deal with this?
  • Option 1. Ignore the situation. It’ll blow over eventually.
  • Option 2. Transylvania is a part of Hungary- we shall make sure our unruly vassals are quite clear on this.
  • Option 3. Autonomy? In MY Transylvania? How about we revoke Moldavia & Wallachia’s autonomy instead?
  • Option 4. Michael II can have Transylvania- maybe that’ll get him to shut up about it.
  • Option 5. Stephen III can have Transylvania- maybe that’ll get him to shut up about it.
  • Option 6. Promise Transylvania to both of them and then get them to fight each other over it.
  • Option 7. Let’s establish a new Transylvanian duchy under control of pliable local Romanian noble- so neither Stephen nor Michael will get it.
  • Option 8. Aren’t there a bunch of German immigrants in Transylvania as well? What if we just got a bunch more to immigrate and then gave it to them instead?

The Remains of the Duchy (Hungary)

The collapse of Lithuania has been a huge boon for its neighbors. Hungary, Poland, the Teutonic Order, the Golden Horde, and Muscovy have all taken the opportunity to snatch up pieces of Lithuania- including Lithuania proper. The once-Grand Duchy has been reduced to a patchwork of small successor states in Ruthenia, which our relatives on the Polish Throne now covet for themselves. Will we support such ambitions?
  • Option 1. Yes, and we will send them support to help claim it before anyone else can.
  • Option 2. Yes, but we lack the resources to aid them at the moment. They’ll have to do it themselves.
  • Option 3. No, they should take care of their own affairs- like preventing the Polish Magnates from getting uppity.
  • Option 4. No. Lithuania is rightfully Hungarian clay!

Rich Rhenish Rain (Hertog Brewery, Switzerland, Frisia, Lorraine, Bar, Electoral Franconia, Flandern, Brabant, Liege, Luxembourg, Trier, Mittelland)

As if to commemorate the foundation of the League of the Rhine, heavy rainfall has caused the Rhine to flood, bringing both hydration to our crops and rich sediment to be deposited in our farmland. A great boon for us, but potentially a problem if the flooding gets out of hand.
  • Option 1. (NOT available to Switzerland) So far the flooding hasn’t caused problems, but taking preparations just in case might not hurt.
  • Option 2. I’m sure it’ll be fine!
  • Option 3. (Available to Frisia) You know what can prevent floods? Polders!
  • Option 4. (Available to Switzerland) Hmph, we didn’t get any rain. Maybe we should dam the river a bit to divert some water to the crops- I’m sure it won’t cause any issues downstream.

A Hohenzollern Request (Saxony)

In the midst of the growing unrest in Brandenburg, and the seeming evaporation of their leadership, a family of minor nobles has arrived from Franconia, who say they have a rightful claim on Brandenburg- and promise great rewards if only you would support their claim.
  • Option 1. We shall support their claims and help them seize the throne of Brandenburg!
  • Option 2. We shall support their claims and help them seize the throne… And then take it for ourselves!
  • Option 3. We shall support their claims, albeit discreetly.
  • Option 4. They are welcome to recruit in our lands, but we have no resources to spare for them.
  • Option 5. If these upstarts think they can recruit in our lands, they are mistaken.
  • Option 6. I bet Brandenburg would reward us if we were to capture these fools and turn them over…

Armed Armistice (Diarchial Bohemia, Monarchial Bohemia, Silesia, Switzerland)

After decades of war, the Prague Armistice has finally brought peace to Bohemia. But it has come at a terrible cost- Bohemia lies in ruins, and while the Diarchial efforts to introduce firearms to crack down on lawlessness have mostly succeeded, these new weapons have spread widely throughout the lower classes, and have emboldened some of the disgruntled peasantry to resist attempts by either the Diarchists or the Monarchists to resume control.
  • Option 1. Hmm… Didn’t the Diet pass some law a while back barring peasants from arming themselves? Sounds like a good justification to confiscate the firearms and put the peasants in their place.
  • Option 2. (Available to Diarchial Bohemia) Eh, if the peasants want guns, they can have them- more money for the Guild-sponsored gunsmiths!
  • Option 3. (Available to Monarchial Bohemia) Our situation is precarious. While arming the peasantry could be risky, and it might embolden them to refuse paying taxes, we need any forces we can get- distribute firearms and allow the peasants to form militias if they agree to fight our enemies.
  • Option 4. (Available to Silesia) Firearms? Could we have some?
  • Option 5. (Available to Switzerland) We currently have a substantial mercenary presence in the area- and I’m sure that if our mercenaries had firearms, they would be even better then they currently are…

[Im]personal Demesne (Berg)

Ever since Louis V made Aachen the seat of the Imperial Court, there has been talk about officially making Aachen the personal demesne of the Holy Roman Emperoro and official capital of the Empire- just as it was in the days of Charlemagne. Might these rumors come true?
  • Option 1. Indeed they shall- we will cede Aachen to the Emperor, so that he might make it great again.
  • Option 2. No. Why would we give away one of our cities?

The Munster Mash (Munster, Brunswick, Bremen)

In the aftermath of the war with Munster, a strange condition has broken out amongst the citizenry of Munster and the soldiers returning home to Brunswick & Bremen- a peculiar mania that involves a lot of dancing.
  • Option 1. Unsettling. Let’s try to stop the dancers and hope this mania doesn’t spread.
  • Option 2. Join in the dance and encourage our friends to join- if they don’t dance they ain’t no friends of mine!
  • Option 3. (Available to Bremen & Brunswick) We shall dance to commemorate our victory!
  • Option 4. (Available to Munster) We shall dance to remember the fallen!

Anarchy in Navarre (Aragon, France)

The death of Queen Blanche of Navarre has thrown the small kingdom into chaos. The Basque nobles squabble among themselves and have failed to find a successor to the heirless Queen, which has given King Henry IV of Castille an excuse to try and annex the Navarre. Unfortunately for him, his claim is weak and both the Basques and his own treacherous nobles scheme to undermine his efforts, leading to a power vacuum in the region.
  • Option 1. (Available for both Aragon & France) Let’s not get involved, sounds like a mess.
  • Option 2. (Available for both Aragon & France) We shall support Navarre’s independence against Castille!
  • Option 3. (Available to France) Not our usual stomping ground, but perhaps we could claim it for ourselves.
  • Option 4. (Available to Aragon) “Navarre”? More like “Free Real Estate”

The Gathering (Company of Death, Papacy, Anyone with "Witch" or "Witch-Hunter" traits or half-traits)

Sognare Maria Visconti’s dabbling in the occult has not gone unnoticed. The Crimean holdings of the Company of Death have become a hotbed for like-minded occultists, witches, warlocks, seers, magicians, sages, and other dubiously-Christian weirdoes who feel emboldened to practice their crafts more openly. This has culminated in rumors of Sognare Maria Visconti calling for a gathering of fellow arcane dabblers to join him in an attempt to study this so-called ‘magic’ and attempt to discern whether there is anything valuable to be found in it.
  • Option 1. (Available to Company of Death) ‘Rumors’ of a Gathering? Let’s make it official!
  • Option 2. (Available to Company of Death) Dangerous Rumors indeed- anyone coming will be expelled.
  • Option 3. (Available to Company of Death) Eh. As long as these ‘witches’ don’t cause problems, let them gather.
  • Option 4. (Available to anyone with “Witch” half-trait) Sounds interesting. Maybe I’ll go there and observe.
  • Option 5. (Available to anyone with “Witch” full-trait) Sounds interesting. I think I’ll participate!
  • Option 6. (Available to anyone with “Witch-Hunter” half-trait). Sounds sketchy. Think I’d better be vigilant.
  • Option 7. (Available to anyone with “Witch-Hunter” full-trait). Thou shalt not suffer any witches to live!
  • Option 8. (Available to the Papacy) Eh, not our problem. Witchcraft isn’t real anyways.
  • Option 9. (Available to the Papacy) Condemn this Gathering and warn the Company to not let it happen.
