      The under the tables agreement from last year is still in effect, right? Was thinking of mentioning it in a post.
      1. Elben

        Yes, absolutely. Under the table!

      I think it would be good for you to cast Donnet's vote unless @Nicosia has player-control, and then for @Azraq to cast Dalmar's vote. They are the only wildcards I think... or at least I only control Julian, who will vote for herself only if she's on the cusp of victory.

        Dalmar will vote Julian unless I've completely misread Gunnish internal politics...

        Small question. Is this for electing a new Pope, or is this for electing the Holy Tiburan Emperor?

      I screwed up. Ernst von Eberstein became John XXIII. Whoops. Let me know if you want to fix that or roll with it.

        We can treat it as unprecedented but not strictly illegal. IRL the Antichrist was a Holy Roman Emperor, Saracen bodyguard and all, so

        We have fuel coming in now, so farmers are able to do their thing.

      What are the ages of your King/Crown Prince and Mireille? I am wondering what age Emmelline de Valvoisette would be.
      1. Elben
        Elben
        Karl Maria (b. 1971) m. XX (d. 1999)
        Leopold (b. 1993) m. Mireille 2018

        I don't have a birthdate for Mireille, but I would expect she is within a year or two of Leopold. Emmelline could be late forties or early fifties.

        Thanks, because I envisage Mommy Emmeline isn't too pleased at Mireille going around as regent to Bourgogne. Ego issues. As you might have read, she is quite neurotic.

      Will the new Gunnish cardinal(s) be named before or after the consistory?
      1. Elben
        Elben
        During, I will make that clear. I didn't list new people, I just left it for all to decide if they wanted to participate rather than list your two and some others who've talked to me and then leave it open ended.

      How down would you be to have talks between the Pope and Patriarch about reuniting the Church?
      1. Elben
        Elben
        Talks! We can certainly do that if you want. I would be interested. Draw it out a bit, see if there are any other parties who would want to have a say. Hardliners on both sides (whomever our Russian Orthodox are for instance).

        That would be the Kadikistani Orthodox probs. I can send a message "in the Christmas spirit" and we could try to work something like a preliminary rescinding of excommunications like the IRL Churches in 2003.

      In this instance we could maybe have some cross-country co-operation, or maybe form some sort of "Interpol" type task force. Thoughts?
      1. Elben
        Elben
        We could go down that route, yeah. Regarding a gang war, I'm not sure how it's going to go. At this point, the "Yids" are more like collateral damage as Slavonians feed on each other, Nekmet vs. innocents, with Elben serving as the battleground/prize for the taking.

        Maybe the Yids take the fight to Nekmet in Bergenheim since they have more friends/access to heavier firepower there? I like the idea of going pretty hardcore dark with this stuff.

      Im liking your beginnings of an ethnic drug war. Would you like to link it to anything happening in Bergenheim? I was thinking of having the influx of trivs and slavs lead to a gang war in Yharnam over control of Blud, and use this as one more issue to push things towards right-wing support.

      How many cardinals are there in the Tiburan Catholic conclave? 15 seems like a goodly number, but I might also be way out. I dont mind if there's no room to join, just thought I'd ask.

        For RP purposes, what Gunn said in reply is the policy chosen by those who did the Conclave RP (which I wasn't actually involved in, I only returned to activity after it had started): whoever wants to RP a cardinal is free to send a cardinal, it being ICly assumed there has been a cardinal in that country.

        Fifteen is not an upper limit, it's just the number people decided upon based on who wanted to participate, and giving the bigger Catholic countries a few extras to show their influence.

        Right, we stipulated that Eif and Bourgogne would get 3 apiece, so the big/old Catholic countries of Gallo-Germania had a disproportionately big influence, and everyone else got 1.

      What Trivodnia wants at this summit:

      -Greater intelligence-sharing
      -Mutual abolition/lowering of tariffs + other trade restrictions on goods we are particularly dependent on Kadikistan
      -Joint management of Lake Elbe/Innensee, with Crotobaltislavonia getting a slice when it returns to responsible government
      -We're willing to consider supporting a return of the monarchy in CBS

        Consider nice and tidy palace halls with furniture covered in sheets to avoid gathering dust, patrolled by a Securitas private security guard to keep off trespassers. The Vacant City is NOT sovereign, like the RL Vatican. It's REtalian territory. However, REtalia grants the Order r extraterritoriality within its limits.

        On why the Popes went Itinerant, I honestly wouldn't want to be the only one deciding on this

        Thanks :)

        For the cardinals, given the fact that Meyer resigns, I currently only have Strelecki and Von Aschenbach as cardinals. Is there an agreement on where new cardinals come from? Or will there be a rule that from now on each country has one cardinal?

        I have no idea how it will work. I left that part of my news post vague so it can be worked out at the time of the conclave. My own personal position is that the more prominent Catholic countries can have more than one cardinal. Maybe we can have an OOC thread to discuss before the consistory this summer.

      Although, I have been thinking... maybe I could move another branch to your country as well. But this branch would favour Comtesse Emmeline de Valvoisette as the pretender to the throne. The Valvoisette faction is based in Trier. Where are you on the map?

        When I first came back a couple of weeks ago, it was still Australis from when Malat became Australis. I changed it back to Malat not knowing about the 30 day wait.

        If it's too far, that's okay. I don't want to create anything too artificial just for the sake of a relationship. However, if any of the Trier branch need a husband or a wife, let me know.

        In the thread I started asking for ideas, someone suggested Elben based on the Elb River that I guess flows through that map spot.
