Queen of Nothing, A Lack of Things and Emptiness.

Marina approaches Jan Pieterszoon.
((Private @ThePatriotOfDreumel ))
I see you have not yet expressed a choice for chancellor, sir.
Can I convince you that the prince may be a better choice than Queen Dowager Caterina? His Highness' Plan would secure far greater trade income, I am sure. The Portuguese are our competitors at home - and thus it is at home that they must be stopped.
Heavens knows how far she will go to appease the French, It would be a great blow to trade if she ceded Provence to them... She certainly seems more concerned with the Church than with Trade.
Marina Points at the retreating backs of the Iron Cardinal and Caterina, deep in conversation.
((Private @Keinwyn ))
None of the candidates seem to really wants the trade the way I want it.
I want Portugal and their colonies both conquered. None of the candidates actually seems to say this...
If you can convince Prince Martí to do that, I'll vote for him.
((Private talk with Prince Martí @Michaelangelo))
"Hõla, senõr Martí! I wanted to talk about your plan as Chancellor of the nation. I would like to conquer Portugal too, but I also want the colonies for trade. If you make this change to your plans, you will have my full support."
