((@AvatarOfKhaine: I think limiting someone's abilities to getting into "special" roles isn't quite diverse, nor does it help getting more Courtiers. Those who desperately want to be a Diplomat will go Courtier, even if the rest of it isn't appealing to them RP-wise and those who don't want probably won't even have a chance because of the limited access. Think of it as you wish, but I think extending the possible Diplomats can't hurt all too bad.))
I apologize for my absence from court, as a long illness kept me from doing more than managing my family's estates. I have had little time to understand the issues at court, and so must abstain from expressing an opinion on most. However, I must agree with the Reworked Power Concentration Act, as implementing new technologies throughout the kingdom too far before their time can be prohibitively costly. Better to send your energies where they can be more effective I must also agree with the act of union.
Long live the King!

((As a long time member of the land waiting list as a noble, can I claim the County of Naples/ Napoli in advance? You said this was okay on the Coldfront but just confirming.))
Maxime was on his way to Valencia, capital of the might Aragonse kingdom, and good friends of the French nation. He decided that the best trade would be in the most important city of Aragon. After he arrived in Valencia, he thought to himself that king Ferran II might be interested in some of his stock. It was worth a try. He entered the throne room, presented himself and began to offer his goods.
I have the best French wine from the north, and fine cheese from the south. I also sell other goods. I have many paintings to offer, I also sell books from various scholars. If we speak of paintings I thought I would bring few here.
Saint-Pierre orders his servants to bring in few paintings and one of them was:
So did anything catch your eye? I will gladly sell my goods to you, for a fair price of course.
Yet another merchant coming before him peddling goods. Ferran was not in the mood for this today. He was ready to toss the man out on the street when a servant brought out a painting the King could not ignored. Ferran pointed to the painting of Lucrezia and asked, "Where did you find such a portrait? I must have it."
