EDIT: Also are you sure that the in-game envoys are now side-jobs and not sub-classes? If so you might want to edit any references to Merchant, Diplomat, Colonist, and Missionary that also includes Courtier :p))

((Well they would be sub-classes still if the nobles hadn't gotten greedy and demanded to be diplomats too. I had to reorganize my entire character sheet because of that. :p))

To His Majesty King Ferran II de Trastámara,
I would like to request the position of the Grandmaster after the unfortunate death of the last one. I believe I have the necessary experience to do the job well. It would make the cooperation of the Tran-Pyrenean Trading Company and Crown better. I also have another less personal request. It is about the colony in Africa, while it falls under company's administration it still belongs to the crown. And I believe the colony has grown big enough to consider sending some woman so the colony can sustain it's population without constant influx of colonists.
Maxime de Saint-Pierre,
head of the Trans-Pyrenean Trading Company

Very well, you may have the position.

- His Majesty, Ferran II de Trastámara, King of Aragon and Protector of the Greeks

Your Majesty,

my plan for Byzantium stays the same. In another matter, I have been asked by the TPTC if I could procure them a monopoly in Italy. While I do not think that giving them too many privileges and therefore power is a good idea, I do think this needs some consideration. But not in all of Italy, as they demand. It could very well escalate into war! No, what I propose is to accord them this privilege against our enemies in Genoa and Venice. It can only weaken them at the crown's profit, and if they try to break the monopoly, it would mean a war with them as aggressors. Though I may again remind Your Majesty to exerce caution with this company.

Your humble servant,
Diplomat Vincenzo Castelozzi, Duke of Trinacria and Representative to Byzantium

Xs93UHA.png

It would be pointless to grant any trading company a monopoly on trade with Genoa and Venice. We are mutually embargoing each other, so there is no trade between our kingdoms at this time. You can't monopolize what doesn't exist.

- His Majesty, Ferran II de Trastámara, King of Aragon and Protector of the Greeks

((Just to clarify, I can return to being a landed noble ten years from now? If not I'll edit this character accordingly.))

((Yes, you may return to being a landed noble after ten years, provided its not the same character you used before.))

Excuse me, Your Majesty. I forgot. Too much time thinking about consequences, so I missed the original point of my own idea - I may be getting old. Then I do not see any reason to grant a legal monopoly, and will also tell the traders the same.

_________________________________

Castelozzi felt as if hit by the same illness that had plagued his grandfather. What a fool he had made of himself. Well, he had to clear things up.

-to Francesco Chiave-

I am deeply sorry for my last letter, however it may have seemed to you. You must know that my grandfather suffered under some strange loss of memory and mental capabilities at the end of his life, and I fear that I am experiencing similar symptoms. Hopefully it is only a passing loss. In any case, I cannot support your monopoly. It would force any Aragonese trader in Italy to join the TPTC, and exclude any Italians from the lucrative exchange. Aragon has the might to enforce this, but I am sure the Italians wouldn't be happy. I also have my concerns about the growing might of the Trans-Pyrenean Company if it isn't that much Trans-Pyrenean any more. I am also too conflicted in diplomatic matters and not enough in trade to truly understand the benefit it would give to the crown other than the obvious income due to the TPTC.

Again, I express my excuses, and may your affairs turn well,
Vincenzo Castelozzi

Even as the heathens of this world start to embrace the true faith, there are more methods that must be taken. There are those who claim to follow Catholicism, but they never step foot inside a church or so much as utter a prayer. It is time that we rectify this. I propose that church attendance be made mandatory on the holy day of Sunday. All Aragonese citizens will be required to attend Mass on that day so that we can assure that they hear the word of God. Only then will we be certain that these heathens follow the faith and hear what is within the Bible. This law shall be know as the Act of Uniformity.

Your Majesty,

I have studied the strength of your enemy's navies and come to the conclusion that we need to increase the size of it. Especially, the Venetians are a threat. Should any event lead to a war with them, then our navy would not only be outnumbered by the Venetian navy, it would also most likely suffer a crushing defeat. Aragon, by right, should be the unchallenged naval power in the Mediterreanean Sea. Leaving this position to our rivals, the Venetians, is dangerous. I don't want to know the fate our navy would suffer in case of war.

I ask that:
  1. 10 more galleys and 2 more early carracks will be built once we have enough funds to do so.
  2. While we are at peace our fleet of transports shall be mothballed to reduce maintenance cost.
  3. 50% of our galleys shall also be mothballed while we are at peace. By mothballing some of the galleys, we will generate enough funds to further go over our naval forcelimit and thereby allow the production of the ships I plan to comission.
This plan will ensure that Aragon will return to be the unchallenged naval power in the Mediterranean Sea.

Regards,
Francesco Chiave, Grand Admiral of Aragon and Representative of the TPTC in Italy

To the Humble Priest Spinoza,

To answer your first point you won't have missed much, as most affairs are occuring outside our borders,
as you may have heard, our King, ever in his wisdom, chose to reclaim the lands he viewed as his, from our neighbour in god and land, Castile, furthermore, we have recently been called into a war alongside Portugal, on the Afrikan state of Jolof, in which- through seperate peace, the ourt agreed to seize a collection of land from the infidels ((last i heard it was the coastal provinces)). As a final matter, aragon has succeeded a successful monoply in trade, with baes in both Jolof and across the mediterrean.

As for offical residency for ourselves, most of us abode inside our respective chapels of cathedrals but, as is our duty to the divine lord, me and my fellow cardinals often congregate in Valencia, if of a religious national importance, or in Rome, should His Holiness wish to decree important matters to us, his Subjects.

I am sure we can find time to discuss this delicate matter in a more appropiate place, perhaps come to my diocese in the North, at Pirineo, i shall pay for your travel costs, no worries the my friend. I hope you take up this offer, and to see you shortly.

Yours truly,

Cardinal Juan de Soneta, Archbishop to Pirineo

((basically i am inviting you to do a joint IC post, such as what 05 and kei, or me and Mike, or me and Dei have done, in which our characters become better acquainted with one another, as well as having a discussion on St Augustine's philosophy.))
Thank you for the kind offer. I shall travel to Pirineo as soon as possible; I should be there within the month, barring bad weather.
With much humility,
Padre de Spinoza

(How would we coordinate an IC post, through irc or messaging or whatever? Thanks, this concept is new to me.)

((Instead of disbanding them you could have mothballed. This is what I suggest in the plan. In case of a war with Venice, our navy will be outnumbered. Having a mothballed fleet costs very little maintenance.))

With age I feel the increasing need to devote my energies to my duties in the church and therefore shall resign my duties as Lord Treasurer.

Explorers who show up at court and just say "I want to explore!" don't inspire enough confidence in those financing them. They need to provide a plan. Please provide one before the vote deadline. As for future conquistadors, you'll have to bide your time and wait until we discover some land first.))

Francesco trusts in the word of God and therefore feels that the Act of Uniformity will help strengthen the faith.

Though I am relatively new at the court, I believe it is our God-given duty to go forth for Christ and stay free of sin.

All souls must hear their priest preach, least their minds fall into wrong thought and heresy. All priests shall benefit from the guidance of the church fathers in order to avoid misguided preachings.
Whilst an expansion of the navy is a good idea, I am unsure if now is the most opportune time to undertake it.

I applaud the Prince's initiative and encourage all my fellow members of the court to support this law ((I would of purposed it myself but I missed the deadline)). Also, my plans as Court Chaplin are to remain unchanged.

Your Majesty,
While navy is very important to our nation, I do not think we are in an immediate need. A war with the Venetians seems distant, that is why I must object the plan of our Grand Admiral. The amount of funds that would be needed to build that many ships is enormous, and I believe we cannot afford it with a war with the Castillians in sight. The money would be better spent on mercenaries and army.

head of the Trans-Pyrenean Trading Company, Grandmaster of Aragon
