That was a long read :p
With a delay- an amazing chapter, like always!
Is it just me, or the new Emperor is very progressive and much less fanatical? He supported Pisa and Caledonia in a war, traded slaves for money and weapons with Pisa, gave gold to Lithuania.
Also, the ledger is interesting- it seems like there is not huge Empire in the East or the West, we don't see any blacked out nation among the top nations in the ledgers.
The next Senate session will be interesting :)
Oh, and I don't think that the Senators who survived will be the elders by far. The gap between sessions forced our next Senators to be old, I had to change things so that my next Senator was born when his father was 38 years old. My next Senator is still 64 years old. If I wouldn't make this change, my next Senator would die very quickly.

Iirc the ledger only shows nations that you have discovered. If the Imperium does not know about Hinduming, it is not displayed in the ledger. Correct me if I am wrong please.

Hinduming? Mega Ryukyu? Minghals? Hah! Those are mere pretenders. The real enemy lies in the south...


The Antartican Penguin Empire will came for our heads! Repent now, oh dirty heathens, because in the land of the eternal day and night the power of the Supreme Emperor Penguin is growing, and no one, not even the Xenoi and their mighty fleet will be able to contain them!

Edit: Please, click on the image to know more details about this great nation. (?)

It would be fitting that once the Blue Demes have the most influence, we lose the majority we've had since the beginning. Still, there are eleven more Senators we're waiting to hear from. Things could change.

You guys need to chill a bit and bask in the unaffiliated greatness that is going to enter the Senate during the session.

The unaffiliated are important, but they can't get anything done on their own. They can't amend anything on the ballots. Being a part of a Faction does mean needing to appease to the unaffiliated, but it also means I have Senators that will side with me (assuming we've learned anything since last time....).

I was considering a coup of a white supporting family member against Anastasios' son but decided that I have to be there when the Blues finaly win.
Althrough as may notice from my Senator's bio when it will be added, there's an epic conflict brewing in my house which is why the bio of my next few Senators is going to be quite long.
And I find the lack of Blues worriying, after we finaly get the Emperor's favor- hopefuly Drucchi, Eliaspays and maby some others will return with Blue Senators of Hvide and Eliasian.

Most certainly. If the demes show signs of actually working together, I might even consider joining one some day.

CzokletMuss, have you edited the surnames file in the culture names file so our House names could, randomly, appear in the game?

If not, what do you think about this idea?

Most certainly. If the demes show signs of actually working together, I might even consider joining one some day.
Oh, the sweet inocence. Did you think that the hipodromme was an spectacle? Hehehe... Come, my child, to the halls of Magnaura, the Senate in Konstantinoupolis.

You guys need to chill a bit and bask in the unaffiliated greatness that is going to enter the Senate during the session.
Well said. The unaffiliated will be the real deciders of power in the senate.

That's the spirit. I guess the demes will be too busy with their petty squabbles, so it is up to us to advise the Basileos! It shouldn't be too hard to trick one of them into proposing what we wish for.

@Leandor and @Attalus: Let's meet on the field of honour backstabbing and treachery, we shall see how it'll go for all of us.

SENATUS CONSULTA

”Restauratio Classis Romanorum” Act

1. That the Imperial Navy despite the best efforts of its brave droungaroi and sailors continues to suffer heavy losses whenever it faces warships from the Far West and that it has to be strengthened to truly become a wooden wall separating the Faithful from the abhorrent and soulless Westerners.
2. That the Imperial Senate and all Noble Houses support His Imperial Majesty in this holy endeavor completely.
3. That therefore all Senators agree that above all else the Reform of the Imperial Navy (Maritime Ideas) has to be undertaken in order to secure prosperity and continue stability of the Imperium.

1. That in order to strengthen the Imperial Navy, it has to be reformed in such a way that would ensure that the Mediterranean Sea is free from the presence of Heathens, Heretics and Soulless Xenoi at all time and that in case of War the imperial dromonoi would destroy the Enemy.
2. That to achieve this goal temporary supervisory powers have to be granted to Megas Droungarios so that all of the Droungaroi and Sailors of the Navy as well as the Logothetoi responsible for the naval supply system and Strategoi responsible for recruitment of the Seamen are controlled under his scrutiny.
3. That the new thema nautikon should be created in thema of Socotra as a new base for operations of the Imperial Navy in the Eastern Seas.

In nomine Patris et Filii et Spiritus Sancti,

His Imperial Majesty, the Sacred Emperor Basileios III Angelos, basileus basileon by the Grace of God, king of kings and rulers of rulers, Caesar Augustus of the Romaioi and all Men, Autokrator of the Holy Church and Protector of the Christendom, in his great wisdom ordered me, his humble servant, to make sure that all of the noble Senators will read the secret report of Scrinium Barbarorum concerning expedition of droungarios Iebediah Kermanos before the session of the Imperial Senate.

Therefore I order you to come to the Great Palace as soon as you arrive in Konstantinoupolis to ascertain the contents of the report and thus fulfill the will of the blessed Autokrator.



May the blessing of Saint Markos be upon all of us.

Signed,
Michael Komnenos
President of the Imperial Senate


***

This Session I introduce a new way of interaction for you, dear players – Policies. Unlike resolution or senatus consultum, Policies are not proposed by the Emperor but by the Senate. This means that I'm leaving Policies entirely to the Senators. Each Senate Session there will be a chance to enact new Policies and revoke old ones, which is especially important since I'm not going to revoke them manually. In the future with more Idea Groups there will be more Policies and the Senate will have even greater influence on the campaign.

The special update dedicated to expedition of Iebediah Kermanos will be released before the Session begins. :)
