((From what Viola has told me, the act will reform weapons to "Imported Weapons"))
The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.
Narinori-san, while I agree with your cautious attitude, we must not act too foolish in front of these Nanban invaders. They think our godly Emperor is no god, and that their false one is correct. So, we should play with the Nanban's small, idiotic minds and convince them that we will "adopt" their beliefs.While I support the advancement of domestic Japanese naval skills, I must issue caution to the effort. Let us not become like the Nanban and become barbarians while trying to satisfy our base need to grow. The Emperor will protect and provide.
To clarify:I suggest this reform as well as the others already proposed.
