No need for the Office Phase

So let's move on to the pirates.

I believe over the course of the last two turns, counselors have suggested Increasing a Tribute to the pirates, negotiating a new treaty with the pirates, and discharging the Minister of the Navy.

And still the pirates are a problem for Fandonia.

At the Monarch's pleasure, the Minister of State, Knight Dale reports that the ongoing negotiations with the suzerains of the pirates continue to progress; regrettably the continued ineffectual intrusions of our military forces (well led but poorly supplied) and the reductions in tribute have caused some pirates to continue harassing our coasts and merchant shipping. That the king's ministries have been working at cross-purposes is evidenced by the +1 DRM applied by the Minister of State to the Minister of the Navy's efforts (if any) to resolve the problem. Clearly, it is time for new hands to take the helm of the Ministry of the Navy.

Before the House of Lords
Vauxhall Chambers
Houses of Parliament
High Gwynedd City

Sire, My Lords of the Peerage, Distinguished Members of Parliament:

This shall be my last address as a Minister of the Navy and Lord of Admiralty. The pirates have been a continuing vexation to our shores. Some, (and here he peered across the assembly) have profited and will continue to do so while other of our countrymen die at the hands of ruthless men. {His aged hand slammed down upon the lecturn the thunderclap startling the audience if for no other reason than that it surprised them all that such an aged and frail man might yet be capable of expressing his anger and frustration with such strength.) There is corruption in the land. It is beyond my ability to solve these problems, nor do I have the time left in life. The job requires a younger, more able, and dedicated man.

During these proceedings I will simply sit mum while I watch the jackals and harpies wail and gnash their teeth while pointing fingers at each other. You are all to blame. I wash my hands of you all and refuse to take part in these so called deliberations.

Thus, at the end of my term I will give no orders leaving these problems to my coming successor and good luck to him.

Earl Maxwell
Minister of the Navy
1st Lord of Admiralty



Will make no effort to resolve the problem.

Reminder: the Pirates are still a problem but the failure count will reset with a new minister.

And the Monarchs support drops to 80.

Court Ball


With the pirates in the Harbor and the Minister of the Navy leaving in disgust, the King decides to have a party.

The last Court Ball is but a fading memory. During these troubled times it is good sometimes to set our cares aside. Although the reclusive Baroness Melanie remains in her pre-marital seclusion, the First Judge, Minister of State Knight Dale, and Earl Simon shall attend the Court Ball on Turn 7 (roll includes +1 DRM): 2d6+1 = (6 + 2) + 1 = 9.

Hmm, I just realized that after each of the last two Court Balls my opportunity counter draw was "Duel" -- let's hope the third time is truly the charm and we break that pattern!

A quick note on free counsels from the Court Ball: they can be used for any proposal on any available table -- including the pirates! -- with no negative consequences (be warned: the various modifiers are still applicable, for good or ill).

My PP is now 38.
