The monkey is probably a spy in disguise, maybe the Russians can arrest him & subject him to the comfy chair & soft cushions of the torture chamber.

[quote="Kingmaker"]sooooo wedding bells for me and my beloved Charlotte in Berlin soon then a new position to take up the future is bright the future is errr.... nice[What can possibly go wrong?/quote]

For the happy Prussian exile couple in the wilds of Russia my concerns would be:

a) Charlotte beauty and lack of beard gets the Czar all het up and overcome with passion in one of his Vodka binges.............and a sharpe knee to the Royal vitals gets out hero and his bride exiled to Siberia. Or behaps a cash offer form the Czar for both Charlotte and the Monkey.

b) The monkey does something in Orthodox communion wine resulting in our hero up on heresy charges.

c) Old believers

c) Our hero being a foreign military specialist gets stitched up by the "Old Russian" faction in the military.........resulting our hero running into Swedes, Turks, Cossacks, Persians, Hapsburgs, or Poles backed up by no more than a one eyed serf and a donkey.

e) Finally the ultimate fear of anyone one in Russia..............being sent to command a ship in the Russian Navy:affraid:

Just to clarify a few things before the arrival in Moscow.

Ha... Russian Navy there is no danger of getting a command there.... There are no ships

Probably best not to run into things years of military experience lead Russians to believe that Running away from things especially Swedes, Poles, Cossacks, Ottomans, Persians, Goats, Enraged Chickens is the best way forward, there is no future in an Heroic death, Rather be an able bodied coward any day

The Tsar is "Happily" married to the Tsarina no matter what monkey business goes on. ( Ok, the words Happily & Married should probably not be included in the same sentence, at least not after the Honeymoon is over)

There are no old believers in Russia, the average life expectancy is 35, so they are mostly all Young Believers,

The Monkey doing something to the wine will probably only improve the flavour or maybe "Afgan Fighting Wine," can be imported to help improve the sermons & make going to church a more interesting experience.

von Decken has already turned down the offer of running the Imperial Russian goat stud farm, trying to breed them all with black legs.......

Sailing Master to the Czar......in charge of teaching the would be future mariners of the Czar the ancient wisdom of the sea such as a) Dont eat dolphins.......bad luck b) Dont shot at albatross.....very bad luck c) Dont try underwater sex with girls with fishy tails.

Questions about tides, depth of water V hull depth, navigation, how to read a map, which rope to pull on to get ship to start, stop, turn......well these are or really the concern of gentlemen.

The above sounds fairly harmless but I think it should be pointed out that our favourite one eyed swordsman and agent of the kindly HRE in G2 has switched to G7 and the dark employment of "Peter the Terrible." In G7 the Russian Govt seems to be divided into fairly civil almost "Western" Ministers and a bunch of Othodox Religious Zelots who think the Czar is God on earth.

Latest reports from the "heart of darkness" indicate that the Czar has got rid of his nice civilized put corrupt ministers and is now asking them very pointed questions in the cellars with whips and hot pokers such as what did you take in bribes to:

1) Sale the use of my Army, Fleet & Treasury to the Jacobites? And what has happened to my Fleet?
2) Buy a land locked colony from its non owners?
3) Give my nice new Capital City to the Swedes?

Meanwhile with the fall of the "nice" ministers the savage zelots are taking Russia back to the good old days of Vodka powered orgies and dark henchmen being savage to Nobles, Jews, Protestants, Catholic's, Muslims, Old Believers and anyone who does not believe that Czar is God on Earth.

Job may be Ok for the time with plenty of Vodka, Women and Torture but what happens when the Czar takes a new mistress, and a new administration comes in which needs to purge the Bodyguard or face revolt?

May be time for earlier a Palace Coup or time for a sharp exit Very Happy

Sounds like that film "Ilsa the Tigress of Siberia" Razz [Not Safe For Work if anyone googles it!]

*just point out that I only saw about 20mins of said film, so I don't know too much about it - but torture, sex, vodka, all were often seen in those 20mins I did witness.

I thought that Fau Kingmaker name was Charlotte not Ilsa?

Oh well perhaps she will change he name on conversion to Othodoxy and taking up with an Old Believer Community in Siberia?

That or perhaps the Khanates Slavers feel they will get a better price if they sale a Ilsa to the Sultans buyers rather than a Fau Charlotte which sounds a bit domestic.
