So the rumours that Lord Fong's nerferious henchman Dr Fu Manchu has been secretly building a fleet of clockwork mechanical fire breathing Dragons are true. Will no one stop Fong's mad schemes for world conquest!!!!

Dragon fire does have a way of changing ones outlook on life when you're on the receiving end...ok it's usually now a very brief outlook...

Is Dragon fire similar to a really hot Vindaloo? Which has sometime been confused with Dragon Fire, the "back(side)" blast it causes can usually only be remedied by placing toilet rolls in the freezer the night before the fire making substance is consumed.

Ref The Age of Enlightenment G9

Have I got it right in thinking that Spain:

- Is ruled still ruled by a Regency for the "miracle" Hapsburg baby of Carlos II(?) & his Queen (?) but the Regency is pro French?

- Spain is about to suffer a bad famine and is planning to ship people to the America's and probably ship in extra food if this can be imported to reduce the effects of the famine. But just when it needs its shipping lanes clear its gone to war with the English?

Clearly some deep and "enlightened" plotting going on in G9 way above heads of mere mortals.confused

The Spanish Regency has changed, the original male child has been declared a changeling and a female miracle child the Infanta Christiana has been declared the legitimate heir.
France and Austria apparently accept Christiana's legitimacy. Spain has declared that the previous regimes policies to be illegal, including the sale of Milan to Venice.
The Pope was asked to investigate the whole affair, but the Spanish Regency now consider the Vatican to be under the influence of the English.

There is a lot of fake news going around at the moment; His Holiness could be just another pawn in the English scheme. With nothing but criticism of Spain from the pontiff what's a boy to think!? Luckily Rosales knows the truth, and careful reading and interpretation of his magnificent speech should reveal all...

As for the rest of it - no one was more surprised than i to see the tentacles of English scheming woven into the very fabric of the Spanish leadership...careful on the roads my lords, them potholes can be pretty dangerous!

The famine is a disaster, but what can you do. If no one plants food crops across the entire Empire then little Diego is going to go hungry...but, like in the best movies the 'Cavalry' is trundling to the rescue!

I've never been a fan of the 'grain rules'. RL Spain was, like a lot of countries at this time, beset with several localised food shortages, but the scale of the surplus/deficit amounts doesn't seem to reflect the Rule book...that said it is a game, and it is only a mechanism. The scale of any famine
could technically make it a position killer. Far more devastating than any war, and only 5 months in the impact. By December the Empire may resemble a scene from the Walking Dead, so if you are planning to visit do take precautions!

We'll see what the Gods have in store for us...
