Here is a creative area for players, here players can write pretty much any and everything related to the game, such as post propaganda, fancy out their turn results with more detalied accounts or write letters to individuals and such. There are few rules as to what to do or not in this area, so just use it for your own amusement.

So, IC away my children! (I might also IC from time to time, and maybe even answer some of yours!)

The Archbishop of Luna

Written in the Year of Our Lord 1800, As the New Year Turns, By Msgr. Testudo
The words came to me in a dream. The Archbishop of Luna. The Moon, Luna, that great white-grey orb, has taunted me every night since. I sit here, with my pen and parchment, cooped up in the grand bell-tower of the San Giorgio Monastery in Venice, our holy place of exile now that Rome has fallen to lowly men. The Papal Conclave, ongoing for many weeks, has left us all sleepless - even I, a humble cleric, scribe and attendant to Cardinal X, nothing more. What woes must afflict the Sacred College, who must chose a new Bishop of Rome. I myself lay insomniac thinking of that dream, thinking of the Archbishop of Luna. A curious thought, no? That an archiepiscopal see would be established on that barren rock. Other ideas spring to my mind, pondering in the tower, a prisoner of the conclave. What other celestial titles could be dreamed up? Cardinal-Bishop of the Martian Poles, Patriarch of Jupiter, Apostolic Vicar of the Outer Nebulae?

Thoughts of folly, no doubt, but I cannot help but to think of the - in my personal view, a mortal sinner that I am - very real possibility that one day, aeronaut-missionaries shall land on those distant planets, carried there by flying machines, and make the word of Christ known to the heathens of the Stars. Please, hold your laughter at least until I have made my case, dear Reader. If we for a moment accept the hypothetical idea, brought forward in some of the strangest fictions of our time, that there be Men and Women of the oddest types living off-world, beings with extraterrestrial intelligence created by God but perhaps currently unknowing of his doctrines, then should we not also consider that we then have an obligation to visit these creatures and begin a process of conversion?

This beautiful natural world, forged by God Almighty, continues to surprise daily, with news of the strangest discoveries - from whaling journeys into the deep Arctic realms, to the intrepid explorations of the Amazon and Australia in the southern hemisphere. Savages of all kind are discovered on a daily basis, until now unknown by Christian men, and just in the last few centuries we have experienced an expansion of the Christian faith on an - forgive my jest - truly biblical scale. It is not hard to see why we, Men of God, might dream up the idea that there are peoples among the planets and the stars as well, ready to receive the light of the Lord.

This idea, of intelligent life outside of our own planet, and the possibility of our own kind travelling to planetary bodies far out in the dark voids of space, has been brought up by many writers and authors as a flight of fancy or rhetorical device, even in ancient times. This is the idea of "cosmic pluralism". In the second century, the writer of satires, Lucian, in his True History claimed to have visited Luna when his ship was sent up by a fountain, finding it to be peopled and at war with the people of the Sun over colonisation of the Morning Star. In A Thousand and One Nights, the great Saracen work (translated byAntoine Galland in 1704), features the story of "The Ebony Horse", a flying mechanical horse controlled using keys that could fly into outer space and towards Sol.

Many somewhat heretical Protestant writers have brought it up in modern times. Johannes Kepler's 1634 Somnium, Francis Godwin's 1638 The Man in the Moone, Henry More's 1647 Democritus Platonissans, or an Essay Upon the Infinity of World and John Milton's 1667 Paradise Lost all entertain the idea of life on Luna and other extraterrestrial bodies. On the Catholic side of literature, Bernard Le Bovier de Fontenelle's 1686 Conversations on the Plurality of Worlds did the same, expanding rather than denying the creative sphere of the Maker, and Marie-Anne de Roumier-Robert wrote the novel Lord Seton's Voyage Among the Seven Planets in 1765. And of course, who can forget Voltaire's 1752 short story Micromégas? The volume, despised by many of my colleagues, recounts the visits of a man from a planet circling the star Sirius, and of his companion from the planet Saturn, to Earth. So certainly, the idea of such life is not as alien to us as it may seem. But why would a cleric such as myself think of it, and would such travels ever be possible to make?

The Ecclesia Catholica, the Rock of Jesus Christ itself, is often accused by those who favour themselves to be "Enlightened" men - and worse yet, the atheistic pseudo-scholars of the Terror, and others who befoul the world - to be anti-scientific, against the sciences. Nothing could be further from the truth. Surely, many of our predecessors have been reactionary in this regard, defending what they viewed as the natural order of the world against impious encroachment - the result of which was, at times, unfair persecution. But things have moved on since then, dear Reader, blessed as we are by God with the movement of the stars through Time. Inquisition's ban on reprinting Galileo's works was lifted in Florence already in 1718. The great scholar-pope, His Holiness Benedict XIV, a man of infinite genius, wisely authorized the publication of an edition of Galileo's complete scientific works in 1741, and in 1758 the Index of Prohibited Books omitted the general prohibition of works defending heliocentric ideas. As we sit here, in this forlorn monastery, we must remember that our recently fallen Holy Father, His Holiness Pope Pius VI, was a sponsor of the Vatican Observatory. We live in a different world now, we men of the Faith.

Most of Europe's greatest astronomers have been Roman Catholic Christians, and many of them themselves have been clergy of the Holy Church itself, in fact. Hermann, who wrote treatises and built astrolabes at Reichenau Abbey in the 11th century. The medieval monk Johannes de Sacrobosco who wrote De sphaera mundi around 1230. A Capuchin friar by the name of Anton Maria Schyrleus of Rheita made the telescope of Kepler, and mapped the lunar surface. The Benedictine monk Placidus Fixlmillner, who computed the orbit of Uranus. Abbé Nicolas-Louis de Lacaille, who published Astronomiae Fundamenta Novissimus, and named the Cometa Halleyanus. The scientist-cleric Peirescius, a savant who studied the moons of Jupiter and the Orion Nebula. Pierre Gassendi, a French priest and the first to publish regarding the transit of Mercury. The priest Giovanni Battista Riccioli, author of the groundbreaking encyclopedia Almagestum Novum. And hundreds and hundreds yet more. The list is endless, and I do my peers great dishonour by not mentioning them all.

Many of the world's current, living astronomers are members of the Catholic clergy, too. Father Franz de Paula Triesnecker, the director of the grand Vienna Observatory. The brilliant Marcin Odlanicki Poczobutt, a Polish-Lithuanian cleric who until last year served as rector of Vilnius University, the last Royal Astronomer of Poland-Lithuania. Giuseppe Piazzi, priest of the Theatine Order and founder of the Palermo Astronomical Observatory in 1790. The young Piarist scholar Giovanni Inghirami, professor of mathematics and philosophy in Volterra. Et cetera, et cetera. We know well now that the world is much greater than just our own Earth, where the Maker placed us, and we have the men of intellect necessary to hypothesize regarding all manner of subjects connected to this.

The Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome, now sadly closed during the occupation, has long been a center of Papal astronomy, since the Gregorian calendar was modified using knowledge gained from the stars by its alumni. The Tower of the Winds, the Gregorian Tower, was completed already in 1580. The Papacy established the Observatory of the Roman College in 1774, and a decade later the Specola Vaticana was additionally established in the Tower of the Wind under the direction of Msgr. Filippo Luigi Gilii, who yet guides it. From Rome, the Holy City, the stars and planets are watched, and the foundations upon which the future of the Faith stand are plotted out. Or at least they would be, were it not for the most tragic disrepair brought onto us by the French and Neapolitan occupations, which must cease soon lest all the Consuls and Kings of Europe risk God's wrath.

Across the Italian nation, there are many other observatories, the finest hallmarks of Christian European science. Not long ago Felice Fontana organized an observatory at the Royal Museum of Physics and Natural History in Florence. In the same city lays the older Ximeniano Observatory. Outside of Bologna the Panzano Observatory was built by Cornelio Malvasia over a century and a half ago. Then there's the Astronomical Observatory of Trieste, the Observatory of Turin, and so on. We own many marvels, we Italians.

The Brera Astronomical Observatory in Milan was constructed in 1764 by the Jesuit astronomer Rodericus Iosephus Boscovicus (known in his Ragusan homeland as Ruđer Bošković). The great polymath, who helped save the dome of St. Peter's Basilica from collapse, made many a great discovery - such as, in 1753, that the absence of atmosphere on Luna, meaning life is unlikely on our closest celestial body - but certainly not impossible elsewhere. Those who doubt the work of God in the realms of space, heed his words: "Regarding the nature of the Divine Creator, my theory is extraordinarily illuminating, and the result from it is a necessity to recognize Him." Such a magnificent world, arranged according to such fine laws of nature, cannot be designed without divine love.

Design for a Flying Machine, Leonardo da Vinci, Anno Domini 1488.
And of course, who can forget the deeds of Venice? As I sit here in my exile, perched in the ancient monastic tower, I must pay homage to the fallen Venetian Republic's past. In Venetian Padua, the 15th century Bishop Francesco Capuano Di Manfredonia wrote tracts on the celestial spheres. And it was here that the infamous Leonardo himself, a native of the Florentine Vinci, designed many of his inventions. He came here in exile, as we of the College now have done. Better known for his other studies, Leonardo was an astronomer as well, in part at least, writing on the movements of the planets and the status of Sol. Even more interesting, perhaps, are his thoughts on aerial flight.

His 1505 Codex on the Flight of Birds mapped out many proposals for how Man might soar like a bird, hopefully more successfully than Icarus, work that many others have attempted to - with some success - replicate since then. His "flying machines", some with wings and others with rotors, are of high interest to me, no doubt. And let's not forget his " mechanical knight", displayed at the Sforza court in 1495, his armoured war-wagon, his self-propelled cart, his suit for diving underwater, his steam-powered Architonnerre cannon... While few of his ideas were, or could, ever be realized, those successes the great inventor had do show promise. From some, mayhap, tools for traversing the great voids can be derived in the future.

Since his times, many others have attempted flight, with greater success albeit other methods. Perhaps these likewise signify the hypothetical future of space-travel? Using great balloons filled with hot air or gases, good faithful Christian men of the world have traversed the skies. Who can forget the works of the Montgolfier brothers, whose endavours resulted in the first manned flight in 1783? Or the flights via hydrogen balloon of Jacques Charles and the Robert brothers? Today, two decades later, balloons have lifted across the Americas and Europe, to much success. I myself witnessed the ascent of the Italian pioneer, the daredevil Vincenzo Lunardi, by Mons Vesuvius in September 1789.

Image
The first manned flight by the Montgolfier Brothers, 19 October 1783.
One day it may happen that representatives of the Church, having journeyed to Mars or Venus in Leonardo-esque flying machines or carried by modified Montgolfier balloons, parachute down to the surface wearing breathing-suits, and finally fulfill the greatest destiny of Mankind - to enlighten extraterrestrial beings on the glory of God. Or it may very well not. Maybe my dream is just that, and nothing more. Maybe we will never leave our own atmosphere, maybe such life does not exist, maybe God in his endless wisdom intends for us to remain earthbound.

Whatever the case may be, I maintain that the concept of "Exotheology", the theoretical possibility of a future Archbishop of Luna if you will, should at the very least be discussed as a thought experiment, so that we may better figure out how to handle our missionary work here on Earth itself. And certainly, the Church should continue its current work in the field of astronomy, so that we may better appreciate the divinity of the natural world, shaped by the Lord. Now, my dear Reader, I must surely go to bed. It is long past midnight here in Venice, and we must all wake soon to try and finish this damnable conclave. May God have mercy on us all.

PEACE PREVAILS; BONAPARTE NAMED CONSUL FOR LIFE

Beneath the shade of olive trees, they said Italy would never be freed - never united.

In the land of Pharaohs and kings, they said to strive was folly - peace unattainable.

Along the banks of the Rhine, they said the Emperor would never be stopped - victory denied.

Now, all of Europe stands in silence. Peace with Ottoman Sultan. Peace with Hapsburg Emperor. Victories worthy of antiquity, and the banner of France soaring in high esteem throughout the Continent and the World. A banner held unwaveringly aloft, carried to that place of honour by First Consul Bonaparte - General Bonaparte! - the defender of liberty and of France! For with these hard-won and deftly-fought victories, the security of French ideals and beliefs, and more importantly of the French nation and her allies, has been attained against the most threatening foes.

In stunning developments and grateful recompense for his steadfast defence and extraordinary actions, the Tribunat has voted near-unanimously in favour of conferring Life Consulship - an action confirmed by the Corps Législatif - upon the First Consul! With immense popular acclaim for this honoured hero of France, an announced vote to confirm this appointment is expected to return an overwhelmingly positive result.

Vive la France! Vive le Consulat français! Vive Bonaparte!

  • It is declared that Tianzhu, the Lord of Heaven, is a belief held by superstitious foreigners and misled people of the Zhonghua minzu. It is further established that this belief stems from the traditional beliefs in Tian and Shangdi, and that as such, practitioners of these superstitions within China are to be accorded basic dignities, but that the propagation of this superstition -with its foreign origins- must be halted.
  • Foreigners of the Western Ocean, should they propagate the faith of the Lord of Heaven, or clandestinely print books, or collect congregations to be preached to, and subsequently deceived to; or should any of the Zhonghua minzu propagate the doctrines of the Lord of Heaven outside of the approved areas, or clandestinely give a false name through the superstitious "baptism" - if proved, the provocateurs and leaders of these superstitions shall be sentenced to death by strangulation.
  • Those of the Zhonghua minzu who presently consider themselves followers of the Lord of Heaven are to register themselves with officials of the Board of Rites and the magistrates in the lands to be settled; it is decreed that none may molest or disturb the practice of their faith on pain of execution. Neither shall the jidu tu leave their prescribed homes without official approval, nor shall they intermarry.
  • The sale of the followers of the jidu tu shall be halted immediately, and representatives from the Thirteen Factories shall be permitted to purchase back those sent into slavery within Chinese borders. Those who are not purchased within six months may ask their master to file for recompense with the Provisional Governor and enter a period of military service, or approach with their master the nearest magistrate and set terms in which they may purchase their freedoms.
  • Approved areas shall be subject to the decree of the above apparatuses, who will henceforth bring forward proposals to settle the followers of the sect elsewhere. In the Emperor's munificence, it is commanded that the Councillors and censors of the Board of Rites cooperate with the magistrate of Hekou, so that the faith of the Lord of Heaven may be practiced unmolested within his jurisdiction, and with the foreign-leased land of Macau and the Thirteen Factories..
  • Foreign barbarians of the Thirteen Factories professing faith in the Lord of Heaven shall, at the behest and approval of the Cohong, offer a leader of their rites to pay tribute to the Emperor, and in return be accepted as the voice and advisor for the jidu tu of China.
  • It is expected of the jidu tu that they will revere the Emperor, pay tribute to his name, and be subject to his laws. They are therefore restored in their ability to practice the traditional seasonal and ancestral rites known to all Chinese. Any foreign "representative" of these faiths not approved by the Board of Rites is unrecognized, their rejection is rendered invalid under the Emperor's tianxia, and they are commanded to recognize the importance of these and any other rites sacred to the Chinese nation.
Let these laws, implemented by the tianming of His Imperial Majesty the Emperor of the Great Qing Dynasty, Son of Heaven, Lord of Ten Thousand Years, be respected and followed for the betterment of tianxia.

By the grace of God and of the Apostolic See, His Holiness Pope Pius VII has declared the BEATIFICATION OF BALTHAZAR OF LOYOLA.
A martyr by dedication if not by blood, Balthazar Mendez de Loyola - born in the Year of the Lord 1631 in Fez, dead on 15 September 1667 in Madrid - entered the world under the name "Mohammed El Attaz", a prince of noble Moorish blood, son and heir of Abdalauhid, King of Fez. He once titled himself the "son of the Emperor of Morocco". A skilled commander and able ruler, he went on a Mohammedan pilgrimage to Mecca in 1651, but was captured by the Order of Knights of the Hospital of Saint John of Jerusalem. In Maltese captivity, he continued to write Islamic texts and preach to his fellow prisoners, but after his ransom had been paid by the Bey of Tunis, a miracle happened.

On June 12th 1656 he received a vision instructing him to enter the light of the Lord, and on July 31st received his Baptism. He took the name Balthazar after his one-time captor and new godfather, the Knight of Malta Sir Balthazar Mandols, the name Mendez due to the palace where the ceremony took place, and the name Loyola as his baptism as that day is the feast day of Saint Ignatius of Loyola. A new life of piety began.

First spending his time converting the lost souls of those Mohammedans seized as captives and held as galley-slaves in Italian ports, he then became a novitiate of the Society of Jesus, spending three years studying Latin and Italian at the college in Messina and two years of service in Rome, before being ordained a priest on December 27th 1663. Returning to his missionary work, he converted over 600 Mohammedan galley-slaves, ensuring their freedom and their eternal life alike, formed a confraternity for new converts, and refuted his own prior writings in new Arabic-language texts. In 1667, he took upon himself his greatest mission yet, to become a missionary to the East Indies.

While travelling to the port of Lisbon, he fell gravely ill, and died in the Colegio Imperial de Madrid. Even on his deathbed, he converted a young Mohammedan. Moved by his piety, the Queen of Spain ensured that the Moorish prince once known as Mohammed El Attaz, heir of Fez, received a royal funeral. Across Europe, hearts were touched, and men such as the playwright Pedro Calderón de la Barca wrote of his deeds. It is in recognition of all these deeds, and of his martyrdom on his missionary path, that he is hereby BEATIFIED.

From now on, he shall be referred to as Blessed Balthazar Mendez de Loyola. His patronage shall be the Nation of Morocco, his attribute the Moor's Head, and his feast day the 15th of September. His birthplace in Fez, and his tomb in Madrid, are to be legitimate sites of pilgrimage.

The man christened as Napoleone di Buonaparte, the First Consul of France, is a sinner.

He invaded the Holy See, plundered its churches, installed a false republic in mockery of Rome's ancient traditions, slew countless Roman citizens and imprisoned equally countless holy men, jailed and indirectly killed Pope Pius VI, and refused His Holiness a proper burial. The list goes on.

No man is perfect, and all may be absolved from sin in the eyes of God, once they receive His light into their hearts and begin to walk the path of penance. So, Napoleon has done, with the Liberation of Rome from even more sinful hands. Just as Sir Godfrey of Bouillon, who led the Liberation of Jerusalem, never took for himself the title of King and instead claimed that of Advocatus Sancti Sepulchri, Protector of the Holy Sepulchre, so shall it be with the Consul for Life.

In accordance with the Convention between His Holiness Pius VII, the French Government and the Italian Government, signed in the Year of the Lord 1800, it is now declared that the Head of State of France shall be called the Protector of the Papacy and of the City of Rome.

Let us pray that Rome and Italy never again see the flames of unchristian, unholy war.

THE ACT OF RECTIFICATION

Image


-

Done by the FIRST CONSUL of the French Republic, concerning the territory of Brunswick-Lüneburg.

BONAPARTE, First Consul of the Republic, President of the Italian Republic, TO THE HANOVERIANS.

Hanover, a territory long languishing under the divisive and inconsistent rule of various petty monarchs, has been a pawn on the field of Europe. Ruled long from afar, it has been unable to find in itself the means of changing its fate, or rectifying its entrenched problems, where such problems have benefited those who ruled. The affection of the French nation for this commendable people, whom it has lately defended by its arms; the interests of France, who lie as neighbours to these lands; the request of those who have a voice towards reason and reform, and the wish of the whole people of these lands, have made it our duty to seek the rectification of these wrongs.

In meeting with appointed deputies of this territory, we have taken as our aim to determine and distinguish that which corresponds best to the needs and wants of the people, and to reconcile the old system with those objects which must be achieved to the happiness and liberty of the citizenry. Having thus employed all means of knowing the interests and will of the people, we, as rectifier, with no other view than that of the happiness of the people over whose interests we had to pronounce, ESTABLISH the following:

  • The formal abolition of all ephemeral formal entities, territories and subdivisions currently included in the occupied Hanoverian territories, including the "Electorate of Brunswick-Lüneburg", the "Duchy of Brunswick-Lüneburg", the "Principality of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel", the "Duchies of Bremen and Verden", the "Prince-Bishopric of Osnabrück", "Duchy of Saxe-Lauenburg", etc. etc. These are all hereby replaced by the unitary "State of Hannover" (German: Staat Hannover, French: État de Hanovre). The State of Hanover shall form a provisional government, led by a temporary directory committee; consisting of local Hanoverian reformers and the French General of the Army of Eastphalia. All internal borders will be abolished. Pending the writing of a constitution, to be published once peace has been acquired, rule will be made by decree.
  • All government communiques and other public printed texts are to be written in a standardised West Low German dialect, inspired by recent Scandinavian attempts at unifying the Norwegian and Danish languages. This standardisation will be enforced at all local universities. Usage of traditionalist Gothic-inspired typefaces will be avoided in favour of modernised ones. All local newspapers and journals will be restricted and their printing pressed confiscated. A state-owned gazette will be founded to replace them. Government communiques and newspapers shall also be available in a dual-language format which incorporates French.
  • All Hanoverian serfs are hereby emancipated, with land reform taking place, including the division of royal lands amongst the landless.
  • All urban guilds and other restrictions upon trade are hereby abolished, allowing for a complete freedom of enterprise.
  • The metric system of weights and measures will be introduced and made mandatory by decree in all official functions. Shops and industries which do not comply will be closed down until they do so.
  • The Hanover Guard (German: Hannoverschutz, French: Garde Hanovre) will be immediately established in order to keep the peace, work in conjunction with the French Army of Eastphalia to enforce order. It shall be formed from local supporters, and amnesty shall be given to those local prisoners of war, deserters, and others previously belonging to royalist forces wishing to serve.
  • All inhabitants of the occupied territories will be declared to be citizens of the State of Hanover, to be awarded equal rights as citizens in accordance with the Rights of Man. The citizenship of all exiled troops belonging to the "King's German Legion" in Great Britain will be recognised, as will that of other Hanoverian exiles in Great Britain (including noblemen, ministers, diplomats, etc.), but shall be suspended by decree due to their service in the court of a foreign power.
  • All properties of the British Royal Family and their close acquaintances and relatives (including noble estates, and the antiquities collection of Johann Ludwig, Reichsgraf von Wallmoden-Gimborn, uncle of King George III) will be confiscated for use by the State of Hanover for governmental purposes. All coats of arms of the Royal Family and related dynasties will be defaced, all family tombs in assorted churches covered up, and so on. This includes the grave of King George I of Great Britain and his mother at Leine Palace, which is to be moved to an undisclosed location to protect it from overly zealous patriots.
  • The numerous properties belonging to the British Royal Family and their close acquaintances and relatives to be confiscated are to be converted into venues open to the public. This includes the "Herrenhausen Gardens" in the City of Hanover, which shall become a botanical garden open to all Citizens of Hanover without charge.
  • Full religious freedom will be declared for the Catholic and Protestant communities, to be enforced in line with the French Concordat with the Holy See of Rome regarding public religious celebrations, etc. Full emancipation of the Jewish community is herein established, including its reorganisation via the establishment of a Hanoverian Consistory of the Israelites to control it. All "Leibzoll" special tolls on the Jews which currently are maintained in several of the occupied territories will be immediately abolished. The progressive community leader Israel Jacobson will be made President of the Consistory.

[Empress Saint Helena of Constantinople, carrying the One True Cross,
laying the grounds for the Vatican Gardens using the sacred soil from Mount Calvary.]



Invitation of Botanists
and
Rewards Issued for Botanical Discoveries

The University of Rome, on orders of His Holiness the Pope himself, hereby invites all prospective and current students of the art and science of Botany to travel to Rome, the ancient heart of Botany since the days of the great Antonius Castor himself.

Any naturalist educated in the art and science of Botany, who travels to Rome and makes himself known at the University of Rome shall be received and welcomed. Those that pass a rigorous test of competence and skill, regardless of formal qualifications, shall receive a significant pension from the Holy See, comfortable lodgings in the Eternal City, and employment which shall give them

All young men of letters interested in attaining an education in the art of science of Botany may likewise travel to Rome and make themselves known at the University of Rome, where they shall be subjected to certain examinations. Should they pass, and they agree to enter a sacred contract with the Church itself that they shall labour in the name of God for a period of no less than five years, they may receive a full education at the University in accordance with modern principles of Botany (including Linnean taxonomy) financed by His Holiness the Pope himself.

The Gardens of the Vatican, Hortis Civitatis Vaticanae, were founded by the Empress Saint Helena of Constantinople using sacred soil from Mount Calvary, according to legend. His Holiness Pope Nicholas III established a new planted an orchard (pomerium), a lawn (pratellum) and a garden (viridarium) in the Year of Our Lord 1279, and His Holiness Pope Julius II commissioned the great architect Donato Bramante to expand it in the 16th century. Now, it shall once more be expanded, to include a building intended to house the University of Rome's botanical collections as well as a laboratory, an orangery and other necessary equipment and features for the maintenance of a botanical garden.

In addition, all travellers and sailors who have journeyed outside the bounds of Europe, from the Americas to Asia and beyond, who return with samples of rare plants, seeds, et cetera, so far unseen in the Old World, or other Botanical Discoveries of any interest, shall receive a significant reward from the University of Rome for its purchase, should it be judged by Roman scholars to hold any significance.

Become the heirs of Ancient Rome, the Disciples of Linnaeus and the Scions of Christian Science alike, young scholars of Europe. By finding new paths to further Chemistry, Medicine and Beauty, discovering the natural world that He made, you shall gladden the Lord.

"Nature is infallible and is the voice of God."

Antonio Vallisneri, in a letter to Louis Bourguet (30 August 1721).

LONDON, 1800 - Concerns are raised across the country as accusations are levelled that the government has refused to negotiate a peace with France and is instead committed to unending war! Although continuing the war remains largely popular, the prospect of the temporary tax on income dragging on unforeseeably, the impressment of men into the army and navy, the ever-present spectre of conscription, and the senseless loss of life in a war that ought to have ended, all continue to sour popular opinion.

Rumours have spread lately that some Whigs, having previously chosen to sit with Pitt's government, are crossing back across the chamber and joining once more the opposition to the government. With financial pressures on the economy building, as well as the loss of markets on the Continent and the failed harvests of 1799 and 1800 biting hard and stirring unrest and widespread hunger, divisions are even cropping up amongst the Tories.

Rumours out of the Parliament of Westminster's closed session in camera suggest that details and minutes of ongoing foreign negotiations - whispered to be peace - have been shared with the two Houses of Parliament by the Foreign Office.
