95 Reasons for War (Swabian League)

You are the Captain of the Swabian League, controlling most of south-western Germany after Ulrich, the former duke of Württemberg, had been exiled with your help. He has since fled to Switzerland and adopted Lutheran faith. Reports indicate that he has gathered sufficient Swiss support to return and retake his duchy, by force if need be. Meanwhile the Emperor is propagating his motto of "One Empire, One Faith, One Emperor" and is counting on your help to keep the southern parts of the Empire true to him and the Pope. However, the population is unrestful. There are rumours of peasants preparing uprisings, many people seem to favour the Lutheran view, especially among the lesser nobility that would welcome a way to get rid of the regular tributes demanded by the church. Nevertheless the majority still sticks to Catholicism. Moreover, even with France in the west and the Ottomans in the east as enemies the Empire is still a force to be reckoned with and with the Lutheran heresy threatening the unity of the faith the bond between Emperor and Pope is stronger than ever. On the other hand the Swiss have quickly adopted the new faith and could prove powerful allies just as they are fearsome enemies. The position of France in this remain unclear. They seem eager to deliver a blow to the Emperor by supporting Ulrich, but France is still a catholic monarchy and might be reluctant to support a full scale protestant uprising.

A decision must be made: Stay true to the Emperor and face war with the Swiss and Ulrich von Württemberg, or adopt Lutheranism and wage war on the Empire together with them?
