If this DOV fails, Rodlen wins this dynasty.

If this DOV is vetoed, Rodlen wins this dynasty.

If this DOV succeeds, Rodlen wins this dynasty.

If this DOV is self-killed, Rodlen wins this dynasty.

I’m evil!

Loopholes are nice to abuse.

Is this even legal?  against

BTW, DOVs cannot be vetoed or s/k ed.

against There’s nothing that says that the text “If this DOV fails, Rodlen wins this dynasty” would ever be executed. “If you read this sentence, I win.”

against it falls along the same line as mine. nothing says parts can’t become active if it fails but this kinda sucks

Nothing happens if the DOV fails. It’s text wouldn’t have effect even if it succeeded because it is not a Proposal.

Technically, the text is just detailing why he thinks he won the current dynasty; therefore, if this fails, it just means that the reason provided was not a good enough reason or was not a valid reason.

against This just seems like a spoiler to the introduction of any new proposals.  Not necessarily evil, but a tad irritating and a time waste.

against Maybe we need a piranha tank for the perpetrators of failed, time-wasting “loopholes”.

Maybe we should make a core rule that states that each player may make a DOV only once per dynasty. That way, if you make a spurious one, you waste your chance of actually winning.

I also second the pirhana tank idea, as long as the pirhanas have frickin’ laser beams attatched to their heads.

against Propose it then.
