I have been eagerly waiting for Captain’s Declaration of Victory. If you’ll forgive the non-spivak pronoun, he has been an inspiration to me. He has challenged the ruleset on all fronts, coming up with delightful scams and even exploring some of the long standing holes in the ruleset, such as our lack of provisions for naming conflicts. This has been good for blognomic! We need to re-examine what we take for granted in the core ruleset from time to time. And that is not the limit of Captain’s generosity to us! He has shown us that there is more to the game than the ruleset itself, there is the social meta-game: confusing posts, ominous threats and deceptions off all kinds can extend the game in ways some of you may have never thought of. But not me. You see, I’ve learned from the master.
This Declaration of Victory is the culmination my careful study. I think it shows clever social engineering, a challenge to our traditions and a very creative reading of the ruleset. I feel that sums up Captain’s role here at Blognomic, and I hope you now find that I have held that role as well. I know that it may not have been evident three days ago, but that was my deception: luring you into a false sense of security. I may or may not continue to hold this role into the next Dynasty. See, you never know what I might do.
If Captain’s DoV is legitimate, I certainly hope you think mine is as well, and in the spirit of continuing in my role of ‘Captain’ I ask that you give priority in your voting to my DoV, or else something terrible will happen to the gamestate.
