Game actions stop, etc, until the DoV is processed and all CfJs are cleared.
Edit: Kevan and I were discussing such things in #Nomic today and we discovered a slight inconsistency in the rules. We have
Hiatus may not end if either of the following stipulations are false and ends once they are both true:
* There is no active DoV.
* There are no pending CFJs.
The Hiatus then continues until the new Captain posts an Ascension Address to the BlogNomic weblog…
Seems like we should resolve this one way or the other before we continue play.
