Proposal: Ruleset Amendments

Being a new player, I’m looking at the Ruleset quite a lot (taking into account that most of it went on in the last Dynasty and won’t be applicable), and I’ve found myself glancing at the Glossary quite a bit. Some of the terms were defined elsewhere, though, and not in the Glossary, where they probably should be. Therefore I propose the following:
- That the first paragraph of section 1.5, which currently reads:
Quorum is equal to half the number of Swashbucklers, rounded down, plus one.is moved to the Glossary, section 3.
- That new glossary items are proposed for the terms Dynasties, Hiatus and Metadynasty. As a new player, I am having a lot of trouble working out what the difference between a Hiatus and a Metadynasty is, and when a Dynasty actually starts and ends. This is excaberated by what appear to be inconsistencies in the ruleset, and the posts themselves - for example, these two quotes, both in section 1.9, appear on first glance to overlap:
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.and:
The Hiatus then continues until the new Captain posts an Ascension Address to the BlogNomic weblog…while a recent CfJ says that if it passes, action should be taken to:
* End the Hiatus, and the game will enter into a Metadynastic Period.
- That if I am deemed to be lawyering too much about the rules, I shall bonk myself on the head.
