In “Unitemporal Translation”, rewrite
No Time Monk may have a Lost Dynasty as their Occupied Dynasty. If a Time Monk’s Dynasty is ever Lost, their Occupied Dynasty is set to 100.
If a Time Monk has a Lost Dynasty as their Occupied Dynasty, they may not perform any actions under the Dynastic Rules of that dynasty, or change their Occupied Dynasty, until that Dynasty is no longer Lost.
Append to the same rule the following:
Some Dynasties may be Banished, indicated by an exclamation mark beside that Dynasty in the Dynastic History list on the UTD. If the Time Buddha feels that the Historical Information for a Dynasty is impossible or unreasonably difficult to find, they may mark that Dynasty Banished. If the proper Historical Information has been added to a Banished Dynasty in the UTD, the Time Buddha may remove the mark, after which that Dynasty is no longer Banished.
If, at any time, a Time Monk occupies a Banished Dynasty, their Occupied Dynasty is immediately set to a random Dynasty. Time Monks are encouraged to message the Time Buddha if they believe that their Occupied Dynasty should be Banished.
The first change means that Time Monks are forced to update the UTD for Dynasties they land in. The second provides an escape clause for dynasties whose rulesets are lost or difficult to find.
