Proposal: Two guys walk into a Nomic…

Passed 18-1.—alethiophile

Create a new dynastic rule with the title ‘The Sultan and the Grand Vizier’ and give it the following text:

The Adventurer with the current highest Power value is the Sultan. If two or more Adventurers share the highest value, the Sultan position is vacant. The Adventurer with the current highest Corruption value is the Grand Vizier. If two or more Adventurers share the highest value, the Grand Vizier position is vacant. The Djinn is explicitly ineligible for either role, and the values of his respective stats shall not be included when determining who has the highest value.

The status of the Sultan and Grand Vizier is indirectly tracked in the GNDT by virtue of the values in the Power and Corruption columns.

Just an idea to add more thematic flavor to the game. I’m sure there’s some fun stuff that we could allow/force people in those roles to do.

for  Though please, when saying how a stat is tracked, put it in the rule itself.

for It’s pretty obvious how “current highest Power” is tracked.

@Kevan: Yes, but he explicitly said, within the proposal but outside of the rule, where it’s tracked.

I guess I should have put it in the flavor text. Basically, I was just trying to forestall complaints about “how is it tracked”, not to have the tracking mechanism embedded in the rule. If, in the future, it makes sense to have a “titles” column, it could be tracked there for example.

for but as I started to read, I was expecting the vizier to be the guy with the /second/ highest power.  If someone has the highest of both—which considering their relationship, seems likely to happen—are they their own vizier?

You know, I honestly hadn’t thought about it like that. I’d potentially be open to supporting a “fix” proposal if you have anything else you’d like to add/change.
