Add a new Core Rule titled “Metadynasties” with the following text:
If the Dealer leaves the game for any reason (i.e. he goes idle.), the game enter a Metadynasty period. During this time, any Admin may act as the Dealer as described in the Dynastic Rules until another Player achieves victory. This type of action is called a Dealer Action. If any Admin performs a Dealer Action that is explicitly limited (e.g. as a daily action or a weekly action), then no Admin may perform that Dealer Action again until the Ruleset allows it.
For example, if there is no Dealer and an Admin performs a Dealer Action that is stated in the Dynastic Rules to be a Weekly Action, then another Admin may not perform that same Dealer Action for the remainder of that week.
This rule will allow the group of Admins to take over the role of the Dealer if the Dealer goes idle. It should prevent the disaster that occurred in the last dynasty when Hix went idle.
