Proposal: A Fantasy World Where Qualifications Matter

Timed out 1 vote to 2. Failed by Kevan.

Add to the end of the rule “Government” the following:

In addition, if upon completion of an Election, a single Councillor fulfills all the following criteria:

  • They are part of the Party that is In Power
  • They are part of the Party that has Grassroots Support
  • They are Popular
  • They have more Will than any other Councillor

then that Councillor has achieved victory.

It is about time for a victory condition, but: Charm is currently in Power, has Grassroots Support, and is supported by The Bowery, so Brendan would only have to pledge allegiance to the Charm Party to win immediately, here.

I’m not sure other players would be able to put up enough of a fight, and most would be at a big disadvantage by having already locked in their Party.

Would you consider a CoV if I set myself to another party? I really don’t know what more logical set of victory conditions is out there; this one is just a collection of all the goals of the various rule systems we have in place.

From the current gamestate and recent player behaviour, no: Quincunx is also in a very strong position, meeting all of the first three criteria. The fact that they’ve just built a Church in a useful place for you in The Bowery makes me wonder slightly if you’ve cut a deal to discard your Will and let Quincunx take the win.

I haven’t, but hit me up if you’re reading this, Quincunx.

(It’s actually a pretty aggressive move against me: I can’t claim that for Will now, and since it can’t be gerrymandered, I’m now anchored to that corner of the map.)

I’m reading.
(That was more or less what I thought.)
