Proposal: Alan Alda Aloe

Not enough not voting AGAINST to reach quorum (player count is 13). 3-7. Failed by TyGuy6.

If any Player has a Symbol of “Ô, remove their Symbol from them (so that they now have no symbol).

Add a new rule called “NPCs” with the following text

NPCs are Players for dynastic rules only. Each NPC is defined as a subrule of this rule, with the name of the subrule being the name of the NPC.

Rules may refer to NPCs by their name without explicitly stating that they are referring to the NPC’s name.

give NPCs a subrule called “Alan” with the following text

Alan’s Symbol is Ã.

If a player believes Alan has achieved victory in the current dynasty (and that victory attempted has not already been ruled on or isn’t already being ruled on), they are encouraged to raise a CfJ declaring that Alan has achieved victory and further more, that as Alan is an agent of chaos, the dynastic rules shall be blanked, the Board Historian shall lose their position as Board Historian, and a new meta dynasty titled “The First Chaosdynasty of Alan” shall begin.

If “Let’s Tic-Tac-Go” passed then do all of the following:

Add the following to NPCs, before any subrules

As a daily action, a Player may cause a NPC to take a move on the grid. The rules of daily actions still apply to NPCs (so the same NPC cannot be made to perform make two moves within the same day, nor twice within a 10 hour period). Furthermore, each Player may still only make one move (either their own move or causing an NPC to move) every five hours.

Add the following to the rule “Alan”

When Alan makes a move on the grid, he always selects a random cell. Alan’s moves may bypass the requirement that only blank cells be selected, instead replacing whatever the contents of the cell that was selected with his symbol.

No interest in another meta right now.

For what its worth, its been a while since we last had a real meta dynasty. And I would expect a chaos dynasty to be pretty quick (either because we introduce a scam that lets someone win in the first few days or we introduce a scam that lets someone destroy the blog in the first few days)

Also Alan’s chances of actually winning seem low the chaos dynasty stuff is mostly there for laugh / deal with the ‘well what if alan wins’ questions. Still plenty of failsafes in place if he somehow does win but people don’t actually want to go that route (note there is nothing recommending people vote for the CFJ starting the chaosdynasty)

All true but nevertheless:  against

Give people the option for a meta and about half of them will start actively playing for the meta. I don’t want a meta; therefore I’d rather the option wasn’t there.
