Proposal: An Introduction

Exceeded Quorum, 7-0. Enacted by JonathanDark.

Adminned at 04 Dec 2023 20:54:22 UTC

If “Jumping Straight into Marriage” failed, this proposal does nothing. Otherwise:

Add the following subrules to Marriage:

Prospect True Love:

Description: Marrying for love can make you a better person, but alas, it’s considered political suicide.
Requirements: Since the most recent time you joined the dynasty or nominated a Successor (whichever is most recent), you must not have Married.
Benefit: For the purposes of all rules except “Features” and “Marriage” (and its subrules), you are considered to have no Flaws. You cannot perform Acts of Subterfuge.

Prospect Land Owner:

Description: They might not be noble, but they’re wealthy and respected.
Requirements: One of your Estates must have a Prestige which is higher than the median Estate Prestige.
Alimony: Set the Palatine of one of your Estates to the Old King. If you are the Palatine of an Estate, reduce its prestige by 3.
Gift: You may create an Estate by choosing a name for it, setting yourself to be the Palatine, and setting its prestige to DICE5.

Prospect Politician:

Description: There’s more than one way to get your say in the Tyngwall, though you may end up overshadowed.
Requirements:
Benefit: You are considered to be a Parliamentarian, irrespective of any criteria you do not meet. When you would gain reputation from gaining a Claim from the Appraise any Claim action, you instead gain 0 reputation.
Alimony: Your flaw becomes Impoverished, and you lose all Wealth from your resources.

If the proposal Domesday did not pass, remove “from the Appraise any Claim action” from the rule Prospect Politician.

If my other proposal fails, I’ll repropose this to work with whichever version of the marriage rules we end up with.

I think there should be Alimony for True Love. Maybe you gain a Flaw as a result of suffering a heavily emotional blow from divorcing your True Love?

Unfortunately, I’ve seen this too late to actually make an edit. I figured that the benefit had such a big downside that it doesn’t need to be too penalising though, especially since you’d lose the Faithful claim on top.

No worries. We can always add it later if necessary.
