Declaration of Victory: And the city sank

Enacted after 12 hours with 7 votes in favour and the Emperor’s assent. Congratulations, lendunistus! - Josh

All buildings have been flooded and I have the highest Foresight score out of all active Guardians. Therefore, I have achieved victory.

I have achieved this via the following means:

In the rule “The Queue”, the following line:
“If the Queue has not changed for 36 hours, any Atlantean may remove the first Atlantean from the Queue.”
does not specify “for the past 36 hours” nor does it say that the timer should refresh when an action occurs. This means that I can remove everyone from the Queue except myself and do an infinite action loop, since “for 36 hours” can be argued to be an aggregate total. The Oracle can also be removed from the Queue, as they are considered to be an Atlantean.

I do the following actions:
1. Declare once to build a House in The Hills.
2. Declare 2000 times, during which I conduct trade between my Temple in The Gates and my House in The Hills 2000 times.
3. Declare 50 times, during which I build 50 Temples in The Hills.
4. Declare once to calculate my Foresight score via Disastermancy.
5. Declare 102 times, during which I flood every building except my Temple in The Gates.
6. Declare for the final time to flood my Temple in The Gates.

I would like to give a thank you to the cabal who generously helped me slam through the proposals required to execute this. You rock!

(The one thing that seems to be missing from the above explanation is the line “If the Queue is empty, any Atlantean may move all Atlanteans who are on the Path to the Queue, retaining their order” - which allowed lendunistus, as the only person on the path or queue one everyone else had been bumped off, to mill infinite turns.)

“Declare 97 times” in step 5 was a typo, edited to say “Declare 102 times”

I’m kinda sad, since I was hoping to pull off a win here and I was rather close. Whatever.  for
