Call for Judgment: Anything else would be boringer

Fails 2-4. - Qwazukee

In rule 1.8 “Dynasties”, Replace

Each Dynasty is headed by a single Tourist, known as the Tour Guide, and is named according to the number of Dynasties he has headed (eg. “The First Dynasty of Myke”).


Each Dynasty is headed by at most one Tourist, known as the Tour Guide if there is one, and is named according to the number of Dynasties he has headed (eg. “The First Dynasty of Myke”). If a Dynasty is not headed by anyone (i.e. there is no Tour Guide), it is known as a metadynasty, and named according to the number of metadynasties that have existed (e.g. “The Third Metadynasty”).

Repeal all dynastic rules. Rename Tourist to Player and Tour Guide to Emperor.

Start a new Dynasty with no Tour Guide.

The consensus seems to be that this dynasty has become boring; with no obvious way to stop the boringness, ending it via CFJ seems to be the only nonboring action available. (Not a proposal, because I’m concerned that dynastic rules may make it unclear as to whether a proposal worked to end it or not; but a CFJ can do anything.) Although there isn’t an obvious disagreement, I feel that this aspect of the game needs urgent attention, and the CFJ is legal for that reason.

Note that this CFJ can be closed after 2 days, because there is a Hiatus currently.

against Why endure a metadynasty when you can have me as your emperor?


24-07-2009 01:01:33 UTC

against Because you just had a dynasty.


24-07-2009 01:19:51 UTC

for This being a bit better than several other alternatives.

CoV against

CoV for  Because of the “Sub-Dynasty” idea (please look at the Compromise comments.)

oh, explicit author for. Just because it’s a metadynasty doesn’t mean it can’t have a theme…


25-07-2009 23:47:45 UTC

ais: there has never even been an unthemed metadynasty.

arthexis: he/him

26-07-2009 17:52:44 UTC

There has. The very first one.


27-07-2009 00:35:14 UTC

That was the Hat Metadynasty.

Currently 2-4.
