Proposal: More heroic Lemurs

I thought we contained Mad King Anthony…

Adminned at 08 Jul 2008 10:36:49 UTC

Add a new Dynastic Rule to the Ruleset.  Call it “Decoration” and give it the following text:

Through exceptional performance, DDA members can earn the attention, approval and patronage of the High Command.  Each DDA member has a certain number of Commendations, tracked in the GNDT.  New DDA Members have 0 Commendations.  If a DDA Member ever has more Commendations than the Commander, that DDA Member has proved to High Command that he is capable of command himself and gets promoted over the DDA Commander’s head, thus achieving victory.

The subrules of this rule cannot cause the DDA Commander to gain Commendations, although he may still gain Commendations by other means such as proposals.

Add a subrule to the rule called “Decoration”.  Call it “Medals” and give it the following text:

When a DDA Member’s Piloting Skill becomes 10 for the first time, he is awarded a Hawk’s Feather for his exceptional skill.  He gains 1 Commendation.
When a DDA Member’s Gunnery Skill becomes 10 for the first time, he is awarded an Eagle’s Talon for his exceptional marksmanship.  He gains 1 Commendation.
When a DDA Member has more than 40 Lemurs for the first time, he is awarded a Hero’s Tail.  He gains 1 Commendation.
Whenever a Containment Post is successful, the DDA Member who used the most Energy on that Containment Post, or Members in case of a tie, is awarded a Cross of Courage.  They gain 1 Commendation each.
Whenever a Spacebattle ends in which at least one spacecraft has been destroyed, each crew member on a spacecraft that wasn’t destroyed is awarded a Star of Service.  They gain 1 commendation each.
A DDA Member with enough experience may spend 100 Experience to gain a Square of Seniority.  He gains 1 Commendation.
If a quorum of comments on a proposal containing valid votes on that proposal also contain the word “Epic”, and the proposal passes, the DDA Member who proposed it is awarded a Pentagon of Penmanship.  He gains 1 Commendation.
As a Daily Action, the DDA Commander may award one other DDA Member a Hexagon of Heroism.  That DDA Member gains 1 Commendation.

Set everyone’s Commendations to 0 except for the DDA Commander.  Set the DDA Commander’s Commendations to 7.  For the purposes of the rule “Decoration”, the DDA Commander has already been one of each Commendation in that rule except the Hexagon of Heroism, and thus cannot re-earn the first three commendations.

against How about the unfinished rules get finished before a victory condition?


07-08-2008 05:34:01 UTC

for lol though it’ll prob be the same with rodlen


07-08-2008 05:36:41 UTC

I mean, you can quickly win through this.


07-08-2008 05:38:55 UTC

veto No such thing as spacecraft being destroyed.


07-08-2008 05:39:36 UTC

Rodlen:This dynasty’s stagnating.  It needs a clear victory condition more than it needs a working space combat system.  What’s your beef with this proposed rule?


07-08-2008 05:39:46 UTC

whoa?!? how was it rods post did show for me till like 5 mins after i posted? and i think it’ll take some time rod. most of the ways center on skills and space fights and i doubt most folk would let someone spam for the others lol


07-08-2008 05:41:11 UTC

Well, because the space combat does not work, part of this does not work.

To be exact, the part that refers to something that does not exist.


07-08-2008 05:45:29 UTC

That can be filled in later, just like “a successful Battle” in the rule “Gaining Experience” is undefined.


07-08-2008 05:51:16 UTC

Plus, who volunteers to look through the GNDT archive to find every 10 skill points and 40 lemurs?


07-08-2008 05:52:46 UTC

it says for the first time rodlen. easy to spot


07-08-2008 05:59:34 UTC

Okay, I’ve worked out the minimum time to win from these rules alone.  It takes exactly 48 hours involving 6 Pentagons of Penmanship, a Hero’s Tail and a Square of Seniority or Cross of Courage.  But that requires everyone’s cooperation to the degree that you could just pass a proposal that says “Bucky Wins” instead of one of your six Epic proposals.

In summary, a quick win is highly unlikely unless an infinite experience loop happens.  And I know better than to let one of those into the Rules.


07-08-2008 13:19:20 UTC

If this wasn’t vetoed, I would say for .  I think Rodlen needs to get over his fear of victory conditions.


07-08-2008 13:42:54 UTC

I’m going to repropose this rule in about 10 hours.  I would like Rodlen to refrain from vetoing it until it has at least two against  votes.


07-08-2008 14:40:16 UTC

I agree with Yoda and Bucky
