Proposal: Catch 22

General consensus says that the General’s Orders are getting ridiculous, and sometimes democracy in a military hierarchy comes down to the fact the grunts at the bottom after the only ones holding rifles and machineguns. The General’s influence is dwindling… could something dramatic be around the corner?

Reporting, Devenger.

[ Was about to idle myself, but hey, this is Nomic, I might as well try repealing the reason I was idling in case a silent majority actually feel the same. Having to keep track of complicated and borderline-contradictory orders has its place, but I’m not finding it much fun in the context of an ongoing, daily background game. And I get enough of it at work. ]

Repeal Rule 2.7.4 (General’s Orders) and Rule 2.7.2.3 (Following Orders).

imperial If people aren’t enjoying it that’s fine, it’s pretty much the central idea to the dynasty though, so if people aren’t liking it the theme will shift :P.

I agree, but I guess if this does not pass, it isn’t too bad too have low loyalty. Practically everyone has broken his rules!

If it’s the main theme, that’s fine, and in the grand tradition of the Paranoia RPG; I just haven’t got the energy to keep on top of it all, right now.

yea, that’s kinda the idea I was shooting for, something along the ideas of Pandora, with the evntual end result being the general’s death and combat rules being reworded to have high loyalty vs. low loyalty, in an epic clash.

..Pandor=Paranoia in my mind…

Well, if Amni’s gonna vote imperial, then I might as well vote for. There’s nothing wrong with the dynasty, though; we just need to keep it simple.

against Keeping track of multiple contradictory orders is the sort of thing I personally enjoy. Besides, it is at least realistic…

I’d rather keep Kevan around than keep these order thingies.

I’d be back for the next dynasty, don’t mind me.
