Proposal: Christmas Coup [UN]

Times out and passes 2-1. -RaichuKFM

okay I think its actually late enough—Clucky

If Clucky or RaichuKFM are the Despot, they cease to be the Despot. Repeal all dynastic rules. Roll a DICE2. If the result is a 1, Clucky has achieved victory. If the result is a 2, RaichuKFM has achieved victory.

this is a valid UN post as I lobbied the UN last weak and have not made a proposal since then.

note that unless you are the despot you cannot vote on this proposal while in the Christmas time Hiatus because that would require taking an action (spending Poweror Credibility) covered by a dynastic rule.

now we wait 9 minutes for someone else to ruin our party and then camp the re-hiatus time to pass this before enough against votes accumulate =)

Nice try.  But if nobody can vote on it, it’s not open for voting.

The Despot can vote for it. If this isn’t open for voting because some can’t vote on it, then would that mean a UN Proposal would be considered not open for voting if someone had no Power and no Credibility?

Very clever.

This sort of thing is the real reason we kept Agora’s holiday rule around for so long – because it leads to interesting scams. And this one is definitely interesting.

I’m pretty delighted by this.

Out of curiosity, either of you could have carried out this scam alone. Why share?

Josh: he/him

Ah, of course, it needs the one vote to pass.

Nicely done, particularly with it being someone else’s rule.

Clever scheme.  Congrats!
