Proposal: Constitutional Cleanup

Timed out, 3-2 with 2 DEFs. Enacted by JonathanDark.

Replace the first two paragraphs of “Claims” with:

Claims are defined as subrules of this rule. Claims should be contained between the templates {{Flair top|Claim box}} and {{Flair bottom}}; if one is not, any Heir may edit the ruleset to add the flair.

Each claim has
* a type (Minor, Irremediable, or Standard, defaulting to Standard)
* a nonnegative integer value for Strength
* one or more Conditions
* a disown list

Each Heir may hold zero or more Claims; this is publicly tracked. An Heir whose name is on the Disown list for a Claim is never considered to meet that Claim’s conditions.

In “Marriage”, after the sentence that begins “Where a subrule of this rule begins with Prospect,” add

Prospects should be contained between the templates {{Flair top|Prospect box}} and {{Flair bottom}}; if one is not, any Heir may edit the ruleset to add the flair.

In “Tyngwall”, move the sentence “A Meeting of the Tyngwall takes place each Sunday at noon, to shape the future of the Kingdom.” to immediately before the sentence that begins “Each Meeting of the Tyngwall”. Add section headings to make subrules of “Tyngwall” as follows:

* Subrule “Parliamentarians”: From “The Tyngwall is made up of 120 Parliamentarians…” to “...Barons and landholders in the Kingdom.”
* Subrule “Meetings”: From “A Meeting of the Tyngwall takes place…” to “...non-Heir Parliamentarians will propose.”

No gameplay changes, just some flair and copyedits to keep things organized. Examples of flairs and other changes can be seen here:

imperial A lot of whitespace (or orangespace) in the Claims here, it may read better as a table.

against I agree that it would read better as a table.

I would vote for a proposal (or I might make one) that makes it a table, I was just trying to change as little as possible about the claims themselves.

against Not sure this is needed. Feels a bit of a shell game moving stuff around. I don’t see a scam, but why take the risk?

There is no scam, I just want to make the ruleset easier to parse. I’m actually starting to get tired of these accusations with zero basis.

I personally just don’t like the ruleset being one big wall of text because it’s harder to navigate and keep track of where things are, especially on mobile.
