Proposal: [Core] Term Limits

Self-killed. Failed by pokes.

In “Victory and Ascension”, at the end of the first paragraph, add

The UNSG cannot achieve victory.

Although I’m concerned about a scenario of this type: suppose the Western bloc achieves a joint victory. Have we actually not, since I’m in it, invalidating the entire bloc’s claim to victory? Something to watch out for writing win conditions later.

In case anyone brings up that the Emperor could go corrupt and use their Emperor advantages (for example, secret info, the most common thing) to benefit their own group to get the win, the Emperor can actually do that in any dynasty in exchange for interdynastic favors.

Provisional greentick from me. Not locking this yet in case others want to add improvements because this is a Core proposal after all.

against More seriously than joint victories, this wording would make it illegal for the UNSG to passively meet the criteria for victory (if the rule was “a player with 25 IE has achieved victory”, a gamestate shift that put the UNSG there would be entirely invalid). The original wording of this rule prevented the Emperor from declaring victory, which seems a better way to go.

(I might try reverting the Core ruleset to the old single-Emperor wording, when I get some slots back.)
