Proposal: Fail State

Timed out 4 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

Add a new dynastic rule, called Fail State, with the following text:

The DSV Haniver has an amount of Hull Pressure Integrity, which is publicly tracked and which defaults to 200.

As a daily communal action, any Memory of Atlantis or the Linguist Team may Apply Pressure. Applying Pressure is an atomic action with the following steps:

* If a Memory of Atlantis has taken a dynastic action or posted a proposal that affects the dynastic rules or argument in the preceding 24 hours then this instance of the Applying Pressure action ends with no further steps taken.
* Calculate the number of whole hours since a Memory of Atlantis took a dynastic action (other than Applying Pressure) or made a proposal that affects the dynastic rules.
* Subtract that number from the Hull Pressure Integrity.
* If the result is zero or lower then the game immediately enters Interregnum. Start a new Metadynasty by making a post in the Ascension Address Category containing only the text “A new Metadynasty has started”. The player called Josh ceases to be the Linguist Team.  Repeal all dynastic rules.

Metadynasties are often considered to be dynastic failure states, and I think it’s increasingly clear that this dynasty ain’t a winner.

Giving it a bit of a fuse in case anyone wants to unexpectedly win, or wants to keep on doing core ruleset tinkering.
