Flavor text has no effect on the game.

Just fixing stuff.

By the way, Darknight’s vote is an abstention because Rodlen is his rival.

“Flavor text” is not defined by the core ruleset, so this would leave an ambiguous glossary definition for future dynasties.

Might be cleaner to have the relevant dynastic rules just say “block of italic text” rather than “flavor text”.

“Italicized text is not considered part of proposals or the ruleset and may be used to clarify proposals or rules with examples, notes, and flavor text.” (emphasis mine)

Italics in Gamestate documents are not covered by the glossary definition, only the ruleset and proposals.

Kevan’s point is that its not actually defined. Suppose we have a food dynasty and each player has a flavor. But because “flavor text” has no effect on the game, all those rules would have to be ignored.  against
