Proposal: Gas or Lean

Timed out 1 vote to 3. Failed by Kevan.

Add a new rule called “The Big Race” with:

An EM, 72 hours after this rule was added to the Ruleset, can declare that The Big Race Begins, by making a blog post with “The Big Race Begins” as its title.

After 168 hours of that post, an EM can declare that The Big Race Ends, by making a blog post with “The Big Race Ends” as its title. At that moment, the EM(s) with the most Super Cars are the Race Winner(s), and the The Big Race Ends post must also clearly indicate which EM(s) become the Race Winner(s).

A Race Winner can gain any non-negative integer amount of Merit Assets (up to 5) as an Annual Action.

Add to the list of Assets the following:

- Merit:
- Race Funding: Increase MGTA by 30 when you acquire this. You can spend an Annual Action to turn this into a Super Car. When you do this, the MGTA also increases by 30.
- Super Car: You can only gain this via Race Funding’s Annual Action. If you haven’t, you lose this Asset (but congratulations).

Adding a non-MGTA-healthy way to gain Merit, in contrast to the other healthy way.

Also, I was inspired by this new trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gm_ABHGbk3o

against Unnecessary rewards for being the person lucky/awake enough to end the race, and best not to have a synonym for “victory”.

[Kevan] from the wording I don’t think Race Winner is synonymous with Victory, I think Cuddlebeam meant that the Race Winner wins an event within the dynasty rather than being the victor of the whole dynasty, if you see what I mean?

Some Nomic scams involve writing a rule which reads superficially one way, but which can also be read in a more literal sense. I’ve no idea how a DoV of “I am the Race Winner, in other words I have achieved victory in the race, therefore I have ‘achieved victory’” would play out with the current voters, so am voting against finding out.
