Declaration of Victory: How does One Quantify Satisfaction?

Reached Quorum 6 to 0 after 12 hours, with Narrator Voting FOR. Enacted by derrick

It has been a long voyage, fraught with drama and chaos. For much of the journey, We lacked a captain, and I had to do my best. We slew but a single beast, and a very unimpressive one at that. I do not know how I am still alive.

And yet, I feel a sense of accomplishment. My friends are alive. My ship is afloat. And I find myself content throwing off the cares of command and embracing the thrill of the harpoon. I am not a leader, but a harpooner.

I have achieved victory by having a reckoning of 6, far higher than any other active sailor.

As this victory is mildly irregular, I wish to share the choice of the next theme with my fellows. This is not a formal vote, but your input as to the best next dynasty will be given much weight when writing the ascension post.  The options I am considering are:
*A Contractor themed dynasty focused on secret bids and building the right team for a job whose requirements aren’t known until the last minute.
*An Exploration themed dynasty focused on the politics of funding large expeditions
*A Fantasy Civilization Building dynasty where wizards meddle with cities to see who can gain the most prominent place in legend. Focus would be on a card mechanic that I hope will fix the problems we’ve had with grinding

@Kevan, do you have any thoughts about what to do next?

[Derrick] No, no preference. Although the hand of thematic history would point out that bidding on construction contracts has already been done in the Theme Park dynasty.

for It could stand to be given another shot, honestly. That dynasty was pretty low-participation.
