Reformat the first paragraph of the rule Auctions as follows:

If no Auction is open, Louis XIV may make an Auction Post detailing some items upon which Noblemen can bid and the effect that those items would have. The Items in the Auction must consist of one item, randomly selected, from the Inspirations of each Location that has any Inspirations to choose from, which Louis XIV must remove from the relevant Inspiration lists and rename with a name of his choosing when the Auction is posted.

While an Auction Post is open, Noblemen may privately bid upon those items by sending a Bid Message to Louis XIV with the title of the Auction Post and the amount of Money or Power they would like to spend on each item.

A Nobleman’s Bid Message on a specific Auction is the last message that meets the criteria set out in this paragraph that they have sent to Louis XIV during the time in which that Auction Post was open. If a Bid Message is invalid for any reason then Louis XIV should notify the sender at their first opportunity, giving that Nobleman a chance to resubmit their bid, but any revised Bid Message still needs to have been received by Louis XIV before the Auction Post closes.

Add the following to the end of the newly-rendered second paragraph of that rule:

All Money and Power quantities bid must be expressed using only the ten numerical digits of the Hindu-Arabic numeral system.

I’m not real mathsy and don’t necessarily know how to add two numbers raised to various powers to each other, or compare them to each other. I acknowledge that this is a failing in me, not in bidders or in the rules, and as such it’s not something I can rule out with the Louis XIV Powers. As such, I’d rather only see bids that use actual numbers. I hope that this as worded has that effect - if it doesn’t then please point that out rather than scamming me because I don’t want to have to learn big boy maths while also fighting off coronavirus, please and thank you ?

I’m all for screwing with the King, but seeing as how the Ruleset no longer describes him as a stupid face…  for

The ruleset doesn’t need to be explicit about things that are self-evidently true.
