Proposal: I Realized That I Forgot to Make My Previous Post a Proposal and it’s Too Late To Fix It

Create a rule called “Parallel Parallel Dynasties” with a Persistence value of 3:

As a Cresi Action, a Maestro Team Member who is Focused on a Dynasty may perform an atomic action called Dynasty Duplication with the following steps:
- Create a copy of the Dynasty which is your Focus.
- Set its number to the number of the numerically first Prime Dynasty with no existing parallel dynasties
- Set the ordinal for the duplicated parallel dynasty as follows: if the name in the Emperor field for this parallel dynasty has appeared before, either in another preceding parallel dynasty or in a Locked Dynasty, then the ordinal for this dynasty is one higher than it was in the most recent such other dynasty in which that name appears as Emperor (e.g. if the name for a new parallel dynasty is Dibjutor, and there is a pre-existing dynasty with an ordinal of third, then the new dynasty will have an ordinal of fourth); otherwise it is the default.
- Add, remove, or change one letter in the new Dynasty’s Theme. The new theme must obey the following three properties:
- 1. It may not already be contained within the list of Parallel Dynasties
- 2. All words appearing in it must be valid English words or BlogNomic terms
- 3. If the original theme contained the words “The” and/or “Dynasty” the new theme must contain those words as well.
- Add the name of the Maestro Team Member performing this action to the Temporal footprint of the parallel dynasty being discovered (if the Temporal Footprint did not already contain that name).

I’m not quite seeing what this gives you that a normal learning of a dynasty doesn’t.

It’s mainly just another way to create Parallel Dynasties without having to use the Paralleliser :P.  (I’m not sure if you saw, but the original title was “Are We Really Going to Parallelize 200 Dynasties”).  It could also be used to make Parallel Dynasties that have particular properties if you need that; I don’t think there’s anything super useful you could do with that right now but (e.g) if you need to make a Dynasty with a particular Style or if Temporal Footprints become more relevant later then it could be useful.
