Proposal: -Insert zeeky boogy doog here-

Vetoed again.  Chronos has probably set a new record for most vetoes without getting voted out of office.  Failed by Excalabur.

Add to subrule War:

When the game is in a state of World War, countries may only post or accept market orders to or from other countries which are in the same alliance. Countries who are not in an alliance may only post or accept market orders to or from other countries without an alliance, save for the Hegemonist, instead (providing that ey are not at war with such a country). The Hegemonist may not post or accept market orders at all. FORCED buy and sell orders are an exception for the purposes of this paragraph.


In subrule Market Making, change

The Hegemonist will always accept a Market Order if, and only if, one of these conditions are true:

to

The Hegemonist may only accept a Market Order if one of these conditions are true:


Change the last sentence of subrule Order Processing to read:

If the target country and the issuing country are in the same alliance, or if it was targeted at the Hegemonist and e was able to accept it but didn’t, the issuing country shall not be fined.


That should cover it. It was weird for Chronos to have to accept market orders from countries who were invading him anyway.

veto Offending text (“The Hegemonist may not post or accept market orders at all.”) is still there. I suggest this redaction:

When the game is in a state of World War, those rules shall be applied, supreseding any other:

* Countries may only post or accept market orders to or from other countries which are in the same alliance.

* Countries who are not in an alliance may only post or accept market orders to or from other countries without an alliance, save for the Hegemonist, instead (providing that ey are not at war with such a country).

* The Hegemonist may not post or accept market orders at all. FORCED buy and sell orders are an exception for the purposes of this paragraph.

The way you are writing it, only the first point is conditional to a World War state. All others are inconditional.

And, BTW,  I see no problem in complying with orders from invaders, since the purpose of those rules is warranty a market (but I’ll not veto it on those grounds)

You not being able to accept market orders was a personal choice, but I see where you’re coming from.
Expect a reproposal once the other ones get failed (or feel free to propose a version you’d prefer if you’ve got nothing better to do with your proposals).
