Proposal: Intradynasty

Timed out / quorumed 5 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

In “Fail State”, replace the final bullet point with:

* If the result is zero or lower and no Memory of Atlantis has yet Forgotten the Language, then any Memory of Atlantis may Forget the Language by adding the paragraph “This remainder of this rule is flavour text.” to the start of every dynastic rule (other than this one) that doesn’t already have it.

Per the Road Trip dynasty’s endgame reset, a nobody-won situation might be better kept as a short final act in the same universe where we decide what to do next, rather than a full metadynasty.

Wrangling the wording on this one to avoid an atomic action making itself flavour text while it’s happening, I think the existing Fail State may have the same problem: if a step in the atomic is “repeal all rules” and “For the purposes of determining the ordering or legality of game actions, the time of an Atomic Action shall be the time that it is completed”, that means the action was performed at the same time that the rule defining it was repealed. If the rule didn’t exist at the time you performed the action it defined, it seems like the action would be against the rules.

That’s an interesting one. I think that an AA *should* have to be carried out under the rules as they were when it was started, regardless of how it changes during the doing, to prevent timing scams of proposal enactments by accomplices midway-carried-out (a scam I’ve tried to get going before but which people are weirdly squeamish about); clearly the ruleset doesn’t support that read though
