Add a new dynastic rule called “Voting Blocks” and give it the following text

An Honorable Member may belong to one or zero Voting Blocks. By default, an Honorable Member does not belong to a Voting Block. The Voting Block that an Honorable Member belongs to is tracked in the GNDT in a column called “Voting Block”. If an Honorable Member does not belong to a Voting Block, this field is blank for him.

As a Weekly Action, an Honorable Member may Join A Voting Block by changing their Voting Block field in the GNDT to one or more English words, each of which have the first (and only the first) letter capitalized and separated by a single space. The string must be at least 3 characters in length, and no more than 20 characters in length. Upon doing so, they cease to be a member of whatever Voting Block they previously belonged to (if any).

If an Honorable Member belongs to a Voting Block and another Honorable Member belongs to the same Voting Block and has cast a Vote of FOR or AGAINST on a proposal, the former Honorable Member may not cast a FOR or AGAINST vote on that proposal. Instead, their vote is the same as the Honorable Member who belongs to the latter Honorable Member. This holds even if the first Honorable Member casts a DEFERENTIAL vote on the proposal (but he may still cast such a vote for the purposes of having a EVC). If two or more Honorable Members belong to the same Voting Block and have each cast a Vote of FOR or AGAINST on a proposal, the Vote of the Honorable Member who cast their Vote earliest shall be used for all membeqrs of that Voting Block.

(thought I posted this earlier, but was having trouble with cookies)

basically, you can join a group and then you all vote as one. We need the conflict line incase I vote on a proposal, you vote the other way, then we later become members of the same block.

Has this mechanic been tried before? I’m generally distrustful of team mechanics.

Clucky, you appear to be idle.
