All 7 votes were for Amnistar.  Long live Amni!
...and so ends the era of firsts… gloriously

If more than half of all comments containing counted for votes also contain the name of exactly one active Adventurer, the Adventurer whose name is included in the majority of those comments achieves victory.  If not, begin a new metadynasty.

Sorry to end it this way, but my schedule is about to become very full very quickly and I won’t be able to keep this up.  It’s been fun, though.  Thanks for a great dynasty.

In case you’re wondering, I will continue to try do as much as I can on the remaining party post until either this passes or it succeeds, whichever comes first.

for Kinda a pity that another great dynasty has to end do to real life getting too busy but it was fun. I vote for myself, Darknight, to run the next dynasty. I’ve been active almost straight on since the kaiju dyanasty, save for near the end of that same dynasty lol. I’d love a chance to run a dynasty but ik it comes down to who all you vote for lol

I am going to have to vote for Amnistar because he has done such a good job of playing Thog.  Plus, he was the first to complete the test (you might want to ask him how he did it, it is quite humorous).

lol I’m pondering that myself, since (no offence) Thog prob would get lost in a bucket lol

for But this was just starting to get fun.

And as much as I would like a meta dynasty, having an emperor is always a good idea. If Amnistar wants to run a very open ended dynasty where the emperor basically just has his veto in case any extreme proposals are passed, I’ll support him. If he doesn’t want to do that, I’ll re vote and either nominate myself or someone willing to do that.

I’m good running a general dynasty, I can keep an open dynasty or do one of my ideas, depending upon what people want.  Vote for Amnistar.

Also by request:

Amnistar opens his door.  The voices are telling him that beyond that door is what he truly dreams of, unicorns with banjos.


You find that the door is securely fastened.


Amnistar glares at his door then pouts and kicks it with his foot.

Nothing interesting happens, unless you consider hearing a slight grunting noise that did not come from yourself interesting.


Amnistar is used to hearing noises that come from places other than himself when there aren’t any others around.  He tilts his head at the door quizically and then says, “Hello door.”

You hear a voice that speaks to you:

Hello, Amnistar.  I am the Guardian of the Passageway to the Homeworld of the Human Race.  You may know it by another name, such as Earth or the Twin Planet.  Since you are talking to me, I must assume that you wish to enter the passageway.  But I must warn you: the path that you are about to take is very dangerous.  In order to aid you in your quest, I have been given the task of preparing you.

Therefore, I have prepared a test for you.  If you pass this test, I will let you enter the training grounds where you will be trained in all the necessary skills for your survival.  Once you have finished your training, you will be ready to go through the Passageway to the Homeworld of the Human Race.

Now, on to the test.

Question #1.  Which two previous rulers of Blognomic are actually the same person in real life?

Question #2.  How many Metadynasties has Blognomic had so far?

Question #3.  Who has the Blognomic member number of 1?  (Kevan has 2.)

Question #4.  Who are the two creators of the card game Dvorak the Nomic Card Game System?

Question #5.  What does GNDT stand for?

I will await your responses.


Amnistar sits and ponders a moment to think then replies.

Geran and Mike were the same person in real life.

There have been 3 recorded metadynasties in the history of Blognomic

75th Trombone has the member number of #1

Kevan Davis and his friend Ben created the DVorak card game.

GDNT stands for Generic Nomic Data Transfer

Amnistar the tilts his head and says, “At least, that’s what the voices tell me.”


The voice responds:


You answered 2 questions incorrectly.  Try again.

Geran and Myke were the same person in real life.

There have been 3 recorded metadynasties in the history of Blognomic

75th Trombone has the member number of #1

Kevan Davis and his friend Ben created the DVorak card game.

GDNT stands for Generic Nomic Data Tracker.

The voice responds:


You have answered all the questions correctly.  You may now enter the training grounds.

The door opens, you walk through, and the door closes behind you.

Note: This is where you will wait until the adventure actually starts.  Congratulations on being the first to complete this task!

for Amnistar

because that last post contained other names, just in case.

for lol ok ok, i’ll vote amnistar

Yoda:

08-04-2008 01:02:51 UTC

Told you it was quite humorous.

Amnistar:

08-04-2008 01:07:44 UTC

Alright, an idea that I had if people want it:

Political Nomic.

With it being election year, each Player is a candidate for the office of presidency.  Each candidate would have votes that they’d have to get through actions, and come a certain date the nomic ends and the candidate with the most votes gets the white house.

Yoda:

08-04-2008 01:09:47 UTC

Could be interesting, but you would have to set a date for the final election eventually.

Amnistar:

08-04-2008 01:16:47 UTC

Personally?  I was thinking of setting the date with the first proposal.

Rodlen:

Yoda:

08-04-2008 02:10:29 UTC

Ok, I have officially ended the Quest.  It was kind of a rush ending, so it may not have been as good as it could have been, but oh well.

By the way, don’t forget that this has to wait 12 hours before it can be enacted.

Yoda:

08-04-2008 02:12:53 UTC

And thanks everyone for such a great dynasty.  Hopefully, I will be able to come back and win again so I can head a dynasty that won’t end because of schedules.

But for now, I am going to go ahead and idle after the DoV passes.  Good luck, Amni.

Chivalrybean:

08-04-2008 02:56:30 UTC

I just recently had a pretty sweet idea for a dynasty, but I figure I’ll win eventually. I vote for Amnistar.

Darknight:

08-04-2008 06:26:05 UTC

hey bean, ya gonna use a vote symbol? ya vote for amnistar doesn’t count without a proposal vote icon lol

Darknight:

08-04-2008 06:28:07 UTC

One the flip side i’ll be happy for a background color change. I’ve lost track of my mouse so many times when it got into text icon lol

Amnistar. The fact you were my rival was really matter of picking someone with an interesting allegiance difference - I think youve played fantastically this dynasty, and deserve to run whatever the hell you like (I trust you).

I think I’ll actually, you know, DO stuff next dynasty.
