Declaration of Victory: Never Underestimate Exponentials

Passes 8-0 after 12 hours and a vote from Josh.—Clucky

I have obtained a dung pile with base value 1200 on my workbench. By rule 2.11 I have obtained victory.

After my bonus fund’s from also fair passed, I had 480 funds. I built a dung pile, which had base value 600 and the large modifier. As I hadn’t used my sell this week, I sold it to get 1200 funds and build another dung pile to get the ultimate project.

(Sorry Josh, I know you were looking forward to a brick-off)

Damn, I hoped I could overtake you before you reached the critical amount of funds.

Well I could see that one coming.

for Blah.  Well-played.  But did you have to *call* it a dung-pile?

FWIW, I’ve found this dynasty to be terribly fun.  Are they all this good?

for Technically it counts.

Idle FOR. =P

@Subrincinator: I find that most dynasties are good if the players give them a chance. Sometimes they don’t appeal to my tastes - thus my idling this one -, but they’re still good.

@Winner: And that’s what Nomic is about. =P

@Winner: If you saw it coming, why didn’t you warn Josh =P


08-01-2011 16:21:48 UTC

I think Josh saw it coming, too.  The dung pile was his idea, after all…


08-01-2011 16:51:15 UTC

@Clucky: Why should I? :D

Josh saw it coming later, but he was like “1200 is a lot harder to get to”. Probably expected he had another week or so and could get the brick off out by then.

for I didn’t google the sell-to-repeat scam, but that’s my own fault.

Sorry the dynasty was a bit slow! Glad people enjoyed it though.


08-01-2011 18:12:35 UTC

And so the world finds out that dung is good for something after all.

@Subrincinator, RE:Dynasty quality - In my opinion, this dynasty was about average.  It was functional and ended naturally rather than via boredom.  Although it had a reasonable main mechanic, it didn’t have much in the way of supporting mechanics.

If you want to see what an above-average dynasty looks like, check out the archived ruleset from the Second Dynasty of Brendon.

...which, by the way, is one number higher than it should be. We skipped “Ruleset 82”, it seems like.

Nicely done. This looked like a good dynasty, shame to have missed it.

for Nah if you want above average then look up the werewolf dynasty lol.
