Proposal: Not all Nobles were created equal

Timed out and failed by Ienpw III (2-3)

Append to the rule “Monarchy”:

The current holder of The Crown is tracked at the top of the Peerage wiki page. A Noble claiming The Crown must announce the claim in a blog post. It is Outrageous for a Noble to claim The Crown more than once per Advancement of Time.

Enact a new subrule of “Monarchy” entitled “Royalty”:

Every Noble has a numerical statistic called “Royalty” and tracked in the GNDT. Royalty is equal to (Knights+TitlesHeld)*(OccupiedParcels+GreatWorks)*(Dignity+Wealth)/(1+TotalParcels), where those factors are pertaining to the individual Noble in question. Any Noble may update each and every Noble’s Royalty at any time, except when Time is being Advanced. The Noble with the highest Royalty value may claim The Crown at any time and is exempt from the rule “Seizing the Crown”, if it exists.

A more hollistic and straightforward approach. Also less gutsy; real King material plays it safe. Is it too late to encourage intrafamilial support?

against Why penalize a large amount of Total Parcels? And this utterly fails to allow for intra-House support.

It’s not penalizing a large amount of total parcels; it’s penalizing unoccupied parcels. As long as the number of occupied parcels is close to the number of total parcels it’ll pretty much cancel out.

But why penalize Unoccupied Parcels? It’s not like they are somehow worse than no Parcels.

Oh, this was meant to go in that post: If it cancels out, then they aren’t properly rewarded.

Actually, CoV for. Godspeed, Skju.

I admire and thank you for your good judgement and kind regards, Ienpw. After all, some Noble must have the highest Royalty.

Bah, you are not even a Duke! I have more claim to Royalty than you, and I have no illusions I’m worthy of the Crown! Were this to be calculated fairly and not to blatantly favor its author, I could support it. But no, you punish large amounts of Parcels, as if Wealth held is better than Wealth used, merely as otherwise you have competition in this.

against In addition to already raised problems, I think taking the crown should be risky and gutsy, and shouldn’t happen civilly.
