Proposal: Of course you know, this means war!

Can’t reach quorum with 8 votes against, without a change of vote. Failed by Kevan.

Part 1:
Add a dynastic rule entitled “Color”, with text as follows:

Each Ant has exactly one Color, which is either “Red” (which may be abbreviated “R”) or “Black” (which may be abbreviated “B”) and which cannot be changed.  Each Ant’s Color is to be tracked in the GNDT.  New Ants are assigned the Color that is the opposite of the color of the Ant that was listed the lowest in the GNDT table immediately prior to that new Ant becoming active.  If an Ant has a Color, becomes idle and then de-idles, that Ant has the same Color that he had immediately prior to becoming idle.

Part 2:
Upon the enactment of this Rule, each Ant then listed in the GNDT acquires a Color as follows: the Ant listed first in the GNDT table becomes Red, the next becomes Black, and so on alternating down the GNDT table until each Ant is assigned a Color.

The idea being that the number of Red and Black Ants ought to be as equal as practicable, at least at the outset.

against Doesn’t define what color will do.

I don’t know I’m more for the cohoperative genre…
Winner I think it means that we split in two opposite teams.

There are so many open proposals that defining the effects of color at this stage would be premature.


13-01-2011 22:14:41 UTC

Yes, but I don’t think that will be fun because it will become very difficult to keep track of things and because we need to get 1000 food.


13-01-2011 22:21:02 UTC

against I’d rather see if a cooperative thing would work out. Later on, maybe

against CoV. Clucky has explicitly said he wants this dynasty to be cooperative.


14-01-2011 00:02:48 UTC

Then why the CoV if you were already deferring to Clucky?

against Per Darth_Cliche, and I’d also like this game to be co-op.


14-01-2011 00:25:57 UTC

against per blacky, darth et al

against Not to say colors couldn’t work for NPC ants, for allying or as foes.

Josh: he/they

for This doesn’t prevent the game being co-op.

imperial CoV per Josh. Good point, can co-op in teams. Clucky’s call though

against CoV I want peace!

Roujo: he/him

Co-op in teams will still be competition between players instead of between the players and the rules, which I would find interesting.

against CoV to against to speed the queue up, if Clucky isn’t voting.
