Call for Judgment: Out of Memory

Popular, 8-0. Josh

Enact a new rule, “Denouement”:-

The Past Memory may not take dynastic actions.

A quick straw poll to formalise whether we feel that the dynasty has now moved into a phase where we aren’t expecting the Past Memory to process any further memory/pocket actions (given that proposals are now being voted down for having mechanics which won’t work fairly without input from the Past Memory), and we should move to wrap up. If this enacts, we can work out a rule we all agree on for final scoring.

Hoping all’s well with Naught, and that they’ve been offline for entirely boring or positive reasons this past week.

for  if only to wrap up. I think I have an idea on 3 actives and one idle role wise if we go that route

I’m planning to wait until the Past Memory actually idles before voting.

(Also, is there a reason for this to be a CfJ rather than a proposal? Is it just so that it can be enacted out of order?)

Given that it’s affecting the voting on older proposals and that the outcome will change the proposals and actions that we choose to take over the next couple of days, yes, it seemed important to resolve it quickly.

Also reduces the window of uncertainty for Naught, if they return briefly to the game with only a few hours spare today or tomorrow, and are forced to make a call on whether to process pending actions.

I guess one advantage to making this a proposal would have been that it’s the sort of ruleset change where you really want a veto available. (I guess you could have done some sort of EVC check for that, but it’s too late now.)

Being able to enact out of order is a good enough reason to make it a CfJ, anyway. (Sometimes I think that BlogNomic’s queue system hurts non-scam gameplay quite a bit, as in a case like this; but there’s no denying that it makes scamming more interesting, both in terms of using it for scams, and in terms of using it to prevent scams.)

for Assuming I haven’t messed up the calculations, naught is past the idling limit now.
