Proposal: Pandora’s Watch

Fewer than a quorum not voting against. Failed 2-4 by Kevan.

Add a new rule called “Escapement” with the following text:

Each Player, including the Emperor, has a number of Ticks; this is tracked in the GNDT. A Player who has never had their Ticks set before has one Tick.

If the total Ticks among all Players other than the Emperor is greater than the Emperor’s Ticks, and the current date is after November 11th 2016, then: the current Dynasty ends, the Emperor ceases to be Emperor, a new Metadynasty begins, and all Dynastic Rules are repealed.

Set the Emperor’s Ticks to 144.

for Although we should watch out for “I can no longer win, so might as well crash this into a metadynasty” situations.

ShareDVI, weren’t you interested in a clear mechanism to avoid a shutdown? That’s exactly what this is. Triggering a metadynasty before the deadline would repeal the doomsday rule, but Matt’s proposal eliminates that part.

Didn’t the doomsday proposal fail?

Indeed it did, but I’ll be reproposing it once people’s concerns have been addressed.

against CoV to keep the queue moving, as the next two proposals will overwrite this whatever happens.
