Proposal: Politics as Usual

Passes 8-0. Enacted by Brendan.

Adminned at 21 Sep 2016 22:55:34 UTC

Add a new dynastic rule named “Gerrymander” to the ruleset with the following text:

As a Daily Action taken no more than three times per week, a Councillor can Gerrymander. When a Councillor Gerrymanders, they choose one block of Auld Anchorage and change its Constituency to any other Constituency. When changing the Constituency of a block, the following rules must be followed:

* A Constituency may not have 8 or less blocks.
* A Constituency may not have 12 or more blocks.
* All blocks in a Constituency must be connected to all other blocks of that Constituency in one continuous group.

for Feels a bit tit-for-tat, but may as well get things moving.

How did people find the “Daily Action taken no more than three times per week” mechanic last dynasty? It seemed a bit opaque for requiring players to comb through the GNDT log to see if a particular opponent (or if they themselves!) had any actions left that week.

I disapprove of the use of the word “less” in this proposal.

I also find “Daily Action no more than three times per week” a bit fatiguing to think about keeping track of.

imperial Does “Daily Action taken no more than three times per week” mean that any given person can do it three times, or the entire player base can only collectively do it three times?

Brendan: I intended three times per player per week, but I can see the confusion. I’ll propose a clarification once the queue clears.

Funny that we didn’t notice this problem with a similar wording last dynasty. I’ve gone ahead and proposed a fix myself.

for Less and fewer is a pretty silly distinction, to be honest.
