Proposal: Dogecoin

Add a new dynastic rule called “Coin”:

Each Elector has a score for Ducats, which is a non-negative integer that defaults to 100 and which is privately tracked by the Doge. An Elector may, at any time, transfer Ducats to another Elector by sending the Doge a private message requesting the transfer, containing a positive amount of Ducats to transfer and the name of the recipient. If the sender has sufficient Ducats and the recipient is not idle, the Doge processes the transfer by reducing the sender’s Ducats by the amount transferred and increasing the recipient’s Ducats by the same amount. Otherwise, the Doge informs the sender of the reason the transfer failed and does not process the transfer.

If the rule “Bribes” exists, replace all instances of “Political Power” in it with “Political Power and/or Ducats”.

If the rule “The Masquerade” exists, add “Their Ducats” to the bulleted list.



Introducing a fiat currency to use for trading/bribery that is not directly tied to voting power.

imperial (another ‘how much is the Doge willing to do’ vote)

think it might be more interesting if it wasn’t privately tracked, to keep it different from political power.

I was figuring it would fit the dynamic of secret deals and hidden information better this way.

against Similar to my comments on Favortown - I like the use of currencies to strike secret deals and am very interested in ways of obfuscating what is happening in the shadows but don’t think we should be using the Imperial black box too much - I prefer things having to be done in veiled ways but in public.

against SK, I’ve got some ideas for a semi-public approach to fit the “public, but obfuscated” philosophy.
