Proposal: Really No Last Minute Scams

self-killed failed by card

Enact a new rule, “DoV Legacy”:-

Any Resident who made a DoV during the Twenty-First Dynasty of Kevan which failed (excluding the Resident named Diabecko) is considered a Timewaster. While the current dynasty is less than two weeks old, Timewasters are never considered to have achieved victory.

This is what I was expecting Card’s proposal to be, from the title. There’s a greatly reduced incentive to spare the other players from speculative timewasting scams when a dynasty is clearly about to end, because the five-day delay on making a new DoV hardly matters at that point.

This rule can be repealed or vetoed upon ascension if it’s not needed. I don’t think this needs to be core, but maybe it’s worth considering a variation on it.

So basically any would-be final scam would have to be really good. I’m cool with that.

Yes, this is just meant to discourage someone throwing out a wild 1%-chance-of-success speculative DoV on the grounds that the “only” reason not to is the five-day timeout.

against Self-kill as this wasn’t needed in the end.
