Proposal: Shallow Conclave

Reaches quorum at 8 votes to 1. Enacted by Elias IX.

Enact a new rule, “Conclaves”:

A Cardinal may call a Conclave if no unresolved Conclave exists, by making a blog post to this effect. To be legal, a Conclave must name a number of Roles: X Scrutineers, X Infirmarii and X Revisers, where X is one third of the number of Cardinals, rounded down. The Roles for each Conclave must be determined randomly by the Cardinal calling the Conclave, such that no Cardinal has more than one Role in a Conclave.

If a Cardinal has posted a comment on a Conclave which consists of the single phrase “I elect as Supreme Pontiff X.”, where X is the name of a Cardinal other than themselves, and has posted no other comments of that format on that Conclave, then the comment is considered to be that Cardinal’s Ballot for that Conclave, electing the named Cardinal.

If a Conclave has received a Ballot from every Cardinal, then any Scrutineer may resolve it: if more than two thirds of the Ballots on that Conclave named the same Cardinal, then the Scrutineer announces that white smoke has been released; otherwise the Scrutineer announces that dark smoke has been released.

How to elect a Pope. Not wiring this into a victory condition just yet, though.

imperial Also, it might be tricky if we have to wait for every player to respond and somebody stops paying attention.
