Reword “Apocrypha” to:-

As a Daily Action, but not more than three times in a given week, the Editor may Visit the Archives by either:

  • Selecting a random previous Dynasty with an archived Ruleset, then selecting a random Dynastic Rule from the final version of that Ruleset (not counting subrules for the purpose of this random selection), including as many of the rule’s subrules as they deem appropriate. (The Editor may use a randomization method of their own choice for this action.)
  • Selecting a rule (and any number of its subrules) as specified by a Map which has not been used before during a Visit to the Archives, and whose date has either arrived or passed, and whose rule it would be possible to select under the previous bullet point.

Upon selecting such a rule, they may copy its text and add it as a new Dynastic Rule to the current Ruleset, replacing the terms for Emperor-analog and Player-analog with “Editor” and “Scribe” as appropriate. The Editor must then Mark it as Provisional.

If adding such a rule would create a new victory condition, the Editor is not permitted to add it, but may instead Visit the Archives again without this counting towards the weekly or action limit.

A Scribe may spend 1 Paper to draw a Map. Upon doing so, they should privately contact the Editor with a message specifying a single Dynastic Rule (including any number of its subrules) from any Dynasty, and any date; this is known as a Map.

This has the minor issue that we don’t know when the Editor declines to add a randomly selected rule, or (in general) anything about Map usage.

It’s also questionable from a dynastic theme perspective, hence the DEF.
