In “The Bulletin Board”, replace “one favour from the Seller” with “one favour lended by the Seller”.
Uphold all Favours legally gained from previous Bulletin Board transactions this Dynasty as having that transaction’s Seller as their Lender.

liiil wording clarification! to make sure bulletin board favours aren’t self-owed for the silly reason of “ur action granted u this favour therefore u are the lender”

Is “Uphold all Favours legally gained” a typo for “illegally”? By its definition, Upholding explicitly only applies to illegal actions. (“To Uphold an illegal action is to…”)

I think it’s to avert upholding cheaty Favour gains by an unscrupulous enacting admin.

I’d go with “otherwise legally”.

against Since “Uphold all Favours legally gained” has no effect (if they were legally gained, no need to uphold them).

ahhh, i guess “otherwise legally” was needed yea; i just figured that if they were legally gained but technically should have their buyer as their lender, upholding them as having a different lender would still prase :‘o

for The ruletext change is necessary even if the “uphold” rider doesn’t quite work.
