In the rule “Bounties”, change

If the Demon King believes that an enacted votable matter satisfies the demand of an open Bounty Notice then they may iterate the Bounty Reward Variable of that votable matter’s author by a single step (unless that author was themselves) and set that Bounty Notice to closed.

If the Demon King believes that one or more enacted votable matters satisfy the demand of an open Bounty Notice, then they may iterate the Bounty Reward Variable of each Baron (other than the Demon King) who authored at least one of those votable matters and set that Bounty Notice to closed.

When it comes to marking a bounty notice as closed, would the expectation be to wait until all pending proposals that would satisfy the demand are resolved, rather than just closing it immediately on the first one being enacted?

Not specified, and in practice it’d probably depend on how close the proposals are to each other.

More important, I think, is that the bounty could be collectively awarded if successive proposals gradually satisfy the demand.

Okay. I’ll vote in favour since it leaves it up to the emperor to decide on a case by case basis, but in practice I’ll likely only consider groups of proposals that are within a couple of days or so at most. If a proposal builds on one from a week ago to satisfy a bounty, I’ll likely ignore the older one.  for

Fair enough. If a Baron proposes a partial fulfillment of a very complex bounty like siege warfare and gets his follow-up proposal preempted due to lack of slots, that’s one thing. If this results in only the preempter getting the bounty, the bounty discourages incremental progress.

If the Baron proposes a partial fulfillment and leaves it hanging for a week, that’s another.
