Declaration of Victory: Tekeli-Li

Reaches quorum against, 0-7. Failed by pokes.

Adminned at 05 Jul 2017 22:15:04 UTC

Getting this in before the stars change. I am a Cultist at the Mountain Camp, am not at Gunpoint, and very strongly suspect that I have a number of Artefacts equal to a quorum of Cultists. I place them into three tapering cracks in the mountain rock, and stare up into the starry void, awaiting judgment.

Sphinx will of course have to confirm whether I have enough Artefacts, before anyone can really vote on this.

Well let’s see, 5 cultists from the HR report, so that’s a quorum of 3. So unless one of the new players is a cultist, which makes quorum rise to 4, you have victory.
Each time someone gets their backgrounds it’s a 69.44% chance that they are not a Cultist. Since there’s two people you need to worry about, there’s a 48.22% chance you’ve achieved victory if both new people have backgrounds.

imperial

[card] Pretty much. I’m hoping that the chances of new players requesting backgrounds and having been assigned them yet brings that down low enough.

(Deferential votes don’t do anything on DoVs, although it might make sense if they did.)

The dice have fallen, but they have not fallen in your favour.

(I’ll get to a new HR report later today, since we have two new players)

Ah, oh well.

[Sphinx] To double-check - you’re voting against because at the time I made the DoV, it wasn’t the case that I had “a number of Artefacts equal to a quorum of Cultists”? I was banking on the lack of HR report suggesting that you hadn’t processed the new players since they’d joined.

Sphinx, did you get my background request?

I think quorum has been reached (if Axemabaro’s didn’t count).

pokes:

Indeed.
