Proposal: The Core of Tracking [Core] [Special Case]

Timed out / quorumed 5 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 20 Nov 2023 16:13:22 UTC

Append the following to the end of the rule “Ruleset and Gamestate”:

The gamestate tracking page for this dynasty is the Duel Sheet page of the wiki. Unless otherwise stated, all publicly tracked gamestate information is tracked on it.

In the rule “Victory and Ascension”, add the following step to the end of the Atomic Action mentioned in that rule:

* Optionally change the gamestate tracking page referred to in the rule “Ruleset and Gamestate” to a different page that does not exist and does not start with the word “Ruleset”.

Repeal the Special Case rule “Dynastic Tracking [Active] [Standard]”.

not sure if having this as a special case rule makes sense anymore

Looks like we’ve only switched it off once since it was created, and that was an experimental deactivation of all Special Case rules, so maybe.

Shouldn’t just drop it in unchanged as a new rule, though. “The Battle Master may change the wiki page referred to in this rule to a different page as part of their Ascension Address” would be much better as part of the “Ascension” rule alongside the existing player/emperor keyword change, and the general declaration of a gamestate tracking page can be part of “Ruleset and Gamestate”.

edited, thanks
wording is maybe a little clumsy? (not sure if changing the page to one that doesn’t exist makes sense)

I don’t think it does make sense, no. At least not by my cursory reading

for Seems okay to me.

“for this dynasty” would read better as “for the current dynasty”, to match the second paragraph of 1.1, but the core rules could use extensive, mundane copyediting at some point anyway.

Part of me feels that if it’s not broken don’t fix it. But this seems fine for
