Proposal: The dark side path to victory

reached quorum, final vote 2-6—Yoda

In the Rule entitled “The End”, change the text:

the Protagonist dies and a new metadynasty begins.  If the Protagonist has not died


the Protagonist dies. 
If the Protagonist does not die

Add the following paragraph to the Rule entitled “The End” by inserting it right before the last paragraph in that Rule:

If the Protagonist dies, the Narrator shall roll DICEX in the GNDT, where X is the number of Characters with a negative Relationship.  Let the result of the DICE roll be n.  This roll will pick a Character, determined by iterating downwards through the Name column of the GNDT, starting with the top character and skipping any character with a Relationship that is not negative, for a number of steps equal to the result of the DICE roll minus one (A roll of ‘1’ corresponds to the top unskipped character in the GNDT, with 0 iterations performed).  The Narrator shall then publish the chosen Character’s name in a Story Post.  That Character achieves victory.

I do think that one of the problems right now is that all of the anti-Smith people are basically on a giant team against the few pro-Smith people, but this doesn’t solve that problem.

Giving the negatives a property right in victory—just letting the biggest negative win outright—that would eliminate the problem, since the minor negatives would have an incentive to go for an individual win and not the “allied win” that’s happening right now.
