Proposal: The Enemy of my Frenemy

Add a new rule called “Alliances” with the following text:

Each Kaiju strives to form alliances with the other contenders for the throne. Some such alliances are made known to all; others are negotiated silently, sometimes with half of a partnership unaware it even exists.

Each Kaiju has a Right Claw and a Left Claw, each of which is the name of another Kaiju, which may not both be the same, and which may not be themself. The Right Claw is a public alliance, and is tracked via a text field in the GNDT. The Left Claw is tracked privately, by the Attendant. Both of these properties default to nothing.

A Kaiju may, as a Daily Action, change their Right Claw to the name of any active Kaiju besides themselves or their Left Claw by updating the GNDT and making a comment to this effect; OR may change their Left Claw to the name of any active Kaiju besides themselves by sending a private message to the Attendant to this effect. (Doing one of these things counts against the daily limit for doing either.)

A Kaiju who does not have a Right Claw and a Left Claw each set to a valid, active Kaiju may not take actions under any Dynastic Rules but this one.

Out of interest, were there any alliances going on at the end of the last dynasty, or were people just offering Carvings without really thinking about it?

I did a bit of quiet recruiting for the Black Roses, but I had not made any alliances for the purpose of achieving victory.

Hmm, just realized this has a flaw about who you’re allowed to choose for your Left Claw in paragraph three. I’ll patch it later.
