Create a new rule titled “Resignation” with the text:

The Leader may resign if e appoints a successor who agrees to serve as Leader until the end of the dynasty.

 

From the Fantasy Rules Committee’s “Regular Ordinances”, their Core Rules.  Their “Dynastic Rules” are much more freeform than ours, and not recorded anywhere.  Looks like a fun game, wish I’d gotten a cooler rule.  This one, though, is totally applicable to what we do, except that our Emperor has much different powers than their “Judge”.  Rules at http://groups.google.com/group/frc-play/web/regular-ordinances-revised-oct-2007

for I could see this going core to pervent a dynasty’s doom if whoevers the “Leader” at the time needs to step away from BN. Thats happened way too often. Right Yuri? Lol.

oh, and @Excalabur: I actually play the FRC. It’s a good game normally, although it’s had a few bad dynasty-equivalents in a row (people making the dynastic rule-equivalents far too complex, making it too confusing to play). Its dynasty-equivalent turnover is a lot faster than BlogNomic’s; normally about 3 weeks.

ais523: The the anarchic nature of the game, that’s not really surprising.

I’m of the opinion that our dynasties are usually too long.

/Given/ the anarchic….

(Sometimes I can’t type, apparently)

I assume that “If there is no Leader, then the Acting Leader is the Leader for the purpose of the Core Rule entitled “Voting”, but not for any other Core Rules. (The Acting Leader cannot Veto Proposals unless they are also the Leader. )” from Rule 2.1.1 means that an Acting Leader can’t resign to end the current Metadynasty.

for It doesn’t actually say whether this is a dynastic rule…

From the glossary, “If a new rule is created by a proposal and its location is not noted in that proposal, that new rule is to be placed in the Dynastic Rules.”
