Proposal: Tree Tea

Self-killed. Failed by Kevan.

Adminned at 16 Oct 2019 09:43:59 UTC

Create a new rule called “Treaty” with the following:

An EM can post a blog post that details restrictions to dynastic actions of one or more EMs, titled “Treaty: X”, where X is a title of their choice. Such a post is a Treaty. An EM can sign a Treaty by making a comment to that blog post that clearly indicates this intent (eg. “I sign this” or a picture of a signature of their persona in the game). An EM that has signed a Treaty is Bound to it. An EM cannot perform dynastic actions that would breach the restrictions described for them in a Treaty they are Bound to. EMs are, by default, not Bound to a Treaty, and the only way they can become Bound to it is by signing it.


Kevan: he/him

against Strong piece of theme, but I don’t like the idea of adding in what are effectively rules the group didn’t vote for, which may be poorly written, or not even written publicly at all. What are other players meant to do if I make and sign a Treaty of “Kevan cannot take the action he has written on a Post-It note”, and then take every game action once?

Proposals seem like they’d do the job here. If two countries want to make a pact that only affects themselves, they shouldn’t have difficulty attracting supporting votes from unrelated ministers.

imperial I really like the theme though, maybe we could re-work it somehow?

Also, the clear intent clause could be standardized to an exact phrase. But no big.

Now I want to write a Proposal titled “Treaty: not a Treaty” and write a rule describing that, say, pokes cannot take dynastic actions. Would you sign or vote?

Jk jk.

It would be posted before this passed, of course, to avoid confusion.
