Grinding of the worst kind. As things currently stand, there is _significant_ advantage to frequently checking the blog to see if the lights have just turned off, so you can sneak off to another room and avoid being attacked (or, if you’re a Murderer, to attack before anyone can move away). This will be the… Hix 01/19/10 3 01/19/10
“Consecutive” questionnaire All rune sequences that we deal with this Dynasty are likely to be finite in length, so I think we can agree that it will be unnecessary to ever specify “finite sequence” from here on. We will, however, be needing to refer to one sequence being “inside” another, and the… Hix 11/06/09 3 11/06/09
Just saying… From the Ruleset: “Each Dynasty is headed by a single Player, known as the Leader” “When a DoV passes, all other active DoVs are failed, and a new Dynasty begins with the Player who made the DoV as its Leader.” “The Hiatus continues until the new Leader posts an Ascension… Hix 11/04/09 8 11/06/09

Skirmish 3: The Return of Charisma Notes on the most recent skirmish: Pharoh Necho gets -2 and +1 to Charisma from his abilities. Loki gives -2 to Charisma for each of Clucky’s Einherjar; Churchill raises Shakespeare and Hildegard to his level. Totaling up the Skirmish Ratings, Asgard clearly beats Folkvangr, and aaronwinborn has the highest, with… Hix 12/07/07 1 12/07/07

Skirmish 2: Electric Boogaloo Passed out Einherjar to the high bidders, and took the opportunity of an empty unrecruited list to run a skirmish (the skirmish rule needs work concerning this issue).
