Possible Constitutional Crisis I noticed a DoV and looked at how the victory mechanic works in this dynasty, out of curiosity. I noticed the following sentence in “Items” (see the rest of the rule for context): Rules that do not add an attribute are considered rules text that apply only to that item.… Purplebeard 04/11/19 3 04/11/19

Attack: Kevan Darknight, I hear our corrupt Warden plans to arrange your beating. Let’s put a stop to that, shall we? As it happens, one of the guards owed me a solid, so I’ve managed to arrange for a key to the Warden’s office and a few minutes of privacy. Let’s get… Purplebeard 09/24/15 10 09/24/15

...And We’re Back! The Bell has Tolled, and it looks like RaichuKFM did not survive the round.

Notice: Map Updated In case someone missed it: now that the proposal titled “Assassins About Town: The Sequel” has been enacted, the map has been updated to reflect the current positions of all active Assassins, and will continue to be updated as I Toll the Bell. Purplebeard 06/23/14 0
The Bell has Tolled Still, no one has died. IceFromHell has not made a post or comment in the last seven days and is now idle. If anyone had them as their Target, they should have received the identity of their new Target. Purplebeard 06/23/14 1 06/23/14
The Bell has Tolled I have received Notes from all Alert Assassins, so this Tolling is a tad early. Unfortunately, the numbering of the list in rule “Notes” had changed when the proposal named “This little light of mine” was enacted, which now prevents me from updating the map (instead, I had to send… Purplebeard 06/21/14 0

Assault: A Bull, Bullying us out of our Bullion The Minotaur sent a group of Harpies to raid the treasury and we could do nothing to stop them. Honour demanded that we replace the stolen Gold out of our own pockets, which we duly did, donating 3 Gold each. Purplebeard 06/12/14 0

Assault: Gryphon Visit The Gryphon came by again and circled the castle a couple of times. I was posted on the battlements at the time and kept my crossbow trained on it, ready to fire if it decided to come too close. Evidently, my presence there was sufficient to convince the eagle-lion to… Purplebeard 05/27/14 0
Insult to Injury We set out to patrol the highway, like so many other days. After our recent string of victories, we were confident that we could take on anything that crossed our path. Unfortunately, what crossed our path was an pack of big, angry orcs. Our standard weapons, or “poo-ny sticks” as… Purplebeard 05/26/14 0
Bull-Headed The Minotaur sent another group of skeletons at us, with predictable results. Those without a mace get 2 Gold. Kevan and I receive (30/11)*2 Gold, which rounds down to 5. I’m not sure if the previous result of 4 Gold was a miscalculation or if RaichuKFM interpreted the rule differently.… Purplebeard 05/20/14 1 05/20/14
What’s This? Game Actions!? We set out to fight some monsters and encountered a pack of harpies, who immediately took to the skies. Since no one had bothered to bring a bow, we could do nothing to fight them. After some awkward glances were exchanged, we went back to the castle and agreed to… Purplebeard 05/17/14 0

Raiding sectors Apparently there’s been some confusion about sector raids. The Firepower of a sector is determined by rolling X = 2DICE5; the combat roll then has to be rolled as N = DICEX. This means that Larrytheturtle barely survives their encounter with Andromeda and Larrytheturtle1 pops back into existence. Purplebeard 03/18/13 2 03/18/13
