Heir Appointment Anderson Cooper. He is the most devoted Ball Tosser, finding Joy in the contest, and is the sole crowned Champion.

Notice of Violation After marking Tracking Conflict enacted, I erroneously concluded it was instead Unpopular and marked it failed. This falls into the same problem as the DoV, except that the gamestate updates had platonically occurred prior to the CfJ becoming illegal and thus weren’t prevented, and even though it’s illegal it can’t… Bucky 08/21/21 2 08/21/21

Protosal: Veto Conditions Brendan has threatened to deadlock the Universal part of the dynasty over Veto conditions. I think it would be more productive and on-theme to negotiate than to merely threaten. And that requires the veto conditions to all be explicitly spelled out. This is the starting point, after input from Clucky.… Bucky 01/27/21 8 01/28/21
Dynastic Vision First, the pun aspect of the dynasty. In one respect, it’s a simulation of a peace conference, with the Player as referee. In another, each Emperor is running his own nomic dynasty, with the Player playing all of them simultaneously. At this point we seem to be leaning more into… Bucky 01/25/21 2 01/25/21
Ascension Address: Summit It is a great honor for me to address the sovereigns assembled here. I understand that you have gathered today to settle a great many disagreements.

Reflection on dynastic mechanics The degree of Shell customization worked well and remained on-theme. The meme advantage was real but never overwhelming - it amounted to one or two extra shots per shell cycle at most. The Timed Action mechanic failed what seemed to be the main design goal of reducing the advantage gained… Bucky 01/23/21 18 01/24/21

Incremental Proposal Wishlist This dynasty still has some necessary work to hammer all the existing mechanics into a playable shape. Josh and I have been routinely hitting the 2-pending-proposal limit, with a lot of Josh’s proposals being dynastic vision proposals and about half of mine being simple bug-fixes. Meanwhile, half of our players,… Bucky 12/14/20 4 12/14/20
Abandon Shell Add a new subrule to the rule “Pilots and Shells”. Call it “Emergency Shutdown” and give it the following text: As a weekly action, a Jockeying Pilot may perform an Emergency Shutdown. When they do, they immediately become Recovering. This does not cause their Shell to be destroyed. Bucky 12/13/20 0
Protosal: Threading the attacks The current combat system is unacceptably spammy and unwieldy. It requires one blog post per attack, and we’re expecting each competitive player to attempt several attacks per day. Accordingly, we should borrow from the Nethack dynasty and combine all the attacks on a given Bogey into a single thread. When… Bucky 12/03/20 5 12/04/20
Circle Dispures. I’m reverting two Circle Benedictions made at the same time by Josh. 11-1 because a circle must be eight tiles, and 11-3 because a circle must set the center tile to the color of an adjacent (not diagonal) tile.The CfJ shouldn’t have ratified those either since it only affected color… Bucky 11/27/20 5 11/28/20

Speaking for Dynasty 141 I’ve set up the dynastic history page.

Interdynastic Survey For the purpose of helping future dynasties, I’d like some opinions on the current dynasty. Specifically: 1) Do you think this dynasty was successful or unsuccessful?
