Proposal : Farming Weekly

Enact a new Rule, "Farming":-

[ Eh, flailing for the beginnings of a new theme. Agriculture? ]

Subjects may choose to be Farmers. Once per week, a Farmer may select one of the following tasks to perform, updating the effects in the GNDT.

* Buy or sell a number of Sheep or an amount of Corn, at the current market prices.
* Breed their Sheep - their Sheep count becomes 110% of what it was, rounding down to the nearest sheep.
* Grow their Corn - they gain 2 Corn (even if they had none before).

The prices of Sheep and Corn are indicated by the Emperor's Sheep and Corn values, on a "price per one unit" basis. Once per week, the Emperor may alter these values, although never below zero, nor more than three away from their previous values.

Initial Sheep and Corn values shall be set at 5 Gold each. This paragraph will then remove itself from the ruleset.

[ Sheep and Corn will be added to the GNDT. ]

Enacted by Kevan, Tuesday the 15th, 10 Gold to Kevan.
Proposal : Team-Destroying Exercise [Trivial]

Repeal Rule 20 (Teams).

[ It was interesting, but a bit too fiddly. And it still feels too open to scamming; the Vizier buying loads of Lottery tickets, joining a Team with an accomplice, calling an immediate Lottery and splitting the magically created echo-gold. Etc. ]

Enacted by Kevan, Tuesday the 15th, 4 Gold to Kevan.

Proposal : The Female Highwayman

Replace the word "Highwayman" with "Brigand" throughout the ruleset. And "himself" with "themselves" in Rule 23.

[ Also by Kevan. ]

Enacted by Kevan, Tuesday the 15th; not quite Trivial, so 10 Gold to Kevan.
Proposal : Road Tax

[ This proposal is actually by Kevan; Blogger hasn't been letting me log in to BlogNomic for a few days now, but I've remembered I had the BlogNomic robot set up. I'll sort things out properly when I've got a bit more time... ]

In Rule 23 (The Highwayman), replace:-

"Once per week, the Highwayman may take 25 Gold from any player and give that 25 Gold to any other player."


"Once per week, the Highwayman may take one tenth of a Player's Gold (rounding down), and give it to any other Player."

[ 25 Gold wasn't very much at the end of the last round, but is a hefty amount now that we've all started at zero again. ]

Enacted by Kevan, Thursday the 9th, 10 Gold to Kevan

Proposal: Brainstorming Session

For a week following the passage of this proposal, any player may post to BlogNomic a post with a heading of 'Brainstorm'. These posts may include ideas for where to take the game, including, but not limited to, thematic ideas, vague ideas for new rules, or any other post with the general intent to get new ideas for rules.

[Just thought we could see what everyone is thinking, and try to bounce some new ideas around, just to get the new dynasty started with some fresh new rules.]

Failed by Kevan, Thursday the 9th, -2 Gold to Royce, 2 Gold to Kevan
