Revision as of 11:05, 12 January 2020

This is a record of significant changes to the Core, Special Case and Appendix sections of the rules, which returning players should be aware of.

18 August 2015
A Slack channel was introduced, eventually replacing the old IRC channel.
(date missing)
The "Imperial Deferentials" Special Case rule, when switched on, makes Emperor DEFERENTIAL votes default to the majority (rather than being null votes). Such votes are often cast when a proposal is more about gameplay than game design, and the Emperor wants to leave the decision to the players.
10 September 2017
The Special Case top-level section to the Ruleset was created and various miscellaneous rules that were previously proposed as needed or had been clogging up the Core rules were moved there from the previous Core rules.
12 September 2017
BlogNomic now becomes "dormant" if there are fewer than five active players, switching off until new players join.
8 May 2017 
Proposals and CfJs now explicitly require a "[Core]" tag in their title if they are to amend Core rules, and the same for Special Case / Appendix edits. This is largely to prevent "change all X to Y" proposals inadvertently overwriting Core ruletext.
23 January 2019
Core scams are no longer acceptable under Fair Play rules.
8 July 2019
Some dynasties have a 'Traitor' who is given permission to lie and betray (with no requirement for this status to tie into the dynasty's mechanics)
8 November 2019
The GNDT is replaced with an embedded wiki page and a separate dice roller script.
