The First Dynasty of Aaron
June 27, 2005 - August 3, 2005
Well, it would appear that our old, great, and (even) wise teacher Socrates has gone and offed himself with the old one-two; hemlock and tea. Although it is unclear how exactly Socrates wanted his legacy remembered, I've decided that since I wrote the most stuff about him, I'm just going to go ahead and assume he liked me best. I'll try to run the Academy with his memory as my guide and continue the pursuit of the Good, the True and the Beautiful. Nevertheless, there needs must be some changes first, because there's a whole lotta mess in this here Athens. It doesn't look very ... Athensy. Furthermore, I would like some folks to get started on building that Acropolis that Socrates liked to talk about whenever he had too much drink. ... Oh, ummm, it would appear that I am talking to a blank wall. Hmmm, I shall convine a council of Socrates' closest and most studious pupils as soon as I have found them.
change Illuminatus Rex to Philosopher-King change Illuminatus to Disciple change the colour scheme to something more Athensy repeal rules 11 through 20 (including, but not limited to, both rules 17) clear the gamestate such that only player names appear thereon
Proposals of Interest
Towards the end of the game, there was some connection between winning spelling competitions and being able to update the ruleset directly.
When Philosopher-King Aaron became Idle, Josh claimed that Aaron "no longer exists in the Gamestate", and thus Josh could spell better than him, by being able to spell at all. Josh thus changed Rule 24 to "Josh may declare victory at any time. This rule supersedes all others." and posted a successful DoV shortly thereafter.
