A dubious scam by Josh led to an even more dubious victory.
Josh's first DoV was based on two very weak scams. The first scam utilised a very loose interpretation of the rules for enacting CfJs to rush through a pending CFJ that would allow him to create a new mortal. The second was based on the assumption that the mortal's name (which, as the creating mortal, he could chose) could have an effect on other parts of the gamestate.
Purplebeard disputed the second scam but accepted the first, and went so far as to instantly pass his own CFJ, granting himself victory and failing Josh's pending DoV. However, in his hurry he improperly adminned it, allowing Josh to revert it, force through an identical CfJ, and finally successfully claim victory.
I don't for even one second believe that that victory would have flown if the dynasty hadn't been deathly quiet anyway. Josh
Ed de Goey was a childhood hero of mine (and still is), and I've been known to insert his name into any conversation that is even tangentially related to football or the topic of awesome people. It feels good to have introduced him to blognomic as the focal point of an ancient prophecy. Purplebeard
