The First Dynasty of Wakukee
December 9, 2009 - January 14, 2010
*Crash! Boom!* **Pyrotechnics**
“Mwa, ha ha! I am free! 10,000 years of slumber, I finally awaken! Free at last, free at last! Thank God almighty, I’m free at last! None shall reign in my infinite- eh? Adventurers? So you have freed me! I see how it is. Very well! In return for your services, I shall grant each of you three wishes, but beware, for I am required by law to tell you that Wishes have not been approved by the FDA, and are not available for purchase at local retailers. Consult your deity before using Wishes. Side effects include feelings of infinite power, corruption, and, in certain cases, death. *Chuckle… we shall see how many of you can survive your greatest desires… Choose wisely.”
Fail all pending Proposals. Repeal all Dynastic Rules. Change all occurrences of “Apprentice” to “Adventurer” and “Artisan” to “Djinn” throughout the ruleset.

- The Da Genie Code (created the concept of Relics, and made the Lamp a Relic): []
- Expressions of Interest (created more Relics: the Go-Faster Gloves, which obtained the holder to steal a Relic from another Adventurer at the same location, and four Amulets. Holding all four Amulets was a Victory Condition). []
ais523 used all three of his wishes to move everyone to Funafuti (thus resetting the timer for awarding relics), shrinking the entire Earth to a point (causing everyone to be in the same location as every relic), and wishing that the Djinn (who was Darknight at the time) chose ais523 to award a Relic to if he could ever legitimately choose more than one person. These circumstances presumably would have resulted in _someone_ being able to declare victory after 24 hours elapsed.
Spikebrennan then almost immediately posted a DoV, reasoning that since Spikebrennan held a Relic that contained a Location, and all Locations were now identical, that all Relics were therefore in Spikebrennan's bag and therefore owned by him. This failed to pass.
Kevan then wished that he had been in Funafuti for the previous 23 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds, thereby beating everybody else to claim all unclaimed Relics (incuding three of the four Amulets) by operation of the 24-hour component of the Relic rule (without triggering the wish prohibition against undoing a game action "more than 24 hours old"). He then used the Gloves (one of the Relics he thereby obtained) to grab the fourth Amulet from alethiophile, thereby fulfilling the Victory condition and declaring victory. The Victory depended upon the Djinn's interpretation of the Relic rule that only the Adventurer in question, and not the Relics, had to be in the hiding place for 24 hours, but once this had been ruled, the Djinn's opinion was binding.

Later, lars atomica made a wish to change the header to this:
One could also call this the 1.5th dynasty of Darknight, since Wak so wonderfully idled part way into it lol. --Darknight

Wakukee has chosen to name this Dynasty "The Djinn Djinasty" rather that "The Djinn Dynasty" for purely aesthetic reasons.
