http://blognomic.com/archive/playing_it_by_the_book/ created a 'secret ruleset' called the Code of Conduct which could be enforced by anyone privy to it's workings. Also used by coppro in his Victory.
http://blognomic.com/archive/upsy-daisy/ - The scam that promoted coppro to Ultraviolet.
After three people (Bucky, coppro, and flurie) scammed their ways to ULTRAVIOLET clearance, a bug was discovered in the rules that made a bunch of actions invalid. After two equally-broken CfJs - one which left everyone unable to do anything useful, and another that would have made every core rule dynastic, a pair of proposals were passed to completely effectively reset the gamestate. One thing slipped through the cracks, however, and the Code of Conduct remained at the same URL, providing advantage to the three scammers who had previously gained access. When a victory condition was proposed by lilomar, coppro was quick to submit proposals to exploit the CoC for as many perversity points as he could. Given the relative apathy of other players at the time (nearing the end, coppro was the only one with pending proposals), coppro rapidly amassed the points needed to bring is treason down to -5 and secure victory.
The previous dynasty was won by Galdyn, who passed the mantle to lilomar.
In this dynasty, lars atomica changed eir name to 90000.
