Ascension Address: Your New Office

Pushing open the door with the blank nameplate, you find yourself in a new but identical windowless office, on what feels like a higher floor. On the cheap grey desk sits a manila folder announcing proposed changes to the organisation’s committee system, and a red and a green pen. In the wastepaper basket, some coffee-stained memo paper and a colourful deck of cards. A wall clock ticks.

Change “Reader” to “Clerk” and “High Arcanist” to “Director”.


The following players were active at the end of the Dynasty: Kevan*, moonroof, quirck*, Tantusar*

Final Ruleset

Ruleset 135

  • Wage Avoidance introduced the Investment Committee, who could remove money from players


As the only person on the Executive Committee, and after slowly using the Supply Committee to lower the player requirement for the Executive Power to be used, Kevan posted an Executive Motion to award himself victory. When it enacted, this automatically gave victory to the player with the higher Appraisal score: Quirck. Quick chose to pass the mantle to Moonroof.


This dynasty was inspired by Reiner Knizia's senatorial negotiation game Quo Vadis?, which I still haven't played. --Kevan (talk) 12:11, 4 July 2019 (UTC)
