The Seventh Dynasty of Bucky
24 January 2021 - 20 Febuary 2021
It is a great honor for me to address the sovereigns assembled here. I understand that you have gathered today to settle a great many disagreements. I further understand the need for an impartial speaker to direct and mediate the proceedings, who is not himself a party to those disputes.
But I’m a humble musician! I was hired for your entertainment. I know nothing of courtly affairs, statesmanship or diplomatic protocol. Given that the stakes are world peace against total war, perhaps your most august selves should consider a speaker who has even a modicum of training, and let me work the clavier in the background as is my duty.
Fine. If sole necessary qualification is that I’m the only one present who is not a member of anyone’s entourage, and my ignorance is no obstacle, so be it.
Replace Ansible Hanger with Placeholder in the rule “Dynastic Tracking”. Repeal all Dynastic rules (as I’m breaking from my tradition of retaining exactly one) and inactivate all Special Case rules.
Replace Poindexter with Player and Pilot with Emperor.
The following players were active at the start of the Dynasty:
The following players were active at the end of the Dynasty:
Brendan*, Bucky*, Clucky*, Darknight*, Josh*, Jumble, Kevan, Pokes*, Raven1207

After interest in the dynasty fizzled, a proposal that gave its Signatories power to edit Treaties was made. Pokes and Jumble attempted to exploit this to edit Treaty of Versailles so that Jumble could win, but it failed on grounds of the edits not being convincing enough. Josh, Brendan and Clucky soon afterwards did the same exploit more successfully, but the exploit allowed Kevan to declare Victory as well. An attempt was made by Kevan to get his DoV to enact first by denying the other proposal Quorum, but ultimately failed when Raven voted FOR on both and Jumble flipped for a 10% share. Josh's DoV enacted first, and he won the subsequent 45/45/10 dice roll between Brendan/Josh/Jumble.
