The Sixth Dynasty of Brendan
(TODO: save banner) June 16, 2016 - August ? 2016
Ascension Address: Editor in Charge
This? THIS is the result of your years of work, you ink-stained wretches? I finally make time for a simple, pleasant decade’s sabbatical, only to return and find the Codex a disorganized mess! Piles of half-completed pages in untidy stacks! Slumping heaps of material no one has ever skimmed, much less considered in the light of canon! There’s a whole room in the back overrun with silverfish! This whole operation is… is… is a palimpsest!
All that ends today, children. Whatever your quibbling personal interests in this material, I have a mission to perform, and I intend to see it through with or without you. Either you get rid of this apocrypha and distill it into the One True Ruleset… or I will.
Repeal all Dynastic Rules except “Two-Player Mode.” Replace “Moderator” with “Editor” and “Hunter” with “Scribe” throughout the Ruleset.
The following players were active at the end of the dynasty:
Aft3rwards, Brendan, Bucky, Clucky, GenericPerson, Larrytheturtle, qwertyu63, RaichuKFM, Sci_Guy12
The following players were active earlier in the dynasty but idled before the end:
Izzoboetam, Kevan, ryagami
