The following proposal has been agreed unanimously (explicitly by baf,
Jota, and jwalrus, implicitly by Roger and me), and will come into
effect removing Rule 126 and adding Rules 136 and 137 in one hour from
the timestamp of this message.

  That Most High, Mighty, and Puissant Prince [Psmith]

  Remove Rule 126.

  Each player shall have a tally associated with him or her, called
  their Puissance. This tally will initially be 1 for every player,
  and its value is considered part of the state of the game.

  Although multiple players may have the same Dark Gift, no player may
  have the same Dark Gift more than once, or more different Dark Gifts
  than the value of their Puissance tally. Any Dark Gifts a player may
  acquire beyond this limit are immediately lost; and if their
  Puissance tally decreases to below the number they currently have,
  they immediately lose enough Dark Gifts to bring them back into
  compliance with this rule, chosen upwards from the end of the list
  in Standard Order of the Dark Gifts that player possessed. A player
  may also voluntarily abandon any Dark Gift they currently possess as
  an action.
