Imperial Nomic 28 2.0 Initial Rules

1. Minimal Office Holders

The Game of Imperial Nomic shall always include at least two not necessarily distinct players who are office-holders: The Imperial Emperor / Empress (TIE) and The Humble Scribe (THS). The initial holder of the post of TIE and THS is Joel "Joe Java" Ricker.

2. How to Play

A Proposal is submitted by sending it by electronic mail or the World Wide Web to THS. A person becomes a player at the submission of their first Proposal or Point of Order.

3. Rights & Responsibilities

  1. TIE will judge each proposal submitted and accept, reject or ignore it. To ignore a proposal, the condition by which it is ignored must be explicit elsewhere in the ruleset.
  2. TIE may, at any time, modify or remove any existing rule or enact new rules, by the issuing of a Proclamation. In addition, e may, at any time, issue a Directive calling for proposals in a certain area.
  3. THS may rewrite a proposal to clarify its meaning, as long as the rewriting does not alter the meaning.
  4. THS must publish, via the World Wide Web, the current set of rules, list of proposals, and scores of all players.

4. Automatic Queue System

If a player has submitted one undecided proposal and then submits a new proposal, the new proposal will replace the oldest of that player's undecided proposals.

5. Appeals Mechanism

Any player may, at any time, submit a Point of Order to raise any issue relevant to the game.

6. Application of Rules

  1. Each submission will be numbered and a new rule will apply to all submissions numbered greater than or equal to its own proposal unless it specifies otherwise.
  2. When several rules apply at the same time, precedence as specified explicitly by the rules is applied first. Where there is no explicit or conflicting explicit precedence, the rules are applied from lowest to highest as far as possible without conflict

7. Winning the Game

The game ends when one player achieves the title of The Exalted Winner (TEW).
