627  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS 1: IDS Save our Utilites Act (Final Vote) on: September 03, 2014, 12:46:55 am
I hereby bring this bill to a final vote. Legislators have 48 hours or until all have voted to vote Aye, Nay or to Abstain.


Quote from: Final Text
IDS Save our Utilities Act

1. All power and fuel companies within the IDS (defined as any for-profit entity deriving 75 percent or more of its profit from the production, maintenance, or distribution of any form of energy, but excluding gas stations and the extraction of natural resources) will be immediately nationalized by the Imperial Government upon any attempt (constituting the entry into force of legislation or an executive order) by the federal government to bring those corporations into public ownership. During their time under regional control, the operations of these companies will not be affected in any way. These companies will be returned to their former owners one minute after the federal attempt goes into effect.

I was excited to start as Lysa Arryn; the Vale was right next to the action, known for its high quality soldiers and completely free to choose whichever alliance it wants. Very early on I made a deal with Stannis to marry Shireen and Robert and to make Lysa Lady Paramount of the Riverlands, which would work if the other two candidates, Edmure and Catelyn were rebels. He was planning to murder Renly at the first possible opportunity, so it all looked like it would work out great. After that I waited around, building my strength and pretended I was open to an alliance with Robb or Tywin. After Daenarys landed and Oakvale starting becoming inactive I started trying to make deals with any party I could think of in his name to try to keep the cause alive. It was right about then when I'd started my march south that Stannis died and I realized I had no backup plan.

The Lannisters were down to half an army and X!Tywin was less trustworthy than book!Littlefinger, so I couldn't side with them, the Starks had nothing to offer except a (politically worthless) marriage to Sansa and Renly never communicated with me whatsoever.
So at that point I joined up with Daenarys and was minutes from sending in an order to crush Tywin when Robb sent me a secret plan to sneak attack the Daenarys-affiliated Tyrells. It was waaay too good to pass up what looked like an easy betrayal that would end the war in one battle, so I doomed myself by attacking the Starks. Until that moment I intended to completely ignore them the whole game through and let some other army of whoever I was working with deal with them if I couldn't reconcile both sides; if I had resisted that one temptation I think I might have made it through the game keeping one of the craziest people in Westeros in power.

Mance was very unsatisfying. Once I chose him and looked at my options it basically came down to a) face the united armies of Westeros and be slaughtered or b) make peace with Robb and keep it. I kept the peace, but other than a little bit of drama with Bolton there was never much to do.

It was a lot of fun. Thanks for all the effort you put into it Lumine, it turned out great. As for anything else, it'd be premature for anyone to start another game right now when we're so close to WoIaF coming out. Maybe we'll find something there that'll make an even batter game.

I second wanting to hear more about what you thought about how everyone did. I also want to find out what Varys was doing the whole time that you kept raving about in the turn summaries Tongue

That wasn't really necessary for the law; the reason I included it was that I saw a study showing lower recidivism rates for sentences including both fines and incarceration, as opposed to either one alone.
631  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS 1: IDS Save our Utilites Act (Amending) on: September 01, 2014, 02:59:37 am
No, sorry. I'm in favor of moving almost immediately with Sjoyce's revision. Its nowhere near as pressing anymore, but there's always a risk that Labor will come back and try again.
632  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Voting Booth / Re: IDS Voting Booth: War Powers Amendment on: August 30, 2014, 12:14:17 pm
Nay

Not quite the start I was hoping for.

I guess I'll send Gerrick Kingsblood as an observer.

We don't know, it was all very sudden. He certainly didn't warn anyone about it.
641  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Voting Booth / IDS August 2014 Special Election on: August 25, 2014, 12:00:14 am
Voting shall begin immediately for the office of Emperor of the Imperial Dominion of the South.

Voting will last 72 hours, ending on Thursday, August 28th at 1:00:00 EST

A voter's ballot is valid only if the voter:
(1) is registered with the Atlasian Registrar General as a voter of a Southern state during the entire time that the poll is open;
(2) makes only a single post in that election thread;
(3) does not edit or delete the post more than one hour after the post has been made; and
(4) clearly identifies the contest in which a vote is intended to be applied, except when there is only one contest on the ballot.

Emperor:
Write-in: []___________
Write-in: []___________

I guess I need to dust off this old thread. If we need to continue discussion of the current situation the place to do so is here.
644  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Flo for Governor on: August 24, 2014, 10:02:38 pm
I've been PMing people about it. Because of a poorly written statute

Quote
9. Should the Emperor vacate his office for any reason, a special election shall be immediately held to fill the seat for the remainder of the term. The Imperial Speaker shall assume the duties of Emperor on a provisional basis until a citizen of the region is elected to hold the position for the remainder of the term.

I've decided to deal with the "immediately" by giving notice of an election now and holding it a short time after all in the region have been informed.
645  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: Office of IDS Emperor Scott on: August 24, 2014, 09:13:00 pm
I know. We're dealing with poorly written statutes here; I'm working on it.
646  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS 2: IDS Fine Act (Debating) on: August 24, 2014, 08:43:33 pm
Less the state and more the local authorities. Most of the money goes to the cities and counties in which they were collected; the worry is that this will encourage overzealous policing to pad city budgets.

I think we're all asking that right now.

I do believe that this is the end; I don't intend to break the peace and it looks like the Greyjoys won't either. All the potential plotters are now either dead or are on-board with the Blackfyres. The horn is secure, meaning dragons can't be used against the new regime. I guess the only other potential conflict starters are the Others, which would have to face dragons and a united Westeros or the Free Cities which couldn't do anything for a whole number of reasons.

If this IS the end I hope everyone will reveal what they were doing and which plots were theirs, I've really been looking forward to finding out.
649  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Voting Booth / Re: IDS Voting Booth: The Bicameral Birthing Amendment of 2014 on: August 22, 2014, 12:17:25 am
Aye
650  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS 1: IDS Save our Utilites Act (Amending) on: August 21, 2014, 02:08:22 am
I, for one, am happy to adopt Sjoyce's amendment wholesale and leave the other questions for future bills. Any objections?
