So you want to empower the legislature at the expense of the voters? I guess it could give more meaning to legislature elections. I'm open to this.

I think blaming the Kansas SoS here is wrong. If the KS election law explicitely says that you can only step down as candidate by notifying the SoS that you are unable to serve if elected, then Krobach is only acting according to the law. It's his job.

You should rather expect the Taylor campaign to be smart enough to know the election law and they should have put the "unable to serve" thing into his letter.

Except the letter Taylor wrote was written with the assistance of the Secretary of State's office, implying the Secretary of State knowingly deceived the Taylor campaign.

Its much more likely that they consulted some mid-level bureaucrat in the office who got it wrong. I very much doubt the secretary himself was involved in the decision in any way.

Well, I never thought that the potential perverse incentive problem was much of a problem anyway and am fine moving the bill as is to a final vote.

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.
92  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.
