Re: Recommend Your Favorite Podcasts

I find it hard to concentrate on podcasts but The Adventure Zone is a great ongoing D&D podcast. Their first campaign ran for just under four years of bi-weekly updates and since then they've been bouncing around with one-shots and shorter campaigns. The Awesome Comics Podcast is another one I r...

Re: Political Party Game

The power is mine *evil cackle*.

My first rule is to overthrow the bourgeoisie and seize the means of production...

I jest.

I propose: At midnight UTC each day, each political party receives $100 plus $10 for each member of that party at midnight UTC.

Re: Political Party Game

Hmmm, if people vote the Blue Party into power then our first proposal will be that "At midnight UTC each day, each political party receives $100 plus $10 for each member of that party at midnight UTC." I don't know what we'd do with the money yet... but it seems likely we will need an inc...

Re: Political Party Game

I motion that I become the appointed candidate.

I second my nomination.

I vote for myself as the candidate.

I quickly check for conflicting votes... and announce that with 100% support, I am now the Blue Party candidate.

Re: Political Party Game

I'll join the Blue Party.

As the only member of the Blue Party... if I nominate myself as candidate do I automatically become candidate? Or do I have to ratify it by seconding my nomination of myself then voting to elect myself as candidate?

Evolution - it's a harsh world
