    On this at least the Bunka and Kagaku agree.

    I was not making threats, merely doing maths.

    And if anything we should start to disband our military, so we can get more GPT, so our science isn't penalised further when we hit 0

    I would like to put forth a vote.

    Define "local non-noble Kagaku in Japan" as:
    Any Daimyo who proposes human sacrifice
    Any Japanese citizen who condemns the killing of an American who has not converted to Japanese ways
    Any Japanese citizen who defies the Kami by living over 100 years
    Any Japanese citizen who has a mental disease such as "crazy old man syndrome"
    No definition

    Fortunately the term Kagaku already is defined as a member of the Kagaku clan, thus the definitions of non-noble as defined in your voting proposal Rudragun apply only to members in the Kagaku Clan.

    I hate to contradict you, Daimyo Jehoshua, but the vote is clearly worded as "local non-noble Kagaku in Japan." That means that this whole phrase will be defined, not just certain words.
    Even if what you have said was the case, the citizens of the Kagaku clan have nothing to fear. Not a single one is guilty of any of the possible definitions.

    In the phrase above, "Kagaku" is the Noun, and thus the subject of the sentence. "Local" and "Non-noble" are adjectives, describing the Noun. And 'In Japan' defines the whole with a location. So, in the vote which you proposed, you have in fact answered your own question. By defining the phrase, you are defining the noun (Kagaku) as the verbs (Local, Non-noble) in the location (Japan)

    Indeed Pouakai is correct. This is just another example of why the Kagaku have shamed themselves.

    However for their peace of mind I have simplified it to simply" ignoble Kagaku".

    Two of your characters survived your absence and are alive and well in Kyoto and Osaka. I will put a third back on the waiting list.

    I suppose the Oni prefers the old-fashioned method of removing political rivals, I suppose the methods of 120 years ago are still quite valid.
