The leadership of the Triad coalition has made numerous statements that their term as Prime Faction would end after the 5th turnset. In metagame terms this ought to mean that an election cycle has started. In roleplay terms, it should mean that the despot has abdicated and we have entered a period of anarchy. Accordingly, all factions or coalitions who wish to be eligible for election as Prime Faction must now state their intent. Please post: Faction or coalition name Link to faction/coalition ruleset or election platform Individuals designated for at least the top 3 leadership positions according to the ruleset or platform This data may change until the start of the election poll, at which point it must be hardened until after the election concludes. Note, this does not preclude continued campaigning which promises to make changes after the elections, but for fairness during the election itself the baseline must remain constant. This process is based in part on a ruleset change which has not yet been ratified. In the interest of cooperation and good sportsmanship, I respectfully request that a gentlepersons agreement be made to comply with the planned new addition to the core rules. Let the campaign begin! The time period for announcing intent to participate in the election is tentatively set at 3 days from the time of this post, since we do not want to take so long that the game grinds to a halt.
