    Was it possibly the vote in case of a tie?

    I really want to know who the voters were.

    (1) Announce winner, congratulate, etc.

    Done

    (2) Introduce the "mysterious panel"

    We'll save this for later.

    (3) Reveal the "Secrets of the Pharaohs"

    "Secrets of the Pharaohs:

    As your guide to Egypt, it is my privilege to bestow upon you the "Secrets of the Pharaohs". As these are guarded secrets passed down only to new Pharaohs, and thus may NOT be divulged to those who have never ruled Egypt.

    Your voting ability is quite interesting. After the cleansing ritual, you will have the OPTION of whether or not to vote. Thus, we have 3 possibilities:

    (1) You vote for the next Pharaoh. If you choose to vote, then you will be ineligible for the final vote for the Eternal Pharaoh of Egypt (the winner of the game)

    (2) You decline to vote for the next Pharaoh. If you choose not to vote, then you will be part of the final Pharaonic Council that will vote for the Eternal Pharaoh of Egypt.

    (3) You win the cleansing ritual challenge. As you are not cursed, you will not be cleansed. However, you will be able to vote for the next Pharaoh *AND* be on the Pharaonic Council. Note: You may choose to decline to vote for the next Pharaoh in this case if you wish, and it will not affect your position on the Pharaonic Council.

    Your voting power does not end there. Ties are broken by the power of the Pharaohs.

    Tie Breaker #1: If the current Pharaoh votes for the next Pharaoh and there is a tie, the current Pharaoh selects the next Pharaoh among those who are tied.

    Tie Breaker #2: If the current Pharaoh does not vote, then all dead Pharaohs have a chance to break the tie. The first dead Pharaoh to PM me with a vote will break the tie.

    This is important, so I will repeat it: You may NOT reveal this information to any of the commoners. You may, however, in the future, discuss this information with the other Pharaohs. Hence The "Secrets of the Pharaohs"


    If you have any questions, feel free to ask me them via PM. If you understand your new powers and responsibilities, you may choose three commoners to curse now, either in the thread or via PM to me."

    Yes, I did keep your genders listed with your names. Notice I only messed up twice? (Sorry again, haejin)



    (5) Discuss the game as a whole, and what could be improved for a Ruling Egypt 2.

    The whole "vote now or later" thing with the Pharaohs didn't go as well as I had planned. In fact, only DFleming voted when he did as opposed to waiting to vote on the Pharaonic Council aka "mysterious panel". If I do a Ruling Egypt 2, this may need tweaking (ponders his possibilities).

    Some of the challenges went well. However, I've found that the ones that were timed from the time opened until the time a correct answer is sent doesn't quite work. Those would have to be adjusted and/or removed.

    More to come!

    Yeah... I don't like those either they're popular with the crowd, though...

    3 things:

    1. Everyone voted for Lotus? Ouch. Just... ouch

    2. Looks like Torp did vote for AIW... which was exactly what we thought

    3. Wow, only six votes? Not too bad, since I was up 5 times

    Then it came down to the second tiebreaker... it was a close round, indeed.

    And then again, DFleming did have interests to protect that were still IN the game, so his lying wasn't completely unsubstantiated.

    Ya, it's unfortunate that some people cheat.......

    And BTW thanks Erin for saving my butt during the tie breaker.

    I really liked the three options behind these.

    And thanks to all those "dead" who voted for me.

    Well, I was thankfully informed of the board's workaround to that type of challenge, so I was able to adjust the rest of the challenges to avoid that happening again.

    I really expected more people to take the "vote now" option, knowing that it also meant they were the tie-breaking vote. Torpedo not voting in the final round was particularly surprising, but it was his prerogative.

    I think Torpedo just wanted my vote to stand. He didn't really have anything againest Silver or Bored nor did he favor either of them greatly. (Or at least I think that's the case)
