> Rule 214:1 (Chris Huston)
Judgement: unknown
Style: unknown


The following is a temporary ammedment to the R.O's, since what it
attempts to accomplish cannot be done by an Overrule Proposal.  As such,
its voting period is 7 days. (Aron Wall)

Duration of Effects:
1) This ammendment shall be considered to have retroactively applied
from the time when Matthew Schuler first announced the theme for round 214.
2) This ammendment shall delete itself and leave the Regular Ordinances
just as they were at the end of round 212, as soon as three things have
ALL happened:
    a) Round 213 has officially ended.
    b) Round 214 has officially ended.
    c) This Ammendment has come into effect.

Main Thrust: That rounds 213 and rounds 214 be played simultaneously.

Fine print (hopefully just clarifying the obvious):
 Both rounds shall be deemed to have started when 214:1 & 213:1 were
posted by Chris Huston.  Rules of one round embedded in rules of the
other round count in both capacities.  R.O. 3 is suspended in the part
where it talks about beginning a round until the part beginning "All
members are eligible...".  Rules, Eligibility, Style, Overrule
Proposals, and End of Game are reckoned for each round separately.  The
Judge and Wizard of Round 214 is determined from Round 213, and hence
cannot be known with certainty until Round 213 ends.  Nevertheless, they
were the Judge/Wizard of Round 214 from the beginning.  When both round
213 and round 214 end, the Judge/Wizard of Round 215 will be determined
from round 214 in the usual manner.  Thus 5c should read "becomes Judge
for the next round" where it says "becomes Judge".  The Judge/Wizard of
Round 213 are the same individuals who they otherwise would be,
initially both Matthew Schuler.  Each judge is responsible for the
interpretation of what happens with respect to the round they Judge, and
who the Judge and Wizard are for the next round.

A Final Necessary Additional Rule: R.O. 8's Default provision shall not
apply to round 214. Thus players need not Judge all rules in Round 214
while unsure of their Judge status, unless they want to.
