Re: Possible Restrictions on Reigns - FWD from the West List

You know, this is the exact system that was proposed for the potential
Northern Atlantian Principality. (It was definitely the most popular among
the various ideas presented, as I recall.)

But you know, in all of Atlantia's twenty-odd year history as an entity,
if the "reign X times, wait X reigns" rule had been in place for that
entire time, only *one* fighter in Atlantia would ever have been affected
(in his case, twice).
