Polygamy!

It's the season of love and what better way to do that by implementing Aetolia's most supported idea-- Polygamy! Here's how it works.

We're keeping the bound-in-blood style marriage exclusive to monogamy, so first, you must be married under the Rites of Unity to a second person already.

UNITY INVITE <person>
One of you can then invite another person to join your Unity. This person must be considered 'single' i.e. not engaged or in an existing marriage of any kind.

UNITY AGREE <person>
Everybody in the current Unity (including the person who did the invite) must then agree to having this new person join the Unity. It costs 50k to use the UNITY AGREE command. The invitee will also need to agree, but there is no gold cost for them.
NOTE: this is not-refundable - make sure everybody in your Union is on board with this before you throw away your 50k.

UNITY RESCIND <person>
Withdraws the invitation for someone to join the existing Union. Can also be done by the person who was invited. Remember that the 50k for UNITY AGREE isn't refundable, so people will lose out on gold if they've already agreed and you do this!

OFFICIALISE <person>
With all parties agreed, the new polygamous Unity needs to be officialised by someone that has the power to marry others. They will need to use OFFICIALISE on the person trying to join the established Unity.

SUNDER UNITY
In a polygamous marriage, this normal divorce command works slightly differently. It still costs 100,000 but instead of dissolving the Unity, it will remove only you from it, leaving the rest of the people in the Unity intact.

And that's it, you're now in a polygamous marriage.

    Are there any coded limits on the number of people in one, or is strictly based on the logistics of everyone agreeing and having enough gold?

    How does the honors line appear? If it doesn't stop after one line or so, I imagine it could turn into a match similar to who has the most fame lines. It's a perfectly understandable thing to want a Harem of wives, husbands, or spouses, but I don't want to slog through a list of spouses to find other information about your character.

    I've got a couple logistic questions:

    Can multiple people in the union circle be in the "engagement" state at once?
    - aka: If Zaila and Cayn are already married and they decide to quad-up with Haven and Nola, one of those pairs have to divorce first. So, lets say Haven and Nola split mechanically and they Cayn INVITEs Haven, Zaila Agrees. Before the union is OFFICALISEd, can Zaila then INVITE Nola to join: to which Cayn and Haven would then Agree?

    How does this interact with engagement timeframe requirements? Does each additional spouse have the same waiting period before they can join the new crew?
    - aka: If Zaila and Cayn are already married and they decide to welcome Haven into their union, do they all have to wait 2 IC seasons until pulling the trigger?

    Oh, I never thought of it like that. I just thought it'd be interesting to see someone like @Mazzion with a trailing harem...

    Yeah, gonna have to agree with Fezz here. IC relationships, especially if you go the polygamy route, are hard to manage in keeping people happy, and the whole point is to NOT make people feel like a notch on the belt. Adding spouses to Rankings would turn relationships into a commodity and more than likely create a lot of hurt feelings.

    There can only be one pending invitee at a time. There's currently no time restrictions, you can be invited, agreed upon and officialised in a matter of seconds if all the factors line up.

    I typed that out by hand, I'm pretty sure the actual message does have an oxford comma.

    Question, how will this work with custom marriage lines?
  • SaritaSarita Empress of Bahir'an The Pillars of the EarthMember Posts: 787 ✭✭✭✭✭
    So this is a slightly more RP oriented question. I know a few examples in game of rich/ruling type characters having concubines/harems (like Belladona, the prince in Xaanhal, etc), but aside from those set ups, are there any lesser known races/cultures floating around that would support some kind of larger group marriage? I vaguely remember seeing something about a Horkvali queen with multiple male partners, but I could be wrong about that, and nothing else is really coming to mind.

    Polygamy exists now, and yet my initial custom flair idea was to have a horde of screaming fangirls follow Fezzix around. It got rejected.

    That would have been really funny to see.
