Done! Also, this reminds me of something--it would a great courtesy if the King would PM their next opponent at the end of each match--I imagine that not all Challengers are on the ball.

Along the same idea… I'm thinking of tweaking the rules so that the King has the responsibility of creating the new thread, since he, unlike his opponent, will know that there is another game starting. Thoughts?

Would make sense, certainly. That way everyone doesn't have to check this thread constantly to see if they are the next in line.

I agree. Since I'm at the bottom, it would be a hassle for me to check every day, but I also likely wouldn't remember to check in say, a week, when it might be close to my turn.

I'd just like to say that I think it's awesome that our first monarch is a lady, and that she beat the defending CT champion to earn her crown. May her reign be a long one!

No offence Dreak.

I'm responsible for whipping people into making their moves. ;) I'm certain it will be a rare necessity.

I'd like to make a suggestion that the King gets choice in first or second.

@Grim: reasons?

@Everyone else: how do you feel about this idea?

Well, the king is supposed to have earned his place. Kinda like having earned the right to the title, so beating him should be more of a challenge (though I'm not saying that turn order drastically changes matches), but its more or less a fun kingship kind of thing that I was going for flavor wise. "I'm King, you're doing what I say, until you prove yourself worthy by defeating me."

I'm ok with it.  Fun flavor and could come back to bite the King if they choose poorly ;)

Agreed. It's a noticeable privilege but doesn't break the game at all.

Another suggestion:  Should we number the matches? IE. [KotH #3] and so on.  I think it'll be fun to see how long this goes on for :D  It could also be an easy way for people to chart the "succession lines" as it were :P

Great idea, I approve. Let's go in the hundred games!

You can call me Eldros. Feel free to send me untimed challenge at EldrosKandar for pseudo phantom draft. (List of test drafters)
----- 
The Soul Harvest draft deck is ready, you can see the deck I drafted. Try to guess which record I'll have in What's the pick? (Last update - 2014-03-28)
----- 
PTKTempo is the winner of the Asynchronous Initiative, the first asynchronous tournament, which was hosted by Evolution888 and yours truly! Stay tuned for more asynchronous action.

There was once a dream... Maybe it will be revived? See Alternative League (article by mnmike2002).

I think that'd be good… Do you think it might also be helpful to put a game number for a particular king? E.g. The current game would be labeled [KotH 2 SkyAnemone 2] or something like that, and then the next will be [KotH 3 SkyAnemone 3] or [KotH 3 Dreak 1]

I like this idea and also agree on the other suggestions I have missed.

The quickest, most reliable way to sort out account issues is to submit a ticket through the Stoneblade Zendesk system: https://stoneblade.zendesk.com/home

Stoneblade really does care about their Kickstarter backers. However, they are much quicker at responding to Zendesk requests than Forum requests. (Also, the Zendesk system tracks requests for them and ensures that no one's request falls through the cracks.)

These are all really interesting ideas.

First: it seems that no one, including me, has objections to the new responsibility (creating the thread) and power (choosing who goes first) of the King, so those are in. I'm going to rewrite the OP before the end of my current game with Dreak, so that will go into effect at the next game. If they end up being terrible we can always change them back.

Second: I think numbering the games, as well as within the individual reign of each monarch, is a marvelous idea. Additionally, I propose that each time former monarchs regain the throne, that they gain a Roman numeral next to their names, like actual kings do when they take on their titles. For example, if I were to lose my game to Dreak now, but win it again next time I come up, I would be SkyAnemone II, or perhaps SkyAnemone, the Second of Her Name.

Third: I was also thinking that the monarch, as part of being such, gets to make up a fancy title for themselves (or just use a generic one). So they could be King Grim, Keeper of the Tiers, or Emperor Racecar0, Overlord of Tournaments. So combining 2 and 3, I would note on the OP that it is currently the Second span in the reign of Her Imperial Highness SkyAnemone I, Destroyer of Champions, and the second span since Creation. ("Span" being the unit of time we keep for each game, if anyone has a better term I'd like to hear it.)

Finally, what do people think about keeping a sort of leaderboard of the longest reigning monarchs so far?

Feel free to suggest other fun things that the King gets to do.

This all sounds fun to me. I think Firelord Justin does have a nice ring to it.  (JDLaT211 does not have a good ring to it O.o)

Maybe Eras instead of spans?  I dunno. I also think a leaderboard sounds good, Your Imperial Highness.

Definitely agree with the leaderboards and name-picking.
As far as the numbring, I do think that's a good idea as well, and I think that Roman numerals would be better suited to the task, so that you could stick it in the thread title of a game without taking up too much space.
Finally, span sounds cool. Other options would be era (like JDL said), circuit (as in round), generation, moon, season, age, or perhaps even awakening.
Er, your imperial highness.

Okay, I've updated the OP to include the new rules and such.
