Such abstraction from the necessary vagary. I'm interested in seeing the test in play. That sounds hard. But then Neo seemed to pass with flying colors. This sounds really fun. 

I assume, when the planets convene, the player in question is excluded from the conversation. 

Also, how planetist is it that you "exclude" Pluto from the voting. If you're excluding one dwarf planet, you're excluding them all. Inexcusable.  I demand you apologize: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_possible_dwarf_planets.

Hey, thanks for the lovely comment! I hadn't bothered to read the comments until just now, and I'm very glad I did. 

In my playtests, someone playing a planet was allowed to have opinions on their own alternate human character. But given that they never tested that character personally,  they were rarely the loudest outspoken advocate either in favor or against that character, but there's no reason they couldn't be. So there's technically no rule against you using dual character status to like try to game the system and only support your alternate human character, but if you do, you're kind of missing the point of the game, haha.

And yeah, dwarf planets are implied to be excluded, at least from voting, if not from being chosen as a character. As far as I'm concerned, they all do exist in this setting. I don't necessarily want to make too strong of a ruling here, as I intend the rules of this game to be open to interpretation. I want there to be some level of intentional ambiguity and "death of the author."  But I can tell you how I play it. As long as there are at least three or four of the core eight planets represented, someone can play a dwarf planet. I mentioned Pluto and not additional dwarf planets cause that word count is a real SOB.  And given that Pluto was formerly considered a planet, I thought the idea of a member of this high cosmic council being demoted for some reason was a cool character prompt, but again, the specifics of this demotion are open to interpretation. If you wanna play Ceres or Orcus or whatever, go nuts! But you don't get to vote, and the core eight planets probably, as a general rule, think of you as lesser.

Thank you so much for your interest in my weird little micro game!
