Thus spake "Jonathan Van Matre": > Ye gods, the cause of judicial reform has proved a heavy burden to bear. A very difficult problem, to be sure. I recall devoting considerable effort to it in Berserker and A Nomic, to no effect. (We had a win or two awarded because of flaws in the judicial system, IIRC.) I'm now convinced that you can't legislate a "fair" judiciary, you just have to rely on the goodwill of players to constitute one. My $0.02, and I'm not a player anyhow, so... :)
One underlying problem is that the Judges are also Players and are thus not impartial.
