We had a question about this edict. The top level of it says "don't take the most" but the criteria for payout says "pay the ruler 2 if you take the majority in a family" or wording like that. Similarly, a sinner must take the majority of all families.
Should this have said plurality? This is the only edict where the rules for payout were different from violating the edict. For example, if you took 4 of a family and the other 3 players took 3, 2, and 0 of that family you took the most but you wouldn't have to pay if it's majority.
Didn’t resonate with us as an error when we played, but yeah it’s not the right wording.
Take it to mean ‘the most’. It would be a rare payout if it really meant ‘majority’ in the true sense.
