Adams' Family Dynasty

Recommended Posts

The basis for this will be to see how long I can keep the Adams family in power, and if their is a lack of an Adams family member to run I will find another suitable dynasty. 

The rules are as follows: 

3. Start in 1800. 
2. After every election, there is a dice roll of 1-20 for how successful the presidency was. This determines how shifted the starting position is for the next election. If there is a roll of 10, there is no bias and the election is normal. A roll of 20 means a 100% shift towards the Adams family in the editor. A roll of 1 means a 100% shift towards the party of opposition. 
3. For each attempt at a term past the second, a 10% shift will be given to the opposition.
4. If the Adams family is the incumbent during historically important events, that will affect beginning polling. During the era of good feelings, it's likely they'll have a hefty advantage. During the panic of 1837, they will be at a disadvantage.

I did this back then, then I found out I wasn't related, so I couldn't provide a straight family tree.
