Should "Divine Right" contrast with "Divine Wrong", "Divine Left", or "Divine Duty", or should it compare to "Divine Conservative" or "The Divine Stuff", or just exactly what, pray tell? The term seems to be confused. (I was thinking of asking Encyclopedia Britannica for a job, once, long ago, but I didn't.)(I'm so bright my parents called me "son", but I'm still curious about the vast prevalence of something apparently "resuming" in the job market. Back in the seveties and eighties, during my brief but nevertheless quite profitable albeit exhorbitantly expensive "career", so to speak, people just STARTED jobs. This business of, apparently, "RESUMING" a "career" [we suppose...], rather than just starting another job seems to be somewhat remenicent of coddling, for some less-than-odd reason. What might concern linguists most of all is the rather strange, somewhat obscure yet popular practice of hijacking this verb for common use as a noun! Shouldn't someone, like, say, Dianne Sawyer, or Oprah Winfrey, get to the bottom of this, find out who is responsible, and do something about it? [The parentheses haven't been properly closed, yet. Did YOU notice this? Come on folks, let's wake up put there!] Chau! Emil Litila [1] PS Sometimes, to think outside the box, but still close enough to it that someone can still actually, or literally, or even figuratively see you, the parentheses should remain just as open as the question of when they will or shall finally close.

Indeed. How clever. Yet boring at the same time. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:55, 18 March 2008 (UTC)

Game History[edit]

I added a paragraph on development history and influences, and changed the designer credits to include both Glenn Rahman and his brother Kenneth. Both changes were based on Glenn's article "Divine Right 25th Anniversary Edition Design Notes". The co-designer credits are also consistent with the entry on BoardGameGeek.
