Proposal: A Puff of Smoke

Passed 13-2-6. Quorum for.—alethiophile

Adminned at 17 Dec 2009 17:03:08 UTC

In Rule 2.2 (Wish Fulfillment), replace “reduce the Wishes of the adventurer who made the wish by 1 and perform the results of the wish” with:-

reduce the Wishes of the adventurer who made the wish by 1, perform the results of the wish and announce any resultant gamestate or ruleset changes in a blog entry

I hadn’t noticed that two wishes had gone through already. If they’re having visible effects on the gamestate and ruleset, it’d be good to be told that by the Djinn, rather than have to dig through and check ourselves.

There are no allowed ruleset changes, and most gamestate changes are noted in the GNDT. Also, no granted wishes have yet had an effect of gamestate.  imperial

That’s fine, it’d just be good to know for sure that we’d be alerted if the ruleset ever did change, or if a big GNDT update was buried in a slew of overnight edits.

against There’s a part of me that agrees with Kevan, and a part of me that enjoys the tension of not knowing what is happening behind my back. Today, the second part is winning.

It’s still a nomic. I want to know. If there needs to be secrecy add it to the wish.

Time to hurry up and make your wishes now before the results get publicized. ;)

imperial Because gamestate changes are going to be noticeable in the GNDT anyway, this doesn’t do anything but help the lazy. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or not.

One other thing it does is help spur creativity. People might be inspired by other wishes that they see made and come up with interesting twists/variations/obstructions on a theme.
