Proposal: Be my Guest

timed out, final vote 8-2 (jockawo voted 2x)—Yoda

Adminned at 21 Nov 2008 18:27:45 UTC

Only gonna propose the first part of this previously failed proposal, because I think it was the second part which caused problems.

Add a sub-rule “Hosts” to rule “Locations”:

If the text or name of a location contains the name of a Character, that Character is the Host of that Location (a Location may have multiple hosts if all of their names appear in that Location). The Narrator is always the Host of Nowhere. If a Character’s current location is one for which they are Host, that Character is said to be Home. Characters who are not at Home, are said to be Guests of the Location they are currently in.

Add the words “The name on the rusted signboard atop the place reads: Arthexis’ Fine Antique Shope” to the location named “Arth’s Antique Shop”.

imperial New players can abuse this rule quite heavily.

“My name is Main Street.”

Are Arthexis and arthexis the same name?

for I don’t think we need to worry about new players abusing this.

This just wouldn’t make sense for locations like the hospital or the alley…

Yoda:

Then we just make sure no location like that mentions anyone’s name.

I remember than in a previous dynasty we had already agreed that capitalization did not matter. After all, this is not computer programming, but law. Its the meaning of the words that matter, not the spelling.
