If the Proposal titled “So what’s your scandal” failed, this Proposal does nothing.
Change all examples of the phrase “Gossip Stories” to “Media Stories”. Add the following to the end of the first paragraph of the rule entitled “Gossip”:
Every day that the Actor spends with an active story in one of eir Media Story columns, they must add one to their Column Inches statistic, which is tracked in the GNDT. If both Media Stories are occupied, e must add 3 to eir Column Inches stat.
There are two types of Media Stories: Gossip Stories and Vanity Projects.
Add to the end of the same rule:
The available Vanity Projects are:
*Tours with childhood band
*Adopts African child
*Writes, funds, directs and stars in low-budget indie
*Attacks government policy in awards speech
*Launches underwear line
*Attends festival in home town
*Becomes UN Goodwill Ambassador
*Moves to Britain
*Has a cameo in a popular sitcom
*Competes in a charity sporting event
*Invests in off-the-wall invention
Add a new column to the GNDT, entitled “Column Inches”.
Adds a positive kind of gossip story and a way of tracking media interest.
