Proposal: Haven’t Stopped Dancing Yet

[ The current “may add dance moves” wording seems to be broken, in that we can repeatedly and endlessly add N dance moves. ]

In the “Doing the Dance” rule, replace “There is a stat in the GNDT called ‘Dance Moves’, which is five by default except for the Top Banana who starts with ten dance moves. Each monkey may add dance moves to their section of the dance with a total complexity up to N, where in is N is their number of dance moves.” with:-

There is a stat in the GNDT called Agility; new Monkeys start with an Agility score of five. Each Monkey may use the Monkey Dynasty Gamestate Documents to specify their personal Dance Moves, whose total Complexity may not exceed their Agility score - a Monkey may change their own Dance Moves as a Daily Action. If the Complexity total of a Monkey’s Dance Moves ever exceeds their Agility score, any Monkey may remove that Monkey’s final Dance Move.

So this means you can’t put in tons of extra steps in your dance moves in case you gain more in the process of dancing, right?

I smell loophole. Couldn’t you add 100 dance moves, and then as long as no one stops you, remove them?

“Total Complexity may not exceed their Agility score” - the removal is more to deal with a Monkey’s Agility being lowered.

Ok.

Regardless, you have not replaced every place where ‘Dance Moves’ with ‘Agility’. This also seems to communicate more that the monkey writing the moves is the one preforming it… a notion as discussed before that I dislike.
