S-K.—Chronos

Adminned at 15 Feb 2007 10:48:52 UTC

“Do you believe the voice?” - Dr. Werber (from The X-files, Season 1, Episode 3)

Add subrule 2.3.2 “Cults” to rule 2.3 “Gossip””

If an Actor has “Cult-worshipping” as one gossip story and also has another gossip story active simultaneously, then e may choose to have the gossip story “Cult-worshipping” changed to one of the following, based what the second gossip story is:

- “Cult-worshipping” and “Pretentious”: Member of “Fiat Ego” cult
- “Cult-worshipping” and “Alcoholic”: Member of “Friends of Jack Daniels” cult
- “Cult-worshipping” and “Alcoholic”: Member of “Intimate Friends of Jack Daniels” cult
- “Cult-worshipping” and “Philandering”: Member of “Order of Don Juan” cult
- “Cult-worshipping” and “Sex-addicted”: Member of “Sexholic Army” cult
- “Cult-worshipping” and “Right-wing”: Member of the “Opus Reagani” cult
- “Cult-worshipping” and “Left-wing”: Member of the “New Fair Square Deal of the Great Society” cult
- “Cult-worshipping” and “Kleptomaniac”: Member of the “Hands of Bender” cult
- “Cult-worshipping” and “Paternity-suited”: Member of the “Children of Someone Else” cult
- “Cult-worshipping” and “Divorced”: Member of the “Self Liberation Army” cult
- “Cult-worshipping” and “Eccentric”: Member of the “Flying Spaghetti Monster” cult

Each of these cults shall be abbreviated in the GNDT as follows:
- Member of “Fiat Ego” cult = FE
- Member of “Friends of Jack Daniels” cult = FoJD
- Member of “Intimate Friends of Jack Daniels” cult = IFoJD
- Member of “Order of Don Juan” cult = OoDj
- Member of “Sexholic Army” cult = SA
- Member of the “Opus Reagani” cult = OR
- Member of the “New Square Fair Deal of the Great Society” cult = NSFDotGS
- Member of the “Hands of Bender” cult = HoB
- Member of the “Children of Someone Else” cult = CoSE
- Member of the “Self Liberation Army” cult = SLA
- Member of the “Flying Spaghetti Monster” cult = FSM

If this proposal passes, then I will follow it up with another proposal, which will make the cult of an Actor have an affect on the fame of the Actor. However, I want to lay the groundwork for such a proposal first.

Please Note: I do not intend to make the cults a central part of the game, but rather an optional part that will serve to enhance it, rather than dominate it.

well, since this seems to be garnishing no support, and I forgot to fix the “no longer cult-worshipper” problem,  against
