Proposal: It’s alive!  It’s alive!

Failed, six to two. Josh

Adminned at 17 Nov 2009 20:31:28 UTC

Add the following to “Basic Spells”:
Spell: Animation
Activation sequence: “PUPA”
Effect.  Creates a non-Apprentice entity, called a “Golem” which shall be added to the GNDT order in such ordered position as the Apprentice who casts it (such Apprentice, the “Master”) directs.  The Golem shall be named %(G) (with “%” being substituted with the name, or an abbreviation of the name, of its Master.  A Golem has the Ward that its Master had at the moment of the Golem’s creation, and has an initial Workbench consisting of a single “X” rune.  Any action or effect that would result in changing a Golem’s Workbench instead destroys the Golem.

Golems can serve as additional protection against Spells that affect other Apprentices based on their position in the GNDT.  If the Master does not admin his own creation of a Golem, he should post a story post that describes where the Golem should be placed in the GNDT.

It’s impossible for a non-admin to cast this spell.

Nonsense—I’m not an admin myself.  Per my comment at the bottom, if you cast the spell but aren’t an admin, then post a story post that directs the admin what to do: but casting the spell in and of itself “creates” the Golem so that it’s deemed to exist as of the moment that the spell is cast, whether or not it actually shows up in the GNDT.

against .  A “U” as the second Rune in the spell makes it nearly impossible to cast.

Also, GNDT order is determined by date of addition to the GNDT; it can’t be chosen.

DC: Yeah.  Nothing strange about that, though.  Bucky notes a consequence of this proposal, and votes against.  Ienpw, however, approves of that consequence and votes for.

I was merely pointing it out in case he had clicked the wrong voting icon.
