Proposal: Proposal: The Corrected Solemn Mysteries of the Ancient Order of the Deep

Fails 3-11. Timed out.—alethiophile

Add a dynastic rule, entitled “Trusty Shellbacks”, as follows:

Adventurers are either Shellbacks or Pollywogs but not both.  The initial state of all Adventurers is Pollywog.  The state of all Adventurers as Shellbacks or Pollywogs shall be tracked as either “S” or “P”, as appropriate, in the GNDT.  Subject to the following sentence, if a Pollywog engages in movement that causes him to cross the Equator in the Universe, within 24 hours of doing so that Adventurer may make a post to the blog indicating that he has done so, whereupon that Adventurer (1) becomes a Shellback, and (2) increases the number of his Wishes by one.  If sea vehicles or sea type vehicles exist or are defined in the ruleset then an Adventurer may only increase the number of his Wishes by operation of the previous sentence if his crossing of the Equator occurs by means of such a vehicle.

Can you become a Pollywog again? Not explicit enough for me. imperial

This doesn’t provide a mechanism to become one, so no. It’s just as explicit as our inability to change our Power at will.

No, you only get to do this once.

against I don’t like passing a proposal for a one-time mechanic.

It’s a bit of a waste of a GNDT field, as it stands, but it could easily be expanded into a handful of one-time mechanics for getting a free wish.

against We still have the lamp to do stuff with. I would rather not see extra things added until we “use” older ideas first.
