Proposal: Putting the Host in his place

Fails (timed out) with 11 :against: and only 1 :for:

Adminned at 25 May 2009 19:21:19 UTC

Set the Host’s Status, Vote Support, Fame and, if either exists at the time of this proposal, Luck and Looks to blank.

Add a new room to the list of rooms in rule 2.3 called the “Control Room.”

Add the following language to the end of Rule 2.3:

The Host, and only the Host, may occupy the Control Room

If the proposal “The Host has entered the Bunker” fails, set the Host’s location to the Control Room

The last sentence attempts to implement what seems to be an emerging understanding Rule 2.6 “Hands Off,” namely that the Host lacks any of the attributes created by the ruleset, except, possibly location.  This proposal then essentially serves as a referendum on whether that is the general interpretation.

for , although I’d prefer a clause that keeps the Control Room from being filmed.

against Seems unhelpful to have to specify “except the control room” every time we add a mechanic that refers to rooms.

@Bucky: Filming myself would be hilarious, and wouldn’t unbalance the game I don’t think; but I agree with Kevan, in that this may cause problems with other rules.

I’ve removed ais from the GNDT; this seemed the easiest way to avoid confusion, although I suppose you could add a “Host” value to each statistic, if you prefer.

Qwaz, or someone else, please put me back; now I’m not in the GNDT, it won’t let me log in. So how can I do filming?

Ooh, that’s awful! I didn’t realize that would happen. I’ve put you back, and added blank fields for the Host only.
