Proposal: Roles

Self killed by Scaramouche. -Elias IX

Adminned at 05 Feb 2007 14:26:12 UTC

Add the following rule:

Once every 72 hours, but not more than once in a 24-hour period, an Actor may Audition.  This is done by rolling a d100.  On a roll of 1-5, the Actor cannot get a part and becomes slightly less popular; eir Role becomes one level less favorable.  On a 6-20, e does not get a part, and there is no effect.  On 21-30, the actor gets a part in a flop; eir Role becomes one level less favorable.  On a 31-65, ey star in an average movie; eir role does not change.  On a 66-95, ey star in a popular movie; eir Role becomes one level more favorable.  On a 96-100, ey star in a blockbuster; eir role becomes one level more favorable and ey can request another Role immediately, if ey wish.

If the Rule “The Order of Things” does not exist, this Proposal does nothing.
The two no-parts have the same effects now as two kinds of movie, but they can have different effects if money comes in or in other similar situations.
EDIT:Oh snap, kind-of-conflicting proposals.  Had already started writing when Chindogu posted.  They could be reconciled, but I’d have to rewrite this…

The idea is interesting, but it could use some rewording. It seems kinda confusing now. against

Also, as you have observed, proposal chronology will render this proposal obsolete.

against It’d be good to regulate how Actors get roles, but this needs work.

against It would be better for the Investor to control when opportunities to Audition exist.

It’s nice and all…but the randomness of it seems to be a little unrealistic. Maybe if it were tied to a stat, but for now its a big ole’  against for this one.

against When you make a dice-rolling mechanic like this, it should be keyed to a specific phrase to be included in the GNDT comments, so that it is always clear whether this rule has been invoked.

Meh.  against for quorum, then.

As soon as Filmography gets itself figured out, we can fail this.

Note: The ages of proposals on the sidebar are inaccurate; they round to the nearest hour.


At exactly 48 hours old, each proposal title turns red in the sidebar, so you can use that as a timer.
