A recent proposal had a statement which basically stated “Bucky must move larsatomica from hell”. Does the word ‘must’ also confer the power to do whatever is required? It is not clarified in our glossary.
I was reading ‘must’ in this case as ‘is required to, by all means at eir disposal’. If a statement said ‘smith must give 50 Distimmed Dosh to Josh’ I would think that I would have to own the Dosh I am required to give. But there are other examples which obviously confer the power, such as ‘smith must reduce eir stigma by 3’. We don’t have the power to lose stigma, but the statement seems to allow it.
So ‘must’ could work either way, but I’m wondering if there is a general rule of thumb I’m missing.
UPDATE: Sorry, I used different terms than the actual example I’m paraphrasing. “If Lars Atomica is in Hell and gives Bucky 10 Dosh, Bucky will move em to the Lobby.” I think the general concept is the same—does ‘will’ confer the power?
SECOND UPDATE: It may be that there was an existing mechanic to move lars from hell, but I didn’t see it, so I’m not sure how this statement was actually interpreted. In any case, this question is still unresolved for me in general.
