Proposal: Stirring the Pot Once More

Create a new Dynastic Rule titled â€œStirring the Potâ€ with the following text:
When a Contestantâ€™s Location is set to â€˜Kitchenâ€™, as a weekly action, that Contestant may â€˜Make Soupâ€™. The Contestant makes a post to the blog entitled â€˜Yâ€™s Soupâ€™ where Y is the name of that Contestant. The post must detail the color, obtained by rolling â€˜COLORâ€™ in the GNDT, of the soup that the Contestant has created. Each Contestant may make a comment to the post once with a For icon symbolising that they have â€˜Stirred the Potâ€™. Upon making the comment, that Contestant rolls COLOR in the GNDT. If the Contestant rolls the same color as the soup, that Contestant increases their Luck by 1, and rolls COLOR in the GNDT once more. If the color rolled is once again the same as the color of the soup, the Contestant has â€œHit the Jack Potâ€ and increases their Fame by 2 and their Luck by an additional 1. When the number of For votes reaches Quorum, if they have not already done so, the Contestant who Made Soup may increase their Fame by 1.
Create a new subrule to Stirring the Pot titled â€œSoupâ€™s Gone Flatâ€ with the following text:
Whenever a Contestant has â€œStirred the Potâ€ by commenting on a post more than 72 hours after it was created, that Contestant treats their corresponding COLOR roll as if it were â€œBurnt Siena.â€
Includes the suggested fixes. Note that the GNDT automatically changes COLOR to COLOUR and rolls it, so that part is fine.
The concept is that Contestants are stirring in new ingredients to try to improve the Soup. If they roll the same color, they have done something to increase the Soupâ€™s quality; if they roll a different color, theyâ€™ve obviously messed something up, so they derive no benefit.
