Proposal: The Soul of Wit

13-5, cannot be enacted w/o CoV -Darth

Adminned at 12 Dec 2009 14:04:32 UTC

Add a dynastic rule entitled “Brevity”, as follows:

The Djinn shall disregard words in a given Wish after the 25th word.  The Djinn shall be the sole arbiter of how many words are in a given Wish, and may (but is not required to) disclose its standards for counting the number of words in a Wish.

i.e., it is up to the Djinn to decide whether a Wish reading “Award Iepnw III 25 corruption” contains three words, or four, or five.

Part of the point is to avoid the Djinn having to process a 50-page Wish with thousands of subclauses intended to deal with various contingent interpretations.  That’s not a game, it’s my day job.

Players should be encouraged to write 50-page Wishes. Doesn’t matter if you wouldn’t like to process them, as long as Wak is okay with it.

What is this, Twitter? Why are we limiting the length of wishes? If it’s just to save Wak, one of his criteria for failing to grant a wish can be “I got bored while reading it”...
