Proposal: They’re Givin’ None Away

Self-killed. -Ornithopter

Adminned at 15 Dec 2009 01:30:22 UTC

Rename Rule 2.3 “Power and Corruption” to “Power, Wealth, and Corruption” and replace it with the following text:

Each Adventurer (as well as the Djinni) has a value for Power, for Wealth, and for Corruption, each of which is Tracked in the GNDT. Each Adventurer begins with 0 Corruption, 3 Power, and 100 Wealth. The Djinni starts with 666 Corruption, ∞ (infinite) Power, and 0 Wealth. An Adventurer’s Power, Wealth, or Corruption may never be less than 0, and their Power may never be more than 18. If an action would normally make an adventurer’s Power, Wealth, or Corruption less than 0, it cannot be taken. If an action would normally make an adventurer’s Power greater than 18, his Corruption is instead increased by 2, and his Power remains (or is increased to) 18.

Adventurers may, as a daily action, do any one of the following:
*reduce their Power by 1 and raise their Wealth by 1000
*reduce their Wealth by 1000 and raise their Power by 1
*raise their Wealth by 10*(their Power)

Add the following to the end of the first bulleted list of Rule 2.2 “Wish Fulfillment”:

*Change any Adventurer’s Wealth to any legal value for that player.

Set the Djinni’s Wealth to 0, and all Adventurers’ Wealth to 100.

Oh, right. I forgot it uses the time you opened the window instead of the time you hit “publish”.

for But the Djinni doesn’t exist because Wak has multiple-personalities or something.

Since there are no illegal wealth values, I could make wealth infinate. And 1000 seems rather high for 1 power. Else, I like the idea.  against

I agree with Wak, but it is nothing that is not fixable with another prop. for

Unless, of course, somone votes for infinate wealth which it is being voted on still (the fix, that is).

I’m sorry Wak, but what? vote? did you mean wish for infinite weath?

Wakukee:

I could give someone infinate wealth if they wished for it. And yes, I meant wish for infinate wealth.

That is what I thought. and yeah you are right (I read it wrong. Thought “*Change any Adventurer’s Wealth to any legal value for that player.” was to be added to the second list.) so CoV:  against

Not having an upper limit was intentional, because, you know, genie. Someone else can just wish you didn’t have infinite wealth.

Will vote for if an upper limit (or at least “any finite value”) is specified. It should be set up so that either Wealth or Power are useful, so that always taking the daily action isn’t the winning strategy.

I voted Against, but I don’t see it’s a big deal anyway… Wealth doesn’t do anything yet. Go ahead and let this pass… and then vote Against any rules that make having loads of money useful. Just because we had Food last Dynasty didn’t mean you needed to have LOTS of it.

tecslicer:

Or the first time someone proposes something that uses it, put a limit on it, and lower everyone’s wealth to that number. So they ONLY have 100,000 wealth, they wished for it.

CoV against for speed. Failing 11-2; Quorum is 13.

Ornithopter, could you kill this to get it over with, please? Rather than wait another 16 hours.

Yeah, I was planning to anyway.
