In rule Trading, add to the list of bullet-points after “Any Commoner may agree to a “Trade Offer” if all of the following are true:”
* He did not post the trade offer himself.
If any commoner completed a trade offer he himself made prior to the passing of this proposal, revert that trade. If any actions a commoner made after such a trade would be illegal if the trade had not been completed, revert them as well.
Suppose I have 10 iron, and post a trade offer of 10 iron for 10 iron. This satisfies the conditions for a legal trade offer. If I then complete this trade offer myself, I have to:
1: Append “Completed by Purplebeard” to the trade offer
2: Reduce my Iron (Sought Resource) by 10. I now have 0 iron.
3: Reduce my Iron (Offered Resource) by 10 again. This would leave me at -10 iron, but the Glossary sets it at 0 iron instead as game variables cannot be negative unless otherwise specified.
4 and 5: Increase my Iron by 20.
I now have 20 Iron, 10 more than I started out with. I can then post a new trade offer for 20 Iron, and repeat at nauseam.
