Change the text in rule 2.3 “Drunkenness” from

As long as their AC is greater than 0, each Earthling (and the Professor) may decrease their own AC by 1 as a weekly action. As long as their AC is lower than 5, each Earthling (and the Professor) may increase their own AC by 1 as a weekly action.

to

At the beginning of each week each Earthling’s AC is decreased by 1, as long as their AC is greater than 0. As long as their AC is lower than 5, each Earthling may increase their own AC by 1 as a weekly action.

Add the following text to the end of rule 2.3 “Drunkenness”

When an Earthling is Drunk, they are considered to be one level lower in each Skill, minimum 0, for the purposes of other rules.

Also change all instances of the word Drunk to Inebriated.

 

Professor, I’ve always found that I become sober over time with out any effort of my own. Why is that?

Also while I am drunk I can’t seem to do things very well.

“At the beginning of each week each Earthling’s AC is decreased by 1” - who does that? What happens if an Earthling doesn’t do it themselves?

Josh: It happens automatically; it updates the gamestate directly and presumably any Earthling passing along should be kind enough to update the GNDT. I don’t know if BN has a history of this sort of thing, but Agora does and we certainly haven’t had issue with it.

BN does have a history with this sort of thing, yes. While the gamestate does update automatically, experience shows that passing Earthlings tend not to update the GNDT unless the ruleset obliges them to.

against Per Josh. It saves hassle if we define how a mechanic happens and what happens if we forget to do it. Otherwise we have to CfJ our way out of a great big mess of illegal gamestate, when a couple of players absent-mindedly perform a bunch of game actions without realising that Drunkeness hadn’t been updated in the GNDT.

against per previous people, and how do you get AC above 1 if you get it lowered every week?

@glopso you can raise your AC with coppro’s prop.

Also I currently do not know of a way to automatically make gamestate change when something triggers it. This is what I am trying to do and think should be done, if you know how to do that i would love to hear it.
