Proposal: Word Count Mk. 2

Timed out 11 votes to 2. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 16 Mar 2009 23:32:08 UTC

In Rule 2.2 Acts, replace the words

‘a Script (a text summary of the scene which cannot exceed 25 words)’

with

‘a Script (a text summary of the scene which cannot exceed 50 words)’.

for but will this change be retroatively applied to invalid scenes, or are they not in Gamestate to be retroactively applied to BECAUSE they are invalid? Discuss?

In the one case: The scenes are invalid, the scenes are not scenes by the definition of a scene. Therefore (assuming this proposal passes [please!]) and the scene continues to be invalid, I am free (since my die roll is still valid) to repeat the scene word for word.

In the other case: The scenes are validated by the change of the rules (hopefully!) and thus no amendments need be made (except to the body counts of those involved).

In *either* case: It is easier just to assume that the scenes are validated, to save both time and space.

against Nah, the purpose of the word limit is to keep the Scenes from being too complicated. I think the fewer words, the better.

Also, congrats to Influenza for not doing the Proposal:Proposal thing.  : P

As it is now, the scenes have next to no description in them (at least the valid ones) and that’s not surprising, given the tiny word limit. 50 is not many words, it still doesn’t allow insane amounts of things to happen, however it does allow the necessary amount of description to make the scene have any meaning of any kind.

*Disagrees, but that’s why we vote on it*
