Sticky Post: Supply Crate #13

The tower block’s residents, or at least some of them, awaken to curious noises from the new crate in the lobby.

Fuelcan • Food • The Bird • Lockbox • The Bird • Crowbar • Blanket

Pokes is the first to investigate.

Proposal: Back of the Queue

In “Stats”, replace “Each Resident has a level of Alertness, being an integer value tracked in the GNDT and defaulting to one.” with:-

Each Resident has a level of Alertness, being an integer value tracked in the GNDT and defaulting to zero. When a Resident unidles after becoming idle earlier in the dynasty, their Alertness is set to zero.

Requiring new and returning players to join the queue next time, rather than jumping into it mid-crate. (There could come a point where it made tactical sense to wake up an old player just to stop a 1.01 Priority Resident from getting to the Crate, which would seem unfair.)

Proposal: Harmer’s Market

Add some Unusual Supplies:-

  • Gas Mask: Clothing (Hat). A Resident wearing a Gas Mask does not lose Health when visiting the Black Market.
  • Head Torch: Clothing (Hat). A Resident wearing a Head Torch receives a +1 Alertness bonus but may not visit the Black Market.
  • Bank Card: A Bank Card counts as a single Money item for the “Purchase Supplies” action.

Proposal: revised new player / long gone unidler contingency plan [Appendix]

Change “Secondly, if a post by a Resident who has been a Resident for fewer than seven days contains the word “Proposal” in its title, but is not a Proposal, and if it has been posted for less than an hour, then any admin may change it to be in the Proposal category.” to

Secondly, if a post by a New Resident is not in any category but follows the wording of a Proposal, in that it has written changes the gamestate and or ruleset, and if it has been posted for less than six hours, then any admin may change it to be in the Proposal category. A New Resident is defined as a Resident who has been a Resident for fewer than seven days or a Resident that has unidled in the past seven days after being idle for at least 3 months.

Allows people who have been gone for a quater the same benefit of this clause as well as expanding the conditions it triggers on to actually be usable.

Decisions, decisions…

I’m going to start work on a new proposal soon. I’m thinking of either improving the Sleeping system, setting bonuses and additional requirements for sleeping, OR, I’m going to propose a fixed version of the fishing system that follows the dynasty conventions, etc. Which would all of you be more interested in?

Sorry for the spelling errors, if there are any. I typed this in a hurry.

Proposal: Sleep Deprivation

reached quorum 5-0 enacted by card

Adminned at 21 Feb 2018 23:19:00 UTC

Remove “If no non-Empty Crate exists, a Resident who is Sleeping but not Knocked Out may Wake Up by setting their Alertness to 1.” from “Stats”.

In Crates, replace “The Government may, and should, also then halve the Hangover of all Residents, rounding toward zero, and then (if the post just made was not a Drop Post) increase the Health of every Knocked Out Resident who was a Dropper of the most recent Drop Post by 6, increase their Hangover by 10 and set their Alertness to 1.” with:-

The Government should also then take the following atomic action, known as Lobbykeeping:-

  • Halve the Hangover of all Residents, rounding toward zero.
  • If the post just made was not a Drop Post, then increase the Health of every Knocked Out Resident who was a Dropper of the most recent Drop Post by 6, increase their Hangover by 10 and set their Alertness to 1.
  • For every Sleeping Resident who commented on the previous Crate post and is not Knocked Out, set their Alertness to 1.

Seems unreasonable that Sleeping Residents have to catch the window between Crates in order to wake up. Let’s make it automatic.

Change “Pills: Consumable. The User gains 3 Alertness, loses 1 Health, and gains 40 Hangover.” to

Pills: Consumable. The User gains 3 Alertness, loses 1 Health if they have more than 1 Health, and gains 40 Hangover.

 

I think it’s unfair for people who just joined to have Food put them to sleep. Similar thing with Pills, since its possible to have no other option than to take the last item in a crate

Cuddlebeam spammed some comments a few minutes before I was able to enact the previous proposal, explaining they were “curious to see what happens, its minor”. It resulted in the Fishing rule being added to the ruleset, even though only two players were in favour of it.

Add an unusual supply to the Supplies list.

Fishing Rod: As a Craction, a Resident carrying a Fishing Rod (Rod) may roll a d12 in the GNDT. If the Resident does not roll a 1, they gain Food equal to the number they rolled divided by three, rounded down.



If a quorum or majority of comments to this post (made before this proposal is passed or failed) contain the phrase “We need extra loot!’‘, Create a new rule, Fishing.

Once a day, a Resident (the Fisher) who has a Rod in their inventory may fish. Fishing is an atomic action that consists of the following: (*) Reduce the Alertness of the Fisher by 2. Roll a d50 in the GNDT. (*)If the number is equal to the Fisher’s current Alertness, the Government may choose an Item from the list of Unusual Supplies. (*) This item is added to the Fisher’s inventory unless his/her inventory is full. (*) If the roll equals the Fisher’s health, the Fisher takes .5 piercing damage. (*) If the roll equals neither, no further action pertaining to this instance of Fishing is taken.

Format the Atomic Action described above into a bulleted list, removing the string ‘(*)’ as many times as it occurs in this rule.

Testing the waters, not sure about this.
Maybe the second bit should be an entirely separate proposal.

Hello!

Hello, everyone! I’m Raena, I’ve been interested in rejoining the nomic community for a while now. I’ve actually played here, under a different name, but I decided to discontinue that account for personal reasons. Even though I did play for a while, I was still very green when it came to actually playing the game, so please try to forgive me if I don’t really pick it up right away. Looking forward to playing with you all.

Add an Unusual Supply to the “Supplies” rule:-

  • Radio: As a Craction, a Resident with a Radio may nominate a single type of Basic or Unusual Supply: upon doing so, this Supply becomes a Requested Supply. If the Government makes a Crate post while there are any Requested Supplies, then the first Unusual Supply of that post’s Crate shall instead be selected at random from all Requested Supplies, and then all Supplies shall cease to be considered Requested Supplies.

In “Crates”, replace “stating which item was taken and summarising the rest of this atomic action” with:-

Proposal: Square Loot

reached quorum 4-0 enacted by card

Adminned at 17 Feb 2018 18:58:36 UTC

If any Residents took more than one Supply from the Crate with the post named “Supply Crate #12”, then each such Resident’s Supplies taken beyond the first in these cases were Misplaced Supplies.

If a Misplaced Supply was a Blueprint, destroy any Blueprints that were added to an inventory as a result of its use, and any Supplies that were added to an inventory as a result of the resultant Blueprints’ use.

If a Misplaced Supply was Food or Tinned Food, remove 1 Health from and add 1 Alertness to the Resident who consumed it.

Add one copy of each Misplaced Supply to the Crate from which it came.

Then, for every Resident who has one or more Misplaced Supplies in their Inventory, remove those Supplies.

Quick fix of the bug that people who took something from a crate prior to Craction Traction enacting hadn’t “Looted” it. This should more or less fix things, without being as boring as just invalidating the Crate.

Replace “perform the Blueprint effect as an extra Craction” with:-

If any Cractions have been taken outside of the atomic action in the “Crates” rule since this proposal was made, undo their effects and set the Health and Alertness of the Residents who took them to zero.

Reproposing addressing Diabecko’s concerns about how much we still need to define Cractions.

Proposal: Craction Replay

In the rule “Crates”, replace everything between (and including) “A Resident (the “Recipient”) may take an item from a Crate” and “any Supplies still inside the Crate cease to exist.” with:-

A Resident (the “Recipient”) has Access to a Crate if:-

  • The Recipient has not already Looted that Crate.
  • There is no other non-Sleeping Resident who has a higher Priority than the Recipient, and who has not yet Looted that Crate.

A Resident who has Access to a Crate may Loot it as an atomic action that consists of the following:

  • Discarding all Timetables that they are carrying.
  • Choosing an Item in that Crate and putting into their inventory. Upon doing so, a single instance of that Item is no longer considered to be inside that Crate.
  • Optionally taking one Craction that they are able to take (or two, if they pay 1 Alertness and 1 Health for this option).
  • Optionally reducing by 1 (to a minimum of 1) the Health of a Resident who has the same Priority as the Resident taking this action, and also the same or greater Hangover.
  • Posting a comment in the relevant Crate blogpost stating which item was taken and summarising the rest of this atomic action.

If a Recipient has had Access to a particular Crate for the past 24 hours, but has not Looted it, then any Resident may set that Resident’s Alertness to zero.

If a Crate has no Supplies inside it, then that Crate is Empty. If there exists a non-Empty Crate and every non-Sleeping non-Knocked Out Resident has Looted that Crate, then any Resident may post a comment to the Crate post announcing that the Crate is being discarded: upon doing so, any Supplies still inside the Crate cease to exist.

Replace “A Craction is an action that is taken as the last step of taking an item from a Crate.” with:-

A Craction is a type of game action.

If any past game Cractions were illegal under the previous wording of that sentence but would not have been so had the sentence had the new wording at the time, consider them to have been legal at the time they were made.

Fixing the wonky “last step” Craction definition that Diabecko pointed out during the most recent crate, and cleaning up Cractions and item-taking in general (requiring a crate comment to describe everything that happened, and giving that process a verb - “to loot”).

A Resident Wearing a Rope may not take dynastic actions that would lower another Resident’s Health, nor may they remove the Rope from their Inventory or cease wearing the Rope. A worn Rope does not count towards a Resident’s Inventory limit.

The dictionary definition of “may” is both “used to express possibility” and “used to express opportunity or permission”. I’m not sure we gain all that much in the long run by limiting BlogNomic’s use of the word to one but never the other, when the plain English meaning will be apparent from context, and when it’s very easy to accidentally or scammingly write (and vote through) a sentence that people read as using the word in the “express possibility” sense.

Arguments like “players may be on fire, players in the furnace catch fire, therefore I stand in the furnace and choose not to exercise my permission to be on fire” should not be endorsed by the appendices, they should be a plainly perverse reading of a rule.

Also adding some clauses to deal with the awkward situation this has left us in - with Card out of the queue but most players seemingly agreeing that this should not be the case, we should let Card take their turn.

Call for Judgment: Wielding and wearing

Reached quorum 4 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 12 Feb 2018 08:51:04 UTC

The current ruletext related to wielding and wearing is the following paragraph:

One Supply in each Resident’s Inventory may be Wielded by that Resident (recorded with an exclamation mark after the Supply’s name in the Inventory), and any number of Clothing Supplies in a Resident’s Inventory may be Worn by that Resident (recorded with an asterisk after the Supply’s name in the Inventory); by default, Supplies are neither Wielded nor Worn. A Resident may change which Supplies they are Wielding and/or Wearing, as a Craction. When a Supply leaves a Resident’s Inventory, it ceases to be Worn or Wielded by that Resident.

I believe this means wielding or wearing an item necessarily requires a craction. The conversation here https://blognomic.com/archive/lockbox_craction_lack_fix goes in this direction (and note that Cuddlebeam gave the craction-limited version to say the items would be worn. Had they thought at the time that items could be worn at any time it was simpler to state that).

In the current crate, Cuddlebeam hit Card twice without having wielded their Crowbar and PineTreeQ hit Card twice but wielded their Nailed Board beforehand without counting that as a craction. If we interpret the rule as I do, than they should have spent a craction to wield before hitting.

If this CfJ is enacted, then all actions currently performed on the crate are considered to not have happened and the effects of those actions are undone.

Furthermore, in the ruleset replace ” A Resident may change which Supplies they are Wielding and/or Wearing, as a Craction” with:

A Resident may change which Supplies they are Wielding and/or Wearing, as a Craction, and this is the only way to change which Supplies are wielded or worn.

Rope currently has two untracked orphan variables (whether or not someone is bound, and who the “User” was who bound them). This reworks it without changing it too much - the only real mechanical change is that a bound Resident can’t attack anyone at all, rather than just the binder.

Change “Nails:” to

Nails: If the User has a Toolbox they may, as a craction, nail the Crate closed and destroy these Nails. When the next Resident takes an item from the Crate, they work together with everyone who has the same priority to open the Crate again and all of those Residents take one less (minimum 0) craction for that crate.

I originally intended the building supplies to be inherently useful so that so that the supplies queue wasn’t filled with useless things that you need to have a single Blueprints item to have any utility. I just couldn’t think of what to write for some of the items.

Replace the ability of Lockbox with:-

A Resident carrying both a Lockbox and a Lockbox Key may choose to unlock the box as a Craction. Upon doing so, the Lockbox and Lockbox Key are removed from their Inventory, and they gain 1 Money.

Maybe it’s worth simplifying Lockboxes even more, as I’m not sure they’re worth the effort right now - you need to get hold of two items, and even if you’re lucky enough to avoid the traps and get anything at all, it’s probably something that you didn’t actually want at that moment. Under the current rules it seems more tempting to bundle the Lockbox and Key up with a third item and take it all down to the Black Market, which will give you 1 Money for it, no questions asked and no dice rolled, 100% of the time.

If no such Resident exists, repeal this rule.

Fixes my other proposal and also keeps the currently existing limitation on duplicates to avoid changing the mechanic and fixing it at the same time (and so ensure this passes).

Replace “Randomly choose a type of Supply (other than Blueprints) from those with the text Blueprints in their name, and add it to your Inventory.”

If no such Resident exists, repeal this rule.

Limiting blueprints to just one player seems too extreme. Also, there is a bug in the Blueprint effect: you can’t ever take the Kindling because there is never a case where all items with Blueprints in their name are in a Residents inventory, since the Blueprints item is choosable. Activating the effect therefore results in obtaining new Blueprints, whose effect can be activated etc. but never stored in the inventory (since it is consumable).

Rule
Each individually numbered section of the ruleset is a rule, including sections that are sub-rules of other rules.

In light that https://blognomic.com/archive/a_little_lesson_cronversation attempted to modify a rule (rule “Choose whether or not to take one Craction that they are able to take.”) which doesn’t exist, because the target was merely a quote from a rule but not a rule itself, much how like a banana peel isn’t a banana itself.

Amend “Choose whether or not to take up to the number of different Cractions that they are able to take, that is the number of people that have previously taken an item from the crate. The first person to take an item can choose to take one extra craction that they are able to take also.” to:

Choose whether or not to take one Craction that they are able to take.
