Proposal: 28 Hays Later

Timed out without achieving a majority of FOR votes, and thus failed. Josh

Change “The Dead” to the following:

A Zombie is characterized by:

* a Name, that shall be the name of an Idle Player, and shall be different from any other existing Zombie’s Name.
* a Species, that may be any of those listed in the rule “Species”.
* an Attack value.
* a Health, which begins at the starting value specified by its Species.
* a Location, which must be a Square in a Plot. It shall be written as Abc(C|R), where Abc is the name of the Farmer owning the Plot where the zombie is located, and (C|R) indicates the Square.
* a Cost, which must be a positive amount of Juice.

The Location of each Zombie shall be listed together with its Health and Species in the Garden Patch page, immediately below the Plot where they are located.

A Farmer may Create a Zombie by spending its Species’ Cost in Juice, selecting a legal Name for it and placing it at an empty Square of their choice on any Plot.

Any Farmer may cause all Zombies to Shamble, but only if they have not done so in the last 24 hours. When a Zombie Shambles, the Behaviour specified by its Species is carried out once. The Farmer who carries out this action may select the order in which Zombies Shamble.

No Farmer may Create any Zombies at any time.

Add “Cost: 5 Juice” to the entry of each Species of Zombie, and change “Starting attack” to “Attack”.

The last paragraph is needed for protection until we a) figure out what ‘attack’ means, and b) have a way of killing Zombies.

“an empty Square of their choice on any Plot.”
I don’t like this part.
“Any Farmer may cause all Zombies to Shamble, but only if they have not done so in the last 24 hours”
So we may have 25 Shambles a day. Not sure if it’s your intention, but I think it would be way too fast.
So,  for and I’ll propose a fix.

for “if they have not done so in the last 24 hours” is ambiguous - is the “they” the singular-they of the Farmer, or the plural-they of the Zombies?

[Kevan] I was sure we were speaking about the Zombies…

against I agree that multiple farmers should not be able to shamble within the same day.

[Yoda] Maybe we should make a fix proposal rather than shoot this one down. Things are getting slow since we’ve less than 10 Proposals in queue :)

My god, that’s how we define slow now?

against We can make a fix proposal even if this one is shot down.

“No Farmer may Create any Zombies at any time.”

Wha…

[aguydude] We can, but if the broken rule definitely isn’t badly broken, then we might as well start using it - we can see how the mechanic plays out, and start making other proposals to build on it, quite apart from the fix. This seems more fun than waiting a couple of days for a fixed version.
