Proposal: A Fleeting Interest

Reaches Quorum 7-1. -RaichuKFM

Create new rule entitled “Fleets”

Captains may control one or more Commanders. A Commander is a gameplay entity that is treated as a Captain for the purposes of all Dynastic Rules except for this rule. The set of a Captain and the Commanders they control may be referred to as a Fleet. A Captain whose Fleet contains three or more Commanders is an Admiral.

A Captain may perform any action (governed by the dynastic rules) on behalf of a Commander they control. If a Commander’s Ship Class is ever “-”, that Commander is deleted. If a Captain’s Ship class becomes “-”, their fleet disperses and all Commanders controlled by that Captain are deleted.

As a Weekly Action, a Captain may Hire a new Commander by making a post to that effect and spending 1 Gold, 1 Silver, 1 Aluminum, 1 Dilithium and 1 Tritatium. This post may (and should) be processed by an admin once by adding the new Commander to the GNDT under the hiring Captain’s name, appended with a number. The Commander starts in the same Position as the hiring Captain with a Ship Class of Shuttle, with default values for all other variables. After the post is processed the hiring Captain may begin performing actions for the new Commander.

Append to the first paragraph of the rule entitled “Combat”:

If the Defender is part of a Fleet, half of the Firepower of every member of the same Fleet who share their Position is added to theirs for the purposes the Raiding action. Only the end result is rounded down, not the individual contributions.

Append to the rule entitled “Resources”:

A Captain may transfer Resources to another Captain within the same Fleet at any time, provided they share a Position.

Add “Shuttle” to the list of valid Ship Classes in “Spaceships” and add it to the table in “Specifications” with a Speed of 2, a Firepower of 3 and a Hold of 5.

for I had something similar in mind but this is a better formulation of it.

against No!  If Commanders ~= Captains, that means they could participate in voting as well.  I’m not really interested in another voting mechanic.

They only count for dynastic rules, so voting is unaffected.
