Proposal: A very minor ruleset fix

Failed by Hix

Adminned at 03 Sep 2007 07:20:24 UTC

Add the following to Rule 1.8, Dynasties:

Unless explicitly stated in the Tokyo’s ascension address, or contradicted by another rule in the ruleset, the Tokyo is always a type of Kaiju God, and may do anything that a Kaiju God may do.

Unless I’m going nuts, that’s currently not explicit. I was wondering whether I could currently join in the exquisite corpse games, but then got to wondering whether I could actually make proposals.

Crap, this proposal may even be illegal.

I don’t think we really need anything this elaborate.  The Tokyo is definitely a Kaiju God already.  Even if it’s not explicity stated, it is certainly implied just about every time “Tokyo” appears (most notably in the first sentence of Rule 1.9).

If you’re worried, I think it would be best to simply change “Each Dynasty is headed by a single Tokyo” into “Each Dynasty is headed by a single Kaiju God, known as the Tokyo”.

Implication is fine, but if you turn it around, I think that a very strong CfJ case could be made to prevent Tokyo from doing just about anything in future. Rule 1.9, for example, does not make clear whether the Kaiju God assumes the role of Tokyo, in which case remains a Kaiju God, or becomes Tokyo, in which case becoming a seperate class altogether. Perhaps there is a more elegant way of preventing this, but I do not think that actually making it explicit is actually a bad thing.

against Odd, we must just have lost that somewhere along the way. Hix’s wording is much easier, and this sounds more like “urgent attention” CfJ territory than anything. I’ll put one up.

against due to the existing CfJ.

against Self-kill, as the CfJ does it better.
