Proposal: Abductions are still bad

Reached quorum 3-7. Failed by card.

Remove the sentence

If all Explorers that belong to the same Dog Team are able to move to the same Camp, any Explorer that belongs to that Dog Team may move all of that team’s Explorers to that Camp.

from the Ruleset.

I don’t really see a value in this mechanic other than abducting people and abusing it for free rides at the moment.

Maybe it’s worth getting rid of the whole Dog Team rule in that case. It’s mostly clutter now in comparison to the secret identity direction we’re taking.

Cuddlebeam, PSS and I are an intentional team that wishes to move together, although kevan has apparently joined.

I like the mechanic. Maybe if it was reworked so it felt better, sure, but I very much enjoy the collaboration feeling of it.

(I’m likely a bit biased because I’m benefiting from it but I think its a fun thing other people can enjoy as well)

I wouldn’t mind the collaboration, if it didn’t entirely break the movement system.

against If you didn’t mind the collaboration, why remove that rule instead of rewording it?

If the Proposal “Freeze!” passes, Dog Teams will be the only mechanic to save someone from Gunpoint: by “abducting” him out of danger.

<blockquote>If an Explorer is being held at Gunpoint by an Explorer who is at a different Location, they stop being held at Gunpoint.) An Explorer who is being held at Gunpoint may not change their own Location, take Supplies or use Background powers.</blokcquote>

Cpt_koen: I didn’t reword it because I didn’t have time yet, and found removing the exploit to be sufficiently important on its own - a rework can still be proposed.

I gotta disagree with you here, leader. It’s more fun and safer to sled together.
