Proposal: All’s Well that Ends in Hell

Timed out and failed, 1-3. Josh

In the rule “Final Destination”, change “If the GPS would create a Stop with an Order number that is equal to the Final Destination Number” to

If any Tripper (or the GPS) would knowingly create a Stop with an Order number that is equal to the Final Destination Number

And in order to be thorough, in the rule “Road Map”, change “the GPS may repeal this paragraph” to

any Tripper (or the GPS) may repeal this paragraph

Due to https://blognomic.com/archive/the_open_road allowing any player to create stops, there’s a chance we could skip right by Stop 66 without the GPS making it the Final Destination.

If Doom Foretold fails, the Final Destination number will remain a secret held only by the GPS, so mere mortals won’t know if they’ve reached it.

Hmm. How about I just add the word “knowingly”, and call it a day. If Doom Foretold fails, we already needed a fix for that.

I feel like this would ideally be “if Doom Foretold fails, this does nothing”.

As it is, I’ m holding my vote until I know how Doom Foretold has gone.

I’m not sold that this relies on Doom Foretold to be useful. I was just assuming Doom would pass, and so I wasn’t clear about what it did. We might still need a fix, down the line, if Brendan elects to generate a hidden F.D. number.
