Proposal: Another Pass at the DRC

timed out, final vote 6-0—Yoda

Adminned at 25 May 2008 06:26:49 UTC

If the proposal “Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with your new Dimensional Rift Container” passes, this proposal does nothing.

Add a sub-rule titled “Containment” to the rule “Container Fields” with the following text:

As a weekly action, a DDA member may make a story post with the text “Contain” followed by the name of an un-contained Planar Entity at the beginning of the title.  Any DDA member may then make a comment to that entry that includes an integer number of energy cells whose absolute value does not exceed that DDA member’s Energy statistic.  That DDA member shall then subtract the absolute value of the number in his comment from his energy statistic.

After 24 hours have passed since the story post was posted, any Admin may resolve the post by adding up all the numbers in the comments.  If the total is less than 30, the Planar Entity has escaped.  If the total is greater than or equal to 30, the Planar Entity has been contained and the text “(Contained)” is appended to the end of that Planar Entity’s entry in the “Planar Entities” wiki page.

What is the point of containing them, though?  In fact, what is the point of not containing them?

What is the point of having spacecraft?  We don’t have any use for it right now, so why do we need it?

Actually, tech attachments would make containment have rewards, but perhaps there should be an element of chance in this rule.

There is an element of battle in that you can add or subtract from the current energy level counts, but either way you are spending your own energy.  Maybe we can have opposing sides trying to keep certain Planars from being contained.  We would have to make several of those teams (probably 3-5), with one team trying to protect the Planar while the others try to contain it.  We should also have one or two admins per team just to make it fair.

for Ok, I feel it has a loophole tho.

Also, I feel 30 is too large a number. Perhaps 20? Or perhaps make it be twice as quorum? If this passes i’ll try to amend it that way.
