Proposal: Arson around

Self-killed. — Quirck

Add a new subrule to “The Garage” called “Desperate Times”:

As a daily action, a Crook may attempt to torch the Garage of any other Crook by rolling DICE10 (or DICE10+1 if they own the relevant Key).  If they roll a ten or above all items contained within the Garage are destroyed, rolling a nine allows the Crook to destroy a single item of their choice.  If the Crook rolls lower than nine they will be Hospitalised.  Crooks may only attempt to torch a Garage as their first action of the day and attempting to do so excludes them from taking any other actions for the remainder of the day, regardless of their current Status

Add a new rule called “It’s A Hard Knock Life”:

Each Crook has a Status which is tracked Status field of the GNDT.  The status of each Crook if Free by default.

A Free Crook may take any actions permitted by the ruleset.

A Hospitalised Crook is unable to take any regular actions other than proposing and voting on rules until they are fully healed, at which point their Status resets to Free.  Hospitalised Crooks may roll DICE2 as a daily action, returning their Status to Free if they roll a two.

Just an attempt at adding some drastic measures for the late game.

The “first action of the day” rule seems hard to enforce.  imperial

imperial Nice ideas, but “actions” is definitely too strong, and should probably only apply to Dynastic Rules. If all the admins were hospitalised, we would no longer have any way to enact proposals.

I’ll hold off voting on this for now, but a patch proposal would sway my vote.

Possible scam:  “I’m Free, so this rule lets me do X because other rules let someone else do X.”  (This sort of thing has been attempted repeatedly in That Other Nomic.)

Not worried about all admins becoming hospitalised; even if it happens, each of them has a 50/50 chance per day of healing up.

Ha, good point Murphy - declarations of victory are permitted by the ruleset.

against but I’m basically in favour of the broad thrust of this proposal and would like to see it again, fixed.
