Proposal: Bill Dings

Times out and passes, 7-0. Enacted by Brendan.

Adminned at 02 Sep 2021 19:25:52 UTC

Create a new rule called “Buildings”:

Cells have a Public Task (publicly tracked) and a Secret Task (privately tracked by the Ministry of Information).
As a Cyclical Action, a Cell can change their Public Task or Secret Task to any of their choice. If the Secret Task is to be changed in that action, then action is performed by unambiguously and privately informing the Ministry of Information of it. A Public Task can be the name of any Public Building. A Secret Task can be the name of any Secret Building.

At the end of each Cycle, each Building gains 10 Progress per current Cell Task that names it.

There are Public Buildings (publicly tracked) and Secret Buildings (privately tracked by the Ministry of Information). Buildings have a Progress amount (defaulting to 0), and a Progress Requirement (defaulting to 100). When a Building reaches their Progress Requirement, their Effect takes place.

The following are the Public Buildings, their Progress Requirement in brackets and then their Effect:
- Town Hall [300]: All Cells become Leaders.
- Earthlink Tower [400]: Repeal this rule.
- Drone Wave [100]: Set this Building’s Progress and the Progress of the Secret Building with the least Progress to 0.
- Copbot Wave [100]: Set this Building’s Progress and the Progress of the Secret Building with the most Progress to 0.

The following are the Secret Buildings, their Progress Requirement in brackets and then their Effect:
- Domination Lab [200]: All Cells that are Leaders cease to be Leaders, then Cell/s that contributed the most Progress to this Building become Leader/s.
- Underground Wiretapping [150]: The Cell/s that contributed the most Progress to this Building become Leader/s. Set all other Secret Building Progress to 0.
- Newspaper Machine [100]: The Cell/s that contributed the most Progress to this Building become Leader/s.
- Underground Bombs [200]: Set the Progress of the Public Building with the most Progress to 0.

A Cell is a Leader or not (defaulting to not), this is privately tracked by the Ministry of Information. Non-Leaders cannot achieve victory.

You slip from using “Private” to “Secret” for the secret stuff, there.

interesting!! if this passes i definitely want to see it changed a bit (maybe brendan’s Adherents rule could come into play!), but greentick bc it’s a neat foundation we can build on :o

(i am bothered by the fact that some of these buildings’ names suggest events/resources rather than locations, tho)

I also think that Adherents should be allocated to jobs rather than buildings getting a flat increase

i agree w/ josh! maybe this could use a conditional for the heat sheet passing? if not, maybe a followup proposal

I like Buildings, they feel like they probably have more narrative potential than Projects.

i agree w/ kevan here, it’s just that some of these ‘buildings’ couldve easily been named differently to sound more like buildings

for regardless tho :0
