Proposal: Bleat-ch and ink (Amendment to Bleat-ch and the Sun)

Reaches Quorum 1-13 and Fails. ~lilomar

Adminned at 16 Apr 2011 17:02:58 UTC

Add the following after Dynastic Rule 2.6:

2.7 Bleat-ch and Ink


Every 168 hours (the hours in a week), any Sheep may purchase one (1) of the following items:


Bleat-ch = This item changes the color of a sheep from black to white.
Ink = This item changes the color of a sheep from white to black.


These items both cost 2 Baabucks each. You must have 2 Baabucks to purchase either of them. This is non-negotiable. In addition, the Baabucks used to purchase the item will immediately be removed from the current game.

I don’t particularly like 168 hours compared to “weekly action”. Also, it’s not particularly clear to me what happens to the “item” after it is “purchased”. Is its effect immediately activated? Does it matter that that is not explicit?

I’d have thought it would be cleaner to say something like, “As a weekly action, a sheep may reduce their Baabucks by two and change their color”.

I’m open to an item mechanic but this isn’t one.

Still,  imperial unless someone gives me a better reason either way.

I feel bad for continually shooting your proposals down, but beside wording problems - and the fact that the proposal doesn’t tell you what to do with the items, whether they’re used automatically or stored and tracked or what is a big issue - I just don’t like it much as a mechanic. I don’t think that sheep should be able to change their colour at will. So,  against

against This also seems to have changed to allow the bleaching of any Sheep, which seems a bit much.
