Proposal: blognomic in technicolor

Timed out and failed, 4-4. Josh

in the rule “Lists” replace each instance of the word “Land” with “{{L}}” and each instance of the word “Foliage” with “{{F}}”.

replace “All Islands have a score for Land,” with “All Islands have an amount of Land tokens, represented by {{L}},”

replace “All Islands have a score for Foliage, which is a non-negative integer that is tracked on the Great Sea page of the wiki and defaults to 0. If an Island’s Foliage would be set higher than an Island’s Land, it is instead set equal to the Island’s Land. ” with “All Islands have an amount of Foliage tokens, represented by {{F}}. If an Island would ever have more {{F}} than {{L}}, they instead have {{F}} equal to their {{L}}.”

replace “All Islands have an Aspect called Land, which has no requirements and defaults to 5.” with “All Island have an Aspect called Land, which has no requirements and tracks the number of Land Tokens {{L}} that they have. An Island defaulst to 5 {{L}}.”

replace “All Islands have an Aspect called Foliage, which has a requirement of Land and defaults to 0.” with “All Islands have an Aspect called Foliage, which has a requirement of Land and tracks the number of Foliage Tokens {{F}} that they have. An Island defaults to 0 {{F}}.”

replace “As an Optional Action, an Island may, once per Turn, either increment their Pressure by 1, or set their Pressure to 0.” with “As an Optional Action, an Island may, once per Turn, either gain {{P}}, or lose all their {{P}}.”

replace “All Islands have a score for Pressure, which is an integer that is tracked on the Great Sea page of the wiki and defaults to 0.” with “All Islands have an amount of Pressure tokens, represented by {{P}}, that is tracked on the Great Sea page of the wiki.”

here’s a link to the sandbox wikipage showing what the affected sentences would look like if this proposal passes. https://wiki.blognomic.com/index.php?title=Sandbox&oldid=11591

Hmm, I’ve just tested these in the dice roller (pasted across they become {Brown token.png+0,Brown token.png+1,Brown token.png+1,Brown token.png+1,Brown token.png+2}) and for some reason they aren’t processed.

And ah, I’ve also tested the current ruleset’s {Land+0,Land+1,Land+1,Land+1,Land+2} and they don’t work either. I don’t have the original code to hand, and don’t remember whether this was deliberate or an oversight - would guess that I maybe worked on allowing (and evaluating) operators within all die rolls, but later backtracked and ruled them out.

I like the icons, but there’s a broader problem of dice roller legibility here.  for but I’ll have a think for my next prop too.

Is there a benefit to having values be expressed as tokens rather than numbers? Seems like numbers with extra steps.

Vovix, I think there was some debate about this in the SCP dynasty but I can’t remember the finer points. One benefit is that tokens ties the game to board game roots: we wouldn’t question having tokens in a board game in this manner. Other than the marginal savings in typing out Foliage vs {{F}} I can’t think of any.

P.S. Won’t be able to take my turn for some hours.

COV against Dice Shelf I think is doing a better job here.

Odd since Dice Shelf accounts for this
