Proposal: Blogo Raffle

Times out and passes 3-2-1 -Larrytheturtle

Create a rule called Raffle with the following text.

Whenever a Scribe is in the Lottery Room, as a weekly action that Scribe may “Write their name on a ticket” by making a comment in the GNDT of “Enter Raffle” and reducing their paper by 1. A Scribe can only perform this action if they have at least 1 paper. After a scribe performs this action, their name is appended to the list of Entries in this rule. Each name must be placed on a new line to ensure readability. When the Editor makes a weekly report, if the Entry List in this rule contains the name of at least 1 Scribe, they must choose a Scribe whose name is on the list of Entries at random. The chosen Scribe gains an amount of paper equal to the number of names in this rule’s Entry List plus one. Immediately afterwards, they must remove all names from the Entries list in this rule.

Entry List:

Mostly just messing around here. According to game theory, with stress being a factor there would be no logical reason to make an entry if it were just equal to number of entries, hence the plus one.

note: probably be good to be explicit about the random method used here.

Note: Cue Brendan posting ‘:D FOR’. But actually rule 3.3.1 has that covered by default:

If a number or other game variable is selected ‘at random’ or ‘randomly’ from a range of possible values, its value shall always be taken from a uniform probability distribution over the entire range of possible values, unless otherwise specified. This value must be determined by an appropriate DICE roll in the GNDT, unless otherwise specified.

Note: This makes the Editor unable to make a legal weekly report when the Entries list is empty.

Note: Oh, that’s pretty big problem. Gonna fix that.
