Proposal: BobaNomic

Timed out and enacted 6-0. Josh

Adminned at 16 Mar 2022 11:26:04 UTC

Add the following as a new Special Case rule, called Bounties [Rare][Active]:

A Bounty Notice is a post in the Story Posts category which broadly requests a single mechanical or ruleset change. A Bounty Notice may be Open or Closed, being Open by default and being when set to the ‘Closed’ category in the post backend.

This sentence names, at the end of this sentence after a colon, a single dynastic resource or variable, which is the Bounty Reward Variable for this dynasty: Qubits

The Space Maestro may post a Bounty Notice, close an open Bounty Notice, or change the Bounty Reward Variable in this rule at any time.

If the Space Maestro believes that an enacted votable matter satisfies the demand of an open Bounty Notice then they may iterate the Bounty Reward Variable of that votable matter’s author by a single step (unless that author was themselves) and set that Bounty Notice to closed.

Some players want to propose stuff but don’t know what to propose. This is just to incentivise proposing from players who might need a little nudge.

This is an interesting one, but I’m wondering if the amount it can change by should be able to vary? For instance if you set the reward variable to Paradox, you might want to reward with a decrease rather than an increase.
It could be in the form of Qubits [1], or Paradox [-1] or Coins [100] etc.

Yeah I thought about that. I settled on “iterate once” because not every variable will be numeric, and I couldn’t find words around “improve value by a reasonable amount at the Emperor’s discretion” that plays nicely with the Malign Emperors phase we’re currently in.
