Proposal: Can We Compromise?

Sabotaged. Failed by Kevan.

Adminned at 03 Feb 2015 08:42:49 UTC

In the rule “Trials”, add to the end of the paragraph beginning “A Trial is a Votable Matter…”:

Posting a Trial is a Cerebral action.

Add the following text to the rule “Sabotage”:

Sabotage is always a Strenuous action.

Between 24 hours and 72 hours after the enactment of this rule the ship’s computer shall send a private message to each Android player informing them of the usernames of all other Androids and change:

Each Crewmember may either be a Human or an Android, defaulting to Human. This is tracked privately by the Ship’s Computer. If there are more than five Crewmembers and fewer than two Androids, the Computer may convert a randomly-selected Human to an Android and privately inform that Crewmember that their sense of humanity had been simulated up to this point.

The Computer maintains a private list of scanned Crewmembers. If a Crewmember has never been Scanned, the Computer may Scan them by privately rolling a ten-sided die. On a roll of 1 or 2, the Crewmember becomes an Android and is privately informed of this fact. After the Computer Scans a Crewmember, it shall make a blog post saying it has done so.

If there’s one action that shouldn’t be Cerebral for game-quality reasons, it’s making a Trial.  Because there’s a huge incentive for someone who just lost a Trial to attack the players responsible.

If there’s one action that should be Cerebral, it’s Sabotaging a Proposal.  Because the GNDT layer of the game shouldn’t be able to interfere with the proposal-voting layer.

This makes Android-discovery trivial and uninteresting: all we have to do is injure people one by one, which affects nothing except sabotage. No fun cat and mouse in that. against

against I do think Sabotage should be Strenuous, though.

Wait, no, that doesn’t mean what I thought it did. It just shouldn’t be Cerebral.
