Proposal: Catchhome

Veto of a Self-Kill. - Qwazukee

Adminned at 30 Jun 2009 22:20:38 UTC

Add a new rule called “Fed-ex delivers” and give it the following text

There exists an entity called “Wilson” which is listed in the GNDT as if it where a Tourist. Wilson is a volleyball and cannot take any actions unless the rules explicitly state so on each of those actions. In those cases, that rule must determine which Tourist shall be the one that must make the appropriate gamestate changes (including making posts, modifying the GNDT or rolling dice) to complete that action. Those actions must always be clearly labeled as performed by Wilson.

As a daily action, a tourist may talk with Wilson. To do this, e makes a story post detailing his conversation with the volleyball. If, after four hours, no other tourist has commented on the post within the four hours after the post was made, the tourist who posted it may reduce their stress by one. If this would make their stress below zero, it is instead set to zero. He must do this within forty eight hours of making the original post or not do it at all. However, within four hours of the post being made, any other tourist may make a comment on the post. After doing so, the tourist must increase the tourist who made the original post’s stress by two. If this would make their stress above twenty, it is instead set to twenty.

it doesn’t say “only the first tourist may raise the posters stress” so one post could max someones stress

no amni: your stress can be reduced to zero indefinitely. In fact it gives you a 44 hour period where nothing can increase your stress, because you can keep reducing it arbitrarily. The second loophole is to try to cover the first one.
