Proposal: Chart of Darkness

unpopular 1-7 with 3 defs failed by card

Replace “Dynastic data is recorded in the GNDT and in an Excel spreadsheet. The spreadsheet consists of” with:-

The Chart is

And remove “This grid is called the Chart.”

Replace “Recorded on the squares of the Chart are Vessels (and their Facings), Shots and Objects. Vessels are recorded with an identity code in the format “[Initial of Vessel Type][Unique number](Facing)”. For example, B1(N) for a Battleship facing North.” with:-

Each Vessel, Shot and Object has a Location, being a square on the Chart. These Locations are tracked privately by the Admiral.

Clarifying that the Chart isn’t public (if that’s right - I assume we aren’t trying to track the “dynastic data” of Vessel positions publicly in the GNDT?) and leaving the Admiral free to use any notation they wish to keep track of Chart positions.

So the Chart is visible to the public, but only the Admiral can edit it. I thought I could post the chart updates on the wiki page and post links on the blog.
The GNDT I thought could be used to show which vessel belonged to who.

My mistake, then. I was taking the “Battleships” theme literally and assuming that we’d begin the game not knowing where our opponents’ ships were.

Ah I didn’t read your comment properly. Nevermind, your re-phrasing here is much better than my original, so we can alter the ‘privately’ bit of this proposal later if we like.

We lose some useful information in the new wording. I think the old was better, if we don’t go private with the Chart.

Actually quite good if a “Radar” rule is appended. imperial
