Proposal: Delayed Gratification

Reached quorum 9 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 13 Sep 2020 19:04:22 UTC

Add a subrule to “Turns” called “Delayed Rules” and give it the following text

Any rule that begins with the text “DELAY:” is considered to be a Delayed Rule. The contents of a Delayed Rule are all flavour text. Additionally, if the line of a dynastic rule begins with the text “DELAY:” that line is also considered to be flavour text.

Add the following to the start of the list of steps performed in the atomic action done when performing Generate Time:

Remove the text “DELAY:” from the title of any rule which begins with “DELAY:” or from the any line of a dynastic rule where the line begins with “DELAY:”


Right now adding a new action people can take is a bit unfair to players who have already taken their turn. The goal of this proposal is to give us a way of adding rules that only kick in at the start of the next round.

for Although the “or” in the second clause seems ripe for exploitation by a timing-based scheme.

@Brendan a fair point, should probably clarify the OR is inclusive there, forcing you to remove all of them, not “pick one”

[Clucky] It should really say “every” instead of “any”, because that also sounds like “pick one”.
